One paragraph to show that 2007's boring new [re: sonofsilence]  

The Klaxons' debut album's a bit good, so long as you can vaguely ally yourself to the New-Rave scene that's springing up around it. And if you think New-Rave sounds a bit like the old rave scene, only minus the ecstasy and aimed at 17-22 year olds, you're probably right...doesn't stop the music being pretty hot though. The follow up album from The Kaiser Chiefs is decent, but a bit empty - the gimmick's wearing thin, but for out-and-out pop/rock anthem making, they're about the best there is at the moment. Apparently, about seven weeks were spent making Yours Truly, Angry Mob: in parts, it seriously shows. The Arctic Monkeys will probably take the world by storm again. Brianstorm's a fine song, and all, but it still sounds like everything else on the first album. Energy they may have, but scope they really don't. Mark Ronson's sort-of-debut-album is also, probably, a bit amazing - the little I've heard is, in any case. Shame he decided against including Just on there, though, 'cos that was slightly brilliant. Clearly Pop Levi's latest offering is something special, though as I've not yet heard it myself, I'm only going on word-of-mouth.

Well I'm glad someone's talking about the guy! I saw him last week at Mercury Lounge (a tiny shithole of a club), he was laden with eyeliner, drugs, and a mission to rokk. I love the guy.

You can check out a good number of songs on http://www.myspace.com/poplevi

Awwww. Mummy took you on a business trip. Well she could hardly leave you home alone with Daddy, could she, given that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, does it, R/Rapistpig?

BTW, did you notice when you were in Melbourne the way that nobody has a hairstyle like it's 1971?

In all your years of sick obsession over me, you seem to fail to have noticed that I haven't lived in the same city as my parents since 2002.

But, then again, you have thought of a brilliant nickname (if not a new insult) for me over the last couple of months, so I guess I can't complain too much.

... which is where I came in

No, well, Sandra moved back to Wellington in 2002, didn't she? Did she take Daddy with her? She'd hardly leave him with you, would she, R/Rapistpig?

chopper new [re: Remade/Remodeled]  

Have actually only seen the brilliant Chopper movie once. Chopper owns a pub in Collingwood, you can go there and drink with him anytime!

You may or may not have been exposed to the brilliant Ronnie Johns Half Hour - do a search on YouTube for Chopper clips. Start here

Stu, is this a Sydney issue because R/R said Melbourne was ace and he'd love to live here?!

You can have him, dear. I have daughters. I wouldn't feel they were safe if I knew that R/Rapistpig was in town.

Exciting new releases for 1967 new [re: 96dbFreak]  

I seem to be the only one who keeps the "hush" discussion going. (Or the rest of you felt that the subject was more than exhausted already after two posts. )
In any case, as a spin-off effect of that discussion I am on the verge of becoming a Billie Joe Royal fan. Can that be a good thing? Her version is definitely the best.

It's LABRYNTH, idiot!

Double Down on Dear new [re: Emil]  

A couple things to mention bout some early faves for Best of 2007 lists:

Panda Bear - Person Pitch

I'm surprised I haven't mentioned this already. It's like this: I never really got into Animal Collective, even though, you know, they're like brilliant or whatever. So when I heard that one of the members of the band was releasing a new solo album, I figured it would probably be like AC only worse. Except then I heard it and kinda liked it. And then I listened to it more and liked it more. And now I have been listening to it almost every day for the last month, and it just keeps getting better and better. It shares with AC the penchant for folky-sounding loops, but with some absolutely brilliant Wilson-esque melodies. I liken it to Pet Sounds on even more acid. Check: "Bros," "Comfy in Nautica," "Take Pills" (wait for the last 2 min on this one)

Matthew Dear - Asa Breed

If you ascribe to the belief that techno has its roots in the ambient beats of Brian Eno, then you can think of this as the circle completing itself: Dear has made a name for himself as one of the few medium-name American minimal house producers. His 2003 debut Leave Luck to Heaven contained a couple of brilliant tracks and some decently entertaining filler. For Asa Breed, however, Dear has said that he was influenced heavily by My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, and it pays off in spades. The album sounds almost like microhouse remixes of Talking Heads, albeit without David Byrne's lyrical genius. Flags a bit by the end, but check: "Deserter," "Neighborhoods," and "Pom Pom" and try to listen to the last one fewer than 3x in a row.

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

In reply to:

Panda Bear - Person Pitch


So I'm thinking....hmmm....might be interesting. So I download it and put it on my mp3 player and put it on while travelling to work this morning. So I'm reading my book and every now and then I keep realising that I'm listening to something amazing and I'm glad I got the slow train because I don't want this to end.

Wow. Thank you for the recommendation, Marquis. What an amazing album. I used to listen to Animal Collective quite a lot, but havenít for at least a year. I donít remember them sounding anything like this, however. I must check them out again. But Person Pitch is terrific. I particularly like the obvious African musical influences. African music played by white people can often sound a bit twee, but the incorporation of African-stylie grooves and rhythms into many of the pieces here works so well. And the Jesus & Mary Chain meets the Beach Boys meets Fela Kuti meets Phil Spector (unarmed) overall sound of this album is incredible. Lovely stuff.

The only problem with this album is that it's too short. I wish it'd been a double.

I see that Lennox recently moved to Portugal. It'll be interesting with his next project to see if living on the Iberian peninsula has an influence upon his music (though the guitar in Bros sounds like it already has some of that influence).
