    one of the great indie-rock albums of it's era. i think my recent focus on old favorites reflects my search for the familiar in a transitional period in my life.

    I feel like a jerk, now, but that's my least-favorite song on that particular record album. lol Sorry, B! I quite like Strange Geometry, but I think it's a bit spotty; and I do enjoy "Bookshop Casanova," if less than the other tracks.

    I remember going to see them on or right around the day that Alex Chilton died.  They played "Nighttime," I believe it was.  It was sweet.

    i just remember Casanova being groovy and ska-y, not the best song on the album. slag it all you want! i like a lot of their stuff, especially some of the big songs from their first two records (which i don't even remember the names of), but i don't really have a strong affection for any of it but Strange Geometry. for whatever reason it was an album that stuck with me because that was right when i was getting into music and Franz Ferdinand and Pitchforkmedia.com

    I remember the day the Pitchfork review of Strange Geometry dropped.  I read it in a college computer lab and was like, "Wow.  They finally made it. tearsofjoy."

    If you order vinyl in the mail and it sits on your doorstep for a couple of hours in the winter (midwestern USA winter), is there any risk of it getting damaged (warped, cracked, etc)?

    Because I really wanted to pre-order that but never did for said reason.

    shouldn't be any damage from the cold but you need to get them gradually back up to room temperature i.e. don't take them out of the sleeve/packaging for a couple of days after bringing them in.

    just poke around in the discogs of UR, Drexciya and associated acts. Donald and Stinson (RIP) both have/had loads of cool side projects. A few of my faves: Elecktroids, The Other People Place, Transllusion, NRSB-11, Dopplereffekt, Japanese Telecom.

    Also worth branching out into Sherard Ingram aka Dj Stingray. Definitely do a deep dive on his Urban Tribe project if you haven't before. It involves Carl Craig, Anthony Shakir and Kenny Dixon, Jr. Need I say more.

    This and The Legendary Adventures Of A Filter King are the two CC releases I listen to most often these days. So good.

    I found my old iPhone that has non-streaming music on it and have been revisiting a few albums I haven't heard in a while incl. stuff from Joanna Newsom, Boredoms, Nisennenmondai, OOIOO, and Boris.

    there's a lot of background buzz on this as a old, live recording, but this performance is brilliant:

    There's practically nothing from this album on Youtube or anywhere else except for this track, but take my word for it this thing is just great.
