    Beirut - Scenic World

    Can't believe I'm so late to the game here. I think I heard about these guys 4 years ago, listened to maybe 1 song, and then forgot about it. This is really good stuff :). And further confirms that horns in anything is awesome.

    thom yorke and four tet really don't need to be in on this release, or maybe i'm just jaded because i'm desperate for anything that's new burial.

    either way, they don't really bring anything to this or at least nothing that burial couldn't of done better sampling in himself on his own, at least.

    Eh, I think that Four Tet's production, which has become a whole ton stronger and more complex recently, really adds a sonic depth to Ego, a sort of vibrant analog warmth. I would understand your comment more in relation to Mirror, which is a far more skeletal, garage influenced track, but really Burial never could have pulled off anything as well-crafted as Ego by himself - I would say that the weakest track on Untrue is Raver, and that's the track most similar to this one. Four Tet really stands on his own in Ego, and I think Thom Yorke had a moderately large influence on both sides. Plus, it's Mirror that makes me desperately want some new Burial material.

    i just think thom yorke and four tet are pretty mediocre in their own right, is all.

    I think I first heard this on Californication. Kinda country, very simple, lyrics that fit any bad day you've ever had:

    Octopus Project - Truck

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SDeTv12mulo

    Seeing them in 18 hrs from now :). So checked them out in little bits and pieces over the past month. This song is fun. And looking forward to seeing the lady play theremin on some of the other songs. She is actually very very good at it.

    Is the rating required, or can I still just say I liked/didn't like it and expand on why?

    Fair point, I should have clarified. I don't expect (or even want) anyone to rate things, but posting a youtube video with no comment or just "this song is incredible" isn't enough.

    Recently re-listened to my Proof album. Searching For Jerry Garcia is a vastly underrated Rap/Hip-Hop genre album and Proof's last one before he was shot and killed. Had this track stuck in my head since Friday. After listening to this, I got back into D12 as well. Impacting lyrics, man.

    Timber Timbre -- Creep on Creepin' On

    Bluesy folk-"rock" I guess? Pretty mellowed out, with the repetitive piano notes and strings and occasional sax in the mix. I don't think it's all that "creepy" but that seems to be the descriptor used in many reviews. I'd maybe go for the term "Southern gothic" (except the band's from Canada... and Southern Gothic is a literary genre, not a musical one...). I like most of the songs on here, but I probably couldn't listen to the whole album through. All the songs are the same style and too much listening would probably make me feel as if I'd just sat in chair staring at the wall with my eyes glazed over.

    Anyhow, the tunes are quite good. So I recommend giving it a listen.

    Nearly four years after releasing Mirrored, Battles is finally coming out with a new LP, titled Gloss Drop. Ice Cream is the first single. It reminds me of summertime, and for some reason the original Tony Hawk on N64.

    Also, a little birdie told me Gloss Drop is seriously fantastic.

    Man, when you pasted this into steam chat I thought you were talking about Odd Future or whatever that rap group was on the Jimmy Fallon show. I tried so hard to work those lyrics into the Crack The Skye synopsis. Now I realise I am not smart :D

    Psychostick is quickly becoming one of my favourite bands. There's not much I can do to describe it, you must listen. Laugh probability is high, especially as this is the highlight of the album Sandwich.

    Ayreon - Day Three: Pain

    Holy hell. I listened through all of The Human Equation last night as I was drifting off to sleep. Hearing all of the voices singing to each other over all of this amazing music was trippy as hell. Definitely recommend this. Devin Townsend's role as Rage was cool I should note.

    Beady Eye - Millionaire

    Great little pop song that won't get to many peoples ears because Beady Eye don't seem to want to promote their stuff outside of their official sites.


    Miles Kane - Rearrange

    Retro British music, much like Beady Eyes stuff, sounds great and makes a nice change from the shit normally on the Radio.

    Sia - Buttons

    Loving this girl's voice. The Zero 7 tracks I listen to most are those with her doing vocals and there are just too few, so I got more into her own stuff. Everything sounds just wonderful.

    I really quite like this track. I love the tone of the song, all downtrodden, moody. Beautiful all the same. The lyrics are little philosophical life affirming diddies that I guess are a little heavy handed but I'm not ashamed to say I like what he's trying to say and he put it forward in a fun play of words.

    Really great song complimented by a great video.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaMiVDZu_T4

    From their upcoming album to be released sometime this month. Their earlier two albums are really good stuff and I definitely recommend a listen. I just hope that they are a late announcement to play at Leeds, would make my summer.

    She is indeed a fantastically gifted singer. If you haven't already, have a listen to her live stuff like this:

    Awe inspiring, particularly 4:00 on.

    On the eve of their third album, I'd love you guys to check out Wild Beasts. They easily one of the best bands coming out of the UK right now. Amazing lyricists, incredible atmosphere. Hayden and Tom's vocals counterpoint each other so well. They are definitely a band that deserves to be more popular. Their album "Two Dancers" was likely my favourite album of 2009.

    Dark Suns - Grave Human Genuine

    Grabbed this album after learning ex-Pain of Salvation bassist Kristoffer Gildenlöw plays on it. Was not disappointed. His presence isn't immediately obvious (he was always good at playing in the pocket anyway), but the PoS influence is. Sounds like them if they were a bit more death metal, which I'm all for. :cool:

    Also a bit of a Tool influence in there, pretty apparent about 1:30 in.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mTUE4Lx-U3A

    Also also, like the only live performance of Maudlin ever recorded, wowie! Has Toby on vocals instead of whoever it was originally, so it's a bit rougher than on the album, but damn they still sound sharp as hell.

    So White Stripes aren't together any more but whichever band Jack White is in is 90% likely to be awesome.

    I especially like Raconteurs stuff and this is a classic. Saw them live at Leeds Festival one year and the energy of the crowd
    was just immense! I think White's riffs are often based around "getting people going". They can be simple but I'll be damned
    if they aren't effective!

    Gotta love 'em.
