New Magnetic Wonder and Travellers in Space and Time. I think the most recent stuff is there best work.
You can check out my songs for free here.
My new album is out and it's titled Michael Matz- A Little Hello. If you're interested in a physical copy like my facebook page below and let me know. It's also on iTunes and Amazon for anyone...
Don't worry about it I fired back with a little more venom than required. Sorry about that. Thanks for the kind words Abel. Once the Apples or Olivia's release a new album I'll have plenty of new...
I think its safe to assume I meant is., but thanks for the flowery lecture. No longer living musicians can still inspire? How deep. No kidding.
I was a little scared that maybe they hadn't gotten around to cutting vocals with Bill yet. I have no doubt this album will be a triumph and a great reminder to the music world the incredible talent...
They've been extremely tight lipped on the release of this album.
Maybe David Bowie can do a cameo since he played him in the Prestige.
Loved the last record. Really looking forward to this!
How's the album going Robert? Any details you can give us yet?
Off my newest record. Enjoy!
My favorite E6 band of all time. I feel so fortunate I saw Bill on the E6 Holiday Surprise tour and then again with the entire OTC. So glad I didn't wait for a next time. Incredible, voice...
This is fantastic news! Can't wait to hear the new songs. I think this band just keeps getting better and better with each record.
Forgive me for being out of the loop, but what's an hour song?
ALBUM/SONG NAME: A Little Hello/Real Nice Guy
BAND/ARTIST: Michael Matz
This track is the most Plastic Ono Band I've ever recorded.
I'll be there. Who else is going?
Hey Robert are you involved in the new Olivia's project, working on a new Apples/Marbles record or something else entirely? I need some new tunes to help me make it through the winter. Maybe I'm...
Less then $150 (for now)
So excited to have this. Things are really moving in the right direction for the OTC cult.
I'm sure they're going to want to sell something new to the fans on this tour and if the new albums not finished vinyl reissues are the way to go.
I'll be there for the Philly date! When do tickets go on sale? This is the show that officially redeems this summer of bad concerts.
You should have come over and said hi! I was hanging out on the right side of the room most of the night and then I drifted back toward the merch tables near the end of the show. BTW I was a little...
Lovely thread. Anyway I'll be there tonight and it's probably the most excited I've been for a show in years. Can't wait!
I think Mike Love should get a free pass if only because he wrote the chorus for Good Vibrations. It may be the only piece of actual music (not lyrics) Mike ever wrote and Brian even backs up the...
I really enjoy the Beach Boys Love You. Such a weird and beautiful album. Maybe the last truly brillant thing Brian ever did...althought I hear his first solo album is awesome.
I'll be at the Philly show. I wish more of the E6 bands came through town.
I know it's only an instrumental, but sweet jesus Pitchfork you can't give this the top headline? I barely saw this news!
Well I was hoping for an answer to my questions, but I don't know if Roberts going to weed through 10 pages of madness to get to the few legitimate questions found within.
so does anyone have any questions for robert?
That was way more heated than necessary so apology accepted and if makes you feel any better I do enjoy your band too.
Guided By Voices was probably my favorite 90's band. Anyway to sum it all up here I'm not ripping Nirvana I really do enjoy them along with almost all the other "grunge" bands or whatever you want...
2) You're pretty up to date on your Guns side projects for a guy who hates them and you're right Nirvana certainly didn't sell albums for money they were all free! Same with their posters...
I'd be first to say Slash is a bad songwriter, but Izzy and Axl did the writing and I'd be hard pressed to name a guitar player outside of Mick Taylor that could have done a better job with that...
Kurt did love this band I can assure you :)
Uh lyrically it's about girls and love and cars. I would never say the music is meaningless same as the bands I've mentioned. You should work for Fox News.
GN'R covered the Dead Boys not...
You're completely wrong. GN'R had way more in common with Jeff Beck and Hanoi Rock than AC/DC. The only thing similar is both singers have high voices. I'd compare Axl to the singer from Nazareth...
So Please Please Me can suck a cock? Big Star's #1 Record? the Rasberries? the early output of the Beach Boys? Personally I'm enough of a big boy to enjoy fun rock n' roll and listen to all the...
He's right Cobain was not a KISS fan, he did however love Cheap Trick and Van Halen. Billy Corgan on the other hand loves KISS and opened for them during their reunion tour. To quote Jack White...
I really dislike the strings Spector threw on there, but I love the little snippets of songs and talking in between the tunes so I go with Phils version.
Yeah Brian toured the States (twice) playing the whole album and a mix of other songs. I'm sure if I've seen him play it more than once Roberts seen it too.
Windhorst if you're a film buff and in the Philly area you need to check out the Colonial in Phoenixville. There's a Kurosawa film festival coming up. http://www.thecolonialtheatre.com/
Haven't seen Inland Empire yet how was it?
In a Lonely Place
the Life Aquatic
Hey Robert I know you have a lot of questions to answer already, but two more. With all the output you've had lately would you say you're on a roll song writing wise or do you have a ridiculously...
I'll check it out, but this thread made me think what bands have been Pitchfork's darlings in the past. They've carried the torch for Radiohead and Animal Collective for awhile now.
What if I told you the Green Album is a lot of fun? Come on any record that has "Hash Pipe" and "Island in the Sun" on it can't be bad right?
I don't get all th Make Believe hate. It's good pop songwriting which is essentially what Weezer always have done. The lyrics are a bit generic, but compared to the Red Album it sounds like Bob...
Hey Robert I was wondering if they'll be a second leg of a tour for this record? I'd love to see you co-headline with the Circulatory System.
How has working with a songwriter you clearly respect...
I honestly HATE Maladroit. Rivers kept talking about how this album was going to "shred". It neither shred nor did it contain catchy pop melodies which have always been the draw for me. Make...
"Hash Pipe" was a summer song and that made the Green Album. The summer songs themselves certainly weren't heartfelt or anywhere near the quality of the first two records. I like the Green album;...
I think another leg of the US tour is in order...perhaps co-headling with the Apples?
People in the right circles respect Robert his songwriting and production. I wouldn't be surprised in the next 20-30 years you see the big name bands of the day hiring Robert to produce their...
Awesome thanks for asking ym question
Or write posts where you just vaguely imply you don't like it?
Interesting take on the album, I'm going to listen again with that in mind.
If you bought the album solely for fun catchy pop songs you're not going to be disappointed. I couldn't imagine the Apples could make a record with more hooks than NMW, but they did. If you're...
Here's a great review for the new Apples record. Feel free to post your own or others that start to pop up online.
Thanks Squiq. I have a feeling if Roberts been to Disney he really enjoys Tomorrowland.
Ask him what his favorite non-Apples Elephant 6 album is and maybe what he's listening to right now.
If you want more Elliott Smith check out Heatmeisers Mic City Sons which is pretty much half an Elliott Smith record. I also hope we get an outtakes record from his Dreamworks XO-Figure 8 era.
Use a memory man
I thought there was a post not too long ago where Martyn said he was going to continue playing as the Minders.
Jeff Buckley had a full band for all of the Grace sessions.
Prince's first four records and most of Sign O' the Times
Paul McCartney - McCartney, McCartney II, Chaos and Creation in the Backyard
Emitt Rhodes - S/T
Brendan Benson - Lapalco
the Beach Boys - Love You (it's rumored Brian Wilson even played drums on...
Reckoning is a really great record and Up is probably one of the most overlooked albums in any artists catalogue. Maybe because it sounds a bit too much like Radiohead? I can't say enough good...
I was hoping for a new copy that wasn't $79 thanks :)
I think it's a credit to Will's genius that he makes two very different albums each time out and they appeal equally (at least here) right down the middle. I think it would be interesting to see...
My local record store thinks they can get it so there's still hope.
Agreed, but I think Bill has the real knack for melody and might be the one to bring Will back in when he gets waaaaaaay out there.
Does SpinArt own the back catalogue or does Robert?
Tried to order this the other day from Amazon and they claim they can't get a hold of it. What gives? Any plans to re-release the album?
I don't think the E6 equates success (moving records I should say) as a bad thing. Jeff I'm sure has a million reasons for doing what he did. The Apples in Stereo and of Montreal have enjoyed quite...
I think their most accessible albums are actually some of their latest work. Murray Street and Rather Ripped are both really melodic with some great pop hooks. I didn't dig Sonic Nurse quite as...
I used to live down the street from Stoudt's Brewery in Adamstown, PA. They had a mean selection of beers that I can still find from time to time in and around Philly. Anyway I really love their...
That was such a huge win for the Spurs yesterday. That's two big wins the Suns have blown now. If they don't come out firing in Phoenix it's over for them. What is Amare's deal he can get anything...
I wonder when we'll get the finished product? I'm really happy that there's a light at the end of the tunnel now.
Neil probably although I think Axl would put out Chinese Democracy just to spite Dr Pepper. I don't know if we'll ever see the second CS album. I'd love to be proven wrong.
Great article thanks!
I would love to hear this. Anybody got it?
Me too we should start our own comp!
Give me the blood Lord!
PT Anderson (climbing that list)
I've been thinking about buying this album next. What are your thoughts on this album? I only own Hooray for Tuesday should I pick up another Minders release first?
Yeah I actually enjoyed the Lost in Translation stuff. I prefer Sheilds voice to the female singer anyway.
I hope you Spurs fans (there is such a thing?) know that this year you won't sneak past the Suns playing dirty basketball. The Suns will own the west.
You can check the Fox Searchlight page for upcoming showtime. I don't think this one is going to go wide for some weird reason. I had to drive about an hour and a half into Philly to see it, but it...
I've been to all except Sevile, but my pick would be Florence. Lots of great art, very friendly people, and not terribly expensive.
Very cool thank you
I'll be listening to Black Folliage tonight I think you should too!
My house was struck by lightening and my N64 was destroyed, but you know what? Decades and lightening come and go and I'm pretty sure I'll be long gone before my original NES stops working.
Miles Davis - Sketches of Spain
the Beatles - the White Album
the Olivia Tremor Control - Dusk
Van Halen - S/T
the Beach Boys - Sunflower
I think the Life Aquatic certainly has an audience and they are people who love the film, however it turned almost as many people off to Anderson especially after the success of Tenenbaums. I think...
There's usually 2-3 years between every record and since the last one was out in 06 I doubt it. If they end up doing some sort of compilation of unreleased songs they might hit the road. I'd love...
Yeah I'm not as big into GN'R and KISS as I once was, but I still don't have the heart to take those posters down. No Dick Tracy characters are anywhere in my room although I did enjoy that movie...
When I first started listening to the Beatles I couldn't really tell the difference, but now it's really obvious. If you listen to Big Star it's pretty crazy in that who ever wrote the song doesn't...
Pick up the Stella DVD and check out the shorts online they're even better than the show.
Come on man I think you could find both these albums relatively cheap and it's not like our friend Mr. Doss is selling millions. I'm sure he would really appreciate your purchases.
