You know what he meant.
Also, what did Em have out in '95? That's pre-Invincible.

Either way, I just see a couple white dudes with bleached hair.

You definitely should. I guess I don't know enough about your taste in rock-type-stuff to say if I think you'll like it or not, but honestly, based on my own taste, I would never guess that I'd enjoy it so much.

I read about Will Toledo and CSR before Teens of Style came out, and got the impression it would be some really silly, late model Weezer, power pop bullshit. Everything about it, including that terrible "band" name, made me think it was just too young for me.

I think it was on a Sonic Youth-based Apple Music station that I first heard the album. It really *is* kind of silly, power poppy shit, but it's expertly crafted and had a ton of personality... more than you'd think would be possible for anyone trying the whole subdued, ironic tension thing in 2016. I'm not about to claim it's genius, but it's effective. His riffs and the way he uses his voice make the music work, and his willingness to write 8 minute songs gives him a lot more wiggle room than the Strokes ever had. He touches on everything from Sebadoh to Fugazi to fucking Fleeywood Mac, and it's hard to say what his biggest inspiration is. But every time I put either of the LPs on, I am very glad I did.

Ian Willaim Craig - Centres

 


This is fucking great. I'd recommend it. It seems to fall under the "electronic" heading according to most sites, but you needn't be a fan of electronic or techno to dig this.

No fucking Beatles albums on youtube? Some individual songs, but I can't play an album start to finish.

Wait. Can't find "Strawberry Fields." WTF?

Funny thing is, there are cover versions of entire albums and a lot of listeners can't seem to tell. Here's HELP! for example. All the albums seem to have been covered similarly.

Weird, no?

no! it's the beatles album dude. it's just been fucktard manipulated in the first degree. I know cuz I've heard Help a buzillion freaking fucking times. I know every nook and cranny.

funny enough they did do the kinda stuff your talking about in the 60's with bands like the Beach Boys. getting another fake hack band to play the hits. I learned this from Mark Prindle.

evollove 09.22.2016 05:46 PM

On closer listen, it's a hodge podge of stuff, to avoid copyright infringement, I guess.

There ARE covers in there; the title track is obviously someone else. Some are weird versions culled from Rockband somehow. And some, like Yesterday, are the real thing fucktard manipulated in the first degree.

ALL the Beatles albums have received this treatment, yet the real things are nowhere to be found. Weird, I insist.
