absolutely, it sounds great, but not glossy. love the guitar layers (anyone else reminded of goo with some of the guitar tones, especially on the first song?), and the acoustic songs just sound amazing. honest, in-your-face, haunting... easily his best work in 20 years.

"In D" by Arandel is easily one of the best records I've heard this year. Impressive stuff. One anonymous french guy doing something between techno and neo classical music, with strict rules - no midi, no external sampling -, extensive use of organic instruments ; super interesting, and super beautiful. Incredible record, really.

Sounds great, checking it out.

I got TUNGS - SLEEPING a few weeks ago, it's pretty cool, underproduced psychadelic/shoegaze stuff with great melodies and fuzzy boombox production. The sound quality occasionally gets on my nerves (I don't mind so much that it's underproduced, I just think that some of the melodies and riffs deserve to shine brighter and clearer) but the songs are so good that it works.

Definitely one of the best albums of the year.

MALE BONDING - NOTHING HURTS (cool songs but don't watch their videos, they're lame)
LOS ROBERTAS - CRY OUT LOUD
DUM DUM GIRLS - I WILL BE

and that FRANKIE ROSE AND THE OUTS albums are all quite good. I'm starting to get into short fast melodic indie rock again. For now.

Yeah, the new oh sees is alright, I listened to it probably 10 times the first week I had it but got bored with it... they're a consistent band, though I wish they'd mix their sound up a bit more. This is like the 10th album I've heard by them, and it's not bad at all, but it's a bit safe...

I am really digging the new mike watt album, "hyphenated-man". Weird art punk with ultra-weird and -awesome Magic Band rhythms, it doesn't really sound like the Minutemen like might expect; in fact, it's better than most Minutemen stuff (and I'm a big Minutemen fan). Highly reccomended.

Anyone digging the new Zs and Extra Life? I was a bit disappointed with em compared to the old works (that last zs ep, the one that has one 18 minute song, is one of my fav. ep's ever; this new album is a bit too noisey and samey for me), especially that new extra life which is just way too vocally dominated, in an obnoxious way. Still, some absolute great music.

REISSUE OF THE YEAR = Horribly Wrong - Come On and Bleed Along With... uniquely violent snotty garage punk.

new polysics ep and new polysics best-of (they have, like, 4 best of records!) with like 5 new songs, and a new residents album are also on my playlist.

so far my favorite records overall are definitely the new neil young, michael yonkers, mike watt, honey ride me a goat, and ikonika.

Well yeah, I find it way better then help but yeah their sound is showing it first damages(lucky enough the album is only something like 30 minutes). Mostly I prefer the way more lo-fi'er stuff like The Hounds Of Foggy Notion and master bedroom but I personally was really surprised by warm slime even one more album in that style would get to much.

New Slaves kind of irritated me at first but grew on me a bit, it's not that amazing but decent work. As like you I love their ep's way more.

Nice.. I appreciate your intelligent, thoughtful responses!

Seriously, check out that mike watt album, it really shocked me how good it is.

Hmmm still not a huge tugboat fan, it's a ok album but with the great people guesting on it is a disappointing one. I see it's with the missing man which is a good thing, the EP they did with Lou Barlow with the updated losercore version was great.

So I might get through mine insane listening and studying schedule but I will try to listen to it.

Yes! It was strange listening to that album at first, I didn't expect anything like it, but it just gets better and better the more I listen to it.

Still, as far as this years Dead C-related releases are concerned, I think I prefer Patience.

Listening to Weekend - Sports right now. Pretty good. Dark, noisy JAMC-style shoegaze. Nothing you haven't heard before, but I like this kind of music so it works fine for me.

the minutemen are basically my favorite band, at least tied with the likes of SCG sonic youth and the fall.
i watt has released some decent solo stuff, not as boog as the MM but decent. he is also super nice.
so i will definitrly giver this a listen.

In that case, you and da park can recommend me some records by them please. I've known their name for years and the only song by them I remember hearing was a great one aeons ago on the radio.
