This is one of my warm blanket albums. Warm, strange & distant. Question


I'm discovering that Tortoise is basically as good as it gets in terms of low-volume office space listening.

These guys aren't bad, either:

but apparently i'm dealing with some corrupt mp3s, 'cause the last track just became grim augury by sparkehorse featuring vic chessnut.

I've been listening to songs in alphabetical order for weeks. Only the stuff on my iPad at work, though. I started at Soul Coughing's "Unmarked Helicopters" (from Songs in the Key of X - I'd recently seen the episode that the song was in) and have wrapped around to the beginning. Today started with Fairport Convention's "Come All Ye."

The carillon concert in the church a few metres from my office, while actually very pleasant musically, is making it really really hard to concentrate on work. And I really do want to work.

Ah, finally figured out why it sounds so familiar! Canto Ostinato by Simeon ten Holt. Nice.

Boards Of Canada  Heart

Hear, hear!

np: The Middle East - I Want That You Are Always Happy

I think these guys are a good singles band but can't make good albums. They came out with what should've been at the top of everyone's song-of-the-year list in 2009 with the song "Blood.", and there are a couple great songs on their new album, but neither of their albums has been particularly good. They're kind of all over the map stylistically. Infectious, upbeat anthems here and murky, melody-less ballads there. There's even a faux-classical piano piece in the middle of the new album.

Picked this up yesterday on the suggestion of a friend. This a great record and probably the best Svenonius project I've heard since the Make-Up.

Two Gallants.

I love this goddamn band.  I love their melodramatic tendencies.  I love their inauthenticity.  I love the way that they confront their inauthenticity in such a way as to become authentic.  What a great motherfucking band.

Had a bad introduction to those guys. They played with Blitzen Trapper -- coincidentally the band I'm Now Playing! -- and I left after 5 or 6 songs. Just wasn't feeling it at all and the crowd was a bitch.

There are many nice things to say about Blitzen Trapper, but the fact is, their albums are pretty inconsistent. A couple years ago, they were my favorite band for a while, but then the inconsistency got to me and they released a sub-par album (even by their standards) and I just left them alone for a while. But I've been revisiting them this week and I just discovered something: they're super-fun on random! I've got 85 BT tracks all scrambled up right now and it's making for good times at work. Such variety!

Man Friend and Foe might be the ultimate grower. I have been listening to this album for four years and it is still getting better.

Decapitated - The Negation

For some shameful reason I haven't listened to this for a couple of months. For my money this is the best death metal album of the last ten years.

Tim Hecker - best album of 2011, hands down.

Oh, I have that, I must get around to putting it on!

Now playing Gang Gang Dance - Eye Contact. Picked up a physical copy last night at their gig. More people should like Gang Gang Dance.

I bought a copy of the very same album for one euro last week, actually! But I can't tell if I like them yet (that will be my introduction), as I have yet to listen to it.

I want to hear what you think. They've got this electro-tribal dance thing going on that I like. They'll be all experimental for a bit and then lock into some straight-up club groove for a while. I think it would be possible to be irritated by the singing, though. Maybe partly at the voice itself, but mostly that about 95% of the lyrics are totally incomprehensible.

Man Friend and Foe might be the ultimate grower. I have been listening to this album for four years and it is still getting better.

I couldn't make it through that album even once back when it came out. It was just so different from the first Menomena album, Fun Blame Monster, and went in a stylistic direction I didn't care for. I think what it comes down to is that I'm more of a Brent Knopf fan than a Menomena fan. I listened to Fun Blame Monster recently and realized that his songs are the ones I like best on it. And his solo release under the Ramona Falls moniker, Intuit, is one of my favorite albums from the past five years. Talk about a grower. Every time I listen to Intuit it sounds more amazing. And of course it produced the best music video ever.

Missed this. But yeah, I love this album so much. The only song I took a while to get into was The Pelican, which oddly enough seemed to be the track everyone else picked up on first. The more recent album, Mines, has lower lows, I think, but still a good 5 or 6 brilliant songs. I really enjoyed watching the several 'Live at KEXP videos there are on youtube.

Yeah, Friend and Foe is fucking phenomenal. And repeated listens reveal how thoughtfully it was composed.

Oddly enough, I've been underwhelmed by the rest of their output.
