    To describe my Sunday night:

    The man on stage spends a few moments discussing, at unusual length, what he describes as Woody Guthrie's manly tumescence. "It's the kind of word that just sounds good when you say it into the microphone, isn't it?" There is a long pause. Nobody hears the sound technician crank up the reverb, as the artist leans in and says, plainly, "TUMESCENCE," and lets it echo out across the field.

    And then launches into Ingrid Bergman.

    So today I am listening to Mermaid Avenue, because I saw Billy Bragg on Sunday and he was pretty awesome.

    Sex Bob-omb. Repeatedly.

    Also the new Underworld album, Barking, which maintains their usual excellent standard.

    Psychorama by Bathcrones, courtesy of No Pain In Pop. Dizzying, gorgeous stuff.

    And continuing to go to bed with the self-titled Hymie's Basement album. I will never tire of that.

    andrew bird - noble beast.

    still not sure how I feel about this.

    You ought to feel great about it because that album is fantastic. I mean, I like Armchair Apocrypha a little better, but Noble Beast is incredible.

    Edit: I'm listening to Andrew Bird now, too. Arm in arm with all the harmless sociopaths, wearing nothing but a onesie and a veil.

    Haha, totally! Rest of the soundtrack is really growing on me. Rolling Stones "Under my Thumb" is on there too. The lyrics fit with the context of the movie's story, but in my mind I figure Gideon being a pretentious hipster douche would totally blast that to make everyone think he appreciates them.

    Also still hooked on this Karma to Burn song. John Garcia adds his voice to it. It's like the second coming of KYUSS

    Earthling by David Bowie. I fell in love with that album the first time I heard it in '97, and it still gives me the chills. Always on heavy rotation at my house.

    Lately? Lots of Gaslight Anthem, Titus Andronicus, Black Keys, Mumford & Sons, Arcade Fire.

    @chris g Yeah, the soundtrack is wholly ace. I wish there had been more Sex Bob-omb and Crash & The Boys, though. I think "I'm So Sad, So Very Very Sad" is perfect.

    Jaga Jazzist sounds to me like the bastard Norwegian grandchild of Hatfield & The North. (A pretty obscure reference point these days...)

    writing to CEREMONY. the new record sounds like hopelessness, the last one sounds like hatred and punching. its a nice back and forth.

    Charming Hostess - All the different albums and projects listed on that page have different tones and vibes, ranging from things that remind me of They Might Be Giants, to Andrew Bird, to Manhattan Transfer.

    The Budos Band reminds me of what I wanted Tuatara to be, combined with a Blacksploitation score.

    Both those bands I discovered by listening to the WFMU playlists of Airborne Event with Dan Bodah, my new favorite radio show. Screw Pandora. Search WFMU for your favorite obscure band, see what DJs have listed it on one of their playlists, and then enjoy going through the years and years of archives.
