Joel!  You turned Chance onto Crowded House!?! I love you!  Chance, that is Tim Finn (Neil's older brother) in my avatar (who co-wrote a whole lot of the stuff on that best of)!  Wow! This is too cool...  What tracks are your favourite Chance?  My favourite song, of all time is Private Universe!  Dig that! :)  Incredible Cook Island Log Drumming,  Most haunting melody I've ever heard, and those ghostly harmonies...

See if you can pick up a copy of the "Seven Worlds Collide" DVD mate, it's Neil, Tim, Eddie Vedder, Johnny Marr, two guys from Radiohead all playing Neil Finn/Crowded House/Split Enz/Finn Brothers/Smiths stuff...  You'd love it.

Damnation, I want to start a Crowded House thread... 

Right now I'm listening to Ebert and Roeper's review of "The New World"...  I love Terrence Malicks films so much... Hope this one'll be good.

Yeah, Mat', my introduction to Crowded House is long overdue. Go ahead and start a thread, I've often thought of asking you to do one so that I'd have a sense of direction with these guys. I've long meant to explore them, their reputation is so high, I'm glad to finally be taking a taste. Joel also sent me a "Limited Edition Live Album" which I haven't dipped into yet. So far, I've only listened to the Best of once, but it's good. Not all the time, but in places, the vocals remind me of Aztec Camera's Roddy Frame, who's first album is a long time fave with me. I've alway loved "Don't Dream It's Over." Go ahead and start a thread, what do you think was the Finn's best work, Split Enz, House or as a duo?

IAN, YOU HAVE SPRINGSTEEN IN PARSIPPANY?!?!?!?   Holy fucking hell, my parents live there, I spent about 25 years there! You gotta let me get a hold of that. We'd always heard he played a local club, The Joint In The Woods, twice in early '74, and I'd heard there was a tape, but I never dreamt I'd ever get near a copy. Gosh Darn, small world!! How's the audio quality, how's the show? :D

Re the Bruce show - Sounds interesting - I love the 74 stuff, before they were famous. Not heard that one though. Heard a couple of the radio show gigs and the Liberty Hall one (with Clarence singing one about wine..). I still think the Hammersmith DVD is my favourite thing from the whole of this year. AND i haven't even managed to watch it in one go yet! Have to watch it in segments as it is just too exhausting to watch all the way through!.

I have been listening to: 29 - Ryan Adams - wonderful - his third of the year and possibly the best, though I still love Cold Roses.
A Double CD of the Everly's on Warner Bros which contains the wonderful Bowling Green (one of the great harmony singles of all time I think) - plus a lot of not so good stuff though.
The Doves - Some Cities - very good (got it for £2.99 in Tesco's - a UK supermarket) -
REM's last album (just about OK) - £3.99 in Tesco's.
Just been out today and bought Uncle Tupelo's No Depression and Patti Smith's reissue of Horses with the live version. Looking forward to them!

Can't tell you how much I appreciate it, Cap'n! I've been waiting a long, long time for this opportunity, I should have known you'd be the guy with the goods.  :) The thing is, music fans in Parsippany know about the show, and they remember the club (long since gone) but I don't know a single soul who was actually there or who has heard the recording. It seems to be one of those little footnote concerts that doesn't get widely circulated. I have a couple of his gigs from early '74, and every time I listen to one, I think, "This is how he must have sounded in Parsippany." Now after all these years, the hometown punters will get a chance to hear it. I'm even going to see if the local library will take a copy - I'll do up some nice artwork - but I'm pretty sure they'll tell me they can't catalog anything that violates copyright.

I prefer the old school and the pop rappers and some of the alt-rap.....very little of the underground rap and even less of the jazz-rap. Comedy rap tunes are always a hoot. As far as commercial rap goes, I like most of it up to Tupac, then everyone seemingly ripped off Tupac, so it all began sounding the same. Of course we all know Tupac was a VERY rare breed, someone who influenced his influences.

My ex-girlfriend was, I thought, my soulmate. We were together 8 years. When that ended, I decided never to care again, love again, foda the fuckin' world, PERIOD. I'm done.
But then I got lonely and I started searching, for a couple years, and found nothing but boredom, heartache and anger. So I stopped looking, gave it up. Said "Lord, whatever, I'm done. If she comes, cool, if not, that's fine". I said it out loud.
One month later, I met the most wonderful woman on the planet.
So, don't fight it, keep your eyes out, don't pass her by, but don't HUNT for her. She'll find you, she's out there, it just ain't time yet, dig?

Yes, Ian, that album is amazing! You know, the New York Dolls are usually mentioned when it comes to the history of punk/new wave, yet so many people have never even heard their music. I like to spread the word whenever I can.

Anyone here heard 'My Mind is Ramblin' by The Black Keys? It's from the Junior Kimbrough tribute album 'Sunday Nights. I was in a record shop in Berwick St (London) and they were playing it - there was a non-stop procession of people at the counter asking who it was and trying to buy it. Also contains a couple of Stooges tracks for you fans. Anyway - the Black Keys track is just AWESOME. If you haven't heard it get it now! If I knew how to work this thing properly I'd stick it here but haven't got that far yet... check it out anyway.

And Ian - you are making me very jealous!

Right now I'm listening to an excellently programmed oldie...um 'early music' station (some of you hate the "...but goodies" term,  I'm trying to be respectful)

Here's the link:

http://www.guld.nu/

If you can't find the launch-the-player link from this Swedish broadcaster, it can also be accessed from any fine online radio locator like vtuner.com by searching for 'Radio Guld'

It's an all-anglophone (so far) mix of the familiar and the definitely not, tunes like Airplane Song from the Royal Guardsmen and b-sides by John Fred's Playboy Band. Right now it's Neil Diamond doing Girl, you'll be a woman soon (never noticed there was what sounds like a Moody Blues mellotron in the backing...)

I've been listening to this new group called The Davis Brothers. If your wondering who will carry on the music Brian Wilson and The Beach Boys have left the world, I truly hope all of you will give these guys a listen. The best place to hear samples of their music is www.cdbaby.com and their website (www.davisbrothersonline.com), though their site is not 100% completed. I've bought the CD and it's just amazing, and it's clear they "get it" when it comes to Brian Wilson's music. Check it out !!   ;)

"Open My Eyes" -- yeah baby!

I've been listening to Steve Miller Band's "Living in the USA" over and over trying to get the harp solo down -- fairly tough!  Some of his early stuff (pre-"Joker"/"Eagle") is pretty damn good -- not a cool thing to say I know but that makes it even cooler!

Somebody give me a cheeseburger!

Just listened to a few songs from the new UNCUT CD this month, and the good news is there is a new Neko Case album nearly with us - great track on the CD. Her two other albums are a great sort-of-country-with added TWANG and she has a great voice. What makes it not country are the lyrics and attitude, which betrays her ex-punk drummer beginnings. Fantastic voice.

Staight No chaser- The Bill Holman Band-playing the music of Monk
One of the best jazz riffs ever. Does anyone know how many studio versions Monk cut by himself? Seven? Eight? Fifteen?

(PS: I love the version on "Five By Monk By Five".)

It is a great riff, but I don't know the answer to your question. The album quoted above is great, by the way. The Holman does Monk thing.

I've only made it through about half the set so far, but so far so very good. The sound is excellent, at the very least an improvement over the old Japanese CD of Live-Evil I have. I really enjoy this particular period of Miles' music, so I had a bias already.

You don't have to be a huge fan to enjoy the latest album, and the two new(-ish) guitarists are absolutely killer. Great songs, great sound (that only the Allmans ever had), great playing and singing. I'm sure Duane would be punching you on the arm and telling you to go for it!

I've seen the Musical Box 3 times now.Twice doing "Selling England By the Pound" tour '73.And once doing "The Lamb..".These guys are F'n incredible.You actually think you're watching GENESIS with Gabriel.In fact,Genesis has endorsed these guys with being the "true" Genesis tribute band.All the equipment is vintage 70's.ARP Pro-soloist,Mellotron,Hammond T-105 organ,Leslie cabinets.The special effects and backdrops WERE Genesis' from those days.They gave TMB all that to make the shows authentic.Go see TMB if you get a chance.It's like taking a trip back in time!!

I'm one of the biggest Genesis fans you'll ever meet.  A huge collector as well.  What a fantastic band.  I enjoy all of their albums, though I'd have to agree with 1976-1978 being their best (as in most creative) period.

Rick Nelson's cover of Love Story by Randy Newman, amazingly good! It's Nelson sings Nilsson (as in primary inspiration taken from Harry's interpretation). The arrangement, sound FX and singing take cues as well from Smiley-Era Beach Boys (opens with water as a rhythm section for one thing, the sound of a troubador's boat being oared through Hawaiian waters)  and seemingly Van Dyke Parks, a very modular deal. Who put this Ricky-Rick song together?

Television -- "Close Up"

This early stuff sounds a lot like really early Beatles, and they probably went through three phases in 5-6 years.  All nice.  Stuff like "Close Up" and "Eat the Light" has this slow, vague country feel...more like dry Ricky Nelson.  And Hell's bass playing is really melodic.

Roxy Music-"Siren"  Ferry Rules!!!
Bri

Tom Verlaine asked about Brian Eno's sessions for an aborted Television LP:

Quote
Verlaine: The only thing I can tell you about it would be bad! I mean I like Eno, I like his records... The bad thing about it is there was a very uncool A&R guy who took the tapes back to London and played 'em for every fucking artist on Island Records, so-and like I tell that to people but they don't believe it, it happens a lot, especially with the English... I mean they ripped off a whole fucking artform from Americans. And their whole esthetic is like if they hear something that's good it just sorta comes in their ear and goes out their mouth y'know-and most of 'em have the means to like set something on vinyl really quickly, crank out the stuff, so yeah, so there's a lot of lines that are on our record (MM) that might strike some people as familiar even though the songs are like 4 years old...specifically, a lot of the lines turned up on Roxy Music's SIREN record-at least a dozen! Some I got so distressed about I said 'Well f***! -if he's gonna take THESE lines! I mean how can I prove it, I can't prove it, right? But you know...

George Elliott: Quote some, I'm very familiar with that album...

TV: One of them is 'My heart stopped' and the whole band stops...

GE: (quoting Ferry) 'Will it stop?' (Sentimental Fool)

TV: Right, which is a move we used to do in 'Venus de Milo' ...which I got bored with and changed anyway. Another thing is 'This case is closed' at the end of - see, I only heard the album twice, I got so like pissed off when I heard it I took it out and sold it (laughing) didn't want to hear it again!... And there was this thing about little birdcalls I think on one of the songs.

GE: "Nightingale"

TV: Right- we used to have like a (chirp-whistles imitating a bird) kind of effect on a song called 'Prove It'...another thing is on the tape I did for Eno I did a certain style of playing piano-a certain kind of harmony with two hands- which showed up in their keyboards on I believe the second song on the first side ("End of the Line") just a certain way like- but I can't claim originality for that, it was just curious that even THAT showed up... and then we had, the song 'Venus de Milo' the whole subject of it is Love is a drug, I mean there's even a line in it "It's all just like a new kind of drug" -and then there's this Roxy song (chuckling) on SIREN 'Love is the Drug'! ... Bryan Ferry's known as a thief y'know, everybody sort of knows it...

I do love Siren, as well.  Incidentally.

Paper Shoes by Yoko (ewww, her!), excellent psychedelia. Like much great rock it's inspired by a passing train and undergirded by a bo diddley beat. The train is the opening sound effect, an amplified and very extended version of the Pet Sounds one, you might say. Forget Yoko for a moment, the train part is a stereo hi-fi found-sound-lover's delight,  and very fourth dimensional, a little mind movie. The Yoko that follows is very subdued vocalwise and subordinated to the typical Plastic-Band rhythm track (the same whoever it's playing behind), a wordless train blues, a very good one and a fine piece of dynamically propelled trance music too.

Inspired by the Rolling Stone article and the other thread, a GnR bootleg, "Unplugged." It's half '92 in Argentina, half '87 (CBGB's, I think). Amusing, I guess. Kind of.

"Reach out in the Darkness" by Friend & Lover, one of the finest fake  'hippie anthem'-s. It's seemingly modelled on songs from exactly contamporary HAIR and has a soulful chick paired with a Robin Gibb-type guy doing his own Bee Gees-like verses between the 'So Groovy now, people trying to get together' let-the-sunshine-in choruses.

This could easily be turned into an AT&T commercial, and almost certainly was; with "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" , evidence of the thin line between sincere generational statements and advertising jingles (selling top 40 songs to the 'youth market' in 1968 or so was pretty much the same deal as selling them Coke) .

I've just succumbed to the hype and done something I haven't done for a while.  Bought a new album by one of those new-fangled modern day young bands.  This one The Arctic Monkeys debut album, who are currently the big new rage in UK, don't know about anywhere else.  It's pretty good on first listening.

"You're the One that I Want", Beautiful South's slowed down stax country soul duet take on the Olivia and John Grease song, revealing the very decent composition beneath the over-familiar performance,  Sort of like Richard Thompson's rehabs of Brittney Spears tunes and such,  but less musicological and more fun, with the Grease-iness intact, as in the musical but as transposed to a Wimpy's burger joint romance somewhere in the north of England.

I really like this band in their boy-girl singer early incarnation, but when the girl walked, the boy's musical-lyrical muse  walked with her in my opinion

Edit (still listening): an amazing, rocking cover of "Hang on Sloopy" by Supaphorn, a Siamese girl-led band from the sixties as retitled "Cham Chai" and available on 2005 release Thai Beat A Go-Go, Vol. 3 (heard thanks to Pandora)

Post by: Jason on February 01, 2006, 05:58:20 PM
I dunno, it just has that Beatles (circa 1967-68) vibe, one that Gilberto Gil's version lacks. It's not really "about" anything, like most Beatles tunes from 1967-68. I still maintain that Os Mutantes' first album is a psychedelic meisterwerk that still has not received its proper due (Ian, you HAVE to listen to this band, they will FLOOR you!).

I was just listening to HOLLAND. Even though I knew it, it just now struck me as interesting that Carl sings lead on both of Dennis' songs - "Steamboat" and "Only With You". Carl does a terrific job, but I wonder what prompted Dennis to give 'em up? Was Dennis' voice starting to go like Brian's?

Then I realized that with Carl singing lead on "Trader", some of "Funky Pretty", and "Better Get Back In Bed", maybe the group thought  HOLLAND was becoming the Carl Wilson Show and suggested that Blondie sing lead on "Sail On Sailor". I still wish Carl would've sang (the released) lead on "Sail On Sailor"...

"Baby" (1971 version) , Os Mutantes. I love this Caetono Veloso song whoever sings it and whenever, but the English lyric here is so cool. Part of it is just hearing Rita Lee address one directly in English telling you to learn Portuguese, but it's the translation too. It scans just like the original, but it gains in English in a couple ways. One is just the words themselves, the four strung, unelaborated, rhymes following '...Saber'/'learn to know' in the original: piscina, carolina, margarina, gasolina are much stronger as 'take a new look at the new land, the swimming pool and the teeth of your friend, the dirt in my hand...' In both, it's a call to survey the new seductive (and underlying) realities of America South, but the Os M. version of '71 really brings out the psychedelic pop advertisement aspect, Rita Lee as 'read my T-shirt' pop-siren who might be interpreted as saying 'love the swinging scene and love me', but is really saying 'see it for what it really is, and tune  in and drop out with me!' It's like an ad for the band itself, a statement of Tropicalia purpose.  Always so, I suppose, in all its versions, but it suits them best.

Agree, it's a great song, it sounds like they switched the meaning around, in the portuguese version I have with Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso, they sing about "you need to learn english" and I always thought it was a song about the americanization of the brazilian culture, but it sounds like they turned it around so in Rita Lee's version it becomes an appeal to the english-speaking foreigners to learn more about the southamerican culture.

Intercontinental Catapult, amazing 'information overflow' music noise computer art by Finnish "Pink Twins" Juha and Vesa Vehviläinen in concert with the Vortice Orchestra. This long piece, the whole history of electronic music smooshed together, was recorded at the Venice Biennale a few months back and is being rebroadcast as a onetime radio deal so I'm not likely to step into this particular electronica stream again (and I wish I'd gotten to see the visuals accompanying the audio, reportedly just as trippy), but a nice bracing Sunday morning shower while it lasts.

He takes 5 years between albums because he spends two years out on tour, a year relaxing, and two years working on the new album.

I've been listening to McCartney's most recent album (Chaos and Creation...) as I've only just got round to buying it.  Incredible - I love it!  It's his 'Love and Theft'!  I feel it's no exaggeration to say this is his best non-Beatles album.  I like it that much.

Just one thing though...with all his money you'd think he'd be living in better style by now than what's depicted on the front cover.  And Heather, love, those net curtains are filthy...

Anybody have the debut from 2/20 in uncompressed sound? I've got the mp3, which doesn't sound bad, but I think somebody torrented an uncompressed version which would be even better.

It's on there.  Icky Flix has everything, including a few newer videos for the DVD.  You should like it.  There are some awesome easter eggs, too, like the Residents dancing with Conway Twitty on Night Music (US TV show).

I like this one's scenario/experiment: a very talented person who came to the classic totally blind, commisioned by Mike Watt to remake it  to satisfy a sentimental need (D. Boone's old fave) with a mystic twist ("she" was somehow  the one who 'must' do this), Petra hearing it fresh and reproducing it without a clue except what her ears told her to do. Shades of "Cobwebs and strange", and a very uncynical deal I assure you.

Wild Tiger Woman by The Move. I've already stated it, others have spontaneously echoed the opinion: this is where the classic Queen sound begins..the recipe down to the last pinch of Duane Eddie mixed with castrato choruses and a certain guitar sound, unmistakably beyond a doubt but how'd they get here way first? And why didn't Roy Wood's band exploit it to death first upon discovering it. Maybe because it didn't chart too well, ahead of its time as they say. Check it out.

I'm also listening to some old Belle and Sebastian as my next track (my soundtrack has shifted since I started writing), more great baroque bubblegum.

Hmm...it was performed by the Trammps, but it was featured on the 'Saturday Night Fever' soundtrack, which of course had a lot of Bee Gees on it, and is generally considered a Bee Gees album. That's probably why it's crediting like that.

Luther, you have great taste!  I love Dear Catastrophe Waitress!  What do you think of the latest Belle and Sebastion record?

About half of it ranks as my favorite B&S songs ever. The other half, to me, is a little worse than DCW. It's still nice, but not as great. Seriously, though, White Collar Boy, Blues Are Still Blue, Dress Up In You and a few others are really as good as any of it. I prefer the new, slightly funky, focused, well-produced stuff to their earlier work. Everyone always raves about their first albums, but to me, that's just the same thing as people always liking the unreleased BBs stuff. "Oh, I only like the EARLY stuff.

Luther, you have great taste!  I love Dear Catastrophe Waitress!  What do you think of the latest Belle and Sebastion record?

About half of it ranks as my favorite B&S songs ever. The other half, to me, is a little worse than DCW. It's still nice, but not as great. Seriously, though, White Collar Boy, Blues Are Still Blue, Dress Up In You and a few others are really as good as any of it. I prefer the new, slightly funky, focused, well-produced stuff to their earlier work. Everyone always raves about their first albums, but to me, that's just the same thing as people always liking the unreleased BBs stuff. "Oh, I only like the EARLY stuff. You've caught on too late..." etc.

I saw them on tour again this time around, too, and must say it was fantastic--better than the DCW tour.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat on the new one.  I think even with minor flaws, it is one of the best records put out in the last couple of years. 

I love their old stuff as welll and my favorite album of theirs is If You're Feeling Sinister but I understand totally the "You've caught on too late" crowd and it pisses me off!  Just enjoy the music and give up the damn race to be the first to discover something and then throw it away when it gets some bigger exposure!

Classic Country . At the moment, it's playing Reba McEntire "You Lie" which I guess is the name of the song.  It's pretty damn brilliant whatever it's called.  It's one of those songs where you expect the melody to rise up a little bit, but instead she sings it about an octave above where you think it's going, and you get goosebumps.

I'm going to try to listen to the whole song without trying to commit suicide this time. 

How the hell can people make a melody, and a minor key sound like death?  It's so pretty, but so sad at the same time.  I saw him live in concert a couple years ago.  He's equally great live.

Seriously, you need to. They all become essential after a while, but Nilsson Sings Newman is the pinnacle. Son of Schmilsson is also great, a really individual and funny album. Or, watch The Point.

Now I got a connection between two of my favourite Band, the BBs and Sparklehorse. Never thought that would happen.  :smokin

The 'legend' is that he wanted his voice to have that rough quality that a voice has when you just rolled out of bed.  So he'd go to the studio an hour before everybody else, and record a new vocal, until he got that one, every morning for a couple weeks.

Don't know if it's true or not.

As far as I know, that's what really happenend. I say that because I read it again in some (official) liner notes or something, not lang ago.

"Oh! Darling" is one of my all-time favourite Fab4 recordings as well.
There was a time when it was basically the only song I had with me all the time, and I listened to it like 20-30 times a day. That song plus whiskey is awesome for the heartsickness. Well, "awesome".

According to Mark Lewisohn's Beatles Recording Sessions book ... It's true. According to one engineer quoted in the book, McCartney was heard to say at one of the sessions, something like: "Man, five years ago I could have done this in a flash..."

Seeing Andy Kim mentioned in the canoe.ca review of the Toronto show is probably going to get me to listen to his version of "Baby I Love You" again.

And a lesser-known 45 of his, "Tricia Tell Your Daddy." (It was written in 1969 by Jeff Barry and Marty Sanders of Jay And The Americans, and yes, it is about Richard Nixon. Kim's version is all right, but JATA's version is really good - Jay Black's singing is as sterling as always, plus it's got Walter Becker on bass and Donald Fagen on piano in their pre-Dan days. You can find both on YouTube.)

But the truth is that for quite a while, two tracks have played over and over in my head, a little like the way "Be My Baby" and "Proud Mary" play in Brian's. They're "Scope J" and "Lullaby," written and produced by Scott Walker with Ute Lemper singing. (The former is on her Punishing Kiss CD; the latter just on the Japanese issue of that disc. Both were on the OOP Scott boxset Five Easy Pieces.)

Aside from 'Summer's Gone' (which I can't take my ears off!) I've been listening to the Orange Juice box set pretty obsessively: mainly 'The Glasgow School' and 'You Can't Hide Your Love Forever'. They were quite something.

That's great that he came out the closet... for the longest I told my gf he was gay but she didn't believe me(not that it matters)...she is obsessed with him & weekend (she's a real r&b head)

Yeah, but that is just ridiculously not relevant. He's an 'out' performer (and fwiw, he didn't explicitly say 'I'm Gay/Bisexual/whatever' in that wonderful statement so applying those labels is problematic/jumping the gun) but I don't explicitly view, IDK, Carl Wilson as a 'straight' performer. They're just artists. And it's just not an album explicitly about being a man with a confused sexuality. A song like Bad Religion is about many things, not just 'Oh f***, I appear to be a gay man in the hip-hop community' and whilst he's extremely brave, he's also made a great album that deserves to celebrated as just that!

The prominent feeling seems to be good-natured. If I was him, I wouldn't be too sore about 'fans' who stop listening to him because of the statement. It's the 21st century. f*** them.

You're absolutely right...It's all about the music.
The best thing to do is to keep both worlds separate and never mix them...
That's what I do when I listen to Michael Jackson, I completely block out all those accusations because at the end of the day I respect the man's music and entertainment (music videos,dancing) :) and nothing else matters.

Neil Young. Can't get enough of the guy recently. Bought his debut album through "Harvest" one week; the next "On the Beach" and "Tonight's the Night" and just yesterday bought "Zuma" and "Rust Never Sleeps".

Still delving further into Neil Young. Right this second I'm listening to "Sleeps with Angels" which took me a while to get into. Definitely a night-time album like "Tonight's the Night" and "On the Beach". Also I think "Weld" has changed my views on life as we know it. Very much looking forward to "Psychedelic Pill".

Also a lot of krautrock, mainly Popol Vuh thanks to the Herzog connection, but a few dabblings into Amon Duul & Amon Duul II territory (Amon Duul's "Psychedelic Underground" is certainly ... something :P interesting backstory though)

And assorted other things, but I won't bore people with a super long post on all my musings ::)

The Marit Larsen compilation If a Song Could Get Me You, taking tracks from her debut and sophomore solo albums (Under the Surface and The Chase). It's very sprightly, mainstream pop music! I really like "Only a Fool" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVQgNHv1Mg8) and maybe you will too~


Title: Re: The return of the \
Post by: Myk Luhv on September 08, 2012, 06:45:58 PM
D-D-Double post!

Now I'm listening to The Cat's Miaow compilation A Kiss and a Cuddle because I'm getting into twee pop. "Make a Wish" excerpts the famous bit of studio chatter where Brian asks Chuck if they can get a horse into the studio, and they even recorded an EP titled Pet Sounds. How anyone can think The Beach Boys aren't loved by so-called hipsters is beyond me!

Before this I was listening to ...And Don't the Kids Just Love It by Television Personalities, for the same reason. That album is wicked too!

edit: Now I'm listening to A Certain Smile, A Certain Sadness by Rocketship, on the third track now ("Heather, Tell Me Why") and though it's obviously more produced than the last two albums (not that this'd be hard...) it's already very good!

edit 2: I then listened to Backwash by Telulah Gosh -- the first, also apparently incredibly influential band Amelia Fletcher was in before she formed Heavenly (guess I listened in the wrong order because before that I was listening to Heavenly Versus Satan!) -- and while Heavenly certainly has a hell of a lot of hookiness, they're definitely "artier" compared to TG, though not by a crazy amount.

Now I'm finished up listening to Fun Trick Noisemaker by The Apples in Stereo. I don't find anything on here nearly as memorable as the albums I've heard by The Olivia Tremor Control (Dusk at Cubist Castle) or of Montreal (Cherry Peel, The Gay Parade) but it's not a horrible album by any means -- it just doesn't stick with me very long after it's done like those others did/do. Think I'll try Her Wallpaper Reverie next though as I've not heard that one yet...

edit 3: After listening to Her Wallpaper Reverie for the first time I think I feel the same way about this album as I do about their earlier one. I think the wrong Elephant 6 groups get the praise; Neutral Milk Hotel isn't that fantastic either!

Well, last week I ordered the first two non-used CDs I've gotten since TWGMTR. (I used to buy a dozen or more brand-new discs a month - how long ago those days seem.)

One, which will be arriving later this week, is Scott Walker's new album Bish Bosch - which, to judge from the reviews, is his version of a comedy record. He apparently even mentions Jimmy Durante in it. (Along with Donald Rumsfeld, various historical conquerers and dictators, and the other folk he more typically namedrops.)

The other record is UFO by Jim Sullivan. After listening to all the tracks at Youtube a ton of times I decided I needed to have it.

Sullivan, not to be confused with the late British guitarist of that name, was a big, brawny, hard-drinking guy from San Diego who came up to LA in early '68, settled in Sherman Oaks, and started gigging. He often played in Malibu, and in the booklet with the CD there's a photo of him jamming with Ed Carter, so that, plus the highly impressive Fu Manchu mustache he sported, leads me to think he must have raised some hell with Dennis at least a couple of times.

(Sullivan was also a pal of Harry Dean Stanton and Peter Fonda, and in fact shows up briefly in Easy Rider - he's the guy in the cowboy hat strumming a guitar in the commune scene.)

In 1969, thanks to some money from a Texan friend of his manager's, Sullivan recorded UFO for the short-lived Monnie label. He almost always worked the clubs solo and acoustic, but the record features backing by some of the most impressive Wrecking Crew names (Randi, Earl Palmer, Lyle Ritz) and superb string and horn arrangements by bassist Jimmy Bond. I've seen many reviews comparing the production to David Axelrod's work but the overall sound also brings Forever Changes to mind.

The lyrics are often as hippy-dippy as they are genuinely moving and incisive, but Sullivan's voice - sort of halfway between Fred Neil and Gordon Lightfoot -really makes the songs work. That, and he was quite an able guitarist.

But the album got little notice. In 1972, it was reissued on the Century City label, remixed to make it more in line with the post-James Taylor singer-songwriter sound. Soon afterwards, Sullivan put out his second and last album on the Playboy label. The one song I've heard from this is more conventional-sounding than the UFO record, as if the label wanted to play up his vocal similarity to Lightfoot.

That album also received little notice and by March 1975, Sullivan was label-less, and separated from his wife. He decided to pack up his car and move to Nashville, where he had some friends.  Within a day of leaving LA, he was pulled over by the cops in Santa Rosa, New Mexico, for driving "erratically," and advised by them to spend the night there and get a fresh star in the morning - anyway, that was what they said later.

After several days, when Sullivan failed to show up in Nashville, his family and friends started looking. Since Sullivan had phoned his wife from New Mexico, a couple of his friends went there.

They learned that two days after Sullivan arrived in Santa Rosa, his car was found on the outskirts of town. It was locked, and inside were his wallet, guitar, and the rest of his belongings. His motel room had the room key on his dresser, but there were no other signs of occupancy, though the staff said he had checked in.

Nothing more has been seen or heard from Jim Sullivan, from that day to this. He's one of the two premier missing persons of American popular music, the other being Connie Converse who vanished at almost the same time - and whose music was rediscovered at about the same time as Sullivan's.

Anyway, the story - plus the photo of him and Ed Carter is at http://www.bluetoad.com/publication/?i=44337&p=1. My fave songs of his, all on Youtube, are Highways, UFO, Johnny, and Jerome. The guy's stuff is definitely worth checking out.

Those would be some stressed out Rice Krispy Treats.

I quite liked it - although it might not be a valid criticism, after some point the notion of 'tracks' sort of becomes a bit pointless with it, it just felt like an extended piece. I was mostly struck by how abrasive it was with both sheer terror and humour (sample lyric from 'Epizootics', I think - 'You're so fat, when you put on a yellow coat people scream 'TAXI!!!'' ) and the oddness of Scott's voice. He's pushing it into weird places.

Yeah, I think I liked it. If you want to spend an hour getting simultaneously weirded out and enjoying some of the oddest music you'll hear this year, go for it.

Drop Out With The Barracudas, a criminally underrated 1982 album whose '60s "surf revival" singles betrays an album as much indebted to Byrds-y chiming guitar as it was The Beach Boys. But, damn if the surf/summer songs aren't great (for good reason)!

Blue Christmas is on the radio. It sounds so good with all those expensive tube leveling radio station limiters. Whatever it is the station uses to get its sound..God, it sounds nice. Elvis has more music in his voice than other singers. More music per phrase. More music per note. More per syllable. My limited grasp on the science is hindering me. But I'd rather strike out after a sincere effort, than not at all.

Hell yeah!  Now that's soul.  Carolina Beach Music, great stuff.  Everytime I see that 'swiffer' commercial where they play it, I have to go download it and play the original song.  That guy was awesome.  I think some of that stuff (maybe Give me just a little more time) was recorded here in Charlotte. 

Sadly though, it's the exact type of music that reminds me of the exact time in my life that was the most unpleasant, so I don't listen to it too much.  Brings back bad memories!  Good stuff though!

You're correct, they were considered a part of it, though not really via any first-hand collaborations or histories with the original Ruston / Athens crew. Below is what was reportedly a Robert Schneider-made E6 family tree from several years ago. (This is per the E6 message board, a poster from which said it was pulled from the Apples site at some point.) You'll see Schneider (apparently) included them.

*The band consists of two dudes, and by the time they got to that album they hated each other so much they didn't want the others songs next to theirs on the album! Hence, Jason's side and Sonic's side.

And now the new Christopher Owens (ex-Girls frontman/songwriter) album, his debut solo record. It's pretty blatantly ambitious--which to be honest, I don't mind. There's a certain kind of idea that by keeping it off the cuff, or sloppy, or lo-fi, or basic, that you're being honest and unpretentious. But there is a lot of pretentiousness in that, sometimes, too. And aiming high has a real risk: failure. So you have to respect someone who is willing to work hard at it, even if it's a laughable failure. (This isn't necessarily that.)

Two of the first four true songs (discounting the intro, so New York City and Here We Go Again) are pretty cool.

Fun fact, two or three of the songs so far have ended with a "Picardy third," which is when a tune is in a minor key but the final chord is the tonic in major instead of minor. (So if it is in A minor, the final chord is A major.)

If your mind is where mine has been since first hearing it--say, 15 years ago--you're laughing and saying "gonad." Because lets be honest, jokes about balls are funny. But I think (I am no expert in french...or even an amateur in french) it is pronounced roughly "Goo-No." Feel free to just call him "Nad," though. I don't mind. (It is a great requiem, though.)

If anyone is thinking, 'well, I got it the last time they reissued it, and what do I need another disc of bonus tracks for?', BUY IT - the 'new' outtakes are actually surprisingly different, including things like Lindsey and Stevie duetting on Never Going Back again, which has bongos, brushes, piano and different guitar licks, a Stevie demo of 'The Chain' that is a completely different tune apart from the chorus (and 'Keep Me There', a completely different song where the end of The Chain comes from, but can't remember whether that was on the 2004 one), Dreams with just the Rhodes/minimal guitar riffs, a really intimate demo of Songbird... makes you wonder what they were thinking with the previous reissue.

So worth hunting it down.

If anyone is thinking, 'well, I got it the last time they reissued it, and what do I need another disc of bonus tracks for?', BUY IT - the 'new' outtakes are actually surprisingly different, including things like Lindsey and Stevie duetting on Never Going Back again, which has bongos, brushes, piano and different guitar licks, a Stevie demo of 'The Chain' that is a completely different tune apart from the chorus (and 'Keep Me There', a completely different song where the end of The Chain comes from, but can't remember whether that was on the 2004 one), Dreams with just the Rhodes/minimal guitar riffs, a really intimate demo of Songbird... makes you wonder what they were thinking with the previous reissue.

So worth hunting it down.

Hey, I got the 3-disc version yesterday. I kinda regret not getting the box set version, but I figured since I already had the 2004 reissue that I didn't really need this. Maybe I'll get the box someday.

Anyways, the "acoustic duet" versions of "Never Going Back Again" and "Doesn't Anything Last" are quite awesome. With "Never Going Back Again", the album version is still my favorite, but this is definitely a cool thing to listen to for something different. As far as "Doesn't Anything Last", I really dug the version that was on the '04 version, but this one is even better. Lindsey and Stevie sound great, and it sounds less like a demo/rehearsal than the '04 version. It's a shame they didn't flesh it out more, but what is there is gorgeous.

I also love both versions of "Keep Me There". The instrumental version is quite interesting, it really rocks along nicely. But my favorite thing on the box is definitely the vocal version of "Keep Me There", it's just so cool to hear it as a "song", since I honestly never knew it got that far. It's also interesting to note that Christine was singing the same basic lyric as that of "Butter Cookie (Keep Me There)" from the '04 set.

Stevie's demo of "The Chain" is also quite interesting. It's basically a different song than the album version of "The Chain". The only thing that it really shares is the lyrics. The "classic" version of "The Chain" actually uses Christine's chords from "Keep Me There" on the chorus. "The Chain" also takes the ending of "Keep Me There" for it's classic fade. Not to mention that the beginning riff from "The Chain" actually comes from a song of Lindsey's on the Buckingham Nicks album called "Lola".

I haven't even listened to the disc with the live tracks, but I'm sure I'll get to that soon enough. Honestly, my biggest problem with the set is that they didn't use the live disc to feature a few things that aren't extremely well known. For instance it woulda been cool to hear the Rumours era group doing their live versions of "Station Man" and "Tell Me All The Things You Do". Both are superb songs written by Danny Kirwan from the Mac's 1970 Kiln House album that nevertheless really seemed to fit the Lindsey and Stevie version of the band. If they have good quality tapes for each song, I hope at some point they'd get a release.

Sounds like you have all you need, I just got the big one as I wanted Rumours on vinyl and had a gift voucher from Amazon - the DVD is kinda pointless unless you were really jonesing to see 'The Rosebud Film', which is only half an hour long and ALL THE DISC CONTAINS, THE BASTARDS  :angry Kinda amazed they didn't bother to licence, idk, the Classic Albums doc or do some new interviews or throw on more footage from that 'rosebud' stuff or SOMETHING.

After a long absence, I got out some of Johnny Cash's American Recordings, produced by Rick Rubin. I love that stuff, especially the sound they created. And, Johnny's aged voice is so poignant on some of the reminiscing songs. I'm really enjoying:

"I Hung My Head"
"One"
"I've Been Everywhere"
"Rusty Cage"
"The Man Comes Around"
"Father And Son"
"Love's Been Good To Be"
"As Long As The Grass Shall Grow"
"The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"

Foxygen - We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic*
Herman Dune - Mariage a Mendoza


*This is one some people here might like, because they're really aping some specific styles...bands...albums...songs...licks that people on this board like. Sometimes it's clever and well done, but there is also something off-putting about thinking, "sh*t, that's Suspicious Minds right there...hey, that's from Blonde on Blonde..." etc. I almost feel like if it was done as a gimmick or joke, it's really cool. And if it was just that they think they're writing original (but influenced-by...) songs, it's just awful.

The new Justin Timberlake album, The 20/20 Experience. Odd. No real 'singles', in that the shortest song is just under five minutes long. But it sounds great. Besides the last two tracks, which destroy the flow (last one is all vibe, no song), it's kinda the best you could expect from him having taken 6 years off to become JT, anything but a pop star. It's got a neat 'hey, I'm married and it's the best, I'm in love you guys' vibe to it.

In my experience, hipsters like him. At least the 30-something Minneapolitan ones, which are those with whom I'm most familiar. But yeah, I think it seems pretty obvious to anyone with ears that the guy is really talented and has what it takes to be among the dying breed of old-fashioned pop star. He can sing, he can play, he's good looking, he can act, he can dance. A regular John Stamos.

Kidding.

Kind of.

I like the guy at the end who keeps telling you about what he did at different ages. 

And then another guy goes into this long diatribe explaining to you how he ended up dating a reporter, then you find out the reporter was Lois Lane, then you find out he did all that to tell you that he's better than Superman.

Then another guy explains to you that the biggest problem in his life was the time when he went to his friends house for dinner, and the food was really bad, so he got up and ran away from the kitchen table. 

Rap used to be so easy to understand.

One of the coolest Beatles covers.  Pretty straight forward, but it kind of sounds like the girls are singing it in a lower key than the Beatles did?  Very strange.  Nice guitar work, John would have loved it, I think.   I think John was very proud of that lick, if you listen closely when he did the show with Elton John in Madison Square Garden, when he walks on stage, he plays that lick to tune his guitar.

It's a terrific album by one of my favorite artists. What is/are your favorite track(-s) off it? F.ex., I like The Hungry Intruder, Happiness Stan, Lazy Sunday. Btw, I'm fond of it not for the music, but also the fairytale-like narration. Reminds me a bit of Mount Vernon & Fairway.
Yap, great album. Easily on par with all the other more well-known, higher profile concept albums by 'bigger' bands.



Speaking of bands which should have been much bigger and also in regard to what I'm listening to right now:

It's a terrific album by one of my favorite artists. What is/are your favorite track(-s) off it? F.ex., I like The Hungry Intruder, Happiness Stan, Lazy Sunday. Btw, I'm fond of it not for the music, but also the fairytale-like narration. Reminds me a bit of Mount Vernon & Fairway.
Yap, great album. Easily on par with all the other more well-known, higher profile concept albums by 'bigger' bands.



Speaking of bands which should have been much bigger and also in regard to what I'm listening to right now:

I'm jealous, need to get my hands on that. #1 Record, Radio City and Sister Lovers are always on heavy rotation with me. Occasionally spiced up with the box set and the live albums but there's just never enough! :lol

Been on a Teenage Fanclub kick recently, bought five of their albums on a whim and am hooked.

Got The Essential Phil Spector today - The remasters of The Righteous Brothers, The Modern Folk Quartet, The Treasures, etc, are so insane. It fills in nearly everything besides the Philles Album Collection except....


Why in the name of Mike Love didn't they put River Deep Mountain High on it? Or any of the other banging Ike & Tina cuts produced by Phil - his zenith! If any tune could be defined as 'The Essential Phil Spector', it's River Deep. I need a remaster, goddamnit.


This is where someone tells me they remastered the River Deep Mountain High album too and I do a backflip.

Is the Essential Phil Spector worth getting? The only PS stuff i have is the Wall of Sound Retrospective, Christmas Gift, Back to Mono and Philles Album Collection and obviously there's some tracks missing from them (given the amount of overlap in the Philles Album Collection alone :P ). The River Deep Mountain High album remaster  has been on my wishlist since it came out in '11, really should get around to buying it as I've heard it's dynamite. £12.37 on Amazon at the moment.

Depends - the remasters are great, but then you've already got most of them on the Philles Album Collection! I picked up the Essential for a fiver from my local record shop, and The Righteous Brothers tracks alone are worth the price of admission - You've Lost That Lovin Feelin' sounds so fresh, they've done really good work on the master. Also, has those obscurer ones that I mentioned.

The American version apparently has the Ike & Tina cuts - a boardmember was able to hit me up with River Deep Mountain High, which sounds great, but if the full River Deep album was remastered I should pick that up... but was it remastered by the same dudes? Need to see if it's on Spotify or something.

Listening to NMH's 'In An Aeroplane Over The Sea', but I don't really get it. I love most of the album, but I just can't associate it with phrases such as "masterpiece" or "life-changing experience". I can't see it ever becoming a true favourite of mine.

It'd definitely change your life if you were in yr mid-teens, tho - it's THAT kind of album. I think I heard it when I was 16, thought it was the sh*t, but I don't think I've listened to it for years. Of course, I'd probably be able to sing along to it perfectly still. It's that kind of album IME.

Besides, looking for an album to 'change your life' is a bit of a tall order!

Mid-teens as in what? I was 17 when I first heard the album.

You're right though, I was probably expecting too much. What are your favourites on the album? I've always thought 'King of Carrot Flowers 2&3' - 'title track' - 'Two-Headed Boy' to be the record's best section.



Title: Re: The return of the \
Post by: hypehat on May 29, 2013, 04:54:12 AM
Oh sorry, I thought you were listening to it for the first time now!

As far as it changing your life, it's definitely the kind of album you can get very 'into' - it really rewards deep listening which is, at least for me, kind of how I approached music at 15-16, just really soaking up a few songs or albums. That's sorta swapped as I got a bit older, like I listen to a lot of varied stuff not as intently as I listened to NMH, or The Libertines, or that first Arctic Monkeys album, or Spiritualized, or BWPS, or Joy Division, The Clash, or Sgt Pepper or etc... Downloading's sort of ruined that for me.

Also weird is how self-consciously it's presented as a masterpiece nowadays? Like, the CD I have has quotes from various people on Domino  on the back saying how it changed their life (not exactly common among other 'canonical' albums) and like you're saying - you go into expecting YOUR LIFE TO NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.

Man, this is dredging it up - I remember getting really involved with the long, winding acoustic ballads on there, I was listening to a lot of Dylan at the time so it sort of resonated with me on that level too. Gonna listen to it again now - forgot how kinetic it is when it starts, just the explosion of King Of The Carrot Flowers Pt2 & 3.

This morning, I was listening to Reasonable Doubt by Jay-Z - blimey, that's a record. Just highlights how far Jay's fallen off though....

The new Kanye West album, Yeezus. Good god.

It sounds amazing - really brutal minimal production, distorted vox - but he is/is portraying such a unpleasant character at points and it's hard to know how seriously you can take a man snarling 'I AM A GOD/HURRY UP WITH MY DAMN CROISSANTS'. If it's a joke, it's unrelenting.

I think Occams Razor applies - Kanye is an egomaniac who takes far too much cocaine.

Was listening to Smiley Smile earlier this morning. Switched over to Disc 2 of the '93 GV30Years box set. Then around lunch I changed things up a bit and put Rock & Roll Over from Kiss on. Currently listening to Frank Zappa's Joe's Garage ('Crew Slut' is the song currently playing). Who knows what I'll throw on later. I might have to mellow out with 'Friends'. On the other hand, if I'm energetic and still feel like working, maybe I'll put on Motorhead's 'Bomber' album. I love my records and CDs... :afro

Downloaded the album "Stuff" by Bill Wyman on ITunes today from the ITunes cards I got today.

(http://billwyman.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Stuff_300-220x220.jpg)

I listened to it immediately after the download finished. Unfortunately by some distance this is his worst solo album.
There's a reason why it was originally issued only in Japan and Argentina, which is what I realized today.
The title track is quite good, the best song from this album, though that's not saying much. You can listen to it here:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWTrJ08IbXE

It's a shame that this album is quite sh*t. I really enjoyed all of his previous albums: Monkey Grip, Stone Alone, and his self-titled album.
For Bill Wyman and/or Rolling Stones Completists Only!

Got Lorde's 'Pure Heroine' album because I really enjoy her two singles, but it's very underwhelming. I'm starting to wonder more and more if current pop stars actually give a sh*t about the albums they release as a whole, or do they concentrate just on the singles? (not that there's anything wrong with singles as your main artistic priority, it's just that I feel a bit foolish buying the album and finding that nothing even comes even close to the singles, quality-wise.)

M.I.U. Album (I have seen the error of my ways with a few songs, especially Pitter Patter. But the majority still sucks)

Is it possible to be in love with someone's voice? I absolutely adore Sea Oleena, an artist from Montreal (via the Prairies I believe) who records her music entirely via GarageBand. She makes beautiful (and sometimes a bit warped) ethereal pop music and possesses a voice that captures the Romantic notion of beauty: hers is a voice which raises the everyday to the divine, and brings the divine down to earth. She gets compared a lot to Grouper -- another excellent ethereal pop musician -- and you can download her two EPs (for free or by donation) on her Bandcamp (http://seaoleena.bandcamp.com/). She is in the midst of getting her third release completed as well, and her Tumblr has an un-mastered version of one of the tracks, "Paths" (http://seaoleena.tumblr.com/post/67295313094/its-raining-today-and-the-sky-is-unbearably-low), which will appear on Shallow. I think I've probably mentioned her before here but I will do it again since I really do think she deserves a wider audience. She is also currently on week three of a four-week residency at Portals (http://www.portalsmusic.com/2014/01/features/residency-sea-oleena-week-1/) (which is some sort of music blog) where she furnishes some reflections upon the world for consideration.

Listen to "Swimming Story" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ztqBV-yB0g), "Island Cottage" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ut1O6ontgBY) and "Little Army" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ZdUfDXWOTQ) from her first self-titled EP! Her second EP, Sleeplessness, has wonderful songs like "Southbound" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gYP8j2O5ss), "Untitled" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyHrDaDHF04), "Milk" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSzwqb2-K1E), and the song which best captures her successfully bringing divinity earthbound, "Orion's Eyes" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOgk_mx-g1k).

  "Said the People" is a Dinosaur jr epic off FARM. The guitar solos at 3:05 and 5:58 are awe inspiring. I had consigned this band to the dustbin of history but here they are with three good albums in a row, all featuring the original trio of Mascis-Barlow-Murph.

Quote from: John Dewey, 'Experience and Nature' (1925), p. 38
The most serious indictment to be brought against non-empirical philosophies is that they have cast a cloud over the things of ordinary experience. They have not been content to rectify them. They have discredited them at large. In casting aspersion upon the things of everyday experience, the things of action and affection and social intercourse, they have done something worse than fail to give these affairs the intelligent direction they so much need. It would not matter much if philosophy had been reserved as a luxury of only a few thinkers. We endure many luxuries. The serious matter is that philosophies have denied that common experience is capable of developing from within itself methods which will secure direction for itself and will create inherent standards of judgment and value. No one knows how many of the evils and deficiencies that are pointed to as reasons for flight from experience are themselves due to the disregard of experience shown by those peculiarly reflective. To waste of time and energy, to disillusionment with life that attends every deviation from concrete experience must be added the tragic failure to realize the value that intelligent search could reveal and mature among the things of ordinary experience.

It's the only Everly Brothers I own, sadly. Found it in the bottom of a discount bin at Walmart about two years ago.
Anyway, it's a great collection of songs, expect "Ebony Eyes," maybe.

My favorite is undoubtedly "Cathy's Clown" - a magical song. My second favorite (and one I was first introduced to by Harry Nilsson) is "Walk Right Back."
I'll have to look for more of their albums.

^That's the only Everly Bros album I own as well. Love all songs except for the limp 'Lucille'.  The favourite's gotta be 'All I Have To Do Is Dream'.

If Don were isolated from Phil, went along as a separate picture, I'd be thinking it's Laurence Juber, former member of "Wings". Anyway, back on topic, I finally listened to Kirsty Maccoll's debut & when track 11 came on, I was gobsmacked to find out she replicated the Rip Chords' awesome cover of "She Thinks I Still Care", only "he" instead of "she", with the "Blue Moon" guitar solo & spoken bits: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TQKgaPqvAig&feature=kp

I heard plenty versions of it (Del Shannon, John Fogerty, Beck) & they all had the George Jones-sung melody. Having folk & country roots, one would expect that Kirsty would do likewise but instead, she picked some surf band's obscure cover (though there's basically only a lyrical similarity). So cool, that means she's actually been listening to The Rip Chords, loved their cover so much so she then decided to sing the song that way. Compare: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIXNJDmgCGk
The latter wins by a lot - it's too catchy & the background vocals are way superior here.

The Bilinda Butchers, named after the vocalist/guitarist from My Bloody Valentine, are an excellent dream pop group that makes gauzy snythpop and have three EPs and some demos on their Bandcamp -- all for free too!

In particular, you should check out their 2011 EP Regret, Love, Guilt, Dreams...

(http://i.imgur.com/0SxCW4B.jpg) (http://thebilindabutchers.bandcamp.com/album/regret-love-guilt-dreams-ep)

...and the Goodbyes EP from 2012:

(http://i.imgur.com/59DGUs7.jpg) (http://thebilindabutchers.bandcamp.com/album/goodbyes-ep)

They'll have a new album out sometime in 2014, possibly within the next couple months as I read in a recent interview that they're almost ready to send it off for mixing.

I've been listening to this album lately, too.

"Hickory Wind" is a masterpiece of loneliness.

I came upon this split EP with contributions by Yohuna, Emily Reo, MoonLasso, and Brown Bread last night. I had not previously heard of any of these artists but it's an excellent slice of ambient pop music. The music is largely insular, dreamy and synth-based with fleeting female vocals laid over it. There isn't a weak track on the release but I'm particularly taken by Emily Reo's contributions...

I use to love those two albums. I think they came in a two-fer back in the day. But the only song I would listen to was Beck's Bolero. had a Be My Baby -caliber fancy for the bolero. IsThe rest of 'em good? might need to get me some?  :-\ :o

It is an incredible album, as good and intense as anything Led Zeppelin have ever done. Big influence on them too.

Yes!  That brings back memories.  Loved late 70's early 80's UK Rock.  "I Wanna Destroy You" "Kingdom of Love" and "Tonight" are my favorites.  Is "You'll Have to Go Sideways" a rip from Honeyman-Scott's "Space Invader" or just another fad track influenced by the video game?  Robin, in this period, was totally under the spell of Lou Reed and Bowie.  Mostly lost touch after "Balloon Man/Globe of Frogs in the late 80's.
You have Got to check out Wreckless Eric - "Dizzy" and "A Pop Song" (Live from Countdown, Australia 1980) - both are on Youtube.  Oh, and The Records - one of the best UK Power Pop bands from the early 80's.  Their first album Shades in Bed was a classic.  And listen to the EP from those sessions.

Beatles - The Inner Light.

Absolutely beautiful - I've never understood why so many Beatles fans dislike George's Indian-influenced songs.
I thought George's best recordings were with The Beatles.  He got so few, so they were all Top Tracks.  The mystical numbers were some of his Best.  The last Capitol 45, "Lady Madonna"/"Inner Light" is in my top five favorite Beatles 45s.  I prefer the Mono "Inner Light" - but the stereo "Lady Madonna"
I like Ravi, but in small doses.  After twenty minutes or so I want to play something else.
Jeff Beck Group - Huge fan of any of the first four.  If I had too choose the Best:  Beck-Ola and Rough and Ready.  I like the BB&A as well. I do not think they are any better than Led Zeppelin though.  You might convince me that Jeff was a better guitar player, but I don't see that he influenced Jimmy.  I believe Page was doing sessions, important sessions, before Beck came on the scene.  Find the book  And on piano...Nicky Hopkins.  It explains some of the pre-'66 period of English session cats.  Jimmy was, Beck was not.  Beck's connection to Mickie Most did bring Jeff Beck Group in on the Donovan May 1969 Barabajagal sessions.  Good picks Ovi.

Interesting thoughts, feelsflow. Lady Madonna/Inner Light is indeed amazing. Regarding Harrison, just a while ago I was debating with myself whether I'd take his Beatles contributions over the stuff on All Things Must Pass, the album. I still don't think I've reached a conclusion.

Regarding The Jeff Beck Group, I've yet to hear other of their albums, so I can't pronounce myself yet. All I can say is that these I'd much rather listen to them than to Led Zeppelin, having overdosed on the latter in my early days of 'rock' fandom. Not the band's fault by any means, of course.

Camper Van Beethoven - Good Guys & Bad Guys (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMLusdmYqmA) - after listening to variety of their songs in variety of genres, I can safely say that this folk-ska number is my go-to favorite. It's filled with optimism & laid-back summery feel (even though I don't like summer), there are lots of instruments, including dominant fiddle & what seems to be accordion, also guitars, synths, drums. Now the vocal: whenever I listen to the song I catch myself thinking that it is strikingly similar to that of (Stephen Newcombe). You know, the guy from the Smiley board. So, do check it, fun & groove reassured. [The band rules, in general.]

THE BEST:

(http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/_/66059548/Good+Morning+Judge.jpg)


Quote from: allmusic
Recorded in informal sessions with blues archivist George Mitchell in 1967 (except for two songs recorded in similar circumstances in 1962), Good Morning Judge captures the aging Furry Lewis in fine and relaxed form, casually spinning out some of the most hypnotic acoustic blues ever captured by modern recording equipment.
Stretching out his songs in a manner he couldn't have managed on his 78s of the 1920s, Lewis plays powerfully elemental slide guitar (the title cut sounds like something John Fahey could spend his whole life trying to re-create) and sings with a force that's both subtle and powerfully compelling.
Unlike a great many veteran country blues artists who were rediscovered in the 1960s, Lewis' later recordings are in many ways just as compelling as the records he cut in his youth, and Good Morning Judge finds him conjuring a deep and powerful spell with the simplest of aural materials.
Superb stuff.

Cool ass live recording on t.v.  Sounds just like the record, maybe they faked it.

"The Ballad of El Goodo" by Big Star. At 1st I thought it has a very distinctive Beatles sound, esp. that iconic guitar intro. Either way, the song is incredibly beautiful, love the band & Alex Chilton's medium soft singing.

Inspired by the Punk Appreciation thread, the Bass Favorites thread, and Favorite Album Of All-Time thread, I dug out some Slade. While they were more glam than punk, they still had a lot of punk in them. Jim Lea was a great bass player and songwriter. And, Slayed is a hidden classic; you rarely see it mentioned in album polls.

Check out this video of Slade's "Cum On Feel The Noize". It's so cheesy it's classic. And, how I miss Noddy:  http://youtu.be/rftnB33goIg

Great album.  The people bashing this are absolutely hysterical.  It must be some music fan disease to hate the person who writes the songs in their beloved bands.  You see it with VU fans and Lou Reed's solo career, Brian Eno fanboys who only like the first 2 Roxy Music albums, and Pixies fans who can't deal with anything after Doolittle.  Frank Black is a monster talent.

All great albums, but I think Mark of the Mole, Tunes of Two Cities, and Wormwood are even better.  Demons Dance Alone is also wonderful.  And while they kept making albums, I think largely they became more of a theatrical/performance group once they began touring, rather than a group making albums as their main focus.  The 70s albums are wildly creative and excellent, but they are also largely crude attempts at imitating Frank Zappa and a few of their other heroes.  They really began finding their voice around Eskimo and the Mole stuff, which of course paved the way for Wormwood, Freak Show, Cube-E, etc.  That early phase with the original lineup has a charming cockiness, but they became confident later on.  That's the stuff with real depth.

I've been listening to some of our locals this afternoon.  My Brother Woody has a great album he put out in 2007.  Go give it a listen.  Love "Getting Old Goes with Getting Fat" - He nails the Nilsson sound.  "I Only Like Songs With Bops, Oohs and Aahs" - is Beach Boys '67/'68 perfect.
And spent over a hour on SoundCloud playing zachrwolfe, EgoHanger1966 and rab2591 together and alone.  We've got some great music right here at this forum.
Right now I have Jobim's Wave album on.

Is it really the song's title? I'm gonna give it a listen, sounds like a very nice tribute to The BBs (harmonies). Speaking of our locals, this is how I think the pairings should be:

rab-Woodstock (I heard that "Ceremony" song & it hit me that they fit together more than if it were Woodstock with Zach or rab with Ego or EoL with rab)
Zach-Ego (the most organic duet imo)
EoL (aka mypetsounds)-Swedish Frog (these 2 have kinda similar writing style, so why not give it a chance?)

But in the end, they're all e-friends.

Jeffrey Foskett-"Thru My Window" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YSezk43b8_E) (shameless IKTAA rip-off but I still think it's fantastic, 2nd to none in Jeff's catalog. Lots of earworms. Then I like his cover of Shoes tune "Your Very Eyes". Not on Youtube, but the original is. utterly beautiful)

The full performance (w/introduction by Richard Pryor) of the Jackson 5 on the Motown 25 special. I had only seen the Billie Jean performance before, and I know how much it's lauded and all,but I didn't quite appreciate it that much until I saw it in context, with the Jackson 5 songs beforehand and everything, which just makes it so much cooler. Much more experiential, or whatever it is...

  Jan & Dean - The DRAG CITY/POP SYMPHONY twofer CD. DRAG came out the same time as LITTLE DEUCE COUPE. The first Rock & Roll concept albums? (Could "Dead Man's Curve" be the first rock opera?) POP SYMPHONY could be considered a vanity project, but all these years later it serves as a calling card for Jan Berry's talents. A nice mood record.

I don't know if it's that revisionist.  Some of us disliked them back then.  Honestly, I'm more surprised at all the fuss made over them now, but I guess that's the POV of someone who thinks they're overrated, just as you seem to find them underrated.  Hope you're enjoying the reissues, though.

I'm listening to Paul Heaton and Jaqui Abbott's 2014 new cd called - What Have We Become.  Excellent.  Best release of 2014 as far as I am concerned.  Paul Heaton was the leader of The Beautiful South and The Housemartins for those that recall him.  This is his 4 or 5th solo cd but his solo career thus far has been quite patchy.  This is a killer return to form.  Check out the songs D.I.Y., Moulding of a Fool, What Have We Become to get a sample of the goodness within.

Is it just me or is "Van Dyke Parks" VDP's own reinterpretation of "Surf's Up"?  The sinking Titanic being another metaphor for civilization, which is taken over by a wave.

Oasis - What's The Story Morning Glory. I gotta say, I'm completely dumbfounded by the amount of negative, revisionist reviews this album gets, particularly on Rate Your Music. I think it's still fantastic, one of those records that almost reads like a greatest hits compilation, just like Thriller or Nevermind.

I don't know if it's that revisionist.  Some of us disliked them back then.  Honestly, I'm more surprised at all the fuss made over them now, but I guess that's the POV of someone who thinks they're overrated, just as you seem to find them underrated.  Hope you're enjoying the reissues, though.

I'm sure some disliked them back then, but were the opinions as polarizing when the band was at its peak ('94/'95) as they were after? With so many people calling them Beatles rip-offs with absolute no merit? I'm actually asking, not having lived through it.

Listening to Dylan's Positively 4th Street at the moment.

Big Pink has that magic only the most timeless songs have...objectively, it's the best one. The only thing missing in Richard's Organ part (Garth is on piano here), which was played in concert by Garth.

Live at the Academy December 30 is just an amazing performance of the song - The Band at their best sounds like 5 musicians projecting their entire souls through their voices and instruments - that's what this version is. My favorite.

The Last Waltz version has the Staple Singers, which is amazing. But Richard either isn't playing piano in the chorus or he was edited out...and that brings it down a notch for me.

I don't think I'm familiar with the Academy version (it's not the Rock of Ages one, is it?), but I think you're spot-on on the Last Waltz one - the song just isn't the same without that little piano run that leads the verses into the chorus. It's always about the little touches when it comes to The Band.

In the original version of The Weight, you can hear Richard's organ part VERY FAINTLY in the background during the bridge. Drives me nuts they took it out, though they apparently did release a version in 2005 that apparently 'restored' the original organ, but I have yet to hear it cuz I can't find it anywhere....

What is your opinion of Baby I Love You?

I love it, but then again I love when Ramones do pop ballads (Needles & Pins, Questioningly, Danny Says etc). It obviously doesn't outdo the original (how can you outdo perfection?), but it showcases Joey's voice, has a nice arrangement, and fits the "do you remember..." theme of the album.

The 49 Minute Technicolour Dream LP (Various Artists)
Side One:
1. Black Mass- Jason Crest
2. The Wedding Of Ramona Blair- The Mirage
3. Baby Your Phrasing Is Bad- Caleb
4. Flight From Ashiya- Kaleidoscope
5. Matrimonial Fears- The Cymabaline
6. On The Beach- Finders Keepers
7. The Cooks Of Cake And Kindness- The Californians
Side Two:
1. Strange Things Are Happening- Rings & Things
2. Butterfly- The Fox
3. 3:30AM-  Unit 4+2
4. A Dream For Julie- Kaleidoscope
5. Come Alive- Tempus Fugit
6. Golden Glass- The Misunderstood

I just picked this up on vinyl at Armageddon Records in Providence Rhode Island. Really groovy collection of underground psychedelic 60's groups, none of which I've ever heard of before except for Kaleidoscope. I'm in the process of enjoying it right now. I really dig the classy pop of THE CALIFORNIANS, but not too crazy about the pseudo satanic JASON CREST song. Most of this album is excellent psych! Interesting side-note about the band FINDERS KEEPERS, they featured future Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes.

Is the 1st song entirely psychedelic. Because the title is very telling in terms of surf rock.
I love "A Dream for Julie" very much! The guitar intro & solo are fantastic! And of course, Peter's voice (rare case when I actually like British accent).

I love "A Dream for Julie" very much! The guitar intro & solo are fantastic! And of course, Peter's voice (rare case when I actually like British accent).

I thought it was strange that a band called Finders Keepers, who have a song called On The Beach, sounded nothing like surf music. I really like the song though. It's got that harpsichordish keyboard thing going on. And the background vocals include a falsetto singer. I can hear a little bit of a 1966 Brian Wilson influence on Finders Keepers, but they remind me more of a Strawberry Alarm Clock/Orpheus/Electric Prunes sorta Psych Pop/Rock. Cool stuff!

And I agree about the intro in A Dream For Julie. Incredible stuff! My favorite Kaleidoscope song is Further Reflections In The Room Of Percussion. Total '67 Psych Out!

The Velvet Underground Live 1993 album.  Awesome performance, it's too bad the reunion didn't last.  Love John Cale singing the Nico songs.  While it might be sacrilege to say so, I prefer it to the Live 1969 and Max's Kansas City albums.  The latter lacked Moe Tucker and both lacked John Cale, not to mention that both of those albums were recorded in very lacking sound quality.  It's so great to hear all four of the originals playing the best of their entire catalogue to an large and incredibly appreciative audience.

Two things really sticking in my head and getting repeated listens so far this morning.

Eric Carmen's "Hey Deanie," the best Beach Boys song of the '70s not to be a Beach Boys song.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCTSqFHEEEQ

And, maybe because it's Independence Day in the US, Brother Ali's "Letter To My Countrymen," which actually chokes me up a little bit, a nice combination of idealism, criticism, and optimism (from a hometown artist).

Great movie.

One of my absolute favorite movies. Malick is one hell of a director. And, have to agree with Lowbacca, it's one of Zimmer's best scores.

I need to buy Badlands and Days of Heaven. The former I rent from the library every once in awhile. The latter is always on TV.  I love those films.

Days of Heaven is great. I haven't seen Badlands though - is that one worth buying? I'm hesitant given the subject of the film...

If you liked Days of Heaven you'll like Badlands. It's not a the Charles Starkweather-story, if that's what your getting at...it's real purdy and everything, just like Days Of HEaven....
is this a subtle nod to the "can't enjoy the Chalres Manson" threads ...  ???

Haha no, just didn't know if the movie was solely about murder. I'll definitely check it out!

It's a great one for sure. I'm not the world's biggest Of Montreal fan, but some of the melodies are fantastic. Do you rank it higher than 'Hissing Fauna...' ?


Title: Re: The return of the \

That's a difficult question for me. The musical highlights of Hissing Fauna... are as high as anything the band has ever done, with "Heimdalsgate" to me the undeniable gem. Obviously it is also their real commercial breakthrough (if you can call going from small cult following to substantial indie following a breakthrough ... it got them into larger venues anyway), and its personal-confessional lyrics seem to have brought something a lot of people value. But personally I don't value confessional lyrics any more than storytelling: autobiographical art is no better than third-person art. And while I enjoyed the foray into funk and electronics--begun with a little bit of controversy on Satanic Panic, actually, with people flipping out over the drum machines on "Disconnect the Dots" when it was released in advance of the album!--I'm a popster at heart.

Further, there is also one's own experience with the music. It was special seeing the first Satanic Panic shows at First Ave ... 7th Street Entry, not mainroom. There were maybe 50 people there, which was a HUGE improvement over their Adhils Arboretum or interim tours, so I was pretty excited. I remember asking Kevin before the show (easy to do in those days) whether they'd be doing "Lysergic Bliss" and being astonished he said yeah, they'd do it all, including the vocal breakdown. (And they did, though the second time around on that tour they did it mostly instrumentally.) BP was newly back in the band. It was just great.

So yes, I'd say I rate it higher than Hissing Fauna, but they're probably both in my top 15 of the century, so it's no critique on the latter. (And no, my top 15 albums of the century isn't all of Montreal...)

Agreed - I can't go very long before needing to hear, say, "Climb The Ladder" again.  Some great stuff on there.

  Awesome. "This Is the Story" (studio set) has a nice layered sound.

 I'm listening to THE BEST OF SLEEPY JOHN ESTES on Yahoo. A distinctive singer with an insightful perspective. Sleepy John was from West Tennessee; wonder if he ever crossed paths with Elvis?

It's still a fabulous album, though. Don't let your opinion be skewed by its audience (current, original, or any in-between or yet to come). To me it is the most powerful album of the past 25 years, at least as far as I can recall off the top of my head.

Post by: the captain on August 02, 2014, 03:27:58 PM
Object to as opposed to just dislike? That's a pretty interesting and strong statement. I'd love to hear more.

As for the last track, I don't find it boring at all, which is funny in that I'm a pop-song lover: once something gets more than about 2:45, 3:00, I start getting pretty antsy. For me, the atmosphere (kudos to R. Schneider for his production and the band), the lyrics, and Mangum's oddly glorious bleating voice* do the trick.


*It almost reminds me of that type of church singing where the congregation sings in parts, but not with the nuance or vibrato of traditional western singing. I can't think of what they call it, but basically they just bust out the notes, full force. It has a similar timbre to Mangum's.

I love the lyrics. I mean, I have no idea what most are about, but for me it's all about how they fit in with the music and how they are sung. Every visual image they paint seems to carry such emotion for the protagonist, like he's singing about the darkest of the moments he's been through, like he's revealing everything there is to know about himself and you can hear the pain he's going through to to achieve that. And then the truth comes out, but it's not what you expect - it's confused and twisted in a million forms. The protagonist is even more emotionally damaged than the one in say, Pet Sounds, but he can't even put his finger properly on what it is that's confusing him and that he has to deal with (his childhood? religion and spirituality? Anne Frank's story?). I agree with captain that it's a very, very powerful record, perhaps next to only 'Definitely Maybe' in my list of favourite 90's alums.

With the news that the recently reunited That Dog. is making a new album, I am going back through their '90s output.  One of my favorite bands - nothing hits the spot like hard-charging overdriven power pop centered around three-part female vocal harmonies and a guitar/bass/drums/violin lineup.

In preparation for two Neutral Milk Hotel gigs I'm getting lost in In the Aeroplane Over the Sea again and falling back in love.

John Denver should be a part of every well rounded evening.

Gonna have to agree wholeheartedly. The opening bars of "Annie's Song" or "Fly Away" just make me forget my worries and put me in a good place.

TOUCH (self titled debut 1968)

I took a chance on this LP. I found it at a used record store for $5. I had to have it because the album cover had such a cool psychedelic gatefold I figured this would be right up my alley. I was correct! Very psychedelic and prog. Former Kingsmen keyboardist D. Gallucci is a vital member in this band, being the writer of most of the album's material. But nothing on this album sounds like the Kingsmen. More like Yes or King Crimson. And this self-titled Touch album predates both Crimson's and Yes's debuts making this arguably the first official prog album (debatable). Anyway I highly recommend this LP to anybody who likes early psych-prog. Gallucci sure plays the hell out of his keyboard on this record. Awesome stuff!

I think this is the only album this band ever made.

I liked it. Liked Holding On For Life the first time I heard it on the radio back in November -- awesome Bee Gees embodiment there, dude. But I never got around to hearing the album until now.I haven't heard their first record . How's that one?

Not a huge fan but there were about 3 songs I really liked, incl Holding on for Life. Also the title track.

It's a great album. If you liked the sophomore, get the debut. It's a near perfect production for what it is. You'll know what I mean when you put it on (even if you don't like it).

Get a few hours sleep - you'll be fresh, all messed up and ready to go by tonight.  It's Saturday...
I've been pulling out old early 80's vinyl records this week.  The Records, Radio Stars, xtc - a great decade for music.  Also just got the Dream Academy anthology (CD), haven't listened to them in awhile.  One of my favorite Records tracks. http://youtu.be/Xk44tE32-wQ

The lyrics deal with many themes, few of them are "sad". Likewise, not many songs feature vocoder lead-vocals - Pharrell, Paul Williams, Todd Edwards, Panda Bear and Julian Casablancas all take the vocal duty in their assigned songs. But that's fine, you play the album for the laughs and I'll play it to remind myself once in a while that it's still one of the best released this decade and maybe even Daft Punk's crowning achievement.

Oops. Now I feel guilty. Still, it did get me to visit your wonderful website so something good came of it after all... 

I'm glad you liked it. But please give Random Access Memories another chance.  ;D
OK, I'll make it my next late-at-night/early-in-the-morning album. i do remember being impressed with the Panda Bear track, so there'a hope for me yet.
On the subject of "Doin' It Right": Theoretically it's in F sharp but the bass note of that chord, which starts the sequence, is G sharp! There's isn't an F sharp in the bass anywhere. Most unusual...

If it still doesn't do anything for you, you could always try the Strongbad version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tsa4ogtBiv0
Haha. Sorry, Amanda, but ten seconds was enough for me. RAM sounds so much better now----actually, it has gone up in my opinion since the last listen. :=)   

I guess I'm the only one whose favorite circa 2004 time waster was Homestar Runner cartoons.  :P

It's definitely not made to be listened to all the way through, but just the fact that someone did it is genius.

Hey, Ovi, I'm not trying to get into the lame Blur v. Oasis thing, but had to ask if you're a Blur fan?  I've been listening to a ton of Damon Albarn and saw your post.  For my money he's the most talented musician of his time, with a range going from pop/rock to opera and film scores, all of it wonderful.  In a league of talent with the Beatles and Paul McCartney, really, not that the comparisons are necessary.  I feel he's probably tried to push himself outside of pop/rock a bit more than Paul, too.  It's a shame he's barely known in the US and doesn't seem to be viewed as much of a talent, though I find Dr. Dee and his cowritten score for Ravenous to be especially moving.  Perhaps people are suspicious of his gift for melody, since many music fans have a snobbishness toward anything which seems "pop."  Either way, it is their loss.  He's given us an incredible body of work which keeps growing.

Jethro Tull 'Stand Up', in honor of recently deceased Glen Cornick. What an incredible bass player Cornick was. While listening to the Stand Up album earlier I was mesmerized by his playing on tracks like Bouree and Jeffrey Goes To Leicester Square. Excellent stuff.

Hi. Blur is one of those bands that I really need to get into as soon as possible, as I haven't heard anything from them. Song #2 gets constant play at one club I frequent, but I doubt that's really representative for their work (although I do think it is a great song).

Was Syd Barrett - The Madcap Laughs (caught part of Neutral Milk Hotel's Dog Headed Boy on an indie net station & that reminded me of Syd - due to listening to Oh Lord earlier (Brian & Dennis) was suddenly very aware Jeff Mangum goes into shouty Brian 'style' in places.) Dark Globe still emotionally stabs me right in the heart.
Followed by The Velvet Underground - The Gift because the guitar texture & buried spoken words of Syd's No Man's Land reminded me of it (sending yourself in the post is a very, very bad idea)

right now thanks to a random oldies station: The Carpenters - Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft. (love this & there's a gorgeous happy hardcore remix on youtube, that just makes me giddily happy)

Always loved the melodic elements as well as the rawness of this record. Sounds like it was recorded & mixed on a primitive set up. It's also possibly the last huge hit record to be mixed in mono.

And it's fantastic stuff! Of course it sounds like Beach Boy music. It's available on amazon. I recommend it! I couldn't find any links to any of their original tunes...but here's one from last night's gig. The Driftwoods doing Marcella http://youtu.be/oROiWD6-CxU

Best parts:

1) The dense backing track. Minus a few touches, not too dissimilar to a BW instrumental circa '64-'65
2) Frankie's falsetto in the beginning of the last verse (key modulation)
3) Great tag!!

For me it's gotta be Tumbleweed Connection followed by Honky Chateau tied with Madman Across the Water. Now obviously Goodbye Yellow Brick Road has some of his best stuff (title track, Bennie and the Jets, Roy Rogers, Candle in the Wind, Funeral for a Friend etc.), but I find the aforementioned three more consistent throughout. I still have some catching up to do when it comes to his 70's stuff, but so far not one album I've heard from that decade has disappointed.


Title: Re: The return of the "What are you listening to now?" thread
Post by: MugginsXO on September 25, 2014, 09:32:51 AM
Some things I have been listening to:  

Demarco – Bad Gyal Anthem (Explicit)

(http://i.imgur.com/uCfruiv.jpg?1)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VZ5KO8EcKY

The Dancehall guys rarely have good videos and this is no exception. There is something charming about how little they care to disguise the overtly sexual images and performances in fancy lighting or quality cinematography. Demarco has had a string of high quality tracks with great hooks and good production. I also very much enjoyed Allergic To Bad Mind Friend (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mXYnP13-3Y) and his quite strange kind of cover of Lorde’s Royals, called Loyal (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7ZY764TtVs). These videos for some reason or other reference the previous single before laying into the new one so skip ahead a bit for the track.

Shatta Wale – Everybody Likes My Tin

(http://i.imgur.com/io6WB5R.jpg?1)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48YW53TPbhw

This fellow from Ghana has more style. Very catchy song and a pretty friendly video.

The Weeknd – King of The Fall (Explicit)

(http://i.imgur.com/rbGVJEU.png?1)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXBcwyMUrcU

Comparing this video to the Demarco ones above shows just how far R&B and Rap have come in visualising what can seem like a rather superficially sexualised world. The Weeknd is at the front of the new R&B for many reasons but one of them is how perfectly he expresses his world – or the world of his character – as equal parts seductive and terrifying. This is Noir. King of The Fall is as aggressive and hard edged a song as he has released, but it still has that great hook and a Michael Jackson level vocal. Unusual references to reality in the last verse, including a reference to the producer of House of Balloons and Thursday Doc McKinney as being the Quincy Jones to his Michael Jackson. A possible and amusing knock at PARTYNEXTDOOR on the following line. Filmed in Toronto.  

Gallant – Manhattan

(http://i.imgur.com/XdYHHtN.jpg?1)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uPuY4y6rjA

There has been a lot of great new R&B in the last while. This includes a whole load of smaller folks making the same kind of atmospheric, fresh tone, genre-hybrid stuff that resurrected a basically dead genre. This has got that soaring chorus and   Along with Shy Girls (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXX7YIC5vJU), this guy is one of my favourite guys yet to drop an album. He has released an EP Zebra which is really rather good and worth your time.

Blood Orange – You’re Not Good Enough

(http://i.imgur.com/v5g80Mg.jpg?1)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gtdpnKbT10

Not really sold on the album but this is nice.

Kelela – Bank Head

(http://i.imgur.com/dBDolWA.jpg?1)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0q9LcifnTV4

Her voice has got that Janet Jackson flavour. The whole album is brilliant. Hopefully going to be one of the best in the years to come. Excited to see what she does next.

Trey Songz – Cake

(http://i.imgur.com/80NQncw.jpg?1)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-r9K_8CvorI

Trey Songz has kind of fallen between two eras of R&B and was unlucky to appear a bit too early to reap the new wave of artists and ideas. I always found he had it in him to do great single tracks but never quite got on board with his albums. While not a masterpiece I think Trigga is enjoyable from start to finish, with Cake being particularly good.

Have been going chronologically through GnR's discography and I gotta say this pretty much disappointed me. I loved both Appetite and Lies, but the only track here that surprised me positively is Coma (November Rain and Don't Cry are great too of course, but I was already familiar with those).

That (and Illusion II) was the first album I ever was aware of release date in advance and bought right away. I listened to them (on cassette) straight through, devouring liner notes as I went, at my grandma's house, as she lived in the larger town where I bought them. (My hometown was so small it had no record stores.)

Coma blew me away, though it's not my style anymore.

Interesting - what was your first impression of the album as a whole, compared to Appetite? What about after repeated listens? And do you still listen to/like it?

More than anything, it was overwhelming and slightly confusing. The albums cover a lot of ground, from punky to bluesy to epic to bizarre. I thought it opened weakly, with "Right Next Door to Hell" sounding like an inferior Appetite song to me, "Dust n Bones" just not up to par, and then a cover in "Live and Let Die." "Don't Cry" at the time struck me as really good, though. The whole experience was like that for me: this is great, that's ok, that's not very good, I don't know what they're doing here, this is brilliant again. There could have been an album approaching Appetite's quality--though probably not impact, just because that felt like it came out of nowhere--but the sprawl didn't allow that.

It was such a weird time for them, coming off tremendous success, shuffling personnel, obviously with Axl just taking full control of the direction of the band, and the music industry suffering the heart attack of Seattle / "grunge."

I can't say I listen to these on anything near a regular basis anymore. I'm not even sure I still have the CDs (that eventually replaced the initially purchased cassettes). But here and there I'll listen and enjoy something. Appetite is another story: it remains an essential album, one of the best of the '80s.

Art Official Age is really quite good. First I like the Lianna La Haves narration and general off-beat sci-fi concept. I love Clouds as a track but even more so that Prince finally, FINALLY had the good sense to actually do something with a current talented artist who is not just some mediocre protege sleeping in his bed. Following on from the track he did with Janelle Monae and rumours that he could be doing something with Kendrick Lamar it seems that the purple bubble might be letting in some fresh air. Hell there is a modern flavour on the album overall that is entirely welcome. The Gold Standard is indeed very pleasing and could be the best track on here. I also like Time for being a kind of a modern LoveSexy ambient jam. FunkNRoll has a nice beat.

Listening to Plectrum Electrum now and is serving as a fine counterpoint. Not a stinking protege album luckily but a BAND album. They have some sauce.

Interesting but of course he's done that before, and not always with his girlfriends (though admittedly usually). Remember Rave Un2 the Joy Fantastic, which had Chuck D, Eve, Sheryl Crow, Ani DiFranco, and Gwen Stefani, as well as a few people who had been outsiders but he brought into his circle on a recurring basis, like Maceo Parker and Larry Graham.

Speaking of, that makes me want to listen to that album again. It's 15 years old and I don't think I've listened to it in 14 years.

Anyway, I'll be listening to both the new Prince releases, as I always end up doing. Usually I buy them. Chalk it down to hometown optimism, maybe, but he's so damn gifted I always think the next album is going to be brilliant. Then usually there is a good song or two and plenty of great performances of mediocre material.


Title: Re: The return of the \
Post by: MugginsXO on September 28, 2014, 10:30:52 AM
This to be fair seems far less cynical an effort to nab sales than Rave. The thing is that he didn't write or produce the track for Janelle Monae. He just showed up and did a guest shot, he let go of his ego and served someone else's track. I don't know when that last happened but it's been a fair while. His need for control over everything has diminished his ability to produce and work with great artists thought the years. The people who have given him that complete control have almost always been mediocre talents. And none of em except The Time have had any legs. If he can learn to have a real collaboration instead of dictating from on high, he could do some special things with the people around now.

Maceo and Larry for sure but both have been - especially Larry - part of his inner circle.


Title: Re: The return of the "What are you listening to now?" thread
Post by: the captain on September 28, 2014, 10:38:24 AM
Re Maceo and Larry, remember they weren't part of his inner circle before that era. So really, you could argue they became part of his inner circle by working with him. Maybe that becomes a chicken-egg situation, as to whether collaborators became inner circle or vice versa. The same actually could be said about Wendy and Lisa and other members of the Revolution. The legend of the time and afterward was that Prince was the Revolution, and they just played parts live, but I think history has shown that was more a real band than people assumed at times. (Not to say he wasn't the obvious genius, leader, primary writer, and performer of many parts...just not the full-on autocrat.)

As to the cynical grabs for major sales, I think he has probably come to terms with the fact that there's not going to be any such thing anymore. Maybe I'm wrong on that, but realistically that's just not going to happen again after all these years in "legend/oldie" status with younger audiences. Then again, his new band is all young women and he's not opposed to a good publicity ploy, so maybe he's still delusional in that respect.

Lastly, I am depressed because I misread your earlier post regarding his collaboration with Monae (whom I love). For some reason, I was thinking you were saying that in addition to the track he helped her with on her album, that she was on his album. Then your last post made me do a double-take and reread, and you're just referring to his contribution to her album, that there is no second track (on his). Damn. Because while I was underwhelmed to that track on her album, I love the idea of those two together. Two amazing talents.

Post by: MugginsXO on September 28, 2014, 10:47:31 AM
Agreed on the change from the leader, producer, writer accepting of input to the guy who couldn't really take any. There was definitely a big change when The Revolution got thrown out. The NPG was a real band for a time but then just became the name of whoever played with him. I think that really harmed his ability to self-criticise. The stories around his treatment of Rosie Gaines are really ridiculous.

I think for a long time he only allowed people within the circle who would be compliant to his approach to things. Larry was a slightly different case seeing how much (in my opinion negative) impact be had on his life and work. To be able to jam with a great artist though who doesn't agree with his beliefs/religion/attitude to modern music can create some much needed conflict and self-criticism. He has been in that "we are the only ones making real music" nonsense for very long. Prince was best when competitive. To get back to a competitve level he needs to realise how many good things are happening in music right now. Working with Lianna is cool. Working with Janelle is cool. Hopefully he does more of it.

Only a few tracks are on US Spotify and iTunes for purchase) so far, albums both out Sept 30.

I think this board might need a Prince thread. There is one from 2006 or something. Maybe it should be resurrected so we don't fill this one with him. But this little chat has inspired me to think about doing a "post-Golden [Purple?] Era" playlist. Something demonstrating that if the quality was uneven, the highs were still high. We'll see. But for now, I'm going grave-digging (in the thread sense, not literally...).

The weakest of his albums but still has a good few superior tracks. The title track (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXyRlbivWek) is vicious smooth and the vocoder/talkbox outro is dead on it. Slow It Down (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPwkzdYN4JE) was the most joyful song of 2013 and my favourite of last year. A pity the album isn't quite on the level of these songs.

This is by far my favourite of this morning though. Used to be in a duo called Floetry which wrote for Michael Jackson and did good work. Really strong material all the way through.

The weakest of his albums but still has a good few superior tracks. The title track (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qXyRlbivWek) is vicious smooth and the vocoder/talkbox outro is dead on it. Slow It Down (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPwkzdYN4JE) was the most joyful song of 2013 and my favourite of last year. A pity the album isn't quite on the level of these songs.

The Dream's first album is a classic!

Just now, was listening to Scott Walker's new album Soused, made in collaboration with Sunn 0))) the Seattle drone-metal band.  After his previous record Bisch Bosch, which was more of a bizarre comedy album than a piece of music, this is somewhat more conservative sounding....although only relatively speaking.  It's kind of like what would have happened if Scott, back in 1972, had decided that he'd try to compete with Black Sabbath and Deep Purple instead of doing what he actually did, which was to record two sorta country albums.

The album holds together as a piece better than any of his others I think. Make Up Bag/Sex Intelligent/Yamaha are forever pleasing to me. Yamaha in particular is one of the great R&B songs of the last decade. So very Prince.

This is a great Jerry Lewis track. Or, it coulda' been....a
There are *two* instrumental breaks --both of them feature 'old-tyme' dixieland  clarinets where you can barely hear any piano. That is perverse.

This is my first non-greatest hits album by them. PRetty good stuff I think . I can't decide if I should play it once more right away here.... it's quite short I probably should. IT's got that Alice Cooper-sound.  guitars? sound  great. Well played . And well recorded ,yet not too busy, either.
am I ashamed I waited so long to dive in ? No - Greatest Hits is just that good . Maybe I'll renounce Live It to Death even, just to prove it! and I'll return to a sheltered existence once more!!

A couple of things today.

Cooly G - Wait Til Night

Just out the other day. I wanted to like this more than I did. Never took off and only a couple of tracks where I got into it at all. I liked some of her earlier stuff I heard but this wasn't great. Might give it another go tomorrow.

Wait Till Night (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmq47ciNuSk)

(http://i.imgur.com/Nje7H9B.jpg)

MellowHype - Numbers

Listening to this. A couple of the Odd Future associated people, featuring Frank Ocean, Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler doing a bit of production. You know what? This is really fucking good. Opening track suggests that things are going to be pretty standard and boring hollow bragging but then the thing opens up and throws a whole bunch of different sounds at you. Engaging as all hell.

Not underrated here (Minnesota, their home territory). If anything, they're overrated here, treated like an all-time great, essential band. I like them, but not on that "legendary" level.

Agreed. That's a great song. Nearly freaked first time I heard it. When I heard it on the radio - actually, I stopped freaking out, it was that good. If I would have been driving a car and listening to Wink Martendale I would've pulled my car RIGHT over.

I think I've said this before here, but maybe not. Video Games is one of the few songs I specifically remember first hearing. I was headed to a friend's apartment in Uptown listening to our public radio music station (The Current) and it came on just as I was pulling up. Not sure whether I liked or disliked it, I finished my horrific parallel parking and sat there with the car on until the song ended. Because it wasn't the final song of the set, they didn't say who the artist was, so I had to look it up afterward.

Dig the Lana Del Ray convo happening. My favourite song of hers is definitely 'Shades of Cool' off her last album - I'm usually not a big fan of her singing style, but the way her voice goes up during parts of the song is just ecstatic. Something very unique about it.

As for the thread, been listening to some hip-hop today:

Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back
Public Enemy - Fight the Power (song)
Eminem - Lose Yourself (song)
Kanye West - The College Dropout

Because it wasn't the final song of the set, they didn't say who the artist was, so I had to look it up afterward.
I enjoy these experiences even more than when they do say who it is . Delayed gratification + the thrill(or mild curiosity) of discovery = a nice waste of time

Agreed. They are also increasingly rare. We know more, sooner, and get into (ocean/deschanel/musgraves-hating) frenzies when we're not fully gifted everything immediately. There was (and is) some fun in slower, step-by-step discovery.

I still love The Shepherd's Dog the most--ranking it among the best 10-15 albums of the millenium, probably--but have probably unfairly neglected this.

I think the last one is better. I do not care for the false funk rock near the end of the album. The appeal for me of Iron & Wine was never really the quality of song writing but the particular atmosphere evoked by the recording/vocal style. Not an ideological thing but nothing since the first album has entranced in a similar/superior fashion. Saw him live and he had unnecessary sax honking all over. A bit distressing.

I really love Our Endless Numbered Days, so I guess I was looking for more of that, but I did not care for Kiss Each Other Clean when I listened to it.

I might be the only person on this earth--aside from presumably the artist and his producer--who think he has been improving, certainly well past those earlier recordings like Our Endless Numbered Days. I thought I&W was fine earlier on, but to me the fuller arrangements and shinier production were a boon. (As I said before, though, I must admit The Shepherd's Dog takes the cake so far.)

The thing for me was and is that what I get out of his music is not really connected to its relative sophistication. I am not perturbed by the change in sound because I was never invested in him in that way. The first album had a sound and atmosphere that is worth more to me than his ability or development as a song writer. It has an identity. It has an importance in my brain, he does not particularly. A selfish thing but a firm reason why I wouldn't pencil in the time it takes to hear what his idea of rock sounds like.

I don't think it's selfish, we all have to make those decisions and prioritize. There's no way to listen to everything and there's no sense in wasting out limited years in what we decide are fruitless pursuits.

Frankly I just went the opposite direction. I wouldn't have bothered with another earlier-sounding record, but Shepherds Dog wowed me. The past few, less so, but I enjoy his exploration.

Post by: MugginsXO on November 01, 2014, 06:46:04 PM
I still enjoy some of his other stuff, for sure and I don't regret listening to any of his albums but I'm not going to ruminate on them either. I am happy that the first did it for me and the rest mostly didn't.

Here is something I hope anyone on that fresh Dancehall tip or just fresh beautiful pop music is enjoying:

Demarco - Wine Down Low

http://youtu.be/I6miNuKYB9E

Perhaps the best guy in Jamaican music right now. A hit machine. Unfortunately as with much of Dancehall stuff completely disregards the album concept but anyone wishing for a nice album length playlist hit me up.

Two other nice tracks:

This video is VERY silly and not appropriate for work but the song is up there with my favourite of the year.

Wizkid - Jaiye Jaiye

http://youtu.be/pAV4KlD86E8

This video is not quite so silly and is still a superior track.

I accidentally stumbled upon it via Amazon Mp3 store years ago, listened to some samples, downloaded it, and had that same Pet Sounds reaction to it. I don't think it has become overrated in recent years, I think due to the advent of the digital era more young people have to access it....and thus it has gained a lot of popularity in recent years.

It's without a doubt one of the finest collections of pop songs ever recorded.

Most importantly, (under- or over-) rating of anything is irrelevant to the music itself. It's just the dipshit listeners doing the rating.

No I agree, just that any personal anxiety about over or under rated is probably unnecessary. Only real benefit outside of some unspecified (by me) academic context is the enjoyment of the famous/overlooked thing for the individual.

I quite like in particular She's Not There, Summertime and Work N' Play from Begin Here and Butcher's Tale (Western Front 1914) and Time Of The Season from O&O. Also, Imagine The Swan which is not on either album. Odessey in particular is one of those albums that is good all around and is hard to pick favourites aside from the standouts.

I also heard that Rod Argent had a successful solo career too. Wouldn't mind checking it out (Colin's and Rod's)

Fats Waller - Giants Of Jazz

This is a time-life box set . It's got the classics. It's got a little bit 'o everything.
 Fats Waller has been a very rewarding experience for me. First heard him on the radio by chance.
It was his 1943 recording of "Ain't Misbehavin " . Blew my mind.  If you haven't heard him yet I'd highly recommend it. Especially if you like old-tyme Harry Nilsson /Paul McCartney songs, and that type of thing.

Fats Waller was a genius and is a giant of American music. We would not have what we have without him. So I'll second halblaineisgood's recommendation.

I really hope people are listening to Demarco. Wine Down Low is a beautiful, nearly perfect example of emotive song writing and production over lyrical obfuscation/cowardice. One perfectly musically realised line over ten verses that avoid libel /relating to a real human life/cloak pissing on an ex in soapy political arse. All day. All night.
