    Lots and lots of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, specifically From Her to Eternity, The Firstborn is Dead, and Tender Prey. Really, I've only recently discovered this stuff. I've had The Proposition OST for a while, but I never really "got" the Birthday Party or Bad Seeds stuff until I listened to a Grinderman song on Youtube, now I'm hooked.

    Also: Mastodon - Leviathan
    Violent Femmes - Hallowed Ground & Self-titled
    Sleater-Kenney - Self-titled
    Sugarcubes - Life's Too Good
    Diamanda Galas - Plague Mass

    Basically, everything up there, especially the Nick Cave stuff and except for the Mastodon and Diamanda Galas, I can listen to while writing, which I've been doing a lot of lately. I'm finding the music helps me concentrate, as long as I'm not doing any editing while I listen.

    • Art of Noise - The Seduction of Claude Debussy

    And I haven't got past D yet.

    I got myself some classical CDs to provide an unobtrusive soundtrack to my desk-bound days. Greatest hits packages from Vivaldi, Mozart and Beethoven to be precise. I'm totally ignorant in this field, so I went for the big hitters. Recommendations, esp more modern stuff, are very welcome.

    Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition. I prefer the orchestral arrangement of it, but the original solo piano suite is still excellent. Also Stravinsky's Firebird Suite and Rites of Spring, and Carnival of Animals by Camille Saint-Saens.

    If you're after solo piano Erik Satie is always a winner.

    Satie seconded! Pianoworks is amazing.

    Also Darius Milhaud's "La Creation du Monde" is amazing.

    Cocaine gonna kill my baby dead. The White Ghost Shivers tell it to you true, son.

    I'm missing Austin and all the fantastic live music something awful, so I'm comforting myself with the warm glow of YouTube. The WGS are probably my favorite local band, in terms of musical excellence and their frenetic energy-fueled shows.

    Has anybody checked out the Blue Record by Baroness?
    Definitely a kick ass album.
