    Khanate - Clean Hands go Foul
    I haven't worked out why, but I really like the drumming on this.

    This Mixtape from here which moves from ambient though to wobbling dubstep.

    and this 4-bit Kode9 remix

    I also discovered Blackbox Recorder thanks to a youtube comment pointing out it was their song It's Only the End of the World playing in an episode of Monkey Dust.

    an interview with the actual john sinclair that's segued into the john lennon song.

    I'm sorry... I should say I'm listening to "hwy 62 the blues" on my local public radio station - MPB - Mississippi Public Broadcasting, 88.9 FM Bude, MS.

    Hour long podcast by Moon Wiring Club:

    Talking Heads... lots of Talking Heads....

    (Pointless aside: While their name referred to people As Seen On TV, I first thought of Welsh mythology and the heads of kings that kept talking long after being separated from their bodies...)

    Charlotte Hatherley - The Deep Blue

    Surprisingly good!

    Orka - Faeroes band that I read about in the Grauniad; lots of banging of scrap metal found round and about their bleak windswept farm with only a meal of raw whale blubber to look forward to ... pretty wonderful

    Cheap Trick, Rocket from the Crypt and the new Dinosaur Jr.

    Nick Drake - Pink Moon
    Loretta Lynn - Van Lear Rose
    Handgjort - Handgjort

    and, strangely
    Thrice - Illusion of Safety when I was shoveling a bunch of fucking rocks. Whose brilliant idea was that? Oh yeah. Mine.

    Also looked up King Midas Sound, digging it, will be tracking it down when the album drops.

    Mastodon - Crack the Skye is unbelievable. There's something special about this band that's got my attention more than other metal acts.

    In my shopping bag this week:
    eels "Hombre Lobo" - abandoned after 3 tracks turned out to be unlistenable on our in-car CD thing, except for the fuzz distorted opening track. Needs longer.

    DJ Yoda's How to cut and paste country and western. Amusing in the short term, odd tracks may make it into future mixtapes, but unsatisfying in the same ways that Stars On 45 "medleys" were.

    Finders Keeper compilation "B-Music" and excellent mix of the sort of tracks that QUentin Tarantino might've used if he'd remade "Until the End of the World".

    Little Steven's Underground Garage Halloween A-Go-Go. Ditto for a remake of Rob Zombie's Halloween remake. starts with the Electric Prunes "I had too much to dream last night" and ends with "Season of the Witch" by Donovan. This compilation is not just for Halloween!

    "Dark Night of the Soul" - technically not a new purchase, as the blank CDR and poster has not arrived yet, but of course the (artist sanctioned) downloads of what is certainly my favourite Dangermouse album and if Mark Linkous had been singing all of the songs it'd probably be my favourite Sparklehorse album, because these are good songs. As it is, my favourite album of the year so far.

    Excellent stuff I have also been listening to: Jon Hopkins "Insides", King Creosote "They flock like Vulcans to see old Jupiter Eyes on his home craters" (as seen live this week, once again amused by tale of failed Chemical Bros collaboration "Ear Against the Wireless") & Julian Cope's collection of solo demos that is known as "Christ vs Warhol" and contains some of my favourites of his songs.

    In general:

    Still listening to CKY's new album "Carver City"... not amazing, but very good.
    Downloaded most of the forthcoming album "Strange Cousins From The West" by Clutch... ever since "Blast Tyrant" these guys have been putting out one solid album after another.
    "Octahedron" by The Mars Volta is very chill... for them. I like it.

    Also, random Sigur Ros and Explosions In The Sky.
