    I've been listening to that Phantom band album, but only on my computer so far - I really like what I've heard so far; makes me anxious to play it in my main system at home.

    How do you like that Silver Sun Pickups album?

    Here are my pictures for those reading impaired...





    and one more that put me over the maximum images allowed..

    The Raveonettes - Beaty Dies (EP)

    Joshua Redman: Compass - Good. Might be one of his best. A little understated, very mature effort. Tenor, Bass(es), Drums (s).

    U2: No Line on the Horizon - I didn't want to buy this, or like it. I couldn't and can't help myself. It's actually good. Not quite great, but very good. Not preachy and didn't have the obligatory real lame track their other albums seem to alway have. What a surprise!

    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Murder Ballads - Recommended to me, highly. Me thinks it was oversold. Moody. Probably will grow on me

    Tom Waits: Blood Money - I always like Waits. Not everybody does. This would fall in that category.

    Frank Zappa: Lumpy Gravy - I was in the mood.

    Freddie Hubbard: Red Clay - Classic.

    (how do you all make those nicely tiled layouts?)

    I just find a wallet sized pic on the web, right click/copy, then bring to the message field and paste...when I feel like it. Sometimes I don't.

    I like it a lot. Yes, there is some relevence to them getting compared to '90s era Smashing Pumkins, but there not as gungy, and they have both female and male lead, a new trend that seemed to have started about 5 years ago, and I think it gives the music more dynamics than it would otherwise, and I'm referring to all the bands that do it. If you like the latest from Black Mountain, then this will be up your alley (I think its better than the last one from Black Mountain and less dense).

    Not much different for me this week. I added Beardfish, Sleeping in Traffic part one and Hem, Rabbit Songs back into rotation this week.

    I'm hoping to find the new Decemberists disk in my mailbox when I get home.

    I love that Sleeping InTraffic Pt 1, FA - it was easily the best prog release of 2007, and in my top 5 overall. They shoulda called last year's Pt2 entry Sleeping In Front of Your Stereo, cuz that's what it did to me.

    I'm still lovin that Elbow album as well. I'll definitely check out their other releases. I have some songs of theirs on comps, but this one was my first CD.

    You guys need to hear White Lies.

    A dark-edged trio hailing from London, White Lies take sonic cues from the likes of Joy Division, the Teardrop Explodes, and Echo & the Bunnymen. Indeed, the three musicians are so committed to the U.K.'s post-punk scene that they signed with Fiction Records, a Polydor imprint best known for its '80s releases by the Cure and the Associates. While attending school in West London, singer/guitarist Harry McVeigh, bassist/lyricist Charles Cave, and drummer/keyboardist Jack Lawrence Brown formed the group in 2004 under the name Fear of Flying. After releasing two neo-Brit-pop singles on the Young and Lost Club label in 2006 — "Routemaster" (produced by Brit-pop mainstay Stephen Street) and "Three's a Crowd" — the trio changed musical directions, adopted a new name, adapted a more somber group persona, and began creating doomy material like the funereal murder ballad "Unfinished Business" and the self-explanatory "Death." Following the release of the Nick Cave-like "Unfinished Business" in April 2008, the trio made its television debut on Later with Jools Holland and began recording a debut album with producers Ed Buller and Max Dingel. "Death" was released as a single in September 2008, coinciding with the trio's first headlining tour of the U.K.


    My favorite disc of the year, so far.

    Whilst I was out at me fave music store last night, they were playing this mesmurizing trance-hop (I guess that's what you'd call it) that sounded like an album a musician might make instead of a DJ.

    However, lemme take you back a bit...about three or four years ago I was perusing the web in search of an old-school style Swedish prog band (is there any other kind?) that was being highly touted over at PE, and the name of that band was Moonsafari, and the album was Doorway To Summer. I eventually found and bought that album (which I like) but my search kept bringing up this other CD called Air:Moon Safari. I looked it up on a whim and it first struck me as techno stuff, with some song called Sexy Boy (I wrote it off then and there).

    Last night I heard this Air album for the first time (only about four songs) but this reminded so much of Royksopp's first disc or even a tad bit like Neon Golden by The Notwist. I feel as though I need to investigate them more.

    I think I've watched the video for Lazy Eye (here's a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-mxBDuRaZ8&NR=1) about 25 times, and I just don't get tired of it. This song is so in line with my tastes, especially the guitar sound and general mid-tempo vibe, that I'm afraid that the rest of the album can't live up to it. Stupid reason not to get the album though. Haven't heard any of The Mountain, but they're now on the list.

    Yeah, that song in particular (Lazy Eye) does have an infectiousness about it, and its very reminiscent of Smashing Pumkins' 1979 from their glorious Mellencollie And The Infinite Sadness album.

    New NY Dolls album...only one listen so far, but I like what I hear. Similar enough to the last one where everything I thought about the last one applies: that it was actually at least as good if not better than the first, original two Dolls albums. Neither one of which I liked as much as the first solo albums by David Johansen, the Heartbreakers, or Sylvain. I just don't think they ever really got it down on wax. This band of course is not the NY Dolls in a sense, yet they make good records & I don't care about that sort of thing.

    New Neko Case--disappointing. Again, only one listen, but I thought this was supposed to be pretty good. Maybe there are some songs here, but I didn't hear 'em.

    The soundtrack to Cadillac Man--unnecessary. I've had this for months & while the note-for-note recreations of Chess singles are well-done, I'm not sure why actually listening to them is any better than just knowing that someone went to the trouble, and that they exist. I see no advantage in not listening to the originals instead.

    Jimmy Blythe--Messin' Around Blues. Somehow I doubt this record sounded like this when it was recorded, but even if it's reprocessed (like a Django Reinhardt/Stephane Grappelli rec I have that's from 1937 but obviously enhanced sometime in the 70s or 80s) it's stiill a good listen.

    Meet Glen Campbell--not all these covers are so great, but I have yet to hear a bad version of the Foo Fighters' Times Like These. I'm not much of a fan of that band, but that song is great.

    The Black Lips--200 Million Thousand. Very, very good, lo-fi garage punk rock. Right up my alley.

    Sam Cooke & the Soul Stirrers--In The Beginning. If I only had to bring ONE album to a padded cell, this week I'd probably choose this one.

    Rock And Roll with Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers. I think this from 1977? This is the first Jonathan album I've heard that measures up to the original Modern Lovers rec from years before with the lineup that turned out to be future all-stars. It's all over the place & very good wherever it goes.

    Howlin' Wolf--live in Germany 1964. Unlike the later 'rock' albums that he & also Muddy Waters did that blew chunks, this is very good.

    And, there's some band that was very Big Star/Sweet/Cheap Trick-ish called Blue Ash that had some sort of overlooked or maybe unreleased rec that was from like 1973 & actually very good. The well is usually dry on these sorts of discoveries, but this one is worth hearing, for sure.

    I don't like others.

    A few years ago, my wife came home from a trip to Iceland, gushing over the great music she had listened to courtesy of a local taxi driver. In particular, she was jazzed about this album: The Ministry of Sound:

    A PM is on the way.

    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    Actually, no...there is a female singing back-up and sharing lead on a few of the songs, but mostly its the dude singing, which upon further review, sounds a tad bit like the dude from Coheed & Cambria, Claudio Sanchez.
