Secured my ticket to Sleater-Kinney in LA on 4/30.
I really like the new Built to Spill. This and the last one, which I liked, too, are both so much better than You In Reverse and Ancient Melodies.
This new one sounds like a lost album that was...
Can someone provide a link to a thread where people are posting good in-depth reviews of Weekend 1? I can't seem to find them.
"You" was #11
1. We're Only Gonna Die
2. Fuck Armageddon... This is Hell
3. You Are
4. Give You Nothing
5. What Can You Do?
6. 21st Century Digital Boy
7. Best For You
8. I Want to Conquer...
I love Courtney and the new album, but I can't be the only that hears a little Sheryl Crow in there.
Spotify is teh best boxed set.
I just turned on the TV and the show Elementary was starting and him some prime product placement using Lampshades on Fire as the song for the intro crime.
I am actually having trouble playing this playlist and I don't see it when I go to your profile.
Thanks! I loved the 2014 Albums playlist, and I had been waiting for someone to do 2015.
Unless you are a masochist, I am not sure there is any reason to go to Penn Station. I think you perhaps mean Grand Central Station.
I think the majority of these songs will translate live really well.
It seems extremely likely, but you never know.
OK, I wanted to come in here and put my thoughts down before I read any reviews which are proliferating this week with the album's proper release. For the record, I am a huge MM fanboy. I was in...
Oh good to know. I haven't peaked in there in a while.
My order of the 5 songs so far released (I am not going to judge the others based on live versions):
The Ground Walks
The Best Room
Lampshades on Fire
Of Course We Know
Jeff the Brotherhood's Black Cherry Pie is a crazy Jethro Tull/Weezer mashup. Which kind of makes sense since it is Ian Anderson playing flute on it...
So here's what I can up with for the NPR RPM Challenge. All recorded in February. I had about 2.5 of these songs "kind of" written before February, which is to say I had fleshed out the chord...
Wilco's Sky Blue Sky is abysmally sequenced. This album has one of my all-time favorite Wilco songs in "Impossible Germany", but I get bored before it's halfway over. Part of it is that the album is...
I think I am keeping with my rule that it is OK and preferable to do away with "filler" songs in this exercise, but I recognize that some people will think I am outright deleting songs I just don't...
But that line is THE ONLY reason it could be a good opener. I think I was pretty clear that I fully understood WHY it was first, I just don't think it's that great of a song, from a musical...
Here's what I came up with. While I appreciate the conceptual and thematic reason for opening with Serve the Servants, in reality, it's a terrible album opener. Musically, it is the most...
I wasn't feeling super revolutionary. Just tweaking it. But my gut said to move it to the back, but that would have just fucked up any other flow I developed. This way I can start on #2 and not have...
I actually think In Utero is sequenced pretty horribly other than having the absolutely correct closer (the only other acceptable alternative, in hindsight, would be I Hate Myself And Want To Die,...
I am going to break my own rules with this next one, Nevermind. As seen with Zep IV, it is tough to mess with iconic albums. Not only because a lot of them are already pretty expertly sequenced, but...
I think if you swapped Stairway with Levee but keep the rest of your tracklist, this yields solid results.
Interesting take on Led Zep 4, although I think When the Levee Breaks is a pretty solid closer.
And whoa John, crazy that you already were doing this
Thanks for all the contributions and thanks for the spotify playlist John
If you are like me, you sometimes listen to an album and for some reason it doesn't really click, even though you realize you like the songs, etc. Then it occurs to you (or maybe it was immediately...
Is Hundred Waters good live?
Everyone that has posted music in this thread should do this: http://rpmchallenge.com/
Some random instrumental demos I recorded in 04-06. Indie pop/rock guitar stuff.
I thought 50% of TKID was really good, the other half was filler-ish. I barely made a minute into the second song on this new one before I was bored to tears.
I just came on here to basically say this. I'ma big ol' Decemberists fan, but this new one does nothing for me.
Jar of Flies (including EP opener Rotten Apple) is a little too Days of the New for me. Even though it came out a few years after Sap, JOF has more of a 80's hair-metal production to it to me. Sap...
I love Sap to this day. Jar of Flies is good, but about 2 songs too long.
Awesome - thanks for the tips. Since the client has not yet confirmed whether our meeting is on the 20th or the 23rd, the whole shebang may get pushed back a few more weeks.
Didn't it also rain in 2013?
holly balls, that lineup is right up my middle aged white guy alley.
spotify playlist yet?
Not following the rules:
When I first sat down to put a list of the best shows I saw this year, I knew I had seen some great shows, but in digging back through the email chains and various...
Going to Philadelphia next month. Other than the obvious historical things to do, can someone give me a rundown of the neighborhoods? When I travel for work, I typically like to go to a restaurant in...
How THE FUCK did I not know that Murder City Devils released a new album this year?
not sure of any of you took advantage of this ridiculousness, but a friend booked a $248 round trip flight to Abu Dhabi (and will take a side trip to Dubai), with a 24 layover in Dublin on his way...
Yeah dig the Budos Band - I have never heard of them before. Seems like they would be devastating live
Look at the statement I was responding to
Dude, people have been using pitchfork as an arbiter of cool or validation or whatever since at least 2002 or so
2014 has dominated, music-wise. seriously.
I certainly hope not
