    Crystal Castles just released their new album Crystal Castles 2 a few days ago. I just downloaded it last night and I have to say it is amazing. I have been listening to the first one almost daily since it came out. Now I have a new obsession.

    If you like experimental 8-bit awesomeness this should be right up your alley.

    The track "I Am Made of Chalk" is like being in the womb of a giant wet computer. yeah...

    Just been hooked up with Gil Scott Heron's new album I'm New Here.

    I'm not familiar with his earlier stuff (or any of his written work) so I can only describe this album as sort Tom Waits meets Boards of Canada.

    I am loving his spoken word stuff so hard right now.

    Soft Machine – A Concise British Alphabet, Pt. 1
    Sun Ra and His Solar Myth Arkestra – Realm Of Lightning - Original
    Charles Mingus – Goodbye Pork Pie Hat

    Duke Pearson – Xibaba
    Horace Silver – Song For My Father

    I've got Metric on fairly high rotation right now.

    Along with Australian band British India who have got a new album out shortly.

    And, for some reason I can only describe as inexplicable, The Jam.

    The new Gaslight Anthem is terrific.

    Also enjoying Laethora's March of the Parasite LP lately. Need to get their new one.

    Earlier this evening it was Busta Rhymes "Woo Hah Woo Hah!" he's got us all in check.

    This very moment I am listening to Soul Coughing's Ruby Vroom album. Again. It finished and I just pushed play again and may very well do it again without remorse.

    I also just discovered, about half an hour ago, (well, I say discovered... more learned a new thing, really): Mike Doughty [who I know through his work with They Might Be Giants] is, in fact, M. Doughty from Soul Coughing [that's how he's credited on the albums] and I never thought/registered that there might be a connection between M. and Mike. After all, I have never seen them in the same room at the same time...

    Point is: that's more than just a passing connection between two bands I've loved for ages ... jesus... 20 years or more for TMBG... and it turns out Doughty also has four solo albums now! That, as far as I'm concerned, is brilliant - new music to investigate from an old and trusted source? Heck yes, boy howdy!
