And as a companion piece, another great self-titled EP featuring darkly-inclined, shoegazey music with haunting female vocals. Very underrated. "Neither Sleeping, Neither Waking" is such an amazing song.

why do i love streaming? well. the first rilo kiley ep was always out of print. 3 pressings, relabled as initial friends, never available. i got the first 2 full albums at kim's video, i remember. as cds

so ages ago i got the initial friends in shitty mp3 from some fileshare. reconstructed from references, because they changed some things. pain in the fucking ass

but in spite of all my "collecting" efforts those hard drives bit the dust in nineteenclacketyclack or something. they weighed a fuckton. had a literal filing cabinet drawer full of those. legal size

then the ep was reissued in vinyl in 2020 (pandemic!). sold out in presale. ffs! i never even found out.

but now, accidentally, i saw this:

 


thanks, apple, you capitalist monster, you agent of the antichrist!

ubiquitous access. no file management. no hard drives. no carting plastic shit all over creation <3

took for fucking ever to get the ipod right. it finally is doing what it's supposed to

wtf am i saying ipod. it's on the tv lol (with good speakers though). i can see the stupid lyrics hahahaha. i love this consumer decadence

^ Interesting choice. Do you like Jenny Lewis solo as well? I have her whole discography. I have Jenny stuff that even Jenny doesn't have. :D

no actually after the foxes shit stuff or was it more adventurous she went country or something i quit. blake sennett was annoying as a singer but maybe he brought something to the band

i love the early bubblegum tunes with the overly mature and cynical lyrics actually. im not much into lyrics tbh but i can actually understand every word she says and the counterpoint here is great. but make it too earnest and i'm out of there

haaaaaaahaaaaaahaaaaaa!

that's a horrible little dance

anyway the apple version of the first ep doesn't include "keep it together," which is such a fine little string of insults, very fucking funny, was a hidden track in which pressing i will never know

now im laughing at the though that teenage love song might have included a joke about dave foley who i found out funded their first album. who knows. but i really hope so, hahaha

 


hahahahahaaa

While it's not exactly "bubblegum", you should get into Steely Dan, man. For real. Their whole discography. Catchy tunes? Check. Jazzy? Check. "Overly mature, cynical", mean (sometimes downright misanthropic) lyrics about a cast of fucked up characters that rival Tom Waits' or non-soundtrack Randy Newman's? Check. Plus that Wayne Shorter on Aja, what's not to dig...

Magdalena Bay - Mercurial World


This album is the pure, distilled essence of Pop. It's catchy, at times very bubblegummy and unabashedly confident. And damn is the production smooth on that one. Layers upon layers of cascading synths, fx and sweet melodies. And then there are the seemless transitions. This album has fascinated me for a while now. Lots of nods to the 80s and 90s here and there, nothing entirely new, but assembled and arranged in such a charming and personal way. Can't help but love it.

Antagon 12.24.2023 08:15 AM

 



Chilling before a C-Eve deejaying session later on. It's the kind of solemn and tranquil a Grinch like me can enjoy.

a version of Last Christmas that is still listenable :)

Antagon 01.03.2024 07:38 PM

A recap of my pre-new year picks last week, cause I couldn't be arsed to post earlier:


Last Thursday

Yeule - Softscars

My contemporary pick. A nice blend of 90s Alt-rock riffs and current Electropop
sensibilities with a good deal of glitchy goodness.

 



Ida E Os Voltas - Self-Titled 1986 Demo

Great, underrated Brazillian Post-Punk.

 


And on NYE before heading out to a party:

 


No introduction needed. Just a really fine comfort listen I hadn't spun in a while. "By This River" is still one of the most heartrending songs ever.

A bunch of my friends are obsessed with this one, and while I thought it was alright, part of it just seemed a little too contrived or artificial to me? Like, it's very consciously being like "this is what excites the audience we want, so we'll do it". I liked Jane Remover's last record more for covering similar ground.

The Soup Nazi 01.04.2024 01:25 AM

 


Carla Bozulich - Red Headed Stranger. Best song-by-song "cover" of a full album ever. Well, it's either this one or Pussy Galore's Exile On Main St...

_tunic_ 01.07.2024 06:17 AM


 



For a free album it's pretty good, but while listening I do am tempted to hear some Rusty Crazy Horse!

dirty bunny 01.19.2024 02:36 AM

Radiohead. Right now "Stop Whispering"

_tunic_ 01.19.2024 11:02 AM


 





 



 



they label it as "depressive black metal". Even though I still don't really like this type of singing/screaming/whatever you call it, the music is great.

!@#$%! 01.22.2024 03:56 PM

skultura - nick dunston
 

thanks, wire tapper!

old timey metal

 


hahahaha while "o fortuna" is by now a supertired spooky signifier in movies, practically synonym with mr. diabolum himself (same as poor satie with his gymnopédie #1 overused and abused for a melancholy feel...) ... most of this recording is quite cheerful and almost dancy actually. and it's orff-approved! anyway, medieval aspirations aside, sounds to me more like bizet's choruses... and by the time it gets to cour d'amours it frequently gets quite lyrical. very fucking good. i used to have this very same cd ages ago
