Sigur Ros is the greatest living band. Discuss.

If anybody is a fan of good hard screaming rock and roll that is executed with technical proficiency, you owe it to yourselves to check out Ausitot Mort. I have no idea what they are saying, but the whatever it is it seems to fit with the music very well.

You can find their myspace here

Yeah, these guys rock - Quick Death is the conversational translation of the band name - a literal translation is "Death at Once'

Some of it, certainly - at times they are a little too close to Big Black / Rapeman for comfort; I loved Big Black, and nobody should be trying to rip-off the good Dr. Albini.

Of course, all of this is subjective; someone else may hear no Big Black in there at all.

I've never really understood all the hate for "Heart Of Rock & Roll". It's certainly not one of the best songs ever written, but it consistently shows up in top 10 ALL TIME bad songs... I just don't get it.

And whoever put "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" on that list doesn't have children.

The rest of it? Pretty damn spot on actually. I'd probably put Celine's tune at #1 though... God I hate that song...

The thing about that list is, they're all hits. Somebody needs to put together the truly worst songs, still recorded by popular acts, which most likely no one's ever heard except for the few times some fan listened to the whole album.

Perhaps we could put up personal lists of the worst songs by some of our favorite performers. I'll need to do some research, because I'm not Winslow, and get back to y'all.

I was hoping you would comment (along w/Minstrel and Dennis or anyone else who might know the originals) just for a compare and contrast between the covers and originals.

I've heard of all the artists, but I'm pretty sure I've never come across those tracks.

I will certainly comment once I get a chance to sit and listen in a non-work environment. I'm most looking forward to the "Simon Smith and the Amazing Dancing Bear" cover. I loves me some Randy Newman. I've got to be honest and say that although I know most of these writers... I haven't heard all the songs. John Phillips, for example, wrote most of the Mamas & Papas originals... but I don't know his solo stuff real well.

I've been obsessin' on Okkervil River lately, so any new stuff to listen to is much appreciated. Check this out when you get the chance:

He looked sick as crap but he sounded really good. The place was packed as it is a tiny ass club that the smaller bands typically go to. NPR never broadcasts from there but I guess Okkervill was worth it for them. I honestly would have expected them to be at a bigger venue.

I've had a chance to give a good listen to "Golden Opportunity"... wow. Several cover songs and one live version of a song that appeared on Okkervil River's first full-length. These are all gorgeous and spare live performances (with audiences or just in motel stairways) of songs that are not necessarily familiar to most. The songwriters certainly are: Jimmy Webb (MacArthur Park, By The Time I Get To Arizona), John Phillips (Monday Monday, California Dreamin'), Randy Newman (Rednecks, Political Science) just to name a few.

It's not surprising that the band (or at least Will Sheff) would pick these songs to cover. The lyrics are passionate and visual, much like their own songs. The standouts from the covers: Jimmy Webb's "Do What You Gotta Do", made (relatively) famous by Nina Simone, and later cheapened by Linda Ronstadt. Sheff wrings every ounce of heartache out of the song with his fragile, wavering delivery. "Antarctica Starts Here", a John Cale tune, also perfectly suits Sheff's voice. The final refrain is sudden and pitch-perfect... a cover by a man who understands what the song means.

In the end though, none of these songs compares to the Okkervil original: "Listening To Otis Redding At Home During Christmas". I've now listened to it four times in a row. It's a song that would actually fit quite perfectly with their latest album The Stage Names... it sounds like it could have been an outtake. The songwriting is sublime. The way the narrative blends in perfectly with the chorus (Otis' "I've Got Dreams To Remember", a perfect song in its own right) is simply transcendent. Just check this out:

And I hear that song sometimes and imagine us much more than friends - like if we stayed in this town, bought the first house to go up on sale, and how each Christmastime would bring inlaws and snowdays and holiday mail.
Your dad says you’re living in Georgia since last September. Yeah well, I’ve got dreams to remember.
Oh Sara, come back to New Hampshire. We’ll stay there forever.


I mean.. Jesus... just perfect.

Thanks KCBC for finding this... a fantastic music-geek Christmas present!

In the Court of the Crimson King. Been listening to it nonstop, blasting it on the way to work, on the way back from work. Soon as I have a second I'm gonna download some more of their stuff. Any suggestions for the next album to listen to? Not necessarily the best, I mean, but maybe one that will be a good follow-up to In the Court of the Crimson King?

Which one?

If it's wasn't me, it could have been. Loves me some KCrimson. All the different versions.


In the Court of the Crimson King. Been listening to it nonstop, blasting it on the way to work, on the way back from work. Soon as I have a second I'm gonna download some more of their stuff. Any suggestions for the next album to listen to? Not necessarily the best, I mean, but maybe one that will be a good follow-up to In the Court of the Crimson King?


I'd move onto their next album, In the Wake of Poseidon (even the title makes it sound like a sequel to The Court).

Other KC /sans Sunshine Band recommended LPs (they're all classics IMO- the first three especially- so take your pick):

Larks' Tongues in Aspic ('73)
Starless & Bible Black ('74)
Discipline ('81)
Beat ('82)

Considering they were pretty much a different band with every album they released, don't expect any of those to be too much like In the Court of... Especially those '80s LPs, which sound more like long-lost Talking Heads albums than anything (they even had one of their members in the band at that point).
