"Time" is really over the top... and really good as well - two things that seldom go together. No small feat. :cool:

About that crazy piano: Mike Garson came back with a vengeance on Outside's "A Small Plot Of Land", but impressive as his playing is on that track I've never been a fan of that album or Earthling. I think I prefer Black Tie White Noise when it comes to '90s David... Garson is there too, actually. :)

Somewhat uneven, yeah. But the ones that are awesome are absolute bangers. Hits the sweet spot between Siouxsie-esque gloom and that upbeat Post-Punk/Funk-fusion ŗ la Talking Heads. I'm a sucker for that. :D

bush tetras i think had connections to the ny no wave scene and maybe im misremembering but too many creeps might have been one of the songs in the mixtapes that used to appear in this website during the chris habib days. mixtape or... the one where they introduced old songs, oh what was it called. i remember kim picked a stevie wonder track... maybe it was the same... podcast or what would you call that.

anyway, i love the bass on too many creeps.

Mick's third volume of Gainsbourg covers. One of them sounds like Rammstein :eek:

Mick Harvey - The Journey

This soundtrack EP is on his bandcamp page, but it will be released on album in april with another soundtrack.
It's beautiful compositions of strings and piano and makes me wonder how the Bad Seeds would sound like if he was still in it...

Working on a theme this Sunday morning...

 


 

Besides the names on the cover the latter also features: "Her dead twin", "A drunk cowboy junkie", "Anonymous", "Scatman Cramden", "Howie Dewitt", "Dick Strum", "Ralf Bellow", "Spencer Turk", and "Frank Leer". What a joyous bunch of lads that must have been :p

_tunic_ 01.26.2020 05:55 AM

 

Its like a Portuguese/Iranian mix of Jeff Buckley and Sixteen Horsepower

Weird as shit. Some sites give this album rave reviews, bit it's got no story, and too much freaky sounds for me.

In other related news, I bought a 40th anniversary deluxe version of Melody Nelson which contains a bonus disc with unreleased sessions. :)

_tunic_ 01.26.2020 04:08 PM

 

Recorded prior to Melody Nelson, quite similar luscious instrumentation

 

Two options: stare at the sleeve for hours or listen to the music and hear how Miss Birkin pronounces orrangkettang :p

 

There's a couple of misses here but just ignore and enjoy the other tracks and wonder how a man with a cabbage head looks like

Going through their discography again before the (bound to be shite) new one comes out. Since this is the only one anyone here's likely to care about, I'll just say a few words: this is a good fuckin' record. Hook filled, more musically diverse than it needed to be, surprisingly well-oiled rhythm section. Basically Dookie, but more lo-fi and you can't call them sell outs for it.

(On a personal note, the guy who admins the fan Reddit and Discord server interviewed Chris Appelgren, the guy who drew the cover. He claimed it was 'unfinished', so a couple of people from the Discord - my friends - made their own attempts at it.)
