Today I went to my local music store and bought the Frank Black self-titled (I lost my old one yeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaarrrrrrssssssss ago and I've been missing it) and another Tom Waits. Special-ordered Cheryl Wheeler.

You can never have enough Tom Waits. And but Gogol Bordello's "Gypsy Punks (Underdog World Strike)" as it's their best one.

I have been listening to a pretty large mix lately. A few faves old and new are:
'Sondre Lerche'
'Of Montreal'
'Mull Historical Society'
'The M's'
'Built To Spill'
'The Flaming Lips'
And the new (and sadly last of) 'Grandaddy'
Oh and 'Wolfmother'

I haven't listened to that Rival Schools album in a long time, but I really like it. I've been so out of the loop. I did get a copy of the new Dresden Dolls, though, and I'm enjoying it very much. I'm still listening to a lot of Ted Leo, who's quoted in my current sig.


------
"Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don't learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying 'yes' begins things. Saying 'yes' is how things grow. Saying 'yes' leads to knowledge."

Lan- I love Built to Spill. Perfect from Now On is such a great album. I actually saw them live at a small festival in the country in Belgium, around the time Keep It Like a Secret came out. Them and Arab Strap were the two headliners, it was pretty good.

The two songs that I like the most by them at first listen are 'Untrustable' and 'Goin Against Your Mind'. I am trying to give some other stuff of theirs a listen.

Listen to the Hold Steady
Go to www.theholdsteady.com
Download the two free tracks
See their shows
Listen to their new album, Seperation Sunday

Its like a pudgier Elvis Costello was an American Beat poet who could best express his Catholic faith through a rollicking concept album that combines a bar band Ramones meets Springsteen sound with hilarious, scary, and sad lyrics

Live they're just insane, and you can't hear the lyrics

Other stuff to find: Jens Lekman! Final Fantasy, the Arcade Fire violinist who based a concepta album on the 8? 9? schools of D&D magic

I saw you on Last.fm! We matched!

Anyone else on that? I'm ChrisBrimstone

Edit: if anyone is really jonesing for some Sydney or Aussie music, the radio station I volunteer at (but don't DJ on) is streaming at fbi.org.au
It plays 50% Aussie and 25% Sydney tracks, plus heaps of general indie stuff

Other that my current french faves (check out my blog for those ramblings) I've been listening to Redbird by Heather Nova, Joydrop and Cyndi Lauper's acoustic album.

And during our vacation, we dug into my old cassette collection and listened to some things I hadn't listened to in ages, and then I wondered why I bought such things. But we rediscovered old Depeche Mode. So they have become the new Erasure in our house these days.

I have heard them on WOXY. I like the song Banging Camp. They did a Lounge act at WOXY last June. It was an all acoustic set and a small interview. It was kinda cool. The Lounge acts are all archived and can be listened to for free.(FYI)

Thanks all of you. I'm making a list right now for my new music shopping spree today.

Has anyone else noticed that "The Flaming Lips" are scheduled to play the Minnesota State Fair? I was kinda shocked! I looked into tickets and nearly bought a pair, but unfortunately finances don't look as though any sort of holiday is in order for a spell yet. THAT would have been fun!

p.s.......Mark Burgess, former Chameleons UK $ Sons of God is doing a short solo USA tour coming up soon. Closest venue for me will be Omaha - same problem, can't go ;( Mark solo isn't the same as the Chams were live (NOTHING BEATS THAT imho), but he puts on a very good show........

a friend of mine convinced me to get Built To Spill - Perfect From Now On. it took me a while to get into it, but once it seeps into your soul, it just latches on!

but I can't listen to it while driving! It's a rather good accompaniment to felting wool. 'cos you have to stand there at the washing machine and make sure it goes through several agitation cycles - it's deadly dull, Out of Site is particularly wonderful to groove to!

Now I need to go listen to BtS again.

And listen to LoN, Jens Lekman is really good. I love his song "Pocketful of Money" and that Calvin Johnson sample.
