Yeah, and I love it, I love the sound of the strings, the progression... very catchy and menacing. I'm being surprised, how "normal" it is, not that that's a bad thing per se. I'm really looking forward to the full LP.
Also, the marketing campaign was once again, pretty interesting.

Also, the new Soutaiseiriron album Tensei Jingle dropped. At first it didn't grab me at all, which made me sad, because I thought "fuck, now I'm over Soutaiseiriron!". But after giving it a second chance, I'm now I'm listening to it all the time. Something about Soutaiseiriron makes me love them so much. Maybe it's the extremely catchy tunes, lol. The song writing is still tight, but much more experimental than their older stuff - this trend, which could already be seen emerging in their previous album, intensified here... they've moved closer to the passepied song, so to say. The songs are longer in general, and we get some quirky electro-sounds. Etsuko's trademark singing is once again on the spot and scratches my itch, while the rest of the band do their darndest to spice up the songs. Lots of stuff going on.
Yeah, cool album, it's my jam.

It's a low key song but it's also exquisitely orchestrated and produced. Most of all, I love the video! The Trumptonshire-esque channelling of a vision of The Wicker Man is enthralling, together with those lyrics: Abandon all reason / Avoid all eye contact / Do not react / Shoot the messengers / Burn the witch

Really looking forward to this one now, if I wasn't already before...

Oh my Cat. If those two tracks are any indication for the quality of the rest of the album, we're in for something amazing.

Hah! Totally worth it. The album dropped at what would've been 4:00AM here, so I downloaded it before going to work and gave it a once-through. Very moody, delicate and brooding, yet really dynamic and groovy at times; I love it. Really looking forward to getting home this evening to give it a proper listen.

I really like this analysis on the track 'Daydreaming': https://www.reddit.com/r/radiohead/comm ... ing_video/

Also, 'Ful Stop', 'Decks Dark', 'Identikit', 'The Numbers', 'Present Tense' and 'True Love Waits'. This fucking album, man. THIS FUCKING ALBUM.

This is a bit mystifying to me; Converge are remixing and remastering my favourite ever album of theirs, You Fail Me, as You Fail Me Redux: https://soundcloud.com/epitaph-records/ ... ou-fail-me

I always really dug the production on YFM. I thought it matched the songwriting and savageness perfectly. However, I am always interested when musicians revisit their music, especially of the scope of a whole album. A year or two back, Whirl did the same, remixing Pipe Dreams as Pipe Dreams Redux, and the result was a greatly improved album looked upon in a new light. So it's going to be interesting seeing the results with a record I actually rank in my top 10 of all-time.

(Brand) new Brand New -- I am a Nightmare makes me feel pretty good about this band. Reminds me more of their first two albums than anything off their last 2(plus the 2006 demos). Which isn't to say I didn't like The Devil and God... or that I want them to start making the exact same music they were making thirteen years ago. But I never really expected them to make anything this upbeat again, so it's a cool surprise.

Speaking of the old days, Thursday have just been announced to play a fest here in Chicago, which is pretty sweet news. I tend to stay as far away from fests as possible, but Thursday is Thursday and I never was able to have a "this may be the last time I see Thursday live so I better enjoy it" moment(doesn't hurt that two of my other all time favorite bands, Fucked Up and The Hold Steady are playing, plus Brand New, Refused and MOZ). It's come at the perfect time too, since I've actually gotten around to giving their final two LPs thorough listening tos, and that I'm in good enough shape to not feel like I'd be lagging through a long show.

:cool:

What a conundrum; I too loathe festivals, but I love Thursday. What does one do?

Yea, the decision to go is definitely not for the faint of heart, man. I'd hate to skip it waiting for them to play a venue and then see them not play again for awhile(or not play here). Luckily the fest is much more low key than some of the others we have here. I don't think it's one of those "put on festival clothes and buy ten dollar beers and go to be seen and talk about going afterwards" type of fests, but a fest it remains.

Rickly is a great front man though, so at least I'd know I'd be seeing a sweet show. And I could def impress everybody with one of my fourteen year old hot topic Thursday tees.

Cliff Martinez is a fucking genius. Seriously adore this guy's soundtracks, especially those for Refn's Drive and Only God Forgives (the latter being my personal favourite). Here's his theme for the upcoming The Neon Demon, his third collaboration with Refn: https://soundcloud.com/milanrecords/01- ... neon-demon


Also, I've been on something of a Radiohead bender what with A Moon Shaped Pool and all. Specifically I've been revisiting 2003's Hail to the Thief (The Gloaming) but with Thom Yorke's revised tracklist, which I like to call The Gloaming Redux. Overall it makes for a much leaner, tighter and effective listening experience. Definitely give it a shot when you have the chance, anyone.

The Gloaming Redux  SPOILER: Show
Image

Some quick thoughts: 'There There' makes for a brilliant opener; the extended intro you can imaging Thom-dancing to, and it also serves well as the statement song for the album, giving an overall inclination on the tone, song-writing, themes and aesthetic. The much-maligned quasi-title track acts as a nice bridge to the lush piano piece of the record, 'Sail to the Moon', a song which I've always loved a lot. From there, 'Sit Down. Stand Up.' through to 'Scatterbrain' are act two, with 'Where I End and You Begin' being the obvious centrepiece. Then, the original opener '2+2=5' is now the opener for the third act, compiled along with 'Myxomatosis' and 'A Wolf at the Door', which retains its original position, and in usual Radiohead fashion, is an absolute stellar closer, and the only closing track of theirs (actually I would include 'Separator' from TKOL as well) post-OK Computer that feels like a "to be continued" instead of a goodbye, i.e. 'Motion Picture Soundtrack', 'Videotape', 'The Tourist' and now with 'True Love Waits' on A Moon Shaped Pool; they all sound very final.

Fuck. Me. Sideways. Dominick Fernow has finally dropped a Vatican Shadow track from his upcoming album that he's been playing the last couple years live, a track that has been haunting me in my dreams, restlessly: https://soundcloud.com/factmag/vatican- ... f-the-same

As soon as I heard those fucking kicks, man, I knew, and I smiled. When I first heard this cut in his Boiler Room San Francisco set last year, I scoured dude's entire massive and obscure back catalogue looking for it, obviously coming to the conclusion that it was new music, unreleased, or maybe an unrecognisable variation of his remix of Function's 'Psychic Warfare' (which obviously heavily influenced and informed this song). And here we are. Today is a good day. Mesmerising industrial techno at its finest.

What'd that take you, about six days? This is very nice though, exactly my style of electronics. It's come at a pretty good time too, been listening to a lot of Frozen Niagara Falls as of late and was just thinking of Vatican Shadow yesterday. :cool:

I lose my shit every time that trippy melody appears at the peak; Vatican Shadow at its most conventional, actual dance music, even though I love all the ambient and drone stuff too. But this song, its had its hooks in my soul for what feels like so long now, and yeah; it took me ages looking and it all came to naught. Only a week away from Media in the Service of Terror dropping now, and if 'More of the Same' is any indication, this could be the best VS release yet.

Glad to hear you've been listening to some Prurient, Joy. You're probably like me and only skirt the more darkwave and electronic stuff as opposed to the noise entity that it is at its core. However, one great thing Frozen Niagara Falls achieves is making the harsher noise elements actually enjoyable, i.e. 'Traditional Snowfall', 'Poinsettia Pills', 'A Sorrow with a Braid'. Absolutely phenomenal stuff. Prurient's magnum opus for sure.

If you're interested, this mix from FACT is a great tour through all things Dom Fernow without going too far down the rabbit hole: http://www.factmag.com/2015/09/25/fact- ... -prurient/

Yea, definitely prefer the electronic stuff(especially a lot of the electronic work on Bermuda Drain, since it sounds very clean) but I'm getting to dig some of the noise elements, though they've definitely been an acquired taste for me. I absolutely love towards the end of Dragonflies to Sew you Up when the static hits(maybe it just reminds me of NGE Ep. 20) and the sound of people talking comes in. I also kinda dig the screaming vocals, which is something I was never much into until the last few years, which is around the same time I started getting into music with a lot of synthesizers as well, so Fernow is basically right up my alley at the moment. Been listening to a lot of NIN's With Teeth as well and been really loving Reznor's singing style as well, and I was never ever into NIN before. It's interesting to think about growing up and your feelings for music going this way and that way, digging an artist so hard at 21 and then being 26 and it doesn't click anymore and all that. Thnx for the link too.

Last night, I paid a close attentive listen to Linkin Park's album A Thousand Suns. I have to say it was quite an enjoyable experience that proved to me that they can really do no wrong despite some fans inevitably crying foul on them ditching their Hybrid Theory/Meteora sound.

Several songs that stick out in a positive way for me include "Wretches and Kings", "Iridescent", "The Catalyst", "Robot Boy", and "When They Come For Me". I do recall that there was a Rocked review of the album in it's Regretting the Past column. I couldn't finish it and now, I am glad I didn't let the review deter me from loving this album to the brim. While at times I do miss the old school LP sound, I like the fact that they're not afraid to mix it up with newer directions and all in all, I give A Thousand Suns an 8.5/10.
