Rylan, check out Ariel Bloomer. She was born in Sweden. And, unlike the other girl you posted, she has a very sweet, sexy, quality to her voice. I don't much listen to this kind of music. What is it? Pop punk. Alt metal. Don't know and don't care. These are good songs. Very melodic. I may d/l their album. Anyway, she's kinda cute?

Joe Budden doesn't get enough credit in rap. He has released some great projects and is always overlooked. He is definitely in my top 10 of all time list.

Surprised about the lack of talk about Ian MacKaye's latest project The Evens.

I've heard "World Party" probably 100's of times over the years, but this afternoon WFUV played a live performance of theirs and I was seriously converted.

Ok, here goes. Instead of a Top 20 of songs I included my favorite songs from the respective albums plus a few more from albums that didn't quite make the cut. Guess I don't listen to much "real" "rock" these days. Sorry for being a little excessive.

1. Jessie Ware - Devotion (Wildest Moments, Running, Sweet Talk, Night Light, Taking In Water)
2. Saint Etienne - Words & Music (Over The Border, I've Got Your Music, Last Days of Disco)
3. The Sea & Cake - Runner (On And On, Invitations, New Patterns)
4. Frank Ocean - Channel Orange (Lost, Monks, Sweet Life, Pyramids, Crack Rock)
5. Beach House - Bloom (Wild, The Hours, New Year)
6. Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel (Anything We Want, Left Alone, Periphery)
7. Dexys - One Day I'm Going To Soar (I'm Always Going to Love You, Incapable of Love, She's Got a Wiggle)
8. Grizzly Bear - Shields (Yet Again, Speak In Rounds, Sun In Your Eyes)
9. The xx - Coexist (Swept Away, Tides, Sunset)
10. Bob Dylan - Tempest (Duquesne Whistle, Pay In Blood, Long And Wasted Years)


Songs:

Beak> - Yatton
Boldy James - The Last Two Days
Bonnie "Prince" Billy - I See A Darkness (new version)
Cat Power - Ruin, Manhattan
Dinosaur Jr - Don't Pretend You Didn't Know
Iamsu! - All I Rep
John Cale - December Rains, Living With You
Kardone - Light The Torch
Lambchop - Gone Tomorrow
MNDR - Sparrow Voices, Fall In Love With The Enemy
Nas - Loco-Motive, Daughters, Reach Out (just started listening to it, but it just might eventually make my Top 10)
Patti Smith - April Fool
Orbital (feat. Zola Jesus) - New France
Reina Republicana - Dime qué vas a hacer, Clonidina
Richard Hawley - Seek It
Rick Ross - Party Heart, Mine Games
Sharon van Etten - Serpents
Sufjan Stevens - Christmas Unicorn
Tamaryn - I'm Gone, Prizma
The Weeknd - Montreal


So i've given some time to your best of, that JEssie Ware stuff is pretty amazing. The sea and cake seem a little monotonous, but still extremley enjoying to listen to. The Dylan stuff is just too raspy for me nowadays, the MNDR track is pretty great and I like the Grizzly Bear more than I originally though that I did. I think I just went into it with the thought, if this isn't something spectacular, I'm not interested. It's not better than their last album, but more upbeat and listenable than their first album. I'm just not really into that Frank Ocean album or thatFiona Apple stuff. Tamaryn is also good in smaller doses, like a track here and there, listening to that album in its entirety is sort of a chore for me.

:thumb: Glad you like so much of it. If you like the MNDR song you should check out the whole album. It's pretty good.

I'll try and check out some of the stuff on your list over the weekend.

Did they release another album? I knew they put out 2 already. Not bad, but for those expecting a continuance from the Fugazi era (which I've read in a few reviews) might be disappointed.

Yes, they released an album called The Odds this week. I haven't heard it, though. Truth be told, until recently I didn't even know MacKaye had a new band.

I saw the review on pitchfork, then I saw that they compared one of the songs to sort of traditional Mackaye Fugazi song...it's pretty good, the song that is...not really into the album on first listen.

Yeah, The Evens have been around since mid-2000s. I heard some of the first album, but don't recall hearing much of the second.



Sirius was playing this one right after the first album was released, otherwise I wouldn't have known MacKaye had new material until yesterday. :)

Free download of a remastered Joy Division show?
http://thepowerofindependenttrucking.bl ... ondon.html

In August 2006 I was approached to assist with the sourcing, cleanup and mastering of various Joy Division gigs for inclusion in the then-upcoming double-CD deluxe edition reissues. The in-between story, between first being drafted into the project and then September 2007's Warner Brothers/Rhino release of the Unknown Pleasures, Closer and Still Collector's Editions, is boring and not really worth rehashing.

What is relevant is that six years is a long time ago, with regards to my skill set and general knowledge of audio theory and mastering. I listen to the stuff I turned in to the band and Rhino in late 2006 and essentially cringe. Not because it's bad, because it's not, but with where I've advanced to today my 2006 work sounds amateur to these ears. And while it's out there for the world to enjoy (and the two sets I did, for Closer and Still, all got great reviews), I can no longer listen without wishing for a mulligan.

Well, with my blog avenue, I can finally take that mulligan.

I went back to the original raw transfers from Duncan Haysom's 1980 master cassette tapes, the very tapes on which he recorded the Joy Division gigs that we released. I started from scratch - essentially, if Warners came knocking today and asked me to master these gigs, I did what I'd do for them with the skills, techniques, secret sauces and magic I've either advanced or flat-out learned anew since 2006.

They are spectacular. Not to toot my own horn, but these now simply crush what was used on the 2007 releases. Even the most hearing-challenged of listeners can tell the difference, and not just by minutiae. Cymbals ring, drums go THWACK and not "thwop", guitars slice through the murk.

If there were any justice in this world, Rhino would pull the 2007 sets off the market and reissue with these masterings. One can dream...

So we start, chronologically by performance date, with the set used in association with the Closer Collector's Edition. Recorded by Duncan, this set from the University of London Union is a stormer. You get the still in-development Closer tracks (which had yet to be recorded by Martin Hannett) mixed in with stridently-performed Unknown Pleasures and other pre-Closer choices. You get "Dead Souls" brilliantly leading off the set, and you get "Digital" taking us out. And thanks to Duncan, it's magically captured on C45 tape for us to enjoy 32+ years on.


or if you don't want to read the article and just want the music/

Of the bands I didn't know, Chairlift or Hunx stood out to me. Good stuff. Hunx are like a beefy version of the Beach Fossils or Real Estate. King Krule is really promising. Sounds a bit like an updated version of Orange Juice. Terry Malts is good, too. I'd love to see them live. Oh, and I need to dl the Tanlines album. :thumb:

I feel like Terry Malts is an updated version of the Ramones, that's why I was so into it. I guess Hunx gets labeled under queercore or something like that...either way, always forever is the kind of catchiness that I'm immediately drawn to.

I think I might be an outlier on the Fang Island love, my friend thinks the only reason they get publicity is because Wayne Coyne's relative (nephew I think) is in the band. Orwells have that honed in youthful energy...that's another type of music I get drawn to.
