Really? Haven't listened to it yet, but the first single was just meh.

And tomorrow  premieres The National new album. Can't wait.

Word, it's a goddamn magnificent rock record to be sure. I really dig how hard Josh has continued to embrace his inner Bowie too. So many of the melodies on this (and Like Clockwork) could've been penned by the Thin White Duke himself.

The only one that's not really floating my boat (after about 15 listens) is Fortress. The rest are some kind of magic.

I'm loving the new album. Somehow managed to forget it was coming out so I'm a little late to the party but really great stuff.

I'm generally well disposed towards The National, but his new stuff will have to wait as I'm experiencing an infatuation with

Jamie Saft these days.

I've heard Everyday of The New Standard Trio on the radio and was very taken with the bass and piano.

His older stuff came as a surprise. In terms of style it's all over the place.

I like his dubby stuff -

Kasha Dub

Vesamcheynu Dub

Slow Down Furry Dub (with Merzbow -no fear this one is not so noisy-)

And I like his sister Vanessa singing  -

Remember

T'Khelet

The Jazzy stuff may seem a bit conventional, but there's a lot going on once let it get to you -

All Things To All People

Been listening to SO much stuff lately dunno why I haven't been posting here but the one I'm most excited about...

GARY NUMAN'S NEW ALBUM ''Savage (Songs from a Broken World)'' which is EXCELLENT!!!! and PLEASE can you ALL give it a listen!!!

It's on Spotify and here's the single ''My Name is Ruin''

Excellent dark industrial synthy concept album (the concept is the world is post global warming disaster and the world is now a giant desert wasteland where east and west cultures have blended together out of survival but everyone is out for themselves)

Yeah, I get bored fairly quickly with a lot of guitar music these days - most of it sounds more like math than magic to me - but QOTSA are the perfect mix of heaviness, sex, weirdness, technical intelligence, heat, dancability, wry humour and adventurousness. They still have the magic. They aren't my only sunshine, but they're one of them.

First track of Gary Numan's new album and I think it sets it all up brilliantly. I love this album and its concept so much.

One of my colleagues was telling me at lunchtime that he was going to see his cousin's band The Big Moon, so I'm randomly listening to some of their songs on Youtube, which do seem pretty good.

The English Beat=Whine & Grind/Stand Down Margaret

I said I see no joy, I see only sorrow

I see no chance for your bright new tomorrow

so stand down Margaret, stand down please, stand down Margaret

You tell me how can it work with your all white law?

What a short, sharp lesson, what a Third World War

Oh stand down Margaret, stand down please

Stand down Margaret
