Topic: The Official New Album Thread

Well, I think it is fair to say that this makes it "official," hence the thread title. Get pumped up!

OK, so, what do we have in the way of songs? Baby Boomer Nights and... ?

I can't find the posts but somewhere in this bottomless pit we had a thread where we had compiled what was probably as close to an exhaustive list as is possible (other than one made by the Jicks themselves) of all the songs that SM has post-RET that haven't made it on a record. I think it was pretty close to two albums worth.

Does anyone remember what thread all that was in?

Re: The Official New Album Thread

i can't remember where that list is. but some of the songs that will end up being thrown out -- like say Astral Facial -- are nearly 10(?) years old now. my hope is we'll get an album of stuff that's legitimately new to us.

Agreed.

If history is a guide, we'll probably get one or two we've heard live and then 10 give or take that are genuinely new to us. SM doesn't seem like the type to mine something that's that old in most cases, unless he's changed it pretty dramatically from how it appeared earlier. Which makes sense. You'd like if a song has gotten to the point that he took it to the band, they worked it out, and took it live, that it has kind of made it to the judgment day -- either it's good enough for the next album or new stuff comes up and it isn't.

what!? yes!!

Re: The Official New Album Thread

I think I started one of the threads about the Post RET, Post WigOut, and In-Betweeners. I can't remember exactly....


- "BabyBoomer Nights"

- "Macon" (Don't even remember which one this is)

- Something from Tel Aviv, (which I cannot find, for some reason.)

now, they're gonna burn me....

Re: The Official New Album Thread

What about the material (sketches?) from The Animal Collective show?

I saw about three seconds of that on Twitter, couldn't find anything on youtube . . .

Re: The Official New Album Thread

I wonder what to expect from the electronic stuff. I'm glad it's not replacing the Jicks, that'd be a total bummer. I don't really listen to anything close to that realm other than the one Animal Collective LP I have (and enjoy), and Kindling for the Master, haha. But with Malk at the keys?/computer?/what? I'll give anything a try.

Yeah.... That was a cool couple of seconds. It's on Jake's Instagram, I believe...? Maybe Jo's or Mike's? I cannot recall.


But it did not really feel too Jicksy. So, IF there is any truth to the "Electronic Record", maybe that tune was for that one.
IF I had to guess, I suppose.

now, they're gonna burn me....

Re: The Official New Album Thread

There's a 2:20 video here: https://twitter.com/MalkmusAndJicks/sta … 6954671105

Definitely to be filed under the electronic project.

It`s a little like NEU! is what he said

Haha - that tune was exactly what popped into my head when I read "Malk" and "electronic".

I will be happy to listen to any new SM album, but the Jicks are where the heart is, for this boy at least.

Re: The Official New Album Thread

Funk posted a shot of Malk at the board on Instagram saying it is almost done. SM still silent! C'mon Jix, let us know what's up.

Re: The Official New Album Thread

Y’all do yourselves a favor and check Jake’s instagram if you can. He posted a clip of him drumming along to a song from “the new Jicks record,” basically confirming that there is a new jicks record. He then posted two clips of Steve doing another electronic set thing. Stoked.

Do a little hopscotch

He has it private, as does CFunk. I requested follows of both some time back, CFunk approved, Jake did not. Which I get... I don't even have a Facebook account. tongue

Not that it's a surprise, Steve is always painfully casual about his new recs, but it would be nice to hear a little info at this point about what's next!
