What album do I buy? Keep in mind I have all the huge ones, most likely.
I've just finished listening to it for the gazillionth time, one of my albums of the year.
Try 'Eat Drugs' by Bad Dudes. Also one of my albums of the year. I started a thread about them earlier on. Go listen.
the seccond and final collection of Skull Disco 12"s it's full of huge bass, hypnotic grooves and doomy soundscapes. Then a second CD of amazing amazing remixes.
Just buy it, do yourself a favour.
Some stuff I've enjoyed over christmas which is the shit:
Silkworm - Italian Platinum (Kinda like Built To Spill meets midwestern emo meets Shellac. Great)
Portishead - Third (This album is completely brilliant. Completely)
Magic Lantern - High Beams (fuzz laden drone meets wandering pyschedelia in brilliant style)
Shit and Shine - Cherry (Crazed noise rock led by stoner riffs, percussion, samples, and completely off the wall sounding tracks)
Wooden Shjips - S/T (woozy pyschedelia from San Fran with comedy reverb vocals)
I like Silkworm and Portishead, not the rest.
Best Silkworm Album? Allmusic claims Firewater.
It's called "Italian Platinum". The opener sounds like this:
There's some nice piano stuff and some bar room sounding bits with some girl vocals. It's just a really ace album. If firewater is the best, I'll be heading there next, but this is a rather kickass album,
But 20 bucks says I'll walk in to buy Silkworm, and the store will have a random copy of like, the High and Dry single by Radiohead, so I won't buy anything I intended. ugh my impulse buying and love of Radiohead.
It's a bunch of 70's Japanese hippies out Black Sabbathing Black Sabbath
seeing as it's only the mp3 version.
How well do you guys know Soulwax? Is any of their stuff good? I love the remixes I've heard.
Their 2 Many DJs stuff is definitely worth a listen (especially As Heard on Radio Soulwax Part 2)
kinda like a remix of their last album..
The Dodos album Visiter is well worth a purchase.
Not to complicate it further but...
Best releases in IDM, all I have is Aphex Twins' The Richard D. James album
I care because you do and the first Selected Ambient Works.
Do Boards of Canada count? If so, Music Has the Right to Children by them.
I picked up Third by Portishead and a Dubstep Compilation
from Rinse FM...
thats not a bad CD a decent overview of whats going on at the moment anyway with a nice history lession in there too.
Science Faction - Dubstep
I don't know that one
DJ Clever is one of those mad skratching lots aint he? I sware I saw him on a documentry on scratching a while ago.
Dubstep was playing on the record store speakers, I asked what it is and the guy said "oh, this is a good comp, but it's on because I worked through this, here's my favorite dubstep, right here" and handed it to me. God I want a job there.
enjoy it dude.
I would love to work in a record shop, but they just don't have many around these parts anymore.
Close, I think there are some in the city, but I rarely venture. This place doesn't really say records, but I think the employees select stock. One in the city apparently sells indie 7", etc. I need to get down there, I never have.
