Regions of Light and Sound of God I have this nagging feeling that My Morning Jacket is going to go all Radiohead on me. This album doesn't do much to allay that fear. The fact that I like the album isn't much help, since I also liked "OK Computer," but hated "Kid A" and everything after. Naahhh, it'll never happen. Will it?
I gotta say, gratefuldean, I've listened to several My Morning Jacket albums as well as Jim's solo record, and they don't do a thing for me. "Rolling Stone" raves and raves and RAVES about them, but I just don't hear what all the fuss is about. Sure, they're a very talented group of musicians, but their music feels very formulaic to me and not at all psychedelic. They must be one of those bands you gotta see live. Studio albums just don't seem to do them justice.
I gotta say, Parkas, I'm surprised that I like them, at least in a way. You're right, though, I got hooked seeing MMJ live before I ever heard an album. On the other hand, Circuital is one of my favorite albums of the past few years, so obviously once I "got" them, I "got" them.
Dark Star. Love this compilation and wish I'd taken the time to order the full ten disc set while it was first advertized. There is a confident rawness here that is just rising to maturity.

4/08/72 Dead Solid Perfect.
I find it slightly odd that I had a sudden urge to listen to QotSA yesterday, which just so happens to be the same day the band announced the release date of their new album, "...Like Clockwork." I also hate that I like this band so much, what with Josh Homme being such an a**hole and all that. I guess you just can't mess with genius sometimes. Anyway, yeah, I breezed through their self-titled debut yesterday (the recent re-release, anyway), am currently listening to "R," and will finish up with their best album to date, "Song for the Deaf." I used to have "Lullabies to Paralyze" and "Era Vulgaris," but they've gotten lost in the ether of crashed harddrives, never to be heard from again....
TraceStraightaways Wide Swing Tremelo Cruising this week with the Son Volt discography ahead of seeing this year's version of the band at the Cat's Cradle on Saturday.
Rhythm & Sound
One of my favorite artists of all time, I just love his take on the blues. Got a bunch of his records on wax, which I recently converted to MP3s. Here's the playlist for today:- "Better Than the Rest" a.k.a. "Nadine" - S/T - "Move It on Over" (my favorite!) - "Bad to the Bone" - "Maverick" - "Live"
4/11/72 City Hall, Newcastle, England "From day to day, just lettin' it ride, you get so far away from how it feels inside. You can't let go , 'cause you're afraid to fall, but the may come when you can't feel at all."
The post-hiatus albums Okemah and the Melody of Riot The Search American Central Dust Honky Tonk I'm not filling in the missing years with Jay Farrar solo. I really like Honky Tonk with that classic Bakersfield sound, expecting to hear plenty of that sort of thing tomorrow night...
Just for gits and shiggles.

The Low Highway Nice! Lately I've been listening to "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Grateful Dead" in 20-30 minute chunks at bedtime. I have a way of neglecting the compilation releases sitting on the shelf, and it's been a while since I listened to this one. Reminds me why this is my favorite era of the Dead. Counting down to DaP6...what's the word on the bonus disc?

The Mighty Quinn
Listening to the LPs I was lucky enough to snag on Record Store Day this past Saturday. Sadly, I missed the 'Dead's release as well as the re-issue of Pink Floyd's "See Emily Play," but I did get some pretty great records! There are a few other special releases I picked up that I haven't opened yet, too, like "The Animals Is Here" and "The Animals Are Back" to name a few. Managed to get quite the haul this year!- "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars" by David Bowie* - "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" by David Bowie - "Album" by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts - "Public Image" by Public Image Ltd. - "(The Night the Sky Cried) Tears of Fire/Farstar" by the Sword* - "Hammer of Heaven" by the Sword* - "The Madcap Cries" by Syd Barrett* - "The Only Way to Go Is Straight Through" by Thurston Moore and Loren Connors * non-Record Store Day releases
Boards Of Canada
JJ Grey and Mofro -- This River Eric Burdon -- 'Til Your River Runs Dry Speaking of Eric Burdon, I also snagged one of those Animals RSD mono releases, sounded pretty nice. Also, Richard Thompson, Jason Isbell/Elizabeth Cook, Avett Bros/Randy Travis, Gary Clark Jr, Mike Cooley, Jimi Hendrix, all on vinyl (I think that I'm forgetting something here), and a pristine used vinyl copy of the Ramones "Rocket to Russia." But missed the Dead RSD release...
Oh, man, that new Eric Burdon record is AMAZING! I've loved the Animals since I was a kid and managed to snag both RSD 45s. But yeah, "'Til Your River Runs Dry" is a stunning album and definitely one of the best I've heard in the last year or so.
"Blue Monk" from 'The Essential Thelonious Monk'
"Kids" from the band's debut EP, 'Time to Pretend'. An interesting release but nowhere near the level of 'Oracular Spectacular' or 'Congratulations'.
