Since this community has been abandoned by one of its maintainers, I s'pose it's all mine now. I'd like to get it up and running again.

so... what's everyone listening to at the moment?

I love Elliott Smith's album "Unreleased: From a Basement on the Hill II" which leaked a few days ago.
Anyone else get it?
I like it more than "From a Basement on the Hill" because it has Elliott's vibe. I know his friends and family tried hard to put "From a basement on the hill" together but the music on "II" that were left alone are the best.

It's also nearing the date of his death. Any plans?

Hi everyone!! I just joined & I promise I'm not a twat.

I just ordered this album after some extensive internet trolling & an unbelievably good price:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com Emitt Rhodes Self-titled

In 1970, and with little fanfare, ABC/Dunhill Records released a self-titled album by a young man named Emitt Rhodes. With more than a slight nod to the Beatles (particularly Paul McCartney), its twelve tracks are among the finest examples of pop-song form in history. More amazingly, the entire album ó every song ó was written, sung, performed, engineered and produced by Emitt himself, a feat he accomplished nearly simultaneously with McCartney. The album and Emitt had what seemed to be a promising future ahead, breaking into the Top 40 (peaking at a respectable #29) and spawning a single that nearly cracked the Top 40 as well. But, through a number of marketing and contractual flubs, Emitt Rhodes ó the man and the album ó faded into the shadows of rock-and-roll obscurity, along with his subsequent releases.

Billboard magazine called him "one of the finest artists on the music scene today" (4/3/71) and later referred to his debut as one of the "best albums of the decade" (11/23/96.) Alternative Press described it as "essential listening...a true pop gem..." (2/96) It's a shame that to your average person-on-the-street today, the name Emitt Rhodes doesn't mean much. But to many who bought that first album, it occupies a special place in their record collection; a pure pop masterpiece that endures countless listens.

Okay..so for some STRANGE reason we keep having these trolls signing up for this community, so now there is no longer open membership. If I find that you're for real and want to discuss music, you'll gladly be accepted. Otherwise, take your idiocy elsewhere, and get a life instead of bothering people on the Internet.

Why is pitchfork so hegemonic? I don't get it. It really bothers me (obviously).
I want to boycott them, who's with me?

Where should I go instead for my music news?

this morning was listening to the rolling stones, and realised that they were really, really good (until a certain point, you know. i cant stand to listen to anything after 1980).

and i want to know, what is your favourite rolling stones song(s)?

i would say mine are 'ruby tuesday' and 'time is on my side.'

i really dont understand why the arcade fire are
so popular. totally overhyped, the songs are lacking
and the singer's voice is annoying.


so, in response to modlass's post, i want to
add that arcade fire suck as well.

I can't help but like them though..
from pitchfork:

"Most of Tree City sounds lifted from Britt Daniel's songbook. By that, I don't mean it sounds somewhat like it. I mean, it sounds like they stole the tapes from Britt's house and scribbled their name over his. Does Daniel live on High Street? That would make sense. Otherwise, it's hard to believe that a band, even relative newcomers, would be so blatant about borrowing ideas. Aren't New Yorkers cagier than that? But they present a pretty striking facsimile, albeit with the expected loss of definition and detail.

Singer Ben Trokan Single White Female's it throughout, knocking the dust off Daniel's weary loverboy rasp and cribbing notes from scratched-out lyric sheets. Trokan and his mates do such a fine rendition that, at first, it's easy to pretend it is a new Spoon record. Their Stella-soaked piano pop bounces and shakes where it should, with a few idiosyncratic touches that keep things interesting on certain numbers, like the horn section on "Spanish Teeth" or dancy-slappyhands on "Amanda Green". "Beneath the Trees" even threatens to carve out a unique path with its breathy ooh's and la's and Trokan's thrusts into falsetto. It's the clearest indication that ROHS have a chance if they're willing to trust their songwriting and ability a bit more the next time out."

That's what I'm sayin'.
I wish I didn't like them, but it IS easy to pretend that their album is the next spoon album.
