    at the moment, I am discovering a band called Fluke. I'd only ever heard one song of theirs, on some soundtrack. good writing music.

    @synthsapien, i would rather have that playing at work than fucking nelly furtado, timberland, and amy winehouse, apparantly on repeat, all day long.

    also that stupid song that claims elvis isn't dead and the other shit british indieshite band that sings 'she er-luverly' a thousand times a minute.



    where's my pig destoryer...

    Just came back from a roadtrip, listening to lots of compilations, but as far as albums go:

    William Shatner: Has Been: I can't stop listening. Sometimes awful, momentarily brilliant. "You'll Have Time" is the track I listen to most often. Help me!

    Rammstein: Reise Reise. I am getting more and more into this band. I use Amerika in my anthropology class.

    Chumbawamba: Assorted stuff. I found some of their stuff on their website, some odds & ends on music services. Some of it makes me scratch my head, but most of it is pretty cool, and much less bouncy than their Tubthumper period.

    Various: Mortal Combat: Annihilation. Don't ask. It was good for that point in the drive when the road was flat and forever ahead of me. "Flawless victory!"

    Flogging Molly: Bopping around between albums. "With a Wonder and a Wild Desire" keeps getting played.

    Been listening to Kate Nash the last few nights, don't really know what the hell appeals to me in it.

    Minor Threat for the moments I need to walk outside in the currently minus forty degree weather.

    Guided by Voices after having a conversation with a friend of mind about what makes Robert Pollard so fucking brilliant. Its also so damn inspiring. One of the reasons I want to be in a band, and play an instrument. Don`t know what else to say at this hour.

    Been listening to The Sisters of Mercy's Vision Thing and Floodland albums, especially the tracks Ribbons, Temple of Love, Lucretia My Reflection, Emma, and Colours...

    Also getting played a lot in my current playlist; Silent Lucidity by Queensr├┐che, Hex by Specimen, Photograph and Love Bites by Def Leppard (also Love Bites by Judas Priest because it's great listening to the two different songs back to back), Even Angels Fall and Jabberwocky by The Cruxshadows, several songs by The Cure, Tainted Love by everybody who's covered it that I've found, Come Undone and Silva Halo by Duran Duran, Lovesong and When You're Evil by Voltaire.

    And Marilyn Manson's latest album, not because I like it particularly, but because it reminds me of someone I like being reminded of.

    @Vespers - Tainted Love! This reveals me for the sad, obsessive nerd I truly am, but I have 20 different versions of that song. Yes.

    Next up in the playlist is O' Captain! My Captain! - Stopping A Train With My Bare Hands.

    Listening to a mix CD a friend made for me. There's some stuff I've heard before (Custard, The Eels, The Tea Party, Marcy Playground) there's also some new bands Ive not heard until now. There's the Kooks who remind me a little of that whole Kaiser Chiefs/Maximo Park vibe..Also Ursula 1000 and Metric which I really like.

    @Midweek - AiH give me so much joy. Heart It Races made my summer last year.
    @offtandiscord - that fucking She's Lovely song is the most cuntshittingly awful thing I've heard in a long time. It is ear cancer. There should be CIA rendition flights for people who write, record and purchase such wretched fuckwittery.

    Today!

    I've already played most of the albums I was given for christmas half to death, but Grey Will Fade and The Deep Blue by Charlotte Hatherley still make me smile whenever they come around on the playlist.

    But today? ( ) by Sigur Ros. Took the phone off the hook, hid from everyone else in the office and played the whole goddamn thing straight through. It's just a brilliantly constructed musical journey from start to finish, from the first gentle steps of "Untitled 1" to the feedback and static that follow the epic noise of "Untitled 8".

    And I've spent the past half an hour staring at the iPod, trying to figure out how to follow it.

    @erudite_ogre - That MK:A soundtrack was one of my favorite records during my preteen years (I'm that young...). That second track -- FIIIIIIREEEEE!!!!! -- brings back many ugly memories.

    Right now it's the Hives' three-record oeuvre, as I'm preparing for their gig in montreal in about 40 days. I'm also discovering We Are The Fury, who have great energy and make me happy overall, and Cobra Starship, whose cheesy dance rock and catchy choruses also make me happy.

    I need this constant happy music so I don't fall into student depression.

    Someone suggested I have a listen to an artist by the name of Martin Craft (here's a link to his MySpace page). I don't know if I'd be interested in an entire album, the song Demons got my attention.

    The rest of the day has consisted of

    Oscillons from the Anti-Sun (disc one) by Stereolab
    Craft of the Lost Art by Shape of Broad Minds
    Raquel EP by Neon Neon
    Yank Crime by Drive Like Jehu

    Listened to as many early Darkthrone demos as I could stand. Black metal has certainly come a long way.

    Up next is:

    Aube & Zbigniew Karkowski - Mutation
    Whitehouse - Racket
    Wolf Eyes & Anthony Braxton - Black Vomit
    Masonna - Shinsen Na Clitoris
    Japanese Torture Comedy Hour - Voltage Monster

    I'm in a noisy mood today. My neighbours will be so pleased.

    @ Trotsky

    I have heard good things about the new Whitehouse. Looking forward to it. I also have a couple of their other albums (Erector and Bird Seed) to listen to at some point. The only other one I've heard by them so far is Great White Death, which was much scarier than I was expecting. In a good way.

    @ Nil,
    I think you'll like Racket. It's got a lot of granular synthesis, which I'm very keen on.

    Great White Death is great, agreed.

    And I really love how they made the move from analog stuff to laptops and Airsynths.
    I like all of it, really.

    This morning was mostly filled with Einst├╝rzende Neubauten: Alles Wieder Offen, Haus der Luege, and Ende Neu. I still haven't decided if I like Alles.

    Right now, it's DJ Spooky's Songs of a Dead Dreamer
