    So what are you listening to right now?

    New week's releases should be up at at some point today, if they're not already - just choose a genre from left and click "magic mix" to stream excerpts from the new releases.

    I'm listening to EARS WILL POP AND EYES WILL BLINK, the new album by Bodies Of Water. Very reminiscent of Polyphonic Spree in places. Apparently they're all terribly Christian, but I can't hear the words well enough to tell. "These Are The Eyes" is the standout so far -- slow to start, but by halfway through it's almost like a gospel call-and-response version of "Ça Plane Pour Moi..."

    (I'm very tired)

    Nux Vomica. new to me, and I'm enjoying them.

    I'm currently finding Mindflayer, which defines it's self as "A Providence based post-apocalyptic tribal hardcore band." to be excessively charming. A lot of D&D references and all of that good stuff.

    also been playing a lot of Lightning Bolt, which goes something like this.
    Very epic, fun Noise Rock.

    Both bands share Brian Chippendale

    Load Records, blah blah blah, good times
  1.  (676.4)
    Saw Eric McFadden perform yesterday, now currently rummaging through YouTube for videos, and gonna make a mad dash for the used cd shop later today. Nifty stuff in a Tom Waits-y kinda way....
  2.  (676.5)
    listening to Baroness, Kylesa and Taint ahead of their gig next week. going to be a fucking belter!
  3.  (676.6)
    been in the car a lot this weekend, no vinyl

    MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD-merciless (pummeling NY metalcore)
    FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND-casually dressed and deep in conversation (poppy welsh wakeup tunes)
    LAWRENCE ARMS-apathy and exhaustion ( the sound of a three day bender, filtered through gainseville and chcago styled gritty poppunk)
    SPAZZ- la revancha AND crushkilldestroy (powerviolence whirlwinds of insanity)
    LINK 80- 17 reasons ( eastbay hardcore with some horns thrown in- not really ska though)

    and my favorite thing of 2008...listening to the pouring rain at 4 am with my girlfriend ( i am a sappy romantic idiot, and i couldnt be happier about it)

    Some older stuff that's new for me:

    ASA BREED - Matthew Dear
    HEALTH - Health
    That Es album Warren recommended a few weeks back
    IN THE FUTURE - Black Mountain

    All of which are doing me good, btw.

    I'll also probably download the Vampire Weekend album that comes out tomorrow, the one that's the new awesome thing to the people who say what things are awesome.
  5.  (676.9)
    oooh, you guys got some good shit...HEALTH is great, i am so psyched to see them again with NETZEAH in april. check those guys out, they are really good as well.
  6.  (676.10)

    Between this HEALTH record, and the No Age one, I think the LA music centering around The Smell club (?) is something for me to pay attention to.
  7.  (676.11)
    oh hell yes- the smell is a rad little place, but i havent been to LA for a show in a few years.

    two of my favorites from that scene are MIKA MIKO and the SILVER DAGGERS. great stuff.

    At the moment, the Beatles' Love album. Great ear candy.
    • CommentTimeJan 28th 2008
    the upcoming Meshuggah album has leaked: obZen. it's heavy as all hell and insanely complex. i really think it might be their best ever.

    pure bliss for mathematically-inclined metalheads.
    • CommentTimeJan 28th 2008 edited
    Radiohead, The Strokes, They Might Be Giants, and Ween are on my mind. That can usually last me awhile.
