    Iron Maiden, A Matter of Life and Death. Benjamin Breeg and Brighter Than a Thousand Suns sorta carry the whole album by themselves, but they do such a good job that it doesn't matter so much.

    this week it's all about The Rough Bunnies.
    Lo-fi sweedish girl pop. I don't see how it could get any better.

    f.a.o Brent Wilcox........haven't heard the new Faust/Nurse With Wound yet. It's always exciting/terrifying when two of your favourites hook up. There's always the possibility that they might somehow cancel each other out.

    New Subtle: Unlikely Rock Shock
    Anticon newbie Son Lux: Break - I'm very excited for the album based on this song. The intro is so jarring, and the song itself so pretty and fraught. I love it.

    Alice in Chains.

    What a fucking waste.


    Man, I was just listening to the Unplugged album the other day. I played "Brother" over and over again and have been humming it ever since.

    SHORT MUSIC FOR SHORT PEOPLE-compilation of 101 30 second poppunk songs. sure 40% of it sucks, but that still leaves 60 good songs.

    Just laid my hands on the recording of Stockhausen's STIMMUNG by Paul Hillier & Theatre of Voices.

    I'm getting in to the DNA Lounge's mixtapes. Great background music for work.

    I think the combination works. NWW lends some subtlety to the mix, they seem to bring out the best in each other.

    Probably my favorite Stockhausen piece (or perhaps KONTACT).

    Been listening to whole albums with the goal of reviewing them for my blog. Also I have so much shit that I haven't listened to. But today I listened to spoons newest album from front to back, and just put on some Fugazi because I saw a kid walking around with a Fugazi patch on his backpack.

    Mmm. Late night listening to "Impossibly Beautiful" by Note for a Child. Album name says it all really.

    Between the Buried and Me - Colors

    It's very good progressive metal, and not at all what I was expecting. Having never heard them before, I figured I should probably listen to some of their stuff as I will be seeing them (along with Dillinger Escape Plan and Stolen Babies) in Glasgow in just over a week. I cannot wait.

    Also listened to Music for Nitrous Oxide by Stars of the Lid. Lovely ambient stuff - perfect music for reading.

    just found a copy of elvis costello's "brutal youth", which seems to be impossible to find in my neck of the woods. made me me miss his more rock-type stuff, so i've been listening to "when i was cruel" as well.

    also, "introducing foxy shazam". these guys are the future of rock and roll.

    currently listening to my slacker station, as my ipod is a piece of shit.

    between the buried and me was really, really bad when i saw them a few years back, so i hope for your sake that they pull it off a lot closer to the recorded sound, nil.

    DEADFALL-comrades ep (eastbay hardcore thrash)
    MARILYN MANSON-golden age of grotesque
    STONE TEMPLE PILOTS-best of (seriously)
    ESPN RADIO- the only radio station i can stand, even then in small increments

    I have a sudden, sick desire to listen to Linkin Park.

    Cheers Joe, I hope so too. On the plus side, Dillinger are the main draw for me, so if Between the Buried and Me are awful it won't be too much of a blow.

    haha, that sick desire is what drove me to STP. and i can totally relate, the only reason i even saw BTTBAM was because they were playing in between ISIS and CONVERGE. or was it BOTCH? fuck im drawing a blank.

    I'm listening to lots of Soulfly and other metal music that I listened to in high school for a story I'm writing. Odd that much of this music I just don't even think of anymore but the instant I hear it begin I'm brought back to that time. Well odd probably isn't the right word it's a great quality of music.

    Anyways I have a question and figure this is the best place to ask. On the Engine someone posted a link to Cruella De Ville's "Gypsy Girl". Since then I have lost all my music and really want a copy of that to play while driving around. Can anyone help me find it? Wikipedia says there is a fan CD roaming around as well so the whereabouts of how to obtain one of those would rock even more. Thanks in advance.

    @heil_brittanica, THANK YOU.

    I avoided Foxy Shazam, because of the stupid name, but damn I should have listened before now. That's fun stuff.
