    Burial - Untrue

    My friend recommended this to me a few weeks ago, but I only just got around to listening to it. I love it - everything sounds like it's underwater. Should I look out for more dubstep, or is this pretty much the peak?

    Lunachicks - Luxury Problem
    L7 - Smell the Magic

    Girl punk-y bands are my musical comfort food. Dunno why.
  2.  (2530.3)
    "The Boatman's Call" - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
    "On Strike" - Echo and the Bunnymen
    "Dustbowl"- Head of David
    "Passover"- The Black Angels
    "All Things Can Be Mended"- Harper Lee

    Hell, I'd pick that up for the title alone.

    a lot of paper rival's dialog, still.
    still a beautiful album.

    Right now, I'm listening to Nitin Sawhney's entire discography. It's very, very good.

    SVARTE GREINER - Til Seters (A Room Forever Limited Edition Box)

    I cannot recommend this entire series enough. Its curator, Joshua Zucker, also does the Roadside Picnic podcast, which has given me untold hours of joy and inspiration.

    I don't know if I'm liking The Black Angels' Directions To See A Ghost better than/as much as/less than Passover -- it's... hm. It's, well the recording quality seems a little bit better, but it's taken the edge off. Or put a new edge on. I can't decide. It's less Vietnam, and more the drugs to beat the PTSD after, y'know? Maybe it's a logical progression. It's got that drone-edges-into-dizzy-psychedelic edge that really sounds like painkillers and self-medication, to beat a metaphor. I like "Mission District", "Science Killer", and "You on the Run".

    The Aspirins For My Children - myspace page: just discovered this New Cross based blipman & I think I may have found one of my new favourite club sounds.
    Nick Jaina - Luck & Winding Sheet: some simple, beautiful orchestration over a dark Waits-reminiscent voice that doesn't need to Waits.
    Jan Gruenfeld - Enjoy The Silence: a great cover on a good album.

    Okkervil River - The Stage Names: Heard them through Was one of those bands I read the name of enough that I felt I didn't need to actually listen to them. I was wrong. Once you get past the first song (which sounds a bit too much like the singer's channeling Adam Duritz from Counting Crows for my taste), it's smooth, emotive sailing.

    Cat Power - The Greatest: Certainly not an upper, but happiness in music usually equates with shittiness. I'd heard once upon a time that Ryan Adams was looking to work with her, and am now hearing why. Boozy music and a thick voice do the trick almost every time.

    I discovered The Black Angels at a radio program and, so, this is the kind of music that feed my spirit very, very well. My fav ones at "Directions" (I prefer "Directions..." over "Passover", but it's only a personal and incidental vision): "Doves" and "Deer-Ree-Shee".
