yeah. I mean there's actually enough on Good News to make me like it as a whole. But after that... nope. Nothing.

Lonesome Crowded is my favorite. But I love all those records before Good News. You forgot about Sad Sappy Sucker! So much gold on there. "and this IS about jealous lovers/ba da da da..." so good. I thought that the Ugly Cassanova album was pretty good. "Things I don't remember" was a fantastic single anyway. But the UC album was def better than the latter day Mouse.

Sharpen Your Teeth, yeah. I like that very much at the time. Soundtracked a very weird time in my life that, looking back, was almost entirely awful and depressing. But boy did "Hotcha Girls" hit the spot for me back then. (I was in relationship with aforementioned girl, and it had yet to explode into the most unhealthy symbiosis of my life).

White or red? Never mind. Doesn't matter. No, I did not.

You've got to sit down (or drive around) and listen to Car Seat Headrest though. Seriously. This year's Teens of Denial and last year's Teens of Style. Both genuinely exciting and fun indie rock records.

You will do that now.

The Minutemen.

everything up to Double Nickels is killer. though I think they are one of those bands I enjoyed more when I was younger. I used wear these albums out on vinyl ordered from SST.


just sayin, still an amazing band. the humble no frills music they make always thrills me.

pepper_green 12.07.2016 07:14 PM

...Weezer are cocksuckers, whether green, red or whatever variety they present themselves. should listen to John Lee Hooker instead. Modest Mouse can go shit out a broke stick too.

if the noisier aspect of it turns you off a bit then yeah, this one's not going to be your favourite hahaha...this is from the 90s trio lineup so it's almost complete skronk, there's the skeletons of their old songs but they're totally blasted by mizutani and there's only bass & drums to hold the tracks together (which they don't), only audible though when mizutani is singing. more similar to fushitsusha's pathetique than anything else really, real black hole noise. not in the same way as their late 70s work where he was at least trying to shape the feedback into the songs whereas here it's pure nihilism.

Seriously, has anyone listened to this? It's not all bangers, but THIS for instance is one of the most jubilant dance songs you've heard since Daft Punk was still in their heyday.

Fucking jubilant I tells ya.

it's like some loser did a fairly good job in his mommas room to copy house and Daft Punk. otherwise, if I was someone I wouldn't be digging this too much because it's lame.

pepper_green 12.11.2016 12:07 AM

Beach Boys -Love You
Survivor- Vital Signs
New Edition - Candy Girl
The Beatles - White Album
Bob Dylan- BOB
Public Enemy - Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos
Jackson 5 - greatest hits
MJ - Dangerous

that's what i've been jamming to.

pepper_green 12.11.2016 09:58 AM

Blondie - Parallel lines

perfect pop and rock blend that you can't get anymore besides retro shit. such a good album.

Rest of the album has a lot of different hues and tones to it. Even I wouldn't be able to handle an entire album of this kind of thing, but that song is just ... Yowza.

I know I'm more likely to fall for bouncy house and techno than the average SYG bear, but compared to other ecstatic bump songs from 2016, like Avalanches' "Because I'm me," this sounds fresh and pure as Afgahn ear heroin. :)

Also, Kornél Kovács is part of the extended DJ Koze and Pampa adjacent family, so there's some real weirdness and skill at play. Have you ever heard Amygdala?
