I'm listening to the new Frank Black album now. "Captain Pasty" is a favourite - a Frank Black standard! As a whole, the album is just as good as the first few FB albums, no worse, no better, quite all right.

It's LABRYNTH, idiot!

Re: Hop to it, Mutants new [re: Marquis]  

In reply to:

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


Have you managed to hear the whole album yet, Marquis? In a year when there's been some great releases, this is fast becoming my favourite album of the year. I can't stop playing it. I don't want to stop playing it. After the hit and miss stylistic experimentation of the first three albums they've finally achieved perfection, IMHO, with Liars.

I must have been asleep about 6 or 7 weeks ago because I missed the fact that The National released a new album called Boxer in May. They, along with Secret Machines, Kings Of Leon, Yo La Tengo and Viva Voce, are probably my favourite US band and the album is absolutely beautiful. Why these guys aren't huge amazes me.

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

Just bought the new Tomahawk album, Anonymous. For those who don't know, Tomahawk is Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, etc.), Duane Denison (The Jesus Lizard), and John Stanier (Helmet, Battles). This album has them doing 19th century Native American folk songs. I'm listening to it right now and so far, it's...decent. I have to admit, something about Mike Patton's voice recently is starting to get to me. I mean, the man has amazing talent, don't get me wrong. But it seems that for every new side project he takes on he just uses one aspect of his voice, milks it for all it's worth, and just leaves a pile of affected mannerisms where a vocal performance should be. Or maybe his bag of tricks is a lot more limited than I realized. In either case, Duane Denison's guitarwork is great, and the album does have at least one truly awesome song (Omaha Dance). Maybe a few more listens will convince me.

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

In reply to:

I'm particularly looking forward to albums by ... Smashing Pumpkins...


I first recall hearing Smashing Pumpkins on the John Peel show sometime in late 91/early 92. A year or two later Iíd borrowed Gish and Siamese Dream from my local library and taped them. I liked both albums a lot. When Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness came out I got a CD copy and was not impressed, feeling that theyíd launched themselves into the mainstream, leaving behind the thing that made them different. Of course the rest of the world thought differently as the album became huge and people who had only ever listened to mainstream rock were introduced to a real indie band for the first time. Not only that but they bought the record and made MCATIS the biggest selling double CD of the 90s.

Having been disappointed by MCATIS I was not well disposed towards either Adore or Machina/The Machines of God, which I listened to, but only once or twice. I never heard Machina II/The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music and never bothered at all with Zwan. I quite liked Corganís solo record TheFutureEmbrace.

So here we are in 2007 and the Smashing Pumpkins are reformed (well Corgan and Chamberlain are reformed) and thereís a new SPs record, Zeitgeist, and I love it. The songs are well crafted melodic rock. Corganís guitar is terrific and Chamberlainís drumming is inspired. Current favourite tracks are United States, (Come On) Letís Go!, Starz and one of the limited edition bonus tracks, Death From Above. I suspect this album is going to be huge, though I doubt that it will surpass MCATIS in popularity - itís a different time now.

jeff tweedy is breaking my heart new [re: ohramona]  

In reply to:

Television + Wilco


i thought the same thing at times...

i love this album. absolutely love it.

even when i thought there was going to be the one or two songs that weren't as good as all the rest (a heavy metal drummer or elt, so to speak) they turned into some sort of beautiful crushing sound.

and the piano on it? good lord.


i do think it's funny, though, that so many people seemed to have doubts about this one (or most people i've talked to)...did a ghost is born leave a bad taste or something?

you kiss me, baby, in the coffee shop
you make me nervous, you gotta stop
