I'm listening to Junior Boys - So This Is Goodbye at the minute. This morning I was listening to Tegan and Sara (Walking With A Ghost is a great song). Over the last week I have been listening to amongst others; M83, Patrick Wolf, Fields, Toyko Police Club, LCD Soundsystem, Radiohead, Emily Haines and Regina Spektor.
On the USB drive I brought into work today:
Au Revior Simon, Augie March, MC Frontalot, Fountains Of Wayne, Optimus Rhyme, Osymyso, LCD Soundsystem, The Scala Choir, Trivium, Uffie and a couple of episodes of Coverville.

Pitchfork has slated the new Fountains of Wayne album. I must say I enjoyed the first half of Welcome Interstate Managers but the second half went all country and crap.
[quote:b25d035c1f="Orzo"]After a few listens I've really started to get into the new Patrick Wolf album - it's quite different from his previous stuff in a lot of respects and 'Bluebells' is a great song.
Not sure what he was doing on the Charlotte Church show....[/quote:b25d035c1f]
Ordered it 2 weeks ago from Virgin, still have yet to receive it, their customer care representatives tend not to reply to emails. Listening to Wind In The Wires quite a bit, Tristan is superb. I'm not sure what the fvck he was doing on there, but I guess it prob had more to do with his label than him. Think hes signed to a major now.
The Kings of Leon's new album is on high rotation aswell. McFearless and Charmer are impressive.
I was one of very few people that answered a question about Regina Spektor on Alan Simpson's afternoon show on Radio Ulster (I was desperate, ok?). Although I answered the question incorrectly, there were so few participating that I won her new CD Begin to Hope.
Which I am listening to nowadays:
Regina Spektor - Begin to Hope
For those familiar with her album Soviet Kitsch, this is quite different. A bit more pop-ish, but still the same innovative writing and voice.
[i:7688b61698][b:7688b61698]Ween - "It's Gonna Be a Long Night"
[/b:7688b61698][/i:7688b61698]Perfect song for getting ready to hit your local rock club. The song Motorhead should've wrote first, but didn't.
[i:7688b61698][b:7688b61698]Imogen Heap - "Hide and Seek"[/b:7688b61698][/i:7688b61698]
For when you get home from the aforementioned Long Night and you want to try and trick your brain into believing it's never going to happen again.
