'Monolith' by Io on Arghh! Records.
I will listen later !
A gig in Paris
same French label as Motehrtrucker
don't know where the peniche alterna is as it's a place that play essentially hardcore bands as far as I know...
"What came next, however, was so spectacular and powerful it could have soundtracked the moon’s conversion from a glowing, white golf ball into a fearsome, reddish planet. io’s brand of post-rock manages to meld Explosions in the Sky’s melodic, delicate guitars with Isis’ metal sensibility resulting in an explosive, spine-tingling set which blew the crowd away".
Bees made honey in the lions skull
lovely title, that.
Fantastic album. Their best since Earth 2?
kong - snake magnet
Earth. Brilliant. and dead good at the Underworld the other night.
Also, The Magnetic Fields' "Distortion".
is the times new viking one. so it's that ....
Uhm, I listened to Mr Traynor's link. Kinda IsisPelican-ish and really how can you tell those bands apart? I dunno, not my cuppa really.
I still gotta get TNV and Magnetic Field's cos I've really liked the tracks I've heard.
It'd be unfair to choose between them.
if the two of us end up in the same old folks home gumming our peas together. haha!!
Has really grown on me unexpectedly. Also agree with the above that Earth album is ace
very good album !
and it certainly aint great.
It's ok, good even. But hella overrated
everyone ought to check this out..
has a vibe similar (in parts) to The Field album, otherwise just really excellent.
also, Autistici - Volume Objects..
anyone who liked Set Fire To Flames will love it
Los Campesinos - Now Hold On, Youngster...
That's all there is to it. The album has me floored. I'd never listened before listening to the album, and I haven't really been able to stop listening. At all.
there are at least ten potential number one hits on this record. i counted.
vote for atlas sound here...addictive album
I like it more than Elephant Eyelash
I love the intro synth madness.
that's not new?
The Magnetic Fields.
And with any luck my second will be Elbow next month.
for Stephen after all his recent messing around. Such a great sound.
or times new viking
for me is In loving memory of Let's Wrestle....
Either The Mae Shi or Magnetic Fields.
The Seldom Seen Kid
the best album of the year for me so far
can only see it getting better and better too
r.e.m's accelerate was a pleasant suprise aswell although not sure it'll make my end of year list
can't wait to hear it either way
and I got the import for my brother for his birthday (after burning myself a copy of course!)
but the Los Campesinos, Why?, REM and Mountain Goats albums have all been really good.
followed by Charlottefield - what are friends for, Boris - smile and the new Half Man Half Biscuit when it eventually comes out and get named.
Honorary mentions to Earth and Black Mountain.
Beach House - Devotion
but someone has to say this one:
Foals - Antidotes
it is good. But it in no way lives up to the hype. And it sounds increasingly like a poor mans Q And Not U.
But a poor mans Q And Not U is still damn good.
Sun Kil Moon - April
Mystery Jets - 21
Tokyo Police Club - Elephant Shell
Somebody Still Loves You, Boris Yeltsin - Pershing
Fleet Foxes - Ragged Wood
and the new REM seems to be fairly great too. happy days.
on 4th listen the new rem is astonishingly great.
(and The Seldom Seen Kid).
I haven't yet released an LP in 2008. It will be great when I do, though.
