Diggin Ben Kweller right now. Its a much more oldie sound for new music and its a nice change of pace.

You might like "Awake is the New Sleep" by Ben Lee too. Kinda that same vibe.

 

I just bought a handful of CDs at Borders last night, including this downtempo compilation created by Air, that I'm exploring right now. Kind of interesting.

i really liked ben kweller when sha sha came out. It really was one of those high school albums. BUt man his last two albums have been beyond disappointing. The new one i could barely get through. except for this is war, that was a goodie

I'm embarresed to say that I have a soft spot for Lilly Allen at the moment and a newfound respect for (whispers) McFly! Not sure if anyone over there has come across McFly( I hope not).

has anyone picked up the Lily Allen album I keep hearing about?

I refere you to the above, it's good.

 

Did you know that her Dad, Keith Allen used to be part of the Comic Strip, is now a mainstream actor over here, appeared on Park Life video, wrote and performed with New Order on World In Motion and as Fat Les released Vindaloo, he even had a part in Trainspotting.

I did not know that. Her album isn't even available here on iTunes - have to DL it elsewhere. I have to admit I have a soft spot in my heart for British pop music. There was a McFly song on the last Now comp that I got that is quite good. How is their album?

Lightweight but uplifting. I have taken the piss out of my daughter about them for months, if she read this my life wouldn't be worth living!

This is war is awesome. I've just been listening to various things of Kweller and I give him credit for kind of going with the classic rock genre. Some of his songs are a bit poppy but its still a nice change of pace, imo.

The new Bloc Party album is a joke, but Norah Jones new stuff seems to be pretty good.

This is a very striking song to me.

 

why do you treat me this way?

and why do you try so hard to break my spirit?

i think someone was mean to you when you were little,

that's what i think.

i think someone was mean to you.

 

why do you cling to such petty points of contention?

and why don't you allow one or two small victories now and then?

i think someone was mean to you when you didn't deserve it,

that's what i think.

i think someone was mean to you.

 

but i, i am not that guy.

can you get that straight?

i am a completely different person

from the one you have in mind.

 

why do you stand by the things you say long after

you don't mean to hurt anybody anymore?

i think someone was mean to you

for a long, long time, that's what i think.

i think someone was mean to you.

 

I love the Mountain Goats.

I haven't been able to take the following albums out of my CD player recently

 

Brother Ali - Shadows on the Sun

Brother Ali - Champion EP

Macklemore - The Language of My World

Jello Biafra and Mojo Nixon - Prairie Home Invasion

 

And a two disc set of Bob Marley and the Wailers hits. Surprisingly, the kids I teach really like Bob Marley tunes when I play them -- they get time to work in class, so I play some tunes while they work. It's ranged from Coltrane, Davis, Hooker to Marley so far.

The new one took me a little while. I really like Millstone and Archers, quality stuff. They dial it back a notch every album though, it sounds nothing like thier first album.

i think their musicianship improved. I heard some hot modest mouse guitar licks in there.

Ya, I had been complaining about it, but turns out I had a demo version and the real version is top notch, very top notch.
