2. "Levitate" - I D A H O (nuf said)

I'd like to announce a new motion to ban any further comments from JK, and restrict any future comments from rabble-rousers like him. All in favour?

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from JKJan 13 2002 - 20:11

Seems like we dont have any restrictions as to how many bands we could possibly list, since we live in a Democracy. God Bless America and its effects on the Idaho message board!!!

oh, it's now ten best.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from spudboyJan 12 2002 - 03:33

my 10 best for 2001 (particular order no in):

the shins- oh inverted world

the minders- golden street

the strokes- is this it (cram you if ya don't like it!!)

people under the stairs- question in the form of an answer (hip hop (check it out if your a fan of old school/underground)

new pornographers- mass romantic

the shins- when i goose step/the gloating sun 7"

queens of the stone age- R (or X if you got the vinyl)

love as laughter- shit i can't think of what it's called

okay that's only eight, but . . . anything from IDAHO.

speaking of which, i just got my ticket to see IDAHO at Cafe Du Nord in S.F. if i get the chance to meet jeff, i will most certainly be reprimanding him for having CDs and 7" in the discography THAT A COMPLETIST LIKE ME DOESN'T HAVE!! AND I MUST!!
Just recently got the Bayonet 10" from the man himself. i friggin' love it. so i guess that will be my final entry and since i just got it, it seems like a new release to me.

IDAHO- Bayonet ep

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from adamJan 09 2002 - 08:26

Although I've never found Godspeed even
remotely compelling either, so there you go. I do like what I've heard from the Rachels (which is ver little).
Anyone heard of the new pornagraphers? Pretty cool stuff....

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from JKDec 31 2001 - 13:21

Yeah, Mark Linkus is quite brilliant (Sparklehorse), did you know he O.D.d on anti-depressants just before the release of Good Morning Spider? He could barely walk and talk for awhile, then when his voice came back, he played quite a few shows in a wheelchair. I'm pretty sure he's OK now. I love his first one, Vivadixiesubmarinetransmissionplot. Quite a tearjerker. The best lyrics on it are... "We were both standing in your mothers living room, sweating up a storm in that terrible month of June, and the sweat rolled down your cheek and into your mouth, I knew that this must have been a dream cause your mother would never let me in her house. You are the most beautiful widow in town. (verse 2). Many years later in the glassy month of December, I stood with my hands in my pockets tryin to avoid, a shiny wedding portrait hangin on that old woman's wall, cause I knew youd be wearin a smile that be to painful to look upon. You are the most beautiful widow in town." OR THESE..." She laid her head on my chest, as the sun burned down the west, theres still one thing we still got, its one last dance in this parking lot, I got a heart of darkness, then she woke up to a fire, and the flames kept dancin higher, Satan would laugh at her screams, then she woke up from her dreams, oh yeah I got a heart of darkness."

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from ChrisDec 31 2001 - 00:23

Being out of work most of the year, I haven't been able to buy a lot of new releases...

In no particular order

Low Things We Lost in the Fire

just a great album, they seem to be getting better and better musically.

Luke Haines The Oliver Twist Manifesto

The man behind The Auteurs, Baader Meinhof, and Black Box Recorder releases another gem. Hasn't been released domesticly and probably never will. "Discomania" is so catchy, it could be played on radio if there was any justice in the world.

Momus Folktronic

In a hundred years from now, when scholars study our music, I believe Nick Currie will get a few paragraphs.

Destroyer Streethawk: A Seduction

Just buy it.
(Disclaimer: If you absolutely hate Robyn Hitchcock's voice, don't. Daniel Bejar sounds a little nasal - I mean similar)

Sparklehorse It's A Wonderful Life

A few clunkers but the good tracks more than make up for it. Just a great sounding record. Beautifully produced with interesting arrangements and instramentation. Listening to this record reminds me why I love music so much.


I am going to commit heresy here and share with the Idaho community my reasons for omitting Levitate.
Let me begin by stating that I believe Jeff to have produced a sufficient body of songs to merit the term genius. Although the album is good and explores much new ground, I am a little concerned about Jeff's complete indifference to selling records. There is nothing on the album which could ever be played on a commercial radio station. Maybe Jeff is content with that. If he has no ambition to sell records, that is his choice. As a selfish fan however, I want to see Idaho enjoy enough success that Jeff can continue to make records for years to come. I guess another way of putting it is that if I wanted to turn someone on to Idaho, I wouldn't play Levitate for them.
That said, I am a loyal fan and I will continue to buy every release that they put out.
Also, I think that we should all pause and give thanks to Jeff and Co. for making the CD available to fans before the release date. There are very few artists out there that devote that kind of time and consideration to fans.
I received not one, but two calls to make sure I got my copy when the mail got all messed up during the 9/11 disaster. That is pretty good customer service for my $15.


RE: 5 best records 2001? | from D...Dec 28 2001 - 14:05

Hmmm.. Best five records:

1) Bright Eyes "Fevers and Mirrors" (Saddle Creek)

2) Clairvoyants "Your New Boundaries" (Badman/WishingTree)

3) Jr Corduroy "Slo Fi" (Good To Burn)

4) Rebecca Gates "Ruby Series" (Badman)

5) Spoon "Girls Can Tell" (Merge)

D...

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from Seth HowardDec 28 2001 - 02:16

Yes. Rebecca Gates was in The Spinanes. Her solo album "Ruby Series" came out on the Badman label earlier this year. If you like the mellower moments on "Arches and Aisles", you'll probably dig it.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from JKDec 27 2001 - 01:59

Is Rebecca Gates from The Spinanes, cause thats another good band that went under. She lives in Chicago, (The Spinanes Rebecca), but she started it in Seattle, they were on SubPop in the mid 90s. Check out the album STRAND, chocked full of real emotion and feel, as well as great musicianship. I just cant figure out if thats her. Eeh, oh well.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from Seth HowardDec 27 2001 - 01:08

Cool Alan. I really like that Rebecca Gates album. She put on an awesome show here in Seattle.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from ECS.Dec 26 2001 - 15:06

The Faint - Danse Macabre

Bright Eyes - Fevers and Mirrors

Your Precious You - Test Pattern

Hayden - Skyscrape... er... National Park

Idaho

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from chris kennedyDec 25 2001 - 08:27

I'll second the New Order choice. Just found it used and thought, "What the hell." Maybe the best "reunion" record of all time. I'm also warming up to Tindersticks' can our love..., though not a top five choice; maybe top ten or fifteen.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from JKDec 25 2001 - 06:53

OK Alan, thats more than 5, but damn good choices I must say.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from alan kyleDec 25 2001 - 06:13

I forgot to mention the tremendous Rebecca Gates, Whiskeytown, Bonnie Prince Billy,REM, Hem, Howie Beck, Sparklehorse, PJ Harvey.
I should be shot for forgetting these gems!!

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from alan kyleDec 25 2001 - 06:06

1. IDAHO-levitate

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from jerDec 24 2001 - 02:29

good albums in 2001? kind of a sad year for music, but a few gems out there- - (in no particular order...)
NEW ORDER-get ready (listen to it 3 times,, then you will like it)
VAPORTRAIL- the angel has landed (a shoegazery/red house painters-ish band from san francisco)
COLDPLAY- parachutes- maybe it came out at the end of last year, but i don't care
LOW- things we lost in the fire- AWESOME.

i guess there was more, but most bands just put out mediocre reruns of their old albums--

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from eraserheadDec 23 2001 - 21:29

trev, you got some great taste.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from trevDec 23 2001 - 20:35

Other than Levitate, and off the top of my head:

1) Newness Ends- The New Year. Bedhead was one of favorite bands- anyone on this board should try to listen to a copy of their last album, Transaction De Novo. New Year is much peppier, but in a good way.

2) Rock Action- Mogwai. Bought Young Team, liked it a lot, but then saw them reproduce the album perfectly live, and stopped liking it. Ignored all subsequent releases until I heard Rock Action at a friend's place. Loved it, bought it, won't go see them live anymore.

3) Leaves Turn Inside You- Unwound. A big departure for one of the northwest's best bands but sounds great.

4) Photo Album- Death Cab For Cutie. Can someone explain the name of this to me? Not that it matters- DCFC gets better with every record.

5) Scar- Joe Henry. Ornette Coleman and Marc Ribot on the same album. I thought I was the only person with suck vision.

Guilty Pleasure- The Faint, Danse Macabre. I feel bad, but every time I hear this gene splice between Gary Numan (who rules) and Dead Or Alive, I am forced to get up and shake my ass around the room. I'm going to be sorry I posted this because a) I am so sick of this 80's revival, and b) these guys are going to be huge. In the impending deluge that is inevitable, I'm sure I will be so sick of them that I will have wished I had never heard the record. But for now I'm dancing like a fool.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from JKDec 19 2001 - 20:39

I take one thing back....I said I had'nt heard anything interesting this year, but i have to give it to The Doves.....a few really great songs.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from JKDec 19 2001 - 20:35

The only thing Ive heard that was interesting, considering I havent yet heard Idaho's newest, was a group called Illyah Kuryahkin. Is a pseudonym that represents a charachter on a Russian spy program aired in the Ukraine. Anyways, the guy, who does the music himself, is a brilliant poet and musician, as well as recently obtaining his Phd in French. Its erie and mystical much like Idaho, and the vocals are whispery, with many modulations and changes. The label is called Arena Rock Recording Company, which is obviously a joke, cause its quite underground (though Harvey Danger and Super (something) started there). Man, Im serious, if you live in a big town, go to the best underground record store and get Illyah Kuryahkin 30cabminute or his lo fi older stuff CountNoCount. BLOW YER MIND!!!!! ( no, I dont work for them, so dont try to say that, its just my opinion). Oh, I havent yet heard anything good this year, which is sad, too many independent labels either bought up or folding due to mass media. Oh yeah, poor Matador Recs. great till 95, when Capitol bought them up and basterdized it to shreads. Too many great artists left, Stereolab, Bailter Space, Gawd, ruined!!!!!!!!

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from Brad HaywoodDec 14 2001 - 14:59

I'm changing mine.

Idaho is now #3. A solid #3 though, right behind Pernice Brothers and White Stripes.

for lists of course now MINE LISTINGS!

7) broadway mule of DISCO time

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from KPDec 10 2001 - 14:12

You can listen to "Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" in it's entirety on Wilco's site. Apparently the record will be released in early 2002 by Nonesuch. Sounds like a keeper. Jim O'Rourke did a fine job...

http://www.wilcoworld.net/road.html#

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from andrewDec 09 2001 - 10:48

My five would be...
1 Jim O'Rourke "Insignificance"
2 Papa M "Whatever,Mortal"
3 Pernice Bros "The World Won't End"
4 Bonnie Prince Billy "Ease Down The Road"
5 (Smog) "Rain On Lens"
Another great year for Drag City.Shame about the Wilco record which I was looking forward to.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from eraserheadDec 07 2001 - 18:41

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from susan331Dec 07 2001 - 15:18

Psst, Eraserhead: Did you mean Mobilize? If I remember correctly Ladies' Love Oracle came out last year. Not to be obnoxiously anal-retentive, but Grant's from my hood -- gotta look out for your peeps.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from Brad HaywoodDec 07 2001 - 12:37

Newness Ends is fantastic. Reconstruction, Gasoline and the title track are all fantastic

Hayden's new one is not as good as I would have liked. Fairly monotonous. I'm reviewing it for Pitchfork soon, so look for it if you care.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from adamDec 06 2001 - 18:42

He sure doesn't look like a Bubba......

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from Seth HowardDec 06 2001 - 18:11

How could you not love a band with a member named Bubba?

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from adamDec 06 2001 - 15:47

Yeah, that New Year record is amazing. I love the Kadane brothers guitarwork. Very nice stuff..........

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from Seth HowardDec 06 2001 - 15:18

Well - besides "Levitate" I'll go with:

1: Mark Eitzel - The Invisible Man

2: The New Year - Newness Ends

3: Kings of Convenience - Quiet is the New Loud

4: Low - Things We Lost in the Fire

5: Idlewild - 100 Broken Windows

runners up:

Creeper Lagoon
Fugazi
Spiritualized
Mark Kozelek
Burning Airlines
Death Cab For Cutie
Rebecca Gates
American Analog Set

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from DeMiloDec 03 2001 - 05:47

Ahh yes: tell me what you think when that new Hayden arrives: "The closer I get" is my favourite intoxicated strumming around the campfire song!

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from Brad HaywoodDec 02 2001 - 18:56

1) Pernice Brothers, "World Won't End"; 2) White Stripes, "White Blood Cells"; 3) The Microphones "The Glow Pt 2"; 4) The Shins "Oh, Inverted World"... and I anticipate loving Hayden's "Skyscraper National Park" once I receive it in the mail. "Levitate" is close -- somewhere from 5-9, methinks. Great stuff, tho.

I also think that Jeff ought to consider touring with Hayden. Canadians love Hayden, and Jeff plays such similar music that I think they'd fall in love with Idaho as well. Or better yet, play a show in NYC with Hayden. I would promise my attendance.

Rose Thomas is really good, too. Angelic voice on that girl. She has a new disc coming out in January. Good for fans of Idaho.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from dcsDec 01 2001 - 15:23

Is the Stina Nordenstam an import? I love her earlier work but didn't know about the new release.

IDAHO "Levitate", cause IDAHO FOREVER
STINA NORDENSTAM "This Is Stina" cause i'm in love with her
BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB "Black Rebel Motorcycle Club" cause my band is calling "THE MOTORCYCLE BOY REIGNS" and they play f@#~'good rock'n'roll
MOGWAÏ "Rock Action" cause they're really modern and full of magnificent classicism. Imperial.
And fith but not least "Saturday Night Fry Chicken" from the genius of SOUL JAZZ RECORDS. Thanks you.

Santa Claus may be weird, but it

my Christmas wish. Thanks for the
good news about Alas.

Admittedly, I haven't done my home-
work, so this is based on a less
than inclusive sampling of discs,
which I hope won't perpetuate the
lazy rock critic grouping of AMC,
RHP, and Idaho: Eitzel, The
Invisible Man; Kozelek, What's Next to the Moon; Idaho, Levitate; Doves,
Lost Souls; Bjork, Vespertine.
Truth is, I mostly listen to Year
After Year, This Way Out, etc. Still can't get my hands on Alas, though. I'm considering a Watergate style
break-in to the Idaho studios to
steal the master. I suggest height-
ening your security.

RE: 5 best records 2001? | from christianNov 27 2001 - 05:21

soul whirling somewhere - please sennd help, arnold - bahama, guided by voices - isolation drills, idaho - levitate, you am I - dress me slowly.
