So to commemorate the creation of this fine little subforum, I thought I would adopt a new format, namely that of posting a thread for a particular album (or mix). This way I can keep better track of what the hell I've already posted... oh, yeah, and we can discuss the album if we were so inclined.
To start this off, I thought I would post one of the greatest albums of all time and beyond. Yeah, forget beating around the bush, here is Mother Of All Saints as recorded by the enigmatic Thinking Fellers Union Local 282. You might have heard a song or two from this band (and of course loved them) as I kind of peppered their brilliance to mixtape soufflés of old.
But listener be warned, this is not your typical brilliant album. Sure, it's brimming with wacked out creativity but tracks herein will rarely resemble each other beyond voices, guitar tones, and the like. This album is too insane to be progressive and too progressive to be insane. While there are undoubtably moments of sonic bombardment that will have gritting your teeth and nauseous, they merge to meadows of psychedelic chillaxness or into more structured addicted hooks. This album is filled with sonic antics, so be aware that the musicians are laughing with you at all times (for instance "Tuning Notes" their laughing at their own wackiness).
My particular favorite songs are: Catcher, Hornet's Heart, Star Trek, Shuddering Big Butter, Cistern, and El Cerrito.
Well, I did get a chance to listen to some of it. I can't say I hate it, but I can't say I like it yet either. Probably need some subsequent listenings. Incidentally, Tuning Notes sounds like me trying to play an instrument.

"For the Fatherland?" "Risking life?" No... Why...? Because we can only drink good tea while we're living. Everybody, let's fight so we don't die.

Yeah, I do suppose this album kind of rests upon the assumption that you know of and like Captain Beefheart's music, particular Trout Mask Replica. A lot of people don't. Of course they aren't wrong or anything. I don't believe there is any obligation to liking any music, also this album is pretty weird.
