    I'm in the same boat; Patrick, what are a handful of the less-well-known releases which you would consider essential listens?

    I'm listening to Scraping Foetus off the Wheel's Nail thanks to this.

    Also want to check out Bongwater.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Yeah, I didn't think a lot of those would show up on Spotify. A bunch are just barely on ?. There's a ton of stuff I'm unfamiliar with too, which is why I find it exciting.

    That Soft Boys album is a fucking classic, really great rock songs, although it's fairly well known.
    Soft Boys - "Old Pervert"

    The Units album has some really fun, interesting synth pop songs, I don't know if it's top 100 of the 80s material, but it's worth a listen. The title track and "Warm Moving Bodies" are pretty classic.
    The Units - "Digital Stimulation"

    That Nurse With Wound album really is one of his best but it's completely different from most of his stuff in that it's kind of straight drone.

    The Monochrome Set have some amazing post punk songs, some of them used to be in Adam & The Ants, quirky, catchy songs with extraordinarily clever lyrics.
    The Monochrome Set - The Monochrome Set (I Presume) (seriously, read along and be amazed at how he twists such cumbersome phrases into unforgettable melodies, and then there's the drums, and oh yeah, the Spanish guitar breakdown)

    Fabio Frizzi is a great giallo soundtrack composer on par with Goblin.

    Polyrock is really tight, terse jittery post punk pop stuff, but I've mostly listened to their second album, Changing Hearts, in the past. So I'll post the title track from that one because it's really good.
    Polyrock - "Changing Hearts"

    Antena is like Young Marble Giants doing samba. It's really low key but really fucking satisfying.
    Antena - Camino Del Sol

    Lustmord is dark ambient. If you like that stuff, you've probably already heard him.

    I only know one Marc & The Mambas track, but it's great. Marc Almond doing theatrical (of course) gothy organ shit.
    Marc & The Mambas - "Black Heart"

    Foetus has been one of my favorite artists for over a decade. He applies a cinematic scope, sound collage studio trickery, and the full range of 20th century music from big band on out into bracing, pummeling industrial songs with lyrics that twist common cliches into darkly funny rants. If I was bombing people in Vietnam a la Apocalypse Now, this would be my Flight Of The Valkyries.
    Scraping Foetus Off The Wheel - "Anything (Viva!)"

    Going further back, Einsturzende Neubauten is pretty much responsible for every industrial band that formed in their wake. Notorious for using power tools and scrap metal as instruments, what's really surprising about them is how tuneful their chaos could be.
    Einsturzende Neubauten - "Kollaps"

    Roedelius was part of Cluster and Cluster was one of the greatest electronic acts of all time, and his solo stuff is usually pretty good too.

    ? did this, it was a year long project, and votes were collected for a given year (say, 1970) in a week. i.e. Each week people named their favorite albums of a certain year. It was a pretty massive undertaking though. Basically one guy compiled all the votes and made collages for each year, with the top % in the "best of [year]" and then all the rest in "[year] the ones that didn't make the cut"

    Edit: Sorry I'm exhausted and I know this is confusing.

    I mean, that's how it would turn out, but it'd be fun as hell to see the 70s and 80s (hell, even 90s) lists from people like you, Tom, Heidi and others who don't conform to the narrow view of so many board shits. I'd LOVE to see Zack's bizarro take on the decades.

    Then you're suggesting not so a much poll-vote that ranks things (which would admittedly be boring) but some sort of collaborative contribution of board members describing what and why their choices are?

    7/30: The Chemical Brothers @ The Armory
    7/31: Worker/Parasite @ Underground SF
    8/7-8/9: Outside Lands Music Festival
    8/8: Holly Herndon @ The Chapel
    8/11: Screaming Females @ The Rickshaw Stop
    8/14: John Roberts, Laurel Halo @ f8
    8/20: Sales @ The Rickshaw Stop
    8/22-23: FYF Fest
    8/29: King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard @ The Rickshaw Stop

    This could be fun; maybe an album or two per year for a given decade?

    Exactly. My mind immediately jumps to a list of 100 albums per decade because that's how most people approach it, but I kind of like the idea of a certain amount of albums per year. I'll make a thread.

    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.

    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!
