It took me half a day, but I am finally digging into the new Throwing Muses album. I’m only on track five but I had to post that it is utter bliss. Creepy, aggressive, Muses bliss.
This couldn’t be more different from the last album, Purgatory/Paradise, if it tried. Well, maybe they did try, I don’t know. If I had to compare it to previous stuff I’d say it’s spooky like House Tornado is at times, and heavy like the self titled first post-hiatus album was, but at the same time it is absolutely nothing like either of them. It’s just really good so far. Like, really good. Like I am so happy I could throw up all over myself with glee good.
I’m on track six now, “Upstairs Dan” and it’s my favorite cut so far. Either this one or Dark Blue, but I have been listening to Dark Blue so maybe I’m biased toward this.
Go listen to it! Go listen to it!
It’s finally happened. At long last, this dog shit of a 2020 got something right!
Sometimes you just need it, you know?
I can’t even tell you how badly I need this. Now. Today.
What am I doing now that I’ve finished last night’s episode of The Walking Dead?
Listening to Throwing Muses and reading Bloom County.
That is all.
I haven’t watched this yet. I’m just posting it to save it for later.
It’s a new Throwing Muses video, so for me it’s kind of a big deal.
And by “big” I mean immensely huge.
I tried out iOS 7’s integration with Flickr last night. Success. The other new service tied into the new OS is Vimeo. I didn’t have a Vimeo account until this morning. I’d be curious to see how the release of iOS 7 affects their account stats over the next few days. Anyway, I don’t have any video to upload at the moment, so I poked around for something to try to post here.
I found this cool Throwing Muses video from their tour of Europe a couple of years ago.
And for fun, here is the Wizard of Oz set to Dark Side of Moon.
