I never realised before how much Interpol sound like Xiu Xiu on I Luv the Valley Oh!.
I am also currently listening to Josh Pyke's new album, which is good if a bit singer-songwriterish-familiar, and also some weird weird stuff by a band called Of Montreal. Which escapes categorisation by dint of being so odd.
And then there's new Kings of Leon song, On Call, which I seem to have a crush on, because it makes me quite schoolgirl giggly. The dudes in the band however? Need to wear looser jeans and get haircuts or something, which just reveals how old I am. And the video clip is just rotten. Almost as bad as Eskimo Joe's Black Fingernails Red Wine video, though the song is much much better. Much much. Much.
Other albums I want to buy but don't have the money to right now: the entire Calexico back catalogue, Joanna Newsom's Ys, 9 by Damien Rice, I am not afraid of you and I will kick your ass by Yo La Tengo, Neon Bible by Arcade Fire (I totally liked them before they were hip), Jenny Wilson's album, and... I'm still debating whether or not to buy the new Modest Mouse CD. I think that's it.
So what are you listening to right now? Anything spectacularly ground-shakingly good?
