i think it wondrous that while looking on rateyourmusic for an instrumental album to nominate for the General Album Club....i just happen to come across a list by someone of all the band he's played with......and in that list come across this band whose album cover struck me as interesting.....dowloaded it and loved and already at least two people are looking into them

just puts a smile on my face

i guess according to last.fm this is the band from San Diego not from Bristol and they spell their name in all caps.....i hope you both enjoy it.....

Firstly, I'd like to point out, this is very VERY 1991 in both sound, and humor. Brought me a nice little bit of nostalgic joy for the era I barely remember.

Secondly, I liked it. Especially the song 'Automaker'. Mostly a rather straight noise metal type band, but I liked the little jumps here, and there, and the odd strangely transposed prerecorded clips.

My only major gripe is the production was piss poor. Very staticy, but not abrasive enough to justify such a flat timbre. In one hand, it adds to the cynical attitude, on another, it waters it down. Not enough for me to enjoy it as I did, though.

Once I get things sorted out, I'll send another to somebody. I'm looking at Mondo Bungle because I think I get his tastes, and feel I could open his world a bit.

Always wanted to send something over to this Mondo Bungle character. If Zappa, and Bungle are your tastes, no reason not to enjoy Thinking Plague's 'In This Life...'. By far one of the most excellently crafted 'Avant-Prog' albums in the history of man.

I'm having a hard time finding some stuff I really enjoy, so I'm putting on all of you to help me out. I really wish I was able to say specifically what I like, but I honestly have no idea. I mean, today I listened to Das Racist, Burial, The Saddest Landscape, and Max Richter, which are four of my absolute favorite artists. I hope that helps. I also enjoy stuff like:



But didn't enjoy the whole album. This specific song on the other hand, could end up being one of my all time favorites. I knew it from the first time I heard it. The vocal samples, the tone, and the imagery it evokes are just so beautiful. For whatever reason, I hear a similarity in tone to another one of my favorite songs:



It could just be me though. I think what I'd like is something warm, something soft, but not overly so. I don't wanna be put to sleep. I want some kind of energy or emotion or drama or... something. Help me out friends!

For CanwllCorfe then!



My album of the year so far, seems like something you may have an interest in. It's got soft, dreamy qualities, but at the same time, trembles with rage. Somewhere between These New Puritans' Hidden and Dead Can Dance's Spiritchaser.

For Mr.D00D who I know would appreciate this:

Also, can anybody supply me with an album that sounds like this:

Thank you so much Skali...

I'll be sure to dig in tomorrow when I'm not using a crappy public wifi connection!

As per your Bill Laswell request, are you looking for more Bill Laswell like that or other artists albums like that one?

I'm not particularly familiar with that album, but I have a couple nice Bill Laswell involved albums. I'll probably check out the Laswell you posted tomorrow as well and see if I can get back to you with a recc.

Also gotta check out your recc to Mondo Bungle, Thinking Plague. I've heard about them a few times. It's high time I check them out.

Thanks again for thinking of me by the way

Albums like that. Laswell himself is too all over the place to request recommendation.

Since I'm in a giving mood:

To Vegangelica:

This album is a tough sell with most MBers, but seems like it might be right up your alley. It's one I truly cherish:

Quote:


Lindsay Cooper - Rags
To Janszoon:

I know you're a fan of long extended chaotic instrumental pieces, but tire of he sanitation of the more Yes-derrived world of prog. Not sure if you'll enjoy this, or not, but it's worth a shot:

Quote:


Eskaton - 4 Visions
To DoctorSoft:

Know you like metal, here's some metal.

Quote:


Athiest - Piece of Time.
I'll send more if I can think of them.

Alright... I know that you struggle a bit with enjoying hip hop, and I also know you're a fan of the No Wave scene. So... you could always give this album a shot. Both Arto Lindsay and Marc Ribot played a huge part in the creation of it.
