    Pale Young Gentlemen. Like the strings and dervish beat on songs like The Crook of My Good Arm; not sold on the vocals but not immediately turned off, either.

    Considering the new Raveonettes single. Wanting Oasis to just go away.

    (Also waiting until nightfall to get a better listen at the Castanets. They don't do well in bright daylight.)

    Just got my hands on the Juno Reactor discography, and it's been busy taking me back to my discovery of industrial/tech music. I love it.

    Picked up Tom Morello's second solo disc as The Nightwatchman, "The Fabled City", and been listening to it constantly; picked up Fleet Foxes' eponymous debut, haven't listened to it yet.

    The Nightwatchman is growing on me; seriously liking the tracks "Lazarus On Down" (f. Serj Tankian), "The Fabled City", and (ironically enough) "The Lights Are On In Spidertown".

    Pandora: Lateralus Radio I created it long, long ago and forgot about it for a while. But I'm back to it for a little while. Seed artists include My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Lacuna Coil, Rammstein and of course Tool.

    I believe anyone can tune in.

    Dethklok - The Dethalbum
    black Flag - Slip it In
    black flag - Loose Nut
    Nine Inch Nails - And all That Could Have Been. this one is hanging in there, because i'm starting to get tired of the other ones.

    whatever gives me energy. Really wish a new Dethklok album would come out, the songs in Season 2 of Metalocalypse sound awesome.

    Just discovered liking the current Mars Volta album very much.
    Listened to new Mogwai a bit, which is okay, but not more than that.
    Listened to new Burst album and decided to give it some more tries ...

    @ales kot: just to mention it - "alles kot" in german would mean something like "everything shit".

    Been cranking up Louis XIV for a drawing/homework party. It's music you want to flirt with.

    I am leaning heavily on the excellent new Nightmares On Wax album, Thought So.... ALso, by stark contrast, Slipknot's Iowa. I'm doing these two back-to-back a lot for some reason.

    I keep trying to like Just A Souvenir by Squarepusher, but it is VERY DISAPPOINTING. Even Do You Know Squarepusher was better than this. Tom Jenkinson can do better than this. Apparently there is an album's worth of material from his sessions with Brian Eno and Herbie Hancock, so why he's giving us this half-arsed effort instead of that is particularly frustrating.

    I'm also thoroughly enjoying Red, Yellow & Blue by Born Ruffians.
