    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.

    I don't think Rough Trade Digital exists anymore… I remember it being launched 2 years(?) ago because it licensed the audio preview/player/shop system that we had created for the first version of (btw, we have absolutely nothing to do with the current version) — but now it seems to have vanished from the RT shop site.

    I've gone back to Last.FM as I do every now and then, I'm listening to the 'rockabilly' tag radio, so far it's given me The Cramps, Jerry Lee Lewis and a Wanda Jackson song I've not heard before, I approve.

    Currently, I'm having a Hardcore Renaissance of sorts, thanks in no small part to Joe's posting in these threads.

    There seemed to be a full year or so when most Hardcore fell into the Metal or Emo variety, so I drifted away from it. Now, I'm drifting back.

    So, this week it's lots of Fucked Up (Just saw them for the second time), Vicious Cycle, and, because I'll be seeing them in a couple of weeks, Negative Approach.

    I'm also thinking of picking up the new Propagandhi album. Anybody have an opinion on it?

    Currently listening qutite alot to the new RUSSIAN CIRCLES album, but it's not as good as I hoped it to be ...

    new PROPAGANDHI is pretty good, if you like the direction they have been moving in (ie more metal influence, better production ) you will love it. i think its pretty good overall and if you like them you probably wont be disappointed.

    oh, and bryce will tell you some truth: COACHES CORNER is a straight up amazing song.

    also, my buddy uploaded the aformentioned IRON LUNG record that is causing me to lose my shit this week in case you wanted it. my cats review of this record is that they immediately leave the room, if that helps.

    I really like the new Propagandhi. It sounds like a companion album to Potemkin City Limits to me (which is probably why I like it so much, since I loved PCL). In fact, the song "Potemkin City Limits" isn't even on that album, but actually shows up on Supporting Caste. Interesting guitar work, good lyrics, and just a touch of their sense of humor.

    Edited to add: Heh, I knew you'd answer this one quick, joe, and amen to "Coaches' Corner."

    If there were ever a pop punk song that could melt your face off it is Coaches' Corner. God damn I love that song. Frankly, the guitar work on that entire record turns my brain inside out when I think about earlier Propaghandi records, dudes have gained some serious chops.

    edit: I have been a Propaghandi fan for years and I really dug the new record. It does necessitate an open mind as, like joe said, metal solos are busted and the production level is pretty high, but when you get down to the core elements it remains Propaghandi.

    @ Joe, Infomancer, and Bryce

    Awesome, thanks. I'm going to head over to emusic to get it (and the new Lawrence Arms which I didn't know was out.)

    And Joe, the Iron Lung stuff is amazing, thanks.

    I was brutally and unsuspectedly dumped yesterday. He has decided he no longer is in love with me and has replaced me with another. Was crushed, got over suicidalness and left school for good. These 24 hours I've been finding out that he cheated on me and that he's fucked a shitton of women and only thinks with his dick and that he's generally not the person I thought he was. A total arsehole.

    Basically: I NEED MUSIC TO LISTEN TO . Music for this mood - which I don't even know what is. So not to highjack the weekly listening thread, but if people could come up with some (preferrably but not necessarily rock/metal/poprock etc) music that would become MY weekly listening, and as such be relevant for the thread. Happy or sad. Something. I'm a sucker for lyrics.

    Also, Warren, I need to know where you keep the arse eels.

    Any lyrical themes you're not up to? As in, no love songs, no heartbreak songs, etc.?
    My one album that makes me feel better, that has nothing to do w/ relationship whatsoever, Tub Ring's The Great Filter. To me, it's magical future-fantasy escapism pop-rock. But it's also my answer to everything. I can come up w/ something more appropriate if needed. :) I rarely talk to you here, but you know we're all here for you, if you need it.

    The fuck?!

    How 'bout "I Don't Care About You", by Fear?

    @oda, sorry to hear about that. You deserve much, much better.

    Angry/miserable songs:

    Kayo Dot - the Manifold Curiosity (the final four minutes are pretty terrifying),
    Aphex Twin - Come to Daddy
    Jeff Buckley - Grace/Last Goodbye/Lover, you should've come over
    A Silver Mt Zion - Could've Moved Mountains

    Kong - Leather Penny (posted in last month's listening thread, but good for RAAAAAGE)
    Also, anything by Lightning Bolt (bit happier here, still heavy as a motherfucker) or The Locust

    Feel better.

    @ Oda: Man, that's harsh. You need "Casanova" by LOLEATTA HOLLOWAY. Hope you feel better soon.
    • CommentTimeNov 11th 2009
    @ odaelisabeth: Depends on what kind of person you are, I guess. To me, that "sad music equals your own sadness" formula, which seems to work for other people, never worked. When I was younger I prefered something cheerful, later something aggressive. Nowerdays I in geneal like to listen to stuff, that forces you a bit to coencentrate yourself to really get into it ... maybe that's even a good way to get some distraction ..
    all the best from here, hope you feel better soon.

    @ Oda - don't do what I did and listen to The Weakerthans, listen to happy angry ska, stuff you can shout along to, I like Streetlight Manifesto because they have songs about not needing anyone else. I hope you feel better soon, I went through the most rubbish break up earlier in the year (he felt the need to dump me on facebook) and it really does suck.

    EDIT: I bought the new Propagandi album in part of my quest to get into proper punk, I don't know if it worked but it's amazing, and yes, Coaches' Corner is one of the highlights, it was unexpectedly emotional when they played it live as well.
