Whatcha Listening To? Thread v4

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Paraphrasing Defiant:

Well, the old one is dead, may he rest in peace at page 23.

Time for a new one.

Currently I'm listening to:

1. Keane: Hopes and Fears

Catchy Pop kind of like Coldplay without guitars. Great melodies.

2. Faithless: No Roots

Best Faithless record ever (and it's hard to top "Reverence"). Mass Destruction is one of my favorite tracks of the year. A new raggadub influence added to their sound. The Dido tracks are weak, though.

3. Franz Ferdinand: Franz Ferdinand

This will endure as a classic record and FF are bound to be bigger than hats.

4. The Streets: A Grand Don't Come For Free

Even better than OSM. I'll probably tire of it, though.

5. Morrissey: You Are The Quarry

Best thing out of Moz's mind and mouth in at least a decade. But still not as good as the Smiths.

    Wheat "Per second, per second, per second...every second". This is probably old hat because I think it was released last year but I'm besotted with it. Alternative pop. Catchy. Great harmonies.

    On a bit of a harmony thing at the moment, so have been taking regular walks down memory lane with the Mamas and the Papas.

    Latest Joni Mitchell and Kasey Chambers.

    "The Cat's Meow" soundtrack.

    And will be getting The Dissociatives (Paul Mac and Daniel Johns) album if and when I ever get near a decent record store again, purely on the basis of having loved "3000 Feet High" so much.

    From the <a href="http://www.musicwhore.org/reviews/review.php?albumID=631" target="_blank">Highvision</a> release. They are a japanese indie/electronic band. Damn imports are so freakin' expensive though. <img src="/images/smilies/irked.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Grumble" class="inlineimg" /><br />

    Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out

    I'm totally digging this record. Hey Anders, what Sonic Youth you listening to? I've been re-digging Washing Machine a lot lately.

    The Dismemberment Plan - Shag

    Who are these guys? I don't even know where I got this song, but any song with a chorus of, "push the little baby down the spiral stairs" is ok by me.
