lights of endangered species

i didn't know that matthew good was releasing any new material, until my cousin told me about it. then, i had forgotten the release date, until the same cousin sent me a link to stream the entire album "lights of endangered species".

i didn't need to sample the album; i'd buy any music matt good releases.

i like this album. my favourite track is "non populus".

Non Populus by Matthew Good


Labels: ,

deftones, isis

still doing my a-z challenge...

a few months ago, i got to deftones' "white pony". a pleasant rediscovery, i was surprised at how much of the lyrics i still remember. now, 11 years later, i still love that album. i decided to check out their more recent material; unfortunately, it didn't click.

back in april, on record store day, they released a compilation of cover songs. i found out that they had previously released other covers songs on their "b-sides & rarities" compilation, back in 2003. i gave that a listen. their cover of cocteau twins' "wax and wane" was good enough for me to order the disc online.

cocteau twins - wax and wane

deftones - wax and wane (cover)

other interesting artists/bands covered include sade, the cure, the smiths...

back to my a-z challege: when i got to isis' "wavering radiant", i realized that my favourite track from them is "weight" from the 2002 album "oceanic". i added that disc to my online order (i needed at least two items to get free shipping from amazon).

isis - weight

i've listened to the album in its entirety just a couple of times. i find it a bit difficult to get through.
