One album I can't put away for very long is "We Are Eyes, We Are Builders" by Soviet. They don't like to be called electroclash, but let's be honest here. Still, they write infectiously good, sit-in-your-stomach-and-carry-you-through-the-day songs, and it's hard to beat the unabashadly artificial guitar solo on "Soviet Bot."

I've been going through a bit of The Cure and Joy Division, but primarily I've been spinning Meat Beat Manifesto's latest, At the Center - very jazzy! I get to see him live this Friday, too!
Other than that, a bit of Zao, Starflyer 59, some old Smashing Pumpkins, and Massive Attack.

Ohhhh man, so much good music out there right now. I've been on pace for about one new album (for me, anyway) every day or so for the past week and a half now, and they've all been so spectacularly good! Currently:

The Boy Least Likely To - The Best Party Ever: first heard this puppy in New York and wrote it off as being alarmingly twee, but I got seriously hooked on the second listen.
Flotation Toy Warning - Bluffer's Guide to the Flight Deck: I wonder if the band is trying too hard to be tongue-in-cheek/pretentious with a band name like that, but I do like their songs.
The Airfields - City-State EP: a nice little local band, some really pretty tunes.
The Constantines - Shine A Light: yeah, yeah, I know. I'm trying to keep up with the Canadian kids.
Dizzee Rascal - Showtime: had been avoiding this one because of all the hype, but it's certainly warranted... the kids certainly do loves their grime.
Velocity Girl - Simpatico!: yeah, I know it's kind of an oldie, but it's definitely a new one for me.
Wolf Parade - untitled 3rd EP: have I mentioned lately how much I love Wolf Parade? They're really fucking great.

Various Artists - The Believer June 2005 Music Issue CD
: basically a who's who of the indie scene; The Decemberists, Spoon, The Mountain Goats, Jim Guthrie, Devendra Banhart, Wolf Parade, the list goes on and on.

Oh snap! Geeky? I dunno, I just grabbed the "Departure" and "Masta" Champloo Soundtracks, and they're bloody brilliant. I would recommend it to anyone with even a passing interest in that whole downtempo/hip-hop sort of thing.

Right now, I'm listening to a lot of The Bravery, Bloc Party and the notwist.

Every now and then, I also mix in some Mulan soundtrack, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers and Metal Gear Solid stuff. I'm not even kidding. :D

"Ting A Ling A Loo" by Benny Hill. Classic.

Been listening to lots of nick cave and the bad seeds and jeff buckley.
Now I'm listening to the "Self Made Maniac" album by China Drum. Really cool defunct kind of pop-punk band.
Their cover of Wuthering Hieghts is great!
