    This is just too fantastic for words: Stevie Wonder on Sesame Street playing Superstition. Not only is the music fabulous, there is also a kid ROCKING OUT on the fire escape.

    That clip kicked my ass as much now as it did when I first saw it on the original show. Utter classic!

    The new Ladytron, Velocifero, is brilliant.

    Other than that, I've been stuck in the past listening to Too Dark Park - Skinny Puppy and Violator - Depeche Mode.

    The Slip is surprisingly good. I've not enjoyed a new NIN album at all this decade until now.

    Still loving Nouns by No Age.

    I've also been listening today to The Dusty Foot on the Road, an incredible live album by Somalian/Canadian rapper K'Naan.

    NIN - The Slip. Seems like its two good singles, and a bunch of filler. Great thats its free. Its my theory the Rez wants to get off his head again, so the lyrics are him trying his best to stay straight.

    Dan Le Sac and Scroobius Pip - Angles. Le Sac's music is the best electronic stuff I've heard in ages. Better than Crystal Castles (which is still in my car, after three weeks). Pip's rapping is pretty strong. My highlight is 'Letter from God to Man' which is the best use of a sample ever, and the final lyric '...this apologies to Mother Nature, coz I created you!' and then the next secind the distorted Thom Yorke kicks in has given me MASSIVE FUCKING CHILLS down my spine on every listen this week. The title track is pretty strong and Magician's Apprentice has the best music ever.

    Death Cab... - Narrow Stairs. Strong first track. Amazing first track. But only three other good songs. No Sunshine sounds like Jimmy Eat world circa Bleed American (but in a good way). Cath... made me well up. Gibbards voice is amazing. I also listened to Plans because its just better.

    I'm trying to get into Echo and the Bunnymen, but McCulloch (is that spelt correctly?) is a pretty poor singer. But The Cutter and Killing Moon are still great moments. (Also made me watch Donnie Darko).

    I also read Gillen's Phonogram last week, so I'm slowly cueing up all my Britpop albums to listen to this week. Best of the Manic's in the car, until I can find my copy of Holy Bible.

    Also, Shonnen Knife's covedr of On Top of the World is being listened to a lot.

    Thinking about my comment on NIN's the Slip, does anyone remember a rubbish Britpop group called Charlies Angels? They released on single with something like fourteen B-sides. I bought it because of the gimmick, then gave it away.

    i need to go home and listen to the INDEX FOR POTENTIAL SUICIDE 12". i am pretty sure its the only way to get the songs to stop repeating in my head.

    Based on the list of your electronica phase, I'd recommend listening to Juno Reactor with me.

    Everyone's upset by their latest release seeming more chill-pop than dance. It's one guy constantly working with different artists, so you're going to get a lot of mixed elements no matter where you start. I'd say the same of Meat Beat Manifesto, though the results are seperately awesome.


    Does listening to my wife play Tori Amos and Dresden Dolls (who I'll be seeing tonight!) count for this thread...or does it just count as bragging? ;)

    i think ill be seeing the dresden dolls tomorrow, but only if my friends are working the door. $25 shows are waaaay too much, plus i dont like ever having to pay at the venue that its at in phx.

    Ok, the end of the month seems to be shifting towards Scott Walker. If you haven't heard The Drift yet, remedy the situation as soon as humanly possible.

    Soul Coughing - Lemon Lime
    Eleni Mandell - Nightmare Song (She has a gritty noir sound kind of like if you crossed Tom Waits and PJ Harvey. I'm pretty sure she's done some work with Tom Waits' producer, too.)

    (These songs are a nice change from the Eurovision songs that have been in my head for the past 2 days straight.)

    @babymole - I'm so disappointed by Angles. For every clever or witty lyric, there are ten that are pious and preachy. I expected much better.

    Right now I'm addicted to the new Annie single, I Know Ur Girlfriend Hates Me. Perfect pop. Also the new Audion single, Billy Says Go, and, for some reason, I felt compelled to download Busta Rhymes' old Woo Hah!!! I Got You All In Check. I seriously need to invest in the Busta Rhymes back catalogue.

    Oh! And donwload this: Audiobytes for Autobots.

    The new Opeth (Watershed) and Cult of Luna (Eternal Kingdom) are wearing out the speakers this week, along with a big dose of Neurosis, The Tuss and the new Ladytron and Genghis Tron records. The new Dresden Dolls is sitting here but haven't listened as yet. Have to be in the right mood for the Dolls and I haven't found that mood yet.

    Fink - Distance & Time - plucked from the soundtrack of jPod (a Canadian TV show based on the Douglas Coupland book). I thoroughly recommend you all to download the show + album - like, right now.

    I subsequently found out that he is from sunny Brighton. Always heartening to find a homegrown talent.

    Lots of Bonobo - because why the hell not.

    LCD Soundsystem - Sound of Silver (yeah, okay, the GTA IV buy bomb got into my head - what can I say, I'm only subhuman).

    Oszibarack - Plim Plum Plam - mad music from Poland.
