nah you're not that emo. you could have listed mineral or rainer maria or some total dreck. it's hard to argue with modest mouse from any vantage point. now can you edit your post down.

ok i think my first selection will be the pixies, since everyone likes nirvana. i can't tell what level to aim for here... some will find this totally pedestrian, but if one person discovers the pixies, no harm no foul, right?

kurt cobain said he was "trying to write a pixies song" when he wrote teen spirit. i don't think he succeeded, but what the hey.

i also have two old awesome meat puppets records (the band who nirvana covers 2 or 3 times on unplugged).

i can also post earth - 2 and earth - pentastar in the style of demons which are fucked up weird super sludge/epic stoner rock records. dude from earth was one of cobain's best friend (i think cobain called them "his favorite band") and he is most famous for having bought the shotgun. does anyone want to hear this. it's awesome...

Good call. As far as good Pixie intro albums, I'd suggest Doolittle as the most approachable. Surfer Rosa has some GREAT singles, but the album as a whole isn't quite as digestible.

Fugazi - The Argument
http://www.sendspace.com/file/g8qqin

20 year career; who thought their last album would end up being the defining statement? i mean these guys are legitimately old as this point no matter how punk rock they used to be, but this record is fucking perfect. anyone who listed anything like nirvana or other larger scale "alternative" rock records should download this. pascal can probably speak to it's awesomeness. It's very accessible, very catchy, but very sophisticated and "mature" (the lack of a better word is problematic) songs and awesomeness.

if you like that, here's
Fugazi - Red Medicine

And I shall: Its fucking awesome. Seriously, ANY of Fugazi's albums are worth a listen. They really just evolved from the raw, hardcore sound of East Coast punk rock of the mid-eighties, so even as their vocals and musical stylings are constantly maneuvering into countless different subtle and psycho inversions of themselves, there's always just this grittiness about them that never seems to go completely away. And that's awesome.

I'll be honest, I hadn't listened to The Argument yet, but am jamming to it now and I really enjoy it, definitely shows a lot of growth from Repeater. Anyone into these guys might like Bear vs. Shark, they're a little more "rock" and a little less "alt".

Also, Hammy, U.N.K.L.E. kicks ass, have you heard the new one, War Stories? His track, Restless, with Josh Homme from Queen of the Stone Age is some highly dominant stuff.

I haven't really heard the Argument much yet, but Red Medicine is a brilliant album.

Haven't heard the new UNKLE, but I haven't been impressed with Queens of the Stone Age much... however I'm always willing to listen to something new.

dude i suspect you just found your favorite record of the year.
seriously... just start with epic problem and work around to the awesomeness of... every other song. guy's "day in the life" type mash of like 5 songs into 1 song is so good too.



Next up: Can. I mentioned this band to Josh QN when he was here. I don't know how to explain this band aside from to say it was a bunch of germans in the 70s (plus one random japanese guy) who thought they were a funk band, but they were german and it didn't really work out that way.

Highlight of life: emerging from the L train at 14th st. to hear the sounds of Vitamin C blasting around the subway station, then finding out it was a part of a bunch of young black teenage dudes' breakdance tape. there's really no way they had any idea it was a bunch of old german dudes from the 1970s, and succinctly demonstrated the universality of awesome music.

Also jaki liebezeit is definitely my favorite drummer of all time. The dude is basically Un Fucking Real. The original drum machine basically.

Also also, you know that kanye west song "drunk and hot girls"? that's a can song sample/parody/something.

Youtube taste of 'Vitamin C'

Also more Fugazi content:

Pailhead - Trait
http://www.mediafire.com/?0abh9g5klxw

Once upon a time Ian Mackaye (Fugazi) and Al Jourgensen (Ministry) made a record together. If your knowledge of these two leviathans of non mainstream music is high enough to make you go "WTF"... yeah... basically this is a "WTF". Some of the songs are killer though.


Egg Hunt - 7"
http://www.sendspace.com/file/1y599m

This is a band Ian was in for like 10 seconds somewhere in the post Minor Thread/pre-Fugazi era.


Rites of Spring - s/t
http://www.sendspace.com/file/b9gva5

Another interstitial band, but they were bigger. The term "emo" was basically invented for this band. Which is not a good indicator, these days, as to what they sound like. Not my fave but since we have so many fugazi fans anyways...

I was reading a magazine article the other day about a woman trying to get her kids into vinyl so they wouldn't look at songs with a one-track kinda mind (sorry, bad pun), but instead learn to appreciate when an entire album is put together in a way that just blends with itself so you get maximum pleasure from listening to it, start to finish.

Back in the day, this was standard practice for most bands. Pink Floyd albums are a superb example where any song pulled from the rest lost some depth in the context, most jazz albums are good examples too. To continue Vlad's "Pick 5" game, what are 5 albums you enjoy that are at their absolute best when listened to from beginning to end?

1. Blackalicious - Blazing Arrow
2. Prince Paul - A Prince Among Thieves
3. Radiohead - OK Computer
4. Yo La Tengo - I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass
5. Muse - Black Holes and Revelations

A Prince Among Thieves is awesome. Steady Slobbin' is the best blowjob hip hop track ever written. Blazing Arrow's a lot of fun, too. However, I do believe you asked for a list of beginning to end albums:

UNKLE - Psyence Fiction (Already listed, I know, but it just isn't right out of order)
The Minutemen - Double Nickles on the Dime
Hive - Devious Methods
The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots
Sublime - 40 oz. to Freedom

OK, time for 5 albums from me. Hard to boil it down to five titles. Apologies to the dozens that could have appeared here any other day. Ah, choices...

Freedom's Children - Astra
Swans - White Light from the Mouth of Infinity
Pink Floyd - The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (mono version)
Music Emporium - s/t

I will add my five.......

Post by Snakesauce » Mon Feb 18, 2008 1:45 pm

1) Goo Goo Dolls - Hold Me Up
Back when they were punk. Cover of Prince's Never Take The Place of Your Man
2) Ben Folds Five - Whatever and Ever Amen
"Give me my money back, you bitch"
3) The Eagles - anything from when they were country
Modern country music is so terrible, but the Eagles version of country pop was just cool.
4) Mother Love Bone - Self Titled
Just check it out if you haven't already
5) Mojo Nixon - Whereabouts Unknown
His last album before he became a DJ. Check out tie my pecker to my leg ............................. if you dare
I woke up this morning with a case of stinky finger
Last night I must have been the designated drinker

Joy Division - Substance
http://www.mediafire.com/?4t5dmlxmozg
Weird half "best of" half "b sides" of the band that (unfortunately) brought you goth kids. Unstoppable, legendary, etc; you are already familiar with "love will tear us apart" even if you are a clueless unbeliever.



Running with the "mild side of indie rock" idea i'm getting from this thread, here's a random Guided By Voices record (Under the Bushes, Under the Stars)
http://www.mediafire.com/?4xwpkndmk1w
and another (Alien Lanes)
http://www.mediafire.com/?740mnfmntec



British music probably related to dying in the forest by way of space aliens, Flying Saucer Attack. Guy from Third Eye Foundation was in this band for a second; they are awesome, this is their first record.
http://www.mediafire.com/?dgotyryweyd



Neu! - Neu! '72
http://www.mediafire.com/?7ej20gygkgo
unstoppable justifiable legendarity. everyone i have ever met loves hallogallo. warning: hearing this has been known to reduce stereolab fans to tears over their favorite band's lack of originality.



Sonic Youth are of course kings of indie rock, one of the first bands to jump to a major, got Nirvana signed (thurston and kim told david geffen to sign nirvana), and can't stop making good records well into old age.

Sonic Death Live Tape: http://www.mediafire.com/?0dxwtq4mhjn

Confusion is Sex: http://www.mediafire.com/?9tm1got2wvg

Murray Street: http://www.mediafire.com/?6tmo3ckdimx
Sonic Nurse: http://www.mediafire.com/?egmnb1xdmmj
Rather Ripped: http://www.sendspace.com/file/0r2iaq

The "golden era" is probably evol through dirty, by which i mean a combination of accessibility and weirdness. daydream nation is the classic; teenage riot (youtube link if you somehow have never heard this band) is at this point pretty much the definitive anthem of being an "alternative" (goth, punk, shit kid, whatever) teenager in the late 90s and will no doubt continue appearing on movie soundtracks from now to infinity.




Mogwai is kind of epic loud indie rock. Big with the kids in "the day".
http://www.mediafire.com/?c4ybt1dd13l



Songs: Ohia - your girlfriend will like this
http://www.mediafire.com/?3muwwwy17nz





Polvo - Today's Active Lifestyles - fuckin' ang-u-lar, dude. like if the kind of guys who are usually in prog bands were poor and listened to the sex pistols and wire all the time

you need to hear this record if things like modest mouse and the shins interest you at all. even if they don't. the shins' video for new slang features an homage to the cover of this record.

u.s. maple - sang phat editor

this is one seriously fucked up record and it is a masterpiece of rock songs that fall apart and swarm into pieces. i would not really recommend downloading this to anyone who hasn't had previous success getting into really bent music; i just had to post it because i think it's a masterpiece. produced by jim o'rourke (of later wilco and sonic youth fame)

bruce springsteen - lost masters alone in colts neck

demos for the perfect record that became "nebraska" - includes the original demo of born in the USA which no one would ever mistake as a pro-reagan theme song.

Eisley- Room Noises
Pearl Jam- Vitalogy
White Zombie- Astro-Creep 2000
Beatles- White Album
Kris Kristofferson- Self-titled

Fair warning- Eisley is a melodic indie banded fronted by two teen girls. Not emo, but you're gonna lose some macho points if you listen too long. Hench the Zombie. :D

I'd say that's as accurate description of Eisley as ever was.

Seriously though, they're a quality band, good choice. Room Noises is an especially great album, fantastic background music for when a special lady friend is stopping by. Or you're coming back from a pedicure. Whichever.

When I do lsiten to Eisley, I like to think to myself: 'I'm listening to a teenager sing about her feelings right now, but I'm still way more masculine than Skullhead.'

The only bad thing about Room Noises is the version of Telescope Eyes they put on there. The old version was/is tons better.

Sleep Through the Static is largely disappointing, though not a bad listen. Here are five of my favs:

01. Saves the Day - Stay What You Are
02. EvE6 - Self Titled (Horrorscope is also amazing)
03. Biggie Smalls - Greatest Hits
04. NIN - The Downward Spiral
05. Jack Johnson - In Between Dreams

I could go on forever, but that's an incredibly varied sample of what I like :)

Definitely, but it makes nice mood music for just reading.

Slap it on, and sit back for an hour.

here's my all-time favorites, at the moment.


Dispatch- Silent Steeples
Incubus- Light Grenades
Tupac- All Eyez on Me (or anything really by him, hard to narrow it down)
State Radio- Year of the Crow
Donnie Darko Soundtrack (best cd of all time imho)


rawr!

Ooh, the Donnie Darko soundtrack is so good! I especially love the version of Mad World on there.

Also, Dispatch (and State Radio) are freaking amazing. I lost my copy of Bang Bang about a year ago, so pissed about that.

The DD soundtrack is fantastic. I was actually working at a hotel that Echo and the Bunnymen were staying at a few years back for SxSW here in town. Nice guys, they tried to buy weed off me.

I know I already played the 5 album game, but I thought I'd take another crack at it since some time has passed.

Top 5 Albums to Get Ready to Party

1.) Gogol Bordello - Gypsy Punks Underdog World Strike (Gypsy Punk, what's not to love?)

2.) Basement Jaxx - Crazy Itch Radio (Just clean, bumpin' House beats.)

3.) Flogging Molly - Swagger (admittedly, some of the tracks here are a little low key, but the upbeat ones more than make up for it. How the FUCK'S Nova Scotia?)

4.) CSS - Cansei de Ser Sexy (I saw these kids open up for Ladytron about a year back, they're the best thing to come from Brazil since Carnaval.)

5.) Scissor Sisters - Scissor Sisters (Ta-Dah has "I Can't Decide", but this is the more upbeat album as a whole. I mean, come on, "Tits on the Radio"? Win.)

Sneaker Pimps: Becoming X.

An album I recently found in our cd collection thanks to the wife. Not my usual listening, but I've been enjoying the hell out of it anyway. Why couldn't they have stayed together and made another one? Damnit egos!

Just because I'm listening doesn't mean I care.


Er... that is, the Sneaker Pimps do have another few albums, though aside from Becoming Remixed, they do not feature the sugary vocals of the lead singer that give Becoming X most of it's appeal. Kelli Dayton (the lead singer on Becoming X) has released at least one album under the name Kelli Ali, that I found enjoyable, but nothing especially moving.
