damn I can't believe y'all are still goin. good to be back on coma, and I think TMV could be great live nowadays. ATDI sounded great when I saw them this year, Omar and Cedric both still killing it. Would love to see Volta do their thing again.
also Noctourniquet is top 3

Nocty is brilliant. It hit me right away whereas Octahedron let me down for a few weeks until I soaked it all in.

noctourniquet was good
The 2011 ORLG shows were yonks better than Noctourniquet. Good songs, but it's a pretty half assed LP.
one has jacob iii and one doesn't, hard to go up against
I'm convinced that the 2011 band would have recorded Jacob III, or at least tried to. Lyrically it seems (even though it mutated night after night) to chime with Noctourniquet and reveal much around the album's themes in the same way that the decoder single worked with FtM.

I hadn't thought of it that way but that's a great point. That 2011 tour was so good
