    I seem to be stuck on playing that Burial/KODE9 mix they did for Mary Anne Hobbes, before she left R1.

    When I manage to choose something else it's Lulu Rouge – Bless You (minimal tech house stuffs, bit of dub) and John Coltrane, because I like to cook listening to Jazz.

    @Texture – digging that Reso track.

    can't believe I never heard this before:

    "I don't need no t.v. screen, I just stick the ariel into my skin and let the signal run through my veins"

    Today has been one of those overcast writing paper days so it's been all vinyl in an excuse to get me to move off my butt every 25min so

    Tim Hecker - Ravedeath
    Destroyer - Kaputt (mostly the side w/ The Loneliest River over and over)
    Destroyer's Rubies (mostly the loscil's rubies side over and over)
    Matmos - Supreme Baloon

    I did break the vinyl rule to listen to Keith Fullerton Whitman's Playthroughs while on the porch
    and the vinyl rule was broken while making homemade mac + cheese & choc pudding w/ the lady. We listened to the new prefuse73 and rode the chillwaves.

    @FrancisSobriety yes, Is This Hyperreal? is the next ATR album. It's uplifting in a lot of ways ATR hasn't been before. It's an energetic bastard too, lots of Alec's chiptune and 90s breakbeat hardcore are more prominent in the mix.

    I am an idiot and the new Burial EP is real good. 'NYC' in particular is becoming one of my trax of the year. Continuing to rinse The Magic Place, and moving steadily on to Sharon Van Etten's Epic, which is gorgeous.

    SLAPSTICK-discography (one of my all time favorites, ska punk that holds up 15 years later. sincere songs by kids about stupid kid shit and what we thought growing up was gonna be like, even if we were all wrong)
    BRIGHT CALM BLUE-ep (twitchy synthy stuff)
    REEL BIG FISH-turn the radio off (another ska band, we used to see them like once a month before they broke huge. fun shows. the opposite of SLAPSTICK in that 15 years later it does not hold up to scrutiny at all. half these songs are about starting a band, or being in a band or writing ska songs. once you notice the theme, the whole record just sounds like a joke, written by older dudes trying to get money and get laid. fun, but the irony isnt as humorous as when i was 15 and the joke just seems to be on everyone of us that went to their shows and helped them break. am i thinking too hard about The Ska Explosion of 1996? probably)

    @tacopunch - Awesome. I am officially going on another Digital Hardcore binge. It broke my heart that when they started a musical revolution it DIDN'T take over the world as promised. It's possible that I prefer Lolita Storm to ATR but I'm definitely ready to hear their new work!

    @joe.distort - I sort of know what you mean about RBF, because I find it quite uncomfortable knowing that middle-aged men sing songs to impressionable teens about what it is to be a misanthropic teen, but at the same time....they can be pretty damn catchy!
    Do you listen to a lot of new ska? I struggle to find modern bands that capture the sound I loved back then. I guess I moved on to bands like Tiger Army and Creepshow, Hellcat bands and stuff like Sonic Boom Six, but none of it feels the same. Streetlight Manifesto too I suppose.
    Any ideas, or did you move on too?
