  1. What books are people starting off the new year with? I'm trying to decide between Jonathan Lethem's A Gambler's Anatomy and Last Days by Brian Evenson.
  2. I was listening to this the other day and was wondering what people here thought of it. I feel like there's a lot of potential, but so far nothing has really hooked me.
  3. 10: Wilco – Schmilco 9: Andrew Bird – Are You Serious 8: Thee Oh Sees – A Weird Exits 7: Islands – Should I Remain Here, At Sea? / Taste 6: King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard – Nonagon Infinity 5: Feels – Feels 4: The Julie Ruin – Hit Reset 3: Goat – Requiem 2: Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool 1: David Bowie – Blackstar
  4. I've only listened a few times so far. Definitely more mellow than I was hoping for, though there are some really fantastic songs that I loved instantly. Interestingly (to myself at least), I like "If Ever I Was a Child" more in the context of the album than I did when I heard it on its own. My feelings on the album as a whole are still developing but I'm kind of getting the feeling I did when Sky Blue Sky followed A Ghost Is Born. I need more noise.
  5. Just got a Bandcamp alert that The Blisters posted a new track called "Comedown."
  6. Nice! I haven't seen that one, but I have Jack White and Eddie Vedder cards from a couple of years ago. Gonna have to get one of these.
  7. Hard not to love it, right?
  8. Are we not afraid of jinxing WS? Until it's in my hands, I can't in good conscience include WS in my evaluations. I still say: AM BT ST YHF AGIB SBS WTA TWL SW
  9. You of all people should know the rightful order is: AM BT ST YHF AGIB SBS WTA TWL SW
  10. Thee Oh Sees Minotaur Block of Ice Put Some Reverb on My Brother I Come from the Mountain AA Warm Breeze
  11. "Wilco has gone on hiatus after realizing no matter what, their fans always ranked their latest effort last among the band's releases." ^the darkest timeline
  12. But seriously, what constitutes a "good" album title? I mean, is there a criteria we are looking for? Personally I've always thought self-titled albums were a little lame, but W(TA) was a clever play on that. Beyond that, I'm not sure how to go about judging an album title. Unless it was something like "Excel Spreadsheets 4 Lyfe." Not sure I'd buy that album.
  13. The Harry Nilsson forum was so much more supportive in 1971 of the Nilsson Schmilsson title, but they did turn a bit critical when Son of came out. oh wait...

    Summer Wilco

    "I'm Always in Love" was the first one that came to mind.
  15. I've had a few friends here and there tell me they just "can't get into" Wilco. My response is always to say, "I bet somewhere in their catalog there's an album worth of songs that would get you on board." Not really a description, but it has always worked to make them give the band another shot and usually me a chance to make a Wilco mix.
  16. I never let my younger boy skip the drone. I'm pretty sure this is why he likes noise rock now.
  17. Damn, I missed that, too. I guess I'm not supposed to disappear for eight years at a time. Sheesh.
  18. That must've been right when I disappeared from VC. Wish I had been around, sounds like a fun time on the boards.
  19. I asked a journalist acquaintance who has heard the album what to expect, expressing my preference for their loud, asymmetrical stuff and he said it's "quite loud and definitely asymmetrical. Maybe not so much peppy." He also said it's amazing. Which I took as a given.

    What a nice surprise this was this afternoon. But now I NEED a new album. Like now!
  21. I've heard a couple songs and have been meaning to listen to more.
