I never heard of the Last Words before the Whydothingshavetochange blog reviewed this masterpiece of Aussie-Punk (see here). This is good 77 style Punk that sounds a lot like good old Clash. Really diverse and good record and thanks to Whydothingshavetochange for the advice. Bought this for 25 bucks, so good investment.
The new Dinosaur jr. sounds like it should sound like - Dinosaur as usual. This one´s on heavy rotation on my turntable i.e. mp3-player in my car. Best song is Left/right, the last song in the B-side. Relaxed sound with even enough sadness to listen to. This is the strictly to 100,000 pieces limited purple vinyl version. Nice cover art by the way.
Great debut by Boston Punx Cinderblock. Raw tunes, not too fast and with a singer who sounds like Eric Ozenne from Redemption 87. A must. Intense record, get it.
The new Nothing record is OK, although a bit too sweet for my taste. Where Deafheaven for example take the rocky road and make listening to their records an experiment, Nothing take the poppy-sweet side that fits right to the masses. Some might call this a masterpiece, for me its just another record to file under "N". OK if I am in the mood for popmusic. Strictly limited Euro pressing on "orange krush" vinyl.
I remember watching the first TV music broadcast in the early 80´s. Right people, that was before MTV even started. I even remember seeing the Tom Waits video "In the neighbourhood" which is from that point until today my favorite Waits song. Back in the summer vacation I decided that I need it on vinyl so I just ordered it with 30+ years delay. Bonus: I had the option to order the original version, not a German license, which would have been the only way to get it back then. Tom Waits always had great lyrics, so let me close this post with this little poetry gem: "There´s always construction works bothering you ... In the Neighborhood, in the Neighborhood, i-n-t-h-e-n-e-i-g-h-b-o-u-r-h-o-o-d ..."
