Just kidding about the Sting album.


Been picking this on up in the store, looking at it, puzzling over whether i'd be into it or not, putting it back, thinking about it, reading the crazy stories about it (particularly the one about the lead singer being nailed into a coffin) and musing some more.

What's the deal with it worpswede? White noise, drone metal? Worth picking up?

I don't know much about Sunn 0))) other than the "doom metal" tag that gets tossed around when referring to them. "Doom metal" doesn't really peak my interest, but strangely, "experimental ambient metal" does, which is why I'm asking other GloNo'ers for their thoughts about "Black One" if they've heard it. I never hear the story about the lead singer getting nailed inside a coffin, but that sound exactly like something a 39 year old needs to have in their collection.

strange that you should mention sun 0)))... was talking to a friend outside of the belle&sebastian show last night and we got to talking about metal and he said he was about to pick up the sun 0))) album... may have to check 'em out myself... B&S and the new pornos were absolutely amazing btw... saw 'em in a great venue w/great sound and both bands appeared to be having a good time...

Been a good year for music so far, especially from the ladies of rock.

- Jenny Lewis, "Rabbit Fur Coat" - Great singer/songwriter, period.

- Cat Power, "The Greatest" - I'm not a Cat Power fan. "Moon Pix," while featuring some impressive arrangements and production values, sounds like a bunch of drony, pointless, drony droning to me. Certain artists just demand a little discipline, is the way I see it. Here, the Cat has it in droves. Tight songs, fantastic arrangements, timeless melodies, some decent lyrics.

- Beth Orton, "Comfort of Strangers" - Not "Central Reservation" but lovely.

Extract from allmusic.com.

"For the megalithic closer, "Báthory Erzsébet" the lead singer was supposedly locked inside a coffin, microphone and all, so as to inspire a suitably suffocating feeling of horror — proving that extreme sounds sometimes truly do demand extreme measures.)"

And yes Worpswede, it sounds like something everyone needs in their collection!

I can't get into the new Belle and Sebastian... it's pretty but vapid. I'll probably end up changing my mind on that though. My two most listened to albums this year have been Broken Social Scene and Wolf Parade, although they're both '05 records (although BSS was released in January over here).

I'm really looking forward to the new Calexico record, especially after downloading the free acoustic version of All Systems Red contained in the e-card on their official site.

Just got Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3's Tick...Tick...Tick this morning. So far it's not grabbing me quite as much as Here Come the Miracles or Static Transmission, but if you like his stuff, it's worth it for "The Deep End", "Your Secret", and "No Tomorrow".

Not sure precisely when it came out, but I've just now got Destroyer - Your Blues. I love this. Atmospheric in spots, pop-rocky in other spots, Bejar's awesomely weird voice everywhere....aside from a couple of borderline ballady songs, I can't find flaws in this. And the ballady songs are growing on me.

What I love more is the other disc I just found, Tilly and the Wall - Wild Like Children. It's cutesy to the hilt but I can't stop listening to it, aside from when I play the Destroyer.

These mark the return of Soulseek for me. Man, I missed it.
