    @infomancer: I think Diamond Eyes is the best album they've put out in the last ten years.

    @internaut: I'm inclined to agree. I've listened to it pretty much on repeat for the last 24 hours.

    My fuck buddy got a better offer

    So I'm listening to von Sudenfed to cheer myself up

    New She & Him. It's good, really good. It steered me backwards to M. Ward's Hold Time as well.

    Other than that an amazingly catchy Electronica band out of Chicago called The Prairie Cartel.

    Along with a few little splashes of Son House.

    just listened to Allen Ginsberg performing William Blake's Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience... it's pretty wild.

    "M.A.N recently declared itself the very first metal band ever to have incorporated what it calls the "Full Scale Quarter Tone System" into its music — and metal music genre as a whole. According to the group, "'Full Scale Quarter Tone Systems' [our own term] means that there are 24 quarter semi tones, instead of 12 'ordinary' semi tones, within reach of an octave [1200 cent]."

    As a side note, that's only the second person I've ever seen with a Skullet. Devin Townsend being the first.

    Nino Rota - Fellini's Casanova OST
  5.  (7923.54)
    i got the WELCOME TO THE GOLDEN STATE vol 2 comp with some new CA punk...bummed because i mainly bought it to hear DRY ROT who are supposed to be interesting ( a lot of manufactured drama though since they are 'proud christians', which i cant even tell if its real or not) but this song is clearly a joke. its like noisy fuzzy casio pop with falsetto vocals. clearly not one of their 'real' songs. ugh. thankfully it has two songs from another semi hyped band, MIGRAINE, who are pretty fucking good.

    besides that i still cant stop listening to AEROSOLS and WALLS

    Got to hear the new Nachtmystium record Addicts: Black Meddle II which is joyously fucked up American Black Metal which is bound to piss off most black metal fans.
    Also went out last night and stumbled across the P.O.S. and Total Fucking Blood noise jam mashup collab: Marijuana Death Squad. Dig it.
    In the truck:
    Spoon - Transference ((Got Nuffin' is basically my new favorite Spoon track))
    Guy Clark - Dublin Blues
    Forest Swords - Dagger Paths
    Black Flag - Damaged
    Jack Klatt and the Cat Swingers - Going to Hell

    Going out to see the Cactus Blossoms tonight whose lead singer made me drink a bottle of bourbon with him at 3am this morning. Hurt now.

    @ Eelock. I was just listening to Ginsberg's Wichita Vortex Sutra. I'll check out his Blake.

    Haven't heard anything new for a while, so I've been revisiting old favourites:

    Rain Dogs and Closing Time by Tom Waits
    In The Aeroplane Over The Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel
    Floating With My Poo by Passenger of Shit

    P.O.S. and Total Fucking Blood noise jam mashup collab: Marijuana Death Squad.

    Isn't this called Building Better Bombs? or is he in another one called Marijuana Death Squad?

    @ Nigredo, Awesome, I believe I shall purchase the new Autechre today.

    @ Joe.Distort, For some reason, as a teenager, the Void side of the Faith/Void split didn't really click with me. Over the last few years though, I've born witness to its brilliance.

    Today's soundtrack:

    The Advisory Circle : Mind How You Go
    John Baker's Radiophonic collection Volume 1 (I choose to blame our illustrious leader and tastemaker)
    She & Him : Volume Two (Haven't given it a real listen yet)
    Liliput : Live Recordings (Their studio stuff is phenomenal, the live tracks, less so)
    The Weakerthans : Live At The Burton Cummings Theater (Sad bastard music for those who read too much for their own good, which doesn't describe me at all, no way...)
    Gonjasufi : A Sufi and a Killer (Just got it off itunes)
