Was: Sleater-Kinney, 1995 debut. I can hear bits of the late '80s-early 90s American alt-rock touchstones (Nirvana, Pixies, Sonic Youth), and singer Corin Tucker has a shriek that reminds me oddly of early Cyndi Lauper, to my surprise and delight. Cool debut; I gave it a first-listen yesterday (I'm slow) and immediately followed up with a second. 

Is: Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers, "Free For All". Dunno if the title (track) is meant to be an indicator, but by the time of this album the Messengers seem to be exploring beyond the hard-bop sound to approximate some of the freer sounds that were bubbling up in the jazz world at the time. (February 10, 1964, to be exact - Beatles ride train from NYC to Washington.) Some of the faster numbers reach the intensity levels of the Coltrane Quartet - close your eyes and you can imagine you're hearing Elvin and Trane, instead of Blakey and Wayne Shorter.) And Blakey whoops with delight (while punishing his drumss) throughout.

I enjoy Book of Mormon, the score for it isn't very memorable but Turn It Off is a gem. Nothing is better than suppressing your inner gay.

Sleater-Kinney! I'm seeing them in the new year, and I'm very excited. I also recently read Carrie's book Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl, which was really good. Given that you chose the debut, do I take it you're planning to go in chronological order?

Forget to mention what I'm actually listening to, which is kind of the point of the thread so here goes, it's the new album from Phil Elverum (of The Microphones/Mount Eerie notoriety), and Julie Doiron (of 90s indie rock band Eric's Trip) in their second collaborative album. The first one, Lost Wisdom, was released in 2008.

Yeah, since I enjoyed the debut, I may as well continue! in a mixture of chronological and highest-rated. (And depending how much is available for free on Youtube.)

Ooh I like this thread (I'm quite new here, so I'm still finding things). At the moment I'm listening to the album "Setting Sons" by The Jam. My dad and I joke that we listened to the same music in college, and this is definitely an example of that. "Thick As Thieves" is probably my favorite song from the album.

I think you'll like Dig Me Out, their third album. It's their equivalent of Nevermind, probably. Plus, the cover imitates Kontroversy by The Kinks which is a pretty cool detail.

Haha yeah, I noticed that! Some great albums on that wall... 

Last night I listened to "Call The Doctor" twice plus the first half of "Dig Me Out" before taking a break to watch my weekly show ("Bob's Burgers") and I'm really digging their basic sound, especially in the vocal attack - I hear the Raincoats, B-52s, Throwing Muses. They're good at writing those angular-hook guitar parts, too. Sometimes I wish for a bit more intelligibility in the lyrics, and a bit more variety, but mostly I'm wishing I'd checked these women out TWENTY YEARS AGO, when their names were in all the rockmags

Welcome to the forum, tl@g, hope you'll explore further and stick around and write stuff...have an apple! apple01

S-K wise, I've given up on chronology and am now just randomly choosing albums. So far, I think "The Woods" is the standout. (An 11-minute psychedelic noise-jam from a band that made a 10-song, 22-minute debut!)

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

The Woods is fantastic, probably my favourite after DMO. 'Modern Girl' is such a stunning song.

Currently going through some Christmas albums, given that Christmas is my favorite day of the year (followed by Chinese New Year). Lately I've been listening to a huge set of hymns by the Oxford Trinity Choir published during 2017. Whilst some hymns are great adaptations, some are a bit of a snoozer. Just thought I should share it with the forum here:

Highlights for me include "Hark! The Heralds Angels Sing", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", "We Three Kings", "Coventry Carol", "The Lord's My Shepard" and "I Vow to Thee My Country"

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

^I refuse to acknowledge the existence of Christmas until after (American) Thanksgiving. Partly because I believe in seasonal timeliness and it's still fall where I live for a while yet, which is a season I greatly enjoy and want to cherish every bit of; partly because I feel like it's unpatriotic to disrespect Thanksgiving; and partly because Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

Today is a beautifully cold, wet, windy, rainy day and so I'm listening to Phillip Glass's Symphony No. 1: Low and this on repeat:

WHY IS HE SO PERFECT beatlemaniacs_02_gif I love how he's elegantly serious/seriously elegant for most of the song and then the acoustic drums come in and he turns into an embarrassing dancing dad a-hard-days-night-george-9

...and now don't I discover, to my amazement, that an animated version of the band actually performs for Bob's kids themselves, in the video for "A New Wave"!

If Sleater-Kinney were trying to purposefully gain my personal designation as "best band of the 21st century so far", they certainly know how to do it.
