Yeah but I need to listen to their album more, I think. I feel like if I had been an “impressionable teen” in 2003 when their album dropped it would have been “really meaningful to me” but it’s always harder to ‘retroactively get into bands that are very tied to a specific time/scene/place.’
can u recommend some bands similar to iceage/bikini kill in terms of aggression..?
Those bands are really nothing like each other except, I guess, in the sense that they’re vaguely “punk.” In terms of attitude and ideology and cultural context and musical approach the time/place in which they are/were active, there’s a huge difference. I could virtually recommend anything that’s ever been called punk music. I’m not sure how helpful I can be.
My new pop band LONER CHIC is playing our first Connecticut show at Cafe Nine in New Haven THIS WEDNESDAY, 4/16. Margene Without Borders and our great friends in MILKSHAKES are playing as well! Show starts at 9 PM.
That’s a really hard question. None of his albums have been consistently perfect but I would say Down Colorful Hill and Rollercoaster come the closest. Ghosts of the Great Highway and Benji are both great as far as Sun Kil Moon material goes.
