    GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS: Lost Channels
    ORNETTE COLEMAN: The Shape of Jazz to Come
    NEIL YOUNG: Comes a Time
  1.  (7176.3)
    got three fantastic records this past week
    LAWRENCE ARMS-buttsweat and tears 7" -more of exactly what you expect from these drunken idiots. i cant believe they actually followed through and named the record that, its so stupid and its only funny because they stayed true to their word.

    IRON LUNG/WALLS/PIG HEART TRANSPLANT collaboration project 12"- holy crap, this album runs through a wide variety of extreme music, starting off powerviolence fast, then moving through a cycle of bleak noise, midtempo gruff hardcore, blown out bass on slowed down stuff and other harsh realities. its really better than the sum of its moving parts. i seriously thought "wow, finally a violence record for the WHITECHAPEL folks". the internet has ruined my brain.
    CONVERGE-axe to fall 12" yeah yeah we already know its great, but the gatefold 12" just came in. a beautiful complete package for a beatiful face smashing record.

    Joe's back to normal, everybody. Relax now.
  3.  (7176.5)
    I've started listening to "Sage Francis" even though I'm not a hip hop fan. His songs have a bit of a blues/rock/ country twist sometimes and his lyrics are pretty decent.
  4.  (7176.6)
    Pelican - What We All Come to Need
    Lair Of The Minotaur - The Ultimate Destroyer
    A Storm of Light - Forgive Us Our Trespasses
    Faith No More - Album of the Year

    What i was listening to today

    Best Coast - Sun Was High (So Was I) & Make you mine 7"´s : One of the girls form Pocahaunted makes west coast pop tunes run through the usual tape hiss and noise. surprising tuneful and pleasant.

    elm - nemcatacoa: Doomy shoegaze stuff. equal parts My Bloody Valentine, Windy & Carl & Fennesz

    Krallice - Dimensional Bleedthrough: Full on mix of math and black metal strands. Rather intense

    Pyramids with Nadja - Pyramids with Nadja: Am still trying to absorb this album. I´m pretty on the fence with it so far.

    Jodis - Secret House: I´ve had this on my Mp3 player for over a month now and i´just can´t seem to get over the brilliant bleakness of it all. Increadibly slow, heavy and sparse. If Sunn o))) did an unplugged gig in a cave.

    Datarock - Give It Up: some dance punk fluff to jump to

    Gatekeeper - Optimus Maximus: After @HelloMuller recommended this last week i got hold of a copy. Imagine if John Carpenter, Art of noise & Throbbing Gristle decided to write music to the most mental 80´s arcade game in the world.

    My summer as a salvation soldier - Nýtt (ep): And up and coming Icelandic band who are giving away this EP for free. Download it here
  5.  (7176.8)
    Mount Florida
    World Domination Enterprises
    Kraftwerk -1, 2 , Ralf & Florian

    for starters.

    Still waiting Baron Mordant's package.
  6.  (7176.9)
    I usually check Boomkat for a weekly dose of download goodness, and Bleep (for the content you, strangely, can't find on Boomkat).
  7.  (7176.10)
    I usually end up having to hit Bleep three or four times a year for the things I can't find anywhere else. Rough Trade Digital has, oddly, gone from being very handy to fucking useless for me in the last year or so. Dunno why.

    @joe - You just made me bust out Apathy and Exhaustion. Thank you. Also, "Buttsweat and Tears" is just the sort of brilliant vulgarity I would expect from Brendan, whose past song title gems include, "Hey, What Time is 'Pensacola: Wings of Gold' On?" and "Fuck You Larry Koeschke, I Hope you Starve and Die Someday"

    Which reminds me. I filled in on bass for a local band on Friday night called "The Guys" who are the self proclaimed, "2nd Best Oi! band in Fargo" and have songs like, "Skinhead Slumberparty" and "Betcher Boots 'n Braces Brother"

    I also opened for J. Tillman of Fleet Foxes on Thursday. Kind of a mix between the soft spoken singer songwriter and noisy psych-prog. Me likey.

    Currently Listening:
    R. Crumb et les Primitifs du Futur - World Musette
    Rudimentary Peni - Underclass EP
    Peverelist - Erstwhile Riddim

    SLAYER - WORLD PAINTED BLOOD. During which I yawned a lot
    BOOK OF MAPS - II. Wonderfully angular mathcore in the vein of Don Caballero
    PYRAMIDS WITH NADJA - PYRAMIDS WITH NADJA. In which Nadja's buzzdrone is softened somewhat and infrequently approached something close to a tune. Good for newcomers to Nadja
    JOHN WILLIAMS - THE MAGIC BOX. The guitarist, not the composer. Playing wonderful little tunes he gathered from Africa.
    STEVE VAI - WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. New live CD rather than the soundtrack for the new Charlie Kaufman movie unfortunately. Actually pretty good considering the previous Sound Theories CD and where he could have gone from there.
    LAMB OF GOD - WRATH. Spent ages avoiding the CD because of the imagery in the first line of the first verse of the first song. Given I listen to things much darker than this, the idea of cows with sickly teats shouldn't be that bad, but hey, once you get past that, it's OK. Not as good as Sacrament but deserves some of your time. (Incidentally, has anyone noticed that Lamb of God are now the closest thing we have to Pantera? I don't know if that's a good thing, but...)
