TV On The Radio

I've been meaning to put up some stuff about music for a while, its not all air guitar. So sitting at home on a Weds evening (and finally posting on a thursday afternoon) I figured lets write up something. Anyway the tunes of the moment, two albums I only finally managed to get around to buying a few weeks ago, and definately the most played among my current crop of audio therapy, are

   o Tv On The Radio - Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes
   o Sonic Youth - Nurse

Tv On The Radio's Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes is one of the best albums that I've heard this year, not sure how to describe it, just genuinely good. A few people that I've talked to reckon its a bit overrated, but I really can see why the critics love it. I'm sure the fact that its released on this side of the atlantic on 4ad records and from what I can see on Touch & Go records stateside could only be a good indication ;).

Sonic Youth's Nurse is a nice simple back to basics Sonic Youth album, even with (or perhaps despite) the influence of Jim O'Rourke (of The High Llamas fame) it hasn't gone off into some of the more experimental territory that they have been occupying over recent years. Enjoyable. (I got stung with the Muzikaj Perspektivoj project that Sonic Youth and Jim O'Rourke did a few years ago, expensive import for something altogether not very good)

As for other things, if by some chance you happen to be in Dublin this evening ( Thurs 5th) head to Whelans to see God Is An Astronaut. One of the more interesting bands emerging out of Ireland at the moment. Visuals, loops, distortion and lots more
