Fred, is that an album? Please share! I'm a Martha Wainwright fan.

FredK: Jake Shimabukuro is pretty outstanding. Thanks for that link, I hadn't seen it. Masterful arrangements and performance, both in technicality and in soul and nuance.

It reminds me of these guys, which I'm sure have already been mentioned somewhere in this thread if I bothered to search through all 650+ pages: Mnozil Brass. These guys are tons of fun and equally masterful.

Mnozil Brass - Bohemian Rhapsody

Also in my five-disc changer at the moment: They Might Be Giants - Green. Ween - La Cucaracha. Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger. Supertramp - Breakfast In America. Outkast - The Love Below.

That last one in particular is a sonic delight. While there are a few weaker tracks, and a few skits that some people could do without, the album is largely a bowl full of funky ear candy. A good set of speakers will do justice to the album, and vice versa. I highly recommend it. Tons of fun, especially when you can hear all the details. I've owned it since it was released in 2003 and to this day it puts a smile on my face every time I listen to it.

Stopped by three record stores today and bought way too many CDs.

Currently listening to: Puscifer - "V" is for Vagina.

I like most of it. I prefer the more moody, less energetic tracks. Sound quality is great. My M80s certainly seem to enjoy playing it.

Here is the track that I stumbled across that sparked my interest in the album: Track 4: "Momma Sed", on YouTube.

Found a rather intriguing band Katatonia last night. Sampled their album "Night is the New Day" and the CD is on order. A great atmospheric, doom progressive and melodic group. Here's a paraphrase from a review by Rocksound.TV:

Taken as a whole, this record is a mind-bending odyssey of melodies, moods, colours and soundscapes; labyrinthian ambience, glorious heights, despairing lows, and the type of awe-inspiring set of chapters which demand an instant replay. This is truly classic Katatonia, and of an unprecedented quality.

Henry, that track you linked is pretty cool. I'll have to check out some more of their music.

Playing some of Regina Spektor's concert Blu-ray again. Still love the sound.

Also, Stone Darling's cover of Funkadelic's "Can You Get to That."

Its not an album as far as I know, but lucky for you its in the CBC concerts on demand site.

I love Martha. I also love the randomness that radio can deliver. I would never go out and buy this on my own.

Enjoy!
