Trail of dead
I've been slacking this week on the blog especially when considering all the new music I heard this past week. I've been kind of busy I suppose. I did buy some drums so thats kind of cool, I have them mostly setup minus a thing or two.
I've been listening to the new Beck, Hold Steady, Four Tet, Mercury Rev, Arab Strap, and Cold War Kids but now I finally found the time to listen to the new the new Trail of Dead album So Divided. I'm liking it more than the previous album Worlds Apart but not nearly as much as the album before that, Source Tags & Codes. The new album features couple of guests including King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto and Dresden Dolls vocalist and pianist Amanda Palmer.
From Billboard: "So Divided" is the follow-up to 2005's "Worlds Apart," which has sold less than half of "Source Tags." "I put everything I had into that record, and recording it was a miserable ordeal," group member Conrad Keely told Billboard.com in July. "After its reception I was pretty much ready to retire from music and find another career, convinced that I wanted nothing more to do with making music for anyone. But when we started this new album, which was meant to be an EP, I had a different attitude. Mainly, I tried not to care at all, and approach it with a more 'I don't give a f*ck' outlook."
The album really is worth checking out, expect it in stores November 14th.
