    @Taphead: I picked it up on a whim a few years ago and don't really know much about Sylvian. Is his other stuff much like this moodwise? It's something I often return to. Also, is Spoon's "Transference" any good? I ask as I have "Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga" and quite enjoy it.
    • CommentTimeMar 2nd 2010 edited

    Sylvian's solo albums prior to Blemish are pretty much in the same vein; moody, melancholy and very lush. Secrets of the Beehive is the one I'd recommend without any hesitation. The last two albums (Blemish and Manafon) are incredibly bleak and austere things that skirt avant garde when not full-on embracing it. I still haven't wrapped my brain around Manafon, but Blemish is incredible listening.

    ETA: Transference is very good. Stuck on repeat over here.

    im liking this NEW LOWS tape the more i listen to it. wasnt that keen at first, since its midtempo-yelly-moshcore, but its growing on me.

    and hey, if nothing else it was worth the 3 bucks for a sweet cover of "RAISE THE CURTAIN"

    It's been a piano sort of day for me. I started with pleasant stuff like Clair de Lune and Einaudi's Le Onde, moved on to more frantic stuff like Hungarian Rhapsody #2 and Moonlight Sonata Movement #3, then my head exploded when I tried to tackle the first few movements of Sorabji's Opus Clavicembalisticum. That's where I draw the line for dissonant music.

    I just moved and most of my life is still in boxes. I haven't even had the time to listen to listen to music.

    Right now I'm having ITunes shuffle work its way through last month's purchases.

    Excepter - Presidence (Droney Electro_prog that's either brilliant or completely self-indulgent.)
    Fucked Up - Couple Tracks (Now, lord knows I love Fucked Up, but I love them more when they're really experimenting with Hardcore. These single are more straight forward but are still head and shoulders above most current Punk.)
    Gil Scott-Herin - I'm New Here
    Interference - Interference (A downtown NYC band from the 80's. Pretty fantastic really, in a "James Chance using Funk as a weapon" kind of way.)
    Pantha du Prince - Black Noise
    Xiu Xiu - Dear God, I Hate Myself
