I think NFR is a fucking masterpiece!! The stretch of songs from California to Happiness Is A Butterfly is truly astounding. If she can keep up this kind of work on the new album I will be beside myself.

(Yes, I know. I'm the only one here who loves Gizz. And Taylor Swift (2020 anyway). And Billie Eilish. Etc Etc. The previous Gizz (KG) was a grower for me. I love it now!)

You're concerned? I'M CONCERNED. It's a Sonic Youth board and nobody seems to give a flying fuck that one of the two last surviving New York Dolls has left us, and instead there's all this talk about Taylor Swift and Lana del Rey and Charli XCX and all that BULLCRAP. Not to mention there should be a 10-page thread about why it is impossible to choose just one Wussy album because they're all extraordinary and they're the best band in the fucking world.

^ It's remarkable that while several of your posts are rather thoughtful and eloquent, when it comes to me you knee-jerkishly revert to a garden-variety high school troll. I've followed more artists from their very beginnings than your shitty anime radar will ever give you the chance to.

You're a grown man yelling at a teenager on the Internet because she doesn't really care about your musical opinions.

Well, if you didn't really care you wouldn't have posted anything, but nevermind, guilty as charged: it's a lose-lose for me because I'm supposed to be the adult in the room, so even if I have a point and you're being a brat, it's like, "Hey, dude, come on, she's supposed to be a fucking brat". Kind of a copout from someone who has proven she can grasp complexity, but still, my bad.

I listened to that Chemtrails song and heard less than nothing there, Soup I feel you don't worry

!@#$%! 01.19.2021 12:32 PM

i wasn't before, but im curious about this shit now.

thanks for the heads up

--

eta: still nope on chemtrails ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

same little melody repeated ad infinitum and not in a philip glass kind of way

--

and still nope on lana del rey. maybe she's got clever lyrics or something but for me it's just boring music.

wasn't she the one who ruined sleater-kinney anyway? or am i confusing her with someone else?

otoh i still got a few billie eilish tracks on rotation since this broken record was last played here :D

You're thinking of St. Vincent, a brilliant musician who didn't "ruin" Sleater-Kinney, but... contributed to a not altogether satisfying change. How's that for diplomatic. ;)

For two decades, MONO have defined and refined a kind of orchestral rock that is as emotional as it is experimental. Their 10 studio albums over those 20 years have established MONO as what Pitchfork described as “one of the most distinctive bands of the 21st Century.” Meanwhile, their live concerts are typically more subdued in instrumentation – and more supercharged in volume and voltage. Rarely is there the opportunity to combine those two experiences. In their 20-year history as a band, MONO have presented no more than a half-dozen live concerts featuring the support of an orchestra. Such events are not only unusual – they are also unforgettable.



Beyond the Past • Live in London with the Platinum Anniversary Orchestra documents MONO’s extraordinary performance from the Beyond the Past event that celebrated the band’s 20th anniversary, which took place at the historic Barbican Centre in London, England on December 14, 2019. For that once-in-a-lifetime event, MONO selected a memorable lineup of old and new friends, including fellow Japanese underground icons, Boris and Envy, as well as French post-metal legends, Alcest, and UK collaborators A.A. Williams and Jo Quail. The event culminated with MONO performing with The Platinum Anniversary Orchestra, featuring National Youth String Orchestra to a rapt, sold-out audience of 2,000.


Playing through a two-hour set that touches on the band’s entire history, the sheer euphoria and dynamic resonance that engulfed the massive crowd was captured in brilliant detail by MONO’s live sound engineer, Matt Cook. Meticulously mastered by Bob Weston and presented here in its entire two-hour glory, Beyond the Past is one of the most essential MONO recordings. Packaged in a triple gatefold with accompanying 40-page photo book, this is the rare document of an event that is an event in and of itself.
