Whattya Listenin' to Wednesday - 5/5/10

Ahoy, followers of The Metal Minute!

The world's going insane with volcanoes, floods, oil spills and terrorism it's no wonder metal is considered the number one escapist form of music. Not that we should turn our backs to the world's problems, but you can see why the genre grows stronger and why so many artists scramble to get in the door.

Pounding down some Sumatra coffee on my way out today and gearing up for a big weekend which will be detailed next week. Here at The Metal Minute expect an upcoming review of the slammin' Annihilator DVD Live at Masters of Rock plus The Ocean's latest (also The Metal Minute's Album of the Month selection for May), and we'll see what other goodies Uncle Batjerk can fish out of the utility belt for your edification.

On that note, cheers, my lovelies...

Jeff, I'm just finally catching up with In Rainbows along with the Thom Yorke solo album and looking forward to them...I'm beginning to think the adage Burn Hollywood Burn ought to be fronted strictly against the 2012 producers. :)

Tarlesio, welcome! Please drop in again, I love your little sidebars and like most of my regulars here and myself, you have great eclectic taste...Dommin indeed was a pleasant surprise and I gave Nymphetamine album of the year kudos when it came out.

Klepto, you still have us beat, albeit I gave you a nice run this past week. :)

Mark, I'm not sure what I Need that Record is, but it sounds cool and very much descriptive of us music heads. No matter how many albums I have, there's ALWAYS some band I should've been plugging into my collection. Always.

cjk, I'm getting to catch a couple games of the Stanley Cup now and am impressed by the speed this year...I mean, the playoffs are always jacked up, but the raw determination this year impresses me

Metal Mark said...

Ray-It's a documentary about the recent struggles and closings of indie record stores.

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

Well, I'm all over THAT...email me the contact, will you? I'm never short on opinions for that topic.

Jeff said...

I Need That Record was awesome. Definitely one of the best docs I've seen in a long time. Beyond the actual film, I really enjoyed watching the extras with the 45 minute interviews with each of the musicians.

The Klepto said...

Yea Ray I was impressed with your totals. Mine wont be nearly as long next month when I move much closer to work. Half of my listening time goes out the window. Oh well, save gas.

If you lot are interesting in something different and good, the 4 disc set "Sucking The 70's (Vol I and II)" ware worth the listen. It's a collection of stoner/desert rock bands doing covers of 70 greats. Some of the songs I didn't recognize, but someone who is older then I (Being a child of the 80's) might appreciate it more. Just a heads up

Ray Van Horn, Jr. said...

thanks to Mark, I'm in on the contact and hope to reviewing that one here....Klepto, trust me, I know about the long haul drives and your playlist will jack up accordingly...good music's the ONLY way to tolerate a long daily commute...now road trips are a different matter :)
