I actually mean driving around the town I went to college in thinking about a girl who was way too cool for me, looking for girls who were slightly less cool, yes.

No, I really just mean literally driving around in the summer time. From class to basement where my band practiced, out for beer and other things. Yes there was usually a girl on my mind, but I didn’t mean “cruising.”

Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

I've never gotten sick of this one in all the years since its release.

Spiritualized - ďAnd Nothing HurtĒ

Finding it hard to stay focused this time around. Used to treasure every Spiritualized album, await it with baited breath and play it to death .... but I dunno. Itís good, but Iím not blown away or anything.

Haven't heard a single note yet, and won't until I receive my copy. :) But the reports I've read about Mr. Spaceman using bits of recorded classical music... I kinda dig it ó sounds positively Basinskiesque!

Yeah, itís good. Very good. But I think Iím kinda over the Lips/Spiritualized/Low era when every new release was the highlight of my year. Thereís just so much out there that I wasnít listening to when I was 16. But itís early days.

I ordered the pretty deluxe edition LP. But Iím not gonna wait on that shit.

Lately it's been My Morning Jacket's "Z" a ton.



Lay Low is such an awesome song.

Yeah, that is a really solid album.
Do you think MMJ ever came close to hitting that mark again? Personally I think it was their peak as a band. Circuital and Evil Urges didn’t leave lasting impressions on me, and I never properly listened to The Waterfall.

The Okonokos live album is probably the closest they’ve come to repeating Z’s success, but that doesn’t really count.

It Still Moves is good too.

Honestly I kinda forgot about MMJ for a while. I did listen to Circuital though and I thought it sounded pretty dang good.

I forgot about them too. But back in Ď05-Ď06 it felt like they were poised to either become the next Wilco or the next Flaming Lips (they couldnít seem to quote choose; little bit alt. country jangle and krautrock thump, little bit psychedelic freakout), but then they seemed to fade from view a bit.

Canít be blamed for forgetting about them.

Iíve even forgotten about Spoon a little at this point, and theyíre a much more consistent band. But Jesus, Spoon was primed to inherit form Wilco as well, but after 2010, they never really had another album that splashed with more than critics.

Sad whatís happened to indie rock in the Ď10s.

Ain't that the truth. I feel like so much of pop culture and music is so recycled nowadays. There's no originality left, or it's completely undervalued.



But yeah there was a time when I too thought MMJ were going to keep making records like Z, and then they kinda faded out of my consciousness.


Still, great record that.

Definitely a great record.

I was encouraged back in 2012-2014 by some great indie releases from Black Bug (the world never knew thee!), Dub Thompson, Thee Oh Sees and more. Now (Thee) Oh Sees release a record every eight months and nobody cares; Dub Thompson never became a thing; Black Bug broke up after releasing perhaps the single best scuzz-noise-industrial-punk album of the decade (Reflecting the Light), and bands like Perfect Pussy just fizzled and died.

Cat Seat Headrest still makes great indie rock. Fan base is a little uppity, but damned if the music isnít smart, catchy, genuine and ass-kicking. Apart from them/him, I canít think of much else thatís been consistently good and big enough to keep going in recent years.

:(

But yeah. Z is good.

I'll have to check out Car Seat Headrest. I think I'm just getting old. I have lost interest in exploring new music. Fortunately for me there's such a huge backlog of great bands and music from yesteryear to listen to and appreciate.


I'm listening to Attack of the Grey Lantern by Mansun.

This is such a great frickin' album. It's a grower.

Car Seat Headrest is trendy as fuck but undeniably solid rock.
