I'm going to recommend two albums: Nellie McKay's new one Pretty Little Head. Also is Lupe Fiasco's very interesting album Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor. bob

Waits' Orphans, Brawlers is on 'the deck' .
Brilliant, of course.
And Anti have done a great job with the 3 disc packaging. A ninety-odd page booklet with lyrics and prev. unreleased photos.

Bit of a hip-hop kick as of late. Really want to get a hold of Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor. Just picked up Jay Z's Kingdom Come, he is the man for a reason. a

Helmet's Meantime and Slayer's Reign In Blood for Thanksgiving.

I have been going through a bit of a "back to the roots" sort of thing lately. While in Bristol a few months ago the wife and I went to a club that had a "massiv" drum & bass and jungle set playing with some damn good DJs & MCs. I had been away for so long, it felt like going back to a old trusted pair of boots. Aaaah, amen break, how I unbeknownst to me I missed thy guiles... I have been listening to more IDM and drum & bass lately. Amon Tobin, Xploding Plastix, Dillinja, Squarepusher, Hybrid (I choose noise is great) and the like. Good times. And I finally got around to listening to more dancehall after many many years of absence - I blame that Jamaican restaurant in Tampa, FL, that had some great thumping dancehall blaring. Made me start looking for some good stuff of the sort (open to recommendations, by the way). P.s. the curry goat there was great

re. DnB: do you like Roni Size? how about Keltech or Rareform. Pandora has given me DJ Baby Anne.

I'm seeing Devotchka on the 30th, so I've been spending a lot of time listening to Una Volta, How it Ends, and the newer EP, which incidentally has a fantastic cover of "The Last Beat of my Heart" by Siouxsie and the Banshees.

An older album: I like the Thin White Duke and Trentemøller tracks the best.

You know, I am sort of undecided on d&b. I have had a weakness for good old fashioned ragga jungle but I am getting more and more in to the more technical drum & bass. I do have Aphrodite's two albums though

Roni Size is good.
Need to look in to Rareform & Keltech.
My most played new albums are Acoustica: Alarm will Sound plays Aphex Twin (incredible album) and Birdy Nam Nam's Birdy Nam Nam.

If you want some DnB suggestions, I'd be happy to tell you about some albums you'd like.

Dieselboy - System Upgrade
Dieselboy - The Human Resource
Dieselboy - A Soldier's Story
Freaky Flow - Envy (pretty chill DnB)
Evol Intent - Us Against the World


And not DnB, but these are good electronic albums I have been listening to recently:

Goldfrapp - We are Glitter (2006, Electroclash)
Exaile - Hit the Machine (2004, Psytrance)
K Def - Willie Boo Boo "The Fool" (2006, Trip-Hop)
Squarepusher - Hello Everything (2006, Electronic)
Xploding Plastix - Amateur Girlfriends go Proskirt Agents (2001, jazzy electronic)

I'm drawing a blank now but I can probably think of more later. If you have trouble finding any, I can burn some CDs and send them to you or something.

I have a Xplosive Plastix's The Donca Matic Singalongs, great stuff. I have been debating the Squarepusher album you mentioned. He is a taleneted chap.

Thanks for the reccomendations vman!

*off to start up pandora.fm*

P.s. check out Peekah Taylor - something betwen Amon Tobin and Squarepusher. Good stuff.

There's an underground club (literally) near my house that has rave parties on certain nights of the week - I think Fridays. They have a lot of Drum n Bass and other electronic DJs perform, and my German friend says they are very big names in Europe. I will check it out some time. I might go see Frankie Bones in two weeks, for $5.

Have been listening to The Shins new album a lot lately, which is entitled 'Wincing the Night Away'.

It has a much darker feel than the previous two, and is more mature. It is very good.
