  • Cool band alert...

    So I'm talking to a buddy from *.ca about how disappointed I am in the new New Pornographers album that came out this week, and he says to me "Dude, have you heard the new Novillero disc?"

    Um....no?

    It's a doozy. Lots of piano/vintage organ. Horn sections. Soulful vocals. Bright harmonies. Killer melodic hooks. Big bass lines that sound right from the Stranglers catalog.

    A couple of full length songs:

    http://www.novillero.net/Aptitude.mp3

    And a couple of clips:

    http://audio.notlame.com/sounds04/cdnovillero105.mp3 (the song is "Morally Deficient Business")
    http://audio.notlame.com/sounds04/cdnovillero104.mp3 (the song is "Abbey")

    I'm really, really digging this a ton. It'll be hard to scare up a physical copy of this disc in the States, since it hasn't been released here yet. iTunes, however does have it in all it's glory, and totally justifies having iTunes to get to it.
    I like cheese.

    I'm assuming this is on 'Aim Right for the Holes in Their Lives'?

        ...sadly, the only copy I have is the one I bought from iTunes two days ago, so it has their copy-protection on it. I've tried a bunch of cracks that are supposed to be able to hack that, but none have been satisfactory.

          Did you try the 'burn it to disc and rip it back on to hard drive' crack?

                I'm at work trying to wrap up some paperwork, and I think I'm on my 4th-straight listen of this album, start-to-finish.

                Holy shit is it good.

                For instance, a song like "Gaining Ground/Losing Sight" has a twisty-cool melody line that is totally Shins-like...but the lyrics sound like they cribbed them right from some wacky leftist rant by Gang Of Four, and then sung by the dude from Interpol. Gotta love being at work at 1 in the morning and listening to a song exhorting you to not to forgo living a good life in slavery to a career, huh? Oh, and then there's the crazy Memphis soul horns that kick in on the chorus. Damn.

                "Close your mouth and open up your eyes
                Cause you're gaining ground but losing sight!"

                Fuck yeah.
