That's because they are targeting middle aged people for their bigger sales. As you well know...about the marketing.

the broken west pretty much sounds like any other solid power-pop record, but it's probably my favorite album of the year so far ... it's a lot like how i felt about brendan benson's last disc

I'm listening to the Tom Waits collection as well.  It's awesome so far.  
 
 Also listening to the new CYHSY, Lily Allen, and Islands (finally).  Enjoying all of them.
Title: Re: What Are You Listening To?
Post by: HoyaSaxa03 on February 12, 2007, 04:14:00 pm
you like the CYHSY disc?
 
 i was really disappointed ... seems like a few good songs ("underwater" is the big standout for me) around a whole lot of filler ... and what kind of message were they trying to send with the horribly compressed and distorted opening track?  as close to unlistenable as anything i've heard lately

Yesssssssss to whoever mentioned "Blondie" by Ada.  There were 10, maybe 12 people here at Nation when she came through with the Areal vs. DJ tour. That album is just SOOOOOOO good, and the B-Sides are even better.
 
 Have you heard the B-Side stuff (Lovelace, Call That Tune, etc.)? It's TOO good!
 
 --
 
 Meanwhile, I've been listening to Lucinda Williams' new one, the Siouxsie and the Banshees "Downside Up" collection, and literally everything from Escort.

I was listening to this in the car on the way home from work tonight. It's odd how I always seem to think it's good but only so-so until I put the thing on. Then I'm always taken with how much I like it. It holds up well all the way through and contains a lot of fairly decent song writing. Each of the songs are consistant yet versatile as you go through the disc. Everything is performed rather well too. It won't be my album of the year but it will be one that will always be a nice treat to return to. I kind of think you will like them.

Post by: K8teebug on February 13, 2007, 09:01:00 am
I think the new CYHSY is alright.  I kinda like the first distorted track.  I mainly bought it to hear what they did with "Satan Said Dance".  Saw them perform it live at the 8x10 and thought it was their best song.
 
 I figure either the album will grow on me, or I will start to hate it.

I'm listening to the new shins record. It's ok.
 For whatever reason, I feel like it should be Winter semester my freshman year of college (1992) when I'm listening to it.
 (also the time matthew sweet's girlfriend and teenage fanclub's bandwagonesque came out. And i was dating a guy who was really into the housemartins so maybe that's it.)

the ponys are the best. i still like "celebration castle" better than the new one, but the new one's pretty awesome. remember when they opened for bloc party and were about 483x better than them? i mean, not that that's any real achievement, but still. they were even better on the backstage a few summers ago.

The CD is great, though their live show is a little weak. If you like Malajube, I strongly recommend Les Breastfeeders. A little punkier than Malajube, and more energetic. Another great product from Montreal.

 Wow does the remaster of this sound STUNNING!!!!! Everything sounds a bit warmer, you can hear the multi-tracking on the vocals clearer, the different layers are discernible all very tasty indeed.  Based on the way the sound swirls and bounces between the left and right speakers on the stereo CD version, I can' wait to hear the DVD audio mixes pumping through a proper 5.1 system.
 
 It also makes want to run out and get the Heaven 17 remasters that group recently released as well.

It's good, but on the first listen (in the less than optimal environment of my office), I'm not blown away.  The solo gig is a nice counterpoint to the rockingness of the Fillmore CD.
 
 That Man Needs A Maid / Heart of Gold Suite doesn't work so well.  I like both songs in their traditional arrangement.

Stax 50th Anniversary Celebration Collection complete with nifty hologram on the cover.  The way music should be done, no samplers, pro-tools, etc, just a bunch of musicians laying down the grooves with the singers coming doing several takes to capture the best performance.
 
 Now wasn't there something else I needed to get yesterday Lily Winehouse or was it Amy Allen, it's so confusing these days.

Nope got it in the store along with a cool t-shirt... Although I own the first stax singles box set, I haven't had the time to edit it down to essential tracks which is why I jumped on this.
 
 According to the liner notes lots of re-issues, etc are on the way for the label this year..

Dolorean, You Can't Win
 
 One of my favorites of the year. I hear traces of Wilco, My Morning Jacket, the Red House Painters, the mellower Neil Young stuff, and maybe a little Pink Floyd.
 
 I think they are opening for Kristin Hersh (who is playign with a full band with strings) at Iota, though they're sort of boring live.

Tell me about this, Grotty. How is it? [/b]
After spending a night listening - I'm thinking it is excellent. Didn't know much about Jeff Lang prior but he's a good complement to Chris. There are stunning songs on here - things that rank with CW's best. It sounds most like his more recent: Hotel Lost Horizon/Soft Dangerous Shores/War Crime Blues.
 
 Here's some more detail & reviews I could find:
 
 Sydney Morning Herald
 
 Over the years I have probably heard 40 or 50 versions of Stagger Lee, but I have never heard it sung with such a depth and intensity as the blistering version on this remarkable record. If you buy only one blues-roots album this year, this is the one.
 
 The gigantic, emotion-drenched talent of the late Chris Whitley mixed with some exceptional playing from Jeff Lang, our finest blues guitarist, and stripped-to-the-bone accompaniment from drummer Ashley Davies and upright bass player Grant Cummerford, make this a roots masterpiece.
 
 It's not the way these musicians take Stagger Lee and find new depths of meaning in it. It is the rawness and savagely beautiful guitar attack of Twelve Thousand Miles, and their loping and seductive version of Dylan's When I Paint My Masterpiece.
 
 There is not a bad track on this album, which sounds as though it will jump out of the speakers and grab you by the throat.
 
 Amazon.com
 
 The late Chris Whitley plainly found a kindred spirit in Australia's Jeff Lang, with whom he collaborated on his last recording before his 2005 death. Both are breathy vocalists and bluesy adventurers who favor a buzzsaw immediacy to more layered, polished recordings. With Whitley playing mainly National steel guitar and Lang alternating among lap steel and other guitars, backed by a crack rhythm section, the music has a haunted, sin-drenched quality that ranks with Whitley's most intense. Highlights range from the tribal-throb rendition of Prince's "Forever in My Life" and the Asian delicacy of Lang's acoustic "Ravenswood" to the Dylanesque phrasing of Whitley's "Velocity Girl" and a pair of Dylan covers ("When I Paint My Masterpiece" and "Changing of the Guard"). The opening "Stagger Lee" and the closing "Hellhound on My Trail" (an unlisted bonus cut) show where this music is rooted, while Whitley's "Rocket House" and the supercharged "Underground" show where it can soar.

So kosmo whats up with the CD with the minimal artwork that looks like some secret code to confuse even hipsters?  And is there an interesting back story to it?
Title: Re: What Are You Listening To?
Post by: kosmo vinyl on April 06, 2007, 01:24:00 pm
I'm glad you asked kosmo, it's the cover art for Concept 1 96:VR: Variations  by Thomas Brinkman and there is an interesting back story to it...
 
 Richie Hawtin aka Plastikman put out a series of 12 12"records that would best described as experimental minimal yet still trippy techno.
 
 Anyways Thomas Brinkman from Germany heard these records and thought to himself what would they sound like if I built a special turntable with two cartridges spaced evenly apart.  Then send the sound from one cartidge to the left channel and the other to the right channel.  Which produced the interesting effect of hearing the original track doubled.  The sound literally bounces from one side to the other as the pattern repeats.  It's an amazing collection of tracks and presents a unique way of listening to the artists initial vision.

 And Travis Barker plays some drums on the album too.

 Simply gorgeous!
 
 In the vein of The Daysleepers. In fact, same producer and good friends who sometimes work together. (Actually, this is the producer's band.)
 ____________
 
 Next up...
 
 God Is An Astronaut - "Far From Refuge"
 
 New release, out April 20th. Very good and a natural progression from their earlier works. The opener, "Radau" is by far my favorite and quite powerful.
 
 For fans of Explosions In The Sky, Mogwai, MONO and the like.

23 is the stand-out track for me at this point. I haven't formed much of an opinion as to the rest of it. I think I may stream it from their myspace page for awhile. In the meantime I can't stop listening to Pier Paolo from Fake Can Be Just as Good.

It's a good album but based on one listen it's sounds very disjointed... first impression is it's like it could be a collection of tracks left off previous albums.  I generally like albums where tracks vary, but this ones all over the map and not sequenced very well...

The Mice Parade is a promo copy. The Pela may be as well, not sure. It's missing the front cover artwork and pullout whatever you call it.

The guy sings a little too much like the Arcade Fire singer or Black Francis at times, but when he tones down the voice, it sounds good.

This song - Be Good To Me - from Moon Maan (Rick McCollum's band: ex-Afghan Whigs) is very good & very Whigish. Better than the 2 new songs on the Whigs comp:

 I bought this for the Willie Bobo track "Fried Neck Bones & Some Homefries" which was featured in the film VERY BAD THINGS.  It also has Lowrider by WAR, an essential tune.  6 bucks for these two and more.  I'd call that a bargain.

So far, the appeal of this record totally eludes me. Every song sounds like a 30-second loop of a Beach Boys outtake, repeated over and over.

It is most definitely the Son of Pet Sounds, which originally put me off. But as I continued to listen to it I quickly got sucked in and became somewhat addicted. Perhaps there's some aurally hypnotic bit of technology included on the disc. Yes, that must be it.

One of the problems I have with Elvis is how he treats those first albums as his essential canon and feels compelled to do five-six songs from them every show.  I guess he feels that's what the casual (and longtime hardcore) fan wants to hear.
 
 I guess.  I never liked "Alison" much anyway.  Songs like "Worthless Thing," "King of Thieves," "Town Cryer," "Next Time Round," and "Suit of Lights" (amongst dozens of others) are just as good as songs from those three.  And if he wants to mine those three, why doesn't he ever do "Night Rally" or "Good Squad?"
 
 He's almost like Oasis.  But there's a reason that Oasis mainly do songs from their first two albums...

I'm going to wait a bit before deciding how it stacks up in comparison. It tooks months before I loved Alligator & my favorite song on there - Geese of Beverly Road - I did not initially like.
 
 Boxer is a beautiful & haunting record tho. Obviously influenced by their side project - the Clogs. The one immediate observation is the restraint. No explosions of emotion that have been the highlight of previous records.

 For whatever it's worth - Boxer now has an 89 on Meta:

 Free Show Wed 7/13 @ Pt State Park
 in the Nation's #1 Most Livable City
 
 ****************
 
 Review by Jo-Ann Greene (AMG)
 Americana with attitude is the best way to describe the Avett Brothers' music, a sublime blend of folk, country, hillbilly, and blues, swirled through with pop, rock, and a touch of wry punk. The Avett Brothers pick their way through America's folk styles, and deliver them in ways you'd never expect, all wrapped around lyrics, sometimes wry, sometimes dead-serious, but all delivered with the band's signature intensity. A fabulous album from a band that just keeps getting better.

I can't get enough of either Two Lone Swordsmen's  Wrong Meeting or Wrong Meeting II. For you trainspotters out there it's a project from Andrew Weatherall the producer behind Primal Scream's dead brilliant "Screamadelica" record along with several dance tracks and remixes over the years.
 
 It's scuzzy blues with dashes of keyboards. It harkens back to early New Order with a more of a swagger to it. Both available on eMusic.

Though some of the tracks might change day to day, if I had to make a list of the top 10 songs ever written, "Sugar Cube" would easily be on that list every single time.  It's just perfect.

I always try to turn up Sugar Cube, Damage and Deeper Into Movies louder but it never goes as loud as I need it to.  Their cover of Little Honda is so restrained but driven.  You can see the guitarist just standing there rocking the hell out of that song.  This album is so damn good that I have a hard time listening to other YLT albums.

 MY, HOW THEY"VE GROWN If you only know them as the grunge-era band of 15-year-olds, Silverchair will surprise you with their maturation on Young Modern.
 
 Even during their days as teenagers in a second-string '90s grunge act, the Aussies of Silverchair had a knack for turning out memorable hooks. Still, the transformation they've pulled off for their first LP since '02 is fairly astonishing. Young Modern is a polished glam-rock suite, boasting more ecstatic melodies and colorful riffs than their four previous efforts combined. Frontman Daniel Johns' voice, once unremarkable, now soars from campy snarl to sensitive falsetto in mere moments. Here's hoping Silverchair's second act is just getting started. A-

 [panda bear - "person pitch"]
 
 holy shit is this great ... i have all the animal collective albums and "young prayer", and i like a lot of the stuff, but i feel like they've never really hit anything out of the park ("who could win a rabbit" was a glimpse of it) ... this album is pretty much a perfect distillation of everything animal collective and him have been trying to do the last few years ... most tracks hit the pop sweet spot on so many levels, but "bros" is the standout ... the first part of "good girl / carrots" reminded me a little of the brian eno's / david byrne's "my life in the bush of ghosts" with the polyrhythmic beats and tape splicing
   <img src="http://g-ec2.images-amazon.com/images/I/61IPAfsjlIL._SS500_.jpg" alt=" - " />

   <img src="http://g-ec2.images-amazon.com/images/I/41wqx1%2BMxQL._SS500_.jpg" alt=" - " />
 
 talk about hitting it out of the park ... wow ... i'm completely biased on this one, but i think butch vig's production really works on this and that they managed to keep a lot of what made them special early on ... and it's always great to see a kid you grew up with doing this well
   <img src="http://ec1.images-amazon.com/images/I/612x%2BUIlKLL._SS500_.jpg" alt=" - " />

Two excellent choices Mr. Nakatestes. I prefer Gone to Guitars.  I listened to Willie Nelson's Spirit a few weeks ago. If you haven't heard it I would recommend checking it out.

Folkmote, the new Donny Hue and the Colors album.

this album is poop.
 
 not so much because the songs suck really bad, because they are all decent, though, they all sound the fucking same.
 
 but this band made some of the best sounds of the 90s and this album has about as much creativity as a Bush album.

 ... Listening to?
 
 I am rarely without [my iPod]. When I traveled to and from Greece and India recently, I was looking for a way to recharge it ?? it's such a long way there and back. I have on my iPod a collection of music which is heavily what most people call country and western music. It's heavy on Willie Nelson and Johnny Cash. But I also have some [John Philip] Sousa music, which will get a fair number of chuckles, I suppose. Sousa was the master of the march. I particularly like "Semper Fidelis" and the second movement ?? someone who is schooled in music might say, 'It's not quite a movement,' but I call it a movement ?? I have isolated in and of itself ... so I can just go to it for short bursts of inspiration. I also have, on the iPod, Joe Ely and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. Until I was probably 25 years old, if Hank Williams didn't sing it, I didn't know it. Also, The Blind Boys of Alabama. Oh, I love them. I did a story on them on "60 Minutes II" when I was still at CBS and met them. I do have some R.E.M. I've not listened to it lately. Particularly their earlier stuff and "Monster." Isn't it incredible that they're still going strong? They have the added advantage of being very smart. I should have mentioned that one of the early things I put on the iPod was R.E.M.

 I was so excited when I saw this had been released and was getting superlative reviews. It's good, to be sure. Mingus is always interesting, and his records/shows with Eric Dolphy are always of good quality.
 
 But I think that Mingus is one of the only jazz greats whose recorded works I prefer over the live stuff. His records like Ah Um, Tijuana Moods, and Black Saint & Sinner Lady are so lively and rollicking, whereas the live discs I have tend to be more somber and mellow. Nothing wrong with that, but it tends to fade into the background, which never happens when playing Better Git It In Your Soul or Wed Night Prayer Meeting.
 
 This definitely has its rocking points, and Mingus is yakking it up during the songs the whole time, but the 30-minute "Meditations" just drags, in my opinion, along with a few others that just seem... aimless.

I like all four Ritter discs, and think he has improved with each album. I don't know if I can say that about any other artist.

 I think it's amazing, and it's definitely unlike anything she's done before.
 
 "Grow, Grow, Grow" is by far the best song on there...I think it'll be recieved as one of the best albums of the year.

Okay, so i officially LOVE this album.
 
 LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE it.
 
 It's very specific... and I know there are times when I won't want to listen to it... even like on an incredibly sunny summer Saturday... it just won't feel right...but... it's so evocative and invokes such clear strong images and sensations for me.
 
 and it's CREEPY AS FUCK.
 
 'Grow Grow Grow' sounds like it's straight out of the last scene of "Flowers in the Attic" or a movie about this really crazy town in the bible belt and all the kids are inbred and speaking in tongues and end up going on a killing spree using pitch forks and nooses made from horse hair all in the name of the holy spirit.
 
 What else?
 
 I think that 'The Devil', 'Grow Grow Grow', 'Before Departure' and 'The Mountain' are my favorites right now...
 
 ...and I'd love to hear her play this album straight through at the show.

I really liked Howl Howl, which is why I didnt like this one.  I didnt find it like the cure at all, and not poppy at all, which was the reason the first one was good.  But to be honest I started skipping through songs because I became very bored with it, I will give it a full listen today.

love this album. reminded me of the cure on first listen. after seeing them live, i love it even more. i think i might like it better than the HHGG, but then i hear HHGG and love it all over again.
 
 i really wish i could see them more than once on their 2nd time around, but morrissey got in the way of that.

 Odd, but strangely compelling. Its a song-by-song "cover" of Black Flag's Damaged, though you'd never know it unless you listened very closely to the lyrics. RIYL Sufjan Stevens, I'd say.

What field are you in that people in your office actually listen to hip music?
 
 My wife is always bitching about the boring-ass people that she works with, and how she has nothing in common with them. When she returns to work, she'd like to work in a younger, hipper office...does such a thing even exist in the DC area?
 
 VW is all the rage on KEXP. i'll have to listen at some point.

So far, so good.  It's a little hard to give it a full assessment at office-volume levels, but a couple of the songs sound like they should be barn burners in the live setting.

 Great 60s-era-garage power pop record. Singer sounds a bit like a young Mick Jagger, and the guitars, while jangly, rock. Songs are catchy and really upbeat.

 Bought this one based just on the cover. And it sounds just like it looks. Pretty pop, in the vein of Essex Green, Francoise Hardy or somber Cardigans.

I'm listening to this band called the Arcade Fire. I found one of their albums on a sharing site on the web. They sound like a less talented, less interesting version of Devotchka.

Is there a better version than that?  Because I just gave Neon Bible another chance Tuesday and it still isn't doing a thing for me.  Blah.

Could the band itself even have predicted what would transpire of the Arcade Fire??s Win Butler??s suggestion to the band that they take on ??Last Beat of My Heart??? The end result is the center-piece of the EP, a grand and soaring take on the song; a testament to the band??s true unique ability to transform nearly anything via a sound only DeVotchKa can create, and perhaps a look at the epic nature of where the band??s own recordings may move in the future.

sure, i'd be happy to (although it wouldn't be any more legal than what you already have  :) ) - but i doubt it would convert you over to AF.  a high-res version of the recording probably won't change your opinion of their talent, or  ability to generate interest.
 
 also, if you really want to give this band a chance, check out their first album ("funeral").   a vast majority of people feel that it is better than "neon bibble".

Funeral is great.  Neon Bible is pretty blah.

Post by: Charlie Nakatestes, Japanese Golfer on October 04, 2007, 02:21:00 pm
I've heard most of Funeral, and it really doesn't do much for me. Mind you, it's probably better than 80% of the crap out there, but then again probably less than 5% of the music out there really does anything for me.

 Found this great blog today with some high quality vinyl rips of vintage Halloween records.   http://scarstuff.blogspot.com/ (http://scarstuff.blogspot.com/)
 
 Anyways, this record from 1959 on which Rod McKeun is involved with not only has a song, "The Mummy" covered by the Fall, it has "The Beat Generation" which serves as inspiration to "The Blank Generation" one of greatest punk songs ever written.
 
 Here is a video of the actual single playing...

Picked this up on your recommendation and it's great. Damned if I can come up with a description of it or comparisons to other bands. Some of the tracks sound like a mellow Muse, some sound like early Radiohead, there's some shoegaze elements, Kent and Doves came to mind. Anyway, good call.

 Art Blakey "Buhaina's Delight":  Yes!  THIS is how it SHOULD sound!

 The Ghost You Left Behind
 
 Very good from the 1st track to the last!
 "Driverlights" is still my favorite track.
 
Picked this up on your recommendation and it's great. Damned if I can come up with a description of it or comparisons to other bands. Some of the tracks sound like a mellow Muse, some sound like early Radiohead, there's some shoegaze elements, Kent and Doves came to mind. Anyway, good call. [/b]
Cool. Glad you like it. I'm missing the Radiohead and Muse comparisons but not disagreeing either. Definitely hear the Kent and maybe some Doves. A more playful Mew too. One song always makes me think of Ultravox. That's Tomas' influence. Definitely some Shoegaze but only in a light weight manner. Much more melodic and lyrical than most Gaze.  
 
 Btw Relaxer, pull the little booklet out and go to the last page and read the portion in the lower right corner. At least, the top line. Will explain once you read it. There is much more to it than meets the eye.

 Great random album I got turned on to. This is how allmusic puts it:
 
 "If Exene Cervenka hooked up with the Jesus and Mary Chain, they all got wrecked on cheap malt liquor, and they jammed together for a few hours, you might get something that closely resembles Space and Time."
 
 That's a fair description. Super garage-y and scuzzy, with random off-beat horns, loud guitars, pounding piano, 'Waiting for the Man' drums, and a singer that wails kind of like the Detroit Cobras.

Admittedly, I haven't seen them in a few years, and just realized that the one girl left.  But pianos?  And singing??  And song-structure???  This disc is a pretty awesome step-forward.
 
 Still, these gals and guy were brutally entertaining as a trio that seemingly improvised everything.

Even as a duo, all the cdr's they put out prior to Boss and the shows they played were all improvised. I'm very curious as to what to their shows consist of now.

Wolf Eyes - Black Wings Over The Sand. Nowhere near as abbrasive as and much more restrained than their other stuff but still as deliciously fucked up. This has to be as evil as ambient music gets.

 Notable for me because,

 *The Remastering!
 
 The mix has always been super bad on the cds. This is better. Much better.
 
 I'd still like to hear Bonham a little higher & heavier (Levee Breaks should thump) but it's a HUGE improvement

 I really like this. Seen these guys a couple times over the past couple years and was always a little put off by the fact that it's just two dudes playing to tapes and a drum machine, but... I'd usually get over it because they bring the J&MC/BRMC sound and that's always cool. Big waves of feedback, monotone vocals, more waves of feedback. These guys and some of the guys from Place to Bury Strangers used to be in Skywave.

 a while ago we were griping that daft punk had no plans to release a DVD of the tour.  i've now come around to the opinion that this was a wise decision - the audio reminded me of how great those shows were, and how impossible it would be to bottle up into a video recording.  the two-disk deluxe edition contains a video of "better faster harder stronger", will need to see what that looks like when the disks arrive.

I love that album too. There are a couple others that I sort of associate with the Alcest vibe, though the sound isn't really the same.
 
 Wolves in the Throne Room and Jesu are a little more on the metal side, but have the big guitar wave sound. Place to Bury Strangers is heavy on the Jesus & Mary Chain vibe, lots of feedback. Ceremony is the same, a little more poppy.
 
 Others that don't really sound like Alcest, but seem come from similar places are Om, Working for a Nuclear Free City, Panda Bear, and Six Organs of Admittance.

I was thinking "this reminds me of Jesu but with way less synth or low end and way more beautiful melodies" while listening to it. Any idea about other Alcest releases?

I think that's the only Alcest album proper, though who knows what they've got hidden in Franceland.
 
 Another groovy band that has the whole ethereal-female-voices and walls of sound (though less dense than Alcest) is:

You're welcome.
 
 As usual, I prefer the Cooley songs. Two of Shonna's songs are decent, in a less talented aping Neko light. Patterson's songs really aren't doing it so much for me on first listen, but I'm sure some of them will be growers.
 
 Cooley just had his third kid, and Patterson has one or two (his daughter shares the same name as my grandmother and daughter), so family oriented could be expected...

well, the eek was a touch of sarcasm, but i think "let it be" and "tim" are considered by the cognoscenti to be the superior albums ... damn the man, i'll take "pleased to meet me" over both

I've always put all three on equal footing.  Tim may be a better whole, but between the Ledge and Alex Chilton, I think Pleased hits the higher highs.

hmm, i'm kind of the opposite ... i think each album has two or three songs that are equally all-time-great fantastic ("let it be": unsatisfied, i will dare; "tim": left of the dial, little mascara, bastards of young; "pleased to meet me": alex chilton, can't hardly wait, never mind)
 
 but i never really cared for songs like "lay it down clown", "gary's got a boner", "tommy gets his tonsils out", etc ... "pleased to meet me" is just more consistent all the way through ... it's obvious they're reaching for mainstream success, and it sounds amazing

 Btw, Spc-Eco is finally putting out something in January but, sadly for me, it's only on (white)  vinyl and on iTunes. My turntable isn't usuable and can't use iTunes. It's going to be put out on my friend's label so I'll have to go push him to eventually release it all on CD. I'm one of those who insist on a tangible product with art work  but I'd like to also be able to hear it at will.

There is one early demo called "Tristesse Hivernale" and some mini-CD called "Le Secret" but have never seen or heard either. As far as I'm aware, there aren't any obtainable releases but I suspect that "Souvenirs d'un Autre Monde" is a rerelease since there are two different covers going around and each look very similiar. Don't know if it was ever remixed or anything.
 
 Alcest morphed out of another band which was supposedly darker Metal but I've yet to hear any of it. I first heard him (it's one guy called Neige who added on a few others) about a year and a half to two years ago (actually, he found me) but it took me awhile to finally track down and buy the CD. He is rather quiet but I suspect it may have something to do with language differences. Or maybe he's just that kind of guy.

 im in love with the setting suns. saw them last night and they just blew my mind away. which makes me wish i had seen swervedriver.
 
 The Setting Suns is a collaboration between Sam Fogarino, drummer from Interpol and Adam Franklin, guitarist and singer from Swervedriver and Toshack Highway. The duo met over dinner in NYC last winter, while being introduced by long time, mutual friend, Jack Rabid (The Big Takeover). The Setting Suns have completed recording their debut five song EP at Electric Lady in NYC and it sounds rather wonderful! Release is scheduled for the fall. Further details will be posted as they develop...

 "Limited Edition Signed CDR. 52 minutes. A collection of musical pieces designed to be used on certain SRB film projects, most of which have not yet seen
 the light of day, though a few have. There is just a sprinkling of guitar on these pieces. Other instrumentation includes piano, keyboards, strings, electronics,
 percussion, shortwave broadcasts, samples, and other ingredients of SRB's approach to "whorecestration"."

Statements like that are why I like you so much.  I'm planning on getting an album or two on emusic, but it doesn't look like the one you're listening too is on there.  Any suggestions?

This is more of a what I will be listening to as soon as I get home... Didn't know this had come out..  The CD was mastered with actually records from Norm's Collection ala a mixtape.  Closes with Bootsy Collins reading a poem written by Paul Heaton.

Found a nice little surpise in my mailbox this evening. A friend mailed me a promotional copy of the new Bauhaus release called "Go Away White".
 
 Giving it it's 1st trial run now. (Only on the 3rd song called "Undone".) That and the 1st aren't bad but don't knock me out yet. Need a few more listens though to be fair. The 2nd song, "Adrenaline", though had me rocking in a the good early Bauhaus kind of way.      :D    
 
 My copy has the old traditional art school Bauhaus logo on the front and looks very similiar to this release but obviously different music altogether. At this point, have no clue what the actual release will look like.
 
     <img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/3165FXN3KYL._AA240_.jpg" alt=" - " />
 
 The 4th song, "International Bulletproof Talent" is starting out quite nice and full of the old rocking dark Goth that Bauhaus is responsible for, except the '70s style chorus has to go.
 
 -Edit-
 Nope, the 4th song, (IBT), turned out to be a stinker. Hoping the other songs come up to "Adrenalin".

 German Oak - German Oak
 
 During the summer of 1972, best remembered for the bloodshed of the Munich Olympics, the 5-man Düsseldorf instrumental group German Oak entered the Luftschutzbunker (Air Raid Shelter) studio to record their first, eponymous album. The purpose of recording in a bunker was to recreate the feelings experienced by German soldiers during the Allied invasion of 1944. The strange acoustic conditions in the bunker made the music, which was a series of long, spacious guitar jams, sound distant and filled with echo.

 So this is an awesome wild ride of an album, kinda all over the place on the shoegaze, drone, lo-fi hissy, post-punk/goth sound. Like Working For a Nuclear Free City, it's one of those long double discs that doesn't immediately have a lot of hooks, but I end up playing it a lot anyway.

 On the first couple of listens, I would say this is really good -- much better than the last two.  Of course, as with every Clinic album, it sounds pretty similar to all the others.

All in all I give it a hearty thumbs up.  I like the psychedelic pop and surf tones, but the girl singer's voice doesn't always work for me, especially when she goes into torch singer mode.
 
 I am looking forward to seeing how they do live.  Could be a lot of fun.

have given it a few listens and like it so far - one thing that really striking me this time are the comparisons to nick cave and the bad seeds, obviously different vocal styles but the song structure, call and response remind me a lot of the seeds esp on The Fix and An Audience with the Pope

I attended their two shows in San Francisco last week. I must say that we are luckier than the NYC people because we get to see Daniel Handler (Lemony Snicket) play "Scream and Run Away" (http://youtube.com/watch?v=WgkZXrtBWY8 - from the LA show).
 
 Anyway, great shows if you are a fan of the band (and the 6ths and Gothic Archies)...

agreed, but the trying-to-be-cute-but-clearly-really-angry-about-little-noises thing gets really old REALLY quick ... if you're going to be a crazy anal retentive artist and insist on total silence, just go ahead and scream at the coughing guy in the audience rather than being passive aggressive about it and saying "i have one ricola for the most persistent cough"

 If you like Twilight Sad, you'll probably like this, and not just because of his thick accent. Similar 'big' sounding music. And his thick accent.

Sorry for the delayed response. I love the album. I thought the first album had some standout tracks, but this album is good start to finish. And it's out in the US. Now if only they'd play a show in DC...

 first impression:  holy fuck!  this shit is loud!  made me go running for the remote
 
 the sonics are really the story here -- fucked up and fun, sounds at times like it's been recorded once, played back through blown speakers, and then re-recorded ... fascinating to listen to this immediately after "modern times" (especially considering dylan's rant at the time about modern recording methods)
 
 where CYHSY tried and utterly failed to do something interesting with their sound on their 2nd album, this really really really works
 
 PS:  i LOVE how the inner groove of side A has this absurd squelching sound repeated over and over (instead of the normal "click, click, click") ... i thought it was the last song on the side until i got up and realized what they were doing

 Hey Hoya
 
 While waiting for the next Brendon Benson album, check these guys out.  Heard them first on the recent eMusic SXSW samplers and my first reaction was whoa that singer sounds exactly like Brendon... The record got that great 60s pop vibe turned slightly on it's head. One really great song title as well "I Played Her Pet Sounds / She Showed Me Diff'rent Strokes"
 
 Hard to believe these guys are in high school...

 I'll give this one a solid B, some real killer tracks and a couple just ok ones... Here's hoping that they don't do what the Caesars did with "Jerk It Out"by including slightly different versions of "Be Your Man" on several albums..

i had a friend who was a chillout DJ, and would occasionally drop some MG in order to make the tripping kiddies freak out... t'was a lot of fun   :)  
 
 i was never into him much but have enjoyed "lo-fi india abuse" and "beyond the blue mosque", from what i remember.  i'm definitely not the right person to ask, tho... he has a huge following, i'm sure there are fan-boards that can make better suggestions.

i'm listening to the  new mudcrutch single (http://www.scareeasy.warnerreprise.com/)... the heartbreakers by any other name...
 
   
Quote
Mudcrutch was Tom Petty's original band in Florida before The Heartbreakers. The band broke up after an attempt at stardom in Los Angeles in 1975 and Tom Petty, Mike Campbell, and Benmont Tench went on to form the Heartbreakers while Randall Marsh and Tom Leadon left LA to follow other pursuits. Tom Petty reformed the band in 2007 to record the upcoming album, bringing Campbell, Tench, Leadon, Marsh and Petty back together.
 
 The Mudcrutch album will be available everywhere on April 29

Is it worth the eMusic downloads?
Title: Re: What Are You Listening To?
Post by: kosmo vinyl on April 15, 2008, 11:48:00 am
I've been listening to  Resident Advisor Podcasts (http://www.residentadvisor.net/podcast.aspx) of late, partly to get a feel for what Minimal Techno is.  So far Kevin Saunderson, Stacey Pullen, Underworld and Ron Trent.  Looking forward to Alex Smoke, Joris Vroon and Digitalism.  
 
 Reading people's comments on these are part of the fun, in fact I believe Mr. Wallace is a fan of techno based on this comment posted for Ron Trent's podcast.
 
 "I want my electronic music to be cold, dark, repetitive, hard, souless, funkless, and for most part completely electronic. "
 
 While RA only has the four most recent podcasts on their site, the older ones are still available on the interweb  ;)

its still sinking in - I think its decent - some good songs, other may grow on me - I think pretty much anything is worth an emu download at 25 cents or whatever a song

 New album from Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys and... some other guy (Miles Kane of The Rascals). It's good -- not as viscerally pleasing as the Monkeys but it shows Turner has more tricks in him than straight-forward guitar rock.

 WOW!  This is not at all what I was expecting when I downloaded this from eMusic awhile back.  Always thought Hooverphonic was more of a trippy poppy dance music act, but on this record they have morphed their sound into an updated a 60's psychedelic pop vibe.  One of the best records I've heard so far this year.

 Such a great album. Got a little buzzy last night, put this on the car hi-fi, got on 66 and next thing I knew, I was in Warrenton. A perfect impromptu drive to a damn near perfect record. Stopped for a new can of dip and put on the Muse compilation that Sweetcell left in my car last year (I just threw out your underwear, hope that's cool) and rocked all the way home.

Thanks for that. Probably my favorite Truckers show I've seen. Except when that guy bit my ass up on the balcony.
 
 I love when Cooley forgets the lines and apologizes for being so fucked up.

Don't worry, it healed quickly.
 
 I don't think he was very discriminating as to who he was harassing, as he also pawed several women in the vicinity. Lucky for him he didn't grab my wife, or he would have received more than the slap in the face I gave him.
 
 Kudos to the 9:30 staph, they booted his ass shortly after all this occurred.

The Lucky Soul album Hoya and Brennser have been raving about, very nice it is...
 
 I was thinking their sound was a little more retro, but if you like this be sure to checkout Frankie on eMusic.  It's got that latter day St. Etienne and Hooverphonic vibe...

 Assured-beyond-their-years San Diego quartet the Muslims will definitely get a lot of attention for their name, but we're much more interested in the band's catchy, sorta sloppy and stark post-punk-infused rock 'n' roll. They mix a kind of Strokes-y, and therefore VU, detachment and something that bumps in the night like Hell and his Voidoids (or, better yet, Hell and the Heartbreakers doing "Love Comes In Spurts"). You can also hear a bit of the Stooges -- not just because the band cites 'em, along with the Replacements, as an inspiration -- and early Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers (see "Future Rock," "On My Time," etc). Whatever the mix of forerunners, the Muslims find a way to make it their own -- it's kinda uncanny. We've been listening to their new 7-song 12" (and the 10-song CD) on repeat (thanks Robots for the heads up),

This is nice and haunting so far:
 
 
 Tom Carter & Christian Kiefer - From The Great American Songbook
 
 "This second collaborative work from the pair is an expansive and ambitious recasting of American music now in the public domain. The influence of the songs
 collected here is long and widespread for their style and lyricism, forging a rich tradition and ever evolving history. With their interpretations, Carter
 and Kiefer have taken the songs that have seeped into their souls and extended upon them in such a way that brings something entirely new to their original
 ideas. It??s something that??s entirely theirs in spite of such source material, and with that, From The Great American Songbook brilliantly reveals a true
 hallmark of American music invention.
 
 So, we have the infamous murder ballad Pretty Polly, the comic Camptown Races, the funeral Will The Circle Be Unbroken, the outlaw tale of Jesse James,
 the depression piece Hard Times Killin?? Floor Blues, the ragtime of The Entertainer and the doomed love trysts of Railroad Boy and The Coo Coo Bird. Carter
 and Kiefer have taken the spirit of these as a starting point for their spectral guitar improvisations, then fleshed them out with piano, percussion, bass
 and drums. In this thrillingly vast sonic terrain are moments of foreboding, tenderness, melancholy and gut-wrenching rawness.
 
 Two of Kiefer??s longtime cohorts, Scott Leftridge and Chip Conrad played bass and drums respectively, while Califone??s Ben Massarella handled percussion.
 
 Also contributing to From The Great American Songbook is a host of American musicians ?? including Tony Conrad, James Jackson Toth, Glenn Jones, and Sharron
 Krauss ?? with their reminiscences and insights into these songs with which they also found great personal resonance."

Not me.  I love it.  This was the record that initially turned me on to The Jam.

May have just found a new favorite album of '08.
 
 
 Paavoharju - Laulu Laakson Kukista
 
 
 Pretty dead-on review here:
 
 "It's hard to pin down precisely what it is that's so alluring about
 Finland's hugely acclaimed Paavoharju, but the consensus seems to
 have been that their
 remarkable debut album "Yha Hamaraa" quite simply managed to marry a
 myriad disjointed influences and sound sources without ever sounding
 like it was trying
 too hard. If you've never heard the music of Paavoharju, prepare
 yourself for one of life's more considerable and uncontained
 pleasures. They are a band
 who take in influence from the "Radio India" style shortwave pop
 transmissions of the Sublime Frequencies label, freak folk, Europop,
 modern classical,
 plunderphonics, choral, devotional, experimental and multicoloured
 music of almost every description imaginable - and yet they embody a
 specific sound
 that's unmistakably their own. Their aforementioned debut "Yha
 Hamaraa" made such an impact when it first came out that it seemed
 to unify music critics
 and the buying public from all ends of the musical spectrum,
 worshipped by chin-stroking journalists and passers by alike - one
 of those records that you
 could play almost anywhere and guarantee people would virtually
 queue to ask who it was by and where they could buy it. Their long
 awaited follow-up "Laulu
 Laakson Kukista" does that remarkable thing and doesn't disappoint.
 The scope and energy here is once again impossible to contain -
 opening with drone
 washes, de-tuned music box tones and vocals degraded by worn down
 analogue tape, it sounds like a day in the park, a far away ice
 cream van, an orchestra
 rehearsing and Fennesz doing a soundcheck all at the same time. From
 there we go to "Kevätrumpu" - an absolutely genius generic jamboree
 that sounds like
 Kylie Minogue playing with a backing band that's half Finnish folk
 and half Bolywood session band, recorded to a four-track recorder
 that's been thrown
 into the sea and discovered 20 years later by some fortunate
 anthropologist. Heck, there are even some Autechre-style rhythmic
 distortions towards the
 end of the track - you just couldn't make it up, and it sounds SO
 good. Next - "Tuoksu Tarttuu Meihin" takes in some far away solo
 piano and quietly malfunctioning
 distortion pedals in a Tim Hecker meets Akira Rabelais sort of
 fashion, while "Ursulan Uni" sounds like a cross between Isan and
 Philip Jeck - and is just
 utterly beautiful. It's virtually impossible to sum up the sheer
 brilliance and scope of this schizophrenic yet brilliantly coherent
 album, it shimmers
 with all the excitement and knowledge of a seemingly endless stream
 of influence and once again manages to sound unlike anything you'll
 have ever heard
 before in your life. And believe us when we say that recommendations
 really don't come much higher than that. An utterly Essential
 Purchase."

 I prefer albums over comps, but this one is pretty great. Nice flow, and I've not heard of most of the bands, so it gives me some new stuff to look for. In the vein of Fuck Buttons and Raccoo-oo-oon, who are both on here. I read a comment by someone who said it's like a modern noise-rock version of Nuggets, and that rang true.
 
 LOVE AND CIRCUITS -- a 2 CD, 57 band scene report culling a wide variety of punk, noise, experimental, folk, and electronic music.  For your convenience, the tracks are alphabetized by band name.  77.2% of these songs are exclusive to the comp.  Of special note is the contribution from Trey Told 'Em (Girl Talk and Hearts of Darknesses' new remix project) -- a mashup track of all the other 56 submissions!

awesome, thanks for link.
 
 i'm also looking forward to this show.  i just realized this past weekend that i had tickets to both M83 and The Presets on the same night in Philly (they're both playing in DC the following night, so same show conflict here too).  my Preset tickets are now on CL - would love to catch them, but not at the expense of M83.

Good pick. I've been listening to the new M83 a LOT lately and while I didn't like it at first, I'm really coming around to it hard. Would love to see the BC show, but it won't be happening.

its fairly different from what I usually listen to but I like it - I'm not crazy about MIA but there are only 1 or 2 songs that evoke her (and quite honestly I prefer her MIA-like songs to anything MIA has done)

listening to this one now. obviously very great, but my favorite part of it is that the audience is clearly still viewing him as this pure and noble folk/protest singer and you can tell that bob's like, "suckers, just wait for what i'm gonna spring on you in the next couple years." best moment might be when he introduces "it's alright ma" and the title gets a laugh and he goes, "yes, it's a very funny song."

i love how they presented this both sets of this show, the initial acoustic set and then the big fuck-you balls-out plugged-in set
 
 you have to turn the volume up really loud, but you can definitely hear bob say "PLAY IT FUCKING LOUD!" to the Band after the judas comments and a second before kicking into "like a rolling stone" ... spine-tingling moment ... i also love his sneering "i don't belieeeve you, you're a LIAR" response to the heckler who said he'll never listen to him again
 
 it was great being able to see video footage of this moment in "no direction home"
 
 anyway, just an amazing historical document, and the music is so great

 it was great being able to see video footage of this moment in "no direction home"
 
 anyway, just an amazing historical document, and the music is so great [/b]
wait, now you're confusing me. you posted bootleg 6, which is the all acoustic show on halloween '64 but now you're talking about bootleg 4 which is the famous "royal albert hall" show. both are great, but i was talking about the all acoustic show where he could still play into people's protest singer mindsets and then spring new songs like "gates of eden" and "it's alright ma" on them, knowing it was just the tip of the iceberg.
 
 bootleg 4 is, obviously, one of the greatest musical documents of all-time. and yeah, you can clearly hear both "judas!" and "play fucking loud." but, oddly enough, bootleg 5 (rolling thunder tour) is my favorite to listen to these days.

upon further reflection, i was thinking about the bootleg series vol. 4 (1966 royal albert hall show) ... been listening to way too much dylan lately   ;)  
 
 speaking of which, i've been digging through this "tree with roots" bootleg that compiles all the available and unadulterated basement tapes, it's a good listen:

New eMusic haul last night.  First on the list:
 
   <img src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61amWvtCuOL._AA240_.jpg" alt=" - " />
 
 Pretty good so far.  I still think I prefer Paul being the singer, but the new guy is definitely growing on me.  This might be their strongest since the Street Warz EP.

Next:
 
   <img src="http://www.clickmusic.com/upload/themidnightorganfight300.jpg" alt=" - " />
 
 Not sure why, but I was expecting to hate this album, but figured I'd download it just to hear what all the fuss was about.  So far, I'm really enjoying it.  I doubt it will stand the test of time, but it's pretty good indie pop for a nice pre-summer day.

Another eMusic:
 
   <img src="http://static.boomkat.com/images/126299/333.jpg" alt=" - " />
 
 Not really loving this one.  I got it based on a recommendation from Joe and the fact that they're opening the Times New Viking show.  I could see them maybe pulling this off live, but on record, it's a little too Desaparecidos for my liking.

 I'm not in love with this EP either.  I prefer the album versions of these songs.  Don't get me wrong, the songs are still great.  They just seem a bit  more atmospheric with less punch.  Still, I pretty much love anyone's version of "Some Things Last A Long Time."

Finishing up my eMusic haul:
 
  <img src="http://joanjettbadrep.com/Lyrics/images/jjbr.jpg" alt=" - " />
 
 I forgot how fun this album is.  I had a CD copy years ago that I borrowed from my folks, but it's been missing for years, way before I went digital.  Such fun...although years of watching Freaks & Geeks has forever associated that show with the title track.  Still rocks, though.
 
 Now onto:
 
  <img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/d/db/Santogoldalbum.jpg" alt=" - " />
 
 So far, pretty boring IMO.  It sounds like a not-so-interesting mix of later day No Doubt and MIA.  Not bad...but I probably won't listen to it again.

I just got this as well and I like it. Haven't heard them before but kept seeing their name pop up.
 
 Also downloaded an FM broadcast of the Verve's Glastonbury set and am enjoying that a lot. The focus, unfortunately, is on Urban Hymns songs, but it's still good. I am vigorously hoping for a DC date at the club and not, say, an opening slot for Blow Patrol and Cockerville River at Nissan.

This is really excellent. I DLed it yesterday and it was like the greatest radio channel ever. Didn't love everything, but I got to hear a lot of bands I'd always wanted to. And now I'm pulling down June's playlist, so all is well with the world.

Have you tried 'Pink'? That's a good gateway album into the Boris fold.
 
 For the record, I'm not that much into Smile either, but I do like Pink a lot.

I definitely think that album can work as a code for non-doom fans.  Kinda makes the rest make sense to an outside observer, I think.

Rainbow is a great intro although it's not very representative of their over all sound. Then again, it's hard to say that they do have a distinct sound since they're so all over the place.
 
 Akuma No Uta is quite good, too.
 As is Pink as mentioned above.
 
 
 I doubt their slower, dronier releases like Feedbacker, Flood or Absolutego will do anything for you but I like them a lot.

Post by: nkotb on July 11, 2008, 11:57:00 am
I'd agree.  I probably dont' listen to them very often, but when I need a 64 minute dose of drone, they usually do the trick.

 Per this thread however, I've been listening to both of these all night:

 Cocteau Twins - Blue Bell Knoll
 
 It's not their best, but it's got some of my favorite songs of theirs like "Blue Bell Knoll", "Cico Buff", and "Ella Megalast Burls Forever".
 
 and

 Ellen Allien - Boogybytes, Vol. 4
 
 Again, not the best of the Boogybytes compilations, but its got a really good sound to it, and I generally love Ellen's taste in picking great minimal tracks. Super fun, though!

 new project from zach de la rocha.  RATM fans will probably like it, rage-haters should stay away.  zach on vocals and synths, jon theodore (ex-mars volta) on drums.

Gave the new Conor Oberst a spin a little while ago. Solid straight-forward alt-country; the angsty bitchness has all been stripped away (not that I don't like Lifted and I'm Wide Awake) which makes sense; he is getting older.
 
 
 Then put on another new Carlos Giffoni LP. It had its moments but is no Eternal Noise.
 
 
 Now: Magnetic Fields - The Wayward Bus.

 Nice to hear these guys again, but as their sound has progressed, my liking for them has declined. The 3-album arc of Random Noise-Bursts through Mars Audiac to Emperor Tomato is just superb. But once they started using the vibes, it all kind of went pants up for me. So where there used to be droney noise waves, now it's happy horns, twinkly vibes and bouncy rhythms. Nothing wrong with that, but it's not what I look for with this band.

 Sad, really.
 
 
 He put out some of the best weird folk I've heard in the past.

I wasn't too crazy about them when they opened for Jay Reatard here.
 
 
 Maybe I should give the album a listen.

Post by: Relaxer on August 11, 2008, 04:00:00 pm
It's basic beefed-up Strokes rock, but I have a high tolerance for music like that. A month from now, it will probably be something else.
 
 Have listened to the new Franz Ferdinand song about half a dozen times today. I really like this band; they're predictable and they sound pretty much the same as they did before, but they do their angular party rock as well as anyone.

Good to hear!  I loved Strange Geometry, but I also never got around to their new one.  How do the girl's vocals fit into the sound of the band?

You know, I thought they were really pronounced on only a few tracks. They were a nice touch.
 
 
 Just as good as Strange Geometry on the whole, IMO.

Yes, they are comps of some bands you may or may not have heard of. Any of you that take the time to listen will certainly come away with a few gems they didn't know existed. Hipshit is not widely distributed but well worth the effort if you're looking for something new and maybe hadn't been discussed in Pitchfork etc.

Mogwai - Batcat EP
 
 
 Two great instrumental tracks and a horrendous ballad.
 
 
 Like...laughably horrible.
 
 
 The title track is a rocker; heavier than what I'm used to from Mogwai and well-composed. The next one entitled "Stupid Prick Gets Chased by the Police and Loses his Slut Girlfriend" is a slightly shorter, relaxing, pretty composition. I hope the ballad "Devil Rides" was some sort of sick joke and nothing remotely similar to it ends up on the album.

Religious Knives - The Door
 
 
 It's been great watching this band slowly transform from electronic drone duo to 4-piece psych-rock force to be reckoned with. It sounds like this album is the point they've been working towards for the last four years and so far, it couldn't have come out any better.

49:00 is great. It's such a random assortment of tunes, all kind of thrown together.

Never been a fan of them before, but I'm really digging the new Walkmen album. Right in time to see tham at Bumbershoot next Saturday.
 
 Also like the new Stereolab. A bit warmer and poppier than their older stuff, which to me is a bit tedious after a few songs.

 And the Kohoutek set with one of them was solid, too.

Ponytail - Icecream Spiritual
 
 They've become a tight solid instrumental band. I just wish they'd lose that girl who shrieks like a kitten in pain without saying anything. I mean if she were shrieking lyrics, they'd have an excuse to keep her around. Is she the girlfriend of one of the bandmembers and did she force herself into the band that way?
 She ruins the whole thing and it's too bad because the rest of the band is good.

Russian Circles - Station
 
 
 Post-rock with metal leanings similar to Pelican but not as anthemic or heavy. Very good if you're into that sort of thing.
 
 Edit: second half of the album got a little more anthemic and less metal resulting in a slightly more EITS-ish sound.

Couple things I'm enjoying lately:
 
 Dirty on Purpose "Hallelujah Sirens" - Kind of shoe-gazey epic pop. Reminds me of Cedars.
 
 Truckasaurus "Tea Parties, Guns and Valor" - Kitschy electronica made entirely with computers and games from the 1980s. Seemed too rinky-dink at first but it's pretty catchy.
 
 annnnnd....
 
 the new Metallica album - there are a lot of things I don't like about it, but... I do like it overall and I'm glad that they've returned to the epic jams with multiple guitar solos. James Hetfield continues his fucking awful singing style from the 90s, with a "-YAH!" added to the end of every goddamn line. But other than that, it's solid and is growing on me after 4-5 spins.

This is one of my favorite albums to listen to during the fall.  Try listening to this while driving down the B/W Parkway when the leaves are changing and the temperature is a pleasant 60 degrees.  It's pretty awesome.

Nice pick Booker T. Coincidentally I just bought this album 2 weeks ago and have been listening to it ever since. At first I didn't like it but it really grew on me like fungus with repeated listens. Funny how certain albums are like that...

Oneida covering "Cold Rain and Snow" and "Cream Puff War" (Grateful Dead).
 
 After seeing them a few weeks ago and then hearing this EP, I'm convinced that they're trying to gain entrance into jamband land. Why, I ask would a band with a respectable past such as theirs do this? I thought being labeled as "jamband" = the kiss of death nowadays.

 Pas/Cal - I Was Raised on Matthew, Mark, Luke & Laura
 
 I read somewhere this group was a Belle & Sebastien influenced group from Detroit and seeing as it's not exactly an epicenter for the twee, I was intrigued.  
 
 Well I hear the B&S comparison a better reference point might be De Novo Dahl, as there are some heavier psychedelic elements in their sound ala Super Furry Animals.  And being from Detroit, they occasionally set their guitars to stun...
 
 Regardless, of what they sound like this is easily one of the best records I've heard all year.  Top ten all the way...  A good sign of a top notch record is when listening to it in order to figure out which tracks to choose for DJing, you realize there a several ones has marked with stars as being worthy.

what's weird is that it appears that the group has been disbanded since the end of 2006 and did very few performances outside of detroit... wonder what happens with this group now that the indie elitist snob buzz is being to build...
 
 and i agree on the "not too cute for its own good" comment, as i was thinking the same thing... none of the tempo changes, extended songs sound forced or aren't we clever because we can.

 this is AWESOME, thanks bearman!
This is a great album.
 
 Just be careful though and DO NOT buy the rerelease. A friend of mine figured out that it was pressed using MP3s. All the highs and lows are gone and it's thinner than the original release. Once this happened, Chapterhouse got wind of it and were pissed off. Since then, Cherry Red (the label) was supposed to make good on those who purchased the rerelease but no one (that I am aware of) has yet received their compensation. Glad I got an original copy before the rerelease.
 
 Since then, Blood Music (which isn't quite as good) has been rereleased. Haven't heard the analysis on this one but I'm sure the band made sure everything was on the up and up after the first debacle.

 I'm loving the new Josh Rouse best of the Rykodisk Years collection.
 
 I'm on the fence in the new Blitzen Trapper album.
 
 I like the new Okkervil River, but not as much as the last one.
 
 I like the new Calexico album much more than their previous album.
 
 The new Lambchop gets boring quickly.
 
 The new Broken West album hasn't grown on me, it's still boring.
 
 The new Jenny Lewis kinda sucks.
 
 I like the new Walkmen album alot. Almost sertainly on my top 10 list.
 
 I just got the Pink Martini's debut from 1997 and like it alot.
 
 I think the Lykke Li album may be a grower.

no it means that since i got it on tuesday that i've listened to it enough times to from hmmmm not so sure about this...  to yeah it's sounding like a definite keeper....
 
 plus, the early listens weren't under the most ideal conditions, low volume and distracted a work,
 
 listening to it while driving to work today was the clincher... in fact i test drive lots of music in the car, as it really is the best place where i can focus most of my attention to it.

Squarepusher - Just a Souvenir
 
 
 So so so so so so good.
 
 
 Easily eclipses his last one which I loved as well.
 
 
 Now he just needs to tour again. And if he does tour to support this album, he'd need a drummer. And Brian Chippendale is the only drummer right for the job; so many of these drum tracks sound like they were produced  with him in mind.

 I generally hate seeing a band when I haven't heard the new album, but it's streaming on their   MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/mogwai)  page now.  Holy shit, Batcat is killer.

I've been trying like a dog to get into the TVOTR disc and am just getting nowhere with it. Which is odd to me because I took to Cookie Mountain immediately and really loved that one.
 
 The new Mogwai is very good.

If you don't like it, leave it be. Why are you trying like a dog? Do you think you're SUPPOSED to like it, just because the critics told you you are? Or are you supposed to like it because it's hip, cool looking black guys doing rock music?

 meh.
 
   
totally agree... this outfit would be so much better if it were brendan benson & the racontuers, instead of  jack white executive producing a bunch of his buddies...  this line-up of talent is comparable of greatness along the lines of Big Star or Teenage Fanclub "Bandwagonese"... the mehness of this album was driven home today when i listened to the new Supergrass which has similar 70s rock influences and sound, but comes of like it was recorded by a band and not someone's ego and his paid henchmen.
 
 edit... The ideal Raconteurs album would be the blending of White's and Benson's finest effort "White Blood  Cells" and "Lapaco" with a dash of Greenhornes, what they end up with instead is second string 70's rock...

Because, as I said and you clearly missed or ignored, I loved the previous one and have enjoyed their previous releases as well. Plus, I wouldn't call their sound immediately grabbing, leading me to believe it might be a grower and if that's the case, it seems superficial and shallow to listen it for 2 songs and then decide it sucks. Does that make sense to you?

Go K8teebug! I'm loving the new TVOTR, but then I've loved them since the first time I heard them on the Black Cat Backstage in March 2004. I still think "Staring at the Sun" is the quintessential TV on the Radio song. My first impression is that I like this album more than the "Return to Cookie Mountain". "RtCM" was definitely a grower for me, and I don't think it realized its full potential until I heard the songs live.
 
 I think the new Jenny Lewis album is good, worth getting and listening to for sure, if you're a fan, as long as you don't go it it with expectations of it being as good as or the same as "Rabbit Fur Coat."

Yes, I love Soundpool. Have seen them a few times and they are very good live. Also, I've played them on The Trans-Atlantic Underground via the different stations it's been on including my current station, Brit Radio (http://www.brit-radio-brit.blogspot.com). And if that isn't enough, I've got several Soundpool songs currently airing on my radio station, Air Atlantic Underground (http://www.live365.com/stations/airatlantic). Good stuff. In fact, The TAU is airing now as I type. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00PM till midnight. I think I have some Soundpool in this very show. "For Better Or Worse" is airing. I name each TAU show. All playlists listed in my TAU MySpace (http://www.myspace.com/transatlanticunderground) blog. Because I'm actually listening to it now, it keeps me on topic.   ;)

Jay Reatard - Matador Singles '08
 
 
 He's outdone himself.
 The hard-driving aggression of Blood Visions was scaled back in favor of catchy lo-fi pop songs. And they're all just as good as anything on Blood Visions but in a completely different way. A lot of these new songs are slower; wonder if that'll mean a longer show this time around.

I haven't been listening to much alt-country lately and I've never been a Kasey Chambers fan...but her new album with her husband Shane Nicholson is excellent.

 His recent touring (he's been on that Holiday Surprise thing since the Pitt show I think) got me to give it a first spin in a long time.

Yussuf Jerusalem - A Heart full of Sorrow
 
 
 Lo-fi fuzzed out pop in the vein of the current Siltbreeze roster (Pink Reason, Psychedelic Horseshit, Eat Skull, etc.)
 
 
 Me likey. Well except for the weird black metal intro track that sticks out like a sore thumb.

 Love is All - A Hundred Things Keep me up at Night

Post by: nkotb on October 31, 2008, 08:35:00 am
I'm a bit geeked out on her, so I'm probably biased, but I think it's a pretty killer cover.  I was reading somewhere that she's never (or rarely) learned someone else's song, so this is a first.  It actually keeps her style while still being highly recognizable as Journey.  Maybe a treat for her DC9 show?

the guitar work is interesting, but she's a tad lacking in the vocal skillz dept.  i've heard performances of the same caliber at a local karaoke night - solid, but not pro.

 pretty much what you'd expect... sound like thom yorke, only more so (and glitchier and more experimental).  this isn't a dance remix album, unless you spin some really weird sets.  the tet and the field remixes are sweet, burial is solid but nothing new.  good album.

Bloc Party- Intimacy
 Overall, not as good as the first two.  Still, most fans will enjoy it, some of the songs feels unfinished and weaker songwriting is disguised with glossier production.  Ion Square is a great song.
 
 Cure 4.13 Dream
 What can you say.   Not going to convert anybody, but quite good,much improved from their previous outing.  In the vein of Wish.
 
 The Wombats- A guide to love, loss & desperation
 
 Caffeinated rock, some resemblance to the Futureheads but better.  Fans of Los Campesinos should give it a listen.

They are sort of about equal to me though I may lean more towards The High Llamas. Though I think they are very good, I've never really been a big Stereolab fan. Depends on my mood and the particular song.

Not the new release but I have an EP I bought a year or two ago and everything was lost on me. Even had a song linked up on Air Atlantic Underground Radio when I first started broadcasting the station but had to stop streaming it because the song was getting on my nerves so badly. Honestly don't know if I'm just listening to the wrong releases or if that band and I don't mesh. I do want to hear it though since so many others with similiar tastes seem to like it.

If we did get any promos, I sure haven't seen them. I've inserted myself into the comp chain, but there's like a dozen hipsters who hover all over the mailroom looking for the free shit.

Everything uploaded to the torrent sites has been  immediately yanked because they're all either transcodes of that 128 vinyl rip or the 160 cd rip.

So aggrevating.


The 160 sounds ok but each track is so densely layered with sound that I'm sure quite a bit is being lost.

first single of eminem's new album (http://www.spin.com/articles/first-listen-eminem-unveils-new-song) - meh.

also recently dug up this one:

(http://mixtapemagazin.files.wordpress.com/2006/11/radiodread.jpg)

radiohead's "ok computer" in a reggae style, from the people who brought us "dub side of the moon".  just about any song can be turned into reggae, but it seems like this album was the perfect one for the treatment.  this album is a guilty pleasure of mine.

http://www.popmatters.com/pm/feature/69093-slipped-discs-2008-4


Those who claim mainstream country music has lost its connection to the past only needed to look as far as the 2008 country sales charts to find evidence of the contrary, in the form of Jamey Johnson and his second album That Lonesome Song. He pays homage to Waylon Jennings, worries that all the true cowboys have ridden away, and shows pride in his music fitting alphabetically ?between Jennings and Jones?. None of that would matter if he weren?t also carrying on the actual traditions of country, singing the heck out of songs rooted in the darkest side of the human experience. He sings about divorce, bad behavior and sadness, and does so with feeling, wit and a sense of humor. That lonesome song keeps carrying along, and he carries it, through a harrowing, moving, album-length consideration of the hard times people face, have faced, and will always face. Dave Heaton

THIS is amazing, Yuksek is an electronic producer but this album sounds like lost [ironically] MGMT/Cut Copy/Midnight Juggernaut songs. Or sort of a mixture of all 3. I'm really surprised by this. Definetly suggest picking this up and giving it a spin, I think one time through is all you need to love this album.

Apes & Androids - Blood Moon: love me some glam rock.  i'm pissed that i missed their recent show in williamsburg.

Zeigeist - The Jade Motel: really wanted to like this one, but the first listen left me indifferent.  maybe it's a grower, i'll give it another spin.

Cosmic Balearic Beats Vol.1 - tasty, sultry chill house/electro lounge/space disco/etc.  great music to listen to while working, for me.  highly recommended for fans for slower-paced yet funky EDM.

the new Brakes has leaked - solid stuff - Hey Hey is an instant classic - possibly a little more power poppy than its predecessors but thats a plus in my book - right now have it on shuffle with the first two

I'm listening to it as well.  I think this is an album requiring a lot of listens.

On first spin, I had a few thoughts, which I shared with sweetcell via IM.  My portion of that conversation:

I'm frustrated with Bono throughout the album on my first listen.  I want more from him vocally.  because I think the rest of the band is doing some really interesting stuff.  I don't like his melodies or rhythms a lot of the time on this record.  I want to give it some time, but I'm just not sold on it right now.  The album isn't remarkably different; to me it is like U2 with Eno as a featured player, almost, rather than Eno changing U2's dynamic dramatically.

I've been listening today, and I like it more than I did yesterday.  I don't know if it will continue to improve or if it will level out, but I'm still not too impressed with Bono.  Certain songs are sitting better than others - and there are some ACE guitar parts from the Edge on this.
Title: Re: What Are You Listening To?
Post by: sweetcell on February 19, 2009, 06:27:06 pm
ha! callat, you beat me to it... i was going to post our chat here, and replace your name with "Boardee X".  some of my thoughts from the chat:

it's very U2. some nice song-writing, but i wish they would have done something a bit more... adventurous.
lyrics could be stronger.
i was hoping eno was going to jolt them a bit. don't really feel it, other than a few electronic flourishes
over-all, my first impression was that this is a solid pop album... but do U2 really need to write another pop album?
so in the end, probably the issue is more me than the album. i wanted something different, and U2 gave me a U2 album. hard to fault them for doing that :)


above all based on one listen, at the gym.  about to have my second listen on the drive home tonight.

Post by: Relaxer on February 19, 2009, 06:36:55 pm
I spun the new U2 once last night and a couple times I thought "hey, that's kind of neat." I personally was cringing throughout all of Unknown Caller but maybe I'll let its earnest vibes do their work. I still think it was a little too uplifting though.

Meanwhile, on Joe Marshmallow's recommendation, I gave the new Trail of Dead a blast and liked it a LOT. We'll see if this grows or fades, but I was happy to hear their ol' black magic again.

Tonight I hope to check out the new Akron/Family record, which is getting lots of high praise.

Listened to the new U2 on their myspace stream.  Only first listen, but pretty underwhelming I thought.  I guess I was expecting more with Eno at the helm, especially given what he did with Coldplay.  I'm hoping it will improve with further listens.

Have been listening to the Hold Steady's latest- Stay Positive, not exactly my type of music, but a great listen nonetheless.  Will only get better with warmer weather.

What do you think of this?

Honestly, I was very, very dissappointed other than for the song "Hypermode" which even that is only okay to me. His previous release, Avoiding The Consequences is so much better and I was expecting something at least somewhere near the quality. ATC is such a good album. Recollections sounds to me like Ryan just decided to release some old demo he had lying around which even made me wonder if that was why he called it Recollections Of A Memory. It's definitely a backslide.

Oh, I'm not counting Neverchanger. If you don't have it, do get the single release with the Ulrich Schnauss & other remixes. The Schnauss track alone is a fantastic piece!!! The plain old track on Rec. sucks in comparison.

I really wanted to like this release since I'm such a big fan of ATC & the Neverchanger release but was shocked at how bad I thought it was. Maybe I just need to listen to it again.

With that said, I do wish that I could attend the show. Please let me know how he is live?

If you like this, you must get their full length called Interceptors. Very cool!

Every time their song "Cathode Ray" and Ringo Deathstarr's "Some Kind Of Sad" come on my radio station, I have to crank them up. (On my end; not broadcast wise.) They are the songs that I've been totally obsessed with lately. Highly recommend both if you like a bit of Rock in your Psychedelia.

Really 3 songs. The other is "99 Pills" by A Beautiful Noise. Not so much their other songs but this one sounds like something right out of the Spiritualized catelogue.

I've heard a lot of people say that AFTER he died, I loved ODB but he wasn't my favorite. Method is number 1 and then I think ODB and probably GZA. ODB was still awesome but I think people give him credit because he went Big Baby Jesus and clocked out. I pay my respects, he was awesome no doubt, but he wasn't my favorite.

I was prepared the give this the benefit of the doubt when I heard about this project, but I have to say, I don't care much for the way this sounds.  The guitar tones sound very sterile & digital, and Taylor Hanson still sounds like...Taylor Hanson in 1997.  I also wish the hook was better and there was more Iha.

Yeah...not sure if its a new(er) feature, but it does if you set up iTunes to auto-sync.  I've ever noticed I doign it without the auto-sync on my wife's iPod.

apparently these guys didn't get the memo that the 90's rave scene, and associated frenetic breakbeat, is dead.  this album could have come out 12 years ago (although the production is cleaner than some of their past efforts).  surprising amount of guitar in there.  definitely recommended if you're a fan of the band, but they really need to lay off the repetitive nonsense lyrics.

i'll file this one under "temporary guilty pleasure" - fun running music and it'll be a great show.

the new reissue of ten by pearl jam.  at first i say, wow bucko . . . way to bring an album back from the dead and breathe incredible life into it with a sound so brilliant you can taste the notes.  and the bonus songs and unplugged stuff are indeed a delight.  then i think, wow fucko . . . way to ruin a generational classic perfection the first time it was released.  are you never happy with what you got?  finally i just go, "shut the shit up you idiot," and listen to a great reissue.

and if you don't feel like pulling out the 7", it's on Hardcore UFOs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardcore_UFOs)

went to see these guys last night, only because of the name . . . and after one song i was in love.  by the end of the show, i had bought both their albums and am looking forward to when they come back to my "neck of the woods" at camp barefoot.  right on!  man, i have a wicked hangover.

Good one. My favorite song on here is 'Honey' though 'Washout' is the song they push - my 2nd favorite. What's yours?

Wish I could have seen them when they played the Metro Gallery last July. Hope they come back sometime when I can make the show.

Right now it is Washout, with Hermissenda in second.  I am going to try and catch the Screen Vinyl Image/Ports of Call show this week at Velvet and that should be a great show.

every song on the album is solid, not a single piece of filler.  the guitar tone is gorgeous throughout. 

the song that has me at the moment is "getting old is getting old".  check out the audio velvet they have on the vocals - the reverb tail becomes a very subtle pad at the end of each verse.  pure cream.  very much looking forward to hearing that effect uncompressed.

i've interspersed this album with others since i got it, it's been one on one off.  12-15 listens later, i'm still in love with it.

i'm digging the songs as well... dean's got that great dirty guitar sound without the usual jack white histrionics  stomping all over the place.  hopefully their debut won't be the let down the racontuers one turned out to be.  this is also more evidence that brendan benson and the raconteurs would have been a great thing as i just don't think jack and he ever gelled as songwriters together.

Tinted Windows

file this one under "but the little girls understand"

Tinted Windows a pop/rock supergroup of sorts with Taylor Hanson, Bun E. Carlos, Adam Schlesinger and Jame Iha. I sure was skeptical about these guys when the EW reviewer name dropped both Big Star and the Knack when writing about their debut album, so decided to be sure to check them out.

While the record isn't going to change the world or end up on any best of 2009 lists, I suspect this band will be hot ticket if they hit the club and will  turn some heads if they appear on any second stages of summer festivals.  It's one of the best commercial power pop records I've heard in an awhile, in that it has substance behind that slick production.  Contains a  couple really great singles and better than average album tracks, which are growing on me with repeated listens. 

Overall the sound is best described as Cheap Trick crossed with The Knack.


oh and I'm going through a bit of a The Turtles phase at the moment, perfect springtime music..

I know I'm way late to the party on this, but holy sh*t, I had no idea.  Came across a New York Dolls concert from the Matrix in SF from 1973 or 74 on YouTube and it blew me away.  I had thought they were 'kitsch' and Johnny Thunders was just a junkie cartoon character . . . I should have known better . . . they were pure rock and roll and Thunders was incredible . . .

Same.  I'm enjoying it.  It's definitely the "New Morning" of his modern day phase.

Good record, nothing that jumps out as "classic," but just an easy record to listen to beginning to end.

I also see it growing on me by the time summer hits.

Funny, I was just coming in here to post this very CD.

Quite nice! What do you think?

Btw, did you order that 93MilllionMilesFromTheSun CD? Mine is currently over the Atlantic. Can't flipping wait for that one to arrive! Have you heard their promo CD or anything from it? Of course, I've got several cuts in regular rotation on Air Atlantic Underground. Rob and Nick sent out these full length promos last summer to a limited amount of friends and fans. I was lucky enough to get one as most within our circle were. We all placed that promo in our best of 2008 releases because it was so amazingly good. Can't wait to hear what they did with the official release. That promo was jam packed full (almost an hour's worth!) of very good music. If I know we will see each other sometime, I can give you a CD-r. Because of a certain trust factor I need to maintain, I absolutely never, ever let promos out but since they freely gave these out to the gang, I know they won't mind. You're gonna love it!

Nice I definitely want to check that out.  The official album is really good.  Lots of guitar effects, unintelligible singing, droning riffs, etc.  In other words, it is some good noise! I didnt get the hard copy, just the digital download that they have. 

As for SPC ECO, they are now on my sleep playlist on my ipod.  They reminded me of Ulrich Schnauss. 

I hope both bands play shows around here in the near future...

I've been listening to this band Dominique on the Kompakt label. They're perfect.

They released an album called "More Love Now" last year, and it rules. Richard Davis, who is a microhouse producer/singer, known for his work with Superpitcher and Michael Mayer, is a core member of the band. I *love* them.

The Future of the Left's 2nd release this year, following the live one, is pretty great. Definitely has the McLusky vibe going and it rocks.

New Meat Puppets is good but I need to stop hoping for another II or Up on the Sun. New one is similar to Rise To Your Knees in that it sounds great, the songs are good, but its not particularly compelling.

Listened to half of the new Sonic Youth yesterday. It's okay but I haven't been too excited about anything they've done in awhile, other than Sonic Nurse.

Jason Lytle's first solo one is pretty damn good and is growing on me. Naturally it sounds a bit like Grandaddy but kind goes on that whole "solo debut" route with the sweeping strings et al. Doesn't hold a candle to Sophtware or Sumday but I've been playing it for a week or so.

The-Dream Love vs. Money -- Checked this out because of all the hype and it's pretty damn good! I'm not much of a R&B fan, but this is seriously catchy and well-produced pop in the R. Kelly vein.

The new Gallows album just leaked last night so am really looking forward to hearing that one.

One of the five best albums of the 90's.

Boo-Tay!

The son of country legend Bobby Bare, Bare Jr.'s music bears only a passing resemblance to that of his father. Sure, there's plenty of traditional country roots that can be heard in the grooves of Boo-Tay -- how could you grow up in Nashville during the '70s with folks like Johnny Cash and George Jones hanging around your house and not soak up some of their influence? For Bare Jr., however, country is not a means to an end but rather another ingredient to throw into an energetic musical gumbo that includes healthy portions of Southern rock and punkish intensity. The songs on Boo-Tay don't just pour out of your stereo speakers, they reach out and grab you by the ears, Bare Jr. kicking out the jams with a vigor that surely had Hank Williams spinning in his grave. Bare's wonderfully imperfect vocals often spiral out of control like a drunken dervish, while guitarist Mike Grimes tears off fleshy, razor-sharp riffs like some sort of bloodthirsty predator. Bare's songs tread familiar lyrical ground, albeit with his own peculiar individual fingerprints, the subject matter on Boo-Tay ranging from self-loathing and lost innocence to betrayal and woefully unrequited love. Cuts like "The Most," "Faker," "Why Don't You Love Me," and the wickedly dark "I Hate Myself" (written with family friend Shel Silverstein) are overflowing with brilliant imagery, not-so-subtle wordplay, and hard-rocking instrumentation, the band adding just enough twang to convince you that they hail from Nashville. One of the more auspicious debut albums of the late '90s, Bare Jr. the band delivered a swift kick to the backside of alternative country and country-rock poseurs alike with Boo-Tay.

93MMFTS showed up at my doorstep the other day. As expected, it's a very pleasant piece of work. Over an hour's worth of pure fuzzy Gaze.

Still too soon to say for sure but I kind of think the promo is just a tad better. Of course, that may be just that I need to give it a few more listens to fully absorb what all it has to offer. Though the selections are a bit different, they are very, very close is quality. It's just that in its newness, the promo has that edge by a nose. Seems someone else said the same thing, if I recall correctly. I'm also surprised how many different songs there are between the two. In fact, one of my favorites from the promo isn't even on the official.

Between 93MMFTS and the new Spc-Eco, I'm set for awhile.  ;D

    * Captain Sensible − guitar (1978-1984, 1989, 1991, 1996-present); bass (1976-1978)
    * Monty Oxy Moron − keyboards (1996-present)
    * Stu West − bass (2005-present)
    * Pinch − drums (1999-present)

Kind of disappointing Rat Scabies and Brian James aren't around these days, but they've pretty much had a rotating lineup from the very beginning.  It's still gonna rock.

Here comes Alina with two black eyes, she's given herself a transfusion
She's filled herself with panda blood to avoid all the confusion
I said the sun rises and falls with you, and various things about love

Her extinction was nearly absolute when she turned her back on me

I tried to get into that Fucked Up album but never could. It did, however, lead me to their previous album Hidden World and that one is all kinds of awesome.

The other day while randomly surfing the waves I stumbled on a download of Cheap Trick's In Color, re-recorded in 2002 with Steve Albini but never released or anything. And it is awesome.

Thanks for the tip on the 1st Fucked Up LP, Relaxer. I always enjoy hearing what other people's thoughts are on this stuff. And the Cheap Trick Albini-produced record sounds like an awesome idea. It always amazes me what stuff Albini digs. I never did have a chance to peruse his massive wall(s) of LPs.

All the big chains in the UK demanded a black slip cover over the CD as it was considered "inappropriate".


It's the same artist who did the Holy Bible artwork (which this record is heavily compared to)

I can see why the new album art would be a bit controversial.  But man...that is a nice painting. And the Holy Bible cover painting looks interesting as well. Who did them?

New Jets Overhead album is very good.  They list their influence as Pink Floyd, The Velvet Underground, Radiohead, The Mamas and the Papas, CSNY, Fleetwood Mac, Spiritualized....  70s psych rock/folk paired ambient to noisier  post punk/shoegazer arrangements all work really well if you as me.

Based on only having heard their last two albums and her two solo albums, I assumed they were an act that put out albums with a few great songs and lots of filler.

But alas, this one is excellent from start to finish.

To mark the 10th anniversary of the Icelandic release of their
breakthrough album 'Agaetis Byrjun', Sigur Ros have made available
two exclusive live performances from the original launch party
concert at the Icelandic Opera House on the night of June 10, 1999 -
back when few people outside Reykjavik hadn't the foggiest clue who
they were.

Watch it here http://vimeo.com/4608579
.

'Nyja Lagid' video - filmed originally for Icelandic TV and unseen
for years, this shows the boys when they really were still boys,
performing a song that never made it onto Agaetis Byrjun (or any
subsequent album) and disappeared from their set-list shortly after
this date. The film also records the last show by original drummer
Gusti. The audio of this live recording was featured on Sigur Ros's
first ex-Iceland release, the 'Svefn-G-Englar' EP.

Download 'Hafssol' here
http://www.sigur-ros.co.uk/band/disco/agaetis.php
.

'Hafssol' audio - a fascinatingly transitional rendition of the
seminal 'Hafssol' (later 'Hafsol'), which has been one of the true
survivors in the band's live show, having appeared in almost
unrecognisably nebulous form on their debut album 'Von', and then
gone through endless transmogrification year by year until its
arrival on 2007's 'Hvarf/Heim' double pack. (If you follow the link
above you can sign up to download the song.)

Hope you enjoy them both. They'll be further celebrations to mark the
10th anniversary of the release of 'Agaetis Byrjun' outside Iceland in
due course, but we will of course let you know.

Dead Weather's decent so far, only heard the first 4 or 5 songs. I like the sound, can't wait to sit down and hear the rest. Wale's doing what he does, his track with Lady Gaga is meh though.

I'm listening to the Dead Weather LP myself... I have to say I'm underwhelmed but I have to listen to it a lot more.. I have faith in Jack White.. he's never let me down again...

I wish they'd fit it on one platter... I don't think its much more than 46 minutes and the etching on Side D is just pointless...at least put some extra tracks on it like the songs from the 45... also no cd or download with LP which is OK as I pretty much only listen to vinyl but still...

i'd suggest, rather strongly, that you go to the show.  i saw them perform a while back in NYC and their stage show is solid - very rock'n'roll in the classic sense. 

jack white fans will get their fill - he comes out from behind the drum kits for several songs - but be aware that alison is the leader of the pack, and a great one at that.  she keeps the boys in line.

i'll might be seeing them on thursday in NYC, will depend on my work/travel schedule.  i hope i can make it.
