Yeah, De-Loused was pure class and really solid, but since then there's too much masturbatory bullshit and not enough tunes.

Although kind of in line with what tommy said, it is kind of respectable that of the really huge mainstream rock acts, theirs is the sound closest to what you'd get if you set out to be as obnoxious as possible and alienate the average listener. Yet they have a huge fanbase. Which is semi-respectable. And he still has great hair.

^Bedlam in Goliath has nothing but tunes and the masturbatory stuff is kept to the minimum. Personally I love musical masturbation, it's much better than the boring musical restraint that you see in a lot of indie bands.

"Restraint" is an interesting choice since a good deal of high-profile independent records in this decade have demonstrated a knack for bombast. Unless you mean that they're reining in their noodling tendencies, in which case I'd argue that they're entitled to if it makes the song better.

Ok, I just heard some track off the new Mars Volta on the radio. I really don't know what they were trying to achieve with it. It pretty much sounded like they had guitars?

I'm going to see them this Friday for about the thousandth time. Strange but no matter how many times I see them they are still amazing every time. It's great they're finally getting soem recognition after all this time. People forget that they were doing what Arcade Fire do long before Arcade Fire were around. The new album is so moving as well. The instrumental The Great Skua almost has me in tears.

I'm gonna review it on the music blog as soon as I can get a copy here in Australia (I downloaded it, but I want to buy it and listen to it properly on speakers). "Atom" was the best song of 2007 courtesy of the Krankenhaus? E.P., and now that it's on the album it'll probably be the best song of 2008, too.

The Mars Volta can go ahead and progress into a stage where they're writing songs again that have a clear beginning, middle and end. They can then top themselves by writing things like hooks and melodies. I'd settle for one moment per song that distinguishes it from its brethren.

I dunno, Johnny, I thought the hooks and melodies in Frances the Mute were not only there, but worth sifting through the occasional stretch of nonsense or wankery for. Can't say I heard much to defend in Amputechture to justify the two times I've listened to it, though.

I dunno, now that it's on the album it's got some fuckin' stiff competition.

I kinda lost track of these guys after the first album but this one really goes above and beyond the hype. Goddamn.

At fifty dollars, your mark-up price is a little steep.

Anyway, through idle conversation I've all but promised my friendly local record store proprietor that I'll buy the album from him when his store gets it in. Sorry Matt, you'll have to make your easy money elsewhere!

The mark up would fit in with everything else we get from America being roughly 2x the cost it should be.

There's a massive markup on everything here in Australia. Knowing this, i still forgot to go to Amoeba last week when i was in LA and buy a shit load of music.
I'm going to start buying a lot more of my stuff from Amazon and from us stores because even after postage and all that jazz I've still made a saving and when it comes to these things i'm as patient as hell.

I'm hoping for new Tapes n' Tapes, Swan Lake, Wolf Parade and Destroyer.

So far:

Magnetic Fields  - Distortion
British Sea Power - Do You Like Rock Music?
Haven't listened to the new Mars Volta but it sounds good.

Looking forward to Mountain Goats, Flogging Molly, Destroyer... I want to be excited about Rancid's seventh album, but after Indestructable...  :?

Also, how about that new Spice Girls?! ...Yeah, didn't think so. Speaking of terrible things, I've also heard Staind is working on a new album. Why do they exist? Really.


Edit: Speaking of British Sea Power, my roommate came in to talk to me while it was on, and literally froze and went, "What's this? This is AWESOME. You need to send this to me." I said I would, and he went on talking. The song changed, and about 30 seconds he said, "This is great too! What's this?" I said it was still the same band and I'd just copy him the album, haha. He's not even into indie. Score one potential convert for BSP.

Based upon the songs I've heard from it so far, "Rest" by Gregor Samsa will be tough to beat. "55:12" is a amazing album and the new one (only their second full length) doesn't seem to be anything less. Needless to say I'm extremely excited for this to come out. It's been a long, long wait.

This Night + Destroyer's Rubies = Trouble in Dreams. Make of that what you will, but I think it's pretty good.

Also, if you thought "Shooting Rockets" was a piece of shit on Beast Moans, wait till you hear how much fucking ass it kicks on Trouble in Dreams.

No one will be more happy than me when our new record is finished. It will be, and it will be something else. Soon we have a new single out!
Some new tour dates will be published soon. (I promise that we´ll play some new songs!)

"Watershed" is the name of Opeth´s 9th studio observation. The album has just been mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren with M. Åkerfeldt. The album consist of 7 songs and the titles are as follows:

1. Coil
2. Heir Apparent
3. The Lotus Eater
4. Burden
5. Porcelain Heart
6. Hessian Peel
7. Hex Omega

All the songs have been written by M. Åkerfeldt apart from "Porcelain Heart" which was co-written with Fredrik Åkesson. One additonal track, "Derelict Herds" has also been recorded and this was written by Mikael Åkerfeldt and Per Wiberg. On top of this, 3 cover songs has been recorded. "Bridge of sighs" from Robin Trower´s 1974 Lp with the same title, "Den ständiga resan" (sung in Swedish) by Marie Fredriksson as well as the classic Alice in Chains song, "Would?".

The album was recorded at Fascination street studios during November 1 and December 13. Some addtional recordings were done between January 3rd and 7th. Produced by Jens Bogren and Mikael Åkerfeldt and Opeth.

Says Mikael Åkerfeldt: "I´ve worked so hard with these songs for quite some time now, I´ve listened to 'em a zillion times. I don't hate them just yet! The album sounds great sonically and I think I can hear us evolving as the record plays on. It is taking us somewhere musically and I don't know where. It's very exciting to say the least! I can't remember having enjoyed a recording this much ever before."

The cover was (as usual) designed by Travis Smith in co-operation with Åkerfeldt. Release date is yet to be confirmed but Roadrunner worldwide will have it out sometime in the Springtime of this year.

I loved Ghost Reveries, so I'm stoked for Opeth.

Also, Kalmah and Alchemy X have a new album out this year. Norther already released one too, but I don't have it yet.

The fact we get a new one of these things every year is basically the only reason I haven't topped myself yet. The cover is terrible, but I like it.

Edit: On a related note, you can hear the entirety of the new Make Believe album here. (but you have to sign up to hear more than 30 second previews)

I think the new Los Campesinos! album is going to be on my end of year list judging by the tracks I've heard from it already.

I also quite fancy the new Fuck Buttons.


And if there's a new Owls record...well that'd be just spiffy.

This Make Believe album is fantastic. I can already tell that it's better than Of Course. Though I'm somewhat disappointed by the song titles...

I'll bet it will be. Those guys are pretty much constantly playing around with music, and I do believe they've had enough time to come up with some better material, with other ideas being used in either last years JoA soundtrack, or various side projects.
Of course, this is assuming the album's line-up reunites the usual key players, and that Joan Of Arc isn't now considered the 'side project' for the people involved, which is the feeling I got from Eventually All At Once, Guitar Duets and the attachment of the name to the Orchard Vale soundtrack. E,AAO was nice enough, but I'm sure that this one is going to be much, much better.

Gonna go out on a limb and say that Bon Iver will be near the top of a few lists (although I supposed it's technically a 2007 release if you count a 500 CD independent issue).  You can listen to the whole album here if you don't know what I'm talking about and it releases on the 19th.   At the very least "Skinny Love" is unlikely to get pushed too far down my top 10 singles list.

things i'm looking forward to include

wintersun, judas priest, metallica (maybe), circle takes the square, the thermals...that's all i can think of off the top of my head

Wikipedia says that Politics Don't Sell Records is coming out this year.  I can't find a source but it seems likely since The Thermals haven't announced any recent shows, but they've already named the album in interviews.  Sweet!
