I Liked It!
Still so busy working on the whole LA project that I don't really have time for blogging or much else besides. Some more scattered thoughts, then.
1. Personally, I think that Reformation! Post-TLC is a freakin' great album. Ragged and understated, it recalls Room to Live more than anything else. "Insult Song" is an instant classic, to these ears, at least.
2. Was Philip K Dick a cat lover? Apparently, yes but It's hard to find many details beyond that. Does this help?
What a guy! Anyone who can provide more details on this subject will receive my eternal gratitude and maybe a prize, if they're lucky.
3. I've just started trying to fancy up the connect_icut website. The first part of these efforts involved finally posting some music on the site. Consequently, you are now invited to listen to an MP3 of "Advanced Distortion" from the new album.
4. While I'm barely writing anything coherent nowadays, the rest of the gang are producing some of their best material yet. After Saelan's awesome character assassination of the Arcade Fire, Carl hits us with a stupendous essay about The Young Gods. No wonder he hasn't had time to send those Adventures in Stereo albums he promised me (due to my high office, other bloggers are required to send me any UK post-rock obscurities they may have in their possession).
5. The New Electronic Underground just keeps on revealing great artists. Where are these people coming from? Seems that, for the most part, I find out about - and hear - them via Mapadasical. Case in point, Mark Templeton. Never heard of him before but listen to how great this song is.
6. K-Punk mentions Buffy but - shame on him - he's never actually seen the show or, at least, he's never seen "Once More with Feeling". Does this help?
