Nov 18 2011, 0h55 por g776655少年ナイフ a.k.a. Shonen Knife played 7th Street Entry last Friday. It was the most fun show I've seen in a long long while.
7th Street Entry is a very good place to see Shonen Knife. It's a fairly small club with a low close stage. Unless you flew to Japan or something, you couldn't do better for seeing them.
The Blind Shake
The Blind Shake were great. They are a local band. They are, simply, a great high-energy live band. I'd definitely go see them again. They addressed this issue after coming onstage and before starting up: "We're from here." (Translated: come see us!)
They are a sort of loud aggressive stomping garage rock, with a pretty fierce preciseness to how they played. I loved their double detuned Danelectro guitar sound. This video conveys them well, though the sound muddies up in the louder parts.
There has been an interesting similarity in some recent shows I've seen. A distinct contrast between a formidable and intense frontwoman presence during songs…
Mar 30 2011, 6h15 por deyaroKelley asked me for some Shonen Knife (少年ナイフ) album recommendations earlier today. I figured I'd share them with the rest of the group:
1) "Shonen Knife" - a compilation CD of their early EPs. It's fun! And they were really kind of cute back then. Couldn't play their instruments too well but wrote catchy pop rock tunes with odd lyrics. And word about this album popped up in the oddest of places. My buddy Ken once gave me a photocopy of a review of album which he had found in a HI-FI/audiophile magazine. This album was released by an indie label called "Gasutanku Records" so it may be tricky to locate. The EPs which make up this album, "Burning Farm" and "Yama no Attchan" are available on the iTunes music store.
2) "Pretty Little Baka Guy + Live In Japan" - the first CD of theirs I listened to. A friend gave it to me for Christmas. More kooky fun. The live tracks are very primitive recordings dating back to the mid/late 1980s if I recall correctly. …
Dez 30 2010, 20h56 por CvaldaVessalisSorry for the lateness... Christmas always seems to mess me about; at least I've had enough time off to get most of this list sorted!! Anywho, enough rabid transgressions, please avail yourselves of positions 50-26 of my year end chart!
50. Love King by The-Dream
Superstar R&B singer/songwriter/producer strikes again with another album of luscious, sensuous, state-of-the-art slow-jam grooves that even at their absolute nasty-filthiness are shot through with enough intelligent sexiness for you to at the very least nod your head in appreciation. Following through on sophomore album Love vs. Money's themes of love, sex and wealth as well as further establishing his persona as the, well, "love king", but without such an epic narrative throughline, the Prince influences in particular have never been so pronounced as before, but the fact that Terius Youngdell Nash aims so high and still manages to pull it all off for most…
Ago 30 2010, 17h18 por Babs_05The idea is for a journal for every month listing new albums I listen to and what I think so that when I review the year's music in December, I will have a handy reminder. I will add to this as the month goes on. Suggestions welcome.
