Discuss music of 2013, and the like.

Outside of someone requesting it should be made, I mostly just did this so I could talk about how disappointing the new Yo La Tengo album is. Because, outside of Ohm, and especially Is That Enough, is just awful. I've given it a few gos, and I'm going to try maybe just skipping the 2nd song going forwards because it sours me, but really, it's nothing to write home about at best. Worse than Popular Songs, which is an album that seemingly no one but me liked, and probably the worst Yola's since... New Wave Hot Dogs, like 25 years ago. Or the Condo's album or Murdering The Classics, but I don't count that.

Let's see, what looks good on the horizon

- Eels, don't know what to think about that. It's been a while since they've been very good.
- Frightened Rabbit!
- Jim James
- Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
- Low (produced by Jeff Tweedy!)
- Wavves has a hip-hop album coming out in March
- Azaelia Banks

And a lot of terrible artists doing their annuals, Gaga, The Biebs, Katy Perry, Cher's coming out of freezing to moan something out. Sure more will trickle through as we get closer, and I'm almost certain there's a Radiohead album coming, which would be neat if nothing else.

you would think New Order and Modest Mouse are due. I keep hearing about both bands being in the studio.

As for the Eels not being very good, i thought 2005's Blinking Lights & Other Revelations was great. And their album before that Shootenanny! is my favorite Eels album of all time. Its true their last two have been disappointing, but i still have a lot of hope for E and the crew.

That's more where I am with Eels. Blinking Lights was the last time they were decent, but that's behind Hombre Lobo, End Times and Tomorrow Morning. I do still have hope, Electro-Shock/Daises era Eels was amazing, but he seems to be all like 'waah, my wife left me and now I release everything I write indiscriminately'

Personally, I'm super, super, super excited for Christopher Owens' album. Looooove everything Girls did, so how could this be bad?

Have high hopes for Ducktails (I'm a big fan of Real Estate), and Toro y Moi as well. Yo La Tengo is consistently good, but am yet to give their leaked album a listen. The Knife's first album doesn't do it for me, but Silent Shout is seeeeriously brilliant. High hopes there, too.

Veronica Falls, Iceage, and Nick Cave will put me on the brink of suicide in Feb, for sure. Don't expect much, but I'll check out Kristofferson's album as well. Sally Shapiro is neat too.

Really hoping Madvillain comes out with new stuff. Want new Arcade Fire, TV on the Radio, and will this be the year Modest Mouse and MBV finally come back? pls say yes, bb.

Morbidly curious about the new Black Sabbath and Tool, if they're actually released.

Won't take much to beat 2012, but so far 2013 is looking... promising.

new Toro y Moi is out, and it's just okay. I mean, it's good if you like his style... but his hyping it as being this total pop record... sorta fall on deaf ears for me. Just sounds like more of the same. In fact, it sounds like a total blend between his first two albums, and not some 'pop progression' or whatever he said it would be.

Pretty good, but nothing stands out as being great or something. Could be a grower though.

Simon Collins, son of Phil, has formed a band called "Sound of Contact"; they will be debuting their first album some time this year. Collins spent much of his time working on the album in his hometown of Vancouver (who knew!), though he has since relocated to England. It'll supposedly be a concept album mixing influences from "classic rock," progressive rock, space rock, and other alternative genres.

Posted Image

Here's an excerpt from their official website bio:

http://www.soundofcontact.com/bio/

An incredible amount of spontaneous energy and live studio performance has been captured on the album with a powerful interplay between keyboards, guitar and drums that is reminscent of progressive rock of the ’70s like Genesis, Yes and Pink Floyd yet it has a modern musical quality akin to popular classic rock-influenced alt rock bands of today such as Coldplay, Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Porcupine Tree and Muse.


I have no idea what to expect, but considering Simon's vocals sounds a bit like his father's, it'll be interesting to listen to. If I were to compare their voices, Simon's is thinner and less powerful, sounding the way his father's does now rather than when Phil was in his prime. His band members have worked with Steve Hackett more than a few times before, and Simon has incorporated homages in his previous albums to early Genesis tracks. This tells me they are highly-influenced by the Gabriel-era, so we'll see what happens. It could either be a major disappointment or a success. Here's their teaser for their debut album, "Dimensonaut." The album was produced by Nick Davis, who also was responsible for mixing Genesis' and Mike and the Mechanics' post-1990 albums.

Vampire Weekend's third album is influenced by jazz, Bob Dylan and The Clash according to Rostam Batmanglij.

Posted ImageThe multi-instrumentalist spoke to Uncutabout the forthcoming album, the US band's first since 2010's 'Contra'. Discussing the influences and sounds the band are creating, Batmanglij said: "The goal was to use organic sounds and put them in a context that you might not have heard before. It's certainly darker and grittier than 'Contra'. A lot of these songs are about conflict. They're about the choices we can make, being able to do what we want with our lives."

He added: "With 'Contra' I was interested in a kind of arty, '80's New York sound, but this album goes deeper. It gets into the '50s and some of it sounds like jazz, but broken down into its most basic elements and played in a very simple way. It's more of a subtle kind of complexity and there's an intimacy to the performances, both vocal and instrumental, that are very special. I think the sound of the piano is central to the record."

PLEASE GO ON TOUR

Apparently no tour but a single was just released titled "Where Are We Now?".


David Bowie is celebrating his birthday by releasing new music.


The English singer announced Tuesday, his 66th birthday, that he has released his first song in 10 years titled "Where Are We Now?"


A new album, "The Next Day," will be out March 11 and 12 in the United Kingdom and the United States, respectively.


The slow groove was released on iTunes and in 119 countries. It was produced by longtime collaborator Tony Visconti.


Bowie's last album was 2003's "Reality." The fashion forward singer debuted in the 1960s, releasing multiple successful albums with sounds that range from rock to pop to glam rock to soul and funk.


The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's hits include "Let's Dance," ''China Girl," ''Fame" and "Dancing In the Street."

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

And in the vein of memories of my (misspent) youth after the Bowie post... one word

JIMI HENDRIX

Well two words actually.

Although he died September 18, 1970 the legend lives on.


On March 5th, 2012... 12 previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix recordings from 1968 and 1969 studio sessions will be available as People, Hell and Angels. The legendary guitarist was experimenting with new sounds and musical directions for First Rays of the New Rising Sun, the planned double-album follow-up to Electric Ladyland,

Posted Image

And a single from that coming album has been released.


"Somewhere," Hendrix sits down with Buddy Miles on drums and Stephen Stills on bass for a far-reaching psychedelic blues jam. Recorded in 1968, "Somewhere" rides signature Hendrix wails, long exploratory solos and free-flowing wordplay.

I've seen him twice. All I can say is, if he does another tour, don't freakin miss it!

I'm psyched for Vampire Weekend. Both of their albums are favourites of mine. Add in The National and Nick Cave, and it is sounding like an improvement on 2012 already.

I have doubts that any single album will top Lonerism though.

This is a pretty good underground artist:

Although his most recent music (aside from this song) has been kinda crap...the rest is gold.

There are more Asian ones! But they all rap in Korean so I won't bother posting :lol:

heard that? brilliant

i've been singing Woods' praises since around 2009, but i think the unfortunate reality is the band is yet to top Songs of Shame. How could they? that album is amazing. but their follow up album 'at echo lake' has a few really great tracks on it. i wouldn't say it has filler, but it has a few songs that are easy to forget.

sun and shade was alright, but not as good as the last two.

their album last year, Bend Beyond, was good. I think I only listened to it once.

Woods has brought out an album a year since 2009, I think. So there's lots of material to go through. I'd rank them:

1. Songs of Shame
2. At Echo Lake
3. Bend Beyond (if my brief listen and memory does me any justice)
4. At Rear House (although this might be really good too. I haven't listened to it in ages, but I remember liking it back in the day)
5. Sun and Shade
