  Thu. 9/12/19 1:01pm zephyr:

Hey Pseu....If you're not already completely familiar with it (I suspect you probably are) for masterful 'recent" pop I highly recommend "Cosmic Candy" by The Orion Experience (2007). He lived in my building in JC and gave me a copy when it was new. I still listen to it. Very solid stuff....

Daniel Johnston killed himself?
Avatar Thu. 9/12/19 1:30pm northguineahills:

I can only find citations of him being designated w/ schizophrenia by the Boston Globe and the New York Press, so, take that w/ a grain of salt.

So far, it seems like a heart attack....

Claypool Lennon are great in concert.

Hey Pseu!!
I was at that Weyes Blood Show! I was tending bar on the 2nd floor
  Thu. 9/12/19 1:37pm Sally J.:

i bet John would think they are
Avatar Thu. 9/12/19 1:37pm B/wad:

This is where i say she reminds me of Aimee Mann. Am I right Pseu???
Avatar Thu. 9/12/19 1:38pm Pseu Braun:

Fletcher, we got cocktails at the downstairs bar. ANOTHER handsome bartender was there and loaded my hendricks with extra!
Avatar Thu. 9/12/19 1:42pm Pseu Braun:

b/wad agreed on a "touch" of aimee, in the nasal passages. Natalie's range is quite beyond though.
  Thu. 9/12/19 1:42pm prudy:

yeah, there's a solemnity about Weyes Blood that just really bothers me. Her voice does recall Aimee Mann, another vocalist I don't care for. But to each his/her own. Freeform forever...
Avatar Thu. 9/12/19 1:43pm Pseu Braun:

Agreed on the solemnity but so much beauty and femininity too
  Thu. 9/12/19 1:46pm Ken B:

Great show today. That Weyes Blood track blew me away. Thanks!
  Thu. 9/12/19 1:46pm Fletchernyc:

You are right about the Aimee Mann comparison... super-apparent live!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 1:50pm Bill in W.O.:

I'm a big Aimee Mann fan, but she doesn't have Ms. Mering's voice. I haven't loved the songs as much as Ms. Mann's, but I've tried because of Pseu's imprimatur. And this Charly Bliss, dang.
Avatar Thu. 9/12/19 1:54pm Pseu Braun:

Not an Aimee fan, respectfully. Natalie is aces above most musicians period. The live show really drove that home.
  Thu. 9/12/19 1:54pm smoochie poo:

Weyes Blood, Cat Power....what’s the difference?
Avatar Thu. 9/12/19 1:56pm Pseu Braun:

Cat Powder. Also great to hear from the incel contig
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 1:59pm Carmichael:

Thanks for the Daniel Johnston, Pseu. May he find some peace in the next life.
  Thu. 9/12/19 2:02pm Fletchernyc:

To be clear, I only heard certain vocal qualities that are similar (timbre?)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 2:06pm Jeezy:

The QUEEN of POP is back!!!! Yaaaay!!! You were missed, PSEU!!! Thanks for making life more bearable again!!
  Thu. 9/12/19 2:09pm Mike Wolf:

Feel like we need yet another man’s opinion on Weyes Blood, so

She’s great. I love the new record, I think she’s made a unique path from underground bedroom psychedelia (which I also really liked) to her current singer-songwriter-orchestrator mode.

I also think female singers are about 10,000x more likely to be compared to one another (or, more accurately, to Cat Power) based on as little as a vocal inflection than male singers are.
Avatar Thu. 9/12/19 2:15pm Pseu Braun:

You get no argument here. Indie rock geezers see above
  Thu. 9/12/19 2:16pm prudy:

for the record, I don't think Weyes Blood sounds anything like Cat Power. I like the rawness of some of Cat Power's work. Weye's Blood is way overproduced IMO...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 2:16pm Bill in W.O.:

@MW paragraph 3 - yup. Intuitively, you'd think it'd be the opposite.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 2:17pm Carmichael:

YESSS! The Rutles, just like my avatar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 2:19pm steveo:

hello; i'm probably a bad person because sometimes I can't tell the rutles from all non-ironic beatle copycat bands (and why aren't there two T's?)
  Thu. 9/12/19 2:19pm Fletchernyc:

I always thought the Beatles sounded like these guys
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 2:19pm Bill in W.O.:

Ringo and Cat Power...can't distinguish - same wig
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 2:20pm Krys O.:

I think that Weyes Blood has a similar quality to Jennifer Warnes when she just went by Jennifer and was on the Smothers Brothers show. I admire Natalie Mering.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 2:21pm Carmichael:

Wow, solo Colin Blunstone. You're killin' it, Pseu!
  Thu. 9/12/19 2:21pm Ken B:

And now Blunstone! wowza
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 2:21pm Krys O.:

Ooh, gotta listen to my Colin Blunstone albums when I get home.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 9/12/19 2:25pm Carmichael:

Ken Sharp sounds like Marc Bolan.

Or maybe Sweet.

  Thu. 9/12/19 2:45pm Ochre Ogre:

@Carmichael- Haw! Maple trees remind me of syrup.
Avatar Thu. 9/12/19 2:46pm SSS:

A rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet. Comparisons of smells or sounds are difficult to avoid because either will come when they are triggered from something that already got into our head as a pleasant or otherwise, formed memory.
  Thu. 9/12/19 2:46pm Fletchernyc:

Pseu has More Than a Feeling about comparisons.

Oh yes, and some of my favorite pass times are camp humor, simple goofiness and plain crazy ramblin'.
