Listened to my stepdad's band (blues berry jam) dish out some nice bluesy jams last night at their semi annual warehouse party. Good BBQ, booze and music!

Marina and the Diamonds - Electra Heart sampler

Six tracks from the new album. I'm sad that her sense of humor doesn't seem as strongly evident in her new stuff, but I'm still finding it catchy enough.

The Decemberists - "The Hazards of Love"

I just can't make up my mind about this disk. On the one hand, it's extremely inventive, crossing over lots of genres. And it's a concept album, for which I am always a sucker.

On the other hand, the heavy guitars, when employed, have that nagging sort of overdriven transistor sound (with harsh, even-numbered harmonics) rather than the sweeter sound of overdriven tube amps. I have no idea what was actually used, but that's how it sounds. Also, it's mixed extremely loud, which I don't usually like.

Still, it's intriguing and segments of it have really gotten hold of me.

Anyway, I haven't been this bipolar about a disk in a long time. Definitely worth a listen.

Whippersnapper, you've put into words what I've also felt about that album. The least listened to out of my other Decemberists selections. Has yet to grab me.

That is such a detailed, nerdy critique. I love it. smile

Just one reason I keep coming here.
