Friday Music Day: 10/12/18

This week's music discovery: Locust Fudge, an early-90's alternative group from Germany, half of which was Dirk Dresselhaus, the man who would later record as Schneider TM. Their first two albums would have fit nicely between the Beck and Sonic Youth albums released at the time (1993 and 1995). Their third album was released last month. I've mostly listened to "Relativity Check" as the title sounds close to the Schneider TM hit "Reality Check", and as Schneider TM recorded it solo a few years back for a soundtrack. For more cred, I'll mention that J. Mascis plays guitar on the first track! I totally would have been into this band when those first two albums came out if they had been on a DGC records compilation or similar.

  3. So Guided By Voices has been touring all year practically with no Minnesota dates. But I've been patient. The Twin Towns have been good to Pollard and company, and I knew they'd make it here. Just when doubts started to creep in they announce a December 30 show. This should be a classic 3 hour, 60 song tour de GBV and and nice way to end what has been a trying year. Tickets now available if you want to join me. Plus I got an extra, not sure who's I'm going to bring yet. But I have time.

  4. I meant to mention this in my own post, but never did. As it's over, I can name the following as my official Albums Of The Summer:

    -Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy
    -Janelle Monáe - Dirty Computer
    -Superorganism - Superorganism

    1. I'd say my three have been:

      * Beach House - 7 (for unknown reasons. It's not like I've been sitting lazily on the porch or beside a fire during the evenings at all this summer, and it seems like that's the type of setup that this music would be best for)
      * Soccer Mommy - Clean (Sort of sneaked up on me. I loved "Your Dog" from the first listen, but the rest of the album took some time to grow on me. I guess I kept forgetting to skip to something else after I was done listening to the one song)
      * Parquet Courts - Wide Awake (I've never really given these guys much of a chance, but the title track is a jam (my son agrees with me), and the rest of the album is pretty great, too)

      But now, mewithoutYou's new album, [untitled] has come out, and that's definitely my fall jam.

      1. I liked 7 a lot more than I thought I would. I've gone through Clean a few times and know I should go back to it. Haven't caught up to the newest Parquet Courts yet.

        Should mention a close runner-up for my list would be the new U.S. Girls.
