Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but Kintsugi (the name of this album) is, according the Wikipedia, "is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise." Super good name for an album.

so melancholy. Influence of his divorce from actress Zooey Deschanel in 2012, maybe.

I think that, like Spinal Tap, they've gone through a number of drummers, but the current one has been with them since 2003. He's really good: I often find the drums to be my favorite part of a DCFC song.

Their drummer is immensely talented, and actually very respected in the percussion world (I know, I know, are we listening to the same DCFC?)

His parts are always creative with a capital C, especially on these softer and creepier tracks.

I am not all that crazy about DCFC, and this is a solid 9.  I am definitely buying this album now.

DCFC has just bought shares in RP, or what?    airplay seems to be thrugh the roof.   most songs seem to be very creepy when over listened.   I can see why she left him now.

Anyone else hear Willie Nelson on this one? I mean that in a positive sense.

 
Ha ha...I just made the same comment and then said to myself....hmmm I wonder if someone already posted that already and sure enough....definitely hear the Willie Nelson voice waver and kinda the same timbre.
