Swing Lo Magellan for album, though I did really like the new Deerhoof and almost voted for it.
My actual favorite albums are probably Accelerando by Vijay Iyer and Made Possible by the Bad Plus. But those are “jazz,” which, as far as Sgum is concerned, doesn’t exist.
Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes
I love music with a beat!
This band kinda sounds like Animal Collective
Ah, OK. I didn’t think that seemed right. Hope you enjoyed your time here.
Wait, Tom lives in Chicago? Hope to see you around soon, dude!
High five to Amrit for giving the HM to Vijay Iyer’s Accelerando. It’s my most-played album of the year by far. If any of you kids ever think to yourselves something along the lines of “jazz musicians are so out of touch; there hasn’t been a good jazz album in 50 years,” do yourselves a favor and check out Mr. Iyer’s work.
The eff would people downvote someone praising Dr. John? Do you kids know what music is?
I inherited my generation’s vague disdain for disco as a teen, but learned how awesome it truly can be when I got a gig playing drums in a disco cover band (non-ironic — everyone else was more than twice my age). I always loved playing, and listening to, Bad Girls, Hot Stuff, Heaven Knows and Last Dance. The beats, melodies, and of course, Mrs. Summer’s singing are undeniable. RIP.
It reminds me of the medleys in the big Vegas-style production shows I played while working on a cruise ship. Besides having that touch of Brian Wilson’s genius, of course.
