Ringo Death Star. Quality shoegazing from Texas again. Seems to be a bit of a scene there at the moment cf. True Widow - can't beleive this band slipped by without me noticing last year. They're a bit commercial but I do like the sound. It's a good sound.

The new Graham Coxon album is really good. He's quite consistent the old ex-Blur guitarist, seems to always deliver the goods. Saw him and his band supporting the Pixies at Brixton in 2004 completely unaware that he used to be the guitarist in Blur, I thought Graham Coxon was the name of the band. This was around the time of Franz Ferdinand so calling you band name an actual person's name was the latest fad. I thought he was great live, but you never really care much at the time who the support band is when the main act is a band you really want to see and have waited a long time.

Really like the new Hummingville album, kind of nu-jazz. Quite original and interesting.

Favourite tracks are Ithaca and A Gentleman's Tale, both have a sound like I've never heard before, really good stuff >3voor12

Just listening to some of the remixes on the Dig For Fire tribute album, some really great versions on there, kind of makes me realise again just how timeless and classic these songs are.

lately i've been going back to The Village Green Preservation Society. it keeps ending up in the cd player (you read that correctly). "all of my friends were there" is stuck in my head for days now.

New album from Lissy Trullie is pretty good. This is a remix of Madeleine, can't find the original version on Youtube but it's a top song anyway. I know where you sleep is also one of my favourites on the album but can't find anything for that either- Spotify it.

Also the new Lower Dens album is pretty interesting, in particular the track Lion in Winter pt 2.

work that involves sensitive personal info being close at hand (social security numbers, maybe a credit card number). most portable music devices have cameras these days (though mine doesn't) so they banned portable music devices.

rocking the cd player.

Been listening to AYEKO all day, man it's pumping them tunes out today. Great inspiration for my electric daisy carnival t-shirt design.

Hey vilainde, I once worked in a place where you couldn't listen to music while you worked, even though it didn't affect the work you were doing. They did when I started then one day the boss came over and told us that his boss had decided that due to health & safety laws that we were no longer allowed to listen to our iPods while we worked. I carried on listening to mine, and then when the boss came over and reminded me that I was no longer allowed I told him that I work with my iPod or I leave, and so that was my last ever shift there. Regretted it the next day, but the day after that I walked into a job with three times as much money and I was allowed to listen to my iPod. Don't take no shit for your employer is my advice.

Calling all Portishead fans!

Just found this new album from Geoff barrow of Portishead, sounds a bit mental, experimental electronica, it's up here-

http://3voor12.vpro.nl/luisterpaal/albums.html

It's an imaginary film score apparently, sounds great, weird as fuck. I think they should actually make the film, sounds like really old sci fi music

Maybe not new music but music I've been listening to recently; Steve Earle (new & old stuff alike, Transcendental Blues album a highlight, "Steves Last Ramble" my personal choice).

Warren Zevon "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner" and "Excitable Boy" have been getting a lot of listens, and of course "Werewolves of London"

I watched The Guard recently and the soundtrack is done by Calexico, so have been revisiting Feast of Wire and Hot Rail albums. Their music is used to great effect in several landscaping scenes in Breaking Bad. Makes me want FB/BF to get that Mariachi band straight away!

still rocking the Kinks (though not as incessantly). "arthur" is really hitting me right now. great album. looking at this string of albums makes my want to shit on the beatles and make the stones stand in the corner for 20 minutes:

face to face
something else by the kinks
village green preservation society
arthur
lola v powerman and the moneygoround
muswell hillbillies
everybody's in show-biz

Just discovered a guy who goes by moniker The Tallest Man on Earth. His new album, "There's No Leaving Now," is really good.

I'm also enjoying Langhorne Slim's new album, "The Way We Move." He's the real deal.

Neither of the last two Future of the left albums left a lasting impression with me, but I love the last Mclusky album, for me it's their best.

I like the new Fiona Apple album. Who is Fiona Apple, you might say? I didn't know either until her new album came up on 3voor12. I've known about her for a long time but never heard any of her music, not that I can remember. Anyway I really like her singing style, she like Laura Marling but older and more interesting. Reminds me also of Florence and the wank machine and Shakira neither of whom I like much, but if you get into the album, great voice and interesting song structures. Like Tori Amos on catnip

Check out her vocals in this, track 2

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEiqLXqwTXo

Great album cover as well.

Is anyone here brave enough/stupid enough/old enough to admit buying the new Beach Boys album?

I recently got the 'Smile' re-issue and though not really my thing it way exceeded my expectations. Also read an interview with Brian Wilson, really sad, what a waste of talent. The guy wrote 20 albums worth of music before his 21st birthday - incredible. Oh, and from the same interview, Mike Love comes across as a bit of cunt.

Just done a three Fiona Appla albums hat trick. Now on the 4th. I think I'm in love with her voice. Whoever is writing the songs is very good at it + she has a really interesting and diverse array of vocal talents. She can sing everything! Reminds me of a lot other female nu-jazz singers. Unfortunately also she sounds a bit like Shakira sometimes as well, but if you can get over that all over her albums are well worth a listen. She can warble and sing with soul, but also gets rocky and has a really distinguished scrapy a bit out of key style as well which is my favourite, although sparse throughout her recordings. Some of her soul/jazz numbers make the hairs stick out. And she's sexy.
