I already have the bacon brothers. It's really good.

Tessa you should already know you are not allowed to respond to my posts.

Andrew, could you give me a little more information on those albums. Perhaps some comparisons and a review?

Sharon Jones = soul music in the classic sense. See review in the Music forum. Upcoming Shows thread.

APTBS = Kind of shoegazey, mostly noisy rock n' roll band. Think Suicide, JAMC, the Ventures and Joy Division, thrown into a blender. God, I hate name dropping Joy Division.

Opal = psychedelic group from 80s. Pre-Mazzy Star project for a couple of the members of Mazzy Star (not Hope Sandoval).

The Levellers = anthemic, kind of Celtic rock n' roll. Yes, lyrics are corny, etc. But it is also catchy and fun and enjoyable rock music. For a good idea of their sound and why I like them...

Edit: This is what I've been listening to the past few days. If you want specific album suggestions, or different types of music, I can do that. But I'm going to bed soon. So it might be in the morning.

I always figured anything I like you've already heard. Let me think.

I like the new Les Savy Fav quite a bit.


I've also been on a Jim White kick of late. Ever listen to him?

Never heard Jim White. I'm always nervous about Les Savy Fav. I don't like there albums. I like their seven inches.

Jim White is on Luaka Bop - he's like psychadelic country. Hick-hop, he calls it.

finishing my 2007 album reviews... here are a couple you could check out

Tomahawk - Anonymous :: mike patton & drummer from Battles.. they took 19th century Native American songs and rocked em... definitely one of the most unique and creative releases of the year

Mystery Palace - Flags Forward :: circuit bender backed by a live band..similar to Junior Boys..

LCD Soundsystem - 45:33 :: pretty cool "workout" album... i think i may end up liking it more than Silver

John Stanier was the drummer for Helmet. Tomahawk - Anonymous is an excellent album.

Lee "Scratch" Perry has a new album comming out in May. Its produced by Andrew W.K. Should be interesting to say the least.
I dont any tracks have leaked off of it... but all this talk about reggae and dub just reminded me of it. More of an FYI.


Tomahawk - Anonymous :: mike patton & drummer from Battles.. they took 19th century Native American songs and rocked em... definitely one of the most unique and creative releases of the year

Anonymous is easily one of the best of the year. I wasn't sure what to think of it at first. It was something completely different. Even by Mike Patton's standards. The more I listen to it the more I love it. In fact, I fantasize about them being at Coachella next year quite regularly. Seeing that live would be amazing.

I know! Huge bummer. Well, John Stanier is busy with Battles right now and thier guiatarist, I forget his name, in on tour with his other band U.S.S.A. as well.
Mike Patton is working on a new Fantomas album right now. They have been working on it slowly for a while, but after the Melvins tour finished, they started working hard on the album. I heard Patton wants to get it out by Spring 08.
I would love to hear Tomahwak perform Anonymous at Coachella, but since we aren't going to get that, I will gladly accept Fantomas. To quote Mike Patton, "See you all... Next year? *shrugs shoulders then smiles*"

Yes Tom I was talking about that Selecter. I have too much pressure on vinyl. It's a great album better than celebrate the bullet at least.

And Bug i wasn't trying to be a spelling nazi. I just felt like spelling it correctly. I can't be a spelling nazi because even I make mistakes.

Their guitarists is Duane Denison. And he should be the first person referenced with this band, dammit. Jesus Lizard are the kings, I tells you.

Also, Rue, listen to Baroness. Damn good.
