If you like the Strokes, you'll like The White Stripes even more. Happy and delicious.
"Les contes d'Hoffmann" Offenbach
The Yule greetings on RUV1.
Anyone ever listen to Priory? Their debut album was a pleasant surprise for me. I highly recommend it.
Lutoslawski's "String Quartet," played by the Kronos Quartet.
Meltwater drops beating an impressive drummer's call.
Billy Idol ...all.
AC / DC
Dwight Yoakam ...all.
This is my current earworm: Bob Ralston playing Country Gardens on harpsichord with swing and awash.
Burial & Four Tet - Nova
Not really sure how I feel about it just yet, but I'm listening to Japan's Tin Box.
Rolling Stones ...all.
Il Rumore Del Fiore Di Carta - Mira
Gorgeous song. But the video? You have to at least watch the video.
Right now, an old .mod file, newtek-mc.mod, which I remixed effin yonks ago from the even older newtek.mod.
And now it's my precious Sonus Futurae tape... and 1111 this post has type.
If you google for the name, go to Images and pick the record sleeve, you'll find the band's name in almost-canon Moore Computer. The tape, however, has the name in decidedly-NOT-canon Moore Computer.
Edit: You can see the sleeve on these two Youtube videos as well: Myndbandið and Skyr með rjóma. FYI, this is a tad old-fashioned synth pop.
Elmer Bernstein, Harry Betts & Herb Steward: To Kill a Mockingbird
Carmine Coppola: The Black Stallion
Lovely sounds and great background music.
U2 - The Joshua Tree
I'm listening to three new 2011/2012 bands/artists with a typographic approach to band naming:
WZRD (Bonus: Somewhat interesting type treatment to the Trade Gothic-esque type on the album cover: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:41ar5KYsRQL._SS500_.jpg)
JMSN (Bonus/Annoying: The album is called "†Priscilla†", with two daggers in it)
Mossy & The African Children's Choir - The Light
I love progressive house, I love African choral music, I would naturally love progressive house that samples African choral music.
My neighbours playing Uriah Heep's "Lady in Black" on their stereo. In my not-in-the-least-bit-humble opinion, it is among their best.
One of the first songs I learnt to play was Uriah Heep's Wizard! Almost makes me want to restring my guitars and play it again and again just thinking about it.
But right now I'm listening to The Wallflowers in particular One Headlight...
...I just knocked the branding for a client's party limousine biz clear out of the ballpark and through someones front window - somehow that song just seems to fit.
Uriah Heep > Roger Dean > interest in lettering
Dan Mangan ...all.
Happy Birthday Doris!
Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)

Repitch - Irradial. Love it, love it, love it.
An OPL3, albeit an emulated one, trying its darndest to play some Pachelbel fugues.
Sigur Rós - Varúð
Classic stuff, art school eh ... funky daze?
I'm currently listening to Marilyn Manson ...
I’ve always had a soft spot for Stevie Winwood, along with Marriott and Burdon, because they were so young and soulful, barely older than me when I was ﬁrst getting into pop music. A vicarious blackness, indeed. But by the time I went to art school in 1970 I really wanted to listen to stuff that was totally cosmic, eclectic and bizarre, or just plain obscure. So yes, I dug Trafﬁc’s funky jamming, but was more into Mahavishnu and Zawinul. And you will still ﬁnd me rummaging through old vinyl stores looking for albums on labels such as Turnabout and Nonesuch.
Steve_P, do you know about the ebow?
Meanwhile I've been listening to Ligetti, more and more Ligetti. A little Schnitke, thrown in on the side.
@Nick: Traffic was deeply uncool when my roommate turned me on to them in the postpunk early '80s, but that album was the soundtrack for more than one all-nighter during my brief stay in art school.
The same overambitious emulated OPL3, but this time it's aspiring to be the organ in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.
The Clash ...London Calling
Train in Vain: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=q3Yl4ehzX-o
Ever since I got my Sonos system for my home, the amount of music I listen to has probably exponentially. Highly recommend it.
Currently I am quite fond of Ben Howard, Paper Kites, Oscar Peterson, and Of Monsters and Men.
It usually does when you get yourself a new stereo.
Right now it's an old tape with Madness (Uncle Sam, Night Boat To Cairo, Embarrassment and Madness), Klaus Wunderlich and Franz Lambert among others.
