Amy Winehouse (Back to Black), Sufjan Stevens (The Avalanche), Joan as Police Woman (Real Life), The Shins (Wincing the Night Away)... all very mellow, for a bit of noise, the new Bloc Party offering (A Weekend In The City) and Pop Levi (The Return to Form Black Magick Party) fit the bill nicely.

My love of October/November has definitely been Deerhunter, but that's not even worth saying, cause that's practically everyone's new love. Cryptograms (the second half) was great, but Microcastle is my album of the year. I listen to "Little Kids" about 5 times a day.

My newest love from-older-days of the last couple weeks has been Kyuss. I've been a QotSA obsessor for years, but for whatever reason, I had never really bothered my time with Kyuss. And now that I have, I'm suddenly obsessed. Kinda frustrating really haha. Better late than not at all though. I sure hope they reunite at Coachella, probably not for 2009, but someday down the road when Josh & Oliveri make up. It's just the ultimate psychedelic desert music. It makes waaaaay too much sense.

I wish Mastodon would be a better live band. They have a lot of potential but they're just way too boring and unaffected. Perhaps if they get big enough they can put on a sweet light show or something too make up for the statuesque performance style.

And that's way too much metal-talking for one thread....

The Darjeeling Limited had amazingly great music. I kinda thought that movie as a whole was pretty underrated. I don't know the guy's other work though, and I should. I've seen some parts of Royal Tennenbaums and that's it.

At Bonnaroo, I camped out for 2 1/2 hours to see My Morning Jacket up front, and for that entire time (about 9 PM-12 AM) they played the same 2 minute song on repeat... its from the Darjeeling Limited, but its actually a really old song, its "Theme for the film Bombay Talkie".

Anyway, it was pretty annoying at first, but after a while, I was hyptonotized. So freaking beautiful. I am hooked, ever since...

yeah a lot of the soundtrack comes from old baliwood films...and the kinks. Wes Anderson did bottle rocket, rushmore, royal tennenbaums, life aquatic and darjeeling. I like darjeeling the best followed by royal, life aquatic, rushmore and bottle rocket...although that doesnt mean I dont love them all I just prefer ones to others.

well, yes, thats quite obvious garet. but folks are talking about loving it in general.

In general it's fairly incredible. It's nice to see music in a film that's inspired by great contemporary classical music (as opposed to drawing from romanticism or directly nabbing contemporary classical music ala Inland Empire or Children of Men).

The piece works better outside of the soundtrack as far as straight listening though.

Boys Don't Cry and The Head in the Door but I've been listening to Disintegration and the new one, 4:13 Dream

Pornography is my favorite. Followed by either Faith or Seventeen Seconds.

Three Imaginary Boys. But right now I am obsessed with The Whip.

Frustration sounds like New Order. Am I right?

Is anyone obcessing about MGMT? That album is growing on me.

It grew all over indie 103 too for the past 9 months they have been playing it out. I think most people had it grow on them a while back and are now recovering from the removal. Although I still like the song "kids"a lot.

I missed the MGMT bandwagon too and just got into them in the last few weeks. I regret not checking them out at Coachella because the album is really growing on me a lot.

I've seen MGMT twice here in El Paso, and I never really enjoyed them live the way I do in their album.

CDs in my car currently include:

Animal Collective
Blond Redhead
And you will know us by the trail of the dead

But, time to change CDs, I have played these too many times.

MGMT SUCKED at coachella but watching them open for BECK back-to back nights converted me. Theyve definitely improved their live show

MGMT was kind of the highlight of that concert with Beck. Spoon was pretty good, but went on way too long. Then, Beck was a little disappointing. I've seen a couple of his concerts but this time he seemed to be trying to be somebody else... Tom Petty? Anyway, no fun surprises, no funky dances, etc. MGMT had a kind of too short set that night.

I saw Beck in Chicago though. He fucking nailed it on the head there

I've discovered the "Genius" button feature on the most recent version of itunes. You select a song and hit the "Genius" button. Then itunes creates a 25 song playlist from your library based on the song you selected. It's a fun way to listen to different stuff from your library, especially if you have a shit ton of music on there.

**Yikes, I'm listening to Behind The Bushes by The Knife and they totally have a Pearl Jam sample in this song!!! Oh well, they're still one of my current obsessions!**

Bands I'm going to get burnt out on soon due to self-inflicted overexposure:

The Knife
Talking Heads
The Faint

I love Spoon and would like to see them play for a long time. A perfect toring combination would be SPoon and the Magnetic Fields.

Just a British House/Electro dude, has done some fuckin DIRTYYYYY remixes ... he doesn't reveal his identity, but apparently wiki thinks he's one of the dudes from the Wiseguys and The Black Ghosts.
He's got a whole discog available on Pirate Bay if that's your sort of thing.

I never really go into the Sahara. I tend to stick to seeing bands at Coachella. In my 7 Coachellas I attended, the only artist I recall seeing in the Sahara is the Happy Mondays. I do keep hearing that I missed a legendary Daft Punk show in that tent a couple of years ago. I occasionally walk through the Sahara but I usually never stop for any period of time.
