19 Oct 2010, 1:17Weekend before last I accidentally saw a great band called tunnels to holland. They were at a nearly empty festival and I can't believe people aren't lined up to see them. Influences I could hear right away: The Doors, The Killers, Cake, Bauhaus. Loved it and bought everything they had (they are on iTunes/Amazon). I hope they quit their day jobs and make a lot more music.
Albums I bought today: Crystal Castles II - surprisingly dark, Black Sands - finally, Maximum Balloon - not sure if I'll like it, groovy funky, maybe it will grow on me?
23 Dic 2008, 16:181. NIN - Echoplex
2. TV on the Radio - Lover's Day
TVotR have performed live with Peter Murphy and Trent Reznor. Dear Science is the first album of theirs that I picked up - love it.
3. Tricky - Past Mistake
Loved for years, critic's darling. The new album, Knowle West Boy, is more accessible than his earlier work.
4. ohGr - Smogharp
My favorite track off Devils in My Details.
5. Gina Young - The Boy on the Bus
Political song from the wonderful Gina Young, on 3am Voice. Her first two albums are also excellent.

4 Mar 2008, 1:20I bought the $10 version of Ghosts I-IV. Actually, it's $16.99 including shipping, but OK, it's a Nine Inch Nails album so I'm not going to complain too much. But I tried last night, I tried this morning, and I tried twice tonight, and can't get my download to work. Got to 9%, and then... poof. No music for me.
At any rate, very very happy that the hyped surprise was a new album. Kinda wish there were lyrics - I like lyrics, and I like Trent's voice. Looking forward to hearing parts II-IV though.
Sigh. Well, at least a couple of things arrived from Amazon today: Begin To Hope and Made in the Dark.
The Regina Spektor album had me worried at first. The first few tracks are very light and on first listen kind of poppy. This version of Samson comes nowhere close to matching the shattering beauty of the version on Songs. But it starts to loosen up around track seven, Après Moi and it's still sounding good at track 10, Edit. Seems like money well spent.
Haven't listened to the Hot Chip album yet, but I'll probably post reactions in the next day or two.
13 Feb 2008, 1:43All of the bands in my last entry are utterly excellent. Otherwise, they wouldn't be in my top 20. Much respect to all musicians. Music keeps me alive.
