13 Jan 2010, 23:57 by ibentmywookie#7 – Neon Indian – Psychic Chasms
This album was as much of a surprise to me as it was fun. I found myself wading through the pretentious reviews of Pitchfork and read about this album after noticing both its high score and wild cover art. Review scores don’t mean a whole lot to me, especially coming from a website that seems to pride itself on looking down on anything that uses a familiar structure and placing goofy, avant garde tripe on a pedestal. A new feature I noticed on their website however was a built-in “lala” application that allows you to listen to each and every song on the album in its entirety for free. With nothing to lose I picked a couple tracks and discovered something that while unique sounding, isn’t full of itself. The catch of the lala app is that you can only ‘spin’ the tracks once, any subsequent listens will only yield a 30-second sample to refresh your memory akin to Amazon or iTunes. But the ability to listen to a song in its entirety is a god-send, especially for music such as Neon Indian. …
13 Jan 2010, 12:57 by IliaPopLet's begin with the releases by the Grizzly Animal Projectors, which were not very album albums for me, but were dominated by a few magical singles. On Veckatimest, 'Two Weeks' is truly sublime, but I found myself preferring the angrier, rockier 'While You Wait for the Others', which always reminds me of Built to Spill for some reason. Bitte Orca is somewhat marred by the exasperating 'Useful Chamber', but 'Stillness Is the Move' is epic, and I do like the way 'Temecula Sunrise' is always falling apart only to gather itself back together again just in time for the singalong chorus. And the delerious groove of 'Summertime Clothes' is my other highlight of Merriweather Post Pavilion.
In other news. The xx remix (or is it a cover?) of Florence's 'You've Got the Love' is a slinky, sexy masterpiece. The best thing either artist has put their name to. On The Big Pink's 'Dominoes'. To echo Kieron Gillen, misogyny is OK if you have a big enough hook. …
9 Jan 2010, 16:25 by brambilla77Happy 2010 to all of you!
Here is my top list of 2009 containing albums, track and gigs.
Feel free to share your opinion!
1/ Bill Callahan - Sometimes I Wish We Were an Eagle
Mr. Smog made an album that surpassed all his previous efforts. A little gem with lush instrumentations, clever lyrics and a leading role for the warm voice of Bill Callahan himself.
listen to: Too Many Birds / All Thoughts are Prey to Some Beast
2/ The XX - xx
Question: what is left of The XX once you erase all the hype around them? Answer: absolutely the same! Melancholy songs drenched in fuzzy guitars and electronics. Very curious to see them live in 2010.
listen to: Crystalised
3/ Fever Ray - Fever Ray
Karin Dreijer Andersson proves that she can create haunting electronica without her brother Olof too. …
6 Jan 2010, 21:55 by Starfishj03110.Wolf Eyes “Stabbed in the Face” Burned Mind( 2004)
The Part Where It Goes Silent and Then Comes Back (1:58).
If you made it this far into the song you’re either thinking this is the greatest song ever or you’re dying (literally) for it to be over…or you’re indifferent to it..or you think it’s just sort of OK, I mean how the fuck do I know what you think about it, I’m not a scientist. Merzbow once said that Noise "is the pornography of music", if that’s true then this part is when the dude pulls out, flips the chick over and then the TV goes back to being blurry and scrambled and you’re like “holy shit, I almost got to see some anal”. This part is sweet because if you don’t like it you’ll let out an exhale of relief before you get smacked in the cunt with more noise. I used to listen to Wolf Eyes very loudly as I rode the subway and pushed my way through large crowds around the city, I’m not sure what that says about me but I'm sure its something.
09.Neon Indian “Deadbeat Summer” Psychic Chasms (2009)
2 Jan 2010, 23:00 by lizvelreneNote: because apparently I am much too long-winded for this site, I have been forced to split this into two posts. Part 2 is here.
You must understand. Since I joined Last.fm in 2006 one of my number-one tags has been "synthpop". Or "New Wave" or "darkwave" or any of a dozen other labels for what adds up to be glorious beauteous 1980's-era synthesizer-laden pop music. I liked it enough the first time around, but ever since I picked up The Human League's "Dare" in a dollar bin early on in the 2000's and went on to obsessively collect New Wave vinyl records I have been rapturously in love with the sound. Not, I must hasten to explain, the drippy wallpaper synths that come up as background for cheesy soft rockers like Phil Collins and people who ought to know better like Fiona Apple. I mean front-and-center synths, Thompson Twins synths, Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark synths, DAN-CING WITH TEEEARS IN MY EEEEEYES synths.
(As usual for me, There's a Playlist For That: kiss them for me.)
