Might as well start a new thread --

O.A.R's new album "King" is out. After their last album (the very uneven "All Sides") left me feeling very indifferent, I have to say this is much more like it.

Solid disc. I need to listen more over the weekend.

‪M83 - Midnight City‬‏ - YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydeQ5BjXvjQ)

An epic synthpop, disco-inflected banger for the ages. The M83 double LP at the end of the year is by far my most anticipated album coming up.

Love the sax climax. :cool:

Local Cincinnati boys Foxy Shazam. Their cover of Nirvana's "Drain You" from the SPIN-produced tribute album Newermind is absolutely amazing.

Anyone like Crowded House/Split Enz? Neil Finn is one the best songwriters of this generation IMO.

I lived in Sydney in 81-82, and the first real Australian song I heard on the radio was Split Enz 'One Step Ahead'. My immediate thought was, 'man, they've got something special going on here.'

I never really understood why Split Enz didn't catch on in the US. Neil and Tim said in an interview while I was over there that everyone they met in the states told them how much they loved them, then when they looked at record sales, they figured that the Enz must be the biggest victim of illegal recording in the history of the industry!

I was happy when Crowded House took off, even if they're popularity wasn't sustainable. At least after that I didn't get weird looks when I talked about them.

fwiw, my favorite Split Enz song was Tim Finn's 'Dirty Creature'. As someone who has fought depression all my life, I thought he caught the cycle of darkness beautifully.

another side note--that song was released while I was in Sydney, but the video shows edited out Tim's decapitation, which seems silly when you go back and watch the video now.

I'm usually completely bored by Snow Patrol, but I really like their new one, "Called Out in the Dark". The open sounds like something immediately familiar, and the chorus has a kind of jarring Moody Blues/ELO feel to it.

Interesting. Saw him at WaldenBooks back in the day at Charleston Town Center, reading a magazine article about himself. He was wearing a hand-painted jacket with his name on it, and making no effort to disguise who he was, but no one bothered him.


I've been pretty disappointed in this year's music with a few exceptions (Decemberists, Head & Heart, Civil Wars, Noah and the Whale) but some stuff I'm hearing now has me hopeful things are picking up. I like the new Ryan Adams song better than anything I've heard from him in years, and I'm also looking forward to the new Wilco release, and the songs I've heard from NeedtoBreathe sound interesting. The New Chili Peppers sounds good too, but that almost seems to be in the 'it is what it is' category.

Interesting. I've heard it called boring, but that was by a Son Volt partisan, so who knows?

Then again, I liked the last album, even if there wasn't a real flow to it. If I were a Red, I would want Bull Black Nova to be my at bat music. The nerve-racking keyboard part, specifically.

With exception of first 6 songs on first album Son Volt is pretty much painfully boring IMO and Jay Farrar solo live might be one of the most dour and uninspiring performers I'm ever seen.

While i'll agree about son volt :thumbup:Id say wilco has been getting a pass for awhile. For all the accolades that Yankee Hotel Foxtrot gets/got i fail to get it to this day ? Forget about Summerteeth and A Ghost is born talk about painfully boring granted i havent heard the last 2 wilco releases and sky blue sky had some real good moments. I got to say tweedy for the most part lost me after Being There.Probably because i leaned more toward the alt country sounds of A.M. as opposed to the more experimentel stuff like AGIB & YHF.

This is another good example of 2 talented song writers butting heads and letting there egos get the best of them .

I couldn't stand Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. I had only recently started getting into Wilco's music but that was one of the few albums I've ever listened to that actually made me angry. Just not my cup of tea, I guess. I've liked some of Wilco's stuff since then though.

Anyway, I'm listening to the new EP from the New Shouts and I cannot get enough. True, true pop with just enough Motown. It's derivative, but so full of joy that I don't really care. Great stuff. You can buy the EP here:

I don't know how you want to describe it, but to me it takes all of the best aspects of Brothers and packs them into 11 fast-paced songs (I felt Brothers suffered from a bloated amount of tracks)...

Couple of new downloads off of Itunes:
The Horrible Crows 'Elsie' - Was looking around to see when The Gaslight Anthem is due out for a new album. Saw their front man had a new album out and checked it out. It is much darker than Gaslight but Brian Fallon has a fantastic voice.

Amos Lee 'Mission Bell' - Really like his voice. It is a little dark as well, definitely not a roll your windows down and drive type of album. But good music none the less.

Crazy Heart Soundtrack - Good combination of country voices in this album.

Zac Brown Band - For my money probably the best two country albums I have listened to in a long time.

Jason Aldean - A quality country album, if you like that.

Which is a bit ironic, given that Windows Are Rolled Down....(a strangely dark song itself).

I've been an Amos Lee fan for years, and some of the stuff on this album really gets me. Music for someone who is getting older and starting to feel the impact of what's gone before.

Yea Windows Are Rolled Down is a great song. I just started to listen to him and I do find some irony in it. I often don't feel the impact of songs but I can see what you are saying. I do find it ironic when I begin to sing the lyrics and find myself saying "did he really sing that?"

I also like how they sound like The White Stripes a bit, especially in the 4th track, Little Black Submarines. I can't wait to see them live again someday.

The new Girls album is quite satisfying.

As to this Wilco discussion....no doubt YHF is a 10/10...and I actually LOVED Wilco - The Album, A Ghost is Born, Sky Blue Sky, etc - suffice it to say I am a huge Wilco guy. But I was wholly disappointed in The Whole Love. I just didn't get it. A couple of tracks tickled my fancy but as a whole, I didn't love it. Wow, that was corny.

I agree Jay Farrar is underwhelming live but, for my money, Uncle Tupelo is one of the best, most important bands in the last 20 years...at least for those of us who enjoy alt-country/indie rock.

Big fan. I wish the film would be a career retrospective for the band (i.e. - James Murphy), rather than the build up to the last shows at MSG.

Aside, they put on the best festival performance I've ever witnessed at Pitchfork '10. The entire field was bonkers, never seen so much energy in a festival crowd.

Small world.... when I was in Athens this past weekend, the kids played Craig Finn on the stereo (or whatever they call it nowadays) and thought he was Randy Newman and said "you guys listen to Randy Newman?". I was soon set straight.

Earlier this week, I found this one the net.

Hopefully he's back to his old, arrogant self.

I'm warming back up to them. I actually don't like that era very much with a few exceptions, but Nirvana's stuff has me coming around a bit.

That period is so dark, it makes me long for the days of Poison.

I think that's why a lot of people like those days. It is totally different from the hair bands and it's something rock and roll needed at the time. I'm 29 and I grew up in the era where this music became popular so I have an affinity for grunge.

My tastes run all over the place. It's probably easier for me to say what I don't like than what I do, which is basically metal and hip hop. I can listen to just about anything else. I go through different phases that last a week or two where I'll listen to one style for a while. A couple weeks ago it was Irish music, last week classical, this week it's female singers. I've been listening to Adele and Alison Krauss today. Who knows what I'll be in the mood for tomorrow.

I hate to reduce her to just to the category of "girl musician" with this comparison, but I think it's one worth making... She's got enough talent I think to be one of the best of them in the last 20 years. Right up there with a Bjork or PJ Harvey.

Yeah, the little Kurt Vile I'd heard prior to Bonnaroo was pretty strummy. That wasn't the case last weekend. Him and his Violators rocked pretty hard.

Silver Jews.

I had tried getting into them in the past (huge Pavement fan), but never could really figure it out. Then, snap, two weeks ago it hit me. Now I can't listen to anything but American Water and Starlite Walker.

I've never enjoyed a lyricist more than David Berman. Just about every song, save the obvious Malkmus songs, have a really poignant line or two that really resonate for me. So much so, that I'm considering what I once thought unthinkable, picking up Berman's turn of the millennium book of poetry (I swore off poetry after undergrad).

I mentioned this under the movie thread, but watching the movie was precipitated by picking up this CD.

Last weekend I picked up a CD from the library titled "Standing in the Shadows of Motown" which turned out to be the soundtrack of a documentary by the same name. It's about the Motown house band, The Funk Brothers. The album features some songs recorded at the famed Studio A at Motown as well as others recorded live in Detroit.

The band is accompanied by various current artists doing the classic Motown hits (from "Hitsville USA"!) Again, as I said over there, I knew of some of the performers; Joan Osborne, Bootsy Collins, Ben Harper and Chaka Kahn. A couple of others I didn't know, but who were good, were Meshell Ndegeocello and Montell Jordon (who sang with Kahn on "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." All in all, the album was a treat.

I am impressed with it. I have listened to it a couple times through and think its up to their standards.

Zac Brown Band - Uncaged Was a little disappointed at first but have come around. Not as good as their earlier two albums but one of the better country ones.

I like them, Westfall is a crazy story but a good song. A girl I used to date turned me onto them.

As for the thread, today I've been listening to old school Faithless because it never seems to get old to me. And I guess watching Danny Boyle's opening ceremony can put you in that kinda mood.

Matthew E. White - Big Inner. Great album. It's got this big haunting southern vibe to it. Definitely a kinda throwback album.

He's also got his own studio, Spacebomb, with a full house band, including a rhythm section, horns, backup vocals, ect. that's worked with Bon Iver (pretty sure you can hear Justin Vernon's vocals on Big Inner), Sharon Van Etten, and Megafaun, among others.

After going away from Rhapsody for a little bit, I re-subscribed today. I lost my main playlist somehow, so I've been building a new one, including a lot of "Of Monster and Men" "Muse" "Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros" "Killers" "Avett Brothers" and the like. One thing that's a little different than what I've been doing lately is that I added a number of Sinatra songs (mostly from the Capital years with Nelson Riddle). I get into a Sinatra kick every few years, but usually don't stay in it for very long because his songs tend to work their way into my subconscious in weird ways and trigger some uncomfortable memories I can't quite pull up. Probably it's just that the songs connect with my very young years in the early sixties.

btw, you have no idea how hard I worked to keep from filling the previous paragraph with Sinatra titles (You Make Me Feel so Young, I've Got You Under my Skin, etc.)

Animal Collective has a new album out. These guys are raved about by all the music critics and fans but I just can't get them. I don't need a great melody and hook to enjoy music...as bland as it may sound I love Pink Floyd and enjoy Radiohead's "odder" songs. But as much as I try to listen and "get" AC, I can't. It sounds muddled to me...though I really enjoy "Some Girls".

If it is just music that is great to get high to, I can totally get that...so tell me if that is the case. No offense intended by that.

Any fans on here that care to add anything? Help me at least understand the love these guys get. (Without making me feel lame :D)

For me, Animal Collective is a pretty good band, but they're overrated by a lot of people and publications. All their albums range from 'good' to 'very good', but they haven't released a great record. I think their hype mainly comes from their unique-yet-attainable sound. They're certainly not bad--far from it--but aside from their sound, they're not all that special either.

I think their appeal is that they brought a noisy electronic sound to the popular indie crowd. You can see where there musical interests lie in who they affiliate themselves with, namely abrasive noise bands like Black Dice. It helped that they started strange and discordant and grew progressively more palatable, allowing the hype to build. Haven't listened to Centipede Hrz yet, but for my money Strawberry Jam and Feels are their best albums.

Ha, what do you know? A post on Redszone that relates to my user name!

I personally love Animal Collective because from album to album their sound morphs greatly while still retaining their core "trademark" sound. Throughout their discography they've released such unique and diverse records incorporating numerous genres.

They are definitely a band that will always have people on both ends of the love/hate spectrum. If I could sum up why I enjoy their music so much, it has to be the brilliant balance of uglieness and beauty.

I enjoy putting the song Alvin Row on at bars just to see the reaction...

I'm a big Bob Mould fan, but honestly, his new album doesn't do a whole lot for me. There are a few great cuts on there though. Lately, I'm listening to the newest albums from these artists:
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
The Avett Brothers
Bob Dylan
Swans
The xx

I'm going to pick up Cat Power's new album this week, too. I was really disappointed by The Raveonettes' last album, so I'm probably going to give it a listen before I consider buying it. Has anyone here heard it yet? If so, what did you think?

Nah, due to the fact that I do not play six instruments and, apparently new to music and life, I'm unqualified to speak about music.

All kidding aside, all that matters is if one enjoys what he/she is listening to. Lots of good under-the-radar material throughout this thread.

I couldn't stand Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. I had only recently started getting into Wilco's music but that was one of the few albums I've ever listened to that actually made me angry. Just not my cup of tea, I guess. I've liked some of Wilco's stuff since then though.

I felt the need to right a terrible wrong here. I just recently re-listened to Wilco's YHF album (3 or 4 times!) and all I can say is, I'm not sure what I was thinking. I think maybe the feedback/reverb stuff at the end of a couple of the songs turned me off back then. Or maybe I was just in a bad mood. Or who knows what? But it's always great fun to revisit music that you thought you knew and hear it in a whole different way.

To sum up, my opinion on Yankee Hotel Foxtrot has done a 180; the album is great.
