foo fighters have some solid singles

i like torche, a lot, but they sucked live last night. like, a whole set of thudding muddy sludge instead of the pop stuff. homeboy has never been great at the straight up thud and anyway this is new orleans and we have more muddy sludge than we know what to do with.

(kylesa were boring/pleasant as usual)

i know people are big on floor or cavity or whatever but the best floor song is "downed star" which is basically a downtuned hum song.

new ep is really good though, wish they'd played some of that stuff.

Floor rule (as did Cavity)

Man, Torche ruled live when I saw them open for Boris. Very fun set.

I kinda like the Foo Fighters too, at least many of their singles, but I look for completely different things from each band. I won't hate on anyone for hearing a similarity, but "sounds like a sludgier Foo Fighters" has become sort of a lazy shorthand for Torche at this point.

Come up to Portland on the 21st! Only $15 and change.

i like that torche song markers posted. it doesn't seem especially "metal," tho. more like just heavy rock.

listen to meanderthal right now

call all destroyer, Friday, 8 October 2010 02:41 (seven years ago) Permalink

yeah? what little i recall about the meanderthal samples suggested that it was more "metal" than the new one. i'll check it out now.

Daniel, Esq., Friday, 8 October 2010 02:43 (seven years ago) Permalink

the new one has more straightup melodic stuff but meanderthal has the better songs overall. i guess just listen to both. but the song markers posted is VERY reminiscent of "across the shields" which is one of the best two meanderthal songs.

So the Floor box set has been staring down at me from the shelves of my local for the past three months (the $40 8-CD version), is it worth taking the plunge?

I'm glad he's alive and doing fine, but that would've made one of the best rock n roll death stories ever.

New album is criminally good and catchy. Would have sold multiple millions in 1994.

Harmonicraft has become my go-to headphone record while working out at the gym. My gym is on the 2nd floor of a building across the street from a beach and has floor-to-ceiling windows that look out at the ocean.

This evening while on the cardio machine, with the sun setting and my heart rate way up, just as the chorus of "Kicking" dropped i saw a Humpback Whale breach and splash down in to the shimmering water. It was awesome.

new to Torche. obv into stoner stuff but I had a hard time convincing myself to listen to Torche because of the descriptions given of them; I like my sludge/stoner stuff to be dank and depressing and the idea of poppy melodies and shit didn't appeal to me.

they came by a few weeks ago and I was bored and it was $10 so I figured why not check it out and the opening strains of Meanderthal were like the coolest fucking thing ever and on listening to em this is pretty great stuff. really love the s/t and Meanderthal, still need some more time to determine what I think of Restarter.

also got the Floor box cos it was only $26 on Amazon, have enjoyed listening to each disc at random to see their progression. On Dove right now..

Like you, I was late to the party, mostly for the same reasons you mentioned. I've since converted big time and I think the new one is my favorite!

Wise decision to grab that Floor box, great stuff in there.

It took me a while to get into Restarter because I thought it wasn't poppy enough (I usually have the opposite problem) but it's pretty good. It's gonna sound REALLY good if/when the weather gets a lot warmer.

ultros ultros-ghali, Wednesday, 18 March 2015 17:22 (two years ago) Permalink

I think if it was poppier, I might not have given it a chance (I didn't like the previous stuff much, but now I'm going back to all of it). "No Servants" is my JAM.

Also, bought the deluxe edition of the vinyl direct from the label just for "Harmonslaught" - man, what a riff!

These guys have a real cool sound. You can definitely see where it might have come from but the mixing of those sounds is really unique. I'd definitely like to see Torche live to see how it goes over.

torche is a great live band
