The Fratellis, a Glasgow band who sound a bit like Arctic Monkeys meet Franz Ferdinand, have a really good sound and I'm loving Nerina Pallot's album Fires, she reminds me of Jewel.

My guy and I have a lot of vinyl, and we just moved, and we're throwing a party.

SOOO the vinyl was all in a hodge-podge. Higgledy-Piggledy. Helter Skelte..... oh, you get the idea. So I was separating and alphabetizing, pulling out the funnest stuff I could find and it's:

Aerosmith Toys in the Attic and Get Your Wings
Alice Cooper Killer
Avengers
Bowie -- Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Space Oddity, Low
Black Flag -- Damaged
B-52s -- the red one, the yellow one, and the blue one.
Doors first album
DMZ-- Monoman from Lyres first band.
Iggy -- Funhouse, Raw Power, the Idiot, Rubber Legs
Gang of Four -- That's Entertainment!
Jimi Hendrix -- are you experienced? Axis Bold as Love
Magazine -- Correct Use of Soap
Pere Ubu -- Art of Walking, Modern Dance, We have the Technology
Jonathan Richman -- the Modern Lovers (with "Roadrunner" "Modern World" and "She Cracked") and the other one, with "New England" and "Lonely Financial Zone")
Roxy Music -- the first one, For Your Pleasure, Country Life, Stranded, and Siren -- with "Both Ends Burning" and "Just Another High" on it
Velvet Underground -- Banana Album, the two disk live in Texas compilation with the woman in th blue skirt on it, and Lou Reed's "Berlin"
X -- Los Angeles and Wild Gift
Zulus - The Zulus

Good times...

Ah, Stereolab. Saw them years back with Sonic Youth. Awesome stuff.
Been getting back into Scissor Sisters and Leonard Cohen lately.

I'm absolutely in love with Stereolab. I have their debut album, "Switched on" in my car cd player right now. Lately, I bought a D.J. Spooky cd called Dubtometry that is very cool. I've been getting into Laurie Anderson. I just bought her debut album. She amazes me. I know I'm 2 decades too late, but she really was a pioneer for a lot of Avante Garde artists today.

Love Mazzy Star and Conceatu Twins. Also, Beth Orton reminds me of Mazzy Star a little. I need to find a copy of some of their albums again. Been listening a lot to Magnetic Fields, and Pet Shop Boys have a new one out that is really good. There's a great song-- I'm with Stupid--that totally describes my last relationship. Something tells me that Neil was going through a breakup.

Been looking forward to buying an Ipod. I just found out that we get a discount at work. smile.gif

Raconters are coming in Oct! I wanted to catch The Fray, but the tickets sold out in nanoseconds! Boo....

I've been taking advantage of iTunes lately-they give recommendations of other music based on other people's purchases, and also a 30 second clip of all the songs so you know if you'll actually like it.

I discovered a musician called Bibio, who makes gorgeous, complex instrumental music-there really is no genre for it, but it brings up a wealth of emotion and insipiration when I hear it.

And I've also gotten back in touch with muscians that I've always liked, but never got around to buying a full album-like Mazzy Star-her music was so so so beautiful, and her voice is just magic. Some of my favorite songs of hers are Free, Into Dust, Roseblood, Hallah, Ghost on a Highway, and Taste of Blood. Some of her music sounds almost like Patsy Cline-it has that dreamy, vintage-country music sound to it, but more ambient.

If anyone likes Siouxsie and the Banshees, you must hear Faith and the Muse. I've been listening to them for a long time, but I finally got to hear a couple more albums of theirs, and they only get better. They are a Scottish band, but a lot of their music has celtic influence, and it is mostly really beautiful, dark/gothy music. It ranges from industrial/electronic, to celtic folk music, but most of it is not categorizable. The lead singer has such a stunning voice-similar to Siouxsie's, but even more striking, full, and accented. I think she has one of the most gorgeous voices in music, ever.

And I have to mention Cocteau Twins-I didn't discover them on iTunes, but if you have not heard them, then for your own good, please check them out! They are no longer together, but they were around in the 80's and 90's. They are also a lot like Siouxsie, but I can't really categorize them, other then a very thick, sometimes heavy and grinding, sometimes light as a feather, ambient sound, and another amazing female vocalist (Elizabeth Fraser). Since the band broke up, she has done some guest vocalist work for other musicians. She sang on the Massive Attack song 'Teardrop'. The other major part of that band was the musician Robin Guthrie, who created the amazing music to accompany her vocals. He now does very cool solo 'ambient' music that is reminiscent of Cocteau Twins. I love pretty much all of their albums, but "Heaven or Las Vegas" is my least favorite. Treasure is still my favorite, and the others are all just as fabulous.

Ha, I wish I could write much better music reviews, because these musicians deserve much better descriptions, but all I can say is go listen! I won't let you down!

The very best of Nina Simone is currently on loop on my ipod.

Looking forward to the new Scissor Sisters and The Killers's albums out next month and one after, respectively.

hello- I am in chitown, I heard about konono no.1 on NPR and rushed out to the store to get some of their music, it is fantastic.

I just saw the Refugee All Stars of Sierra Leone at a festival and they were great too. I am debating about Lollapalooza which is coming for the second time to Chicago. I went last year and Billy Idol rocked my world. As did the Pixies.

About French hip-hop the only guy I know of is MC Solaar who was on one of GURU's ( the cat from Gang Starr) Jazzmataz albums, the first one actually. I know he has a solo cd but it is already ten years old . I would also suggest Les Nubians technically they are not hip hop more soul but French and great music.

Oh. My. Cod.
Wolfmother is playing here in September, 4 days before the Raconteurs.
(smiles dreamily, in musical nirvana)

BTW, I got XM in my car & it's the shit! I'm finally getting to hear the bands you Busties talk about (regular radio in this town sucks) AND it makes sitting in traffic almost tolerable, if that's possible. biggrin.gif

Now, if I could see Arcade Fire & My Morning Jacket, all would be perfect, musically speaking.

I am really into the Bravery, which is wierd b/c I don't usually get into pop-like music. But they are really addictive!

Does anyone like the Detroit Cobras? I just listened to Mink Rat or Rabbit--forgot what a great album that is.
