Simakos burns this disc for me. I put it on. It kicks major ass. That's about it. Short rocking songs that just jam out. Anybody else diggin' this shit?

The chorus on Oh, It's such a shame is so kick ass. The sound on the end of this song is so boss, it reminds of New Order or something.

The guitar sound on this album rocks too.

This is my favorite new album and I think I'll listen to it extensively.

I love this record, too. "The chorus on Oh, It's such a shame is so kick ass." This song amazes me. It's like three different songs in one. The verses, chorus, and outro are all so cool and unique, but it works as a whole in about three minutes. Brilliant record. Like a distillation of punk/new wave in one nice and neat power poppy package. Is Alan still refusing to listen to this? I want to see this kid play at the Mutiny.

No, he's not playing there, it's just where I would love to see him play in an ideal world.

"It's so much easier when you don't even care!" "All these places mean nothing to me!"

My Shadow sounds un-fuckingly sonicly beautiful.

This is the best album I've heard in a long, long time.

Simakos: this is a debut?

AMG:

Led by Jay Jay (akaJay Reatard of the Reatards) and Alicja Trout (Clears, River City Tanlines), Memphis' Lost Sounds are a glorious mess of punk rock artsiness gone awry in all the right places. Their 2004 In the Red effort, simply titled Lost Sounds, is a punk rock dance party guaranteed to merrily demolish every piece of furniture in the room. But this paranoid rampage is a far cry from the faux-sexy bass'n'drum din pumped out by the likes of Death from Above 1979. "Those things they put inside me/ You know they make me nervous," wails Jay through a cacophonous din of twitchy surf guitars and stuttering keyboards. Elsewhere the band declares that the end of the world is, "worth a laugh." And you get the feeling they mean it.

With a pedigree that includes some of the most raucous noise outfits to emerge from the Memphis scene, the Lost Sounds avoid the traps of by-the-numbers punk or southern-flavored garage rock and instead offer up a sound that is more akin to savage disco. That being said, their adventurous sonic attack is bold and sometimes abrasive. Ample melodies are buried in the din for anyone brave enough to sift through the noise to find them. A danceable disaster, the band's chaotic post-apocalyptic new wave sound explodes from the speakers with a fuzzed-out fury that borders on collapse. Hard to categorize, the sound is something akin to Devo, Liars, Rocket from the Tombs, and the Pixies duking it out to decide who's crazier. Obnoxiously fun, the band is a likely bit of an acquired taste for most.

Damo Suzuki: So, um, yeah. Getting older isn't as bad as it sounds. Better than being young & poor (DjDrake) or young & slutty (SG) or young, poor and slutty (Paves); am I right?

Alright, my friends. It's time for another solid little rock jam

I absolutely love Blood Visions. It destroys. And it reminds me of the "bloody diapers" bit from Season 4 of "Mr. Show." Thanks for the heads up on his new singles. Also slept on, while we're talking In The Red Records: The King Khan & BBQ Show. Amazing band.

This review I wrote a few months ago pretty much sums up my feelings about this album.

Seriously, everybody who is currently following music needs to know about this album. We, the music fans of 2007, have a genuine classic on our hands.

Listening to it for the first time, it's ok. I'll pay more attention after I listen to Yank Crime. This board is awesome because it reminds me of stuff I never think about listening to, such as the aforementioned.
Aren't there any girls out their who like good music? I need to and want to meet them. My favorite bands are Overkill River, The Nife, Songs:Ohio, and Nuetral Milk Hotel. Please let me know if your into indy music and like to go to show's and drink beer's and makeout.
