Treachery

Unwound
Leaves Turn Inside You

Tigs, I’m sure you’ve heard this record already, digested it, know more about it than me, but I’ve only been listening on and off for a couple years. It’s my favorfite mumbly album of all time. Any I’m not a fan of the mumblers. Understated, gorgeous melodies. Two discs full of a lot of sound. Wall to goddamn wall full of interesting sound.

I had the distinct honor and priveledge and luck to listen to this album before I listened to any other Unwound album. Which I think was best, having gone back and listened to the others since becoming such a huge fan of this one, and being very let down.

It’s hard to go backwards. The others are nothing compared to this album.

I can’t help but think things are really changing in my life with this album. It marks a time that I don’t go to fast n’ loud Slayer/Black Flag/Minor Threat/Stooges after I’ve had a shit-ass day. Today was one of those days. I should have quit my job, didn’t. I worked too many hours and have absolutely nothing to do and yet I feel like I have so much I am supposed to be doing. As soon as I put on┬áthe first disc of Leaves Turn Inside You, I get a nice feeling, a good-fuck you world, fuck you fuckers, let’s stare at a wall and be OK with that-sort of feeling.

Enough of that. Back to the music.

Cha cha cha cha cha cha Treachery…

Oh, and before I forget to address the last few posts. Tigs, I used GarageBand for my Wugazi track. I found a bunch of Wu-Tang acapella tracks and because I have no idea how to get rid of vox for a Fugazi song, I just used “Floating Boy” off Instrument. Listening back now, I think the Wugazi fellas did a better job than me with that Wu vocal track, but I affirm that Floating Boy’s bassline must be used slow and not sped up for any and all hip hop.

I found a Lobi Traore Band studio album called Lobi Traore Band. It’s pretty damn different. I like it. I listen to it at work with headphones on and I laugh because if ever the headphones came unplugged and everyone heard what I was listening to, they’d freak out and look at me weird. But I feel good about that. Let em’ riot.
