    As it's the start of a month and a new week, what's everyone listening to now that the days are slowly starting to get longer?

    As for me, here's a short selection.....

    Been getting into Don Caballero thanks to a band we signed last year (these guys). Really digging it, this is the missing link between Slint and Tortoise for me.

    Love Don Cab.

    The past couple of days it's been a lot of Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and Frank Zappa for me.

    Listening to the Smiths and actually KNOWING that I'm listening to the Smiths for the first time....

    Also re-listening to some of my old Momus records, along with a guest song or two. I kind of miss that Japan obsessed weirdo.

    After spending much time with the free mp3s floating around the internet, have finally got Salem's debut album King Night. I imagine it taking up a lot of my listening time in the coming weeks.

    Other than that, lots of Male Bonding and Micachu + the Shapes. London still brings the noise.

    The dark winter tunes have settled in. I've had Demdike Stare - Tryptych on heavy rotation as well as the new Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corp mini-LP, Anthropomorphic.

    Also listening to the new Creep single on repeat (including the Deadboy remix):

    Yann Tiersen and band, US Tour, Dallas. Stuck in a bus, they chose to make music :)

    Yesterday was mostly Sibelius symphonies. Today seems like it might be a Coltrane, Davis, Mingusy sort of day. We'll see what happens.

    Eliane Radigue - Trilogie De La Mort
    One of the most elegant pieces of drone I've heard.
    • CommentTimeFeb 4th 2011
    ooh! elegant drone, you say? i'm on it.

    right now i'm in need of new. i've been listening to the new Ducktails and last year's War on Drugs, and the new Forms EP. but they're mostly really boring.

    Just got back home from seeing Stian Westerhus live. Drone yes, elegant no. Bye bye, cobwebs of the brain.

    @allana Really into her at the moment. Just read this about another piece:
    Biogenesis, completed in 1974, actually combines the heartbeats of her son and her pregnant daughter, with the rhythms of her grandchild, then still in the womb. This "hymn to the perpetuation of life" was realized using an ordinary microphone and a stethoscope. The technique was primitive, "something absolutely not professional", but the result is stirringly corporeal.

    I feel somewhat lesser after reading the other comments, but I've been listening to the Cold War Kids new album somewhat religiously for the past few days.

    Edit: well, I was going to try to embed the song Royal Blue from youtube, but I can't for the life of me get it working.

    Edit again: And just like that I get it working.

    This week I have been listening to Smalltown Boy by Bronski Beat. Over and over and over again. I'm not going to link to it - you know where to find it, and I don't want to be directly responsible for your mistakes.
