^I love I want some by make up. Great album.

Right now I'm listening to Keijo & the free players - after at once. I googled for Keijo Virtanen, who is behind Keijo, and found out, that the rector of the university in Turku, Finland, has the same name. How interesting!

Make Up are awesome. did you chaps pick up Untouchable Sound, the recently released "lost" Make-Up LP? it's proper tasty. think i'll throw it on next...

currently listening to Loam by Mouthus which I have decided is my favourite record of theirs.

I'm scanning the shortwave.

Further to that, I've settled on some kind of middle-eastern folk music. Nice percussion and a wailing lady.

I like Avatar but its much more clean than previous albums as you've probably heard. A friend of mine doesn't like it very much as it reminds him of his long haired, open shirt wearing uncle. Its psychedelic still but it's like they wanted to show off their songwriting ability or something. I'm glad I bought it.

Yeah, on Avatar they ditched the vocal echo-freakout thing.

In my opinion, it is a step down for them. They were on top of the world with those first 3 LPs and it is pretty fucking hard to beat a record as good as Field Recordings From The Sun.

Still, give it a chance. It is a much cleaner version of Blue Cathedral, without all the organs and strings and shit. Shoulda-been classic rock anthems.

i thought of it more like a transition record, like if for their next record they can combine the songwriting skills they developed for avatar (which i think are undeniable) with their more out-there sound of past recordings, they can really take them to the next level.

TheDom 10.04.2006 09:11 PM

Good point. It proves that COF aren't going to keep doing the same thing over and over again, which is pretty refreshing.

to keep on the topic of the thread I'm listenin to motherfuckin' Polvo - Today's Active Lifestyles

too fucking good.

I'm listening to nothing at this very moment, aside from the speaker statik.
