Thurston Moore - Psychic Hearts

Still Sonic Youth-ish. I think it may be slightly more approachable at times.

I'm pretty sure nobody has posted this yet. And seeing as how it is such a great album, I decided to put it up.

Enjoy

Here's a solid hip-hop album in my opinion. His style is pretty oddball. He's a talented rapper, but has several awkward songs, with awkward hooks, just very unique and some humorous references. Somewhat along the lines of Busdriver.

Here's "Chemistry for Changing Times" by The Blacktop Cadence.  Recorded wayyy back in 96/97, and remastered/rereleased in 2003, it's a fairly varied take on the Braid/American Football midwestern emo sound, and features Chris and George (vocals/guitar, and drums, respectively) from Hot Water Music.

Some of us cannot work with .wma files. Can you rip to .mp3 and re-upload this, please?

sorry, i keep forgetting - i left media player on the default rip settings when i first got my laptop, and i just keep it that way now, for continuity's sake... but yeah, here's an mp3 version:



Code: [Select]
http://www.mediaf!re.com/download.php?vlwjmaybgnt
i converted the files with THIS converter program, you might find it useful if anyone else makes the same mistake as me, but doesn't have a converter.


also, shouldn't there be an '09 reboot of this thread now?

capital idea old chap!

i've gotta say when i look through this thread, probably only about 1 in 10 uploads interest me enough to actually download, but those i have downloaded since joining the forums have all been pretty amazing, and more often than not i've ended up forking out the cash and actually buying the album after a few listens.

The Queers - Don't Back Down


Quote
It doesn't get any better than this. On Don't Back Down the rip-roaring punk songs with no melody ("No Tit," for instance) are more than counterbalanced by the many mind-blowingly catchy songs ("Punk Rock Girls," "Number One," "Janelle, Janelle," ad nauseam). Some of the songs, dare it be said, even surpass many of Brian Wilson's perfect pop songs. Whereas the Ben Weasel-fronted group the Riverdales aspire to be nothing more than Ramones imitators, the Queers successfully use the musical vocabularies developed by the Ramones (as well as Brian Wilson and others) and take their songs to new levels.

ALRIGHT PEOPLE LISTEN UP!  I deeply urge you to download this album, Nomad, by Lotus.  I upped this last month and I was really hoping for people's responses because I think this is one of the greatest albums ever. Period.  It is so great, the melodic rhythms and the chill vibes it creates through each song just destroy you and get you going. I don't know how to explain it, its sort of jam, electronic, dance-tronic type of music. I STRONGLY URGE YOU TO DOWNLOAD.  I'm talking some of the best electronic jam music ever.  And i've listened to so much of that stuff, I'm an audiophile, and I spend most of my life listening to music,  but never have I ever heard an album so amazing, that flowed so well, and is just so fucking GREAT.  This is as good as it gets folks.  This album completes my life.  Please download, and tell me what you think, I guarantee you will be pleased.

www.mediafire.com/?jqwdxmjunnwListen to Livingston Storm, Spirtualize, Ball of Energy, hell listen to THE WHOLE DAMN THING. It's so great.  Sorry about the outrageous enthusiasm but I just can't stand keeping this to myself.  I need other people to know about them, because very few people do. Check it out folks!  :-)  Enjoy!

I saw that the rap-duo Cyne was posted earlier, and there's a couple EP's that were left out.  Here they are.

Just in case you've never heard of Cyne, their a rap group that has avoided the material trappings of mainstream “hip-hop” as well as the lyrically self-congratulatory social consciousness of much of today’s underground, the 2 emcees and 2 producers of CYNE are everything hip-hop should be - lyrical commentary that opens minds and moves bodies. Hailing from West Africa and the cultural melting pot that is Florida, CYNE has spent the past four years working to make sense of the world through the introspective interplay of emcees Akin and Cise Star. Akin attacks the mic with a conversational flow that runs with a sense of impassioned urgency, while Cise Star’s delivery rolls over the listeners with an uncanny self-assured smoothness. Together, they reach back to the self-reflective days of hip-hop’s past, they engage themselves and the world in discussion of matters social and personal import.  Beneath the lyrical venom of Akin and Cise Star is the dynamic, layered genius of Speck and Enoch. Combining elements of rock, trip-hop, jazz and countless other influences, they create atmospheric landscapes of simple complexity that push the creative capabilities of hip-hop.  You have to check these guys out.  Best hip-hop you will ever hear.

Samchez this is awesome, i love this, parts of it are pretty funny too.  Good upload man!
This is a little different this guys called Jay Electronica.  This was the first Jay Electronica project I heard. To this day, I still haven't heard a hell of a lot from him, I know he's got a few compilations and a super-rare War With The Dragon tape out there (by the way, if anyone's got that tape...holla!). This is a short 9-minute EP (not counting the Foreward), that has influences from the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I don't know how it connects to the movie (I never saw it), but this is an excellent and interesting EP. It's full of quirky distorted music samples that seem to come in and out at their own will. The production is just as weird, yet in a good way - it seems almost like a fantasy movie/video game soundtrack. When Jay does spit, which isn't long on this short EP, he tears up the mic. He's got a fast, clear delivery and has a strong presence on the mic, and lyrically, he kills it. Unfortunately, there's not much here to judge him on so far, but he's definitely one to watch. Please download this, its quality hip-hop.

Nice to hear you enjoyed the Homeboy Sandman. It's just a surprisingly fun album to listen to. Was curious to hear some feedback from those who downloaded. I'll have to check out that Jay Electronica when I get home from work. Also, if anyone's interested, I could upload Homeboy Sandman's first album Nourishment (Second Helpings). A little less oddball than the one I posted, but yet still fun to listen to. He also has a 32 track mixtape called There Is No Spoon that's given away as a free download on his website, I could post up.

Rules:

No hot-linking images or albums. You can re-host images at http://imageshack.us.

Ensure your tags are correct and that you have specified both Artist/Album in your post.

Upload your files in either a .zip or a .rar archive to mediaf!re.com, in multiple parts if the album is over 100mbs. The reason for this is that we know mediaf!re is safe and efficient and allows multiple downloads. The ads on other sites, such as Sendspace, are known to contain viruses on the page. Get yourself checked out.

Post your link using code tags. It's the # icon above the policeman emoticon. This prevents the links from being traced back to the forums, lowering the chance that the wrong people notice the thread, potentially threatening Jeph with legal action.

Also, please do NOT request albums.

Repost the rules at the top of each new page.

Well, for my first contribution to the '09 thread, i'm gonna go with "100 Broken Windows" by Idlewild.  If you thought Mogwai were the best thing to come out of Scotland, think again.  Idlewild are an indie-rock band that mix the harsher end of indie-rock with some punk/post-punk-ish tendencies, huge melodies, a slight REM influence, but most of all, some amazing songwriting.  "100 Broken Windows" is their second full length album (not counting the "Captain" mini-album), and was released in 2000.  It's generally considered to be their best, a sentiment shared by the band's vocalist Roddy Woomble, and its sound seems to be heavily influenced by the cold, bleak Scottish countryside the album was written in.  I seriously cannot stop listening to this album, it's fast becoming one of my favourites of all time.  Here's a (very well written) review by a guy I know on the same site I often review for:  http://www.sputnikmusic.com/album.php?albumid=1305

Anyway, without further ado, "100 Broken Windows" by Idlewild

Ether Hour - A Plan Designed At Home

Ether Hour is a small, local band from Pullman, Washington, and apparently described as "Alternative Indie Pop". I would describe it as "Excellent". It's a little hard to describe, in a musical sense. I'd suggest just giving it a listen.

Good idea i think, like Spluff said and i know for a fact there's definitely alot of dead links on the old one. And it's always great to start fresh for a new year. I'm going to upload some Twilight Singers later if anyone is interested. Hey VSnaresFreak thanks for the tortoise stuff i've been meaning to check out there stuff for a while now. Twilight Singers Later...

I'm pretty sure there would be many pages of dead links in the 08 one.

Less than a month ago I was downloading things which were within the first ten pages.  I'm all for deleting some old pages, if they're worthless, but really, leave the thread.  Retitle it, keep all the music readily available at the top of the page, and let life go on.

there are.  i can't remember specifics, but i know i went to get a few fabriclive albums for my brother and quite a few were down. 

we can still keep the '08 thread - just lock it, unsticky it, sticky this one, and then put the link to the '08 thread in the rules box that gets posted on every page.  that way there's always a link to the old one close to hand.  i like the idea of having a new thread for a new year, gives us all an incentive to outdo our last year's posting!

Well if your familiar with the genius of The Afghan Whigs, Then you'll love this, which to me is even more genius. This is The Twilight Singers...
The Twilight Singers - Blackberry Belle (My Favourite !!!)

Quote
AMG Quote
Greg Dulli returns to his Twilight Singers project with the atmospheric Blackberry Belle. This time around, the dirtily soulful self-hater/lover is joined at one point or another by multi-instrumentalist Mathias Schneeberger, guitarist Alvin Youngblood Hart, Galactic drummer Stanton Moore, the incomparable Petra Haden, and Mark Lanegan, who takes main vocal duties for the shadowy devil of closer "Number Nine." Apollonia even makes an appearance as a backing vocalist for a few tracks. Somehow, even with its grainy appropriations of trip-hop (especially "Teenage Wristband," which sounds like a holdover from the first half of the Singers' 2000 debut), everything on Blackberry Belle begins to eventually sound like Leonard Cohen. The moody black-and-white palm tree cover art is no joke — this is an album that views sunlight through the cracked blinds of a claustrophobic hotel lounge. "There's a riot goin' on/Inside of me/Won't you come inside/See what I see?," "I think we're lost, don't worry/I've been here before," "If you're in trouble then I'll follow" — it's melancholy and death wishes in the first person here, and love only exists as a means to a bitter end. These are themes that Dulli has made a habit of discussing; nevertheless, they're made newly potent over Blackberry's dusky, shifting rhythms. Things are too scary to be danceable, although the album definitely has a groove. "Decatur St." mixes Massive Attack with Afghan Whigs, while "Follow You Down" is shimmering and stripped-down, with only frail guitar and piano to guide its death wish lyrics. Drummer Moore injects some funk into "Feathers," and "Esta Noche" finds the inherent beat in a European dial tone. Quietly building opener "Martin Eden" might make the defining statement of the record with its initial lines: "Black out the windows/It's party time." Cohen's melancholy is coursing through Dulli's tortured veins; it's good to see that he's still getting top-notch talent to aid in the nightly bloodletting.

The Twilight Singers - Powder Burns

Quote
AMG Quote
Addiction, as Greg Dulli knows, is an all-consuming occupation. Finding your next fix is what drives every move, every breathe, every word. It is your devil and it is your god, your sickness and your well-being. It is, in short, your entire life. And so the fact that Dulli sobered up in the time between the Twilight Singers' previous album, She Loves You, and Powder Burns doesn't make it surprising that this latest release is about that disease. But Dulli's too smart — and was too intimately involved with drugs — to make a nice, clean record with easy, straightforward statements that float like bubbles into his audience's outstretched, pudgy fingers. Instead, he spits and growls and coughs questions into our thin, gaping faces, questions that he knows have no answers, and that even if they did, he wouldn't want to hear them anyway. Because Powder Burns is too personal. It's a debate within Dulli himself, an argument that twists and wrenches itself through 11 different conversations and ends up with nothing more than a sigh and a wistful prayer for salvation. Musically, the album is as hard as the group has ever gotten. From the intense, driving opener that crashes into "I'm Ready" like a wall of water, to the hedonistic snarl in "My Time (Has Come)," Dulli is pure carnal emotion. Even in the slower songs, with the slinking drums of "Candy Cane Crawl," or the greasy, nasally promises he offers in "Forty Dollars," it's nothing but his own blood that's pushing the music along, pulsing with the beat itself. Though he's singing from different perspectives, trying to take on other personas, it's obvious that everything he's saying is about him, his own problems, his own story. The songs reference each other, reference other songs and literary works, bite into one another like a pack of hungry dogs and leave blood and patches of hair wherever they've been, but continue to limp down that smudged path that separates pleasure from pain. And Dulli's a genius at straddling that line, sliding into that muddy spot between sobriety and being high ("daylight is creeping, I feel it burn my face," he moans), that dangerous place between the flame and the coals, where he crouches, the hair on the back of his hands singed, hoping that maybe somehow he'll be able to get out successfully. If Powder Burns is any indication of his strength and cunning, he's already found an escape.

The Twilight Singers - A Stitch in Time [EP]

Quote
In anticipation for the Gutter Twins' debut, and following up an excellent album, Greg Dulli and the Twilight Singers released A Stitch in Time in late 2006 on iTunes, which did well enough for One Little Indian to issue the EP in physical form in January of the following year. Though the two songs with the former Screaming Tree Mark Lanegan are covers, the way the singers' voices, both rough with cigarettes and acceptance, work together, especially on the darkly pulsating version of Massive Attack's "Live with Me," promises something spectacular to come on their original material. The longing present in their voices becomes a nearly tangible being, subject to the same suffering that everyone else is, and as the guitars howl in the background, there's a sense of foreboding danger in the request, "I've been thinking about you baby; come live with me." Dulli's work with Joseph Arthur on "Sublime" is good, too, showing off his softer, less anguished side, and the originals, "The Lure Would Prove Too Much" and "They Ride," reflect the two types of songs, the sweeter, reflective ballad and the driving, carnal rock, that were found on Powder Burns. At this point, Dulli has already proven his versatility and immense talent as a musician, but that just means A Stitch in Time is a gift that you should be grateful to receive.

Once the old one goes away, I suppose I'll do another Boris Megapost/discog.

Though, I still don't have the split with Tomsk.

For the most part, the only links that expire in the other thread are "big name" artists, and those are the albums you should just be able to hit filestube for anyway.

I download extremely old links all the time from the existing thread.

One of the wonderful things about mediafire is that the files actually stay up unless the site purposefully takes then down or the uploader takes them down. Having a 2009 thread is just redundant /redundant sentence.

Thanks for playing though!
