    So what are you listening to right now?

    New week's releases are up at - just choose a genre from left and click "magic mix" to stream excerpts from the new releases.

    Right now, for me it's Julianna Barwick, whose FLORINE is obsessing me a cigarette, Bardo Pond and Sunn 0))).

    Working through some old Nine Inch Nails records, that I haven't listened to since high school. Kinda glad they never went in any of the purges, 'cause the Terminator trailer had me wanting to give them another spin.

    EDIT TO ADD: Also listening to the new Metric album, which is fucking fantastic.

    This morning's freshly purchased from Emusic playlist:

    Kid 606 : Shout at the Döner
    Somatic Responses : Reformation

    Both are jumping on the Dubstep bandwagon, I think, but so far, I like it. Kid 606, brings the humor as usual, even to the Birthday Party sampling "Dancehall of the Dead", and Somatic adds some serious glitch to the dubstep sound.

    A Hawk And A Hacksaw : Délivrance

    Much more upbeat than their last few records.

    Listening to an album by the Skull Defekts. Slightly regretting it so far.

    Asian Dub Foundation - Community Music (sptf)
    Transglobal Underground - Rejoice, Rejoice (Usually not my cup of tea, but hey, space pharaohs? I'm in.) (sptf)
    Metric - Fantasies (sptf)

    I'm torn on the Metric so far. The songs are good, but the super-compressed sound is a bit grating. Will have to try again later.

    (Links go to Spotify, once again.)

    At the moment its The Bastard Faeries, tracks such as 'were all going to hell' make me giggle and have happy moments. The whole albums good to listen to

    Been browsing 433rpm, a blog specializing in cassettes. Quite a few dip into antiquity. Mostly electronic, experimental & noise, if that's your thing... Some definite gems if you dig.

    As for current listening, just grabbed 'Flood' by Boris. Starts off doing the Eno ambient bit, incommensurable cycles using guitars instead of vocals, vaguely Frippy, then goes off in its own direction with heavily overdubbed, deeply resonant percussion. Heady metal indeed. Four movements in all, and all of 'em astonish.

    'Cloud Chamber' by Boris w/ Michio Kurihara of Ghost is similarly worth exploring, though I'd only recommend it to those who don't mind being waterboarded with static, Merz-style. Starts off sweet & subtly psychedelic, very open, but by the end of track two you've been bukkake'd by Terminators.

    Outside of that... Discovered french noiseist Vivenza via design blog Jacket Mechanical. Interesting, albeit occasionally repetitious, loop work; very industrial in the sense that you feel trapped in a fully-automated factory. 'Machines' and 'Music for Metaal' are all I've heard so far-- both available from 433rpm.

    what was on my MP3 player today. It seems that i´ve gone a bit doom/post rock this weekend (even with all the sunshine)...

    Collapse Under The Empire - Systembreakdown : usual post rock, but with added electronica for extra depth.
    Jardin De La Croix - Pomeroy: This is Progrocktastic! sounds so much like Jethro Tull and Rush it hurts
    Manatees - Icarus, The Sunclimber: Possibly one of the best DOOMKRUSHER albums i´ve heard for a while. Still to beat Sun 0))) though...
    Religious Girls - Religious Girls EP: the drumming on this one is rather tribal and hypnotic
    Phlow Magazine presents Their Finest Hour Vol. 2: A compilation of Electronica, Techno and accoustic beats from the Phlow Magazine website which gives loads of music away for free!
    Bird from the Abyss - I: Very heavy psych doom mashup
    Marmaduke Duke - Duke Pandemonium : the Singer from Biffy Clyro in electronic/funk/pop shocker!

    and STILL listening to the Horrors Album. the fact that it hasn´t bored me after listening to it about what feels like a gazillion times has to mean it has some good points...

    Kindof upset that I've not heard of Dan Deacon until now.

    I mean, holy shit!

    Rotersand - "I Cry" is currently what I am using to torture my neighbors.

    I'm listening to the new Screaming Females record, POWER MOVE. Again. The song "Starving Dog" is the kind of thing that will raise the hair on the back of your neck. Pure, creepy terror.

    I just checked out their stuff, and I really like it. I'll try and make it to one of their Brooklyn shows.
