Can't say i've heard any of those you have listed KeepCool. I have the new BSP album and i have to say ive only listened to it two or three times, it doesn't really compare to their debut.

It's from last year but I recently got ahold of The Go! Team's Thunder, Lightning, Strike which is a cracking album, a real mix of of styles and great fun.

Thanks for the reply man...put this up there days ago and nobody responded to it.

Yeah, my tastes run pretty eclectic and the artists tend not to move too many units, so I'm not surprised.

Of The Go! Team I've heard "Ladyflash"...good little tune. If you dig them, LCD Soundsystem and Edan might be up your alley.

Oh, who the hell is BSP?

Keepcool, I think BSP would be British Sea Power. You should definitely get a hold of "The Go Team!" really great album. I don't know if you go there but pitchfork have a good review of it. I'd also recommend checking out a band called My Computer, they have 2 albums "Vulnerabilia" and "No CV".

I should have posted on your thread earlier but I've been trying to get hold of some of things you mentioned before I commented.

I'm really interested to hear the Madvillain remixes sounds very cool.

Quick review if you have time buddy?

DOOM!!!

Postby Keepcoolbutcare on Fri Jul 22, 2005 5:07 am

Tony my man, thank you. I've got BSP's "The Decline of BSP" and didn't put the two and two together. Gracias. I've heard mixed things 'bout the new one but would love a review/ is it worth the cash type of review.

What's up with Bloc Party? I've avoided it 'cuz the single did nothing for me, but I thought the same 'bout Franz until I bought that.

Four Tet''s Madvillain Remixes is a 6 song EP that TEARS THE LIVING FUCK OUT OF THE ORIGINALS!!! I wasn't a huge supporter of "Madvillain"...but I love MF Doom. Well, read here first...

http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/record-reviews/m/madvillain/remixes-four-tet-koushik.shtml

I'm pretty sure in the states it's only available on I-tunes. "Money Folder" is up in the running for my 'fave song of the year. Four Tet just went silly on the beats. And you've got MF Doom. I'm not a critic/reviewer....but if I was this would be the shit I'd by raving over. Well, fuck that, I am raving over it!!! Not a life changer, but money well spent.

Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah...

Postby Keepcoolbutcare on Fri Jul 22, 2005 5:23 am

To Tony Wilson and all musically inclined geeks/nerds/Zoners...

This Brooklyn band doesn't have a label, sounds like Joy Division, The Postal Service, Neutral Milk Hotel, Pavement, Talking Head...but not derivative. Free music 'peeps...

http://clapyourhandssayyeah.com/store.php

For free, my favorite song of the year, "Over and Over Again (Lost & Found).

Tony, trust me, you would have signed them.

Ok cool keepcool, I wasnt a big lover of madvillain, I'd heard a lot of hype so I was pretty dissapointed with it. These remixes sound really good though.

Now if I can just get my hands on some old school boom bip I'll be happy.

Glad to help breathe life into this thread keepcool :) good to see you in here too Tony.

I personally wouldn't buy the new bsp album if i were you. The debut grabbed me after the first listen and I love it, but this one, I dunnno maybe it will grow on me...

I personally dont really like bloc party, cant get on with the guys voice and they sound too simlilar to a lot of these other new bands that have come out post franz ferdinand (which i still haven't got into yet though i enjoyed their singles). I have mates that love them though...

Cheers for the clap your hands link , ill check them out.

HOLY MOTHER OF YOUR GOD!

"Ta Det Lungt" by Swedish (yeah, that's right, Swedish motherfuckers, sung in Swedish) psych, folk, rock, multi-instrumentalist Gustav Ejstes under the name Dungen is teh suk baby, teh suk. Best thing I've heard all year. But that's not even the best news...

For if you're a fan of Adult Swim (let's see I heard meatwad, shake, h. birdman etc...), Dangermouse (he of the famous Jay-Z, Beatles mash-up "the Grey Album", Gorillaz latest, and the slept upon "Ghetto Pop Life") and the always welcome MF Doom, then get ready for the craziness of "The Mouse and the Mask" from DangerDoom!!! This thing's leaking like a female hemophiliacs first (and most likeyly last) period on-line and if you like this kinda thing you will not be disappointed. I've been a little put-off by Doom's latest stuff (average, but DAMN is he productive) but this puts any fears to rest.

Not only does he write well, but he's got some good freebies. Plus, check his links...lots of quality sites.

Any of you Brits heard Hard Fi's "Hard to Beat"?

You know when you hear all the hype, see the phenomenal reviews, and just get this vibe you might be missing out on something great if you don't hear an album...but yet you refuse to hear the album on some bizarre principle that since you weren't at the ground floor you'll have nothing to do with the band?

Well, I was that way with Sufjan Stevens "Illinois" until...

http://www.villagevoice.com/blogs/riffraff/archives/2005/08/sufjan_stevens.php

I downloaded "Chicago". And even for the first two minutes or so, I was resisting. Foolish me.

GREAT TRACK!!! AND IT'S FREE!!!
I've gotten through half the album and am really liking it so far.

not yet...heard it was floating 'round the ether, but have been in a Dungen, Sufjan, Flaming Lips mode for a couple of days.

Any good? Should I open up my magical portal to new music now?

It's really good. Kind of frantic like "Almost Crimes" on the last album but not quite as dense, still ace though, it's called "Shoreline"

if anyone can direct me to a version of "Left Hand Suzuki Method", but just the first 3-4 minutes, I would greatly appreciate it.

"Fell the impact..." indeed. That beat is sick.

The first illegal download I ever begged a student to make for me. And now I get to buy it in the stores. Who said illegal downloading would ruin the music biz? They were wrong. Not releasing an album for two years because it doesn't contain a "hit single" is killing the music biz (amongst other crap).

I'm gonna go change my signature back to fiona to celebrate, like I should have when I first found out.

The new Nada Surf album The Weight Is A Gift is tops. Look for it in shops on September 13.

The new Fischerspooner album Odyssey has some good songs on it. They're not quite up my alley but I do recommend the album.

I'm not sure its available in the US but UK singer Jem's debut Finally Woken is good stuff. Dido fans may want to check that out.

Smashing Pumpkins completists and jazz nerds should check out The Jimmy Chamberlain Complex's Life Begins Again. Billy sings on one of the tracks.

Our Lady Peace just released Healthy In Paranoid Times. I wish I could give it a stronger recommendation but the whole thing is mid-tempo. I hope they lose Bob Rock's phone number.

Teenage Fanclub's new record is called Man-Made. Mmmm, jangly Scottish pop.

The Dead 60's self-titled debut is out. Those guys captured some great energy on the recording. Kinda sounds like The Police on 78 speed with more emphasis on the punk than the jazz.

The Tears' debut Here Come The Tears somehow sounds just like Suede. Hmmm, could it be that Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler used to be Suede? So glad they teamed again.

Some upstarts called The Rakes have a record called Capture Release out there somewhere. The easy comparison is The Strokes but The Rakes sound like they enjoy themselves which means I like them. Kinda similar to Franz Fredinand too, but not as easy to dance to.

It originally came out in 2004 but they just re-released it with bonus tracks so I'm including The Killers' Hot Fuss. I haven't listened to an album this much since Nevermind.

I'll say it: I like Gwen Stefani's Love Angel Music Baby. Catchy as fuck and it has a really good beat that I can wig out to.

Audioslave. Out of Exile. Excellent.

Beck's Guero is top-notch but I don't seem to be hearing much about it these days.

The White Stripes' Get Behind Me Satan. It might just be impossible for me to describe how much I like The White Stripes.

The new nine inch nails is growing on me. Trent Reznor makes a conventional rock record and stumps people again. "With teeth-uh."

I think I've run out of adjectives so I'll just say that I also enjoyed Hot Hot Heat's Elevator, Jimmy Eat World's Clarity, and Weezer's Make Believe.

Heard something unbelievably good last night so I thought I'd better share.

It's an album called <i>A River ain't too much to love</i> and it's by Smog. I really don't know much about them, I'm pretty sure they are American though. It's kind of folky but edgy.

I swear there isn't a bad tune on the album, and there a couple which have become some of my favourite ever tunes overnight - and that doesn't happen too often. My ultimate favourite is a song called The Well, about a guy who comes across a well in the woods and decides to shout into it. Amazing tune....

And KeepCool, you asked about the Queens of the Stone Age album - I don't know if you've got round to hearing it yet, but I think it's very good - not quite as good as their previous album, but that one was a hard act to follow. Unfortunately, my favourite tune on the album is a bonus track which for some reason is only available in the UK, so I'd recommend either buying an import or downloading the bonus track - it's called <i>Like a Drug</i>.

That's all I got for now, but I'm listening to a lot of new music at the moment; if anything blows me away like Smog did, I'll be sure to tell ya

Holy shit! Responses! Thanks ya'll.

Tyrone...damn! Quite a list. Since you mentioned Malkmus on some other thread, do you like the Silver Jews? Malkmus plays second fiddle (well, lead guitar, some vocals) in David Berman's indie-till-death, poet-rock outfit. New album comes out later this year, and it's already getting shout-outs from pitchfork.

Garbage Man...I'm down with Kanye as well. Beats are better than the rhymes, but that's to be expected. And Death From Above 1979...oh man. Great album, killer live show. Have you heard of Lightning Bolt? Same deal, two man combo, bass and drums. Bolt rocks harder, but isn't as poppy (but I hear they are veering toward more formal structure on their new one, out later this year as well).

Girlie...thanks. Callahan's been around a long time (this is album 12!) but this album seems to be the breakthrough for Smog. I'm gonna be searching for that Q.o.t.S.A song!

Once again, thanks all for comments/thoughts/reviews. Expand my horizons!!!

He's done 12 albums? Shit, how have I never heard of this guy?

Well, I'm glad you knew what I was talking about anyway - there is some great music mentioned on this thread, I've already started to track some of it down....

I got Death From Above 1979 from a friend several months ago, listened to it once and forgot about. It popped up on my iTunes a few days ago while I was busy with something else, and it's been in my head ever since. Damn fun album. I haven't heard of Lightning Bolt, but I'll definitely check into them. Thanks for the heads-up!

Definitely. I have musician friends who tell me it's "too poppy" but I've decided I don't give a damn. The fact that My Chemical Romance is now liked by the Mtv set shouldn't detract from their music.

That's a solid list, Lord Voldemoo.

I must confess that I am not a fan of Malkmus or Pavement. I have heard of Silver Jews and have been curious but for whatever reason I've never checked them out. J Mascis mentioned them a few years ago and that's what piqued my curiosity. I'll be on the lookout for the new album.

For a long while I was on the fence about My Chemical Romance, until I saw the video for "I'm Not Okay (I Promise)" and thought it was one of the best videos I've ever seen. More importantly I dug the song. I didn't seek out the album until I heard "Helena." Fantastic stuff. In my opinion "The Ghost of You" is the song on the album. It's also the next single and if what I hear about the video is true I can't wait to see it.

for me, this year has given me two amazing albums sofar from bands I'm big on. Those are:

Nine Inch Nails - With Teeth

System Of A Down - Mezmerize


I'm highly anticipating the second half of the System Of A Down cd, titled "Hypnotize", and there's also new Korn and Disturbed cds soon.

Who does that tune B.Y.O.B (Bring Your Own Bombs)?

That is one of the best I've heard this year high octane metal moving into an almost RnB chorus - that's some good shit

Every report I hear its supposed to be the most amazing three and half minutes of film ever synchronized to a pop song. It has a WW2 theme and I imagine its chock-a-block with as much mayhem as allowed. It's supposed to be on the airwaves sometime in October. I'm tempering my expectations because, hey, its just a music video.

That song's by System Of A Down, and it's on Mezmerize. The whole album is insane, a real mix of styles. It's also just the first half of a double album...the second half comes out in November.

Glad you mentioned Mezmerize...great album. I can't believe I hadn't mentioned it earlier, it's in my car cd player right now! I'm also looking forward to the second half of the double album.

I've heard similar things. I hate to sound like a lemming, but Ghost of You is my fave on the album as well.

MCR is a little poppy at times, but dammit, I like them that way.

Holy crap! I just listened to that My Chemical Romance album on iTunes and SHAME SHAME SHAME! That is about the most genericy alterna-rock I have ever heard!

Seriously... that's fucking wacked.

Best song of the year has been Blues Traveler's rendition of "The Beetlejuice Song" they performed on Howard yesterday. That's a solid f-in' band.

In lieu of my normal habit of just playing CD's in the car, I was listening to the SF "alterna-rock" station yesterday when they played that Stern clip. Not a fan of BT (caught them in college for free, not long after Popper's accident, and while I admired the guy for coming out onstage in a wheelchair and all, they're just not my taste) but that was a pretty good tune.

Never been a big fan of Blues Traveler. The first few times I heard "Hook" I thought it was The Bare Naked Ladies.

every once in a while you gotta move a thread (preferably one you started, beat your chest with pride and all) to the top of the heap, not only to let people know about it but because you want the opinions of all the newbies, n00bs, glibs, screwheads (and Flumm, I include you in this group as well...do you know you posted over 100 times in your first 24hrs here...pace yourself kid!) et. al..

So, um, please feel free to discuss all the "groovy" new music you've heard this year.

Thanks.

Heard Arctic Monkeys for the first time today - AWESOME. Best thing this year. Check out 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor' if you can.

Maybe this should have another thread. Anyone use Audioscrobbler? I have only just and it is great for discovering new stuff and seeing what people are listening to. Setting up a PZ group would be a piece of piss. Plugin works with most media players.

Sweet. Thanks Bastard!

Speakin' of Brits and dance music, what's the consensus on Lady Sovereign? I'm diggin' "Random", but I got a thing for female singers/MC's.

"Big Girls Need Love Too" by Blueprint. Hip-hop with wit, heart, flow and a great beat. Ch-check it out.
