Music for 10/9/17!!! Marilyn Manson, The Black Dahlia Murder, Gill Landry, Metro Boomin’

@@@ Marilyn Manson: Heaven Upside Down (Concord, 2017)  Fantastic, there’s nothing America needs more than a new Marilyn Manson album!  Manson reminds me of bag of chips that you buy in the supermarket — it’s huge bag but it’s half air with some greasy shit at the bottom.  Or think of it this way — he’s a snake oil salesman pretending to be Satan.  On this first tune he borrows from the Nine Inch Nails playbook with some tense aggro for his posturing and sonic horseshit.  The second tune is glammy straight arena rock that you might find in a new country tune.  I desperately urge the youth of America to seek out something else besides the Manson clownshow.  If you want the rough shit for real there’s plenty of heavy metal out there.  If you want mainstream rock just listen to that and fuck this asshole in mascara.

@@@ The Black Dahlia Murder: Nightbringers (Metal Blade, 2017)  I got to this record this week’s All Music notable release email.   This is in the classic metal/thrash neighborhood with a pumped up drummer.  Wow, they’re all mad pumped up.  These guys are not the roughest gents on the block but they put Marilyn Manson’s pony ass on a  piece of toast and have him as a shitty snack.  Regular readers know that I’m not a huge fan of the classic metal but these guys bring it hard and they’re quite committed to what they’re doing.

@@@  Gill Landry: Love Rides a Dark Horse (ATO, 2017)  An Americana record from this week’s All Music notable release email and from a member of Old Crow Medicine Show.  The instrumentation on this first track is fiddle, acoustic guitar, piano, shaker and and bass.  It’s more old school than alt.  The vibe on this first track, Denver Girls is more faded and melancholy than partyistic.  Landry’s voice is very low register so that plays a role in creating that impression.  The second tune features some lovely sparse electric guitar playing to go with some slide guitar in the back and the strummed acoustic.   This is on the downer trip, which is fine, I like downer music.  If you dig the classic miserable old school country where it’s all heartbreak and isolation Landry will hook you up!

@@@ Metro Boomin: Blue Pill ( , 2017) Off the Apple Music hot tracks section.  It may turn into a dance floor banger but is a laid-back skitter with some all right rhymin’ and some less than all right Auto tuned vocals.  Oh there are two autotuned vocals here.  Outside of the vocals, the bass, and the beat there is a little keyboard floating through but it’s mostly a stoned out track by a couple of gents who sound like they’re stoned and free styling on the microphone.  Skip the blue bill yo.

Music for 10/3/17!!! Antichrist Siege Machine, Archspire, Caligula’s Horse

@@@ Antichrist Siege Machine: Morbid Triump (Self-released?, 2017)  I found this metal outfit on the blog tapewyrmmetal.net.  It opens up with a long intro of clinking chains before it launches into a crusty thrash that is both satisfying and grating.  The ‘singer’ has his grunt on something fierce and I’m more interested in the drummer and the guitar player.  The second tune Goat Throne is some sort of hymn to barnyard toilets. This is some pretty raw, high energy business.  I was having a session on Sunday and one guy was saying that he read about a dude who had been, you know, fornicated by a horse and it had killed him.  I’ve never entered that arena but this sounds a bit like what it might be like to have a horse dick having a riot in yer ass.

@@@ Archspire: Relentless Mutation (Season of Mist, 2017)  I switched up my music blogs and I’m now in the editors picks at heavyblogisheavy.  Nice name.  This is a technical metal with a caveman singer.  Oh my, this is super nerdy metal.  The tones are sculptured and these guys lurch from one super difficult passage to the next.  I don’t know what to compare this music to but the grunting of the singer and the roughness of the playing is in conflict with the super precision and immaculate performance.  It’s like going to see the bearded fat lady shoot fresh fruit pies out her ass — it’s stunning and a technical feat but it’s a bit voyeuristic.

@@@ Caligula’s Horse: In Contact (InsideOutsideMusic, 2017)  Speaking of horses and dicks!  What a wonderful thing the universe is.  As soon as I mention that some random dude impaled himself on horse penis, here I discover a band named after one of the most lecherous men in history and it’s a horse!  Synchronicity.  Now I must say that this is not what I would think a band like Caligula’s Horse would sound like.   This sounds like, hmm, Kim Kardashian’s shiny ceramic masturbating horse.  It’s epic arena metal cross humped with Styx.  An operatic singer, slick production and sort of pretty boy metal tunes.  It’s entertaining in the way I was mentioning before with the bearded fat lady shooting fruit pies out her ass.

Music for 9/11/17!!! Death From Above 1979!, Alvvays, The National, Afrojack

@@@ Death From Above 1979!: Outrage is Now (Warner, 2017)  I think I’ve peeped these guys before but this one opens up right in that stoner rock riff zone.   And the singer comes in epic rock star style over heavy rock drums.  The second tune takes a pretty big step towards the mainstream — I could hear this shit on the radio, the radio for people who just eat what’s put in front of them.   Ah, it’s the single, I’m not so stupid.   I’m on the third tune and these guys are taking the stoner rock sound palette and trying to pimp it to the non-hardcore.  The singer has a bit of a puss attitude so points off for that.

@@@ Alvvays: Antisocialites (Polyvinyl, 2017)  If the Cure and U2 had a big fat baby it might sound like this first tune.  It’s gloomy and anthemic with a female on the mic which changes the vibe — no Bono douchebaggery, thank God for that.  The second tune takes the tempo and the feeling is mo dreamy.  It’s all right, I don’t like this guitar sound and the wistful major label guitar indie is not something I’m dying for right now.

@@@ The National: Sleep Well Beast (4AD, 2017)  I’m gonna try to go song by song on this new National record because they deserve the microscopic all orifice review, not the kindly ‘I’ll pass on this please’.  These guys are getting a huge pass that musically they don’t deserve.  They might be the best dudes ever but when a long time indie runner starts slipping the mainstream cheese to the NPR demographic somebody has to step in and call bullshit.  This first tune (a live version of the opener) is the embodiment of milquetoast, not toast with milk which is much more dealable.  There is a little sonic dressing to the basic piano/voice serious indie ballad but it’s not only a snoozer it’s completely predictable musical baby food for the masses.  See you tomorrow with the same shitty attitude!!!

@@@ Afrojack: No Tomorrow (Wall Recordings, 2017)  Some Drake inspired booty r&b. At least the verse and then it goes big skitter/epic synth hook in the chorus.  Interestingly, the piano part in this tune is very similar to the tune above from the National.  It sounds like they’re singing ‘I’m getting leeches like there’s no tomorrow’ or ‘I’m getting lychee nuts like there’s no tomorrow’.  Could it be bitches?  Is he getting bitches like there’s not tomorrow?  I’m not sure because the mood of the tune is a tad dark for a mainstream track.  Maybe he’s getting britches (slang for pants) like there’s no tomorrow.  But why so many pairs of pants?  Color me confused.

Music for 9/8/17!!! Kelly Clarkson, Foo Fighters, Sam Smith, Prophets of Rage

It’s early September and the music business is up for ramming their wares up the ass of America as you stupid idiots don’t pay attention during the summer.  So the front page of Apple Music is chock full of ‘superstars’ and fake news!  I love fake news, it’s the best.

@@@  Kelly Clarkson: Love So Soft (Atlantic, 2017)  We kick off with this track which interestingly began its life in a Viagra commercial!  Yes, fake news!  She appears to be striking a funky Prince pose ala snappy funk but with some pop flourishes.  I’ve never thought Clarkson to be a particularly sexy performer but she’s gonna take a piece out of Queen Bey’s neighborhood.  Apparently she has an incredibly soft pussy and as I haven’t been there to verify we gonna have to take her word for it.  She’s also working in some Aretha Franklin flavors and I’m gonna have to take a couple points of for too many vocal tracks at the end of the track.  That’s too much Kelly Clarkson yo!  Good use of funky sounds.

@@@ Foo Fighter: Look (Sony Music, 2017)  Imma thinking it’s about time to put a fork in the Foo but I will peep because you know, that’s what I do.  It’s classic Foo taking punky, buzzy guitars and mashing them up with arena rock song structures (especially in the vocals).  The Foos have been in the game for a long ass time so they’re gonna bring their game professional and not drunken bamboo style but this combination of wistful lyrics and arena rock smells like Margaret Thatcher’s (pre death) snatch while not being so soft like Kelly Clarkson’s coochie.  It’s coochie day here on Deep in the Music!  Go Team Va Jay Jay!!!

@@@ Sam Smith: Too Good at Goodbyes (Universal, 2017)  Speaking of snatches and a gent that prefers not to partake here is a ‘colossal ballad’ that is aimed straight at the heart of super sad females.  Big mouth honcho Bob Lefsetz got moist panties over this track, but Imma thinking it’s a bit long on the schmaltz and could use some muscle.  I swear Adele could beat this dude at mud wrestling and lest ye think this is about identity politics it’s about the idea of a tune combining tough and tender.  Too soft and it’s floppy like overcooked pasta and too hard it’s just an overcooked pork chop bone.  And that’s before you dock him a couple of points for the cliche lyrics.  Check the lyrics and see for yourself, he’s really good at goodbyes.  Yeah I get it.

@@@ Prophets of Rage: Strength in Numbers (Concord, 2017)  Tom Morello’s rock/rap supergroup with a pre-release single.  It’s basically a Rage Against the Machine track — same riffage, same punishing rock/rap drum beat.  I wasn’t feeling the first singer who I think is from Cypress Hill but when Chuck D hit the mic I felt the tune much more.  Big Chuck D fan over heah.  It’s no Killing In the Name Of but shit changes.

Music for 8/3/17!!! Indonesian Junk, Lucy Rose, Skrillex & Poo Bear, Mick Jagger

@@@ Indonesian Junk: I’ll Run Away (Rum Bar, 2017)  A late ’70s/early ’80s old school rumble punk/rock single I got to via the music blog Indiepulse.  The singer has a bit of Joey Ramone and they’re a bit looser than the Ramones.  There is an unexpectedly nice guitar shred solo but it’s a tad long on the outro.  It’s a cool tune but feel free to call it a day when you need to.

@@@ Lucy Rose: Something’s Changing (Lucy Rose/Communion, 2017)  Folky singer songwriter that features a harp on the first tune.  This is just the intro so the flavors may change.  The second tune brings in some super mellow reverbed electric guitar and Daniel Lanois sounding production.  It’s super soft and intimate music — no feelings are going to get hurt in the listening of this record.  #guaranteed.  Get out your chamomile tea and just kick back into these welcoming sounds if that’s how you float.

@@@ Skrillex & Wool Bear: Would You Ever? (WEA, 2017)  An electro single off the hot tracks section of Apple Music.  Tis a chopped vocal salad dance floor banger.  The male singer’s voice fades in and out of processing as he keeps asking the lady in his life ‘would you ever run away with me?’  I’m assuming Poo Bear is the singer and Skrillex is at the computer.  As a technical show it’s a solid B, as music it’s C-.  The last 15 seconds is actually mad hot but that’s too long to wait and they should have started with that boom titch and maybe eased up on the chopped salad.

@@@ Mick Jagger: England Lost (Universal, 2017) This single has been getting press in various locations and on music blogs that I follow.  It’s Mick Jagger bitching about Brexit over a grime arrangement.  It’s not so grime-y imho.  I just looked up the definition of grime (electronic music that came out of jungle/UK garage and hip hop) and outside of the featured vocal by Skepta this is surprisingly Stones-y with harmonica, a few guitar riffs, mid Stones-era disco influence all served up over a pretty straightforward funky beat.  I don’t want to get into the politics of Brexit as it’s mad complicated but the idea that people would vote against their own economic self-interest seems to freak people out.  Contrary to ruling class behavior which is always focused on economic self-interest, many folks are good for an old fashioned fuck you to those at the top and why that is shocking is more than a bit sad.  The assholes who have been gorging at the financial pig trough in London deserve a hale and hearty ‘Go fuck yourself’.

Music for 7/24/17!!! Vera Blue, Meklit, Ritual, Shania Twain

@@@ Vera Blue: Perennial (Island Records Australia, 2017)  Some Kate Bush-y epic electronica/adult alternative off the music blog Indiepulse.  The sounds here are a piquant stew of mainstream pop/electronica and New Age with a lot of modern sounding synths, a little schmattering of acoustic guitars and plenty of multitrack vocals.  All this slathered over just the right amount of funky for housewives drum machine beats.  I’m not a buyer, it panders.  I tried to find a lyric video as that’s my favorite thing but I couldn’t find one.  And that will be your loss, not to see these lyrics unfold on the video, the tears streaming down your face as you realize yes, I need to be brave, yes! I need to do more self care, and yes! I will love again!!!!

@@@ Meklit: When the People Move the Music Moves too (Six Degrees, 2017) World music off this week’s WRIR playlist chart email.  It’s a mash of African sounds, some American black music and adult alternative sounds.  It’s uplifting for sure.  Ah, I’m not super low IQ — I went to get a video and I see Meklit is an Ethiopian-American so that explains the blend.  As the first tune unfolds it has some nice muscle to it so it’s uplifting but it’s not soft, a combination I don’t really love.  The production is strong and the horn section is happening.  The lyrics are not to my taste but I’m very finicky.  She has really mashed American music with African music here.  Check her out.

@@@ Ritual: In This Moment (Atlantic, 2017)  Metal off the Apple Music new release section.  The first tune is opening up like a Hollywood soundtrack — epic with huge tom rolls, chants, and a rising guitar squall.  In an odd turn of events the second track gets into a blues vocal with thunderous arena rock production.  Yikes!  I guess that’s what this record is going to be as the third tune keeps those blues inflected vocals, though a dude steps in and they start rocking.  I can’t really get with this music, it’s not a blend of sounds I can get with.  It’s just too shiny and epic and shall we say a tad cheesy for my taste.  There are a bunch of covers of songs here that I don’t think needed to be covered.

@@@ Shania Twian: Poor Me (Mercury Nashville, 2017)  A pre release mainstream country single off the Apple Music hot tracks section.  It is breathtaking how far stretched country music has gotten.  I can’t find a single country music element in this tune — not a twanghy guitar, no pickup truck lyrical references.  Ms. Twain is a big star, she doesn’t have to do country music and it’s just an observation.  I neither hate the tune nor love it, it just sorta passes through and is over.

Music for 7/21/17!!! The Grape and the Grain, Umoja, Lafo Taylor and Aabo, Jeremy Pinnell

@@@ The Grape and the Grain: Holy Rollin’ (The Grape and the Grain, 2017)  If you’re looking for some sexy boy classic rock for your hot summer day these guys will hook you up.  I got to this EP via a music publicist.  The singer is feeling his hormones.  I’m not sure about the guitar player as he sounds like he’s been holed up in his room studying great rock differs from days gone by.  Big Foghat/Led Zeppelin/Lenny Kravitz/Bad Company vibes here for sure.  The drummer is pulling his weight or otherwise this trip into very familiar territory would fall apart.  I liked the opening track the best.

@@@ Umoja: 707 (Awesome Tapes from Africa, 2017)  A South African bubblegum disco re-issue I got to via this week’s WRIR review email.  I tend to be a bit prejudiced against South African music as the beats don’t have the heaviness of the West African music.  The reviewer makes the good point that these early synths and drum machines are making a comeback in the tight blue jean indie crowd so folks should check out the African working of these sounds.  They’re not my favorite sounds but they’re deployed in a much funkier manner here than white boys and white girls and their wonder bread funk.

@@@ Lafa Taylor & Aabo: Feel (Mixto, 2017).  Some hip hop influenced club boom/titch I got to via the new release section of Apple Music.  A couple MCs freestylin’, some synth bass and other non bass patches.  The second tune has a less pleasing vocal hook.  This is the kind of music they have on in Wall Street bars — bouncy, low IQ, and faux funky just like the folks listening.

@@@ Jeremy Pinnell: Different Kind of Woman (Sofaburn 2017)  A pre-release singer from a down and out country singer whose debut made my year end list.  I like Pinball’s voice — it’s world weary but not so flat and boring that I want to turn the stereo off.  On top of that Pinnell’s band is pretty top notch, especially the guitarist.  This is not your standard Nashville babyfood, and thank God for that.
