    Also made myself a cd of songs from season 2 of Sons of Anarchy which includes a great cover of 'Girl from the North Country' by The Lions and which I've played 6-7 times over today.

    JANELLE MONAE-the ArchAndroid (Really varied, interesting record about a robot messiah. Put out, and this is the WTF moment of the year, by P. Diddy. Not coincidentally, this is the same artist IssacSher is talking about. It's all over the map in the best way.)

    THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM-American Slang (Songs are incredibly catchy, even more so than the last one. Is are dotted and the Ts are the crossed.)

    DEAD TO ME-African Elephants (Dear God, this record is uneven and shaky. Hopefully they can recover from losing Jack on the next record.)

    Don't know about this one...couldn't seem to really jumpstart it. But it gave me an excuse to play the latest from The Necks.

    Selections from Camera Obscura and Girls. Indie sunshine music.

    Also Johnny Foreigner, but not too much. Don't want to wear them out.

    New Crystal Castles still doing the rounds. Getting lovelier.

    Mount Kimbie EPs, bought mainly because of their association with James Blake. Nice enough, but can't help thinking Burial's "Fostercare" did all this soooo much better.

    God help me, I'm listening to Lady Gaga. And I'm enjoying it. I'm blaming Glee for this.

    Grabbed a load of stuff last night, including:

    Broken Bells (interesting so far, I love Danger Mouse's production work)
    New UNKLE (different but good)
    New LCD Soundsystem (I'm savoring this one...)
    The Hundred In The Hands new EP (synthpop is alive and kicking)
    Yello "Touch" (these guys still have it solid)
    Antony and the Johnsons "The Crying Light" (good Lord, these songs just tear me apart with their beauty)
    also, singer Billie Ray Martin has been going back and doing really soulful housey updates on old Cabaret Voltaire songs, with the involvement of Richard Kirk. I know it sounds like a train wreck, but damn if she doesn't pull it off. So far she's released "The Crackdown" and "Just Fascination" with an ton of mixes.

    Bonobo - Days To Come. Saw them a few days ago; awesome as expected.
  7.  (8291.34)
    SOCIETY NURSE-7" ripping distorted core that is unfortunately way too short. want more now.

    PENNYWISE-s/t 12" sometimes i get a hankerin for 90s melodic epitaph stuff. you know from back when bands on epitaph had a sound, as opposed to now when its scattershot and the only common thread is the look?

    Unkle : balancing the new record out with End Titles… Redux
    Glitch Mob : everything wrong about midtempo nu metal rhythms is right when played as banging electro.
    New Amsterdam Records comp
    Nimmo and the Gauntlets : most promising thing I’ve heard from the Strummerville foundation
    Sex Clark Five : the right kind of guitar pop
    Stranger & Patsy

    Deftones - Diamond Eyes
    The Cure - Boys Don't Cry
    Stone Temple Pilots - their new self titled album... can't get into it.
    The Black Keys - Brothers... pretty good.

    So two members of Fall Out Boy (shudder) + two members of Anthrax + the lead singer of Every Time I Die = this

    I think I'd rather just have a new Every Time I Die album.
