More Music!

Wow. I have to say, this is pretty damn tremendous.

  1. The description was so good that I knew it was going to be Battles before I even heard it – and I don’t even have the CD.

  2. In my defense I went to highschool with members of Slint.

  4. Meh. I’ve been told that my entire life I’ve yet to understand what’s there that fascinates so many people.

  5. I don’t know! When I first heard them I didn’t like the sound at all. My friends were all into them at the time, but I never really cared about their musical choices much. About a year ago, which was about two years after my friends started going wild over them I just really wanted to listen, and I can’t explain it. I think it is the angular and slightly scary vibe they give off.

  6. I really did go to highschool with them. And was living and listening to music at the same time that other “Louisville” bands were playing. Endpoint, Kinghorse, Evergreen, Rodan, Sunspring, Telephone man etc…

    I cannot stress this enough, the hands down best music ever recorded in Louisville, KY (and among the best albums of all time as far as I’m concerned) were the two albums that Evergreen recorded. You can still buy the self-titled album from Touch and Go records. You should do that. Now.

  8. OK, I just ordered a copy of Evergreen’s eponymous record for $1.50 on Amazon (and made sure it wasn’t the band from the other LA). It looks like it was rereleased in 2003 on Temporary Residence (and remixed, for better or for worse).

  9. I don’t think it will let you down.
