    Gonna see Sumac with Oxbow tomorrow night, hope dude's vocals aren't too high in the mix. They kinda bug me.

    Wire - Silver/Lead
    Curtis Mayfield - Sweet Excorcist
    Pink Floyd - Mooed Music (BBC sessions boot from just before Atom Heart Mother).

    Captain Fantastic - not very good. Unsure of what this movie was supposed to be. Too dark and self-serious to be a dysfunctional family road story; is it an elegy to, or a critique of, the hippie/dropout/bush family fantasy? And while there is a solid cast all the way through, it got kind of hard to care about any of them after a while. By the time Viggo's character has his existential crisis, it didn't seem to have much weight. Plus some "that wouldn't have really happened" bits, and finally a scene that about ruins what's left of the movie. Feh.

    @jonbehm Really? Can you get the 'big' jar there? (i.e. 30g)

    I didn't know there was a big jar. These are the regular size jars.

    To call it synth-pop, like a lot of people are, doesn't quite seem to nail it.

    I really know next to nothing about their back catalog, and there seems to be a lot of it.
    The new one sounded okay with the gloom outside.

    Trappist Afterland - God's Green Earth & Like A Beehive, The Hill Was Alive - "Gnostic folk" from Australia, in a similar vein to Current 93 at times (Tibet himself was praising them online). Mixes in Eastern drone instruments with the usual acoustic guitar, flute etc. Very good.

    Ulver - The Assassination of Julius Ceasar
