For me, Liars and Low. I also was like this with Les Savy Fav for a while. L is for Lazy I guess.
can't be arsed to either buy all the records, or sit at the computer and listen to them on the internet (probably my LEAST favourite pastime) but I'd probably love 'em.
Flaming Lips (I love Yoshimi but not properly listened to much else)
Built To Spill
I've listened to these guys a lot but it's never clicked, and I know it's just a case of giving them time but I never really seem to have any to spare.
I downloaded It's A Wonderful Life after Linkous died, but only listened partway through, and by listened, I mean the kind of listening you do when you're reading the news and playing Ski Free. Which is, barely.
I'm still making my attempt at getting into Tom Waits, too.
I brought good morning spider in fopp for like 3 quid like 2 years ago and still havn't listened to it properly.
but it's also quite nice to have a couple of these unexplored things in the bank ready to withdraw in emergencies
In general terms I always want to listen to more than I'm capable of. DiS isn't helping to prevent that either..
might make a date with some of these over the bank holiday.
put caribou first
The Magnetic Fields
Low (apart from the album I have)
And loads of classic techno like:
Anthony 'Shake' Shakir
Never mind tons of jazz, blues and soul. TOO MUCH MUSIC, NOT ENOUGH TIME
I listen to Reinbert de Leeuw recording of him all the time. Make time!
On the other hand I love the fact that there is so much music for me to discover
Just get the Flip Your Wig or New Day Rising CDs and play loudly :)
At The Drive-In
and a load of others who escape me right now
But the reason for that is more that their albums are never at a decent price, rather than laziness
and the birthday party. I know i'd be into it, it's just there's so much that it's trcicky to know where to start...
I've never really heard the Melvins, apart from the odd track. I know I'd love em, and people have repeatedly told me where to start but their discography's still huge and I still haven't gotten round to it.
sorry, just trying to do a bit of promotion :)
anyway, errm, i guess ellen and the escapades?
the ruby suns
yeah, all of that.
Nick Cave and the bad seeds
I'm gonna add Seasick Steve- saw him last year and really liked him, but never listened to anything afterwards.
Recommend not being lazy and listening to High Places oldfame!
Guided by Voices
Explosions in the Sky
Sigur Ros (properly)
Yo La Tengo (properly)
I think for us music addicts, it's not a matter of laziness that there are probably many, many acts we'd like but never get into. In the internet age, it is easy to seek out acts and we are thus bombarding ourselves with music - in other words, emotional and artful content. After a while, it gets to be too much. And after all, the more acts we get into, the less we can get in-depth and on intimate terms with songs or records. Back when the only way of listening to a whole album meant buying the product with your hard earned money, there was more of a period where you listened to something and got into it. Now, if we don't like it immediately, we simply go onto the next artist, like we would a piece of candy in a bag of endless varieties.
Anyway, artists I think I'd love -
Shearwater, Galaxie 500, Ernesto Tomasini, Broken Bells, Gorillaz, The Byrds ( I like 'em, but I haven't listened to their actual records, only individual songs). Tons more.
Queens Of The Stone Age
Black Dice/Gang Gang Dance
M83 (other than Before the Dawn...that album is sick)
I'm sure they're probably great but, without having ever really listened to them, I find something about them a bit annoying.
