The Woman Who Fell To Earth. new [re: Kirk]  

You guy[s] can pick this press release apart all you want. I'm too excited to give a shit. It's bound to be better than anything Bowie's done this decade. I say it is and it's true.

Trying to navigate TW reminds me of what it was like having dial-up service.

Yeah, but that's true of pretty much anyone worth listening to!

Regarding Maximo Park...not really my thing usually, but "Our Velocity" is pretty kickass. Also, the new Battles record is sick.

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

And by all accounts they just keep getting better live. They played an apparently amazing one-off show in Tokyo on Saturday which makes me wish I'd scheduled my trip for last week rather than tomorrow.

... which is where I came in

Best album of the year so far me and it's gonna be a tough one to beat in my mind anyway.

Air and the Kaiser Chiefs underwhelmed me, too much of the same I think.

I admit to being disappointed by the new Bloc Party album, they seem to have painted themself into a bit of a corner with that guitar sound of theirs.

Arcade Fire could very well almost be brilliant. I'm still undecided. It took me a few listens to before being convinced that Funeral was a masterpiece. This album will no doubt be the same.

I shall be interested to hear the reformed Crowded House and Smashing Pumpkins albums. Both without vital cogs in their wheels, the line between success and failure will be a very thin one indeed. Let's hope the Pumpkins won't be Billy Corgan solo, part II. I more optimistic about the Crowdies, Neil Finn is still an ace songwriter.

And I kinda wish The Stooges hadn't made The Weirdness. I mean, it's enjoyable on a lot of levels, but it feels kind of like a bleep on their legacy you know?

Speaking of reforms, I found out yesterday that my wife's favourite band Kula Shaker have reformed an will release a new album late this spring. I really really liked the first two Kula Shaker albums, and if the new album can reach the brilliance of (ahem) K or Peasants, Pigs and Astronauts it's going to be one hell of a treat.

I also like their album "Emil" new [re: K]  

I must admit that I only got into Kula Shaker about three weeks ago, after realizing that they were the ones who played the "na na na" song (also known as Hush ). Funny, they would have made much more sense in 1990 than in 1997, when they were around - all the same, they wrote some nice songs. Wonder if a reunion can be a good thing??

It's LABRYNTH, idiot!

Damn, that was my line! new [re: Emil]  

I'm actually just listening to their new(ish) Revenge of the King EP and on the first listen it sounds very good. The sound is rougher than on their 90's albums... actually reminds me a bit of Gorillaz, but with added 60's psychedelica flavour if you can imagine that. Admittedly not maybe quite as great as the first two albums but still very good.

Re: Damn, that was my line! new [re: K]  

I think K was the best album of the 90s. I can't wait for the new one. And Emil, Hush was a cover of a Deep Purple song from the early 70s.

Oh.
I did think it sounded like something else I'd heard.

na na na na new [re: Emil]  

Oh, the Deep Purple original is almost identical to KS's version! (OK, of course it's the other way around. ) I guess I should listen more to "Purple" than I do. This was the kind of music that several friends of my older brothers listened to.
Btw, it's clearly borrowed the hook (at double speed) from the Beatles' "A day in the life". Took me a month to realize!
