I uploaded this for people:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/hgmptj

This is the weirdest Jandek album in forever. It's just acoustic and voice but... I dunno. There's something different about it. For starters, there's a 24 minute song on it with Jandek just rambling about all this insane shit. The last 10 seconds of the song have an actual repeated riff. Really took me offguard. Then there's a song with these lyrics:

DEFLECT THE BARBARIANS
YOU CAN'T LET NOBODY TAKE YOUR SOUL
YOU GOT YOUR HEAD STONED AT 9 YEARS OLD AND YOU'RE BLEEDING FROM YOUR HEAD AND ALBERT TAKES HIS BLUE SHIRT FROM OFF HIS BACK AND WRAPS HIS STONE.. BLOOD... HEAD.. IN HIS SHIRT AND SAYS COME ON LET'S GO AND WE GO TO HIS HOUSE TO HIS STREET AND HIS MOTHER STOPPED THE PROCESS OF MY DEMISE

This album's insane! I think it's his 60th. I'm getting to the point where Jandek is the only musician whose music I'm really excited to listen to whenever he drops a new album. I'm sure you all agree. Enjoy! I wrote some lyrics out while listening.

I got to be like ice
Frozen up in time
I can't ever change
It sure is hard to work with less
I want it almost dry
I want you to try
try
While I go through the motions
And I move about from various places
I'm at my home
It's my home there, can't be no heavy guy out there
You've got to vanquish your memories and remember me
I'm the only thing that exists and you're all around me I'm the center of the universe you are everything else
I'm so glad I know you
If it's between 5:30 and 6:00 PM
You know I'll be drinking your water as I swim in your sea
It's such good exercise
I'm a powerful me
And I know that you like it, this power I got
Don't feel too good
Or you'll be feeling bad
Just take it easy
Don't get glad
Or don't get sad
I'm so enthralled
It ain't good
No... bad
I'll be above it all
If that's where you live
I live with you
There's no difference there about the eagle, yes, into you
I can't find myself and I don't want to
I'm inside of you
And I'll .......
I need you
Perfect
That's what you are
Perfect
Perfect
Yeaaaaaaah-wheeeeeee-whoaaaaaaa
Kill all the bad things
And boom your back again
You're saying that you worked
I supposed to do this, that
But you don't understand
I don't have to change
And if I break my body
It's broken and you hate who I am
It's a little place I can go
For some kind of thrill *punches guitar*
Exotic and dangerous
Pestulent, maybe? I dunno
But I know I can surpass threats
If I'm ... got to know ... how you pass time in that place
So, intrigue?
But I don't have to move
I'm stuck in you
But I'll take you with me
You won't show yourself
And we got GOD
And we don't pose a threat
And we are opposite
We've come through the earth and you can see easy we're something different today we can go easy but when we survive the pestulence and the river to cross, to get to that desert on the last part of the river
If you go north
It's sand and sun
but on the other side
it's a river going up and you go with it!
YOU'RE WHERE THE WATER STARTS AGAIN
I got to tell you
How my head swings low
And I got to love my life
It's my life
You see?
I leave myself before you
Trample me down
I'm gone for you
I disappear
I divided and conquered
I lead waste to your territory
You loved me for that
I got certain recollections of the rocks and things
I say, "Bye bye bye."
I say, "Byyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeee byyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeee."

*actual riff that sounds like a bit of "musical talent" was involved in making it*


Wow!

Best album of 2009 so far. Even better than Merriweather Post Pavillion!

just because something is weird doesn't make it awesome.

AC has matured from their early 20 year-old selves and realized that weird music doesn't necessarily mean good music.

I'm not saying anything about jandek, as I will happily give this a listen, but there is no way it can be 1 million times better than MPP because its "weird".

and i love weird. and I can be hella weird sometimes. and I worship Beefheart.

mpp is pretty meh so far, but i won't put it down, since i put down strawberry jam and now it's one of my favorites by them, so perhaps it will grow on me.

at least it's not as bad as feels.

Who are you directing this at? It's certainly not at me. Did someone send you a PM saying "man, check out the jandek thread; that album's better than MPP because it's WEIRD." .... Because I never said anything like that nor suggested that this album is better "cuz duh heyyy man its fuckin weeerder than animul colleective dawg". My enjoyment of music has nothing to do with its "weirdness", I was simply noting, man Jandek keeps getting stranger on every release! Sorry to be an asshole here, but come on. To even suggest that's how I feel about music is kind of retarded.

Also, gotta disagree, Beefheart isn't "weird", aside from some of his lyrics. Forward-thinking and inventive, yes.

it was kind of directed at you, but not really since i know you don't just like stuff if its weird. But from the posts thus far, I felt that statement needed to be made.

as for Beefheart, I was referring to his lyrics, since the jandek lyrics you posted kind of have that vibe

I originally said "this album's a thousand times better than merriweather post pavillion" instead of "even better than merriweather post pavillion". I dunno, just seemed like a better thing to say. Cuz most people might hear this and go "you know, it's not a thousand times better, it's approximately 963.53552 times better" and then I'd argue with them for an hour and... man, my work is never finished.

What is the name of the Jandek documentary?

I will have to buy this album, since I can't download it at work, and my computer at home has crashed. Still, Jandek is one of the guys I would like to support.
