Moss Icon - Lyburnum

Woah this place looks different it's all grey. Here is some Moss Icon, some band that were playing emotional hardcore before people were even calling it that (emotional hardcore sounds dumb anyway, like regular hardcore isn't emotional already?). Too bad they missed the 'Revolution Summer' by a year or something. Blah blah, it's good, get it.

New Contributor - Deviant

The looserthanloose blog/community/brotherhood/family/fraternity/club/group would like to welcome its newest member, the ineffable, unassailable, incomparable, inaudible (cuz its the internet lol) and a bunch of other words too DEVIANT.

He's also got better everything than you.

but particularly hair.
oh baby

Wayne Shorter - Juju

Shorter put out a string of great albums on Blue Note through the 60's, before he went all fusiony and founded Weather Report in the 70's. This album was released in 1964, around the time he joined Miles Davis' amazing quintet, though before his playing evolved into what it would be like in that group later on. Here, Shorter is very much under the spell of Coltrane (as nearly all saxophonists were at that stage), but the one thing that shines through no matter what period of his career you pick, is his compositions. While they were still basically following the general bop guidelines of the day, his harmonic and melodic material is far more intricate in its relationship to each other. What results is you humming along to things in your car you never thought you would.

Also featuring two parts of Coltrane's quartet in McCoy Tyner and Elvin Jones, and the ever-reliable Reggie Workman on bass, you know you are in for something special.

Lord Finesse - Return of the Funky Man

Early 90's East Coast, you know the drill.

He did a great deal of the production on this too, and got a bit of help from, among others, Showbiz (of Showbiz and A.G fame (A.G also guests)). Solid, if nothing outstanding, but oft-neglected just because of the rest of the great shit back then.

Mayhem - Deathcrush

Fuck yeah Mayhem
Fuck yeah Deathcrush
Fuck yeah songs called Chainsaw Gutsfuck

but seriously this is a great lil slice of black metal this and De Mysteriis are the two highest points of their discog easily and hey if you dont like it its only 20 mins long so stfu

The Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

Classic album if you don't like this then you are not a person. This is probably the best pop album ever to exist bar maybe a Beatles album. You can hear its influence even today, clear as a bell. The harmonies, the songwriting and the vocal precision are all breathtaking and it's hyper-melodic but retains this sense of atmosphere that balances its sound pretty much perfectly. oh yeah and its the most catchy and singalongable thing ever in the world ever.

Get this shit now
