Tiger Bear Wolf's selt-titled (and only). So, so, so, so good <3333333
Did they choose that name as a joke ?
MySpace them. They are quite responsive.
they were good...
as good as anything godspeed did
but DO NOT buy 'telegraphs in negative' it is a very very disappointing follow up, all filler and very little actual music
Bloody awful album.
also, got into cat powers old albums
but minus thecat powerness
also, lola versus powerman by the kinks
Circa Survives last album, Cinemechanica "The Martial Arts" and Humanfly "II" although admitedly half of that was becuase it was only released on CD this year, I generally seem to get into buzz bands quite late due to me not wanting to "believe the hype" but this year has shown me that some bands really do deserve all the praise that comes their way.
Fecking brilliant. Even if you discount those songs Kurt Cobain wrote!
I'm expecting great things.
easily the best, thanks to re-issue.
Polvo - Todays Active Lifestyles (love 'em all)
Calla - Strengh in Numbers
Handsome Furs - Plague Park
Rykarda Parasol - Our Hearts First Meet (thanks lyle!)
Songs:Ohio - Magnolia Electric Co
Swan Lake - Beast Moans
Carissa's Wierd - Songs About Leaving/You Should Be Home Here
at least I made one people listen...
Songs:Ohio's one isn't too shabby either. I STILL need to check out Polvo.
With an 'A'
That's my favourite album of all time, although I luckily I have a Mojo reading Dad, who bought it in 2003 and I stole it off him.
My favourite discover of the year has been the soundtrack to Harold and Maude by Cat Stevens. I've never seen the film, but the soundtrack is basically ALL my favourite Cat Stevens songs on one album, with a few (brilliant) songs he recorded just for the film, and you can't get anywhere else. It only got re-released last year, but it's a must-have.
it's lovely. i'd listen to it more if it wasn't for the stupid last track.
Or is it the silence/bell that follows that annoys you?
actually bought it last year, but never really gave it much attention, properly sat down the other week for a listen and was blown away. If i'm ever in a band I want to sound like them : )
but good luck with that!
I bought Fear of a Black Planet this year, so that.
fun hardcore with pop-punky hints from Kingston
I bought it this year but the albums in it have been around ages, its sublime.
Burial's first album has been getting lots of spins recently, I think I got it late last year but have played it more recently.
Deep Chord Presents - Echospace. I have no idea how this one passed me buy until this year.
Iggy Pop - The Idiot. I had heard a few of the tunes before but I got this album at the begining of the year and its damn good. Night Clubbing is my fav on it.
David Bowie - Low. The only album of Bowies I have and I got it this year its wicked. I love the second half and its instrumental freakery. The 1st half has some ace moments too.
* Blue States - Nothing Changes Under The Sun
* Cornelius - The First Question Award
i only listen to albums released (leaked) in the past week. Anything else is old hat
Thomas Truax's 3 albums first come to mind.
Time Without Consequence
Faust - Faust IV
Grizzly Bear - Yellow House
s/t & The Faust Tapes.
what else would you recommend?
Did you get the Faust/Faust So Far 2-for-1? If not, So Far is probably the one that's closest to IV in sound. I've got 71 Minutes and the BBC Sessions, but there seems to be a fair bit of overlap between them.
I love the Faust Tapes so much. I found it in friend's dad's record collection when I was about 15. It really opened my ears to new stuff.
is probably worth quite a bit these days, it is a fantastic album though.
I've been meaning to get 'Faust So Far' for quite some time now, I'll stay on the lookout for the BBC sessions too. cheers!
Originally released in 1981.
Boris - Pink
TTUAIATASAMOT - Liars
The ones that most strikes me at the moment is Jay Reatard - Blood Visions and The Exploding Hearts - Guitar Romantic. Both punky garage rock masterpieces me reckons
They've now been kicked into the long grass.
But at least I gave em a try.
I think that's about it
Pre-Emptive False Rapture LP from last year = absolutely amazing. If you've ever been curious enough to wonder what doom metal, prog rock and disco would sound like mixed together, this is it.
Amazing band, brilliant live as well if you get the chance to see them.
by The National
in the last week, anything else would be too hard to think about.
GAS - Nah und Fern
Terry Riley - A Rainbow in Curved Air
Michio Kurihara - Sunset Notes
Yo La Tengo - I Can Hear The Heart Beating
The Wrens - The Meadowlands
to name a few.
I wish I'd never heard that album so I could listen to it for the first time again. (does that make sense?)
Other than that, a shedload of hip hop, including Madvillainy, Funcrusher Plus, The Cold Vein, The New Danger and Illmatic amongst others.
Throbbing Gristle. fantastique, i must say.
Don't know how I missed this when it came out, absolutely brilliant!
High Contrast - High Society
Kyuss - Blues For The Red Sun
The 3 that I've listened to most, certainly.
A real classic I only got hold of a couple of weeks ago and has been on repeat since.
bright eyes - lifted
Tonight You Are The Special One
The Psychedelic Sounds Of The 13th Floor Elevators.
Awesome, despite the over-use of THAT effect.
Brilliant- much better than his recent acousticy stuff
the glow pt. 2
enjoy eternal bliss
I'm really irritated I missed them.
but damn this is an old thread
with the David Bowie - Low suggestion, bought it a while back but it's just started to click for me.
Circa Survive's Juturna and On Letting Go have been slight revelations too.
Comeback Kid - Broadcasting
Odyshape. Love it.
and it goes well
BOSS I SAY!
mount eerie by the microphones - it's 5 long songs with tons of different good bits in them, where the glow pt. 2 had tons of songs with a couple in.
a nice cave?
a nick cave?
Bought it in Oxfam Music and got arseholed with a load of mates listening to it on the last day of the football season. It's fucking incredible and still sounds fresh now.
the first 4 Elvis Costello albums are pretty much flawless and have not dated a bit
Teenager by The Thrills or Grand Prix by Teenage Fanclub.
just lovely, absolutely lovely <3
or Alive IV: Symphony by Kiss
Pretty freakin outstanding indie-pop.
My local record store has a sub pop 20 campaign going with loads of releases for £7 so i bought The Way Of The Vaselines and Superfuzz Bigmuff, both incredible.
It's 'best album of the 1970s' material.
After years of brushing them off, apparently I really like Sonic Youth. Which is odd, because I've wanted to be Thurston Moore for ages, despite not liking his band before. LOL
due to a thread on here about them,had never heard of them up until that point.
