  • kitsch hey man would you be interested in reviewing an upcoming split release i [assimilation] have with drekka? were both bloomington atmospheric industrial projects. we played a show together and recorded it. then we traded the material from each other's sets and remixed it. if you are interested, hit me back and i'll hook you up with a promo. you're the staff that i think would "get" this music the most.

  • robin i find i appreciate this site most drunk and least hungover, yessir. writing for this site drunk is also my only mode of being staff anymore. that swans album is pretty ****ing intense, don't know if i can process it at the moment. folk punk is my life tho. although really i just live off ghost mice
    July 25 01:53 PM
  • robin yes! ghost mice have been ruling my life lately. like AJJ but sincere. sounds like a good balance buddy. i'm exactly the same on the drinking side of things and as of today also on the work side, altho it's volunteer work so the drinking side may vanish soon. our lives are in sync obv

  • Winesburgohio Thanks brah, w/r/t plot strands left untangled I would've expected those even had he completed The Pale King before eliminating his map for keeps. Infinite Jest kind of ambiguously alludes to resolutions in it's first segment but yeah it was all pretty vague. Plus I'm okay with it being unfinished-2666 was equally as stunning, if not more so, than 'Savage Detectives'. It was just whether or not he went overboard on the intellectual flourish thing that concerned me. ANYWAY Thank you very much, I
    May 31 04:31 AM
  • klap just started reading stoner, thanks for the rec baby. also picked up infinite jest
    May 29 08:52 PM
  • Winesburgohio Hey joshuatree, I see that you rec'd 'The Pale King' on the Klap4books list. What's it like? I live in New Zealand/ cultural wasteland and they're selling for 50 bucks a pop and the public library haven't ordered any copies. :'(. Is it worth the investment? I adore pretty much everything DFW has put his name too but idk it's unfinished so ARGH ADVICE PLZ

  • kanecooper "just saw your little comment thingy, and just realized you've already listened to both titus albums enough to make really s***ty opinions about them"haha i love you
    February 7 10:27 PM
  • DaveyBoy Cool. Ta for that.
    February 4 01:05 AM
  • DaveyBoy Quick question on Titus. Your rating from album 1 to 2 jumped significantly. Why.
    January 27 06:27 AM
  • robin you're lovely. :)
    January 14 03:40 AM
  • robin you're like the guy i'd most want to hear grampa-simpson esque stories from. only now i just bother you relentlessly on this.

    December 22 02:52 PM
  • robin you'll never be that to me!
    November 16 11:20 AM
  • thebhoy and William Walton. Also, checkout some Antonin Dvorak, particularly Humuresque in G, Op. 32 and Yo-Yo Ma does a great version of his cello concerto no. 16 I believe. Also, Frederic Chopin's Serenade for Strings and Piano is lovely. That should be a good start.
    November 15 12:19 AM
  • thebhoy hmm well in terms of choral music I don't have a very wide vocabulary. As for classical: Edward Elgar - Enigma Variations is one of my favourite pieces ever, you would probably recognize Variation No. 10 (or 9? I forget) "Nimrod", famous in movies, etc. Ralph Vaughan-Williams - A London Symphony, or Fantasia on a Theme from Thomas Tallis Gustav Holst - The Planets Check out my review of James Ehnes, a violinst who does a symphony each from Elrich Korngold, Samuel Barber (not Adeggio)...

  • robin im having a really hard time listening to anything old/new really. id say i'm just obsessed with sufjan but i'm just at loss as to what to listen to. :( x what choo been doing?

    November 8 02:00 PM
  • Enotron i actually have a really hyperbolic review for it as a 5, so by all means you should write one for it. my review is mainly just payin my respects and what not.
    October 30 10:16 AM
  • Enotron also in case you were wondering, massiveattack is a complete toolbag (js)
    October 29 06:46 PM
  • Enotron oh is it streaming? I've only heard the one track that I found streaming, but it was really great. almost sounded a little noise-rock influenced. if it's out there though, i'll be listening right when I get home.
    October 29 01:55 PM
  • plane i'm holding off to the release date. my friend and i are planning to go downtown to buy it so the trip home we can hear the whole thing. in the meantime i'm avoiding all deerhunter talk
    September 16 09:38 PM
  • plane bored. are you on fb?
    September 16 12:51 PM
  • plane miss you buddy
    September 15 10:26 AM
  • brutebeard "123"... what does this mean?
    September 12 11:39 PM
  • robertsona i may have asked you this but im always wondering what ur opinion on the actual album the joshua tree is
    September 11 09:50 PM
  • Enotron http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/39002/Tera-Melos-Patagonian-Rats/ it appears the troof has been spoken good sir
    September 8 11:48 PM
  • TMobotron "new album rules but i remember this being kinda gayy"This is about Tera Melos's untitled if you dont remember, but IDK what kind of music you're into, but that album is hands down the best math rock album ever IMO. It's instrumental though so liking Patagonian Rats doesn't at all mean you'll like that, but if you think you might be into it you should give it another listen.
    September 7 11:49 PM
  • chambered89 yeah it took about 4 months for me to really love leaves turn inside you but tonight i was walking home from my friends house in backwoods streets and i put it on and it was awesome thanks for showing me

    June 22 01:47 PM
  • klap hey man what are your thoughts on expo 86? im torn
    June 21 09:07 PM
  • MichaelJordan Yeah, what I meant was that bands like Sonic Youth, Blonde Redhead, and Unwound strike me as a qualitatively different kind of indie than indie groups that came out after the indie explosion in the early 2000s
    May 6 06:22 PM
  • MichaelJordan Hey man yeah unwound is great. Back when indie was indie
    May 5 10:36 AM

  • Kiran have (and really like) hex enduction hour and this nations saving grace, my dad was a big fan :x and with smith always going off about pavement ripping them off, i was bound to check them out eventually
    April 26 08:56 AM
  • Kiran hows the new fall album?
    April 25 12:10 PM
  • Kiran its nothing ill really listen to past the summer but if youre in the mood for tropical, balearic dance stuff, its the best youll get. a bit like air france except with vocals that follow song structure (verse, chorus). fun though, puts me in a good mood. listen to "stay close", its a good indication of the rest of the album.
    April 24 06:03 AM
  • Kiran sweet, i'm on it

  • SeaAnemone just scoured your ratings/decade list to find some new music... 90 Day Men is absolutely fantastic... To Everybody is easily one of my best discoveries in a looooong time
    April 6 06:21 PM
  • klap word, yeah i'm from florida but all my relatives are still in indy so i'm there a fair amount. IU is a sweet campus
    April 5 10:43 PM

    April 5 10:29 PM
  • Skimaskcheck Haha! okay, phew!
    March 31 04:54 AM
  • Skimaskcheck Sorry if you've had to explain this before, but how come you've got Hospice rated as a 1 now? That feels criminal hah!
    March 30 07:25 PM
  • SeaAnemone fixed the review up, that one you were an asshole on... check it out if you want, if not no biggie.
    March 15 07:39 PM
  • SeaAnemone seriously though Cam, thanks for the critique. I appreciate it. You're probably right... while I still stand by my opinions your observation makes me think they probably don't belong in the review.

  • tigergolf06 Did you ever get to check out Discouraged Ones by Katatonia?
    February 4 01:26 PM
  • YouAreMySilence Its cool, I found how to get .rar. Its sooo good, Im not sure about the rating yet though.
    February 3 09:12 PM
  • YouAreMySilence Hey broheim can I ask you the biggest favour? Anyway you can send me Brian McBride's When The Detail Lost Its Freedom for zip file? Cannot find it anywhere.
    January 31 03:20 AM

    January 30 07:57 PM

    January 28 10:00 AM
  • plane now you've started it again
    January 27 09:57 PM
  • plane i have a similar issue
    January 27 09:49 PM
  • Aids So I just listened to Popular Songs by Yo La Tengo for the third time and after thinking "good not great" through the first two spins, I think I'm starting to get why you think it's so good. I looked up reviews while listening (obviously) and your praise intrigued me. Anyway, thanks for that.
    January 27 04:07 AM

    January 21 05:32 PM
  • robin nope, im in what we call 'college' which is essentially the last two years of high school (so ages 16-18 basically). i go to uni next september but have to choose my course like now which is ugh. so yeah im young stuff on sputnik =( i imagine american uni like yours is all frisbees and um that 'frat' word everyone always uses ;)
    January 21 03:52 PM
  • robin been good, sadly pretty much nothing happening in lame south england right now, hence minor influx of reviews and obsession with getting back on da sputnik ball. hows indiana/some other college place you live??
    January 21 02:56 PM
  • robin sounds like i'll learn to love it a.k.a this is ****ing weird
    January 21 01:39 PM
  • robin i cant find this sisterworld album =(
    January 21 01:05 PM
  • klap let's just say that i should probably stay away from all stimulating substances for the foreseeable future
    January 18 09:23 PM
  • klap haha thanks, i still feel like s*** and predict a massive comedown lasting all week. thank god for martin luther king jr.
    January 18 04:36 PM
  • klap hey man waffles just opened up invites, e-mail me your e-mail account (make sure spam filter is off) at rklapper@usc.edu. my email is being gay atm but i should get it later. i'll let you know
    December 25 10:43 PM
  • Electric City "blurbs" for 26-50, but I'll probably write a soundoff anyway

    November 30 11:17 PM
  • klap cam i'm still confused as to why you disliked phoenix so much. enlighten me
    November 30 04:49 PM
  • Minus The Flair okay well i should have two reviews out in the next fortnight - sunny day in glasgow and washed out. haven't heard much of the former but the latter is really cool.and last.fm is crazy mad with ipod scrobbling, though i do ****ing love that album.
    November 23 05:24 AM
  • Minus The Flair why is finding good new music before other people so hard this year? last year was easy. this year, no. now all the good stuff already has good reviews.**** it, i'll probably just review a record from seven years ago that no one cares about just to get back into the swing.
    November 20 08:56 AM
  • robin so i was listening to to everybody and was like... i need some elite recs xx
    November 5 03:53 PM
  • StreetlightRock Dude if you're not on to Pyramids With Nadja yet I suggest you get your s*** in order son.
    November 3 08:05 AM
  • Kashmir09 I know I'm with you; I feel even though it gets recognition, Popular Songs is still criminally underrated. My favorite is still in question, it could literally be any of their five newer albums. I even love "Summer Sun", kaboom
    October 31 07:40 PM
  • Kashmir09 What's your favorite Yo La Tengo record? And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside-Out?
    October 30 04:02 PM
