New DBT album on 1/31/20 and in case you thought they might not be continuing along the same lines as “American Band” the track list includes a song called “Babies In Cages”.
The new songs I heard were fucking great.

Damn. Reminded me of a song I haven’t heard in maybe ten years.

Really, really liking this Angel Olson album (All Mirrors). Probably would be my favorite album of 2019 that I've heard so far. I read there's two versions of the album and the same songs stripped down are going to be released later this year, but the versions with the orchestra are pretty freaking awesome.

Julia, take your man home
He's just sitting at the bar
Carving shapes that look like dicks into the wood
Julia, take your man home
He keeps running in and out of the street
With a weed between his teeth he calls a rose
Julia, take your man home
He keeps talking about New Jersey and cocaine
And some person he keeps saying is made of glass

Man I was so excited when you posted this and gave it a listen and...I really don't like it. I wanted to though! Should be right up my alley.

This is The Chicago Tribune's one-star review of Radiohead's The Bends. Think this guy wants this one back?
Along with Beck's "Loser," Radiohead's smash single "Creep" made up a sort of low self-esteem hit parade for disaffected pop fans. Lacking that dubious appeal, there's little on the British group's second record to suggest they'll be more than one-hit wonders. Thom Yorke's ethereal vocals and woebegone melodies are tuneful enough, but too self-absorbed to be catchy. The sweeping, extravagant choruses and Seattle wanna-be guitar parts are similarly heavy-handed and excessive: the clumsy, unpleasant guitar scorch of "Bones" and "My Iron Lung" are particularly cringe-inducing. If the band had dispensed with the grandiose dramatic effects, songs like "The Bends" and "Black Star" could have been catchy little rockers. Instead, Radiohead's overwrought, pompous music makes them sound like alternative rock`s answer to the Moody Blues.

Last night I ran into this article about Murakami and his record collection: A 3,350-Song Playlist of Music from Haruki Murakami’s Personal Record Collection

And yes, it has the link to his Spotify playlist: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7Lxqh ... s7Yj6htVHA

My daughter is in the middle of gymnastics season, which means every thursday night and most saturday afternoons I spent a couple of hours here: https://diamondknot.com/brewbrewpubmlt and I swear everytime I'm in here, I here the same 5 Dead songs playing on the Jukebox...Touch of Grey, Friend of the Devil, Truckin, Sugar Magnolia, and Scarlet Begonias. It never fails. Its so strange.

And then it changes to Bob Marley....

I know a lot of you guys are fans, but fuck Weezer when they do a cover. I'm driving in, and I hear a cover of "Billie Jean", and I said to myself, "this has to be Weezer, this is arranged just like the original". I can't stand that shit. Every cover doesn't have to be IZ or Johnny Cash, but the difference between that and Chris Cornell's cover is that there's something new or different. When Weezer covers, it's exactly just the same song. That's the musical equivalent of jerking it into a sock. Even Marilyn Manson puts his own spin on his covers. If there's such a thing a hate-listen, I did that all last summer with their bullshit cover of "Africa". It's not fucking cute.

Fuck you, Rivers Cuomo. And while you're at it, fuck Ryan Adams, too, for that cheeseball cover of Taylor Swift's album.
Speaking of covers ...



(There's something offputting about the youtube music "videos" that are just a stationary picture. Really ruins it.)

Strand of Oaks opening a bunch of those, which I assume is the biggest thing he's done to date.

Yeah, I'm going to miss the Isbell/Strand shows in STL by one week, so looks like I'll have to go up to Reno for the show up there, though trading the temps here for up there for a few days is a win-win for me.

I might be curious enough to try given how many people here really like Isbell.

Sturgill Simpson...not a fan of the music business.

Sturgill Simpson Has A Lot To Get Off His Chest
I’m done working for them. I’m done giving babies away. I equate it to, if you owned a fucking dry cleaners, and it took off, and somebody showed up like, “Hey, we want to buy your dry cleaners. You can sit here and run the counter, but we’ll keep all the money.” Like, what other business model would anybody fucking think that makes sense in? And honestly, I don’t really see what they’ve done that I couldn’t have done myself, probably better. They haven’t delivered on any of their promises, so I’m fucking done there. But they wanted me to promote the tour, so here we are.
