    Yeah, I understand sampling is one thing, but this is a little more then just "sampling"

    One month late, but I vote "refreshing hard rock." IMO, they're a band that's a lot easier to appreciate live. The singer has some crazy pipes and a mesmorizing stage presence; totally confident and free during the songs, but there's a 90s-grunge coyness/shyness in the way she interacts with the audience. Also completely devoid of irony, which I guess is refreshing.

    I found this acoustic video of theirs a year ago and I think it captures their essence a lot better than the music videos and recorded stuff:

    I haven't listened to it front to back yet, but most of the songs have popped up on shuffle. At this point in my still new familiarity with the band, it seems "Painbirds" might be one of their best songs, if not their best. The instrumentation on that track is just splendid, I love it.

    Do you ever have one of those realization moments, where it's not until you hear a band cover another band's song that suddenly you realize it might be your favorite song of theirs? I had this experience recently when I heard a band cover Dinosaur Jr.'s "In a Jar" on the radio.

    Didn't know where to post this, but listening to Codeine - The White Birch, and it is really great! I hear a lot of where Mogwai got some of their sound in it. Found out about it because Ben Gibbard said its the reason he is the musician he is today.

    Yeah I got that too! there was some recent reissue with those albums and the barely real EP. I was reading that they already ended their reunion...kind of a bummer.

    I went to their SF show. It was tremendously fragile but also really great. Both albums and the EP are essential.

    Did they close with "Broken-Hearted Wine" at that show as well, John? It summed everything up so perfectly.

    YOU GUYS. I listened to Black One by Sunn on 45 today rather than 33. Holy crap. It loses some of the ominous nature, but it becomes a really incredible Sabbath-y record. Bathory in particular becomes something I want to hear live at some point again. The difference is huge.

    Also, if I could ever write a song as purely great as the Ramones I'd be happy with my life.

    Well, in 1994 nobody whatsoever had heard Spiderland.

    But I've not listened to Codeine in nigh on 6 years, so it barely even registers. I'll get back to you.

    Codeine are in no way a Slint ripoff band. That's a lazy comparison based on the fact they both play slow, talk-sing, and use dynamics to make their songs interesting. They pioneered a sound and musical style.

    To be clear, it is certainly an obvious point of comparison. I just disagree with your perception that they ripped off Slint wholesale or something. They didn't. They just sound similar.

    Alright. It's still good, it just sounded so similar that it was a bit of a distraction.

    I do agree they are similar, but I don't think that is such a bad thing. I think I liked White Birch better but haven't listened to Spiderland in a while.

    I don't think that similarities are a bad thing either; I like both bands a lot. I just took exception to Chris essentially saying Codeine bit their whole sound off Spiderland when, in actuality, both bands kind of progressed concurrently and were doing their own thing (albeit with similar sonic hallmarks.)

    I listened to a few songs from White Birch, and in Codeine's defense it was with shitty headphones from my phone while driving. And my reaction was definitely a kneejerk one, and I'm usually ok with bands sounding like other bands, but this was way more similar than most.

    Yes. Also, Frigid Stars came out before Spiderland, so you could say Slint was ripping off Codeine. But really, the fact is there were a bunch of bands in the slowcore/sadcore "genre" at the time all doing similar things. Also see the first couple Low albums. I Could Live In Hope and Long Division are both very similar in style/sound too.

    Yeah, but here's the thing: while good, none of those other bands reached the heights of Spiderland. If you argue that point, you are just wrong. Go listen to Good Morning, Captain and realize the error of your ways.
