Sigur Ros - Ara Batur

Easily the best song of the year and may be their very best song to date.

^ That's another thing. The only options for buying iTunes music are either a shitty codec or an mp3 with a shitty bitrate. Brooks' quote makes so much sense here: "There are a number of issues that need to be addressed in the digital downloading world before we introduce our music to it." A form of digital distribution should not be embraced if it's only going to make the music available in terrible sound quality. If I were any artist, I don't care how much more money I could expect to make, I would never sell my music through such a limiting service. Trent Reznor took a huge step in the right direction by making the downloadable Ghosts I-IV release available in both FLAC and mp3 (with bitrates that actually made sense). It was also an amazing move for him to upload it to Waffles himself, since the freedom you get with a site like that is exactly the kind of thing music fans want with digital music distribution.

How the fuck is wanting to keep an album intact pretentious at all? Have you never found one of the reasons you've liked an album to be its flow and pacing? Continuity and flow are important aesthetics, and I sure as hell wouldn't want that compromised if I put out some work of art where I strived for those factors. I certainly don't blame Radiohead nor The Beatles for this, because OK Computer and Abbey Road for example are two albums that I've always felt had a remarkable flow to them (and that's a massive understatement). They are not being unreasonable or pretentious in the least.

DQV is definitely the one to look forward to the most. It's an amazing game and for me it will be an absolute pleasure playing through again on the DS.

65daysofstatic - Retreat! Retreat!

Oh yes.
7  Media / The Soundroom / hi acoustics? on: May 16, 2008, 08:15:02 PM
Red House Painters - Drop; probably the saddest song you'll ever hear.

City & Colour - Bring Me Your Love (album); a warm, mature, and uplifting all acoustic album and one of my favorites of this year.

Green Carnation - Acoustic Verses (album); a dense and atmospheric album with a 15-minute centerpiece that will seriously blow you away.

Neutral Milk Hotel - In the Aeroplane Over the Sea (album); there are few albums that are either happier or more depressing than this one.

I didn't mean to end up listing albums, but each of these are great and I highly recommend each.

Quote from: "SonicDeathMonkey"
Laughing Stock in particular is just phenomenal... so goddamn good....


I'm gonna have to say I prefer Spirit of Eden, but also that New Grass from Laughing Stock is easily the best song from either album and one of the greatest things I've ever heard.

I also really agree with you that Funeral kicks Neon Bible's ass.

Thrice - Child of Dust

I am absolutely in love with this song's lyrics.

Dear prodigal, you are my son and I
Supplied you not your spirit, but your shape.
All Eden's wealth arrayed before your eyes;
I fathomed not you wanted to escape.

And though I only ever gave you love,
like every child you’ve chosen to rebel;
uprooted flowers and filled the holes with blood;
ask not for whom they toll the solemn bells.

A child of dust to mother now return;
for every seed must die before it grows.
and though above the world may toil and turn,
no prying spade will find you here below.

Now safe beneath their wisdom and their feet,
Here I will teach you truly how to sleep.

King Crimson - Starless (Live at Mainz 1974)

A friend of mine over the internet who was the biggest fan of King Crimson anyone's ever seen passed away earlier today. He was a great guy and single-handedly got me back into this band by opening me up to the wonderful world of live King Crimson, and for that I'm listening to one show from every era.

Well, check out 55:12 first if you haven't (AMAZING album), and then if you like that, listen to Rest again. I love the new album, it might become one of my favorites for the year.

Isis - Deconstructing Towers

High Fidelity

A movie for music fans everywhere.

^ I just saw the movie that your name references. That's a big load off my shoulders.

Gregor Samsa - The Adolescent
