PAUL AND THE PATIENTS



In case you haven't noticed, I haven't really updated this blog in a while. I basically just Twitter now, and that's all. But right now, just in case there are people who read this and not that... I am exploding with the need to talk about a band I am fucking obsessed with right now: Paul and the Patients

I share an office with these wonderful girls named Jennifer and Jessica and they're always playing Paul and the Patients and I'm always walking into their office and asking who it is... always assuming that it's either some new or unheard Longpigs song. In fact, I remember once when they were playing their song "Complaint 15" I turned to Joanna and said "I love the Longpigs!"

Unfortunately (or strategically), "Complaint 15" cuts off on their MySpace, but that's ok because it's on iTunes.

I also really loved the song "Blogspot" so I typed out the lyrics and stuck them on here since this is a blogspot.

"Blogspot"
you've done your very best
we're gonna put it to the test
and everyone
will tell everybody
got a very different sound
and the world will gather round
and everyone
will tell everybody
your singer's very tall
he seems to have it all
and everyone
can see his body
you got the very best guitars
your dressed by many stars
and you will sound
just like everybody

tell them all
tell them something, where to go, and what it's all about
tell them how to feel when they shout it out
tell everybody
tell them all
tell them something how to tip when they buy their drink
tell them how to trip when they try to think

it went just like it should
response was very good
and everyone
saw everybody
they've all been wearing shirts
which caused a trend alert
and everyone
saw everybody

tell them all
tell them something, where to go, and what it's all about
tell them how to feel when they shout it out
tell everybody
tell them all
tell them something how to tip when they buy their drink
tell them how to trip when they try to think
and everybody
tell everybody else
tell everybody else
and everyone
tell everybody else
tell everybody else
tell everybody else

the problem with this plan
it has a short lifespan
and everyone
knows everybody
so you should take your band
over to japan
you have some diehard fans
everybody

tell them all
tell them something, where to go, and what it's all about
tell them how to feel when they shout it out
tell everybody
tell them all
tell them something how to tip when they buy their drink
tell them how to trip when they try to think
and everybody
tell everybody else
tell everybody else
and everyone
tell everybody else
tell everybody else
tell everybody else

tell lots of people
but not too many

I just checked your Twitter and eek...you have 12 updates just from yesterday. A lot of people check your blog for music recommendations and aren't willing to sift through 10+ status updates a day.

Not hating on you, but in this scenario (you being the writer of a blog that is read by lots of people that you don't know), Twitter kind of doesn't have the same effect as a blog post would. But whatever, it's your time and effort.

I've been listening to this ep non stop as well as a bunch of demos of Paul's ... great post ...

So I think I follow u on twtr & somehow today decided to check out ur blog -LIKE IT! I love blending music w/experience and in fact, its the goal of my primitive lil blog Between Time & Dreams (titled after lyrics in a Dave Matthews Band song). I prefer to twit too (as I have a short attention span) but have found not many people are motivated enough to interact much on either. Sadly so. Nice to meet you friend!

Apart from this post, I have gone through almost all of your posts these are really very advantageous and unique, keep it up

please!

Well, my name is Eva, I am enjoying my motherhood and I am spending wonderful times with my baby. Whenever I get time I used

to surf net because I also run a dating website, according to my knowledge for the right person, online dating can be a very effective alternative to traditional dating. Not only does it

provide the convenience of getting to know someone in front of your computer, but it also will help ensure that you meet

someone who shares similar interests. It's important to keep in mind that there are a number of different things that one can

do to increase the chances of successful dating in the online world.

Paul and The Patients write songs that blend dark melodies and brooding dissonance, yet remain buoyed by propulsive rhythms that kick along and deftly keep them from sinking into utter oblivion. The compositions fit the blurred memories of late night outings to poorly lit bars, and the guilty gray mornings that follow them. To The Lions, also channels the unease that palpitates below the surface of the excesses of modern day America.
