I definitely hear what you mean...the Desert Sessions stuff is great...Homme does have a tendency to rework or adapt some of that stuff for the QOTSA stuff though huh....not sure that's a bad thing as I generally like to see the development.

Currently I have Misfit Love stuck in my head all the time....

I'm listening through the Lyres "On Fyre" record, which for some reason I thought was from the 60s, and if you can stand Farfisa organ and like 60s psych/freakbeat, it's got a few barnstormers. A bit too much Farfisa for me but damn, some of this rules.

Mid-80's. That record was the soundtrack to my life when I was 20.

I love that Farfisa/Vox Continental sound - almost as much as the Hammond sound. It's so cheesy, and so garage at the same time.

The Stems and The Caesars are two more non-60s bands that come to mind that make liberal use of the Farfisa.

I've seen them twice. The late 80's, Quickness tour, at the old 9:30 club on F Street. Ogden Theatre in Denver, 00'ish. Luckily, both times HR was in good form.

Awesome.

I've been listening to older stuff. Lots of Japanese electronics and Marissa Nadler, who I want to marry.

Yeah, that's absurd. Very cool.

Hand up. Loving the playlist by Limping Decorum. I gotta pull some old Husker Du records out. Man, I haven't listened to them in a loooooooooooooooong time.

I received the new Animal Collective, which I've been listening to religiously since Monday. It's definitely the progression that was hinted at on Bees, Banshee Beat and the Hollinndagain album. Lots of tribal drone, yet really slick (welcome to Domino, guys!). I dunno' if its their least accessible, but it's certainly very progressive and it may be their best. I'm not sure yet.

Opened up the new Okkervil River today. I've only given it one listen but the Conor Oberst by way of Jason Molina shtick is in overdrive. What has always kept Okkervil River from veering into overwrought territory is the violence and disturbing images wrapped up in country trappings, which all seem to be downplayed on this record. Seems like a traditional rock & roll hodge-podge.

I've been working on a ring tone so I've been listening to lots of Eno for inspiration. Also, it seems I'm back on the fringe of the gaming industry so I've been taking in The Advantage (who are much more dynamic and rewarding than other game music cover bands such as The Minibosses) and any Yuzo Koshiro I can find.

I've been listening to Voxtrot a lot lately.

Pretty disappointed in the new Okkervil as well, and I really really liked both of their last two albums. Some catchy stuff (Unless Its Kicks), but more mediocre stuff than before and some cheeeeeez ("plus ones" or whatever). Meh.

When I'm not shufflin, I've been listening the Frank Black collection 93-03. Not much on there I don't already have from the albums, but nicely packaged and edited.
