    Fixated on the Beach Boys disc heavily this week. What a fantastic production.

    There's about 3 songs on the Air album that kill me.

    New-To-Me stuff:

    Jay Farrar, Live In Seattle- very good live set from a recent tour stop. Set list leans heavily on songs from Terroir Blues (not that that's a bad thing, IMO). The performance seems a bit detached, though.

    Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros, Streetcore- late coming to this one, but well worth the wait, and the purchase. Just fantastic songs and performances.

    Handsome Family, Live At Schuba's Tavern- They do an amazing job at translating their "sound" into a live milieu. May be my favorite group right now. O, BTW, the parental advisory on the cover is warranted. Rennie Sparks is kinda toilet-tongued for easily offended folks. And she comes off at least as crazy as her husband.

    Modest Mouse, Good News For Bad Mofos, or whatever it's called- on 180g vinyl. Interesting stuff here, seems more fleshed out than my recollection of M&A, and whatever else I've heard from them. Brock's voice is a unique instrument that meshes well with the music.

    Neutral Milk Hotel, On Avery Island- more vinyl. And it sounds pretty good, for being recorded on a no-track tape deck in a port-o-let. Great tunes.

    I never got around to pulling the trigger on this one but it has been on my wishlist for years now. What do you think of it? More specifically, how does it compare to In The Aeroplane Over The Sea? I've read good and bad comments but have yet to hear it for myself, other than a song or two here and there.

    Porcupine Tree - Lightbulb Sun - prog, pop, whatever, this is an excellent album.

    Ted Nugent - Craveman - Teds 2002 studio album. Lets just say this: he can cuss, profane, hoot, toot, snort, insult, and generally blast nonsense better than most. The music is, well, okay, but I think he needs to let his ego chill and let someone else handle lead vocals like Meatloaf did on the classic Free for All album.

    IQ - Subterenea - this is one of my favorite neo prog bands and albums. I hear the new IQ album is their best ever. If so, it must be something else.

    Sparks - Lil Bethoven - well, this is a real real lousy album. So is Plagiarism.

    Lynyrd Skynyrd - Gimmie back my Bullets - songs about women, whiskey, killin, guns, etc.

    Marillion - The Thieving Magpie - a 2 cd live set with Mr. Fish on lead vocals. Excellent. Man, that was a great band back then.

    Thin Lizzy - Bad Reputation - incredible album. Not a bad toon on it.

    Kansas - Point of Know Return - remaster. Superb album from my favorite band.

    Also watched some Jadis dvd, Arena dvd, Ozzy dvd (I tell you what that cat Zaak Wylde is pretty good on guitar), and some Oingo Boingo dvd. Ozzy is a trip, completely.

    I really need to listen to it some more to form an educated opinion. First impressions were that, musically, it is clearly in the same vein as Aeroplane- a younger brother; maybe a bit less polished. Sonically, even more lo-fi than Aeroplane, and that's getting pretty lo-fi, IMO. Recorded on a 4-track, IIRC. Mangum's vocals get so strident occasionally that it hurts, but not much more so than on Aeroplane, to my ears.

    Thanks. OK, so I need this album. I'm just not sure whether I need it on vinyl. Aeroplane is sooo heavily compressed on CD. Hmmm, well, LP is usually a few pesos cheaper so I guess there's my answer.

    NP: Lucinda Williams - Car Wheels...

    I find that it works both ways, and randomly- the new Modest Mouse was $13.99 on vinyl, $10.99 on CD.

    How do you like these as a whole? I've only heard a few songs from each and all were pretty good. AAS in particular reminded me of Death Cab For Cutie but it's sometimes difficult to get a feel without hearing the whole album.

    I don't know why I'm even asking. I've got so much music lying around that I need to pay more attention to. I guess I can't help myself

    the Constantines album i picked up a few days before seeing them open for someone... and i can't even remember who now. anyway, they are FABULOUS live. the album is very good. there are a few tracks that jumped out and grabbed me right away, and now that i've had it for a while i enjoy all of it.

    Know By Heart is an amazing record. they may sound like Deathcab because Ben Gibbard sang one of the songs you heard? hehe. he's on one track. they're sort of a cross between Califone and Deathcab for me. another wonderful live band. i've seen them twice. once headlining a show with The Album Leaf supporting, and once as main support for Pinback. do i need to talk about how great those nights were?

    also, they discovered Explosions in the Sky. i think allmusic.com may have that story on the EITS bio.

    which reminds me... does anyone know which track(s) on Know By Heart feature Munaf Rayani (of EITS)?

    EDIT: the Explosions in the Sky story from allmusic.com:
    This quartet of Texas kids was signed for its first release on Temporary Residence Limited after half a listen to their demo, which was submitted by the American Analog Set with a brief note saying "This totally f****** destroys."

    UK Parlophone no doubt. What a great album....well, except for that silly Ringo song. Sounds pretty damn fine too. I think mine is a 70s reissue but still very nice.

    Hey, those are some nice looking comps. If I didn't have just about everything on them I'd probably ask for one or two. Speaking of PJ Harvey (since she is on one of them) I saw her last night on the Letterman Show and she looked to be having a fun time. They did The Letter which I guess is the single from the new album and they were freakin loud! It's just a stripped down thing with real simple chords, but still fun. Not one of her finest songs but I enjoyed it. Bill Murray was on before her being his normal silly and often hysterical self, wearing a clown shirt and shorts and these bright yellow gloves. And when PJ came out after him, she had on a short dress and pink high heels, looking pretty glamorous, and wearing those same yellow gloves that she had gotten from Bill. Pretty funny. Did the whole song just about with those big yellow gloves wrapped around the mic

    Dagnabit, Troy, what is that Ridgway thing...never mind, looked it up, I see that he has a whole slew of stuff over at cdbaby, half of them sold out (probably never to return)...

    Whut have I been listening to? I don't know, a bunch of stuff, let's see what I can remember:

    Thomas Dolby
    Curve
    Sibelius
    Buckethead
    Maquiladora
    Controlled Bleeding
    Funkstorung
    Lali Puna
    In The Nursery
    Joe Walsh
    The new Hilary Hahn, Helene Grimaud SACDs.
    Moby
    The The (did anyone else notice how he sounds like Ian Anderson?)
    Garden of Shadows
    Wall of Voodoo
    Ani Difranco
    Magnetic Fields
    Divine Comedy

    Watched that BHP DVD -- weird! Not sure if it's worth owning, but definitely worth watching once.

    Hey Dave G -- did you know there's a couple of Easter Eggs on that Oingo Boingo DVD? The video for "Insanity" is apparently a "must-see".

    Daveydot -- I'd like to second the motion that you slow those down, I can't read some of them, neither...

    Oh, and I actually listened to some vinyl this weekend!:

    Mike Oldfield
    Shriekback
    Talking Heads
    Godley & Creme
    Colourfield
    Eschew fascism.
    Truth Will Out.

    Vinyl:

    Kansas - s/t
    Beach Boys - Holland. Included the 7" 33 1/3. Aside from Sail On Sailor this pretty much sucked.
    David Crosby - If I Could Only Remember My Name
    Green On Red - No Free Lunch. I thought I would give this another try. Still didn't make it for me.
    Chris Isaak - Wicked Game 12" 45 ep. Has only four songs. Or is it three?. I can't remember. Fairly decent rockabilly stuff though.

    CD:

    Los Lobos - The Ride
    Gov't Mule - Live At The Roseland Ballroom
    Neil Young - Hawks and Doves
    Kansas - Masque
    Steely Dan - Aja
    Pink Floyd - Animals
    AC/DC - Let There Be Rock
    Earth Wind and Fire - Greatest Hits. The 1998 release.
    Carbon Leaf - Meander

    Return To Forever - s/t and Light As A Feather and Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy and Where Have I Known You Before and Romantic Warrior.

    Weather Report - Heavy Weather

    Miles Davis - Birth Of The Cool and Bag's Groove and Walkin' and Filles de Kilimanjaro and Agharta

    Jethro Tull - Rock Island and Catfish Rising and the Stormwatch remaster.

    Thanks for the word on P.J. The album seems to be getting pretty tepid reviews, at least the few I've come across. Wait a minute...just checked Metacritic and its got an 83 score, which is a lot higher that it was (low 70s I think) last time I checked. Things are looking up for young Polly. I assume you're planning on getting it. Lemme know what you think when you do

    I see you listened to Chairs Missing...you're taste is improving!

    Thanks. Two more to add to my ever-growing wishlist. Why is it no matter how many albums I buy the list never gets smaller?

    I don't recall the names of the songs offhand but I know they were from the above mentioned albums (some were on comps, the others happened to be playing the last couple of times I wandered into my favorite local indie store).

    NP: Chisel - Set You Free (because Ex-Lion Tamer's comp reminded me I haven't listened to this in ages --- good stuff and better than the Ted Leo solo/Pharmacists albums IMO)

    I got a small stack of new discs to listen to:

    KVLR aka. Kevlar (I guess). Indie rock band out of Sveden. Has some mighty fine moments that would surely make the grade of even the hippest of the indiehipsterelitistsnobs sulking around.

    Procol Harum-The Well's On Fire. Seen the name bandied about from time to time and to the best of my knowledge never heard them until I got this from the library. Need a couple of more spins but I don't think this is the music for me.

    Paul Oakenfold-Oslo. Very, very trancy. (well duh! what did I expect? sheesh.) Not really digging this to much either. *sigh*

    A bunch of the same ol' same ol'. One notable exception: David Bowie's Heathens disc. My next door neighbor burned one for me, and I liked it better than I had expected. No killer track, but lots of interesting sounds. Hangs together pretty well as an album. Sounds better at night, for some reason.

    It was one of those strange conversations like what JC was talking about last week. This neighbor was talking about how much he likes this recent Bowie album, and I say, "Yeah, I kinda lost interest in him after the 70s." And he looks at me like I have two heads. Come to find out, he was unaware of David Bowie having a career prior to "Let's Dance." This is a 38-year-old suburban white guy I'm talking about. Very odd.

    So we start talking some more about music, and he's talking about Cake, Big Head Todd, and a few other things...so I bring up Wilco. He's never heard of them. Again, this is the Chicago suburbs we're talking about here. He has no clue who I'm talking about. The very next day, there's a 5-column-wide photo of them on the front page of the Tribune's Arts section.

    So now I don't know whether to burn him an Alladin Sane disc, or a Wilco sampler. I guess I better do both.
