well this was a surprise as i didnt realize dbt had a new one coming out. admittedly, i have been underwhelmed by every dbt record since brighter than creations dark, but w every release i have hope. not saying they are bad records by any means, but just saying is all. the new one is called american band and is being released on 9.30 via ato records. honestly, at first i couldnt even tell this was cooley singing. read more about american band via npr.
believe chin up chin up’s we should have never lived like we were skyscrapers was released in 04, or about that time. i hadnt started captainsdead, which was started in nov of 05, but if i am not mistaken this record was one of the first ones i talked about on here. they were a chicago band, and as such hold a special place in my black heart. they released 3 records, but this is the one that grabbed me. thats not saying their other stuff isnt good, its just that this one is so fucking fantastic. please do give it a listen.
this came out when i was in college in 1994. i remember reading about overwhelming colorfast’s two words in maybe alternative press before it went to shit, or magnet, and i knew i had to have it. so one hungover morning in macomb, il, i called my local shop to see if they had it, and wouldnt you fucking know, they did! long and short, its a pop/punk masterpiece to my ears. it doesnt get very good reviews by “critics” but damn it so catchy. read more about em, here.
you can buy it for a freakin penny on amazon, or listen to it down there.
the kamikaze heart’soneida road was an absolute godsend back when i first heard it back in 06. shit 10 years ago, sands through the hour glass. pretty sure it was my favorite record of that year, even if it wasnt it should have been cause 10 years later i still listen to it like it was brand new. its an absolutely brilliant piece of work and recommend to anyone that will listen. it’s definitely in my top ten favorite records ever, so theres that. there are no flaws on this record, which is quite a feat. please give these two songs a listen and then go either buy the damn record or go listen to on spotify, google music or whatever, just listen.
oh man, me loves me some of milwaukee’s finest, sat. nite duets. i loved whatever they have put out, and i am being very vague as i have no more history to look back on since i had to blow away ten years worth of posts. with that said, this new song off their upcoming record air guitar, is great. if you like the gbv, elephant 6 bands, etc, you will undoubtedly dig sat. nite duets. cannot wait to hear the entire thing which is due out father/daughter records on 9.16.
admittedly, i wasnt the biggest prince fan, but obviously believe he’s one of the greatest musicians to ever walk this earth. i found this the other day, and figured a few of you, maybe a lot of you, would appreciate it. this is one of those posts that may get taken down quickly, but you never know?
i didnt do a top 10/20 of 2015, and while we are, shit, almost 6 months into 2016, this was my favorite record of last year. that would be hop along’spainted shut, i still listen to it all the time cause its amazing. definitely check them out. me thinks most people its gonna be either love or hate kind of record.
