    What are you listening to?

    Found anything new that's good?

    I'm liking the new Titus Andronicus album, THE MONITOR, which I found by foul means but will buy when it's released on CD.

    Also, the most recent High Wolf, SUPERMODERN TEMPLE, is very peaceful.

    yesterday i re-discovered one of my favorite records of a few years back, Strangers Die Every Day by THE RED SCARE. i think you might actually be into this record, if not, then you would at least be more into it than the average stuff i jam.

    Everyone is listening to it, but 'Ambling Alp' by Yeasayer IS really, really good.

    Got a bunch of music during winterval, and now ploughing thru it. Zomby's self-titled EP is the thing that has really jumped out at me.

    The new album by Los Campesinos! can be streamed on their Myspace. I'm off for a listen...

    New Xiu Xiu record, ''Dear God I Hate Myself'', is..special. They remind me of being sixteen and battling clinical depression in a way that's sincere and doesn't make me want to vomit. Wisp's ''I Miss You'' is the best IDM record I've heard in a while, and Pantha Du Prince's ''Black Noise'' is sonically brilliant minimal techno.

    Is and Always Was by Daniel Johnston; I can't seem to get this album off my frequent rotation list. It's shockingly good. Like, one of the best albums of 2009 good.

    No Bird Sing by No Bird Sing; Just picked this up. They're a Twin Cities hip-hop group who use only haunting guitar, drums, and barely any keys. No, it isn't happy music.

    The Music Scene by Blockhead; This is an amazing album to listen to while doing something, if anyone knows what I mean. Hardly any vocals, just crescendo-heavy Electronic music with a knack for alienation.

    There best stuff is actually post Fire. It seems like most people gave up on them long before their second album. Kill! is their 6th.

    Fever Ray
    Best album of 2009 in my never-humble opinion.

    Soisong - xAj3z
    Only album i heard last year that came close to Fever Ray's blinding brilliance. Still listening to it on a daily basis.

    Also the Brainwashed Radio Podcast.

    Norwegian band Motorpsycho released their fourteenth album today, "Heavy Metal Fruit". And it's fucking awesome.

    I've been listening to a lot of music from Norway lately. I was always under the impression that Norway doesn't have good music, but then I suddenly realized how much of the music I listen to that is actually from here. Motorpsycho, Kings of Convenience, Cloroform, Röyksopp, The Cumshots, Gåte, Seigmen, Thulsa Doom, Zeromancer, Kaizers Orchestra, Major Parkinson and Krakow, not to mention black metal like Taake, Enslaved and immortal. Damn, homeland, I like you a little.

    I'm going back to my Happy Place by plugging terms like "Skinny Puppy" into my Pandora app. How can music so stompy be so soothing?
