introducing: the laughing



The Laughing comes to us highly recommended by many of our favorite esteemed Austin hipsters. Car Stereo (Wars) calls them their "favorite new band in Austin", and our boys over at Party Ends say they're like the Unicorns (but more talented) or Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (if CYHSY were any good). Allegedly, these guys just started playing only 4 months ago, and just got done recording their debut EP, Tiger Cry, with Eric Wafford (who recorded all three Voxtrot EPs). It has also been alleged that these dudes rock a glockenspiel, but that hasn't been confirmed as of press time:

mp3:
The Laughing Wearing the Colors
(via Party Ends)

Derivative and possibly entirely too self-aware, sure, but they appear to be lacking any of the pretense that might make their somewhat schtick-y presentation (check the outfits) annoying. But then again, I've only heard a couple songs, and they're both kinda awesome. Check out another track from The Laughing at the band's myspace page.

Hey Pistons fans, how in the hell are we supposed to feel about this?

what's laughable is how bad this is...amazingly, the one on the myspace is even worse. it's time for everyone to get up off their knees and take austin out of their mouths.

sounds like canned indie-rock to me. It's like a smorgasborg of a bunch of contemporary stuff, but it's really transparent and I personally find it kinda boring as a result.

That's Erik Wofford, btw. (;

Don't forget, he also worked on the latest albums from Snowden and The Black Angels. Guy's on a roll.

I'm bummed that I didn't have a chance to see The Laughing before I left Austin...

Chris.. dude.. I have really enjoyed your blog over the past year or so, but this is the low point. Have you ever seen "the laughing" probably not.. had you seen them, you would know they are a killers cover band with costumes. It's a joke. the joke is on you, dude. This is making a depressing day even worse.

i saw them at in austin, i really thought it was horrible and actually walked outside during their set.

dress up black tie dynasty in aqua and white and thats them. i suggest actually seeing shows before you review the band man. seriously. it seems like anyone can suggest a band to you and you will talk about them. maybe a little discretion could help you.

calm down you whiny bitches, chris calls it "derivative" and "schtick"...

hardly a glowing recommendation.

12:03 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

If it's "derivative" and "schtik" then why even talk about it? And Chris hasn't seen them?? Isn't that, like.. kind of important when talking about a band? you know.. whether or not they can actually play and perform live? Are we at a point where none of that matters anymore? I alos saw these guys in Austin.. it wasn't terrible - but it was kind of silly. I guess I had higher expectations for this blog

i sorta hope chris webber will hep replace the defencive void left by the overpaid under performing ben wallace.

i still don't understand the compulse need to slag-off CYHSY, who are a good band. Perhaps not the saviors of rock and roll or anything, but still a good band.

the onslaught of hate continues...the reason blogging exists is to expose bands out there you may or may haven't listened to....are any of them going to change your life, probably not, the point is that if you don't like it, who cares, move on...and for the record, chris webber going to the pistons is a positive move....look at what they were able to do w/rasheed wallace and antonio mcdyess, pistons fans should rejoice!

i hope you're right about c-webb, Julio. i'm sort of divided right now.

i saw this band in austin as well, and to be honest they were pretty fun to see live. i think its funny that some of you are actually upset by this band, marty12
i liked your quote about a 'depressing day even worse'. I can tell, you must be a "really cool guy" in person.

When I first heard they were signing Webber I couldn't figure out why given that we have two of the best forwards in the league with Sheed and Tayshaun, and McDyess (even though he's like a hundred and sixty) is a solid backup for either of them. But I guess Webber will be playing center, which is fine since I guess Nazr is injured or something and Dale Davis is useless. I hope he works out for us. We couldn't do any worse than what we've been doing lately

2:17 PM  
Blogger mike said...

I have to disagree with Barry from Michigan. First, Dale Davis has proven that he is most certainly NOT useless. In fact, he's been more productive than softy-soft Mohammed and slumping McDyess. That said, I do agree that landing Webber was another shrewd move by Joe D.
Now only two questions remain. 1) Which Webber did we acquire? The washed-up 76er or the versitile Sacto King? 2) Which big man will we unload to make room for Webber?
Davis and McDyess have been the front-runners, though Mohammed has recently added his own name to the list. He's pissed that his starting minutes have been revoked, and he wants out. I say good riddance. I just hope we can find a team that actually wants him. Hopefully we can hang on to Davis who is playing like a man half his age. And if we lose 'Dyess, I will be heartbroken. He's one of the last guys on our team who truly puts being a Detroit Piston ahead of minutes, or FG attempts, or dollar bills. So let's hope we dump Nazr. And let's celebrate CWebb's homecoming.

Are you serious with the "not judging music till you see it live"? Did you go to one of the handful of Eliot Smith shows? Have you payed the $400 to see Tom Waits? Are they any good? Hmmm, I guess I can't tell. - Ya'll genuinely can't 'get' this brand of good music, can you? Maybe, if you keep listening to more music thats not on the radio, and try real hard, you'll figure it out. Don't give up though, little troopers.

jesus, fellas, if you don't like the bands chris is posting on or feel that the blog is no longer relevant, all you have to do is discontinue your subscription fees.

I thought this song was pretty good. I guess I should go kill myself then.

unicorns are better than everyone. you should kill yourselves for mussing up their cosmos.

Blogger 20th Street said...

I'm not upset. But the assertion that they are a "more talented" than the unicorns seems a little mean-spirited and not even remotely supported by the facts at hand.

(I still like them better than TV on the Radio though)

"mean spirited" HA! Have you read THIS thread?? I think the Unicorns did just fine for themselves and have moved on quite nicely(ie. islands). These guys here have only been around "allegedly 4 months" and they are already getting torn apart by a bunch of pathetic wannabee music critics that comment anonymously on someone else's blog. I'd say this band is a pretty damn good pick from what i have heard. Take it or leave it though, seriously.

I love C-Webb.
I was at the game tonight.
Nothing was sweeter than watching NO NAZR!
He dished like a champ, he rebounded and he ran the plays pretty smoothly in only 17 minutes of play.

He's going to surprise a lot of people I think.

Deeeee-Troit Basket-baaaaalll!

feel amazed by C-Webb. he is a guy who wants to play and can put in a quality 28 or so minutes. the GM in philly is an idiot.

4:27 AM  
Blogger Nathan said...

Chris--I'm sorry to hear about the signing of CWebb. Unfortunately, it looks like no one else wanted him so Detroit took him. The guy CANNOT play defense, and you already have a lot of scorers with Chauncey coming back into the line-up. At least he got the league minimum, so you didn't spend money on him.
