  1. Agreed on the Genghis Tron. Listening to them right now, actually. I don't think the new Torche has quite leaked yet. I've only got their first album and In Return. But there's two tracks up on their myspace. So far, the two tracks sound pretty excellent. Piranha's opening makes me think of Sick Sick Sick. Grenades seems a bit spacier/poppier. But that showed up on In Return anyways. Plus, with an album title like "Meanderthal" it HAS to be good.

  4. I'll back anyone who's mentioning Red Sparowes. Those guys have an incredible live show, to say nothing of their studio work, which is also stellar. Any time they come to the Toronto area, I'm there with bells on. I went on a pretty big post-rock kick last year. Went through about two dozen various acts before finally sticking with: Gifts From Enola Russian Circles Laura Pelican gets a lot of respect these days, but I always seem to find their stuff lacking somehow.
  5. Pygmy Lush - Bitter River (click for review) http://www.sendspace.com/file/onqgpp
  6. Yay for you being the only person I've generally agreed with. The new QOTSA rocked me more than I figured it would. That Spoon album is also pretty awesome. I've heard great things about Battles but not bothered to listen, much to my chagrin. Stuff that's occupied the play list more often than not: Matt Good, Grinderman, QOTSA (obviously) Carina Round - Slow Motion Addict jesu - pale sketches, life line (FYI Soundless Space, check these out, as they pretty much pwn Conqueror. The inclusion of Jarboe of Swans on life line eats my face every time.) Dillinger Escape Plan - Ire Works (Not as amazing as Miss Machine, but pretty much trumps most other heavy releases) High on Fire - Death Is This Communion (Massive points for association with Sleep, and former association with Melvins and Steve Albini) Oceansize - Frames The World/Inferno Friendship Society - Addicted to Bad Ideas Other mentions probably include: The Locust - New Erections Pig Destroyer - Phantom Limb Ministry - The Last Sucker And the entire Kyuss discography, which didn't come out this year, but dominated my listening habits for the entire year.
  7. Agreed, and well said. I figured I`d be rocking Amputecture for a long, long while, but I found myself putting it away only a week or so after I picked it up. Then the new Isis came out, and I didn`t even bother with Amputecture until a week ago. It`s gotten a bit better after in some parts, but meanders way too much. Frances the Mute rocked my feeble clerk world, as did De-Loused before that (although none of which rocked me nearly as much as Relationship of Command could)
  8. Anyone actually see Alexisonfire live? It's somewhat hard to avoid anyways these days. Anyrate. George does most of the talking. Dallas doesn't do the frontman thing well. Plus, if one considers the City & Colour lyrics... Sweet jesus. If anyone's looking for the definition of banal, there it is. Don't get me wrong, Dallas has a great voice, and he's decent on guitar, but he couldn't keep anyone's attention during their live shows. And there has been a shift in George's vocals. Mostly in terms of distortion on the mic. Which generally makes sense. There were a few times on the first album I heard his voice crack and cringed. Not saying it sounded horrible, but simply that it sounded like bordering on permanent damage soon. But yeah, there's a notable difference even in that between Crisis and Watch Out! - esp. in terms of intelligible lyrics. So yep. That's my rant. I'm glad they're still noisy-ish, and I'm especially glad George annoys so many people, too.
  9. Ondaatje = awesomesauce. Lamentably, I'm stuck reading suffragette fiction for an essay. Blergh. Edit: Equus is also fantastic.
  10. I digs her. Could see why people wouldn't. But still. I love her weirdness.
