I saw Alvvays supporting The Jesus and Mary Chain and I've got to say that I enjoyed their set much more than I've enjoyed their studio output. It made me regret not going to their own headliner the night before (especially as they had Major Leagues, who are fucking great, as support).

So the new Zola Jesus is awesome. Several shades of Björk all over Okovi. Remains is such an incredible song.

I hadn't thought of the Bjork comparison, but it works.

A marked improvement over Taiga

The video's excellent as well.

Good to know, because what I heard of that album, I didn't like all that much.

Seeing Jeff Tweedy solo tonight. Hopefully he focuses on Being There, Summerteeth, and YHF. Let's go.

(Stay is my underrated pick from that album)

cymbaline is the proto-childhood's end, with the sarcastic final line and all

I've been singing the praises of Obscured By Clouds for a while. And that's one of the great ones on there.

Any other artist could put out that record and have it be a great one, but Radiohead's history worked against them. So putting out a short, somewhat slight record that ultimately felt more like an EP didn't work for them.

I never gave it that weight. In Rainbows is in my top handful of albums ever, so from the moment King of Limbs was announced I had my expectations in check, because how could a new record top In Rainbows?

It didn't, but it didn't matter, I was happy with a pretty good short album. I think that's what hurt that album with a lot of people.

The only vocal that comes back to me even five minutes after the end of the album is True Love Waits, but that's probably because I already knew it from its wholly superior live version. Man this version of that song bums me out because of how much I loved the former arrangement.
I think the AMSP version destroys the live version. I can understand the affinity for the live (Oslo) version, with its acoustic guitar, but the AMSP version kills it for mine.

It's one of the biggest gut-punches I have ever heard in all my time listening to music. You know the story behind why it appeared on AMSP after all this time, right, tourist?

True Love Waits in its final form is the saddest song Radiohead have ever committed to tape, and for band with a cavalcade of sad songs, that's fucking saying something. I don't understand how this version could bum you out; even if you yearn for the I Might Be Wrong version, it just can't exist as that, because of what happened. And it's so fucking powerful because of it.

Anyone check out the new Death From Above 1979 album yet? It's good and actually features and instrument called the guitar.

It's not Cirrus Minor, either.

Waiting for Ax to say that Summer '68 is his favorite Floyd song, which I would file under the strangest opinion ever expressed on this board. Sorry, Ax.

Summer '68 is a really great song though. I have a weakness for Rick Wright's songs in general.

Checking out a preview of the new Wolf Alice. Other than one song that's totally out of place on the record, I like it so far.

Good. When I saw them last month they played a bunch of songs from it and I was very anxious by the end of the show because they just didn't feel that good. Maybe they're better on record.

I need to listen to the debut again to compare; it's been quite a while since I've heard it.

that one song that's out place probably sounds like a bad ripoff of This Heat but, like, worse, right?
