Default Re: Recommend me some music.

Malkmus - Face the Truth is right up there with Pink Floyd - Momentary Lapse of Reason as "most apt album title of alltime." That record sounds like SM smoked about 15 bowls, then jerked off all over the tape deck. He lost it somewhere in the middle of Pig Lib, and it doesn't look like he's ever going to find it again. Such a shame, since Pavement (the SM songs, not the spiral crap) is probably one of the best 4 or 5 rock bands ever.

Anyway, music sucked this year. Some things that didn't suck:
Spoon - Gimme Fiction. not quite as good as the 10.0 Kill the Moonlight, but still pretty damn incredible.
Doves - Some Cities. give it a few listens....this record is all over the place, so it takes a little while to settle in, but once it does, it's a real treat.

One that hasn't been mentioned yet...
Giant Drag - Hearts and Unicorns. Like the Breeders with a touch of My Bloody Valentine, and a lot of snark. They're better live, and their best track isn't on this album, but the record is still pretty damn good.
