    Allison-glad to hear you got the first Sparklehorse album,I still think it`s the best one,even though the other albums are close behind.
    Merc Rev`s Boces is a good album,I like Yerself Is Steam more but Boces is pretty good as well.
    Glad to hear you got the new Modest Mouse ep too.

    Halfman-Mazzy Star was great,their first album She Hangs Brightly is my fav,the new Hope Sandoval album is so good that I think it`ll be in my cd player until the end of the year,one of my fav albums of this year.
    Helmet I don`t like as much as Jawbox,did you know that Page Hamilton of Helmet is jazz and classical trained guitarist?he listens to John Coltrane,Bill Evans,and Bartok more then anything else,I find that cool.
    yes,Will Oldham`s voice does fall apart alot,and it`s cool!check out Lost Blues And Other Songs if you see it around,lots of great songs on that.
    Shakti with John McLaughlin I bought 10 years ago,the violinist on it is Ravi Shakar`s nephew,McLaughlin`s music is great,check out the album he did with Carlos Santana from 73-Love ,Devotion,and Surrender.
    Don Cabbalero is a great band,they play what`s been called math rock,weird time signatures and stuff like that.

    Hey Half Man

    U Must Buy Will Oldham – Guarapero/Lost Blues 2
    That Album Has The Most Beautiful Song Will Ever Wrote, But Thats My Humble Opinion
    "The Spider’s Dude Is Often There"
    Many Of His Songs Make Me Cry But This 1 Makes Me Cry + Sad + Happy + Whatever More

    All Of His Albums Are Great, So Buy Them All My Friend

    Got some diverse jams spinning at the moment.

    Bought Mazzy Star "So Tonight That I Might See".

    Nice collection of slow moody, but crisp songs. Heard "Fade Into You" when it came out off of that record. A nice song, as was every other one Hope and David made. Perhaps this was another band who couldn’t make bad songs. Looking forward to hearing Hope’s new disc that Salami and others have spoken of.

    Also bought Helmet "Meantime". Lots of power chording here, especially with their hit "Unsung". It can get repetitive throughout the album but for some reason, it still sounds good, even after seven years of hearing them the first time. Their lyrics on this album also appear confusing on the surface but I think they write in much the same vein as Jawbox with a kind of hidden story/allowance for interpretation/application bent. It takes some talent, or at least strong chemicals to do this…..

    Borrowed from Neighbor Man:
    Palace Brothers "There Is No-One What Will Take Care Of You"
    Don Caballero "American Don"
    and Shakti with John McLaughlin.

    Palace Bro’s is musically neat and similar to the Sparklehorse VivaDixie. Is the breaking of Oldham’s voice a regular thing or just on this record? Somehow it fits well with the rest. More on them later. Need time to take in fully.
    Caballero and Shakti are both instrumentals so far. Not done listening to any of these three yet. Shakti is Indian jazz. McLaughlin has his acoustic guitar modified so that there are a diagonal set of strings that go across the regular set right over the opening on the body. Very weird looking but it sounds pretty good. Caballero defies description at this point.

    On Sparklehorse, I am convinced of Linkous’s genius. On VivaDixie, he seems to have the songs listed in a story format with the -short blurb songs like Double Pumper Holly and Little Bastard Choo Choo falling in between the good songs. I would think he is using transition here but I haven’t been able to figure out a plot yet. Lyrics would be nice anyone….

    Dump – That skinny motherfucker with the high voice?

    Found it (finally) today at the best record-store in Holland (if you are interested: Sounds in Venlo). It’s James McNew from Yo la Tengo doing a lot of Prince covers in a kind of lo-fi way, I especially love ‘1999’, done in a dreamy Stereolab-like way, it gives the line ‘I was dreaming when I wrote this…’ a whole new dimension! other highlights: ‘Raspberry Baret’ and ‘Pop Life’.

    Also been listening to:
    East River Pipe – The Gasolene Age
    Built to Spill – Ancient Melodies…..
    Snowpony (see the ‘I just bought….’-topic)
    the new Fugazi

    now listening to a Belgian radio show, last three songs played (yes, quality radio does exist!):

    Nick Cave – Into my arms
    Triffids – Wide open road
    Leonard Cohen – In my secret life
