Actually that dude might like Long Distance Calling too.....  they're a very riff-centered band. 

Why are you talking about him like he's not here?

 

Has anyone been listening to the new Toundra? Any opinions out there? I like it, don't like IV very much (I've tried to like it), so I am happy about this one. For full disclosure, I is my favorite by far.

Haha just piggybacking off of Don's comment.  Literally meant nothing by it. 

 

I didn't realize Vortex was released already!  Digging in now.

I listened to it once through the other day. I thought it was more of the same, maybe a step down from IV, but still extremely engaging and worthy of standing up to earlier material. I'm surprised you don't like IV! In the back of my mind I always pegged you and I as having very similar tastes, but I think IV is probably their best, along with II.

Yeah, we do have similar tastes. I always pay attention when you recommend something, and generally like it. I think IV has a couple of good tunes but it doesn't flow nearly as well as their other records, but I feel like I'm missing something because lots of people love it. I think you are dead on that Vortex is more of the same, but I'm ok with that. I'm not someone that is always looking for bands to find inventive ways to write music. While it can be nice, I find when bands stray into new territory, I lose interest. There are definitely notable exceptions. 

 

II and III are excellent, but I has that hardcore influence that waned as they matured. Holy hell, some of those riffs are catchy.

Hi y'all. I came back again, and already spent more money than I meant to on records I didn't know were coming out, so there's that.

Anything exciting happen here while I was away?

EDIT: fucked up & thought I posted this in the SmallTalk thread, so to keep it on-topic...

My dudes in Au Revoir played a sick show about 4 blocks from my house last week, and they ripped it. Best set I've seen them play.

They just killed it the other day over here at Dunk!  They played Sundowning, Repose, and one other single before playing all of Veles in it's entirety.  It was fucking sweet.  Only the 2nd time they've ever played the whole record.

Emin from Azerbaijan (Violet Cold) has cranked out a Trilogy, Sommermorgen: Innocence, Joy, and Nostalgia, which is up on bandcamp now.  It's a progression /slight divergence in direction from his previous material. I hear no black metallish elements whatsoever until the end of III with just a little blasteating going on. Happened to listen backwards, III, II, then I -- then in proper order.

FFO lots of reverb, delay, major chords and uplifting mood, some ambient postrock like earrly Hammock  in the first two, chirping birds, etc. with occasional bursts -- and then by III we're getting some more intensity. Just a great listen all the way through while doing paperwork. I don't know if I'd be requesting vinyl, but I know I will continue to visit III. (I'd buy a tape to go with my Magic Night cassette *cough, cough*) ;)

I guess that's why I posted. Didn't picture him going in this direction, and while not epic/game-changing, etc. the world seems to a better place with this release.

The remastering of this sounds great; the live feed was good too but they kill it with the new mix/master.

So ridiculously good! Was great to finally see these guys live last weekend!

Right?  That was an intense set for me....  Rosetta does things to me emotionally that no other band really does.  I'm not sure why.  It must be the unhinged power and emotion coming out of Armines voice, combined with his brilliant lyrics and the spacey atmospheric guitars overlaid upon the crushing grooves. 

 

 

Also, I spoke with him after the set for a good while about the music.  I asked him if there was ever a situation in which they'd play TGS material again, and he said that Roadburn actually asked them to do a TGS set and they agreed.  But then Roadburn was like "Yeahhhhh but we can't pay you to come over here."  He said it would take them 6 months to get the material back to being ready, and that since Roadburn didn't want to cover their flights or anything, he told them to fuck off haha.  Dude is hilarious. 

 

HOWEVER, he did say that they've talked about re-learning one or two songs at a time, and randomly slipping them into sets here and there, unannounced.  Time to never miss another Rosetta show again I guess :D

Wyatt E was maybe my favorite surprise discovery of the festival.  That set was incredible.  Also, it was great meeting you too bud!  I hope I lived up somewhat to my storied reputation haha.

Not sure how many people have already seen this, but I Hear Sirens is pressing their S/T EP for its 10th anniversary. One of the most solid post-rock bands ever in my opinion - for some reason they just never made it big. Hopefully this means that we'll see a press of Beyond the Sea... before too long.

My buddy just showed me them finally, and has been raving about them for years.  I've listened to this EP like 5 times now since coming back from Dunk.  Was going to make a thread about it last night but never got around to it.  These guys are fantastic.  I love the use of piano, and the vocals on track 3 are wonderful.  The last track is without question my favorite though. 

 

 

 

In other news, This Patch of Sky has made it big in the Far East!  Their music was featured in a McDonalds ad!
