Title: What are you listening to (and discuss it).
Post by: KharBevNor on 10 Jun 2006, 10:06
Personally, I didn't see any particular lack of discussion in the old thread. There was plenty of stuff going on there.

Anyway, I'm listening to John Otway - Really Free

And, to get discussion and debate rolling, I posit that this song is, in fact, certainly one of the ten best punk songs of all time.

If one of the other ten is not The UK Subs - Strangelhold, I will have to punch you.


Which I'm actually listening to.
Title: What are you listening to (and discuss it).
Post by: KharBevNor on 10 Jun 2006, 10:22
If any UK Subs song, I would be thinking more along the lines of Party In Paris, but I guess Stranglehold is pretty awesome.

The 3rd and the Mortal - Sophisticated Vampires.

The 3rd and the Mortal are one of those bands which it's kinda funny that only metalheads really listen to. They're also pretty damn strange.

The 3rd and the Mortal are actually really good. I allways thought they were this band that only teenage goths and "scene" metalheads liked. I was pretty suprised when I listened to In This Room.

Anyway, I was going to PM est asking to bring back the old thread. A new one might be better.


Death in June - In Sacrilege
Title: What are you listening to (and discuss it).
Post by: KharBevNor on 10 Jun 2006, 12:33
The thing is, despite the fact they are in no way a metal band, 3rd and the Mortal are still mainly operating within the metal community and underground because all their connections and whatnot are in there. It's the same with most bands that switch from metal to something wierd, and a lot of metal bands side-projects. :Of the Wand and the Moon:, for example, are actually more widely known amongst metalheads than they are amongst neo-folk fans, and the same is far more true of groups like Deathstars and Alien Vampires.

Like a Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan


My favourite Bob Dylan song, and Zappa's favourite song too.

The hammond organ is just brilliant in this track.

Whatever, goddamn Hunter S. Thompson fanboy.

I am listening to the Let It Be...Naked album.

Frankly, it's a massive improvement on the original. 'Dig A Pony' is masterful. It's still one of their weakest albums though. They should've released Abbey Road last.

I still prefer the string-drenched 'Long And Winding Road.'

I'm listening to "Wide Open Spaces" by the freakin' Dixie Chicks, after downloading not one, not two, but three of their songs last night. I think I'm getting soft in my old age (21), because I used to be all, "Ew, country". Now I find that I'm liking good songs regardless of genre, which is refreshing.

the new joan of arc 'eventually, all at once'.
it's completely acoustic, which is a first for this band. there is also no electronic trickery or link tracks. it's the least joan of arc sounding album since 'so much for staying alive and lovelessness' back in 2003.

if you play it really fucking loud it sounds great.

I think it's mostly Matt Bellamy's voice (although some parts in Absolution really remind me of Radiohead). Anyway, listenening to more Radiohead (in my oipinion, others surely disagree) is never a bad idea.

Muse - Exo-Politics

Very nice. Blackholes and Revelations is now probably my favourite Muse album.

Clinic-The Return of Evil Bill

I envision a spaghetti western with a cast of escaped mental patients. My favorite Clinic album & song.

I agree that Matt Bellamy's voice is similar to Thom's, though imo they sounded most like Radiohead on the first couple tracks of Showbiz (especially during the high notes on Muscle Museum).

Basically yeah, same thing. Basically saying "Es ist dunkel draußen" and "Es ist finster draußen" is the same thing. At least it is to the best of my knowledge.

Anywho, I am listening to:

ADD - Zoostation

Which is actually a cover of the U2 song. I am personally not a big fan of U2 at all, but I love ADD's U2 Cover CD.

i'm listening to a playlist of a bunch of random Hanoi Rocks songs. japanese neo-classic rock is pretty sick. ok i just spit that term out of my ass so if anyone knows a better classification for Hanoi Rocks, let me know. i've heard them called punk, rock & roll, soft rock, southern rock and all kinds of other stuff but i think neo-classic is a pretty fitting term.

Burzum - Ea, Lord of the Depths

I was wondering where you could buy Burzum records and not accidently  support some sick neo-nazi organisation? Or should I just download it instead?
Title: What are you listening to (and discuss it).
Post by: KharBevNor on 11 Jun 2006, 04:21
In this day and age, just download. It's possible to get Burzum merchandise without supporting Neo-Nazis, but my understanding is that most of the distribution of Burzum is now owned by Resistance Records. I'm not quite sure about Misanthropy though. Make sure you don't get anything via Cympophane or Unholy Records though.

Actually, just download.

oh yes, there is a difference. first, finsternis is quite a bit more intense than dunkelheit, as in "not only dark, but really dark" and finsternis is much more sinister a word than dunkelheit, which tends to be a more neutral and objective description of one's environment.
i hope i could help.

This is exactly what the last Beck album should've sounded like. Good to see they're turning down the operatics before they turn into a parody of themselve. Fuck know what it's all about- looking at the title- maybe a soundgarden tribute?

The new Muse CD is indeed very sexy. Can't wait to hear a properly mastered version.

I love bands who're perpetually stuck in the 80s. And also bands who make gay synthpop. So this is a pretty good record in my books.

YES YES YES,
I am on edge waiting for Tweedles.

I've been really pysched for RoC as well, but I'm torchered by the fact that the special release with all the fancy bells and whisles is using that goofy "burn it yourself" method, because my audio engineering professor tells me burned albums only last year or two at most.. But I suppose I can just keep it on my hard drive and just keep on reburning it with new CDs.
But yes, when I finally get piad, that sucker is mine (as well as the Cube E boxset)

Also the new Joan of Arc! I like it, but I wanted more...joan of arcy joan of arc. I think it sounds like more of a side project.

well, i guess these days it is a side-project.
i kind of thought the same when i heard it but then i realised. this band is renowned for doing the absolute opposite of what we expect.
after "joa, dc, mt" and the "guitar duets" album this is pretty much not where i expected them to go. i suppose now their 'loud band' is make believe.

there is a definite groove to these songs though. you just have to position your speakers in the right place.

IMO, this is the EELS song that, if you love it, you are truly an EELS fan. I say this because nearly every person ever who casually listens to them has never heard this song, while it happens to be one of the best EELS songs ever at all.

PS Kai, if they come near you on this tour (No Strings Attached, heh), see them. It is epicly loud sonic ear rape. And they do a bomb ass cover of Jesus Gonna Be Here.

Fort Minor's "Where'd You Go" is on TV right now.

I didn't anticipate this, but I like it a little. Maudlin and kinda melodramatic it may be, but it also has expresses a legitimate sentiment and has a decent hook. Basically it's mix CD fodder for someone you miss, guys.

EDIT: He just said "when you come back I won't be here" so maybe that won't work. Still a decent song though.

Khar: there was very little discussion in the old thread.  I mean, I saw one or two people talking about the music with each other, sure, but the majority of what I saw of the thread consisted of people listing what they were listening to and leaving.  When a thread looks like it could have been automatically posted to randomly by a Winamp/iTunes plugin I don't really see the point.

This time around, however, it's lookin' good.

Kai: I think I have one Freezepop album (Fancy Ultra-fresh), but it wasn't as good as I thought it would be.  I previously heard the fansong they did for Achewood (Here comes a very special boy) and really liked it, so I was all kinds of puzzled as to why the album let me down.

I'm listening to Warning by Freestylers.  I've set up this cool "Surprise me" set in iTunes.  It gives me music that I haven't listened to in the last month, minus certain things like songs under a minute and over 10 mins, and minus certain keywords that are mostly comedy or spoken word artists.  I feed that source list into the "Party Shuffle" and as a result I get to listen to some stuff that I wouldn't normally choose.   I have a lot of stuff that I haven't listened to properly, so it is good to get it thrown at me randomly.

I really should give The Greatest and her backcatalog a listen, after some tries I ended up adoring You Are Free. There is no excuse really, since my little brother has it all on his pc. A perfect pirate he is, now if he'd just stop downloading all that hardcore/screamo/emo shite...

Amber - The More You Get Into It

Like Low without guitar and vocal harmonies, this is danish slowcore for you (http://www.myspace.com/amberbanddk) and it is quite good :)
Steve Albini produced their debut and John Parish is producing parts of the new one with Albini doing the mastering, so they keep pretty prominent company.

Early Cure for the win, Kai.

I'm listening to the new Peaches album Impeach My Bush. It's good, dirty fun. Sample lyric (from 'Tent in Your Pants'): "I see something in your pants that can't be real/ Don't hold back baby tell me what's the deal?/ I gotta move in closer and cop a feel/ Oh my you've got something with mass appeal".

Also "Hurts so good I got a soregasm".

I should really get some Bauhaus one of these days. Hopefully the crappy stores near where I live stock it (I think I've seen some Bauhaus there, but I'm not positive).

Anyway, I don't listen to music when I'm on the computer most of the time, so I'll mostly use this for when I get back from listening to something if you guys don't mind.

So, I just finished listening to: Television's Little Johnny Jewel, and that bonus instrumental that comes with the Marquee Moon reissue (I believe the liner notes refer to it as "A Mi Amore"); Black Sabbath's first album; and the Stooges' Fun House, and I'll now comment on each of them (hopefully) briefly.

The Television songs are basically what I listen to when I don't want to hear Marquee Moon in its entirety. That's not to marginalize them or anything, because they both fucking rock. I particularly love the instrumental that takes up the middle portion of Little Johnny Jewel, and the other's just awesome all the way through.

The Black Sabbath album is actually my first encounter with them. I'd had the album for a while, but never actually listened to it until now. My first impression is mostly good; I'm a sucker for Black Sabbath's kind of lyrics, first of all, though since I tend to miss lyrics a lot, especially when hearing a song for the first time, I didn't hear all of them by a long shot. I really didn't like Ozzy's vocals at first, but I found myself liking them more later on. I'm not sure whether I just got used to them or whether I just didn't like his delivery on the title track. As for the music, I don't have much to say about it, but I liked it for the most part. I also suspect I may not have been playing it quite loud enough (though usually that's not a problem for me).

As for Fun House, I can't say much that hasn't been said before, but it's an incredible album. 1970 is also my favorite song by anyone currently. That live fragment of it from the same year is also great; I only wish the entire concert were available.

Jolie Holland: Catalpa.

Near where I live there's a bar called the Glitch Bar.  On Sunday afternoons at the Glitch they have a thing which has variously been called "My Top Five Songs", "Five of My Favourite Songs", and "Loungeroom Fancies."  This involves two to three local musicians, comedians, or other indie-scene luminaries playing five of their favourite songs and talking humourously about each one and its place in their life.  A couple of Sundays ago a fine local muso by the name of Martin Martini (http://www.martinmartini.com) played a song, "the Littlest Birds", by Jolie Holland, from her debut album.  Just about everybody who listened to it vowed to go out and buy the album, if they didn't already own it.  I was one of that group, and I bought that album, and I am quite loving it.  I note also that Ms. Holland will shortly be supporting Augie March on their tour.  An enticing proposition!

Currently listening to: Pawn Shoppe Heart.  I was pondering the irony of the Von Bondies' progression from Garage to Art/Noise between Lack of Communication and Pawn Shoppe Heart matching a similar progression in the White Stripes' sound, culminating in Get Behind Me Satan.

Indeed they are. I really haven't listened to the alternate versions that much, but when I did I either didn't hear much difference or I disliked the changes I did hear. I would've preferred to hear more unreleased tracks (if there are more) or live performances. Speaking of which, I got The Blow-Up a couple days ago, but haven't listened to it yet. That should happen pretty soon.

I'm listening to http://WOXY.com and I'm not sure whether or not this is old news, but if you haven't tried it before you really should 'cause it's awesome. It's an independent radio station out of the Cincinnati area that got sold and shut down for a while, and then was reborn with an internet-only broadcast. And they play good good stuff. You can also listen to it on iTunes radio, it's under alt/modern rock. I sound like a spammer, probably. Sorry.

Since the track Warsaw - Warsaw doesn't exist, and it's in the Joy Division style, I would call it a Joy Division song.

Ian Dury and the Blockheads - There Ain't Half Been Some Clever Bastards

Noel Coward was a charmer.
As a writer he was drama.
Velvet, jackets and pyjamas,
The gay divorce and other dramas.

There ain't half been some clever bastards
(Lucky bleeders, lucky bleeders)
There ain't half been some clever bas-tards.

Van Gough did some eyeball pleasers.
He must have been a pencil squeezer.
He didn't do the Mona Lisa,
That was an Italian geezer.

There ain't half been some clever bastards
(Lucky bleeders, lucky bleeders)
There ain't half been some clever bas-tards.

Einstein can't be classed as witless.
He claimed atoms were the littlest.
When you did a bit of splittemness,
Frighten everybody shitless.

There ain't half been some clever bastards.
Probably got help from their mum
(who had help from her mum).
There ain't half been some clever bastards.
Now that we've had some,
let's hope that there's lots more to come.

There ain't half been some clever bastards
(Lucky bleeders, lucky bleeders)
There ain't half been some clever bas-tards.

Okey-dokey!
Oh!
Segovia.
Da-laa la-laa da-daa da-lee
De dump di dump de dump-dump-diddle lum-lee.

Strangely more so among rock fans than dance heads.  Spasticus Autisticus is one of those big Ibiza hits of yesteryear, back when that meant something that was a bit weird in a club setting...  On the first volume of the Disco Not Disco compilations.

Edit: I'm listening to the untitled closing track on the new Icy Demons album, Tears of A Clone.  A homemade keyboard plays the 'Chariots of Fire' theme before a single bass guitar note is plucked and a really leaden beat starts plodding away.  Then there's this weird chant "I can't find my pizza / Goddamn I'm heavy / I can't see my penis / Where the hell is Lisa? / Dreaming 'bout the cheese steaks / That they got in Philly / But I'm in Chicago / Goddamn I'm hungry" ... and on it goes... what the fuck is going on?  Makes me laugh out loud, so that's all good.

Skade - Ved det Sorte Kapel(At the Black Chapel)

This is my little hobby noise/ambient project. First thing I did was to think of a decent name and ended up with Skade which means a number of things. First it means injury but also more general, a car can have a skade for example as well as a certain species of birds. The ones that are attract to shiny things but whose english name temporarily escapes me. It is also the Danish name of a jætte(troll) in nordic mythology, who married Njord, god of the sea and stuff, but was unhappy. Because she prefered in the mountains where she came from, sort of like that babylonian queen. This particular "song"(soundscape is probably more apt) consists of a bell which is actually me hitting on a lamp with a screwdriver and then slowing it down muchly.
Then I have vocals in latin, saying "save me God" and machinegun fire from a tank as well as moaning courtesy of yours truly.
I am trying to convince myself that it could be worse ;)

It seems the release of Weird Al's new album is being held up because of issues with one of the artists whose song is to be featured. On a completely unrelated note, this single from the upcoming album is available to download from his site (http://www.weirdal.com/), for free.

Regina Spektor, off of Rhapsody, based on suggestions elsewhere on this forum.  I'm impressed.  On the one hand, it's adult contemporary.  On the other, she has a robust jazz singer's voice, and does a creditable Billie Holiday on Lady.  Good work music!

Sonic Youth - Sonic Youth/Teenage Riot


So I finally got around to checking out Sonic Youth and downloaded Daydream Nation. I'm expecting something pretty neat, if the first track is any indication.


Daydream Nation had some good songs, but I don't think it's especially great as an album. I thought that much of its material just bogged it down, especially later on.

Well, the fact that they'd only get through 3 songs doesn't discourage me. I'm more worried about whether they put on a good show or not. It doesn't matter much. I'll probably end up going anyways, since it's not often anybody comes through Kansas.

And Rockets Fall on Rocket Falls is ace.

Ace enough that I just started listening to it.



At what point did Pop Will Eat Itself become shit, exactly? I have two albums, although I haven't listened to them much ( I have This Is the Day...This Is the Hour...This Is This! and The Looks or the Lifestyle).

Proud Scum - "Suicide II", from a compilation of obscure late '70s NZ punk called Hate Your Neighbours.

It begins with a spoken word description of the birth of one John Atrocity, who apparently had "the biggest pair of ears anyone had ever seen". Apparently John grows up to join a band called Proud Scum, but then leaves it six months afterwards and hurls himself off Grafton Bridge. Any Aucklanders would know that this isn't a fall you'd be likely to walk away from.

Anyway, the lyrics sort of degenerate to basically "you've got big ears, hurry up and kill yourself, John". It's funny, in a mean sort of way.

I'm listening to "Stop If You Think You've Heard This One Before", from the Smiths' final album, Strangeways, Here We Come.

I came to the album expecting a disappointing, scattered effort, knowing the tensions within the band at the time. But I've been pleasantly surprised to find a cohesive, interesting piece of work, and based on what I've heard so far, I'd certainly call it equal in quality to the The Queen Is Dead, if not better. I can definitely see how "Death of a Disco Dancer" influenced Thom Yorke and co, for example.

Jim O'Rourke - I'm Happy, and I'm Singing, and a 1,2,3,4

Simply a fantastic album, anyone who likes IDM or ambient should be interested. Its calm and meditative/repetive even though there is hell of a lot going on. I didn't particularly like him in Sonic Youth(I guess I am stuck in the 80's regarding them) but damn is he wonderful on his own!
And I'm Singing is especially a great track, it is also the shortest here, I'm Happy is 11 min. and  and a 1,2,3,4 is some 20 min. long.
I have to go find more of his stuff really :)
Title: What are you listening to (and discuss it).
Post by: nuisance on 18 Jun 2006, 03:03
That's the only album he's done like that.  You could try the Fenn'O'Berg releases, I guess, but they're not quite the same.  They're collobations between him, (Christian) Fennesz and MEGO label boss Pita (Peter Rehberg).  Not too shabby.

Actually, have you heard Fennesz?  'I'm Happy and I'm Singing and 1, 2, 3, 4' came out the same year as his 'Endless Summer' and both are excellent examples of how people identified as guitarists can make fucking awesome electronic music.  Fennesz is quite big with indie/rock nerrrrds because his music has steadily incorporated more and more traditional ideas (like, you know, rhythm and harmony ;)).

I'm listening to Gramm's 'Personal Rock'.  One of my favourite albums and a real turning point for me when I heard it in 99.  Some kind of half-way point between the soft and packed-with-noises ambience of Eno's 'Ambient 4: On Land' and house.  Combined my interests in dance music and listening elecrtonica in a way I couldn't really imagine being this ... deep.  I've been following the producer pretty religiously ever since - his name's Jan Jelinek (http://www.discogs.com/artist/Jan+Jelinek).

Yeah, Ulrich Schnauss is really big in the (tiny) world of "indietronica".  That's basically quiet electronic music that's mining similar moods / musical themes to 90s shoegazer stuff and wandering post-rock (Godspeed et al), but doing it with computers instead of a band.  It's kinda mopey and tries to pull on the heart strings, always gets called "cinematic" and shit. :)  Maybe this decade's version of what 4AD was doing in the 80s?

I did a wee search for the line-up of that festival, haven't heard of most of the artists.  I'd still probably check out all the links on the myspace page and go anyway, because by its nature this kind of music is pretty anonymous!  It's not like soft instrumental stuff gets massive airplay anywhere.

Plaid are very highly regarded, really distinctive, highly melodic stuff coming from a dance background.  They've been at it for yaers and still going strong, which is usually a good sign.  Their stuff is still "electronica", for sure (I mean DJs won't play it in a club or anything) but it's very beat-based and lively, as well as having all the interweaving melodies.  Very fiddly and baroque at times, it usually works out. ;)

.tape. is really nice, IMO.  Good nice, I mean. :)  He has an EP on Observatory Online that's free for download, so I won't bother describing what he's up to.

I think those are the only 3 names I've heard!

FWIW, some of my favourite music in this kind of vein is coming out of Copenhagen...  I like these guys in their various permutations: http://www.systemf3.com  I think they've all released records on the same label as Schnauss.  I'm in Japan, there's whole racks of this kind of thing available in even the big chain stores.  (= I'm in heaven ;))

Edit: Ulrich Schnauss has a track on this free compilation, Intelligent Toys 2 (http://www.sutemos.net/en/player;gid,8), which is a little more beat-y than most of his, but is pretty indicative.  Those synths are too clean and sparkly for me.

Gåte - Bruremarsj frå Jämtland

Their awesome singer doesn't really do anything except hum quietly and loudly without any of the usual old norwegian that no-one understands.
Take the title of this song. The only thing I know is that "Bruremarsj" whatever or whoever that is, comes from Jämtland, which is an area in Norway.

Sabbat - Horned is the Hunter

Absolute fucking brilliance. From the atmospheric intro to the succession of crushing riffs and classic Walkyier verbiage, just perfection.

"Alone he sits -
a vanquished Lord upon an oaken throne,
presiding o'er this conflict
that chills him to the bone,
for each tarnished blade that festers
is a thorn thrust in his side,
and His pain alone bears witness
to the folly of mankind.

What hope for a king with no kingdom to rule?
now his children desert him -
regard him a fool,
and are bonded to progress -
the plough and the scythe -
that lay waste and leave barren
what beauty survives
though legends of power and glory suffice -
for these 'latter-day-heroes'
who live out their lives,
chained by conformity shackled by greed -
and told to believe they don't want to be freed."

Currently, I'm just finishing up an advance of Frontline Assembly's new album, Artificial Soldier.  It's amazing.  Best album they've made since Implode.  Super aggressive and really dense, after the disappointingly Delerium-esque Civilization.  And, And!  They've got guest vocals from Jean-Luc De Meyer of F242 and Eskil Simonsson from Covenant.

Okay, and on the switch now, the Modcom remix of VNV Nation's Chrome.  Excellent remix, maybe my favourite, though the Bolloxed mix is better than the LP version as well.

Bad Wizard - Wizard of Shackles

OK, so apparently "Bad Wizard" is so named because it's what "Budweiser" sounds like when you're hammered AND blazed out of your head.  But then they made a SONG with the word "Wizard" in the title, and it's pretty much the exact opposite of every other song on this album ("#1 Tonight!").  The others are all short (3:09 tops), fast, hard-rockin' bar anthems with names like "Turn It Up (Turn Me On)" and "Six to Mid-Nite Man" but then the album closes out with this long (7:18), heavy, swirly, repetitive instrumental behemoth that sounds more like Queens of the Stone Age on too much opium.  It's like going through an entire album sitting in the back of a beat-up red pickup throwing back cases of PBR, and then getting abducted by aliens at the end.

Black metal and bad production are often associated, so is it ironic or not that Emperor's productions actually tend to be pretty clear and everything? I mean, sure, they're one of BM's biggest names, if not THE biggest, so it would make sense that they could afford it, but what unspoken tenets are they breaking? Anywway, with all of the random air-raid siren yells thrown in here, I guess this is what you would call "Black Power Metal". I have a dream of creating my own Black Power Metal band one day, and we will be called X-Malcom.

Rin' - 飛鳥 - 02 - 美貌の国

It's a Japanese trio I recently discovered when browsing my local music store's international music section.  They mix traditional Japanese instrumentation with electronica... a mixture of trance/club (I can never tell the difference between those two,) downtempo, and right now (03 - The Clash) it's a cool little jazz piece.

I'd reccomend this to anyone who likes electronica, but the album is a tad expensive to buy new... 2950円 on the back... about $27 IIRC plus shipping.  I bought mine for $15 used, and suprisingly, it's on iTunes US for $9.99.

Edit... oops, for those who can't read Japanese, that track is:

This is odd, because the vocals are nicely done and Efrim doesn't sing like a dying donkey anymore.

Post by: KharBevNor on 29 Jun 2006, 02:21
When I first listened to it I was quite impressed by Devils Steed, but the more  I listen to it, the more I think it may be their best album ever. It's certainly the best album of 2005. I suppose it is, basically, a fusion of two of my favourite Sol Invictus albums (I see it as Death of the West meets In A Garden Green) with both the folky rawness, and the ethereal intensity.

And because I had to listen to it talking about it.

Sol Invictus - There Did Three Knights Come From the West

"Oh I wish I was on yonder stile...
There I would sit and bleed a while..."

The Devil Steed is my second favorite Sol Invictus album, right after The Hill Of Crosses.
THOC is one of those albums that just grabs you after the first 30 seconds of Chime The Day. Brilliant.

After a few listens, I have to say that I really like this album. Totally going to pick it up the minute its out.

I Don't Mind - The Decemberists. Off their 5 Songs [EP].

Not only does it have one of my favorite lyrics in any song ("And you don't know why you got all dolled up for a suicide.") but it also has that amazing, possibly a flute, duet after every chorus.

(Just for reference, one of my other favorite lyrics is from the same CD. My Mother Was a Chinese Trapeze Artist - The Decemberists. "...Who deserted his rank, to follow his dreams, and start up a punk rock band in South Carolina./ I get letters sometimes, they bought a plantation. She weeds the tobacco, he offends the nation.")

Since none of the Skyclad fans ever took me seriously on my search for the truth, I went to I-Tunes to see for myself and downloaded and listened to "Think Back and Lie of England" which... is such an awesome song title and play on words I had to try it out.

Is this metal? If so, I may have been wrong about not liking metal. The lyrics are awesome, and the music never really comes even close to noise. The driving beat is just so catchy. I must admit this song without the lyrics sounds like boss music for a videogame in some parts, but that's actually kinda cool. The guitar work is fantastic. Consider me sold.

Think Back and Lie of England is more metal than your mum. Fact. Skyclad were never really constrained by the boundaries of metal though, and in their later works they pay more heed to influences like Thin Lizzy, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep and Blue Oyster Cult

And yes, that song is something nearing the peak of Martin Walkyier wordplay:

"Cruel Brittania ruled the waves,
Empire oiled by toiling slaves,
White flag stains St. George Cross red,
and blues sung for the countless dead!
God save brave Johnny Company
Stiff upper-lipped he sipped his tea
Atop a mound of babes he'd killed
to keep our nations coffers filled!"

The fact is, Walkyier is just an incredible lyricist. It's not just the allusions, and the wordplay, though it is that, it's that he uses every device of lyrical poetry available when most people are content with simple rhymes or half-rhymes. Martin breaks out the alliteration, the meter, the internal rhymes, everything. Brilliant stuff. And I mean...the mans flow. The only way I can describe it. It's like Swinbourne reciting Crowley dosed on speed, especially on the earlier albums. I cannot express how much I love Skyclad. I mean, it's not just the wordplay either, as you've noticed. They have brilliant guitar and fiddle work as well. And you're right...it is actually very catchy at times.

And now, because you've got me onto 'em again you git...

Skyclad - Polkageist!

"One day whilst out exploring,
In some far-flung foreign corner,
I took respite from journey,
To admire the local fauna
When from the twilight distance,
A peal of bells and laughter,
Sent my heart strings fluttering,
Like bats through chapel rafters!
On entering a clearing
I did sense impending peril,
Beheld a gypsy wench,
With flashing eyes bright, sharp and feral
She smiled at me so sweetly
(Bit a lip that smacked of danger)
And gave a look fit to disarm
This poor unwilling stranger!"

Built To Spill - 'Goin' Against Your Mind'

This is the first track on the new BTS album and it's one of the best on the disc. It's a real slow builder, but it has a fairly quick tempo and still packs a lot of punch all the way through. There's a couple of gnarly spiralling solos, and the vocal melody is very simple but striking. I love it.

See it's super dissapointing because supposedly, after C2B3, his next project was going to be getting the original Primus back together for at least 2 more albums and a world tour, but that didn't happened. Instead he made an album that sounds like the worst of his shitty childish side. It is just bass wankery and "whacky" instruments. He is trying to be avant garde. This is not a thing you do.

Speaking of which, who's excited about the upcoming Estradasphere album?

Black Sabbath - Iron Man

"I AM IRON MAN!"

No your not...I am!..er... sorry u_u.

That was the first Black Sabbath song i'd heard, and hooked me straight into them.

I'm listening to Iron Maidens 'The Trooper'.

A great song for me; I recently found out that a cover i had under 'Children Of Bodom', was by another band, Sentenced... Damn the (most loveable and cutesy) internet; One persons mistake and failure to check propagates through thousands of people.
I never thought it was what i'd expect bodom to do in covering a song like that, but it was covered so well i thought they might have played more thrash like for that song...

^ If you haven't heard it already and can find it, you should try and track down a live cover that Dream Theater did of The Trooper with Brucie on vocals. Quite fantastic. I know it's floating around in the p2p wasteland somewhere because I accidentally downloaded it a couple of years ago.

Angtoria - God has a plan for us all.

This is Sarah Jezebel Deva's band (you know ... that BIG lady that sings behind Cradle Of Filth (and a whole host of other bands)). Since I'm a CoF junky, let's face the ugly truth, I had to have this too. And I like it. Nothing like CoF, far more Gothicky. I'd recommend it to you if you like goticky things with a bunch of keyboards and some orchestral stuff thrown in. It works.

Plus, I was sort afraid that if I didn't buy it the frontlady of the band would come and beat me up.


She also shared lead soprano with Martina Hornbacher on Therion's Vovin, which is one of my favorite albums, she has a great voice.

About heroin, apparently. I don't do heroin. But I like the song, because it masks heroin dependency as a relationship dependency, and I dig that. Also, Trainspotting is an awesome film, and Lou Reed was hot for someone who's a bit of a transvestite. A bit like Billy Joe Armstrong, except an artist.

Wowsome song, especially the bit where he just repeats 'child stars' over and over and over again. And over.

Cradle of Filth - All Hope in Eclipse

The only band I turn my audioscrobbler plugin off for, because every couple of months I just have to binge.

Gods this band is so fun! I still know the words to every single song they ever did before Damnation and a Day, which is when they got boring. I totally wish they were obscure so I could enjoy them as guilt-free pseudo-bm cheese, like I enjoy Cryptic Wintermoon and Illnath.

I just love Dani's approach to lyrics writing.

"A thousand nights once succoured Me
In the shadow of Miss Anne Thropy
Sat gargoyle-limbed amid My licking flame

A cruel tongue at work in Her secret vaults
Sent Rebellion's embers into revolt
The comming of extinction
Synched to whimpers of my name...

Legion I arose, a flood of inhumanity
An acid reign to purify the world
The Asp at Pharaoh's breast
The Atom split under duress
A sniper at the gates of spattered pearl

My heart, torn apart, left a rifled grave...
Save for an unfurled flag of hate
To enthral a mindless zombie race!"

Letting this kind of shit loose on impressionable young teens is the lyrical equivalent of killing an ant with a Bren gun.

Cradle of Filth - Death Magick For Adepts

Yeah, Mis, the way I look at it is, there's nothing actually wrong with (old) Cradle of Filth, it's just that everyone comes at it from the wrong angle. Their crappy fans put a damnable light on them. They're not meant to be serious. I like to use a horror movie analogy. If something like Judas Iscariot or Xasthur or Horna is Suspiria or Last House on the Left or Zombi or Evil Dead or something, then Cradle of Filth is like, Hammer Horror, or maybe even Troma. It's just fun! Of course it's not black metal, it's camp, it's a joke, it's a lark.

I just turn the plug-in off because I've already got plenty of other embarrasing shit on my last.fm profile. Hell, Cradle themselves are at about  200.

Yeah. I totally agree, CoF should be taken as a joke. It makes listening to them so much better. The problam is their fans that take CoF and Themselfs way too seriously. And thus making me feel guilty every time I listen to CoF and crack a smile.
But to tell you the truth? I miss the old-school 17-18 year old goths that writes shitty poetry, likes CoF and claim that they're Wicca (you know, back when there were much less of them, and that most of them realised that goth should be taken more lightly). It was so much better then today's Emo.

You mean me three years ago?

Yeah, I know what you mean. I know exactly what you fucking mean. It struck me whilst I was on my binge earlier that hardly anyone actually likes Cradle of Filth any more. Like, their fanbase actually evaporated over a year. All the younger kids are into immeasurably worse shit, even compared to Cradles newer, blander efforts. I remember when I was looking up the ridiculous long words from Cradle in a dictionary, and writing my own risible imitations of Cradle lyrics, and spending most of my time improving my make-up and reading anything with vampires in it. Yeah, people make fun of teenygoths, but they are so, so, so much better than emos. Besides which, sometimes they turn into real goths, like, well, me I suppose. I don't claim to be a goth, but you get caught in the old bind from Life of Brian*: real goths are never supposed to call themselves goth. I'm certainly the gothest person I know in meatspace under the age of 25.

Anyway, I'm currently drinking strong black coffee to the tune of:

Nah, Nymphetamine is the biggest heap of commercialised whatsit ever. And yes, it is possible for them to get more commercial. Nymphetamine plays to every trend that was current in metal at the time: radio friendly symphonic metal single, two guitarists, toned down lyrics, even some very metalcorey riffs in places. I found it dissapointing and unamusing.

Sol Invictus - The Silver Swan

"The Silver Swan, who living had no note,
When death approached, unlocked her silent throat.
She leant her breast, against the leeward shore,
She sung her first and last, and then she sang no more."

German prog from 1975, and boy, does it show. This record has basically everything you'd expect it to: analogue synths, extended instrumental passages and an almost disco feel to it at points. Not that a little retro is necessarily a bad thing, hehe.

It's just sad when you go to a concert and see loads of idiot emo kids. The only concert I was at this year that had a relatively low number of emos and other retards was Opeth's concert in April. There were only a few dozens, out of the 1000+ people that showed up.

I'm listening to a set by OzVolt, the keyboard player of Litttershpich and Vultures. He posted a group of genius set lists in an Israeli noise forum last year. I just remmemberd I still have them and started listening to them again.

I'm listening to the first one which consist of the following tracks:

Folkstorm - Propaganda
Miranda Sex Garden - A Fairytale About Slavery
Einsturzende Neubauten - Armenia
Jarabo - The Body Loved
Lou Reed and John Cale - Open House
Ministry – Grace
Venetian Snares - Befriend a childkiller
Weena morioch - LD50
Noisesex - Yellow Smoke
Diamanda Galas - Let Us Praise the Masters of Slow Death [Live]
Marilyn Manson - Antichrist Superstar Track 99
Cranes - Watersong
Purcell - The Fairy Queen - Act 2. Prelude
Beafcake – Soak (Mirror)
Bjork - Come to me (Unplugged)
SPK – Slogun
Bile – Celebrity

This set list was actually what I had in mind when I made the first CD of the QC mixtapes.

Ween are insane. In a good way, but they're completely batshit loco. And Chocolate & Cheese is probably one of the best albums to prove this theory.
Oh, and they're also excellent songwriters.

Sufjan Stevens - Pittsfield

Just got "The Avalance: Outtakes and Extras from the Illinois Album" today.
This song is absolutely AMAZING. I love this album. It's got three different versions of "Chicago" and each one is somehow masterfully different and distinct from the next. Great album. Buy it when you can.

Elliott Smith- Pretty (Ugly Before)

Such a pretty song, that's the easiest way to put it. From a basement... was easily his best orchestrated album (even though it had alot of not-so memorable songs for me) it's just an album I can listen to and get goosebumps, and this is one of my favorite songs from it.

The Smashing Pumpkins- Stand inside your love.

It's that little song for the sappy little romantic inside you.  I knew this girl once, I think she's gone now, but sometime's you never really know.  This song has this habit of making me think about her.  It's kind of sad really but in a way it could have been worse.  I mean, I knew her and that has to count for something.  I really need to start sleeping more, not sleeping isn't doing me any favors in the department of emotional control.  

On a higher note, their planning another album.  They haven't set a release date yet, but it seems that they decided to start recording this summer.  So I'll be looking forward to it.

Songs I've played the most according to iTunes:

**All of the bands mentioned here can be found in Wikipedia, if you want more information.  You just have to tag (band) onto the end of Bauhaus and Sol Invictus.  I'm not a music reviewer, so I just ask that, if you want, download the songs below (there's a link at the bottom), and keep an open mind.**

Of the Wand and the Moon: In a Robe of Fire
In a robe of fire - so arcane
Fierce and beautiful - in solstice reign
Lost in winters weave - in woods so cold
This world have lost its soul - don't you know, don't you know
Unleash the winds - and bought in awe
When the twilight falls - upon us all
In a robe of fire - so arcane
My black flamed sun - my six fold flame


Of the wand is a danish neo-folk artist who works with several others to create his music.  In a Robe of Fire is off their fourth album.  It's very mellow, with the sound of flames crackling in the back.  Heavy on the stringed instruments.  Kim Larsen has a very deep, calming voice.

Bahaus:  Who Killed Mr. Moonlight
Consider the green lakes
And the idiocy of clocks.
Someone shot nostalgia in the back
Someone shot our innocence
And all our colours have run.


Peter Murphy is a god.  Pure and simple.  His voice, the music they put together with the lyrics.  The song starts out with very simple piano, and then adds a lone sax.  Very minor in tone, but lovely nonetheless.

Sol Invictus: In Days to Come
And in the days, oh, to come
The sound of iron and the sound of drums
And in the days, oh, to come
The earth shall see, and the clouds will bleed
And in the days, oh, to come
Will we drown in a sea of scum?
And in the days, oh, to come
A man spews out a bastard sun.


Sol Invictus is a militant neofolk band from England.  It is fronted by Tony Wakeford, who broke off from a different neofolk band, Death in June (also on my playlist) to study, and then he got back into music and formed this band.  The story of the name can be found in Wikipedia.

The song is, as should be expected from a militant band, very measured.  It holds the same background througout the verse, a steady beat of drums with quitar.  The chorus is accompanied by a lighter string and guitar.  His voice isn't all that wonderful, but the song is nice enough.


Obviously, I'm stuck on a neofolk/neo classical phase with a little bit of gothic rock thrown in there.  What can I say?  I'm under a lot of stress, and it relaxes me.

So I was going to upload these songs for you, but the Bauhaus one won't upload, so instead you get the other two, and my favorite Death in June song.

The only Current 93 song i have is Sadness song....and his voice and mannerism in that just reminds me of storytime at the local library.  Just the random ephasis on words and the sugary-sweet tone that he uses rubs me wrong.

This album really does sound like it could be the soundtrack to the musical Brecht and Kurt Weil would write if Weil was reincarnated as an lesbian folksinger from Estonia who recently emigrated to Marin County, and Brecht as a vicious show-tune queen from New York who’s just been dumped by his lover of 40 years who ran away to Sedona with a 19-year old Italian model named Carlo.

I'm currently heavily getting into Blood Axis. Also, Ostara, Die Natalis, Darkwood, Forseti, The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud, Fire+Ice, Hekate and Argine, all to lesser or greater extents. I need more Gae Bolg and Changes, but the shit is hard to get.

In a Robe of Fire is my favourite :Of The Wand And The Moon: song as well, followed closely by Here's to Misery off the same album. Have you heard the alternate version from the I Crave For You EP? It's quite different, but quite nice, with a more standard DI6 style guitar backing. Am I the only person who thinks that :Of The Wand And The Moon: is pretty blatant Rose Clouds of Holocaust-era DI6 worship btw?

And thanks for reminding me I still need to get hold of In The Rain.

Yeah, you've wandered into a nest of half-crazed neo-folk enthusiasts here son. Stay, we have crumpets.

Blood Axis - Reign I Forever (Gospel of Inhumanity version)

This is a fucking powerful track. I love the hopeless imagery of eternal war:

"Force rules the world still
Has ruled it, shall rule it;
Meekness is weakness
Strength is triumphant
Over the whole earth

Still is it Thor's-Day!

I am the God Thor
I am the War God
Here in my Northlands
My fastness and fortress

Reign I forever!
Reign I forever!
Reign I forever!
Forlorn forever..."

I've been feverishly drawing something off this for the past couple of days. Would be finished now but I'm out of yellow and black ink, and nearly out of red.

Gives you some idea what I'm cooking up, lol.

Also, it's fucking killing me, what's the name of the piece of music that Reign I forever samples? I know I have it on vinyl somewhere, but I can't remember what it's fucking called...I thought it might be Mars from the Planets but I'm pretty sure it's not.

Also, asked friend who got me into the genre your question.  His answer:  Reign I Forever is based on the 'Montagues and Capulets' theme from Act 1 of Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet.

Area - With Louise

This is not the 70's Italian progressive rock/fusion/avant-garde band of the same name that we all know and love, but an 90's Illinois band who I guess I would classify as dream pop, at least from this song. Sounds strongly influenced by the Cocteau Twins, but less overtly trippy, and with a guitar chord progression straight out of a 50's ballad for a chorus.

Well that's where the pseudo-musical part comes in.
I don't play an instrument(yeah I know I am going about it all wrong...), so I just bang on everything within reach. My equipment consists of my computer and a shoddy headset. Right now I manipulate all sorts of sounds in Audacity, which is a rather simplistic program.
It is quite rough and amateurish for now but everything has to start somewhere. I figure if I want anything worthwhile I should move on to more advanced programs like Fruity Loops or something.

I'd suggest you try AudioMulch (http://www.audiomulch.com/). I think its probably one of the best electronic music software out there. It has pretty much all you need, but working with other softwares together with it would probably be best.
Audacity is a great sofware too. Combining to two would probably be awsome.

Headed north on Mills Avenue,

There is no such thing as under-diluted lemonade.  Poorly proportioned, perhaps, but more lemon flavor is almost invariably better.

On the electronic music software note, I find Rebirth (http://www.rebirthmuseum.com/) to be tremendously entertaining.  The sequencer blows (I much prefer the FruityLoops one, which is bumpin'), but the sound will make any acid fan wet his pants.

The Fall - Grotesque (After the Gramme) - "How I Wrote Elastic Man"

The first time I heard this song (about a week ago), I was struck with the funniest sensation of déjà entendu. For some reason the chorus sounds really, really familiar. Can anyone recall what I might be thinking of?

And am I the only one who could swear Mark E. Smith is actually saying "How I Wrote Plastic Man"?

Ulver - Blinded by Blood

As far as I can discern this is a song for Garm's son(?). What is interesting is that it is a bit on the newage side and has a soul vocal sample ala Moby in it. Which is the complete opposite of the racket that is Christmas just before it. There is a good deal of contrast on Blood Inside.

Add N to {x} - The Sound of Accelerating Concrete

Just picked up the album "On The Wires Of Our Nerves" for dirt cheap (yaay used at Rasputin) and I'm damn impressed.  Add N to
  • sounds a lot cooler when they're rocking out and doing awesome experimental Moog-dickery instead of electroclash-with-vocoders.  Not that the latter would *necessarily* be a bad idea.  But nontheless.  Twisted and atmospheric electronic seen through the sepia-tone of vintage synthesizers.
Sounds like this may be worth checking out. I own "avant hard" & "loud like nature"-i like them, but would much prefer the vintage synth dickery lol. I'm listening to


Xiu Xiu-I luv the valley, oh


I have to admit I wasn't fond of xiu xiu at first listen, but after hearing this, I was sold.....probably one of the darkest songs of the human condition, in which jamie stewart reveals he will only rest when he is dead, yet knows he could never bring himself to commit suicide. the vocals are so visceral, as is his declaration of love for misery & depression as means of escape from dealing with tragedy. Not exactly easy listening, but sometimes we need to be reminded that life doesn't always work itself out to a perfect resolution.

The Top Hat Carriers -  Live in Beit Shemesh
One of my favorite Israeli rock bands. Realesed one album and a "collection" CD with bootlags and different versions of songs. Too bad nobody knows them, I used to listen to them all the time last year, and me and two good friends of mine would allways make references to them and nobody would get us. We have a sad highschool.
Actually, this is'nt a live song. Its just called Live in Beit Shemesh. It had the most insane video clip ever.

Yep I have cut, given it a lot of reverb/echo and extented the wail at the end. It sounds kind of cool if you ask me, probably immensely illegal.

Uh, I'm listening to "The Art of a Soft Landing" by Antimatter.

This song is like a blanket of Zen tranquility wrapped around an emocore hand grenade.  It starts out so innocuously, massaging your earballs with rose-scented baby oil, and then right at the end -- poof -- drops you off a cliff into a pit of gothy, distorted power chords.  Top it off with a bit of primal screaming, and you have yourself a genuwhine angsty testament to -- whoops, wait ... the power chords are gone, and now we fade out with a NIN-style piano arpeggio ...

It sounds like I don't like this song.  That's just my mood talking -- the fact is, I LOVE this song, and almost everything else on their Lights Out album.  But it's like 3:36 in the morning, and I'm cranky from insomnia.

Wait till I talk about Assemblage 23 or Android Lust.  I love those guys, but they REALLY piss me off sometimes.  Ah, the love-hate relationship between artist and know-it-all fanboy.

I have difficulty making my mind up about Pink.  While she has a great voice and has the ability to jump between genres and deliver a wide variety of music, I tend to feel that she specifically writes music to be popular.  Especially in the new album, all of the choruses are predictably catchy and cookie-cutter pop.  However, there are some great moments, such as the beginnings of Fingers and U & Ur Hand, which could almost be compared to Peaches

Ah! Thanks for that, i hadnt heard it and i'm glad i have now. Now im not sure where to organise it to ... Neither Maiden nor Dream theatre .. I guess it goes in the big 'mixed artists' folder that i tend not to listen to due to its invariance lol.
..I dont know why (maybe hannelore does >_< ) But i HAVE to have a very nicely organised folder system ... It stems from becoming too used to aligning my C++ code...Its such a messy language that i dont dare to think how long i spend cleaning and judging the cleanliness of code. But i just have to do it .. And now i have to do it with everything *aligns pieces of paper parallel to walls*.


Listening to Megadeth - Mechanix (2002 version).
...I've a friend who insists Megadeth are better than Metallica because the great (early) years of Metallica were the growth of Mustains influence while in the band ,using The four Horseman from their first album (a down-tempo'd version of Mechanix with a soft bit added in the middle and the words changed) as his example lol.

Vintersorg sings in Borknagar - not Arcturus, the new Arcturus Vocalist is Simen Hestanes, from Dimmu Borgir.

Garm left after the Sham Mirrors (my favorite Arcturus album). He does guest vocals on Ishahn's album "The Advesary" which came out about 2 months ago,  I'm trying to track down a copy at the moment. From all accounts I've heard its an excellent cd.

Yeah ICS Vortex is a psedonynm, it's a play on the name Garm used to use "Fiery G Maelstrom"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simen_Hestn%C3%A6s

Most of the big Norwegian "Prog" bands are fairly incestous, Ulver, Arcturus, Borknagar, Vintersorg and Spiral Architect have all had members swapping around at some stage, though each of the bands sounds are pretty distinct now.

If I had to pick a favorite it would be hard but at the moment I'd say Vintersorg, as much as I love Ulver, "Visions From The Spiral Generator" and "The Focusing Blur" are damn amazing albums.

Limbonic Art - Deathtrip to A Mirage Asylum.

In Abhorrence Dimentia is a really great album, maybe not quite as good as Moon in the Scorpio but damn close.

Aside from being just a kickass song, and having that quintessential 80s bass synth dundun-dundun rhythm that gets me oh so hot, it has a really good bridge figure that the first time you hear the song just blasts out of nowhere and makes you go "ooer" or something similarly endowed with vowels.

Try to pick up a couple of samplers. You can find easily find some great comilations.
A couple of names that I can think of right now; Muddy Waters, Lightning Hopkins, John Lee Hooker (early recordings), Ronnie Earl (great too), Jimi Hendrix (controversial yes but...), The Black Keys ( their label 'Fat Possum records' has an impeccable reputation by the way) and of course Robert Johnson.

OT

John Hiatt.

He's not cool or hip but I've got a soft spot for him. He's just a great songwriter, a great singer and a fantastic guitar player.

Bathory - Hammerheart

So far the Bathory album I like best and I am not afraid to say that it is because of the production. The production on the ones that came before this one prevented me from actually enjoying the music because it was so incredibly bad. It would be wrong to say Quorthon has(or rather had) a strong voice but nevertheless I prefer it to his sick bm croaking.

Though I remember you laughing at it toward the beginning of the Forced Listening Thread, you should probably try out Ancient Rites if you're really getting in to Hammerheart. I suggest Dim Carcosa, maybe my number one album of all time.

I'm currently on a little nostalgia trip, so it's

Right now, I'm listening to Destroyer's Your Blues. The only misstep on the album is the ugly trumpety synth at the end of Notorious Lightning ("...until someone goes free"), but the rest of the song, as well as the entire album is so breathtaking that I'm just going to forget about it.

I used to hate synths. I feel stupid now.

Orbital, live at Glastonbury, doing the Doctor Who Techno Theme.

amazing. I saw this once, and the fact that the tune is so closely linked with my childhood just made it even more amazing. chills down my spine and dancing like a loon. linking being terrified as a child behind the sofa to being so happy and uplifted dancing with my friends.

it uses some cool dialogue samples from the classic series too:

"These? Instruments. These are for controlling our flight."
"Flight?"
"Yes, you see we travel around in here through time and space!"
"Ha ha!"
"Oh no no no! Don't laugh, it's true."

I am listening to "Sing a Song of Song" by the C-Sus Jazz Singers.

http://s11.quicksharing.com/v/2997305/01_Sing_a_Song_of_Song.mp3.html

It is, IMO, what modern Jazz is MADE of. This version was re-composed from an old instrumental jazz bit by Kerry Marsh for a 6+ part vocal group. What makes the song so amazing for any jazz musician (vocal or instrumental) isn't the "chorus," (which is pretty simple and repeats just enough to be effective instead of annoying), but that is gives a musician so much room to just take the song and run with it. The song is as complex, basic, bright, moody, etc. etc. as the artist wants. You can always recognize the song when you hear it played/sung by different musicians, but it will never sounds the same.

This version just happens to be ridiculously complex as far as vocal jazz goes...There's just so much depth to it. Note : Listen particularly intently at the 4:00 minute mark and/or turn it up. If you can't at least appreciate it, you don't know what music is.
No, seriously.

I'm not really sure how I should feel about this album.  While it is undoubtedly beautiful, the lyrics are a bit cheesy and emo.  However, apparently they are autobiographical, so it's not like it's depressing for the sake of being depressing.

Aren't they krautrockworshippers? I have heard good things about Electrelane. Even Saint Etienne namedrops them on Finisterre, the lines goes: "I believe that music in the long run can straighten out most things. There are too many bands that act lame, sound tame.

Dräp En Hund(Kill A Dog) - Be Yourself

Swedish girl(as in 13 year olds) punkers who have heard way too much early PJ Harvey.
It's fantastic! they actually sound ominous, I mean one look at the cover and you'd think this would be happy-go-lightly.
And they thank Kim Gordon in the liner notes. I think I have just been out-indied!

If I hadn't won it, I would never listened to it. I was actually a bit disappointed when I found out. I was thinking "damn I finally win something and then it's this crap". Well I was wrong, wonderfully vividly wrong. Of course I am not saying that this is anything other than obscuro. Perhaps akin to an riot grrly Shaggs who can play, but it is great all the same.

GG Allin - Dead Flowers (The Rolling Stones cover)

I have to discussion this, right? It's from his Troubled Troubador EP, which was originally all acoustic stuff, but was rereleased with some of his phone conversations from prison, as well as this live cover. This is probably the only GG Allin album you could sort-of enjoy without buying into the gimmick.

Slint - Good Morning, Captain



so sad.

This is my favourite song right now.

Also, Zaarin, the Able Tasmans were a pretty awesome band, but I think you'll find that the name of the song in question is 'Hold Me 1' not 'Home Me 1'. Even so, great song!
Title: What are you listening to (and discuss it).
Post by: Zaarin on 07 Aug 2006, 20:35
Ah, yes, I often thought that calling it "Home Me 1" made no sense. iTunes imported it from the Flying Nun compilation as that, hence my confusion. There's another song of theirs on the CD, "What Was That Thing?", which is also spectacular.

As for what I'm listening to now, it's "Cut Your Hair" by Pavement. I just picked up luxuriant double CD plus booklet Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain: LA's Desert Origins from JB Hi Fi. Not at all bad for $30. I actually also picked up Wire's Pink Flag, Chairs Missing and 154 all in a box together for the same price at the same place. Delicious.

Anyway, I've never really listened to great deal of Pavement before, and I'm enjoying it so far. I'm glad I picked it up, and I'm going to go for that deluxe Slanted and Enchanted next time I'm at the mall.

Queensrÿche - Anarchy X.

Great beginning for one of the best concept albums ever. If you turn it up load enough you can catch fragments of Dr X's speach, which is pretty cool.

A friend of mine used to have a Operation Mindcrime cartoon thing on video, not sure if it was done by the band or somebody else but it was damn cool.

I'm feeling horribly out of place here, but I'm currently listening to the most recent Front Line Assembly album, Artificial Soldier. And I find it vaguely ironic that they now sound like... well, just about every other Industrial band out there, just with more of a tendancy towards Gibson references, and fans are praising them for "setting a new standard in the genre with this one".

I really couldn't blame you. FLA is, moreso than most bands, not for everyone. In fact, I've really yet to find someone who likes their entire catalogue. Everyone seems to have a favorite era for them - their earlier stuff is better, in my opinion.

That said, remixes and covers of their stuff seem to generally be more acessable, to most people.

From what little I've heard, Murderdolls > Wednesday 13, depite my roommate's protests to it being the other way around.

As for current music, I'm switching to the second CD I bought today, now that I've listened to Artificial Soldier a few times and decided that it's not really for me. This is another industrial selection; Cannibal Anthems by :Wumpscut:. And, from what the opening track and the stuff from the EP before this sound like, I'm thrilled with it so far. It seems like he's going back to his previous, more energetic sound - and given the mixed reactions that the last CD got, I think I can see why.

His solo shit has a lot of weak songs, but there's some good stuff. He's better when he sticks to the formula he's long established, with tracks like God is a Lie, Bad Things and Look What The Bats Dragged In. There's also a feeling that he's got a bit more serious on Transylvania 90210, which doesn't fit his musical style or image at all. All of the stuff Wednesday 13's done might as well be the same band though. I personally prefer the Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13: half of the Murderdolls songs actually are just redone FDGFP13 songs. All of it's fun music though.

Talking about it, I'm on a W13 megamix now. The Murderdolls - Dressed to Depress.

Magma - Malawelekaahm

I've heard that this album is also considered a Christian Vander solo album, but it had most of the Magma crew from that period. The album, Wurdah Itah, is the soundtrack to a movie called Tristan et Iseult...if only this were the soundtrack to the more recent version that was made... Anyway, Magma is the founding band of a genre known as Zeuhl, which is a pretty idiosyncratic subgenre of prog-rock, and includes some Magma spinoff bands as well as more recent bands such as Ruins and The Flying Luttenbachers. Of course, the more recent bands have a much more stripped down timbral pallette and are much more concerned with overall violence/wackiness, whereas the original sound is much more heavily orchestrated. Trademarks of the genre include minimalist-derived developmental repetition, compound time signatures, a strong jazz influence (sometimes bordering on free jazz), a strong operatic classical influence (less present in instrumental examples of the genre) and a strong emphasis on bass/drum interplay, sometimes utilizing two bassists.

Shellac - Prayer To God

My favourite Shellac song, and possibly the angriest song I've ever heard.
Title: What are you listening to (and discuss it).
Post by: Praeserpium Machinarum on 12 Aug 2006, 15:19
I always felt that the song was more sweet and sour, it has humour and he is really more hopeless and sad than angry. For example he asks God to do it because he can't. He is powerless to act, to intervene and he chooses to fantasize instead. I realise that this is not "cool" but what Shellac I have heard is not purely about anger, it is nuanced and that's what makes it great. The way I see it anyway.

Dungen - Panda

Oh I do regret not getting into them sooner, this is such a great song.

I got the re-release of Sebadoh - III. I think it'll be a "grower" since it's not much like their later albums (Harmacy and the like). The bonus disc includes a 11 minute track that's nothing but show introductions.
The album was originally released in the same month as Pavement - Slanted and Enchanted, as well as Nirvana - Nevermind.

Until now, I didn't realize that, live and without the gasmask on for voice distortion, he really sounds like he's about fifteen years old. Which, as you might imagine, kind of takes the edge of the music. Actually, it kind of adds some much needed humor.

Three cds have been dominating my changer lately.  

Unter Null's The Failure Epiphany - just freaking insane how good this is.  It's rare that harsh ebm or anything that resembles terror ebm has a point or is inventive, but this is.

Psyclon Nine's INRI - for my mad-on moments.  Really intense album and a lot of fun.  They're new one, from what I've heard, called Crwn the Frnicatr, looks to be excellent as well.

Angelspit's Krankhaus - I really didn't care much for their first EP, but this release is excellent.  Angry and funny and really balls out.

To Khar:
If you want to get into FLA, people will tell you to start with Tactical Neural Implant, which many consider to be their classic album(and it is a great one).  I personally think they're doing more diverse things now, more challenging things.  The synth on anything post Millenium is just so dense and layered, often with so many different things going on at once.  They've also incorporated a lot of the sounds found in the side-projects like Delerium, Noise Unit and Conjur One into the mix with these later releases.  The latest is no exception.  Artificial Soldier is very, very good.  Also, if you like your FLA angry, check out Decree.  Another side project, but with more of a harsh, metal-ish bent to it.
Title: What are you listening to (and discuss it).
Post by: KharBevNor on 14 Aug 2006, 22:38
I'll take that into mind. Thanks for reminding me I still have to buy Krankhaus btw. I really like Angelspit because they sent me a free copy of their first EP and some badges because I drew them fan art. The flipside was I had to work on promoting them to people I knew, moderately tough as almost none of my friends are the kind of people who would appreciate them.

You know, I'm the only one in my local group of friends who actually thinks Unter Null's any good. That said, I found the album to be quite possibly one of the most rewarding purchases I've made in the past month (the other being Cannibal Anthem).

Current music? Life Cried's "Drawn + Quartered" album. Friend burned me a copy, and I think I need to go out and buy the damn thing now. I am impressed. Then again, most every band on United vol. 1's been great, so far.

In other news, I finally registered. Whee!

Pink Floyd - The Gunner's Dream.
The Final Cut is really a love-it-or-hate-it album. I can see why some would hate it. It is NOT a Pink Floyd album, really. It even said on the original packaging: "The Final Cut, by Roger Waters, performed by Pink Floyd." It uses orchestral music a bit too much, it focuses far more on lyrics than music, and if you don't focus on it the lyrics won't make any sense.
And I love it.

Beyond this beautiful horizon
Lies a dream for you and I
This tranquil scene is still unbroken by the rumors in the sky
But there's a storm closing in
Voices crying on the wind
This serenade is growing colder breaks my soul that tries to sing
And there's so many, many thoughts
When I try to go to sleep
But with you I start to feel a sort of temporary peace...

Well, Shadows Collide With People is only one I have heard of his but it is damned good. If you want something more avantgarde and dark, I'm told the double album Niandra LaDes and Usually Just a T-Shirt is good. Though he later admitted that those and Smile From the Streets You Hold was pretty much made to get drug money. When he cleaned up he became a workaholic and released a flurry of albums where To Record Only Water for Ten Days is for the lo-fi people. SCWP is more produced but still raw and has these off-beat "synth noise" tracks that goes with the otherworldly feel his music has. It is miles from RHCP territory and much better in my opinion. Also John is a surprisingly good vocalist, his voice cracks and strains and he alternates to a falsetto frequently. It hasn't been destroyed by his rough life but rather it has been shaped or "refined" by it. Not unlike Tom Waits in a way but without any resemblance of course.

Still listening to Shadows Collide With People, it is quite long.

Datarock are really good as long as you don't think about them too hard. I love that CD.


Yarr. It's growing on me. The second half seems more interesting than the overly clicky and beepy first half.

Currently listening: The Raconteurs cover of Gnarl's Barklay's 'Crazy'. It's well good. I was more than a bit disapointed with the Raconteurs album, but they seem funner live...

Yeah, not sure about this album.  I bought it on the strength of 'Apologies' and the fact I obsessed over both the Dntel and Postal Service albums for at least a year a piece.  But really his singing is a bit awful from time to time, lyrically it can be quite annoying (particularly that opening song about phone texting), and his points of inspiration (Kompakt records style German techno) are a lot more fun than most of this.  IMO.

'Apologies' does rule though.. I love how the rrow rrow bass sound has been growling away through different genres for years and is somehow still not played out... and the simplicity of it compared to some of the other tracks is a real virtue.  In fact I have to listen to it right now!

Kristeen Young - Goddamn You, You Scenesters

I saw her open for Morrisey a couple months ago, and thought she was really interesting to listen to. Anyway, I got home, googled her, misspelt her name "Christine" and found, well... you google Christine Young if you really want to know. Anyway, I was browsing through a.b.sounds.mp3.indie the other day, saw her album "X" for download, guessed it was the same person, and downloaded it. She's not quite as I thought she was going to be, and is slightly more generic punk-band-with-female-lead-singer than I'd excepected, but she's still a frightfully good listen. Plus, her drummer is outrageously gae, which is always a plus.

Right now I myself am listening to the absolutely MARVELOUS album "The Satellite Years" by hopesfall.  It's one of those bands - Envy is another - that managed to make music with screamed vocals in it beautiful...there's some extremely delicate guitar work hidden if you listen close enough...too bad the last album they did turned them into shite...

In the hour when the night falls
Voices from the dark side are calling my name
Slowly fading to the world where I belong
Ebony rising, I close my eyes
Flashing pictures of an old remembrance passing by
On obsidian wings I fly, leave the gates behind
Through the colonnades of eternity

Post by: KharBevNor on 30 Aug 2006, 23:28
I'd probably listen to them in chronological order. 'The Age of Cataclysm' first, then 'A Coming Storm', then 'Of Shadows...and the Dark Things You Fear'. There's not really much between them overall, but each one has quite a different overall feel to it, despite the fact that they have a very definite style, and quite a narrow lyrical focus (Apocalypse, Medieval Satanism, Death, Mechanised Warfare and combinations thereof). I do enjoy a good bit of the old melodic BM myself, but no-one on quite the same level as these guys. The strange thing about them is that they sound somewhat generic, but not really like anyone else: they have a dash of old-school MDM to them, and an almost impeccable restraint as far as the use of keyboards go (overuse of keyboards and Dani Filth vocals are the two things that most often sink Melodic BM bands). They're also pretty admirable for having a female member and not making her sing.

Actually, speaking of overuse of keyboards and Dani Filth vocals, have you ever heard Illnath?

Illnath - Cast Into Fields of Evil Pleasure

The best description of these guys was provided by a friend of mine "Hey, it's kind of like Cradle of Filth, but it's more guitar driven and doesn't suck balls"

Oh man, now I'm on a kick of cheesy melodic bm. I'm gonna have to listen to Vlad Tepes' whole discography or something to atone for this, but it's soooo gooooood.

Is there any logical reason why the video for this song is all clips from the pacific theatre of World War Two?

You like the Dulli? Mis, I love you.

I listened to that album this afternoon. That is absolutely the best album I've heard all year.

As for what I'm listening to:
Bob Dylan - Workingman's Blues #2

Wonderful song. Probably the best on the new album. One of the few Dylan songs where the music is as important as the words.

Actually, the only reason I wanted to go to that concert was because Mark Lanegan was going to go on stage with them (he did about 5 songs with the singers last night), so I thought I should listen to the singers before I decide. I got Powder Burns and after I listened to it there was no question about going.

Dulli is a pretty nice guy, I heard that he hung out with some people and even sang the pixis' Wave of Mutiliation with some girl. Lanegan looked like he was going to kill himself after the show.

Wäldchengarten - Distractions

Maybe I am not as hardcore as I thought. I start singing when I am listening to this. I am not as much bored as I am utterly creeped out by their barren soundscapes of electricity, it sounds so alien and inhuman.

Just downloaded the free stuff on their site, cos this sounded up my alley.  Listening to their live set, pretty devastating.  Surprised it's all electronic - I mean, there's very little harmonic action to speak of, but I had the image of guitars being shaken and amps rattling and stuff...

As far I know one of them is a guitarist and they do use manipulated squeals and wails from guitars. Once in an interview one of them explained that the best use a guitar he had owned for 8 years ever served was when he drilled a hole in it and recorded the sounds.

Sounds like fun, I was into doing that kind of thing for a while - a friend and I had a kind of bedroom noise project going when we were teens.  Well, project sounds too organised, we were just kids making noises - classic noise cliches like tapes of ranting preachers, Eastern European singing, mixed up with making noises by doing stuff like pointing remote controls at guitar pick ups, sticking rulers between the strings and slapping them, etc.

Actually, I do agree here, but I would suggest starting with Bringing It All Back Home. Not only is it one of his finest works, but it's split in half between his acoustic music and his electric music, so you get to see both sides of him and decide which side (or maybe both) are for you.

Nico - Das Lied Der Deutschen

I first heard this song yesterday and I have listened to little else since.
It's magnificent. As far as I am concerned she seems much better on her own than with Velvet Underground.
Quite frankly I thought her deadpan vocals on VUAN were ghastly.

Nicos solo stuff is great, and highly respected in certain circles. I've got an issue of Zero Tolerance, for example, which has a three page spread on her lifes work. The same issue had a quickfire interview with Geezer Butler someone had done in a pub, a huge article on Der Bluthsarch, a report on one of their correspondents who'd pursuaded Sepultura to go to a Soulfly gig with him, and an interview with the director of Legalize Murder. Awesome mag.

I'm currently listening to Earl Haggard - Okie From Muskogee, because I'm trying to write a parody of it, though I am not convinced it isn't already at least half in jest itself, especially given one of the other tracks on the album appears to be about doing rails of coke.

I have all of Alabama 3 (or A3 in America)'s stuff thanks to a friend, and I'm just listening through a few albums and bootlegs at the moment. This is some pretty good stuff. This song's long, repetitive and sublime, and considering it's just after 'You Don't Dance to Techno', a live version, it just sums up their eclecticness.

You may note that I am in total awe of these guys at the moment.

No. I mean, 'Black Sabbath' by 'Black Sabbath' is pretty much an intro track for the entire genre, as in it's the first song on the first truly metal album and musically and thematically, it fits the bill. The opening riff has been described as the sound of the gates of hell opening.

I mean, other genres have theme songs, but not like this, and not genres this big.

You've got no other Björk?  I'd say probably 'Homogenic', and then if you want to keep going, 'Post'.

Listening to a Ben Gibbard / Andrew Kenny EP I picked up a while back.  I can't stomach listening to even half a Death Cab For Cutie album, likewise find American Analog Set pretty boring, but I love their frontmen as songwriters, so 4 short acoustic songs from each keeps me happy.

Right now I'm listening to The Fiery Furnaces ~ Blueberry Boat.

I think this album was also recommended on this site. I'm a little disappointed in the album. There are a couple of good songs, but overall, this album makes me feel like I am in a bagged salad commercial.

Darkthrone-A Blaze in the Northern Sky
-The snooty girl who rents the upper half of the house I'm living in is having a party because there's an american football game at my uni tomorrow and they're being loud and drinking crud-lite. After downing two bottles of dogfishhead IPA and a bottle of touis pistoles dark ale this is the perfect way to show my displeasure whilst enjoying myself.

It's a sort of concept album with a circus theme. I picked it up last week and I've pretty much been listening to it since. One of the few albums that I can listen to all the way through without wanting to skip a song. I will say that "The Revisionist" is my favorite song off the album.

Listening to dEUS - Via

Got into this band when I was staying in a hostel in Belgium - someone suggested some local music and I gave this band a go.  I don't love all of it, but some songs have stuck through the years.  This song seemed somehow better for, rather than diminished by, the blatant referencing of REM's Low.

Oops, now listening to Atom™'s fucking excellent remix of Emiliana Torrini's Sunny Road.  Classic indie "folk" dullness made awesome by making it sound like an audio stream suffering from drop outs and buffering artefacts in perfect time with the song.  The mix of explicitly digital madness with the acoustic guitar and beatless arrangement is just awesome.

Oops, sorry, I forgot we're not supposed to discuss things... ;)

I am listening to the Ditty Bops self-titled. This is some of the funnest music I have ever heard. It is kind of like Jodie Phillis found a treasure chest full of fun, cloned herself and decided to kick out the jams

There are a few generically bland folk-pop songs in there, but there is certainly nothing I would describe as "mediocre", and they are easily outweighed by superp pieces of music like "Ooh La La". The opening guitar riff for that song is freaking SUPERB. Plus, all the vocal lines, even in the one or two songs I am not overly impressed by, are so insanely beautiful sounding that it is hard to stay mad at them. Wait, I wasn't even mad! I was grinning and tapping my feet!

The name does not betray the sheer level of ditty bopping I am doing while listening to their music.

If you are a country western fan of any stripe, you owe it to yourself to listen to Don Walser.  He played and sang in the tradition of old-fashioned shitkickin', dirt raisin', 80 proof ear scorching steel guitar cowboy music.  HHe yodels.  He opened for Buddy Holly before Buddy Holly left Texas.  He didn't release his first album until 1994 when he retired from the national guard at age 60.  He was from Austin, which gave him an unusual following of country music fans, alternative music fans, and punk fans.  He was a funny guy too.

He passed away at the age of 72 last week, from complications of diabetes.

Next I'm gonna listen too Lyle Lovett's If I Had a Boat which is a bit of an anthem to me.

to hear you speak of it
I'd have done anything
I would do anything
I feel like a cartoon brick wall
to hear you speak of it
you've been so sad
it makes me worry
why not smile?
you've been sad for a while.
why not smile?

You Am I - 'Purple Sneakers'. Classic Aussie song by a classic Aussie band thats given its name to one of our biggest local indie discos. Its the first track on a mix for my girlfriend, who i did not meet at Purple Sneakers...
fun lyrics too:
" We'll have to hide 'til no one is around
'cause there ain't no room in the city today
For explanations that you just can't say
Found out what shame can mean
In purple sneakers and grey jeans"

Now i'm onto a Ramones cover of Dylan's My Back Pages. i downloaded heaps of Ramones MP3s from a blog somewhere, and its a fun cover... and since my gal and i try to outdo each other for covers, its on the mix too

John Lennon - Working Class Hero

I love this song so much.

...did Alan Jackson do a cover of that song? 'Cause if it's the same song, I have the Alan Jackson version of it. Speaking of which:

"Midnight in Montgomery" - Alan Jackson

Same album, the song haunts the shit out of me. And one time when he was playing it live in Montgomery (I think it was Montgomery, anyway) the lights all went out. Creepy as all hell.

Moby - Go (Trentemoller Mix)

Original track was released in 1991, making it 15 years old.  Heard in a variety of places over the years.  It always reminds me of the good old days of Trance, back before Guidos killed the scene here in Toronto.  Back when I was young, and I could party till 11am, no problems.  Ah, youth.  *wistful sigh*

Yes, I do like Ben Folds, now shut up about it.
I won't shut up about it, because I also heart Ben Folds.

I am about to sound horrifically out of place.  Due to its mainstream subject matter, what I am about to say will likely get me lynched, if what I've read so far is sufficiently indicative of the local tastes here:

I'm listening to the new BNL album, Barenaked Ladies Are Me.  I'm very fond of it, I even liked it on the first listen, and I rarely like anything the first time I hear it.  It's a very melodic album, much more so than previous collections, and while nothing on the disc strikes me as especially catchy (the disappointing Everything to Everyone had several extremely catchy songs, despite being an overall below average BNL album), something about it just makes it stick to me like moist stuffing.  One thing that I really love about this album is the fact that there isn't a single song on it that I genuinely don't like.  Even Stunt, which is supposed to be their best album, has one or two songs that I usually skip.

Commence lynching.

Burial's self-titled debut. I love, love, love the sounds and where he's coming from with this recording. I'm hoping the next album released by Hyperdub, Kode 9 + Spaceace's "Memories of the Future" at least matches it in the quality department.

This interview (http://blackdownsoundboy.blogspot.com/2006_03_01_blackdownsoundboy_archive.html#114298266029581805) with Burial and Martin Clark (aka Blackdown) is very enlightening about the artist, for those who tried listening to this album before due to Pitchfork's high rating and guses of love, but didn't understand what was going on.

I think I'm gonna listen to some dub mixes next, then go to bed.

Now I'm listening to Rhythm & Sound - With The Artists.

Rhythm & Sound are a German duo who started with making some of the best techno ever as Basic Channel (they even get a mention in LCD Soundsystem's Losing My Edge). Over the years though, their sound got so minimal and spaced out that what they essentially had were dub riddims. On this album they invited deejays (vocalists of the reggae/dub styles) to sing. the collection is excellent.

Killing Joke – “Majestic”

In a total 180 from the conspiratorial paranoia of KJ’s last album, Hosannas from the Basements of Hell is largely uplifting anthems.  On top of a pounding rhythm section and guitar distortion that fills every available frequency range, Jaz exhorts how the secret to happiness is hidden in plain sight:

You cannot tell the people / Though some of us have guessed it
Every day’s a blessing / I feel the best yet…
Majestic!

The first Gorillaz with Dan The Automator, or the second Gorillaz with Danger Mouse?

Tonight, I'm listening to the No New York compilation. My particular copy is a Russian import, as it was reissued by Universal Music Russia. This seems odd to me since most sites are claiming that the only reissue you can currently find is from Japan. It also sucks that the linear notes are completely in Russian, with no English translation. In the meantime though, the music is ridiculously awesome.

Did you download this?  I'm wondering if it's The Breeders' version miss-tagged.

To be honest, I've been listening to me recently!  Soppy shit (http://www.orbitfiles.com/download/id937561137) with a friend singing & playing acoustic.  Vox-wise I hear a bit of Mark Hollis, for my part I guess soppy electronica and a couple of arrangement ideas nicked from the Eternal Sunshine soundtrack.
Title: Re: What are you listening to (and discuss it).
Post by: Ernest on 09 Oct 2006, 21:05
It may be the Breeders mistagged.  My friend just burned me a CD with 24 Pixies songs on it, but he may have put a Breeders song on there.  And yeah, he did download them.

And to the other dude who said something to me, I know there are better drummers than Jon Theodore (not many, but there are), but I just love his style.  I wonder if the band will continue with that style now that he's gone.  I listened to their early stuff with Blake Flemming, and the drumming is more straightforward.  That's not necessarily a bad thing, but the style Theodore brought to the band made them unique.  I mean, who could have thought of the beat for Cicatriz ESP?  Seriously.

This is one of those albums that remind me why I love music...the actual songs in and of themselves are already good, but then when you take the whole album, with the story underneath it all, it's just incredible.  I doubt this would be considered literally a "concept album," but I love the fact that the band takes the time to make a cohesive work of art, and not just a random collection of 10-12 songs....

Sopor Aeternus & The Ensemble of Shadows - The Goat

"There is an old goat at my window-pane,
standing upright in a frock-coat,
somewhat earth-coloured and plain.
He is starring down at me ...
and the place where i have chosen to hide ...
in the futile attempt to dissolve ...
I discovered this cell as a child.

There is a medicine-case, he calls "being",
which the goat carries under his arm.
He says, if i only allow him to enter -
I shall never come come to any harm.
He is giving quite an importance to
his frrightning and urgent concern, he says:
"I have come to be your transformer...
I'm your doctor, half goat and half man."

He says that this house will soon crumble,
and that I am going to suffer as it falls.
He says: "Let me in now and I'll be your savior...
I'm your healer ... whith hooves and horns!" "

I've been listening a lot to a free EP by (Nick) Zammuto from The Books, remixed by randoms I've never heard of. I like it, but it's really different from The Books.  Shows off some drum'n'bass influences, even!  Free download from http://www.notype.com

Free remixes for the win. I'm listening to "Silver" by Jesu, which is now officially in the running for one of the prettiest songs ever. Does everything Justin Broadrick touches turn into ear-bound gold? I mean, listen to his remix of Pelican's "Angel Tears." It's gorgeous.

Jesu are pretty okay in my books.

"The Twenty-Five Pounder" - Runrig

Take early Rush but send them to a Highland wedding to learn how to play that style of music on each of their respective instruments. Then add a set of bagpipes and a mandolin on top of that. Pretty soon, you are going to get this song.

Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds - The Curse Of Millhaven.

You must have heard about the curse of Millhaven,
How last Christmas, Bill Blakey's little boy didn't come home:
They found him the next week up in One Mile Creek,
With his head bashed in and his pockets full of stones,


From the Murder Ballads album, the song is sung from the point of view of a fourteen-year old girl named Loretta (but she prefers Lottie), who lives in Millhaven, a town plagued by a rash of murders and butchery. If you ever wanted a concrete example of the sheer macabre brilliance of Nick Cave's lyricism, this is it. A straightforward chord line that is tweaked maniacally back and forth and an eerie moaning organ underly an increasingly horrifying torrent of verses. Strongly, strongly recommended.

Its based on a Peter Straub short story. Every time i see a Peter Straub book I look for the story, but I can't find it. Perhaps the info I have is wrong.
I love that song. Its the first Nick Cave song i ever heard and its why I'm into him. Never saw him do it live though.

Found this by typing "curse millhaven straub" into google:

Heaps of info about use of specific stories in several songs, Straub and Cave's comments, etc.



And I'm listening to The Soft Pink Truth's 'Gender Studies'.  This particular track is a bit lame, I think.. chops up male R&B and hip-hop vocalists to make them say / sing things like "Take me, rape me, young girl" and "I wish I was a lady"

Faithless - One Step Too Far (feat. Dido)

The song begins slowly, with an airy synth line throbbing underneath Dido's ethereal and oh-so-slightly vocoded vocals. She crescendos, and suddenly the synth drops away into a pumping bass-line. The song vibrates and pulsates along, pulling us with it. Maxi-Jazz joins in for a verse and contributes to the chorus, and the song slowly dies away over the course of minutes. Very chilled out, very pleasant. Highly recommended if you like smooth, ambient electronica.

If the Sun or the Moon should give way to doubt,
They would immediately go out,
One swallow don't make a summer,
But tomorrow has to start somewhere...

Faithless were actually one of the bands that got me addicted to music. I went to see them last year and they kicked so much ass. I think I danced more then the people who were on Acid in that concert, somthing like 90% of the people there I believe.

"Mass Destruction" by Faithless is what turned me on to electronic-type music. It's really a stretch to relate the two, but it's got me listening to Kool Keith and his various partners and pseudonyms. I haven't got very far into any synth'd and sampled genres other than hip-hop, but I'm working on getting Geogaddi by Boards of Canada as we speak. <3 BitTorrent.

"Hole In The World" - The Eagles

All of the above having been said, I am still and always will be a total sucker for a good guitar and some amazing vocal arrangements.

Into Eternity - Out

I got their new album a few days ago from Amazon. It's very good, but I think I like Buried in Oblivion a bit better. The leads are a little less wanky, but the riffing isn't as strong. As far as the new lineup goes: the drumming is better, and their new vocalist still does the alternating clean/death vocal style as the last one, but he does the melodic clean singing a little better so it seems like they took the songwriting more in that direction. The guy has better range too; he hits almost Halford-level notes sometimes.

But overall, definitely worth picking up.

Yeah, the Batman soundtrack is pretty awful, but I think the opener, The Future is pretty decent.

Listening to Mapstation again.  There's an MP3 here (http://www.mapstation.de/specials.php) that is pretty indicative.  So quiet and static.  Sounds quite bizarre when you mix this beatless arpeggiating with reggae vocalists, as he's done from time to time.  The best tracks have a little more going on, often some thumb piano or a bit of Schneider high (and therefore melodic sounding) bass guitar lines.

Boyd Rice & Giddle Partridge - Bonnie and Clyde

I am literally addicted to this song.

http://www.myspace.com/riceandpartridge

Brilliant. 
It's not bad, but the thing I find weird about this was that they've clearly just sampled and looped the bits of the original music they needed and then re-done the vocal on top.  I think on Warm Leatherette they've remade the music, but it's reeeeeeeeeeeeeally faithful.

It is interesting to find out what the hell Bonnie and Clyde's lyrics mean in English... although I wonder how faithful the lyrics are to the French?  Do you know if any eager World Serpent afficionados have looked into it?

The first time I heard the Bonnie and Clyde music was as sampled by MC Solaar.  Then there was a really faithful (you could say, redundant) cover with Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab doing the Brigitte's part... from memory it's on their second album, but it was a "hidden track" (meh).  Anyway, I heard the Luna cover before I heard the Gainsbourg & Bardot version, so I originally thought Luna and Stereolab had decided to make a French pop song from a French hip-hop track.  :oops:  Very confused.  Fascinating, I know.   :-P

I've never heard the original (Actually, I had no idea it was a cover), but I presume they were quite faithful to the french, as it's basically a poem by Bonnie Parker that's been translated into French and they have then translated back into English, and probably edited a bit along the way:

The Trails End, by Bonnie Parker

You've read the story of Jesse James
of how he lived and died.
If you're still in need;
of something to read,
here's the story of Bonnie and Clyde.

Now Bonnie and Clyde are the Barrow gang
I'm sure you all have read.
how they rob and steal;
and those who squeal,
are usually found dying or dead.

There's lots of untruths to these write-ups;
they're not as ruthless as that.
their nature is raw;
they hate all the law,
the stool pidgeons, spotters and rats.

They call them cold-blooded killers
they say they are heartless and mean.
But I say this with pride
that I once knew Clyde,
when he was honest and upright and clean.

But the law fooled around;
kept taking him down,
and locking him up in a cell.
Till he said to me;
"I'll never be free,
so I'll meet a few of them in hell"

The road was so dimly lighted
there were no highway signs to guide.
But they made up their minds;
if all roads were blind,
they wouldn't give up till they died.

The road gets dimmer and dimmer
sometimes you can hardly see.
But it's fight man to man
and do all you can,
for they know they can never be free.

From heart-break some people have suffered
from weariness some people have died.
But take it all in all;
our troubles are small,
till we get like Bonnie and Clyde.

If a policeman is killed in Dallas
and they have no clue or guide.
If they can't find a fiend,
they just wipe their slate clean
and hang it on Bonnie and Clyde.

There's two crimes committed in America
not accredited to the Barrow mob.
They had no hand;
in the kidnap demand,
nor the Kansas City Depot job.

A newsboy once said to his buddy;
"I wish old Clyde would get jumped.
In these awfull hard times;
we'd make a few dimes,
if five or six cops would get bumped"

The police haven't got the report yet
but Clyde called me up today.
He said,"Don't start any fights;
we aren't working nights,
we're joining the NRA."

From Irving to West Dallas viaduct
is known as the Great Divide.
Where the women are kin;
and the men are men,
and they won't "stool" on Bonnie and Clyde.

If they try to act like citizens
and rent them a nice little flat.
About the third night;
they're invited to fight,
by a sub-gun's rat-tat-tat.

They don't think they're too smart or desperate
they know that the law always wins.
They've been shot at before;
but they do not ignore,
that death is the wages of sin.

Some day they'll go down together
they'll bury them side by side.
To few it'll be grief,
to the law a relief
but it's death for Bonnie and Clyde.

Sounds good, but I'm sure it will sound better on CD after it's been mastered and such than the version I'm hearing now, which is from a bootleg. Fun though.

Nargaroth - Piseo Pro Satana

My Favorite of the Nargaroth cover songs, originally by Root, this song is catchy as fuck.  It's the same riff as in the Burzum song "War" and another Bathory song, can't recall the name, guranteed to induce instant headbanging.

Is anyone familiar with the band Mew from Denmark? I really enjoy their music ever since one of my friends sent me an mp3 of their song "Why Are You Looking Grave?". Very cool, mellow mood band. :)

The Mars Volta "Day of the Baphomets". "Amputechture" has really grown on me. At first, I didn't get it but after listening a couple of times... you know the story. I seem to be the only one who thinks it is their best work yet.

I love the drum solo in that track.

It's a good record, Just doesn't have the same flow to it that Deloused does. I think the last track really lets it down. 

Tetragrammaton is a kick arse song. One of the best they've done

Orthrelm - Ov

just incredible freaky, awesome fast intense repetition of guitar riffs

live video here: http://www.millionraces.com/orthrelm.htm

some review says: nothing can prepare the listener for the all-out minimalistic assault that is OV. Over the course of its single 45-minute track, tiny riffs are repeated over and over for minutes at a time, everything moving at hyperspeed, with no rest and no break from the intensity. The first major change in theme doesn't happen until eighteen minutes into the composition, and that change is actually a ramping up of intensity rather than a break in it! Not until twenty-two minutes in do things slow down, but only for a minute or two before picking up again. In the second half, themes change with more frequency, building inexorably to what one might expect to be a spectacular conclusion, but which instead is just an abrupt stop. In the end, though, this inconclusiveness is compelling ? consistent with the circular, repetitive aesthetic of the piece

ATDI is ok, I used to enjoy them when I was in high school but there stuff hasn't aged well for me at all. I used to love Realtionship of Command, I can't stand it these days.

Mars Volta are so much better though, I don't know where to start.

The thing that struck me when I heard them was the huge 70's prog influence it had running through the sound. It was like someone had taken King Crimson, Pink Floyd and Yes and modernized them. Cedric's vocal delivery is much more restained and about 10* more enjoyable. ?They are really awesome live as well one of the best bands I've seen, if not the best.

Wow.

Destroyer - Rubies (from Destroyer's Rubies)

I've got plenty of time to write about this one before iTunes changes to the next track; about eight minutes, in fact. Probably won't use it all though. :wink:

I listened to this album for a while without really being able to make any sense of it, and then all of a sudden in the course of one listen it was like every hook on the album (and there are a lot of them) finally penetrated my consciousness. So basically I just convulsed like a gangster being riddled with bullets from a tommy gun for fifty or so minutes.

That was a few weeks ago, but Destroyer's Rubies has proven to have impressive staying power; I still want to listen to it pretty much every day and I have to force myself to try new stuff instead. It's a great, great album.

Hah, me and my friend always argue about that. She likes Sgt. Pepper and I like The White Album.

Joy Division - Transmission

Well, let me clarify. Compared to most of the stuff I listen to, BDM are fucked up and brutal. It's probably the heaviest band I listen to, even though they sound like child's play compared to, say Cattle Decapitation or something.

So, no they're not fucked up and brutal to someone who listens to a lot of extremely extreme metal, but to me, they are.

Also, I'm not exactly an expert on BM of any kind, and I've seen them described as alot of things but not BM, but that being said, to me, they are.

Blast beats? Check
Heaps of Tremolo guitar riffing? Check
Raspy higher pitched screams? Check

According to Wikipedia, they're Melodic Death Metal or Metalcore, but to mine ears they exhibit none or barely any of the marks of those genres, and are basically just labeled as such because they're a metal band who has emerged from Massachusetts in the past 5 years.

Ok here's a section from the BM FAQ http://www.blackmetal.co.uk/ForumsPro/viewtopic/t=3967.html (sorry its in a forum post, I read the intial thing years ago, probably the best written explanation of what BM is I've ever read, original website seems to be down now) maybe that will help explain things too you.)

Quote
Why is it called "black" metal?

All musical art is ideally the sum of its parts--inspiration, writing, and instrumentation--which all clearly reflect a certain intent (mindset, ideology, worldview, vision, whatever you'd like to call it) of the artist at work. With that in mind, black metal is designed with a single artistic purpose, a purpose that can flesh itself out in a fairly wide variety of ways: the opposition of Judeo-Christian ideology and its influences on society. Therefore, the "black" in "black metal" refers to the blasphemous, offensive, profane, or extreme ideological and musical tools that the bands utilize to make their points known. It refers to the negativity of the artform: black metal is negative art because it displays the innate tragedies of reality, the inevitability of death, or the perceived ugliness of the Christian world in a way so that the listener gains some catharsis from the music. Additionally, black metal doesn't simply blaspheme; to succeed, it must simultaneously append its own solution (i.e. black metal doesn't just attack Judeo-Christianity... it overthrows it.) Some prominent themes that can be found in black metal are: nihilism (the replacement of Christian morals,) bloody warfare and victory over Christianity, the apocalypse or Ragnarok, the rise of demonic or Satanic forces, anti-Christian paganism and heathenism, Nazism, and the occult.


Black metal is about the ideology it has nothing to do with aesthetics, which is why a huge number of bands from Burzum to Summoning to Darkthrone, despite the fact that they all sound different  are all grouped under the BM genre.

Wearing corpse paint and playing tremlo riffs does not make you a black metal band. Neither does being "Fucked up and Brutal". In general I would say that most Black metal bands are more melodic then DM bands.

The more I listen to the new cd, the less I like it compared to the self-titled one.  Maybe it's just me, but something about "Yes, Virginia" just seems...I don't know, I almost want to say lazy.  I hate being the guy that yells "Sellout!" as soon as a group moves to a bigger label, or gets better distribution, but it just seems like all of Amanda's fangs went away.  The songs, other than "Modern Moonlight" seem to be lacking something, there's just not the sense of urgency or intensity than made me fall in love with this band in the beginning.  Don't get me wrong, I still like the new cd, but it's a little disappointing compared to what I thought it would be.  Oh well, who am I to judge...

Anyway, back on topic, I am currently listening to The Shape Of Punk To Come by freakin' Refused...one of my top 10 albums, most likely...I can't think of anything I don't like about it.

Just to hop in on this topic of discussion. I really enjoyed the self titled cd but I have to agree that "Yes Virginia" does seem to be lacking something. I have been racking my brain as to what it was since I bought it, but I think you have hit the nail on the head with the lack of the sense of urgency.  The cd is still ok but I think it has several more skipable tracks then the self titled.  Example at least for me is the song "Sing". It just feels like it was put together halfassedly and is actually quite boring.

And as for what I am listening to: Zolof the Rock and Roll Destroyer "Crazy=Cute", sometimes a 2 minute poppy song makes the work day go faster.

Seriously, I'm not a huge fan of Worship Him or Blood Ritual, they sound boring and unispired to me, listenable but not top tier stuff. Lyrics don't even bare mentioning. Ceremony of Opposites is good probably their third best album I'd say.

When I first heard Passage I was absolutely blown away, it's fucking amazing, the atmosphere, the sound, the lyrics the band just went to a completely different level. People can bitch about the programmed drums all they like but I think they fit the sound perfectly.

Eternal is basically the next step along, has some amazing songs,

the wind of spring blows in heaven
in the land of gold in the land of god
manipulate the holiness
maculate our loneliness
shining between two worlds
learning to win and hold
fraction of monopoly
tension of opposite's pole
give or take what has to move
for I will fight for my country
Eldest to the one and I
harvest of love and light
armless - amnesty

North south east and west the cross is sent over the lands
keep draining what was and will be in our time in our life
pilot soul takes you on the ride, no rise no fall for Humankind

Among the best survive or leave
paranoid night so hard to relieve
would you betray innovation
in the name of tradition
hopeless - amnesia

North south east and west the cross is sent over the lands
keep draining what was and will be in our time in our life
pilot soul takes you on the ride, no rise no fall for Humankind

Helvetia gloria still smile behind the shade of shame
cross your faith, join your hands tomorrow holds another day
Eldest to the one and I
harvest of love and light
dictated by war and hate
supported by those who hide
it lives in your mind
whatever you may say
whoever you may pray
Christianity worldwide


Look at those lyrics, there amazing, Vorphs writing is about 100* better then Blood ritual. The whole package, the atmosphere everything it just all came together incredibly well on this album. I seriously can't wrap my head around why people can't get into there newer stuff.

I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.

Didn't notice this, but I quite agree. I've always considered one of the main differences to be the emphasis of the music: Black Metal tends to concentrate on the 'atmospheric' sections of the band: the vocals, the lead guitar work, building often quite simple but aesthetically profound riff patterns, and in some cases the keys/folk instruments/acoustic guitar/whatever. Death metal, I find, is more grounded in the rhythm section. Wicked-ass bass grooves and machine-gun tight drum patterns are what really bring me to death metal. Not to say that BM bands can't have amazing rhythm sections, but still, listen to the drumming in, say, Decapitated or Behemoth to see what I mean.

Stevie Ray Vaughan.  Namely, Pride and Joy, and his covers of Little Wing and Voodoo Child.

The man died much too young.  He will be missed... and to think, it was almost Eric Clapton in the helicopter instead of him.
The music is some seriously good stuff.  Excellent lead guitar by Mr Vaughan himself, and his band supplies some pretty good rhythm-type stuff.  Definitely worth a listen.

This a serious slight on Dungen. I mean, I really like Wolfmother, but Dungen are so much more than what Wolfmother are doing. True, they are both very retro rock acts with heavy Purple and Sabbath influence, but Dungen has so many more interesting elements to their sound, Swedish folk, jazz fusion, symphonic prog.

I bought this on a whim due to hearing Sleep and Dream on a sampler cd somewhere and it's amazing. It would be perfect chillout music if the vocalist wasn't so damn scary.


Am waiting for the new Kylesa album to arrive. If the postman does not arrive with it soon I will unleash my cats on him.

A Day Of Nights is quite the scary cd...you might also want to check out the vocalist's other band, Made Out Of Babies...I downloaded them both after seeing the write-up they both got in Decibel a couple months back, and after hearing them I felt compelled to purchase them both.

Eels - Not Ready Yet


wee Eels
I was in the record store with my friend today and made him buy Beautiful Freak. It was 12 dollars and had a wad of cash on him. It made me quite content.

Weakerthans - Aside (my all time, number one favourite Weakerthans song. It's really poppy and oddly optimistic and makes me smile tonnes.)  My three favourite lyrics from that line, in no particular order:

I'm unconsoled, I'm lonely.
I am so much better than I used to be.


Rely a bit to heavily on alcohol and irony.
Get clobbered on by courtesy, in love with love, and lousy poetry.


And I'm leaning on this broken fence between Past and Present tense.
And I'm losing all those stupid games that I swore I'd never play.
But it almost feels okay.


SUCH a great song :)

Acid Bath - New Corpse

Currently on a little Acid Bath binge. The fact that it played this right after Dead Girl is why I have so much trouble explaining to people what Acid Bath sound like. This is fucking industrial metal, complete with samples and processed vocals, that was a full-acoustic bluesy ballad. And now it's switched to the Sabbath-esque brilliance of Paegan Love Song. Perhaps the best description, given their sum of influences and styles, might be 'everything nu-metal could have been had anyone with an ounce of talent or originality been involved at any stage whatsoever'.

But they are not nu-metal whatsoever.

Oh no.

BUT FUCK ARE THEY SO GOOD.

The Bronx - ST.  I think this was a rather underrated album this year.  I still prefer their "White Drugs" debut for its rawness, and for just having a higher level of energy, but this one is great as well.  They remind me quite a bit of what I loved about Every Time I Die when "Hot Damn!" came out; just a thick layer of sneering, pissed off, sarcastic punk rock styled hardcore.

I disagree...kind of.  I was never all that impressed with their early stuff, but there's something about Shape Of Punk To Come that just blew me away when I first heard it, and I still consider it one of my top albums.  I've listened to the rereleases of their earlier material and my general reaction has been "meh" but that Shape Of Punk.. release was, in my opinion, amazing.

As for my listening habits, it's back to the standards; I've been listening to "Jane Doe" a lot lately.  Still my favorite album period.

Skyclad - Postcard From Planet Earth

"Now with hindsight I admit,
I don't admire the humans lot,
Frail bodies, fragile, ill-equipped.
Their lives are hard, but they are not.


Planet Earth: It's great to visit
It's great to visit,
But you wouldn't want to live there

And when you know the ways of men,
Then you can only pity them,
Every day a raging storm,
Cast away in a carbon-based life form.

Planet Earth: It's great to visit
It's great to visit,
But you wouldn't want to live there"

Written from the perspective of an alien marooned hopelessly on earth. Just a great concept, and a damn powerful song.

I dunno I've sort of heard Shape of Punk To Come that many times it's lost its charm. Seriously all through year 11 and 12 this was pretty much the only album I heard when I rode in my friends car (which was quite often). It was either this album of Bad Religon's "Generator". I swear he only had two cd's or something   :roll: It's still a good album for all the memories it gives me, especially track 4, 'Summer holidays vs Punk routine'.  It has that insanely catchy riff running through it.

Listener - Ozark Empire.  It's a hip-hop style concept album by this (http://www.forthelistener.com) guy, about a corporate whore who loses his job, becomes a traveling knife salesman to make money, ends up cheating on his wife, and in the end gets killed by one of his own knives (irony?)  As far as storyline goes, it's very similar to Pedro The Lion's "Control" album, but not quite as cynical.  Musically, it's pretty lo-fi, very underground as far as production goes.  It's not really straight hip-hop, more free verse spoken word set to beats, but very interesting.

I saw this guy perfom last December, and was pretty impressed.  I'd say he's worth checking out.

Yeah it has me perpelexed as well. Sometimes I almost think they are pushing an anti-racist agenda like when they sing

"The European taste for sugar cane
Tobacco in thick
Precious leafy fronds
Amenities not found in colder climates
Are sought

Above the steaming jungle
Lies snowy heights of horror
Foundations of empire are laid
On sweating backs of nigger slaves"

It's almost as if they are protesting the explotation of slaves

and then in the same song they sing

"Rampant prognathism
Reduced cranial girth
Dark children led away
Evidence of the rape
In chains"

Plus they share drummers with Grand Belial's Key and I'm pretty sure GBK are neo nationalists or whatever the word for white supremacists are.

"As Jerusalem Burns" they're first album is a bit different but still very good, less epic much more raw but still well worth a listen.

Melechesh are a really great band. If you haven't already you may want to check out Absu, Proscriptors main band, cause face it the mans a fucking awesome drummer.

Currently playing

My Dying Bride - Sear me '93

Love the atmosphere on this, perfect intro to "Turn Loose the Swans"

Nora - Dreamers and Deadmen.  This album is 3 years old, but I still like it as much as I did the first time I listened to it.  There's nothing really flashy about this band or anything, they're just really, really good "meat & potatoes" style hardcore.

Atmosphere - "Bird Songs Why The Caged I Know"

Quote
It's the bird, it must have been the bird
Disgusting critter, it must
We should have known better then to trust
This disease infested ball of lust and carnage
Piece of garbage with wings and she has the guts to sing
Get the bird, catch her shoot her, I dont care
Get the bird, bring her down to the ground from out the air
Gotta tear her apart, let me at her first
Sink her to the level of the rest of us that inherit the earth

What's she thinking? does she really believe
That shes above the creatures that work the dirt and the streets
See her up in the tree, looking down at you and me
Like she's chosen over those who walk around on two feet
The bird, the melodys she play
The music she make, rubbing our faces in the feces of the daybreak
Trying to remind us, its time to awake
Antaganizing and instigating my hate
The chirps, I turn them into screams
My feathered friends end will justity the means
Disturbed, I'll grab her by her beak
And swing her in circles untill she's too dizzy to speak

Well I'll shake her from her branch, tear apart her nest
Break her skinny legs and fry her eggs up for breakfast
(she's a snake that can fly) she's just food for the fleas
She thinks she's better then me just because she's free?
I'll shake her from her branch, tear apart her nest
Break her skinny legs and fry her eggs up for breakfast
(she's a snake that can fly) she's just food for the fleas
She thinks she's better then me just because she's free?

My beautiful bird has gone away

Their self titled album somehow gives me really strong memories of this summer hanging out at Deer Lake park. It's all flighty and cheestacular and expansive like a nice big crisp lake with lilypads all over with the most fucking bizarre semi-claustrophobic park layout (one day me and my friends got lost in the cramp wooden mountanous area for at least three hours).

Good times.

Darkthrone - Unholy Black Metal

I love the short and fast solo, sounds like an air raid siren and then it cuts to the lyrics, Nocturno Culto sounds absolutely fantastic and the echo effect on he's voice is absolutely unreal, the production on Under a Funeral Moon is amazing, one of the most evil sounding records I've heard.


"When the gates have all been opened
When the funerals never end
When satans power paints out hearts
And sadness our souls

When witches burn the priests
When the ancient ones return
When the demons ride the numb
With their hordes of dark desires"

Someone took a razor to her mask.

The balance tipped by the weight of gold.
When will it end?
When will it ever end?

The judgment man holds my fate,
As I beg forgiveness with the
Plastic smile of a candidate.

"Don, Aman" off Spiderland by Slint. Y'know, I don't really see what all the fuss is about this... It's good and all, but it is not the MUSICAL REVOLUTION that everyone makes it out to be...

Consider this; look at pretty much every post-rock act in the last 10 years.  They've probably been influenced by either Slint (in the case of bands like Mogwai, or Godspeed You! Black Emperor) or Tortoise (in the case of bands like Do Make Say Think).  It may not seem like a musical revolution now, but that's because they've had such a huge impact on so many artists.

That said, I think Slint are ten times better than many of the artists they inspired.  For me, its the emotion that is enfused in their music that sets them apart from the other bands.

wintersun's self titled debut

very power metal? orientated melodic death metal

I've always been curious how does Wintersun compare to Ensiferum, I really love their "Iron" cd. Are they similar at all.

Death - Trapped in a Corner

"Individual Though Patterns" is highly underrated IMO

i've never gotten round to ensiferum so i can't really say i can say the riffage is great, the best way to describe them is a CoB clone who can actually play decently

personally i prefer the sound of perserverance in terms of death...maybe it's just the painkiller cover though

PlayRadioPlay! - Even Fairy Tale Characters Would Be Jealous

PlayRadioPlay is just one guy, and he plays the guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and synth, does the vocals and mixes it all together. I love it when people are talented enough to do this.

The Red Chord - Clients

The idea behind this album is brilliant. The singer I guess worked for a while one summer for a clinic or something, dispensing pills to some of the homeless folk around Boston.  He developed all these characters, based on the people he encountered, and wrote the songs on the album about or inspired by them.  Also, the fact that one of the songs on the album contains the line "the penis was from heaven and it went to hell" makes it a winner in my book.

Tortoise - Crest

I've been listening to a lot of Tortoise today.  I finished Standards, and will probably make my way through the rest of It's All Around You this week, as well as TNT and Millions Now Living Will Never Die.  Before this I listened to The Mercury Program's From the Vapor of Gasoline and A Data Learn The Language.  I guess I am on a post-rock binge.

Am listening to The Gossip - Jealous Girls

I really didn't expect to like them, as I don't like funk, albeit dancey or otherwise, I really don't like gspel style soul singers, and every scenester in my hometown thinks that The Gossip are so cool that they're all trying to become chubby lesbians to be like Beth Ditto. WELL I BEAT THEM TO THAT ANYWAY.

But the point - I got the album for my job and realised that it's absolutely brilliant and haven't heard anything to rival its brilliance in months.

I still maintain that Masters of War is far angrier and more profound than almost any Grindcore track ever. The only one that definitely surpasses it is 'You Suffer' by Napalm Death, which is about half a second long and is the only micro-song I can think of that really deserves to be taken seriously, because its lyric cuts absolutely to the core of everything.

"You suffer, but why?"

I;m currently listening to:

X-Ray Spex - Oh Bondage! Up Yours!

Graham Parker-Squeezing out the Sparks.


I received this album from my unlce on my birthday last friday.? For a full week it sat on my desk and Graham was staring at me evily through his black sunglasses.? Whenever i saw the album my first thought was about wanking sparks and then Graham look coldly at me.? So i finally popped open the case with a struggle against the plastic restraining it.? I hit the play button on my computer and surprisingly i liked it pretty well.? I guess it goes to show you that just because a man looking coldy at you doesnt mean he isnt half bad.

"Drinking For 11" - Mad Caddies

How much do I love the Mad Caddies? Lots. They're kindof pop-rock-whatever? They're not afraid to go into a classic Dixieland-style and then switch to 20s ragtime and go hang out with Bob Marley and get stoned within 20 minutes, and then go into late-30s sleazy club showgirl music just to piss on your expectations even more.

I'm listening to III, the most heralded Sebadoh album, and I must say I'm rather disappointed. It lacks depth of Pavement and GBV, and despite the feud that ended Dinosaur Jr., J Mascis clearly emerges here as a more talented member of the band.

Of course, "Gimme Indie Rock" is one of the greatest kissoffs to a musical movement of all time, but this album feels pretty flat.

Boyd Rice - Total War

Although I love the guy, I really can't help but think of his entire artistic output as being something like one vast dead baby joke. It always does well to remember that, apart from the fact that Rice's music is far, far less poppy, there's really very little seperating his methods from those of Marilyn Manson. I mean, they're both oh so spooky serial killer afficionados and reverends in the church of Satan who piss around with nazi imagery and make statements about how they want to destroy Christianity.

Rice is just more of an elitist cock about it.

Isis - Merzbow EP.  I'm listening to the song "Hand Of Doom," which I believeis a Sabbath cover.  Someone wanna double-check me on that?

Yeah, it's a cover.

Why is Hand of Doom so often covered, especially by doom and sludge bands? I want to hear Electric Wizard or Sunn O))) do a sick as hell bowel discharging version of Electric Funeral or A National Acrobat. Actually, anyone know of ANY other covers of A National Acrobat except Sopor Aeternus' one (which is wierd as all fuck, though not quite as wierd as the Paranoid cover)? I probably have one somewhere in my music collection, but I can't think of anything. 

Metallica does about half  of "A National Accrobat" on Garrage inc, it's sandwiched between the start and end of Sabbra Cadabbra though, arrangement actually works pretty well imo.

At the moment I'm listening to the Matador At Fifteen compilation. The track currently going is "The Laws Have Changed" by The New Pornographers.

It's a thoroughly satisyfing comp, guys. With the exception of an 11-minute long dirge courtesy of Bardo Pond, it's almost like a superbly-flowing singles comp on the first disc (which, by the way, it is) and a well-compiled mixtape of brilliant b-sides on the second disc (which it is). The accompanying DVD has the video for the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's "She Said," making it automatically worth it, and the little booklet of in-house correspondence is an entertaining read (see the correspondence between Gerard Colsoy and Pitchfork Records near the beginning for an example).

EDIT: Now playing is "My Kind Of Soldier" by Guided By Voices, which is one of my favourite GBV songs. Damn do I love this comp.

Fucking bastards! I would fucking kill to see Deathi in june live shut up!).

Death in June - Rose Clouds of Holocaust.

...my people are idiots.

Sorry, i'm reading some really annoying articles written by some prissy fucking socialist about how evil death in june and whitehouse are. It all boils down to claiming death in junes entire aesthetic is an act to sell more records and a load of bullshit sectarianism and marxist fuckwittery. Man, I am getting to seriously fucking dislike marxists. I mean, lets be fair, its more a religion than a political standpoint (you believe in a socialist utopia and revolution despite the overwhelming evidence), and it's also fucking anti-freedom and just GRRR.

Fuck, this article is so obsessed with left/right politics! There is nothing like people who bleat on about class struggle every nine fucking seconds and then get involved in elitist sectarian pissing matches. Who cares who was a member of what when and what fucking rumours you heard from your reliable sources you idiot. Douglas Pearce is a gay ex-socialist. This wanker basically cannot distinguish any sort of individualistic philosophy from fascism. HOW THE FUCK IS ANARCHISM IN ANY FORM RELATED TO FASCISM GRR.

Haven't been here in a few days, so I'll post a few of the albums I've been listening to while enjoying my "vacation":

Deftones - Saturday Night Wrist
.  It's not quite White Pony, but I think this may be the second most beautiful thing that Chino & Co. have been responsible for.  It's like the perfect refinement of what the Deftones have always been, plus what Chino did with Team Sleep (JohnnyC, I'd like to hear your opinion on this album, by the way)

ISIS - Panopticon.  Watched the DVD and got in the mood to listen to this band.  I've listened to Oceanic a lot more than I have Panopticon, so I went with the one that hasn't gotten as much love.  I still think I like Oceanic the best out of everything they've done.

Orchid - Gatefold LP.  It's actually the cd version 'cause I'm not cool enough to have gotten into vinyl yet, but whatever.   This is some really good, really gritty and raw punk/hardcore a la Pg. 99 or City Of Caterpillar, but a little less atmospheric.  I busted it out in order to drown out the sounds of my neighbors shitty hip-hop sex soundtrack.

Sage Francis - A Healthy Distrust.  I've been listening to a lot of his older stuff recently, so I figured I'd go back to listening to the cd that got me into his music in the first place.  There are a lot of really good tracks on this one, even for someone who generally doesn't really like hip hop and rap.

and at this very moment, I am indulging my love for all things associated with Level Plane Records (http://www.level-plane.com) by listening to A Day In Black And White - My Heroes Have Always Killed Cowboys.  I guess if you had to genre-fy it, you'd call it post-hardcore - or even more ghastly, "Screamo" - but I also think that fans of Godspeed might enjoy this as well.  The singer has a vocal delivery similar to that of the guy from Ten Grand, and some of the guitar parts remind me a good bit of F#A# (infinity).

Hooray!  Long music post FTW!!!

Iron Maiden - The Longest Day

A Matter of Life and Death might not be their strongest album musically, but damn if it doesn't have some of the best lyrics they've ever written. When I heard it was a concept album, I assumed it would be a unified story like Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, rather than being a bunch of unconnected songs on a specific subject.

In the gloom, the gathering storm abates
In the ships, gimlet eyes await
The call to arms, to hammer at the gates
To blow them wide, throw evil to its fate

All summers long, the drills to build the machine
To turn man from flesh and blood to steel
From paper soldiers to bodies on the beach
From summer sands to Armageddon's reach

Overlord, your master not your god
The enemy coast dawning grey with scud
These wretched souls, puking shaking fear
To take a bullet for those who sent them here

The world's alight, the cliffs erupt in flame
No escape, remorseless shrapnel rains
Drowning men, no chance for a warrior's fate
A choking death
ENTER HELL'S GATE


So good.

Stepbrother gave me this album (The Information) for Christmas today. I'm really enjoying it so far. Not really my style but I actually enjoy it anyway. Kindof makes me think of Kool Keith's better work, actually.

Gordian Knot - Muttersprache

My parents got me both Gordian Knot full-lengths for Christmas. Which is great, because I think they'll be good for driving music, but finding them in ordinary stores is impossible.

Ataxia - Dust

John Frusciante (RHCP) on guitar, Joe Lally (Fugazi) on bass & Josh Klinghoffer on drums.

I can only imagine the epic badassery that these three produce together.


It's not as badass as I expected it to be, but it's still great.

Dillenger Escape Plan - Miss MAchine.  This gets a lot of hate for some reason, mostly because of the more industrial-sounding elements they incorporated in the mix, but I really like it.  I hate the cover art a lot though.

Sage is awesome.  He's one of the few rappers out there that I am really into.  I can't wait for his new cd next year.
"Specialist/Hopeless" off the Personal Journals is probably my favorite part of that album...

"Hoppipolla" - Sigur Ros

Still an all-time favourite. I cry every time I watch the video because it reminds me so much of my grandpa who died last summer, and also of the grandpa who is here at my dad and stepmom's house who I might not ever see alive again after I go back to Albania.

Don't regard this as attention whoring, I'm just saying this song is awesome 'cause it reminds me of stuff and it's not even in a language I fully understand.

i recently aquiered recordings of 5 do make say think concerts and holly hell! dmst has always been one of my favorite bands. i love 'em. but live, even though i just heard fairly high quality recordings, they blew me completly out of the water. i never knew they were this good. everything, especially the drums, the saxaphone, and the horn are far more pronounced live and there's some definite improvisation going on as well. the music takes on a whole new level of intensity. there's now incredibly dramatic and intense crescendos and peaks, much more so than on any of their albums. much like when i saw the wrens live and was stunned by how they were far better live than on an album (even though i love their work), dmst floored me. i am now extremly excited to actually see them live in march and listening to these recordings have propelled them to a high spot on my list of favorite bands. for anyone who's a fan of the genre and has not heard these guys live, do yourself a favor and download some of their concerts.

The Clan Destined - Swinging Like Judas

"They teach of peace and love,
Yet stoke the sulphurous pyres of war.
Pray kiss this seal and glove,
that stroke drug-money, gun and whore.
Pious liars have all deceived us;
Bled the beggars - fed the choosers.
Our prayers shall have been heeded,
whence ye sinners swing like Judas!

SWING!"

So upset this band only came to one demo recording.

I just discovered that with the Botch DVD I mentioned earlier, not only do I get the DVD video of their last show, but also a cd of just the audio as well, so I can take it on the road with me.  I'm pretty psyched about that!

On that note, I am currently listening to the live version of their cover of "Rock Lobster" and it is glorious.

Sage Francis - Road Tested 2003-2005.  I guess it's a live album, or a compilation of live tracks he recorded from a couple different tours.  It's mostly stuff from Personal Journals, but some of the songs from Healthy Distrust make an appearance.  I'm not sure if this is just a bootleg, or an official release, but it's really good.

Jesu's new album (it got leaked about a week ago.) It is awesome! It's not very metal, it's more like a heavy, blissed out shoegaze album with lots of synths. I would liken it to M83 remixing Loveless, or something along those lines. You should all download it.

Converge - "Grim Heart/Black Rose" from the new cd.  I'm just a few listens away from saying this is the best song they've ever written.  It's a bit of a departure from usual form for them, as it features actual sung vocals (sung by Jonah Jenkins of Only Living Witness/Milltown, who has one of the best voices I've heard in a while) but it's just So. Damn. Good.  I really think they might have topped, or at least equalled, Jane Doe.

The Sword smell a bit like an ironic metal cash-in to me, but I haven't heard enough of their music to be sure. That stuff can either be blatantly awesome (3 Inches of Blood) or not (Goblin Cock).

Currently listening to:

Forefather - Ours is the Kingdom

"Our hearts are not in heaven,
Nor eastern desert sands,
With eyes closed to your saviour,
Our fate is in our hands!"
