So Boris made a new album, and it's actually not bad at all. Kind of a mixed bag like a lot of their more recent stuff but some of it is outstanding:



YEAH

So I remembered I wanted to try these guys. Spotified Pink and loved it. Randomly chose and spotified Attention Please and was so taken aback at the difference. I really liked the ethereal vocals and chilled out vibe on that. 'You' really stood out for me.

So I'm sold and I ask you for guidance on where next to stab in their massive discog.

Amplifier worship is my favourite. It will make you shit your pants if pink and attention please are your only exposure to them.

Heavy rocks (2002) is an essential stoner rock album. Akuma no Uta is a good album if you want to hear a little bit of everything that boris does best. Feedbacker and flood are one-long-song albums that are also some of their best work.

so much shit to choose from in their discog, it's hard to go wrong.

Feedbacker and Amplifier Worship are the essentials in my view. Both really intense in different ways. There's also some incredible stuff on Smile, and you might like Rainbow (with Michio Kurihara) if you're into their mid-period stuff.

Thanks guys, will get onto this pronto. They seem to be a really cool band. Farewell sounded like a grungy Sigur Ros to me, very cool. I love Kyuss so I'll probs check out the stoner stuff first.

Also, they're releasing a 7" vinyl covering Asobi Seksu who I dig for Record Store Day, might try and get my hands on that.

EDIT: Just Abandoned Myself is so ****ing good.

Hell yeah! There's some filler stuff on Pink but the best songs absolutely destroy. You'll probably like the orange Heavy Rocks too if you love stoner stuff.

All right, I've listened to Smile, Akuma No Uta and Amplifier Worship. (Feedbacker, Flood, Heavy Rocks (2002) and Rainbow ain't on Spotify).

Smile was awesome, as was Akuma No Uta (especially the title track, what is it with these guys and epic closers?).

Amplifier Worship is proving to be a more difficult listen. I'll express my thoughts live:

The end (13:00) in Ganbou-Ki is awesome.
Hama is just brilliant. A needed break into a crushing romp. Really cool build up too.
The quiet part in Kuruimizu is really quite beautiful, it achieves something most post-rock bands fail to make, and instead it's boring and derivative.
Vomitself, like Huge, I can't really get into. I don't think I have an appetite for sludge/doom just yet.

Just listened to that track from the latest album, it's really great. I think I like them at their best when there's these huge pounding chords over a nice, simple vocal melody.

Also, where the hell can I get my hands on pre-Pink stuff? Akuma No Uta doesn't appear in itunes when I search it.

You want mp3 downloads? Akuma No Uta and Amplifier Worship are both on amazon mp3.

Did you listen to Rainbow yet? After blasting it again earlier (first time in years) I reckon you'd like it a lot. It's also on amazon.

Sweet, I'll check that out. What about Heavy Rocks (2002) and Flood? goddamn obscure bands.

I just checked it out there. Brilliant, dat solo. Will buy it at some point today! (on itunes for a nice 7.10) All this obsessing is ****ing up my studies.

Haha I did the same thing when I first got into Boris, got totally hooked and binged for a few months solid.

You're never gonna find Flood or Heavy Rocks 2002 to purchase for a reasonable price though, so I'd just recommend you acquire them another way. If you're not that way inclined then Flood is on youtube in full.


And this



classic

Ah, that sucks man. Maybe I'll just wait for a reissue or something. Youtube quality sux though.

That was great. I imagine that album's just one fat jam. Well, I like it's little sister, Heavy Rocks (2011), so I guess that'll keep me content for now. Some of it's catchy as hell, and I really dig those two 12 minute epics.

1970 is the best track off HR 2002.

I dl'd Rainbow and listened to it last night. Fantastic album. All those solos are cumtastic. I wish My Rain was longer though, such a nice little piece.

Why isn't their latest release on their official sites? They're a very confusing band. with all the different labels and such.

Praparat was vinyl only I think. I'd imagine it's both exciting and infuriating to be a Boris fan if you're the avid collector type

I love vinyl as well..

It's not even the fetish of owning everything, it's just a want to have access to their music. I think it's cool that they have this kind of 'do it and move on' attitude with their music though.

Seen them live twice and it might've been the best live rock music I've seen. This band is professional. Will see them every time they come to Portland.

Anybody know what kind of gear they play? I saw a Les Paul looking thing, Orange amps, and a guitar/bass. It was sick. Also, any other heavy/atmospheric bands that push the envelope like they do?

The guitarist uses vintage orange amps in studio (OR120 I belive) and les paul guitars. Bassist uses a Sunn model T head with marshall cabs and an ampeg SVT. He has a first act twin neck rickenbacker clone.


Not many bands are as varied as they are but you can check out:

Earth
Floor
Torche
Sleep
Isis
My Bloody Valentine
The Melvins
Harvey Milk
