    My recent listenings have been very dude-heavy. Anyone have any female-fronted outfits to recommend?

    From seeing what bands you listen to, these are my chick picks:

    I think you'd like Sahara Hotnights from Sweden. All chick punkish rocknroll...really f'ing great band. Start with "Jenny Bomb" then get "Kiss and Tell". They are working on the next album right now.

    Also look into the Detroit Cobras. They only do covers of obscure 50s/60s soul/R&B songs rocknroll style. Singer has a great throaty voice and you can't go wrong with any record.

    For something harder/more punk, Deadline from UK is an awesome band. The singer can actually sing, not just scream. Like Vice Squad but with better musicians and songs.

    *btw, all those bands are on myspace to check out

    Just got two great records that slipped under my radar when first released (in all fairness, they came out in March and April, respectively, so I didn't miss the boat or anything): Gregor Samsa's "55:12". Amazing shoegaze(ish) post-rock with oodles of melody. Apparently the band is Richmond-based so I'm definitely hunting them down. The other records is "Diadem of 12 Stars" from Wolves In the Throne Room. Death metal by way of freak folk. Good stuff.

    Got lots of records recently (Herbert, Evangelicals, El Perro del Mar, etc.), and while those two might not be the best, they definitely stand out as something new and wonderful.

    And shoreman: check out El Perro del Mar. As "female" as it gets.

    Speaking of shoegazers... I just picked up the 180g vinyl of My Bloody Valentine's Loveless during my lunch break. A "deaf" buy for me. Can't wait to give it a spin when I get home.

    I did not mean to be insulting [​IMG] - I had forgotten all about it I literally would just start listening to the CD and lose interest...

    Been on a clash kick lately and I just think that this should be someone else's sig.

    Working for a rise, better my station, Take my baby to sophistication


    Also: 3rd eye blind. One really great album.

    Has anyone else here picked up the new Zero 7 album, The Garden? It's been on heavy rotation for me in the past couple days.

    While I don't think it's as good as either of their previous two, Simple Things and When it Falls, - I also love their "this is who we think are cool" album, Another Late Night - it's a pretty good album. There are a few really catchy tunes on it.

    People currently down under in Oz-land: i've just heard the Cat Empire play live here in Singapore, they groove so hard it's funky. Melbournians, apparently. Very tight ensemble playing and they sure know how to set a crowd on fire.
    .



    I am a fan of the Cat Empire, saw them on their last national tour in 05, one of the best concerts I have ever attended. They are fantastic live, big band, energetic and get the crowd dancing all the way through.
    They've released a "cities" album a great collection of tracks, have a listen if you can.

    does anyone have knowledge of a couple groups called Isan and Gravenhurst? I saw them mentioned in the wikipedia article on Four Tet, just wondered what they're like. s'posed to be similar to Four Tet's 'folktronica' sound.

    Excellent taste, my friend. I have been a Bauhaus fanatic since I was 13.

    Bauhaus is playing a show tonight in my city. Unfortunately they are only one of the opening bands, and all my friends who are going to the headliner (Nine Inch Nails) haven't even heard of Bauhaus before.

    I wish I was going, I'd catch Bauhaus and Peaches (the other opener) and walk out of NIN.

    Call me crazy...but I do believe Bauhaus broke up back in 83. Is this a reunion deal or some such?

    Yep, reunion. They also have at least two brand new songs, though I haven't heard them.
