Some music I’ve been listening to this week:
Bill Callahan [aka SMOG]-“Sycamore“
(from Woke On A Whalesheart)
I’ve been on a been Smog kick lately and even though Callahan is starting to release records under his birth moniker…it still is Smog. The most accessible stuff yet from this fine songwriter.
Field Music-“Tones Of Town”
(from Tones Of Town)
I’ve been proselytizing the gospel of Field Music ever since I saw them at Spaceland awhile back.
White Hills-“Glitter Glamour Atrocity”
(from Glitter Glamour Atrocity)
Trippy, rhythmic, psychedelic rock. (If I’m not mistaken they are using samples from the movie “The Corporation” towards the end of this).
Nine Horses-“Money For All”
(from the Money For All ep)
The latest project of David Sylvian (of Japan fame). Whereas Japan’s lyrics were always somewhat oblique towards the end, Nine Horses words are much more rooted in tangible topics (money, greed, politics, etc…). Always loved his voice.
Maximo Park-“Our Velocity”
(from Our Earthly Pleasures)
Maximo Park was another group that I was always trying to push on to people. This is from their forthcoming second album and still rocks out.
Dinosaur Jr.-“Been There All The Time”
This the first Dinosaur Jr. record (with the original line-up) since 1988. So that’s almost 20 years ago. Was it worth the wait? Not really, but some of the songs are quite good.
Feist-“My Moon My Man”
(from The Reminder)
Leslie Feist is just cool.
I think this sounds like Lush. This record continues their movement towards accessibilty.
