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.

Then again, didn't the stones just lift their name from Dylan's song?



I correct myself, the web tells me it was from a Muddy Waters track.

I wonder if Nirvana were influenced by the Pixies. Someone should ask the question in an interview.

Am I the only one who didn’t know there is a band called Gouge Away?

Their name is Gouge Away but wiki says their influences are Nirvana etc (not Pixies ironically)

Anybody into this band? Worth a listen?

Gotta be honest their name already turns me off. But I’d be glad to be wrong.

As usual, Ween did a great job this weekend. One of the best live shows you'll see. If you never got to see the dead or Floyd, ween might be the next best thing.

One of the best bands ever methinks.

Polaris live show now streaming on Spotify, awesome show, awesome band (Mark Mulcahy, Scott Boutier, Dave McCaffrey) - going to have to watch The Adventures of Pete and Pete now! The song Hey Sandy sounds a bit like a slower Debaser instrumentally.

Missed them in my town last summer. Heard it was a great show.

Sometimes their lyrics make me uncomfortable, in an amusing good kind of way, but I am definitely down with the brown.

Going to see Ween this weekend.

Anybody else down with the brown?

Dunno if she's doing the sounds as well as the vocals, didn't say on the radio today. Kids are so technology aware these days though so wouldn't be suprised, and I hope she does. I actually thought this was Inka Upendo song, reminds me a lot of her style. Already posted it but here it is again https://open.spotify.com/album/402nggvJyrCo8Cu2guHOHY

Listened to the new Smashing Pumpkins album, must be the first album of theirs I've listened to in 20 years (since Adore). And somewhat to my surprise it doesn't suck. Production sounds decent, Corgans voice holds up and some nice riffs. Not revolutionary but not bad.

Listened to Brainiac while baking cookies today, which was fun! They were such a unique and creative band. Plus there's a Pixies connection- Kim Deal produced one of their EPs.

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

I see on their website Viagra Boys are coming to the United States in March. I hope they survive until then. and then afterwards of course too.

Oh yeah! Check the video too, it's pretty good. I heard about them a few weeks ago too. And just noticed that I missed them in Paris last month...

Yes, the video is good, and I need to get out more.

Apple Music finally added FMRM this week, so I'm listening to a lot of that.

Seeing Dylan live was amazing. Very strange, surreal, powerful, perplexing, beautiful, mysterious, funny, magical, warm, and thrilling. And weird.

You can check setlist dot com to see what he’s been playing on this “never ending tour” of his.

His backing band is awesome too. The drummer killed it.

I recommend seeing him when he’s in your area.

Got really into Liz Phair lately, especially a batch of rare songs I found that are better than tons of stuff on her albums. Obsessed with this song:

and also this one

Cool man, I will check it out!

Did you see him on the second to last Letterman show ever? It's one of his most bizarre performances also. He wanders around the stage aimlessly for part of it. Personally, I love it.

Atlantic City believe it or not.

Better late than never, but I am on my way this weekend to see Bob Dylan perform live.

Looking forward to whatever form it takes.

Any other Dylan fans on the forum?

Boy Harsher. Some pretty nice dark, minimal synths going down here.

Nice fan video to this track, a few faces everyone will recognise (and plenty of hips)

Frank Black made his debut on The Chain on friday with Headache. The Chain is a long running feature on the afternoon radio broadcast on BBC radio 6 where people phone in with suggestions on how to link the next song.

https://www.thechain.uk/

I have suggested Painkiller by The Chap for the next track.

This has inspired me to revisit some of their music again, and so I'm just listening to this EP/mini-album that seems to feature some interesting cover versions. Your Latest Trick by Dire Straits and Bruce Springsteen gets a mix in one of the remixes which are quite lo-fi electro. They're quite experimental.

Yes, I think it could be a smash hit.

The new Yowler album is pretty chilled. Reminds me of the early Waxahatchee stuff.
