Calexico, good choice. Always loved Giant Sand and the offshotts from them. An amazing bunch of musicians in those crews.
Yeah, Giant Sand's great. Saw them live in Vienna a couple of probably 15 or more years ago, got to chat with Howe Gelb and I think one or two of the other guys (it was the "Danish" version of the band). Nice people, great music. :)


Long song, but this version of this song live is so cool to me!
I was thinking "how long could it be?" (as Ive experienced people calling 5 minutes "long" ) -- but yeah, 24 minutes, not bad. I liked longer songs for a while, some of my favourite bands tend to make longer songs... the longest I can think of right now is 51 minutes ("Heathen" by Wyrd). There are surely longer ones, too. At some point the definition "song" might become questionable, however ;)

I'm obsessed with Bobby Brown Goes Down by Frank Zappa these days. The music is great and the lyrics, the lyrics, fire.

'I've got a cheerleader here
Wants to help with my paper
Let her do all the work
And maybe later I'll rape her

Oh God, I am the American dream
I do not think I'm too extreme
And I'm a handsome son of a bitch
I'm gonna get a good job and be real rich'

Jesus.

New Trail of Dead album, its very long and very good:

New album by German punk rock legends Slime. With a new singer, they open a new chapter, hence its titled "Slime 2" (their first album back in 1980 was titled simply "Slime 1" )

I was sure I'd posted them before!


I don't think there has been any Nemophila in this thread yet though!

They're a fairly new super-talented japanese all-female metal band.
I don't like all of their stuff, but I absolutely love their newest song.

Man, i ALWAYS forget about this fukin' band LOL
Yeah, while theyre great, theyre not constantly on my radar either; I get reminded they still exist only whenever they release an album every couple years.
I first listened to them about 20 years now, when they released Source Tags & Codes – such a good album :)


I have a few of their records but didnt really follow them for a couple years, until with Spotify it became so much easier to just listen to anything new coming out. Before, I would buy everything I was interested in – nowadays while I still buy stuff, its generally only those records I enjoy a lot. I might buy this new one.

Btw, Spotify doesnt have the EP The Secret of Elenas Tomb from 2003 or 2004 that I have, there was a great song on there. ("Intelligence")... but its on YouTube:

Looks like it's been 3 years since i last posted Electric Wizard. That's not right.



All these years later and it's still one of my favorite albums. Funeralopolis is just immense, i love it.
