i'm so thrilled about some albums lately, but i don't want to make a new topic for each one, so here's the list:

DEERHUNTER - microcastle
i just discovered this a couple months ago, and it's easily one of the best albums i've ever heard. i can't stop listening to it!

THE HANDSOME FAMILY - honey moon
beautiful, nearly flawless album. rennie sparks never disappoints. great summer night album.

ANIMAL COLLECIVE - merriweather post pavillion
haven't stopped listening to this one since january. endlessly wonderful.

I can't stop listening to Dylan's "Changing of the Guards" -- his version, FB&C's version, and Patti Smith's version. All are great.

Iíve got Repetition on repeat



I've not listened to many whole albums by The Fall but kurious Orange is a known favourite. Re-mit that was out a few years ago wasn't bad I though? Some of my favourite tracks anyway:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5zav2yrC7M
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3ZSXlNvAiI
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0bZofM6EOU (cover of an old Northern Soul song)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0I2u6DKnwI (also a cover, obvs)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6m2lfk4Bm34
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIZ7AhqflYM&t=314s
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpWVk3h2SA8

I guess you probably know most of them anyway..

And this Jools Holland live clip is quite fun, especially at the end. MES was well known for his drunken antic (or pretending). I heard a story one time at a gig when the band got so fed up with him that they all walked off the stage and left him (and were genuinely hacked off with him).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09Z3Ww94IUk

The reality of MES is I beleive that (according to many who knew him) that he wasn't actually a very nice person. The full Glasto up here 2015 set is quite good, and you can visibly see the band members getting pissed off with his antics.

Yes, It's entirely the kind of laconic humour we would expect from Mark E Smith

Just read through the lyrics of Kurious Oranj. And get the MES historical perspective of the working class shitkicker. You'll start to get it. Just remember MES is one happy prick.

Kurious Oranj/The Fall

They Were Curious Orange. They Were Kurious Oranj

Pained and intense, man. But they were inquiring

They rode over peasants like you, they rode over peasants like you
And their horses loved them too, and their horses loved them too

They built the world as we know it
All the systems you traverse
Rode slipshod over all dumbshits

They freed the blacks too
They built church in one day, man, Amish

Their clothes were cool
Paved way for atom bomb--didn't know
They made the Jews go to school
They sent missionary girls to Arab states
And the sun-baked men did drool

They made Hitler laugh in pain
They turned Napoleon over and didn't know
They invented birth control
They were invulnerable to cool

They were primo efficient to a man
They were Stuyvestant smoking
They were beyond Ooobenblief
They were the Reformation spring
And everybody in the world
Turned Reformation blue

They were invulnerable to cool
And everybody in the world...
And they were inquiring
They were positively deranged and they were kurious oranj

They spat on the Belgians
They were anti-Gaelic, anti-semitic, anti-Arabic
You name it, man, they were against it

When you've gone through the entire The Fall back catalogue and eventually gotten a bit bored with them, just pick any band from the new UK lo-fi punk scene and listen to them. They're all copying Mark E Smith and most of them are complete shit. You'll feel entirely refreshed by The Fall again after a couple of Fontaines DC tracks. #TheBlandAge

Anything Brix-era should get you jumping for joy. I started with Kurious Oranj.

Dragged the audio book into the 21st century doing it.




I read the graphic novel about Nick Cave (Mercy On Me) and it was really bad.


Denis


A friend of mine at uni (He took German. I took French) went up to Cave in our local pub and started a conversation in German thinking he spoke some German having lived and worked in Berlin. Realising Cave spoke no German he got offended and told Cave off for not showing proper respect to his hosts. Cave just sat there dumbfounded. I wish Kleist had put that little nugget into his graphic novel.

Aye, they do. We used to go for lunch on Portobello Rd most days and would sometimes see Cave walking with his son, Luke. Always walking briskly I remember.

I don't know a great deal about her. She seems to have a high guitar reputation (like St. Vincent), but on live videos from this album she doesn't seem to play much.



Annie Clark is a nice guitar player but she doesn't play so much live any more either. She went a bit lamely megafamous after this album, which I consider her peak

Recommend anything and everything by Cate le Bon. This is my favourite track off Crab Day

Same here. I've been listening to it a ton the last week. Lots of good songs on there. And that last track -- wow. That's how you close an album.

Yeah the artwork is great! Anything Nick Cave does I want to like, Grinderman, Lawless soundtrack and the movie The Proposition were all great. I suppose when you've been in the game as long as he has and gone through as much as he has then you have the right to release whatever you want.

I'm just a bit surprised with the number of 10 out of 10 reviews mostly. I remember reading a review for the best of album released in 90's where the reviewer asked why he wasn't very very famous and celebrated, I'm glad that perception has changed (if it was ever really true) and is receiving credit for his work now.

I think their recent stuff has been less Bad Seeds and more just Nick and Warren Ellis. I prefer the Mick Harvey material.




I feel exactly the same but am happy if he's happy. He lost a son before recording Skeleton Tree. In any case he's had such a long career of consistent brilliance that he's earned every bit of slack he gets.

I love the artwork! Not sure if that's a real or digital painting though.

I was listening to it this morning with my mum and she says: "It's a bit depressing this"

That's Nick Cave for you. Anyway, I like it (if only because the artwork complements my perception of it in a dreamlike positive way)

I've always found Nick Cave's stuff kind of listen and leave really. Have to be in the right mood, and place(drunk/stoned in a forest usually does it)

Neil Young has a new album coming out this month. He's released two songs off of It so far. Been enjoying them quite a bit. He's an American treasure (despite being Canadian).
