    Listening to some vintage early nineties "IDM" , and am enjoying Coldcut , Black Dog and Ultramarine. Not sure about Sven Vath though.

    Of late I've been rediscovering Matt Johnson and The The. "Burning Blue Soul" "Soul Mining" and "Infected" are great. Also filled my Walkman with various Fela Kuti, Saul Williams and some soundtracks by Morricone and Schifrin of which "Dirty Harry" is fucking excellent which turns even going to the shops into a 70's action flick.

    Today it has been:

    Marvin Gaye's divorce album, "Here, My Dear",
    Against the Wall's 7" "Identify Me",
    Bathory's seminal "Blood Fire Death",
    and one of the better albums I heard released in 2009, Baroness' "Blue Album".

    Next up, I suspect it will be some Nick Drake, Swans or Ulver. Music is awesome. :)

    icelandbob's CD Swap contribution (which I need to listen to more; I like it, but it's kinda melded together in my memory. Couldn't name a song off it yet.)
    Skinny Puppy- The Greater Wrong of the Right
    Pigface- Preaching to the Perverted (Best of)
    Ideamen- ...Progress
    Tub Ring- The Great Filter

    So, a lot of the usual.

    Ok, so sez my seven dayz hav bin:

    MF DOOM - Because I finally got Born Like This I guess, and it's amazing, but I'm getting hung up on the obviously... objectionable track again and again. Man, I don't know if I can keep digging this...

    Jay Reatard - Because, yeah, and I immediately thought I never gave enough of a chance to the one album of his that I had.

    Mos Def - Because Madlib. No, that's not entirely fair...

    Stereolab - Because... well I used to hate Stereolab, and the fact that I'm listening to them so much now is like the final nail in the coffin of my seventeen year old self. Eh, that kid was an idiot.

    Ben Frost - Because wow. Seriously. Fuck.

    Ghostface Killah - Because my friend kept sending me youtubedoubled mash ups of sporting events and Wu tracks. And one thing led to another...

    Oh, and after that apparently DJ Quik and Kurupt, Clipse, Raekwon and Kool Keith... I've been listening to a lot of hip-hop then.

    @ Audley Strange Rediscovered ( thanks to a Warren reminder) The The and have had them on regular rotation since. Particularly fond of Soul Mining. The song "Giant" seems to invent and beat LCD Soundsystem ( among others) by twenty years.

    Norwegian jazzmetal band "Shining" just released their latest album, called, yes, "Blackjazz". Having thoroughly enjoyed their freaky-twisted-Tim-Burton-movie-soundtrack-like previous album ("Grindstone"), I immediately ordered it upon finding out.

    Here's a live sample.

    And here's one from their previous album.

    @ Kernowdrunk. "Giant" is fucking brilliant. I've had the album on vinyl since it was released, but not had a turntable since '92. Funnily though The The and the other stuff I've been listening to this week reminds me less of LCD Soundsystem and more like TV on the Radio have been decompressed into their influences, which I found quite curious.
    • CommentTimeJan 21st 2010
    Shining is one of my favourite bands. Looking forward to the new one.


    Anduin - Abandoned in Sleep

    @ AlexGBYMR - I used to listen to those two between album EPs from McLusky endlessly. Do you have the Ain't No Fool In Ferguson EP too?

    Very nearly, I forgot how much like the end of the world Blood of a Dove's main riff sounds, plus they were on form, being that it was a hometown show, so I've had ringing in my ears for a while.

    I do, it's one of my prize finds, got it in a charity shop for about 50p. The story goes with the ones they were selling on tour is that they went to Belgium or somewhere and in the office of their old label they found a box of about 200 singles that'd been there since 2003. So that was kinda impressive.

    Heavy new track from 13thNote Dubstep's Zerorez:

    Quite randomly, I rediscovered Billy Paul's "East" recently on the David Holmes Essential mix CD from '98 - the combination of bass and orchestral strings makes this an all time classic.

    Albums being listened to more often than anything else:

    J-Dilla (RIP) - Donuts
    The Roots - Illadelph Halflife
    Common - Finding Forever
    De La Soul - sprinklings of the Art Official Intelligence, and Grind Date records
    QBert's Breaktionary vol 1.

    Abeit a little bit shoutier...

    Oh and "Ayahuasca" by PELT

    Hmm. I might have a go in that case. The Hold Steady dominated my life when I was 18. They still do.
