The 2nd saddest, dreariest album I've heard this year. (the 1st being A Crow Looked at Me by Mount Eerie)
The vocals and instrumentation are very haunting, and the lyrics have a unique tone, they consistently churn up emotion even when I'm not entirely sure what they mean.
I loved it, check it out! This is the first song, "Jesus Alone"
And the rest of the album in a playlist, how convenient!

Will continue listening to his discography, at least until I start to not like what I'm hearing. We shall see!

I'm having a dead crush moment these days...A dead crush moment is when you realize there's a whole band you didn't really know about/factor in/understand that you suddenly focus upon and suddenly your stream is filled with bad ass music you were not expecting. One of my first experiences with a dead crush moment was the Buzzcocks when a friend lent me Singles Going Steady in the early 2000s and damn that's a great album that just wasn't on my radar (and yea, I knew nothing of the buzzcocks). Dead Crush moments are rare if you listen to music with an interest. You generally have an idea of most of the stuff on the radar. That said, I kind of stopped listening to much new music around 2000 and somehow I missed LCD Soundsystem. Not sure I would'a liked them anyway on the first go round. However, I'm real into them these days and from their first (self titled) to their latest (two days ago) I'm enjoying the ride. Catchy dance music for people who don't like dance music? A hipper more fun Cure (*circa 1997)? I'm enjoying it.
PS yea I went through a huge crush on Nick Cave when a girl I knew had her basement flooded and I inherited her nick cave/bad seeds/birthday party vinyl collection. WIN!

I've had quite a lot of these dead crush moments, never heard that term before though. Bands like: Fugazi, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Swans, Talking Heads... among many others.
Been listening to a band called Nails recently. Probably the heaviest metal music I've ever heard, it is monsterous. And most of their songs are under 1 minute in length, their first two albums lasting 14 minutes and 17 minutes respectively. Their most recent album from last year clocks in at a little over 22 minutes, only because the last track on the album is over 8 minutes in length. So if you want to blow out your eardrums in the time it takes to watch a TV program, minus the commercials, then Nails is the way to go.
