If you like the Strokes, you'll like The White Stripes even more. Happy and delicious.

Anyone ever listen to Priory? Their debut album was a pleasant surprise for me. I highly recommend it.

Il Rumore Del Fiore Di Carta - Mira

Gorgeous song. But the video? You have to at least watch the video.

Té Rowan's picture

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.

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:

The Weeknd
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.

5star's picture

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.

Repitch - Irradial. Love it, love it, love it.

An OPL3, albeit an emulated one, trying its darndest to play some Pachelbel fugues.

When I was at art school, the guy who lived in the flat below me would play this all night. I think I’m over that at last, and enjoying those long laid-back jams.

Not actually listening to this, but was reminded of similar hyper-dropshadow typography from the same time (c.1970).

Classic stuff, art school eh ... funky daze?

I'm currently listening to Marilyn Manson ...

Nick Shinn's picture

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.

marcox's picture

@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.

Té Rowan's picture

The same overambitious emulated OPL3, but this time it's aspiring to be the organ in the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam.

BrettR's picture

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.

Té Rowan's picture

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.
