    Lykke Li off of our Benevolent Dictator's website. I'd previously dismissed her as potentially-interesting, but generally boring after hearing Little Bit on the radio, but I quite like Dance Dance Dance. Useless Factoid: Her name is a play off the Danish word for Happy.

    Yeah, me too. It took me an extra day or two to get around to playing the other track, and then it lived in the Winamp mix for weeks.

    Santogold - LES Artistes.
    This year's first out of nowhere track, kinda like a more laidback YYY's.

    - "Horses" - Patti Smith
    - "Let it Be" - Beatles
    - "Songs about fucking" - Big Black

    I started the week listening to Houdini by Melvins a lot. I've also been enjoying the Japanese cut of the new Boris album, Smile, 'though I'd be happier for fewer Pink Floyd moments.

    Absolutely in love with Dodos' Visiter and Fuck Buttons' Street Horrrsing. The latter is especially brilliant, sounding like an actual collaboration between Eluvium and JK Broaderick.

    Stainless Style by Neon Neon is a bit of a disappointment, 'though there are a few stunning tracks there. It's always the same, though, innit? Two of your favourite artists collaborate and the result is never as good as their own work.

    Fuck Buttons' album is really great, but I just don't understand why they have to scream like disturbed monkeys sometimes (with lots of delay, to add insult to injury). The second track of the album is so annoying because of this, I usually zap it and directly go to the third one. But the rest of the album is really excellent, so I guess it's ok...

    Heh, I WISH spring has sprung here, but not for a couple of weeks yet. . . .

    My wife is off in Texas performing for a month, so I made her a pile of compilation CDs and grabbed cool stuff for me as well :-):

    Flogging Molly: Float. Quite impressed with this, even if I can't make out all the lyrics to "Requiem for a Dying Song."
    Andrew Bird: Soldier On. A bit uneven, but some nice moments of melancholy and gravity.
    The Baltimore Consort & The Merry Companions: The Art of the Bawdy Song. Ah, old songs about sex and drinking. . . .
    Tinariwen: both Aman Iman and Amassakoul. I only recently discovered this band, and they are fantastic! Nice mix of mellow and strong tunes, with outlawed lyrics.
    Värttinä: Iki. Someday Finnish pop will rule the world!
    Interpol: Turn on the Bright Lights. Good stuff.
    Instinkt: Grum. Hard-rocking tunes with screaming hurdy-gurdys. Who knew they could make noises like that?
    Also listening to a lot of Kate Bush, Midnight Oil, and fiddle music.

    Those Poor Bastards: The Plague--More gothic doom country from the masters.
    Freeway: Free at Last--j'yeeeaaaah
    Allman Brothers: pretty much all of their stuff--mmmm southern rock....
    Bernard Dolan: The Failure--Apocalyptic spoken word album with a horror movie logic. The piece about Evel Kinevel is one of my favorite things ever.

    This goddamn amazing one-off from Carey Mercer of Frog Eyes a.k.a. Blackout Beach, "Claxxon's Lament". This guy just tosses off brilliant work on a 7" on a no-name label like it's nothing.

    The new Atlas Sound album, Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel

    That Panda Bear album from last year, Person Pitch. Still perfect for work

    Fugazi's END HITS is quickly turning into my favorite album of theirs

    Incessantly listening to my own demos, hoping to glean some kind of understanding of myself.

    OH and furthermore, did anybody else realize that BAUHAUS has just put out a new album? The thought actually horrifies me a little.
  9.  (1556.32)
    The new Bauhaus album is rather good, if you can forgive it for being nothing like a Bauhaus album at all.

    And I really mean NOTHING.

    DJ Rekha - 'Basement Bhangra Anthem'

    Dokkebi Q - 'Hardcore Cherry BonBon'

    KbN - '0.7'

    Basically found a site from SxSW that artists allowed free tracks to be put on. Grabbed a bunch and fell into listening to these fairly heavy.
