    So what are you listening to right now?

    I'm listening to the Jonsi album and finding it horribly soporific.
  2.  (7853.2)
    Right now? Roxy And Elsewhere. Frank Zappa. "Echidna's Arf (Of You)" and "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing?" are breathtaking, My wife says it sounds like music from Sylvester and Tweety Pie. What a recommendation for anyone.
  3.  (7853.3)
    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon.

    I needed a massive lift today, and that's exactly what I got.

    Nuthin' but J-pop. Old indie from Hige:

    New, featherweight pop fluff from Kuraki Mai (I apologise, it's awful, but that's an amazingly hook-packed chorus and I cannot get it out of my head, and want to inflict it on you):

    And new stuff from Tokyo Jihen (this went out on TV last week with the tsunami warning flashing away in the corner there):

    Oh, and this from the new best of Kimura Kaela:

    Sorry for the video dump, but seriously. Those four associated albums and singles on repeat for ages now. I'm just trying to get past it.

    what i´m listening to today....

    Infinite Body - Carve Out The Face Of My God
    Ellen Allien - Pump
    Four Letter Word - Zero Visibility (Experiments With Truth)
    Kaki King - Until We Felt Red
    Gonjasufi - A Sufi and a Killer
    Cold Cave and Prurient - Stars Explode
    Sign & Explode - These Seem Like Tarantulas

    But my album this week that i TOTALLY recommend is World is Yours by Mass of the Fermenting Dregs. They are Japanese and do this incredibly catchy heavy Showgaze Power-Pop. Must have played it several times today...

    Bob! Mass! I saw them twice last year and I'm hoping to catch them again at the end of the month, they're incredibly good live. One of my favourite bands for a while now!

    Warren: Godspeed You! Black Emperor's ''Lift Your Skinny Fists..'', because I need something to kick my brain back in so I can finalize one of the Coilhouse #5 articles.

    Apart from that, I was nicely surprised by Salem's ''Water EP'' ..

    All the songs on this ep sound like disjointled submerged versions of Paper Planes, inwhich M.I.A.'s vocals are lost to the heavy hum of bass smoke and reduced to that of a school girl doing karaoke versions of 4AD classics.

    Richard Skelton's ''Marking Time - Preservation''

    Skelton embraces entropy at a stroke and only continues to settle in. Simple structures, gilded with grating guitars, lined with piano and strings, led brusquely yet sensitively by Skelton’s downtrodden delivery, his mercurial way with arrangements and steadfast concentration, occasionally elevate these ruminative compositions beyond themselves.

    Clint Mansell's ''Moon OST'' (by the way, a smart, true, amazingly sci-fi film, directed by the son of David Bowie)

    And then the first bars of “Memories (Someone We’ll Never Know”) kick in, and suddenly you don’t just feel like Yuri Gagarin, you are the trailblazing, lonely bastard. As Sam pines for his wife and child while trying to keep it together and stay frosty, Mansell rolls out twinges of beautiful piano modulation, wrapping keys in stellar fog and lingering Cs. It’s everything a good theme should be: understated but sweeping, blistering in the way only heartache can be, and, above all, genuinely memorable. In five minutes flat it cements the mettle of the film, setting up Moon as the missing link in a classified flow chart that demonstrates how employment can crush a mild-mannered drone.

    ..and Shitmat's ''One Foot in the Rave''.

    There is a succinct lack of depth to this album, and it is hard to be taken seriously, given the extravagant amounts of “hands in the air” moments. Yet, I think that Shitmat never intended for "One Foot in the Rave" to be taken too seriously. "One Foot in The Rave" is a throwback to times since pased, and does not attempt to embrace the future.

    Plastic Beach is Albarn and his kaleidoscopic vision at his peerless best. Straddles the pensive vibe of Demon Days with the abundance of solid hooks and rhymes of the first album. Truly, if you carved the right now ideal album of my current mental state out of sonic ether, it would be Plastic Beach. Fucking great.
