    I don't know that I posted about it here, but even if I did it deserves to be posted again. This new site, The Talkhouse, features writing and reviews from musicians, and so far it's been great. In particular note for Tom is the fact that Amy Klein has done a few great, thoughtful pieces.

    This album is absolutely incredible. I'm not sure if it falls under afrobeat or not, but it's some of the most spacious, hypnotic world music I've ever heard. It's really hard to believe this came out in 1999 and not decades earlier.

    I saw Tony Allen for free in Chicago a few years back and it was pretty incredible. You're in for a good show. For some reason, I never really dug into his recorded output though. I'll add him to the overwhelming heap.

    I live somewhat in the past because the only tv I watch live is news, all the rest is usually vis a via the DVR. So old news from last night, did anyone catch the promo for the show "Super Fun Night" where they used the Get Lucky tune for the music? Those guys are marketing geniuses imo ... cr****

    I will admit I am not a good judge of which band is "bigger" than another band. But I was quite surprised to see this:

    The last two Hold Steady albums have been dreadful. Actually I'd say they've all been fairly poor since Separation Sunday. The Gaslight Anthem have only been getting better over that time.

    Also the Gaslight Anthem have 445k listeners on Last.fm. The Hold Steady have 386k.

    Spotify shows near 3.7M listeners for "45" compared to 362k for "Stuck Between Stations".

    I am not sure when it happened either but, yeah, it makes a lot of sense.


    Also Craig shows up at a lot of NYC shows. He was at that Our Band Could Be Your Life show (playing the policeman for Titus' take on the Replacements), he has shown up with the Mountain Goats at least once, etc. Him playing isn't a big deal.

    The Gaslight album got really huge. They had quite a bit of radio play in L.A. for a while.

    but i totally disagree about The Hold Steady's quality - i LOVE Stay Positive, it's such a great album, especially "Sequestered In Memphis." I thought Heaven is Whenever was pretty good too.

    I'm not very familiar with The Hold Steady, but it seemed like "Stay Positive" was a love letter to Youth of Today and other NYHC. Was this just me? Cause to me that record seemed a lot better with all of that in mind.

    This. Stay Positive was dismissed much too quickly.

    Edit: Wierd side note, i just listened to 45 on YouTube and the ad had a Hold Steady song backing it. Oh the irony!

    when I google search the naked and famous, the little band bio that google shows describes them as a "New Zealand post-punk revival band from Auckland".

    listening to them, is this really what post-punk revival means? maybe New Zealand had a unique kind of post-punk that is being revived here...

    New Zealand post-punk, in general, was better than UK or US post-punk. One man's opinion, but their post punk took the Joy Division sound to extremes or invented lo-fi guitar pop. So unless the Naked and Famous are an awesome act repping the Clean, the Chills, This Kind of Punishment, the Dead C or their ilk, they can fuck themselves in their ignorant asses.

    to be fair, it's google that calls them that. I'm not sure whether the band make such a claim.

    It says that on Wikipedia as well, along with synthpop and indie.

    Ahh, well, at least initially New Wave was considered in the same vein as Post-Punk, as that Simon Reynolds book, Rip it Up and Start Again, readily illustrates. But yeah, there's no blaming New Zealand for them, as their independent music scene is much better than that.

    To the point that i personally distinguish New Wave and synthpop as 2 different things, which started when someone described Joe Jackson's "I'm The Man" as new wave.

    I actually like The Naked and The Famous, though this resembles post punk in no way, shape, nor form (though it's a fucking catchy song)


    It's HIGHLY possible they have earlier work that we haven't been exposed to that is "post punk revival" though, and they ended up totally changing their sound.

    I mean, if you look at Killing Joke's wikipedia, the first thing it says is "Killing Joke are an English post-punk band formed in October 1978 in Notting Hill, London, England," and they have albums that are as far removed from post punk as this (and it's shown as such in the wiki genre colum: Post-punk, gothic rock, electronic, industrial, industrial rock,industrial metal).

    I agree. Tom and I had a discussion about defining new wave a few months ago.

    The post punk label is difficult because it overlaps the period of "new wave" as distinct from the largely synth-based stuff that followed it (which people also call "new wave" as well). I mean, I say Elvis Costello and Talking Heads are new wave, and Wire and Gang of Four are post punk, and that distinction sounds right, but I have no idea why.

    Axiom 1: The Velvet Underground developed two distinct sounds :
    1. Motown influenced pop
    2. Dissonant atonal noise.

    Axiom 2: Early NYC punk and the music associated with it developed in 3 distinct sounds:
    1. The accessibly modern themes of Harry Toledo, Blondie, Shirts, probably beginning with Talking Heads '77
    2. The garage and hardcore sounds of the Ramons, Heartbreakers etc.
    3. The grandiose experimentalism of Television, Patti Smith etc.

    Axiom 3: Post-Punk, New Wave, and No Wave are all valid and distinguishable terms, each taking a greater influence from one of earlier sounds than the others.

    I not know, I took a shot

    I've not ever considered myself much a fan of their stuff, but they've squandered any good will I may have had for them with a year's worth of childish behavior, first with their label and then with their fans. The label thing wasn't punk rock; it was just stupid. What's even more stupid is just not showing up to a show that your fans paid for and that you booked. Or cancelling a tour because you want to record another album. Pricks.

    I'm so used to listening to the Beach Boys from Pet Sounds onward, and it's been so entertaining and joyful listening to Endless Summer tonight, as inspired by "Help Me, Rhonda" playing over the closing credits of Mud, which people should watch.

    Waaaaaaaaa. It's about time that musicians remember that music isn't about the fans. Thank Gods. Cool, you like seeing a good show. That' superb of you. Does it mean that you matter? What positive legacy are you leaving behind? So what, a bunch of fans went home and had to smoke their pot watching tv. Boohoo man. They may write an album that will change the world instead of playing for your crybaby ass. It's much more likely that they'll create a real steamer of an album, but that's beside the point.

    This whole, "We wouldn't be shit without the fans," is total artistic submission. They wouldn't be rich and doing good blow without the fans. They'd have to work, like the fans, and create more opportunity for fans to become someone without the fans. Do you see what I'm getting at here? Your war cry is sounding a lot like, "Fuck Artists! I want a show regardless!," when, if you were any kind of fan of art itself, you would realize the potential of the move... but what do I know, right?
