5 Jan 2009, 19:54 by kenny_scottI love The Delgados. At least, I love half of The Delgados. To be precise, I love Emma Pollock's contributions to the now-defunct band. Although their songs are credited to the band, they were actually written by either Emma or Alun Woodward. It's easy to tell who wrote what, as they also took the lead vocals on their own songs. So, for Universal Audio, for instance, Emma's contributions include I Fought The Angels, Everybody Come Down and Sink Or Swim. Emma's contributions are consistently stronger than Alun's mixed bag of offerings. I'm tempted to put together my own "Best of Delgados" album with just Emma's songs on...
9 Oct 2007, 07:22 by s0r05000The Delgados album Universal Audio, has somehow emerged from my shelf again. To be completely accurate, i have been occupied with listening to punk rock lately. A lot of it. But still i find this Delgados' album to be very appealing. Melodies kick the shit out of all Belle & Sebastian songs and i'm able to listen this over and over. I think this is probably the best band in indie scene ever. Soft, but still has some needed edge to it.
Tracks like Everybody Come Down and Keep On Breathing have this Built to Spill mood, that is hard to capture from todays indie. I guess my changing to punk rock is mainly because i haven't been able to find any good stuff from other genres.
This record is not new, but still i find myself listening to it. Very good record. I recommend it to everyone who has missed The Delgados earlier.

14 Jul 2006, 06:06 by kiwi_moon_juiceSo I finally uploaded the two CDs, Hot Fuss and Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not. I also finally got some neighbors!!! But now that I've got them, I don't care as much anymore. I meant to post all this on Wednesday. And fittingly, I joined this group.
Turns out Triple Negative did post the time their show was happening. It was at 4. I realized this at 4:57. Oh well. They have a few more shows this summer. And if you guys could possibly vote "Yes" for my image of them, I'd be very grateful.
I'm also a subscriber as of today (well now it's yesterday) and will be for a whole month. Too bad I won't have much time to enjoy it...
Yes, on Sunday, I'm leaving for my trip to the UK. Several days in London and the rest of the month in Scotland. So I'm making a couple playlists for my stay there: One made up of English music, and a second with songs from Scottish artists. I figure I should make up some totally different playlists since I know I'll quickly…
