Against Me! "New Wave"

Anyone heard the whole record? I'm checking a coupla tunes out on their Myspace page right now, and even after the Myspace Music codec it still sounds friggin' huge!!

And I'm surprised I actually kinda dig the music...I had em pegged as a pop punk band or something. This actually sorta reminds me of the last American Steel record.

I think I'll go buy it this afternoon.

What do they sing about now that they can't write about not being sell outs and signing to a major?

Um...is that what they used to sing about? Like I said, this was the first time I'd heard the band.

As for "selling out", I think that's a really narrow-minded way of thinking of it. While I realize that Sire Records is now owned by Warner Bros, I can name a lotta rockers who would LOVE to be on the (once independent) label that signed bands like the Dead Boys and the Ramones. There's a lotta history there. Plus, of course, I'm sure the money's pretty good...

Anyway, weren't they on Fat Wreck Chords or something before? I mean, really, is Sire that much of a "sell out" at that point?

The band's just gonna get broader exposure, bigger recording budgets (obviously, if this new record is any indication), better tour support, and probably they'll get laid a lot more.

I think it's really easy to be DYI and such when you're 18, but y'know, reality's gonna set in sometime, right? Why not try to make a living doing what you love when the opportunity presents itself?

Anyway, this could turn into an argument that could go on forever. All I'm saying is I like what I heard, and all I was asking is does the rest of the album kick as much ass.

Sorry for the tirade. Have a nice day.
