XTC - Skylarking
an Autumn playlist via itunes today at some point.Those dark nights walking home I shall have Suede 'Dog Man Star' playing and me weeping
reasons: actually does talk about season changes. after Summers Cauldron we get Grass: 'the things we used to do on grass', and then into 'The Meeting Place' which starts out with the ticking clock percussion thing and themes of getting older etc, then later 'Ballad For A Rainy Day', '1000 Umbrellas', 'Season Cycle', 'Dying', 'Sacrificial Bonfire'....
basically i won this thread.
thinking this morning that Burial is probably going to get even heavier than usual rotation for me through the awful long, dark and cold London nights.
how in the summer I struggle when going through my Ipod what to listen to.I dont have any emotion in the summer.But come the dark nights, drizzle, snow turning to slush, all wrapped up etc. The choice is easier and I can listen to the Tinderstick 'Curtains' to my hearts content.
and i expect the The National album will sound even better now...
that Burial album's been put back on the shelf for the entire summer but I just know that I'll be listening to it all winter. It really clicked for me last year when I was out walking to...er...Tesco and the sky was so fucking apocalyptic, everything was completely enveloped in darkness. It was pretty heavy.
similar to that:
Current 93: Black Ships Ate The Sky
care to describe what it sounds like? I'm intrigued...
talks/sings about the apocalypse in weird vaguely christian terms mixing in satanism and paganism and anarchism and bits of William Blake over odd post-punk influenced dark folk music.
'night bus' innit
I'm just remembering how good it is.
The guy is a genuis.
Oh my days.
you hurt me
and all the others as well!!!
Love it all! I'm sure I heard of a new album forthcoming no? Or MAHobbes going on about a new album? Or maybe that was wishful listening.
Yer, haven't heard any of it though
Also: Ghost Hardware EP which i haven't got, and Unite on the Soul Jazz box of dub.
is incredible. It's like a refinement of all the elements that made the album amazing (THOSE drums & the crackle) but with a more minimal vibe and a slight techno edge.
I remember being annoyed that the album was released in the summer as it's listening potential was limited by the good wheather and up beat atmosphere but as it starts to get dark & cold the record really comes into its own.
i know it's XTC and everything but somehow i doubt that lyric's about picnicking.
Pretty Girls Make Graves- The New Romance
Interpol- Turn On The Bright Lights
Alligator by The National sounds much better on a crisp winter morning than it does in summer. Same with Ys by Joanna Newsom.
Nick Drake is basically the best autumn music though.
seems quite Autumnal. Even the cover itself for that matter
Is the ultimate album for daytime Autumn listening.
a summer album?
Maybe it's the album cover but i just see Autumnal colours when I hear it. Go and listen to Old Gold Shoe, Nashville Parent and Book I Haven't Read. Are they really summer songs? Even Up With People is pretty melancholy.
I think it's autumny too.
was an amazing autumn album.
american football - s/t
jawbreaker - 24 hour revenge therapy
but they sound good all year round.
it's practically in sepia, it's so autumny.
