For Fans of Sebadoh (Sebadoh vs. Pavement) [28 Aug 2007|03:20pm]

I notice that on a lot of indie rock forums no one ever mentions Sebadoh, has anyone else noticed that? That alone kind of bugs me, but what bugs me even more is when people say how great Pavement was. I don't know why but in my head there is this competition between Sebadoh and Pavement. Like both bands started out kind of on the same level, came from a similar place, and were highly praised and recognized within the indie rock world as archetypes of their genre, but then at some point, I guess after Harmacy was released, lots of people sort of abandoned Sebadoh and embraced Pavement as the most important indie rock band of the 90's, leaving Sebadoh in the dust. And by the time "The Sebadoh" came out, people didn't even give the album half a chance before dismissing it as rubbish. It felt like the indie community was completely done with Sebadoh, while Pavement seemed to be the blessed sons who could do no wrong.
I actually used to really like Pavement but the more they were hailed as producing some of the best albums of the 90's and nobody even mentioned Sebadoh, the more I started to dislike them. Because frankly I don't think Steve Malkmus is as good or as interesting of a songwriter as Lou and he's not as likeable personality-wise to me either. He always seemed kind of arrogant and smug to me. Maybe my perception is just completely off about this. But I was wondering if anyone else feels this way about Pavement and Sebadoh.

In an effort to help revive... [07 Feb 2007|11:44pm]

So even though Rosie Thomas has left the Sub Pop label, has anyone else gotten "These Friends of Mine" online?
I do love it dearly- Rosie, Dennison and Sujan- there is no bad there.

before the darkness falls [06 Apr 2006|11:50pm]


if you ask damien jurado, he'll tell you point blank that it's in the dark where you'll find us all. damien is an urban-folk singer storyteller, giving a steady balance of the saddest and darkest stories you've ever heard. its like eavesdropping on something that was never meant to be heard. its always best when its just him and the acoustic guitar. his voice is a theatrical instrument all in itself, a real natural depth mixed with tones of pure collectivity and beauty.

listen to this: amateur night


undercovered: what song did you listen to today over and over again?

wages of sin by damien jurado & rosie thomas

undercovered: what was it that got you?

xmusicisartx: the way their voices cried

i was running down that broken path
with the devil snapping at my heels
i tried so hard
so hard in every way
swore someday id grow up, just throw it all away

both living in seattle, rosie thomas and damien jurado made a duet of "wages of sin" for sub-pop's 2001 compilation badlands: a tribute to bruce springsteen. this song is quite simplistic in the sense that the two of them enjoy collaborating with each other, but after another listen, its hard to not notice each of their personalities sadly shining through and to feel what their giving -- magically it just works.

a song request... [13 Mar 2006|01:24pm]

i'm thinking this might be a longshot...but...

in '98, subpop released a 7" single in their singles club by team dresch and longstocking. it's out of print.

does anyone have an mp3 of the longstocking song from that 7"? it's called "never nowhere."

PLEASE! thank you!

I just joined like... just now. Basically because I realised that I haven't heard a band from subpop that I don't like.

uhm, and I got Arlo 'Stab The Unstoppable Hero' for Christmas and it is fan-bloody-tastic.
