Listening to Mogwai as I haven't done so for a long time. Truly incredible stuff.

Re: Music: What are you listening to today?

I got The College Dropout a few days ago, at best indirectly because of Kayne West's much made of recent jackassery. Anyway, it's very good; I've been listening to it almost exclusively for the last few days. I can't get Spaceship out of my head; the first two minutes are great. I suppose I'm a bit late to the party though.

This is good advice. My girlfriend and I did just this on Sunday night. She loves Brian Ferry and it was a nice end to a great weekend.

Re: Music: What are you listening to today?

I'm listening to Tim Buckley, because I was watching a Hal Ashby tribute, and it showed Coming Home's last scene where Bruce Dern walks into the ocean. I didn't know that was a Tim Buckley song (Once I Was).

He's got an interesting voice and some strange songs.

Re: Music: What are you listening to today?

I'm listening to a country lady named Gillian Welch. She has good country songs and good lyrics. One More Dollar is a superb song. But I looked her up, and she's a middle/upper class girl from California, singing about poor country folk and affecting an accent.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. It raises difficult questions about country music and authenticity.

Both really good albums. But I need to be happy now, so I'm listening to Gimmie Fiction by Spoon.

Little Walter.

I had never heard of Little Walter until a friend gave me a CD 3 or 4 years ago.
Since then I've listened to him more than anything else. Wonderful stuff.

i heard this song on the radio last night, came home and found it online, and have now listened to it about a dozen times already. it is ecstatic, euphoric pop music.

Re: Music: What are you listening to today?

I'm listening to Nick Drake. I could listen to River Man forever, one of my favorite songs. His sound is a little soft for my taste, in general, but I keep coming back and listening to more. He creates a striking sense of intimacy with his voice and guitar.

There's a good documentary about him on the Instant Netflix that I watched a few months ago.

Pink Moon is amongst my favourite albums of all time. I'm going to have to listen to it now

That's common as rain though. Even a lot of the guys and gals from the south twang it up as much as possible when they sing.

Well, there's twanging it up, and there's living a lie. Loretta and Dolly grew up dirt poor in Tennessee. Merle served time in prison, and Cash picked cotton in Arkansas as a kid. If you're talking about pop country, that's another story. Welch's music is better than that, and she's a talented artist, but country is a little special when it comes to "keeping it real," because of its origin and history.

Re: Music: What are you listening to today?

I'm now listening to the great They Might Be Giants. Their epic album Apollo 18.

Mammal. I Palindrome I. The Statue Got Me High. Dinner Bell. One classic after another.

"So the warm blood flows through the large 4-chambered heart. Maintaining the very high metabolism rate they have. Mammal. Mammal. Their names are called; they raise a paw. The bat. The cat. Dolphin and dog. Koala bear and hog."
