anyway joy division was a great band, no doubt. but my problem with them now is i can always hear the hangman. i mean this constant drive towards depression and self obliteration that promptly tires me the fuck out.

new order was a great reinvention, and has a much larger output and were in more ways defining of their era. yes they at times made some horrendous unlistenable disco, but their best stuff i can listen to all day in every possible remix and not feel like i drank a bad batch of kombucha and now need medicine.

So I spend too much time on twitter. Leamealone

Everyone, really? Up until now I'd have been hardpressed to find anyone who'd say so. Maybe I live in a bubble, but it's Joy Division over New Order all the way. And I strongly agree with that assessment. Not that I don't like New Order, they had a few absolute bangers, but their output doesn't even come close to the impact Joy Division had on me - both on an emotional level and relating to my listening habits.

Weyes Blood - Rough Trade Session (EP)

A condensed, stripped-down cut with the perfomances of three of the (imho) best tracks of the most recent album. Her voice can really shine with this arrangement. If I were to nitpick, then I'd say it's a pity that arguably the most impressive track of the album - its showstopping opener "A Lot's Gonna Change" was reduced to a short instrumental intro. And granted, the featured tracks had added layers of arrangement on the album that worked in their favor. But it's a really solid release that perfectly accentuates both the vocal and songwriting skills of Weyes Blood and all of the tracks I thought were kind of meandering on Titanic Rising are blissfully absent. So I enjoyed it a lot more than the album. Highly recommended.

I think Iím just falling into a recency bias and letting some thread on twitter impact my reasoning. Must be.

I like New Order too, but I canít quite concede that theyíre better or even at the level of Joy Division, despite being VERY different groups.
Itís not, like, a Minor Threat/Fugazi situation, where the original band is just outclassed in every way by the band that grew from their ashes.

Not saying itís a Nirvana/Foo Fighters or Beatles/Wings situation either. New Order is great, but ... I mean, JOY DIVISION.

Oh well.
Iím dumb.

Apparently their debut (2008ís Deathconsciousness, which everyone thinks came out in the 2010s because of a reissue) is considered like GY!BE at their absolute best level post-rock by these kids.

I think itís solid, but not THAT good. New album has some nice tracks too, but again, not THAT good.

Science Beat is cool.


Overall I like their 2014 album The Unnatural World because Iím a contrarian or whatever

Oh come ON, that's insane too. I love Fugazi and they were of course more multi-dimensional than Minor Threat, but they most certainly did NOT "outclass" the latter "in every way". "Filler", "Out Of Step"... Fugazi may have done music as good as that, but they didn't surpass it.

Fuck is this "Twitter" shit you get musical statements from, anyways?

A KCRW session from almost exactly five months ago is still alive on Dime:

http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-d....php?id=652872

By the bye, the Rough Trade Session was originally a bonus disc which came with the (yes) Rough Trade-sold edition of Titanic Rising. Not uncommon Rough Trade shenanigans - Anna Calvi's debut album featured a special collection of classical music selected by Anna, while Caitlin Rose's Own Side Now and The Stand-In both included special additional live/demo goodness. But, as far as I know, the Weyes Blood sesh is the only number which has made it to Bandcamp (in other words, it's the only one you don't have to bleed money to get in decent sound now that the editions with bonus CDs are out of print).

I love Minor Threat but Fugazi even did proper hardcore better, sorry.

I LOVE Minor Threat. But Fugazi matched the intensity, in different ways, and vastly surpassed MT in terms of dynamics and overall musicality.

Sorry dude yo.

Also, nobody shuts up about it and it lets everyone think theyíre a goddamn expert.

REMEMBER WHEN PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAD TO FIND OUT WHAT THEY LIKED BY, I DUNNO, GOING TO MUSIC STORES AND SHOWS INSTEAD OF DIGITALLY SOCIALIZING WITH GODDAMN CULTURE TROLLS.
