    Bump

    I've listened to this song way too many times in the last 5 days or so:



    I've listened to a few of this band's songs before, but this is the first one I love.

    Saw this artist on Colbert last week. Her song surprised me, rich melodic vibe, reminds me of how they used to put together songs in the 70s.

    Her name sounds like hockey coach Randy Carlyle. Brandi Carlile, The Joke:

    US Girls is a rad project and hasn't released anything bad at all, IMO.

    I'm going retro with Suicide today:

    Gotta share this one again:



    Saw them about two years ago at Cattivo in Larryville. For starters, it's a lesbian bar. In addition, it was during a Pens playoff game. There was only about 20 people in the crowd, so safe to say I doubt they ever come back to PGH.

    Sorry to go back in time on this one, but while you are on the right track (nice pun?), it gets so much better. Run, don't walk, to a dealer and find yourself a proper moving coil cartridge (and step up transformer if your preamp isn't MC friendly) for your tonearm. That Shure is a bomber, durable cartridge, but once you match up with the right MC rig from Denon, Dynavector, or just about anyone not named Audio Technica, your mind will be blown. The difference isn't subtle.

    Hypothetical question: Can you really continue to call Progressive by that name when it's mostly been repeating themes of the genre since King Crimson and Close the Edge era Yes?

    Anyway, I just re-surfed all 36 pages of this thread while listening to The Contortionist and Haken:

    Or just get a high output MC and save the money that you won't have to spend on a step up transformer. The Ortofon MC-1 Turbo is pretty good and won't break the bank.

    That being said, I have an old Pioneer PL-518 with an Ortofon 2m Bronze that blew my RP3 with the Bronze out of the water. I love it. Wouldn't think about switching it for a MC cart.

    If it ain't Baroque, don't fix it! *adjusts tie*

    I tend toward heavier music myself which lends itself well toward more bombastic classical scores so it's not often included as a part of a chamber performance. But I certainly can enjoy the more intimate side of things as well. What's a fav piece for you?

    I started out as a pure metal fan myself haha. Beethoven's late quartets were a life-changer for me, but in terms of newer stuff that could appeal to the heavier side, you might dig the 2nd mvmt from Shostakovich's 8th quartet (5:15 to 8:10...pretty intense):



    And I haven't heard anything quite like the harmonic and rhythmic effects in Bartok's music...he was truly original thinker, and it's hard to believe he was writing stuff like this in the 1920s. The 2nd mvmt from his 4th quartet always stuns me (6:55 to 10:10):

    Until you hear one. The right one ;-) / synergy plays a role here. I bought a PL-518 new, back in like '79 or '80. Wish I had held on to it, it's worth twice what I paid then, inflation notwithstanding. Ditched it for an SL-1301, then ditched that for a sweet Thorens, now back with a burly Technics because my 115 year old floor and joists are problematic for tracking, given I have two teenage boys. Did you keep the Rega?

    Yeah. But I find myself not really using it. I listen to a lot of 45s. The whole belt thing becomes a pain. Plus I love auto return. I have it running through a McIntosh 4100. It's perfect.
