Title: Colonel_Mexico likes weird music
Post by: colonel_mexico on February 07, 2014, 02:59:03 AM
I'm going to try this since I enjoy weird music, here are a few choice songs I enjoy and they are strange...please feel free to respond with even more insanity, could be fun!  Also, I tend to lean toward heavier stuff, but please don't let that be a limitation in anyway

Listened to Glassjaw, a strange clip with a rather abrupt music end. I will work my way down the list. My first thought on reading your thread title was Slint. Here is one of the tracks off their album Spiderland:

breadcrumb trails (http://youtu.be/29MBGwzEhMc)

Back to listening

Finished listening to the tracks in your first post. I did not know any of the bands but they reminded me lots of music I was into in the late 80s and early 90s. There is one compilation album called Crack in the Sun or Fade in the Shade; which had a lot of similar tracks. I will see if I can find it online. Found it:

Link (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL518985BE9A2D1F5F)

Heading to bed now. I will skim through the tracks to pick out the better ones, if you would like.

Hey Dave thanks for the recommend, love that tune and pretty much exactly what I love about strange music.  Might have to browse some of Slint's other work if I can find any.

Gone through your first post Col. and am very impressed with the lyrics and sounds. So much to study here, so much catharsis. Rookie and World So Cold are the ones I spent the most time with, but then you've got Artist In The Ambulance there on the tail end and it's premise is unique and will stay with me the longest. I'll be back around for the next post. Great idea for a thread!

Listened to the next post and am always impressed with a Cake song. Love that rendition of Malaguena salerosa and the tempo changes in L'Via L'Viaquez. Challenging and original music all the way around.


Martin, I remember Foetus, Happy Flowers and Throbbing Gristle!  (impossible to forget actually :D )

Post by: Sandy on February 11, 2014, 11:52:41 PM
I went through your next two installments and found great stuff. I think I liked the sound of Gunman's chorus the most:

It don't matter, don't try to explain,
You're just another dog to be trained,
Choke chained.
You're gonna end up under tooth and nail.
If you catch a tiger by the tail,
Don't fail.


The surprise opening and later whispering in Cut Your Ribbon are noteworthy and I liked that I sort of knew Careless Whisper and that Seether turned it upside down. My two favorite songs are Holding on For Life and Blind Pilots (that video completely freaks me out though. :) )

Thank you for listening Sandy, yeah the Sparta song is great and the album is fun too, I wish they had stayed like that as they progressed, but sadly their debut was the only one I liked.  I enjoy playing Careless Whisper on the jukebox.  Again thanks for listening.

The Alternative Tentacles record label (started by Jello Biafra, former lead singer of the Dead Kennedy's) has a podcast (Alternative Tentacles Batcast) that is released occasionally. The most recent one featured a band called Ultra Bide, I thought you might be interested Colonel. This song has a bit of a feel of the early/mid 1990's North Caroline sound mixed in.

Mushi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKZN-m6aEv4)

Some other stuff.

The Nation of Ulysses - Shakedown
Shakedown (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYzoSFFnVFc)

Melvins - Charmicarmicat

One of the bands I remember from the North Caroline sound is Sex Police, here is the track Hurricane

Earlier I mentioned the album Crack in the Sun or Fade in the Shade. Here are a few of my favourites.

Guttersnipes - Pyromania
Pyromania (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_naCP1l8Zc&list=PL518985BE9A2D1F5F)

Head Ache - Stanley (can you spot where the vocal clip comes from?)

Ultra Bide- Not bad, I love how it takes a bunch of different directions, and around the 4 and half minute part sounds a lot like At The Drive In, which I love, so was pretty cool tune.  Not sure if i was entirely in love with it, but enjoyed the heaviness of it.

The Nation of Ulysses- Yeah this I dig!  Will have to explore more, thanks for this one.  In the album cover pic he looks like a preppy thinner Henry Rollins lol.

Melvins- Classic!  Can't go wrong with them, did you know Shirley Temple's daughter played in the band for a time?  Interesting side note.

Sex Police- A little too weird/poppy for me, though the bass player was jamming some Flea like riffs there that were pretty cool.  I also loved the two horn players, both solid solos.  Though I wonder why the drummer was dressed as Gilligan lol  I imagine you probably like the Talking Heads if you like these guys? 

Guttersnipes- Oh yeah sort of Rancid-ish with cool bridges.  Digging this.

Head Ache- Stanley isn't bad at all, tough going punk, like this.  I'm guessing it's Andrew Dice Clay, but have no idea the film or show the quote is from. 

Nursery Crimes- Ah yeah love that intro guitar riff!  Another jam that is right up my alley.

Thanks for these Davey, I'm going to definitely find that Nation of Ulysses and Crack in the Sun or Fade in the Shade albums, these I would like to be able to give a spin while I'm cruising.

Tonight for a window of about 4 hours I was afraid for my brother who was working with the Master At Arms/Security Forces at Norfolk Naval Station last night, there was a shooting and a sailor was killed.  My brother was there, but he is safe and I was thinking of all the other troops who still serve and are out there tonight.  A song from my time and to the fallen sailor my thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Colonel, Enjoying your string music at the moment (Tool track)

Oldkid, I had not heard that track, but I had heard a different one of theirs. Highway to Hell with Steve Vai

2Cellos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfGggAGITwg)

Colonel, if you like string music and strange music check out Dirty Three:

OldKid that was awesome!  Shredding cellos I love that, they were destroying their bows AC/DC would be proud!  That's tough stuff right there, loved it!

The Einsturzende was alright a little to industrial/techno for me, but I like a few the changes, very Tool-ish.

Love the 2nd 2 Cellos tune a lot, especially with Steve Vai!  The work he and Ry Cooder did on the film CROSSROADS is one of the main reasons that movie is in my top 100.

Never heard of the Dirty 3, I love stuff like this.  The first song is perfect for days like yesterday, music to get lost to.  Love Nick Cave and he's excellent in this.  Right at the 5 min mark it really gets tough and closes with a flourish.

The 2nd tune is pretty cool, started off with this Russian vibe and then closed with like a latin flavor, interesting.  I like the Nick Cave one a little more, but this one is cool.

Horse is perfectly named for this jam, it's got that riding feel to it.  One of those tunes I'd like to give a spin while I'm driving a long distance, that feeling of being in the middle of nowhere, trying to get somewhere but not that fast. 

Thanks for these songs guys, really cool bands all around.

I wanted to learn how to jam to this music, so I told everyone around me that I was unavailable, put on my headphones and turned up the sound. These are the notes I took while listening. Did I miss the point of jammin, by taking notes? :)

Guernica

This is visceral - the first three notes and then the fourth obliterated by the bass and drums... Oh, he can't help, but would sacrifice anything if it would make a difference... Yes, that's exactly how a toy feels. Back and forth between barren and "raging against the dying of the light." Then Bigger raging! More rage please... I get it now.

Don't Tell And We Won't Ask

Half way through and I'm crying. I can feel their pain I guess, or maybe they know how to reach mine, digging in with their thrashing guitars, thrashing voices and attacking the drums (makes me think of my step-brother, who played like that). Imploring for humanity by ripping away all excuses. Reverse psychology pounded into my brain, which changes my level of awareness, for keeps.

The Sky Is Fallin'

How do they make the guitars do that? They're sending the sound through the amplifiers all hammered out and shredded. And then, a few beautifully voiced notes on "close your eyes...", high and clear and at complete odds with the music. This songs fill me with such hope. Strange how just that glimmer is all it takes.


Impressive music colonel_mexico, much more than meets the uninitiated eye.

Coheed and Cambria sure have a distinctive sound. The beginning of Gravity's Union is pretty spectacular with it's distortion and then that very dry vocal cutting through the noise. I keep starting it over to hear it. I'm pretty enamored with Dark Side Of Me. Its lament lingers.

Colonel, have you read the Amory Wars comic books?

Glad you liked those Sandy, that album I've had spinning over and over in the car.  I really enjoyed this one, their last few haven't been too exciting.  I have not read any of the Amory Wars comics, that's my brother's territory (he's the one who introduced me to C&C).  I am curious as to the story though, from the songs sounds like there is something quite interesting there.  Thanks for listening.

Post by: Sandy on October 06, 2014, 12:16:52 PM
I was thinking the same thing, that the story must be fascinating. I think it's time for me to listen to the whole album. Glad to know there are more songs to enjoy from it.

Reporting back on Coheed and Cambria’s

The Afterman: Descension
(http://i61.tinypic.com/2jff85t.jpg)

With much speculation and condensing and editing way down, here we go… (Bear with me!)


The Story of Sirius and Meri

Sirius, the Afterman, the Cosmonaut, finding himself adrift in “The Keywork,” an energy source for all the planets, is brutally buffeted by dead souls who are the source of that energy. Each soul carries the personality of who they were in life and 3 evil ones overtake Sirius’ body in turn. Evagria, the Faithful, a selfless soul, comes in to protect Sirius from the onslaught and begins to heal his wounds. While in her control, Sirius contemplates on his own selfishness and regrets how he neglected his wife, because of his ambitions to explore “The Keywork.” And here the story begins…


Pretelethal: All is quiet in the protective care of Evagria, but her energy begins to wane and the other entities gain power again. Sirius fears all is lost, "I will retreat, no sin confessed… Who will repair this broken heart?"


Key Entity Extraction V: Sentry the Defiant: But wait! A new entity arrives to take up the fight. Sentry, a soldier who was killed for standing up to his superior officer’s secret evil plans (who is also one of the souls attacking Sirius), takes control of Sirius and in doing so reveals his own story. “And suggestion, suggests that I'm someone you should not respect… Hangman hooded, softly swinging. Don't close the coffin yet…” Sentry is in a continual fight with this other entity and Sirius realizes that in order for Sentry to move on, he needs to let go of his horrible past. Sentry, convinced, rises to a higher plane with Evagria and Sirius. Then he sends Sirius back to his ship, but it has been destroyed so his computer system, called All Mother, which operates inside his space suit, guides him to a space station. Thinking he has only been gone a week, All Mother sets him straight, “Approximate calculation, 547 days.”


The Hard Sell: This song could be on two levels. Sirius coming back, knowing the bleak after world that’s in store for those that hold onto hate, “And too many of you fighting over nothing” and the author, Claudio Sanchez, lamenting the loss of creativity of his two previous albums, “Oh, there's never enough cool for everyone and before you know it you're selling out to be in.” Sirius, who everyone thought had perished, is lauded a hero.

 
Number City: After an awards ceremony, Sirius and Meri are in a devastating car crash where they are both ejected. Sirius is in serious condition, but his wife is much worse. Her heart stopping-- “Release my heart if you, honey, do not let me go.” Then CPR “1, 2, 3, 4, 5…” His heart breaking—“And oh, if you wanted to see, go on and tear it out of me... Oh, this is love from a gurney.”


Gravity's Union: (Can’t get enough of that crunchy distortion at the beginning!) Reliving the crash, “I flew head first into the light. Weightless, crisscrossing, precise. In a dream or was it life?” Anguish over the cause of his crashing, “This is my love into a ten ton truck.” He just found out that Meri has been in a relationship with someone and is pregnant and then he lost control of the car. Regret over his treatment of her, before his mission, “And I was wrong to let you go. I accept my mistake, but you will never know.” Pleading, “Baby, please remember the better me.” Despair, “Caged, locked in perpetual motion, carving our wounds wide open,” Medical procedures… These are some of the best lyrics in the album:

Every man has a point
Where he breaks or conjoins
Among pressure that floods to complicate
Matters close to the heart
Will define who we are
Do we love? Do we hate?



Away We Go: The music is amazing here. It starts out where Meri’s life is fading away and as it does, she’s transported back to a memory of her and Sirius meeting at the end of a dock on the Jersey Shore, where they embrace.

Believe me, take my word, I'll never break your heart
And away we go
My little Jersey girl

If we could escape this innocence
Trapped between the fears and the words we kept
We'll live out our later years



Iron Fist: As Sirius leaves the hospital, his drive home is full of profound regret for his ambition and temper. Here his anger is directed squarely at himself.
 
The wish you plead and the things you sought
We all think, we all thought
The things I've done, and the world I've seen
Don't measure up to my queen

God damn this cursed iron fist
When I lose control
Oh no
Oh girl, this is what I've become



Dark Side of Me:(Still my favorite!) Still thinking on his sorry state, he is confronted with Meri’s lover who wishes he had never returned or never expected her to endure all he put her through. Sirius realizes the man is right.

In those discouraging days
I always missed the mark
When we were comfort and close
I would neglect to keep

I gave my everything
For all the wrong things
In this cold reality I made
This selfish war machine


Even knowing what he’s done, he still cannot let go.

Oh, this has become hell
How can I share this life
With someone else?
I promise you
There is no weight that can bury us
Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt


So Sirius sets out to find Meri, no matter the risk. All Mother asks the greatest of all questions, “You fought to withdraw from a location which has incited severe quantifiable pain and nearly terminated the mission, nearly terminated your life, yet you desire to set a course back to it. I’m not equipped to comprehend human rationale. Sirius, is this what love is?”  His answer, “Yes.”


2’s My Favorite 1: (Love the quiet music box ending to this song.) I’m going to quote startstop here, a commenter on the comic book, because he says it so well, “He may not make it back home alive, but after everything that has happened, he does not care. His only desire, his prime mission, is to return to The Keywork to find Meri. He will help her ascend, as he did with Sentry, or he will die trying."
 
Oh this is her
No regrets
I embrace your defense
Took the best
You were my wish
I admit that I will never feel alone
Once I call, oh, you home


What an ending!

About the music: As much or more so than the lyrics, the music pushes the story forward and the power and myriad of emotions wash over me. :) It’s that good. The only song that seems to have conflicting moods with the story, is Number City and even that one hits a lot of perfect points. I wonder if the disconnect is intentional, like what shock might feel like. I didn’t look at any of the musical videos, because I think they would have only confused me more!

Such a fantastic experience! Thanks for sharing this music, colonel_mexico. :)

Sandy thanks for this!  I appreciate the notes on the story as I am completely unfamiliar with it, but as I've listened to the album so many times I had a very good idea of what it was about.  Particularly songs like Iron Fist and Dark Side of Me.  The other parts of the story I was completely unfamiliar with and I can see how Number City could be confusing, the songs whole tone doesn't speak to the gravity of the words.  Shock is a great conjecture though.  I think I'm still sticking with Gravity's Union as my favorite, but Dark Side Of Me is a close, close second.  Again thanks for this wonderful review and notes of the story, I think a journey of my own is in order to find this comic. 
Title: Re: Colonel_Mexico likes weird music
Post by: Sandy on October 08, 2014, 05:15:58 PM
Ha! Well, Gravity's Union is my close, close second, so it just goes to show they are two very remarkable songs. :) I too now want to find the comic book that goes with the album! I want to see it all visually and know how close it comes to what I envisioned through the music.

Those guys just can't keep from working together!

Omar Rodríguez-Rochester to Cedric Bixler-ZavaJane: "I've a strange feeling with regard to you. As if I had a string, somewhere under my left ribs. Tightly knotted to a similar string in you. And if you were to leave, I'm afraid that cord of communion would snap. And I have a notion that I'd take to bleeding inwardly."

They're inextricably linked! :D


Mellowing with age, or just taking a quieter turn this go around? They're versatile. Ride Like the Devil's Son, especially the A capella part, reminds me of early 80's rock. Are they going retro?

Ha Sandy nice post!  Yes Ced and Omar are linked and that cord of communion has been enjoyable, strange, awkward and a lot of weird fun.  I love that they feel so retro and I'm glad that they are walking this road!

Since I can't stop thinking about these songs, if I write something, I might process the reasons why. Nothing More doesn't pull any punches, but calls out anything, everything. In a life of good behavior and expectations of calmness, sometimes I clamor for the right to do the same. The songs challenge me and unsettle me, but it's good therapy. :)

Love these lines, so much:

Naked we come, naked we leave
Fools we are, to hold tightly
We are the jail, we are the key
We are free, we are free
This is the time that we let it go
This is the pain we are forced to know
Singing the song that's inside us all
If we just open our eyes



Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for listening Sandy, I'm pleasantly surprised you enjoyed these.  Been listening to this album whilst at the gym in the mornings.
Title: Re: Colonel_Mexico likes weird music
Post by: Sandy on May 28, 2015, 01:13:58 AM
Got a chance to go through the album!

First, I have to say that Jonny Hawkins has pipes! I don't know how he keeps his voice, with all he puts it through.  Oh! He just went into falsetto in God Went North at "I'll hold you 'til you're free." wow. Oh, and the ending. :'(

Not surprisingly, these are my favorite 3:

This Is The Time (Ballast) - I find this song to be so hopeful, but it takes some excruciating turns to get there.

Here's To The Heartache - It's a companion song to Bless The Broken Road. I like the harmony on "Here's to the heartache." It's a powerful message of endurance, "Fall to my knees and you will see, with time comes grace."

I'll Be Okay - All the lyrics are terrific, but this line is the best advice ever! "I can forgive and be forgiven, by learning to heal with a heart wide open."

It looks like all three are ultimately about hope!

I'm going back and forth between Sex & Lies and Take A Bullet, because I'm having a hard time figuring out which one has more rage. It's a toss up. :D

"Well let's go and find the edge." :) Yes, this album is exploratory!

Amazing album, Col.! Thanks!
Title: Re: Colonel_Mexico likes weird music
Post by: colonel_mexico on May 28, 2015, 08:04:17 AM
You picked all my favorite songs!  I do enjoy heavy stuff and this band has a pretty good mix of heavy riffs.  Hawkins sings a little like Claudio from C&C (Afterman was a fun album!).  Mr. MTV is an interesting tune and I liked the commentary, all too true.  Jenny though is probably my favorite, a song about selfishness. 

There are some really great lines, "All the tears that led to this place...it's been a long way."  I can totally see that being a companion piece to BTBR.  "With time comes grace," yes completely.

So cool that you went through this one, thanks for the review Sandy.  Really happy you enjoyed this one! :)

Blanck Mass- Really cool trance sounding jam, I liked the kazoo-lyrics, my kind of weird lol. 

Nisennenmondai- The intro reminds me of Tool's Third Eye, just a little bit.  The drummer is sick!  The guitar player sounds like she's playing the Nyan cat melody.  Drummer really goes off at the end of the 6 min mark, very cool stuff.

A Place to Bury Strangers- Like a grindcore Pixies or Talking Heads or something.  I'm very curious as to the script, has to be better then JOHN WICK right?  Someone kills a guys dog and he becomes the lead singer of Depeche Mode.

Amen Dunes- My favorite song of the bunch, haunting and dark, but strangely uplifting.  This is probably more Frank Black then the last one. 

Thanks for the tunes Phil, very cool, always love hearin new things.

A story of 3 lost souls who heavy hearted and searching have begun a journey and if my feeble words can't find the way to shed light on this tale of love and woe then let these tunes begin.

Davey the stranger trying to find the other half his nightmare, the one whose sweet sleep stole everything from him.  He drives this desert and sees majesty, even as foreign devils give him the stare.  Knives aren't long enough to strike the peace into the hearts of these men, but with a gun and a nod these halls of Valhalla have no heroes, just a place to stack gold and forget the world.  This will have to do.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khdPVdaGNcQ

Charlie hasn't been called Charlotte since she was a girl, but she has been called many other things.  Dreams of bigger and better with the Spanish flavor weren't exactly painted what the red of so many art deco savants had in mind, but she thrives.  She tries to see past tears that aren't coming and knows that today isn't where she should be, otherwise that silver lined hole in her heart would have some soul to it.  The rhythm are all out of place and she can't even tap her foot to seem interested, even as the slick one sidles up for a kiss that makes her sick.  She takes it with an air of depravity that is so cool.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKxuiw3iMBE

The lunatics are on the grass, Sid Barret isn't a cousin, but saint James is a friend.  "Let this course through my veins and help Chamaco and I finish the job."  Evil isn't a package, but it serves in disguises and even seems good in the smiles of spies and these deserters of love.  But even saint James in all his simple minded wisdom feels.  He misses the mother's touch, but he serves without sermons and his work brings fears even the liars can't fathom.  Chamaco in his defiant silence couldn't make his friend understand, but saint James is his best amigo and the only sound he cares to hear comes from the gun he uses to preach.  How can any kind of goodness come from this darkness?  Yet they travel on.

Cool wind to the face, 'Ah yes I know this place.'  Davey is home, the havoc he has come to love, this could be his kingdom.  The Big Sky in neon lights hanging western saloon style, this place isn't old, it's doomed.  Plenty of friends-cum-enemies, let these pleasantries be nothing more then job opportunities.  "Who owns this place?"  Barkeep isn't old, but barrel chested from the womb, he's meant to be a tattoo in this world, stained and painted, "Sad Girl," a smirk for a stupid question, "No what the f- you want."  Beer never eases fears as easily as whiskey, but it sure is a good place for warm tears, let's see her, this Sad Girl, she just might rock my world."

And in this in-between world, patterned after all it's users, saint James and Chamaco, two misnamed Sheriffs, but definitely not losers join the bread line.  "Sad Girl is never sad, I wonder why they call her that?"  Chamaco shudders and saint James nods knowing the feeling all too well, hell has no covers to keep that one in bed.  But rent has to be paid, it costs to stay ahead of the game and saint James plays for days, the end of days.  "Chamaco and his tequila, Bill keep em coming," and barrel chest pours without acknowledging the insult, his mother called him George, the bar Dawg, but this one is trouble.  The Big Sky takes all comers and many leave dreamers in permanent stasis, oh this wasteland has places that smells like it tastes.  A place to forget, those places to remember aren't for this crowd, it's an occupational boundary, the twilight zone for mercenaries and pigeons mistaken for canaries.  Sales are good though especially when Sad Girl's list is full and the market is bull. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hj8noHeb8no

Frank is always the boss, even when big Sis says no, because their mom said so.  Childish as ever, it's what's kept her clever and far from the cleaver, the meat retrievers always near.  Today there are many and she smiles at her brother, the blood suits not tied tight enough, she is the party girl that you don't want to get caught with the lights out.  She's not the type to shout, especially when the sport is about to begin, these drinks and special effects of the mind are the best you can find this side of chemistry.  She's not sad, she's insatiable until she's had enough.  Limits like this have no need for rhythm, they are Gucci glasses, French tipped floozy with the right amount of boozy and smoky eyelash smiles that quiver the inner parts of loin and liver.  Sickness or pleasure, does it matter when you have this kind of weather.  Sad Girl she is, but happy today for all the smiling faces, the music will take her through her usual paces and these will be places most want to go if only their souls hadn't said no.

It's peaceful, but to her war is raging and nothing inside this happy little cage is worth arming herself.  She whispers to the wind as loud as a scream and even then it's too quiet for the pin to drop.  There is the thought of hope, but that is so fleeting it's like a slippery slope of how far down can this really go?  But Charlie is too afraid of that warm rapture of death that would come so quick when her boyfriend(s?) leaves his packing slip on the desk next to that picture.  A tincture of blood and that sweet warm brandy leaves her ready for whatever treasure this man comes to gather with whispers that make no sense, even in 7th grade crush notebook.  If only she could find that look again, that one warm pleasure that isn't about sin, but is more than anything explainable in her small mind, but her big soul could swallow hole.  The sunset is beautiful, she can only almost see that handsome sweat that comes with the work of a smile that cares and will stare forever.  If only he would dare, but then knights don't come as would be sweet talking slow dancers, these Astaires move with carelessness that is supposed to be forgiven because she prays a penury rosary.   Looking at the phone, maybe a letter?  Holding out for that far off home, hmmm, maybe it's better to wish for the stone that is cold, then the one that grows old.  If only....

Enigmatic, yet with discernible fragments. Much of it like a word on the tip of the tongue, known, but intangible.

I love it. Thanks for creating this amalgam poetry, Col.


Some of my favorite lines:

he's meant to be a tattoo in this world, stained and painted

There is the thought of hope, but that is so fleeting it's like a slippery slope of how far down can this really go?

but then knights don't come as would be sweet talking slow dancers, these Astaires move with carelessness...

Colonel just listening to Probot's Big Sky, love the deep strength of the sound. Using so few instruments gives the sound a less loud tone without losing the power. Possibly also a reflection of the quality of the production. By less loud, it is about the amount of noise coming at you, so for a loud band I am talking about the wall of guitar noise of bands like Cosmic Psychos (ok it was more than just a wall of guitar noise, but I hope you get what I mean) which with only a few instruments gives a very loud tone to their music.

Not sure what to make of Kreayshawn, the tune was catchy, but ... not sure... I did like it ... its like trying to scratch an itch that you can not find.

Thank you for the 3 play

@Sandy- thank you so much for your comments and for reading.  This story is an amalgamation of things I've wanted to write, but never have really put together, but it also stems from a dream I had in the past.  The music is meant to be an aural presentation of the inspiration, of the things that tap into my poetry/writing well and causes the spill of words and story you find here.  There are some hidden meanings, the stone that grows cold is obviously the tombstone, and the one that grows old is the stone that one would find as a precious gem usually worn on a ring on the left hand :)

@Davey- Totally!  The whole album was very well produced (leave it to Dave Grohl to bring us something heavy like this and make it a technical feat filled with walls of noise that are powerful without being screamo nonsense or speed-power chord heavy).  I'm glad you enjoyed that one.  Kreayshawn is meant to be catchy, while being disturbing.  It's part of the symbol of the character I was writing about, a beautiful, attractive woman who embodies the femme fatale, with a heavy emphasis on fatale.  Very grateful for the comments and that you enjoyed the tunes, thank you.

Ah, yes, a ring. Thank you. I was thinking along the lines of a heart of stone, one that has grown weary/old. Something like,

You've got this heart of stone
I'm never breaking through
Feels like a dead end road

I'm not asking you to tell me, because mystery is always good, but since I'm spatially oriented, I'm trying to figure this out geographically. I know it's definitely not in China, but the term foreign devils made me smile! Big Sky Country is Montana, but this isn't Montana. :) There's a Big Sky ranch in Royse City, TX, but that's not the desert, nor is Cuba. The Chihuahuan desert in both West Texas and Mexico is an option and I wonder if Davey has gone south of the border where he is a foreigner and where saint James and Chamaco reside, but Sad Girl needs access to a city, so maybe they're near El Paso. As for Charlie, she's on the West Coast. :)

Am I in spitting distance?

From across the glow of this harem, that she's been sharing for far too long there he was, an icy stare that warmed her soul with the force only heaven could send across this universe.  Her doom was sealed as soon as he entered her room and that chill burned to ache that wrapped her legs into a torrent that is all pain in pure pleasure.  Sure its the treasure she chose to bury forever, but now is never and his hands are the member that keep pace to a rhythm that has made everything sane incredibly strange and perfectly within the realm of Sunday afternoon derelicts, praising God with that poison kiss, it may have been the apple that cast us out, but here is something deeper then Shakespeare,
"Off with that girdle, like heaven’s Zone glistering,
But a far fairer world encompassing.
Unpin that spangled breastplate which you wear,
That th’eyes of busy fools may be stopped there.
Unlace yourself, for that harmonious chime,
Tells me from you, that now it is bed time."

Oh that's the one, John Donne, now it's all come undone and they both in this rapture have captured something worse then sin.  Its the purest of love and ecstasy and this can only end in tragedy, but doesn't it feel good this never ending depth, both souls plunging so deep angels must have wept, together they seek what's left of all that's good in this world. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRv4VQra2kc


And just as quickly as it had begun the dream was asleep, and here was stark reality, the quiet banality before the storm that would quash the tranquility of his world.  Davey wasn't crazy, until the hazy, dusky eyes that had sealed his fate, and then his date with the devil and her quest that would make him the knight in dusty jeans, that he could trade in for clean fortunes that would free him and his heart from their small parts.  But the quest was now, here was saint James, not a clown, but funny enough to tear down the scariest of sounds with just the round smile he gives, death is his shrift, and as Davey shifts into the dusty lane a car creeps up behind, and Chamaco in the back seat seems suddenly insane.  Snap, screech, chink, he's ready these men won't get away without some steady lead from a hand that speaks for this silent man.  Pedal to the metal, there is no screech of sand between rubber, but the band of brothers have to fight and race to win this night and reach that place which is goal to free all their souls.  saint James himself ready for the grind, there will be no one left behind, in front or in the wind in the road, this approach won't be easy and stealing from this lot is answered with the shout of gunshot. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Ton0a230_s


Frank knew something had changed, she was not the same, that loving feeling of pain had changed to hate.  He could take the disgusted diffidence, he couldn't take the silent insolence he felt from those eyes who were always on fire, but this conflagration was at full force and he felt fear.  But worse was his arrogance and pride, the falls of man were all the sand he had left in this land he claimed as his along with the sis that ruled with a poison hidden hand.  Even the violent, gentle rapping by hand and sweet nothing of finger to throat could choke any sweet sounds out of his beautiful little mouse, when had she become so strong that even the woman of the house would know something was now wrong.  He would find out who and why, he would move heaven and sky to quench this fire, this woman was his desire and no one would ever tell him otherwise, so as quickly as he came he left and she bent, broken in her quiet shame.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vg_VLi79Q9A

But there was no shame here, only fear because of what she holds so dear is in danger, from himself, from the world and wind itself, this fate that is now at hand.  She knows that her heart's hate has brought a newborn strength, but freeing herself from this old world may be the rage and that destroys all the characters in this play.  Oh where should she take stage, how long should she wait, where is he?  Will he come back for me?

Colonel! All hell broke loose! I'm caught unprepared and am not sure I'm ready for the answers to all the questions I have. I feel like I should ride it out, letting it unfold, or I should say shatter, in front of me.

While I'm trying to regain equilibrium, I'll say that John Donne's poem is surprising! Hadn't read that before!  And, that Sally's Song is beautiful and oh so sad. Each song puts me deeper into your lines. Really powerful combinations.

Okay, gotta go shake this off...

@philip928- Midori- Hits you with a sledgehammer and never lets up, I like the changes and piano parts, mellowness in the insanity
Chelsea Wolfe- Has that Portishead-ish sound that I really like, love the heaviness of it, like being on a conveyor belt being taken into the machine, assimilate me!

@Sandy- it is falling apart, I don't know what to say, this has been interesting little run, but as with all my little works nothing much great, but fun nonetheless, thanks so much for following along :)

I was reeling when posting last night, so I didn't know what to say either :) and I forgot to mention that Dig/"He would find out who and why, he would move heaven and sky to quench this fire," feels like the mad descent from the song it made me think of, Friendly Fire. Talk about a "slippery slope" of where rage can take someone.

My questions are about the characters, so when the dust settles, I hope I can ask them. Some are getting answered along the way, so I'm trying to be good and patient. :)

Both songs are so compelling with their self imposed restraint, while trying to communicate, but then can't hold back their bursts of pent up emotion.

Re: Holding out for a Hero.
The original is a song of hope. This version is a song of pain and desolation at the beginning, then slowly building to a position of hope, then on to determination. This creates a very different world view, one that is a story beyond just the words of the song.

But first, EL P's song. The line that most stands out is, "So how dare you assume that I'll sleep when you're dead." Biting, but crucial in it's message, both in 1st person and 2nd. You probably already know about the The Mars Volta guys help on the album, but Ikey Owens is in this song somewhere!

APC,
They have a woman guitarist! cool! All three songs confront me in a different way - faith, resignation, detachment... The words and music both nail down the coffin and urge me to pry them out! Strange.

Challenging, yet just the way I'd want it to be. :)

Gundali- Reminds me a little of the operatic style of King Diamond, though without the high pitched voice lol.

Prelude to the Oracle- Yep Death Metal alright.  For me I appreciate a certain degree of loud and toughness, but this type of metal is a little over that boundary.  It's weird because I appreciate yelling, but more in the prog-rock vein than the frightening gruffness of death metal. Though the guitar parts in this are fantastic, the solo is solid.

Vertigo Crab- When I listen to things I usually always compare it to something else and while it's not exactly alike reminded me of The Cooper Temple Clause, I should post something from them.  I dig the groove, I could do my immense amounts of writing to this stuff.

Dalston Shroud- The quiet screaming parts are interesting, like something from The Crow soundtrack, buckets of bullets with strobe lights and casual death in a comic book world. Interesting.

Poser- I was just commenting the other day about convergence culture and certainly a lot here.  It's like a death metal version of the song Institutionalized by Suicidal Tendencies. The guitar parts are really tough, dig that, but it looks like a hip hop video lol.  That skater guy does a couple of cool tricks and that Gibson sunburst guitar is classic.

Vanilla Shake- Ah, here's the hip hop style beatdown that is tough and very cool, all while saying F-you.  These guys should keep doing this.

A real early 90s sound, it just takes me back to pub music from those days. Thanks.

2 Reasons for putting this under 'weird'
1. The 2nd lyric is terrible to the point where you have to ignore it to enjoy the song at all
2. There seems to be no sure way to end the song so the band layers in a mash-up of styles


This next one is weird because you might recognize a part of it from a great movie trailer campaign back in 2007, but few people have heard the full song

Dude awesome!  Love both these tunes, I like the lyrics from Guster!  Going to have to explore these both, will find these albums and explore, thanks for posting these!

Guster- The soothing toughness of the guitar is awesome, fast while being comforting and sort of frightening.  This is the weirdness I live for, especially the fast acoustic riffs.  The ending is kind of the way The Mars Volta ends/combines songs, those guys are interesting because they would say their albums were meant to be listened to/read like a film.  Think they got their name from a Fellini film, I'm not sure if I'm remembering that correctly.  Anyway, yeah this is going into my personal playlist.

The Servant- He sounds a little like Thom York and the song is sort of Radiohead-ish, but the guitar parts are that alternative glory I really love.  Yeah really dig this tune.

Great. Along similar lines, how well do you know V.A.S.T.? (Stands for Video Audio Sensory Theater)
Here is their biggest hit, the song most people know them from.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8S_R13jV11Q


However, their first two releases have a number of good tracks worth seeking out. I recommend starting with...
"I'm Dying"
"Here"
"The Last One Alive"
"Pretty When You Cry"
"Land of Shame"
"Song Without a Name"

I've heard that VAST song from somewhere before, but can't put my finger on it.  This is very cool, I'll be giving some of those a spin.

A song for Sandy, I haven't seen the movie and the context of this song isn't exactly the same, but for whatever reason this popped into my head

Don't Speak (https://youtu.be/TR3Vdo5etCQ#no)

Oh, Col. it's a perfectly chosen song. Therapeutic on many of levels.

The little boy I was taking care of didn't know English and even though he was picking up the language quickly, much of our communication wasn't spoken. The last long night, holding him and trying to quiet his tears, instead of "hush, hush, darlin'" it was "shhh, it's going to be okay." Similar feeling as the song, because it's not nearly enough, but I'm not sure any words would have helped.

It's a memory I had tried to bury, unsuccessfully, but with processing and writing about the movie and this song, I'm allowing myself to look at it and find peace. Thank you so much for sharing this.

The bass line in "Don't Speak" holds the whole freakin' thing together. Whenever that song comes up, I always mention the bass line.

Alright, here's my journey so far with this song. :)

1st time through: in the group listening booth. Visually I wasn't sure what I was seeing, but the sounds and words were not to be taken lightly, so I scrambled to find the lyrics, and right from the tag at the beginning, I knew this was no ordinary song. At that point I said (repeating myself, because you've already heard this part. :) ),

"any song that has these lines is a good one."

My soul was filled with crystal light
Lavender ribbons of rain sang
Ridding my heart of mortal fright


Corny movies make me reminisce. They break me down easy on this generic love s*** "haha! There's a lot here to look at and think on."

"Her verbiage is strange and wonderful. I'm going to keep this one so I can study it, thanks!"

2nd time through: cooking dinner. As soon as the chorus hit, with Sierra's beautiful voice,

In a dream my father came to me
And made me swear that I'd keep
What's sacred to me
And if I get the choice to live in his name
I'll pray my way through the rain
Singing oh happy day


it overwhelmed me and I broke down and cried. (tmi territory ahead!) I had read that the sisters had conflicted feelings about their father, because of his good points and bad, so it comes out in this song. I too have conflicted feelings about my own father. I had heard a story growing up of a man who had a dream and in it his grandfather came to him and asked "What have you done with my name?" My father was the only son of a proud farming family and was very well spoken of. I felt duty bound to honor his name and make him proud of me, even though I only had vague memories of him. About 5 years ago, I found out that he may not have been a good man, and it turned all my desire to honor his name, to naught. I guess now, I'm just trying to honor my own name. :) Anyway, long story to say why this made me cry. I've been listening to the song off and on since yesterday, since there's so much in there. The best thing I'm taking from it is, with these words,

I'm a shake you off though
Get up on that horse and
Ride into the sunset
Look back with no remorse


I feel freedom.

Yeah, this is no ordinary song and I'm keeping it for good! Thanks for sharing it, Col.! What do you find compelling about it?

The guy with the crazy glasses beat boxing drew me in, then the hip hop-ishness of the song takes off and all around weirdness is something I seem to embrace about music. Her lyrics you can tell are powerful whatever they may overtly or subtly mean. I've downloaded the album and it is strange, the genre listed for them was Freak Folk, I've never heard of that, but seems right up my alley. They use all kinds of crazy instruments and even kids toys. I'm not sure I have a definitive answer for what draws me to it, but like a moth to the flame I can't stay away and find myself listening to it again and again. The album version is much different than that one and I can seem to find that remix/alternate version which appears like they just did for that French tv show.  I'm delighted you found it so touching and I'm glad you could find something peaceful in the disturbing parts that most would probably stay away from. It's like facing a fear or disappointment and knowing that it might not be good enough, respectable enough, or even right enough, but it will do for now and I can accept this. I can be grateful for this, even if it is so very painful.

Freak Folk. :) Yeah, I hadn't heard of that before either. It's a whole new world you've discovered, Col.! It's like their imaginations have free reign, where no one has ever told them no. I'm sure the results are a mixed bag, but if songs like this come out of their creative processes, it's so worth it. And, it motivates me to want to just let go and see where creativity can take me. That's a side benefit to this weird music. :)

Yes, just as you've written. It will do for now. Music so often shakes me up and puts me in a difficult place, but more often than not, I end up okay and a little clearer, so yes there is gratitude in spite of the pain.

Hope you find some other great things on this freak folk music adventure!

I was looking for "Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt" and came across this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0rMVpyyQsY#no

I'm not sure if you've heard this rendition, but remembered you like string versions of your favorite songs. :)
Title: Re: Colonel_Mexico likes weird music
Post by: colonel_mexico on August 16, 2016, 08:30:03 AM
A string quartet version of TMV! I'm familiar with other artists being covered in this way (Tool, Mudvayne, etc), but hadn't heard this.  I like the lilting and haunting sound they get from Cerpin Taxt. I love the upright bass solo around 4 mins, and the way the song flows to the end, feels like an African safari vibe. A hunt, a trial by fire, and the conclusion, who brought me here, forsaken depraved and wrought with fear, who turned it off, the last thing I remember now, who brought me here?

"...wrought with fear..." :(  No memory of where he was or what brought him there. Scary and sad that he didn't outrun anything after all with his choice. weighty song. I want to sit with it for a while and let it do its thing... then I need to chase it with something lighter.

Oh! I know! I was in another room in dubtrack the other day and someone played this. I kept it, 'cause it made me happy. This song should do the trick. Balance, right? :)

"Just One Second" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZosMwonEPM#no)

I wish that time would stand still,
if this was a part of a film,
we would watch the clip all day,
