DiS Album of the Day Thread Day 30: Key Losers - California Lite


#101

My favourite is the Brown Album. For such cartoonish band i find a lot of Primus albums to be a bit of a downer, whereas the Brown Album maintains that bouncy funk sound throughout.


#102

Brown Album is fantastic.


#103

Nearly abandoned this thread after album 2 really didn’t float my boat, but just listened to 3 & 4 tonight and they are both great, so I’m on board again, if a bit behind schedule.

Might be worth having a weekly poll to choose the best album of each weeks’ choices?

I saw Primus in 1992 when they were supporting Rush and was absolutely intrigued. Rest of the audience seemed a bit baffled though. Never listened to ‘Sailing the Seas’ that much but I loved Pork Soda.


#107

The heavy bass bit at 1:32 in Jenny Was a Race Car Drive and when he tunes his bass down towards the end of Tommy the Cat are up there with my favourite bits in music ever.


#108

Love this live version of Tommy the Cat


#109

I dunno wut people are on about. I think this Primus album is the tits, love it


#110

I remember buying Sailing The Seas of Cheese back in 1991 after seeing a video for Tommy the Cat on MTV. Not heard it for years as the CD got nicked in a burglary in 1993 and I never replaced it!

I’ve messaged you a couple of albums @Yesiamaduck, I had to change one selection as I couldn’t find my first pick on any streaming service (Prolapse “The Italian Flag”).

Day 8:

The Residents - Animal Lover

The Residents - Animal Lover
Gentres: Experimental/Art Pop
Released: 2005
Submitted By: @Yesiamaduck
I love The Residents and unlike a lot of Residents fans, I like various eras of The Residents. The best era is obviously the original era but I personally believe that their early 00’s output was a bit of renaissance and ‘Animal Lover’ is my favorite from this period. More melodic and approachable during this time period ‘Animal Lover’ has some really beautiful melodies, the Kind you’d never expect from the eyeballs. I could’ve gone for Duck Stab, Not Available or The Commercial Album but because I think very few people on this board have listened to anything beyond the 80s from this band I thought I’d give this one the spotlight.

New album every day at about 5pm!

Also yes, the album cover is hideous, please try to look passed it!


#113

I guess you guys didnt :rofl:


#114

Being the sexy no-rules-can-bind-me renegade I am so far I’ve only listened to St. Germain and Primus. The former of which I really, really liked, which came as quite a surprise. I hadn’t heard of it before and the description didn’t fill me with hope but I’m going to be returning to it in the near future.

I’d already heard the Primus album but I felt like listening to it again. Still bonkers, still good.

I’m going to listen to the rest, starting with the Residents because I’ve never given them much time at all. I will be skipping Counting Crows though. Life’s just too short.


#115

I’ve no idea what I’m listening to here.


#116

U mean that in a good way, dont you :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#117

I wasn’t entirely sure. I’m still not 100% positive tbh. I feel like I’m listening to the OST to a dark yet curiously shmaltzy musical. I…think I like it?


#118

Embrace it!


#119

Need to catch up with the rest of these albums but about half way through Animal Lover and My Window is a melancholic beauty! And it was a pretty weird trip even getting up to track 8 - think I like this though!
