  • Rikardur Being a uni kid, it's rare for me to have time for new s*** so I've just been gorging over favourites lately: The National, Grizzly Bear (Shields...omg), Mountain Goats, Neurosis, etc. Also been have a nostalgic dive back into Rammstein since I'm learning German...why not. Any good unheard of s*** that you can let me on to? I need to expand more, and your help would surely cut time :)
    September 26 06:53 PM
  • silentpotato thanks man! i like that you keep me up to date :). by the way i have been listening the s*** out of that Sam Amidon album All is Well you sent me a while back. **** is it ever good..
    September 26 06:20 AM
  • Rikardur Checked out both...I liked.
    September 25 07:20 PM
  • Rikardur No, I haven't gotten around to it yet! Any places to recommend starting from? And yeah, I adore abstract folk as well.
    September 18 06:48 PM
  • Rikardur My comments keep getting cut off. I was saying with that last part that I prefer those two albums I mentioned to half of Swans' discog, probably.
    September 16 04:08 PM
  • Rikardur I'm glad! :D You should consider grabbing all their albums if you have not. How I Loved You and We Are Him are my favourites. It's a shame that, even with this new spark in Swans' popularity, people will still overlook Gira's other big project (tAoL). Those two albums I mentioned
    September 16 04:03 PM
  • Rikardur ACTUALLY, listen to The Angels of Light, if you have not. You like Swans, you might dig this. It's Michael Gira's other project between Swans carnations where he focuses more on narrative and melody.
    September 15 10:53 PM
  • Rikardur I'll check those you mentioned too! Thanks! I'm quite busy but I always make time for music ;) The house is great, thank you! A great experience....your own house
    September 15 10:49 PM
  • Lakes. if you want me to...
    September 13 09:38 PM
  • Lakes. nope.
    September 13 08:42 PM
  • Rikardur I'm so sorry for not getting back to you until this late! I literally forgot to respond :$, but I adore what I heard of Sam Amidon. If you know more of that kind of stuff, do link me up, I promise I'll respond sooner now that I am now set up in my new house for school.
    September 10 11:33 PM
  • silentpotato this is some straight up.. ****ing interesting music... i really dig this! you are too kind for taking the time to send me stuff like this :]
    September 1 06:49 AM
  • Rikardur I haven't heard of him! Any recs? I'll check it when I get home.
    August 30 06:17 PM
  • Rikardur Big fan of the abstract? That's awesome! An artist that springs to mind almost immediately is Scott Walker. Check out his albums The Drift and Tilt...pretty eerie "music" right there. Also, only because I was listening to it this morning, try the classic Remain in Light from Talking Heads. I'll have to get back to you with more artists, stuck at work right now and I can't browse through my music folder.

  • Rikardur *your
    August 29 07:59 PM
  • Rikardur I'm a big Swans fanboy, so I consider 80% of their albums to be great or higher. But really, unless you palette of music taste is expansive, you might want to find the album that has a sound which suits you best for now. That's how it worked regarding my first experience. TGA and White Light were the only releases I could get into initially...but then I progressively got into the rest.
    August 29 07:58 PM
  • silentpotato whoa this is all like, mad decent and s***
    August 29 09:39 AM
  • silentpotato i'm flattered man, even though our music taste diverges quite a bit i really respect yours, and the fact that my music appeals to someone like you means a lot to me
    July 15 02:22 AM
  • silentpotato haha i actually kind of thought you might not like it at all, im surprised!
    July 13 10:54 PM
  • silentpotato im glad man!
    July 13 07:35 AM

  • silentpotato review that father john misty album plz it is amazing
    May 15 08:56 AM
  • jefflebowski I'm familiar with Vijay Iyer, but i've never really gotten into his music. Any tips on where to start?ps. sorry for the late reply, my shoutbox spotaeneously combusts occasionally
    April 5 03:20 PM
  • jefflebowski as in the jazz musician and all round polymath dude?
    March 29 12:32 PM
  • thatoneguy726 Yesss! Please do. I want to hear it.
    March 9 05:10 PM
  • thatoneguy726 Thanks! Yeah we're torn on whether to redo that one for the album or not, but we figured we might as well because we think everything we do at this different studio will have an overall better sound. There's no way your song is bad! I vote that you just film yourself singing it with a cheap video camera like one of those YouTube kids and then put it on!!
    March 8 10:16 PM
  • thatoneguy726 Ha we actually did that awhile ago, but they just weren't good recordings so we stopped charging people even though they were just $2 for four songs. We got rid of one of the songs and now the whole thing's free. We're redoing all of them for the full album. How do you know about The Hair Song? Did I tell you about it? I can't even remember haha. Are there any recordings of you playing your finished song on Youtube or anything?
    March 8 08:27 PM
  • thatoneguy726 It's going pretty well gig-wise! This one booking agency thing really likes us and has been helping us get some shows opening for bands when they come through on tour. They're bands that aren't necessarily well known in our area, but they're big enough to tour so that's been pretty cool. We're hitting kind of a wall with recording though. It's so freakin' expensive. Trying to find ways to raise money. Do you play music at all?
    March 8 08:08 PM
  • FelixCulpa Glad you enjoyed it! Just reccently got into Fleet Foxes Helplessness Blues and saw you comments all over that review and I was reminded that I rec'ed you Frontier Ruckus and I thought of folk and then I thought of Blessed Feathers.
    December 20 07:28 PM
  • FelixCulpa I think I got some folk here you might enjoy;
    December 19 09:14 PM
  • thatoneguy726 Avi Buffalo: so awesome! Thanks so much. I'm loving the song a ton. For sure checking out more
    December 17 07:26 AM
  • Knott- I'd be all like "OMG ARE YOU IN THE BAND?"Ha.
    December 9 04:27 AM
  • Steoandnoodles Yeah, I think you're right there bud. Ever one seems to be 17 - 25 ish. =) Pretty common demographic. exciting too because there is still loads of music discovery. Like, I'm a huge fan of Frank Sinatra and I bet somewhere down the line; I'll get in to even more 50's music. It's all a growth process. Music matures with age... I think, dunno. =P
    December 8 11:37 PM
  • thatoneguy726 18, turning 19 in july. pretty sure we're average sputnik ages
    December 8 11:29 PM
  • thatoneguy726 haha thanks! same to you. yeah there are definitely a few cool people on sputnik, but they're just that: few. how old are you anyway?
    December 8 11:11 PM
  • thatoneguy726 yeah people are so brutal and annoying on here, i love it when people are actually decent and nice haha. and yeah, i'm totally the same way. my religion is latter-day saint, or as most of the world knows us: mormon
    December 8 10:56 PM
  • thatoneguy726 haha just because i've noticed that you're like way less vulgar than everyone else on sputnik, so i thought it was maybe religion related. was just curious, since i don't swear as part of my religion
    December 8 10:26 PM
  • thatoneguy726 ok i'll totally check it out! btw i have a weird and random question: are you religious at all?
    December 8 10:09 PM
  • thatoneguy726 thanks! we're recently getting a bit of local attention. like three different places have called us without us saying anything first and asked us for gigs in the past week, one of them being the same venue fun. is playing at! so hopefully it'll go somewhere eventually
    December 7 11:12 PM
  • thatoneguy726 and here's one of the better live ones
    December 7 10:23 PM
  • thatoneguy726 we haven't had the best luck with video recordings. either the sound quality or the performance itself tend to have problems haha. but here's a studio recording:
    December 7 10:21 PM
  • Chrisjon89 Dunno if you tracked down the version of Fables of Faubus but here it is if you didn't - - pretty full on for that era lol
    July 3 05:54 AM
  • patrickfannon So glad you love the new Bon Iver! I commend you on your willpower, sir. Enjoy the record, man. Take care.
    June 21 06:45 PM
  • DonniSharK I guess I didn't, no.. Haven't been much for writing reviews lately. I never get any feedback on any of them so I'm kinda burned out on it.
    May 31 06:19 PM
  • FelixCulpa Then why'd you want the link then? And I'll probably pick this up on CD too when it released. I really hope you makes a stop in Sweden, would be great to see him live. I think I read that he's coming to Ireland, lucky bastard!
    May 18 06:00 PM
  • FelixCulpa Ahh should have guessed from the O'Toole ;) Well I'm an hour ahead of you here in Sweden. And the Bon Iver is good 3 songs deep.
    May 18 05:48 PM
  • FelixCulpa Hey, are you from the uk? I thought for some reason you were from New Zealand but it's like 5 in the morning there and I wouldn't guess you up so early/late(? ;)).
    May 18 05:16 PM
  • DiceMan It'll undoubtedly be on youtube if you're really that eager to listen to it.
    May 18 05:10 PM
  • FelixCulpa There you go, just saw your other shouts and I searched for a link myself and though I'd share.
    May 18 05:07 PM
  • FelixCulpa True. Hey want a link to a Good Winter's new S/T ;)?
    May 18 05:01 PM
  • DiceMan It got leaked yesterday and I got to it and sent it to like 7 people before they took down the leaks
    May 18 04:41 PM
  • FelixCulpa Hehe, yeah I think it's better too. Orion might be a 4 for me, need to listen to it more though, been a bit swamped in music lately.
    May 18 04:15 PM
  • Observer For some reason, half my message was erased, but it was King Creosote and Jon Hopkins' Diamond Mind.
    May 16 10:48 PM
  • Observer Hey, man. I came across this album the other day, and it's shaped up to really be one of my favorites of the year: King Creosote
    May 16 10:24 PM
  • FelixCulpa Ohh wow you 5'd it! Getting it ASAP ;)
    May 2 08:53 PM
  • FelixCulpa Ahh I need to get that album!
    May 2 08:53 PM
  • FelixCulpa Odd. Anyway I said also, before the "and" cut me off! Is that I need to get The Orion songbook, forgot about that album. Glad you enjoy them, haven't got that many folk albums but Frontier, The TMOE, Sam amidon and Bon Iver are 4 or 4 for me.
    April 30 03:08 PM
  • FelixCulpa Huh, it's meant to say "Frontier Ruckus - Deadmalls
    April 30 10:56 AM
  • FelixCulpa Hey have you listened to "Frontier Ruckus - Deadmalls
    April 29 11:32 PM

  • DaveyBoy Ask and ye shall receive.
    March 30 12:57 PM

    March 14 03:32 AM
