You'll be able to watch it here:

They go on around 10pm New York time, which I'm told is 3am here? It should be available to rewatch afterwards for a bit anyway though.

I'm on about listen no. 20 now and I have to disagree. I think the albums strongest songs are in the middle.

If anyone's interested, there's a complete guitar tab of the whole album (that was quick!) available here-

There can't be more than six chords right the way through the album, very straightforward to play everything.

I've decided I'm going to stay up for the stream.

Might regret it around four A.M., but I really want to hear Sprawl II performed as live as I can get right now

the album is brilliant.
something thats annoying me though that someone might be able to tell me the answer. i got a "leak" last week and the leak was obviously terrible as it had the zane lowe preview of we used to wait on it and the first two tracks from funeral on it. there is a few other songs on it though that are actually not bad but ive no idea what they are. here is one of them in lyrics

Meet me down by the river
Meet me down by the river
Meet me down there
Don’t matter which river
Don’t matter which river
They’re all going somewhere
They’re all going somewhere
Just as long as you’re looking for me
I can be a good friend
And I can be a good lover
I can be a good lover
But I can’t do both of them
No I can’t do both
Just as long as you’re looking for me
Come stand in the water
Come stand in the water
Tell me that you don’t care
Shaking and shivering
Time is making jokes at my expense
Dancing in the river bend
Just as long as you’re looking for me
They’re all going somewhere

downloaded off itunes today and im loving it. just another reason why piracy wrecks my head is these songs appearing on this leak and ive no idea what they are haha!

One of the fake leaks circulating was by a band called Wildlife, maybe give them a bash?

I love this album, not too fond of City With No Children or Half Light II but otherwise I think it's great! Sprawl II is particularly amazing - they've achieved a great mix of their usual style and a more electronic, rhythmic, synth-infused sound, just as successfully as the way they mixed rich, orchestral parts with distorted, overdriven guitars on Funeral.

Month of May is brilliant, too. Love these lyrics;

"So young, so young
So much pain for someone so young, well
I know it's heavy, I know it ain't light
But how you gonna lift it with your arms folded tight?"

Stream crappy for anyone else, sound keeps going loud then quiet again.
Setlist so far:
Spoiler:
1-Ready to start
2-Laika

Yeah it's fluxing a bit - not a lot, but the occasional loud to quiet jump.

Spoiler: Owen Pallett = win.

Holy random volume changes Batman. The bitrate is switching at will.
