i have a new sound system now. my previous speakers were treble shit. so it sounds good.:)

i'm wondering how his next album will sound like. do you think he's gonna pull another 180? maybe another Yeezus except with more soul and jazz elements and preferably better, deeper lyrics.. though knowing it's Kanye i'll love it regardless.

For some reason "Jenny" really fucked me up emotionally earlier, like existentially. It turns out I still have deep rooted feelings for a woman I loved years ago, and I hadn't fully realized this until quite recently, meanwhile there is nothing to do about it then trip out on the mystery of the heart and its capacity to feel beyond logic, reason, or indeed the passing of time.

good. Not as immediate as the first album. A lot of slower stuff. But more experimental. Feels like a slow burner. Check it out.

East of the River Jordan is one of the most superb records ever.. Folks will never fully appreciate just how much Studio One roots reggae influenced world music..

.. My favorite Röyksopp album by far. Underrated as hell.

Also this is one of the best albums of the year and I've been playing the shit out of it:

Actually.. Maybe you can help me answer a question that's been dogging me for a while now. I read the following story about them not long ago, and it sounds like it's a bit of bullshit, but I am not familiar enough with the band to know, having only started listening after Birdland:


The Pink Noise became one of the best bands in the world in a single night last spring. After a week of practice in Detroit the members drove down to their debut in New York City, Gotham city, the big she-bang, only to walk onstage to instruments they couldnt play and songs they couldnt remember. After antagonizing the crowd for five minutes or so, the purposefully bad set was abruptly ended by a 300-pound bouncer, who proceeded to toss them out of the door. Nobody, including the label-heads in New York who beg to release The Pink Noises music, has heard from them since. Luckily the Alpha record was finished before this fiasco. It is the work of sinister pop scientists running on all cylinders, cramming multiple organs into a single cadaver only to reveal a skeleton for each song. Mixing influences from across the pond (theyd fit in with late-70s Manchester) and across the continent (Northern Cali pioneers such as Chrome and Minimal Man come to mind) with a primitive aura rarely adopted to this style, Alpha gets high scores in every category, its urgency and immediacy unparalleled in the land of limp keyboard amateurs."

This has got to be some bullshit, right? I don't know.

Really fucking good band, though.

I've been really enjoying the triple threat of Live recordings that have been released this year. Definitely a fan.

Genteel Death 06.19.2014 10:21 AM

What do the the Pixies sound like? They're one of those bands I don't think I've ever heard.

Man I really just wanted to know what was up with that "review" of Alpha.
What happened to your personal life that makes coming on here and just being a prick something that you even have time for?!

The Soup Nazi 06.19.2014 08:49 PM

Since some of you are talking about ordering stuff, I thought I'd go just slightly off-topic and mention the goodies I've pre-ordered. Some of these records are already out, actually, but I did order 'em in advance, you follow.


St. Vincent - Prince Johnny 12"


St. Vincent - Digital Witness DARKSIDE Remix 12"


Jeff Tweedy - Diamond Light 10"


Anna Calvi - Strange Weather covers EP


The Soup Nazi 06.19.2014 08:51 PM


Spoon - They Want My Soul insane bundle

The Soup Nazi 06.19.2014 09:44 PM

Sharon Van Etten - Are We There bonkers bundle

Part of me really wants to like St. Vincent, but every damned time I give them a sincere go I just realize...

Just "her", actually; Annie Clark is St. Vincent, although she records and (mostly) performs with other musicians. Usually I despise when a single person adopts a band name, but Annie is my girlfriend.

SuchFriendsAreDangerous 06.20.2014 04:55 PM

While I understand that it is her vision, the does indeed invite a variety of musicians into it and therefore St. Vincent can be loosely defined as a band, one which I've always wanted to give my support to and yet sonically could just never get into it..

I feel the exact same way about Sleigh Bells...

chocolate_ladyland 06.21.2014 03:26 PM


Also this but I couldn't find a good quality image...

For the shit Hecker gets for his stuff being unlistenable, I really liked both of them.

You probably should have kept it like that.

EVOLghost 06.24.2014 11:02 AM

Yeah....I probably should have. The only song I really enjoyed was 'In like the rose'

everything else sounds incredibly dated.

don't know how this passed me by but it's incredible. steven warwick, richard youngs and luke fowler making tinny, warped club music that has been left to soak in bleach for centuries.

Trilogy by Emerson Lake and Palmer

What an atrocious piece of shit. Keith Emerson's solos on this album are just the epitome of bad taste

Down the Road by Stephen Stills/Manassas

I have an uncle who regularly gives me old records that he either is done with, never liked, or knows I would like better... I'm not sure which category this one fell into, but... meh?

More ocassionaly engaging but mostly just 'there' pseudo-rock from Stephen Stills *yawn*
