I have loved Cocteau Twins and DCD for years. In fact, I was just thinking about DCD yesterday and how I should write myself a note so I remember to download some, since my stinkin ex-husband took more than 2/3s of our immense cd collection so I don;t have them anymore. Frown

This one sounds intriguing... I might need to look that up.

I really like "Eye of the Hunter". It's a lot folksier and more restrained than DCD, but it's pretty good.

I'm on a major hip-hop trip at the moment. I've had Deltron 3030, Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor, and Doctor Octagon among others (ala Nas's Illmatic) on constant rotation.

Of course, since I've gotten into this mood of mine the only other music I can listen to is stuff like Belle & Sebastian and the Shins.

I go from one extreme to the other.

I am going to Austin City Limits this year and it is going to be amazing, please. I'm really liking the band list they have. So much good music. Some better than others.

Recently, I have been playing the heck out of a live version of Jennifer Lopez by Xiu Xiu. It's just Jamie and Panda, so instead of the cello and twitchy drum beat, they use a massive rave bass line and some rather pounding drums ... with a Harmonium.

The other song I've had on repeat a lot is called Mad Skillz by TWELVE. A friend from another forum gave me a link to this mix tape about 18 months ago, and I completely lost all the tracks in my iTunes library. I wish I had the track listing, because I keep stumbling across the tracks and they're all solid gold. This one is really creepy Hip-Hop, sounds a bit like DJ Shadow doing Dubstep.

Lastly, today I was tidying up my flat to Joy Division and Kate Bush. I was quite pleased with the Kate Bush. My first flatmate had a copy of Hounds Of Love he'd stolen from his Mums record collection. It sounded amazing. When we went our separate ways, I bought the remastered CD version and it just made the album sound really crap and 80's. About 2 weeks ago I came across Hounds Of Love on record in a charity shop, and so did my bit and treated myself to the original Vinyl version. It sounds incredible, even on my crappy little speakers!

Listening to the new Depeche Mode, Sounds of the Universe. My best description after one listen through is Music for the Masses meets Ultra. Not sure how I feel about it yet.

Passed on any new Gogol for now, instead got a second album from a DJ called Daedelus (I really enjoyed Invention and just picked up Of Snowdonia) and in honor of The Fourth, I got Springsteen's We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions. Sounded like fun stuff.

That Springsteen record is great, JP. I don't even really like Springsteen all that much, but that one is really good.

The Seeger Sessions album was one of the best things, Springsteen or otherwise, I've heard in ages.

If it wasn't on a Sony label, I'd have bought two copies, one for me and one for my mom.

Bought tickets to see VNV Nation on July 30.

I know, I know, it's just a fancy karaoke show. But, I love Ronin's voice and they seem like cool guys. And I dig the Marquee theater in Phoenix, it's a nice venue.

Missed The Rev on Friday night, the Mr. had to work and I didn't want to drive to Tucson, get tired, and have to drive 90 minutes home alone. We saw them...two years ago and they were awesome so if you get the chance *go see the Rev*.

I don't usually like reggae, but I'm really into a guy called Matisyahu right now. It's excellent, chilled-out stuff. I've been listening to "Shake off the Dust... Arise", can't comment on his other stuff. Yet.

Alas, emusic doesn't have Arise (his first) but do have two subsequent releases ... am pondering.

That's about exactly where I'm at. Deltron 3030, Black Star, Talib Kweli, and Common are getting a lot of listening done on my ears right now. It's nice to find hip-hop with actually decent lyrics.

Hello opeth. Smile

I have a co worker that is really into Opeth (the band not you) Smile

St.CountZero is also a big fan, I believe.

I have been given some of their stuff. I have not really given it a good hard listen yet. I am not big into metal. I like the music, but I can't get into the vocals too much. I was surprised as to all the genres of metal. My co worker was giving me the rundown, and I am impressed with the facets and the history of it all.

Lately, besides just listening to the new Wussy cd to death, I have been listening to a lot of 30s, 40s and 50s music. I am putting together a playlist for my wife's parents 50th wedding anniversary.
