    This week I have been obsessed with the Dresden Dolls - I'm probably very late to the party, but wound up in that direction thanks to a Neil Gaiman blog and now can't get enough. Every day I seem to be hooked on a different track, which must be a good sign.

    I am now enjoying a glass of wine and watching their DVD.

    And according to a forum post by Amanda Palmer of said band, her solo album has leaked to the torrent-sphere.

    -quite a bit of mindless self indulgence (excluding their new album if, because jimmy urine decided that in order to fully rip off his impressionable teenaged fans, he should start writing crap music)
    -paper rival's dialog
    -elvis costello's brutal youth

    and a bunch of music i listen to every week.

    Something Old: Failure's Magnified and Fantastic Planet. Most words fail me regarding the production on these two (FP in particular); every instrument, every note is in its place. You can choose to focus on any one element of a song, or let the wall of it collapse all around you.

    Something New: Paul Westerberg's new offering 49:00 (available for 49 American pennies, the mechanics of which are discussed elsewhere on Whitechapel). It's not a polished or organized affair by any stretch, but it is entertaining and never dull. I especially love the layering and abrupt cuts. Sounds like your old FM radio antenna's going bad and you're ping-ponging between stations, especially when the Replacements-esque "covers medley" begins. Thanks, Paul.

    Something Borrowed: Mark Lanegan's Here Comes That Weird Chill. Probably the best non-rock voice in rock. Saw him with his Gutter Twins side-project the night before Easter this year and he was goddamned riveting. I've seen him live a few times, but this was different. Still as a statue all night, but projected... life, I guess.

    Something Blue: Superdrag- Wrong Vs. Right Doesn't Matter. It may not be 12-bar structured verses of American Southern drawl and "hellhounds on my trail" (though they are from Tennessee), but if you're spitting out "you're the bastard embalmed in disaster", I'm not going to dispute your blues.

    So that's it, Whitechapel. I'm ready to walk down the aisle.

    Listening to The National - Boxer. Listening the album pretty much on repeat because its providing the perfect backdrop to my melancholy. Was thinking at work how some things sound so much better when you`re feeling depressed or angry or hell even happy. Then how reliable is this reality if it fucking changes constantly. Probably cuz I`ve been obsessing about PK Dick. That my digression, but thats what I`m listening to to today nevertheless. Tommorow may be different. And time for another drink.

    The new Immortal Technique album, The 3rd World. Properly angry rap music.

    I am way late to the respective parties, but Santogold and Uffie have insinuated themselves onto my porto-musicorium.
