I'm listening to The Music's self-titled. So good.

It certainly is, although I'm going to be wary of telling my friends that I listen to weird shit like that.

Now: Surfing on Sine Waves, by Richard D. James (as Polygon Window this time)

had to take a few days detour but im back on the rolo tomassi track

 


this is great but there are certain parts of i dont like, like when the vocals and one-note keyboards do a kind of chorus thingy, like some millennial pop shit, you know the kind, the millennial hey and clap and singing together shit. cheapens the moment. it’s still great though, overall.

Just got a ticket for BMSR's Norman show. Very small/tight venue. Have wanted to see them for a long, long time. Quite excited.

I am starting today off with Breeders' All Nerve. I can't get over how much I have fallen in love with this album.

I'm jealous.
I'm afraid I won't get many chances to see them (or tobacco or aesop) here.

Well then fuck you Bob Pollard on behalf of Bob Pollard because he says he’s an alcoholic right bloody here!

Anyway, Car Seat Headrest is like Guided by Voices, the Strokes and fucking Fleetwood Mac or something all got together, isolated the parts of their music that didn’t work or were boring and shoved all those elements up each other’s assholes.

It’s true prog-indie shit. It’s good, goddammit

But his emails ER I MEAN but his songwriting. Every Spiritualized album since Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space has strong songs but this time they're all strong and they make a strong whole, you dig?

Now I'm gonna sip some earl grey from my Spiritualized cuppa:

 


Guaranteed to make any kinda tea bitter ER I MEAN better.

Oh for sure.

Honestly the last song that really knocked my socks off was “Baby I’m Just A Fool” from “Songs in A&E.” That’s a goddamn great tune, but in that album’s case it was, like, the one song that stood out strongly. The one “year-end list” kind of song.
“Sweet Heart/Sweet Light” Maybe didn’t have any of those standouts.

This one has songs that sound at first like standard fair, but then, somehow, all kinda feel like standouts. Meaning, I guess, that the album is super good as a whole, yes.

(But that’s how I felt about the last two initially as well. Still think they’re good, don’t think they’re great from start to finish. “Let I’d Come Down” is better. “Ladies & Gentlemen...” and everything before it is... fucking masterful.

Classic case of the cover artwork not fitting the tone of the album. And that is a good thing.

Savage Clone 12.20.2018 11:01 PM

Considering his history with Cat Power, I think that cover is great.

I got it from the old Spiritualized website... remember that one, with the background that very gradually changed colors? That was pretty cool. I also got a few CDs from the Treader label there: J Spaceman's Guitar Loops, J Spaceman and Matthew Shipp's SpaceShipp (heh), Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith's Abbey Road Quartet, Han Bennink's Amplified Trio. All sent to me by Mr. John Coxon himself! All that stuff is out of print but they're resurrecting the label with vinyl releases now.

ANYWAY, it's not like you can't have your own Ladies And Gentlemen... mug, Snoop check this one from the current site/shop:

https://www.spiritualized.com/browse/spiritualized-global-merch-uk/products/ladies-and-gentlemen-mug-2

Sweet! Just don't buy one before I buy one myself, because who knows, there may be few left. And if your girlfriend gives you shit for spending your dough on it, you can pull a Bob Pollard and tell her you know what...
