I just heard Passanger - "scare away the dark" for the first time the other day. Now I am hoping everything else isn't bad.
Other than that my Shuffle has the official Springsteen download recording of the Brisbane show on it and getting heavy play. Here is a video compilation from the show using the audio.
posted before, but I find it that damn good. this is so often what my brain sounds like if you loop it over 5 or 6 intervals at random points.
The new Ryan Adams album- oh my freaking God, wowee wow wow wow.
You MUST hear it- fantastic.
Parkay Quarts - Content Nausea; It's Parquet Courts with a new rhythm section (original bass player and drummer are taking care of a baby and attending school), sounds like a looser version of primary lineup.
The Wytches - Anabel Dream Reader; contemporary grunge from Brighton, England.
Just downloaded, and excited to listen to, Hookworms' "The Hum."
Just going to throw this out there, though I don't know that it's of any value, but maybe there are some Pavement fans out there that want to discuss nonsense with me.
Malkmus is obviously pretty good with wordplay, and especially so on the album "Brighten the Corners." It probably took me 100 listens before I heard a really clever turn of phrase on "Starlings of the Slipstream." Before they enter the second chorus (where in other parts of the song he sings "starlings of the slipstream"), Malkmus says he installed a spycam in a sorority. The following chorus repeats "darlings on the split screen, darlings on the split screen." While undoubtedly a bit creepy, the switch makes me smile each and every time I hear it.
Again, it's silly, but the little things are why I like Pavement ohsomuch. And for my money "Brighten the Corners" is probably their best album.
This has become my most-listened-to track of the year:
For the Game of Thrones fans out there.
Currently on foobar.
That Parkay Quarts album is really good. Based on one album, I prefer the new lineup.
