Find Me On:
This week I learned – Mark Kozelek is hilarious.
*she, not we.
Guys this really isn’t that bad. I thought we was gonna try to turn it into a dance song or something. Instead she did…really…nothing to it. It’s pretty much the same song with her vocals overlaid. In fact, now that I’ve gone through the whole thing, I’ve got to say she really goes all out, which is kind of cool. For the record, this is coming from someone who generally finds her to be insufferable.
Ooh I like this question.
Say what you will about him, but Thom Yorke is always looking ahead and trying to make something interesting. I’d include Nick Cave, Neko Case, and The Roots to any list of highly respected artists who seem to have endless wells of creative ambition (even if they don’t change up their sound a ton, they never come close to “phoning it in”).
Haha this is bad.
Excited that Nancy joined the effort full time. This is awesome. WORK DANCE PARTY!
I’m with Kozelek 100% and would’ve cheered him on if I was there. If you’re at a show for a band like Sun Kil Moon you should know what you’re in for – stripped down, emotional stuff – and act accordingly. It’s not a rock concert, more like a performance, so shut up and listen or just leave.
This is really good, but I’m disappointed that “Million Miles” won’t be on the new album – THAT’S the best song they’ve released since Dear Science. Alas, the magic of modern technology means that I can just burn it into Seed and pretend like it was always meant to be there.
Car listens are legitimately the only way I can truly assess an album. Which is hard for me because I don’t have an aux connection in my car, so it’s been overrun by burned CD’s. Some guy at CVS made fun of me the other day for buying a 50-pack of CD-R’s. Oh well.
El Pintor has been in my CD player for a week, and I’ve been compelled to keep it in there without skipping tracks. That’s usually a good sign.
Saw them in their opening show of this tour and they were super tight and very good. Not revolutionary or anything, but a solid concert.
