recommend me some songs to wallow
did they do 'popular mechanics for lovers'? GOD THAT'S SO GOOD
'Delta' is from their first album, Handsome Western States, which is quite different to their later stuff so I don't know if you'd like it, but it's one of my favourite albums ever. The main guy from Beulah, Miles Kurosky, released his debut solo album last year, which is in a similar vein to what he was doing on the later Beulah albums. That's called The Desert of Shallow Effects.
Hustle and Flow (one of the best scenes, any movie, ever)
Red House Painters - Drop
His voice crushes all hope.
pisses on it
sets it on fire
and chokes on its ashes
Do you watch the show Sons Of Anarchy?
They used the song Alesund (sun kil moon) in one of the scenes last year. A really moving scene, it worked perfectly.
I know it's Over
worked for me
are just me preaching him.
It's Sumner's 'Blood On The Tracks'
what you're talking about re Dylan refs but yeah, Technique is probably one of the ten greatest albums of all time.
same as 'Blood in the Tracks' was for Dylan i.e. they were both going through painful end to a relationship at the time and that was reflected in the music.
Sorry pal, hope you cheer up sooner rather than later...
just recently got 'Hats.' What a good lp that is. Good call, such a sad piece.
A Walk Across The Rooftops is its (equally stunning) predecessor - see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RrcvttiQ_wI for evidence
As I've said in another thread, I think Wild Beasts new album (also great) is really influenced by them - minimal, restrained and yes, sad.
and these guys kind of flirt with it, lots of emotion and pull and restraint. This isn't the kind of music I normally attach to, but they've got just enough of my qualifiers to reel me in, the songs kind of do the rest.
Will check out that other album (Wild Beasts too) of theirs at some point, still getting down with Hats atm.
as my wallow song.
Tindersticks - Raindrops or A Night In
Walker Brothers - Love Her
American Music Club - Why Won't You Stay
Nick Cave - Far From Me or Love Letter
Richard Hawley - Cole's Corner
Stina Nordenstam - Now That You Are Leaving
Al Green - How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?
Candi Staton - Too Hurt to Cry
Otis Redding - I've Been Loving You Too Long
Temptations - Just My Imagination
It's not quite as cathartic as Kozolek, but I put this EP on sometimes when love goes wrong.
Anyway, not what you want to hear, but it's not the end of the world.
that album is pretty much all about getting shat on by the fairer sex - guitars have never sounded better mind...
Heartbreaker was like a road-map out of misery for me.
Their first album was a dayglo tweebo wankfest, but the second Noah and the Whale album is pretty bleak and entirely about having a broken heart. Sufficiently depressing?
(I'd be playing this, myself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPlQpGeTbIE Reverse psychology.)
Frightened Rabbit - The Midnight Organ Fight
Noah and the Whale - The First Days Of Spring
And Weezer - Pinkerton, obviously.
Some good suggestions there.
Listen to Fevers and Mirrors by Bright Eyes on repeat.
''Does he kiss your eyelids in the morning when you start to raise your head...''
A bit more detail: It wasn't an existing relationship that broke-up. Its more a classic unrequited thing, and a spoiled friendship. Lovely.
then she probably wasn't that good a friend anyway tbh.
...Oh there'll be time... to just cry. I wonder why it didn't work out...
that kind of thing can really cut you up. xx
