    So what are you listening to right now?

    New week's releases are up at - just choose a genre from left and click "magic mix" to stream excerpts from the new releases.

    I must admit, most of the week I was listening to the last three tracks on Titus Andronicus' AIRING OF GRIEVANCES pretty obsessively. Now, I'm listening through a gig of mailed-in songs for the new season of The 4am.

    I just put the Pandora app on my iPhone. It's sort of a LastFM-ish thing. Type in an artist or song and it will start playing shit for you. So far it's pretty damn good. Bouncing back and forth between streams created by typing Ryan Adams and Motorhead.

    Been listening to the 3rd disc of Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs rather obsessively lately. All three discs are brilliant.

    Also: Tom Waits' Alice
  1.  (3111.6)
    Clint Mansell's The Fountain Soundtrack
    NIN's Ghost thingy
    5ive's Hersperus

    not in the mood to hear any voices today...
  2.  (3111.7)
    Black Keys, Attack & Release
    Nas, N!gger
    Fat Ray and Black Milk, The Set Up
    Alvin Youngblood Hart, Big Mama's Door
  3.  (3111.8)
    that pandora thing is pretty cool, i assumed it would be useless for me but was shocked when RISTTETYT and CRUCIAL UNIT came up.

    some selections from the weekend:
    TRAPPED IN A SCENE comp lp (grindviolence and blastbeats=yes)
    HOT CROSS- risk revival lp (still sad they are gone...)
    FIGHT CLUB 12" (would be worth it just for the knifehandchop song alone...breakcore)
    SHIZUO- sweat 7"
    HATRED SURGE/ ENDLESS BLOCKADE split lp ( HS- blindingly fast grindviolence, EB- so sludgy it hurts)

    Mostly stuff I already own:

    The Dresden Dolls - entire discography
    The Mountain Goats - ditto
    Iron & Wine's Woman King EP
    9 LP set of 'hits of the 50s and 60s' which was a staple of my childhood. My mother brought it down for me recently and accidentally left it on a train. Thankfully, two weeks later, someone handed it into Lost Property at Marylebone, so I hauled arse over there (note for the future: lost property doesn't open until noon!) and picked it up.

    Some new stuff:

    The World Inferno/Friendship Society's Red Eyed Soul which my flatmate picked up at their London gig on Friday. I had tickets but had to go to a work shindig instead, woe. But it's really awesome and I'll def. have to catch 'em next time.
  4.  (3111.10)
    - London Zoo - The Bug (excelent release)
    - Pale Sketches - Jesu
    - Beautiful Future - Primal Scream (it's not so good as "XTRMNTR", but still enjoyable)

    And Head of David's "Dustbowl".
  5.  (3111.11)
    The Dresden Dolls - entire discography

    The Dolls are friends of a friend, so I will always endorse them.

    Tell me of the Woman King EP by Iron & Wine, I do not believe I have heard it.

    Stuff that's made it's way into my ears recently? Listening to Botch's 'We are the Romans' as I type.

    Genghin Tron - Board up the House
    Tom Waits - Orphans
    Dave Brubeck - Take Five
    A smattering of Chris Connelly from the Shipwreck album
    more Meshuggah than is probably healthy

    All I can think of off the top of my head.
  7.  (3111.14)
    no amount of meshuggah can ever be unhealthy.

    Clint Mansell's Fountain sandwiched between Steve Reich's Piano Phase, a couple of Aphex Twin Druqks, and spliced with Peter Gabriel's Passion.

    Overheard through the headphones is RunDMC My Adidas and It's Tricky.

    There was some David Bowie too.
    • CommentTimeJul 28th 2008

    @warren - Woman King is a six song EP, pretty much all the songs revolve around female characters and they mostly all have some sort of biblical/spiritual connection/undertone. Lilith and Jezebel have their own songs (Evening on the Ground [Lilith's Song] and Jezebel respectively) and I'm particularly fond of the title track. It's probably, of all Sam Beam's output, my favourite.

    There's a pretty good live version of Jezebel up on Failing that, I can bung some sample mp3s over to your gmail.

    A bunch of black metal - Burzum, Mayhem, etc.

    I don't know why.

    The World/Inferno Friendship Society - i love all of their stuff, if you like Dresden Dolls i highly suggest checking them out. Actually the Dresden Dolls' drummer is currently the WIFS drummer too.

    Jonathan Coulton - mostly listenin to his song Still Alive again and again

    The Gun Club - just have some songs of theirs i got off iTunes, my favorites are The Lie and Like Calling Up Thunder

    @halcyonday - Woman King is one of their best...

    I have been waking up to Burial (U Hurt Me is actually great to hear first thing in the morning). That aside, I've been overdoing the dub reggae. Lots of Augustus Pablo, King Tubby, and Horace Andy.

    Current obsessions:
    Califone - Spider's House
    Penguin Cafe Orchestra - Perpetuum Mobile
    DJ Krush - Final Home (Piano Mix)
    Camera Obscura - If Looks Could Kill
