FEELING THE FEELING

Comments from crania americana

I can dig some Trans because it's wild (some gems in there, too), but Re-ac-tor and Hawks and Doves are two of the most uninspired things Neil ever put out.

I mean that with the greatest respect. 1969-1979 Neil is the GOAT.

Anyone who's seen whatever the fuck Human Highway is supposed to be can confirm that Neil, indeed, has been this way.

Does this mean the version with the better mix will be up on datpiff at some point?

They just don't seem that threatening. It's not that they're beloved Sesame Street denizens, but rather because they use the British spelling of neighborhood.

Damn, "Highway Anxiety" gave me instant goosebumps.

I'm well aware it's actually a sad, shitty situation. At least Matador should be able to absorb this hit better than a smaller indie could. Regardless, I take no pleasure in the situation. And for the record, I'm confident that Gerard Cosloy is not actually an eight foot tall lizard alien bent on enslaving the human race.

Wait just a minute –– perhaps that wasn't as straightforward as you think. What if I told you that all of the Rick Ocasek drama was merely a ruse, an inside job if you will. I smell a false flag operation cooked up by the reptilian scumbags running Matador. WAKE UP SHEEPLE

That's a great track. His stuff is always interesting and often excellent.

I'm thinking this should have been the album cover: http://pixel.nymag.com/imgs/daily/following/2016/05/05/jmascis_volksw.nocrop.w536.h2147483647.2x.jpg

I want that in my ears so badly. Anyone know if they're doing a digital release for this or is it exclusively on vinyl?

Yeah KV's "Box of Rain" was solid, and my only gripe with "Attics" is that Olsen's inexplicably singing backup. It's still solid, though. The Walkman's take on "Ripple" was probably the biggest letdown for me.

May 21, 2016 on Watch The National Talk, Perform Grateful Dead On CBS This Morning
Kind of a trip to see Will Oldham on CBS –– incredible times, these. I'm mostly digging the comp. Early highlights for me are SM & the Jicks and Hiss Golden Messenger, though maybe that's my love for Europe '72 talking. Early lowlights? Definitely whatever the hell Mumford and Sons did to "Friend of the Devil." Fuck that shit. Really, most of the American Beauty songs here are kind of a letdown, though that just goes to show how unfuckwithable many of those original takes remain.

The extent of the Nickelback hate has led most of their fans to react not by reconsidering their choices, but by getting their hackles up and mounting increasingly strident defenses of the band's worth. It seems that an unintended consequence of internet meme culture and its tendency to go hard after seemingly easy targets –– see also Guy Fieri, Comic Sans, etc. –– might be fun and create a nice inside joke canon for a handful of folks, but it's more than a little counterproductive. This is all away of saying that I like the culture war thesis here.

Should have brought out erstwhile alt-rock titans Fuzzbubble and done the beloved "All About the Benjamins" rock remix.

It's tough because there's so much Fahey stuff and it pretty much runs the gambit –– easy to get lost in it. For some time I knew Fahey, Jim O'Rouke's "Bad Timing," and that was pretty much all I needed. But in the last few years –– in addition to William Tyler –– I've become pretty partial to Nathan Salsburg, Glenn Jones, Daniel Bachman, and Chuck Johnson. But it's getting to the point where there are more good guitar soli records out there than I can keep track of. This is not a bad thing.

May 19, 2016 on William Tyler – “Sunken Garden”
Another great track. I can't overstate how excited I am about this. And a hot tip for solo guitar fans –– I was reading up on the recent spate of VDSQ releases and found out about an album that Sarah Louise put out last year called 'Field Guide' on Scissor Tail Records. Only available in digital or cassette, but it's some really wonderful 12-string stuff, highly recommended.

Oh shit, I meant "Follow You Down" –– sorry, got my classic Gin Blossoms tracks a little confused. Though to be fair, you could just as easily confuse "Till I Hear it From You" for "Found Out About You."
