    I've been going on a 90s indie rock kick - Belly, Afghan Whigs, Pixies, Pavement, Built to Spill, Dinosaur Jr, Liz Phair, Railroad Jerk, John Spencer Blues Explosion, Sonic Youth...

    I'm in love with Afghan Whigs' "Black Love", thanks to my friend Jeremy.

    I've just recently devised a whole list of songs I plan to get to eventually... when I get the time. Unfortunately, I don't listen to my playlist nearly as much as I should, of course as I type this I'm sitting alone, quietly, in my room, with winamp open, and no music coming from it. I should probably listen to some music.

    Haifa Wehbe -- Naughty

    Her stuff has a nice, creeping undertone beneath the fun and thumping surface. It's all gloss, but it's gloss that isn't afraid to cut your heart out when it's ready. Unrepentantly shallow, I'd say.

    Mind you, I can't understand a word of the language, I'm just going by the music.

    Fogus, I discovered Portishead for the first time about a year ago. It's pretty embarrassing, running around talking about this brilliant thing you've just found and being told by everyone that they're old news. I mean, I had heard of Portishead before that, of course, and knew the songs that were on the radio in the 90's, but I never really bothered. I think Beth Gibbons' eyes creeped me out for some reason. I had a similar experience when I actually decided to listen to ten by Pearl Jam in 2002, after nearly a decade of making fun of them, and finding that, "Evenflow" aside, they were really a pretty great rock band. Alas, the peril of being a snob.

    This week, I'm homesick for America, and listening to records by my friends.

    I'm currently listening to 'The Covers Record' by Cat Power. I'm not totally sure how much I like it...I haven't turned it off, so it can't be too bad. I only got it in the first place because it has a cover of 'Sea of Love' on.

    I've been listening to Tom Waits's "Small Change" all morning and after reading this The Mountain Goats We Shall All Be Healed. It is most excellent, I had a hard time getting into the earlier stuff but the most recent albums I thought were good, having a little something besides the guitar is a good addition.

    It's great to see lots of Tom Waits fans on here. They don't come much better than that.

    I've been listening to a lot of the new Birthday Massacre album Walking with Strangers. That and the Neil Gaiman compilation, Where's Neil When You Need Him? Fantastic albums, I'd urge anyone to check them out. You can never go wrong with Morrissey or The Smiths either.

    Well... listening to the freak angel radio blog and have Spacemen 3 on. Haven't heard them on my playlist in a while. Good stuff.

    he Mountain Goats We Shall All Be Healed.

    I'm a huge MG fan. If you need any additional records, feel free to ask. I made a MG mixtape available on my blag while back, but megaupload borked it.

    "I've been listening to a lot of the new Birthday Massacre album Walking with Strangers."

    Ah, cool, I didn't know they had a new album. I found their old stuff a bit hit-and-miss, but when I liked a track, I *really* liked a track. Hope the new one's matured a bit.

    "This week, I'm homesick for America, and listening to records by my friends."

    ^_^ I'm enjoying your friends' records.

    The husband type creature has been listening to a lot of DJ Shadow, therefore so have I. But I think I'm going to insist on either Dr. Octagon or Stereolab later... snow does that to me...

    I actually heavily prefer Walking With Strangers over the old album. Not that that album wasn't a good intro to their sound but this definitely kicks it up a notch.

    NWA, Queens of the Stone Age, Nas, some godawful Biggie Smalls remixes that'll soon be consigned to a digital graveyard and a Ben Folds live show that comes on about four times louder than anything else and near blows my face off before I can get to the volume control.
