listened earlier to the new bat fangs.

 



a first for me, having not heard their previous album. but i like it some. i think if they stopped singing in unison, or better yet stopped singing altogether and played their instruments, i could love this band's 80s homages. "psychic eye" the best track for me--a good jam.

now back to this old album (old already! lol. time is weird.)

 


it's funny to talk about time with this band though, not trying to sound corny but it's like they're timeless. not timeless with a capital t, just... they're their own thing, could be from the 60s or 70s or some other era (not the 80s though lol)

This is pretty close to a perfect EP. Fun, inspired arrangements and heckload of atmosphere. It achieves everything it needs to achieve in its short running time.


The final song "Min Trampolin" is a beautifully odd blend of Pavement, Duster (before Duster) and Nirvana. It's about a guy wanting to go back to the innocent days of his childhood - when there was juice in his glass and even mundane things like his uncle singing seemed fascinating. Culminating in the wistful remark "My trampoline: Now you're my only hope!"

I mean, how can a song be so wonderfully ridiculous and satirical, yet also so moving and genuine? It's a mystery.

my vote, at least the first one that popped into my head would be The Breeder's Safari EP. But also Low & Dirty Three's In The Fishtank collab (not sure if it is an EP actually though) perhaps it's too long), And one or two of the SYR releases, and and and and etc etc etc ;-)




Anyway, I'm now listening to this:
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 'The Jam' (One More Time With Feeling)

which is very cool and much better (sorry) than the last few Nick Cave releases.


Also listened to these two yesterday on their day of release:


 

Oud Zeer by Jan Swerts

It's music inspired by graveyards, wonderful neo-classical minimal piano music and some drones





 




In Virus Times by Lee Ranaldo

it's sweet. Very curious how the physical edition will look like as well. It doesn't ship until next month though .... bummer




And during the last week(s), I've been on a diet of Dirty Three and Silver Mt Zion live shows, listening to them on my commute to work and back.


Up the queue for today:
a Gaelynn Lee album that I got for free
The Living Room Sessions - Gaelynn Lea LIVE [2020 Album] by Gaelynn Lea

Right, first we'd have to define what constitutes an EP. In the good ole days of this board, that part alone would take up two pages of the thread, a flame war and all kinds of name-calling.

that's weird, Bandcamp page says December 6 as shipping date. Maybe he got it elsewhere which ships differently? Oh well, it will arrive someday anyway


Now playing:
 



I still love this album after hearing it so many times!

No dude, full Bandcamp operation. Here's the explanation:

Quote:
**Orders placed after 11/12 will ship out by 12/6**

He ordered In Virus Times and Body/Dilloway/Head on October 22 (he already received the latter as well). By the way, as I type this, there are only seven copies of IVT left...

Got it too - she was very generous with us fanboys.

Love it. LOVE. IT. Sounds a bit like Dilloway remixing Kim & Nace, but that's probably an oversimplification of what they did and the studio and will do in concert - I hope a/some live recording(s) surface!
