I hope you get a chance to see them live. That is indeed the way to go with Causa Sui. I especially like the way Skøtt sounds in a live setting. Drrrrrums.

How did you find the new Wobbler album btw?

Epic? Yes, that's what I was going for. LOL

I just dig the ebb and flow of dynamics in Jazz... in the same way I prefer Elephant9's Silver Mountain which also dug deeper into more floating and chill atmospheres...though still packed full of Carolina Reaper bits!
Glad you're enjoying BR, but you're doing it wrong! Tongue SM's my favourite E9 album, too, though. Funny how music works!

I have it, but haven't listened to it yet. A bit sceptical after reading a bit about it, but I'm ready to give it a chance!

I need to revisit it soon myself. From what I remember from hearing it a couple of times before their concert back in September, it's another strong release from these guys, but I don't remember too much details from it.

I also didn't spot the most recent eventyr album from Tusmørke called Bydyra. I got it here the other day and am head over heels in love! It sounds like the music from one of my favourite Danish cartoons 'Cirkeline' - y'know that saucy good slightly psychedelic yet highly melodic jazz rock that often adorn old school tv shows and cartoons.
There is even a song that includes the high pitcted mouse vocals of what I presume is the Norwegian cousin to our Danish Ingolf (think the mouse voices off Cinderella).
Sounds like Dungen were hired to make an album for hippie children.
I have, but haven't gotten around to listen to the two new Tusmørke albums either. Hopefully they're a notch or two up from their last two albums. For my money, they haven't quite managed to replicate the brilliance of their debut. A children's album from these guys sounds like a perfect match though, so I'm especially looking forward to hear that one.

Gudbrandsdalen, yes, I have family up there. A beautiful painting fitting the beautiful music. Good job, both of you! Clap

Anyway, last couple of days:

Metallica - s/t
Queensrÿche - Operation: Mindcrime (PM's usually not my thing, but this album just ticks all the right boxes for me.)
Rush - Hemispheres
Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts I-IV
Stefan Wenger - Ortus
Ruphus - New Born Day
Høst - På sterke vinger
Undertakers Circus - Ragnarock
Susanne Sundfør - Music for People in Trouble (First impression: really good. Her best yet? Mmm...possibly.)

Today's and yesterday's list.

Roger waters-- pros & cons of hitch hiking
Roger waters-- Radio Kaos ( pretty great album. Love the Mel Collins saxophone.
Queensryche: operation mindcrime ( finally tracked down an original cd pressing of this album and it is light years better than the 2006 catastrophe remaster found in the box set I bought many years back. If anyone wants a piece of advice, stay away from any Queensryche remasters. They are absolute garbage and that includes the 24-bit digital remasters as well. Stick with original pressings. :)
Supertramp-- breakfast in America (blu ray audio)
Rush-- Signals (blu ray audio)
Genesis-- we can't dance (it's a great album and a lovely recording. Can't knock it. ;)
Ministry-- Filth Pig
Lunatic soul-- 2
DIO-- last in line
Ozzy osbourne-- no more tears ( a loud mix, but still a highly listenable record at a higher volume. ;)
NIN-- down in it (EP Halo 1)
Fields of the Nephilim -- Psychonaut EP (1989)
Pink Floyd-- The Division Bell (original pressing)
Iron maiden--Fear of the Dark ( original pressing and the last of the Martin Birch era. What a fantastic cd. Huge punchy sound with loads of dynamics. Something that doesn't exist in today's metal releases. )
Raving and drooling I leaned on his neck with a screeeeeeeamm! ;)

Hmm, that's more or less how I felt the first couple of times I listened to it; an absolutely jaw-dropping, seat-of-your-pants cinematic kind of listen. But I found that after listen number four or so it more or less lost its effect. Hopefully it stays fresher longer for your ears, though. It has been a couple of months since my last listen, though, so maybe it's just one of those to periodically revisit to appreciate its full immensity.

Arco Iris - Los Elementales

Awesome choice, among the many others you seem to have in regular rotation. Hopefully I'll be unwrapping this one under the tree in a few weeks time. Big smile

Anyway, here were today's picks:

Wobbler - From Silence to Somewhere
Yes - Tormato
Deluge Grander - Oceanarium (A pretty serious AOTY contender)
Alan Parsons Project - Tales of Mystery and Imagination
Cirkus - Wild Dogs (A pretty big disappointment; I normally love Quebecois groups, and especially with all the high ratings this one had been getting I had been expecting this one to be one of my AOTY candidates. Unfortunately it just struck me as being so flat and uninspired that I couldn't even get through the first three tracks)
Hadal Sherpa - Hadal Sherpa
Nau Aletheia - Los Misterios de Eleusis
Island - Pictures (The whole city is engulfed in a fog so thick I can barely see across the street; this is exactly the kind of mindbogglingly eerie musical palette that such weather demands!)

Was asked to provide music for a friend’s birthday. Kept it to stuff I thought might be appealing to the people present. Played these: 

Tortoise - TNT
Can - Future Days
Jaga Jazzist - A Livingroom Hush

With bits off of:
Neu! - Neu!
Mogwai - Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will
Vulfpeck - Vollmich/Thrill of the Arts
Tortoise - Tortoise/Standards
Weather Report - Heavy Weather/I Sing the Body Electric
Stereolab - Emperor Tomato Ketchup/Dots & Loops
King Crimson - Discipline
Portishead - s/t
Don Caballero - What Burns Never Returns/American Don
Ashra - New Age of Earth
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Luciferian Towers
Do Make Say Think - Goodbye Enemy Airship the Landlord

Had to send out this very list to a few people who requested it. That kind of thing is always lots of fun.

Susanne Sundfør - Music for People in Trouble (First impression: really good. Her best yet? Mmm...possibly.)



I'm doing it wrong? My preferred way bar none!

I am listening to that Sundfør album btw. I seem to change my mind about it all the time though. Today the start of the album seemed so slow and unengaging that I seriously questioned how I just the other night had been completely head over heels in love with this. 2-3 tracks later and suddenly the music starts to gel again...
Hmmm maybe it is one of those deals where you genuinely have to be in a certain mood to 'get it'. Nah strike that, maybe it's just me who needs to be in a particular mood.

The new Ulver is an album that I really love. In fact so much so I'm seriously pondering whether or not to bestow upon it the all-important AOTY-title. Just feels a little weird on a prog rock site but then again half of my list isn't really what I'd call prog rock either. More like experimental.
One thing about the album: unlike most other Ulver releases this one actually starts out with the album's least interesting tunes. I really like em but the remainder of the album only gets better adding new wave and post-punk touches to the gorgeous contemporary electronics palette.

Yesterday:
Bushman's Revenge - Jazz...
Mumpbeak - Tooth
Band Of Gypsys - Live at the Fillmore
Canzionere del Lazio - Miradas
The Budos Band - ll
Suburban Savages - Kore Wa!
Thundercat - Drunk
Faust - So Far
Stormy Six - L'Apprendista
