You forgot the new Beulah on Sept. 11, the new Superchunk on Sept. 18 and the newest "buzz" band, The Strokes, on Sept. 25.
X remasters? Whatever happened to the Replacements remasters that were announced for the end of July?

the new Superchunk on Sept. 18
And don't forget the new Fugazi album schedule for October.
Hey Mark, are you actually looking forward to the new Superchunk record? Just curious, wasn't sure if they had a wide appeal any longer.
I guess I've just been disappointed, I found Indoor Living to be a bit luke-warm and never bothered buying Come Pick Me Up after I heard the horn section (ugh).
Something about Superchunk circa "Here's where the strings..." really appealed to me, serious punch and a vast array of interesting guitar work.
It seems post 1995 that they have fallen victim to the same issue that falls many bands of the genre; they convince themselves that they have "conquered" rock music- allow themselves to believe they have achieved everything possible within the sturucture of Bass/Drum/Guitar/Vocal and set out to "expand" with horns and strings, and instead just become bloated images of their former selves.
The ironic part is, and correct me if I misunderstood, the song "Here's where the strings come in" was in direct opposition and even making fun of bands like the Smashing Pumpkins who felt they had "advanced beyond" rock and so they had to add an orchestra.
And here's where the strings come in...
indeed.

you're right about that Vince. Mac has even make fun of the Smashing Pumpkins in a lot of interviews about their "orchestrization" and then they go do the same thing on some of their songs (albeit on a much smaller scale). they're still one of my favorite bands of the 90's (Incidental Music and On The Mouth being my favorites) but they've definately lost something and i fear it will probably get worse. by the way, did you hear that Cursive has added a cello?

Speaking of the Pumpkins (may they rest in pieces), their new greatest hits album, titled, uh, "Greatest Hits", is due this fall--November 6 is the date I've heard. It will be released both as a single CD and a limited-edition two-CD set. One disc will be the Greatest Hits CD, and the other CD will be a bunch of b-sides and rarities from the Mellon Collie, Adore, and Machina sessions--basically a sequel to Pisces Iscariot. It will be called "Judas O Riley".
Also, the new Wilco album is called "Yankee Foxtrot Hotel", and it doesn't have a release date yet, but hopefully it will be out before the end of the year.

The Powerman 5000 album for release on August 28th is postponed.
It'll be out Feb. 2002.
Vince,
Is the new Fugazi album all new material? The only thing I've heard about is their DVD release.

It's sad. Superchunk was always my example when discussing bands who understood that rock was not dead- bands who took the same basic formula and made it interesting, and even heartbreaking, again. When Mac spit out the line "and here's where the strings come in" it dripped with so much sarcasm as to completely sum up everything I was feeling about rock at the time.
Everything I was struggling against as a musician at that time was wrapped up in that statement-- bands like the smashing pumpkins had once again drug rock music a little towards the bloated that "alternative" or whatever was combatting in the first place.
It's been sad to see a band like superchunk get old and struggle to remain interesting. Once you reach a certain age, honestly, the passion to write interesting "rock" music is gone- and aging musicians who find their validity slipping away try to throw instrumentation/exotic influences at the problem because they simply don't have the energy or the "angst" to keep up in a kids game. As a result a band like Superchunk, who could rock you under a table any day of the week, add a horn section or orchestration to cover up for a lack of new ideas.
Seeing Burning Airlines play last month was equaly heartbreaking. To recall what an AMAZING band Jawbox was and to take in the new-wavy showtune rock of Burning Airline, ugh, was just too much for me to take. Of course, they've added keyboards, a second guitarist- and I wouldn't be suprised to see a percussionist on their next tour.
quote: by the way, did you hear that Cursive has added a cello?[/quote]
Seriously?
Although I guess I can live with cello from time to time in rock- mostly because the standard rock formula doesn't allow for a ton of clean sustain sound- the kind of sound a bowed instrument gives you. As long as cello stays a support instrument, I can live with the occassional cello parts, expecially in "pretty rock" bands, or more experimental bands like mogwai.
quote: Is the new Fugazi album all new material? The only thing I've heard about is their DVD release.[/quote]
Yep, new material. Actually, the album will include the first recorded release of "Furniture", a song that they've been playing since 88 or so (it's featured in Instrument at one point). So I guess it's new material and one really old song.
I'm curious how this album will sound. Again, Ian is over (or rapidly approaching) 40 at this point, and as I mentioned before, rock is really a kids game. Fugazi have managed to keep pumping out interesting stuff- but I think I'd be lying if I said I enjoyed "End Hits" or even "Red Medicine" as much as "In on the kill taker" or "Repeater". The aged fugazi can't hold a candle to their youthful version- but hopefully they can make up with interesting songwriting what they've lost in youthful passion and anger.
time will tell.
Vince
PS: Not to hijack this discussion, but can anyone think of bands that are likely successors to the thrones held by bands like Fugazi, Superchunk, Pavement, Sonic Youth, Jawbox, SDRE, etc? Seems like there are bunches of cool bands around, but none I could see dominating their musical landscape and being 100% trendsetters like Fugazi, for example.

Is there a date for the premiere of Echobrain, Jason Newstead's new band? The band sounds pretty cool, not at all heavy metal like you would think considering Newstead's involvment. I can't get a good bead on their singer though. He sounds a litte weak.

Althought I knew about the release dates, I'm completely stoked about the live Phish releases. I've been impatiently waiting on these for months. If your not familiar with this band you must check them out. Completely original jam band. I've been a faithfull phan for years!

Vince,
How funny that you respond to my Superchunk post-- I'm listening to the "Late Century Dream" single EP right now. I like Indoor Living and really dig Come Pick Me Up-- unlike so many bands, which just mine the same material, you can hear Superchunk mature over their releases, which isn't such a bad thing (I like Mac's Portastatic as well). The new single is very hushed (and surprisingly heavy on the Mellotron, but B-side "Becoming a Spark" has the same great Chunk urgency.
Fugazi, on the other hand, sort went in reverse for me; when replacing a bunch of CDs that were stolen in June, I decided not to replace End Hits or Red Medicine (I never had Instrument)-- I just didn't listen to them and the records never had the same place in my heart like Repeater, which I remember realizing This Album IS For Me when I went and saw them live in Toledo one summer home from college. The arrangements are too disjointed and deliberately unmelodic anymore. I still give Ian props for never changing his stance and staying truly independent all these years; Fugazi, like Superchunk, plays what they want and aren't bullied around by record company slugs.
I think that there are some bands that are trailblazers today, but it seems that most new musicians take an easy route toward whatever's "popular," with rap/metal being the new thing. I like the trend towards garage rock, with bands like the White Stripes, the Strokes, the Detroit Cobras and the Greenhornes pumping out stripped down skronk that sounds primal and real. I'll stick up for Elephant Six bands like Beulah, Apples in Stereo and Neutral Milk Hotel who subvert traditional pop sounds. And there will always be jagged rock sounds; bands like Gang of Four have given way to Built To Spill and Spoon.
Bands like Guided By Voices, Yo La Tengo and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds still seem essential, however, even as the music softens or becomes more mainstream as these bands hit the ten or fifteen year mark in their careers.

Thanks for mentioning the Orbital release, Greg. You've reminded me how mediocre it is

I believe there is a new Pulp album coming out in October...this may be the UK only date, I'm not sure. Really looking forward to that one.

There's a great band from England and Scotland called Life Without Buildings -- they're influenced quite a bit by bands from the late '70s like Gang of Four, the Slits, and the Fall. Their record has been out for several months in the UK; a new DC indie label is putting it out this fall, I believe. I think they'd appeal to anyone who is into Spoon, but they're different from them. They do share the jerky rhythms and pop structures.
Records I've yet to hear that I'm anxious about: Aphex Twin, Thomas Brinkmann, Boards of Canada, Eardrum, 4 Hero, Herbie Hancock, Lanterna, New Order, Pulp (produced by Scott Walker!), Techno Animal.
And then there's the reissues: Blondie, Miles Davis, Piano Magic, XTC. (I'm sure I'm forgetting plenty; reissues are going to get crazier with each year.)
It's been a great year thus far.

Does anyone know when the new New Order CD is due out? I've seen the single for "Crystal" in the stores, but no word on the actual release.
