Thetan Free Since '93 new [re: EJ]  

He's also done full-album covers of The Velvet Underground & Nico with Nigel Godrich and Giovanni Ribisi and Songs of Leonard Cohen with Devendra Banhart and MGMT. The next one's supposed to have St. Vincent and Os Mutantes.

Brian Ritchie new [re: sonofsilence]  

Brian Ritchie of The Violent Femmes now resides in the island state of Tasmania and has formed a couple of interesting bands with notable people down here:

The Break plays modern surf rock and they consist of Richie and former members of Midnight Oil - Rob Hirst (drums), Martin Rotsey (guitar) and Jim Moginie (guitars and stylophone). They have an album due in the next couple of weeks. Their single can be heard here. For me, it evokes some of the feel of Frank Black's debut.

BRR is Brian Ritchie with former members of Split Enz - Eddie Raynor (keys) and Michael Barker (drums). 20 tracks recorded so far, possible live dates to come.

The Kindergarten new [re: sonofsilence]  

In reply to:

MGMT have an album coming soon.


The album is titled "Congratulations" and I am listening to it while I write. The music on the album is really good, quite trashy in parts, melodic anyway. Still I am not much of a fan and the reason is the vocals. Too much of them sound like a school boys choir and I don't want school choirs on a rock album. Listening to a young boy sing might be joyful for catholic priests, myself is rather put off by it.

One song is titled "Brian Eno" and it almost sounds like a Buzzcoks revival, "Lady Dada's Nightmare" has a intro with a Hunky Dory keyboard feel to it, another one has some nice acoustic guitars and yes, the album is full of interesting ideas. But void of a singer I can take seriously. Shame.

If they're anywhere, they're here new [re: EJ]  

The new Dillinger Escape Plan record -- Option Paralysis -- features a guest appearance from Mike Garson on the song "Widower."

Make of that what you will, Mike Garson completists.

The Lloyd Webber Album new [re: sonofsilence]  

In reply to:

Now here's a weird combo -

David Byrne and Fat Boy Slim -the album is called Here Lies love.


A weird combo with a horrible product. All easy listening, nothing fresh, very 80s and very listener friendly. Nothing to surprise you. Got guests on Sunday afternoon? Play this double CD, won't disturb anyone.

Apparently this is some sort of musical and maybe there is something special hidden in there which I don't get. But if not it is just a totally dreadful album.

Re: Tool Pros new [re: Marquis]  

In reply to:

If you pay attention to hype, prepare to get inundated by the wave that'll be coming off of Yeasayer's Odd Blood in a couple of weeks.

I'd rate it worth owning largely on the strengths of lead single "Ambling Alp," the Arcade Fire-ish "I Remember," and especially "Love Me Girl," which is the tits.


I am still pretty untouched by the album. It's as if the Killers would record a progrock album. All quite intelligent, all fairly listenable, all very heartless. No sweat either.

I'd rather recommend Kashmir's new album Trespassers. Loads of atmosphere from the Danish Radiohead, music for the brain and soul.

L. Ron Hansen new [re: Marquis]  

The first track from the new Record Club is up now on beck.com. This one is Kick by INXS, and also features Liars. Can't wait to hear Angus and Annie Clark duet on "Never Tear Us Apart."

EJ, for what it's worth, I was wrong (yet again) in my prediction, as the US press for Odd Blood was kind of "meh," although I gather the Brits like it.
