Country Comfort is a great tune off of that album. So is Where to Now St. Peter?. I'll give that album a front to back listen though sometime on a Friday night after 11pm.

I really want to listen to Dead Man's Pop and am interested to see what they've done with Don"t Tell A Soul. Because I'm one of those people who never cared for that album.  In fact, until now my only keeper on that album has been Rock 'N Roll Ghost, even though it's about as far from a typical Replacements song as can be. By the way, I enjoy Hootenanny almost as much as Tim and Let It Be.

Pleased To Meet Me was always my favorite.   Don't Tell a Soul (or as some Mats fans call it Don't Sell Your Soul) has great songs on it, bu t the were a little too slick.  The re-do isn't jarring, it's subtle, but it sounds a lot like the proper follow up to Pleased To Meet Me.     All Shook Down felt almost like a Paul Westerberg solo album and I guess it kind of was.   

 

Its gonna be Pick of The Week on Under The Radar this coming Sunday (October 6th).  I will probably play quite a bit of it too -  four from the re-done DTAS,k one of the Tom Waits outtakes and at least one of the live tracks.

All Shook Down is the only one I ever liked.  I know, terrible take.

I haven't given them another chance in a long time, my tastes have changed considerably since, so I should probably revisit.

Not terrible at all.......it's a very good album,  just more like Paul's solo career than the 'Mats.

Of course, my oldest will probably be married with children within 5 years of that, so maybe I won't have some much free time as I transition into being a grandfather.

I'm depressed.  I used to be young and cool.

 

Or young, at least.

Don't forget about your needs brother

I can always count on a new album by the New Pornographers - a collection of Vancouverites plus honorary Vancouverite Neko Case - to have a handful of catchy tracks on it. Their latest album, In The Morse Code Of Bright Lights, is no exception. No Dan Bejar (of Destroyer) on this album though.

It is a very good album.  Another future Pick Of The Week.    A whole lot has come out in a short period of time, so I have Picks Of The Week bunched up by Liam Gallagher (great, great album) this past week,  The Replacements next week,  Temples,  New Porn, elbow, Starcrawler - a lot of second-half gems this year.   New Porn will probably be in my Top 10 of the year.

Came home,  changed out of my work clothes, put on a pair of khakis and a well-worn sweatshirt from my alma mater, and stretched out on my recliner. So I could lie back and listen to Wilco's new album released to day, Ode To Joy.

Honestly one of the greatest guitar solos of all time. I will fight you.

Have not heard anything from 1984 in awhile...I'll Wait comes on Pandora and I feel like I have been transported back in time for the first few seconds.  I love how music can make you feel like that.

I hate the Lumineers.   I hate Vance Joy.  I hate Mt. Joy.   I just hate that granola pop crap.  It's boring and it all sounds the same.  I loved the first album from The Head & The Heart and the second was good and then they signed to a major label and they've become the Lumineers and I now hate them too.      And all the Granola Pop bands have guys with a beard and non-baseball hat.  It's like a uniform.

what's it like?   I love me some nels cline but the last record I listened to really turned me off, it might just be me being a crumudgeon but I'm really not into intentionally lo-fi stuff.

Sky Blue Sky will forever hold a place in my heart.  One of my favorite indie-rock-ish guitar albums ever.  Nels ftw.

A bit underwhelming on first listen, as it seemed to be a pretty tight variation of the same song, 11 times. I did think it would be a good soundtrack to a fairly slow, longish Sunday morning run, as it has the same rhythm throughout. But it did start to open up for me on 2nd and 3rd listen, especially a few songs near the end of it.  One and a Half Stars, Citizens and Love Is Everywhere (Beware) are 3 pretty good songs.

With the 2019 Rugby World Cup in full swing, I hark back to 2011 and my favorite anthem performance ever. Hayley is an angel!

A couple of my 90s throwbacks I've always wanted to see in person but never have... last week I finally saw Tool in concert. Just a great show. 

Today, I was at work, and it just so happens that another artist I know stopped by who I know is friends with the Deftones. I was telling him about how a client of mine gets to go backstage and meet them in San Diego on saturday. Then he casually tells me he has 2 entry plus backstage passes left if I want them. YES. Pretty damn excited for this one.

Every now and then a song from two decades ago that I've never heard before will be thrown at me and I'll want to hear it again. Like this Neil Finn song, She Will Have Her Way, which was featured in the penultimate scene of the series-ending episode of The Affair tonight.

John Mann, lead singer of Vancouver's Spirit of the West goes "home for a rest" today, you could say. Dead at 57, early onset Alzheimer's. The great Canadian drunken singalong song:

Black Crowes Cabin Fever resulted in what is IMO their greatest albums (Before The Frost....Unitl The Freeze). I know @Oblong will dig this.
