It may be their best yet. Definitely their most consistent, anyway.

And now I'm finally catching up all that Bowie I missed before I was born.

Ah, Bowie. I was just reminiscing with an old friend last night about that brief glimpse of adolescence in which we have impossible - truly impossible - crushes. Both Sarah and I spent a fair amount of time wondering what life would be like when David Bowie finally got around to marrying us.

Music-wise, today and yesterday has been more or less dedicated to De Kift. I love them. Anyone else?

I've been listening to a local artist, Sarah Jaffe (not the ex erase errata guitarist). I saw her in concert in May. One of my friend's friends from high school plays cello for her. She's playing a few shows around Texas in the next few months.

I've also been listening to a lot of Bon Iver (esp. Re:Stacks and For Emma), Joni Mitchell (esp. This Flight Tonight), Hem (Carry Me Home), and Bodies of Water (I Guess We'll Forget the Sound, I Guess, I Guess).


P.S. Has anyone checked out the new OR album?

Oh YES! Listen to sea and get Antony... Then go and get Marianne Faithfull's latest, Easy Come Easy Go. It features Antony as well, along with such lovely people as Rufus Wainwright, Sean Lennon, Teddy Thompson, Nick Cave and Jarvis Cocker.

I've been listening to SixToes - Trick Of The Night. I found these guys in a rather unlikely way: they have made an absolutely superb remix of a Depeche Mode song from the latest album. It's not unlikely that I should listen to Depeche Mode, I'm a huuuuge Martin Gore fan (although the latest DM album is not really interesting, unfortunately) but a very unlikely remixer. Depeche Mode goes... uh... folk? Anyway, check it out:

Been on a old-fashioned emo kick lately, so that means Braid and Algernon Cadwallader and the like are getting rotation.
Also, apparently a lot of Cloud Cult and John Vanderslice, according to my last.fm.

It's probably because of me.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw that Jason Vieaux was on NPR's Tiny Desk concert today:

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/stor ... =105215426

He is a wonderful classical guitarist - I saw him last year at UGA. His performance at least equalled that of Christopher Parkening, who performed a few months later.

Nickel Creek "Out Of The Woods"

Since cruzichick got me to check them out due to their Britney Spears "Toxic" cover in the sadly neglected "cover me" thread http://board.shearwatermusic.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2138 I'm totally stuck on the song!

Einstürzende Neubauten - Silence Is Sexy

It's such a beautiful, beautiful album.

Gosh, it's been ages since I listened to Einstürzende Neubauten...

I am, at this moment, listening to Cheap Trick, The Latest. It was assigned for review, and I know it's a bit late (it's already available) but the publicist neglected to send a physical copy, so my editor obtained the digital...either that, or the publicist sent the physical copy to the publication HQ instead of directly to me and my editor likes it so much she's keeping it for herself (which I totally understand, by the way.)!

Sometimes my work is such a chore... :wink:

It's a dirty work, etc... :mrgreen:

When it comes to Neubauten I listen to Silence Is Sexy and Kollaps quite a lot. The former because it's so beautiful and soothing, and the latter because it's so... eh... beautiful but not exactly soothing, perhaps, but perfect for example in buses, subways, trains etc when I want to drown out everything else. 8)
