    Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot was the first and is probably my favorite. It is through and through an album; a whole that is of one drive and design. It is sparse, slow, sad and beautiful. But beautiful as in real and true rather than glossy and pretty. "Someday I Will Treat You Good" is one of the best songs I have ever heard, musically and lyrically (counted separately or together.)
    Also, as I just learned:
    Good Morning Spider is a little more aggressive and more full in sound. It's a very different album than the debut but still very much the work of the same guy. This might be where I'd point newcomers - more remarkable than the newer albums but not as much of the delayed/destructed joy of the first one - but since you know the new one I'm not sure.

    The 2001 album, It's a Wonderful Life is really good but not my favorite. It has a song with Tom Waits and another with Polly Jean Harvey. Also Nina Persson. The guests are mainly because Capitol finally started wondering wtf and tried to get him to be more like a normal band. It's still Sparklehorse, though, no doubt about that.


    I mean, honestly, I have no idea how those first two records were released on Capitol.

    Damn I love this band.
    Thank you very much J. I'm going to check out Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot tomorrow. Also I found this little tidbit from a Sparklehorse fansite: "Before Mark got signed by Capitol, he worked as a chimney-sweep and a house-painter. However after his then manager played what he had recorded to an A&R girl at Capitol, the A&R girl played it to the president of the company, and Sparklehorse was signed without having to play a showcase."

    Classic record deal story.

    I didn't know sparklehorse's music when I went tonight, and I left the concert a fan. They have really good songs, and I really enjoyed the arrangement as well.

    John and Bryan, I want to join in the Sparklehorse party at Coachella. I've only heard one album - "It's a Wonderful Life" - but I'm loving it the more I play it.

    I just saw your board handle in another thread for the first time and got really excited. I find so few Damien Rice fans in my life. It's weird. Welcome, welcome, welcome to the board. My name is Tessa and will be happy to show you around.

    Yeah I've noticed that no one really talks about Damien Rice on the message boards (well besides this one) and I thought that was strange, considering how amazing his music is. But I'm glad there's someone else here that is much of a fan as I am! oh and my name is Marie, nice to meet you

    This looks kind of interesting for the movie people out there:

    John Williams & The Los Angeles Philharmonic
    Monday, March 5, 2007, 8:00 PM
    Walt Disney Concert Hall

    "Artists:
    John Williams, conductor; Martin Scorsese, special guest; Steven Spielberg

    Program:John Williams, the acknowledged master of film music, will present a tribute to Bernard Herrmann, hosted by Martin Scorsese, as well as a look inside the legendary Spielberg/Williams collaboration, hosted by Steven Spielberg. You'll see classic film clips on a big screen and hear some of the most memorable moments in film music, played live by the Philharmonic. The artists will even demonstrate "Techniques of Film Scoring" by running a clip from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade without music, and then, after discussing the process of "spotting," running the scene again, accompanied live by the orchestra."

    Devachan, that event is tempting for Scorsese's presence alone. I'm not too big of a John Williams fan, although he's undeniable done some of the most memorable scores in history.

    Now, if the Hollywood Bowl would hurry the fuck up and book Clint Mansell/Kronos Quartet/Mogwai as part of their film score series, then we'd be in business.

    That John Williams show looks promising. I really wish I was in New York so I could have seen Ennio Morricone's scoring that he did last week. His first performance in America, ever.

    It's weird that there aren't dates announced yet... The SF show is on a Friday, at a smallish club (The Independent), tix are $15. :>

    I'm only thinking of giving Calla a try because it's at a small place near home and it's cheap and won't sell out. Everyone will be down the street at TV on the Radio. Ugh.

    Probably (sold out), I am just not into them and don't like the venue they're playing at (Fillmore).

    There are two venues in SF that are difficult for me to go to (Fillmore and Bimbo's). There's nothing *wrong* with either really, but I end up skipping almost every show at these places. I don't really like venues packed with hundreds of people. Why am I going to Coachella? *heh*
