I would like to write a post about politics, you know all the stuff going on, but i kind of feel my time would be wasted. There's absolutely no chance someone else has written what I would like to write a billion times on numerous forums and opinion pieces - no chance in hell. So as much as i'd like to get my politic on I feel like i should save some of my political ruckus for, I don't know, the election. In the mean time there is some awesome new music available right now, firstly let's talk, 'My Morning Jacket,' or let's not - how about you go and listen to their new album 'Circuital,' which is pretty darn good. I have kindly put a link of the single 'Circuital' here, so if this kind of stuff floats your proverbial boat then perhaps you should purchase or find a good internet friend to help you find it - as a side note I've only embedded the easiest to find youtube link, the album gets much better.
Other interesting music available right now includes the 'Arctic Monkey's' new album 'Suck it and See,' which I have to say is probably the worst title for an album - unless you happen to be in the Rolling Stones. Funnily enough the album is the completely opposite of what you'd expect from an album of that name, very nice dynamics, no 4 by 4 mixes where everything is compressed and turned up to 11. Here's a link to the title track, which i'm already starting to get tired of. In other news Brian Eno has a new album coming out called, 'Drums Between the Bells,' which promises to sound exactly like a Brian Eno album, maybe some kooky synths only he knows how to make sound good, possibly a some interesting rhythms taken from a rare record cut by some genius who Brian Eno met and we never heard of.
But - and this is probably why I'll never be a Journalist - the absolute must listen music right now is Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi's new album, "Rome." (Anyone notice how my most important point is at the bottom of the page and not the top, Columnists would be aghast at that, but I'm a bad-ass, a rebel, whitey and the man can't bring me down.)
If you haven't heard "Rome", the run to your local CD shop, or briskly walk to your computer - up to you - and grab it, it's definitely worth multiple listening's and could be the Sunday hangover chill album of the year. There used to be a full link on youtube for the whole album, but apparently it's unavailable right now, so here's a link of the first song and here is a quick little promo slash feature about the album.
Video wise or let's say moving picture wise, Adam Curtis' series 'All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace' has finished and all 3 episodes are available online on youtube or other avenues, it's worth watching although I feel the last two episodes are kind of a waste of time. 'Breaking Bad' is finally going to continue after leaving the world with a two year cliffhanger - if you haven't seen this show, find it and watch them all, probably one the best shows after 'The Wire,' and 'Curb Your Enthusiasm,' which happens to be returning with Parkinson's jokes and the like very, very soon.
On a personal note, due to my poor health at present I will probably be posting a lot more regularly - not on my health, of course. Don't worry I'm fine, just can't do things that would prevent me from writing at the moment.
