Been a lot of Gene Clark lately, so it's not a step too far to get into the Gosdin Brothers

Lately I've been on a binge of State Radio, formerly Dispatch. I've also been listening to Editors, Sigur Rós, Múm, The Shins and Tears For Fears.

I was glad to hear Soma FM is back online.

As for kids music, my girls (age 5 and 3) can’t get
enough of the Toy Dolls (you know, the 80s punk band
that did “Nellie the Eliphant”). Who would’ve guessed
their goofy lyrics, thick british accents and punk flavor
would be a hit with kids. Or maybe it’s just their name.

KCRW (http://www.kcrw.com). The world-class “Morning
Becomes Eclectic” show is finally an MP3 stream and no
longer a lame Real Audio broadcast.

(Note: It’s a true ‘simulcast’ so you can see the
programming on the site.)

Enjoy.

Wow, Michael, that Beck set is great. (And I need to rescind
my RealAudio rant. Their RealAudio archives are much,
much better with the new—still free—RealOne player).

Stephen is responsible for reintroducing me to Cat Power.

Also, digging Interpol lately. It’s like the distilled
essence of alterna-eighties, in a modern package (sans
the Casio keyboard and the hair).

Oh, and Jared introduced me to Add N to (X).
Nice stuff. It’s like the Chemical Brothers with a sense of
humor, overlayed with Radiohead-esque textures.

I can’t get enough Beth Orton lately. Don’t know what it is… her voice is like butter.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs! As raw as Beth Orton or maybe Cat Power, but more… unexpected. Check it out.

(No, not Hot Hot Heat — who’s lyrics are as repetetetetive as their name. Anyway, what’s with band names nowadays? Soon they’re gonna sound like race horses.)

Excellent suggestion, JFP. I’ve been using iChatStatus for a
long time and it’s an excellent way to catch a bit of what is
going into my buddies’ ears all day. I suggest more Typophiles
get on iChat or AIM and install that sucker.

Here is an old list of Typophile AIM names. I’ve reactivated
the thread. Add yours to it.

> Bowing a guitar like a cello.

Yeah, the end of the guitar was on the floor while he sat in a chair and drew the bow across the middle of the neck. Like a cello. Droning ensues, true to their signature sound. Not sure how Jimmy Page did it. Who’s Jimmy Page? (j/k)

Allow me to imagine Jimmy Page, err I mean, describe how he held his guitar. Ahem. I mean to say that Jimmy would leave his guitar strapped on, slung low on his hips, and would bow the guitar from that position.

(If only I’d been born 20 years earlier!)

The sounds emanating from the iPod earphones of the colleague sitting next to me. Wish I wasn't though. She must have that up waaay too loud.

I just found a fabulous bootleg of a Metallica show put on in Vienna this summer, I pretty much keep it on repeat right now. Too bad their studio work isn’t remotely this good.

I've got a major playlist... but the last couple of songs were from Paul Brady, Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Christy Moore, Van Morrison and Lou Reed.

Just ordered the new Alison Krauss CD so I can trip on the zen-like reserved bass playing of Abraham Laborial, as well as listen to an angel sing. Jerry Douglas and the rest are well worth grokking also.

I am more than a little puzzled that music doesn't seem as important as it once did. I don't know of my hearing is dulled, or could it be my imagination. Or is it simply not as important as I thought it was. I just don't know what to think. Shift happens.

I think the world would be a pretty awful place if there were no music. Just MHO.

The only thing about music that is good is playing it. Of course that is an extremely biased opinion…

I feel the same way about design.

Various Ensemble Organum recordings in rotation. Not only stunning, powerful vocal performances, but the kind of musicological archaeology that makes you question what you think you know about the history of western music.

Today I’m hooked on the Dethalbum. I feel very lucky to live in a time when a cartoon death metal band can release a full-length album and get their marketing people to “leak” it a month before it hits stores.

John’s organum recordings sound fascinating, but I’m on a loud, fast, and distorted binge right now.
