That post was supposed to be in response to your enthusiastic "I Have Sonic Youth Tickets" post, but it ended up at the top of the page so now I just look unstable.

I think you should take that statement onboard anyway, though.

So, after watching "Let My Shoes Lead Me Forward" multiple times on Rage and Youtube, I've developed a liking of Jenny Wilson's music. Are any of her other songs any good?

At the very least, the stopmotion music video is strangely captivating.

After months of searching, I finally found a copy of this classic record the other day.

For those who don't know, it's the album that formed a template for more-or-less every britpop band in the 1990s to follow. The Darkness's first album is almost a direct rip of it, too.

Sort of like the way that The Raptures Echoes record is a direct rip of Gang of Four's Entertainment! album.

Currently listening to: DJ Shadow - The Outsider.

EDIT: A quick review....

DJ Shadow, why the hell are you doing krunk?
I'm sure it's the best of the genre out there.... but it's not you, man!

*sigh*

Aki Onda, lads. He plays at Electrofringe every once in a while. I think I've mentioned him before in this thread. Listen to a bit of his stuff, it's amazing. Japanese ambient. Japanese people go crazy with everything they do, so you can imagine what Japanese ambient is like. Amen's would be awesome, so listen however you must

As someone who owns like six Susumu Yokota albums, I know exactly what Japanese ambient can sound like...

Incidentally, everyone needs to go and buy a Mastodon record. It's heavy metal the way it's supposed to sound.

Mastodon are ok. They kind of remind me of Isis but supercondensed.

I have been addicted to Smog. He is great. I recommend the albums Dongs of Sevotion, Knock Knock and Red Apple Falls.

I'm really enjoying The White Room. Some good music there. I missed seeing them live, sadly. Might see them is about a month.

I'm talking about the Geelong rock band, The White Room, and their first album White Room Music.

Are KLF any good? I kept getting directed to them when looking for inormation on the local White Room.

If you like early-1990s proto-house with an anarchaic-punk bent, then yes, KLF are awesome.

Try harder. Both Oceanic and Panopticon at least are great albums.

Spank Rock's album Yoyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyoyo (give or take a few yo's) is awesome. It's trashy as hell and I sure as hell they play the whole thing at Big Day Out. If at least the song Sweet Talk because that is ONE OF MY FAVOURITES.

Mmm... 1980s pop production...

Dude you don't need to use a "..." in every post you make.
Which Knife album do you have? I think I prefer Silent Shout slightly if only because it doesn't have all those stupid "OMG I R SO CRAZY LOL" moments.

I've seen The White Room live, when they toured with The FolloW. I can't really remember much of their set, but it wasn't really my thing. I've never heard any of their music, other than what I heard when they were live. They didn't strike me as the most talented artists. Their set seemed to be full of strained vocals and feedback. But, maybe that's the sound they're aiming for. And if they are, good for them, they achieved it.

The FolloW on the other hand are a fantastic band live. Their tragically-happy tunes are fun to dance around to. They're easily not everyone's cup of tea, with songs relying on heavy use of distortion pedals, and some screaming vocals. But, I have to say, they're a group of very talented and insanely passionate artists, and when you hear their music/see them live, the passion and good vibes are quite infectious. When I first saw them live in September, I was standing at the back of the room, expecting the band to be a mess of feedback and nothing but screaming, much like the other bands that had been playing that night. But after they played one song, I moved from the back of the room, up to the front, right near the stage, And before I knew it, I was dancing the night away for the duration of their set. They're quite easily one of the best bands to see at a music festival because there's an insane vibe of happiness that goes bouncing off the walls (or lack thereof). If you're into music that makes you just want to let loose, have fun, and dance like nobody is watching then The FolloW is a band for you! http://www.myspace.com/thefollow

Another Australian band that I'm quite impressed with is Transport, they're a fabulous band from Brisbane. They're the kind of rock band that are great for kicking back with some mates and having a really good time. They're the great kind of rock for a summer's afternoon when you're with your mates and you aren't interested in listening to music that's full of whiney propaganda. Their tunes showcase some real talent, and an infectious kickin' party vibe. When they're live, they don't mind entertaining the crowd between songs with insturmental pieces and some crazy antics of some sort ( last time Keir, the vocalist, strutted around, looking like a chicken of some sort - completely unexpected, but entertaining all the same. Although i'm not sure if he intended to look like a chicken...). They're a fantastic band, and the mind boggles as to why no one, other than Triple J and 4zzz haven't picked them up. If you're sick of emotional, whiney rock, then Transport is the cure! http://www.myspace.com/transportmusic

I finally saw them live on the Friday before I had to vote (so the, what, 24th?), and I was very impressed. I had heard of problems last few times they performed, but they sounded great at the Barwon Club. I think they set the instruments up properly, as the support bands were terrible (as in acoustics). One was so loud you couldn't hear them. One was apparently really echoey (I only stayed for a few minutes of the first support band).

They're not the best band in the world, but they are talented and will hopefully get some real recognition.

Lol, what an apt description. Ah, the KLF brings back memories...

I used to only listen to electronic music, but have since expanded my horizons to include all sorts of stuff. Anyone here listen to film scores (ie. non-anime, Hollywood film scores)? I'm a big fan of film scores...

Currently listening to:

Jars of Clay - Good Monsters
Mute Math - Mute Math
This Day and Age - The Bell and the Hammer
Klaus Badelt - The Promise
Husky Resuce - Country Falls
The Cinematic Orchestra - Every Day
Carl Finlow - Electrilogy +

Album of the year, IMO. It's absolutely amazing. I should be going to see her when she tours.

In unrelated news, I have New Pornographers tickets.

So I was driving home the other night and I was listening to Tv on the Radio's "Return to Cookie Mountain" when I realised that it is the only album that really blew me away this year. Therefore it is my choice for album of the year (to be honest I am sort of annoyed at Ys at the moment). Although, Liars really really did come close with Drums' Not Dead. If you haven't heard either of them, then you really should.

I am about to explode in anticipation for a new M.I.A. album, but she is off in Liberia doing 'the Princess Diana thing' or something.

Arcade Fire = one trick pony AM I RITE?
Also there are records coming out before that one that are more exciting. Example, Deerhoof. Example, Modest Mouse. Actually yeah that's all I can think of right now.

Today I finally ordered the fiery furnaces' blueberry boat album, because I love it so and only just realised I don't have an actual copy.

Black Cat dude needs more Fugazi, Husker Du and Mission of Burma. And Blood Brothers.

I spent the whole of last night listening to Pet Sounds and Sgt. Pepper. How come no mainstream pop acts make stuff like that anymore?

You realise that "stuff like that" only really comes along once in a lifetime, right?

I mean, we haven't had a world-changing record since, what, 1991? And before that it was... 1976? And before that were the two albums you mention in 1967.

There's also the fact that record companies are unwilling to take risks on actual talent anymore, preferring to churn out perfectly-pitched manufactured pop.

For the next Sgt. Pepper or Pet Sounds, what you'd need is a band that has been around for long enough, with enough popularity and success and critical success to do something completely different.

Jack White would be an obvious candidate.

I would agree but Jack White kind of sucks.

I agree that yeah there hasn't been many ground breaking records lately but I'm thinking that's more because there is less ground to break. Artists these days like to slowly budge the edges of their envelopes and no-one busts through it completely. Hence long-term change in sounds that don't really stick out.
Or something.

p.s. Kid A was the last one. 1991? What? If you're thinking of R.E.M. or something, lol.

I'm guessing Nirvana's Nevermind...

Nevermind.

Kid A does not have that impact. If anything, it would be OK Computer, seeing how that album consistently tops "best album of all-time" charts.

1991 was a pretty big year for groundbreaking music, actually. You had Nirvana and the whole grunge thing on one side of the atlantic, and you had dance music and the British "summer of love" on the other side.

Good times.

Nevermind isn't really on par with Pet Sounds and Sgt. Pepper. Personally, I feel that Kid A is superior to OK Computer in terms of innovation but I guess it just comes down to preference.
Upon considering this issue late at night I've come to decide that no-one ever is ever going to unanimously agree on the legendary status of any albums since those two. Hell, some people still actually don't like The Beatles.
Hence me wondering if one day there will be agreement. On anything. Ever.

I went to the big day out and now I'm infatuated with a Brisbane band called I Heart Hiroshima. They only have two EPs but they're really great. They remind me of a drier sounding PJ Harvey mixed up with Sleater-Kinney. With a man singing. .. whatever that means.

Any fans of The Birthday Massacre here? They are an awesome synthrock/goth band. <3 Very 80's, they are. Very Happy

I got the new Arcade Fire this morning. It ranges from boring to only-ok. Confused

I'm enjoying it so far, although they're channelling Bruce Springsteen a bit too much on this song.
