Indescribable lol but I hate to be that girl cuz I've missed out on loads of great tours, sadly. But have been lucky enough to see a lot of them, too!

I love Hum and have repeatedly tried to get into Failure, but I can't.

Been wanting to check out Hum for ages. Maybe next year after Harvey Milk.

Today I listened to:

Ruines Humaines
Amesoeurs

Neige <3

Hum is like the opposite of doom metal or whatever it is you listen to lol. I hope you like 'em. Failure is ridiculously talented, too. I can't fathom what someone wouldn't like about them, but to each their own. They are so layered musically and the lyrics shake me to the core. But Fantastic Planet and a lot of Magnified is about heroin and well, you know me.

IMO everything Ken Andrews touches that isn't a cover is gold. I love his solo album, ON, and Year of the Rabbit.

I listen to a handful of doom bands. The rest is shoegaze, post-rock, black metal, alternative, drone, etc. Even some motherfucking brit-pop.

Only God can judge me.

Matt would have been 41 on the 16th. He passed in his sleep of a seizure in 2003 at the age of 26. So sad.

I wish I listened to more drone. I lack the necessary powers of concentration.

Drone and shoegaze are closely related imo. Farewell exemplifies this.

Mogwai - Kicking A Dead Pig

This is actually the first time I've listened to it.

Hum is one of my all time favorite bands. I also really like Failure and Harvey Milk.

Just missed Mogwai at First Ave earlier this month. Pretty bummed about that...the live shows have always been great.

hey life's a drag:

I listened to Tragic Boogie today. Good stuff! Somehow they sound like a welcome combination of Failure and Hum. Are their other albums as good? I'd listen to more but I can't do it all in one day like I'd like to. My time is pretty precious right now so I wanna know if I should keep listening! I definitely enjoyed this one though, got lost in space the way I like to. Wish I could get high and listen to their discography tbh

Failure are working on another album, and supposedly Hum have been off and on as well for years, so, there's hope!

FlamingGlobes I tried listening to the new GJ album and turned it off about 1/3 of the way through. Something just wasn't right. Maybe it's just me, and all my hardcore has left me T_T

Also listened to MCIS since I listened to SD and it's also not overrated. A bit pompous and bloated maybe, and imo not as good as SD because that guitar tho, but still awesome and worth all the praise

The vocals on new GJ are a little off. It took me a few spins to get into it, but it definitely clicked for me.

The rhythms and the riffs. Something about it brings me back to being that skinny 17 year old flailing around in his room like an idiot. I like it.

That's awesome! And whilst Tragic Boogie I consider their best, I would definitely also recommend their newest self titled. Throughout the album it just has this consistent enormous and all encompassing sound that kinda just sweeps you up and doesn't let you down till the very end. The opener Killing Queens in particular is just a kick-ass song, as well as "Group That" and "I Am The Wedding Cake". I will mention that the second half of the album isn't quite as great though. Good, but definitely not as memorable as the first half.

And just listened to Comfort (Failure) because apparently I can't read about an album I like without needing to listen to it. It's like hearing Failure as an awkward teen before they blossomed with Magnified and Fantastic Planet. Kellii wasn't even in the band yet and that makes a huuuuuge difference. Screen Man still kicks ass though.

I have that same compulsion. Once someone starts talking about an album or a movie and the conversation really gets going, I have to go back and revisit it.

Same here I pulled out all of my old HUM CDs, just because they've been brought up so much. It's been a while since I've listened and I honestly forgot how good their entire discography is.

I need to find a free place to listen to TAFH lol cuz I listened to Gish, SD, PI, and MCIS over the last couple days to expose little one to them. I think she likes SD and PI the best but it's very variable and I'm probably projecting. That's okay, though.

Not to be a parade rainin' piece of poop.
But my mom used to play The Beatles to me as a baby all of the time, and I grew up to hate The Beatles.

Tread carefully.

My dad did the same and I find them kinda of lukewarm. Guess I'll let her discover good music on her own. T_T I just needed a break from the wheels on the fucking bus

Listened to Palms' self-titled for the first time in a while just now. It's got that dreamy/droney vibe that a lot of us have been bonering over as of late, but it just never feels like the vocals gel with the rest of the band.
