The Elected - Sun, Sun, Sun 

A nice folk-rock album, with lots of pleasant, rustic instrumentals and folky goodness.

Have had that CSN&Y album saved as a playlist for months now and still haven't gotten round to it. Thanks for the reminder!

Revisiting what is probably my favourite rock song of the 2010s, in both of its versions. Saw this live last summer and it was life-affirming.

I was listening to "Up For the Down Stroke", the early Parliament offering, but now that it's over, I think I'll succumb and give a proper listen to a Muse album (or two?)...y'know, for research! apple02

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!"

Some jazzy, funky hip-hop that @vonbontee might appreciate, with some saxophone soloing towards the end... Quite emotional too, as Paak and Q-Tip (of A Tribe Called Quest fame) both eulogise Mac Miller and Phife Dawg respectively.

Anyway, currently listening to Timcast IRL because my brain is too sleepy to make decisions about what music to listen to. I might play Bowie's Black Tie White Noise (1993); I have a craving for some Bowie impressionistic saxophone paintings.

Released on this day in 2002, one of my top 2 or 3 favorite Bowie albums, it's just such a complete package sympathetically and thematically:

I love the original album but this version is so much more progressive and diverse. I always wonder why it wasn't featured fully in the original releasea-hard-days-night-ringo-7

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 Love that "Complete IASW Sessions" box so much. My one tiny complaint about the original LP is that Tony Williams is so restrained.

Now playing

Binging the short but spotless discography of Big Star, who (next to the Velvets) are undoubtedly the best band who never made it big. How they didn't see significant commercial success with songs as sweet and timeless as these is beyond me.

Yeah, "Gurls" is probably their most perfect pop song, definitely should've (and could've) been a hit. Honestly though, I don't much love the albums; Alex Chilton's melodies just don't grab me half the time.

I think Radio City is my least favourite of the three, the highlights are there but a few of the tracks really drag. I enjoy #1 Record all the way through, though - there's a lot to enjoy there in terms of power pop goodness, particularly 'When My Baby's Beside Me' and 'In The Street' (which some Forumpudlians might recognise as the theme song from That 70s Show in a Cheap Trick cover).

Then there's Third which is a different beast altogether, like it's trying to be an upbeat folk-pop album but is too drunk and depressed to do it properly, and so ends up being a very disjointed but emotionally satisfying collage of sounds. I only listened to it for the second time tonight, but I think it's going to end up becoming one of my favourites.

Agree, I prefer the first LP, with Jody Stephens input. And I know I could mix the best of the first two LPs into one super-enjoyable longplayer. Still haven't heard the third LP, or Jody's solo album.
