Neither one of these are really my kind of thing. Too repetitive in both cases, I think. It's basically a toss-up but I'll pick Ben Howard.

Out of ten

Promise 8

Fur Lined 6


I like the concept of the Ben Howard song. Up close, personal, belongs in an art house film.

Other one is not really my thing. Parts of it were good though, nice build at the end.

I really didn't like either of them at all.
I'm going with Ben Howard though.

I agree that both are a bit repetitive. That being said, the Ben Howard one is kind of nice in it's simplicity. The How to Destroy Angels one had a cool beat at times. Overall, I liked the Ben Howard track more. So I am going with that one.

These songs remind me of the pleasing simplicity of some of Tim Bowness songs (but they are not as good).
Agreed on the Ben Howard arthouse tune.
It got the pie.

Wow, a 6-1 blowout early on? Polar opposite of the first match.

The Ben Howard song is an uninspiring affair.

The unrelenting beat and the production and layering of melodies (esp at the end) in the HTDA song is awesome.

My pick is Fur Lined. :)

I have to go with Ben Howard "Promise", as How To Destroy Angels "Fur Lined" sounds like a cheap rip off of Radiohead.

not hearing the Radiohead ^^ but anyway i voted for How To Destroy Angels. i liked the beat. it wasn't bad. the other one was nice too, but was nappy time music. Fur Lined kept my interest more.

haha, there is not a truer statement than that.
Are we going to call this round?
I don't think How to Destroy Angels is going to catch up and I think Ben Howard has this one.

You can't hear the Radiohead Esque sound on that track! It sounds just like a was stolen from a CD of Kid A Demos!
