    The new Deerhunter is pretty great. I haven't really dug anything they've done since Reveille, but I have found the newest record to be extra nice. Even if it sounds nothing like Reveille.
    Deerhoof. And it really is good.

    I've listen to the new deefhoof vs evil a couple times and I like it so much that im going to check their older stuff especially milk man album.

    Is it me or does the singer for deefhoof remind you of the singer for shonen knife?

    The new Smith Westerns is quite good, but not as good as their first album. The better recording quality is really nice, but the tunes are not as strong. Still, if you liked the first album, you will be into this.

    EDIT: Just finished the album, and it totally sticks the landing, for me at least. I have a feeling mileage will vary on this but for me it was a crazy mind-expanding psychelic journey, the kind of album drugs were made for.

    You have definitely succeeded in getting me pumped for this. However, check this out: http://solidlittlerockjams.blogspot....ily-thing.html

    It's possible they're just fucking with us and the leak is a noise deconstruction of the actual album. Take it for what it's worth. It's a good read regardless.

    I Was a King - Old Friends is pretty enjoyable. It clocks in at just under 30 minutes and the titular song evokes a ton of nostalgia. Ya'll should check it out.

    This is exactly what I thought when I heard a few of their tracks. I tried to like it, but then it just started to piss me off. Maybe I'll give it one more spin.

    this is the most accurate review of this dog with fleas so far. fucking Melloy...will you finish up with your mid-life crisis already and get back to the rock. seriously, i really do like his voice, but....if only the rest of the album sounded like "This Is Why We Fight." that's a really good song.

    i'm so glad i listened to this before buying a ticket to their show here. pass.

    Quote Originally Posted by Resident Advisor
    In late February, the Cologne label Magazine will release an album by Drums Off Chaos, a group headed by former Can drummer Jaki Liebezeit.

    Thanks to a handful of classic albums released throughout the '70s, Can was one of the most essential bands in German psychedelic rock, commonly known as kraut rock, or kosmische. The band broke up in 1979, and all of the members got involved in new projects, with Liebezeit forming the percussion ensemble Drums Off Chaos with three other musicians from Cologne. Liebezeit's hypnotic and often tribal style of drumming was a cornerstone of Can's signature sound, especially on classic tunes like "Halleluwah" and "Future Days," and Drums Off Chaos gave him a platform to continue his experiments with rhythm. The band used mostly custom-made drums, and chose to focus on live performance rather than records. Aside from some compilation appearances and a rare mail-order CD from 1985, their upcoming album marks the first time their music has been recorded.

    The self-titled LP features all four of the band's core members, plus Jens-Uwe Beyer, a regular of Kompakt's Pop Ambient series who sometime goes by the pseudonym Popnoname. Though he comes from a different generation, Beyer is in some ways a perfect fit for Drums Off Chaos; like most of the group's core members, he hails from Cologne, and recently co-founded the heavily kosmiche-inspired ensemble Cologne Tape. His presence lends the album a modern electronic sound to complement the otherwise all-percussive compositions.

    Drums Off Chaos's self-titled debut will be the first full-length on Magazine, which launched last spring and has put out two 12-inches since. The album will be available digitally as well as on vinyl and CD.

    Tracklist
    01. First Half
    02. 4 Of 7
    03. Second Half
    04. Even S

    Magazine will release Magazine 3 on February 28th, 2011.
    Sounds promising.

    No, it isn't. The Smith Westerns, that is. It sounds better in terms of recording quality, but in my opinion the songs aren't as strong. It is still really good though.

    First Listen Live: Iron & Wine Debuts "Kiss Each Other Clean"
    Iron & Wine is the stage name of singer-songwriter Samuel Beam, a former film professor who has released mesmerizing indie-folk albums and EPs to critical acclaim since 2002. Tonight, Beam joins us with a full band in The Greene Space to perform Iron & Wine's upcoming album, "Kiss Each Other Clean," in its entirety for NPR Music's First Listen series. It will be the first time fans can hear the album before its release on January 25.

    the new Deerhoof (Deerhoof vs Evil) is really growing on me. it's certainly more staid then their previous recordings. but, the more mellow jams demonstrate an interesting level of growth that, for me, doesn't take away from the weird, spasticness that i love so much about Deerhoof. Satomi's singing is much more melodic this time around, which makes me wonder if they'll gain a wider audience now (since her singing style/voice always seems to be the thing that people so frequently hate on about Deerhoof). And, her bass playing just keeps on getting better (keep in mind that she joined the band a week after coming over from Tokyo in '95...with ZERO musical experience whatsoever).

    and, in this day and age of albums being brickwalled to high heaven, i have to give Greg (Saunier - drums) massive props for his fine job of mixing and mastering the album. finally, it's nice to see that moving to Polyvinyl hasn't forced them to give up their DIY ways as revealed in the the liner notes, which read "All songs played and recorded by Deerhoof in Deerhoof's practice room and Ed's basement."

    this one's worth a listen.

    Loving the Yuck album. I've been a fan since the first time I saw them live and the debut has lived up to my high expectations. Their influences are pretty obvious (Lush, Pixies, Dinosaur Jr and Teenage Fanclub) but they just write such great tunes.

    Another one that has caught my ear is the debut from Anna Calvi. Sounds like PJ Harvey scoring a Tarantino movie.

    Just listened to the Decemberists' new one, and didn't have anywhere near the negative reaction that some of y'all have had to it. Yes, it's another head scratcher that makes you wonder exactly what Colin is trying to do to the band's future. But I've never been super into them in the first place, nor have I ever taken them too seriously, so my expectations probably weren't as high as some going into this record.

    it's because i am tired of Colin Meloy's adventures in mediocrity....get over it already, dude.

    but, yes, the twang of this LP does not appeal to me, personally. like i said..."Fight" is a wonderful track, though.

    To each his own, I guess. i was actually fully prepared to not even listen to it because of the negative reactions here, but i kept reading good things everywhere else so i grabbed it and totally love it. Weird.

    I don't hate it at all. I thought it was a decent, minor album from a band that was once really interesting to me.
