Nurse With Wound - Homotopy To Marie (bunch of ####ing around with industrial noise - Creepy and unsettling sounds but not really stuff to listen to very much. "The Schmürz" was the only worthwhile track)
Nurse With Wound - Spiral Insana (This one was more a collage of sounds and more musical and relaxing, with some synth and organ drones that are relaxing. I really liked this one)
Lewis - L'amour (thanks Billdude! It's funny how he was mocking this album but I ended up falling in love with this thing. Beautiful, beautiful piano ballads and jazzy guitar shuffles.. Holy shit, something about this record that really hits me hard. Kinda played it out too much now after a few weeks, but I adore "Love Showered Me". That and a few other songs here are a few of the most gorgeous songs I've ever heard)
Game Theory - Big Shot Chronicles (Very weird this album wasn't more popular back then. Very instantly likable album, filled with hooks and great vocals. A classic for sure)
Game Theory - Lolita Nation (I like Chronicles better so far, but this album is fun and I like the sprawling, ramshackle concept of putting a bunch of very weird short tracks in with all of the actual "songs" on the record. The songs seem to be all really good, but so far it's kinda long.. Gonna take me a few full listens assess properly..)
Paul Bley - Open, To Love (solo piano jazzy album. Very minimalist but very gracefully recorded material)
Tindersticks - s/t (Very interesting.. the guys voice takes getting used to but up my alley)
Tool - Aenima and Undertow (the discussions here about Tool made me want to revisit them.. I find myself only interested in the weird experimental shit like Disgustipated mostly, but even those can be silly and pointless.. Undertow I think is a pretty good record though, but could be nostalgia. Loved it when I was 11 years old when it first came out. Aenima has some great tracks but it is really bogged down by those stupid "segues" or whatever they call them. Although "Message To Harry Manback" is hilarious. Maybe that incredibly silly weird German song with the cookie recipe would freak some people out these days)
Chrome - Blood On The Moon (good guitar work and decent enough melodies.. I am still trying to get into anything post Half Machine Lip Moves. They just completely lost me after that album and became more average new wave or post-punk instead of this crazy insane bad acid trip of a band they used to be)
Also listening to some Jandek albums. I got kind of curious if his albums sounded all exactly the same and they don't. There are some fascinating ones, where other people sing ("Nancy Sings" has a great female vocalist who sounds like young Grace Slick) and play other instruments on them, or if he primarily uses one guy who can actually play guitar which makes it sound like actual "songs". There's even a few albums (You Walk Alone and On The Way) where he straight up has this acid rock/psych rock band playing with him and it sounds pretty damn cool!
I am growing on a few of his acoustic albums too. Something about some of them are less creepy and unsettling and more comfy 3 am listening type of thing. Not all of them, but a few have clicked with me here and there.
He has his own style at times and he can sing pretty good. If he had a terrible voice I am sure I wouldn't be able to sit thru this crap.
