BSS is best when they get the violins into the flow. Wonder if Jessica Moss is working with them again?
I’m only a fan of one BSS album. They are truely a great band though. Many can tell they put a lot of work into their albums. I wouldn’t have the sightest idea how to mix the sound of 4 guitars. It seeems to flow so easy for the band though.
Was there new material?
I wonder if this thread was around when The Postal Service came out with “Give Up” that we would have the same reaction. Maybe Stereogum would of put up New Postal Service album sure sounds like a Aphex Twin/Björk album. “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight” uses a lot of familiar electro sounds that Aphex Twin used in his music in the 90s and very early portion of the last decade. Then the last 45 seconds of “District” is very (very) similiar to the last portions of Björk’s “Hyper-ballad” I
I’m willing to say that Ben Gibbard was influene by Aphex Twin and Björk. Every musicians has a musical source for their music.It is completely insane to think that “Give Up” was this great original piece of music when it was far from it.
That is when my summer opens up. This is going to be a good festival
A lot of the songs on Eyelid Movies have been for about 6 months of so. Phantograms put them all into a full length and are releasing it next Tuesday. They caught a lot of people’s eyes with their tours with School of Seven Bells and their CMJ set last fall.
While we talk about new albums, go to NPR.org and listen to Phantograms new album “Eyelid Movies”. Good addictive dance music
I’m wondering why Radiohead has made L.A. their second home. During the OK Computer days, I read about the band in and out of L.A.. 13 years later again I’m reading about Radiohead and L.A.
I just heard the new song Good Brothers Paving Company? (Is That the Title?) She is becoming more and more like Sufjan Stevens. This new triple album is going to have it gems, but it is also going to have some songs that you just can’t listen to.
Rae will probably get nominated for next year. His album came out in October and that is way too late for the Grammy committee to hear it. They are still catching up to music from 1997. Rae, Ghostface, Cappadonna, Black Keys, and Miley get put together for a performance next year. Miley is going to branch out this year. Expect her most innovated stuff to be on Pitchfork’s Best Of List this year. Taylor Swift got put on, why not Hannah M.
Vampire Weeekend will probably get nominated for best alternative album too. Or in other words “Solange’s favorite five albums of 2010 catagory”
Im not counting out Vampire Weekend and Miley getting together for next year.
