Hm, 16 years ago? Make that 300 times at least, I guess!

Pod and the Kim Deal 7"s MattK referred to (as an album) are truly unfuckwithable.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Wednesday, 28 February 2018 01:18 (one year ago) link

It helps that Title TK was stuck in my car CD player for a year before fixing it. I can hum every note.

morning wood truancy (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Wednesday, 28 February 2018 01:20 (one year ago) link

xps That's what I get from songs like "Oh!" and "Iris" and basically the entirety of Pod and don't get at all from anything on Title TK, but it's not you who needs to be sold on the virtues of Pod (it's your #2).

I mean, agree to disagree and whatnot, and I feign a lot of confusion and outrage on this board just for the sake of comedy, but this is a thing I am legit confused by out in the real world.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 28 February 2018 01:22 (one year ago) link

I love Title TK, the production is perfect, layered and weird but distinctly garage-y in the Deal way.

Nothing with "Little Fury" can be called songless

"Dawn: Making an Effort." WOW.

J. Sam, Friday, 2 March 2018 05:44 (one year ago) link

I love this whole album.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 2 March 2018 06:01 (one year ago) link

Thank you for reminding me, to my surprise my local CD store had the physical disc on release date! Got there with 10 minutes to spare, about to hit the car which is one of my few remaining disc players.

startled macropod (MatthewK), Friday, 2 March 2018 06:33 (one year ago) link

The Josephine Wiggs co-writes are bringing the muscle, playing this loud on a decent system now.

startled macropod (MatthewK), Friday, 2 March 2018 07:45 (one year ago) link

which ones did she co-write (besides, i assume, MetaGoth)?

alpine static, Friday, 2 March 2018 07:59 (one year ago) link

and Skinhead #2

startled macropod (MatthewK), Friday, 2 March 2018 08:15 (one year ago) link

I had no idea she was back. delighted about that.

this is the Last Splash lineup jed!

yes!

Bass so heavy.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Friday, 2 March 2018 18:24 (one year ago) link

this is a great record.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Friday, 2 March 2018 18:24 (one year ago) link

who produced this? It's HEAVY.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Saturday, 3 March 2018 00:21 (one year ago) link

Self produced but I think albini is semi involved?

tylerw, Saturday, 3 March 2018 00:26 (one year ago) link

only 3 songs I think? I haven't listened to it yet. but I was thinking about Pod the other day and how heavy the drums are on it. I suppose that's typical Albini production and just how In Utero is recorded etc but he's so good at that

Colonel Poo, Saturday, 3 March 2018 00:29 (one year ago) link

"I need spit/to crush these beetles on my lips" is divine.

Heavy Messages (jed_), Saturday, 3 March 2018 00:50 (one year ago) link

It's crazy how "Archangel's Thunderbird" just sounds like another Breeders song.

J. Sam, Saturday, 3 March 2018 01:24 (one year ago) link

it sounds so WILD and cray though. I'm not sure it does sound like another breeders song. It doesn't to me. I mean obviously, the end product does!

Heavy Messages (jed_), Saturday, 3 March 2018 01:32 (one year ago) link

I'm drunk!

Great album, great listen, a great birthday gift.

Ned Raggett, Saturday, 3 March 2018 04:13 (one year ago) link

Yeah this is seriously so good.

cwkiii, Saturday, 3 March 2018 04:15 (one year ago) link

wait they cover amon duul ii??

I love this album.

Elvis Telecom, Saturday, 3 March 2018 06:35 (one year ago) link

Oooh baby, this is a helluva Breeders album

I played it three times in a row this afternoon, can't get enough. Especially love "Dawn: Making an Effort" which is not really the kind of song I come to the Breeders for but man they pull it off

bunny slopes, Saturday, 3 March 2018 07:59 (one year ago) link

Good Morning!

WAIT IN THE CAR. I'VE GOT BUSINESS.

startled macropod (MatthewK), Saturday, 3 March 2018 09:31 (one year ago) link

MetaGoth is such a Pixies song

alpine static, Saturday, 3 March 2018 21:56 (one year ago) link

I dunno, it slots right in beside “Roi” in my mental Rolodex

startled macropod (MatthewK), Saturday, 3 March 2018 22:37 (one year ago) link

I listened to this album in the car on the way to Cheapo, and they were playing it there too. It's everywhere!

geoffreyess, Sunday, 4 March 2018 07:27 (one year ago) link

"Dawn: Making an Effort" is the only tune on here I like, and I had to listen to this album four times in a row yesterday while my record shop-owning pal tried to "Beta Band it" (his phrase) in his store

He didn't end up selling any and I'm not surprised. I think you've all been listening to a different album than I did. There are zero hooks on this thing.

also, horrid cover art / design. Enough with the 4AD boilerplate already!

For the record, I really liked Title TK (and I love Pod and Last Splash).

Sorry to be the lone voice of dissent here, but this album does absolutely nothing for me

Paul Ponzi, Sunday, 4 March 2018 11:28 (one year ago) link

Not a voice of dissent, but I have mixed feelings about this album, which I dont feel like elaborating here. I definitely think "Metagoth" & the one-two punch of AT & Dawn p much make this album

cwkiii, Tuesday, 6 March 2018 14:21 (one year ago) link

yeah this is really good, remarkably so. i am surprised by how good this is for some reason. don't know what i was expecting.

Roberto Spiralli, Tuesday, 6 March 2018 15:13 (one year ago) link

everyone on this thread is talking about how great this album is, how it rules, how it's really good, but no one is really elaborating on why they think this. what's great about it? MatthewK did a nice job upthread describing why he thinks Title TK is worth listening to (and I agree), but no one seems to have anything interesting to say about this record, which is just confirming my suspicion that this record just isn't interesting

Paul Ponzi, Tuesday, 6 March 2018 15:43 (one year ago) link

in my defence, I don't have anything interesting to say about any music.

Xpost

Apart from “zero hooks” (to which my thoroughly thought through reply would be “check again”), there’s not much you’re offering, either.

willem, Tuesday, 6 March 2018 15:50 (one year ago) link

It's a good album that's not much different from their 2008, 2002, and 1993 albums: spare, gnomic, adept at a certain kind of precision that would make other bands sound amateurish.

morning wood truancy (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 6 March 2018 15:54 (one year ago) link

after one listen, iirc:

it *sounded* awesome
Kim snarls & sneers a lot, always a plus
drums are killer throughout, very solid
good sequencing, kind of back-loaded

Exactly! Well put.

very well put

i will always love rock music even as it continues to be "dead" and irrelevant because at this point in history i don't delude myself that there are great rock revolutions coming, it's about taking joy in how certain musicians play, how combinations of different talents and personal quirks interact when they play together, a certain sound and dynamic.

Sorry, I forgot this was a requirement.

Anyway, I'm stealing jed_'s answer.

cwkiii, Tuesday, 6 March 2018 17:50 (one year ago) link

I filed 600 words on Saturday, so let's see if it's interesting .

Good summer for this record

surm, Saturday, 22 June 2019 15:26 (five months ago) link

I'm in the mood for them to chuck out another album fairly speedily. Fucking love "All Nerve".

I played it yesterday!

xxp This band has a remarkably ugly set of album covers, IMO

Consider the coconut (morrisp), Sunday, 23 June 2019 20:27 (five months ago) link

The covers don’t suit the band’s sound for sure.

Nice video but still getting used to the album version of this as opposed to the first 7" version which was so great.

Hinklepicker, Thursday, 31 October 2019 18:28 (one month ago) link

They don't seem radically different?

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Thursday, 31 October 2019 19:32 (one month ago) link

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=NtcXD3cefuA I mean obviously it's the same song but the original version seems more sure of itself to my ears but maybe that's just the one 'heard it first must be best' thing going on
