Almost Unbearably Goth


I've been feeling ever increasingly, almost unbearably goth, lately.

Sisters of Mercy - "Afterhours" - surely a rite of passage for the young Goth
The Rose of Avalanche - anything
The Glove - Cure project bonus disc with Robert Smith on vocals
Last song on the new Sonic Youth album "Massage The History" is GOTH AS HELL

10,000 Maniacs - Blind Man's Zoo (1989)



Currently revisiting with this album...

what happened was about a month ago, I heard a song playing in a pharmacy. It was 10,000 Maniacs and I thought it was from Blind Man's Zoo but my memory betrayed me and it was actually "City of Angels" from In My Tribe. Yeah, that's a fantastic song.

But Blind Man's Zoo wasn't that bad of an album, either. I quite enjoyed it at the time. And "Trouble Me" seems to sound 5 times better now than it did at the time.

"Headstrong" is playing now. I haven't heard these songs for a billion years. Fantastic stuff.

Sonic Youth - The Eternal (2009)


I don't know how or why, but I ended up at a Sonic Youth gig last night. I hadn't bought a ticket but nevertheless found myself in an area next the stage where a lot of people had gathered. You couldn't really see the band at all, although at one point I did see Thurston put his guitar over his head. But they were so good musically that I had tears streaming down my face. I haven't followed anything they've done for quite awhile. At one point I thought I was going to flip over their last album Rather Ripped but instead ended up bored with it. I've just checked out their new album The Eternal and it is the absolute DEAL. It's really thrilling to see how they have honed their craft over so many years of doing this. A masterpiece for them, for sure. And surprisingly a lot of it is quite accessible and catchy! There's even this chorus in "Poison Arrow" that makes me think "wow that is such a pretty chorus for a Sonic Youth song! How crazy!" I also enjoy hearing them sing on each other's songs for example I think there are Kim backing vocals in there somewhere that are pretty amazing considering she's never been one of the best singers in the world. Another thing I like about the new album is the way it's produced and how MINIMAL it is in times it calls to mind their first album and also Krautrock...

The Damned - Curtain Call


Goth? Check. Punk? Check. Cool? Check.

Bill Nelson - Contemplation


This song was on his album Getting The Holy Ghost Across from 1986 (which was released in the US in a slightly different form with the title "On A Blue Wing"). There's something so free and easy about this song that it almost makes me cry. It's kindof like I'm sailing on a sailboat or something. You Tube has another version of this song from 2007. It sounds quite different and I'm not really familiar with it.

Native Tongue EP, 1981


Here's the Native Tongue EP again, uploaded for you with more of the insert & a bumper sticker that came with it, too!

Native Tongue - self-titled EP, 1981

This is the Boston band who sorta borrowed from Gang Of Four. It's great stuff.

Kate Bush - All The Love (1982)


oKAY so there are some really crappy parts in this, there are still some great parts too. And she's a goddess. I don't believe in god, but I believe in Kate Bush.

Native Tongue EP & Sinatras


I have not forgotten that I have records to rip for this blog today. In fact, I am going to disconnect the computer here when the current song is over in order to rip them. Thanks.

Faust - Jennifer


Someone recently turned me on to this song. I had no idea I would ever like any Faust, because everything I've heard of them thus far was really difficult. This song just rolls along like a stream in the country. Pretty hippie-ish, I guess. Donovan would be proud. :)

Bill Nelson - Hope For The Heartbeat


This song just occured to me tonight out of nowhere and I realized I hadn't heard it in way too long. That's what happens when you quit playing vinyl, I guess. Argh. Anyway, this is high quality early 80's synth pop. Not throw-away or cheesy, though. This guy has a lot of class.

Native Tongue is now reuploaded!


Okay, I finally got the Native Tongue album reuploaded now. Sorry it took so long. You can find it here.

Linda Ronstadt - Poor, Poor, Pitiful Me (1977)


Okay I'm almost sorry I posted the last one now cause this one takes the cake and eats it. Every time I used to get to the end of a stressful quarter of school, I would play this song when the exams were over. Hahah.

Buckinghams - Don't You Care (1967)


This is one of the most amazing visual/musical things that has ever happened to my life. This song is incredibly produced for a 60's record. Just ridiculous! LISTEN TO THOSE DRUMS!!! Wow. This song just flips my wig on so many levels it's not funny. This is like, the Einstein, the proof of the pudding of POP MUSIC. Yeah.
