Genrepalooza 3: Playlists are done, phwew

Recommended Posts

Not doing all the categories right now 'cause I'm lazy, but some late picks.

Trip Hop
Massive Attack, Special Cases

Struggled to come up with post-2000 trip hop, I'll be honest.

Aussie/Kiwi
Tiny Ruins, How Much

('Cause I've picked the Avalanches often enough (still luv u lads))

2000s Film Theme
Jonny Greenwood, House of Woodcock (Phantom Thread)

Gorgeous score.

2000s Film Song
Benoit Charest, Belleville Rendez-Vous (Les Triplettes de Belleville)

Awesome song from a fantastic French animated film. 

Canada
Broken Social Scene, 
Pacific Theme
Love BSS and I kinda lost track of how many times I've picked their stuff in past drafts, but it was plenty. Going with a less obvious choice here, at least.

Word. I remember choosing between Bloc Party and We Were Promised Jetpacks for my last pick. 

Which did you choose? The Spotify playlists seem behind.

I chose Blue LIght, I think, but it was unofficial. NV chose...what did NV choose? I just remember seeing it and noting the band. I forget, at this point. We chose a bunch.

eta* We made a bunch of unofficial picks, not "chose a bunch" from each band.

I swear this must've played at damn near every indie party I went to down here for, like, five years.

Yeah.  :kicksrock:

I don't seem to have as much Internet time as I did when I was working.  Updating playlists used to be a good mindless activity when I was listening in on concalls.

Not your fault man, we all own this draft with you and could have taken better care of the playlists.

Post punk that I don’t think got posted and yet it’s elite 

Bloc Party- Banquet

Interpol- Obstacle 1

Kings of Leon- King of the Rodeo

If someone said these were the 3 best post punk revival songs, I might believe them 

 

A couple more favorites that I don't think were selected:

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Love Burns (2000)

French Films - White Orchid (2013)

Extra picks.

Wild Nothing, Blue Wings (2019 Song)
Just love their sound, and this new one is a hit.

Dehd, Lucky (2019 Song)
Fun fun fun song and great video.

Hatchie, Without a Blush (Aussie/Kiwi)
Already took one of hers this draft, but I'm shameless.

Cut Copy, Hearts on Fire (Aussie/Kiwi)
Big and obvious, but it's awesome.

The Naked and Famous, Punching in a Dream (Aussie/Kiwi)

Up early again. Bruins win took it out of me. I've now drafted a bunch of Scottish bands, who might or might not be happy with being part of the UK. Herewith the songs...

Genre - UK

Artist - LIfe Without Buildings (Scotland)

Song - Juno

or

New Town

Damn Pitchfork. Back when they were still breaking tastes, they tried to break this band. Unsuccessfully, as it were, as the band broke up after this album. But while I can often quibble with the taste-makers, this time they hit. This Scottish band with the sing/spoken word/poetry vox sounded pretty good for a slightly burnt-out guy in his late twenties, just starting to mellow but needing a little punk/angularity in his guitars still. Anyway, on re-listen, these songs are probably the most representative of their brief moment in the sun, which went from critical indie darlings to quick break-up. I have no idea what happened to the band after that (no idea if the Pfork love came before or after the break-up), but they're the first post-2000 UK band that jumped to mind for me.

Genre - Live

Artist - Mogwai (Also Scotland)

Song - My Father My King (Northampton, MA, 05 Sept. 2003)

Live in 2016: https://youtu.be/8kLJp28usdk

Yes, I've drafted them before, but this goes without saying...

So I saw these guys at a club in Northampton, Massachusetts, straight off of their flight from Europe, the first date of their North American Happy Songs For Happy People tour. It was the best show I've ever been to. Mogwai, noted for the occasional ferocity of their live show, played all their burners released theretofore that night. Holy ####, customs must have pissed them off. Anyway, this song, recorded on wax by Steve Albini, who miraculously managed to #### it up (yes, I said that. And mean that. Fugazi thought he ####ed up In On The Kill Taker enough to get a different engineer, too) and make it sound muted, was unleashed live, and it sounded like nothing I'd ever heard. It was, like a European soccer match, almost responsible for babies that night, but instead we wound up with a bouncing baby simple screen name and subsequent avatar in homage. Simply put, it changed my life, this religion-inspired song and set. It ripped. Left a deep rumbling in my chest and heart, as all things great should.

Here is the set list:https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/mogwai/2003/pearl-street-northampton-ma-3bf2480c.html

This is a live sample of each song played during the best show I've ever seen (the Northampton set in 2003) hidden in the spoiler because of space concerns and thread continuity.

Checking in after some time off, and it appears we have failed to select two of my favorite Canadian artists.

 

Claire Boucher-Musk - "World Princess Part II"

I'm 99% sure I've drafted this before, because it's become my favorite Grimes song despite it being a relative deeper cut, but I'm too lazy to look it up.

Also thanks to every mentioned/drafted The Deftones. I hadn’t heard White Pony since college and now I’ve been working out to it for several days! Such a good hard rock album. Love these drafts. 

Had this in the car all week.  One of the best albums of the 00s for sure.

Late night spotlight:

Genre - UK

Artist - Seafood ft. Monsoon Bassoon

Song - Folksong Crisis

Loved this track when it came out. The breakdown at about 2:15 or so into it makes the song.

More spotlighting of a previous category during downtime. I did the category an injustice the first time around, and I've never drafted this person. If this young woman isn't represented in the best of this decade, I think we're really missing the heck out. A nice little deep cut with a wonderful lyrical twist:

Genre - Aus/New Zealand

Artist - Lorde

Song - Liability

I'm not the best for movie songs.  I pay a little attention to the score, but mostly seem to avoid movies that have singing in them.   A couple that came to mind when I saw those categories:

Eddie Vedder - Guaranteed

 

My 4 year old final discovered Frozen, so I have listened to that on a loop for the last 2 months.  It just breaks my heart when she sings "we used to be best buddies..." 

Do You Wanna Build a Snowman

dude, why weren't you in the punk draft?

was listening to the punk playlist tonight and really dug this one (apparently again, since I previously liked that post and completely forgot about it)

Took a long hiatus from the various music drafts. I didn't even know there was a punk draft going on.

UK: Laura Welsh- Breath Me In

This really hits all those old Sade notes that I love

 

...and speaking of old Sade

Soldier of Love

Sade released an album in 2000 and in 2010.  If she has something planned for 2020, it'll be up there with the presidential election, the next 007 movie and the end of Jeff Samardzija's contract as my most anticipated events of the year.

I don't recall the previous Genrepaloozas having such a large disparity.  The categories are probably more to blame than the dice.

Even my Roots song references Sade so I’m very much in on this Sade run here.

Time to make it three picks for another band. No I don't care that all three are picked by me, plus I spotlighted at least two other times before it was allowed. In any case, they are #1 on my wish list of bands I need to see and I'm seeing them Monday. Very excited.

I've long held that despite critical opinion, their best album is actually Room on Fire, not Is This It. Watching Youtube concert videos tonight, nothing really gets the crowd going like this one.

Afterhours - Reptilia - The Strokes - Rock

This pick got me to go back and listen again to this album, which I really liked when it came out. I dig it more now. Great choice, great band.
