#1853

so sick of this song.


#1854

yeah, I like this guy’s music. would have been too punky and straightforward to me a few years back, but I am currently way more into emotion in music than weirdness.


#1855

<3


#1856

I am well ‘in’ for Exploded View - not sure why this is the first time I’ve listened to them


#1857

these two songs are probably like, peak music. conveniently bundled together on this Yt video.

Listening to Dean Hurley’s Anthology Resource Vol. 1 on Bandcamp atm (https://deanhurley.bandcamp.com/). One of my favourite things about the new Twin Peaks is that there’s about a billion albums that count as its soundtrack (actually more like three or four tbf but shut up)


#1860

“Low Sustained Mystery” is a perfect track title on there. Also, I kind of love the artwork for it, even if it is bordering on a bit corny how they have Twin Peaks’d up various classic album cover design elements.


#1861

#1862

surprisingly good.

like every uppity kid of my age, animal collective - :+1:


#1863

this genius


#1864

Going through the Yo La Tengo albums in my collection in prep for May.

Certainly not in chronological order, as I am starting today with

I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass

I think I’m enjoying this more than I ever have before. I think it’s one I’ve not gained as much a “grip for” what it is as a whole, simply by virtue of it being extremely long and (I’d say even by YLT’s standards) very eclectic. I’ve always had a respect for the structuring of the tracklist though, having all that eclectic stuff sandwiched between two massive psych-y freakouts.


#1865

just noticed on the wiki page for YLT, it says [citation needed] next to “shoegazing” in the genre section. Tempted to edit the article providing a link to ‘We’re An American Band’ as said citation


#1866

this is off one of the beefheart records that beefheart fans say is shit. it’s not shit it’s incredible.


#1867

#1868

Ian William Craig is an utter genius. What wonderful music.


#1869

the chord progression and harmonies on this… just unutterably brilliant, no? imo their best song.


#1870

vocals are a bit like latter-day Nick Cave on this…


#1871

I want to be as happy as I am where this song takes me


#1872

I’m glad I randomly chose to investigate this. His work seems v up my street, and I’d never heard of the guy before. Cheers!
