Always thought Lindsey Buckingham's Trouble had some Kaputt like elements:

Perhaps Mirage scratches a bit of the same itch - ethereal vibe with focus on melody and percussion

Buckingham track is smooth as hell

I really really like the production on this one.

yeah, someone on the p4k thread suggested it sounds even better than its influences and I think that's true, at least production-wise

niels, Thursday, 11 January 2018 06:00 (one year ago) Permalink

I’m not even a big fan of the supposed sound he’s channeling in here and yet the production on this one makes it work.

Maybe somebody in this thread can help me with this one: Is there a Destroyer song where he cribs the line "It's time I had some time alone"? I seem to remember one (or maybe I saw him play it live?) but I can't recall for sure and maybe I'm just making it up because I think it'd be a great line for a some to appropriate

Listening to As Falls Wichita, So Falls Witchita Falls by Pat Metheny & Lyle Mays, getting very strong Laziest River vibes

They don't really sound that similar, but are both mellow epics

I'm getting those vibes too, thx for the recommendation

Now this is bugging me too, as I seem to recall but don’t know what tune either

Sweet, glad you checked it out. It's a pretty unusual piece. I've been able pick up a pile of pristine Metheny vinyl for super cheap lately, and have really enjoyed digging into his catalog. Such a wide range of interesting recordings, especially from the ECM days.

my 3.5 yo son blew my mind by singing parts of Chinatown. Turns out my wife had an old CD of Kapput in the car.

I'd say he sounds like a smurf. His voice is really beyond bearable. The music can have its moments though. Like "The laziest river" for example. Very eclectic stuff rooted in the eighties. Reminds me of my student years. Retro but pretty good retro.

the sound of an entire generation of music critics ossifying about half-remembered childhood referents

just playing, ilx!

his actual speaking voice sounds like that so he's not putting it on (he was in front of me at the waldorf cold beer and wine once)

haha

well see what descriptor you can come up with

anyway people who dislike Bejar's voice I don't mean to say you're not welcome itt but I will say you're wasting your time because Bejar is a great singer

a friend of mine once described his voice as a cross between nick cave and kenny everett

I actually like that Mr. TS song but I'm struggling to see much of a connection. That name though, sheesh.

brokenshire (jed_), Saturday, 24 November 2018 19:20 (six months ago) Permalink

here's an interesting anecdote:

Frontman Dan Bejar had largely completed his soft-rock opus before asking Shabason to improvise over the recordings, where his ghostly saxophone lines proved to be the perfect complement to Bejar’s alternately hedonistic and weary narrator, hanging over every story like a heavy cologne.

that's from the review of recent Shabason album, but not sure what the source is? also, it seems, in my mind, more of a trumpet record than a sax record but maybe I'm misremembering
