    My friends keep raving about this band Candy Claws, but they make me yawn. I can't see the point of this stuff. Anyone else heard it?

    I haven't heard a whole lot of their music, however for a while last year I was obsessed with this song:

    I am neither foxy, nor a lady.

    Neil Young - Kanye West - Beck - PJ Harvey - The Knife - Basement Jaxx - Tom Waits - Shpongle (Live) - Flying Lotus (Live) - The Avalanches - Autechre - Eels - Fat Freddy's Drop - Liquid Liquid - OFWGKTA - Freddie Gibbs - Big K.R.I.T. - Phantogram - Christian Scott - Nosaj Thing - Gold Panda - James Blake

    I dig the Candy Claws album. It's not great but it's interesting and there are some really catchy songs. Very wispy.

    wow. Sean McCann's "Fountains" is really wonderful. It's a return to his older, strictly ambient work. Probably the most relaxing album I've heard this year.

    I'm really getting into two albums that both have a really solid blend of shoegaze, dream pop, and post pop influences. They're definitely similar bands, and the entirety of these albums are really clicking with me

    Add me to the Mines devotional. Also, the new Vaselines gets the seal of approval.

    So speaking of Mines is the general consensus that Menomena is pretty good live? I feel like I've read off & on things here...I am super excited about seeing them in a few weeks

    They're ok live. They have the same problem live as they do on their albums, it's the same dynamic over and over for 60 minutes.

    i think they are worse live. seen 'em twice and they just can't capture much of the studio work.

    I saw one live set from them that was really good and one that was pretty mediocre. For what it's worth.

    I've not seen a bad Menomena set. Out of 4 times I've seen them they've either been good or great.

    the two Menomena sets i've seen have been good. I can't wait to see them again at the casbah of all places, next month. I don't know how many of you have listened to the suckers(band opening for Menomena) album, but you should get on it. Listen to Loose Change, Save Your Love For Me, and It Gets Your Body Movin' and that should give you a good idea if you'll enjoy the band. Good pop music, with some interesting ideas.

    Good call on Suckers! This is totally right up my alley. Reminds me a lot of Who Knew, who I'm also really digging right now. I see after Menomena they're touring Europe with Yeasayer, and that's a really excellent match for them as well.

    One of the dudes from Yeasayer produced their album and apparently they're good friends. Suckers are really fantastic live, so this Menomena tour is pretty much a must see.

    thanks for the heads-up...really digging them. they kind of sound a bit like Menomena (vocals). in case anyone wants to dig deeper, i've grouped Wild Smile.

    i am checking out Tu Fawning, the other Menomena opener right now and am really digging this as well. They had an ep in 2008 and a first full length out this October so i'm just listening to the couple myspace songs they have up, but I'm really digging it! This is going to be a good show. I hardly ever even show up early enough for openers anymore unless I'm really sure.

    The Boris/Ian Astbury EP is pretty good. It sounds pretty much like what you would expect.

    Agreed. Astbury is just annoying on it.

    They're local. I've seen them in the past and have enjoyed the experience.

    But did they enjoy the experience Hannah? That's the real question. Did they enjoy playing for you?

    The new Royksopp is so mellow, groovy and sexy that it makes my tummy feel warm and fuzzy. Excellent album for making sweet sweet love and/or taking your drug of choice.

    The new Sword album totally fucking slays, which is probably the least surprising revelation ever. This band has an excellent track record of slayage.

    Also, Gun Outfit's Possession Sound came out when I was super busy a few months ago and I totally missed the release. Just listened to it now, and it is one of my favorite things I have heard so far this year. Had to order the LP from Norman Records because it is sold out with all US retailers that I checked. Really good record, check it out.

    The Wild Hunt by The Tallest Man on Earth gets better every time I listen to it. Can't wait to see him again in a few weeks.
