Kahimi Karie - Good Morning World
is on Friday October 21st at The Chameleon for free.
just put out a new song as part of a split with Samoans:
There were some really good EPs recently from La Boite Diabolique, and Some Skeletons. The Brontide album just came out last month as well.
Still, I think Derby might be winning.... :(
My scan for sarcasm came up negative.....?
Double albums are too long. Triple albums?!
I can feel it.
their "image" can sometimes hide away just how really really good the songs are. Which is a shame.
The guitar player was like "Shit, I think we broke his nose. But it's cool, he's into it."
I fucking love this band.
It's not going to stop me seeing them whenever they come to town, and it's not going to stop me listening to whatever they do next, but there's no way I'm going to put it on anywhere near as many times as I'll put on Waited Up.
that Yeasayer played mostly new songs at their recent Bat for Lashes show at Rock City, and I watched them, and I listened to them play the songs, and I thought "shit!", that being an expression of amazement at the high quality rather than a really pretty rude opinion, and happily my expression of amazement seemed to be echoed and the thoughts of my fellow audience members, and in fact not only their thoughts, but also their words, for example in the toilets immediately afterwards where one man was heard to remark "that was the best fucking support band I've ever seen, and I've been watching gigs since Jimi Hendrix", which is a pretty bold claim but no-one was about to argue with him, so the statement stood, and then some other guy said "what was that band's name?", and so I told him, and he replied "what?", and so I repeated, and then eventually typed it into my phone for him to see, which was trickier than it sounds because "yeasayer" doesn't come up in predictive text mode, but I did it eventually and we all went our separate ways, safe in the knowledge that we'd just seen the best fucking support band in any gig since Jimi Hendrix.
as much as I liked Meet Me In St. Louis, I'm wary of letting notalgia hide everything in its misty haze. I did, and still do, skip quite a few songs now and then on Variations in Swing. Do I remember it getting 8/10 on this site? I think I'd go with that too.
But stop calling them SunRub.
I prefer "S-down"
before commiting suicide, I want it to be known now that they can put my likeness in Guitar Hero. I'll also issue a pre-emptory statement to my grieving widow and friends - everyone, it really doesn't matter.
hasn't already done.
but I didn't, so I might to take a trip down to the capital for this.
's gigs are going to be very cheap to get into and so everyone who likes "that sort of thing" should probably go because I thought that they were very good when I saw them and therefore everyone else should logically think so too.
all of the tricky falsetto vocals. And the stage was all laid out with weird miscellania. And the songs are good. Go and see her.
Even if she did forget the words to Sawdust and Diamonds.
It feels like the dinner I have to finish before I'm allowed to eat the delicious JoFo dessert.
Yoni isn't playing drums at the same time as singing. Because it would be much more fun to watch.
Or, that's what I would be hoping, if I didn't live in the north, miles away from both London and Brighton.
I've already gone and bought tickets! Darn it!
Is that the one with Matt Damon?
Investigation will happen. I've been meaning to investigate her for a while, because I'm a pretty big Neil Gaiman fan.
*that whole connection thar*
but with such a large body of work it's hard to know what to listen to. I have "Little Earthquakes", and I like it a lot. What else would be recommended Amos? Not this, I'm gathering.
Probably because I love them as much as the writer obviously does.
Can't argue with the choices, though I can think of a few more. There's a drum fill in Butcher The Song that I love, and the bit in The Recluse, after asking "Oh Christ, I'm not that desperate?" when he admits: "I am."
The Ugly Organ is best, it's true.
two years ago? But I remembered it. I even thought about it as I was deciding what to play on my iPod in the morning.
If you're doing rockstar agony aunting then I prefer the old Kerrang style of just getting anyone from a metal band in, who'll write ridiculous responses like "JUST TIE HER IN YOUR BASEMENT LIKE A PROPER MAN", or "QUIT YOUR JOB! WRITE RIFFS! THEY WILL NOURISH YOU!".

any of those before this article, so I gave them a shot (generous of me). La Roux is taking this one - the others just ain't my cup of tea with milk and one sugar, all indieish for Florence with "that" guitar tone and a bit nothing-y for Little Boots but OBVIOUSLY, whatever that instrument is, it's grabbing my geeky attention.
I'm sure there's a whole bunch more I could check out, but I very much doubt that any of them can surpass the excitement I've got for the new Bat For Lashes this year.
it's that thet've ruined other music.
another chance to see Melt-Banana, a new PRE album that's as disgusting as the last, with a tour to boot.
I'd also like to see some more British post-hardcore/spazz/whatever/misc.core bands turn up. Bands whose favourite bands are Blood Brothers, Daughters and similar.
A new Daughters album that's as disgusting as the last.
I'd rather he concentrated on the Gorillaz album. Perhaps by ordering Chinese to the studio. Coxon can sort himself out.
I'm not sure I understand what the problem is.
And incidentally, it's my least favourite on the record. Rolo Tomassi have always had this habit of going on a bit with their quieter moments. I got into the band through Film Noir, but the EP it starts is five tracks in twenty-five minutes.
What I want from them is their bread-and-butter, but I want it to flow better. Sometimes they have it, sometimes they don't. Beatrotter, for example, worked really well, while Digital History was just seperate good ideas stapled together. Fofteen carries on that trend (even if its ending is dance-tastic). Conversely, stuff like Abraxas is just what I'm after, and its probably my favourite out of everything they've written now.
I would be very surprised if the best wasn't yet to come from Rolo Tomassi.
like the tracks on their Myspace. Hopefully they'll come to Leeds in the Autumn tour they seem to be planning.
and there was this sweet band I saw a while back that you should totally check out. Not sure what they were called but they had this one great song where the guy was saying something about being stupid and contagious.
After that last tour with Pelican some of my friends were like "they're rubbish" and now I'm not friends with them anymore.
prefers the first two albums. But funnily enough, I reckon that those two songs which were mentioned (plus The Heimlich Maneuver) are the best from the CD. Especially Pioneer To The Falls. Anyone treading proverbial water during that song is (lol opinions) wrong.
I always thought they were better when they were getting all upbeat and rocky, and the first CD took its foot off the gas slightly too often for me. It's not about the soul, it's about the groove.
But Phantasia is really listenable - to the point where I was surprised to hear all this talk of math craziness. I guess I'm just too used to Dillinger Escape Plan, et cetera. But at any rate, it's nice to see them do their thing without flying off into 8/10/15 minute "epics". Four minutes, that's plenty.
They're definitely good live as well. Back over in October, I heard.
that Crystal Castles' record was good, but they were rubbish live. Since I really like the record, but haven't seen them, I'm glad to read this.
Not sure about the "samey" thing, though. I reckon they have a nice mix of more reserved ones, and epileptic strobe light ones. Although they seem to know absolutely nothing about how to put an album together.
They're absolutely brilliant.
War All The Time more than Full Collapse. So there.
Also, I loved Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence as much as everyone else - and to this day, it's best bits still kick my ass. But there was some right filler on there, wasn't there?
all of Latitude's bands are going to play at the same time, across 200 stages!"
Although for some reason I seem more drawn to Sweep the Leg Johnny, rather than all the other bands I haven't heard of who are mentioned in the actual article.
Every time they announce a sprinkle of new bands, there's always ones I want to see. This is great!
