Figured I would get this going again.
Catherine Wheel - Ferment
The Cure - Disintegration and Wish
Lots of Joy Division and The Smiths
In other words lots of oldies but goodies.
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend The Deftones album "Saturday Night Wrist." I like multiple Deftones albums but that one is my favorite and should appeal to the shoegaze fans we have on the boards. Thanks for reminding me, GOLDEN_BEAR.
Hey Culture Vulture! About Low, I agree with Lament aboutthe first album. Like Joy Division in slow motion, with some gorgeous harmonies added.
Or you could try his pretty darn good playlist on YouTube. “Shame”and “Over the Ocean” are some of my favorite songs ever. Another option is thelive album “One More Reason to Forget”, kind of limited edition, but should beavailable online... Some people seem to think “Secret Name” is their bestalbum, since it sounds like the first ones, but a little less bleak, more ordane– cellos, acoustic guitars, samples, not just echoing electric guitars.
I Like the first two Low albums, "I Could Live in Hope" and "Long Division" and think that those would both be good to start with.
I need to fill in the gaps with Deftones as I just have White Pony and Diamond Eyes. I love the dirty 8-string guitar sound. Heavy yet melodic. Thats why I like Isis too. Oceanic and Panopticon by them are superb.
Been listening to Sonic Youth, Oceansize, Bob Mould (reissue of Hubcap, Last Dog & Pony Show and Live Dog, excellent 3CD set), The Cribs, Modest Mouse, Nick Cave.
Also have the new Godspeed You! Black Emperor album which am yet to play.........
@headsore_71, that Cardinals record is so killer!
such a shame the band didn't release it when they were still together touring...
easily some of the best, most interesting material they wrote, not to mention their best band lineup!
Ben Howard - The Burgh Island EP
@sg70471 - Check out the Afghan Whigs live cover of "If There's Hell Below" from the "Live at Howlin' Wolf" ep. It kicks so much ass. It was on Grooveshark last time I checked.
I'm listening to the first The Cinematic Orchestra album and the album "Autumn Days" by a singer / songwriter that is new to me called Gus Black. Not amazing but good. It will probably grow on me.
@Kulturgam did you end up checking out any more Low?
bought Heirlooms of August - Forever the Moon & Desertshore - Drifting Your Majesty over the weekend, both are fantastic albums!
I think it's great that Mark's former band mates are now label mates...
though it really makes me want to see some type of full band RHP/SKM reunion...
or better yet, a new group combining elements from all 3 acts!
(ie the Koz in all his glory, the classical/dream-rock vibes of Desertshore, & the earthy americana elements of Heirlooms of August.)
in any case, I think it's awesome that these guys are still creating great music after all these years!
kudos to Koz & Co.
Excellent! I played the itunes clips of Drifting Your Majesty and it sounds like exactly the stuff I want Koz to do more of so I will be ordering the CD for sure. Will check out Heirlooms too
Apart from the recently arrived Kozelek CDs (more on these very soon):
Dinosaur Jr - I Bet On Sky
Neil Young - Psychedelic Pill
Caught In The Wake Forever - Against A Simple Wooden Cross
Mark Eitzel - Don't Be A Stranger
The Cure - Bloodflowers
Type O Negative - World Coming Down
Sparklehorse - It's A Wonderful Life
Nine Inch Nails - The Slip
It has been absurdly cold here the last couple days after extended unseasonable warmth pre-hurricane, so I'm in a chilly playlist right now.
Spokane - Little Hours
Vic Chesnutt - North Star Deserter
Codeine - Frigid Stars
American Music Club - Mercury
@klaher - How are the Mark Eitzel and Dinosaur Jr. albums?
