Just gave the new album a spin tonight. Really enjoyed it. Iron and Wine remain one of my favorites.

I'm saving the best for last.

White Lies--"Ritual"
Maps & Atlases--"Perch Patchwork"
Paul Weller--"Wake Up the Nation"
Sufjan Stevens--"The Age of Adz"
The Decemberists--"The King is Dead"
Gaslight Anthem--"American Slang"
Ariel Pink--"Haunted Graffiti"



"The Age of Adz" has been getting heavy play in my system recently. Nice change of pace for Sufjan Stevens.

Got "Ritual" in the mail yesterday, but haven't listened to it yet.

I found two new (to me) artists that will need further investigation, but so far I'm liking them.

Kerli, from Estonia, with her album Love is Dead. One review called the musical style "creepy dollhouse". I played "Walking on Air", and found that description perfectly apt.

Loquat, from California, have been around a while, and I don't know how I missed them. Giving their sophomoric release, It's Yours to Keep, a try. Sort of an American Portishead. As a starter, give "Swingset Chain" a spin.

I'm listening / watching "The Cure - Trilogy" blu-ray.

Quite good actually. This was never a genre of music I was much interested in, but this is quite listenable.

Even though I got it on release, I hadn't listened to Who Killed Amanda Palmer for a while. It just didn't take with me (I was probably expecting more Dresden Dolls, and that it isn't), but with fresh ears, and new speakers it really shines.

Today's first hour of Performance Today(available on demand for 7 days on their website)featured a hot performance of Carmina Burana by the Montreal symphony. About 2/3rds was included on the program, beginning about 13 minutes into the hour here . Well worth the listen, and I'm sure that I'll listen again over the next few days.

Pink Floyd's 'Division Bell' ... an SACD version of this disc would put it right up with DSOTM in my estimation, although it sounds great on it's underrated own.

I personally believe this is one of the best Pink Floyd albums ever put out.

I love this album. Listened to it a he'll of a lot when my wife (then girlfriend) were broken up, so it used to bring back this negative memories. smirk

I concur, Rick. Great album.
