    @Allen, if you like Soulfly, have a listen to the new Cavalera Consipracy track Inflikted. It bodes well for the album release next month

    yesterday-
    BROADWAYS-big city 7" (gruff beardo popunk)
    RUNNAMUCKS- a different breed 12" (comic nerd hardcore, like 50s rocknroll sped up 6 or 7 times. these guys used to come through PHX every summer, such cool guys to just bullshit and get a little inebriated with)

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


    The only song I've heard from that is Chixdiggit's Quit Your Job.
    But it's so fucking good. 25 sconds long, and it does everything it needs to do.

    Ill Nino - Enigma (leaked copy, I'll reserve full judgement for the official release but it's not sounding good so far)
    Rapeman - Budd EP (noise rock)
    Rasputina - The Lost & Found, 2nd edition (cello-driven alt rock)
    Human Excoriation - Virulent Infestation (brutal death metal, nothing special)
    Hentai Cum Dungeon - Food Product (filth-obsessed NES-driven noisecore / power electronics)

    Levon Helm - A Train Robbery (on repeat)
  3.  (839.50)
    KUNG FU RICK-fragments of past time 2xcd discography (probably my favorite grindcore band of the past seven or so years, this has everything they did)
    BOUNCING SOULS-maniacal laughter (jersey poppunk)
    COMBATWOUNDEDVETERAN-i know a girl who develops crime scene photos LP ( blown out chaosviolence)
    THE VICIOUS-alienated LP (yet again....i love this record. the ghost of los angeles, if it died in 1979)
    HOT CROSS-risk revival LP (sooo good, essentially the second generation of fugazi. one of the best records of 2007, and unfortunately their last)
    LIGHT THE FUSE AND RUN- s/t 7" ( similar vein as hot cross, but more rocknroll-y)

    I'll admit when I'm not listening to whatever counts as industrial I'm usually listening to J-rap.
    For a short while, the only thing keeping me alive was this song: m-flo - Luvotomy
    It was in my car all day today.

    @hmobius Yeah I actually listened to that last night and the other song they have up through MySpace. It should be interesting with that album hitting in March and new Soulfly in the summer. Quite excited over the idea, which is good since music really hasn't gotten me going that much as of late.

    latest Pinback, a band from Vancouver called Chet, NY's Apes and Androids, Howling Wolf and thanks to someone else's post that reminded me to, Robyn Hitchcock's last, Ole Tarantula. "She only wants to see her eyes reflected in the world." That's all I ever wanted.

    I've been listening to the Neon Neon influences mixtape, featuring awful awful things by Paul McCartney, Debbie Gibson and Kraftwerk. It's so wrong, yet so right.

    Recently discovered "Why Bother?", the five part radio series Chris Morris did with Peter Cook. Largely improvised, it's had me in tears.

    On the music front...I strongly disagree on the latest Mars Volta being boring! For my money it's a return to form, Amputecture and Francis the Mute had great moments but where largely ruined by random spurts of static and seemed to be a little too self indulgent for my liking. This seems to be a lot more concise and their new tub thumper will probably tear himself apart trying to do just one last jaw dropping fill.

    Other than that Aphex Twin - Chosen Lords, Alice in Chains - Facelift and Eluvium - Field music are the ones that stick out in my befuddled head.

    @Jerhot - One rather hates to see Los Angeles go up in flames when one doesn't have a camera rolling.

    Today:
    Yakuza - Transmutations. Chicago metal group. Visions of post-metal with splashes of spazz. My mate is ranting on IM right now that Pitchfork reviewed the album and called it a "Neurosis pop song" and honestly that's spot on.

    Patrick Wolf - The Magic Position. I like to smile and PW always makes me smile.

    I loaded some 2008 stuff onto my ipod, so for today it's

    Atmosphere - Simply Leakage (Definitely one of the best (alt? underground? indie) Hip Hop artists currently working, and the new album is great.)
    Future of the Left - Curses! (A slightly more Pop version of Mclusky, still intense and noisy though.)
    Jeffry Lewis - 12 Crass Songs (Great fucking versions of these songs)
    The Devastations - Yes, U (Very cool so far, but then, I have a soft spot for the Australian stuff.)
    The Magnetic Fields - Distortion (It took a couple of weeks, but it finally grew on me.)
    Times New Viking - Rip It Off (Noisy enough to keep people away from my desk.)
    Vampire Weekend - Vampire Weekend (Paul Simon's Graceland for the indie kids, but fun and rhythmically interesting.)

    @Old Moon Face - I think the Honda sponsored Hover Donkey (top speed 110mph) is a favourite of mine, leading on to the militarization of the newly discovered fossilized baby Christ by Sony. I was listening, whilst walking through central Manchester, in near hysterics.

    I forgot to add Dub Trio - Another Dying Sound to my list. More riffs than you can crack a whip at.

    I first listened to that on a train. Fortunately, it was not a crowded one.

    Blue Jam, on the other hand, had me making awful honking noises on a crowded bus.
