the blue aeroplanes are a great and totally overlooked band just on a general level. i highly recommend checking them out to anyone who isn't already familiar with them.

oooh, bettye's version of down to zero is killer


things somehow imploded over the weekend

She'll take the worry from your head
But then again
She put trouble in your heart instead
Then you'll fall
Down to the ground
Down to the ground

They've been mentioned several times on these forums. Are they a power-pop band or something? That's what I'm thinking, but I don't remember.

no, actually, very different from that. they sort of go along with the 80s british underground guitar rock scene, but aren't as weird or abrasive as somebody like the fall. some elements that remind me of, say, house of love or something similar, but with a much darker feel. the vocals really set things apart, too--the singer is more a narrator than anything, and he has this sort of brooding, ominous tone in which he tells stories that rise and fall in intensity in conjunction with the music. both his voice and the band are able to push the edge of control at times, but they never explode into heaviness or chaos. it's always reined in, though sometimes you feel like there's only the barest hint of restraint left. fascinating band.

My mother's workmate stayed over at our house for a night a few months ago, and got me to introduce him to some new music, so I played him Joanna Newsom and Lou Barlow and now he's gonna drag his wife into town to see Joanna play. I have done a good deed.

Anyway I made him a mix of her stuff (mainly off Ys) and this one:

1) I Don't Blame You- Cat Power
2) No One Knows My Name- Gillian Welch
3) Over and Over Again (Lost and Found)- Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
4) Rebellion (Lies)- Arcade Fire
5) The Purple Bottle- Animal Collective
6) Parisian Dream- Laura Viers
7) Kingdom of Lies- Lou Barlow
8) Lion's Mane- Iron & Wine
9) Werewolf- Cat Power
10) Bridges and Balloons- Joanna Newsom
11) Upward Over The Mountain- Iron & Wine
12) Third Planet- Modest Mouse
13) Holding Back The Year-Lou Barlow
14) Fidelity- Regina Spektor
15) The Book of Right-On- Joanna Newsom
16) John Wayne Gacy, Jr.- Sufjan Stevens
17) Loretta- Townes van Zandt
18) Chained to the Moon- Lou Barlow
19) Float On- Modest Mouse

Anybody want to make me an ambient/drone/metal mix?  

I'm finding that this is the best kind of stuff when I'm studying.  I've probably listened to Sunn O)))'s Flight of the Behemoth every night for the past month, and another friend of mined gave me a disc with some Xasthur on it which I really dig as well.  While a bit harsher than what one might typically refer to as 'ambient', it does the trick for me.

Pretty please?

garr, just reading that brings back taunting memories of failing to learn to play that song (it's so good and so difficult for a lazy fool like me)

looks like a happymaking mix!

It never even occurred to me that it might be humanly possible to play that song! Although now that you mention it, and considering I don't believe in supernatural powers of any sort and the fact that the song exists, I guess it must be?

Fascinating. This opens up a few questions about my view of the world Wink

the mix came with waffles and gingerbread (I had no fortune cookies, nor do I really care for them) filled with revolutionary slogans, so between all of that, I'd hope that it was happymaking.

exactly the kind of question I was talking of!

Personally, I think I got up until the third song printed in the book which with I was supposed to learn to play guitar before I gave up on the idea of ever being able to play a song I liked, so I'm quite impressed with anyone who knows how to play more than two chords. Or anyone who knows only two chords, but plays those two without mistakes, for that matter.

It is an extremely happymaking mix and package indeed! Funnily enough, I am discovering the Bert Jansch song right now. It doesn't seem like a song a human can play, that's for sure!

Edit: wow, that Wooden Wand song is excellent.

it's always easier to play songs you write than songs you have to learn from other people, which is i'm sure the reason bert jansch can play "angie".
