Today's CDs/Listening Pile (3.13 and on)

Boy, it's been a while since we've done one of these.

What I'm listening to this week (courtesy of the public library, used CD store, and friendly neighborhood file sharers):

Belle and Sebastian - The Life Pursuit
Ladytron - Witching Hour
Sufjan Stevens - Illinois
Alanis Morissette - Jagged Little Pill Acoustic
Len - You Can't Stop the Bum Rush
Enon - Hocus Pocus
Enon - High Society*
Enon - Lost Marbles and Exploded Evidence
Isobel Campbell/Mark Lanegan - Ballad of the Broken Seas
Robbie Fulks - Let's Kill Saturday Night
Petra Hade and Bill Frisell - s/t*
v/a - The Producers (movie musical) soundtrack
Dropkick Murphys - The Warrior's Code
Feist - Let It Die
Atmosphere - You Can't Imagine How Much Fun We're Having
Old 97's - Drag It Up
Old 97's - Satellite Rides
Old 97's - Fight Songs

*Should arrive from the library soon (hopefully, along with Belle and Sebastian's entire back catalog)

Quick shout out to the DVD Talk Audioscrobbler/last.fm group (which is open to all to join). Even though I founded the thing, I haven't really been a part of it much in the past few months. Ever since I got an iPod, how I listen to music has really changed.

If someone wants to come up with a Question of the Week, feel free.

Your library sounds great! Mine doesn't have a big music selection (but I will say we have the entire Criterion DVD collection).

I recently ordered "Petra Haden Sings: The Who Sell Out" from Amazon, and wasn't disappointed. I'll have to look into her collaboration with Bill Frisell.

Hmm.. I'm not sure if I understand what the thread's all about, but I'll guess and see if I can't make a fool of myself! I usually stare at the cd shelf in the morning, so today's selections (with a few weekend leftovers) are:

Stray Cats: Choo Choo Hot Fish
Legacy: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac's Rumours
Stray Cats: Let's Go Faster
Elvis Costello & The Imposters: Cruel Smile
ELO: Flashback (disc 3)
and a compilation cd I made

The Sword: Age of Winters

Been listening to them nonstop for a week.
I just saw them live last week and they completely destroyed. They were the opener and completely blew away the other two bands. Heaviest thing to hit my ears in a long time. Think vintage Sabbath but 100 times HEAVIER!

On a lighter note,
Nickel Creek: Why must the fire die? Those harmonies just won't quit..

Good call on the Murphys.

Last.fm has a plugin that works with your ipod as well. It's called jscrob, I think, and is found in the forums.


Mogwai - Rock Action
Porcupine Tree - Deadwing
Judgement Night Soundtrack
Shadows Fall - The Art of Balance
The Crystal Method - London Soundtrack
Pitchshifter - www.pitchshifter.com
Social Distortion - Social Distortion

All of the central Ohio libraries are networked, so you can get pretty much whatever you want (all but 4 of the discs I listed came from the system)...except that Petra Haden/Who disc, which I'm really curious about. Honestly, I don't really know much about her, but that project intrigued me and I'll be picking up the Frisell collaboration today (dying to hear the "I Don't Want To Grow Up" cover). On her official site are her covers of "Thriller" and "God Only Knows" - both cool.

I'm moving back to VA towards the end of the month and am praying that their region's library system is just as good.

I like DM a lot (prefer their more Celtic stuff to their punkier music). A couple of years ago my brother bought their DVD with the intention of giving it to me for my birthday. He decided to keep it. I'll see it eventually.

Thanks for heads-up on the plugin. I've downloaded it, installed it, and done everything in the read me file, but it's not uploading my iPod songs (only my iTunes ones). I'm halfway through the 11 page thread on last.fm dealing with it. Hopefully, I'll figure out what's wrong.

Listened to The Sword for the first time last night. It is pretty crushing, in a good way, isn't it?

Sweet. Three shows for me also and just got tickets to see them in mid-april. How can they get any better. I can't imagine how incredible they will be in the years to come. They just need a live double disc and dvd already!
