Nope, although those are quite the chippity chomp indeed!  
There are 3 fish tanks where I work.  One small and really grimy one upstairs on someone's desk, one small clean one on my desk, and a 26-gallon bow tank in the lobby.  That last one is really loud.

And what the hell, might as well mention what I'm listening to now.  The Baron is sitting on the edge of the sofa, purring like crazy.

At this exact moment, I'm listening to "Stuart" by the Dead Milkmen ("Do you know, what the queers, are doing to the soil?")

But lately, I've been listening to lots of MIA.  And I'm fascinated with the Brazilian Girls remix of Blossom Dearie doing "Just One of Those Things" from Verve Remixed 3.

The Beta Band - Heroes to Zeroes
Kinks - Arthur or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire (expanded reissue)
Neil Young - Hawks and Doves (Mainly for side one.  Captain Kennedy is one of my favorite Neil songs)
Elvis Costello - Cruel Smile
Ash - Free All Angels
Boards of Canada - Geogaddi

I love that CD- it still reminds me of a more rockin', grittier Garbage.

Quote from: "mistergugi"
Decemberists - Picaresque (Track 7 - 16 Military Lives)

I just started listening to this at Frenchie's recommendation and I like it already.  It's got a nice medieval storytelling kind of feel to it.  And his voice reminds me of a less gay Brian Molko... if that makes any sense at all.

Quote from: "thepsychicpilot"

Evan Dando - Baby I'm Bored

I still think this one was pretty underrated.  If you don't like it on first listen be sure to give it another chance... or two.  ;)

My latest listens/discoveries have been

Múm- Finally We Are No One
Pulp- It
The Unicorns- Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?
The Zutons- Who Killed The Zutons?

It is tasty, is it not!

I am spinning 'Frances the Mute' by the Mars Volta.  Right now, it really isn't wowing me like I thought it would.  It isn't as though I don't like it, but after reading and hearing all the consistent praise, I was hoping to be floored.

I can tell that, if I am patient, it will grow on me.  After all, it wasn't recorded to be something that is immediately accessable.

I'm listening to the album "Manic Pop Thrill" by That Petrol Emotion at the moment.

I haven't listened to it in a long time, mainly because I found it inside the cover of a Triffids album (God knows where my copy of "Calenture" has gone - some other bugger has their grubby little mits on it, I suppose!)

Anyway, it's nice to hear again.

In-car rotation right now:

Robyn Hitchcock - Spooked
Fugazi - Repeater
Peter Gabriel - Passion:  Music from The Last Temptation of Christ
VHS or Beta

I got VHS or Beta over the weekend and it hasn't wowed me like I thought it would.  It's not bad, but gets a little samey-samey after a while.  I'm a sucker for good Indian-based music, especially Nusrat Fateh Ali Kahn, Ali Akbar Kahn, Ravi Shankar.  I think it comes from George Harrison.  I just can't get enough Fugazi.  And Robyn Hitchcock...he never ceases to amaze me.  Spooked is really really good.  Mellow and eccentric, really well recorded.  Press 3 for Condoleeza, 4 for Death.

Well, you know, it's not like I haven't tried...I ust haven't been too successful.

And it's an album that, from what I've heard of it, I'll probably want to own in its physical form.

But it's all a moot point, really. Not like any of the stores around here will have it. At least not initially.

I like parts of that Pony Up! but some of it is pretty bad.  I could definitely do without "Matthew Modine," but I actually really like "Marlon Brando's Laundromat."

I am listening to Math and Physics Club, Magenta Lane, and I'm on an Iron Maiden kick.

I really need to get the "Pop Loser" column going again.  It's weird that WOXY is suddenly playing a lot of lesser-known indiepop, but unfortunately it's all the bands I don't like.  I have a MicroIndie records cd sampler from November last year and Bearsuit is by far the worst band on it.  And tullycraft has always kinda sucked.

I'm listening to a 'pre-' of the forthcoming Frank Black "Honeycomb" album sent to me by a mate. It's pretty decent from what I've heard, 4 tracks into it.

I'm also playing Swans quite a lot this week.

I'm listening to "Back to the Future" on 97X right now...it's an hour of covers.

Which begs the question...with the new channel launching this weekend, are they still going to do Back to the Future? Seeing as how the new channel will essentially be BTTF 24/7?

Oh dear lord, it's a "Like a Virgin" cover...

Ahhh, The Wire's Three Girl Rhumba, aka the song that Elastica completely ripped off.  Soo cool.

So far, I recognize probably 85% of the songs WOXY is playing.  It must be even cooler for Miss Kitty who knows every last one of them.
Title: What are you listening to right now?
Post by: Jonathan on May 28, 2005, 02:57:18 AM
I'd say I'm probably at about 50%. Which is actually cool, because if I knew them all, or even 85%, it'd be like listening to the Modern Rock 500 on an infinite loop.

I'm still doing better than my buddy Dan, who, when "Black Coffee in Bed" came on, confidently identified the artist as Crowded House. This prompted much derision from me. And bad luck on him for screwing up the artist of a six-minute long song, because that's how long I was teasing him, even breaking into singing "Hey now, heyyyy now, don't dreeeeeeam it's over" at one point.

I'm such a good friend.

Belle and Sebastian - Your Cover's Blown

Mike called it B&S's "masterpiece" during the Modern Rock 500 this weekend. And you know what? Mike might just very well be right.

I think it was my favorite song of 2004.

Rawk on, psychicp.  Glad someone here likes Velvet Crush.

The Secret Machines cd is very good.  It's a bit unusual-- kinda 80's new wave meets 70's hard rock in a way.  But like Spacey sez, if you like the songs you heard on WOXY, you'll dig 'em.  One of the better albums of the last year or so, definitely.
Title: What are you listening to right now?
Post by: Rafe on June 03, 2005, 03:12:45 PM
I think it's a great album. We saw them in March supporting Ian Brown, and there was an instrumental break during one of their songs that was so sonically intense, it seriouly took me back to watching Ride or The Telescopes. Their drummer is also pretty impressive. Simple technique, but he belts the shit out of his kit without pausing for breath.
Title: What are you listening to right now?
Post by: berzerker on June 03, 2005, 03:16:55 PM
I saw them last summer, in NYC. I had only heard a song or 2 on the WOXY, and really liked them. Sort of reminded me of Hum, a bit.
They put on a great show. I went with the wife, her bro who lives in NYC, and 2 friends. Everyone was pretty impressed. Not bad for going on a whim, more or less.

I've just started getting into hyphy.  What's that, you ask?  Well, hyphy is the Bay Area (aka "Yay Area")'s answer to crunk.  Artists incude the Federation (who own the titular song, "Hyphy" which features Bay Area icon E-40), and Keak da Sneak.  The beats are electronica-influenced, and the rhymes are crisp.

It's not everyone's cup of tea, but if you like rap, you might want to check it out.

The new Paul Weller - "Sonik Kicks". May take a few more listens but it sounds like Style Council meets Can meets Culture meets Weller's recognisable Mod sensibilities. Not as immediate as 2010's utterly BRILLIANT "Wake up the Nation" but ask me again in a few weeks.

There was an interesting review in today's Financial Times about Weller's concert in London a few days ago where he played the new album in its entirety. I'm not much of a Weller fan to be honest, but that's neither here nor there. I appreciate the guy for what he is, and he seems to have found new relevance since the "Wake Up the Nation" album and now the new one.

Damn you. Damn you and your good tastes. I was unimpressed with that song the first two times I heard it (it's really really not in my wheelhouse) but after hearing it about 3 or 4 times...it's a grower. And now the video? What is she, 16? (wait...wikipedia says 20, phew.) I really enjoy the lack of typical musical structures in that tune, the simplicity of the video, and, um, uh, her.

"212" might be my least favorite of the songs I've heard. But, I might need to listen to it more than twice.

I sent this song to foolsgold earlier today. Makes me think of Bill Withers + Nick Drake.

Of Monsters and Men?  They're Icelandic.  Everyone thinks they sound like a female-fronted Mumford and Sons but I think they sound more like Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.  They like to yell "Hey!" a lot in their songs.  If you like that song, you'll like the album.

Yeah, they need to learn a little about dynamics and then they won't come off so "Soul/R&B Hammer."

They're getting way, way over-hyped, but it's still pretty good for a first album.  And I feel like it comes across real enough that I can enjoy it on its own terms.  I don't think it's any sort of artistic achievement but it's fun to listen to.

they are definitely hit or miss with me now. as a teenager i wanted to like it all because it felt like a big "fuck you", but when i go back now....some of it i have to skip because it gets too atonal, but there is a stretch in the middle of black and white that is very good.

Is 2012 the year of the Krautrock revival? If so, I'm pretty chuffed, and I envisage sales of old Neu! albums to go through the roof. Two such heavily influenced tunes I've been listening to recently:


Toy - Motoring (Secret Machines wish they'd have written it)
Public Service Broadcasting - Spitfire (released this week. It's a belter)

Brilliant - Ultravox

<Insert album art here>

So far, I'm digging it. The songs are solid and the sound is enough of a callback to their past glory but with enough contemporary touches that it doesn't feel like they are trying too hard to reclaim their past success. Highlights (for me) are: Flow, Rise, Hello, and Remembering. And for all the people who accuse Muse of stealing from Radiohead, I challenge them to listen to 'Hello' and hear where Muse really got it from. Midge still has the pipes and Billy Curie is still amazing on the keys.

The recent 2-disc reissues of the first three Small Faces albums.  Great liner notes, photos and graphics.  Most importantly, the sound is fantastic--especially on the mono version of their second self-titled album (two self-titled albums...makes me wonder if The Velvet Underground, Os Mutantes, Gal Costa, Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil and Peter Gabriel were all taking notes).  Strange, but the reissue of that album is in a hardcover-book styled format whereas the other two are in digipacs.  Also, those other two have a much longer essay in each.  Not sure what the deal is there.  Will also doubtlessly be springing for the 3-disc reissue of "Ogden's" eventually.

I just went back and listened to their first album and it's way different.  Well sorta way different. 

The second one is all Byrdsian jangly guitar psychedelic power pop.  The first one is more heavy, psychedelic gaze-y/stoner.  Sorta Pink Floyd meets Stone Roses.

They are both good.

Yeah, the first one is quite different from the new one, although there are a couple of Floydian type tunes that found their way on the new one.

When I worked for Bogart's booking agency I tried in vain to get The Shoes booked there. The band appreciated my efforts and sent me an awesome care package of goodies. LOVE THEM!!

Mentioned this elsewhere but I discovered two albums last night by Seth Avett of the Avett Brothers from 2009 on Rdio.  The artist is listed as Timothy Seth Avett as Darling, which sounds pretentious as hell, I know.  These are both very good.  They are obviously not as polished as the Avett's stuff but if you're a fan of Seth's ballads (Ballad of Love and Hate, In the Curve etc.) you will like this.  There is some playfulness but they're not as obviously silly/fun as the Avett canon. 

Dude must have songs coming out of his ears.  Good thing for me that I don't tire of them.

I stumbled onto Bill Fay and his latest album (the regrettably named Life is People) on Spotify and am completely taken with it.  I'm not great at comparing how this album stacks up with others or where it stands historically, but what is apparent is that it's a blood pressure reducing recording and I sort of need that right now.  His is also a need story of personal redemption after toiling in obscurity for most of his career.

This is why I don't want to leave music behind: all these odd, little discoveries which land at your feet at the perfect time.  A complete stranger now shelters with you.  It's a good thing.

Streaming on NPR (http://www.npr.org/2012/09/03/160323435/first-listen-the-xx-coexist)

I'm three tracks in. It's ok - more of the same really, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Maybe a bit more upbeat than the debut.

EDIT: I got really bored by the end. But it took about two years for the debut to grow on me, so I'm not going to condemn it as crap just yet.

I think you are not the only one who thinks that High Violet is not The National's best moment. I sorta like the album, but that's it.

I am surprised to say I have been actively listening to the CD of modern psych accompanying the March 2013 issue of Mojo.  Some of the bands included here are Tame Impala, Temples, Django Django, Moon Duo, Toy, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Animal Collective and Wooden Shjips.  The Mojo CD is usually a wildly hit-or-miss affair, but this one is pretty solid throughout and makes for a good mix representative of the current resurgence in this genre.  One curious aspect is some of the bands are so similar in sound that one may not realize they are listening to a different track than a minute before, but that may say more about the bands collected here than the compilation itself.

I am surprised to say I have been actively listening to the CD of modern psych accompanying the March 2013 issue of Mojo.  Some of the bands included here are Tame Impala, Temples, Django Django, Moon Duo, Toy, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Animal Collective and Wooden Shjips.  The Mojo CD is usually a wildly hit-or-miss affair, but this one is pretty solid throughout and makes for a good mix representative of the current resurgence in this genre.  One curious aspect is some of the bands are so similar in sound that one may not realize they are listening to a different track than a minute before, but that may say more about the bands collected here than the compilation itself.
I saw it sitting on the shelf at Shake It the other day and was mightily tempted to pick it up. Based on your 'endorsement', I just may have to give in...

I almost got that confused with OMC, the "How Bizarre" people, until I realized that after all this time I still remembered what OMC stood for so it obviously couldn't be OMD.  Yet I have a hard time remembering to pick up milk or bread on the way home, or that I need to call the bank and other run of the mill day to day tasks.

After I saw OMD last weekend, I asked my buddies why they didn't play "How Bizarre". It's still a solid joke, in my opinion.

But that's not what I'm listening to. Grooving on Goat's album at the moment, in anticipation of seeing them this weekend.

Yeah, that's a good one.  The songwriting/musicianship is fantastic.

The only thing I have with it is that it's a little tough to wade through in one sitting.  Fortunately, it came out at the same time that the equally excellent Corin Ashley album did.  So I put them together on a playlist and hit random.  Then you got some Syd Barret-esque psychedlia and some Byrdsian merseybeat.  It's like a trip to 1967.

Secret Machines - Now Here Is Nowhere & Ten Silver Drops
Dr. Dog - We All Belong & Fate
Paul Westerberg - Suicaine Gratifaction
David Byrne & Brian Eno - Everything That Happens...

On deck I've got albums from:

Supergrass
The Clash
Catfish Haven

It's been somewhat of a rediscovery. I've added several more songs to my Spotify starred playlist since starting this.

It's so different! At first I was like "what the fuck is this", but as the song progressed I liked it more and more. It's kind of like an Arcade Fire/LCD Soundsystem mash-up - it's a dance track, but with the Arcade Fire edge of melancholy. Guess that makes a lot of sense, since James Murphy had a big hand in it.

Yesterday it was all Jane Birkin; today it's all albums from 1987, prompted by Slicing Up Eyeballs posting their poll of best albums from that year. For my money, there's precious little from '87 that I'd be willing to call a classic.

It's kind of like an Arcade Fire/LCD Soundsystem mash-up - it's a dance track, but with the Arcade Fire edge of melancholy. Guess that makes a lot of sense, since James Murphy had a big hand in it.

The first time I heard it (when I watched that vid), I wondered when it would be over as it was so darn repetitive! Then I heard it on 6music and it sounded better (maybe because it was more familiar). I had thought to pre-order the album but now I think I am going to hold off. I wasn't a huge fan of their last album so I think I'll take a wait and see approach.

As for listening, this:

The first half is a bit sludgey for my tastes, but I like the second half. Honestly, I wish they'd do an entire album that sounds like "No. 1 Party Anthem".

Yeah, I know the roster, but there's seriously maybe five items on that list that I'd return to with any regularity today. I specifically remember STOPPING listening to 97X around that time because I so disliked the whole Green On Red/Long Ryders rootsy, 12-string, reverby, alt-country-rock thing that was creeping in at the time. As one of the commenters mentioned over on Eyeballs' FB post, this was about the time that post-punk was giving way to American indie rock, and that pretty much nails my problem: weirdo British early 80s post-punk hits at my core, but the godfathers of American indie rock leave me utterly cold. 'Mats, post-Pageant R.E.M., Hoodoo Gurus, Smithereens, Husker Du, even The Pixies... I fundamentally don't care for any of it. At the time that the old Brits (U2, Depeche Mode, The Cure) were gaining popularity in the US, I was losing interest because I thought they were treading in their own cliches and worst tendencies. Nope, I didn't find much to love again until '88.

I wanted to Kickstarter that album, except I refuse to join Kickstarter.

"You Wouldn't Have to Ask" would probably make my list of top 10 power pop songs ever.  It's the perfect model of a pop song.  So streamlined. One drum hit as a intro, three stinging verses,  big harmonized choruses, bridge, solo, and outro all in a tidy 1:52.  Not a single wasted note in that song.  I spent two weeks trying to break down that song in every way imaginable to try and see how it was done and if I could do it.  There was nothing unique about it that you could point to, it was just you know, every part was perfect.

Too bad the rest of Bad Books' stuff was crap/mediocre.

I love the new Greg Pope and the new Vegas with Randolph album is also pretty solid.

Half the City by St. Paul and the Broken Bones.

Julie found this one.  I probably would have dismissed it out of hand as not being my thing but she was listening to it while working around the house over the weekend and it dug it's way into my subconscious.  Kind of a mix of Rock, Blues and Motown style R&B, nothing super original but they do it well.  The singer has some definite soul in his voice, the horns are fantastic, the band is tight and the mix is sharp.

I've had the upcoming Afghan Whigs album in the car all weekend. It's excellent and not in that 20 years later version of Gentlemen or rock is back cliche that I'm sure outlets like Paste and Rolling Stone will cling to. It's just really, really good. The first three songs are fantastic and I'm honestly confused as to why "Algiers" and "The Lottery" are the first two singles. I like them but they also are the weakest songs on the album.

That's about as mainstream of a listen as I've done in awhile. Knew people would be interested to know how Do The Beast is. Hate the album name, but be prepared for a great, in-the-now album.

I think someone mentioned this already somewhere on these boards, but the new Elbow album is quite good.  You have to like the longer, more sweeping songs of theirs in order to enjoy this, since more than half the songs are over 5 minutes long... but rarely is the build-up in each of them not worth it.

I like it a lot too.  Garvey has one of my favorite voices and he's also can turn a phrase along with the best of them right now.  My only complaint is that I wish they'd write more elegantly debauched songs like "Tailfly," "Grounds for Divorce," "The Fix," or even the first part of "Fly Boy."  As it stands, they're beginning to drift into the National territory where the records always sound good and are always high quality, but a bit one dimensional in tone.

The new Christmas album from Over the Rhine, "Blood Oranges In the Snow" (out on Tuesday) is now streaming at the New York Times:

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/arts/music/pressplay.html?_r=3&

I've had this for a while. It has grown on me, I must admit. "My Father's Body" gives me shivers. But still not the classic that is OtR's very first Christmas album from 1996, "Darkest Night of the Year", which I humbly believe is one of the most unique and special Christmas albums of all times, period.

I've been watching Spotify for anything new from Pale.
We've had the song  "Fearing Faces" added a couple time to the monthly playlist nothing new from them.   

I just discovered they have an EP that is a few months old on SoundCloud.

On another note, congratulations XX for putting two songs on your new album that I don't entirely dislike! In the manner of which you talk during interviews, Dangerous and On Hold *shoegazes* don't suck.

Two days ago, hit two 11 minute songs in a row on shuffle on my way home...  "This Corrosion" by Sisters of Mercy and "Supersymmetry" by Arcade Fire.  I decided after those two to just say "fuck it, what's the longest song I have on here" and played Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" which is over 15 minutes, and had 2/3 of my slightly longer than hour commute home taken by 3 songs.  In looking this morning those are 3 of the 6 longest songs in my whole 4,000 song Spotify list.

He co-wrote "You Never Even Call Me By My Name" for David Allen Coe.  Is that what you are thinking about?

Although I don't know if Coe's claim that he killed someone in the joint was ever proven and it happened before he was a singer.  However, the claim that DAC is complete fucking asshole has been well-documented and proven beyond any doubt.

The song "If You Don't Want My Love", from Prine's 1978 album Bruised Orange, lists Phil Spector as co-writer along with Prine. 

Spector's crime was really senseless.  He had it all and then to do something like that...

I've been listening incessantly to Film School's "Fission" album. Yes, I know it came out in 2010.

Lovely but weird band, that Film School. Not to mention they seem to go "underground" for long stretches (as in: nobody has any idea what the hell they are up to). Saw them live at the old SGH in 07 or 08, what a fabulous show that was. Sadly, they don't seem to tour much.

I listened to the latest Depeche Mode album, "Spirit" (finally arrived from my local library).

What a freaking snooze fest! Not a single track that "grabbed" me. Wow, how has DM fallen so low... Used to be one of my favorite bands. They haven't released an album since the 2001 "exciter" album that is any good, really.

on a total whim, I recently bought the Kayak box set "Journey Through Time: The Complete Studio Recordings", a 21 CD box set for just $95 on Amazon.

I guess most here may not be familiar with this Dutch band. They released 3 fantastic albums in the early/mid 70s which I loved (think smart prog/pop rock), and they disbanded in the early 80s (end of era 1), only to resurface in the early 00s (and still going strong, apparently). I wasn't too familiar, ok not all all, with the latter day output. I've wanted their 70s/early 80s albums and for this price, I just couldn't resist. Been listening to it a LOT (but not to to their latter day output). A trip down memory lane for me (growing up in Belgium). Money well spent.

Anyone who might be interested (CR?), here my review on Amazon:

So I think I like the new Broken Social Scene album better than the new Arcade Fire album.  Neither are great, but BSS at least redeemed themselves for FORGIVENESS ROCK RECORD.

Arcade Fire, I really liked REFLEKTOR, though many did not, but it did have its clunky moments.  This album flips the ratio of quality to clunky.  I think there are only 4 songs I really enjoy, and only a couple that I think will last... "Electric Blue" and maybe "Creature Comfort", though the lyrics to it are WAY too obvious.  So I don't hate it, but I don't like it all that much.

And if you don't like Creature Comfort, watch a Youtube of it live, as it improves the song about 75%.
