    Ghostwitch Family Band - They've got about ten songs on their Myspace page and they're fucking good. Sounds like the Misfits if they came from the south.

    Dear Landlord - Dream Homes - Took me a while to get my hands on this one. I love overly sincere punk like this.

    Goatwhore - Carving Out The Eyes of God - Vicious.

    Edited to add: Also listening to Scott H Biram, as suggested by lucien in the metal thread. Biram plays some excellent country and blues, with little touches of heavy music influence here and there. Good stuff.

    Some of the stuff i´ve been listening to today...

    Bloodgroup - Dry Land : Their Second album. Very nice Electro pop. Here is the main track

    Morðingjarnir - Flóttin Mikil : Icelandic Punk music, altough they´ve become more Green Day and less Black Flag with this album
    Kimono- Easy Music for difficult People: Progressive Indie rock. Think the Young Knives after one too many Mid 70´s Rush albums

    Non Icelandic
    Beak - Beak>: Got this album last week and it´s bloody brilliant. Geoff Barlow (Portishead) & 2 of his mates do Krautrock and post punk.
    Pissed Jeans- King Of Jeans : Scuzzy Noise rock
    Billy Bao- May 08 : More noise
    Primus - Suck on this: Hand´t heard this album in 15 years and managed to download a copy. Still sounds great.

    Your Infamous Harp.
    Fat Freddy's Drop.

    Having only got one functional ear at the moment, due to ear surgery last week, and being away from home, I've been forced to listen to music through my Macbook's built in speakers, which isn't ideal, but hey. This is what I've been half-listening to:

    Bauhaus - In a Flat Field / recent re-release box set. I had a copy on tape but this new edition is great. I have also found out that the record was recorded in a studio on the same road as my great uncle lives. When I was four I would go there at weekends not knowing who was no more than 100 metres away...

    Nurse with Wound - Paranoid in Hi-Fi / NWW flashback cd for 99p.

    Nurse with Wound - Space Music - finally arrived :)

    glad you're diggin on the biram.

    not listening to much new stuff these days, but...

    jarboe -- mahakali: reiterating from the metal thread, but it's her most "accessible" but undiluted post-swans album, despite phil anselmo, and deserves a listen.
    coil -- the new backwards: reworked tracks from 1993 that still sound relevant.
    slim twig -- contempt: local guy who's billed as some sort of electro punk nick cave. i think he sounds like suicide on modern gear plus a guitar doing murder ballads; at least worth a listen.
    charles mingus presents charles mingus: because it's fucking insane.
    koch, studer, and schutz -- heavy cairo traffic: sounds about like you'd expect.
    peter murphy's carver combo -- murder of crows: yeah he's just doing tom waits, but the band is good and i can listen to twisted circus/cabaret music all night long.
