Fully agree about the new Goat Girl - a big improvement over their strong debut. For other albums I've heard so far out today, I really love this debut by Anna B Savage - filled with stark, haunting and emotionally raw songs.




I also listened to The Future Bites by Steven Wilson and holy shit, it's terrible. What the hell happened? I know some of his more recent work got a mixed reception here but there's nearly nothing of value on his latest. Only three tracks, "King Ghost," "12 Things I Forgot" and "Count of Unease" are decent. This might be the biggest drop in quality for an artist I like since Everything Now.

Everything Now, what a piece of shit that was.

I just saw the film clip for Time to Pretend on TV, had never seen it before, and found myself very moved by it. I've always been moved by the song. I'm having a tough time so that's adding to it, but yeah. I also then saw this film clip, which I thought was a riot and fit the song really well (I've never been interested to listen to this band).

Also, my partner is really, really loving Fetch the Bolt Cutters, which is making me really happy. Further proof of the record's general appeal (you don't have to be a Fiona acolyte or music aficionado to enjoy it).

Sounds like it was a sad accident, perhaps not unlike Arthur Cave.

Screens and Grapes of Wrath probably the best 2 tracks. Hopefully the last time they eschew the electric guitar for a full album.

Looking forward to Van Weezer when it drops, should be more to my liking if its as described. (Hopefully Rivers hasn't studied at Bono University and majored in Edge is on Fire with a minor in Punk Rock from Venus).
I enjoyed it a lot, though as always I wish the lyrics were less cheesy and relied less on easy rhymes. Aloo Gobi is difficult to get through.

Loved the string arrangements though. Numbers is a great song.

I, for one, am shocked to find out all these horrible accusations about Marilyn Manson.

Yes sir, did not see those coming at all!

He's apparently friendly with a lot of bigger names out there, specifically Jarvis Cocker, so I suspect this may be one of those acts that's on the rise. Or perhaps he bubbles under forever, who knows. This isn't exactly radio friendly stuff. Also he did some Twin Peaks and Mr. Rogers music last year, so that's probably something I'll check out.
Thanks for this, Ashley. I get the Tom Waits reference for sure, such an odd, distinctive voice. If not for the vocals, I could mistake that first track you shared, Vinegar Hill, for Pizzicato Five or any early Shibuya-kei group, such is the way he combines a traditional Bossa Nova beat with that lush feel.

In other non-news, Loveless is still so fucking good.

I've been thinking a lot about the favorite albums of all time list we were discussing a few weeks ago. I think Loveless would be in my top 10 at this point. I really can't find any flaws in it. And even if it is about the album experience more than any individual song, Someday is just so incredible. What a band. I wish the vinyl wasn't so ridiculously expensive for me to own it.

^^Speaking of Loveless...

1991 was an absolutely legendary year for music - the list of albums released, including Loveless, is mind-boggling - and seeing as it's now been 30 years, it wouldn't surprise me if we see commemorations/retrospectives/etc for a number of these.

(in order of release date)

Queen - Innuendo(the last album before Freddie's death - the title track is one of my favorite tracks of theirs, period) - 2/4(30 years to the day today)
REM - Out Of Time - 3/12
Temple Of The Dog - Self-Titled - 4/16
Smashing Pumpkins - Gish - 5/28
Seal - Self-titled debut(this is the one with "Crazy" on it) - 6/11
Van Halen - For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge(maybe their last semi-relevant album, "Right Now" was big, and 316 is great little Eddie solo) - 6/18
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Into The Great Wide Open - 7/2
Metallica - Black Album - 8/12
Pearl Jam - Ten - 8/27
GnR - Use Your Illusions I&II - 9/17
Nirvana - Nevermind - 9/24
RHCP - BloodSugarSexMagik - 9/24
Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger - 9/24
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless - 11/4
U2 - Achtung Baby - 11/18
Michael Jackson - Dangerous - 11/26(Was hesitant to include this one - are we still allowed to talk about him or has he been cancelled altogether? This was the last classic album of his, which spawned a couple of huge singles in "Black Or White" and "Remember The Time")

And that doesn't include hip-hop stuff like Public Enemy's "Apocalypse 91" or Tupac's debut.

Dangerous was a good album. Remember the Time was my favorite track. But, obviously, a LOT has happened since then. I no longer listen to any of his music and I will change the station if a song of his comes on the radio.

1991 was an awesome year for music! 30 years! Holy shit!
