Milieu - Slow Lid Close [Expanded & Remastered]
I keep coming back to this lately after buying it. He was nice enough to throw in another reissue when I bought this. This one is really good downtempo and ambient and showcases how he evolved right before becoming more playful as milieu.

Listening to a lot of Curve once again. It has that kind of "90s UK indie sound" but to me always felt a bit anti-pop and just below the radar enough - the days when Brit Music was awesome.
I really wish I could have seen them live but I honestly did not know about them until some time in 2006 :(

I have always liked Toni's vocal presentation; dreary, on-going, centred and in control and the fairly melacholic and some how fragile yet defensive and thorny outlook of the songs that they wrote.

New 80's JPop, so great. Must find more like it.

Ahab - The Boats of the Glen Carrig

Great album. I like how they effortlessly switch between prog and metal. Solid.

Bjork - Vulnicura

Sad break-up album. Some very real emotions on display here. One of my favorites this year for sure.

With The Dead

Members of Electric Wizard team up with the lead singer of Cathedral. I like the lead singer of Cathedral way better than the Electric Wizard singer, so this works out fine for me.

Baroness - Purple

I was really impressed with this at first. But the lyrics got pretty lame to me after a while. Nice that they added in some keyboards.

Julia Holter - Have You in My Wilderness

Great album. Reminds me of some oldies type stuff sometimes. Great production. I kind hope this becomes a trend.

The Prodigy - The Day Is My Enemy


I'm enjoying this. Bangs pretty hard. Some great stuff on here.

Nightwish - Endless Forms Most Beautiful

I know this band has a lot of fans. I just don't get how they can take themselves seriously with this. Pretty sure I've never encountered something quite this cheesy before. I was on the halfway on verge of laughing the entire time while listening to this. I guess symphonic metal just isn't my thing.

Nice find. They're not exactly the same, but you might like Tentenko's "Good bye, Good girl" and maybe Billie Idle's "be-bop tu-tu" (this is more retro new wave).

Fuck me, Youthanasia is just the pumpy, snarly rumble for this dreary morning. Wasn't expecting much after WCW put me off post-92 Megadeth 4 life. Pleasantly surprised! Rovin' the fusion of grungy hard rock and gleaming serrated metal. Sounds almost like power-sleazing Illusion GNR at times, minus their rolls of overindulgent flab.

I like the way that I make you itch
And all the reasons I give you to bitch
And how I make you wanna scream in pain
And feel your life is just a losing game

Listening a to a lot of PIG as of late, I did not listen to Pigmartyr when it came out but it is not bad.

I have about 5-6 PIG albums. It was a bitch and a half to get PIG in the 90s I can tell you; he only released on this oosaka based label as I recall.

Always felt that PIG had the edge over KMFDM.

I think that this is the best version of Blades

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YeP3UcKvCGQ

First album I got was Wrecked and it has some great songs on it including Everything:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qbDVZ9G_HrQ

That was well heavy in the 90s.

Hot Hole is funny:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qY5WWSbXncE

There is a sort parody of sin, grime and such with Raymond the man just puts down the funniest lyrics and has the irony to carry it off well. I hope he plays soon:

I have always liked the silly, pervy lyrics and the way Raymond mixes things together.

Edit:

Looks like PIG originals still sell for a bit:

Revisiting early Wire albums (1977-'79), I can't believe my former indifference* towards 'em (A Bell Is a Cup… Until It Is Struck was the first one that once clicked with me). They are like a second-period Arvo Pärt of punk rock in that they make most other music seem like someone's having a wank. I wonder if there's a single musician who heard Wire and has never felt just a tiny bit envious of their mojo hard at work there.

Listening to White Light/White Heat and Loaded by The Velvet Underground inbetween.

*) Not so much indifference as losing to other stuff I'd listened to at the time of major internet piracy.

Riffing on those days of rapid fulfillment, THRaKaTTaK by King Crimson was another album amiably spoken of by those in the know A.D. 1996. Long story short, my tolerance to improvisation is a thing of usefulness.

Yeah Wire are incredible, also can't believe you ignored them :lol: especially since you seem to like mechanical/cold/artsy/high-concept stuff! they're both one of the best punk AND best post punk band of all time, which is no small feat. the penultimate art-punk band, you could say. Their robot rock is such a high concept and it's pulled off so masterfully. and stripped down so much even the Ramones are doing a double take! yet plenty of venom, swagger, hooks and cold and surreal exposés of human interractions

To deconstruct punk(which itself is a deconstruction) as early as 1977, is straight up madness! yet they did it

GIVE ME YOU MONEY - listen, I care

What a marvel Closing Time by Tom Waits is. As contexts come and go, it never fails to enchant me. For example, this time I've underwent some extensive exposure to real expert pianoplaying, in a variety of music genres, lately. And yet, honky-tonk pianoplaying here does not sound dilettante at all, to me. I guess he just felt right at home when playing with serious jazz musicians. Likewise, the singing's just darn good, musical as hell. And it's all so lyrical, I could go on and on, but my bedtime's upon.
