29 Ene 2009, 5:53 de cal_cool_usThere's a substantial nationwide noise/drone/avant-garde scene in the music world today. If you listen to any 2 of these bands, you are likely to come across the others. And the numbers keep growing continuously with new and debuting albums. A couple of these band are my earlier favorites, and with the help of music networks/the internet, I stumbled into what seems like a promising music scene for people who actually listen to music instead of just reading the cover of Spin.
Raccoo-oo-oon (RIP, just broke up)
Gang Gang Dance
To Kill a Petty Bourgeoisie
Atlas Sound (distilling the ambience of his main project Deerhunter)
Times New Viking
The Mae Shi (now they are popular)
Arab on Radar
...and international noise...
And labels devoted to noise/drone/other certainly help push this sound - especially Kranky…
21 Feb 2008, 4:00 de OnionPalacIt's a shame how with so much music being so easily accessible through the internet these days that more and more people are not devoting enough time to great albums. I often hear about people simply listening to one album, if that, and then moving on to the next bundle of files they downloaded without much of a chance of the previous albums being returned to multiple times to become part of that person's life. Where I come from we would call these people posers.
I encourage everyone to actually listen to the albums that speak to them. Return to them many times and live them.
Below I made a few lists of music that meant a lot to me in 2007.
These are lists for music that:
*was released in 2007 that I fell in love with
*I discovered and fell in love with in 2007, but was released in another year
*I rediscovered and fell in love with again in 2007. I tried to keep this down to music I have not listened to for ten years or more.

7 Ene 2008, 1:33 de TKAlex҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉҉i Ok, avrei voluto ascoltare qualche disco in più, ma di questo passo a giugno ancora non avrò stilato una classifica, e nel frattempo mi sarò dimenticato qualcosa.
E' giunta quindi l'ora di buttar giù qualche nome che ha reso speciale questo 2007.
1.Hearts Of Black Science - The Ghost You've Left Behind
2.Vladislav Delay - Whistleblower
3.Strategy - Future Rock
4.Beirut - The Flying Tea Cup
5.Black Lips - Los Valientes del Mundo Nuevo
6.Burial - Untrue
7.Hans Appelqvist - Sifantin och mörkret
8.To Kill a Petty Bourgeoisie - The Patron
9.The Field - From Here We Go Sublime
10.Parts & Labor - Mapmaker
Ero molto indeciso sulla prima posizione: da una parte il synth indie pop degli Heart Of Black Science, dall'altra le installazioni dub di Sasu Ripatti, entrambi in grado di trasmettermi sensazioni come pochi altri dischi. …
