This project is starting to drive me crazy. I am used to going on jags listening to one band, especially something I'm familiar with and diving into bootlegs or an album of theirs I never really got into. Or finally listening to a band I never paid attention to and going through their whole catalog. But this is a different animal.
Spoon for example. Everyone tells me I should listen to Spoon. I got their new album, I tried quite a few times but it didn't work for me. Someone told me I really had to listen to their old stuff to understand them, and well, I can't. But I don't think I should have to, so I think I'm done with Spoon.
Now I know there's a new album by Ted Leo coming but I can't get it until March and the one song I did hear was actually pretty good, so I'm happy about that. But right now I'm growing bored of Massive Attack and Four Tet.
Plus work has been pretty brutal and I haven't had the time to really listen to all the suggestions I've been getting. I will set aside some time this weekend and grab a few albums. I expect to have some stuff on Monday.
