SLTM (the Podcast) Episode 249

Episode 249 : Short Cunt? Well, I’ve got the perfect dick for ya. Topic: Livesays Episode 2 Music on Episode 249: Nervecell – standard metal. And I mean that as a yard stick measurement and not to quantify the ability of this band. If I say speedy metal, fast drums, growled vocals, it’s a qualifier not a judgement. That long growl at the opening of “All eyes on them”, how the hell do people do that? To growl sing is tough enough but to hold it for any period of time seems impossible to me. I hate to use the title track from a release for the song on the show, it makes it look like I don’t care, and that I just picked the most obvious song. But the title song has got the goods and shows the band in its best light. Good guitar opening. Double switched off vocals. Speedy but not out of control. I wish the rest of the album was like it. Listen from “Psychogenocide” on, best parts of the LP. Last part of the album is the best. An instrumental. A bit more flow. Triathalon – (Review Coming Later) Ides of Gemini -rock/metal bedding with dreamy female vocals. By dreamy I don’t mean starry eyed left of center dew drop bullshit. Just floating, doubled. Hard to distinguish between the songs, they all sound the same. Bedrock of guitar & drums (mixed low)not intruding upon etheral female vocals. With some flourishes of harmony or doubling of vocals. That’s all there is to say, really. Not bad, but kind of repetitive. I like what they are trying for, and I appreciate that it’s not something you hear much of, but an EP of five songs would have been a good starter. Like I said, not bad or awful in any way, just a bit repetitive from song to song.

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 248

SLTM (The Podcast) Episode 248 “I don’t like the smell of my own balls” Todays Topic: Tired of hearing the same songs from the same bands on the radio? We list a few good bands whose songs need to be refreshed. Music From: Ivadell– First song starts out heavy, but wait around cause that’s not what your getting. What did you order? The fish? The halibut steaks? Okay. Well this is a variation on that then. Sure it’s not the steaks , but its still good and very filling. Try the chocolate mouse, it’s to die for or something. “Unknown Divide” puts a upbeat kicky pop song around the powerful idea of seperation. Is it easier to swallow that way? I doubt it. Nice chiming guitars at the end. The divide is too far, we can never bridge this gap. In life, love, politics, whatever it is there is no hope. Sorxe – as if, at least for the first few songs, Faith No More released KING FOR A DAY, with Jim Martin still on guitar and Mike Patton forgetting the more subtle parts of his repitoire that made Angel Dust such a classic album. I can’t really concentrate, there’s a lady from down the block who’s washing her car wearing only her night shirt. Wow is she getting soapy. You can’t clean a car that way. Wait, what was I talking about? Faith No More’s great album ANGEL DUST? No wait, Sorxe. “Make it so” This song makes me think of what would have happened if PIL had turned towards metal. Almost sounds like a different band. “Make it so” is like 3 different songs. How does that work? How do you decide to make a 9 minute song instead of three 3 minutes songs? What’s best? Don’t know. Toadies: what we would find almost mundane, but unfairly so, in early adulthood we embrace in our twilight years. The Toadies have been around since the 90’s. They had a big hit, and while they may never reach those peaks again, who cares. Are they happy making music ? Do they enjoy what they do? That’s would should matter. They are the kind of band that while you may not buy every single album, you find comfort in knowing they are still making music. And that you can pick up and leave, then rejoin when you want. A bit selfish, sure , but isn’t that how we want life...
