Re: Damon & Friends new [re: EJ]  

Well said, EJ. Unfortunately, hip hop has been misaligned due to mass media, but to appreciate it as an art form is to also appreciate words and flow of words. When you hear a good MC, you can have awesome pictures in your mind from how they enunciate a word and the context they use it in.

Metaphors, character, stories, etc... are all part of decent hip hop and the Gorillaz have used awesome lyrical masters like Deltron 3000 and De La Soul as well as other great artists (from a variety of genres) intertwined with Albarn's vision to create new styles and sounds for thirsty ears.

Just remember - that death is not the end...... new [re: ghostlove]  

If you thought that Johnny Cash's posthumous career has started to slow, it is time to guess again.

The last week has seen the release of another new album - American VI: Ain't No Grave. It debuted at US #3 - the highest of any new album released this week.

Richard Kingsmill (Triple J FM): "Do you mind if we throw to a song by your old man?.
Duncan Jones (Bowie's Son): "Oh God ... if you have to ... OK ... but have a look at Nick Armstrong and The Thieves"

Also, according to Rick Rubin, it's the last album of the bunch.

Still, nice to see the ghost of Johnny Cash haunting the american top ten.

I'm glad to see that the legendary Cash is still topping the charts.

In a press release, Apple announced that its iTunes Store had topped 10 billion song purchases and downloads.
The 10 billionth song was Johnny Cash's "Guess Things Happen That Way,"

Avalon lives! new [re: schizophrenic]  

Groove Armada's new album Black Light features an excellent cameo from Bryan Ferry, doing his usual Bryan Ferry thing. The rest of the album I can take or leave (it'll get a few more spins before I know for sure), but this song... man.

Watch HERE.

The Unseen Power of the Picket Fence new [re: schizophrenic]  

Pavement have a best of coming out this week. Called "Quarantine the Past". Despite not having any new material on it, I still predict it will be the most adventurous, original and refreshing guitar-orientated alternative record of the year.

I used to be with it, but then they changed what "it" was. Now, what I'm with isn't it, and what's "it" seems weird and scary to me.

Beck and Tweedy new [re: Forgotten_Boy]  

The new Beck album "Oar" is pretty weird stuff. It's a cover of an old album by a dead man, this is what pitchfork.com said about it a while ago:

"Beck got together with Wilco in L.A. to record their version of the 1969 cult fave Oar by onetime Moby Grape/Jefferson Airplane member turned acid casualty Skip Spence. Beck's long been a public admirer of Spence; he covered Oar's "Halo of Gold" on the 1999 tribute album More Oar. We are good and excited to hear what happens when Beck and Jeff Tweedy, the owners of two of rock's most evocatively weary voices, sing on the same track."

I haven't been able yet to decide wether I like the album or not, but in any case it is definitely worth checking out. The original is unknown to me but the Beck /Wilco (and Feist) collaboration is certainly interesting stuff. It has some weird tunes and noises on it, which make it as far from the mainstream as I am just able to cope with - and then again it has some very cool drum loops and vocals which are not far from radio friendly pop.

This is not a comfortable listening experience, but an interesting one nevertheless. Probably even more so for those who have ever heard the original by Skip Spence.
