Good Amount // Power
Christian Filardo is one righteous dude who really refuses to be pinned down. It was only around a month ago that he released his quite excellent album In a Quiet Way under the name Good Amount. Even though it was his second album under that moniker, Christian managed to completely reinvent Good Amount’s sound to blog acclaim. Rather than rest on his laurels though, he pushed onward to yet another album and once again turned Good Amount on its head with Power.
The difference between In a Quiet Way and Power are immediately recognizable. Where In a Quiet Way experimented with the gap between his previously vocal based compositions and glitchy electronics, Power obliterates the flood gates (heh, that rhymed) and really lets Christian’s creativity run wild. And while Good Amount has always been pretty much synonymous with atmosphere, the lengthy droning pieces on Power feel like thunderous vibrations from another world sent coursing through your body. Nothing is held back and it is all just thrown onto the canvas and allowed to drip and run into itself creating a living world of bleeding colors. If you are into drone then I highly suggest checking it out. You can download it for free on his bandcamp.
By the way, Christian is one of the hardest working dudes in the blogosphere. In addition to Good Amount, he also runs his own digital/cassette label Holy Page, he’s an amazing visual artist as seen on Habitual Glory, and he also (most recently) runs a music blog called Suave Citation with his brother Thomas Filardo.
Circle Takes The Square-
“To commune with the life-less…
Spirit narrative, Rite of passage;
Progress is paralysis, when poison is my path.”
Impromptu: Drops | astrangertotears
Impromptu recording. Two weeks ago. I don’t remember the chords I used. Also, I can’t make out the lyrics :))

Morrissey - Piccadilly Palare
From the album Bona Drag
Tomb Of Liegia - Team Sleep
Hear the crowd of ghosts
Their voices dry and holow
Can’t you hear their calls?
They cheer me to the gallows
Everyone was looking for an answer
and everyone was waiting for a break
I came and I was bored of it soon after
but I had nowhere to go and so I stayed
I dreamed a lifetime of this place
it seemed an awful thing to waste.
This is one of those impromptu recordings that I do for fun…you know, I record stuff…impromptly… Impromptly? Is that even a word? Geesh. lol. Okay. You will notice that it fades out before the ending because 1. I ran out of ideas 2. My 12-yr-old brother started coughing in the background and I got distracted and you know how it is.
and I’m tired of being stuck in this world
and I hate the sight of everyone that surrounds me
and I will do everything to break away
cause I’m tired of the same things
over and over again
im tired im tired im tired
who knew this would be something i’d regret
don’t be afraid, just calm your senses
…and then my brother started coughing.
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, “I Am Warm + Powerful”
This here’s one of those songs that won’t feel like a stranger to you in the future. From the moment I first heard it ‘til three minutes ago (I listened to it again for the nth time), not a note turns sour. Everything’s perfect.
We’ve got amnesia from the slightest problems. You start shaking and you start talking. It takes more than working now to keep you from falling. ‘Cause work is starting and things are falling. I’m in a real good place to light out without leaving a trace. And you said that I was the only one. Now I just don’t know what’s going on.
We don’t get out very much. I’m afraid were loosing touch with our balled up little crowd. When we get out and get drunk and we get high and don’t talk. We just walk and walk and walk until we find ourselves alone but at least we’ve got each other.
It’s not so bad if you can’t remember. This is just an excuse for something. We have got amnesia from the slightest problems. You start shaking and you start talking.
Alone where I can’t be you. I don’t think a lot about you.
I’ve been thinking a lot about you.
Chickens in the background. Sorry for that. Haha. This is a very very very rough draft, I just recorded it so I won’t forget how it should sound like :))
