I got Menomena on preorder and had, until I discovered Cerys Matthews' cover of Soul Love, it on my profile. Fucking excellent stuff, reminds me of The Beta Band.

and yes, just like KC said, this list consists of stuff that i am hearing for the first time in 2007. these were not necessarily released in 2007.

the only exception would be soundtracks. there is a good chance that at least some of the stuff on any given soundtrack i will have heard before. but if it gets listed, that means that 2K7 is the first time that i have listened to a soundtrack in its entirety, and not in the movie, game, or tv show that it is from.

oh yeah, and as you can obviously see, i have waaay more time to listen to records than i do to watch movies. *sigh* c'est la vie, no?

one more caveat i would like to add. just because I have listened to an entire album for the first time this year, does not mean i am wholly unfamiliar with some to most of the work contained on said album. but this is the first time i have listened to the entire album in its entirety.

yeah, kinda pointless when doing albums. Plus, with leaks making release dates irrelevant, with albums being cultural artifacts one keeps coming back to over time, with the interblag having practically every bit of music ever recorded somewhere in it's darkest nethers...yeah, date of first listen or whatever shouldn't really come into play here.

just stuff you first heard in 2k7 should suffice...

Wow, some of you are really into music. I don't really listen to that much music, and when I do, it's rarely "hip" or something new. I like what I like, and like an old bastard with the high dollar Fixodent, I'm stuck in my ways.

EDIT: Oh, and it's cool to get a mention in another thread! Sorry, guess I'm not used to the Zone "popularity."

OK, so just new releases/first hears in '07?

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - Some Loud Thunder 8/10
The Hold Steady - Boys and Girls...... 9/10
Clipse - Hell Hath No Fury 8/10
The Shins - Wincing The Night Away 8/10
Jamie T - Panic Prevention 8/10
The View - Hats off To The Buskers 2/10
Deerhunter - Cryptograms 8/10
Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? 8/10
Klaxons - Myths Of The Near Future 6/10
Bloc Party - A Weekend In The City 4/10
Arcade Fire - Neon Bible 8/10
The Decemberists - The Crane Wife 9/10
4 Hero - Play With The Changes 5/10
Grinderman - 9/10
Bat for Lashes - Fur and Gold 8/10
Tracey Thorn - Out of the Woods 6/10
The Rakes - Ten New Messages 7/10
Panda Bear - Person Pitch 8/10
The Ponys - Turn The Lights Out. 6/10
LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver 10/10
The best Talking Heads album ever? Quite possibly, that's praise enough.
Cat Power - You Are Free 9/10
Kings of Leon - Because of the Times 4/10
Modest Mouse - We Were Dead......... 8/10
Bjork - Volta 7/10
Battles - Mirrored 10/10
You know, if this record had not been released on WARP I probably would have ignored it. Being a long time fan of many of their artists coupled with the fact Pitchfork +9'd it meant I had to click on the download button. Very thankful I did, easily my most played this year, partly due to the fact I still have a lot to discover - every listen is making me greaten my respect for the invention and talent that has gone into Mirrored.
Cold War Kids - Robbers and Cowards 4/10
The National - Boxer 10/10
I haven't seen anyone ( I mentioned it in Now Listening ) love or hate 'Boxer', the new album by The National, so thought I'd bring it up as I went to see them on Wednesday night. I know SFG has listened to it from his blag, but not really seen any comment anywhere else ( unless I missed it ) on the zone.
Boxer is getting rave reviews all over the place with an equal amount of negative comment too. That's why I mentioned love or hate, I really think this is one of those albums. I can see some people would back away from Boxer as it does flirt with areas of melody that Coldplay and the ilk inhabit, but Matt Berninger's ( lead singer ) vocals and lyrics lift the 12 songs way above any of those contemporaries.
It's a record of stark beauty, a claustrophobic blanket of sound ( if you'll indulge that ) - the songs differ in tempo but you can tell they all come from the band enjoying what they do and all being in sync with each other artistically. This gives the album an amazing consistency of sound, with some wonderful arrangements ( Sufjan guests on a couple of tracks ) across it's running time.
I've 10/10'd Boxer, it ticks every box you could wish for, and whilst obviously walking a tightrope over middle-of-the-roadness, the inherent beauty and emotive core The National have crafted take Boxer somewhere else entirely.

Matthew Dear - Asa Breed 9/10
The National - Alligator 9/10
Dizzee Rascal - Maths + English 6/10
Grizzly Bear - Yellow House 7/10
Les Breastfeeders - Déjeuner sur l'herbe 7/10
Simian Mobile Disco - Attack Decay Sustain Release 8/10
White Stripes - Icky Thump 7/10
Yacht - I Believe In You. Your Magic Is Real 9/10
Burial - Burial 9/10
Cat Power - The Greatest 9/10
Apparat - Walls 9/10
Burial - Ghost Hardware EP 10/10
Blitzen Trapper - Wild Mountain Nation 8/10
Interpol - Our Love To Admire 7/10
Well I was expecting a little more than this. They've taken the blueprints for TOTBL and Antics, photocopied them one on top of another and come out with a feint image. Bad analogy but that's all this is. Still solid Interpol, but they need to try harder than this. Disappointing, it may grow on me, but I've listened to it a lot.
New Young Pony Club - Fantastic Playroom 9/10
Now I knew I was going to like this as I love all the singles, but damn, this is a great pop record. A museum of new wave & 80's electronic riffs and whilst it feels like pastiche, NYPC know exactly what they are doing - Opener Get Lucky and The Get Go are excellent.
Spoon - Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga 6/10
Asobi Seksu - Citrus 9/10
M.I.A. Kala 10/10
That has to be the best set of beats put down for an album, for well, ages. M.I.A. is like some sort of day-glo musical chameleon.
Any other artists taking on some of these tracks would seem cliched or just plain crazy but MIA just seems to exude cool quality. She's obviously in full control of her artistic choices, sure they may come across as knowing but they sure sound great.
All the singles are excellent, but what we haven't heard already really is something else, 20 Dollar and Paper Planes are the songs of the year.

Okkervil River - The Stage Names 9/10
Feist - The Reminder 8/10

So how's busdriver? I'm about to "purchase" it, but I'd like a little bit of an idea how it is.
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

Old. School! I'm shocked, and kinda glad, that you're so forthcoming in listing albums that someone like me can point and laugh at you for not ever having to listened to before!

What say you to my oft-said line that Eminem was nothing more than a white version of Slick Rick?

Brocktune wrote:El-P - "Collecting the Kid"


do you dig El-Producto's beats? 'Cuz I'm thinking of sending you Cannibal Ox's The Cold Vein if you haven't heard it before...

whadja think? Post-punky goodness or non-musician hackitude?

MagicMonkey, you listen to anything new in February?!?

holy mother of your god!

if, like me, you plum almost didn't realize that your emusic plan was going to restart tomorrow, you can do loads worse than the 20minute freakout that is the Boredoms "7(Boriginal)", off Super Roots 7 (natch).

using beloved, commercially forgotten but critical darlings The Mekons "Where Were You?" guitar riff as a starting point, building 'n building swirling tribal drums until at about the 12minute mark the track just blows the fuck up and careens into the stratosphere.

also picked up Hex Enduction Hour by post-punk stalwarts and massive Pavement influencer's The Fall. I've picked up Fall comps before, never really knowing where to begin with a band whose catalog spans nearly 30 years (and still growing) worth of material...couple that with the fact Mark E. Smith jettisons band members with every new album and a neophyte is left with no choice but to go the comp route.

but mad dog god dam (spot that reference, win a no-prize!), THIS is where you start with them!

Old. School! I'm shocked, and kinda glad, that you're so forthcoming in listing albums that someone like me can point and laugh at you for not ever having to listened to before!

What say you to my oft-said line that Eminem was nothing more than a white version of Slick Rick?


hahaha. point away, and laugh your heart out. when i was a youth, they didnt have crazy things like this newfangled interweb. consequently, i actually had to pay for my records. so as im sure you can imagine, my records were sparse in number, but well worn. those three records definitely took a lot longer to get around to than they should have. but in my defense, when i should have been listening to those, i was listening to other mc's. n.w.a, eazy-e, ice-t, dana dane (you heard right, go ahead and keep laughing), run dmc, P.E., etc., etc. its probably a good thing though, as i really couldnt get into BDP. i mean, jack of spades was a cool song. but i find their beats frustratingly sparse, and i just cant connect with krs-one. i dont know what it is, but i was left feeling let down by what is pretty much universally hailed as one of, if not the, most important rap record of all times.

and as far as eminem being nothing more than a broke-ass slick rick, all i can say is he wishes. he could never EVER be that cool. although, to be fair, eminem is a more cunning linguist, but he is also a lot more boring. i mean i like songs about beating the shit out of your girlfriend as much as the next guy. but a whole album? come on. and like i said, the ruler has cool in fucking spades. the kind of cool that marshall could only dream of possessing.

do you dig El-Producto's beats? 'Cuz I'm thinking of sending you Cannibal Ox's The Cold Vein if you haven't heard it before...


no, i havent. to be honest, at first, i wasnt too into it. but then i did some research, and it turns out that collecting the kid is a bit of an outtakes album, and probably not the best place to start off. and to be fair, there were at least a couple of tracks that piqued my interest. i would definitely be down to hear some more. hopefully his other singles/comps have more of the stuff that sounded good.

whadja think? Post-punky goodness or non-musician hackitude?


loved it.
it kind of suffers from a bit of a run-on feeling. but that could also be a result of the fact that the disc (or discs) is pretty much a complete compendium. like im sure i wouldnt get that feeling as much if i put one of the original vinyls on, you know. but yeah, the record is kick ass in all kinds of ways. i like it quite a bit.

oh yeah, and nice mention of the mekons. i have 2 or 3 of their albums that have been waiting for a listen for quite some time. i would just bring them into work, but my boss (who i have had to spend a lot more time with recently) cant really handle too much that is out of the ordinary. and i would rather listen to my beatles records all day for the ten million-billionth time, than put myself in a position to have the mekons taken off only to have it replaced with elton john or some shit, you know?

Andrew Bird - "The Mysterious Production of Eggs"


Que? You turned me on to this one over a year ago! You've only just heard the whole thing?

By the way, new Andrew Bird Armchair Apocrypha releases in March. Also, I was shocked to see him on one of my kid's favorite shows "Jack's Big Music Show" on Noggin. No acting skills whatsover, but fun to see him nonetheless.

I'll have to work on my list!

yeah. that was one of those "i have to get this the day it comes out" records, that i didnt end up having the money for. :sad: i know, its both deplorable, and detestable of me. but, i knew how good it would be, so there was no shame in recommending it. at least thats how i felt at the time

he was on a show? man that is awesome. did he play? although its no surprise that he cant act. seriously. meeting him in person, he seemed a little cold and wooden, so i can only imagine how he would be in front of the camera. the first time i met him, he was like all cold and stoic. but the rest of the guys in the BoF were stoked to talk to me, and super happy to sign my shit. so dark, so brooding, so obtusely intellectual. oh, mr. bird, the fact that i know you would loathe me makes me love you even more. man, thanks for the heads up Alphonzo. i gotta check youtube for that shit!

Andrew "too cool for the likes of you" Bird played a magical stringed-instrument repairman named "Dr. Stringz". He sang a silly song, played a violin and a mandolin, and that was that. It looks like the only youtube video of it has been pulled due to a rights violation. Fuckin' Google. Anyway, here's an mp3 that takes, like, five years to upload:Dr Stringz mp3

for a short month, that's a long list...

out of all of 'em, I gotta ask about Omar and Damo Suzuki?!? - Please Heat This Eventually, and Bill Callahan (Smog? Fucking Joanna Newsom?) - Woke on A Whaleheart.

oh yeah, which albums do you like/recommend?

I was listening to the Bill Callahan on the way into work today but haven't really formed an oppinion yet.

The Omar and Damo is basic guitar masterbtion just like most of his post ATDI stuff.

I will formulate some concrete recs later.

Is this the same sort of feel as the rest of the Animal Collective stuff? I've been considering picking it up on e-music, 'cause of the acclaim I've been hearing... but I'll be damned if I can get into the Animal Collective sound.

Not really like the Animal collective stuff more like experimental Brian Wilson/Beach Boys stuff. The songs are long and can change quite a bit over their runtime.

I was just going to say, that this thread is so delisciously hispterly that it makes me want to give up right now and retire to a life of slippers, armchairs and vitimin flavoured, bran supllimented baked goods.

Possibly flapjacks.

With resources allowing, I can't manage more than a few albums and a generous scattering of this or that a week, at peak rate.

(although part of that I suspect, is that you guys are dl & spinnng whole albums at a time, as apposed to my more random escapades)

KC, Brock, Tony, SFG, Sepp, Dog, Phonz, - your appetites, (and your frickin' aquisitional abilities), for musicality, gone done gives me hipster-pangs all in my loinal areas.

I get to listen to a lot of stuff at work as my job is very independent. Right now I am listening to The F*cking Champs - VI as I do my work and read various sites.

you know I didn't go for Animal Collective either, Phonz, but even I got to admit that Panda Bear is pretty darn good.

the longer jams are the ones I'm especially keen on. It does sorta come across like a hippie-dippie jam session at times, but there's a nice sense of melody and rhythm throughout.

doesn't deserve the 9.4 that P4K gave it, but so little does...

well, i cant speak for anyone but myself on this one, but i suppose the upshot of being a complete loser is that at least i get to listen to records all day.

and any day you would like a little assistance in the art of "acquiring" new sounds, you know im always just a pm away bro.
