Once I Wanted To Be

Here is a sample of one of my favourite bands. I love Chan Marshall even more than Jenny Lewis and I want to hold her.

Chan Marshall stops time. She sits at a piano or lays her guitar across her lap, and whether it’s a noisy club overflowing with drunks or a coffee house full of laptoppers, Chan Marshall draws all the attention in the room and makes the world stop spinning. As Cat Power, Marshall’s music seems to rise from nowhere, envelop the room, then vanish; listeners know they’ve been hit by something but they’re not sure what.
-suprisingly wanky review from Matador

Cat Power: Wonderwall
Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

This is intriguing, and makes me want to weep more than PostSecret.

Cat Power: I Found A Reason
Oh I do believe
In all the things you say
What comes is better than what came before

And you'd better come come, come come to me
Better come come, come come to me
Better run, run run, run run to me
Better come

This is a Velvet Underground cover, and is beautiful.

Cat Power: The Greatest
Melt me down
into big black armour
Leave no trace
Of grace
Just in your honor
Lower me down
Lower me down
Secure the grounds
For the later parade

This is not, but is still beautiful and classic.

And finally, Cat Power: Keep On Runnin'
When will you do what you say you’ll do?
How could you really do it?
Why you keep on running?
Baby settle down
Why you keep on running?
You'll lose your home
Why you keep on running?
Baby settle down
Why you keep on running?
Run on, run on. You’ll rule your den.

Crawlin black spider baby
Crawlin black spider
Got me to crawl on baby with the grass was very high
Just keep on crawlin till the day I die

I played this song on repeat the first time I heard it, haunted.

Sorry about my incoherence, but it's been a rough weekend.

Love always,
Your Procrastinating Mod.

"g'day again.
just 'cause i know most of you like all that mp3-sharing-type-thing, there's a couple of links i'd like to share.
first. the brian jonestown massacre (mainly anton newcombe, known to most people as 'the crazy guy from DiG') have free mp3s of their work on their website. as far as what to download goes, everything on 'bravery, repitition and noise' is fuckin' fantastic.
second. i don't know if any of you have heard of them, but can were a very influentual german group in the seventies. they're very experimental, and their best album has been posted online by someone, i don't know who. they're all pretty big tracks, so i'd recommend downloading 'paperhouse' first. it's only 10mbs.
third. there's a useful tool for finding mp3s on the net that i found, it's called g2p.org. it's pretty good."

Thought I would share! :)

PS - The BJM site has heaps of other artists' random tracks as well!

Sing For The Astronauts


Metric: "The Police & The Private"
Get straight and wait here while I try to find the exit sign
When will you stop asking strangers, no one wants what we want
Keep one eye on the door, keep one eye on the bag
Never expect to be sure who you're working for

You're working for the police and the private, the pilots and the pirates
Fingerprinted waiting for the train
The doctor, the writer, the hairdresser,
Felt up and fingerprinted waiting for the train

Lord lord mother we are all losing love
Lord listen lover we are all missing mama
Lord lord mother we are all losing love
Lord listen lover we are all missing something I don't got
Radiohead: "Karma Police"
Karma police, arrest this man, he talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge, hes like a detuned radio
Karma police, arrest this girl, her hitler hairdo, is making me feel ill
And we have crashed her party
This is what you get, this is what you get
This is what you get, when you mess with us

Karma police, Ive given all I can, its not enough
Ive given all I can, but were still on the payroll
This is what you get, this is what you get
This is what you get, when you mess with us
And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
And for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
For a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myself
The Clash: "Police & Thieves"
Police and thieves in the streets - Oh yeah!
Scaring the nation with their guns and ammunition
Police and thieves in the street - Oh yeah!
Fighting the nation with their guns and ammunition

From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be hear me
From Genesis to Revelation
The next generation will be hear me

Scaring, fighting the nation
Shooting, shooting their guns and ammunition

Police, police, police and thieves oh yeah
Police, police, police and thieves oh yeah
Here come, here come, here come
The station is bombed
Get out get out get out you people
If you don't wanna get blown up
NWA: "Fuck Tha' Police"
Right about now, NWA court is in full effect.
Judge Dre presiding in the case of NWA versus the police department.
Prosecuting attourneys are MC Ren, Ice Cube, and Eazy muthafuckin E.
Order, order, order. Ice Cube, take the muthafuckin stand.
Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth
and nothin but the truth so help your black ass?
Why don't you tell everybody what the fuck you gotta say?

Fuck tha police
Comin straight from the underground
Young nigga got it bad cuz I'm brown
And not the other color so police think
They have the authority to kill a minority

Fuckin with me cuz I'm a teenager
With a little bit of gold and a pager
Searchin my car, lookin for the product
Thinkin every nigga is sellin narcotics
Sendspace have a really neat multiple upload thingy. It meets my approval, so it must be good!

Ciao! ^_^

Don't Wake Me, I Plan On Sleeping In (Continued From Last Night At 3 AM)

Today we shall focus on sleep, as I am staying awake! HAHAHAHAHA!

#1Sleep by The Dandy Warhols (5MB roughly)
Genre: Alternative, Accoustic, Pop?
Well I could sleep forever
but it's of her I dream
if I could sleep forever
I could forget about everything
if I could sleep forever
if I could sleep forever
if I could sleep forever

A pretty lovely little unexpected song by a rad band.

#2I'm Only Sleeping by The Format (1MB roughly)
Genre: Pop, Accoustic, Groovy
everybody seems to think im lazy
i dont mind, i think they're crazy
running everywhere at such a speed
until they find, there's no need

please dont spoil my day
im miles away
and after all, im only sleeping

A fun ditty with raw yum flavour basically.

#3I Can't Feel My Hand Anymore, It's Alright, Sleep Tight by Múm (7MB roughly)
Genre: Electronic, Pop, Ambience
I like their music because its simple and just plain nice.

#4I Need Some Sleep by Eels (3MB roughly)
Genre: Funky, Pop, Soundtrack, Ambient
I need some sleep
It can't go on like this
I tried counting sheep
But there's one I always miss
Everyone says I'm getting down too low
Everyone says you just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go

#5Trouble Sleeping by The Perishers (4MB roughly)
Genre: Alternative, Soft-Pop
t’s you
Why’s it always you
and never me?
I’ve never dared to let
my feelings free
Why’s it always you
and never me?
I’ve never cared
too much about honesty

I’m having trouble sleeping
I’m thinking of what you said
About the tears been shed
Leave me

Lovely background slow-dance romance scene climactic magical falling happy music from the O.C.

#6We'll Never Sleep (God Knows We'll Try) by Rilo Kiley (2MB roughly)
Genre: Accoustic, Folk, Nice
stealing away into the night
won't get you any higher
we'll never sleep
god knows we'll try
the hospital is closed

and how long will it last
before we go insane?

we circle your uncle's parking lot
just to se how many
times that we can before we get caught
you guessed on twenty

and how long will you stare
before i look away?
i don't wanna go

#7Sleep Tonight by Stars (3MB roughly)
Genre: Electronic, Alternative, Ambient-Pop
we dont want to sleep tonight
still young like that i count the lines
beside your mouth that smiles now
my arms reach up as you go down
with buried heads we both forget
all of the past and its regret
wind picks up, the window shakes
we wont hear the morning break

you will cry
and i will cry
'cause all the love's
alive tonight

My favourite band, twisted but delicate.

#8Sleep Trick by Tracer AMC (5MB roughly)
Genre: Accoustic, Ambient
Think a bit of Sigur Ros meets Benevento Russo Duo. Calm.

Goodnight. ♥

P.S. Please, please, someone, buy me cable. It should not take like 2 hours to do just this post.

Hi everyone.

I'm glad that this community is becoming more active, maybe. Just a note - I based it on one of the greatest communities ever, ____rhapsodical, and I would like us to take up their tagging system. I thought it was crazy in the beginning to include the username, artist(s), and announcement(optional) in the tags, but now I think its useful to keep track of too much indie wank, etc.

While reading some old school Questionable Content, I came across this Ultimate Fantastic Supreme Band called Deerhoof. You can download heaps of their tracks HERE. They have a rock-meets-pop-meets j-pop-but-not meets-Mogwai-meets-Ratatat-meets-Le Tigre feel, which I believe is good. I love post-post-ironic bands! < /qc>

Pandora is a hardcorely-brilliant site that lets you listen to your favourite music for free and makes other good music magically pops up also! I don't think it's very dial-up friendly, but I really like the concept, and the fact that you can set up personalised stations, without signing up for anything (I think).

And finally, Matador. This is me in website form. Random groovy music thrown up without much time given, free and wonderful love for every man and his dog.

¡Adiós para siempre, usted bastardos!

Your Ex-Lover Is Dead.

I've uploaded this a squillion times, but someone requested it, so heres your ysi leftover.

It takes me 15 minutes to upload ONE FRIGGIN SONG, so I'm sorry that all I do is write down and perfect my posts, so I'm sorry I don't just say to myself "SHUT UP! Any music is better than none!"


The point is - screw members only, and screw having to request to post. Everyone can see the entries, and everyone can post.

So go nuts!
