    Electric Soft Parade - The American Adventure



    Mostly because it comes next in iTunes after Elbow.



    But it's a really nice record!

    REO Speedwagon - Good Trouble - it's every bit as good as Hi-Infidelity!

    "Teardrops on My Guitar (Pop Remix)"- Taylor Swift.



    I don't care.



    This song is catchy.

    I'll give the Portishead a bit more of a chance, but so far I've been underwhelmed.



    I am liking the new Black Dog album - 'Radio Scarecrow'.

    Yeah I agree, this Portishead record is kind of a letdown after the last one. Nothing that really sticks out on first five listens as incredible like "Cowboys"...



    Now listening to MGMT - Oracular Spectacular.



    They sound a lot like the Thrills, but I don't like them as much... and I rarely listen to the Thrills...



    Another one that will go on the back burner.

    "Carolina Drama" -The Raconteurs



    This song will sound awesome live. Not one of their harder rockers, but definitely a lot of attitude.



    Think a darker, piano-less, full-band version of "The Denial Twist."



    Also, characteristic of Jack White, a thesis statement for the band in the lyrics:



    I’m not sure if there’s a point to this story

    But I’m going to tell it again

    So many other people try to tell the tale

    Not one of them knows the end

    One thing about me is that I'm pretty damn near hearing impaired (bisensoneural, not because of too many run-ins with ghettoblasters, although that story would be more fun to tell, if just so I could use the word "ghettoblaster.") Looking through my music library, that seems to be borne out in a whole collection of indie rock, that is, very loud music.



    So yesterday I decided to spend some cash on decent headphones (Bose Triport Around-the-Ear). It's amazing what I can hear now. (Guitar "plucks" make a sound when it strikes the string? What the heck. What are all these other sounds doing in my music?). So, anyway, I'm finding low-key music a lot more interesting than I ever had before. Problem is, I just don't have any! I've had Ryan Adams, Feist, and Iron & Wine on repeat.



    Can anyone recommend any great, low-key "headphones" type albums?



    This "hearing" thing is pretty cool...

    Since no-one seems to have noticed to the thread I started about Muxtape ...



    http://audiopollution.muxtape.com



    It would be great if everyone started their own Muxtape and updated it with what they're currently listening to.
