Y'all gonna hate on the style we create, straight 2008.

I'm gonna go ahead and say fuck the Yeah Yeah Yeah's, simply because Karen O is dangerously close to becoming the new Courtney Love. I did dig the single, I like how they signed onto a major label only to get "Maps" some airtime, then watch a bunch of depressed teenage girls listen to the rest of the CD in confusion.

I'm wondering if the Killers can create another album that's as good, if you like that sort of music.

Wu Tang just did that indie album, and Gza can't seem to go more than a week without releasing some sort of compilation. Here's hoping MF Doom gets paired with a competent producer again (Dangermouse good, Madlib bad.). All good times.

you know he's producing the new Ghostface, right?

I still prefer when he's both producin' and rhymin', and c'mon, this is Metal Face; he's 'prolly got at least 2 or 3 things droppin'...this week. Man is prolific.

edit: Milton, have you heard the Madvillain remixes by Four Tet? I agree with your Madvillainy dislike (somewhat), but man, Four Tet flat out pwned a couple of those tracks, particularly Money Folder.

I'll totally check that stuff out. Everything he makes is borderline flawless, Madvillainy still has some good songs, but nothing was helped by letting Madlib touch a mixing board, FUCK those are some cheap ass beats.

If I had a dime for every rhymer that bust guns, I'd have a cool mil for my sons and trust funds.

I'd give endless amounts of money to see Stoupe from Jedi Mind get paired up with someone less violent and hate filled.

Massive Attack said it won't be out till 2007


Appears to be a lot of conflicting reports about the release date of Weather Underground, either late 06 or Feb 07, we will have to make do with the 'Collected' album which is out in March and is where the new single can be found.

Bugger, I really got excited when I heard 'Live with me' last week but I shall have to contain that excitement for another year.

I really liked 100th Window, I didn't think it was lackluster as Pitchfork thought.

Anyone know anything about Orson? Saw them on TV and was quite blown away by the tune. Why do all bands from LA insist on dressing like wankers though? Daft suits and uber-trendy "We live in Hollywood" hats - could be their downfall.

Great single though - No Tomorrow. Video is knocking around online.

Just heard the Perceptionists for the first time courtesy of lastFM as well. Good stuff!

Well, if I plug one arm into an electrical socket, and my other arm up in the air, I can kind of get a faint reception that maybe my local taxicab firm, or as I suspect, Radio Iceland.

But that's about it.

:cry:

But on a good note, I did buy some tasty speakers, so when I finally get things going, I'll be up up and away. If there's a moral to this story folks, it's never buy refurbished computers from family members...

Does anyone know of any mentalist bands going around lately? In the vein of Estradasphere, Bungle and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum that is. I'm hungry for a new band to download and so far I'm stuck in a time warp, going from the Soft Machine to Spiral Architect but as yet unable to keep my finger firmly on the pulse of society.

...teams up with a bunch of veteran soul (cat's who've played with Al Green and Booker T...so you know, badasses) musicians and records her most hi-fi, clearest sounding album to date. I'm buggin' out over a couple a tracks right now, but it's the whistles in the background of After it All that's sold me on this.

A bit slow, but those into mellow atmospherics, tortured lyrics and unique voices will dig this. And ya know, she's hot, if that helps.

(frakin' Photobucket's on the fritz, hopefully the pics will show up later...)


when i got that last handsome boy modeling school record, i was instantly drawn to her track. it was my first favorite on that record. my gf had a couple of lesbian coworkers who absolutely ate her shit up. oh, and i dont think she sounds like natalie merchant either.

New Pornographer's Twin Cinemas is worth a listen...

Motion City Soundrack has a cool thing going on...

Digging the new one from The Sleepy Jackson!

The Rick Rubin produced Neil Diamond is cool.

Coheed & Cambria seem to be channeling Geddy Lee from Rush.

And it's a few years old, but if you haven't heard Gillian Welch's Soul Journey, it's AMAZING! Trippy, soulful alternative country...

And for the weirdness of it, William Shatner has a new album that features guests such as Ben Folds & Henry Rolling. His cover of Pulp's Common People rocks in a surreal way.

I just got Rabbit Fur Coat by Jenny Lewis (with the Watson Twins). I listened to it twice and now I'm obsessed! I love, love, love "Rise Up with Fists!!", "Happy", and "Rabbit Fur Coat."

I've never heard Rilo Kiley, but this makes me want to.

Check out this lot if you like Interpol/Bloc party ( whom they are being compared to by the British music press )

3 tracks are up to listen to on their Myspace page, TheVoomBlooms

Not sure about the single 'Cigarettes and Politics', but the track 'Lovers' is pretty good.

Ghostface Killah (yes, he's once again donning the Killer moniker), Fishscale.

If there's a better rap/hip-hop album released this year, it'll have to be a stone cold classic, 'cuz Ghost and his plethora of brilliant producers fuckin' NAILED this one. The flute that Doom drops on "Underwater"...damn.

Tapes 'N Tapes, The Loon.
Indie rock, just the way I like it. A bit fuzzy, lo-fi, they "borrow" from some of my faves (Pavement, Pixies, sometimes noticeably) but the final minute or so of "Manitoba" will be hard to top sonically by any other band this year. Good stuff, we've got the new Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah mini-phenomenom in turns of hype, but it's deserved as well.

Murs & 9th Wonder, Murray's Revenge.
So far, nothing jumps out at me like "Walk Like a Man" and "And This is For", but still, some good stuff from a few cursory listens. I think I only like 9th Wonder when he's teamed with Murs (Little Brother, BLECH!) and I think I think Murs is one talented, confused, thoughtful, bitter, caustic, funny MC. Calls out fake thugs, but doesn't play the "thug" game, not into slappin' bitches or dealin' the ya-yo...but he ain't typical emo/backpacker rap, he's got something to say, and he deserves some success.

But really, if you're into rap/hip-hop/the Wu-Tang, brilliant, surreal imagery and wordplay, some of the hottest, some of the strangest beats, check out Fishscale. Ghostface ain't coastin' the older he gets, if anything he's better than ever. [/b]

The Coup, Pick a Bigger Weapon.

This review is (specifically) for Tony Wilson & ZombieZoneSolutions, and in general for anyone who's interested in agit-music, anyone who thinks hip-hop 'taint got anything to say aside from bling and hyphy and anyone who thinks funk 'n the revolution can go hand in hymen.

It's not much of a stretch to say the Coup is one of the most under-appreciated acts the hip-hop world has ever produced. It ain't exactly easy to market Communist/Socialist Revolutionary funk 'n soul from a band who's only claim to fame is their eerily prescient cover for their 2001 album Party Music...Image

...now before anyone goes and gets their panties in a bunch over that, just know that that cover was created in June/July 2001 and was NEVER EVER actually used on a real CD (75 Ark flat out rejected it in the wake of that day of infamy).

But that's the type of act I'm writing about here...one that's ready willing and able to lead the revolution, but, BUT, also knows that simply writing about said revolution w/out beats, rhymes & life (aka, sex, drugs, good times) is boring. Hence the title of that seminal album, PARTY MUSIC.

Now, sometimes it's just best to begin at the beginning. Courtesy of one of the best music bloggers for those into old soul, funk, hip-hop, boogaloo, dub...ya know, LIFE music. Oh, and to all hip-hop heads, Oliver Wang was part of Soul-Sides, and wrote the liner notes to the Soul-Sides greatest hits comp.

I Ain't the N----

Dig It!

Takin' These (Remix)

Now, some stuff off the new one, courtesy of the official band page...

My Favorite Mutiny

We Are the Ones

Notice some of the differences from the early years to the current album. Gone is the sole reliance on samples and scratching. On My Favorite Mutiny alone we have bass, baby grand piano(!), strings(!!), guitar, percussion...ya' know, a band. And a pretty tight funky one at that. That's what some of us like to call growth, something every band worth a lick will do to survive in the 'biz.

Since it's best to let a man speak in his own words, here's that crazy hip-hop head himself Noz, da' man behind Cocaine & Blunts interviewing the male half (oh, you want progressive, how 'bout DJ Pam the Funktress, the Queen of Lady turntablists, bein' the other half?) hisself, Oakland's proud native son Boots Riley. (scroll down for part 1 you lazy fucks)

Still not convinced yet oh loyal (and I'm sure bored reader)? How 'bout this for album titles...

Kill My Landlord (1992)
Genocide and Juice (1994) *get the reference?*
Steal This Album (1998) *ditto?*
Party Music(2001)

Still need more (jeebus, tough crowd!), how 'bout some memorable song titles...

Me and Jesus the Pimp, 20,000 Gun Salute, 5 Million Ways to Kill a CEO (heh), Ghetto Manifesto, Bullets and Love, Head (Of State) and my personal fave off the new one, BabyLet'sHaveABabyBeforeBushDoSomethin'Crazy (HAHAhaha...oh).

WHAT!? You need more to really convince you to remain on your lazy ass and open up your fave legal and or file sharing software and download some great music?!?!? How 'bout some select lyrics...

"I'm here to laugh, love, fuck and drink liquor
and help the damn revolution come quicker" (where I nicked my sig line from)

"Bush and Hussein together in bed / Giving H-E-A-D: head
Y'all motherfuckas heard what we said / Billions made and millions dead...
Now listen up close to what I say / The C.I.A. worked for Standard Oil
And other companies to whom they're loyal..."

"Tell him it's a boom in child prostitution / When he show up at the stroll give him lead restitution
You could throw a twenty in a vat 'o hot oil / When he jump in after it watch him boil
Toss a dollar in the river and when he jump in / If you can find he can swim / put lead boots on him and do it again!"

"Cash is made in lump sums as street bums eat crumbs / So I defeat scum as I beat drums
Rum-tiddy-tum like the little drummer boy song / Here comes the landlord at the door, ding dong / Is it wrong that my momma sticks a fat-ass thong
Up his anal cavity cause he causes gravity to my family?"

That's it, no more, 'nuthin to see here. Enjoy.

I just picked up the Flaming Lips' new album At War With the Mystics and, after only two listens, I think it probably beats Yoshimi and Bulletin (although I have to say, I've never bought the ten albums that you have to play at once). I don't really have the time to get into it right now (as if anyone would read what I have to say in the first place), so I'll just post a link to a review which echoes my sentiments more eloquently: Click Here For At War With the Mystics Review.

At War With The Mystics is an ace album. And it is Zaireeka you are thinking of, the four disc epic that you have to listen to at the same time (all four discs that is) to actually hear the music. It is muchos bizzaro!

I don't think it beats Yoshimi in terms of excellence, but then again, that was the album that introduced me to them (well, it wasn't it was a live show that introduced me to them).

At War With The Mystics is definatly the best album I have purchased this year.

As for the Editors, I saw them in Glasgow when they supported Franz Ferdinand (overrated crap imho) and they definatly interested me. I haven't went out and picked up their album, as I am a bit worried that their music all sounds the same. Munich is definatly a good song though.

I am getting a chance to see them again at this years T in the Park, which should be fun, and I just hope that they don't clash with anyone.

On another note, Primal Scream's new material is supposed to be great. I managed to hear a few songs when they played at my work and it was fairly good. Not really my style of music. Rock City Blues I think the new album is called.

speaking of which, Just Like the Fambly Cat was officially released today (in the States at any rate).

I love it, perfect summation of their sound and career.

Only two real "pop genius" tracks (and shocking for Grandaddy, they come rather late in the album) "Disconnecty" and "Elevate Myself" but the rest of the album finds a nice mid-tempo groove. Perfect for a long drive, a glass of wine and a Vicodin chill (*note do not take a long drive with a glass of wine and Vicodin, these are seperate activities!*) session...I'm gonna miss them.
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

A good friend of mine just will not stop talking about Wolfmother. They've got an awfully large sound for a three-piece band.

Anyone know if the Mars Volta are working on another album?

man, am I the only one not really feeling them on this board?

I like Sabbath as much as the next guy, but their slavish devotion to mimicking (and not just Sabbath, but "Apple Tree" rips off the White Stripes BIG TIME) the past is leaving me cold.

It does rip and all, that is a huge sound coming from a 3 piece, I guess they're young and I'll give it up that the potential upside for the band is immense, but it hasn't grown on me yet.

Prediction:

Y'all gonna hate on the style we create, straight 2008.

I'm gonna go ahead and say fuck the Yeah Yeah Yeah's, simply because Karen O is dangerously close to becoming the new Courtney Love. I did dig the single, I like how they signed onto a major label only to get "Maps" some airtime, then watch a bunch of depressed teenage girls listen to the rest of the CD in confusion.

I'm wondering if the Killers can create another album that's as good, if you like that sort of music.

Wu Tang just did that indie album, and Gza can't seem to go more than a week without releasing some sort of compilation. Here's hoping MF Doom gets paired with a competent producer again (Dangermouse good, Madlib bad.). All good times.


I was wrong.

I just got the new Sepultura, Dante XXI and it is great.

im totally with you dude. although i will take it a step further, and lump them in the group that i like to call "the giant aught's rehash coallition". im sure this is going to raise peoples dander, but there are just so many bands making money right now off of four simple words: been, there, done, and that. wolfmother is easily one of these bands.

I'm enjoying them. It's not anything I'll be listening to 10 years from now, but they've got some great riffage (if that's even a word). I'm feeling the same way about Damone (iTunes had a free download a couple of weeks ago). It's nothing I haven't heard before but still a lot of fun.

Yep, yep - I'll take it a step further and say they're shite. :D

I have to turn off the radio when they come on - wince inducing - how have they managed to suck so many in to this poor rehash?

Dude! Drummer since the age of 10! We already know about Brock. Hey Dog, please tell me you play the keys :) It'd be like a real life version of "Joe's Garage"!

I think we'd make a sweet Alan Parsons Project cover band.

"Damned If I Do"... now with saxophone!

EDIT: and right on cue "Formed A Band" by Art Brut comes on... thanks for recommending that btw KCBC.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

sorry, just lost a long post about how we should form a kickass orchestral ensemble (something about a "blitzkrieg of sonic cacaphony") when in my haste to get to photobucket I didn't open a new browser window, and POOF, like that, it was gone :cry:.

Glad you like 'em.

Were you / are you into Wire at all? Just found out Elastica nicked a riff off them, and have loved what I've heard so far...
