My sister has got me listening to a new band called "Highly Suspect". Their debut album is pretty smokin' and I've played it quite a few times over the past few days.

"Mister Asylum"

The title track. Definitely a rockin' tune part of a great album.

Friend gave me this (among a bunch of other little trinkets) when I went to his wedding. Anime music from this period is kind of funny, especially in mecha shows. All the singing is mainly male voices, lots of orchestration, but I guess that's just what was popular soundtrack-wise for shows in general back then.

New David Bowie, Blackstar, came out yesterday. It's weird. Weird and wild. I love it. Like nothing he's ever done before.

I really like it, a few of the tracks have a bit of a 90s King Crimson vibe to them which I'm massively into. I've only had the chance to listen to it once but I did really enjoy it.

So, At the Drive-In are reuniting and planning on releasing new music this year, which makes me feel very happy about the world and my existence, and they're doing it at a time when I probably most respect and enjoy their music. Never thought I'd see the damn day.
Their last album before breaking up was very important to me growing up(bought it on cd at Circuit City, haha), but there was that bit of sadness associated with it knowing that I didn't get into the band until after they had a big messy break up, so I hope this year and the music they come out with can nullify those bad vibes. They're also playing a pretty decent venue here in Chicago, which has the potential to be one of the more epic show I'll ever attend.

:boingy:

Now Thursday just have to get back together, and the post hardcore world will be at peace.
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!

Radiohead hopefully drops their album any second now - Animal Collective has me excited, after Floridada became one of my favourite songs of 2015 - and Clarence Clarities Dark-Web-makes-TripHop-catches-a-virus-and-decides-to-release-it is running in endless loops right now.

Now, if anybody could just please leak mathemagics, I'm content.

Yea, this is looking to be a pretty good year in music, but then again basically every year is a good year in music as long as you keep an open mind. New Kanye and AC coming out about ten days apart is a real treat. Been loving Kanye's Real Friends, and Yeezus is in my top five records of the last five years, so I'm super excited.

Also, in pretty cool news, Rostam left Vampire Weekend and dropped a real good(and super chilllllll) solo track, EOS. Any fans of his work with Discovery on LP should seriously check it out.

Viet Cong self-titled (2015)

This record is ruling my life right now. Between the hypnotic grooves of 'Bunker Buster', the echoing cascading guitars of 'Continental Shelf' and the downbeat, off-kilter melodies in 'Silhouettes'; just a solid album from start to finish. Sleek, sharp Joy Divisionesque post-punk pushed through a shoegazing, almost psychedelic lens, soaked in a metric fuckton of reverb. Pretty wicked shit, man.

Favourite track: Continental Shelf

That Cult Leader record is awesome and a prime example of that dark/chaotic hardcore sound that Deathwish does so well. Reminds me of Tragedy with a bit of grind thrown in for good measure.

I can see Tragedy in it, a smudge of Disembodied in its tone too.

Been a while since I made a post about record purchases, but I think that's mainly that I haven't made any sort of purchase in bulk in a while. I've been stopping in local music stores and occasionally picking up what looks like a good deal, and it's always best to be able to examine the media in person before plunking down money for it (recently got a Traveling Wilbury's LP from the place around the corner), but sometimes you just have to turn to the internet to find stuff that's not going to be easy to find.

One such album is Cream's "Disraeli Gears".

Image

1977, RSO reissue, RS-1-3010 of Cream's second album from 1967. Disraeli Gears has some of Cream's most recognizable songs, like "Strange Brew" and "Sunshine of Your Love", which were both later released as singles. This album was actually recorded in the U.S. at Atlantic. Supposedly, the iconic riff from Sunshine of Your Love was inspired by Jimi Hendrix when Jack Bruce, Cream's bassist/lead vocals, went and saw one of his concerts. When you think about it, it makes sense.

All the records were graded at near mint and they looked pretty flawless. The E-bay seller that I bought these from included the original inner sleeve along with high quality protective sleeves to put the vinyl in, and this one was one of the albums with the origial inner sleeve.

Image

Next up was the Rolling Stones' "Let it Bleed". I was talking with my friend Rob who writes for an audio publication about the Stones not that long ago and he was telling me about some remasters that had come out and we had talked a little bit about this album. He's a much bigger fan than me but I'm familiar with this album and saw it on the seller's inventory for a really good price so decided to take it off his hands. A 1969 U.S. release by London Records NPS-4, not the first pressing NPS-4 but pressed by Bestway Products Inc. This also included the original inner sleeve, which was pink in this version with the notable THIS RECORD SHOULD BE PLAYED LOUD liner notes. There was some water damage on the jacket but the actual album looked brand new.

Image

Then we have Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane 1973 vinyl-only release called "Monk/Trane". There were 2 U.S. pressings in 1973 and I believe this was the first of the two, by Milestone Records, M-47011. It's a small release of a 2 LP compilation that's mostly just the Monk and Coltrane releases from Jazzland and Riverside's previous releases of these 1957 recordings. These didn't appear to come with original inner sleeves, I couldn't find any pictures of them if they existed but the ones that were in the gatefold looked too new. The gatefold itself was kind of arranged so that it was viewed up and down instead of opened like a book, with liner notes inside.

Image

Now here's the interesting thing, if you look at the liner notes, they're for a completely different album by Wes Montegomery called "Wes and Friends", also by Milestone Records. The real liner notes are supposed to look like this and this. (Interestingly, while I was looking for images of the actual liner notes, I wandered onto this weird Japanese website of pictures of old stuff, in this instance a rusty hook, that happened to have the liner notes in the background). I'm not sure if the seller realized the album was a misprint, it wasn't mentioned at all in the listing.

Image

I made one more purchase from this seller because I asked Amy to look through the inventory to see if there was anything she wanted, free shipping etc. So she picked Talking Heads' 1977 debut album "77". This was actually a pretty decent deal, first pressing SR 6036 by Sire Records at the Capitol Records pressing plant. There was a second pressing in 1977 without the "Made in the U.S.A." on the labels and the "Sire" name under the logo instead of beside it. This album never appeared on vinyl again until a 2009 re-release by Record Store Day. The most notable song is probably "Psycho Killer", which I think was later released as a single, but the album itself wasn't a big hit. Maybe the staggered rhythm and David Byrne's demented sounding singing was too artsy for 1977.

I'm not a big Talking Heads fan but right away it struck me how amazing the fidelity of this recording was. The record sounded awesome with some pretty high production going into it. The sound and music was all pretty much new wave pop but the quality of it all was immediately noticeable, the vinyl itself looked like it was never played before.

So, I really wanted to support Clarence Clarity, since I really fell in love with his massive album. Check him out, if you're into glitchy-pop. So I bought the Vinyl (I know, hipster alert).
It's really beautiful, too... The record itself is gold!
I also bought the vinyl of Radiohead's In Rainbows, as this album comforted and accompanied me for almost a decade now... I mean, I already had the CD-Version... but I really wanted a bigger version of the beautiful cover art... and hoped for a huge booklet, which of course was not included... Speaking of which, I greatly warmed up to the King of Limbs by now, so I'm really looking forward to their next record, which should hopefully drop soon.
I also bought Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion. I was really pumped for the psychedelic effect the cover induces, only to find out, it doesn't work at all, lol. Maybe I've looked at it too many times by now :D

Speaking of AnCo, Painting With their new album leaked... And while I certainly like it more than the restless, incoherent, feral, blaring Centipede Hz, it's a far cry from their older stuff. Still, there's some standout stuff... Maybe I just need to listen to it more, idk. Now my first world problem is, if I should take the dip for the rather expensive special edition. I mean it seems to be really beautiful! :D

I don't normally go for vinyl releases, because, let's be frank, they're quite useless, as I mostly plug in my Computer to the stereo or listen it from my phone anyways. But for albums that I really love and have given me a lot (10/10 so to say), I pay the price, because I really want to give something back to the people who made it... as they're more expensive.

The next big purchase will be the Japanese BDs of Evangelion... But I really don't know, where to buy them from, since my usual import stores don't sell them... Might end up going to amazon.jp.
As for Vinyls, I really want to own Death Grips' Money Store... And I'd love to have something from Evangelion, or even better, the FLCL OST. Sadly, the former just doesn't contain the kind of music I want and the latter doesn't exist.

I've got Merriweather on vinyl too(was just listening to it actually) and yea the cover isn't quite as psychedelic as we'd all like. I remember the eye trick effect coming through very well when I had the design as the background on my computer back in the day. Nice purchase though, it's definitely a modern classic that is worthy of shelling out cash for. Had my brother buy me my copy for Xmas a few years back.

Regarding vinyl, unless you make the big bucks I think it's best to listen to an album digitally for like a month of so and then decide after that time if you really need it in your collection. It's a wonderful feeling to go to the record store on the day the album drops and then bring it home and put it on the turntable, but if you don't like it you're stuck with something ya ain't gonna listen to unless you resell it or whatever. Like, I bought Centipede HZ the day it came out and now never listen to it, though I probably could have saved the money and bought old copies of Strawberry Jam and/or Sung Tongs and would have been supporting AC either way. Haven't listened to Painting With yet, gonna give it a go this weekend probs.

As long as one has a nice stereo system and turntable listening to vinyls can be a lot of fun, and a much better experience than just sitting on a couch listening to the music on your mp3 and headphones. I've got these goofy big ass speakers and putting a good record on and laying down in front of them is super dope. But it's not like you can get any use of them when you want to go out walking at night and listen to some nice, haunting tunes, so I can see why you'd say they're useless.

Oh, so it isn't just me! Did they change the design up for the physical release, or does it just work better if looked on a screen? Must have been a great Xmas, btw.

Aw, the Centipede shock must have struck deep. You're right, and normally I'm very carefully considering my vinyl purchases... But the SE for Painting with is just too shiny. And I'm a bling-bling-bitch who is easily swayed by beautiful packaging. But, alas, the album did not quite strike my fancy, so rationality will prevail once more.

Oh, you're absolutely right. It's like how drip brewed is kinda more fulfilling than pressing buttons for instant capsule coffee. Or like rolling cigarettes. The tea ceremony of modern times :D - not eating away too much time, but definitely enhanced due to the effort put in. When I said useless, I meant to imply that I actually listen to my vinyls so rarely that they're more of a collector's item than an object of utility.
