    New week, new month. New songs are up at Weather's getting a titch nicer here (when it's not blustering spring rains); anyone swinging over to warmer music, yet?

    (Edit to add: Haha, Dan, I think we hit post at the same time. I swept yours, but go ahead and repost, thanks. You impatient UK folks need to remember Warren's out for a bit, and we're running on California time for a few days, yet...!)

    So far this week...

    Elusive, Sisters of Mercy, Uninvited Guest and Robyn Hitchcock and Ghosts I by NiN.

    I'm definitely going to enjoy Ghosts rather a lot...

    Looking forward to Go Away White and Dig Lazarus Dig too, Amazon should have them both sent to me sometime this week. :D

    My band made a 72-hour record this past weekend. We call it Pizza Party. It's supposed to be a mess:

    It's free under a CC license. Give it a listen, and let me know what you think. The whole idea is to streamline the music production-- and get it to the consumer as fast as possible and as cheaply as possible without, you know, sucking (too hard).

    @ariana : Did wonder where it went. :)

    Well, this week I'm listening to

    Nine Inch Nails - Ghosts I -IV
    Kingdom of Sorrow
    Mark Ronson - Version

    And Mary-Anne Hobbs' experimental show on BBC iPlayer. Last I heard her on the radio she was presenting the Rock Show but now it would seem she is the champion of the dubstep\grime community. Shows how much attention I pay.
    • CommentTimeMar 3rd 2008
    Yeah, the BBC have a habit of being able to spontaneously change the speciality of their presenters. I don't trust it, and I worked for 'em for years and years. I distinctly remember Annie Nightingale referring to "New School Breakbeat..." when Nu Skool Breaks came along for those D&B-heads whose speed dealers were on voicemail, and not really believing her.

    This week, so far, I'm revisiting some swirly Verve, working to Adam Freeland's Back To Mine and some of that minimal electro stuff. Going to tackle Dig, Lazarus, Dig when I've got the house to myself. And playing anything that will help me forget I spend good money on The Imagined Village.

    • CommentTimeMar 3rd 2008
    Rasputina - O Perilous World (the only thing I'm going to miss about working in a music venue is getting to hang out with these guys after the show--fun people.)
    Tiger Lillies - Bad Blood and Blasphemy
    Book of Knots - Traineater
    Faun Fables - Mother Twilight
    Saul Williams - Niggy Tardust
    Burial- Untrue
    Stolen Babies - There Be Squabbles Ahead

    Actually, I'm a late adopter of strange stuff, so most this is a year or two old and at best a few months old.

    Currently relistening to And Their Refinement Of The Decline - from Stars of the Lid

    In for a long night of work and I could use something calm and shimmery in the background.
    • CommentTimeMar 3rd 2008
    Wow haven't been here in awhile glad you guys got a new music section up. I'm listening to the new NIN album, that was dropped sunday night with no warning or ads for it. Its all instrumental and you can download it for free check it out. Its called Ghosts <a href=""> . Its very nice stuff.
    • CommentTimeMar 3rd 2008
    currently listening to almost everything that was in Tacopunch's "lets all post some mixes" thread. That and anything and everything you can get for free off the internets (Such as The4am and free radio, creative commons albums, etc etc etc...)
    Since I'm such a nice guy I'll post another friends site (posted one as my contribution to Tacopunch's thread)
    • CommentTimeMar 3rd 2008
    Lots of Cat Power. This album is really floating my boat.

    Also a fair bit of New York Dolls, 'cause I saw them again on Saturday night.
    • CommentTimeMar 4th 2008
    Oh. Also a whole lot of Lamb.
    At this very moment Between Darkness and Wonder, but unless my mood changes substantially I expect to listen to at least Fear of Fours and quite probably What Sound before I move on to anything else.

    Listening (this week):

    Atomine Elektrine - "Binomial Fusion"
    Acid Mothers Temple and the Cosmic Inferno - "Ominous from the Cosmic Inferno"
    (Two wonderful releases by Essence Music label)
    Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - "Dig, Lazarus, Dig"
    • CommentTimeMar 4th 2008
    Finally listening to Mono's album from last year (Gone).

    It's lovely so far. Sometimes plaintive; often staggeringly pretty; generally the perfect kind of noisy details; not infrequently all of these things.

    I don't know how I missed this before.

    And I should probably stop telling you every single thing I listen to this evening/morning/whatever, so I will.

    Enjoying Quaristice a lot more than any Autechre release since LP5. Gives me many happy brain feelings. Also giving time to Oracular Spectacular by MGMT, For Hero: For Fool by Subtle, and I'm still hopelessly addicted to the new Hot Chip album.

    Also, these things:
    Awesome Tapes from Africa
    dEUS w/ Karin Dreijer Andersson
    Does it Offend You, Yeah?
