    Agreed. I'd love to see a psychadelic animated video to accompany it, too.

    Listening to BBC Radio 6 yesterday ( Lauren Laverne) and she played an orchestral version of Tour de France by Kraftwerk. It was excellent. Check out the BBC i player to hear it.

    Every band on Stress Carrier, especially Fulmarine Petrels, Girls Galore, and Dice Island.

    Weed Hounds from New York.

    The new Crystal Castles, although I still don't know what to think of it. I REALLY like "Celestica" and "Empathy."

    Were Converge good enough to warrant hitching a 3 hour car ride and going to a festival with thousands of macho-metalcore teenagers? They play with Kylesa and Gallows (and more bandsI don't know / don't care about so much).

    heres the deal:if you like this style of music-and you obviously do- CONVERGE is one of the best live bands you are going to see. BUT they are a band that doesnt always translate well to huge shows. they are best in a more intimate setting with no barricades and such so it all depends on how you feel about that kinda situation. i will tell you they are amazing perfomers, sincere,great guys and kids go totally fucking nuts when they play but i have skipped them a few times when they come through town with bigger tours. its personal taste really

    ps KYLESA is a sight to see live with that thunderous two drummer sound. ive always liked them better live than recorded.

    Lately, my music has been dominated by Tom Waits and St. Vincent. And by lately, I mean the last several months. I'm starting to listen to Andrew Bird a lot again, too. I listened to him way too much when Noble Beast came out, and mostly have been listening to his older stuff lately. Noble Beast doesn't have enough whistling.
    Favorite songs of the moment include
    Tom Waits:
    Poor Edward
    Goin out West
    Fish and Bird
    A Good Man is Hard to Find
    I'll Shoot The Moon
    St. Vincent:
    Actor Out of Work
    Jesus Saves, I Spend
    Paris is Burning
    What, Me Worry?
    Andrew Bird:
    Fake Palindromes
    Heretics
    Cataracts
    Plasticities

    all of those bands are ridiculously amazing live, but not in a huge outdoor space, they are all best seen in the smallest space possible. I saw converge play with mastodon high on fire and Dethklok last year and the space was not too huge. Dethklok sounded amazing but for converge there was something that really did not translate to a large space, it was just kind of weird.

    I LOVE St. Vincent! Have been obsessing over "Now, Now" these past two weeks. Beautiful.

    I didn't think it was possible to explain how beautiful that song is with words, but you have done it, my friend. I'm going to go listen to it again. And probably the whole album while I'm at it.

    This week I've been listening to Clutch and Tom Waits a bit, but the player went into Ministry's 'Twitch' and I've fallen in love all over again. Any suggestions for new material you're listening to right now like it would be welcome...
