    Asobi Seksu....mmmm , shoegazy.

    Battles...clever yet stupid.

    Belbury Poly....haunty.

    The Chameleons....rain-soaked delay-addled pretentious majesty. Should have been bigger than The Stone Roses.
  3.  (505.5)
    Chuck Berry - You Never Can Tell

    In case you think you've heard this somewhere but can't quite remember: John and Uma dancing in Pulp Fiction.

    Cadence Weapon - Breaking Kayfabe
    - Older album from chiptunesy Canadian rapper, I like it a lot, and hope that his new stuff brings the chiptunes to the fore.

    Electric Six - I Shall Exterminate Etc...
    - The sound of a novelty band not being a novelty band.

    Fort Minor - The Rising Tied
    - Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park's solo album. I liked the Linkin Park remix album a lot more than the real album (I'm talking about their first album, name escapes me) which had a real futurist hip-hop vibe to it, and suggested that Shinoda's rapping was the element that produced that little itch that made you want to like Linkin Park. This album sort of fails to deliver on that promise, but in a tolerable way.

    I also got the Smashing Pumpkins acoustic EP, which has a terrible title, and I haven't listened to enough to comment.

    I've been listening to a bit of Susumu Hirasawa lately (the guy who did the soundtrack to Paprika and the opening theme to Paranoia Agent). I'm currently trying to find some more.

    Soccer Team - Something I just stumbled upon. Fantastic, pensively passionate lo-fi indie from a couple of years ago. Thanks!

    Magnolia Electric Co. - Their ridiculous boxed set. You should've just put Nashville Moon out as an album, Molina you twonk.

    Charlotte Hatherley - More melodies. In fact more melodies than you can count, she just crams them in any old place on her best songs. Melodies, counter-melodies, harmonies... phew.

    ...and I'm about to start listening to Subtle's new re-versioning project thing Yell&Ice that I've been looking forward to for a LONG time.

    Aha. My new Finnish CDs just turned up from Reverb Worship via Piccadilly. The distinctly ghetto-packaged CD-Rs are CROOKEDNESS by Vapaa (starting off a bit jazzy, this one), and ABOUT AROUND by ancient zen master of weird Keijo.

    I went to see Vagabond Opera and the Luminescent Orchestrii on Friday night, so that's what I've been listening to all day.

    Both groups are a mix of eastern European styles with some cabaret/pre-war blues/rag time stuff thrown in.

    William Shatner: Has Been. Still don't know what to make of it, except that Ben Folds is quite a producer. . . .

    Uncle Tupelo: No Depression. Going back to my good old days of enjoying alt-country-punk.

    Warclub: The Art of Warclub Reloaded. Been listening to their stuff online. Dense,angry, and often melodic. Intriguing stuff. . . .

    Lamb: Between Darkness and Wonder. Not their finest album, but rich and layered music with a fine female's voice intertwining with the madness.

    Kronos Quartet: Early Music. I can't recommend this album enough. Beautiful, fragile music with baroque trimmings and technical precision.

    I read that Danger Mouse was producing the new Black Keys album with Ike Turner, so I am going through my entire music collection trying to identify what that is going to sound like. Stuck Between the Stones' "Rocks Off" and Sonic Youth's "Kool Thing" as the prototypes.

    Ved Buens Ende... - Written in Waters

    As of today, it seems to be the high points of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, with occasional Asylum Street Spankers....

    I love that album.
