On Forlorn, the abyss becomes the answer.
Gabbie's Strong Wilding Sun moves forward like a newborn creature, taking everything in and finding enchantment in the newness of the world. (Guitar Noise Drone)
World What World
You will like it. Sounds like Crazy Horse..zonked-out shredfest that flings earworms as readily as they bomb out fried-psych solos.
that Three Rose Charm band is great! Totally oldschool 80s-style gothic rock with nice melodic hooks. I like this kind of stuff.
Hell yeah. One of my lucky Bandcamp finds. Saw them in Ashkelon Sain's (member of the Portland-based Ethereal/Darkwave project Trance To The Sun) collection. Wonderful stuff. Looking forward to playing them on a dancefloor if and when that sorta thing comes back some day.
Yves Tumor - The Asymptotical World EP
jajajjaja i like
great maracas lol
and autobahn has a hilariously 3rd world beginning (the car stalls, of course). the rest of it is fucking awesome.
also was listening to some early jim o'rourke last night. with henry kaiser
also henry kaiser and david lindley learning from the natives:
well i ran out of pictures upstairs looks like
more mexican institute of sound:
this one is 50/50, some tracks are great some sorta suck. the more sample/instrumental/formal/tropical/dance tracks = way better; the more singing/pop/rock structure = meh.
here's a review: https://salt-peanuts.eu/record/jim-o...ts-gustafsson/
this talk of "favorite track" the other day, trollin aside, sort of got me on a listening retrospective. hard to pick favorites but i really like the sy instrumentation of the jim o'rourke era and i'm trying to trace something in this i guess.
Surprised to be listening to a new Duster record. Brings the skronk but is ultimately held back by the ever energy sapping vocal.
Blew the foken stoner-downer cobwebs away with some nice 90's survival horror video game soundtrack meets Black metal, Punk, and Post Punk... music.
Tonight, I am listening to the Nine Inch Nails album Year Zero on its fifteenth birthday - god damn it's so good.
Select other albums I have heard in the past week or so:
* Roy Montgomery - And Now the Rain Sounds Like Life Is Falling Down Through It
* Minutemen - What Makes a Man Start Fires?
* Guided by Voices - Alien Lanes
* Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible
* Bright Eyes - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning
i had a couple of pleasant trips to the past today. all very mellow.
the sea and cake - oui
the orb's adventures beYond the ultraworld
the double album not the mangled american version. great 90s flashbacks for me, but totally listenable today.
i tried listening to the beatles' "rubber soul" for academic reasons. trying to understand history or whatever. some shit i had read yesterday prompted me to it. [eta: it was this https://www.nytimes.com/2000/01/03/a...l-century.html -notice the correction at the bottom: "Correction: Jan. 6, 2000
A Critics' Choices article on Monday about 25 pivotal albums in 20th-century popular music misidentified the one that inspired the 1966 Beach Boys recording ''Pet Sounds.'' It was the Beatles' ''Rubber Soul,'' not their ''Revolver.'' ]
i endured for a while, even some really ugly stuff, but when they started lamely singing "giiiiiiiiirl..." and playing mandolines or something and i just could not fucking take it anymore.
currently cleaning my ears with fantastic bolts of lightning found here:
sweet sweet relief. i feel like i'm recovering from an illness. history can eat shit.
I've kept coming back to this one since I first heard it somewhere last month.
Listened to the album, and several live versions (from Dime and Youtube), over and over and over. That riff is so addictive.
In the end I ended up buying the vinyl as well as the silent version, which is the book.
Bummer of it is that neither of them comes with a digital download :-(
so I'm considering in getting that still as well ...
But most of all what I'm listening to is live concerts of Silver Mt. Zion. I'm completely addicted to it, especially the years 2005/2006/2007-ish
Sometimes though, I will go all over the top and listen to a recording of them from 2001 even!
