    you're so right about Codeine. I'm trying to get off this depressing stuff but it draws me in every time

    Yes, it's a fantastic album! I personally found Apocalypse rather hard to get into, but I loved Dream River immediately. It has such a sincere vibe to it that I really admire.

    outubro 2013
  • diehappyx33

    I've listened to it about 3 or 4 times so far, and I really enjoy it! It has some real gems on it, but I still need time to figure out how I feel about it as a whole. I see you've been listening to the new Bill Callahan album. Isn't it beautiful?

    Have you heard the new Sebadoh album?

    Hi rewinddude! Great musical taste! I need to check out some of the artists in your library. I am curious to know what you would think of my friends' band, MANKIND: www.youtube.com/watch?v=bedN-v9QMwc . Cheers from Sweden

    i'm inevitably part-sheep. dunno what percent - could be 100%. so i can't trust my own opinion, which in this case aligns with the popular view. i don't think aging causes a decline in musical abilities per se, but i do think the correlation is there and is justified. there are some genres, like you mentioned, that are kinder: there's lyric-heavy stuff, classical, and jazz, which i know nothing about. you know what - i am 20 and most of what i listen to is probably geared toward young people and so is better made by young people. i don't listen to jazz, so i shouldn't make blanket statements about music in general. based on my experiences in music which are limited to permutations of rock and classical, i see it.

    nice. i will always have several soft spots for top 40 from 2005ish as well. that's what i listened to on sunday afternoons while doing homework. remember kelly clarkson? emotional rock ballads? "IRIS"? i had no knowledge of non-classical music then and thought that it was as good as popular music can get. and i was okay with that. what do you think about the fact that solo musicians from critically acclaimed bands tend to fare poorly after that? not only in terms of sales but reviews? it's true that in many other fields, a person's most important contributions are made in their twenties or thirties. i just don't want to believe that me at age 20 will be as good as i will get in music and in every other respect basically

    setembro 2013
  • liquorsetmefree

    haha of course. carpenters (aren't their fans mostly old people), all sorts of insubstantial pop music (that ought not merit more than one listen according to people who have respected taste in music -- see marshmallow coast), thermals (which i consider a guilty pleasure because they are so moralistic and sincere and do not use more than 3 chords), pavement (only because who the fuck would play gold soundz a thousand times on repeat lol), a few songs by led zeppelin (the, um, really emotional ones), the strokes, of montreal...idk if you consider my list guilty enough or pleasurable enough for that matter. what are yours? and don't tell me that you like what you like and ain't no shame in that or anything because i'm so unaware of everything outside my head

    maybe you're a stronger person than me, but to be honest my opinions would be different. it's hard to tell how the consensus affects one's perception.

    setembro 2013
  • liquorsetmefree

    if everyone regarded nmh and mbv as they regard nickelback do you think you would like them as much as you do?

    setembro 2013
  • liquorsetmefree

    i never thought i would like twee. elephant 6 bands with which i am still obsessed got me into twee and now it's like where has belle and sebastian been all my life? when i'm sad i like to listen to a collection of artists i have labeled nice guy indie. it doesn't include twee and i wouldn't put the strokes or pavement or gbv but bands like silkworm. i don't know if that makes sense. i need something not too intimidating or cold.

    setembro 2013
  • liquorsetmefree

    what do you think about belle and sebastian? and twee in general?

    setembro 2013
  • liquorsetmefree

    the fall and joy division are both post-punk so i guess genre doesn't mean much

    "We were playing a festival in Dublin the other week. There was this other group, like, warming up in the next sort of chalet, and they were terrible. I said, 'Shut them cunts up!' And they were still warming up, so I threw a bottle at them. The bands said, 'That's the Sons of Mumford' or something. 'They're number five in charts!' I just thought they were a load of retarded Irish folk singers." -MES

    I'll be sure to tell you about it if I can make it.

    setembro 2013
  • Lunch17

    Thanks for the recommendation. I think I actually discovered Cynthia Dall through the fact that Jim O'Rourke produced for her, and then after that listened to Smog. If I can get out of night class in a couple of weeks I may actually see Bill Callahan in the basement of a church.

    animal collective is about as generic as you get, ironically - which is...what they want? lol. i will admit...i've been apprehensive about exploring slowcore. it always seems like "shoegaze/chamber pop/post-rock slowed down." do you think Low is a good place to start? i too have listened to loveless for indeterminate amounts of time, especially while studying for finals last year. it's comforting but not boring, all-consuming but requiring no attention. what is it with post-punk that i don't feel natural with? i like the fall because they have such attitude and i would like to live vicariously through that, but nothing else in the genre has really clicked with me

    setembro 2013
  • Lunch17

    You seem to be interested in a lot of the same music I am, and I love the Cynthia Dall album art in your about me. It also looks like you are going to a lot of cool shows too. Do you have any artists you would recommend I check out?

    setembro 2013
  • liquorsetmefree

    my biggest pet peeve is being interesting/different for the sake of being interesting/different. of course that could be entirely dependent on my perception of a band. i may never get over my feelings of wtf toward arcade fire. i did, however, eventually come around re: most of my favorite bands now, which is weird but gives me lots of hope. i rarely like something on the first listen. aaaaaand you know i have to ask about your favorite albums that are especially good when listened all the way through :) aside from husker du i reckon mine are a lot of shoegaze albums because of the flow. i love zoning out to something deep. loveless is about as deep as your average well.

    setembro 2013
  • liquorsetmefree

    i totally get what you mean by nice filler. husker du's like that. when i'm in the mood for noisy angst it's perfect. i'm usually not an album person, although i've been trying to listen through full albums more lately because it's an art form that provides the context for me to appreciate subtle things. i will definitely give smog and sebadoh another chance. after all, they are the nineties. also i want to understand why they are so critically lauded because i want to believe that music is not a completely subjective experience, a stance virtually indefeasible. it's only because there are too many variables that we can't identify. i want to find some of them. i hate not seeing at least a shadow of what others see in a band, even if i don't love the music in a personal way. so far though, i've only managed to see the greatness in bands i like so i guess i want to like everything.

    hey i'll check out iceage. i recently listened to teen dream by beach house and it was unique enough but i didn't feel like it went anywhere. maybe it's the fact that i've been listening to sooo much shoegaze lately that they got lost in the mix. bill's the guy from smog right? i've listened to an album or two from that band. they remind me of the microphones and now that i think of it, it's because i found them at the same time. what is the best attribute of bill callahan's music in your opinion? i've encountered sebadoh while going through indie rock and i don't get them yet. you know what i mean? what do you like most about sebadoh?

    setembro 2013
  • liquorsetmefree

    most of it hasn't stuck with me. the only pre-post-punk i still listen to is dylan and vu. they have something great that's just beyond me. these days i am into more recent stuff, although i rarely breach the millennium for some reason. do you keep up with current groups?

    setembro 2013

    i think we are the most compatible people if you disregard as i often do my classic rock phase

    Because you have such excellent taste, I'll take your word for it and give it more listens. Thank you!

    agosto 2013
  • diehappyx33

    Thanks for the recommendations! Greatly appreciate it. For some bizarre reason, I find the new album difficult to get into. I've listened to it about 3 times and found it very dull (but then again, some albums take many, many listens to *click* for me) except for a few tracks. Since you speak highly of it, I'll give it another shot. I'll be sure to check out their older releases and those EPs. So far, I have "I Could Live in Hope," "Things We Lost in the Fire," "Trust," "Oh, C'mon," and the new one.

    Hey! What are your favorite Low albums? I ask because I have a few of theirs that I really enjoy, but I want to get to know their discography better. Have you heard their new release?

  • davethebrave371

    Just listened, really digging your sound! Keep it up, your slowcore/sadcore guitar skillz are impressive and your song-craft on Devilish Recurrences in particular was really great, from the lyrics to the tonality of the instrumental aspects. Sleep Chrysalis, though, was far and away my favourite track. Beautiful!

    julho 2013
  • Rosemorphine

    yeah, was really nice to see all my favorite bands in your library) greetings from Russia! everything is so sad and slow here ))

    Also, you and I have seen My Bloody Valentine live...that's a psychedelic bond that transcends physical meatbrains. That 20+ minute long holocaust section of You Made Me Realise is holy communion and baptism into the church of shoegaze. I feel like when I die, the last thing my neural firings will land upon before eletrochemical traffic stops and a final stillness settles inside the bone cockpit (well, final until the brainpilot begins to rot, anyway) will be aural memories of that ephemeral sonic transcendance moment stretched into tapering experiential infinity.

    julho 2013
  • davethebrave371

    Man, your taste is ALSO amazing. If I'd started scrobbling a few years earlier, 17 of your top 20 would be in common with me (as it is, I haven't listened to scrobble-able forms of 7 of those 17 for a few years now, although I put on vinyl of most of 'em now and again), but on the topic of the three in your top 20 that I've been meaning to get into and haven't yet, what do you think are the best entry points for Codeine, Red House Painters and Sebadoh?

    julho 2013
  • heyluana

    yeah, it's a beatiful album. All Your Women Things is one of my favorite songs. i didn't know about this new album... so excited for it now!

    so you like to ask hard questions. i would say it's A River Ain't Too Much To Love, but i have favorite songs from each of his albums and i really love Kicking A Couple Around too. what are your favorite albums by Mr Callahan?
