I like Foxygen.

I really like Nick Cave.

I really, REALLY like the new Nick Cave album. Been a while since he's exercised such restraint.

Every song sounds fantastic at the beginning, and pretty much loses me at the halfway point.


had the exact opposite reaction in my listening. strongly disliked most songs at the start, then grew to love them as they went. kemosabe especially

Maybe I'll feel different after multiple listens. Kemosabe was my favourite track too.

Back to Nick Cave - We Real Cool is pure concentrated awesome.

pitchfork keeps trashing Thom Yorke stuff, their attitude seems to be "try harder! make more ambitious stuff!"

they basically want the album to sound like afp live. which to be honest i prefer, but i still really like the new album even if it is essentially an eraser follow up.

There's really no need for that T Swift vid to show up in every thread on the boards. We get it.

and of course the new David Bowie is available to stream or download as well.

today is a good day: first day of a long weekend with nothing to do, nowhere to be, and a bunch of new music to listen to.

Simon Collins' band, Sound of Contact, has finally updated their website with news. Previously, it was a blank "coming soon" page:

http://www.soundofcontact.com/news/

Sound of Contact LIVE in Montreal March 24 Opening for Marillion

Posted on February 22, 2013by sound-admin

Sound of Contact will be opening for Marillion at the Marillion Weekend event in Montreal on March 24th, 2013. Tickets are still available! Be the first to hear songs from the new album Dimensionaut LIVE before it’s released!
http://www.marillion...nts.htm#support

The touring line up of the band includes Simon Collins on vocals and drums, Dave Kerzner on keyboards and vocals, Matt Dorsey on bass and vocals with the addition of John Wesley (Fish, Porcupine Tree) on guitar and vocals, and Jonathan Schang (District 97) on drums and additional keys.


At least we know the album is making progress and should be released soon. It'll be exciting to hear what Phil's son can do. The album has a connection to Vancouver as well. Simon is from Vancouver, and the album was recorded here:

In 2010, Simon, Dave, Matt and Kelly went to record at Greenhouse Studios in Vancouver in different trio combinations with engineer Chris Holmes. The music and story of “Dimensionaut” was born.

Joining the team to mix the album was veteran engineer Nick Davis (Genesis, XTC, It Bites) who came from England to Canada to mix at The Warehouse in Vancouver. The album was mastered by Gavin Lurssen and Rueben Cohen of Lurssen Mastering.


Not sure what to expect, but looking forward to it.

After listening to Youth Lagoon's Wondrous Bughouse a few times now, I'm really digging it. At first, I thought it was good but didn't think it compared to The Year of Hibernation. I have definitely changed my mind now though. Wish I could comment more about the individual songs but I've only listened to it without simultaneously looking at the track listing.

Going to have to check out mac demarco now since this is the second time I've heard (seen?) somebody rave about him.

i recommend giving the demarco album a couple listens. maybe it's just me, but i listened to it once and couldn't get behind it at all. deleted it, then for some reason just re-downloaded it the other day, and now i can't stop listening to it

now it's got me on this canadian music kick. can't believe how many solid musicians are coming from canada these days, after what seems like decades of mediocrity

For some reason I didn't enjoy the one Mac DeMarco song , Ode to Viceroy, I heard back in December. As soon as Glassjaw said something about the summer vibes though, something clicked in my head and I loved it when I went back for another listen. I really don't understand how that works, but I won't complain. That guitar work just puts me in a good mood.

not crazy about the new David Bowie, after 2 listens. 2, maybe 3, really good songs, and a bunch that i'm largely indifferent towards. hopefully it's a grower.

I'm almost finished streaming the new Strokes album and it's pretty much all crap. Same level as Angles for me, it has 2-4 good songs but the rest wouldn't even get noticed for any reason if it didn't have the Strokes name on it. I've pretty much completely given up on the hope they will release anything even close to as good as Is This It again........ Julian stop singing in falsetto FFS!! This is just a big crapty sack of disappointment, this sucks i'm actually sad. Why do I keep getting my hopes up over and over again for these guys? They're like a really crapty boyfriend with a chick that just won't give up on him :(((

sometimes i read through the Drowned in Sound forums, and many of them were sold on the new Strokes album. still can't be bothered myself, though.

not a whole lot to be excited about right now

This year is good so far, we're still in March and we have "new classics". I really like new Nick Cave album and The Next Day by David Bowie. I am a big Bowie fan, but I was afraid that by not releasing anything in almost a decade, he'd be mediocre at best. I'm glad that I was wrong. Sure, it's not as good as some of his old stuff like Scary Monsters or Station to Station, but it's still much better than most of today's production.

Another albums I've got the chance to listen to this year:
Low - The Invisible Way
This one is actually quite good, their last album c'mon was a bit of letdown for me, so I am glad that they made up their reputation. :D

Woodkid - The Golden Way
I anticipated that this album could be a good one, with slightly different sound than what is offered even in the alternative radios, but the structure of songs are way too similar, as well as the arrangements (overuse of strings, brass and heavy percussions). It should have been at least a bit more minimalistic like Baltimore Fireflies or Brooklyn, but no, every song tries to sound like his hit Iron...

For progressive rock/metal enthusiasts it's a pretty good year too. New album by Polish band Riverside (I especially recommend their 2007 album Rapid Eye Movement) has the atmosphere a bit like Porcupine Tree's Fear of a Blank Planet, but the music is great and original, although a bit softer than before (that's not a problem).

Steven Wilson - The Raven That Refused to Sing
Now this is tough one. I didn't like his previous solo album. I felt that it was dull for me. But this one is interesting although it's nothing that you'd like on the first spin. It's a difficult music, but also a grower. Especially the title song grew on me:



Apart from that I am looking forward to new album by Tricky and I've got Daughter debut (she had two great EPs in last few years), but I haven't got a chance to listen to it.

I really like "The Raven That Refused To Sing", Grain. What a gorgeous song. I wonder, though, if I would have liked it as much without the incredible video. I honestly felt tears coming, a couple of times, during the video. I thought 8 minutes was going to be a long haul, but, the music comes at you in waves and crescendos... the dynamics are brilliant and I love the arrangement.

New Bowie is good. I need to listen to it more. I hope it grows on me.
