Gatecreeper surprise-dropped a new album today. 8 songs. Seven of which are about one minute long each. The last is 11 minutes long.

 

 

I really want this on vinyl but Ive spent so damn much on vinyl this past weeks.

Love The Cramps and Type O. The guitar tone on October Rust alone is pure 'New York in the fall' and I always pull it out during that season. Wolf Moon is fucking great.

 

Fun fact: Pete-ah is buried about five miles from my house and people from the Metal scene here pretty regularly visit him. I've been a few times myself especially because they were my ex's favorite band.

Looks like Escailles de Lune is getting re-issued in a sexy 48 page book and 1 bonus track.

 

 

I already have this album but I'm a pretty big sucker for CDs that come with a book. :thinking:

 

So I ended up getting this. It's pretty much as it's described. There's a forward by Neige describing how he got the idea for the album. And some other written material. A lot of pictures of Neige and the lyrics are all translated. There's a bonus track too.

 

The book isn't blue like it is in the picture though it's pretty much nearly black, or a very dark navy.

 

Having already owned the album previously I'm pretty happy with it but if you've never heard or owned the album this is pretty much an essential purchase. (as I've stated previously in the must have album thread)

So this album doesn't officially come out until the 19th. However, since I ordered the book album it arrived already. The dang thing is nearly 90 minutes long!

Pretty good stuff so far. The above track is a B-side that only comes with the wooden box set though.

Turkish folk psychedelic 

 

 

Grind but its doesnt hit you over the  head so much like other bands do. They slow it down at times but also add a black element to it.

I got the new album by The Pretty Reckless, and it’s really good. It’s better than their previous album IMO, which I found to be a little disappointing compared to their first two albums. If you like female fronted rock music, you should check it out.

I guess I've become a Synthwave fan.

 

Eh, Gunship is a bit if an outlier most synthwave is instrumental and what isn't generally lacks the polish they have. When I was driving for Uber it was always fun spinning this for the drunks :lol:

Scandroid is my favorite synthwave artist, he does both instrumental and vocal versions of his songs. The following are a couple of examples...

I've talked about them on here before and I also wouldn't classify it as Synthwave really but I absolutely love this artist. It reminds me of the atmosphere of watching some obscure VHS copy of a David Cronenberg movie back in the day.

Are you familiar with his (Klayton) other music projects Argyle Park, Celldweller and Circle of Dust? They’re more industrial which is one of my favorite genres.

Came back to one of my favourite albums that I haven't listened to in years: Spiritual Machines, by Our Lady Peace.

 

It's an alt-rock concept album centered around the rise of artificial intelligence and the singularity, and based on the book The Age of Spiritual Machines: When Computers Exceed Human Intelligence by Ray Kurzweil. There are interludes between some tracks with Ray Kurzweil's words. I wonder if @legend has heard it before. What's great is that (from I remember of interviews of the period), Raine Maida wrote it so that the songs can be interpreted as normal rock songs, but each are about the interplay between machines and life (with songs told from each POV). This was the last album that featured Maida's signature falsetto in heavy use. IMO, it's their strongest album of the first four (though all were great), and none of the five that followed have even come close. The final three songs of this album are the best consecutive tracks (and message) of any rock album of the period.

 

If anyone wants to listen but doesn't want to invest the time into a whole album, just listen to the final three tracks: All My Friends, If You Believe, and The Wonderful Future.

 

Right Behind You

Good normal rock song about machines watching people. Favourite line is "You open up my veins, no I don't feel the same. You open up my brain, but I won't be replaced."

 

In Repair

Love this song.  About dealing with self-repair by anything that is alive (physical and emotional). Favourite line is "Take this time to figure it out, know the wire, the fuse, the things that you doubt. The wheels, the air, the metal, the mouth. There's something, something."

 

Life

This was a big hit in Canada. Regular rock song that builds well. Song about the struggles of being alive. 

 

Middle of Yesterday

From what I remember, a song told from the POV of a machine that keeps failing, and is sorry, looking back with regret. 

 

Are You Sad

Slower song about. From what I remember, about a machine/person who is attempting to help another person from within their mind.

 

Made to Heal

Song about a machine that helps people. Favourite line, "I'm a thief, a liar, an angel in the fire. I'm a king, a drug, the push that comes to shove. I'm a freak, a star, I'm everything you are. I'm your Jesus. I'm your pride."

 

Everyone's A Junkie

About addiction to modern technology and life. 

 

All My Friends

Tied for my favourite song (along with the next song). Very creepy. Written about human's suspecting that machines have become intelligent and not knowing what to do, suspicious of the control they have over humanity, and the silence from them. A song about paranoia and fear. "Still they sit alone on a hill. Their mechanical thoughts have left them out on their own. They're not buying this."

 

If You Believe

The counter to the previous song: Uplifting, and written about a human knowing that the future can be better if we just believe and work together with AI. Guitar tracks on this are intense, especially near the end. I think nine tracks in total at the same time, all done by Mike Turner. Favourite line: "If you believe in the world I'm calling, if you belong in the world I know, you'll be strong."

 

The Wonderful Future

About a sentient machine/person, and the relationship (romantic?) between her and a man. There is a hidden interlude/segment 15 minutes after the end of the song where a man speaks to a machine/person far in the future. Best lines: "She builds a strong alibi from the future that's here. She needs to know I'm alive, but I'm flesh and I tear." And also, "She's beautiful and wild, and I can't compare. Wild, it's just not fair. It's just not fair."

This whole album is fantastic but this song is some weird love child of Goblin and synthwave that starts at 1:40

 

Ive been on a bit of a Mastodon kick lately
