Thoughts? I liked the 45. got it on drip before i let my account lapse. gonna give the snippets a listen to tonight. i dig the art though.

 

 

 

further expansion of the ST sound into new directions. i'm curious  if we'll ever get another Anika lp on ST. or another boardwalk or another chrome canyon or even another stepkids... I'd really love jonti to return, have been listening to sine & moon lately. but silk rhodes is sounding pretty good from what i recall, that'll do for now

Chord progression is mad derivative. I feel like all these throwback groups are just taking the blueprint of older songs and dressing them up with some new production techniques/instrumentation and then selling it to the public as "innovation." I have no doubt that plenty of people are gonna like this though.

Really similar chords, arrangements, and instrumentation.

I'm allergic to hipness in music, and Silk Rhodes seem like they're trying to very hip.

 

The stuff I like is always changing, but I listen to a lot of Madlib, Dilla, John Frusciante, Ornette Coleman – generally the sorts of artists whom you get the feeling would die if they couldn't express themselves through music. Also Zach Hill/Death Grips and The Mars Volta, although I kinda fell off listening to them.

gotcha.  but aren't all of those artists considered "hip" in their own respective circles?  to me, it seems like you just can't enjoy anything with even a slightly mainstream appeal...which is fine, but you come off as very snobbish and elitist about your musical tastes, like most people are dumb sheep that just don't get it, mannnnnnnnnnnnnnn...

 

haha.

 

but in all seriousness, i listen to a lot of the groups you mentioned, and lately i've been on a major LA post-punk tip -- but that doesn't mean i'm gonna bash anyone who says they like Goldfinger or classic Blink-182.  you shouldn't let the politics of who knows what band influence your decision on what makes "good" music; that's like something that high-school sophomore James used to do, and trust me, it's not a good look.

Anyone know the story behind these guys?  Those guitars and strings (especially on Group 1987) really have that Truth+Soul vibe.  The track sounds like it could've fit right on that Lee Fields record.  Was curious to see if these guys had any relation.

Oddly surprised this wasn't mentioned, but fun fact of the day...

 

I know that only a about 30 copies actually contain "1 drop" somewhere on the sheet.

 

Has anyone attempted to find the "dose" on the  Pains 7"?

 

This goes far beyond Willy Wonkas golden ticket search, and I hope I am 1 of the lucky people to find it.
