Any Brits out there who listen to Corrine Bailey Rae? She's sort of developing a fanbase over here in the States right now.

I love her voice, but I'm not totally sure I'm feeling the music.

My mates flatmatw when he was at leeds Uni produced her demo, she was at a hous eparty I was at once, I don't really care for the music, but the demo was a more funky sound and her voiced was really good with it.

saw her on SNL this weekend.
i like her style. its like a coy, yet confident kind of sexuality.
really hot, very sexy.
that being said, id never buy the record.
but i would love to bang the shit out of her thats for sure.
i may not be into the record, but if she were singing like that to me, there would be many, many babies.

Elliott Smith - "Alameda"

I've been struggling with a way to articulate this, but there's almost a sinister vibe, I think, to some of Elliott Smith's songs. Especially the ones where he talks about himself from a second-person perspective. It's that taunting tone, the way he callously mocks himself despite the angst that he's suffering as a result; or how he forces himself to confront thoughts and feelings (or maybe they force themselves to be confronted) he'd been trying to suppress. I'm not totally sure. Maybe it's neither. But when I listen to stuff like this, it gives me the heebie-jeebies for some reason.

Elliot Smith I think definately had some fairly deep, haunting things going on with his music, I agree, Ribs.

Even without knowing how it was to end for him, I think, the music still carries it's own weight with the levels of atmosphere and complex emotion put down by the man on record...

Yet, at the time time, I say that, but I suppose as a voyeur, listening backwards to what was, it would be difficult not to pay that little bit more close attention, listen that little bit more carefully perhaps, knowing what we know...

John Legend, Once Again.

Legend takes it old-school and holy shit, I love it.
Standouts for me include "Stereo," "Again," and the Smokey Robinson-channeling "Slow Dance."

Wincing the Night Away, The Shins.

yeah, I know it's not out yet, but seeing how it's leaking like the ass a prototype Olestra taster, I figured I'd get in on early.

not bad so far, bit more rockin' than their last two. Improved studio chicanery, to be sure, but nothing wrong with that.

Unfortunately, "Phantom Limb" is not an ode to the Venture Brothers...

ok, so i absloutely fucking love, and can not stop listening to the third album by Towa Tei - "Last Century Modern".

OMGZ is this a good fucking album. this is one of those albums that is amazing on its own, but when coupled with the right amount of your preferred hallucinogen, will take you to another fucking planet. its very short, but very effective in its limited run time. not a concept album necessarily, but it definitely sounds and feels as if the record was designed, and the tracks arranged very specifically. very awesome. i so envy guys like towa tei. the record is an absolute delight to listen to, and guaranteed to make you shake your ass, or grind on someone else who just so happens to be shaking theirs. "Congratulations!" alone causes me to do things with my body that would make most people sick. i dont know exactly how ringing of an endorsement that is for you, but try not to think of me doing those things (scary and gross alternately) but rather think of YOU doing them, and it will start to sound a little better. go buy this fucking record, will you?

Pretty good, thanks for the heads up a couple of months back Flumm, Edith made me take note again last week.

Well, it does pleasurable things to my brain when I hear it in my ears, anyhow.

I love the strings on Young Bride especially, among other moments.

It has an unusual vibe to it, which some people may not like, but I think it has something behind the quaintess and simplicity of the stylings, so I'll liekly place it lovingly and reasonably high on my list of the years best, I think.

Some strong imagery in that video I think, would be interested to see what the apparent music vid vet director, Sophia Muller and collaborator Logan came up with should he/she they choose to go filmic.

(I felt like I should look that information up mid parahraph it sounds a little forced)

Listening to...

Devics - Distant Radio

I don't know much about them at all, but I'm really kind of liking what I hear, anyone know of them?

Merging into...

Wilco - Ashes Of American Flags

Bishop Allen

I keep seeing their names adorned here and there now, so perhaps one of my musical secrets from a years worth of listening can be clutched with a little less stoic desperatation now they're out there for the world to hear.

Took me a while to warm to them admittedly, but they have seeped gently soulwards and are implicitly indespensible to my mp3 player now.

Maybe they will for you, maybe no, but they make interesting tunes anyhow, a cool draft of sonical tonic for the earholes and mindhole alike.

couple of things...

the bomb squad (Hank Shocklee, Keith Shocklee & Eric "Vietnam" Sadler) we're beat revolutionaries. Eons ahead of their time.

Flavor Flav broke my heart when I found out he was a crackhead. Yeah, I know I should've seen that coming, but I grew up with Public Enemy, and his betrayal of the groups message fucking hurt.

Professor Griff is a pox upon humanity.

and the brief flash of Tawana Brawley always makes me cringe...

I don't think many saw it coming and it's a shame that it did, I always imagined Flav would go on to more important things when I was a teen.

- Add N to (X) 'Loud Like Nature' and 'Avant Hard'
- Bowie - 'Changes'
- Archers of Loaf 'Icky Metal' (Learo, You’re a Hole is one of the best songs evah!) and 'All The Nation's Airports'
- And last, but certainly not least, ATL's own The Close - 'Sun, Burn'

Still some of the most badass parrtEE drum machines and sampling beats and riffs put on record by man, IMO


speaking of which - got a sampler from the Australian Label Modular with some great tracks by Cut Copy, MSTRCRFT and the presets - all fantastic music, but the track that is really fliping my beanie?

New Young Pony Club: Get Dancey

They're gona give, gonna give me all their love, gonna give, gonna give....

IPAMPILASH!!! It was actually the harp playing I thought she might like, and I was right, but she did ask "why does she insist on singing like a little girl?"
