Been away so a tad late, but Amcrash is generally reliable around here, especially if its not winter.

If she's born on that exact date, she'll share a birthday with Marisa Tomei and her crazy Uncle Hewson.

And to add my unpopular 2 cents to the DM discussion, much as I like the original, I find this cover far superior...



Love the guitar in the last minute

I saw the lineup when it was first announced and was like, fuck it, I'll go without Travis.



Then I remembered the whole pregnancy thing and realized that wasn't a good idea. My heart breaks every time I get an e-mail update about it.

Well, I finally had my first listen to VIOLATOR and it is gorgeous. Think I was only two or three songs into it when I said out loud to myself "This is really good."

Standout track for me on first listen was probably "Waiting For The Night." It feels like a song I've known for years yet I heard it for the first time today.

Weird side effect of (FINALLY) seeing Erasure live for the first time was I've been *super* into Depeche Mode again lately. Need to give Violator a spin on my way home from work.

I'll do my best?









OK, with all that aside, if anyone wants to play Fantasy Football, please let me know in the Put 'Em Under Pressure thread. This is my PSA on the subject, back to your regularly scheduled random.

I listened through a few times and felt the same it’s a fucking great vibe (and it’s so nice to hear Diddy!! Underrated r&b vocallist) but nothing blew my mind

Hoping that Interpol's latest album grows on me a little bit - it comes across as very confident, but almost too easily to the point it's quite pedestrian and unremarkable.

Listening back to the self-titled album, one that I always enjoyed on a personal level. The songs were extremely forced, but I actually really like it when Interpol endeavour to capture a particular mood in a song. Where there feels like an endgame that they are writing towards and they achieve it (for better or worse)

What does everyone have on their Depeche Mode Rushmore?

I’d go with Blasphemous Rumours, Policy of Truth, Stripped, and Clean.

In Homogenic, I hear a lot of music that represents antecedents for Radiohead and Bat for Lashes.

I remember an interview where Thom said Unravel was the most beautiful song he had ever heard, and that Homogenic was a direct influence on Kid A.


Good call on Bat for Lashes, too. The Cure + Bjork = Bat for Lashes.

I mean I read that Bjork, after Sugarcubes split up, said she'd had it with rock and was inspired by Eno and Kate Bush, so the lineage makes sense.

It's the strings that remind me a lot of Radiohead however, specifically AMSP. I wonder if they were listening to it at the time.

Music's power blows me away sometimes. I just put on Drowning Man for a playlist I'm trying to make and was instantly transported to my bedroom, at the age of 15 or so, after Scouts on Wednesday night, listening to War for the first time. Pretty amazing.

Sugarcubes were an underrated band IMO. Solid late 80s/early 90s alternative rock with some nice influences.
