Tweedypated new [re: power2charm]  

I like the first 1/2. Exactly. And then I start to snore. That Germany/Japan song = Alternative Music. It sounds like Tevision + Pink Floyd -- or maybe even Television + Wilco, . And I still hear a soupÁon of The Kinks in there. Those first 6 songs contain enough smokin' guitar to give me a decent guitarasm, but the 2nd 1/2 dozen leave me a bit befuddled. No, that's just a nice way to put it, they leave me bored. That's okay, the Wilco back catalog is rich and has enough to make my June 19th and 20th viewings of the current tour pleasant enough, I'm sure.

Peter Gabriel new [re: ohramona]  

Peter Gabriel is currently recording a new studio album entitled Input/Output or simply I/O - his first since 2002's Up. Gabs currently has 150 songs in various stages of completion. The earliest possible release is said to be 2007 but knowing him, this could be 2017.

Wikipedia has this page on the album in progress.

That's going to be somewhat more than a double, then.

Re: Hot Releases for 2007 new [re: sonofsilence]  

if you want some retro pop - check out Calvin Harris

check out the song Acceptable in the 80's. it's a good song but very ageist.

Liars Happy Shaker new [re: 96dbFreak]  

Liars - Liars

Iíve only had the chance to listen to the new Liarís album twice so far and itís simply not enough time to be able to give it a proper assessment, but one thing I do know is that itís excellent. These guys just keep getting better and better. Itís no less dense and complex and experimental, but itís much more immediate and melodic than its predecessor, Drumís Not Dead, with none of that albumís deliberate thematic encumbrances. Highly recommended.

Happy Mondays - Uncle Dysfunktional

Shaun Ryder seems to be quite an angry young man these days, and heís channelled that into some killer grooves on this, their first new album in 14 years. Surprisingly good.

Kula Shaker - Strangefolk

The first thing you need to know is that Strangefolk contains no Indian-influenced music at all. The second thing you need to know is that itís very very good. Their first album in eight years, after Crispian Mills sidetrack with The Jeevas.

Out On The Highway - the opener is a classic, anthemic, KS singalong rocker. Love it immediately.

Second Sight - very sixties psychedelia sound to this one. With a bit of a wig-out at the end. Great stuff.

Die For Love (album edit) - if Iím not mistaken this is a waltz and a bluesy one, at that. Sounds like something Cilla Black or Dusty Springfield could have belted out 40-odd years ago. Nice.

Great Dictator (Of The Free World) - if you heard last yearís Return Of The King EP youíll be familiar with this one. Itís not my favourite KS song. This is a re-recording however and sounds slightly different. Itís certainly been given a lot more production oomph than the EP version.

Strangefolk - is very very strange indeed. I wonít describe it, youíll find out.

Song Of Love/Narayana - I like this one. A lot. Plenty of riffage, lots of sixties sounds, very KS anthemic again. Apparently it contains parts of a song that was co-written with The Prodigy and featured (with vocals by Crispian) on their The Fat Of The Land album. Has horns and a girly choir, which canít be bad. The only vaguely eastern-sounding thing (but not much) on the album. Cracker, actually.

Shadowlands - lovely Crispian ballad with Bowiesque overtones (ďThese are the shadowlands and Iím just a shadowman, trying to love youĒ). Remember The Jeevasí Virginia and how much it sounded like Queen Bitch? Very very nice indeed.

Fool That I Am - this one is a beautiful soft rock ballad. If theyíve got any sense theyíll put this out as a single. Again very sixties sounding.

Hurricane Season - longest track on the album and starts off with the sounds of the seaside before building up a jazzy groove. Crispian flexes his Dylan fan muscles (that were apparent in a lot of Jeevas stuff) again. I wonder if the ďHurricaneĒ reference is a nod to that? Not bad, though.

Ol' Jack Tar - unusual, dreamy, atmospheric song with a lovely tune and interesting arrangement. A bit different, which is not a bad thing.

6ft Down Blues - this was also on last yearís Return Of The King EP and has again been re-recorded to give it a bit more power. Strange lyric about a dead guy hoping that Jesus will resurrect him.

Dr Kitt - harp and flute and some kind of unusual guitar provide the backing for another odd one. Not sure what to think of this, might be a grower. Bit of a brother to the title track.

Super CB Operator - closing the album with a glammy-sounding rocker is always a good idea. Again this is a bit of an oddity but, hey, this ainít a Coldplay album. Definite toe-tapper. I like it.

On second listen - my personal favourite. Quite Simon and Garfunkel-esque, except it's good. Am I getting old?

Re: Hot Releases for 2007 new [re: sonofsilence]  

I'm particularly looking forward to albums by Bad Religion, Smashing Pumpkins, The Thrills and Art Brut, all of which appear in the next few weeks.
Looks to be a brilliant year for music.

Hop to it, Mutants new [re: 96dbFreak]  

Being that the home office of Mute US is about 20 steps away from my desk, I'm a little peeved that Stu has the new Liars already and I've had to make due with a single track stream on Pitchfork.

Which was awesome, and I'm dying to hear the rest.

Speaking of Mute, I've got to admit that I really dig the most recent Mando Diao record. It's extremely same-y, but if you have to repeat the same song 5 times on a record, it helps if its a good song. And it is.

They let the retard in the game and he went wild.

sun, sun, sun, here we come new [re: Marquis]  

The new Polyphonic Spree album apparantly has Mike Garson's fingerprints all over it - and early reports are saying that it's excellent.
