Chipmunks On 16 Speed - Sludgefest


This version of Call Me, Refugee, You Keep Me Hanging On, and My Sharona are regular listens for me. Not quite as fond of the rest, but it's all still oddly great.
Heaven Is A Place On Earth here sounds so god damn bleak.

and I'll never get over how good Refugee sounds here
absurdly, mindblowingly massive

THEODORE, WHAT DO THOSE WORDS REALLY MEAN?
BEATS ME!


Helll yeah, Refugee is stunning. Besides the morosely guttering guitars, those Mellotron swells and the primal drumming give a blistered-black New Dawn Fades/So Alone deathrock funereality. And the vocals, can't say better than it sounds like Johnny Thunders himself at the mic. So plaintive.

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must've kicked you around some...

The Chipmunks sample makes me imagine a Muppets Show performance. :lol:

You Keep Me Hangin' On is my second-favourite, it takes on a sublime combo of longing and fury. :mrgreen:

wanted to make it clear that I think it's rad.

listened again a bit. Walk Like and Egyptian is fascinating. i checked out the second outing, and it's a lot cleaner, but Betty Davis Eyes and Fame are worth it

was also surprised to find this is a guy from nova scotia


it's hard to believe that all of these tracks are just the alvin and the chipmunks slowed down to 16. which album was Walk Like and Egyptian from? i don't even remember that as a chipmunk tune and it was one of my favorite songs as a kid.

Kinda reminds me of Vaporwave a bit. Same concept, really.

Well, just when I was thinking Marilyn Manson had put out his first decent-sounding album in many years and I might have to pick it up....
Brian Warner - he's not the Antichrist Superstar, he's a very naughty boy.

I read about that the other day. Shameful. I'm honestly not that surprised? Cake And Sodomy is a cool song, though.

He was an intelligent and articulate guy in the early days. I remember reading his Bio around the time of Antichrist Superstar and thinking that either A) it was made up, or B) it would come back to bite him in the ass. I honestly thought a lot of it was a calculated thing, but seems he's bought into his own shtick over the years. Book mentions Reznor heavily, I expected him to speak out before he got dragged into it.

Ah well, fuck the guy, plenty more music out there.

I just listened to Burning Down the House, after never once thinking about it for over 22 years. Kind of sounds like a large, dying squirrel.

These days I keep getting trapped by Arknight's CC Blade's menu music and just sit there listening to both cycles of the song instead of working on the daily map. One of the integrated thematic factions the game uses is edgy 13 year old white boi music, so it's dangerous to tamper with.

Boom - new The Pretty Reckless album released today, plus all the tracks are on Youtube, here's one:

I'm a fan, Taylor has one of the best voices in rock atm. Edit: this album is really fantastic.

Joke track, but fun:

More seriously I'm obsessed with one-note Sax solos after hearing The Five Satins: The Jones Girl (Alt). I won't link it here because I am probably already pushing the limits of good taste with my previous link

Been playing this on repeat lately - short sweet Peel session with The Sundays. Great performance, great sound quality too - I can never gauge how well-known they are even in the UK, let alone outside it - jangle dreampop, Smiths x Cranberries mellowed out on both counts, kinda. Harriet Wheeler is a national treasure, such a wistfully cute voice. ImageImage
