Now Playing: January 2009

Getting in under the wire here, as it’s *almost* February! 🙂

  • K T Tunstall, “Eye To The Telescope”
    • Just good folk/pop/rock kinda stuff.  Love her voice, and she writes some incredibly catchy songs!
  • The Killers, “Day & Age”
    • The newest release from this “isn’t this 1982” throwback band.  Great album!
  • Interpol, “Our Love To Admire”
    • Though I enjoyed their last release, “Antics”, this album just appeals to be more all the way around.
  • Mogwai, “The Hawk Is Howling”
    • Incredible “instrumental” album recommended to me by a co-worker.  Don’t let the lack of vocals stop you from checking this out.  Really, really good stuff, and great for a non-distracting album while you’re working on things!
  • Snow Patrol, “A Hundred Million Suns”
    • A good album, for the most part, but the “heart-wrenching post-relationship” content gets pretty old.  Are these guys the modern-day Air Supply or something?

Enough of this, though.  Back to my music!


Now Playing: December 2008

I’ve been rockin’ out to some new stuff these past few weeks.  For example…

  • The Last Shadow Puppets, “The Age of the Understatement”
    • A very 60s “spy movie” feel that starts with the album art, and continues through the entire album.  “My Mistakes Were Made For You” is a real stand-out track!  Thanks, Andy!!
  • The Posies, “Every Kind Of Light”
    • I’ve been a fan of The Posies since the early 1990s, but this album is honestly some of their best work!  Two tracks also ship with Windows Vista.
  • Darker My Love, “2”
    • Really great alt-rock stuff recommended by a co-worker of mine.  Love it!
  • Starflyer 59, “Dial M”
    • A decent album so far, though I prefer their last effort, “My Island”.

Now…go check ‘em out! 🙂

Now Playing: October 2008

I have to say that my recent subscription to the Zune Pass “subscription”-based service has really opened my library – and tastes – to a whole new arena of music.  I like polka now!

Here are some albums/artists that I’m really enjoying right now…

  • Cold War Kids, “Robbers & Cowards”
  • Starflyer 59, “Old” (or most any recent album of theirs)
  • Rosie Thomas, “If Songs Could Be Held”
  • Damien Jurado, “Caught In The Trees”
  • Clinic, “Do It”
  • The Verve, “A Storm In Heaven”

All really good stuff.
