    Bat for Lashes - Fur & Gold LP because I'd forgotten just how good she is on record.
    Any of the new Beck stuff I can get my hands on because I'm convinced he may be on a return to form.
    Bert Jansch - Bert & John LP. A classic example of Jansch's collaborative brilliance.
    Sunset - Loveshines, Part II. Interesting new find I can't quite define yet.
    Ha Ha Tonka - 12 inch 3 speed Oscillating Fan. Hilarious and summer fun filled country rock that doesn't take it self serisouly, thankfully.

    SIN ORDEN/ CONDENADA split 7" (honestly, havent listened to the condenada side yet. SO is blistering chicago thrash that doesnt like to be compared to los crudos, even though that really is the band they sound most similar to)
    SWARM/FORCEFEDGLASS split pic 7" (hahaha, found it!)
    MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE AS THE BLACK PARADE (its been a few weeks, forgot just how much i love this)
    RED LIGHT STING/ HOT HOT HEAT split lp
    CINEMA EYE- some nerve lp (^^^synth/punk snottiness)

    the radio- i almost never listen to this, and yet for some reason i was listening to mid nineties alternative everytime i got in the car this weekend. sponge, stp, blind melon, pearl jam, oh yeah

    I tried to post to this a few hours ago but Whitechapel blew a gasket on me. Glad it's cooperating now.

    TRAFFIC - Mr. Fantasy
    WIPERS - Youth Of America; Over the Edge (both the expanded, remastered versions from the first 3 albums box set)
    PARAMORE - Riot!
    LEATHERFACE - Fill Your Boots

    ...and a bunch of CDs I'm reviewing for the next issue of Ghetto Blaster. So far, particularly impressed by HUNGRY GIANT's "[under]Mining Skies".

    The Tigerlillies- (A decade+ of depraved cabaret, and yes, it's all good, and yes they'll be heard at my wedding in less than a month)

    @Noukon

    I can't get into No Substance, for whatever reason. It's the only album of theirs I feel like that with.

    I think I'm too deep in the discovery stage to judge it at this point. I really like "Hear It", but nothing else stands out.

    If I recall, that was the track I liked, as well.

    The tempo switch in that track is pretty great.

    If my memory serves me correctly, they used part of it for the menu in Crazy Taxi. Ah, the good old days.

    I wasted far too many hours of life on Crazy Taxi.

    It's a weird dream of mine (a life goal, as it were) to own a Crazy Taxi arcade cabinet. Someday...
