How is the new Autechre anyway? I have Oversteps on vinyl and was eyeing this latest one as well.
The new Thurston Moore does sound much better or at least more consumable to my ears than the "YokoKimThurston" (Yoko Ono, Kim Gordon, Thurston Moore) album from last fall. That one almost belongs in the weird album section..
Atoms For Peace - Amok, release date of Feb.25. You can listen to it here. Enjoy!
Fans of the Americana duo The Civil Wars and / or T-Bone Burnett will want to check out the new soundtrack album from the film A Place at the Table which was released today. It is my understanding that The Civil Wars are on hiatus, so it is unknown how much material will be available from them in the future. This new album contains 14 songs. Some of the tracks are by The Civil Wars, some are by T-Bone Burnett, and some are by a combination of the two. Here's a track listing:
|1. Mississippi Delta - T Bone Burnett|
|2. Long Time Gone - The Civil Wars & T Bone Burnett|
|3. Uptown Brown's - T Bone Burnett|
|4. Focus (Rosie's Theme) - The Civil Wars|
|5. At the Table - T Bone Burnett|
|6. The Need - The Civil Wars & T Bone Burnett|
|7. Long Time Gone (Dustbowl Version) - The Civil Wars & T Bone Burnett|
|8. Food Deserts - T Bone Burnett|
|9. Jonestown Elementary (Tremonica) - T Bone Burnett|
|10. Getting Worse - The Civil Wars|
11. Barbie at the Bodega - The Civil Wars
12. Witnesses to Hunger - T Bone Burnett
|13. I Do Exist - T Bone Burnett|
|14. Finding North - The Civil Wars|
Won't post the cover art because of OMG TASTEFUL NUDITY but I've really been loving
Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds: Push the Sky Away
It lacks the bombast of your typical Nick Cave release, but as a moody, darkly funny nocturnal listen it is really absorbing stuff.
Edit: Well in that case!
See post # 52...
Palma Violets - "180"
The new Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, or should I say NC with The Birthday Party.. Yup, these very young guys really pulled it of and it's amazing the way they combine pure energy, frustrations, unique/blended song writing into a very original and a coherent album.. Incl. a few AM hits...., one for sure.. Plenty of reference to explore as well.. Huge thumbs up.. and IMO it's a killer album.. Young kids, give them a break...
Was just looking around on Amazon and found out about some new upcoming releases:
Autechre - Exai (3/5)
Depeche Mode - Delta Machine (3/26)
Dido - Girl Who Got Away (3/26)
How To Destroy Angels - Welcome Oblivion (3/5)
Hypocrisy - End of Disclosure (4/2)
Killswitch Engage - Disarm The Descent (4/2)
Phoenix - Bankrupt (4/23)
Soilwork - The Living Infinite (3/5)
The Knife - Shaking The Habitual (4/9)
Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City (5/7)
OutRun - Kavinsky
Been waiting for this one for years, though I already knew 7 of 13 tracks before the release. Still a great album. Of the tracks new for this album Roadgame would have to be the best.
