    This little obsecure band I doubt you've ever heard of, it's called Nine Inch Nails

    Jokes aside, I also been listening to Andrew W.K, dwelved more into his discography past Get Wet and I found some interesting stuff, did you know Andrew W.K made a song about suicide?




    I also been listening to some stuff from my childhood, Farmer Boys, those guys are barely known.

    My parents kept plaing this video clip to me, it feels incredibly nostalgic and I still like it looking past the nostalgia.

    Charli XCX - Vroom Vroom EP. Songs are awesome... except for Paradise...which is way too bubblegum sweet.

    Best songs are Vroom Vroom and Secret.

    Great cover album. The Maiden covers are the better than the Judas Priest ones. However the Night Crawler cover is awesome shit.

"Primary Colours" definitely sounds 80s, and "Luminous" sounds kinda 70s, to me. they're all over the map, but i like everything they've done. don't know if they'll be able to top the first two albums, though. actually discovered them because trent posted something on the main page of nin.com a few years back about Primary Colours and i fell in love with it.

    meanwhile, i've fallen down a spotify hole. i just keep finding more and more beautiful/heavy music with female vocalists.
    right now i'm really into Sub Rosa.
    i'm not really sure. I mean i JUST discovered it, from the same place you did (well, Trent's youtube channel) and thought it was fucking gorgeous.
    Then i just let youtube play more of the videos for a couple of hours.

    Some of it is definitely harder than the rest and i can see the 60's and 70's, but to me, all of it that i heard sounds like it could have come from the eighties, albiet from different bands. Like some of it reminds me of Echo and the Bunnymen or something and some of it reminds me of the heavier side of Joy Division.

    That first track i heard though, i was thinking "why didn't i fucking think of that?"

    ah, i'm definitely an album person. i don't like doing things on shuffle (unless it's an entire genre, i.e. i put on the "funk" radio section of spotify tonight while making dinner and it was perfect).

    today i listened to two albums by Zombi, Steve Moore's band (he did the score for The Guest & Cub, among other recent films). really good synthy-proggy-retro-sounding stuff, with incredible drumming from his musical partner.

    also finally listened to Phantasmagore, the 2006 follow up to Deadsy's fantastic 1999 album Commencement...it was a bit disappointing. my wife and i both agreed it sounded way more like Orgy than Deadsy, but without the flair of either band during their heyday. oh well.

    Joy Division essentials playlist on Apple Music - I really like NINs version of Dead Souls but never listened to the original til now. Likes what I heard so now I just got the playlist going and I'm liking what I hear so far.

    Also the Smashing Pumpkins version of Transmission does not remotely resemble the original at all.

    It's only been a scant few years, five or six, since I really delved deep into The Cure's discography beyond Disintegration. I've loved (almost) everything through the catalogue. But Faith?

    It's a wonderful feeling when an album you discover well past your formative years really speaks to you, moves you, and manages to become one of the rare "important albums" in your life.

    You need to watch your intake with this; it's powerful stuff. I'm simultaneously relieved and miffed I didn't discover this album as a weepy teenager...it's music for a rainy day, music for mourning, music for wondering why or, if you're in a bad enough mood, as the critics once said of it, "music to hang yourself by". It's paced just right, doesn't overstay its welcome. Only long enough to move you, to suggest, to wound a little, and then it's on its way.

    There really is no other album quite like this one. From anyone.

    I hated Strange House. Well, I found it aggressively disinteresting to me; I didn't hate it. Primary Colours, however, blew me the fuck away. I think I listened to Side A of the vinyl of that LP more than I listened to any other record that summer.

    I was, incidentally, heartbroken when I found out that the Wave Goodbye show I was miraculously granted admission to featured Mew and not The Horrors (and then I was blown away by how fucking awesome Mew is).

    Anyways, then Skying took a more polished turn, but it was pretty awesome in its own right. I think eversonpoe is dead on in that it sounds like it's from the '60s, but a different part of the decade. Like the same place Tame Impala's first two LPs come from, but maybe with a little more acid. And unabashedly British.

    But I thought Luminous was just mind-numbingly dull. I think one song on it got me going at all and, for that matter, it didn't get me going much. Where Strange House was aggressively disinteresting to me, Luminous seemed aggressively uninteresting. It doesn't even have the oomph to repel me. The album it most made me think of was The Veils' Sun Gangs, in which they seem to have received the producer's instruction "Okay, gents--you know all that intriguing stuff you did on the last LP? The weird edges and corners everything seemed to have? We'll we're going to plane all of that off. We're not going to sand afterwards, though; we're not trying to make something smooth. We're just looking to produce a record that people can identify as 'definitely a piece of music.'"

    What I'm saying here is that, despite loving The Horrors, I feel like their last LP was Flanders' family non-fat, unflavored ice-milk. And I hope The Veils comparison holds, because their next LP was undeniably interesting again, regardless of whether or not one liked it.

    i am also an album person @eversonpoe . I just also happen to catch new things on youtube and last.fm and such, things i ordinarily wouldn't find, and this informs my album choices. So the album i need is Primary Colours if it is the 80s vibe that i am liking? @Sesquipedalism ?

    I would say that's the most 1980s-esque one.

    After much debate probably buying my ticket to see Iron Maiden (first time ever) and Ghost (again) in Charlotte, NC is June this weekend. Mediocre seat but oh well.

    I've been listening to Tool since early 2008, and today was the first time hearing this beautiful cover:



    Btw: I've also still never fully listened to Opiate. Is that bad?
