Title: PJ Harvey
Post by: efdeat on February 27, 2011, 07:09:34 PM
Anyone a fan?  See her on NME Awards last night?  Order the new album?

i'm a fan;  didn't know she performed, i'll have to search for it.  i do have her new album, let england shake, but i'm still on the fence as far as how i feel about it.
it's a little more subtle performance musically.

i miss her rocking days

How does Let England Shake compare to, say, Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea or that collab album she did - A Woman a Man Walks By?

Anyone who inspires Nick Cave is a heroine of mine.  ;)

stories from the city is probably my favorite album of hers,  so it would be hard for something to compare to it. that had guitars front and center and she was singing loud at the top of the mix,

even off a woman a man, i really enjoyed 'black hearted love'

this album compares more closely to her most recent (solo) work,  White Chalk.  she sings in the same high register, guitars are more pushed into the background.
I think White Chalk is better, though.

I think the new album is fantastic. It's probably closer to White Chalk or This Is Desire? than her rockier records. The Soldier from her last John Parish collaboration is actually something of a precursor, she explores very similar themes of war and damage it does and sings in the similar high register, though the instrumentation is rather different, much "fuller".

Stories... is a great album but it would land in the bottom half of the list if I was ranking her albums - it's perhaps a tad too straight for my liking. All her other albums have these undercurrents of tension, weirdness, uneasiness to them and on Stories they're pretty much ironed out.

Dammit, Briscoe . . .

I walked into that one.

Well, I am excited to have found some other PJ fans on the forum!  I look forward to the new album, then - will have to get on that - and will be back with my thoughts.

I made it through two songs of her Coachella performance and I moved on. I keep wanting to like her material, but it's just not working for me.

Fantastic singer and compared to other female solo artists of the last 20 years I reckon pretty much untouchable. Stories.... is the most accessible album, beautiful songs with balls too. Dry is great and others offer different sounds and challenges to herself and her fans. I need to get the more recent stuff.  She's managed by Principle Management and toured with U2 which is always a bonus. Wish I'd been there to see those gigs.

Post by: Starman on June 06, 2014, 09:28:47 PM
So I have heard a couple of PJ songs and really liked them (This is Love is a great tune) so I decided to buy a cheap used copy of Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea today. Good place to start?
Title: Re: PJ Harvey
Post by: briscoetheque on June 07, 2014, 12:55:27 AM
Yep, very, although she is an artist who never makes 2 albums in the same style. Compare stories from the city with let England shake or white chalk... Incredible differences.

But if you like her guitar work, stories is a great starter. Then grab let England shake for a contrast of epic proportions.

Umh......being honest....i cant really recall much about her performance as i wasnt really a fan of hers......certainly at that time. In fact...i want much of a fan of anyone other than u2 at that stage of my life. Apart from u2....i was more into hearing The Stereo MCs than PJ. I do recall her set on Glasgow #1 being haunted by technical gremlins

I was blown away by PJ Harvey's live performance the first time I saw her opening for U2 on the Elevation Tour in 2001. I saw that tour 5 times, which means I got to see PJ Harvey open for them 5 times as well. I became a fan and purchased all the albums. I saw her on her own tours that year and in years since.

Here is a great live performance of Dress: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A29BMj3v86w

Its shocking, but PJ Harvey is actually one of the richest people on the planet. Although she is a less well known artist in terms of mass popularity, the little money she has made from music she has invested very well and is now reportedly worth $275 million dollars which is more than most individuals in the music business and maybe even more than Bono.

She lost me with her 3rd album...well, with both the album and the live show I saw her do on that tour. Hugely disappointing; Tricky (who's not exactly the greatest live performer himself) blew her off the stage.
Title: Re: PJ Harvey
Post by: Buck on June 10, 2014, 10:44:14 AM
I had never even heard of PJ Harvey until I saw her open for U2 in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania on the Elevation Tour. It was amazing to become hooked on an artist after just one live performance.

Was going to start a new thread but found this old one after doing a search...

The magnificent PJ Harvey is on tour in North America and seems to be in fine form (of course!)

If you get chance go and see this remarkable artist.

I agree.  I saw her last summer in Europe and am tempted to see her again as she tours rarely (generally only when she puts on a new album), most especially the U.S.

I rented the  'Stories from the City, Stories from the Se'a album from the British Council Library where I stay.  I didn't realize then how much I would come to like it.  Love the abrasive guitars, and overall sound of the record.

I thought the last time I saw PJ Harvey was in a club before her debut album was released, but now I recall she was support at a Zooropa show I went to.  She also supported on the Elevation Tour but not the night I went.  However, my cousin who works in the music industry was there the PJ Harvey night.  I recall with some bitterness that she had promised to bring me along with her if she was going: "il capo, if I go to a show you will be with me".  So it was with consternation I heard from her the next day that she'd been and how brilliant it had been.  She explained she had not taken me as she only found out she was going a couple of hours before the show.  I wanted to say "I live less than an hour from the venue", but had to button my lip.  Alas PJ Harvey was touring the amazing Stories from the City/Sea album, and it was said to be the best night of the Elevation tour in London too.

More new magic...

http://pitchfork.com/news/74043-watch-pj-harveys-video-for-new-song-the-camp/amp/

The timing of PJ Harvey’s latest release is pertinent. As political squabbling reaches its climax before the UK’s general election on 8 June, the musician is turning her gaze towards the global refugee crisis for a collaboration with Egyptian artist Ramy Essam, whose song Irhal became synonymous with the demonstrations at Tahrir Square in Cairo during the Egyptian revolution of 2011.

Entitled The Camp, the minimal, haunting song serves a higher moral purpose than a normal experiment with melody. Along with its video, which uses images from the forthcoming book by acclaimed photojournalist Giles Duley, I Can Only Tell You What My Eyes See, its message of despair – descriptions of “children who move like ghosts” and a “grey boy burned by cigarettes, pushed with scarred hands through the fence” – documents the lives of displaced children in the Bekaa valley in Lebanon.

I would think it would go do down a storm here as hasn't Bono made some comments/commentary in gigs in last few years about refugee crisis?

This song obviously takes a much more head on approach but i recall the refugee crisis being a pretty big deal to fans on here.

Lyrics are something else the lyrical image of 'a grey boy burned by cigarettes pushed with scarred hands through the fence' is simply stunningly put by Polly Jean.

I'm not sure an American U2 audience would take to this track given the review I just read of the Pittsburg show by tigerfan... sounds like there were grumblings about the refugee videos during the concert.  You're right this is a stunning lyric, and I'd like U2 to try to tackle things like this head on with their next LP.

In certain markets they're alright with it, maybe even supportive of it, but in other markets (such as Pittsburgh and anywhere south of that), they get annoyed with the least little mention of the refugee crisis or anything that is perceived as anti-republican.

As for PJ, I haven't heard much of her music, but perhaps will check her out along with Beck, another that's long been on my to-listen to list.

The timing of PJ Harvey’s latest release is pertinent. As political squabbling reaches its climax before the UK’s general election on 8 June, the musician is turning her gaze towards the global refugee crisis for a collaboration with Egyptian artist Ramy Essam, whose song Irhal became synonymous with the demonstrations at Tahrir Square in Cairo during the Egyptian revolution of 2011.

Entitled The Camp, the minimal, haunting song serves a higher moral purpose than a normal experiment with melody. Along with its video, which uses images from the forthcoming book by acclaimed photojournalist Giles Duley, I Can Only Tell You What My Eyes See, its message of despair – descriptions of “children who move like ghosts” and a “grey boy burned by cigarettes, pushed with scarred hands through the fence” – documents the lives of displaced children in the Bekaa valley in Lebanon.

Great track - so pertinent.  Thanks for altering us to this great new release.

I would think it would go do down a storm here as hasn't Bono made some comments/commentary in gigs in last few years about refugee crisis?

This song obviously takes a much more head on approach but i recall the refugee crisis being a pretty big deal to fans on here.

Lyrics are something else the lyrical image of 'a grey boy burned by cigarettes pushed with scarred hands through the fence' is simply stunningly put by Polly Jean.

I'm not sure an American U2 audience would take to this track given the review I just read of the Pittsburg show by tigerfan... sounds like there were grumblings about the refugee videos during the concert.  You're right this is a stunning lyric, and I'd like U2 to try to tackle things like this head on with their next LP.

I thought u2's audience especially in America were very much into the causes.

In certain markets they're alright with it, maybe even supportive of it, but in other markets (such as Pittsburgh and anywhere south of that), they get annoyed with the least little mention of the refugee crisis or anything that is perceived as anti-republican.

As for PJ, I haven't heard much of her music, but perhaps will check her out along with Beck, another that's long been on my to-listen to list.

interesting perspective, thanks....

as for PJ......here is a bit of a beginners guide of songs to start with...

I think tiger and myself should watch out for your sarcasm about American audiences  :P Also that you should have recommended Angelene.

Ha...for once there was no sarcasm....i'll be sure to make up for that though...

It was close between that and The Wheel but went with newer track as a wider spread/more accessible...didn't want list to be too diverse.

So much great stuff to select...so much diversity.

Haha, I wondered if there was a bit of sarcasm there or not!  ;)

Thanks for the recs, btw. I'm going to give'em a fair listen.
