This week I have mostly been listening to...
The Hold Steady
A Rough Trade compilation that came free with a magazine
Oh, and a rather splendid compilation CD that a friend sent me
This week I have been mostly listening to Tangerine Dream, Lemon Jelly, Mr. Scruff and Cassette Boy.
edit: Haha. Calculus.
I tend to just pop my iPod/iTunes onto random, but that aside I've been listening to quite a bit of Neil Young and British Sea Power this past week.
Coincidentally, I've been listening to a couple of friend-produced compilations too. All good stuff.
This week I have mostly been listening to the latest album by Bon Jovi, Lost Highways.
Made me laugh too
Against Me! - New Wave. Picked it up a few days ago.
The Evens - Get Evens
Shut up! It is so!
And I think it's totally cool that Tegan (of Tegan and Sarah) does backup vocals on the track "Borne on the FM Waves of the Heart".
Arctic Monkeys (as always) and Hot Hot Heat, just to name a couple.
Kutless, Switchfoot, The Beatles, John Lennon, Lynryd Skynyrd and U2. Just to name a few. I'm listening to Switchfoot and the The Beatles the most out of them though.
Boards of Canada - Geogaddi (on vinyl ).
Very scarce and difficult to get hold of on vinyl. I've had it on CD for quite a while, but it just sounds almost completely different on Vinyl.
I've also downloaded Radiohead Live at Glastonbury 2003, which is a pretty outstanding performance. Battles - Mirrored has also made it's way into my playlist, along with Tom McRae - All Maps Welcome.
Betty Curse, Paramore, Chimaira, and Every Time I Die are the only things on my playlist. I can't hear out of my right ear that well because of the Sounds of the Underground concert a few days ago, so I'm not really in the mood to listen to music with one ear.
I've mostly been listening to Rush's newest album (Snakes and Arrows), but also queued up Queen - The Platinum Collection a few times.
My folks go away soon so I'm borrowing their record player (decks? whatever they're called. I've no idea ) and going through a few classics. They've literally got a small army of records. Human League, Bowie, ELO will be my friends soon.
I've been slowly building up the best bits of my dad's record collection (40 years of awesome albums and rare soul/funk singles, along with the odd bit of 80s electronic dance).
This week it's mostly podcasts with a bit of the new Tegan & Sara, the new New Pornographers, and a smattering of older electronica (Amon Tobin, Air, the Books) thrown in for flavor.
All in all, it looks to be a good week.
Daft Punk- Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger
Motion City Soundtrack- Better open the door
12 Stones- Crash
12 Stones- The way I feel
Switchfoot- Sooner or later
Snatch Soundtrack (Klint, Overseer, Oasis, Massive Attack, the Stranglers)
Rubberneckin'- Paul Oakenfold Remix
If I was president (live version from Chappelle's Show)- Wyclef Jean
Lump- Presidents of the Unites States of America
Big things poppin- T.I
and the usual suspects
-Random Drum and Bass/electronic music
The new Interpol is making me quite happy.
I've been mostly listening to:
I've been listening to:
You Say Party! We Say Die! - Lose All Time
Elton John - Rocket Man - The Definitive Hits
The White Stripes - Icky Thump
Feist - The Reminder
Okkervil River - The Stage Names (awesome album, not as dark as Black Sheep Boy, but good new direction)
Laura Veirs - Saltbreakers (love it, not quite Year of Meteors, but damn close)
Ben Harper - Lifeline (killer album, love it)
Sum 41 - Underclass Hero (overrated, total Blink/Green Day rip-off but worse, end with a wannabe Billy Joe acoustic solo track, throw in a few bland Enema of the State songs, and re-write Fat Lip as the opening track and you have the entire CD)
Plus tons of others, the new Feist, the new Tegan & Sara, Decemberists, Tilly and the Wall, some old school Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire, Amelie OST (always a fave), Kyo, then throw in a pinch of radio-friendly stuff (new Bravery stuff, Paramore, etc.)
All About Eve and Natalie Merchant are both still lighting my candle. I'm pretty sure I'm trapped in the late 80's but it's nice here.
