• new batch of new music [31/03/12]

    i've been on a soulseek spree recently, and decided to tick off as much as i could from my wishlist (which i tag as ). i thought it might be nice to keep track of everything i downloaded and write my opinion after i'd given each album a proper listen. not sure how useful this will be to other people, but i like to keep note of these things. most of these albums are from bands i've never heard before, a couple are from bands i'm familiar with, and the rest are from bands i already know and love.

    edit: i have been kind of overwhelmed by the amount of music i downloaded and have been avoiding it and just listening to the b-52's over and over. i gave in and just started shuffling all of it. i promise i will listen to these albums properly eventually. i am not a bad music fan i swear i am an adult human being who is not afraid of albums

    Destroyalldreamers - À Coeur Léger Sommeil Sanglant

    Top 10 (or so) Albums for the Year 2011

    With another year coming to a close, it is time to sit back and refelct on what has happened. We saw "occupy" take on a new meaning as the proletariat class attempted to right the wrongs committed by an unregulated financial monster. We witnessed Google strive to become the next behemoth of social media, aspiring to do to Facebook what it had done to Myspace and Friendster. We marked the death of a visionary, only to see his legend live on with the unveiling of a disappointment to most, the iPhone 4S, not 5. And in music, you watched the rise of both talented (Adele) and talentless (Rebecca Black) singers, to successes no longer thought possible in the music industry, thanks to both viral videos and an ever more discerning ear from the public. Again it is time for me to attempt to sift through the masses of shit, and deliver the golden kernels of joy that I thought delivered something unique in a year laden with letdowns. …

  • Rolo Tomassi - Hysterics

    31. Okt. 2008, 22:59 von JJP666

    Relentless, maniacal debut from one of the hottest bands in Britain

    1. "Oh. Hello Ghost" (3:33)
    2. "I Love Turbulence" (2:48)
    3. "Fofteen" (2:45)
    4. "Abraxas" (2:26)
    5. "An Apology To The Universe" (1:18)
    6. "Nine" (4:03)
    7. "Macabre Charade" (3:48)

    10. "Scabs" (4:31)
    11. "Fantasia" (14:21)

    The hype surrounding Sheffield noisecore newcomers Rolo Tomassi has soared emphatically in recent months, their appearance at this summer's Download festival being a major factor, almost universally regarded as one of the main highlights of the entire weekend. Some of the band members may only be approaching the end of their teenage years, but an astute sense of professionalism and maturity is extremely evident within the band, whose achievements already exceed those of numerous supposedly more experienced groups. …

  • my little findings. 14.06.2008.

    14. Jun. 2008, 8:19 von xShedx

    Hello, dear journal ;)
    Today i'll tell you not long, but i hope interesting story about my journey in internet and some nice findings that i've got :)

    1) Stray from the Path - "People Over Profit" (2002), "Audio Prozac" (2003) & "Villains" (2008).

    First time when i saw the name of this band long time ago, but due to some strange reasons i didn't pay attention to them and didn't download. But few days ago i found them on poster of some tour in US with such a great bands like American Me and Iwrestledabearonce (i guess, i remember right :)). So after it i decided to get these guys. I've got only 3 albums of 4, 'cause i didn't find anywhere link to 2005 album, or it's 2006, doesn't matter. Anyway, these guys rock! They play crazy mix of chaotic hardcore, maybe technical metalcore, some jazz influences, even sometimes funk, and sometimes they remind me Converge, don't know why, actually these bands aren't similar at all. …
  • Concerts I've Attended: The Locust (23-06-07)

    21. Apr. 2008, 16:09 von looooooooooooop

    The Locust

    Maybe New Erections isn't that spazztic as Plague Soundscapes or The Locust but they still have that Devo on Meth mixed with a full bottle of Schnapps sound, they were like getting fucked by a truck and strangely get up to get fucked again by the same truck, really, you can notice how they were adjusting the tone of their guitar and basses taking like 2 or 3 minutes, and playing a 20 seconds song, that's the shit.

    This concert was so epic, specially because i was dying to see Maniqui Lazer a "local" band with furious live performances and that's exactly what they did, well about the other performances before Maniqui Lazer they suck really hard, and bored the hell out of me. Then The Locust took their places with the drumset at the center of the stage, the synth in the right and the guitar and bass on the other side, they were using costumes as always except Gabe Serbian who was shirtless and only wearing the mask (he has funny tatoos…

  • Best of 2007

    7. Nov. 2007, 22:47 von carmenthepuffin

    Behold my extremely scientifically chosen TOP 10 of 2007. What? There's two months left in 2007? No one gives a shit. HERE THEY GO:

    10. Holy Molar - Cavity Search. Five songs, each one with its own personality. Most improved of the year. Hardcore. Favorite Track: "My Saturday Night Fever Turned into a Sunday Morning Rash"

    9. Cutting Pink With Knives - Populuxxe. Completely new and fresh take on cyber-/hard-/grindcore.

    8. Thurston Moore - Trees Outside The Academy. So cute. Much like "Psychic Hearts," but with the most adorable final track ever. Fun Fact: I'm pretty sure I saw Thurston Moore in person one time, but he passed by too quickly. Favorite track: "Wonderful Witches."

    7. PRE - Epic Fits. This band spent the night in my house and gave me their CD as payment. It's wild, loud, noisy, screechy--basically everything music should be? My school's newspaper hated them; that should tell you how fantastic they are.

    6. Magik Markers - BOSS. One of the most accessible on the list (as in, there's no screaming). Their best, I think. Post-punk. Favorite track: "Circle"
