Re: What are you listening to? — Summer 2012

Lots of 80s music being played by me:
The "So 80s" compilation series by Blank and Jones is awesome. Lots of great 12" versions of definitive 80s stuff. Check it out.
Ultravox: "Vienna" has taken up residence in Rdio. It's probably my favorite classic synth-pop album
A number of Sparks albums have resurfaced in my playlist. IMO, one of the more under-appreciated bands of the late seventies, early eighties... at least in the US.
The Way of the Samurai soundtrack has made a surprising resurgence
Listening to some old King Diamond, various albums.
The new White Arrows album is catchy afo-electro pop with really stupid lyrics, perfect for a Sunday morning.
The new Diiv album is yet another "indie-music-by-number" product of the Brooklyn dream pop assembly line but has a good first side (second side kind of blows).
El-P's C4C refuses to go away, still my favorite album I've heard this year.
I introduced my daughter to The Ramones' "Road to Ruin" yesterday, she was ambivalent. Still my favorite Ramones album.

Celebration Rock is up there with On the Impossible Past by The Menzingers as one of my favorites of the year.

C4 is good, but I can only listen to it when I am angry.

Holy cow is Kishi Bashi's 151a good. (For fans of Andrew Bird. He's just finishing up touring with Of Montreal.)

Here's the single:


And my favorite song off the album:

The Japandroids album is awful. Bummed I spend $3 on it.

The album of the year and obviously the album of the summer is none other than:



Edward Sharpe and Magnetic Zeros - Here

Love it, love it....

Not only does he have a new album out, it's by far his best. It's incredible.
