Goner Message Board / ???? / New Reiging Sound LP

Who's heard this yet??

What are your thoughts???

I love almost every thing Greg has done in any form in his career, and I'd never say anything bad about the guy.

That being said, I don't enjoy the new record very much. For my tastes, it's too light, too 60s, too straight-laced garage. I love the other RS records.

I think if you enjoyed the Scion EP, you'll like it. If not, maybe not so much.

Others will chime in and say it's great, though. It just doesn't appeal to me much.

The "My My" song in the article sounds Stonesy to me. Not bad.

If i sucked Greg's dick and swallowed he still wouldn't believe me if I told him that I loved him. But they ruled hard in Baltimore a month ago. Wanna hear this LP bad. Between that show, Parting Gifts show in Baltimore a few years ago, and John Paul Keith's show here last year I don't have any doubt about modern Memphis and related musicality. I do not expect to hear Oblivians anymore unless I'm listening to Oblivians. Dick sucking aside, I can't wait to love or hate this album.

"Since Reigning Sound's last studio album, 2009's "Love and Curses," Mr. Cartwight lost two extended family members and two close friends in the music world: Jim Shaw, a champion of underground rock from Detroit; and a rising star from Memphis who went by the name Jay Reatard and died in 2010 at age 29."

What does it feel like to be referred to as "Mr. Cartwright" six times in an article? Crazy!

Love and Curses is my favorite.
Posted: Jun 28, 2014 5:12 pm
they're all great, but i generally prefer the rawer albums. Too Much Guitar's my favorite by far - the drums on that record fucking blow me away - with Time Bomb High a close second. haven't got to see them since they played with the Detroit Cobras in PDX, way back in... geez, that was like 10 years ago?! totally stoked to see them at the booger burgaloo next week - wish they could've squeezed on the bill with Ronnie Spector that night in SF, but i'll take what i can git...

Just pointing out "Live at Goner" was 9 years ago, two days ago...

You're growing a beard Joe? Me too.

This like their other stuff is fab. Getting my copy soon.
Posted: Jul 18, 2014 5:38 pm
I like it lots... like it better than "Love and Curses" (not that "L&C" was a bad album by any means). Perfect mix of rockers and ballads, soulful... It's currently the soundtrack for my breakup w/my fiancee...

Good luck, Sal!

i was drunk and stoned when i heard it but pretty sure i liked it.
Posted: Jul 25, 2014 1:55 pm
I hear it's getting "huge raves". A little birdie told me.
Posted: Jul 28, 2014 10:35 pm
I LOVE most of it...even the cornball stuff. 'My My' is my Van Morrison-esque jam. Really just thrilled that it brought them to Portland (GREAT show) and the West Coast.
