Print Edition: October 10, 2012
CIVL station manager Aaron Levy greatly enjoys CIVL’s program Listening to the Movies at 8 p.m. on Thursday nights, hosted by Jeremy Hannaford, who will provide you with some shufflage next week. This week they cover 28 Days Later.
Grandaddy – “AM 180”
This is from the only Grandaddy album I really like, Under the Western Freeway, and I absolutely love the album. Heartbreaking piano interrupts the casio-tones during the breakdown and amps up down the stretch with feedback and blips. Fun song, fun part of the movie. As if there were any.
Godspeed You! Black Emperor – “East Hastings”
They’ve got a new album, and played this song, from 28 Days Later to much fan fare in Vancouver last year. Godspeed coming back in 2012 is kind of like a zombie apocalypse. Focused on eschewing the mainstream and imparting morals on music, they’re eating the brains of the ignorant.
Dillinger Escape Plan and Nine Inch Nails – “Wish”
Seeing one of the most punishing modern bands ever to write, record and tour teaming up with a guy who recorded an eternally punishing album made up of completely synthesized sounds (Downward Spiral), for this live cover of his most punishing, analog based song … It’s really something else. Something real.
Brian Eno – “St. Elmo’s Fire”
From Another Green World, this was the first, and only, Eno record I ever checked out. Completely quirky, nerdy and silly-sounding with rubber basslines and cutesy lyrics, it’s a far cry from the Low era Bowie or David Byrne (Talking Heads) collaborations he is also known for.
