maybe cuz another seatown RPster posted this pic, but damn and wow this looks a lot like one of my college party houses -  just north of 50th on Brooklyn....course they're all gone now w/ apartments up instead.

And maybe I'm one of the few that REALLy like Sam's voice....true I haven't listened to a full album as yet so maybe it get's tiresome when you flip the record? 

Long Live RP!!

The singer sounds like a cross between Bryan Ferry and Simon Bar Sinister.

New Year's Day (U2) + A Forest (The Cure) + Shitty Voice = Future Islands

The problem is that it just needed to be louder.  Careful.

Second that motion.  Every time it comes on I look up to see if it is something new from the x-bauhausien.

It seems record companies sign up groups/ singers that are "off from the norm", but they wear a bit thin quite quickly. If you see this guy performing that point may arrive even earlier.

Strange vocals... but at least this guy doesn't sing just like everyone else.

It's already old.

exactly chord changes and tempo of U2's "New Years Day"

 
Yes, the same (3-chord) chord progression (different key) in the verses, different progression in the chorus.  When it comes to tempo, just about every Future Islands song has this tempo, and this one's tempo is faster than that of U2's song.
