in no order (and with more personal notes)



boxer became really important to me with the development of my friendship with kristen and her boyfriend ike.....this is "their" album, and while standing on the sideline of their budding romance, fake empire especially captured my two dear friends as a couple,.....i cant help listening to this album and smiling knowing that those two are so happy

however here is my choice cut
YouTube - The National- "Apartment Story"




this year i got really into fela,.....i feel as though this is what i've been missing my whole life

YouTube - Fela Kuti "Expensive ****" (1975)



with my first pink dots show under my belt, i have to attribute my new found love of esoteric underground music to the tear garden,....and made in china part two (though i'm not ready for skinny puppy)

YouTube - The Tear Garden - Made In China, Part 2

(Wont let me post image urls, probably because I'm a new guy. I'll edit them in later, sorry.)

Beirut - The Flying Club Cup (2007)

Fantastic album. Condon's obsession with Paris really shines in this thing here. Really digging his whole Classical-pop influence. Plus, Condon's got an amazing voice.

Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago (2007)

Was sort of surprised that I missed out on this since everyone I know has been talking about Bon Iver forever. Plus, this heartfelt, solo acoustic sound is usually right up my alley.

The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots (2002)

I'll be honest, before this I haven't listened to The Flaming Lips before (I know, heresy). I figured it was about time I educate myself, so I decided to pick this album up, mainly because I had prior knowledge of Fight Test.

This. Only started listening to it about a week ago and I'm pretty sure it's now easily in my top 10 favorite albums of all time.

"Fight Test" is basically a rip off of Cat Steven's "Father and Son" sound-wise. Good album, though.

This is undoubtedly the best album I discovered this year.



And this is a fantastic review I found on rateyourmusic, which I invite you to read if you have a couple minutes to spare.

Quote:
SAW THIS IN A SHOP WITH “THIS ****ING ROCKS” STICKER ON IT SO TOOK IT TO COUNTER AND SLAMMED IT DOWN AND SHOUTED AT DUDE WORKING THERE “HOW MUCH?” WHEN HE ANSWERED I SAID “NOT THE PRICE DILLWEED, HOW MUCH DOES IT ROCK?” DILWEED’S ANSWER IS LIKE SHRUG, “I dunno, a lot?” WHICH WINDS ME UP ‘COS HE’S BEING A PUSSY ABOUT IT AND I SAY “I WANT IT TO ROCK MY SOCKS CLEAN OFF MY FEET, IS IT GONNA DO THAT?” AND HE’S ALL LIKE, “Yeah it will.” SO I’M LIKE, “YEAH I’LL TAKE IT.”


GET IT HOME AND PUT IT ON, TURNING IT UP AND SOME GUY STARTS TALKING TO HIS ‘BABY’ ABOUT FASHION AND I START THINKING ‘WHAT KIND OF NANCY BULL**** HAVE I GOT INTO HERE?’ BUT THEN SOME NOISE STARTS HUMMING AND I START THINKING ‘WHAT KIND OF NOISE RUBBISH HAVE I GOT MYSELF INTO HERE?’ AND THEN AFTER A MINUTE OF GETTING ANGRY COS I GOT BURNED INTO BUYING SOME ARTSY RUBBISH THE BAND KICK IN ALL JABBING RIFFS AND YELLING TIL THEY’RE HORSE AND I GO WILD, SMASHING UP THE ROOM WITH PART ANGER AND PART HXXXXX JOY. MAN, THERE’S LIKE A PIT GOING IN MY LIVING ROOM AND IT’S JUST ME AND I’M TEARING INTO **** AND THE CURTAINS ARE FALLING DOWN AND MOM’S YELLING FROM HER BED BUT I PRETEND LIKE I DON’T HEAR HER CRIES COS I’M GOING APE **** ROCKING OUT AND BEING ALL HXXXXXXCORE AND ****.

BUT SOON I’M GETTING ANGRY AGAIN COS, YEAH, THEY KNOW HOW TO ROCK OUT THESE BOYS DO, SO WHAT I WANNA KNOW IS WHY THEY GOTTA KEEP INTERRUPTING MY SLAM DANCING WITH SOME TECHNO BULL**** OR SOME QUIET BITS AND EVEN, GET THIS, A VIOLIN!! I MEAN, I’M THERE ROCKING OUT LIKE I KNOW HOW AND THEN THERE’S THIS ****ING VIOLIN, AND YEAH, IT’S PLAYING A QUALITY BIT OF A TUNE, BUT WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF SOME OF MY CREW WALKED IN AT THAT MOMENT AND SAW ME ALL SWEATY AND BLEEDING AND LISTENING TO A ****ING VIOLIN??? I’D HAVE TO KILL MYSELF OR ALL OF THEM AS THE SHAME OF IT ALL WOULD BE TOO MUCH.

SO IT WAS TOO STOP STARTY AND ONE MINUTE I WAS SLAMMIN’ ROUND THE LIVING ROOM WITH MOMMA HOLLERING AT ME TO TURN IT OFF AND BRING HER HER MEDICATION AND THE NEXT MINUTE THEY’RE SINGING WITH NO DISTORTION ON THE GUITARS OR DOING SOME JAZZ OR SOME ****, SO I MARCHED BACK TO THE SHOP AND SLAM THE CD DOWN IN FRONT OF THAT SAME WUSSY MOFO AND SAY “MY SOCKS ARE LIKE STILL ON DUDE!” AND HE SIGHS AND TAKES IT FROM ME WITH NO QUESTIONS AND SAYS, “you wanna swap it for something else or do you want cash?” SO I WAS ALL LIKE, “CASH OF COURSE, I AIN’T BUYING FROM A SHOP THAT HAS STICKERS SAYING ‘THIS ROCKS’ ON STUFF THAT DOESN’T.”

SO HE SAYS, “you didn’t like it too much then, I didn’t think you would.” AND I SAID “WHAT THE ****’S THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? I LIKE SOME OF IT, THEY JUST NEED TO KEEP IT INTENSE ALL THE WAY THROUGH NOT JUST WHEN IT SUITS THEM.” AND HE SAYS, ALL ****Y LIKE “well, Refused made this album to move the hardcore scene on as they thought that it was stagnating and lacking ideas and made for people like you who were all about an image and a particular lifestyle rather than open mindedness and expression. They did it, I think, but sadly there will always be people like you who were left behind. I mean, does it get much better than when they come back in after the jazz section on “Deadly Rhythm”? That bit sounds like a brutal attack, it’s insane! Or, or the violin intro to “Tannhäuser”? When those drums come in it’s epic, really groundbreaking for a hardcore record. But, if you didn’t like it…..”


I BARELY GIVE THE GUY TIME TO OPEN THE TILL BEFORE I LIFT IT RIGHT UP FROM THE COUNTER PULLING ALL THE WIRES OUT WITH IT AND CRACK IT OVER HIS HEAD THE PRICK. THEN I PUT IT THROUGH THE WINDOW AND KNOCK OVER A COUPLE OF SHELVES WORTH OF CD’S BEFORE STAMPING ON THE GUY’S HEAD AND LEGGING IT. AS I LEFT I HEARD HIM SHOUT “Philistine!” I’M GONNA GO HOME AND LOOK THAT ****ING WORD UP TO WORK OUT WHETHER THAT LITTLE QUEER HAS GOT ANOTHER VISIT COMING OR NOT.

Wow, I was at the record store the other day, stumbled across that and almost bought it because of the intriguing title/cover. Kind of bummed I didn't now.
