Everytime you post in the now playing thread I think to myself that you have great and very similar to my taste in music. This has confirmed it. "Used to vacation", "Can't take that away from me" and the White Stripes' Jolene cover? I officially love your taste in music.
Awww shucks, thanks. I'm pretty sure I've noticed our similar tastes whenever you post about music too.
I spent way too much time cropping this list down from 100 or so. I'm throwing in the towel because I know Lumps digs some of these. Here's my top 40 not including Black Dice, who get their own top 10:
Animal Collective - Banshee Beat Animal Collective - For Reverend Green Animal Collective - Safer Atlas Sound - Attic Lights The Beatles - Let It Be Bjorrito - Who Is It Bjorrito - Headphones Bjorrito - Pluto The Books - Vogt Dig for Kloppervok Boredoms - Super Are Boredoms - 7→ (Boriginal) Built to Spill - Stab Crosby, Stills & Nash - Suite: Judy Blue Eyes David Bowie - Changes Deerhunter - Little Kids Excepter - Presidence Explosions in the Sky - Memorial Fugazi - Promises Fugazi - I'm So Tired Godspeed You Black Emperor! - Providence (does this count?) Holy Smokes - Do the Death The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Bold as Love Kraftwerk - Autobahn The Ladies - And Them The Ladies - Mandatory Psycho-Freakout Lightning Bolt - Megaghost Melt-Banana - Introduction for Charlie Melt-Banana - Lost Parts Stinging Me So Cold Melt-Banana - Type: Ecco System Melt-Banana - Last Target on the Last Day Mountains - Sequel NOFX - The Decline Oneida - 10:30 at the Oasis Radiohead - Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors Sigur Ros - Ny Batteri Sun Ra - Space Is the Space Streetlight Manifesto - The Big Sleep Thee Oh Sees - Warm Slime Tortoise - Blackbird The Velvet Underground - Heroin (totally had this one on my list before reading davers')
My actual top 10 favorite songs: Black Dice - Roll Up Black Dice - Drool Black Dice - Skeleton Black Dice - Gore Black Dice - Snarly Yow Black Dice - Smiling Off Black Dice - Motorcycle Black Dice - Vegetable Black Dice - Night Flight Black Dice - Manoman
This will make one hell of a playlist, as 6 of these songs clock in over 20 minutes long, and a few others in the 10-15 range.
And I know that I'm damned if I never get out And maybe I'm damned if I do But with every other beat I got left in my heart You know I'd rather be damned with you Well, If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned Dancing through the night with you If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned Dancing through the night Dancing through the night Dancing through the night with you!!!!
Chud, "Rainbow" is such a good song. It's funny how Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock seem to rarely get mentioned when people are talking about Post-Rock bands.
I think Talk Talk as a band in general gets overlooked. They made one of the more incredible transitions from their first album to their last. What started of as glitchy new wave "Talk Talk" and "It's My Life" morphed slowly into what I consider two of the best post-rock albums ever done. The sparseness of the music coupled with the mumbling and grumbling that is Mark Hollis is just amazing.
Edit: Have you listened to Mark Hollis - Mark Hollis?
