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.

Tropical Fuck Storm

Some psych rock outfit from down under. Just discovered them. This is a really good album, bluesy rock with some nice vocals. They remind me a bit of Black Mountain with the main difference being the female vocalist isn't a bit annoying, quite the opposite in fact.

That's a really incisive remark. The lyrics are definitely adult.

I found a fox
Caught by dogs
He let me take him in my hands
His little heart
It beats so fast
And I'm ashamed of running away

I just picked up the first of her remastered box sets (the first seven albums) and every song sounds like it has taken a shiny bath. Most fans say that the period 82-85, The Dreaming/Hounds of Love, was Kate at her peak. I definitely agree.

The best start of any album ever. That soundscape, that drive, and the first lyrics "It doesn't matter if we all die..", sung with that Robert Smith - voice.

Incredible.

Husker Du otherwise, as well as Pink Floyd bootlegs from the 77 tour.

I joined the cult of Souled American / 'cause they are a damn' fine band


This one is my favourite from Pornography.

Purple Mountains - s/t

I've been listening to the new David Berman album for a few weeks now. Always loved those Silver Jews records.

So sad to learn of his death. Can't say this was unexpected. It doesn't take the sting out of hearing these news, though.

I can't stop listening to Radiohead at the minute. OK Computer on repeat.

The new Mark Mulcahy album The Gus. Another solid consistent album to add to his impressive repertoire.

Can't be fucked with Thom Yorke. It's nothing but a Radiohead wank party these days on the radio. It's like listening to how shite my own life would be if it was someone else was experiencing it.

Berman is where mid-life crisis art-rock is at this year.
Bedbug Posted - 06/27/2019 : 08:13:36
I am trying out this new Thom Yorke thing, Anima. So far so good.

A lot of people dig this guy it seems. And as the podcast mentioned, he seems to dig the Pixies.

David Berman is back apparently, with a new album and a new band called Purple Mountains

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZKMa-ByLBQ

He's my favourite Jew of all time. Of the band the Silver Jews that is anyway. Last time he released an album I was in Holland, living on a chicken farm.

Also,

BROADCAST

aka Trish Keenan. Been going since the early 90's apaprently, yet unknown to me until today when Radio 6 played one of their songs. Very Stereolab, but more lo-fi/indie/experimental and less acid jazzy. Well worth a listen to all their albums. I just did the full back catalgoue on Spotify, not a bad way to kill another afternoon in the house with a gammy leg.

Can some explain this to me? a hip hop song by Frank Black & Ike Ellis that just came up on my Spotify release radar. Clicking the link on Frank Black takes you to Frank Black the alt-indie rock stalwart's Spotify page. p.s. this song is shit and I'm only listening to it because it said it was by Frank Black

Today I learned that "Dream On" is an Aerosmith song (thanks to office radio).

I always thought it was Led Zeppelin or the Stones or somebody.

Annoying song to say the least.

I remember reading a review that said this song mimics the melody of Big Star's "September Gurls" so closely that Alex Chilton should get royalties for the song.

Heh I hear the similarities! Alex Chilton could (and probably should have) received Royalties from pretty much every indie rock band such was his influence

Lucky Day is a good song. Never heard them before, I like them.

Lucky Day reminds me of an old punk classic, but I don't think it's a cover?




It's not a cover, she talked to me about writing the song.

Yeah it's really damn catchy...almost every single one of her songs is really catchy! She's the first new artist I've gotten into in literally years.

I interviewed this woman for my podcast, and I have to say I got incredibly into all of her bandcamp music:

I would say highlights are this EP

Really been enjoying all that alt country that was recommended to me. Thanks a bunch for those. Otherwise I've been listening to a lot of Chrome, Scott Walker, Kristin Hersh and all her projects, Julian Cope and stuff like that. And lots of old post punk. I'm trying to start my own band to play a few local shows over the summer so I'm studying up.

Q: Where do Pixies keep their instruments when they're not playing?
A: Debasement.
