Chan Marshall Has Me Crushing!!!

OhNo!

TRIBE Member


She has been awesome for so long now,but with the release of 'the greatest',which i consider not only the best album of 2006 but one of the best all-time recordings,the girl has me crushing.

i hate jenny lewis and all her perky annoying self-involved antics and hope some day chan will crush her and those of her ilkage with her sonic suicide balladry,that and a 12-string acoustic over their bubbly heads.


Chan,you have me crushing hard!

Why'd you have to cancel your NA tour dates?

i love chan, and i love her cover of "schizophrenia". simply beautiful.
but i disagree with you about jenny lewis. her stuff with the watson twins is not so great, but rilo kiley have some decent tunes. plus she starred in "the wizard" for christ sake.

haha!

sara slean?

give me a fucking break,no offense to her but her songwriting style is miles away from being as haunting and at the same time beautiful as chans'.

and chans' voice stomps all over sara sleans.

How The Fuck Have People Not Heard Of This Beautiful Creature Yet?



p.s.

FUCK JENNY LEWIS!

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind or waterfall could stop me
And then came the rush of the flood
The stars at night turned you to dust

Melt me down
To big black armour
Leave no trace
Of grace
Just in your honor
Lower me down
That corporate slob
Make a watch
For a space in town
For the lack of the drugs
My faith had been sleeping
Lower me down
In the end
Secure the grounds
For the later parade

Once I wanted to be the greatest
Two faced, sad little rock
When things I couldn't explain
Any feelings
Lower me down
In the end
Secure the grounds
For the lack of the drugs
My faith had been sleeping
For the later parade

Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind or water fall could stop me
And then came the rush of the flood
The stars at night turned you to dust

ok, so I'm trying to find some stuff on this girl, cause I'm a music fanatic and I always go looking for stuff if I hear people talking positively about it.

anyway, I didn't find anything on itunes or the torrent site I use....google lead me to some stuff by "cat power"


is that what I"m looking for?


cat power? *suspicious*

yeah,damon....she's been around for years...her stock has gone up considerably in the span of a few albums due to critical acclaim

surprising that a standard torrent site wouldn't have her stuff
:confused:

oh, they have like a hundred cat power albums.


I just didn't know she was from cat power....never heard of her...but, you can't stay on top of everything.


what's a good album or two?


they have an 8 album package there too....maybe I'll get that. :)

I like you are free...the album that really sets her apart from her contemporaries...it's stripped of a lot of what gave previous power LPs their glow and you're left with a minimal album that really is a perfect showcase for her voice...werewolf still gives me goosebumps:)

hmmm, hype....this sounds like good studio music (I have to choose the music for the work environment here)...

I got the 8 album package...amped to hear it.

Damon, I like her, but she's not everyone's taste, I'd listen to a few songs before you download 8 albums! :p

edit: too late

(how the fuck to you download so fast?)

they're coming in now....haven't gotten them yet.

but, they'll be here in an hour or so.....good speed on this one, we have a T1 line here at work.


I'm sure I"ll like it alright, I find the value in nearly all music......

yah, I know...everybody's all, I'm a hip hoper, or I'm into techno, and that's IT!


phesh....there was a guy in the studio who liked hip hop, and not much else, freaked out when I put on Roy Ayers, said it sucked, until I indicated all the samples from it.

guess if it's good enough for dj premier it's good enough for you chuckle head.


anyway....the cat power if flying in...I'll post a review of it later this aft.
