lapietra...

The Interpol album is great! I really can't tell you what is so great about it. I find I can listen to it over and over without getting sick of it. If you can download music, I suggest trying out a few songs....try NYC, Roland, The New, Say Hello to the Angels. It's probably #2 on my best of the year list, behind ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead's "Source Tags and Codes". I have a feeling it'll surpass it soon.

hey Bubbles

BTW - great nomiker!
Thanks - that's exactly what I look for in an album - stands up to repeated listenings - and especially nice if it reveals more each time. (That's what I like about the Tom Petty album I mentioned - he's just brilliant - deceptively simple lyrics, great use of space...gives the words time to land and let you have your own thoughts.)
I'll check out the stuff you recommended - I've been kinda stuck in a rut lately and don't recognize any of the bands people are mentioning... old fart, I am, lately.

more good new stuff...

Doug Martsch, lead singer of Built to Spill, just released a solo album on Tuesday. I haven't bought it yet, but from what I've sampled on his web site (www.dougmartsch.com), it's great.

more! more! more!

I'm a geek. I thought of some more essential recordings.

Neutral Milk Hotel - In an Aeroplane Over the Sea
Will Oldham - I See a Darkness

That's it for now.

Bubbles, your musical selections are great! It makes me miss all my stuff at home and indie/college radio stations. Everything in Hong Kong is so mainstream

Switchfoot. Been my favorite for years. They have a great flash site. Think catchy pop tunes with a point.

DenisonMarrs. Also lovely. A little more hardcore I guess. I'm not so great calling genres and subgenres. It's good stuff though.

Pedro The Lion. Tasty Emo. David Bazan is definately a storyteller. All of his cds tell a story from song to song. Good stuff.

The Faint. Local to Omaha. Very Indie. Very wonderful. I would deffinately suggest listening to the song Glass Danse when you're in a dancing mood.

I think those are my basics.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Hoover Phonic. Man I love that woman's voice. Great music for an overcast day or just a rainy indoor day. Very ethereal...kind of haunting.

I cannot stop listening to Shy Nobleman: www.shynobleman.com
I absolutely love this cd. Very poppy, quirky and addictive. He is a relatively new (at least to me) artist from Israel. If you go to the website you can listen to most of the songs on his cd. Just hit "how to be shy". My favorites are "Power pop symphony" and "Sad song happy song". He will be in NYC on Oct. 7 at Makor in the Steinhardt Bldg. If only I lived in NY.
I also love:
That Dog- Retreat from the sun
Anything by Liz Phair
Southern Culture on the Skids-Dirt track date and Plastic seat sweat
Jellyfish-Spilt Milk and Bellybutton
Wilco-Summerteeth.

Oh boy am I gonna get laughed at...

...Nowhere near as cool as y'all...lately my playlist has been pretty strange:

Oasis
Beck (in anticipation of new album)
Coldplay
The Strokes
new Springsteen
an old Dwight Yoakam record I found in closet (Guitars, Cadillacs)
John Reuben
KJ-52
Can't stop spinning Moby 18
a prerelease of the new Superchick
The Codenames
and some Count Basie.

Let's see, links:
oasis

Beck

ColdPlay

The Strokes

John Reuben

KJ-52

Superchic[k]

The Codenames

I don't think Count Basie has a website.

You're cool!

Hey Mean girl,
I absolutely love The Strokes. I was listening to it so much, I had to take a break. And I used to listen to Dwight Yoakam's, Little Ways, over and over. I'm not familiar with all on your list, but will check them out.
I also have to add to my list Robyn Hitchcock (pretty much anything he has done, maybe check out a greatest hits type dealio). I'm watching a concert film of him called "Storefront Hitchcock" on IFC right now, and I forgot how much I loved him. Also The Replacements and anything Paul Westerberg has done solo since. I can't seem to stop listening to my old favorites. But again, everyone should check out the Shy Nobleman.

in regards to the new Beck

It's pretty weak by the standards Beck has set for himself, anyways. Mutations is my favourite Beck and it sounds like he was trying to duplicate it or something, but he failed. I've got to give it more of a listen, but that's my initial feeling.

Oh ya, you can download it here:

Love,

Bubbles

The Replacements!

YEAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!

Once upon a time, my most favorite band in the world.

Rock the house.

Ahhhhhh, The Replacements. I was quite the fan myself. I think I've seen them live at least 10 times, (I would have to check my concert stubs, I know I'm a dork!) from Bob Stinson to Slim to that new dorky drummer who replaced Chris Mars. How I wish they would reunite and tour. Have you listened to much of Paul Westerberg's solo stuff? It's pretty good, although much more mellow. After the Replacements, I went through a Soul Asylum stage. They were very good, until that Runaway train cd came out. I think I even heard that song in muzak. Crazy.
