i just saw this amazing band called brokeback last night. they play sort of eno-ish type quiet rock, but it has a jazz feel to it. their drummer rules.

listening to bob dylan a lot now.

i saw daniel johnston open for YLT on monday and he was great too.

and also "half-handed cloud" still kicks ass.

Beat Happening - Jambouree (so amazing)

I'm constantly amazed that more people on this board aren't huge Beat Happening fans. I mean, jeez, these guys (specifically Calvin) started K Records (Microphones, Heavenly, Modest Mouse, Beck), heavily influenced the course music would take over the next twenty years, and were the most basically lovable band on the planet. With all the lo-fi lovers and DIYers around here it's crazy that people on this board aren't into some of the most important parts of those respective quasi-movements.

I don't know, maybe I'm just getting Calvin-Johnsoned up before I go see Dub Narcotic Sound System tonight (his new band).

do you reccomend death cab?

i highly recommend that you check them out. i recommend thier album 'the photo album'(the one i mentioned in my post). I actually haven't heard any built to spil. i did download their album but I haven't listened to it yet.

I would also like to add that I have rediscovered my Powerpuff Girls Sountrack.. good stuff...

mecca normal--the family swan
the new aislers set record (they played a good show here recently, though amy was very shy and doubtful that people were liking it, though almost everybody was dancing)

i've always meant to get more into beat happening. i'm a big heavenly/marine research fan and just the other day i was playing a nice mix tape in the car and a heavenly song came on and these two indie boys slouching sullenly in the back seat heard calvin singing backing vocals and shouted calvin! and made me rewind the song and turn it up and started bopping around. so what beat happening record should i start with, ouchmyphantomlimb?

Ouch!MyPhantomLimb!
04-19-2003, 10:41 PM
Well, that's a good question. If you're heavily into lo-fi DIY stuff I would suggest the debut (yellow record with a cat in a spaceship on the cover) which is truly excellent. My personal favorite is "Jambouree", probably just because it contains two of the finest pop songs I've ever heard ("Indian Summer" and "Catwalk").

Then of course you could just get the new Dub Narcotic Sound System record. I haven't heard it yet, I'm kicking myself for not buying it last night when I saw them. I have to say, everyone I convinced to go has said it's the finest concert they've ever seen. I wholeheartedly concur. I have never seen such a captivated, appreciative, dancing audience.

04-20-2003, 11:51 AM
dear friend,

yo la tengo were excellent.
it was the second time i'd sen them though, so ira's looooong solo's got a little repetitive, but they really kicked the shit out of some of those songs.

they did a lot from summer sun, which i dont know
but they also did nuclear war, stockholm syndrome, and you can have it all.

by the end of the night things got really sort of intimate, and they had daniel johnston (sp?) come out and he did speeding motorcycle. who is that guy anyways, he had some great songs.


also, i am listening to my morning jacket right now, and i urge all of you to as well.

sarahe, i really love built to spill's "perfect from now on" album. thanks for the death cab tip.

jenn, the new malkmus is a lot better than the last one in my opinion, i am happily suprised. it rocks out, dude!

There is nothing more to say about the show beyond "wowwow". It makes every other concert I've ever been to look lame. Whatever you do, go to that concert.

And get Calvin Johnson a get well card for his finger, he caught it in a record press. We did that on Friday, all of my friends signed it. I think he was touched.

*I would heartily agree with any June Panic plugging. He actually played here with Calvin Johnson when Mr. Johnson came around in November touring in support of his solo acoustic record. I'm so proud, he's from my home town.

I hate to be a nitpicker here, but I love Dntel too much to let it slide...
The Postal Service is not just Ben Gibbard, it's a collaboration between him and IDM monster genius Dntel. They wrote songs through the mail (thus the name).
Not to be a killjoy, but honestly the album usually loses me after about track 3. However, I enjoy those first three songs immensly and I would probably make a greater effort on the whole if I wasn't a cheap jerk who downloaded the record.

dolemites_sister
04-24-2003, 12:11 AM
I have downloaded a few of Malkmus' songs from this album. It sounds very similar to the last album to me, which is fine, since I listened to it for awhile.. I will definetly pick it up sometime.

I decided to listen to some of my older stuff that I hadn't listened to in awhile, and I had forgotten how good Kincaid's Good Citizen of the Month was! I love these little rediscoveries that I get every now and then..

Oh... and I also just purchased Cat Power You are Free, and i'm really digging it right now!

i haven't heard fruit bats' first cd, but i like mouthfuls alot. most of the lyrics seem to be leaning towards nature topics, which is a plus and the instrumentation isn't complex but everynow and then they'll throw in some special instrument and that makes the songs all the better. its a great cd for spring and summer, and one of the best i've heard this year.

05-27-2003, 09:52 AM
hola sister...I went through the same predilictions you are going through, I was scared about the new record--but I'm a Blur freak so I knew I was going to get it anyway--currently I don't have a verdict yet--I've heard it about 3 times all the way through and all I can say is that it is very different and a bit bizarre at places--which in my mind is better than if after a few spins I thought it was bad. It sounds like a slightly more electronic version of 13 with a little less rock and a little more electronica/dancey stuff...so, obviously Graham's leaving affected the band, but some of the tracks I really dig. I'm still feeling my way through it..that probably didn't help one iota but I thought I'd let you know what I though ;)

Luciano Berio - "Differences (for 5 instruments and magnetic tape)" 1959

I just heard that Berio passed away on Tuesday. He was a great poetic musician. This piece in particular opened up worlds, and was one of the first successful attempts to combine natural sounds with prepared sounds from a tape. He uses the original instruments as source material for re-modulation, then blends the transformed instruments back into the piece seemlessly, so it's hard to tell where the natural sounds of the instruments end, and where the processed sounds begin. Very beautiful!

Oh yeah, the ensemble is:

Jeanne Bextresser - flute
Virgil Blackwell - clarinet
Kaaren Philips - viola
Fred Sherry - cello
Kathleen Bride - harp

Live last night it was Dick Dale.
KIng of The Surf Guitar.
I was told about the concert an hour before it started,had to rush to the city.Met up with my man,got over to the venue just before he started.Hot asian chick mingles with pouffy blonde perm trailer park girls in the front row.Mullet man stands right behind and tries to look like hes with every girl in a ten yard radius...
suddenly Dick leans down to play to his adoring female fans there,miss red tube top I watch all the baileys ads(it looks like thats what she was drinking)reaches up and twangs his guitar as hes playing.(the asian girl)
Bein the cool cat he is he lets it go and plays to another part of the crowd for a while.Then after a bit he goes back,I mean lightning doesnt strike twice right?Right?TWANG!
I leave to go get food.

Ten minits or so go buy.I get back.she is still at it and this time calling the guitar her boyfreind.Security starts to come at her through the crowd,she actually spots them and runs off.We don't see her again.I come up with an inspired handsighn for "little stalker."
Later on security throws two guys away from the stairs and into the crowd as if Dick is coming down,no,he just came over to flirt.One song later he does come down and walks out the door and down main st and all around.He does this every show.I bum a clove.

I dont smoke.After the show an angry punk girl type tells me I "shouldnt wear corsets"!!!
I say "No,its fine,look how flexible my lower ribs are.I am a physical anomaleigh".You still shouldnt!!!!(her)Oh my and we shouldnt drink,or wear makeup,or get tatooed...(me)I left before I got punched.

Later Dick Dale kissed all the girls he could.I kissed him on the cheek.He ws going for lips so watch out ladies!
I took a ride in the '47,got rained on and had a drink at my towns only five star dive.
and that is some of what I have been listening to!

06-06-2003, 07:24 PM
Yeah nerves,
I am really lucky to have that album.I bought it used to!It was just sitting there in this college towon record shop a half hours drive from my home.I put it outta my mind at first,but it kept bugging me.
Four mounths later I whent back and it was still there!
i snatched it up.Hee Hee,It is the oonly pink thing I even own.Hot pink vinyl....
Two years later I bought my first record player.
And three months after that I hooked it up.

I'm not sure if I ever posted on this thread, but even if I had its ll changed now:
Os Mutantes!!!!!!
Grandaddy - Sumday
Guided by Voices - Alien Lanes
Lilys - Better can't make your life better
Velvet Underground - (everything)
Pavement - Crooked Rain
Brendan Benson - One Mississippi
and last but not least....Everything Gram Parsons!
If any of you haven't heard the new Grandaddy album, I strongly recommend you do so. Its not my favorite album by them, but its still a fantastic album. Also, if anyone's never heard Os Mutantes before, you'd better do yourself a favor and check them out.....anyone out there like Mutantes?

Fabulous Muscles by Xiu Xiu is brilliant. It took me a while to, as someone suggested on another thread, make my way through their records, but I really like the progression.

I just ordered a record from the Isolation Years, which rickard put on my mix tape. They're some sort of Swedish alt-folk. Anyone know anything about them?

What's this Robert Anton Wilson thing? Is it a spoken word record?

Circulatory System
As ever, this can't escape me. The new track on the Wishing Tree compilation is a really beautiful teaser for the new album.

The Shins - Chutes Too Narrow
Easily the best album of last year, and really cheered me up after I endured massive disappointment fatigue with less-than-brilliant albums by many of my favourite bands: Yo La Tengo, Kingsbury Manx, Summer Hymns, Sea and Cake.

Sam Prekop
This solo album almost eclipses The Sea and Cake. So smooth it's ridiculous - many thanks to Jim O'Rourke for the gorgeous production.

GBV best of
Amazingly this works really well. I've tried to make a GBV compilation for my best friend, and from his response I don't think it worked very well. But to have a best of picked by Bob Pollard himself is great, both in terms of the actual songs, and to see what he considers to be his best stuff. Not heard too much from the recent albums, but 'Twilight Campfighter' breaks my heart.

dolemites_sister
02-23-2004, 01:52 AM
As for GBV, I've been listening to Forever Since Breakfast which is their first album ever and has finally officially been released in the new boxset. FSB is brillant... There is a REM-ness about it as well....

The Best Of is a perfect collection of songs. I have been listening to it quite a bit myself. Its surprising, because I thought I wouldn't be listening to it at all. Its definetly a hell of a lot easier than carrying all those CD's in my car...

I also recently got Edison's Demos album by GBV. Damn this shit is good.. I cannot even believe the genius that is Robert Pollard.

I agree totally.. The original Dayton lineup is the best. In fact, the other night we were watching "Watch Me Jumpstart" for the 6000th time, and those guys are just awesome. The video for "The Official Ironman Rally Song" makes me sad. Its really nostalgic and those guys just worked so well together.

I won&#039;t completely be dissing on the new stuff. Its just not as good. I love Mag Earwhig though... Earthquake Glue is pretty good as well... Well, I also like Universal Truths and Cycles... So pretty much other than Isolation Drills and Do The Collapse, the new stuff is good. Just not quite as good as the old days..

at the moment I&#039;m listening to some belgian indie, specifically a brilliant record called "The human thing" by a band called Das Pop. One of the few bands that has actually surprised me with every song on that album. Other belgian bands in my cdplayer: millionaire, zita swoon, mintzkov luna and of course the mighty dEUS.

I just got that Thanksgiving LP in the mail today - I haven&#039;t listened to it yet but I have to say its the best packaged record I&#039;ve ever gotten. First for the fact that the LP comes with a CD copy of it, second because it comes with a water-coloring book, and third because the cover is a HEART record turned inside-out with the Thanksgiving artwork screen-printed on the other side. Recycling at its best use.

Wow... Sounds impressive! Let me know how the music is. I&#039;ve listened to quite a few of Thanksgiving&#039;s earlier songs in the past day or so, and I must say that I&#039;m not very impressed overall. Hopefully this full-length can change my mind...

I find his first two releases to be real repetitive and somewhat dull, but his last two releases, The Ghost in the Eyes, and Welcome Nowhere are fantastic. They will definately change your mind.

And the album cover I received was made from &#039;The Best of John Denver&#039;.

Listening to Sufjan Stevens sing how he&#039;s ashamed of his mum because she was so unmoved when her father died - tragic, fragile and sad, but really singable.

Gaz, I run the gauntlet of being completely incorrect, but I think Ice Hockey Hair actually refers to any haircut thats between two styles.

if some other people let me listen to the records they've got, i wouldn't need to get all those records on my own and could get some cheap lovely goods or clothes instead. i could have killed two birds with one stone

It's actually an awesome rock record with great bass lines, less 'jamming' then other Amon Duul albums I've heard, good songs with amazing changes, the fast n' scratchy violin solo on "Surrounded By The Stars", and the moogs on ""Green-Bubble-Raincoated-Man", so good! Renate's vocals are a little strange in spots, but there are a few different singers. Such awesome heavy production on some of the tracks with mellotron choir and church bells, bubbling water, etc.
