    I finally picked up Street Sweeper Social Club's debut. Easily my favourite album so far this year.

    Just got back from London, where I picked up Madness's new album, "The Liberty of Norton Folgate" - a ska opera loveletter to Whitechapel/Spitalfields. Mixing that in with new Moby and old Front 242, for some reason. It means something nice to my pleasure center, this week, I guess.

    Recently I've been playing Iron & Wine's Our Endless Numbered Days, which is wonderful for cross-city treks. Also I've been playing the new Future of the Left, the new Mars Volta, the new Alexisonfire and King Geedorah's Take Me To Your Leader. All of which are wonderful things.

    LAWRENCE ARMS-apathy and exhaustion (which, lets be honest, kind of falls apart halfway through the b side. the first 9 tracks are so good though...eagerly awaiting the new 5 song ep!)
    J CHURCH-society is a carnivorous flower 12"
    REALICIDE/CAPITAL HEMORRHAGE-split 7"(digital hardcore fuck everything)

    Lots of Minus 5 and Young Fresh Fellows. Scott McCaughey released records for both last week (and is still happily able to make them sound genuinely like two different bands), and the Minus 5 are coming to T-town on Friday.

    Also some old Dylan... recently acquired Blonde On Blonde, Blood On The Tracks and Freewheelin'.

    Currently listening to Korallreven - Loved Up through Gorilla vs Bear.
    Been listening to Miarches by Forest Swords, which is sort of a swampy, darker version of Burial and still free-basing on the Major Lazer LP.
    Also got the first "The Art of Noise" LP, and it's not as awesome as I was led to believe, the 80's studio technology really throws me off.

    Oh and there's a really great record by Phaseone you can download for free, it's called "Thanks But No Thanks". It's got fat beats and really warm synths, I kind of find it similar to Flying Lotus but it's a bit more accessible.

    I've been on a big soul kick.

    There's been a lot of Bill Withers and Otis Redding.

    Otis taught me the dangers of singing along.

    When he sings "You got good lovin', baby. I'm gonna get me some." it sounds awesome.

    When I sing it, I sound like a jackass.

    I'm all over the map tonight - first it was a bunch of Motown and such, then a playlist of driving songs, and now it's mostly 80s roots rock.

    Listening to Julian Cope's new "Black Sheep" band project, which I can best describe as like his acid campfire Skellington project crossed with the Rite instrumental albums. Good fun, but you have to be in the mood for that kind of repetition. The album's called KISS MY SWEET APOCALYPSE and its already vanished from his webshop, but its available elsewhere. Note that the vinyl and cd editions have slightly different tracklistings.

    Then I switched to Bonnie "Prince" Billy's ho-hum BEWARE album and while browsing his record label's site I noticed that Domino have teamed up with faber to produce a new journal about Music:

    www.loopsjournal.com

    Looks quite good fun - Simon Reynolds, Jon Savage, and an extract from the new Nick Cave novel. It has an ISBN so I presume it'll be available from most online bookshops.

    Listening to a lot of Nouvelle Vague, Pentaphobe, Man Man, and Ella Fitzgerald for the past few days. I never know what to look for in new music, so I rarely do. =/ Going to write down a few of the names you all have listed and check out some new music.
