My Favorite Tunes of 2009 [20 Jan 2010|11:05am]
[ mood | bored ]

1.Animal Collective- Merriweather Post Pavilion: Animal Collective has to be one of the most, if not the most, buoyant band amongst all the indie hoopla that continues to be spread thinner and thinner. A very sublime mix of textural ambiance and electronic inspired rhythm blend with harmonizing vocals to form a catchy play list. Bluish is easily my fav track on here, but there isn't a single track that I skip over when I listen to it. The whole album is just cohesive and absolutely a feast for the ears.

2.Phoenix-Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix: Straight out of France, Phoenix is less of a band rising out of the ashes, and more like a bird setting the world on fire with its perfect blend of synth, rock and pop. These guys are talented. The transitions within each song are generally perfect, the production is incredible, and I'm generally incapable of scrolling past Phoenix on my ipod. I can't tell you how many times I have recommended this to people. Phoenix has Gary Numan and many other artists from the 1980s to thank for their sound but they have brought it to a whole new level. It's my first exposure to Phoenix and I'm definitely going to check out the rest of their albums.

3.Mastodon-Crack The Skye: It is hard to do this album justice in words - it has to be listened to to truly appreciate the masterpiece that it is. They're more than driving music and are not something you can throw on while you do your homework. The music is just layer after layer of metal brilliance. They have progressed far beyond the stereotypical confines of metal to create a rock masterpiece. The musicianship, composition, arrangement, vision and (for want of better word) 'production', they are all superb.

4.Yeah Yeah Yeahs-It's Blitz: I don't know why there is backlash to this album. Maybe it's just her vocals, but I can't help but compare this version of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to classic Siouxie and the Banshees. It's beautifully focused and realized and I would emphasize that it shows master craftspeople at their work. It's Blitz! is moving, beautiful and at many parts danceable. I can't get enough "Dull Life" and "Heads Will Roll."

5.Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit-Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit: I am a huge fan of Jason Isbell's work in the Drive-By Truckers and was very disappointed to hear that he was leaving the band. But his solo stuff doesn't disapoint either. It's genuine, soulful, and reflects the rich Muscle Shoals sound. Jason is just Jason. I have no comparisons. His first cd, Sirens of the Ditch, wasn't one of my favorites at all but now with the 400 Unit I am extremely happy. He went back to the drawing board in forming the 400 Unit and has never sounded better. You can truly listen to it from one end to the other, over and over.

6.The Dirty Projectors-Bitte Orca: Dave Longstreth is this generation's Captain Beefheart. The first three or four songs are unimpeachable awesome - skewed pop at its finest. You just don't know how he makes some of this stuff listenable, but he somehow sands down the edges just enough to make tolerable the last word one would search for. It's one of the most original and innovative albums to come out in a long time, despite this musical explosion we've heard in 2009. Bits from the album stick in my mind for days after I have listened to it. The sounds are something that can hardly be achieved these days because they're like nothing you've ever heard before. However, because the album presents so many complex ideas and so many changes in meter and structure so rapidly it is not likely to become one of the most coherent albums of all time. I believe that like Radiohead, many bands will benefit from taking examples from Dirty Projectors.

7.Bob Dylan-Together Through Life: This album passed the test of a good CD is when you stick on one or two tracks, but that expands as you let the album play in its entirety. Unlike Love &Theft or Modern Times, this album takes a little time to grow on you. Dylan performs with a full band, and plays plenty of electric guitar as well, on this one. Two things get better with time: wine and Bob Dylan.

8.Kagrra-Shu: The album features the unmistakable, unmatchable multifaceted sound and expression, fuses wonderfully the traditional Japanese sounds with powerful rock music and a feel as if their music is meant solely for the sake of beauty. With so many albums and singles being released by so many bands in these recent months, this album is a definite must buy. The way the koto is artfully weaved in with the other sounds is like the cherry on top of this musically delicious sound sundae. If you never liked neo-japanesque stuff though just stay away.

One Step Closer to the End [24 Dec 2009|06:26am]
This is the about to be the first time a huge government intrusion entitlement on an unwilling public. The senate is murdering justice. I'm choking on the lump of coal that the Senate is shoving down our throat. The Senate just broke the law through extortion. We NOW HAVE BEEN SUCKERED INTO THE LIE THAT HEALTH CARE IS A RIGHT at the expense of our Constitutional rights! These Washington lying politicians need to be charged with treason and need to be impeached out of office. Anyone that votes yes on the Bill is a crook and traitor.Merry f**king Christmas indeed. These politicians ruined Christmas for everyone. The HR bill is against the law. It begins with the states and they must challenge it. As
illegal as this fiasco has become, the entire bill should be thrown out
and exposed to the people to find the corruption that is in it. We the people can challenge the constitutionality. That's the beauty of a constitutional republic. No one has yet to address the unconstitutionality of the personal mandates. It is a blatant violation of the 13th amendment. Also remember that this bill will steal from states, the elderly, doctors, and businesses for the phony right to health care. It's our right to choice and not a right or a mandate. "The foundation of the Constitution is laid on this ground: "All powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people." To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers of Congress is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition" --Thomas Jefferson

President Obama Auctions American Independence for Fairness. [06 Apr 2009|08:26pm]
[ mood | worried ]

Thanks President Obama for repealing America's economic sovereignty and making the United States a laughing stock to the United Nations and North Korea. America has nothing to apologize for and is not over arrogant. This country can not and should not be based on fairness but success. I refuse to give up my tax dollars to a struggling country in the name of fairness. That's what donations and voluntary monetary contributions are for. This is so retarded. And people were upset at George W. Bush?! How can the US not be allowed to defend itself against a hostile group of people (Islamic fascists) in the name of a pipe dream. This President is dangerous by sacrificing our sovereignty, eliminating military defense, and apologizing for just actions of force. What is the point of even having a Navy? Meanwhile, China is building nuclear submarines and North Korea could possibly wipe out Hawaii. The President has no right to wrongfully declare Americans as arrogant and stupid. Barack Obama must be impeached for the safety and security of the United States.

Taxing and Spending Our Way To Oblivion:Obama Punishing Hard Work [28 Jan 2009|03:17pm]
I urge all of you who believe in a capitalist free market to contact your Senators ASAP and demand that he STOP STEALING OUR MONEY FOR PROGRAMS AND HARD WORK WE CAN DO OURSELVES. The so-called tax stimulus spending package that will supposedly reinvigorate the economy. One of the biggest red flags that will damage the economy is the government authorizing the Federal Reserve to print more money. In fact, the idea of creating more money to devalue the dollar which is what the Federal Reserve will be doing if they do print more money is something that has been attempted at least three times in our great nation's history. The French, Confederate senate, and North Korea have all attempted to print and release American dollars into the economy in order to devalue it.

As if this was not bad enough, Obama wants to give 95% of Americans a tax cut. This looks awesome on the surface, but then you notice that the percentage is 95% and that 5% of Americans will have to pay more taxes simply because they work hard to earn more money. In addition this stimulus package raises the rate of taxable income via the capital gains and estate taxes. WHY SHOULD WE RECEIVE FREE MONEY IF WE DID NOT WORK HARD TO EARN IT.

Another aspect of the stimulus plan is JAMMING PUBLIC RESEARCH AND SERVICE PACKAGES DOW OUR THROATS. Climate research is something that a democratic government should have no part of because it is a program that the private sector can handle itself. In effect, Obama is saying, "You can't do climate research if you care about the planet. You have to let or rather the government is forcing us to allow them to handle these matters that the American government has no business interfering in.

This is just the beginning. Obama will not be happy until everyone is dependent on the government. I've heard the democratic argument in favor of the bill. "It Shelters the homeless and heals the sick." I urge you right now if you are reading this to contact your senator or congressman and let them know that Americans do NOT WANT THE GOVERNMENT STEALING OUR HARD EARNED MONEY AND MAKING GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS OUT OF WHAT IT IS UP TO AMERICAN CITIZENS TO ACCOMPLISH. I refuse to allow President Obama to give me money or health benefits that I have not earned or deserved.

My Favorite Tunes of 2008 [22 Jan 2009|01:37pm]
[ mood | artistic ]

Another wonderful year of music and a good year overall. I was able to get back to studying Japanese and Spanish and I am well on my way to getting my second degree in communications. I realize that I am a little late in posting this but I have been busy with work, volunteering with Ronald McDonald House, work, and running an afternoon shift as a DJ at WUMR. Hope you enjoy. I realize that opinions, including mine, are like farts and that everyone has them and they usually stink so let me know what you all have been listening to or what you think.

1.Mars Volta"The Bedlam in Goliath" Photobucket This album is a thrill ride the whole way through with amazing musicianship. So few artists can really compare to this group at its best, and their debut can't be matched. This is a really great CD if you're into their eclectic sound. The drummer sounds like he has four arms.

2.Kaiser Chiefs "Off With Their Heads" Photobucket A good slick and catchy album that creates a perfect picture ofthe brilliant energetic live shows this band does. I saw them last summer and the show was jammed with energy. Simply, great pop rock. Although last year's "Your's Truly..." was extremely disappointing, the Chiefs rebound with a strong effort that almost surpasses their debut "Employment". Unlike the last record, where the disc was sequenced to save their strongest and hardest hitting tracks towards the end of the disc, "Off With Their Heads" comes out smoking with the first two tracks "Spanish Metal" and "Never Miss A Beat". The rest of the disc bounces between similarly aggressive punk-pop, danceable new wave, and neo-psychedelia. Producer Mark Ronson adds the perfect amount of instrumental color to vary the sound without deviating too far from the Chief's core personality. The band also has a weird British sense of humor which can be heard in almost every song.

3.Trivium"Shogun" Photobucket I really appreciate the more rhythm bound metal sound that has just a hint of metalcore and some other styles. It's insane how good Matt Heafy is on guitar for someone who just turned 21. Shogun Is so heavy but has this really cool shadow of it that's so mellow and relaxing and builds into mixes of being just pain heavy metal to siht you've never heard before. The clean vocal portion of the choruses (with a hint of metalcore) sticks with you and you are singing it for hours. Don't let the anthemy opening fool you, the songs get raw with a dark growling menacing breakdown powered by traditional sounding gongs and taiko drumbeats.

4.The Cure "4:13 Dream" Photobucket I could not stand the sound of the self titled album from 2004 and did everything to abuse it short of using the cd as a Frisbee or a coaster. I had almost given up hope that I would feel the way I used to feel when first listening to a new Cure album. But this one is truly inspiring. Underneath the Stars opens the album somewhere between Open and Plainsong. The Reasons Why and The Hungry Ghost bring you back to pre-Head on the Door times while maintaining their own new sound. The Scream could've been placed somewhere on Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me. Don't get me wrong: this isn't textbook-heard it all before-Cure... 4:13 Dream has maintained what has always been great about The Cure, while creating a whole new world to get lost in. I still feel as though Disintegration is the best album with Bloodflowers in at number 2. However, that's a personal choice as I prefer that side of the band moreso than the others. My favorite tracks are The Perfect Boy and Underneath The Stars because they are dreamy tracks that create lush orchestras of sound. The Cure is the most diverse band I've ever listened to and are capable of being successful of many styles of music. I think it's great Porl is back and although I prefer Boris Williams over Jason Cooper, I think he's really improved as a drummer. I've heard there is another album on the way containing darker material similar to Bloodflowers and Disintegration and I'm really looking foward to it!

5.Keane "Perfect Symmetry" Photobucket The first time I listened to the CD, I was in complete shock. Up until the last song, Tom's voice was the only Keane sound I seemed to recognize. By the time the CD had started Spiralling for a second time though, I was hooked. The new album is Keane for happier days. And the essence of Keane is still there - all that passion and raw emotion from H&F and UTIS - as strong as ever and now channeled as an infectious good mood. The melodies, the choruses, the amazing vocals, the meaningful lyrics are stronger than ever. The Keyboards sometimes sound a little polished and disco tinged for me, but that's my only tiny ccomplaint.

6.Cut Copy "In Ghost Colours" Photobucket No doubt they did some of the best work in 2008. With a very New Order-ish sound, in spite of their name, Cut Copy gives new wave a fresh reinterpretation, introducing electronic elements that turn it into a nu new wave of sorts. No particular track stands out for me: they all are solid electropop songs that will resonate with eighties children as well as with those going through the motions. This album is very good! Every single track is strong and memorable.

7.Slipknot "All Hope Is Gone" Photobucket Boy was I impressed!!! One of the greatest Metal CDs released this year. A couple of spots of rabid, directionless metal, but over all a well focused and implimented CD. If only all their stuff could be this great. Snuff is perhaps my favorite song. I got goose bumps and started crying because of the beauty and honesty in the lyrics that were easy for me to relate to. There are just a whole bunch of layers to all of these songs and the new percussion sounds and beats just smashed my senses. Dead Memories and Child of Burning Times are also some awesome songs that showcase the melody in Corey Taylor's voice.

8.TV on the Radio "Dear Science" Photobucket Three albums in, and these guys have me totally convinced. Strong songs, funky songs, slow songs, beautiful songs, all with that David Bowie/Peter Gabriel vibe that somehow manages to sound completely original and new and fresh. These guys are amazing songwriters and I love how the lyric page is framed as a letter ("Dear Science," etc.). I could see how some people might find them pretentious and arty, but so what---I'm not sure how pretentious and arty became such a bad thing. I used to love REM for their pretentious and arty qualities (before they tried doing some subversively simple pop songs...Shiny Happy People, Stand) and I never thought these were bad qualities to have, if you can back it up with talent and vision. TV on the Radio can back it up---they might not grab you 100% at first listen, but give this one a chance and you'll quickly recognize the genius on this CD.

9.Deerhunter "Microcastle" Photobucket Deerhunter is not for everyone. But if you can handle a noisy and not always clean and neat sound, I would highly recommend this album. What I find most enjoyable is the way that they simply let a chord or riff repeat and gradually reveal its inherent beauty. It is a simple but courageous move, one that demands a sympathetic and patient listener. The single "Nothing Ever Happens" is a track that I find to be typical for my Deerhunter listening. After the intro, a strong bass line dominates the track. At a first listen I was frustrated and found this element almost repulsive. Later in the track, however, it unfolds into a beautiful, hazy guitar chord progression. The beauty is that you cannot have one without the other. Each element really works to make this track a standout.

10.Langhorne Slim "Langhorne Slim" Photobucket It doesn't have as many foot stomping moments as Slim's last one, but this feels more honest and personal. Its better artistically, but not as fun. It still belong on my play list of damn good music. This is not what i was expecting from him.

Wikipedia-Google Challenge!(How famous/busy are you?) [25 Nov 2008|06:07am]
[ mood | amused ]

I was watching the Rachel Maddow Show last night and I saw a conversation she had with myself. Actually she talked with the CEO and Chairmen of Google as well a member of President Obama's advisory board, Eric Schmidt, about the auto bail-out.


I needed something to distract me from working on my Japanese report so I went and looked up to see if there any other Erik Schmidts out there making their claim to fame.

Here is the challenge:

1.Go to Google and Wikipedia and find out how many famous/important people share your name.
2.Post the people and the link as a journal entry.
3.Post this challenge to others in your entry.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_City_Rebels(I am the drummer to a Vermont punk band called River City Rebels.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erik_Pema_Kunsang(I am a translator of Tibetan and Buddhist texts and historical records. I adopted the Buddhist name Erik Pema Kunsang.)

Media 2.0 Class Project [21 Nov 2008|06:29pm]
[ mood | productive ]

I am taking a class at the University of Memphis COMM 4219 Product Distribution in the Internet Age. Part of the class is to create a Media 2.0 project and distribute it via as many avenues as possible. I decided to create a video blog reviewing music. This is my official intro. I am currently a student at the University of Memphis pursuing my second undergraduate degree which is in communications. I created this blog as a weird class project, experiment. The title reflects the wonderful all-inclusive multicultural aspects of music. Let me know what do you think! The name of my blog/podcast is Erik "Sonic" Schmidt's Tanoshii Musica Moments" and borrows terms from different languages. This is rooted in my belief that an appreciation of music is greatly increased by exploring international music cultures. Tanoshii(楽しい) means to enjoy or spend time pleasantly. The main character used in this adjective is also used in the word for music, ongaku(音楽), which supports my theory that enjoyment is an important aspect of music and half of the equation. Musica is the Spanish word for music. While the title might be slightly harder to pronounce or understand and perhaps a simpler title could have been used, exploring the international roots of these words is essential in the enjoyment of the internationally rich variety of music itself. Please check it out and provide feedback on either the Youtube or Myspace account. I will update it every few days. This blog entry reviews the following cds:

Death Cab For Cutie: "Narrow Stairs"
Keane: "Perfect Symmetry"
Jack's Mannequin: "The Glass Passenger"




Thanks in advance!

The Writing On The Wall:Trickle Down Pain! [16 Oct 2008|09:09pm]
[ mood | worried ]

I would like to preface this paranoid rant by strongly encouraging everyone to vote. NO VOTE IS A WASTED VOTE! I recently viewed Obama's so called tax cuts. His economic policy requires a trillion with a capital T worth of spending. What's more is in order to accommodate the tax cuts and $1,500 to $4,000 tax credits, which I will also mention that I am fully qualified for, Obama proposes to raise the capital gains tax, raise taxes on big businesses(currently defined as$250,000 or more), raises taxes on the top 2% the population, as well as windfall increases in social security taxes. Although I am a college student earning my second degree as well as employed for a company which has allowed me to earn $8,000 so far this year, I greatly fear for the future security of both my employer, fellow employees, and selfishly my own job security. The reason why is because although I do not know the income of my place of employment, I can make a well educated guess that it will not be exempt from Obama's tax increases due to the fact that the company I work for is a global music distributions corporation. So let's say (I'll admit that I am somewhat uneducated on the financial details much of it is semi confidential) C***** Distributions makes 400,000 dollars this year and due to the potential taxation policies my employer has to pay around $24,000 in taxes. On top of this, Obama's health care policies dictate that they provide all of my fellow employees and I health insurance(a basic one size fits all plan which is coming from the government which means benefits for everyone, but limited access to medical resources). So if health insurance costs(again we're using round low estimate numbers here) the company $2,000 per person. The corporation I work for employs 315 employees which we will round down to 300 for ease of calculation. This equals out to another $600,000 the corporation has to pay just to get by. That means C***** Distributions now has to pay a total of $624,000. Remember we're going under the assumption that my employer has only made $400,000. This means that the corporation loses $224,000 if nothing else negative occurs. Of course, a corporation's goal is to make a profit. The only way the company can do this is to lay off the employees that are actually costing the corporation money. This means that there is a good chance that I and many other workers could lose our jobs so that the corporation can stay afloat. Oh. but wait. We're in a money crunch right now which means several corporations and entrepreneurial jobs are already feeling the pinch. How will this dilemma be addressed. Joe Biden proposes that I will be eligible to get $4,000 dollars.

So several people within the next couple of years will have no job security and many businesses will shut down or go overseas, but hey, we'll have our tax credit. Am I the only person bothered by this disturbing potential trend?!?! All of you have better make sure that you have your bills paid and financial matters taken care of things are going to get scary. America is running the risk of becoming a socialist state like Russia.

What's more is Barack Obama refuses to reveal his personal background, medical records, or birth certificate. How can someone have the legal right to become our blessed country's next great President if we don't know for sure if they are a national born citizen, which is a mandated requirement of the United States of America.

Obama even has the guts to dictate to the foreign leaders of the Middle East including Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, and Afganistan that they should hold off all talks until next year when he can handle them personally. No one single American should ever be allowed to overstep their bounds to such a degree that single handedly dictates foreign diplomacy and forces a socialist welfare state down our throats. I am already looking for jobs in Japan and Britain after I graduate because I doubt that there will be opportunities for me here.

Did you say Eggo or weirdo? [26 Aug 2008|12:29am]
[ mood | amused ]

I thought this was funny. I've been going to this Chinese restaurant and sub shop every few days for about the past month. It's great food and I like to do what I can to keep the places in business in my old neighborhood since there are so many vacant buildings there(it's sad). I've buying Dr.Slump, Inu Yasha, and Dragon Ball dvds there that the owner sells to pay for her son's school. I was assured that they are authentic previously owned stuff. However, I noticed that on the last few dvds they misspell both the romajinized and the katakana. Instead of "Eigo" or English as a featured language and subtitles, these dvds offer Eggo audio and subtitles. My mind races with the humorous possibilities. If you don't understand Japanese, just set it on Eggo audio and you can hear some more understandable audio of someone chewing or eating Eggo waffles.

So, sonik_e, your LiveJournal reveals...

You are... 2% unique (blame, for example, your interest in shrine school) and 25% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy yellowcard). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is simplistic.

Your overall weirdness is: 2

(The average level of weirdness is: 28.
You are weirder than 1% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!

This was slightly innacurate I think. Yellowcard is one of my least favorite bands and they don't even mention my unhealthy disturbing obsession with all things Sonic Youth.

I did the meet up with my adviser today and found out that I can graduate again next summer even with my new declared foreign language minor(Japanese and Spanish). I decided to switch things up in the last second and switched senseis. I loved Tokuda Sensei, but defected back to Miho Seensei since she does the games and acting thing. I'm going to need at least one class that willl let me move around and have fun if I'm going to pick up Japanese and survive the semester. As a bonus I will be able to write a report on the Memphis Guitar Wolf J-Rock connection. Hope everyone is staying cool and geting a good start to the new semester or whatever you consume your time with whether it's making the perfect sandwich or seeing along to whatever hilarious piece of genius Joss Whedon thinks of next.

Goodby Children! "Oh my God! They killed Chef!";_; [11 Aug 2008|05:54am]
[ mood | sad ]

I can't believe Isaac "Chef" Hayes is dead. Soul legend Isaac Hayes died Sunday, August 10, at the age of 65. This guy did a lot for music. You go to the Stax Museum downtown and you can't go more than a few feet without seeing one of his accomplishments. He practically made made Memphis soul what it is with all the work he did for the Stax label. He will be greatly missed. At least we know that the angels are all enjoying his chocolate salty balls in heaven.

This is just a sad horrible week for the entertainers. First Bernie Mac, then Paul Newman, and now Isaac Hayes.

RIP and Say hello to heaven fellas! We'll truly miss you!
