This old record store nearby is closing and all the used cd's are being sold for next to nothing so I cleaned up:

Bonnie Prince Billy- Ease Down the Road- I've never heard anything other than ISAD so I assumed this was good
Sunset Rubdown- Shut Up I Am Dreaming- I like Krug enough
Bowerbirds- Hymn For a Dark Horse- John says this is good

I love these so much. How're they working out for you? Ease Down the Road is a great listen, though if I recall, there's at least one track I can't listen to. On reflection, it may not be quite as good as I See A Darkness, but I've a special place for it since it was my first Will Oldham material I'd been exposed to, and it made me want to listen to his extensive back catalogue. I don't know if you mean you haven't heard just the BPB stuff, but I'd recommend Palace if you haven't heard them, especially Viva Last Blues. I guess it's less polished than EDTR and ISAD.

OT: I got the new Beirut album and am loving it, and I thought I'd be disappointed by it.

A Broken Consort "Box of Birch" (cd - 2nd ed.)
A Broken Consort (a.k.a. Richard Skelton) delivers a beautiful multi-layered work of accordion drones, strings, etc that makes your living room come alive. I cannot recommend this release enough if you’re into ambient/drones/etc.

I've had this for about a week now and I concur. (I'll try to give a more in-depth report when I finally get around to replying to your message, sorry...)

Thanks for pointing this out you two. It is, in fact, so good that I have even dared to come back onto page 15 of the 'new albums' thread, something I thought I would never do after Pook's post, er, down below.

But, yes, this Box Of Birch thingamajig. It kind of reminds me of Clogs' Lantern album in places, with all the scrapy strings and stuff. And also of the Miasmah label people like Svarte Greiner and Deaf Center, Elegi, Gultskra Artikler etc.

The real gem is the second track, Weight Of Days, in my opinion. Do you have another 'pinion?

yeah, it almost goes without saying, but deliverance and damnation would've been much better as a well-edited single album than they are as two separate albums.

deliverance and damnation would have been much better as just damnation, since deliverance sucked. damnation is pretty great though, if a little samey by the end.

Heh, that's quite some praise there!

I'm glad, but not in the least bit surprised, that you're liking it. I'm afraid I haven't heard any of the people you're bringing up as reference points, though.

Although it's the least like A Broken Consort of all of them, if you haven't heard Deaf Center's Pale Ravine album from a couple of years ago, I think you'd like it a lot. One of the members has subsequently set up the Miasmah label, and his first solo album, (Knive by Svarte Greiner) is a kind of template for the rest of its releases, sometimes described as 'acoustic doom'.

You can hear some of the Deaf Center here : http://www.typerecords.com/releases/full.php?id=14

and Miasmah is over here : http://www.miasmah.com/music/

EDIT : to say, I've just been reminded that Rafael Anton Irisarri's Daydreaming was also on Miasmah

I've heard one song from that Deaf Center album on your piano mix, and I enjoyed that one a lot, so I suppose I should indeed check out the rest of the album.

As for Miasmah, I do of course know the excellent Rafael Anton Irisarri album, but nothing else on that label.

edit: x-post with your edit!

since I'm (hopefully) seeing casiotone for the painfully alone next week.

Cass McCombs Dropping The Writ

I got this in the mail yesterday, which is really weird, because I had cancelled my Amazon order as I'm nearly broke. And now I don't have it in me to return it, because it was dirt cheap anyway, and because it's Cass McCombs, and it looks like another fascinating, if not quite perfect, record.

Paul Metzger - Deliverance.

Got the Locust newsletter last Wednesday at lunchtime.  This was ordered within 5 minutes, and was on my desk in work this morning (after a 3 day weekend) ready for collection.  Score!

PM's Three improvisations on modified banjo has long entertained me, and now there's another instalment.  I'm greatly looking forward to hearing this ASAP.  Now I just need to get a working CD player again- currently without.  Sad

EDIT: And I ordered Erik Friedlander's Block ice and propane this morning too, after hearing some of it over the weekend at The Brother's house- astonishing stuff.

I used to think Deliverance sucked, now it's one of only two albums I still listen to from Opeth.  Orchid being the other.

Deliverance is the only Opeth album I've ever listened to (cause, you know, edit0r's chocie) and I think it's ace. Just never really had the itch for more.

Which, reminds me, I still need to buy

I just got the new(ish) Thurston Moore solo record as a (late) birthday present and I think it may very well be one of my favorite records of the year. Maybe he does revisit that one melody he does so well (you know, the Diamond Sea one) once too often, but the arrangements and the songwriting (that, at times, reminds me of that Doug Martsch solo record from years ago) are all top notch, the understated playing of all involved (even J Mascis) is amazingly fun to listen to and, apart from all that, I could listen to Thurston Moore's voice all day long, anyway.

(Anyone reading this might want to take note of the fact that I also liked New York City Ghosts And Flowers so I might not be the most reliable source for most of you...)

Great, when I posted that I was kind of hoping that you would pick up on it. I'm glad to hear that you like it too! So far I guess the fourth track is my favourite. I love the melancholic feel that's present on the entire album. Which indeed makes it fit nicely together with the Miasmah releases. Although the sound of Box of Birch is more full and less serene than your typical Miasmah album.

Today I got Sleeping Debris by Meursault in the mail which is also very much recommended and quite similar. Unfortunately I've just learned that the album has just sold out (limited to 100 on Students of Decay) but there's a small preview here:

Another Bob here who ordered the new Paul Metzger album! (on vinyl though) I absolutely loved his Three improvisations on modified banjo album, which became very personal too about 18 months ago for unfortunate reasons. I can't wait to hear this new material, the preview on the Locust website already sounds spectacular. I've read that there will also be a new vinyl-only album out on the excellent Roaratorio very soon.

Other purchases of the last two weeks or so:







Oren Ambarchi "In the Pendulum's Embrace" (cd)
Molasses "Trouble at Jinx Hotel" (cd)
Begushkin "Nightly Things" (cd)
Phosphorescent "Pride" (lp)
Mv & Ee With the Golden Road "Gettin' Gone" (cd)
Supersilent "8" (cd)
The Necks "Townsville" (cd)
The Necks "Chemist" (cd)
Nadja "Touched" (cd)
Nadja "Radiance of Shadows" (cd)
Meursault "Sleeping Debris" (cd)

Of particular interest are both Nadja albums which are just monstrous. Very much recommended for those into doom-ambient/drone-metal. You can stream both on the Alien8 website here and here. The Alien8 website speaks of a combination of dirge-like metal riffs and shoegazer aesthetics. Buy two Alien8 albums and get a third one for free, I chose the Molasses album as my third.

Not listed above (because there's no artwork yet on the internet) but also very much recommended is the new Agitated Radio Pilot called World Winding Down, for those into singer/songwriters, folk or just melancholic music in general. Their previous album Your Turn To Go It Alone was one of my favourites last year. I haven't managed to listen to this new one in its entirety but what I did hear so far was just fantastic. There are two new tracks up on the MySpace page.

LEVON HELM dirt farmer  /  VARIOUS ARTISTS i'm not there (soundtrack - 2cd)


listening to the former for the 2nd time in a row. man, it's good! it's basically the album i wanted john fogerty to release this year. raucous, meaty folk music...superb rhythm section. levon helm's drumming and his vocals easily recall his days in the band, and if the talents have aged at all, they've aged like wine. i can't recommend this album highly enough to the folkies on this board.

The Necks "Townsville" (cd)
The Necks "Chemist" (cd)

Not listed above (because there's no artwork yet on the internet) but also very much recommended is the new Agitated Radio Pilot called World Winding Down, for those into singer/songwriters, folk or just melancholic music in general. Their previous album Your Turn To Go It Alone was one of my favourites last year. I haven't managed to listen to this new one in its entirety but what I did hear so far was just fantastic. There are two new tracks up on the MySpace page.

Chemist is great- 'Abillera' is a regular cycling tune for me, and will probably remain so until I crack the maddeningly / wonderfully irregular code of the drums!  Haven't got/heard Townsville yet, but The Brother assures me it's the biz.

Re Agitated Radio Pilot-
The main man in ARP, Dave, is an acquaintance of mine, and a good friend of a friend who has been in other bands with him- Murmansk being the one I saw more than others, though they might be dormant at the moment.  It's funny to see ARP getting mentions / reviews in a few places after all these years- Aquarius Records reviewed something, and I think I saw a mention on the Grown So Ugly blog.

Amusingly (perhaps), the first place I met Dave was in the dingy toilet of a pub in Dublin, right after the first ever Irish date by The Mountain Goats which I'd arranged with my brother and his friend (November 1996).  As I was peeing, he came up to me and said "Thanks for booking the show!  I never thought I'd see The Mountain Goats in Ireland!"  Yes, we were a rare breed in the Ireland of the mid-1990s.

And the final piece of the puzzle is that, when tMG returned to Ireland in 2002, ARP played support for their date in Sligo, pictures of which can still be found here.  If you look closely (well, not that closely) you can see pictures of me too, back in my beard-free days.

(Readers of some duration will remember these pictures from a while back- I know TSKS posted the crowd shot from Sligo here before.)
