What's up?


New No Doubt is lame - that's what!


This should come as no surprise to anyone.

Rocksteady was actually a really good album. Liked every song except the main single.

But yeah, they're old now, and they sound every bit like it.

2013 is even more interesting now.

Christopher Owens (main guy behind Girls) has a solo album coming out in very early 2013.

Lots of other stuff to expect from Yo La Tengo, Toro y Moi, Black Sabbath, Pearl Jam, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against the Machine (apparently). Mercury Records have said that Metallica, U2, and Arcade Fire will also be releasing new albums.

The prolific Bradford Cox will likely put out another Atlas Sound or Deerhunter album, and hopefully Modest Mouse will do something too. My Bloody Valentine have a number of tour dates for 2013, so hopefully their new stuff will be released too. Broken Bells apparently have some stuff lined up. MF DOOM and Madlib should have Madvillain's sequel ready soon, too.

Looking ahead already.

oh my I didn't know My Bloody Valentine was touring again! Kind of lukewarm to most of the rest, NIN, PJ, Soundgarden, so forth. I know enough that I'm old without having bands from my teen years dropping new albums. Yo La Tengo, Brad Cox and Chris Owens is really exciting though.

Also, kind of curious what Arcade Fire will do. Their work is getting worse, and the reviews are getting better, so I assume this album will be just terrible/sell ALL of the copies.

And here I thought 2012 would give us a new Queens of the Stone Age album. Silly me. I mean, it's only been FIVE years!

As far as 2013 goes, new Arcade Fire and new Rage is always boner worthy.

most don't interest me either, but i know a lot of people around here dig that 90s stuff and classic rock, so i threw them in. and apparently it's the original (or very early) sabbath lineup, so i guess it's interesting in that regard. but it'll suck, i'm sure

MBV tour is only announced for Japan, I think, nowhere else. But maybe it'll lead to more.

I wouldn't say Arcade Fire is getting worse, myself. You thought Neon Bible is better than The Suburbs? Sure, they'll never top the artsy, pure aspects of their debut, but The Suburbs was their most enjoyable album for me. But then again, even my mom loved The Suburbs, so you know something's up then. I played Funeral out so hard when it first came out, I can't even listen to it anymore

and Yo La Tengo is probably older than Soundgarden, PJ, NIN, etc. The only difference is YLT is consistent and actually good. Although lots would say PJ is still good, I dunno, haven't heard anything from them in a while.

NIN Is always embarrassing though. Hearing Reznor whine like he's 24 still. Yuck. I hate that super angsty stuff.

Speaking of old bands, Depeche Mode is also releasing a new album and doing a proper tour. Not sure I'm a fan of their work though. A few good songs, but not my thing.

And there's also Foals, Eminem, Black Keys, Lady Gaga, and a billion other acts you'll hear on commercials too. Usually 'indie' stuff isn't announced until a month or two before its release, so it's hard to project how good it'll be.

heres what ive been lsitening to lately:

Metric - Synthetica : excellent album, almost as good as Fantasies. Great live band too, but im going to miss their upcoming show.

Van Morrison - No Plan B: Born to Sing : Very good album as well. Hes really aged well. Its no 'Back on Top' or 'Astral Weeks' but its warm and jazzy and everything i like about him

Bob Dylan - Tempest : Very strong album. Strong songwriting, melodies, lyrics, what weve gotten from him since Time Out of Mind. Too bad his live show sucks, i went to the recent show, and he had no fan rapport, and played 10 sloppy songs that i didnt recognize in a row (and i know the new albums!)

Mystery Machine - Western Magnetics : Anyone one remember this local Canadian band? they got a bit of airplay in the 90's. Well they are playing together again. Album starts off strong, but after about the 4 track becomes forgettable. If youre not familiar with them i would get thieir first album 'Glazed', killer album of melodic thrash rock.

A.C. Newman - Shut down the streets : Meh, the stuff he writes for the New Pornographers is much better.

Swans - The Seer : I admire their epic intentions with this album, but not really my thing, kinda creepy stuff actually.

Soulsavers - the light the dead see : I was recommedned them on another board bc im such a fanboy of Mark Lanegan (and he contributes a couple tracks to this). Features Depeche Modes Dave Gahan singing. Not a memorable album unfortunately.

Royal Thunder - CVI : Black sabbath like heavy metal but with female vocals. I like it, and the instumentation rocks out.

I started listening to all their albums starting with the first Kyuss album. One album a week in hopes something comes soon. Although the new single "Nobody to love" is growing on me.

Can't say I'm a fan of any of this stuff (not even Swans, unfortunately), but I agree on the Dylan summary. I think the lyrics on this album are some of his best, ever. I love the violent, bleak, and haunting imagery. Some songs are pretty weak (not a fan of Roll on John musically or lyrically, and the title track doesn't do a whole lot for me either). But the opening five tracks are great, imo.

re: MBV, well that's just awful news for me.

re: Arcade Fire, I did think Neon Bible was better than The Suburbs. Even with a few years retrospect, I didn't get the hype of that album, nor do I understand why it was the one that launched them into the kind of Grammy-Award-Winning-Stardom that they currently act like complete tools about having received, but I still believe they're a band who can write good music.

re: YLT vs Soundgarden, I know how long YLT has been around for sure, but like you said, pretty consistently making music, whereas Soundgarden has the feel of the Smashing Pumpkins revival. Members go on to make a worse band (Zwan/Audioslave) with members of other popular bands (Slint/Rage) then go solo and do a terrible cover of a song I love (To Love Somebody/Billie Jean) before eventually realizing that the only way they'll ever be at the top of the marquee is to go on a Greatest Hits tour and put out a new album, quality be damned. I hope they prove me wrong, because I would be satisfied with even another Down On The Upside quality album.

re: NIN, yeah, it's hard to relate to the unkempt rage of a bloated 40-something year old screaming in vagueries about how disappointing life is. We get it, you're very, very rich but also very, very unhappy.

Speaking of old bands, Depeche Mode is also releasing a new album and doing a proper tour. Not sure I'm a fan of their work though. A few good songs, but not my thing.

I really enjoyed DM's Playing The Angel album (2005). Probably one of the best albums of their career. I recommend giving it a listen. (Although, the songs that David doesn't sing are gay-er than ever. Give it up, Martin.)

I caught them at GM Place for that tour, and it was a fantastic show as well. I'd say they produced the best sound I've experienced in a stadium - crisp, clean, full, perfect volume, etc.

I had been excited for their last release, The Sound of The Universe (2009), but I didn't like it much when it came out. But I have found myself going back to it since, and some of it has grown on me a lot. Wrong and Hole to Feed are now 2 of my favourite songs of theirs. Still wrapping my head around half of the album though.

So...yeah...I'm looking forward to the new one.

Some great stuff going on in the new Bat For Lashes. The overdramatics are dialed back a bit, which is a welcome adjustment.

The last one, Two Suns, was a decent album. But I could barely stand Fur and Gold...except for that Trophy song - that was (and still is) the shiznit!

I loooove the new Bat for Lashes. The late Sharpshooter dismissed it as bad "emo music," but I think it's legitimately amazing. I was surprised by the "good" (but not great) critical reception.

Marilyn is phenomenal!

I tried listening to the new Neil Young album, and it's good-ish, but intimidating. The opening track is more-or-less a 30 minute jam. It's a good song, but I can't say I find myself in the mood to listen to 30 minute jams very often, unless they're amazing (like the Beck - Philip Glass rework intro song!)

Between you and me, Sharp never knew quite as much as he thought he did. Of course, there may not be a man on earth who knows as much as Sharp thought he knew...

Any Andrew Bird fans here? Listening to Hands of Glory right now - his second album of the year. I think this may be out-takes of Break It Yourself. A bit more low-fi...almost sounds like one of his live albums. I'm totally diggin it.

My favourite song off of BIY (and possibly song of the year) is Orpheo Looks Back. (The violin work on that is among the best I've ever heard.) But on this one, there is a stripped-down version simply called Orpheo. Although missing the string-virtuosity, the rest of the song is haunting - dare I say better? Maybe not, but I'm wondering if both versions make my Top 10...

New Flyleaf album (Oct 30th) is pretty great, much better than their last outing (an EP I think), Great Love in particular

New Kamelot album (Oct 27th) is good as well, though I haven't had a chance to listen to it a whole lot yet. Despite having a new singer, I'm liking the music.

I've always thought Andrew Bird was one of those guys who makes music for young girls. Like Mumford and Sons, but with more credibility or something. I dunno. Maybe I should actually check out his music?

Re-listened to Ty Segall's Slaughterhouse. Soooo good.

I'm about to be bounced out of the BEST CDC USER contest by some 15 year old kid whose name I've never seen before. I'm not sure if I should be grateful or depressed or totally indifferent.
