Whatcha Been Listenin' To?
« on: April 22, 2004, 11:39:28 am »

Hey,

I've been going through an insatiable appetite for new (or atleast new to me) music recently, as well as some of my fav's i haven't listened to in awhile. This is what i've been diggin' on recently, how 'bout you?

Pavement - Slanted & Enchanted (luxe & redux version)- Classic.
Saturday Looks Good To Me - All Your Summer Songs (lo fi 60's era pop)
Sufjan Stevens - Michigan, The Great Lakes State (a beautiful record about my home state - great DIY recording too!)
The New Pornographers - Electric Version (great songs & performances)
Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand (new wave art punk for 2004)

anyways, i'm interested to see what y'all are listening to. Also, glad to see the new (and faster!) rec pit finally!

Well my usual musical taste falls into the Pavement, Archers of Loaf, Polvo, GBV, Cursive, Superchunk, Smiths, etc

But lately I have been checking out some different styles.  I have been enjoying the new Thrice, the new Yellowcard, and Taking Back Sunday.  The Thrice album has really grown on me.  I really think the songs work very well togther and it moves the album nicely.  Plus I like loud drums and its got loud drums.

My tastes tend to run towards progressive rock (especially older bands) and heavy metal (yeah, I like both Yes and Slayer).  I can almost always enjoy a band that writes great melodies though, and lately I've discovered how absolutely amazing the Flaming Lips are.  Anything from '95-present is unreal.  Kind of ironic too, since Tarbox is about 10 minutes from me.

which pedro did you get, i think he just put out a new one....not sure though

control is really good in a lazy sorta way

what do you think of the new vanderslice record
it's sort of a departure from his earlier work in many ways
he's exploring new vocal meters and melodies that i never would have guessed him to do.

i think the writing is brilliant, once again.

i talk to john on and off (probably once every three months or so).  the thing that i always say to him (looking for a comment) is, "john, you tell your stories so well, i can never figure out if it's a story, or if it really happened to you"

to date, he has only said, "hahahahahaha, j.hall you rule"

i don't think he'll ever give me a straight answer.  although, i have gotten confirmation about a few tunes in particular that are true to his life.

anyway, i'm rambling.

suggested song to give you goosebumps:
peter gabriel, the flood

Control is the Pedro I got coming.

I have Vanderslice's last 2 records,both are very good.
Cellar door is growing on me,I like his approach and he has a off skew way of songwriting.
