I'm in a FB group with a dood who is a couple records away from having a complete J Church discography.

Those guys were putting out a 7" every couple weeks at some point. It's no small feat.

"hold my 7" "

2020 albums/songs thread. Kupcho hasn't been around in a while. I'll try and change the thread title on Fridays. Give me your playlist links and I'll add below.    Stereogum most anticipated

In addition to that great Andy Shauf track, here's a few of my favorite new tracks: Feel the Way I Want by Caroline Rose : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3EwDk1zY6g Unchained by Devon Gilf

Hum's reunion album is pretty good if you liked them the first time around.

posted this in the Doc thread... felt like it should get put in front of the music people too- I hadn't seen it before, and it's right in their musical sweet spot IMO...

a bunch of years before Stop Making Sense, RAI recorded the Talking Heads live in Italy (1980). if you like the Talking Heads, it's absolutely worth watching... all the same energy and joy as SMS, without any stage sets or costumes. Movie-wise, I wish they didn't just do closeups... I'd have loved to have seen the whole band play at once- especially with all that energy and joy on stage.

interesting RR today...

Streets with IDLES! (not so great, as it turns out... was hoping for more IDLES ala their Streets mashup, and less Skinner)

GRMLN (another week, another GRMLN tune. was thinking about them/him... I always like the tunes and want to playlist them- just hit the right spots for me- but none of them elevate or stick in my noggin).

GBV

James Blake

Bully

Surfjan Stevens

The Beths

Future Islands

Surfer Blood

The Clientele

DA Stern

Frankie and the Witch Fingers

Throwing Muses (!!!!!... seems to be two tracks released- incredible if they're actual new tracks. this one sounds pretty decent in a shoe-gazey way. paging @Musesboy )

Digging the new Bully album.

Pottery... anybody? NV maybe... cannuck band.

google pushed them on my news feed based on a recent parquet courts search (hoping for new material from them). they're interesting- a bit talking heads meets pile meets omni meets ... dunno. I think I like them.

texas drums pt 1

This didn't hold up for me after diving deeper.

That's what made it so funny. That and I never dug J Church, per se.

They didn't do themselves any favors by putting out so many songs. Or by being Jawbreaker-y while Jawbreaker was active. But, still better than almost all of the Jawbreaker-y bands that proceeded them.

I never got any of those bands in particular, though I was listening to Jets To Brazil the other day and quite liked it. "Speed on your breakfast plate," begins one of their songs. Interesting thought, that one. 

I should probably revisit J Church and Dear You by Jawbreaker sometime. I remember a friend with an astute music mind (think he trained as an engineer at the Hartford Conservatory or something) was surprised I wasn't into any of those types of bands, really. 

I also think it's interesting you're in a Facebook group. Homeowner's association?

It's a 90's punk/hc/emo group. Forget the exact title. I'm an old, man, fb is where we hang out.

I was working while it while it was on in the background and I did not note all of them, but I think it was some of these:

Dope Body

Alien Nosejob

USA Nails (I actually thought this one was IDELS)

Surfbort

Touche Amore

Inevitables

and the new Repalcements!

 

I really liked my RR this week... it was a little rappy, and I have no idea why John WIlliams is there every week, but this is the best one I have had in a while.

It's been giving me Surfbort, but none of the others. And it's fixated on giving me songs weekly from the dirty projectors latest thing, which is not so great. Also get some out there rap- japanese, russian, spanish language and uk grime.

Replacements?!! New, or backissue/rerelease?

I'll give the usa nails a go.

Bumped his own thread (because I'm a loser, baby, and started it a while back) but Aesop Rock has a new track called "The Gates"

True story: I just accidentally watched that video. No clue it was new.

 

ETA: it was bananas

I actually haven't watched it all the way through. I posted it because I've listened to the song at least ten-fifteen times since Rhymesayers announced his album in my inbox yesterday. I'll have to check it out, then. 

eta* indeed bananas. very cool, IMHO.

Despite being squarely in my wheelhouse, the Flaming Lips never seem to land with me. This one is awesome. 

You might want to give The Soft Bulletin another listen.  I agree that this new one is quite good.  One of their best.

I haven't liked a Lips album since Embryonic, but the singles I've heard from the new one are good and I am reading many good things about it, so I will check it out.  Wayne Coyne's voice is done (it was done the last time I saw them live 6-7 years ago), but they do enough studio magic with their trippy effects to hide it most of the time.

The Soft Bulletin through Embronic was a helluva run.

I do like that one and Yoshimi but their output is so insane that they have a low percentage hit rate with me.

it's their best imo. kind of came out of nowhere too considering they were a 1-hit wonder 90s band and they came with something with the sonic and thematic depth of Softest Bulletin

This one is pretty damn good, much tamer than there last few more experimental albums. That being said, Embryonic and The Terror do pair rather nicely with Ketamine.
