Deerhunter - Monomania - Full album 

The newest release from deerhunter. More straightforward, kind of Lennon-y in places. great album. 

listen to it. listen to it. 

Full Album from marietta native Bradford Cox’s band Deerhunter. 

Take some time with this one. 

It’s a beautiful Day - Wasted union blues 

Hendrix style fuzz guitar, plus a violin? Sure, why the hell not. 

These guys were regulars at the filmore, and a corner stone of the San Francisco sound. 

If you like that kind of thing, you owe it to yourself to check this out. So good. 

It’s a Beautiful Day - White Bird 

Speaking of channeling Janis, 

here is Grootna, singing “That’s what you get” 

It sounds like Janis singing with the grateful dead. 

If that doesn’t sound appealing to you, maybe we shouldn’t be friends. ;-) 

The Blues Magoos cover Elvis’ Heartbreak Hotel

Not as much psychedelic freakout as “Never goin’ back to Georgia”, this is still wilder and heavier than anything Elvis would have released.

The simple piano introduction belies the raw, wild, crazy power that opens up later in the song. 

The lead singer wails in a way that very few male artists have ever managed, almost as if he is channeling Ms. Joplin. 

Then there is a marimba? 

I don’t know. It’s crazy, but it’s a great cover. It’s a great track.

I dug out my good headphones, and I’ve been listening to this track on endless repeat. Damn. 

Okay, so I’m posting a lot of articles from Analog Revolution. That’s cause I *am* analog revolution. 

I’m pressing this record, and I’m So Damn Excited about it. 

I want all of my friends, all of the people I know, to listen to this music. 

Listen to it, and tell me what you think. Let me know what you love, and what you hate.

I’m going to be pressing these in my living room. I’ll post pictures. It’s awesome. 

This bed is on fire 

With passionate love 

The neighbours complain about the noises above 

But she only comes when she’s on top 

My therapist said not to see you no more 

She said you’re like a disease without any cure 

She said I’m so obsessed that I’m becoming a bore, oh no 

Ah, you think you’re so pretty 

Caught your hand inside the till 

Slammed your fingers in the door 

Fought with kitchen knives and skewers 

Dressed me up in womens clothes 

Messed around with gender roles 

Dye my eyes and call me pretty 

Moved out of the house, so you moved next door 

I locked you out, you cut a hole in the wall 

I found you sleeping next to me, I thought I was alone 

You’re driving me crazy, when are you coming home

John Seabrook writes about how to top the charts in the Internet era: http://nyr.kr/16xR35F

“As popular music continues to transition from an album-based industry to a singles-based one, a new taxonomy of pop songs may develop. Some songs will be made explicitly for radio, while others will be tailored for streaming, and still others intended for downloading.”

What the fuck? 

Popular music isn’t transitioning from an album-based industry to a singles-based industry. 

Pop was *born* as a singles based industry. It’s always been about the 45, the 7”. 

Many artists over the years have bucked that trend, but just as many have embraced it. 

Music, as an industry, is in the midst of an upheaval not because we are transitioning to a singles-based market (we know how to do that, we’ve done that before), but because the entire ecosystem and infrastructure that the major labels built up around their hit albums and hit singles is dying. 

Music is a live and well. 

The music industry is falling apart because they are clinging to old ideas and are afraid to embrace new ones. 


The solutions are out there, you just have to be willing to explore them. To take risks, to admit defeat.
