Everything to Lose- Cheyenne Kimball

She has a cute voice.  I like how it sounds when she says "I think I'm in love with you.  Yeah you."  It's almost like an afterthought, which someone how makes it funny.

I'd never heard Umbrella 'till yesterday, and I wanted to know what the hell the fuss was all about. So I looked it up, and now it's stuck in my head.

Right now listening to Destroyer.

Currently listening to a dark ambient artist called Deaf Center, and the albums I'm spinning are "Pale Ravine" and the "Neon City" ep.

Here's a description of the band....

Quote
After the critical acclaim of their Neon City EP, Pale Ravine is the long awaited full-length realization of Erik Skodvin and Otto Totlands musical ideals. Taking up where Neon City left off with its epic sound collages and textural soundscapes, Pale Ravine manages to provide a sound altogether more Lynchian and grimly cinematic. Using influences from further back in their lives, the two Norwegian musicians have looked deep into their own family histories to piece together a dusty and nostalgic epic.

Inspired by old silent 8mm film reels, the historical architecture around them and the call of the alluring Norwegian landscape, the duo set out armed with microphones to record whatever they could to capture these feelings. Sounds from battered old records, cash registers, broken machines and a half-dead piano were all blended into the mix to add a warm, homely depth to the recordings. These sounds are most evident in the track Loft, where knocks and wooden creaks give an almost claustrophobic feel to the music. Again on The Clearing a subtle field recording gives the track a rich and involving background and helps build up the mysterious aura before launching a skewed 1930s circus-waltz.

One of the most stand-out influences on Pale Ravine is theatre, or at least the romance of all things theatrical. Not so much theatre in all its pretentious excesses, but the childhood apprehensiveness and the sinister undercurrents. From the muffled ticket booth ambience of Lobby to the solemn dance of White Lake it all appears draped in thick billowing velvet. The dense narrative technique the duo employs is almost like a reverse to a silent film the soundtrack is provided to be accompanied by the imaginative visuals of the listener.

Pale Ravine is an album which again manages to blend elements of classical music with electronic music, yet there is something decidedly different which sets it apart from the competition. While there are elements that can be compared with contemporaries such as Max Richter, Marsen Jules or Ryan Teague Deaf Center is altogether more other-worldly, darker and ultimately very rewarding.

Yo La Tengo's "We're An American Band," a fine track from perhaps their best album. It slays the song of the same name by that 70's rock group, whose name escapes me at the moment.

Found a vinyl copy of Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, by Neil Young and Crazy Horse, and listening to "Down by the River", my favourite NY song period. It sounds effing great on this.

That reminds me of the "Being Poor Has Never Felt So Good" thread. I miss that thread.

Right now I'm listening to Cadence Weapon on myspace. I'd not heard of him before last night, when a friend dragged me to a show just down the round. Cadence was the only stand out act. I definitely enjoyed his performance, and will probably try to get hold of some kind of record by him soon.

I've been listening to Ratatat's 'Classics' album...
No vocals, just music to dance to when the need strikes. And listening to this album does make the need strike often....

I've also recently been obsessing over Stars' 'In our bedroom after the war' album after going to their show at Seattle's Showbox at the Market the day after my anniversary....

My auditory needs are fickle....

If you know of Ratatat, try some Kenna... but he has more of a hip-hop feel and lyrics to boot...

You Don't Have to Let Go- Jessica Simpson

Yes she's an airhead, and no I don't believe she had much to do with writing this song even though she has songwriting credit, but it's a beautiful song in which she actually uses that amazing voice of hers.

I like everything about Dungen.  The drums make me happy.  I wish I knew Swedish, but it really doesn't matter.

Jay Chou - 牛仔很忙 (pretty much "A Cowboy's Very Busy," I think)


Perhaps the only Chinese country/western tune in existence. (I speak preemptively, though.)

If there was any possible way for me to share this, I would.

I like that song!

A friend of mine got mad at another friend of mine for saying that song had a country sound.  Denial.

The "Casiotone for the Painfully Alone" album Twinkle Echo. As terrible as this one mans band's name is, Owen Ashworth creates really pretty/sad electro pop songs with pretty great lyrics. He also puts on a cool live show. This is a darn good album.

Seriously, Of Montreal should make more long songs like this one. A lot more. It's awesome.

Holy shit. For some reason I've always been of the opinion that Of Montreal weren't 'my thing' and just kinda ignored them, for years. I got the latest one from the Sendspace thread on a whim, just finished listening to this song and it's epic. Absolutely blinding.

Strangely, I've had a very similar experience lately. I never thought I liked Of Montreal even though I never really listened to them. I got most of their albums from a friend of mine and, just a few minutes in, I was kicking myself for not listening to them sooner. Truly great stuff. They're definitely one of the more interesting and better "indie-pop/rock" bands that have found popularity in the genre.
On topic: I'm listening to a mix of Mountain Goats, Mount Eerie, Iron and Wine, Songs: Ohia and a few others. At the moment the rather irritating song "Dance Music" by The Mountain Goats is on.
