    IcelandBob: Good call on that BLOODGROUP single, they sound great. Thanks for the tip!

    I've been trying to listen to Cave In's Until Your Heart Stops all week, but my headphones are broken and I can only hear one guitar. It makes for an entirely different listening experience; like pulling the dialogue out of a movie or something.

    Four Hundred Years - Suture and Other Songs
    High On Fire - Death is this Communion
    Jesus Lizard - Live @ Variety Playhouse 11/6/09
    Kate Bush - The Red Shoes

    I'm also making a playlist, taking all of the CD mixes people have given me over the years and pulling only the songs I really like but don't know the artists of. Then I intend to use some iTunes plug-in to figure out what they all are. So far The Hold Steady interested me and I was surprised to find out I like Regina Spektor.

    I cracked and bought Can's Future Days album. Absolutely beautiful.

    @oldhat, hell and damn yes. I hardly bought any music that was released this year because I spent so much time listening to Future Days.

    I've been back on a The Knife kick since catching up on The Singles Club and reading all the stuff about "We Share our Mother's Health."

    It's decidedly not anything new, but if people haven't checked them out before and like vaguely electronic music with fairly haunting female vocals, I heartily recommend them, starting out with Silent Shout.

    @Warren - What Shackleton, out of interest? Haven't listened to much recent stuff.

    @AlexGBYR - If I have turned one person on to Eaters, I have achieved my mission for this week. Glad you're digging it.

    @oldhat - Have you got Egebamyasi? That's my favourite Can album. Although Tago Mago is also fantastic.

    @Everyone else - just had to share this with you - a dubstep mashup of In The Thick Of It my mate Tickle made... the best swearing you will hear all week.

    The Microphones - The Glow Pt.2
    Volcano Choir - Unmap
    Imogen Heap - Speak for Yourself
    Me Succeeds - Riemerling (courtesy of someone from the last weekly music thread)
    Max Richtor - The Blue Notebooks
    Various Mansell soundtracks.

    I need to find some Regina Spektor stuff. The Imogen Heap radio says I like it, and I agree.

    @ mark barter

    OK, thats me on a dEUS binge. The Ideal Crash is an amazing album.

    texture: Shackleton-wise, I recommend both Three Ep's and Shackleton vs. Invasion: Wizards In Dub.

    I was sampling the Crank 2: High Voltage score last night. It's been a while since I was hooked on Mike Patton's work. It immediately felt like the lost Fantomas album. I'll see about fully d/l it soon.
    • CommentTimeDec 2nd 2009
    @chris g
    Throughout the whole movie, my friends were commenting on how Fantomas the score sounded. I just giggled and waited until they saw the credits.

    This isn't really my 'current listening', but this is the most appropriate thread, I figure:
    I was browsing through a record store the other day.... which, I immediately remembered, is something you should not do when you're broke. I found an original pressing promo-only copy of DEVO's 'New Traditionalists' packaged with a bonus 45 of 'Workin' In The Coal Mine', a poster, and a sticker. I am sad. If I find work by the end of the week, I'm going back and buying it as a gift to myself.

    What says on the matter:
    -Skinny Puppy (So maybe I've been on a Skinny Puppy kick. I'm very bad about getting obsessive about bands after having "discovered" them.)
    -Duct Tape Mustache
    -Doubting Thomas
    -They Might Be Giants
    -Screaming Mechanical Brain
    -"L" the Exquisitor
    -Secret Chiefs 3
    -Faith No More
    -Super 8-Bit Brothers
    -Elvis Costello & The Attractions
    • CommentTimeDec 3rd 2009
    I've never actually listened to any Duct Tape Mustache, except for one song on a comp. Do they come with the Brittanica Seal Of Approval?

    My for the week:
    -Mischief Brew
    -Doug Stanhope (comedian)
    -Some Girls
    -The World/Inferno Friendship Society
    -The Velvet Underground
    -Butthole Surfers
    -The Queers

    I'm trying out some hardcore/thrash/powerviolence stuff this week, as it's pretty popular here around the household, and I like what I've heard. Starting off with some Coke Bust, Deep Sleep, D.R.I., Graf Orlock, and Magrudergrind. I'm going to try to be productive today, so I'll crank through those at the drawing table.

    @ap Minos

    Jesus, thanks for the A.B. + St. V set. It's nice to see people make something just for me, you know?

    Listening to the new Lone LP Ecstasy & Friends — not bad if you like wonky downtempo like BOAC and Flying Lotus.
