"I wanted to write about parenthood, but I didn’t want to write about it from a sentimental angle,“ he explains. "I didn’t want it to be this, ‘Oh look at me going to the zoo with my son’ kind of thing. It would be forced for me to ignore the huge changes that have happened in my life in the last three years. It would be ridiculous. To ignore that would be crazy of me. I wanted to sort of do it in a Suede way, and Suede don’t do happy-clappy or jolly very well. We sometimes do, but we get it wrong. I wanted to do it in a thoughtful, slightly neurotic way.
They don’t tell you about the terror before you become a parent. It’s explained to you that it will be challenging and life-changing and wonderful, all of these things, but they never say the fucking terror of being responsible for this vulnerable person. None of it is thoughts like that, and that is what the Night Thoughts are. Lots of the album is about mortality and that fear of death. Because I don’t give a shit about my death for my own sake. I give a shit about it for the people I’m not going to be there for. If I was a single person, I kind of wouldn’t give a shit about it. But now I have to look after myself. I’ve got other people that depend on me."
Who's ready for the grand return of goth-rock? To my ears this sounds genuinely as good as the debut and Coming Up, possibly even on a par with Dog Man Star. Only a shame they don't appear to be releasing b-sides this time round.

/IDM/ is not for:
>Pointless arguments about the meaning of IDM
If you are confused about IDM, want to get into the genre, or don't know who the "big 4" are please see these artists:

It's the 22nd of October
The point of these threads, is to encourage people to look for new and interesting music. We do this by listening to, and ideally discussing albums we've never heard before. Many of us already listen to new music daily, these people are in it to venture "out of their comfort zone" by listening to albums they otherwise wouldn't have, or just to have a good time.
We track our progress using calendars, which we fill with the albums we listen to on each day and a rating of some sort for all of them. There are templates in the following posts. We encourage you to write the albums' titles and the artists' names somewhere on your calendar. We don't have any tools for creating these calendars, we use simple image editing softwares. You can predetermine a schedule for a month or you can report back on whatever album you randomly picked every day. Many of us make our schedules interesting in various way, popular ones being genre restrictions, new releases, and recs from the /daily/ community.
We had a plug.dj room, which we used to shitpost for a little while. It's now forever empty, so if you want to spend a little time there, it is too late. You can find the temporary substitute here though:
no one should really be able to start the threads, but usually one of /daily/'s dedicated trips starts them anyways.
We encourage you to start it, just be sure to use the standard OP.

Most importantly, get taste
