It's rare that so many of us agree on one album!

Now THIS is truly bitchen news. I've had the bootleg ^ literally for decades and it's thrilling to know it's gonna get a decent-sounding release. Plus, the 3CD version's price is pretty nice!

Cool!

Iím actually interested in this. I havenít listened to Guyville in forever, but it was a favorite for a while. Interest waned when Liz started to properly eat all kinds of shit (like, WOW, what a fall-off that was). But that detracts not at all from Guyville. Shouldnít anyway.

yeah I meant to mention that too. This week had a few things of interest to me... the Yo La Tengo, this new STP album with new singer, and the new Mount Eerie album.

Haha, so true. I really like Guyville a lot. Classic album, really. But she really did go to shit. I remember seeing her live in 2003 and seriously pitying her for how bad it was. It was just her as an opening act solo with guitar and no band, so that contributed a bit, but her songs at that time did not translate at all in that form. She totally just sucked the energy right out of the room. Very vivid memory that made a strong impression, sadly for how bad it just really was. I have not paid attention to her since.

I also had sort of slipped mentally on the new Yo La Tengo album. Excited to go check that out today. Also did not realize STP were doing a new one. While they have an odd history for sure with singers, I actually always sort of liked them as a band. Maybe just a guilty nostalgic pleasure from high-school, but still. Certainly will go check that out too.

I listened to half of it this morning on my commute. I'll say that it was sort of just a curiosity thing - This is their second self-titled album in a row which is odd. And they hired a new singer, just some guy who I guess was on one of those singing shows or something?

In Jr. High STP was huge for me. Core and Purple were big big. And then I always just kinda liked them through high school. And then lost interest for a while. But there's always been something weirdly fascinating about them to me. This sort of tug-o-war between grunge and glam I guess. And then Weiland had gone off - first to do the Velvet Revolver project, then some un-ironic crooner records and recorded an album of covers that never got a proper release and so on. There was a reunion; there was an album with a Linkin Park dude. There's just so much weirdness in that bands' history.

Anyway, I ramble. The new album is surprisingly solid. I'm not going to say "good" here, because frankly I imagine that 98% of this board hates STP haah. So really, I'd word it like this: I was really just shocked at how "Stone Temple Pilots" this album really sounds. It doesn't feel like a forced nostalgia. And it doesn't sound like they tried to find a guy to pretend he's Scott. It just sounds like the musicians went on doing what they always did, and they found another voice to fill the role. This record sounds to me like if you enjoy Purple or Tiny Music, then you'd enjoy this.

And holy crap I can't stop listening to this Breeders album. Now getting to know the songs, the off-kilter ones have seriously grabbed me, like others said. (and yes, Iris has ALWAYS been a serious favorite. I remember seeing this vid on MTV and being so entranced. It has still remained one of my favorite performances of anything, ever. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8sgVb6QtkE )

It really is hard to pinpoint, but this album really does have that certain "charm" to it. Maybe this lineup really does have a certain magical chemistry, not to get all existential and shit, but seriously. There is just something to this.

Precisely my sentiments as well. Very much my history and feelings about them. And yes, I think that tug-o-war you describe is quite accurate part of my fascination as well. It's well put.

Which is also why I feel kind of bad for them as a "band." As musicians.They really were a fucking standout show to me around their "peak" time. I honestly think there is a lot of interesting musicianship in some of that earlier stuff that people easily dismiss and cast aside as just another "grunge" band. Some pretty out-there songwriting on Purple and Vatican, honestly, that just seemed to work for me. And the brothers are really solid at their instuments.

Like said, I just sort of cast them off after all the later zaniness as most did. Almost went to their show when they came through with Chester but held off, specifically cuz I did not want to tarnish my fonder memories of them. I wanted to remember them as they were. Kind of sad, really. But hearing you describe that album as you did there makes me really want to go check this out. I think we are on pretty much the same wave about them. Honestly, I need to listen to the previous one as well. Never did entertain listening to that yet, either.

Any Ben Frost fans out here? Listened to the one track that's streaming of his new EP and liked it. Not sure if that's good or bad because I don't really like him ;-) Except live
The EP will be released March 23

YES I AM A BEN FROST FAN.

As I have made clear many times on this board, only to be mocked by whatíshisname ó guest or whatever. Not... like... real enough stuff for self-respecting music fans er some blah.

But yes. Ben Frost. Fan. Right here.

Didnít know there was *another* EP coming out, so thank you... not Iím excited!
