    Tapes 'n Tapes "Walk it Off" dug it out yesterday. I like Tapes 'n Tapes' debut "The Loon" a lot. This album I did connect with right away. Then after listening, outting it away for awhile, then coming back months later and re-listening is great.

    Yes! I really love "The Loon". It was one of the first indie label records I bought. I like XL Recorings.
    Walk it Off was a grower for me. I really like it now!

    Vintage Howard Stern shows at the moment but Genesis' "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway" has been the music o'the day, though.

    Holy smokes.

    The new LCD Soundsystem record.

    Amazing.

    It starts of with a pretty good song, then "Drunk Girls" - definitely the weakest on the album, by far - and then the album just explodes from there! James Murphy said this album would be better than Sounds of Silver and he's right, I think. You can listen to the entire album right now:

    Monkfish- thanks for the LCD link. I knew it came out in about a month, so I didn't think they'd have tracks up quite yet. But I like it a lot. That is a must buy. At my local record store they had LCD Soundsystem under their specials. Maybe the vinyl will be available then?!?!

    Mos Def - Black on Both Sides.

    I really don't like rap alot, but Mos Def is so creative. He does 2 songs with Gorillaz on their new album, so I checked him out. This album is very very good. "Umi Says" is my favorite song of his ever!!! Great mix of laid back tunes, with hard hitting hi p hop too.

    Let's see. I've been compiling some stuff onto the computer to make a compilation CD for someone...

    I've got "Do Ya" going right now -- not the original Move recording, it's the later, more polished ELO version. Before that was "Duke of Orchestral Prunes" off Frank Zappa's massive Lather album. Prior to that was George Harrison's 2000 re-recording of "My Sweet Lord". Before that, Captain Sensible's live version of "NeatNeatNeat", where he jams a seven minute psychedelic guitar odyssey into the middle of a two-minute punk rock song! And before that I was upstairs in front of the teevee grooving on the Flaming Lips performing Pink Floyd's "Breathe" on the Craig Ferguson show.

    Holy Oakmass! I just realized that every single one of the cuts I listed was a remake in some way or another!!! Is there no such thing as originality these days?!? Oh, that reminds me:

    I GOTTA HEAR SPOON'S VERSION OF "LOVE SONG" BY THE DAMNED! IS IT STILL AVAILABLE AT STARF*CKERS OR WHEREVER???
