  • Super 8 of 2008

    20 Dic 2008, 18:16 de twoism2

    Super 8 of 2008 and other meaningless banter that probably only interests me.

    Overall, this year seems a little disappointing as compared to the last two years. Don't get me wrong, there were a lot of solid releases but nothing really blew me away or demanded that I listen to it 40 or 50 times like several of my top rated picks from last year did.

    I really noticed that this year i'm experiencing a general malaise over listening to new post-rock material. For the most part the genre is bloated and boring.....as far as 2008 I didn't hear any overall great post rock albums.

    Missed the Bus Award:

    Deaf Center - I finally got around to really diggin the works of these two guys. In fact, i tracked down all their solo works/ side projects(nest, sverte greiner). Antique, cinematic, eerie are words that come to describe their music. Would it be correct to anoint them the architects of the dark ambient/classical sound that seemed to spawn artists like library tapes, jacaszek, rafael anton irissari ect. …
  • Adds to the iPod Early September....

    8 Sep 2008, 15:25 de Rigel_Kent

    Things have kind of slowed down as far as adds go this last month...don't know why. Anyway...
    Pink Floyd - Meddle
    Tomorrowland - Sequence of the Negative Space Changes
    Roy Montgomery - True
    Various Artists - An Anthology Of Noise and Electronic Music / First a-Chronology (1921-2001), An Anthology Of Noise and Electronic Music / Second a-Chronology(1936-2003)
    Mark Isham - Tibet
    Bass Communion - Continuum,
    ....and various downloads.

    I have *no* idea how I missed putting Meddle on the iPod. All I know is I was planning on playing my wife the similarities between the Doctor Who Theme and "One Of These Days" and realized I didn't have the studio version! Well, that's fixed anyway (and I've been reading Nick Mason's book "Inside Out" for the last week too....naughty me).
    Continuum is actually a collaboration between BC and vidnaObamna....the second I have heard of but not heard.
    True is a collab between Montgomery and Chris Heaphy, whom I haven't heard of either. …

    Getting back into regular listening patterns.

    1 Green Day 14
    OMG dey r so not punx!!11 Green Day is one band I have loved for years, ever since Warning was their hit record and I bought Nimrod instead, they've had a special place in my hear. Nimrod is a really amazing album. And I'll say it, I like parts of American Idiot, there is some decent and catchy songs on that album, but there is also a lot of crap. But I love listening to Green Day when I'm down or want a trip down memory lane. They are wonderful.

    1 Descendents 14
    I was in a pop-punky mood, so I threw on Milo Goes to College. As always, it was great. Really fun, really catchy, easy to relate to. The perfect pop-punk album.

    1 Camille Saint-Säens 14
    This was a new one for me. Saine-Säens is a French composer and he composed a suite called Carnival of the Animals. The part called "Aquariam" was performed by Dick Dale as the old music for Space Mountain…
