    @Kernowdrunk

    Aha! As I owned the original releases of Galaxie 500 I haven't explored those discs and discovered "Ceremony" yet. Still playing the supplemental stuff.

    Then I got sidetracked by the discovery that Damon & Naomi (G500 bassist and drummer, went solo after Wareham broke up the band) have got a nice deal on the digital versions of 4 of their albums from their website - 20 dollars for apple lossless with mp3 320k versions thrown in. 4 albums, including With Ghost, as part of a deal where you get the digital version of the Sub Pop Years compilation.

    Damon & Naomi are.... interesting. Nice, but not sure yet whether it'll evolve past background listening for me.

    @agitpunkt-

    Pleasantly surprised to find myself into 'em. I've never been big on Autechre-- prob'ly because I started off on Richard D. James & found the overall sound of Autechre (if not style) too similar. That teen opinion's been washed away with 'Oversteps', though. It's a nice mid-ground between ambient & electro, largely percussive yet persuasively structured. Kinda haunted, in places; more synth than Mt. Vernon Arts Lab, but sharing the same psychic turf, I feel. The illusory but accomplished acoustics make me think of Microstoria's 'Invisible Architecture 3'...

    This week i have been mostly listening to:

    Spacemen 3 - Singles, and Playing with Fire
    Four Tet (like everyone else)

    Also feeling the Galaxie 500 love - seems like pre-Nirvana indie (y'know the stuff that never sold much) is having a revival

    theres a huge interest right now in the fuzzed out, long winded, arty and noisy bands of the late 80s and early 90s. in my sphere of music, this is leading to a very annoying trend of ultra fast punk bands that then fill the b-side of their records with long and boring sound manipulation/distortion soaked jerk off sessions.

    @joe.distort:

    The transition from Black Eyes to Sex Worker, for example. Go from 'Cough' to 'Labor of Love'-- you might as well be smoking meth in a hot tub of cold tar. Messy & ineffectual recreation.

    Not your b-side scenario, but the same problem, methinks. The Sex Pistols / PiL pendulum. "We can't be young & angry anymore, so let's be artists!" It's more an abreaction than actual experimentation. (Not to diss 'Metal Box', I'm just floundering for decent analogies.)

    If only more of 'em would go off the reservation the way Fugazi did, integrating their varied & dissonant ideas into a whole album...

    Listened to Beth Orton's TRAILER PARK earlier today. Though, lately I've been playing the hell out of Lemuria's GET BETTER. It's a really fucking well-done indiepunk album.

    A bunch of black metal last night and this morning, a lot of it related to those in Ulver (i.e. Arcturus and Borknagar, as well as Ulver). Right now: Disiplin's Anti-Life. Up next, more black metal, followed by Big Black and Rapeman.

    Today I am listening to nothing but the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and its alumni.

    Very fond of Trailer Park.

    Great chillout album, and one of Weatherall's finest records

    @ferallon Nice to see somebody listening to the album. :-)

    (Er, that would be Red State Soundsystem.)

    I'm listening to hip-hop Twitterfolk recommended. An amazing album called "Never Better" by a dude called P.O.S. Also, N.A.S.A. Which, I just realized, means today is Hip-Hop Acronym Name Day.

    Been listening to the new Frightened Rabbit, which is made of Jesus. Also newish albums by Massive Attack, BT, Gorillaz, and a bunch of old Stax-Volt/Otis Redding/Sam Cooke/Nina Simone goodness.

    Nice to just listen to music after finishing the first RSS album. And I still keep hearing new ideas in everything I put on the stereo.

    helloMuller: I'm so happy the new Vex'd record finally found its way out. How do you like Slugabed?
