I've put a little rack next to the CD player in which I stick all the stuff that's "best right now" in my CD collection, some of the stuff is just CDs I've not had a proper chance to listen to or some of it is stuff that I've been working on. I'll exclude the latter ones from the list.

1. Charles Mingus: Mingus Ah Um
2. Rough Trade Counter Culture 2003
3. Elliot Smith: Figure 8
4. Neil Young: After the gold rush
5. Television: Marquee moon
6. Lapko: Stacy (A great Finnish indie band)
7. The Cure: Faith
8. Joni Mitchell: Hits (The only "best of" here...)
9. Miles Davis: ESP
10. The Cure: Wish
11. Little feat: Dixie Chicken
12. Beach Boys: Good vibrations
13. David Bowie: Scary monsters
14. Wilco: Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
15. The Ark: We are the Ark
16. Morrissey: Vauxhall and I
17. Interpol: Turn on the bright lights

Also around the CD player:

Cul de sac: Crashes to light, Califone: Quicksand/Cradlesnakes, Curtis Mayfield: Superfly, Deus: The ideal crash, Gene: Drawn to the deep end, Sergio: See far and fall (another Finnish thing...), Viola: Tearcandy (...and another one), Devendra Banhart: Rejoicing in the hands, Sonic Youth: Dirty. etc. etc.

Looking forward hearing the new Morrissey, also some good local indie coming up here. Mummypowder and Mother Goose to name two.

I'm going back in time too...

Jon Wayne- Texas Funeral

It's one of the most hilarious albums out there. A must have for engineers and producers. Go to Amazon.com to find and read reviews.

Mister Engineer...Faders up.
That is some funny shit.

Fibes,have you heard the Country Rockers from Memphis? Kinda the same vein as Jon Wayne but with a old school rockabilly slant...plus Ringo the Drummer was like 80 something during their heyday(I think he's passed on to the great kit in the sky by now though).

Fibes,
The Country Rockers pretty much predated the net but I'll sniff around and see what I can find.

The Sound - like Joy Division but cool cause ya missed it the first time round

Gene Clark - No Other - makes alt country redundant 25 years early

Sparks - Kimono my House - Like Queen and ABBA going to the Opera

Wire - 154 - You know how hip hop has classic breaks from old soul records? Well this is the indie kids version.

Sismundi - Zoesch demos - oh the pain.

Still listening to Broken Social Scene and various Smiths records.

Really digging Joanna Newsom's Drag City Debut - "The Milk Eyed Mender" She's a harpist with this strange little girl voice that writes great lyrics and wonderfully oblong melodies. Would love to record a harpist sometime, Noah Georgeson does a simple, tastful production job.

Loving Jim O'Rourke's guitar tones on the advance copy I procured of Wilco's new one, "A Ghost is Born." Jim's own "Eureka" will always hold a place in my heart as well.

Karen Dalton has become a staple for me lately as well...what a voice, it sounds like frozen cigarette smoke pushed slowly through a jello mold. Also a talent for phrasing that it is beyond perfection. Only Ella compares.

Andrew Bird's "Weather Systems." Former violinist for Squirrel Nut Zippers makes beautiful, mournful pop record with Mark Nevers. Very dynamic, no multiband compresser mastering here. Who knew a violin virtuoso could whistle like that?

Self - "Breakfast with Girls": One of the squeaky-cleanest, sugary-sweetest, most gloriously overproduced messes of undeniable pure-pop genius I could ever hope to hear. I return to this one from time to time and am always blown away by something new. Released on Dreamworks in 1999 and currently out of print but by no means rare. Used copies and cutouts can be had for under $10. Pick it up.

The new Destroyer record, "Your Blues" is weird and amazing. The entire record is pretty much various Kurzweils, handclaps and nylon strung acoustic guitar accompanying several instances of Dan Bejar's voice. The first line of the record is "O notorious lightning, yes I had to ride you, and trash the crystal jets they kept in storage inside you." Need I say more?

Echo & the Bunnymen - "Evergreen": so much better than Coldplay.

Hey,

I've been going through an insatiable appetite for new (or atleast new to me) music recently, as well as some of my fav's i haven't listened to in awhile. This is what i've been diggin' on recently, how 'bout you?

Pavement - Slanted & Enchanted (luxe & redux version)- Classic.
Saturday Looks Good To Me - All Your Summer Songs (lo fi 60's era pop)
Sufjan Stevens - Michigan, The Great Lakes State (a beautiful record about my home state - great DIY recording too!)
The New Pornographers - Electric Version (great songs & performances)
Franz Ferdinand - Franz Ferdinand (new wave art punk for 2004)

anyways, i'm interested to see what y'all are listening to. Also, glad to see the new (and faster!) rec pit finally!



Hi,
lately I've switched my attention to more acustical music. More of a songwriter thing instead of the usual "rock" stuff.
