I never really liked Foals to begin with ( I tried, I really did), but this new album is nice. Sorry Rage.
I agree that those are a good albums, but I would be hard pressed to pick a single song that HAD to be in the Top 200.
Agreed, especially re: MJ
I would also add no Uncle Tupelo or Jayhawks, who basically invented the modern notion of Alt-Country? NO Elvis Costello (granted, his work in the 80s wasn't super)
No Crazy Train?
The top 25 is hard to argue with, but they went REALLY light on heavier music. I was getting REALLY worried that there would be no Fugazi, but finally there was Waiting Room at an appropriately high...
And the Aliens in the Outfield EP is the best, if you ask me.
MM's first night in Seattle had Night on the Sun, Cowboy Dan and Spitting Venom. Pretty nice.
9:30 Club is nice. I was in DC for work a few years ago for three nights, and managed to catch two separate shows there - Yo La Tengo one night and Son Volt the other. It's a pretty simple place...
Night on the Sun AND Talking Shit? If they had added Trailer Trash, it would have been my person perfect trifecta.
I just realized I've thought Sheila E. and Sheena Easton were the same person. This was easy, as I never had an occasion to think about them at the same time. Kind of like Bill Paxton and Bill...
So that's a "no" on Battles and Low, then?
Are the Low and Battles posts above just requests? If they have been uploaded, I must be blind...
I'm in a list mood. Here's a list:
Songs on Nevermind, from best to worst:
On A Plain
Come As You Are
But I guess in the universe of people who listen to Spotify, we are all in the same pretty small corner of musical tastes.
I am getting a sense that these playlists are being populated by songs that occupy a fairly small pool, because all of these playlists are way more similar than I would guess our listening habits...
So I was reading this article: http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2015/08/hiroshima-nagasaki-atomic-bomb-anniversary/400448/ when "Atomic Bomb" by William Onyeabor came on on my...
I love the single, too.
Well I play a ton of that stuff for my kids via my account, so it's interesting that it hasn't worked its way in.
Ecstatic Vision Live Dates:
9/9: Center Stage - Atlanta, GA #
9/11: Baltimore Sound Stage - Baltimore, MD #
9/10: The Golden Pony - Harrisonburg, VA
9/12: Webster Hall - New York, NY #
It would be awesome if someone knew where to find an mp3 of the uncensored version of Scott Beach's "Religion & Politics"
I'm glad you asked, Jeff. They are louder, tighter and leaner than their recordings would suggest, and put on an awesome show.
I'm surprised my playlists haven't featured any Frozen or other Disney properties...
I really like that song that released.
All of these look great.
Catharsis, by Institute is a nice slab of depression and self pity wrapped in upbeat minor-key post-punk. I would have preferred vocals that were slightly more engaged, maybe tapping into "anger" as...
Any reviews from those of you that went there?
See, tracks 5-12 were my favorite and it's probably no coincidence that that section contained several sub 2-minute songs. Although, I'm going insane (finish him) and Into the Void (Filler) might be...
Yeah it's pretty crazy. Not all the songs are available on Spotify, though. boo.
I like the new Titus Andronicus way more than I expected to, considering it's an hour and a half and 29 songs. The songs and overall feel aren't nearly as bloated as I had anticipated (for the most...
This is an awesome debate guys. Please keep going.
Also, how is Cymbals Eat Guitars live?
Thoughts on a 29 song, 92 minute album?
Oct 10 looks like the best day of the fest, which is my birthday and would be awesome if we weren't having a baby two days later.
Would love to see Budos Band. Looks like a fun fest.
I love the extended quotes from festival goers in this review: http://www.avclub.com/article/2015-gathering-juggalos-children-wedding-and-jugga-222928
I agree. 9-12 songs 33-45 minutes. Some exceptions.
I like a good 6-7 song 25 minute EP.
I have never heard a 10+ song, sub 20-minute album I didn't like.
The day-by-day lineups actually make the overall lineup seem worse. Not sure how that happened.
If there was a way to copy and paste the text I would, but I don't really want to type out 30 bands and song titles.
I am digging the Discovery weekly feature. 10 of the 30 songs I had heard. The other 10 are on newish records I haven't gotten around to listening to more than once (so I probably technically have...
Speaking of supergroups, "High Enough" by Damn Yankees is a top-notch power ballad.
And a big HELL YES on the Hawkwind/krautrosk-ism of the Ecstatic Vision album! Do they tour much? I would love to see them live.
Edit: instead of adding new one-line posts, I am just going to add...
I heard Westkust on the radio last week and liked it then. Their inclusion in the 2015 playlist has reminded me to listen to them again, and I love it.
AND GODAMNIT Nervosas played in St. Louis 4 days ago!
ANd it's already proving fruitful for me - pleasant discoveries of Nervosas and Nap Eyes.
I was going through airport security when the tickets went on sale and by the time I got it, it was sold out. I am looking for a ticket. Do you have an extra or know anyone else who does? I am...
What a badass setlist, but goddamnit I hate this stretch: Bukowski > This Devil's Workday, which they've done pretty much every show for the past 10 years. I just kills the momentum. Also not a fan...
Awesome. You rule much.
I am totally loving the White Reaper album. High energy, pop hooks, the just-right production value, vocals that don't completely annoy me (say, as Wavves' do).
Yeah, I would put VH into the AC/DC, Aerosmith, GNR category.
I like VH singles, but no whole albums. I can't stand Alex's or Michael Anthony's playing. And I absolutely cannot stand the way the...
