That's what happens when you pay for music.

This forum is in need of something not boring and lame to talk about.
Check this out: http://www.yousendit.com/transfer.ph...AFEA9B36CFF782
That is a song from a band that Led Zeppelin opened for a few times in their first year. Skip ahead to 40 seconds or so, and you'll probably recognize the guitar part.

I really digg sonofrobot that guy really got attitude.

I unfortunatly have to say that noelprior gets me a bit disgusted, probably because of the kooks. They are such a poseur band, and them having vaguely a same sound they remind me of them :P

poseur? the kooks? get out!

too many differences between the two bands to list in full, but here's a few

* noel doesnt use electric guitars
* noel doesnt use plecs
* the vocals are a totally different style
* so is the music

The kooks have stupid lyrics they feel like theyre trying to have something to say when they dont. Their chords are to much influenced by their obvious msuic education theyre trying to sound to harmonical and jazzy again it feels like theyre trying to be something theyre not. And the singing lacks cowbell at times. Theyre still good but they feel poseuriee... And sure there are diffrence between them two but i said they vaguely remind me of the kooks making me disturbed, Much like some bands have that "to clean dist" which makes it sound to american, leading me to vaguely remember good charlotte and such stupid bands.

Been rather enjoying this song (though I prefer the remix by Combichrist):

Angelspit - 100%

Dip my tail in blood ink
Write it down in red
Scribe the words "Happy meal"
Right across your head

Tired of getting walked on
Treated like a sheep
Don't blame me for all the years
That you were asleep

**
Relax
God is in control
Watch the dot
Take your meds
Obey my demands
Trust my dog
Time for surgery
Relax
God is in control
Watch the dot
Take your meds
Obey my demands
Trust my dog
Shut your eyes you're dead
**

Televised mass poison
Spitting at the screen
Keep the masses deluded
With fabricated dreams

Powdered God in a bag
From the Vatican
I want you to fuck off
As hard as you can

[Chorus]

Heaven has burst open
Now it's raining bones
The chaos will erode you
Breeding little clones

Born of a fallen rib
From the monkey's womb
Overcooked by cathode rays
Evolved to consume

100% [4x]

Eating from the butcher's slab
Becoming what they meet
Restrained and roasted while they gorge
Strapped into the seat

Bathing in your arrogance
Dining will ensue
God made me a cannibal
To fix problems like you

[Chorus]

100% [2x]

Last time was the last time...
This time, you're 100% [3x]

Last time was the last time...
This time, you're 100% fucked

fragile wasnt mine, but 'my little fix' was a quick thing i sent to noel to listen to. it's quite hard to accurately mix all of that set because i had to record it post fader D:

Some really surprising new stuff from Ratatat just came out, really cool tunes, good headphone music...turntablelab review:

R E V I E W
After we listened to about half of this new Ratatat album here in the office, The Commish leaned over to me and said: "Man, I keep waiting for a whiny indie rock male vocalist to come in! This is great!" Indeed, the duo's new is a pleasant listening experience from front to back – clean, synthy and instrumental, sounding alternately like the soundtrack to the lost level of Castlevania and… uhh, one of those video game song cover bands on Kill Rock Stars. I know you've probably seen these dudes (all bearded and indie rock) and read reviews about how they're so "infectious" and "dancey," but honestly this is just some nice ass headphone music with a steady beat and a mellow temperament. Even the single, "Wildcat(1)" (which makes me think of Eli Cash), isn't super-hype – but it's more than suitable for a little downtempo mixtape/set where you wanna add a little excitement. Tracks like "Swisha(2)" prove Ratatat's worth by swapping out any notion of danceability for a gorgeous, lush spaghetti western update. "Lex(3)" and "Tropicana(4)" show a bit of bombast for the usually restrained pair. Maybe I'm not explaining this well, or making it sound a bit boring… but it's not. For really real. A solid indie LP in a time when solid indie LPs are increasingly hard to come by. 10 tracks; 42 minutes.
