    Also if you're looking for more stuff along similar lines check out the new album by Welsh band The School called Reading Too Much Into Things Like Everything. It's very 60's pop-inspired and it's as addictive as fuck.

    Thanks for that. I will check it out.




  • Ben Howard - Every Kingdom.

    Saw him last week on Later, brilliant performance.







  • Anyone recommend any Flaming Lips albums pre-Soft Bulletin? Was recently watching the Fearless Freaks documentary on Sky Arts which got me digging out the few Lips albums that I have.

    In order of preference I have Yoshimi (****in masterpiece!), At War with the Mystics, and Soft Bulletin.

    Also, gave a listen to the latest effort Embryonic, wasn't really getting into it. Should I give it another go?

    Get your paws on Clouds Taste Metallic and Transmissions From The Satellite Heart, you will not be disappointed. Their mid-90's era is my favourite Flaming Lips period, the sound on those albums isn't as heavily-produced as their later stuff and has a rawer, crunchier guitar-driven sound. They are both magnificent albums with plenty of memorable tunes.




  • Just bought AU's last labum, Both Lights, released in April. Possibly an acquired taste, but personal favourites, and there are some pretty amazing tunes on this. Listen to Solid Gold.

  • Some albums I'd recommend, now these are entirely dependent on taste.

    Radiohead: OK Computer
    Muse: Showbiz
    Nirvana: In Utero (Very Under-appreciated album)
    Pantera: Vulgar Display of Power
    Rage Against the Machine: Rage Against the Machine
    Weezer: Pinkerton (I personally prefer it to the blue album)
    System of a Down: Mezmerize
    Red Hot Chili Peppers: Blood Sugar Sex Magik

    Its a lot I know, just some personal recommendations.




  • The Maccabees- Given to the Wild
    Linkin Park- Hybrid Theory
    Oasis- any of their albums
    Sum 41- All Killer no Filler
    Nirvana- Nevermind and their MTV Unpluged album

    I think you have stumbled into the wrong thread.

    Not alt/indie in the slighest. But you did use their correctly so that makes me happy.

    Quiet you.

    Nirvana shall always be welcomed in this forum as long as I'm around.

    I never thought I'd see the day when a Linkin Park and Sum 41 fan tells someone in an alternative/indie that they don't know music :D

    But since you like Nirvana I suggest that you should look into some of the bands that influenced them, like Melvins, Big Black, Scratch Acid and Mudhoney.

    Thanks for the referals:) Did you know that Kurt Cobain also loved the Beatles? Also Linkin Park and Sum 41 are awesome!!!




  • I'm sorry but you clearly do not know music or you cannot read.

    Please be civil when dealing with other people on boards. That includes not telling people in the music forums that they "clearly do not know music".

    We're in the Alt/Indie forum so while that's a very broad and oft-debated genre we do ask people to try and keep in the general area that it encompasses.

    Thanks.




  • haha, I'm glad I decided to catch up on this thread.




  • Battles - Gloss Drop
    The Postal Service - Give Up
    Portrico Quartet - Self Titled
    Clams Casino - Intrumental Mixtape 2




  • Recommend an Arctic Monkeys album?

  • My two cents is Ryan Adams Demolition, listen to it, nuff said




  • Not sure if anyone'll read this, but you should really check out the album 23 by Blonde Redhead.

    Another great one I've listened (again) to lately is Loveless by My Bloody Valentine.

    Loveless is a classic, and I'm sure there are many worn vinyl copies lying around.

    My new guy (new to me) is Richard Hawley.

    I got into Loveless by that kind of shoegaze backdoor. Got into a band called Lush in the start, then to Blonde Redhead, Asobi Seku (all shoegaze), before moving over to My Bloody Valentine. Hearing some of Kevin Shield's music on Lost for Translation was fantastic, too.

    Seems that shoegaze, real shoegaze, is a dying breed, though.

    What's this Richard Hawley like? I can't get Youtube here.

    He's a guy from Sheffield, with a voice like velvet and sings about his tortured/romantic outlook on things. Very smooth. We're not talking shoegaze here!
    My wife describes him as a latter day Eddie Cochrane, which is not far off the mark, but don't let that put you off.
    Try him on spotify or his site may let you stream some tracks.
    He's also a decent guitarist and was briefly in Pulp.

    If you're looking for some recent shoegaze, try The War on Drugs. Also Kurt Vile's Smoke Ring for my Halo (I think he may have been part of War on Drugs at one point).




  • richard hawley is brilliant give coles corner a listen




  • +90 to all the recommendations for 'Yankee Hotel Foxtrot' by Wilco, prob my favourite record ever. Shortly after its release Jeff Tweedy and Glenn Kotche of Wilco recorded an album under the name 'Loose Fur' (the album was also called Loose Fur) with Jim 'O Rourke, the guy who mixed YHF and produced the follow up, 'A Ghost is Born (also excellent). Tweedy and Kotche also played on 'O Rourkes album 'Insignificance', released around the same time. All these records are v v good and worth checking out IMHO.

    Hardly, weakest album of their discography




  • Ah hello.

    I'm in a bit of musical lull recently, I can't seem to find anything new that I really love. Very few albums in the last 7 or 8 years have stuck with me longer than a month. I end up going back to the old reliables that I have played to death. I scour review sites and blogs but nothing takes. The old reliables being albums like

    QOTSA - Songs for the Deaf
    Dredg - El Cielo
    Mew - ...And the Glass Handed Kites

    but especially Mars Volta - Deloused in the Comatorium. Nothing has ever blown me away as consistently as this does. Power, musicality, dynamics, originality, groove, hooks - it just ticks all my ruddy boxes.

    Can anyone suggest any bands/albums that might come close to this?

    brillant stuff, one of a kind really, overplayed deloused , gonna stick it on the phone for work tomorrow, try 'ride' albums from early 90's , or get last.fm similar sounding bands sometimes crop up




  • I think Frames by Oceansize is one of those albums everyone needs in their collection.

    I would say misery is a butterfly is their masterpiece..23 is still good though
