    I love Tim's vocal delivery in that song. You can tell he's having fun, even though no one can understand what the hell he's saying. I mean, I know the words and all, but I think it's that second verse that I swear ends: " I watched a thousa puhfuh guh fruh buhhhhh..."

    Hah! Yeah, the "thousand people go home from work" was the one I was thinking of.

    I think it's oddly satisfying that we just used the world's greatest communications tool to type Tim Armstrong gibberish at each other.

    For some reason, I've been pouring through all of Pete Shelley's solo work, and finding it...well, really good. I know, it seems like that's a sell out, but hearing him force Martin Rushent to make all those synths squawk out his tunes just worked for some reason.

    reached out and snagged:
    A Storm Of Light - Forgive Us Our Trespasses (not bad at all, if you've liked their other stuff, you'll like this as well, unless you hate guest appearances. Jarboe's on here for a track etc..)

    Nadja - Under A Jaguar Sun 2xcd set (really nice, one is like a bit more stripped down Nadja, the second is all ambient/noise to be played in conjuction w/ the other)

    Geoff Useless of NH's The Guts, in preparation for his upcoming appearance with a buddy of mine playing bass.

    Free three-song EP on bandcamp! Really poppy stuff, influenced by Beach Boys and Elvis Costello.

    This week is all about Jonathan Fire*Eater and Sage Francis for me. Also, been listening to two submissions to the netlabel: one's a French hip-hop band called Satyricon, the other's a solo project by a friend called Godmanwho. Both super-amazing-awesome and out soon!

    I usually pick up my Random Bits of Music from rcrdlbl.com which produces almost too many links a week, mostly indie and electronic stuff of varying degrees of raveyness.

    Fleet Foxes - Mykonos & Röyskopp - The Girl and the Robot (streaming at both links). Jangly 70s-esque folk-pop vs dance electronica. All of Feist's The Reminder, though I'm kind of late to the party considering she's a local girl. All of it very sweet and catchy, prone to generating earworms.

    Bruce Springsteen. Boards of Canada. I don't know why Scottish guys are making music about Canada, but I like it.

    @informancer - what do you think of Let The Dominoes Fall? I tried to write a review of it, but my comments for nearly every song were 'what is up with his voice?'

    So far today I'm listening to The JB Conspiracy, I can happily listen to this album on repeat, so this might be it for the rest of the day.

    That last M83 record, Sundays+Youth has earwigged me lately. I've always enjoyed his arena rock pushiness.

    Also Last night I played with J. Tillman and despite my reservations of him being a neutered FF ripoff (which would be saying something.) he had a lot of experimental Children-style psych-freakouts. Enjoyed that quite a bit.

    Dorkmuffin -

    Hell yes to Blonde Redhead. 'Silently' is one of the best avant-pop songs I've heard in years.

    I love Rancid, from the earliest songs to Let The Dominoes Fall. Tim's voice and enunciation is just part of the charm. Although, for the new album, you could be referring to several different people, since Tim trades off vocals more with the guitarist Lars (the slightly rough voice) and Matt the bassist (the really rough voice). But as for the album itself, I thought it was great. They managed to throw in a lot of surprising musical moments while maintaining a very Rancid-like sound.
