13. Feb. 2010, 2:23 von ZeppledelinPerhaps not intentional, but Jimbobbins' late comment on my age-old list of debut albums made me realize how long it has been since my last journal post. Thanks for the much-needed inspiration. So, here’s another go at it, not only because I felt the old list needed an update, but also since I still have an affinity toward the unadulterated sincerity of debut albums. Let’s do a top 30 this time, shall we?
30. Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
The old school has a tendency to grow tedious; their innovations not so apparent anymore, but at least some of them retain their awesomeness. In this case it is possibly a matter of never being revolutionary, rather rock solid, wrapping together the best parts of their gangsta roots and adding a pleasant, if not entirely dead serious Eastern mysticism to the mix. And they did have humor, an incredible flow, personality and coolness, and the Wu-Tang definitely weren’t nothing to fuck with.

The Part Where It Goes Silent and Then Comes Back (1:58).
If you made it this far into the song you’re either thinking this is the greatest song ever or you’re dying (literally) for it to be over…or you’re indifferent to it..or you think it’s just sort of OK, I mean how the fuck do I know what you think about it, I’m not a scientist. Merzbow once said that Noise "is the pornography of music", if that’s true then this part is when the dude pulls out, flips the chick over and then the TV goes back to being blurry and scrambled and you’re like “holy shit, I almost got to see some anal”. This part is sweet because if you don’t like it you’ll let out an exhale of relief before you get smacked in the cunt with more noise. I used to listen to Wolf Eyes very loudly as I rode the subway and pushed my way through large crowds around the city, I’m not sure what that says about me but I'm sure its something.

"15" Grandes Canções
7. Jan. 2009, 22:35 von TemujinI hardly listened to the radio or anything at all this year, so most of my song of the year candidates are simply songs from albums I bought.
Kelley Polar - Entropy Reigns (in the Celestial City)
Both a very typical (the music in general) and atypical (female vocals, talk about drugs and other debauchery) KP song. Very poppy as well. Best song on his latest album. According to my stats, it's also the song I listened to the most in 2008. Deservedly so.
Goldfrapp - A&E
One of the best songs on the Seventh Tree album, with a very nice video as well. What more do you want to know?
Lykke Li - Dance Dance Dance
This and Little Bit got me into Lykke Li, but after listening to the album a couple of times, I kept going back to DDD and started skipping Little Bit. And I just have to post some lyrics: "easy conversations, no such thing, no I'm shy shy shy. My hips they lie cause reality is, I'm shy shy shy". Love.

Santogold - Shove It

I would of said Elliott Smith or Sonic Youth, but Air are definitely one of them
What got you into number one?
My friend randomly gave me Moon Safari and I was blown away in a gentle breeze. La femme d'argent was one of the best things to grace my ears on first listen.

They're literally easy to listen to. I can just stick them on any time and relax and enjoy.
Favorite songs of number one.

8. Okt. 2008, 2:16 von techno-shitJust before I get started, this is not what albums were released this year (although most of them have) it's just what albums I basically had on repeat this year.
1; Jack Johnson - In Between Dreams.
Now, this album is quite a few years old, released in 2005 if I'm not mistaken. And although many people say that Jack Johnson's music is okay to like but not love, they are so very much mistaken. I tried to give On and On a listen, Jack's first 'big album', wasn't much impressed, but I'll be sure to give it a proper listen sometime. Haven't listened to his latest, but from what I hear it's too 'elevator music'-esque. But In Between Dreams is another world all together. The songs, while some may sound a tad similar, are so amazingly beautiful I can't help but listen to it on repeat for 5 or so hours. The many references to his wife in songs such as Belle, Better Together, Banana Pancakes, and Do You Remember, show how much he loves her…
