    What are you listening to?

    Found anything new that's good?
    • CommentTimeJan 25th 2010
    Reso's Temjin EP and Ihsahn's After both drop today. Both are excellent for different reasons.
    David Byrne has made a new track available from his forthcoming collaboration with Fatboy Slim and many others. I'm less enamoured of it.

    Nothing new, but I'm currently all over Hendrix's Electric Ladyland.

    More dubstep here. Some new EP releases by Martyn and Pangaea. Checked the new Mordant Music Vindicatrix release but its a bit too far out/too attention grabbing for me at the moment (especially while I listen to it while working).

    Murcof is a recent discovery. I seem to have a diet of abstract glitchy pop with Fennesz and Alva Noto filling the lineup.

    I've been having a little retrospective recently. It seems a lot of bands that I enjoyed in the past (and still enjoy their old albums) are either straying from their original path and heading into the territory where their music loses the things I loved about them... or after pumping out 4 or 6 or 7 albums the recording fatigue gets in the way and they just publish new albums out of I don't know... keeping the momentum alive or something.

    OR, the scary thought... I'm just getting old.

    Anyway, this week (and the previous weektoo) I'm having a Marilyn Manson retrospective (going from Portrait to half of Golden Age, because that album is quite uneven, skipping the later stuff).


    Das Ich - Egodram
    ohGr - welt
    Prodigy - Music for the Jilted Generation / Fat of the Land / The Invaders Must Die
    Arcturus - La Masquerade Infernale
    Velvet Eden - Ningyou Shoukan
    Type O Negative - World Coming Down
    Einsturzende Neubauten - Sabrina
    Elastica - s/t
    Molotov - Apocalypshit
    Little Boots - Hands
    Paula - Warum Berlin
    Moloko - Things to make and Do
    Versailles - Noble
    DatA - Skywriter
    King Crimson - In The Court of the Crimson King

    there, my entire current playlist...
    Most of this is about 10 years old, with one really old album and a few fairly recent ones

    I'm trying to get winter out of my head, so I'm putting away the black metal and suicide rock for now. I've constructed a new playlist out of some 60's-70's rock, some punk, and assorted other songs that make me not want to die.

    Miscellany on the mp3 player:

    Streelight Manifesto - Everything Went Numb
    Bad Brains - Bad Brains
    Creepshow - Run For Your Life
    Fu Manchu - King of the Road
    Aesop Rock - None Shall Pass

    As for new stuff, this Sleek dubstep mix is pretty great if you like BIG GODDAMN NOISES.

    Edited to add: Pig Destroyer...hell yes, Bob.

    Reso - Live Mix.
    • CommentTimeJan 25th 2010
    Nas- Illmatic
    POS- Never Better
    Neko Case- Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
    Eels- Hombre Lobo
    Mike Doughty- Sad Man Happy Man

    Plus a whole host of cheesy classic rock, modern Jimi Hendrix covers, a few songs off of Spoon's new album, Fleet Foxes, Why?, and that god damn DJ Earworm mashup of the top 40 songs from 2009.

    Geogaddy by Boards of Canada. Music Has A Right To Children didn't really click with me, but this is amazing.

    What's Four Tet's new record like?
  6.  (7630.12)
    The Clash - London Calling
    The Libertines - self titled
    Minus the Bear - Planet of Ice

    Only just started listening to it today, but it does have "love cry" which is excellent. It´s fairly mellow, hints of house and dubstep with jazz drum samples but it´s going to take another couple of days to sink in...

    It's incredible.

    I hate you so much right now for already having the Pantha Du Prince album.

    I admit i couldn´t resist having a sneak listen before the release. I pre-ordered it on rough Trade, but I´m a weak man... It´s out there is you want to "get it"....

    Already have. Panda Du Prince is awesome.
    • CommentTimeJan 25th 2010
    omg new Pantha Du Prince omg omg. who wants to send me a copy? neither mexican record stores nor mexican wireless are being too accommodating to my music addiction right now.

    lately i've been all about Kangding Ray and Margo Guryan, in equal doses. and a huge craving to listen to early-90s hip hop (Beastie Boys - Ill Communication and Tribe Called Quest - People's Instinctive Travels).

    Been listening to ungodly amounts of Primus & Mr. Bungle this week, and dipping my toe into other stuff by Mike Patton or Les Claypool - Fantômas, Tomahawk, Oysterhead, LC's Frog Brigade, etc etc.

    Also, some Easy Star All-Stars, for variety.
