What I’ve been listening to:

  • American Don – Don Caballero’s new most recent album. I like it a lot. It’s a little mellower, eliminating things that prevented me from really digging them in the past. It reminds me of Slint.
  • Still fixated on the new New Pornographers album.
  • I like that Gorillaz song “Feel Good, Inc.” more than I expected, since Gorillaz usually annoys the crap out of me. This in itself is an anomaly, since I like most of their constituent parts (Cibo Matto, Blur, Dan the Automator). I attribute most of my annoyance to Del, who I generally can’t stand, no matter how hard I try.
  • I heard two Bloc Party songs that are sorta okay.
  • Chuck Coleman’s “Brian Played Guitar” is a clever and catchy song.
  • I grabbed a Thievery Corporation album from emusic for the hell of it and for the David Byrne song on it. So far my response is: meh.
  • I’ve been giving Antony and the Johnsons a listen – he’s worked with Rufus Wainwright I guess. It’s not bad, but I am not sure I can get over his voice.

I think that’s it.
