    Jimi Hendrix reissues are on almost constant repeat at the moment. When they aren't, I've finally stumped up for the Them Crooked Vultures album and am liking Butterfly Explosion - Lost Trails too

    Speaking of Jònsi I'm listening to the record he did with Alex Somers, "Riceboy Sleeps"... It isn't bad, but feels like a sophisticated muzak in a way, like a background sound for you to listen while you wait around or work. This week I've also listened to a lot of Johnny Cash, Kelly Bailey's soundtrack for "Half-life 2" (there are some very interesting tracks here), George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" , Gorillaz' "Plastic Beach" (just listened to it once, it made no impression yet, I have to listen to it more) and some Dr. Octagon.

    @Pupato, I'm normally too impatient to listen to jazz, but last year I came accross "The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady" and it stroke me as the single best jazz record I've ever listened!

    Right now: 'Fostercare' by Burial. Achingly beautiful

    More generally, lots of grime and dubstep: Roll Deep's Street Anthems and the Run The Road comps, the Hyperdub comp and the 10 Tons Heavy comp from Planet Mu.

    It's all Simon Reynolds's fault. You should check out his notes on the noughties if you haven't already.

    I am going to be listening to The Filthy Kicks free album "Dirty Little Secret" quite a lot this week. It fits in with the thinking I'm doing at the moment.

    Yeah I know it's necrophiliacky but I went ahead and bought the 'new' Hendrix, Valleys of Neptune. Not so keen on the title track but some of the others are outstanding.

    An unusual mix for me recently.

    About 50% Antony and the Johnsons and 50% the 'chap-hop' stylings of Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer and MC Elemental.

    Tonight has been pretty much dominated by;

    Much Worse - Proper Execute.
    Hang the Bastard - Raw Sorcery.
    The Hope Conspiracy - True Nihilst.
    Modern Life Is War - Witness.
    VA - MMIX: Deathwish/Malfunction/Six Feet Under Sampler (featuring Trap Them, Reign Supreme, Rot In Hell and more).

    It's been a shouty-hardcore kinda night.

    The last 2 Murderbot mixes
    Week 41 Synth Pop
    Week 40 Juke
    (related to Juke if you're just getting in Week 34 Booty Bass and Week 24 Ghettotech

    Kuedo (aka Jamie from Vex'd) - Dream Sequence EP
    Jamie Vex'd (aka Kuedo) - In System Travel EP
    and the super excellent face fuzzing brain liquefying Kuedo - RA podcast mixset
    (Jamie used to be 1/2 of the super hard dubstep duo of Vex'd then he moved to Berlin and started getting more and more into space until he hit on the Kuedo formula)

    Ludacris - Battle of the Sexes
    Three 6 Mafia - Laws of Power Mixtape
    Luda's album is him in peak form full of charisma and wit, Three 6's mixtape preview of their next album shows them going for the club-rap gold ring leading to some interesting responses. The jury is still out.

    Kid Static - Hypnotized (Pay what you want DL here: at bandcamp)
    Dojo vs Twitch - Press Start to Begin ($10 DL here at bandcamp)
    2 recent albums of dubstep/wobble influnced chicago hip hop. Kid Static is an amazingly fun MC who in the past has rapped about sandwiches and mega man, dojo vs twitch is an instrumental duo that does live dubstep w/ a violin.)

    Converge - Axe to Fall (Hello Converge, nice to see you're back to smashing faces)
    Kylesa - Static Tensions (Heavy psych southern rock)
    Agoraphobic Nosebleed - Agorapacolypse (HAAAAAAARRRRDDDDDDDD)
