  1. Kevin aka kirbenvost here. RIP, Chris. Very sad news, it's tragic for someone to go so young. I never knew him well but he was a fixture here, and a memorable person. Condolences to his loved ones.
  2. It's not Led Zeppelin without Robert Plant. Him and Jimmy Page are integral to the band's sound. Even Page could maybe be replaced by someone who can play really well, but Plant's voice is so distinctive, I don't even think a good impression could cut it. Just look at Rush... Any band who tries to be the same band without their original singer is a joke. I love Zeppelin, but I would not support this. Shame on Plant for backing out when everyone else is up for it, but maybe protecting the legacy is the better route.
  3. I had to listen to Kary-Light (the title track from that album) repeatedly when I first got the album.
  4. I would say it's the best balance of production and content, #2. WTTNS has the ultra-slick production, but there are also mistakes in the mastering and a lot of intentional distortion which I don't think lends itself well to their type of music. It shows in the iTunes Live sessions, they're the same songs with the same arrangements but they sound so much better without the overproduction. #1 is very sparse, partially because of the songs themselves, partially from the mastering. I've heard the remastered ones and I prefer the originals, they have this feeling of such loneliness... it really feels as if you're there in whatever context the song puts you in. So anyway, I was looking for more Kary and came upon this: http://radio3.cbc.ca/bands/KARY I've currently lost the ability to to rip streaming audio, but this is a start. If anyone has the time and setup to do it or has access to mp3s, sharing would be appreciated. So far I prefer the songs from Light, but these are still really good.
  5. I guess I should check out People in Planes! Psh, who needs NF$ anyway? I've got over 2000 and don't even need any... As for the new album, you're not alone Shiri. I like most of the songs (including Oblivion), but it's just not the same as the last 2 albums. I love it, it's just not quite as good. I blame it on the production... the Live Sessions are the same songs but sound different, closer to the style from the first 2 albums, aside from the way he's singing now. But I'm not liking whomever they hired to do the mastering and stuff, he gave everything a weird reverb/distortion sound that's really different. Plus I can notice errors where one instrument will suddenly switch from one side of the stereo pan to the other for just a second or two, then go back. Stuff like that's not supposed to happen.
  6. New songs? For shizzle? NOW I'm excited!
  7. Apparently Tracy is buying Live at Massey Hall... if it's heavy on the music and light on the crowd noise, I'm very excited to hear it.
  8. Trifonic - Broken (Specter Mix) If anyone likes sort of glitchy downtempo electronic music, check these guys out: http://trifonic.com. You can listen to all their music on the site. Great stuff.
  9. Haha, I always miss it...oh well, hopefully most of them wind up on the album. Although last time one of my favorites didn't make it on...Can't Get Shot. I love that one.
  10. ^I've had that one stuck in my head all day, and was also the last song I listened to. Glad you're enjoying it.
  11. They were Paul Murphy's original band, and helped found their now-defunct label Dependent Music. They had 2 albums I know of. The first is extremely hard to find, I have only been able to find someone who has it, but he won't be able to send it to me for several weeks as he has no internet access right now. The second, titled Light, is available on iTunes Canada (where I bought it), and Maple Music, where you can get mp3s or the actual CD, although I'm not sure if they ship overseas, I haven't checked...but I see the price is listed in Euros as well so that's a good sign. Last.fm also has a page for them where you can stream it.
  12. Kary: Water.Rocks Body Without Organs Orion - The Hunter And my personal favorite, Light
  13. While you're at it with the free downloads, you should check out Kary, the old band which contained 3 of the current members of Wintersleep. It's like Wintersleep's more intense stuff - Nerves Normal Breath Normal, for example. I'll post highlights of their album Light later.
  14. I have not yet been able to listen to it...
