The album will only be available for six weeks (the length of their tour with Jens Lekman), after which it'll be taken down.

Grab the album here.
I'm currently trying to figure out what I would do, without you to point me towards awesome music. Between this, your site, and OTHER musicblogs that you link to, I'll never go unhappy....it's...it's just so beautiful *sniff*...

If you guys liked that album, you should maybe think about buying The Impossible Shapes' studio LP, Horus, which hits stores Feb. 1 (and will be available on CDs, or so I am told!). [edit]: sample two tracks from Horus, including the excellent "Survival."

Also, has anyone heard the latest Iron and Wine song, "Trapeze Swinger?" I have been putting off buying it from iTunes, but I hear it is totally worth the 99 cents.

Soul Coughing: "Circles"-sorry, I never heard it on the radio, and it's catchy.
Built to Spill: "Ancient Melodies of the Future" and "There's Nothing Wrong with Love," and the mp3 from amazon by them ""Still Flat"
and My Bloody Valentine: Loveless. It grows on you. :)

...can't... listen... fast... enough... too much new music... how the hell do all those music bloggers do it?

Listening to yet another new track from Bright Eyes' forthcoming I'm Wide Awake It's Morning, via Stereogum.

Also: stream the upcoming albums of Ani DiFranco's Knuckle Down and The Chemical Brothers' Push The Button.

[edit]: Gah, it was obviously a late night. Fixed all the linky-poos.

I recommend The Concretes, it's a very listenable album...like a popier more upbeat Azure Ray. Also, Nada Surf's Let Go is getting heavy rotation for me, even though it's an older album (2002). The song "Inside of Love" is a killer, but pretty much the entire album is solid

The .99 is worth all nine and a half minutes of it. I wasn't an Iron and Wine fan before seeing "In Good Company," but was quickly converted during the course of the film. I immediately acquired Creek Drank... and Our Endless Numbered Days, not to mention his iTunes exclusives. I can't wait for the new ep in February. It is a little odd to hear ol' Sam B. say "F--k the man" midway through the song. A lot of his work seems to have a spiritual bent. Anyone know any specifics on Sam's faith?

Also, just got Sufjan Stevens "Michigan" but haven't spent much time with it.

What I am listening to now:

Some musics from lucasarts games (Grim Fandango mostly)
Some minibosses music, which is NES game music done with rock instruments.
Some other miscellaneous junk.

Maybe I should get more classy music so that I can look all smart and impressive when I tell people I listen to orchestras and arias and symphonies and stuff, so they think I'm a genius scientician who knows languages and trades silks and spices.
It follows the continuity of the third Ziganokum movie. It stars Shrub Mikanore as Ziganokum and Bizzorum. With Johothin Griggor as Nebulox.

I gotta ask Kean where he gets his music info. I mean, I do my best to keep up on the indie music scene, but Kean and a few other people around here make me look like I know nothing. Where can I go to keep up like you guys (besides frequenting this forum, which is where I come now)?
also, thanks for all your info here. Those Arcade Fire tracks from KCRW are awesome.
