Icky Thump...weird, wacky, and righteous

The Smashing Pumpkins' Zeitgeist is also moving in there. If 10-minute-long political diatribes don't say summer, I don't know what does!

Re: Re: Album of the Summer . . . . so far

I think Clawgrabber is my new favorite person.

Calling an album a grower always kind of seems like a cop out, but Easy Tiger just keeps getting better and better. I've reached the point where I crave songs and just have to listen.

I guess I just love the song on the album and confused it.

hey, alright!

i know exactly what you mean, bonochick. i have had "Two" stuck in my head all today, and Halloweenhead was rattling through my brain all weekend (especially the part where Ryan goes "Guitar Solo!")

awesome.

and now Rock N Roll is catching my attention.

I loved Love is Hell and Gold already, but Ryan Adams has officially clicked for me now, thanks to Easy Tiger.

And a couple incredible performances from LETTERMAN on youtube.



i tried Zeitgeist this morning, and it is good, but i made it 3 songs before my hankering for some Ryan Adams came back and I put on Heartbreaker. Surprise! ANOTHER GREAT ALBUM!

this guy is so talented it hurts my feelings.

Icky Thump by a wide margin for me, I really can't get enough of it.

Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga is up there, too, and surprisingly the Pumpkin's Zeitgeist is not too far behind. It's a lot better after the first listen.

Icky Thump was cool, I guess. Just not a huge fan. I have a bad feeling they'll never release anything as good as De Stijl. Now THAT was a great album.

My favorite is by far Andrew Bird's Armchair Apocrypha. GREAT, GREAT music. If you haven't already you need to check out Andrew Bird. He's amazing. Listen to some of his stuff. It's great.

Anyways... some other great albums are:

Menomena - Friend and Foe (open your mind a bit and listen to this!!!!)
Of Montral - Hissing Fauna
Queens of the Stone age - Era Vulgaris
The Shins - Whincing the Night Away
The Good, The Bad and the Queen - Kingdom of Doom


Oh crap... you said summer. Oh well... lol.

I've been forcing Wilco's Sky Blue Sky on all of my neighbors this summer by listening to it in the car with the windows rolled down. It's got a mellow sunny afternoon vibe to it that I don't know if I would've responded to as much if it had been a fall or winter release.

I've also really been enjoying Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, as well as the Nels Cline Singers' latest release, Draw Breath. Nels Cline is one of the guitarists for Wilco, but he's also a brilliant experimental jazz artist. His work can be a little out there, but I've really been getting into it lately.

I really like Because Of the Times, but I haven't been listening to it as much since summer started. There have just been so many good albums so far this year.

what up ya'll.

I would have to say now with all certainty my choice for the album of the summer has been irrevocably altered. What once was easy tiger has been trumped by icky thump.

long live jack white.

no one does what jack white do.
