It's been too long. Mods, I know the last thread got too big and my understanding of bandwidth is limited, but maybe we could give it a shot and close the thread down after 10 pages or something? Feel free to close if you need to, just thought I'd try.

I'm listening to good old Blur. 13, which is actually my favorite album of theirs.

I loathed the closing of the last thread. Good call bringing back, even for a short-lived existence.

If you can find it, I liked the Puppini Sisters version of Walk Like an Egyptian. Bad songs are always better with Andrews Sisters' style harmonies.

I'll take this opportunity to pimp a Boulder, Colorado alt-country outfit called Crowboy:

I must admit to pulling out Neil Diamond's Greatest Hits after watching him on Idol last week. The man's lack of shame while trying to entertain is incredible. Just listen to him as on "Red Red Wine" as he improvises "Everybody's having fun as we and UB40 are number 1"

Axl Rose always wanted to be John Lennon

Slash always wanted to be Keith Richards

James Hand is a new artist who does very traditional country with a bit of contemporary thrown in. Willie Nelson absolutely loves him, and it's from XM's Willie's Place that i know him from. great Steel Guitar and Slide Guitar work.

if it wasn't for using words like "it be damned" and "to hell with the devil" i would have thought James Hand to be an artist from the 50s or 60s. As it is, he's the BEST young Country artist i've heard. and the only country i like is old country.

old Snoop and B.I.G. were both awesome. Tupac (aside frome acouple) and P. Daddy (nothing of his is worth his existance) is worth it. ended with their "we're not hearing the whole story" of their deaths.


in the mean time, Savatage's Jon Olivia (Jon Oliva's Pain, Dr. Butcher, Trans-Siberian Orchestra) is the best songwriter of our time, IMO. i expect less than 1/4 of you to acutally look into that, but there you go.*

What's wrong with modern rock? Don't you think there is something wrong with making blanket judgements instead of each band on an individual basis? Why is it that young people should appreciate classic acts from before their time, but elders cannot appreciate some of today's true talents?

I don't throw out everything recent, but it's just that I'm not familiar with a lot of the newer stuff. For me it's a style thing though. I just like the older styles. Most of the new stuff just doesn't do it for me. Occasionally I will hear something I like, but that's usually the exception.

That's certainly part of it, but with me it's mainly style. Another thing that I don't like about a lot of modern music is the amount of hip hop and rap influence. I can't stand hip hop and it seems that when I'm jumping around on XM I hear a lot of newer pop or rock that has a heavy hip hop influence.

I can see that, as rap lyrics certainly became more prominent in rock. A lot of new stuff is pretty electronic these days too. What about a band like the Foo Fighters?

Never been a fan of the electronic stuff. I heard something from them that didn't sound that bad the other day, but I couldn't tell you names of any songs off my head.

Duffy - "Rockferry"

She's British, so naturally I'll make appropriate comparisons -- part Joss Stone, part Amy Winehouse, part Sneaker Pimps-era Kelli Ali.

Her "hit" that's getting a bit of radio spin is called "Mercy" (which does the same retro-vibe as Winehouse's stuff), which is a good tune. Everything else I've downloaded off the album is pretty damn good too.

Great to hear "Banana Republic" again though.

Some Buzzcocks...but not all....a lot of A Different Kind of tension album is missing.

Like the 2nd version of "Angel Eyes" by Roxy Music....way better than the disco version of Manifesto.

Conor Oberst - s/t
This is very good. It's a lot like I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning, which is Bright Eyes' best album, in my opinion.

The Transplants - Haunted Cities
This CD will ruin any indie and punk cred you may have accrued, but it's, surprisingly, a very good CD.

Girl Talk - Feed the Animals
If you're into sampling, this will blow your mind. It is, by far, the best CD of its kind.

Alkaline Trio - Agony and Irony
I grew out of them a while ago, but I thought I'd give their new CD a shot. As expected, it's more of a mainstream sound than their earlier stuff, but it's good stuff, nonetheless.

Black Kids - Partie Traumatic
This is kind of like The Cure meets MGMNT. It took a while to grow on me, but now that it has, it's possibly stuck in my playlist forever.

The Modern Lovers - s/t
What a classic. I'd say it's one of the best albums of all-time. I'll never get sick of it.

The Verve - Forth
I knew The Verve were talented, but I never thought they were this talented. This CD blows my mind. If you're into catchy pop hooks, this probably isn't something you would appreciate it, but if you're into The Stone Roses, this could be what you've been looking for the past several years.

Ra Ra Riot - The Rhumb Line
This is a very good disc for fans of Vampire Weekend, which is a band I really enjoy.

Sigur Rs - Me su eyrum vi spilum endalaust
This is their best CD in a long time. I started to lose interest in them, but they've won me back and some.

Destroyer - Trouble in Dreams
What can I say? It's another great CD from a great artist. I'd recommend their entire catalogue, but I don't know whom to recommend it to. It's for lo-fi fans but not in a Guided by Voices or Apples in Stereo kind of way.

Beck - Modern Guilt
When Beck said that this CD would sound more like his oldest stuff, I thought, "Yeah, right." We were both right, though. It's way too polished for his Stereopathetic Soulmanure days, but it's certainly reminiscent of Odelay and almost just as good.

Haven't listened to this album yet, but he certainly has a unique sound. Almost a baroque lo-fi, with all those odd orchestral flourishes.


Currently listening to Love As Laughter - Trademark of Quality (far superior to their new album). Saw them last night at Berbati's, about two yards from Isaac Brock.

I've heard everything but And Justice for All. I like the Black album alright, but I really don't care for their early stuff. Hetfield couldn't sing and the lyrics were by and large filled with baseless anger. I'm not really into anger for the sake of itself. I liked Load and ReLoad more than the rest of their stuff because it was different and interesting. They put together some really good music that in many cases spanned multiple musical genres. It's not easy to write a countryish or bluesy song that's heavy, but they managed it. They even used a hurdy gurdy at one point; it worked.

Fair enough.

Hetfield still can't sing...lol. I understand the anger part. The music, though, in their earlier albums is unparalled. You could take out all the singing in Master of Puppets and Justice For All and they'd still be great records. I can't think of another band that I would listen to if they only played music. Metallica, at times, is like a heavy metel orchestra. Truely phenomenal.

I picked up a CD at Shake It Records on Monday after hearing a story about it on NPR Sunday morning as my wife and I were driving our son's stuff up to OSU (he'd gone up the week before for a conference).

They interviewed jazz bassist Charlie Haden and his family about his newest album, Rambling Boy which is bluegrass. Apaparently Haden as a child performed with his family on various Midwestern Hayride type locals radio show. He began on those shows as a two year old yodeling cowboy (and they have a cut of him on this album).

Besides Haden himself on bass, he's joined by his three daughters who perform as The Haden Triplets, his son Josh, his wife and a mix up jazz, rock & country performers. His friend Pat Matheny does a couple of cuts, along with Elvis Costello and Bruce Hornsby with a cut each. From country, Vince Gill, Ricky Skaggs, Roseann Cash and Dan Tyminsky (of O Brother Where Art Thou fame) sing and play. One song is his son-in-law, Jack Black, singing on "Old Joe Clark".

All in all, its a nice little album.

I found this nice review on a blog sight called Something Else!

Matt Duke - "True Ohio Playa"

Matt Duke is a law school graduate from the University of Akron who, while studying for the bar exam, wrote and produced his own rap album. It's either the worst rap album ever, or the funniest rap parody I've ever heard.

Songs include such gems such as these:

"I went to the MAC machine the other day / I looked at the balance, what did it say? / It said: one zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero / zero zero zero zero zero zero zero zero / zero."

"When you go away, it's like the great schism / When you come back, I get priapism"

"1 and 1 don't make two, 1 and 1 make 11, Which is exactly how much and how hard I'm going to love you on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the hardest"

"My #1 skill is having things / My #2 skill is wearing bling (aww yeah, I got some icy bling)"

I knew Rich from a while back. He used to be a youth pastor in Erlanger, KY before he made it in music. He also attended Cincinnati Bible College for a while.

He was a brilliant musician and songwriter, but the quirkiest oddball you would ever meet. He would often come on stage for concerts barefoot and wearing torn jeans. He was the rare person who never got an ego when his music got popular. I think he was somewhat embarrassed by the attention.

It's now been 11 years since he died and I still miss him more than any other person I wasn't related to, but he left a lot of good music behind and a pretty lasting legacy.

I really like Maynard's older stuff. I found the crossover "rock" stuff in the 70's to be so...mutton-chopped.

Man, that cat could play.

He did some recordings in recent years before he died that were kind of a throwback to the older stuff. Some of the 70s stuff wasn't bad, but the older ones were better. I just picked one up recently that was in done in '06, apparently completed just a few weeks before his death, and it's actually pretty good. It features more of the other musicians and not just him, but he could still play even at the end.

Picked up another CD at the library last week which looked interesting, and then I saw Norah Jones was one of the performers. It's a group called The Little Willies and it was just a group of friends who began playing together and ultimately recorded this album in 2006, mostly covers of some country or bluegrass music, but there's some original pieces on it. One is a funny song called "Lou Reed" about Lou Reed cowtipping. Nice little album and many of the cuts you wouldn't know it was Norah Jones.

Redsfan,

I haven't heard more than a couple of tracks off of their second full album. The first single off of their latest is "tough to listen too." It's one of those that repeat the same thing over and over. Which can be a good thing, if that one thing was pleasing to listen to. It's not. However, the second single is much better and akin to their first CD, which is probably my favorite disc of 2007.

I would suggest their first full length, it is very solid tracks 1-9 or so. It falls off after that though. Very innovative band that doesn't sound like much else. Highly reccomend downloading songs "Hospital Beds, Saint John, and Tell Me in the Morning.

7 Mary 3 was solid again last night. They're a fun group to see in concert, plus, they sound better live than they do on their cd's.

Travis Meeks proved to be more of a loose canon than I thought he would be last night. He didn't show. A*****e! I'm still salty about it. Some of the rumors were he OD'd, he's back in rehab, he refused to take the stage for less than a certain amount of money, etc. etc. Either way, I'm upset because Days of the New was the band I was really looking forward to seeing.

To me, this album (among others made in the early to mid fifties) marks a high water mark in American music, a time when most of the great big band players were still in their prime and Bebop was ascending. The melding of the two, the traditions of the big band era combined with these smaller arrangements, infused with the innovations of Charlie Parker, was a golden age of music.


This 1954 studio date by Coleman Hawkins finds the tenor saxophonist in great form, joined by a fine group that includes pianist Billy Taylor, bassist Milt Hinton, drummer Jo Jones, trombonist Eddie Bert, and trumpeter Emmett Berry. Hawkins' boppish take on "Cheek to Cheek" moves at a fast clip, though he never exhausts himself of ideas. The full sextet is heard on a portion of the session, including a lush but brisk take of "Lullaby of Birdland," a snappy run through "Get Happy," and the old swinger "Blue Lou." There are many strong solos by the supporting cast, but it's difficult to eclipse the sound of Hawkins' tenor when he is in top form as on this CD. Although it is hard for many collectors to afford picking up every single recommended release by Coleman Hawkins, this one should be grabbed quickly, as Prevue's life as a reissue label ended rather prematurely.
