At the moment, I am digging Amerie's new album, the metal band Mastadon, the jazz musician Christian Scott, and Herbie Hancock's album of Joni Mitchell covers. Just some seriously good music in different genres.

Ten Years of ATP this weekend for me and I cannot wait. I'm most looking forward to seeing Deerhoof right now but am also excited about Stephen Malkmus, Devendra Banhart, Modest Mouse and a bunch of others. AND just getting away from the city to sit around drinking cider with friends and listening to lots of music.

rudderless, have you ever listened to Trailer Bride? They do a sort of goth country version of an Emily Dickinson poem! Very good stuff.

I can't, as far as I know it only works in the U.K.? Bummertown, as I read about it and it sounds freakin awesome.

I've actually tried to get on some of those sites like hulu with a proxy IP and it didn't work. I think I'm about 8 months or so behind on the technology. It's so damn annoying, cuz I would actually pay to have access to some good online video streaming. The only thing I've found that works here is iTunes, and I use it even with their expensive prices and crappy, limited selection. It's like, somebody invent online movie/TV rentals and please, take my money damnit! Anyway, sorry for the derail.

I'm not telling any certain band, just the kinds of music.
1.- Thrash Metal (Beyond the embrace, Anthrax, Megadeth, ...)
2.- Nu-Metal (Machine Head, Mnemic, ...) (Thrash/Progresive Metal)
3.- Death Metal (Kataklysm, ...)
4.- Heavy Metal (Children of Bodom, ...)

Listen to some of their songs, and start from there.

Oh, I've never actually been to that thread! I'll have to check it out! And I've never tried playlist.com, either, but I used to look for music on radioblog and it was useless - the songs hardly ever streamed properly.

epi -- thank for posting about blip.fm, I've been looking for something like that that works where I am (in Asia), sadly the copyright bozos do not allow pandora, last.fm (or hulu for that matter) to work outside of the U.S., and it's hard to keep hip to non-mainstream music here.

As for what I'm listening to? The new(ish) Air and Raveonettes are both worth rocking out to no matter what side of the world you're on.

i've been listening to the the xx on imeem.com (yay full streaming albums!) and i really like the mellow vibe... it's like a less lame rilo kiley meets portishead.

(side note, i love getting new music rec's off the boards here...)

Anyone heard of blip.fm? It's this awesome online playlist-building site where you register as a "DJ" and add songs to your own personal "radio station." You just look up songs and add them, and they're streamed off the site. They've got a great selection, and you find a ton of new music because you can find other DJs with similar taste and listen to their stations. I haven't been able to add as much new music to mine as I'd like since I moved back to my internet-less apartment, but here's my station.

God, I'd kill to see the Pixies...I would have gone to their show in Seattle this month, but I couldn't get my passport in time. I hope to god I have another chance someday. I saw Dinosaur Jr. a few weeks back and, while the music was great and Lou Barlow's guitar playing was amazing, the show itself was pretty boring. They didn't engage the audience at all, just stood there, played their set and left. They looked exhausted.

MH They're definitely doing some shows in the UK and Europe, I can't imagine they would skip over the US

They are unexpectedly gorgeous. Very low-key, quite melancholic and moody. I was introduced to them by a Young Person so I feared excessive angst, but they skirt free of that whilst remaining atmospheric. I like. Crystalised is the single but I'm fond of the songs I've heard from the album too.

Pants that festival looks amazing. I am surprised to see the Pixies will still be touring, but then again you can't see too much Pixies. I saw them this autumn and they were awesome: played another whole set as a second encore once all the people looking for Doolittle tracks had gone home. smile.gif

I would love to see Hope Sandoval and the XX in particular. Despite being squarely in the middle of their demographic (if they'd admit to having one) I could never chime in with the Pavement love.

At least they waited 10 years wink.gif

I'm okay with the reunite as I never managed to see them before but I get what you mean. I'd be totally fine if they never toured again, but I will definitely enjoy this show.

Of course I said the same thing after seeing the Pixies on their reunion tour in 2004 and here I am planning to see them again so take all that with a grain of salt.

The fact that this fest is in Barcelona does color my thinking a fair bit as well

Now I just need to pray to all available saints and deities that Neko Case will be playing with New Pornographers, not that Kathryn Calder isn't great (she totally is) but I've never seen Neko perform live with them and I would really like to
