    I'm guessing nerd prom nixxed the usual start of the thread on Monday so here's a start.


    So what are you listening to?
    Me, I've been trying to cram as much classical stuff from the Proms Festival into one ear and the noise.sludge.doom.caterwaul from Supersonic into the other. Listen again for the former via the BBC Proms site and for the latter via Rhubarb Radio.
    I can recommend Saint-Saens Symphony no 3 from one and Nissenenmondai live from the Saturday in the other. They're also on Piccadilly.

    Clint Mansell did that awesome track from the Wrestler soundtrack, too. I'll be checking out those other scores now.

    Me, I've been listening to a bunch of dream-pop-electronica, Isan and Boards of Canada and so on. Also reacquainting myself with Martyn Bennett, a musician you definitely should check out. He mixes techno and Scottish folk in just the most sublime way. Poor lad died of cancer a few years back, and I really feel he was cut off in his prime. His three albums I've heard really show a progression, and I feel his next would have been on another level. He was getting too sick to work by the time Grit came out, though, and it's his last. Well worth your time.

    Right now, I'm listening to George Thorogood and the Destroyers.

    @hmobius it's very very good.
    the way the piano is played is almost Trent Reznor-esque in places

    Also, I've been rediscovering New Skin for the Old Ceremony by LEONARD COHEN. Certainly not his best, but it has some real gems.

    @joe.distort, they were wonderful. I was not as familiar with their discography as with Torche's, but I found myself liking their set just as much. The lead singer is also an adorably soft spoken old dude. I would strongly encourage seeing them. It was, in fact, fucking intense. Lots of delicious doomy sounds and weird rhythms.

    Neko Case? Oh, yeah. Saw her a few years ago with the New Pornographers, and it was almost transcendent.

    Lately:

    Grinderman - Grinderman
    Pig Destroyer - Prowler in the Yard
    Goatwhore - Carving Out the Eyes of God
    Baroness - Red Album
    Motorhead - Ace of Spades
    Black Cobra - Feather and Stone

    Needed energy that only grimy summer metal could provide.

    Also: Hooray for Torche. I haven't gotten to see them live yet, though.

    Hallelujah! The new CLUTCH album "Strange Cousins From the West" is out, and it's awesome.


    Also: digging the shit out of DEAD WEATHER. I should really go see them live soon.


    IN THE CAR: Mastodon - CRACK THE SKYE's been playing non stop. I must feel miserable if I'm gonna start the day properly.
