i agree with everything in that statement

 

 

 

 

so i saw the gaslight anthem on sunday (my third time) and they killed it, like they always do

saw people moshing to great expectations, never thought id see that

 

then after them was the replacements and they had the energy of dudes in their mid-20s, it was incredible

 

then pearl jam, and they just played a bunch of the new album and other stuff not from ten or vs. or vitalogy

 

like no betterman or jeremy

 

i guess eddie vedder would rather cover neil young and tell people to register to vote than play pearl jam's good songs

they played alive, daughter and even flow though, that was cool

 

 

it was alright though, the band sounded good and i discovered that the best replacements song is androgynous...tied with a bunch of other ones but androgynous is really really good

what has everybody been listening to lately? anything in particular?

 

I've been listening to Weezer a lot since they just dropped their new album, but mostly I've been gettin into the October spirit with a lot of gothic rock, deathrock, darker strains of post-punk, etc. and some doom metal and atmospheric melodeath as well.

Nothing in particular, lately. I've been designating Friday evenings as my listening nights in order to catch a break from the rest of the week.

I guess I've been on a Bruce Springsteen/E-Street Band kick, though.

Avatar's first few albums were melodic death metal (which itself is pretty different from just death metal). Black Waltz and Hail the Apocalypse, however, are more groove metal than anything else.

this ought to make at least one other person around here happy: Refused are working on a new album.

 

I just recently picked up their last album The Shape of Punk to Come and gave it a listen, and though I'd be lying if I said that I loved it as much as everyone else seems to, I did enjoy it (and who knows, maybe it'll grow on me even more) and I look forward to seeing what they do next. I also need to dig into their back catalog a bit.

 

 

 

unrelated to that, we're nearing the end of the year and there have been a handful of major releases within the past few weeks, so now seems like as good a time to ask this again as any: favorite albums of the year so far, people?

 

in unbiased, alphabetical order I've dug Transgender Dysphora Blues by Against Me!, Distant Satellites by Anathema, At War with Reality by At the Gates, Beyond Calculation by The Austerity Program, La Gárgola by Chevelle, The Powers That B - Part 1 by Death Grips, From Parts Unknown by Every Time I Die, IV - One with the Storm by Ghost Brigade, Plowing into Fields of Love by Iceage, Shadows of the Dying Sun by Insomnium, El Pintor by Interpol, Phantom Shadow by Machinae Supremacy, Run the Jewels 2 by Run the Jewels, Ultraviolet by Sadistik, Ultra Silvam by Ştiu Nu Ştiu, Heathen by Thou, and Evertything Will Be Alright in the End by Weezer more than anything else I've heard this year. still have a few things I need to check out though, and there are at least a couple more albums I'm interested in that haven't been released yet.

I'm waiting for something official on the Refused album before I start getting excited, but yeah, if it's real then it's huge. It's a shame that Jon had to leave the band for whatever reason and whatever happened between them, but Dennis and David have pretty much always been the real brains behind the music, so I have faith in them.

I don't know how something could possibly live up to TSoPtC and 15+ years, but I'd be all over it the moment it came out it.

 

 

As for favourite albums of the year thus far, my list hasn't really changed all that much.

 

In the top tier I have Ghouleh by Starofash, by Devin Townsend, Noise by Boris, The Satanist by Behemoth, Casualties of Cool by Casualties of Cool, Splinters by Vallenfyre, Enter by Fire! Orchestra, Longhena by Gridlink, Esoteric Warfare by Mayhem, Once More 'Round the Sun by Mastodon, Piano Nights by Bohren & Der Club of Gore and the soundtrack to The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth by Ridiculon.

 

And then other worthwhile stuff includes Our Time Will Come by KMFDM, Xenon by Mechina, Ultra SIlvam by Ştiu Nu Ştiu, Oi Magoi by Hail Spirit Noir, Matters of Mind, Body and Soulby Clan of Xymox, The Joy of Motion by Animals as Leaders, Shogunate Macabre by Whispered, Distant Satellites by Anathema, Bliss*cough* by Trap Them, Regicide by Hour of Penance, The World We Left Behind by Nachtmystium, Pale Communion by Opeth and The Black Wild Yonder by Words of Farewell.

 

There's still stuff I have yet to hear like the new At the Gates, as well as stuff that hasn't come out yet, like the new Bloodbath and Machine Head.

 

The new Goto Mariko album comes out tomorrow, on my birthday coincidentally, but I don't know how easy it will be to get to listen to that since it will only be released in Japan.

Also I can't really even pretend that I'm anywhere near into her solo pop stuff as much as I was into the erratic hardcore punk/jazz fusion thing she was doing with Midori, but I'm still interested in the new album.

Apparently it came out on the 7th even.

Shows how much I've been keeping up with music.
