Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

oh i gotta get on that.

SHINTARO SAKAMOTO mf'ers. I think someone here hipped me to Yura Yura Teikoku a few years ago, and I've loved his solo output since then.

I guess...there's also a new real estate?

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

Some other new goodies I like at the moment are Cloud Nothings, Foxygen (agree with Eddie),  Surfer Blood, Ty Segall and Japandroids (disagree with Eddie). Looking forward to the new Elbow, Los Campesinos, Dirty Projectors, British Sea Power and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

Yeah, I shouldn't, but I sensed a forthcoming wave of misunderstanding and disdain toward him similar to that I have seen elsewhere on these fine boards.

I think he's brilliant, though.

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

i thought that honey bear was kind of a sexist mess, and if we're picking sides, I think Ryan Adams covering Taylor Swift is way cooler than FJM trolling Ryan Adams for covering Taylor Swift.

And yes, new Cloud Nothings is solid!

yeah, we previewed this track on our podcast several months ago when we reviewed the latest Cass McCombs album. Glad the fork is finally getting hip to them - they are awesome. and the album is great.

Another really good local release is El Mansouris from DC. For some stupid reason they put out this album and played their last show on Friday night, though, so.

Shintaro Sakamoto is playing at my house/work desk/radio show! I've been listening to How to Live With a Phantom for a while now, just now getting into his new album.

Digging the two songs I've heard from the new Moon Duo album, Occult Architecture Vol. 1, which comes out this week.

Heyo! been a minute since I've been around these parts. Hope all the Jick board faithful are doing extra nice.

p4k has introduced me to a lot of great bands.  but every year i seem to dislike them more and more.  they used to be about indie rock.  now it's about kanye and trump and beyonce.  okay whatever but i came for the indie rock, which is more and more disappearing from the site.  luckily there are plenty of other sites for indie rock.

Re: 2017 albums - an ongoing thread/review

The new King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard album is really good! Excellent psychedelic, kraut-ish with some cool far out eastern flavours (and instruments).

It takes its name from the modified guitars they had built for it that have extra frets, inspired by the movable frets of the Turkish bağlama. “We were messing around with microtonal tuning,” explains Mackenzie. “Without getting too technical, it’s like dividing the musical notes so there’s one extra space: 24 notes an octave instead of 12. It opens up a bunch of possibilities.”

The effect is to create an incredibly intricate and textured version of garage rock that works beyond any oddball concept. The band built three guitars and a bass (all shaped like Flying Vs and painted yellow, hence the title) to help them go in search of this new sound, but hit a bump. “Everything you do sounds wrong,” says Mackenzie. “You’re culturally attuned to a certain set of frequencies. Our challenge was to make music that didn’t sound too wrong within those parameters.”  :)

The devil's in the details. Good stuff! Have a listen to three songs off the album here.

Apparently they will release four more albums in 2017...!!!
