Pink Floyd - The Wall

Thursday, June 18, 2009

This is the classic rock opera by Pink Floyd, focusing on feelings of isolation. It was also one of my favorite albums as a child, but this could be due in large point because of the lyrics "we don't need no education". I have since learned that I do in fact need an education. Download links above and below.

My Chemical Romance - I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love

So this is My Chemical Romance's first album, which was released on indie label Eyeball Records and produced by lead singer of Thursday, Geoff Rickly. Personally, I don't think it's nearly as good as their later records, but there are a few utterly brilliant tracks, and a few pretty good tracks. There is also the one song I can't stand by MCR on this album - which is Cubicles. And that's because its nauseating to listen to. Anyways, I say download and listen to one of my favorite records. :D

Thrice - The Alchemy Index Vol. III & IV

So this is volumes 3 and 4 in Thrice's elemental masterpiece, The Alchemy Index. Holy shiiiit is it good. I can't really put into words say, how much I love and appreciate the Earth EP. I will say though that Moving Mountains is amazing, and is based on a passage in Corinthians. And it's lovely. These discs make my heart happy. That is all.

Moist - Silver

This is the first album by the popular Canadian band, Moist. It was there highest selling record, and it's pretty damn decent. Especially for a discount bin find at a used record store. My favorite track still has to be the title track, Silver. Good stuff. If this has meaning to you- after Moist broke up, lead singer David Usher went on to have a successful solo career as well.

My Chemical Romance - Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge

This is, without a doubt, my all time favorite record by any band or artist ever. For realz. I could gush and gush but there's no need. I love this record with all my little blackened (uber lame) heart. If this record were a boy, I would marry that boy and make sweet, sweet love to it 3 times a day. AND bear it's children.

The Used - Berth

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

Okay, so the truth is, I'm not generally the biggest listener of live albums. But I listened to this one a whoole lot. That is in part due to the fact that the last song, Maybe Memories, breaks down into Refused's classic, New Noise. And I really do enjoy that song a lot. So this is great as fuck. And if you like The Used, it's definitely worth having. Awesome.

My Chemical Romance - Life On The Murder Scene

Joy of joys- here's the first My Chemical Romance live album! Yay! It's not made up of a complete set like The Black Parade Is Dead!, but it is actually a collection of audio tracks from various live performances on tv and the intarwebs. My favorite of these live tracks is The Ghost Of You, because its much more raw than the glossed over album version. It also contains two demos and one b-side. Not going to lie, the b-side and the demo for Bury Me In Black are two of my favorite MCR songs ever. So yes. Enjoy!

Thrice- The Alchemy Index Vol. I & II

So here's volumes 1 and 2 of Thrice's very epic The Alchemy Index, a collection of four EP's, each one based on one of the four elements (air, earth, water, fire). Not to be confused with the work of Earth, Wind, and Fire. My favorite EP in the series is Water, and it's here in all it's glory. However, the entire body of work is amazing. So enjoy this until I post Volumes 3 and 4.

Spinnerette - Spinnerette

Monday, June 15, 2009

This is the debut full length by Spinnerette, otherwise known as Brody Dalle and some dudes. This album sounds like what would happen if The Distillers had hot sweaty sex in the back of a pick up with Queens Of The Stone Age. WAIT. That's essentially what did happen. And it fucking rules. And because of that, a 13 and 14 year old me is holding hands and skipping to the beat. Download link in titles above and below.

Attack In Black - Years (By One Thousand Fingertips)

This is the latest release by the Canadian former hardcore, now indiefolkwhateverthefuck band, Attack In Black. To be honest, I haven't listened to it much. It seems more airy and spacy than their previous CD, Marriage, which had a thicker, warmer tone overall. It isn't unlike completely unlike The Curve Of The Earth, but has a much glossier sound to it. I don't know what I'm on about. I'm pulling all of this out of my ass.

Jonas Brothers - Lines, Vines And Trying Times

Don't you enjoy how the album art is smooshed? That's because the stupid cover is shaped stupid. And I didn't feel like properly converting the measurements so FUCK YAS. Anyways, here's the new Jonasshole album, it's out tomorrow. I haven't listened to the whole thing yet but I will say that Don't Charge Me For The Crime is ridiculously great and needs to be appreciated by everyone a bit more. Also Miley is on this, and I tried listening to that but Nick and her started the song with the vocal strain they mistake for passion so I switched the track. So yeah. Also, I am not liking the country vibes I'm getting off a few songs, pretty effing lame. Anyways. Dig in, fatties.

Alexisonfire - Old Crows / Young Cardinals

Yay! Leaked! I've been waiting for this one for awhile. It is definitely a departure from their older work, but I'm fucking digging it a whole lot. Some people aren't though, so I have to say you need to really hear the whole thing before passing judgment. Also, the opening bass lines of the lead track, Old Crows, was totally effing ripped from the Joy Division song, No Love Lost. Seriously, listen to it here. If that gets acknowledged, I'll be cool with it. Until then, I may be irritated. But yes, enjoy the link. OH! If the last three songs happen to show up all as Heading For The Sun, change the last two to what's referenced below. Don't bitch, it's a leak.
