    I picked up ISWYD today and it's much better than I expected. Although, I can see his fans not liking it as much and if you don't already like him it probably won't change your mind.

    Guests:
    Trent Reznor
    Rob Sonic
    Aesop Rock
    Cage
    Mars Volta
    Cat Power
    Darryl Palumbo

    My day just got a lot better.
    I know I'm probably the only one here who listens to power metal, much less Kamelot, but this is great. Their last album(Black Halo) was in every way awesome and I have high expectations for this one. The artwork for it is strange, but after looking at it for awhile, it's grown on me. I strongly enourage anyone who hasn't heard of this band to check 'em out.

    Edit: And here's what their vocalist had to say about it:

    I absolutely adore Kamelot, and I'm really happy to hear about this. The Black Halo was a masterpiece!

    I wonder if this album will continue the "story" from Epica and TBH?

    I'm pretty sure they wrapped up their "Faust" theme with Serenade, though I may be wrong. Either way, as long as they keep bringing in those guests.

    With the title "Ghost Opera" and the album art, I'm really anticipating a masterpiece of a song from them. Hopefully the music video for it won't be shortened like The Haunting and March of Mephisto.

    It definitely seemed to conclude fairly well, but I didn't previously expect them to continue the story from Epica at all, so you never know.

    Here's hoping for another appearance from Simone Simmons!

    I'm debating if I want my ears to bleed from the new Modest Mouse disc or not. That single, Dashboard, makes me cry.

    Apparently, Trent Reznor is upset about some of the marketing for Year Zero:

    Interestingly, this is the first time he's really talked about "the ARG" or any of its elements openly.

    What's he referring to? Thermo-chrome?

    In accordance with his wishes, I will put it in spoiler tags:





    Also, watch Mute Math's new (first) music video, premiering on YouTube here. It's really cool. One shot, one take, filmed in reverse. I can't imagine how hard it must have been to get that right.

    On Talib Kweli's MySpace, he put up a new song called "Say Something." It's produced by Will.i.Am, features Jean Grae and will be on Ear Drum. You can listen to it here: http://www.myspace.com/talibkweli

    It's pretty good.


    Also, rapper Jin is going to recording a new album. He mentioned on his MySpace blog and said that "this is the most important album so far." Hopefully he'll release it in stores and iTunes instead of his MySpace only(that's what he did with his 3rd LP).

    I disagree completely. He's alot more straight-foward than he's been in the past and you can definately notice alot more instances of him actually writing and trying to construct more "traditional" songs. But even the most un-El songs, such as "Haebas Corpses" or "Drive", still have a decidedly El-P feel to them. "Poisenville Kids" is alot more (directly) personal than I would've ever expected to hear from El and is the most obvious example of substance.

    It's a weird album, to say the least. Apparently this was supposed to be his "adult" album. I'm not sure I even understand what that means, as I don't find anything really juvenile about FANDAM. I do think that "Dear Sirs" is not only a misstep but maybe the worst song of El's career. I'm not sure why it's here, as it sounds like someone trying create an El-P track and failing. Do I like ISWYD more than FANDAM? Yes and no. ISWYD is definately a much easier album to listen to but it's not nearly as interesting as FANDAM.

    Picked these two up for only $20. Along with Kamelot annoucning their new CD, this has been a good month for music for me.

    In indie Hip-Hop news, Murs announced at the Paid Dues Festival that he signed with Warner Bros. Records and was tired of the stuff that is played on the radio. He said that he's still going to make music for the fans, regardless of whether or not he's indie or on a major label. The title for his album is tentatively, Murs For President.


    Also at the same festival, Slug from Atmosphere mentioned that he and Ant have recorded 30 songs for their next Atmosphere album. They're going to narrow the tracks down and get it mixed for the album. No word on the album name or when it's coming out.
