New Music Friday - 9/13/19

Post by ujnhunter » Mon Sep 16, 2019 10:08 am

Little late... but no one else made a post. I enjoyed listening to both Pixies “Beneath the Eyrie” & Chelsea Wolfe “Birth of Violence” on Friday night. I may give the Alice Cooper "Breadcrumbs" cover song EP a listen at some point... and I missed Iggy Pop's “Free” from last week which I plan on giving a spin here soon.

I listened to a bunch of stuff on Friday, most of it good, nothing really blew me away though.

Probably my two favourites:
Gruff Rhys - Pang!
The Utopia Strong (spacy modular synth-prog band with snooker champion Steve Davis in the band!)

Also checked out:
(Sandy) Alex G - House of Sugar
Maybe Don't
Long Beard - Means to Me
Jenny Hval - The Practice of Love
Djo - Twenty Twenty (Steve from Stranger Things' band!)
Junk Whale

Metronomy and Charli XCX still on my list for stuff I might check out...

thanks for picking this up!

This morning I listened to a new Weezer song and a new Green Day song.

Weezer - same boring pop, new wanky bits and bobs.
Green Day - same attitude, new production

The Weezer song was like adding rainbow sprinkles to vanilla ice cream, they don't actually taste different, but it has a slightly different look. The new Green Day was a departure from the polished punk we've been getting. It was muddy, distorted and interesting. The message was the same: greed is bad. If I had to listen to one or the other again, it would be Green Day, all day.

I listened to a bit of Metronomy and Charli XCX last night, I was enjoying Metronomy until about seven or eight tracks into the album where the energy levels seriously dropped and didn't seem to recover. I exercised my "four bad tracks in a row and I'm out rule" that I just made up, and switched. Charli didn't even get that far, I thought the first couple of tracks were decent modern pop but then '1999' came around and that song is SO annoying.

Yeah, I listened to the Iggy Pop album (from 9/6/2019, sorry!) last night and while a couple songs were interesting... much of the album seemed to be "spoken word" type stuff over weird "future jazz" background music... and it seemed really socially charged... but I'm confused about which side of the fence Iggy is on... I'm not sure what to think, maybe that is the point? Hrmmm...

I just finished breathe by Tiny Moving Parts. It is a decent emo record. A lot of the folks I know and play music with would like it. I listened to the entire Metronomy album but didn't think it was all that engaging. They had one song I liked called Upset my Girlfriend:

I used to play drums in
I used to play drums in a rock and roll band
But they kicked me out
'Cause I used to feel it
And so I would speed up
