Title: Music Thread
Post by: wadesworld on November 16, 2018, 01:04:51 PM
Didn't want to make a thread just for Mumford and Sons' album released today, but did want to see if any Scoopers had an opinion on it.  Also figured music is a topic worth discussing.

Regarding Mumford's new album, I didn't like much of it the first time around, but the more I listen to it the more I like it.  It was the same way with the last album they released.  I think the genre change just throws me off the first time I hear them.  Pretty slow so interested to see what they do for their live shows (will be going to the one at the Fiserv at the end of March), but again, was worried about how their new album was going to translate to live music with their last album to the point that I almost sold my tickets, ended up deciding to go to the concert, and thought they were phenomenal as always, so I think they'll be fine.  But overall I think it's pretty solid.


Other artists/musicians I enjoy include Brett Dennen, Mat Kearney, and Judah and the Lion.

Not really a fan of their music, but after having seen a clip of the Imagine Dragons guy on The Ellen Show and the clip below, I like what the lead singer seems to be about.

I've also been enjoying Lupe Fiasco as a bit of a change of genre/pace for me.

Newest album:

No problem if people don't like Mumford and Sons, but their last 2 albums are nothing remotely similar to what their old stuff was, nor are they similar to each other.

Interesting HBO movie (Believer) about the lead singer's fight with depression and his effort to get the Mormon Church (he is a Mormon) to accept LGBT kids.

Yup.  That's a lot of what he talked about on The Ellen Show.  Didn't realize there was an HBO movie on it.  Talked about how the first time he was able to relate with the friends he had growing up that were LGBT was when he was kicked out of BYU for having sex with his girlfriend of 4 years when to him it was an act of love and beauty yet he was made to feel ashamed.  Seems like a down to Earth, interesting guy.

As the father of an 11 yob, Imagine Dragons gets a lot of play.    I won't say it is great, I will say that it is better than 90% of what is currently played on commercial radio.

Agreed.  They're okay.  But also incredibly overplayed, which makes them less great.

Concur.
For my 12 yob, it's either them or 21 Pilots.

My 11 yog, however, shares my taste in music, unfortunately for her (indie/alt rock). She came home from school the other day and declared, "Dad, no one has ever heard of any of the bands I like."

I get that, too.    My 11 yob has an near encyclopedic knowledge of 80's stuff and will bust out a lyric anytime somebody says something that closely approximates said lyric.    Along with Irish drinking songs.      Will debate the relative merits of Van Halen with David Lee Roth vs Sammy Hagar.    Ponders why he can't sing like the guy from AC/DC.  (whisky and cigarettes, young man, whisky and cigarettes), dreams of hitting that impossible note at the end of 'Take on Me'....... yeah, I am a crap father.

Couldn't agree more (plus the 21 Pilots mention) for 10yob and 12yob.

My proud moment this week was I had Audioslave on and my 10 year old says "never heard of them", so i ask him 'ignoring the singer who does the band sound like?' *2 minute pause* "kinda sounds like RATM".

Good stuff Tower. Some of my best memories growing up are of singing along to my parents' favorite music while driving with them. I was a 90s kid and liked all the music of the time but my parents raised me on Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, and a whole bunch of Jam Bands.....and Eddie Money for some reason. Still know every word of the Rumors album from front to back.

HA! I thought it was just me.

Then I remembered it was Catholic school, so...

RATM is one of my faves. First time I heard Audioslave, I absolutely loved them. Only took a couple songs to think, Hey, sounds like Tom Morello on guitar.

Check out the one album he did with Street Sweeper Social Club, it’s fantastic. Boots Riley (who’s political stance is extreme by my POV and also the writer/director of the movie ‘sorry to bother you ‘) is a great front man

Parental advice:  If you ever label something as "not music," they aren't going to listen to you.  My dad once said that an electric guitar isn't music because it went through an amplifier. 

That's when I started listening to more Hendrix.

I thankfully took my kids to see 21 Pilots last year.  A great show.

80's music is totally in with kids.  They don't get upset when I have 80's on 8 on XM on.

Based on your taste, you should definitely check out Courtney Barnett. New-ish artist with a rad 90's-indie sound (reminds me of Malkmus' guitar work with Pavement). Try The Double EP record and go from there.

Agree, I think they're both better on their own. In regards to LCD, American Dream is definitely the weakest album compared to This is Happening and Sound of Silver. Has a few great songs on it but nothing to write home about in my opinion.

Glad you're going to check out a show. I was close friends with Slug when they were just getting started - the success is amazing.

I think that night he was at my apartment over on Prospect and Brady before the radio show and I had, uhh, a VHS tape of some sort playing on the TV. IIRC he was likely going to stay overnight, but plans changed during that day before the show.. so it was a freestyle about how he wasn't sleeping over anymore, so he wouldn't be able to peep the videos after the show.. a true freestyle, hey.

memorized the words to “hot rod Lincoln “ when I was a teenie, fun song to sing back in the day.  All the girls would get a tingle running up their leg hearing the cadence of what was probably one of the first “rap type” songs. If you could do this, you were beyond cool man!!🕺🏾🤷🏼‍♂️🙉
  Commander Cody
 “Son you’re gonna drive me to drinkin if ya don’t stop drivin that hot rod Lincoln.....”



My pappy said "Son, you're gonna drive me to drinkin',
If you don't stop drivin' that Hot Rod Lincoln. "

Have you heard the story of the hot rod race,
Where the Fords 'n' Lincolns were settin' the pace?
That story is true, I'm here to say,
That I was drivin' that Model-A.

It's got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up,
That Model-A body makes it look like a pup.
It's got eight cylinders and uses 'em all,
Got overdrive that just won't stall.

With a four-barrel carb and a dual exhaust,
With 4-11 gears you can really get lost.
Got safety tubes but I ain't scared,
The brakes are good, tires fair.

Pulled outta San Pedro late one night,
The moon 'n' the stars was shinin' bright.
We was drivin' up Grapevine hill,
Passin' cars like they was standin' still.

All of a sudden in the wink of an eye,
Cadillac sedan passed us by.
I said "Boys that's the mark for me,"
By then the tailight was all you could see.

Now the fellas ribbed me for bein' behind,
So I thought I'd make the Lincoln unwind.
Took my foot off the gas'n'man alive,
I shoved it on down into overdrive.

Wound it up to a hunderd an' ten,
My speedometer said that I hit top end.
My foot was glued like lead to the floor,
That's all there is an' there ain't no more.

Now the boys all thought I'd lost my sense,
Them telephone poles looked like a picket fence.
They said "slow down, I see spots,"
The lines on the road just looked like dots.

Took a corner'n'side-swiped a truck,
Crossed my fingers just for luck.
My fenders was clickin' the guardrail posts,
The guy beside me was white as a ghost.

Smoke was comin' from outta the back,
When started t' gain on that Cacillac.
Knew I could catch him, I thought I could pass,
Don'tcha by then we'd be low on gas.

We had flames comin' from outta the side,
You could feel the tension, man whatta ride.
I said "look out boys, I got a license to fly,"
And that Caddy pulled over and let us by.

Now all of a sudden she started knockin'
Down in the dip she started to rockin'
And I looked in the mirror, a red light was blinkin',
The cops was after my hot rod Lincoln.

They arrested me 'n' they put me in jail,
'n they called my pappy to throw my bail,
'n he said "son you're gonna drive me ta drinkin'
If you don't stop drivin' that hot rod Lincoln.

Post by: ZiggysFryBoy on November 29, 2018, 09:48:02 PM
memorized the words to “hot rod Lincoln “ when I was a teenie, fun song to sing back in the day.  All the girls would get a tingle running up their leg hearing the cadence of what was probably one of the first “rap type” songs. If you could do this, you were beyond cool man!!🕺🏾🤷🏼‍♂️🙉
  Commander Cody
 “Son you’re gonna drive me to drinkin if ya don’t stop drivin that hot rod Lincoln.....”



My pappy said "Son, you're gonna drive me to drinkin',
If you don't stop drivin' that Hot Rod Lincoln. "

Have you heard the story of the hot rod race,
Where the Fords 'n' Lincolns were settin' the pace?
That story is true, I'm here to say,
That I was drivin' that Model-A.

It's got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up,
That Model-A body makes it look like a pup.
It's got eight cylinders and uses 'em all,
Got overdrive that just won't stall.

With a four-barrel carb and a dual exhaust,
With 4-11 gears you can really get lost.
Got safety tubes but I ain't scared,
The brakes are good, tires fair.

Pulled outta San Pedro late one night,
The moon 'n' the stars was shinin' bright.
We was drivin' up Grapevine hill,
Passin' cars like they was standin' still.

All of a sudden in the wink of an eye,
Cadillac sedan passed us by.
I said "Boys that's the mark for me,"
By then the tailight was all you could see.

Now the fellas ribbed me for bein' behind,
So I thought I'd make the Lincoln unwind.
Took my foot off the gas'n'man alive,
I shoved it on down into overdrive.

Wound it up to a hunderd an' ten,
My speedometer said that I hit top end.
My foot was glued like lead to the floor,
That's all there is an' there ain't no more.

Now the boys all thought I'd lost my sense,
Them telephone poles looked like a picket fence.
They said "slow down, I see spots,"
The lines on the road just looked like dots.

Took a corner'n'side-swiped a truck,
Crossed my fingers just for luck.
My fenders was clickin' the guardrail posts,
The guy beside me was white as a ghost.

Smoke was comin' from outta the back,
When started t' gain on that Cacillac.
Knew I could catch him, I thought I could pass,
Don'tcha by then we'd be low on gas.

We had flames comin' from outta the side,
You could feel the tension, man whatta ride.
I said "look out boys, I got a license to fly,"
And that Caddy pulled over and let us by.

Now all of a sudden she started knockin'
Down in the dip she started to rockin'
And I looked in the mirror, a red light was blinkin',
The cops was after my hot rod Lincoln.

They arrested me 'n' they put me in jail,
'n they called my pappy to throw my bail,
'n he said "son you're gonna drive me ta drinkin'
If you don't stop drivin' that hot rod Lincoln.

Pictured you as more of a "Beep, Beep" kinda guy.

I tried getting tickets to the Lumineers show at the Pabst right when they went on sale but the site would put me in the queue and then crash and a couple minutes later it said all the tickets were sold out. Think that will be a great show in a smaller venue but heard last time they scheduled them at the Pabst they moved it to the Marcus Amphitheater due to ticket demand.

I saw them open for Petty. Very good live band.

Spotify helped me recently discover a guy named Dave Hause (recommendation after I’d been listening to Brian Fallon, lead singer of former The Gaslight Anthem). Usually when artists go to rehab and get clean their craft suffers, but Hause’s newest album is right up there with his previous three.

Just saw Brian do an acoustic set in Dublin a few months back and honestly it might've been a better show than seeing gaslight anthem.

I don't have many "saw them before they were big" stories, but Gaslight Anthem is one of the few I did. Saw them play at the Rave as the first warmup act to Thrice, Alkaline Trio, and Rise Against. Thought at the time that their set was better than both Thrice and Alkaline. Then saw them a couple of months later when they were the headliner on their own mini tour in some dinky stage above a bar downtown.

I know they did some shows for the 10th Anniversary of The ‘59 Sound but I think it will be a while before TGA get back together, if ever. The divorce hit Fallon hard and he’s changed his sound from TGA’s heyday. A lot of Get Hurt was about the divorce. He’s a ridiculously talented songwriter and his voice drips with raw and real emotion.

Ever heard his Horrible Crowes stuff?

I'm sure they'll do a few more reunion tours every so often. Most interviews I've read they're always saying that Gaslight just isn't a full time thing but they're not dead.

I have heard some of his Horrible Crowes stuff, a bit too melodic for me as I'm usually more on the punk and edgier Indie side of the music spectrum.

Had tickets to Jason Isbell at the Ryman, had to back out, super bummed. I have never seen him live, but I’ve been told he and the band are solid.

Agree on Caamp and Lone Bellow, so good. Skipped the recent MKE Caamp show to see The Wood Brothers in Madison. Saw Avett Bros at Red Rocks a couple nights last summer, incredible.

Last concert, maybe for awhile, was Grace Potter at the Pabst. One of my favorite live voices in one of my favorite venues, along with Amos Lee. Could listen to him live for the rest of my existence.

Saw The Districts in the Back Room a couple years ago, pleasant surprise.

Also really getting into Birds of Chicago, Mandolin Orange, Jamestown Revival. Loving forward to Black Pumas at Summerfest.

Black Pumas was an interesting change up diversion from a list of respected folk acts. Folks not my genre but I love Black Pumas.  I saw Grupo Fantesma live in Austin a few years ago and that was incredible

My listening tastes have been all over the place, per usual.  Been listening to Glass Animals a lot. Gareth Emery is one of my all time favorite DJ/producers and he’s been predictably prolific the last year or so which has been great Illenium has some great new music as well.

Travis Barker has one of the most insane work ethics ive ever seen, dude is constantly involved in so much.  He’s been producing a lot recently, some amazing throwback sounding pop punk, can’t wait to see who he continues to work with.

My home listening tastes are much more mellow at home than when we go out for live music.

I love lord Huron. Everything from their folky stuff to Ancient Names 1 & 2 is fantastic.

Black Pumas at The Pabst was my last concert pre-covid. Probably will make it my first post-covid concert as well.

Went to give St. Vincent's 'Daddy's Home' a run through and realized I'd never listened to Fountaines D.C.'s 'A Hero's Death' - I'm an old guy so forgive me for being 9 months late to this. If the first two songs weren't on the album (or maybe put at the end) it would be a fantastic album. Surprisingly layered background/instruments, another great example of "you don't have to be a great singer to be a good frontman", and his lyrics are solidly poetic. Strong recommend if you are a punk/post-punk person.

St' Vincent gets a spin tomorrow.

Great album, their first (Dogrel) is also really good. A little more punkish than A Hero's Death.

You're in for a treat with Daddy's Home. It's a departure from something you would more typically expect from St. Vincent but very much a welcome one for me.

For some reason I clicked over to Pitchfork the other day to see what they thought about the album and then I quickly remembered why Pitchfork is garbage.

While we're on Fontaines D.C. there's a new post punk band out of Galway I saw when I was living there called The Clockworks.

Similar sound, great energy, class individuals. unfortunately their new record label made them remove their independent stuff from Spotify so there's only 6 songs now. Give them a listen.

Saw them at Roisin Dubh and at The Social in London. Both times they were incredible and came out for pints.

The two songs on Spotify from their old independent stuff that they've re-recorded are:
Bills and Pills
Can I speak to a Manager

Also I forgot I had this link to an old song as well so 7 songs available.

Smooth f'n album, easy to get lost in it, and really good.

She needs to lock those background singers up before they head out on their own (assuming they're the same throughout the album and the same from SNL)

My favorite albums of the year so far by a fairly wide margin:

Squid - Bright Green Field (bombastic post punk with a lot of different influences / varied styles within songs)

Dry Cleaning - New Long Leg (great guitar work & bass lines, interesting vocal style that people either like or hate)

Wild Pink - A Billion Little Lights (the type of album you can put on and either enjoy in the background as pleasant, but also if you focus on it there are a ton of great details on re-listens, and great heartfelt lyrics, heartland rock type themes for lack of a better descriptor)

Yu Su - Yellow River Blue (fans of Aphex Twin should enjoy)


Nothing else has stood out much to me, a lot of solid but unspectacular stuff IMO

If anything I'd say they've gravitated towards way overrating pop albums these days. More of a good news site, but ratings can be ignored, just try things out for yourself music is totally and completely subjective anyway.

Fontaines D.C. is a band I very much want to see live if they come through the states any time soon. Another band I'd put in their camp is Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, kind of like a middle ground between Fontaines and mid-era Real Estate.  Missed them right before the pandemic put everything on hold, hope they make it through again sometime soon.

Agreed Hope Downs was definitely stronger, 2nd album had a lot more filler, I like the In the Capital / Read My Mind single they put out in between the two but those somehow didn't make it on the album, I guess kind of like how French Press didn't make it on Hope Downs. If they picked an hour+ from all of their highlights a live show would be great (I imagine)

Congrats on the discovery (or re-discovery) for one of the great bands of the 1970s and one of the truly unique artists ever in Ian Anderson.

Locomotive Breath ... Bungle in the Jungle ... A New Day Yesterday ... Too Old To Rock and Roll, Too Young To Die ... Cross-Eyed Mary ... Heavy Horses ... Sweet Dreams ... the incredible Thick as a Brick ... and of course the iconic Aqualung.

Thick as a Brick is a favorite of my 30-something son, whose passion is rock from all eras. A favorite of his dad's too!

Glad to hear you enjoyed Jethro Tull and the extremely unique style.  Their live performances are extremely different and you can fine some of their very early performances on Youtube.  The vast majority of their hit songs were in the late 1960's.

Ian Anderson provides a performance style like no other and the utilization of his flute in rock songs is outstanding.  Anderson is a very, very smart man and please go on the internet and find his interview with Dan Rather a few years ago.  It was on the show "The Big Interview",on AXSTV, where Dan Rather interview rock stars.  The interview was very compelling and one of the best I have seen on that show.

The guitar player in Tull was Martin Barre, who was very underrated, but known to guitar players and seen as an influence by up and coming players in the 1970's. His solo play in Aqualung is always in the Top 50 solos of all-time. 

I have Tull on a playlist and in order:

Aqualung
Locomotive Breath
Hymn 43
Crossed Eyed Mary
Living in the Past
Bungle in the Jungle

Enjoy.

In the Age of TikTok and Google shorts, this period's genre was dominated by classic jams, of which Tull was one of many. Marathon jam songs lasting 20+ minutes with one song taking up half and album were common and are considered classics today. It's a great period to discover.

As I mentioned earlier, I'm a huge Tull fan. But I saw them live twice (both at Poplar Creek) and it was a bit too damn much jammin' for my taste. As much as I appreciate Ian Anderson's talent, listening to him play the flute for 15 minutes straight was a little much.

Last flute mention.

 The Marshal Tucker Band utilized the flute in the beginning and end of the song "Can't You See".  A beautiful song written and sung by MTB member Toy Caldwell, the lead guitarist.  Interesting back story on Toy, he enlisted in Marines, sent to Vietnam in late 1960's, wounded and came back to U.S. and started the band with high school friends. Both his brothers, one a band member, were both killed in car accidents, like weeks apart in early 1980's I recall.

1973 song, jeez getting old...

You are correct - never was a big fan of Jethro Tull. There were so many other great bands in the late 60's and 70's that I thought were much better.

Just personal preference but other than “Aqualung” I wasn’t a big Jethro Tull fan.

OTOH, I loved the Marshall Tucker Band. “Heard it in a Love Song” is my favorite among many really good songs.

Just saw Brian do an acoustic set in Dublin a few months back and honestly it might've been a better show than seeing gaslight anthem.

I'm seeing Gaslight Anthem next month on their reunion tour.

I just saw The Killers for the first time live. Damn, Flowers is one hell of a frontman and performer. Great balance between the spectacle with lights, confetti, etc., and the music. One of the best live shows I've ever seen.

Very interested to see how they sound.  One of my favorite live bands of the 2010s.  They were just magnificent.  Brian Fallon has been through a lot and put on a lot of weight last I saw, which isn't necessarily a voice killer, but should be interesting to see.

They are so awesome.  Its incredible how smoothly they transitioned into an arena band.  My good friend worked on a branding project with their drummer a few years ago and I spent a couple hours with him out in Chicago.  I remember him saying something like "we design all our tours that if something went wrong, we could play the show in a 500 seat theater and still crush it".  I think that translates to how their show works.  Its still all based in sounding tight and being great performers, with or without the spectacle.  Ive seen them in venues from a few hundred all the way to thousands and never been remotely disappointed.

I noticed how much bigger he looked in promotional photos than he did before they went on hiatus. The Europe shows have sounded really good though.

I've been to shows where the music was secondary to the spectacle (U2 360) and this was so well done. My wife and I are considering flying back for their Detroit show and taking my nephew since he's a drummer and their drummer is awesome! I kept asking my wife "how have we not seen these guys live before now?" The opener was Johnny Marr, late of the Smiths and Modest Mouse. Damn, he was good too.

Need to get "Songs from the Wood" if you haven't listened to that one yet.
Heard that many of the songs or lyrics on Aqualung was actually written by Ian Anderson's wife.  Although probably largest in sales, Aqualung is pretty far down on my list of best Jethro Tull albums.

Multiple 10 singles with 2 different bands before the age of 20, a platinum album with Blind Faith, then 8 top 10 singles and 4 top 10 albums as a solo artist...all before he was 40.  What an absolute animal.

Don't forget his work with the Spencer Davis Group as a teenager.

I think a lot of the reason he gets overlooked is because he took a good portion of the 1970s off from making new music. After Traffic broke up, he didn't do much until his 1977 solo album - which flopped. He then released Arc of a Diver in 1980, which was the start of his rise as a solo artist.

He's also a pretty unassuming guy versus the typical front man.

I've seen Winwood live 5 times - the last time was 5-6 years ago when he opened for Steely Dan at the BMO Harris Pavilion.  I took my son and after every song told him it would be the best song he was going to hear that night. He even performed a shortened version of Low Spark and finished up with Gimme Some Lovin.  He sounded like he did in the 80's.

I agree. I'm not even a huge fan. I just posted out of curiosity because I had a ticket fall into my lap last week. It was a good show and they sounded great. However, I can't say I'm a converted to a believer after the show (which does not seem to be the consensus based on the jsonline's review).

They sounded great, playing with a ton of energy and intensity. They're really changing up their playlists, too and going through all their albums. 22 songs, the entire set went 2 hours last night. Fallon is definitely bigger, and his voice isn't as raspy as in the past. I could have done without the banter, though, he was just rambling about random stuff at various parts of the show (is it ok to wear The Smiths or Morrisey shirts, have you seen Cobra Kai Season Five yet, lots about Jersey), which in total took up about 15 minutes total.

That said, go see them on this tour if you can.

New Taylor Swift music...

So its interesting.  I'm no big fan of T Swift since she turned into a pop artist.  I think her fans are insane lunatics and she's in that Beyonce realm of her legions treat everything she creates as OMGGGZZZ THIS IS INSANE.  BEST ALBUM EVER, I DIEEEE

That being said, Jack Antonoff (formerly of Steel Train, formerly of Fun, frontman of Bleachers) is one of my absolute favorite voices in music and he's a production POWERHOUSE.  And he's been heavily involved in a lot of her work lately.  This album feels like it goes a step farther.  Like you could take swap them, tweak a lyric or two, and it could be new Bleachers music.  Some of it is fantastic, some of it is ok, but its very funny to look at how its perceived.  Many pop artists are just fronts for producers melodies and lyrics, but she's always been viewed as a singer/songwriter.  Lyrically she's still influencing I'm sure, but this doesn't feel like she had much hand in melody creation at all.

Yeah black flag had a massive impact on Metallica which essentially means that they directly influenced the invention of thrash and consequential metal offshoots.

I'd argue minor threat isn't even as big of a lasting influence as say bad brains which one could argue is a huge reason Ska-Punk eventually became a thing. Now Fugazi on the other hand had a lasting influence across grunge, indie, etc.

DK is overrated. IMO, they have a million albums and 90% of their songs are interchangeable and the lyrics are lost on the airheads who heard Holiday in Cambodia or California Uber Alles on Guitar Hero. It's sort of like bad religion, melodic punk was already a thing by the time they stopped being hardcore, the lyrics are lost on people and the majority of songs are interchangeable.

Honestly most the hardcore movement really only influenced subsequent offshoots of punk and the bigger offshoots were only minimally influenced compared to the 70s stuff, not really music as a whole.

I'd argue quite the opposite. The DK were a much better and much more musically varied band than Black Flag, whose notoriety was built more on the Henry Rollins cult of personality than their best music, the great majority of which came with Keith Morris on the mic.

Is it only four? That means I have every single one of CD. Weird thought I had only a partial collection must have my bands crossed. Edit: turns out I do only have a partial CD collection Bedtime, plastic surgery and give me convenience. Fresh fruit I have on vinyl. 

It depends on your defining as "influence" I'd say many many offshoots of current music would say Black flag directly influences them than DK. Now in terms of which was most important in the American Hardcore Punk scene Id agree DK was better and more influential.
