  1. Axl Rose made a surprise guest appearance on Looney Tunes to debut a new AC/DC track, "Rock the Rock" This debut is Axl's first new music in over 10 years! Discussion Thread: Axl Rose guest appearance/new song debut on Looney Tunes
  2. Not sure how much this will be to anybody's taste here but it's an album I love called Heaven Up Here from Echo and the Bunnymen released in 1981. Kind of a stripped down post punk vibe and a really cool record IMO though I guess that's up to people to decide for themselves. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heaven_Up_Here

  4. GNFNR Album of the Week #4: Jeremy Enigk - Return of the Frog Queen I think the idea of the “album” is an outdated concept. Almost every album ever has a few great tracks, a few that are ok, and some that are obvious filler. In this day and age of downloads and customizable playlists, there’s no reason for the traditional album to not go extinct. So finding one you dig all the way through is a rarity. One of my favorite albums of all time is “Return of the Frog Queen” by Jeremy Enigk. He’s the lead singer of Sunny Day Real Estate and when that band imploded in the mid 90s he released his first solo effort (backed by a 21 piece orchestra) in 1996 to very little fanfare. At the time I’d never heard of the guy. I only heard the album cause a girlfriend in college loved it. I hated this guy on first listen. I disliked his crazy, nasally, high-pitched yet gravelly voice. I thought he was trying to be like Perry Ferrell but failing. But one night in her apartment while she slept, I was playing Dr. Mario on an old NES and had the album on repeat and by the 3rd or 4th song I realized I was really into it and I just kept it going and going and going. Suddenly, I was in love. I can’t get enough of the crescendos and rises and falls and the fragility/strength of his vocals. The first track “Abegail Anne” (best song on the album) builds to its soaring climax so brilliantly. I also love the cathartic WAIL at the end of all the build-up on “Shade and the Black Hat”. This record is the first one that popped in my head when this album of the week thing was suggested cause it’s probably right up there with Tool’s “Aenima” as an album I never ever get tired of listening to straight through, even after thousands of listens. On a drive cross-country I listened to it on repeat so many times I lost count. The ONE track I don’t care for as much as the others is “Carnival’ cause the tone and distorted vocals don’t really fit…other than that one track I think the rest is a masterpiece. Hey, your mileage may vary, but at least give it a listen straight through. It’s only a half hour long so it’s not like a huge commitment…it’s been described as “Beatles-esque” and he is considered the godfather of “emo.” I don’t know about all that, but I just fucking love it. It’s beautiful, sad, haunting, uplifting all at the same time. I hope you dig it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Return_of_the_Frog_Queen 1. Abegail Anne 2. Return of the Frog Queen 3. Lewis Hollow 4. Lizard 5. Carnival 6. Call Me Steam 7. Explain 8. Shade and the Black Hat 9. Fallen Heart
  5. This is a fun Rock album. It's not going to change your life, but I think you will enjoy repeated listens. It's fun, catchy with great pop hooks and well-recorded and mixed electric guitar. If Pink Floyd recorded a new album with Syd Barrett in 2015, it might sound something like this. The full album is on Spotify: http://open.spotify.com/album/0nSzBICzQHea8grwfqa5Gb Track listing A few Official videos:
  6. This is copied from a post I made a while ago on mygnr, but it fits with this just fine: You probably know I'm Shipping Up To Boston and possibly a few other Dropkick songs here and there, and maybe even are familiar with The Warrior's Code or The Meanest of Times, but The Gang's All Here shows Dropkick at what I believe was their best as they began their transition from pretty much a pure punk band to more of a Celtic-rock-with-punk-mixed-in band in 1999. Their second overall album and first release with current lead singer Al Barr, the album begins with the great one-two punch of Blood and Whiskey and Pipebomb on Lansdowne and hardly lets up until the title track closes things out around 45 minutes later. If you've been looking to give Dropkick more of a shot beyond the hits, this is a great place to start. Chosen mainly for the fact that I'm seeing them tonight and tomorrow in Boston as a part of their St. Paddy's day run, which are always fantastic shows. Apparently the full thing isn't on YouTube. Should be on Spotify but keep an eye on the unmoderated thread later for other ways to listen.
  7. 2015 album by Israeli composer Shye Ben Tzur, Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, and the Indian ensemble the Rajasthan Express. Produced by Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.

This is a Highly Recommended classic. *****
  9. Five star album. No bad songs. Crowd-pleaser. Earworm. Love it. Live it. Share it. Wear it. Executive-produced by Kanye West. Featuring Rick Ross, and a Sara Bareillis sample/hook. Warning: This album is a panty-dropper.
  10. Pretty sad that some of you haters ever doubted him (magisme) Does anything else think "Positive Attitude" may be the title of the next disc? It sounds like it may have been some sort of collaboration with the current team at mygner.

  12. Beirut's new album No No No, is a tasty little morsel of European-inspired indie-pop music. Nine 3-minute songs that are breezy, light and feature trumpets, ukelele, keyboards and accordian. The lead singer has a ghostly, David Byrne-style delivery, and the songs are both complex and very simple at the same time. The lyrics are sad and intospective, while the accompanying music is light and pleasant. It's a short album, so give it a spin (on Spotify?) if you have a chance.
  13. GNFNR Album of the Week #17: Darkside - Psychic I decided to listen to this album for the first time in a while and figured I'd bring back album of the week if you want to listen to it too. It's on Spotify. Torrents seem easy to find. Tracklisting: 1. Golden Arrow 2. Sitra 3. Heart 4. Paper Trails 5. The Only Shrine I've Seen 6. Freak, Go Home 7. Greek Light 8. Metatron #nowplaying
  14. An album I used to use as my go to for a good 3am comedown after a heavy session. Dark room with a few beers and some decent headphones required. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mezzanine_(album) http://youtube.com/watch?v=/24CgqhCQ8q8
  15. If I were to describe the record in one word it would be "originality". I would prefer not to talk too much about the album because I believe it will speak to you accurately enough while listening to it. The album, as a whole is an extremely unique symbolic work. It's one of the deepest, most atmospheric stuff I've ever listened to - lyrically as well as musically. You might have to be in the right mood for it though but if you are, and of course, if you're into this kind of music, it will hit you, without doubt. Tracklisting: 1. Prologue 2. Kettering 3. Sylvia 4. Atrophy 5. Bear 6. Thirteen 7. Two 8. Shiva 9. Wake 10. Epilogue + All of the songs are given alternate titles, they read as follows: 1. Prologue, or, Hospice 2. Kettering, or, Bedside Manner 3. Sylvia, or, Sliding Curtains Shining Children's Heads 4. Atrophy, or, Rings Ill-Fitting 5. Bear, or, Children Become Their Parents Become Their Children 6. Thirteen, or, Sylvia Speaks 7. Two, or, I Would Have Saved Her If I Could 8. Shiva, or, Portacaths Switched 9. Wake, or, Letting People In 10. Epilogue, or, Sylvia Alive In Nightmares
  16. This week's album comes in the form of Irish singer-songerwriter Mick Flannery's second effort, White Lies. Being just 24 when released, it highlights his place as one of the most promising folk acts around. The album is not perfect, and while may come across too somber for some, it balances Damien Rice-esque folk songs like the opener Safety Rope and Goodbye, with more upbeat and rock-based tracks such as Tomorrow's Paper, Wish You Well and What Do You See. These are the five songs I'd highlight for you to check out if you don't have the time for the whole album. Mick's released two more albums since this, and are well worth checking out if you enjoy what you hear. I've attached a link below that features the entire album on a YouTube playlist. Complete Album (YouTube Playlist) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3t9hqY5kSI&list=PL4BC5A6C14DC1EE09 Tracklisting: 1. Safety Rope 2. California 3. Tomorrow's Paper 4. Wish You Well 5. Goodbye 6. Near Or Far 7. Wait Here 8. What Do You See 9. Smiling Girl 10. Arise Now 11. Do Me Right
  17. Alright alright.. Here it comes: The Parlor Mob - And You Were A Crow The New Jersey bands debut record I listen to this album, all the time still. to me it is a fantastic mix of old and new, its a modern underrated and underappreciated classic in my opinion. I feel that this band has some of the same quality that Axl and GNR had, when people heard his voice, the lyrics and the way they played. There are some fantastic tracks on it: http://youtube.com/watch?v=/kXmYDl8GB5Y?list=PLJXT8eK41nEEFzgtJ36UfoMj0lrE0987I They have made 3 albums: And You Were A Crow, Dogs and Cry Wolf There are some class songs on all of them !!
  18. Alright, ladies and gentlemen, here it is " Blood Pressures " by The Kills. It`s my favourite album by them. The Kills at their best and rawest. http://tune.pk/video/3426013/the-kills-blood-pressures-full-album
  19. so this weeks album is brought to you by dan swano and his band nightingale. to those who dont know dan swano is a legend in heavy metal music who pioneered death metal and more directly progressive death metal with his band edge of sanity and his lone solo album moontower and was a major influence on bands like opeth and katatonia. dan swano is also known for being a very talented multi instrumentalist who started a drummer but then self taught himself to play guitar. he is a lefty who doesnt invert the strings when he plays. he also plays keyboard, piano, bass, cello, saxaphone. also dan is the anti axl rose he is in a million projects, releases a lot of music and when not making and releasing music, he is a well known music producer and also mixes albums and he worked in a record store part time until a year or so ago. so now we bring you to his band nightingale which is a more rock style(no harsh vocals at all) this is the bands first output in 7 years and to me it could be there best album. tracklist 1. on stolen wings 2. lucifers lament 3. chasing the storm away 4. warriors of the dawn 5. forevermore 6. divided i fall 7. the voyage of endurance 8. 27 9. the maze 10. echoes of a dream http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hd_ohSnxOps http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sn-DTtNcePo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsaGDwLF0ao
  20. I had a Prince album and an album by The Lone Bellow in the chamber, but chose to go with this as my pick: (Sorry, that's the best full album link I could find) This is probably my favorite album of all time and I believe it's better than anything he did with Pink Floyd. Yes, that includes The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon. As with anything Waters related, it's very heavy handed in that it's a concept album. It's a LOT to take at first lyrically, but I think most people can just dig in to the music and be happy. I'm eager for others to share their thoughts after hearing it again or for the very first time.
  21. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zP0b3a2JkgI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zP0b3a2JkgIThis album f'n rocks. It's awesome. It's from 2012 and it's already a classic. Lonerism is the second album by Australian psychedelic rock band Tame Impala, released in 2012. I think you will all like it. If you do, check out some of the band's other records, they are all good/god.
  22. From Arcade Fire member Will Butler (little brother to lead singer Win Butler) comes this excellent and eclectic little album. It's short and it's a lot of fun. I hope you guys like it. Don't be turned off if you don't like Arcade Fire - although why wouldn't you like Arcade Fire? - because it sounds nothing like them. There's maybe one song that sounds kind of Arcade Fire-ish. It's mostly a take on a bunch of different styles Will is into, so it's derivative for sure, but he puts enough of his own spin on it to make it really interesting. Enjoy. I might have to post one song at a time. 1. "Take My Side" 2. "Anna" 3. "Finish What I Started" 4. "Son of God" 5. "Something's Coming" 6. "What I Want" 7. "Sing to Me" 8. "Witness"
  23. Hey guys (: My suggestion is something different: it's not rock, and it's mostly not in english (some songs are). But please, please, give it a try. I doubt you'll regret it. It's a 1974 concept brazilian soul/funk album from one of the greatest and craziest artists to ever walk on Earth: Tim Maia. It's called Racional, and it's by far his best work. If you're tired of the same old stuff, maybe this will be good for you. Maia was elected by Rolling Stone the best brazilian singer of all times, and he is definetly one of my favourite artists. Maia was an absolute junkie and control freak who got to the point of pointing a gun to his bandmate's heads. He would record and then destroy albums with James Brown's band just to piss of the record company. On a random day he got to know the Rational Culture, some freak Scientologyish cult in Brazil that said, basically, that we were about to enter the Rational phase of our universe, and that the aliens would come from the sky to save us. But they would only save the ones that did give any attention to carnal pleasures, such as drugs, money and fame. The cult became his life. And this was in the peek of his fame. From out of nowhere he stopped doing drugs and abstained himself from his luxury life. He started doing concerts only to promote the cult book, Universe In Desenchantement. Then he recorded the double album: Racional. As he wasn't doing any drugs and was, for the first time in his life, healthy, his amazing voice was in top form. And the instrumental is incredible too. It's his best work, and the record company even acknowledged it as his masterpiece, but they refused to promote as it talked only about this nonsense cult. A few copies were released, though, and it's now one of the most rare vynils in the world. It's his only album that's not on Spotify. A few years later he got into a fight with the cult leader and left it, going back to his old self, regaining the well deserved success. If I'm not mistaken his first song after the rational phase was called "Sossego (E Um Quilo do Bom)" [in english, "Chill (And A Pound Of The Good One)"], which Robin Finck played onstage on Axl's concert at Rock in Rio III. Maia didn't talk about Racional, hated the album, didn't play it's song live and would tell anyone that asked that the cult was pure bullshit. Maia had a heart attack on stage during a concert the late 90s and died a few days later. It was very sad, he was a beloved artist in Brazil. Anyway, it's one of my favourite albums of all time, and in case anyone's interested, a great stoner album. Hope you guys like it as much as I do. Cheers!
