What's burnin' a hole in your CD player / iPod / etc.

Recommended Posts

Here's what's ticklin' my eardrums lately:

 

"Breath" - Breaking Benjamin

" Soul Meets Body" - Death Cab for Cutie

"The Kill" - 30 Seconds to Mars

 

How 'bout you?

Just picked up the new White Stripes CD, but haven't opened it yet. Probably the first music I've bought in what seems like a year.

My brother married a young lady from Chicagoland. She has twin brothers that lead a band called "Medina Lake". They are opening on a world tour for "The Killers". They also won an episode of "Fear Factor: Twins Version". I now need to listen to their debut CD, daily.

It's not music, but in some ways it's even better - Bill Bryson's "A History of Almost Everything" a 6-CD set. The author details the history of science from the beginning of time until now. It is like crack to me - can't stop listening. Never boring, flows from one fascinating topic to another. It was a Father's Day gift, and already one of my all-time favorites.

Picked up 4 CDs last week:

 

Queens of the Stone Age Era Vulgaris

 

The White Stripes Icky Thump

 

Peter, Bjorn and John Writer's Block

 

The New Pornographers Electric Version

 

I haven't given an intense listen to any of them really, but so far as background type stuff none of them suck. PBJ has stands out the most so far - terrific, Beatles-esque pop - you may have heard their "Young Folks" on the radio (it has that insanely catchy whistling hook)

The White Stripes' Icky Thump. Damn fine work. Song 10 (*don't have the CD in front of me) is the best piece of sludge this side of Sons of Otis

 

Nick Cave's new band, Grinderman. Takes a few listens but it is growing on me.

 

Apples in Stereo New Magnetic Wonder. Always a sucker for indie pop

 

And Chavez, love that Peter Bjorn and John CD

Track 10 is "I'm Slowly Turning Into You"; I like "St Andrew" but I'm a sucker for the pipes.

 

On early returns, I still think of the 4 albums they've released since breaking out (White Blood Cells on), WBC is still the tops, and I may be the only person in the world who thinks Get Behind Me Satan is a fantastic bit of rock, close behind WBC. I slot Icky Thump ahead of Elephant but don't think it will beat out GBMS in my book.

Hows that QOTSA album Chavez?

 

I am currently still addicted to Placebo - "Meds". I love just about every song on it and it is the soundtrack of my life and times right now. Pretty depressing. I think when I'm done with this album, I wont want to listen to it anymore.

Haven't given it a thorough listen yet - more varied than Lullabyes to Paralyze, at least. I'm going to have it cranking while I'm running errands today, I'll report back.

A mix of late 70s / early 80s punk I burned from vinyl. Stiff Little Fingers, Penetration, The Fall, etc, etc.

I don't think Thump's better than GBMS either

Cool, let me know. I loved them when they came out with "Rated R" but havent bought an album since "Songs for the Deaf". Isnt Josh Del Homme the only original member left? I could sense them going downhill when they lost Nick Oliveri. He was the best songwriter in the band and it shows in thier single faceted releases since his departure.

Actually, QotSA was generally always just Homme and Oliveri.

 

Much as I like Oliveri's bursts of energy, the bulk of the heavy lifting on the albums was done by Homme - it looks like the current members are Joey Castillo (drummer since the SftD tour), Troy Van Leeuwen (who may or may not have played on SftD, but toured with them after it and was on Lullabyes), and Homme. The slightly different flavor to the new one means, to me, that they are part of the songwriting process, which is important - otherwise just retire the Queens name and release stuff as Josh Homme, y'know?

awesome music, particularly op. 131 & 132. the long middle movement of op. 132 is one of the most emotionally profound pieces of music i've come across. which recording are you listening to?
