A buddy of mine bought the new album, "Kveikur," on vinyl from Amazon, and, thanks to AutoRip, had no use for the download code included with the record and sent it to me. This is my first experience listening to these guys, though I have a number of fans who are raving fans. Just never got around to giving 'em a listen, I guess.
They're Icelandic, and not a lick of their lyrics are in English, but whatever. I dig their sound; they remind me a lot of Switzerland's Dungen and the U.K.'s Durutti Column. They play very spacey, ambient, post-psychedelic rock, which I dig. I mean, if you can stomach the Legendary Pink Dots, grooving to these guys is a cake walk.
Of course, I say all this assuming no one here has ever listened to Sigur Rós before....
6/18/74 I've got a combo of Road Trips & Miller in the unit - so far so good.
Essential '74 Dead.
I've sang to and with my Dad just about every
Grateful Dead song ever written.
This was the last one,
the last one I sang to him.
The ending in this fits.
He has been my Master Teacher
Our suffering has been un-measurable
Our love has been at every ending...
it's like a full-house Aces and 8's.
It's the man from Fleetwood Mac who's neither Mick Fleetwood nor John McVie! His DIY album, "Seeds We Sow," displays yet again the softer side of FM's wild guitarist. I like this album because, while it's a nice oiece of soft rock to which one can relax, it really showcases Buckingham's skill and versatility as a guitarist. Sure, it's a tad guitar-heavy, but it *is* the man's weapon of choice.
Oh, and he played ALL the instruments on the record, not just guitar. How's THAT for versatility?
the sound of new gray hairs smugly telling the brown ones to "make room". My son just got his driver's license today........oh boy.
It definitely WOULD be heaven for me. A middle-age-guy lame excuse: none of the tour stops are within my general 150 mile-radius cut-off for daytripping to shows, and the only potential road trip that I came up with just doesn't appeal to me. Oh well...not happy am I.
Have you listened to this show yet?
Jerry was ALIVE and in the flow like he was in the early 70's... The China > Rider (for me) is the best I've ever heard! Then a sweet LL Rain and the mind blowing Aiko > Dark Star > Terrapin! The Dark Star is also my all-time favorite and the most jazzy "together" version I've ever heard! Does not space out there too too far - is more like a Jazz ballad! Mostly for me, I feel the Heart and Soul of Jerry and the Boys radiantly alive and this set moves me to tears every time I listen to it. Give it a listen for yourself! You will not be disappointed! And would love to hear your feedback too.
Do you like Miles? A good place to hear this one is Hanalei, Hi.
...playing in their bedroom. Getting along for the moment...but it will pass.
Ahhhh Parkas...kids are always listening aren't they? Young and impressionable they are. I always hated my Father's choice of music when i was young. Elton John, Doobies, MeatLoaf, Guess Who...but like you I find myself listening and enjoying the music that was subliminally entrenched in my head for all those years. I'm testing that with my own kids. My wife and I do not have the same taste in music, and she usually wins the battle these days. I'm aiming for adulthood.
