    Starting out with an at most mediocre support act with awful accoustics, there wasn't much hope for the main act, Portugal. The Man. Fortunately, the accoustics were much better for Portugal. The Man. And they fucking rocked. 1h30m-1h45m pure energy. The focus wasn't on the visually part--no spotlight on the lead singer, for example-- but more on the auditory one. Great skillset from the whole band. Highly recommended. Also great encores with re-interpretations of Helter Skelter and Hey Jude.

    Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse - Dark Night of the Soul

    Little Girl (feat. Julian Casablancas) is great. And David Lynch. And... overall a very interesting album.

    I have been listening to Helmut Lachenmann a lot lately. Here's part of a piece I like quite a bit.

    I was a huge fan in the early days - Pretty Hate Machine, Broken, Fixed and of course The Downward Spiral... and the concert from that tour was fantastic..
    While I still enjoyed The Fragile, I kind of lost interest during the wait for the next release.. I didn't enjoy With Teeth much..

    Maybe I should revisit..

    Funny, I was listening to side 1 of pretty hate machine last night. I really liked NIN when I was a small child in the early, early 90's and grew out of it. NIN was actually very formative for me. My primary hobby in life is sound design, and NIN really sparked my interest obsessively and made me pay very close attention to sound at a young age. There are a lot of really great songs (if you can ignore the lyrics) on hate machine. It would have been a great instrumental album. The sound design in downward spiral is very good. Another album that would have been wonderful sans lyrical element.

    My breakfast music is become Preisner's work for Kieslowski, soundtracks principally and his tribute album

    Later I usually listen to Zorn's Song Project. Nice vocal variation from Mike Patton to Sofia Rei to Jesse Harris.

    It is. You might also like Moonchild - Templars: In Sacred Blood. Patton is incredible

    HOLY SHIT! Thank you!! I am a big fan of Patton, I saw him live twice (Mr. Bungle and Lovage) several years ago... IMO he is nothing short of Genius... from the sounds of this first song, it is very Bunglish, makes me think he may have had a big hand in the composition... What a great find, wonderful...

    I heard it once when it first came out. I will listen again and give you my two cents.
