One World on late night Radio 1 (if you have realplayer you can listen in, or catch up as the case may be), where various artists are playing records, and waxing lyrical it seems inbetween. Tom Waits has just abstractedly croaked his way through a reverie about how he learnt what the real highest hands are in poker while in Jail, before playing one of his more gentle folkish numbers...

The playlist pulled from the website...


01.00
Devendra Banhart - Hey Mama Wolf

Vashti Bunyan
Vashti Bunyan - Diamond Day
Vashti Bunyan - Feet of Clay (In session at Maida Vale)
Devendra Banhart & Vashti Bunyan - Rejoicing in the Hands
Joanna Newsom - Bridges & Balloons

David Berman from the Silver Jews
Silver Jews - Room Games & Diamond Rain
Nils Orlson - Biberslatt

Jolie Holland
Daniel Johnston - Walking the Cow
Jolie Holland - Ghostly Girl

Tom Waits
Tom Waits - How's It Going to End
Vetiver - Amerilie
Microphones - The Glow

Linda Perhacs
Linda Perhacs - Parallelograms (1st play in the world)

Sierra Cassady from Coco Rosie
Coco Rosie - Noah's Ark
Bonnie Prince Billy - Careless Love

02.00
Jana Hunter
Jana Hunter - Crystal Lariat

Alison Cotton from Left Outsides
Left Outsides - Leaving the Frozen Butterflies Behind

Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips
The Flaming Lips - Evil Will Prevail

Allison Brice from The Eighteenth Day of May
The Eighteenth Day of May - Cold Early Morning
Josephine Foster - Who Will Feel Bitter At The Day's End?

Adem
Adem - Statued

Adem mix
Scatter - My Son David
Tim Buckley - Song for the Siren
Shirley Collins - Dabbling the Dew
King Creosote - Circle of My Demise
Sefa - Ground in a Council Flat



Oh how I wish they would forgoe the switch from nocturnal diversity, of music for the sake of music, to the playlist purgatory of daytime Radio 1..

I've not been too good at listening to music recently... dunno why. Anyhow, I did pick up Primal Scream's new album which is gritty and raw, but not particularly captivating.

Oddly I also discovered a blatantly commercial band I actually like today in the form of Rooster. They had an interview on television and when they listed their influences (Jovi, Zepplin) I thought it was curious... and their vehemence at being compared to Busted was pretty genuine! The new single actually sounded like a throwback to grungey Pearl Jam (before they became MOR) so I thought I'd check out their last album and found it was pretty storming, with a blinding opening track. Actually better than it should be by far and rocking in a Moonie Suzuki kinda way without feeling quite so humourously referential.

One iTunes purchase later, kind of impressed. Throwback to early Pearl Jam, definite Zepplin hooks, could do without some of the Bon Jovi ballads, vacuous but fun lyrics...

Give it a few listens, its not something I'd describe as raw and gritty (well maybe the lyrics), but its is very layered with highly polished production.

"Rhinoceros" - Smashing Pumpkins.

One of the great atmospheric alt-rock songs of the last 20 years. I also think that Gish kicks every other Pumpkins album in the balls and then laughs at each one as they writhe in screaming, unspeakable agony.



Too extreme? :twisted:

dude, you are so right.

i used to listen to gish and lull way back in high school. i listened to the shit out of those records. i was so pumped for the release of siamese dream. but that was where i got off of that bus. not that SD was bad, but i didnt like the megalomania that seemed to be possesing corgan summarily after it began to chart. so i wasnt too into the pumpkins after that.

1991 was a hell of a year:

Gish, Nevermind, and Mr. Bungle's self-titled disc. Those three were on constant rotation my Jr. year of college.

And, Brock, I'm totally with you on the Pumpkins. It just didn't have the same vibe once SD was released. I still have all the albums, but they just can't live up to Gish for me.

Oh, and back on topic:

"Watch Your Step" - Elvis Costello

Listening hard & often to Blue Wonder Power Milk by Hooverphonic.
Very lush, rich string arrangements with some nice vocal / instrumental hooks.
Hooverphonic is about sonic landscapes, although they're listed as Dance/Electronic ( the only CD of its kind in my collection), they have an ethereal, almost New Age feel.
Dance to it?
Sure can,
Even a stiff like me enjoys the sensual movements & rythms on some of these numbers.
Loved Eden...quite a take on relationships.
Battersea has a haunting refrain of "gotta get over it, forget..."
This Strange Effect is a song that just works with me....dreamlike & fun.
I'm no music critic. Usually I go for dense lyrics, and while the lyrics on BWPM are interesting, they're brief.
Eden, however still packed a punch for me.
"I never tried to reach...your Eden..."
I've got four or five tracks from this CD on my Ipod...just love the sound.

so, Yo La Tengo is droppin' a new one soon.

responsible for one of my fave albums of the 90's, Painful, they've seemed to have mellowed with age. I mean, they're contemporaries of Sonic Youth for those of you who don't know, and George and Ira are freakin' pushing 50.

So when Beanbag Chair was mp3ed, it seemed like just another "ho hum, another solid mellow Yo La Tengo" tune.

Honestly, I didn't think they had it in them anymore, but mother-of-your-god, the supposed track 1 off of I am not Afraid and I Will Beat Your Ass, not only harkens back to the psych-synth-freakouts of yesteryear, but it could very well turn out to be THE motherfucking rock jam of the year, toasting both Built to Spill's brilliant Conventional Wisdom and the much anticipated (in some circles at least) Avatar from Comets on Fire.

Let the freaky sounds wash over you, 10minutes and 46seconds of sonic bliss, Pass the Hatchet, I Think I'm Goodkind.

I like my rock watered down with a side of pussy thrown in for taste. 8)

I like the album. It's <i>Silent Alarm</i>, but I'm not sure if it's their first foray into the realm of mass production music. The Remix album is good, too.

EDT: One of these days I.m going to invest in a dictionary. Or just use the Preview function...

banquet's on their debut I think AH. I was very suprised by Bloc Party actually. I thought they were just all hype but the album is remarkably good. A proper album not just 3 singles and filler. Nice production and some really rather great drumming.


EDIT: the remix album might actully be a bit better. Blue Light engineers remix is amazing.

Shows you how much I was paying attention when they "rose to fame". I dunno, I'm just tired of this kind of eighties throwback music, even if I did buy The Killers' album.

S'pose I can't talk really as I'm listening to The Black Eyed Peas' Monkey Business, which suprised me by sounding more like they used to. Not a huge fan of Elephunk, but their backing band really knows how to jam.

PostPosted: Mon Jul 31, 2006 5:43 pm

LOL, the Killers are much much more of a 80's throw back than BP. Bloc Party have some original(ish) ideas, and more importantly don't sound like Duran Duran.

I didnt buy BP's album till very late last year specifically cus I was sick of the hype, try AH, you might like it.

Meh, if it's cheap, I may. I have a friend who doesn't like it one bit... but he DOES like Muse... so... I'm guessing it's better than he says it is...

BTW different kind of throwback. The Killers is commercial throwback.

PostPosted: Mon Jul 31, 2006 6:08 pm
by TonyWilson
Oh killers is definitely a commercial throwback but Bloc Party isn't really much of a throwback at all. Sure it's got the spiky guitars but it's got originality there too, particularly in the production. Killers are fun but there isn't one original thing about them.

And why the heck are you trusting a Muse fan's opinion on anything that isnt campy overblown prog? :lol:

Currently listening to Mansun's SIX album. Amazing. Apparently they influenced Radiohead to go a bit more experimental. Though this album is better than any of theirs in my opinion. Just, and only just. Though this is the bands only outstanding work, unlike Radiohead who produce every time.

Other albums are ok, but not breathtaking.

Tracks to note are special/blown it, six, being a girl. The wole album is made up of 30 pieces of music though kind of put into about 12 songs. 1 great piece that goes from start to finish.

One of thos ebands I would have killed to have been into at a younger age. SIX was a far far far superior album to attack of the grey lantern. Little kix was too poppy and not very sincere sounding. I didn't like the album much so didn't go se em live (limited funds at such a young age) but now I wish I had to see a few of the older songs. Get six. You really will not regret.
