Title: Try some new music. . .
Post by: bigperm on August 11, 2004, 09:08:54 AM
Here's some off-beat new musical releases some of you folks might enjoy.

The Album Leaf- Opened for Sigur Ros a few times and are very mellow. Excellent writing music or late night weariness. I like it, and I believe the album is still streaming here- http://www.albumleaf.com/

Mark Lanegan- Former Screaming Trees singer and had a brief stint with Queens of the Stone Ager in case you didn't know, this is pretty good, PJ Harvey sitting in on a few tracks and really only two songs i didn't enjoy, but it's streaming here- some dutch site- http://www.vpro.nl/3voor12/luisterpaal/luisterpaalalbum.shtml?10617791+18614877

King Kahn & The Shrines- It's simple, if you dig old school soul, listen to this. Here a few songs at his site. http://www.hazelwood.de/kingkhan/index.php

Okay rap fans (P- please listen)- keep your eyes peeled for this, out September 7th I think from the Def Jux label, ROB SONIC the album "TELICATESSEN".  Man it's good, and unique.  Futuristic sound and a fresh flow, also in the group Sonic Sum, but that's another thread. Anyway this album is good. Trying to find some samples, I'll update if i do- but read more here-
http://www.definitivejux.net/jukies/rob_sonic/
Actually go here, he had a track on the last Def Jux Comp- Listen to DSYLEXIA here- http://www.tunes.co.uk/tunes/featured/8350.html

sorry for the big pics, just wanted to share. Overall decent year for music, obviously some big releases, and many to come. Tom Waits soon, New Guided By Voices is excellent, and the new Black Keys is perfect. If this sort of thread is not appropriate, I won't do it again, just trying to spread the wealth. Take it easy all.

Sorry one more-

Anyone hear Rogue Wave yet? www.roguewavemusic.com is their site, I think. I saw them at the Shins concert and they had a nice sound. subpop's website has a song for d/l, "endless shovel."

takagi masakatsu's new cd+dvd release 'coieda' (http://homepage.mac.com/utono/COIEDA/COIEDA.html) is very impressive; anyone who enjoys abstract melodic electronic music should listen. also included is several videos by masakatsu which are equally interesting.

If you like Tom Waits and Aimee Mann....try out Sam Phillips' (http://www.samphillipsmusic.com/) A Boot And A Shoe. I just saw her live the other night and she is AMAZING, and so is this CD.

And if you're feeling really adventurous, check out Joanna Newsom's The Milk-Eyed Mender.

I love this LP... I bought it last month and I'm in love with it's whimsical feeling and hearing the harp in such a way.  She's playing in Des Moines next Friday and I'm going to see her... I'm very excited.   I'm making my friends act excited too  :-D

I've actually been listening to a lot of Joanna Newsom, specifically Yarn and Glue and Walnut Whales. Her harping is amazing, I absolutely love it, but to love it I must first get over her scathing voice. It's a little too much at times, but I love her nonetheless.

Haha, thanks. Man I'm really trying, I've been racing to get so much music lately. I feel like I'm years behind. For instance, Sigur Ros, Rufus Wainwright, Broken Social Scene, Mogwai, and Iron and Wine have only recently caught my attention, but I fucking love all of them. Thank god I have a bunch of musically-sound friends.

Now do I have anything to recommend...hmmm. I'm not a fan, but I have a friend who adores Sufjan Stevens. I don't know if he would qualify as "new music" for you folks. Also, Micah P. Hinson is great, his cd's an import so it's expensive.

SO DO I.   :yabbse-thumbup:

"A Sun Came" is actually an older one of his (maybe his first?).  I'd recommend "Greetings From Michigan" to someone checking his music out for the first time, and last year's "Seven Swans" is utterly amazing.

Here's a cool interview with him from 2004:

I don't know how "rare" or "new" these bands are, I've just been jammign to them lately, and not so many people around me know who they are...

Yes, that version of A Sun Came is the reissue of his first CD (it kind of sucks).  Then he did a pretty cool electronic kind of album called Enjoy Your Rabbit, then the grandiose and excellent Michigan, and then Seven Swans which was a way more low key version of what he did last.

I should've known a man with your good taste would be a Sufjan Stevens fan.   :-D   I've heard his first two albums described much as you describe them...  "Michigan" and "Swans" are among my favorites, but I probably won't go back and hear the older ones.  I can't wait to hear what he does next, though.

It's rumored he seriously has planned an album for every state, Illinois should be next, out this year.  We shall see.

I have his christmas stuff, which is great as well.

P.S.

On the female vibe, some of you digging Joanna Newsom, or even Mirah, may enjoy this:
(http://www.musicunderwater.com/feist_let_it_die_files/image002.jpg)
Feist "Let It Die"

not promising anything, but worth a look IMO.

And any indie rockers, seek out Ulysses "010" quickly becoming addicting.

And any rap folks out there, please hear the Rob Sonic album "telicatessen" and go back and seek out the Non-Prophets "Hope"- just two great rap/hip-hop albums, we gots to spread the wealth. And on the same label as Non- Prophets "lex Records" check out SUBTLE "a new white" you may be surprised.

If there are any Manitoba fans floating around, just a reminder, they are now called Caribou, the new album is "the Milk of Human Kindness" between that and the new M83 "Before the Dawn HEals us" I'm satisfying my Blade runner vibes for a taste fo the future.  go check it out.

Is he really going through with another "state" album?  That should be very interesting, esp. once he gets beyond the states he actually knows very well.

I've heard a couple of his Xmas songs and they're terrific!  Where did you find those?
