What I like about R.E.M. is I get sick of them and sell all their CDs, then a year or so later I can buy them all again for fifty cents each at the discount bin or library sale.


Hah. Yes. Monster is, I think, officially the most commonly found bargain bin/resale CD. Saw something about this a few years back.

I just keep my copy. Thurston on guitar? “Tongue?” “Let Me In?” “Strange Currencies?” Some great shit on that shit.

Fables was the last really good one if you ask me. Life's Rich pageant has a couple of tracks that I like but I think it's a Nostalgia talking.

I loved GREEN, but that's because it's the first album I heard and that tour was the one and only time I saw them live. Everything before that is cool, everything after that I don't like so much. Even Out Of Time, though I loved it back then. Probably heard it too many times and overkilled it. Monster might indeed be the odd on out, I think I also like that one, but it's a long time since I heard it.




as for today:
today is the day that I will only listen to Philippe Katerine. Because the sun is shining and I need some happy music. The guy is a genius in my eyes and ears, sort of like the Serge Gainsbourg of today.



Example one:
LA REVE, of which the lyrics are:


Quote:

C’est a...
C’est affreux...
C’est affreux j’ai...
C’est affreux j’ai rê...
C’est affreux j’ai rêvé...
C’est affreux j’ai rêvé que...
C’est affreux j’ai rêvé que je...
C’est affreux j’ai rêvé que je su...
C’est affreux j’ai rêvé que je suçais...
C’est affreux j’ai rêvé que je suçais Jo...
C’est affreux j’ai rêvé que je suçais Johnny !
C’est affreux j’ai rêvé que je suçais Johnny !

I clicked the link you posted but it goes nowhere. Looking on bandcamp now, but so far I’ve only been able to hear one track — the Bad Moon Rising-reminiscent “You Don’t Need,” which is fucking glorious.

Yes but I don’t necessarily always type it correctly on my phone.

You’re just gonna have to take my word for it that I knew the name of this classic album I and everyone here has owned for 25+ years. Or not. Dun’care

RP Boo - “I’ll Tell You What!”

 


Another great RP Boo album, less abrasive than “Finger, Bank Pads & Shoe Prints,” but still pretty wild.

Music For The People
By Marky Mark And The Funky Bunch

Really not that bad. Not a classic--his flow is pretty one-dimensional and uninventive--but not a total joke either. Probably won't listen to it very much in the future tho.

Listen, TINY, you don't gotta fly off the handle, a'ight? True story: remember in The Dark Knight, the big prisoner in the ferry who asks the warden to give him the detonator to blow up the other ferry...

You don't want to die, but you don't know how to take a life. Give it to me; these men would kill you, and take it anyway. Give it to me. You can tell 'em I took it by force. Give it to me, and I'll do what you shoulda did ten minutes ago.

...only to throw the detonator out the window? Well, that actor's "official nickname" is... TINY!

I know it's popular to hate on this band, but they really aren't that good. It is certainly not metal. Or at the very least it's metal for people who hate metal. I'm going to see them in a couple of weeks anyway, but it's mostly because drab majesty and uniform are opening. I'll stick around and give them a chance to change my mind, but I have not been impressed with anything I've heard from them at all. Things can change in the live setting though. We'll see!

Yeah you can’t listen to Deafheaven and expect true metal. I mean, they are Metal, but yes... they’re metal for people who don’t really fucking like metal, because so much metal fucking eats shit.

No, for this band you need to put on your Cotceau Twins/MBV/Slowdive hat.

I think the actual equation for their music is [(Sunny Day Real Estate x My Bloody Valentine)/Wolves in the Throne Room]^Queen = Deafheaven

Anyway... “real” metal or not, Deafheaven and The Body have made me listen to metal again over the past few years. Sunbather was so goddamn good, and posed off so many homophobic bitchass metal heads it was glorious and hilarious. This new one has more riffage, less abrasion, but I like it.

But no, High on Fire they are not.

Savage Clone 07.14.2018 08:04 PM

The Body are good. I've seen them a few times and I even got to open for them once. I still think it's challenging even for a fan to tell one song from another with them, but they are good.
My favorite "shoegaze with teeth" band of the moment is probably Nothing. And they were quite good live as well.

And sure there's a lot of bad metal but the ratio of bad to good is pretty abysmal in every genre of music.

Tryptikon, Obsequiae,Yob and Panopticon are just a few groups who I feel are pushing metal forward in very smart and interesting ways. In a lot of ways metal has the most fertile ground for interesting music at present. It's just that when it's bad it's really bad. Which is also the case for most kinds of music I love.

No, I agree. And I really loved Nothing’s first album. Like, a lot. Think it landed in my arbitrary and ever-shifting-in-number year end list for 2014. Lost track of them after that, but yeah.

Deafheaven, The Body (that album with Haxen Cloak was *kisses fingers*) and Nothing... and Panopticon, yep. Not sure I know the others, but I have never been a big metal guy ever, and haven’t been a frequent listener of true metal (not counting metal-adjacent bands like Sleep) in ages, so I probably have some catching up to do.

Deafheaven just grips me in a way similar to early WITTT, back when they were exciting and new, only with all this sugary goodness on top. Mmmm.

_tunic_ 07.15.2018 02:22 AM

oh my that was weird. I listened to one Deafheaven song (Canary Yellow). First minute or so it sounds like a Cure/Mogwai morph, then suddenly becomes stupid screamo bullshit. So no no no no abort abort abort



Listening to the new YOB now, I dislike metal screamo vocals in general but with Yob I can still handle it. And those guitars wow those guitars wow wow
Good morning sunday metal bliss

It’s not screams vocals... really. It’s incomprehnsible, fairly traditional black metal screaming. Did you not listen to WITTT either? Because... prettt similar, vocally.

Severian 07.15.2018 11:39 AM

Bitch I told you to put on your Cocteau Twins hat!

Anyway, this new album is theiir tamest. If you haven’t heard Sunbather and New Bermuda, please give them a solid chance before making your final decision.
