    mostly the music in my head, which has been:

    a selection from dr. horrible's sing-along blog
    plane, robot, dinosaur- super 8-bit brothers (a video game-themed side project of tub ring)
    this is hell- elvis costello (& the attractions? i can't remember... i want to make a music video for this song so badly)

    and probably bits of everything i've ever listened to ever. i get a lot of music stuck in my head

    i actually thought hard about this to remember as much as i could of the past few days

    BLOOD BROTHERS-march on electric children 12" ( the album where they stepped to the big kids table and solidified their dominance of a very specific sub segment of chaotic hardcore-plus the last track sounds like what i imagine hardcore would have sounded in the 1920s if it existed)

    SHARK ATTACK-blood in the water 7" (pissed off gruff HC)
    THE VICIOUS-obsessive 7" (the hollowed out ghost of LA seventies punk)
    DEAR LANDLORD/OFF WITH THEIR HEADS split 7" (DL is my favorite pop punk band in the country right now. crack a beer and jam it loud)
    FIGHT CLUB 2 12" (more fucked up electronics)
    LAWRENCE ARMS- oh, calcutta cd (my previous favorite pop punk band. the sound of chicago personified)
    MARILYN MANSON- golden age of grotesque cd (better than the newer album? yes.)
    PANIC AT THE DISCO-pretty.odd. ( i cant believe im saying this, but probably my favorite album of 2008.)
    DALEK/ MEGATON split 12" (the only hip hop record i own, i think. everything sounds broken and ghostly)
    THE WHO- best of (its the only who i have on cd for the car.)

    @joe.distort--God, yeah, that Blood Brothers album is outstanding. I should get that back out sometime soon.

    I just got back from Clifftop, West Virginia (the Appalachian String Band Music Festival). Three days of non-stop music and dancing under tarps and tents, the biggest, baddest thunderstorm I've ever experienced, and some pretty mindblowing barbecue ribs. I am no longer drunk. I think. Sang a lot of hot jazz, did a lot of flatfooting. Most of the old-time music that I've been mainlining all weekend doesn't exist in a recorded form that accurately conveys what a great jam sounds like. There are exceptions, obviously, and there are amazing trad bands that maintain their amazing-ness on record, but there aren't a ton of them.

    Some good friends of mine made an album that is as close as you can get, via audio recording, to standing next to an outdoor session. If you're the kind of person who gets a thrill from that sort of authenticity, and who enjoys fiddle tunes played by kick-ass musicians, you should seek it out. Except. Well. They don't have a website. As far as the circulatory system of new media is concerned, they don't exist.

    The band is called Light and Hitch. Easiest way to get the thing is to contact Joe Dejarnette at Truthface Recordings, or go to a fiddle festival and get rained on.

    In keeping with the "music frustratingly inaccessible to the wide Internets" theme, Corsair is a great new band from my town, and if they're going to have a damn MySpace page, they should put some audio on it. They're killer. Heavy, wailing, shredding, thumping, seventies-style rock badassery. They only exist live, at this point. If you are for some unimaginable reason in Charlottesville, VA, on the eighth, go to the Outback Lodge and get your face melted. That's where I'll be.

    I have their oath that they will be recording at some point, and when they do, I'll share and direct you to the source.

    Mostly London Zoo by The Bug, which is ferocious and kinda bonkers.

    And Eels' Electro-Shock Blues some more, because it's impossibly brilliant.

    @Old Moon Face:
    Yeah, Eels stuff has far more staying power for me than I anticipated when I first got into it. It has really stuck around, and I find myself throwing it into my work mixes all the time.

    Revisiting Fu Manchu - definitely the most under-rated Kyuss spin-off.
    And enjoying the World Music Awards Prom - #17, if you're interested.

    Among other things, the latest Lullatone album, The Bedtime Beat. To, uh, quote myself, it's "so cute I could vomit kittens".

    I am listening to loads of Megadeth. They rock.

    Also Mike Oldfield collection. He seems to range from greatness to amateurish bedroom electronica.

    Also The Specials hits.

    The Soundtrack to Boogie Nights.

    And 80's soundtrack master :Claudio Simonetti and a bit of Rick Springfield.

    i luv me music I do.
