I'm listening to Against Me! I saw these guys a week ago. They were so much fun, all the hype about them really is justified. A room full of people shouting in unison at the top of their voice about how they can change the world...

I also went on a CD buying spree last week, and I bought...
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation I used to be, for some reason, under the impression that sonic youth were rubbish, I was wrong
The Flaming Lips - Soft Bulletin I really like this, but I think I prefer yoshimi, perhaps cause it's about robots
Anticon Label Sampler i was in the mood for hip hop, so I bought this, it's allright, not really my kinda thing though, I really like this song
DJ Shadow - endtroducing Fun, but I find, like most primarily instrumental music, I get bored after a while.
The undertones greatest Hits I wanna hold you, wanna hold you tight, get teenage kicks right through the night
Joe Strummer and the Mesclereos - Global a Go Go I was dissapointed, I found this kinda boring actually.
Grandaddy - The sophtware slump This is good

Is this a new album? I've been listening to Grandaddy's Sumday for a while.

And I also brushed the dust off this 1996 album that I really really like:

Kula Shaker - K

Nah, it's like 1999 or something, I think. It's good.

Currently listening to: Aimee Mann's underrated Lost in Space.

[edit: I just added an MP3 of her cover of Coldplay's The Scientist to my site, taken from disc 2 of the Limited Edition release of Lost in Space.]

Electric Six - Improper Dancing

The entire album ("Fire") is just one big hard-rockin' dance fest. And seriously, how can you beat the music video to "Gay Bar": a bunch of guys dressed up as Abraham Lincoln in workout leotards on exercise equipment. I can guarantee you that's one sentence I never thought I'd end up typing.
The Internet is for Porn.

The Von Bondies - C'mon C'mon

It's truly great what accidents can surface in Google when searching for completely unrelated subjects!

I don't know why, but I just felt the need to break out some of my old big beat records the past couple of days. Stuff that's piled up by my CD player:

Junkie XL - Saturday Teenage Kick and Big Sounds of the Drags
The Chemical Brothers - Exit Planet Dust and Dig Your Own Hole
The Prodigy - Music for the Jilted Generation and The Fat of the Land
The Crystal Method - Vegas
Fatboy Slim - You've Come a Long Way, Baby
Propellerheads - decksandrumsandrockandroll
Lunatic Calm - Metropol
Fluke - Risotto

Yeah, I know they're all pretty much the 'mainstream' big beat kids, but I don't care. They all just bring back so many summery memories for me. *sniffle*

Whew...I'm SAVED!

I've been humming that dang tune from the OnStar commercial for WEEKS. (It's the one where the van pulls out and is immediately followed by a long train of emergency vehicles)

It kind of sounded like old-school Apples in Stereo, but not....I couldn't figure out who did it....

BUT I FOUND IT!!!

It's PAS/CAL's "The Bronzed Beached Boys".
I've heard of PAS/CAL, but never heard any of their music before now.

Thank god they had the MP3 on their site....I was going crazy!

I'll definitely check out their other stuff!

Oh....just found out I totally missed out on local Pixies tickets....I waited too long. Crap.

And since someone asked about good ways of finding great, new music, check out KEXP

Joel -

Don't feel bad. After Kean hipped us (The us who didn't know) to Iron and Wine, I found out I missed a free show, well almost free, at a local bar studio. I'm pissed about it, but I hope they come back because the next show I believe is either in Orlando near you or in Tampa.
I would love to see the show, but Orlando :?:...
don't know about that since I never drove up there to see the Billy & his Pumpkins or Zwan.
Or s#!t :!:, anyone I love for that matter.

Apparently according to my sister I'm late to the game for a third time. First time was with Gorillaz. Thanx Sis.
Second time was with Iron & Wine. Thanx Kean.

I've caught up and chilling with some:
Modest Mouse
The Postal Service

I think I better get cable and catch the new generation's 90210
aka: The O.C.
lol.

I have others to catch up on that are on my Indie list, but I'll speak about those when I grab me some.
