mmm.. instead of watching election results roll in last night bought all the radiohead b-sides that weren't already in my collection. i suspect a deep dive back into the catalog is going to dominate my music listening for a while.

so stereogum, rollingstone, billboard, cos, and like every site on the internet all have a link to listen to a new radiohead song from some voice memo site called vocaroo? and a dead soundcloud link? both dead now, so obviously not sanctioned. i love radiohead and i want to hear the song. i don't want to buy their super deluxe version. what happened to the band who said pay what you want? I'll happily pay them the going rate for a song, hell maybe even slightly more since it's radiohead, but this exclusive deluxe stuff in the music world needs to end. fuck exclusive streams, and fuck deluxe editions, if you have outtakes you want to share with the world release a fucking ep that i can pay you for.

i'm sure there is more to this than i understand, but if that's the tree and that's the Tomei's stoop, how is that tree on his property and not theirs?

i guess i'm old. i started college in 1999 (don't remember exactly when i finished). i bought lots of cds in college. not to say i didn't occasionally download some stuff, but for the most part i paid for music. i digitized my catalog around 2006 or 7. now, when i use spotify, it's to check out something new that i'm on the fence about. then i buy if i like, don't if not. i still pay for the vast majority of the music i listen to. i'm not interested in using spotify in the car, i use a usb plugged straight into the deck. i just don't have good experiences streaming over my phone. nothing worse than being into a song and it stutters and loads.... I have about the best internet i can get at home, but when i stream, there are still more interruptions than i can stomach. if they take away some music (especially new releases) from the free option it neuters the service for my uses.

bi-polar bear would make my top 10, probably in the top half.

12 Bar Blues is one of my all time favorite overlooked albums. if you haven't heard it, it's worth a listen. also after having listened to the first couple albums a million times as a teen in the 90's, i'm as likely now to put on Shangri-La Dee Da as any of the others. Some good stuff there.

Brent is no longer in Menomena. Wasn't on their last album. He is in Ramona Falls. Just FYI.

Agreed, though disc 3 of Vol. 8 is magnificent. i admit i don't have time for 6 (or 18!!) discs of multiple takes of this material but that 18th disc looks enticing. I'm still waiting for an installment of live never-ending-tour material circa the early 2000's.

so i keep seeing clips of this on the news and whatnot. it was clearly professionally filmed. anybody know if it is going to air someplace or if we're gonna get to see any of it?

it's a pretty good performance, but it would be really great with a better vocal performance. not super familiar with Foxygen, so i don't know if the singer is capable of better...

probably more because of the pointy polygon bosom that "lanky boy" has. I'd be equally happy either way, but unless that guy is wearing both a shirt-dress AND falsies, i think it's a lady...

I know I may be in the minority, but i just never understood how Arthur is often regarded as the best of the Kinks. whenever i hear that said, i go back and listen again. i always think, yeah, better than i remember, but no way the best Kinks album. l listen to everything from Kinda Kinks through Muswell quite often and for me Kinda and Kontroversy handily beat out Face to Face and Arthur. The expanded versions of Kinda and Kontroversy do benefit quite a bit from the added singles/EP tracks tacked on.

it was kind of a strange read. what with all the "it must be crumby to have people always talk about you being a girl, so I'll just do that for a while." on the other hand, I'm not sure it's wrong to talk about a musician as physically attractive or beautiful. i think david bowie and trent reznor are physically attractive and beautiful, and i feel the same about annie clark. i think attractiveness and sexuality are often part of the allure of an artist. if annie were a man, i'd say, "wow, this guy makes great music. i've never heard anyone do things with a guitar like that." if she were a really good looking and graceful man i'd say something closer to "he's not of this world," like this author (or their friend) did. i think that's ok.

reminds me a bit of the aphex twin remix of bowie/glass heroes. I'd love to hear more tracks from the era with the vox pulled way out front like this. wonderful.

October 9, 2013 on David Bowie – “Sound And Vision 2013″ fan edits of LITS las vegas (fan footage) and "the gift (pro shot footage, soundboard audio). both are really good. this is a great release. free downloads, don't know if they have physical copies left to purchase (not for profit). the NIN community is so awesome.

not what I was hoping for from these guys. loved their previous album and eps. guess I'll withhold full judgement until full album is out, but...

nice to see the rehearsal footage with frank singing on key. the grammy performance was tough to listen to.
