I agree 200% with  you, e.   Could it be that the lack of quality
releases from 4AD and the discovery that other labels, and
independents for that matter, are producing really great stuff have
allowed us to view 4ad without our rose tinted glasses?  It used to be
that if a band released anything on 4AD I would like it.  For me, the
decline became noticable with _Euphoria_.  I can't really explain it, but
I didn't get a good feeling from the Insides. However, that same year The

I think a closer analysis of the problem might show that you are actually
quite mad. Euphoria is a better album than Mine, my friend. It is
undeniably brilliant. It may be annoying or send you personally into no
thrill of ecstacy, but do you *honestly* call Euphoria an album lacking
sufficient class, originality, finesse, care, dexterity, or glamour to
fit in with the best labors of love circa what we all seem to agree were
4AD's Glory Years? Why? Since the subject at hand is the quality of 4AD
releases and not just personal preference, you are making an aesthetic
judgement here. I am really curious as to what problem you could possibly
have with this album. I don't know a lot of people who love it, but I've
never seen someone denounce it. I personally think it is better than both
Mine and Spoonfed Hybrid, though by not too wide a margin.

Okay, maybe not undeniably, but you really have got me wondering if you
should perhaps be hospitalized for this.

While I really, really love some parts of that album (most notably the
five-six first tracks), some parts (ie. two tracks near the end) seem
to me to merely be coasting along. That faux-jazz thing. Tsk, tsk.

But what I wanted to ask - does anybody know what those zany Insides
people are doing now? If there were news of a new album, I would, like
be very happy.

On the other hand, that 40-minutes-of-noodling thing they put out,
"Clear Skin", did leave me cold, and their first album (cunningly
disguised under the name of "Earwig") was just so-so (imagine
"Euphoria" without the zest, glitz, ztyle and tunez), so, for all I
know, "Euphoria" might have been a single spark of brilliance in the
midst of an entire career of "quite good"-ness. (Did that sentence
parse at all?)

(Hey - 1993 was a great year for 4AD, I've just discovered.
"Euphoria", "Spoonfed Hybrid", "Star", "Mouth by Mouth", "Red House
Painters", "Last Splash", "Into the Labyrinth"... Fab year. How was
1994, I wonder? "Mine", "Hips and Makers", "Split", "Slow Buildings",
"Toward the Within", "Geek the Girl"! Hey, 1994 was a good year as
well. 1995, then? "Ocean Beach", "University", Lisa Gerrard,
Liquorice... A bit slimmer so far, at least. 1993 was definitely some
kind of peak year, though.)

Subject: I finally wrote a review of sorts for Friday's Elysium show


I don't think that anyone else from the 4ad-l was there.

To start out I should say that their CD has taken a while to grow on me.
The music doesn't really jump out at you, it just kind of starts to submerge
you, like a good Red House Painters song. After I attuned myself to some
of the subtleties going on the singing and guitars began to pull me along.
I would probably agree with most of the descriptions given on the list of their
sound. A remote point of reference I thought of is The Glee Club's quiet
moments (none of that rock stuff), but the Moon 7X comparison is probably
closer though. I could even go so far as to make a _Victorialand_ connection
to songs like "Sweetly Said." The slower songs remind me of the atmosphere of
a warm summer evening with that lingering lazy heat of the day fading with
the sun.

So after listening to their cd for a couple of weeks I finally got a chance to
see Elysium play last night at Stage Left in Glendale. They were just
incredible, sublime even. If you get a chance, you must go see them!
(I'm sure we'll hear more about their Oct. tour soon.) They played most of the
songs on the cd and a few others. The opening with "Glistening Ganache" was
perfect. For a few moments I could barely believe that these four people in
front of me started making sounds-- exactly like a song I had recently come to
adore. Their performance of "Proud Man," one of my favorites on the cd, was
just as incredible. Jenny Adams' voice ranges from whispering to playful to
plaintive and heart-breaking, always with a slightly edged tone.
Compared to their recorded sound, their live sound has more energy, wider
dynamics and a broader pallette of guitar sounds. When I talked a bit to Tony
after the show he explained the last part was because they originally recorded
his guitar with only a little Zoom box for effects, without the small
collection of pedals he had last night.
The coffeehouse setting was nice too. It seemed like almost all of the people
there were friends with the band; about half of the songs were jokingly
dedicated to people in the audience. So when they play near you go see them!
so there will be new faces in the audience. Great music, extra nice people,
what more can you ask for?

Forgive the "Johnny-come-lately" appearance of the post...
I've been "digest-challenged" until recently.

I'm not really going to do a comparison/contrast between
Nick and Simon (sounds like Duran Duran, eh? :)...I'm a
big Cave _and_ Crime fan. And I believe Simon Bonney's
solo material deserves more than the summary dismissal
it has received here.

I saw Simon in Chicago about two months ago, in a small
backroom of a bar. It was basically an acoustic show,
with Simon singing and playing acoustic, another acoustic
guitar player, an electric bass player, and Simon's wife
Bronwyn on violin and backing vocals.

There were perhaps 20 people in the audience, and I had
ample opportunity to chat with Simon after the show.

This was easily the best show I've seen in a while...the
atmosphere was intimate, the performance flawless. And
yes, Simon is definitely showing a heavy country influence
these days. However, he's picked the best country: prime
Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings...

I've never been a huge country fan (save Patsy Cline),
but I find Simon's new direction quite engaging.

This is _not_ meant to be in "competition" with

exercise, as 1) The list is rather DIY, with minimal
automation, and I would never be able to keep up with
the amount of subscribers that 4AD-L supports and
2) 4AD-L already caters to 4AD-type discussion.
I'm more interested in creating a list for the "other"

I'll post details once I have everything worked out...
it will take a bit of time, as I'm quite busy

I got The Mirror Pool a couple days ago, and thought
I'd add my comments to the ongoing discussion.

On the whole I'm disappointed.  To be honest, I never
really liked DCD.  People kept telling me I would, and
I tried, but they never did it for me.

Then for my birthday this year a friend gave me the
"Toward The Within" video, and another friend gave
me the CD, and I loved them both.  The live performances
had a presence and an energy which I didn't find in the
studio albums, which struck me as too slick.

Lisa's performance in Toward The Within, in particular,
was captivating, so I had high hopes for the solo album.

Basically, The Mirror Pool is everything I didn't like
about the DCD studio albums.  It's too cool and slick.
I feel like it puts a great distance between the artist
and the listener.  Sure, it's interesting and original,
but it doesn't manage to make me care.

My two cents...

I think we've always had flamewars, although in the past they tended to
have more direct musical content and be about _bands_ (PJ Harvey,
Stereolab, Medicine...) rather than off-topic stuff. This is still the most
worthwhile music related mailing list (or newsgroup, obviously) I know of.

Subject: Mirror Pool reactions


Currently, I'm on my fourth listen to this latest bit of DCD product.

I was introduced and hooked on DCD circa "A Passage In Time" and have
since acquired all of the LPs (except "pasage..' oddly enough). Hence,
one could say I'm a DCD devotee. As for my prefernce on the Brenden/Lisa
talent slide rule, I'll through my lot in with the 'whole greater than
the sum of the parts' gang.

But with eager salivation I did march to the music shop and procure my
copy of The Mirror Pool. As for the album art, pseudo-artsy schlock for
the most part, although the inside portrait of Lisa is very nice.

The music itself is very evocative of some sort of enigmatic opera, both
tragic and epic. On the whole, the album is not particularly
earth-shattering, but still very nice. The orchestral backing is very
complementary at times and at other times limiting (such as "werd") in
its inherently static and conventional tonalities, working with something
as eclectic and enigmatic as Lisa's vocals.

Lisa's Yang Ch'in performances are fast becoming a favorite inovation of
mine in  DCD's recent material, and they are especially nice here
("laurelei" in particular).

As a intro to DCD, this would not be a place to start. But this isn't
exclusively an album that is DCD fans only, as it's a very nicely done
and majestic album in it's own right.

I suppose the TooPure comparison may be apropos in that both labels do come
across as steadfastly iconoclastic purveyors of "hip music as we (the label)
acknowledge it".  Indie as fuck, more rock than pop, just a hair inscrutable,
and whatever trend they follow is entirely their own.  TooCool, if you ask
me.  Not bad for a label with only seven releases to its name.  Here's what
their roster consists of thus far:

Labradford
Dadamah
Dissolve
Spiny Anteaters
Jessamine
Bowery Electric

And as far as I can recall, they've only released albums, no singles.  And
many of these albums are meticulously and majestically packaged.  The
Jessamine album is a screaming example.  I bought the LP for the packaging
and the CD for the two bonus tracks.  Now there's good marketing for ya.  :)

Dadamah and Dissolve are two New Zealand bands (now defunct, I believe), and
the Spiny Anteaters (what little pathetic smidgen I heard at the store)
reminded me somewhat of a very lo-fi hybrid of Pavement and Can.  A number of
my Xpressway/kiwimuzik afficionado friends are pretty enthusiastic about
Dadamah.  And everyone sings hosannahs about Labradford and Jessamine.

With respect to the men behind the curtains, from what I've been told, Kranky
is operated by the fellow who publishes/edits the toohip 'Your Flesh' zine
and the now-ex-head buyer at Cargo distribution.  No idea what sort of
breakfast cereal they consume, but goshdarnit, I want some.

Anyway, that's enough prattle about them.

Cheers,

Oh God, not the dreaded trans-Atlantic critical delayed reaction thing.  For
whatever it's worth, the UK magazine 'Wire' ran an article on "post-rock"
bands about nine months or so ago.  Mentioned everyone from Bark Psychosis to
Moonshake to Pram to Laika and so on.  For some reason I'd thought the term
"post-rock" had gone out the door already.  Oh, well, looks like we ended up
inheriting it second hand-like here.  Grrrr.

Who wrote the Village Voice article?  Robert Xgau?  Just curious.

Oh, but to throw in my truckload of centavos on "post-rock" as the followup
to grunge - I think that may be (or have been) the case on a pedestrian
rock-crit level.  However, I would seriously start questioning the aesthetics
of the lumpenprole if, oh, let's say Laika's 'Silver Apples of the Moon' went
straight to #1 on Billboard.  I mean, that'd be kinda cool, but would or
could that really happen?  And what sort of world would that be... hey,
didn't this happen in an episode of 'Sliders'?  :)

Elitistly yours,
