BFF album: complete
« on: July 09, 2012, 02:52:49 AM »
Surprised there isn't a thread or at least a post, as far as I can see, on this particular topic.

The album's done!  People have heard it!  Apparently it's great (surprise)!  Exciting, no?

Who heard it?  Are there any articles out there? I haven't seen anything yet.

Industry people. Twitter seems to indicate that Folds shared the album with Amanda Palmer. Looking forward to September...

And he just posted a 2000+ word review on Facebook of it.

I think Darren said in an interview somewhere with Spinner they're doing a version of "Time" for the album (wasn't sure why and I think I agree with that).  And also that the one girl from Pomplamoose or whatever it is is featured on one of the songs -- he didn't seem too wild about it, and I'm inclined to agree (again), though I'll hold final judgement 'til I hear the song, haha.

Any idea where that interview could be found?  Time is my favorite Folds song, would love some confirmation.
I know it's Pit.

Apparently Spinner.com.  It's blocked at my work though.

Wow. TSOTLOTM is even longer than TUBORM. And it sounds like an REM lyric.

Awesome cover though!

i don't even care. i am so not picky with this release, just excited that it's even happening.
i'm sure we'll all call it Mind or something of that nature anyways.

i'd love some confirmation too. confirmation that this is false. that'd be the stupidest idea ever. the band gets together after 13 years and ends up re-recording a song off of Ben's second solo album? i hope to god that's not true. I'd be ok with them playing it live, but the song exists already and is just fine.

I'll be pronouncing it "TSOTT LOH-TM" with a soft initial T.
