    The rather fantastic new Los Campesinos! album.

    That and John McCain's death-rattle.

    This last week my sense of purpose and imagination has been dominated by Halloween and Fallout 3 (xbox360) so if this a reflection on my playlist, well it is really.

    Enslaved – Vertebrae - Post-Black Metal, among Norway's finest still going
    Grayceon - This Grand Show - Cello fronted progressive SF Bay Post-Rock/Metal
    King Diamond - Abigail - 80's theatrical Metal goodness
    Mercyful Fate - Melissa - A Little more of the preceding
    Cynic - Traced in Air - Progggy, technical, jazzyish Death Metal from the pioneers off a 16 year hiatus
    NIN - The Fragile - Listening to lots of NIN for the upcoming show here, we don't get shit here in Bumfuck, Egypt - sometimes I hate living in B.E.,sometimes I love it because of the lack of people and abundance of land
    Agalloch - The White E.P. - U.S. Masters of Pagan dark neo-folk Metal, great Wickerman samples usage to theme this one
    Anathema - Hindsight - U.K.'s long running emotional post-rock/metal giants, a little mopey on the vox, but for fans of past albums to hear past songs get acoustic makeovers it works
    The Album Leaf - One Day I'll Be on Time - More sad kinda post-rock stuff

    the Ólafur Arnalds CD i bought at the gig the other week turned out to be an EP, even though it was £10! about 20 minutes of music over 5 tracks, none of which really live up to the live potential. oh well, its pleasant enough.
    the nanowrimo write-ins are taking place in one of the coolest places in glasgow - cafe, bar, venue and record shop. i bought a handful of things in there yesterday and am now working my way through them:
    kraftwerk live dvd, which i don't have to hand.
    jesu - why we are not perfect
    juana moina - un dia
    pita - get off
    quinoline yellow - cyriack parasol
    mum - summer makes good

    and then i went to see micah p hinson live, who i've kind of heard bits of on youtube, but didn't really expect to be so style.

    i like random on Itunes, tonight, apart from mining a heavy kraftwerk seam, random has brought me sun ra, william shatner (his latest 'hasbeen' is great), fatima mansions, lee hazlewood, shonen knife, brazilian girls, michael nesmith, capsule (a japanese band who have worked with daft punk), chrome hoof (a twelve piece thrash/speed/metal/disco combo who wear silver robes), john coltrane, ice cube, boredoms (saw these live this year, best gig ever, beating off chrome hoof oo-er), yello, mudhoney and sir mixalot 'freak momma' from the judgment night soundtrack, some of the angel heart OST, augustus pablo and fleurety. fleurety are an avant garde death metal band with jazz and folky sort of influences, kind of hard to pin down. and whenever I hear 'chestnut mare' by the byrds, I want to catch a horse.

    eliot suzzman came up too. he's cheerful!

    a new friend has a bunch of mixes posted on his blog. one, called "FUCK THE FUCKING ART SCHOOL FUCKHEADS," has two amazing IDM-y electro tracks:
    Sybarite - "Identity #2," and
    Chequerboard - "Peopledust."
    upon further investigations the rest of their respective oeuvres are middling, but there are a few gems. those songs, however, have not left the playlist.

    @Warren, if you're looking for more postrock stuff, a lot of people missed The Beans (Vancouver band, not to be confused with Beans, the rapper) and Emery Reel (i hardly know anything about them but For And Acted Upon Through Diversions was a big hit with me in the early years). then again, who needs more postrock?

    At the moment, I´m listening to a bootleg I made of Ningizzida, who are a sort of improvised tribal raga outfit, and fabulous.

    oh, and has anyone heard of Yagya? they're usually minimalist-ambient, but they stray into the dubstep world occasionally ("Their Blood Is Black And Yellow" off of Will I Dream During The Process, for one). or should i repost this in the dubstep thread?

    improvised tribal raga outfit

    that is the newest sub genre i have heard of. i always love hearing about this kinda fringe shit.
