Janelle MonŠe - The ArchAndroid. I'm not too big on R&B, but this woman is extremely talented.
After school my hair took me to the station... because it wanted a larger audience.

We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

NPR is streaming The Melvins show from Bonnaroo for free, I'm listening to it right now, pretty good sound quality too.

Possibly the most pretentiously unpretentious album cover art ever, next to Sigur Ros' "( )."

Hey, it's the guys with the adorable singing dinosaur! I approve.

I think this one has that beat by a mile in that regard. They also deserve the award for trying the hardest to look like they're not trying hard. =)

Haha. I don't even have the cover; who buys cds nowadays?

Regardless, the album itself is good.

this is good, too:

Suckers - Wild Smile

After going through some of my old boxes of albums I found this old gem.




IMHO this is without a doubt one of the best live albums ever. It's actually remarkable. I'm not even big on Led Zeppelin's studio albums, and this is the reason why. They are such an amazing live band. I'm so happy I found this  :guts: And it's from 1972, when they were in their prime.




I'm sure some of you are aware of the new Arcade Fire album coming out on August 3rd. Its called the Suburbs and I can't wait. It's been 3 years since they released Neon Bible and this album is over an hour in length (yes!) here's the title track http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAitZuh4ueg&feature=related


Love it!

I was listening to Uriah Heep's Innocent Victim, and The Alan Parsons Project's Pyramid. Both, awesome.

Neutral Milk Hotel - In an Aeroplane over the Sea

Just curious to know if anyone here has heard this album and what they thought?

Its been my favorite since I first heard several years ago.

I've never been a big fan personally. The guy's voice grates on me, and I think it's overly sentimental. But, I understand why it's popular.

I am enjoying the new Arcade Fire album. Buuuut I think I still like Neon Bible better than this one. Suburbs is clearly a grower, so that feeling may change in time. I've liked it more and more each listen. Favorite track so far is 9.

I feel the same way. It does get better the more you listen to it, but I still don't think it beats Neon Bible (and of course Funeral is in a league of it's own). But it's still a great listen. And yes, track 9, Suburban War, is my favorite as well, mainly because of the last few minutes of the song. The first three or four tracks are also really catchy too.

Great album. Plus I can kinda relate to the lyrical content  :serpico:

One of the best covers ...

I fell in love with this song when I first heard it at Eddie Guerrero's memorial. (my favorite wrestler :sad:)
but I have since then quit watching the WWE.

Im looking forward to Nujabes'/Uyama Hiroto's album: Homeward Journey

I've never listened to Nujabes, and it sounds pretty good! I'll keep em at the back of my mind when I get music. Any albums/ songs you recommend?

pretty much any of his albums are great. Nujabes was all about chill hip-hop like music. heres a nice example:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2O0kuoiAm2A
usually just instrumentals, but he features a bunch of great hip-hop artists as well:

he died this year, but im sure he has a bunch of tracks sitting in his closet. which im sure will make up his new album.

I bought Avenged Sevenfold's new album, Nightmare, on Saturday and I really like it, even though they switch to a new drummer half way through. Their old drummer, The Rev, died of an overdose last December. Unfortunately, that changes the tone of the songs that The Rev didn't perform, but the album is still very well done.

I hate those guys. Their older stuff was so awesome I always listened to it when I was kid but I've never been impressed by the new stuff.

To be honest, I just started listening to them. I'll have to check out some of their older albums; I figure if I like their new stuff, I'll really like their older material.
