    ^ from the Decemberists? The are definitely talented, even if I'm not that into them. Nice guys, smart music.

    @mharwitt - technically & sonically, MBV is more talented. But I like Neil Halstead's voice way better, plus Mojave 3 is just so dreamy.

    obligatory AWS mention since that should be the first and only thing that comes to mind when you hear "The King Is Dead", not the Decemberists or whatever!

    Okay so I just digested Ghostland Observatory for the first time. From what I can tell so far, good but not anything to write home about. They do rage, however. Hard. And there's something to be said for that in this day and age. So, probably going to hit up a concert in a monthish. Can any of this thread's minds help me w/ some recs for similar but better artists? I also just got discovered the RA Podcast, which is pretty cool. [​IMG]

    I will add that Slowdive > MBV.

    lol, no, although for what it's worth they (slowdive) agree with you. slowdive had some great songs on souvlaki but were otherwise not much better than a talk talk and mbv rip off band. i believe they also used the droning effects that those two groups explored in a superficial way, rather than using it to experiment. their pop sound sound came from synth instead of tape loops. when they started messing with loops it was on a computer, it produced Pygmalion (yawn), whereas Kevin Shields was able to coax Isn't Anything and Loveless out of tapes.

    [​IMG] Well that takes me back to the late '80s and also bands like Spacemen 3 & Loop in addition to MBV - later the 2nd wave 'shoegazers' such as Slowdive, Chapterhouse, the Darkside, early Ride and even Blur - used to see these at the Camden Falcon, Islington Powerhaus, New Cross Venue etc...

    Surprisingly, in 2009 Kevin Shields recorded a track with Paul Weller '7 + 3 Is The Striker's Name , apparantly he was/is a big Jam fan.

    Anyways. My Bloody Valentine is ok. I'm not super into them though. Have Loveless. Not something I listen to a lot. I do like some of Kevin Shield's solo stuff though.
    it isn't easy to listen to them often. you should listen to their cover of map ref though. it's fun.

    Is Devotion older or newer than TD? I rather enjoyed TD for what it was. Today's listening: [​IMG] This puts any of that American female pop shit to shame.

    Mostly Do Make Say Think and Tom Waits.

    I'll second Tom Waits - Small Change. Great album - earthy, with a side order of humor, and he is an excellent story teller.
