oh I listened to the UUUUUUU (or "Six U's" as I've been referring to it when speaking to my drone loving friend) album a couple more times. Truely gnarly, especially on codeine...

atsonicpark 03.01.2009 09:24 AM

I haven't listened to the connors/o'rourke thing yet, I need to; personally, I don't really like connors that much. Boring stuff. How can someone collaborate with Fahey (on a different album) and be boring? Has way too many releases, though I've liked a few. I dunno. O'Rourke should bring the genius out in that collab. I'll download it soon...

Derek 03.01.2009 09:25 AM

You typed 7 U's //_-

And glad you like it! My next one should be better.

MOSAIC.WAV rule also.

ive been feeling particularly misanthropic lately, so last night i decided to stay up as long as possible, take 10 mg of xanax, smoke pot, and listen to lots and lots of scum rock records. whether it be wierd justpre-punk stuff like the electric eels, raven's "back to ohio blues" (sounds like led zeppelin had they never become famous and were forced to use the shittiest eqipment and recording setupus ever to support thier insatiable appetities for hard drugs and sex, the results are almost as great as zeppelin, haha), ive been listening to some of the discs from the same band's to cd boxsetl, of which Thurston put on his top 80 of 06 list in arthur, the Desperate Bicycles "Medium was a Tedium" 7 inch got two spins last night, definitly one of my favorite records.

ive actually be going to the Shit-Fi website and particularly searching out records on thier "Shit List", which is records that they feel fit the Shit-Fi aesthetic. That is, bands who made great sounding and interestinf records with the absolute bare minimum of recording equipment, more lo fi than lo fi. needless to say, that totally represents what im into concerning music.

last night i also pulled out my favorite japanese and british and some american loud as hell, noisy hardcore records. the violent party compilation album, state children, chaos uk, discharge, coward's "voice" 7 inch, Gauze, and Gloom.

wierder albums i listened to were Trans-Industrial Tou Orchestra "Subterfuge" and D. CHarles Speer's "Same Forgotten COuntry"

I also listened to Burzum's "Aske", No New York, the first two Motorhead albums, and Times New Viking.

just finished listening to Wolves In The Throne Room's new one; Black Cascade. It was good, but didn't touch Two Hunters.

Thanks for all the support haha. When I look back on it I feel kind of disappointed with the album... but I'm my own worst critic. I'll get better.

1.5/5 It was crap, but for some reason I didn't have a hard time getting through it. Weird.

and ive really fallen in love with mozart. especially his operas.
and the eroica wa the last thing that we leanred last semester. such an amazing symphony.
i dont know brittens guitar work. but ill check it out. i do like dowland so im sure itll be interesting.
is ritten he one that wrote a young person's guide to the orchestra? thats a great peice

listening to robbie basho-venus in cancer

Haydn - you'll have to recommend me something. The problem I have with him is there's a massive glut of it without anything that's come to my attention as standing out. 1st movement of the 98th symphony - that's an awful lot of symphonies, y'know?

But then, that's true of Bach and Mozart, two composers I adore, for the most part.

The Britten guitar piece for John Dowland... I think the memorium should be taken with a pinch of salt. It's one of those ones that's good, but I never noticed Dowland treating the tonic with such ill-regard. It may be by lack of musicological chops, but I think he's taking a very episodic inspiration from what I've heard of Dowland.

Britten did do the young person's guide.... I prefer Saint-Saen's carnival of the animals in the 'kids orchestral pieces' category. Britten is always a funny one for me, goes far too close to the horrors of British pastoral for my liking.

I've half a mind to listen to Solti doing Mahler's 8th now. But I think I'll stick with my Strauss-a-thon.
