With regards to your song, that was pretty cool. What is it exactly haha? Kinda reminds me of something Elastica might have made if they were still active...
it's all good man, i agree there's a bit more meat to AK than Weezer, it's the simplest comparison i could pull but there are a few other early 90s alt/grunge bands i've heard through friends that hit a lot closer to their mark.

as for what Whale is? not really sure. apparently at least a few of the band members were local TV personalities first and their first hit single was more of a joke than anything else (hobo humpin slobo babe). they just happened to pop out as funk-rock was fizzling and just before alt-rock started dominating so they were able to grab from all over the spectrum.

Elastica would have never written a song that long haha. Justine Frischmann was adamant about writing short songs and if you wanted to hear the cool bit or the hook a 2nd time just rewind the damn tape. too tied down to the punk rock ethos to step out into funky raps. hehe

also Steely Dan is the be all end all of sextoys in William S. Borrough's Naked Lunch.

and now going back to the actual point of the thread... (really digging this whole idea)


Dntel - Rock my Boat

is this an outtake from 'In Rainbows'? it's like All I Need with different lyrics almost to a T. it's not bad but ultimately doesn't stray from itself. - 5/10

next up (it's black at the start for the first few seconds, again awesome video)




DAMMIT - this thread moves too fast...

Strawberry Switchblade - makes me want to stab myself. i thought this kind of poppy new wave crap was dead and gone. i mean really, it was one thing for everyone and their dog to try redoing Joy Division, The Smiths, and The Cure, it's a whole other thing to channel freaking Cyndi Lauper. 2/10

Not sure really. Didn't blow me away as those fractured IDM beats seem to be everywhere these days. 5/10

It's unfortunately true; a vocalist with a range as insane as Tim Buckley shouldn't have gone as unnoticed as he did.

I like the contrasting elements in the song; I've always been fond of things like light guitar harmonics contrasting an otherwise loud sound, like around the opening of this. Even if it only happens for a few seconds, it's always badass in one way or another. I don't particularly like the vocalists but then again, I never let a discontent for a vocalist throw me off the music entirely. Guitar parts, are for the most part creative, never reducing themselves to redundantly playing their same old shpeal over the repeating bassline... Something like that. I'm not really that heavy into the genre enough to analyze it much further, but it was more than enjoyable. I'll expect myself to find my way to an album of theirs someday.

? they sound almost nothing alike, the ONLY similarity is a slightly similar bassline, and also this song was released before the radiohead song, and plus dntel worked over 5 years on dumb luck (the album "Rock My Boat" is from) so if you're going to acuse anyone of copying music then acuse radiohead.

P.s. i like both bands, but please get your facts straight

radiohead - in rainbows - October, 10 2007
dntel - dumb luck - April 24, 2007

Im usually not into music like this (lyrically oriented), but those lyrics are stunning. 8/10

now, here's some avant-garde music from my hero:
YouTube - Tyondai Braxton - Jackpot

(if the song isn't treating you right at the beginning, there are two distinct parts in the song, an intro instrumental and then there's manipulated singing in the second half.)
