    Ooh, Underworld!
    Dusted off my copy of Second Toughest In The Infants this morning, been listening to it between phone calls at work. Damn fine album.

    Also dug out GITS:SAC soundtrack albums by Yoko Kanno - always amazed at the standards of production and musicianship, even on the most mediocre of jpop tracks.

    Looking forward to giving it a listen!

    Damn, excellent choices. I probably never make through a week without listening to "Sings Jacques Brel."
    "Tilt" usually comes up in rotation once a month.

    On the way to work it was:
    Lou Reed - Rock and Roll Animal (Not usually a fan of live versions of songs droning on for two to three times longer than the original, but these work.)
    Kraftwerk - Trans-Europe Express (I was reading "Eastern Standard Tribe" and this just seemed to fit.)

    Right now:
    2562 - Aerial (Pretty good Dubstep)

    I'm probably dumb for not knowing this, but just discovered records by Joe Lally, who was the bassist in Fugazi. Found this out through (track played in a "recommendation" station). Been listening to an album called NOTHING IS UNDERRATED. Very, very good. Sort of like Fugazi -- of course -- but bit more mellow.

    In contrast to the last few weeks where I have had nothing new of interest to listen to, I've discovered a lot of cool things to put into heavy rotation in the last few days.

    Motorpsycho - Little Lucid Moments (this is the one I'm playing the most, by far)
    U2 - Boy & October deluxe edition reissues
    Swervedriver - Ejector Seat Reservation
    All Else Failed - Good Enough For The Girls We Roll With
    Third Eye Blind - self-titled
    The Stone Roses - self-titled

    Still holding out from last week:
    Beck - Guero & Modern Guilt
    R.E.M. - Accelerate

    In my opinion, Jacques Brel was one of the best "French" singers/songwriters. So, when I found the versions by Mr. Walker, my natural curiosity starts its spinning. So, I found the Walker´s covers brilliant. And "Titl", it's a incredible kind of music, very narrative and dramatic but in a unique way.

    I've been listening to shudder Mindless Self Indulgence; like at all, which stuns me, because I've pretty much always hated them and everything they're connected to and represent.

    Blame Digitalyn, on twitter for that one.

    also listening to a lot of Emily Haines, after being reminded about that one here on another thread:

    lol. i thought msi's "we hate all of you, we suck, you're all idiots for liking us" shtick was actually pretty funny... it got old fast, though.
    they peaked with you'll rebel to anything.

    still have been singing the entirety of dr. horrible's soundtrack to myself all week.

    @collindeplancy - pixies and walker, very nice.

    just saw the faint play and so was listening to their new album, fasciinatiion. really like it so far.
    picked up some old the red paintings albums recently and so have been going through them.
    been on a big diamanda galas kick, la serpenta canta in particular.
    oh and the jamie saft trio's astaroth from john zorn's masada series has been steadily blowing me away a little more each time i hear it.

    @heilbrittanica & @outlawpoet--I really only like "Frankenstein Girls" where MSI are concerned. It's another version of "digital hardcore" a la Atari Teenage Riot, but channeled from the id of a horny/frustrated teenage boy. I think that rules. But then after that album, I feel like they got more standardly industrial, which doesn't work for me as well.

    @BriansAWildDowner--I bought a Thermals CD for $1 from a sidewalk sale yesterday. Couldn't believe some of the great stuff they had for that cheap. It was "the Body The blood the Machine", which is my favorite of their albums. So good.

    I just got Peelander-Z's Happee Mania, so that's sure to be in rotation all week, along with the the usual Nick Cave bombardment, as well as my new found love for PJ Harvey, awesome music.

    shes amazing. if youre new to her, i would say MAKE SURE to get "to bring you my love". classic.

    I've been listening to an absurd amount of Nightwish lately, even though I'm not much of a metalhead. It's mainly been the Tarja Turunen stuff, but I do like the new album with Anette Olzon...different as it may be.

    This is strangely out of character, since my musical tastes usually run closer to the Beatles.
