Red House Painters anyone? Come to think of it, anything on the 4AD label is okay by me. I've seen mentioned several, but don't forget Throwing Muses and This Mortal Coil.
In college I bought everything on 4ad. This was back in the late '80s early 90s so Wolfgang Press, Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Colourbox, Throwing Muses, The Mortal Coil, etc., etc. Anybody else like David Sylvian? Bauhaus?

Now I'm into The Decemberists, Death Cab for Cutie and Iron & Wine.

I sort of feel it's my duty to remain a little hip about music for my dd. My mother listened to WXRT when I was growing up so I got exposed to Roxy Music, The Clash and Elvis Costello very early on plus my mother's love of Led Zepplin, Joni Mitchell and Patti Smith.

Nope, never heard of any of those. The Casiotone for the Painfully Alone album cover is quite charming!

Hey, I got to see Panic at the Disco, Dresden Dolls, and Hush sound last night. It was a great show! Very theatrical and amusing. I was impressed the crowd sang along with every song.

The Spoon site is really nice and there are 15+ songs available.

Does anyone read Venus? That's a pretty cool little mag!
Venus

Oh, and Magnet? It's published in Philadelphia, so I'm not sure how far it goes out into the world.
Magnet
We subscribe, but dh gets annoyed with it.

Never heard of Venus, but I'll have to check it out.
As for Magnet, I know it well. I interned there in college my dh and I used to live with Magnet's editor before we left for our stint in CA. People subscribe to Magnet from all over the world. I remember sending some issues out to as far away as Europe.
Jen, just wondering - why does your dh get annoyed with it?

Undead.Undead.Undead. They were actually before my time, but we liked 'em anyhow. I graduated HS in 1994.

I am sooo in love with World Party right now!!! The local radio station here is playing them in heavy rotation since they played Bonnaroo, it is time for a resurgence of this group Karl Wallinger's is so talented.

Sufjan Stevens announced he's doing a fall tour. I can only imagine that would be an AWESOME show.

Sadly it doesn't look like he's coming to Michigan. I haven't been to a good show in a long time.

It was nice to hear him mentioned in the Snow Patrol song Hands Open, I hope it will help spur a new following.

That's cool!

DH said that they've gone "XPN" on him and that they don't really critique anyone, they just kind of love everything. Apparently, that annoys him. He is a music snob, though.

I can see that about Magnet. I feel a bit like Alternative Press is the same way. (I tend to be a bit of a snob myself )

Yes, I see it, too. There are a few music magazines that used to be a heck of a lot less diplomatic when it came to reviews. That's why I get a kick out of Pitchfork.
As for XPN - hey, that's one of the very few decent radio stations in the Philly area! Sure, they play some lame crap but on occasion they'll play long stretches of great tunes.

True!

But he is definitely not a singer/songwriter type of guy, and that seems to be XPN's forte.

Bump! No way is this thread going down! :

So tell me what's up with the Arcade Fire? Are they working on anything new? I do not keeping up with my reading other than Mojo so basically I just learn about the Beatles and the Stones every month

My DH hooked the computer up to our stereo so I can start loading our albums into itunes. I am so happy about this as there is a ton of music that we only have on vinyl--Galaxie 500 most importantly!

Anyone else still collect the albums?

Arcade Fire are fabulous...if you watch TV and have ON DEMAND they have a video on one of the music channels. I also love Broken Social Scene...from all your posts I'd imagine you'd really dig them, Lazyhead.

We have a record player (Gorgeous thing that it is) but we need a new needle. It mysteriously broke and we need to order it online. There's a great record store near us (really close to con leche, actually) that has thousands of records....they don't really specialize in indie, though. Lots of great classic/psych rock and jazz, though.
I mentioned it before...if you're looking for a great record check out Versus' Frog record. OMG.

You know I have a couple Broken Social Scene albums that a friend burned for me and it just doesn't grab me. I will keep listening but I don't immediately LOVE it like I have other stuff. The only thing new I have really liked lately is the new Sonic Youth album and I don't think that counts as new! It's really good though. Their best in a very long time. I downloaded a song by Gnarls Barkley (based on someone's suggestion here) and it is pretty cool and different so I may get the whole album. Any thoughts on this?

I highly recommend http://www.needledoctor.com/ for all record accessories.

Oh and we did download that Versus Frog EP from K Records. It's pretty cool. We decided we would have seriously LOVED it had we heard it back in the day.

Ok, sorry for the poor recommendation, Lazyhead. I guess I'm just so enamored with Broken Social Scene/Leslie Feist (her solo album gets my vote for best summer listening album) that I assume everyone would agree!

I haven't heard the new Sonic Youth but would love to. I've read lots of glowing reviews.

I was the one who recommended Gnarls Barkley. Good stuff. Have you checked out their web site? WEEEEEEEEEEEIRD. We were also thinking about downloading songs for our IPod but weren't sure if it was worth it to get the whole album. On a side-note my dh and I were randomly watching Cribs on MTV months ago and Cee-Lo's house was featured. He and his wife are totally crunchy and seemed so down to earth. I got the impression that they'd fit right in on MDC!

Thanks for the link for the needledoctor. Looks like just the site we need. Here's the turntable we have - in the champagne color. We splurged and LOVE it.

That Frog EP totally reminds me of life before marriage/being a mama. It's so 90s

I see that DJ Danger Mouse is part of Gnarls Barkley. I have an album by him called "The Grey Album" that is all songs with the music from The Beatles' "White Album". It's kind of cool but I really like the "White Album" so after a while I just want to listen to that instead .

Gnarls Barkley is interesting!

No apologies necessary for Broken Social Scene! I swear it's just me. Others have told me I would like them too(hence the burned copies of their albums). Wolf Parade is kind of similar to them I think. Both sort of poised to pick up the Arcade Fire mantle. I will check out Leslie Feist...

What about Clap Your Hands Say Yeah?

I saw them in their last tour and they don't actually. A friend of mine had seen them the tour before that which was before my time and also saw Joe Jackson that same week. He thought Bauhaus would be a bunch of posers and Joe Jackson an honest muscian. Instead Bauhaus basically laughed at their image and had fun the entire show and Joe Jackson complained about the acoustics the entire show. At least until someone pointed out that Louis Armstrong had had no problems playing in that venue. She's in Parties is my fave video by them.

Wow, what year was that, Lisalou? I saw Love and Rockets in ummm '89, I think. The stupid thing is that the Pixies opened up, and I was excited about Love and Rockets. I hardly even payed any mind to the Pixies. It was during the Doolittle era, too! God, 13 year olds are dumb!
