Music stuff

I just noticed that My Brightest Diamond are now the most played artist on this here computer since I got that Last.fm thang. God Machine in second place? What is the world coming too?

I’ve been a bit up and down with new stuff over recent weeks, what with having to use headphones a lot (as Etina is home now), which gets less comfortable for the ears as the hours go on and due to a bit of nostalgia playing, after trying to get into Metallica’s new one, and struggling.

Some stuff that has found its way into this little corner is:

Murder by Death: Red of Tooth and Claw – I did get this earlier in the year but have only recently realised its brilliance. I had some stuff for download here a few weeks ago I think.

Noah and the Whale: Peaceful – Now I’m not sure about this one and it does have a bit of a whimsical feel to it that I don’t really go for. However, one of the tunes features on Match of the Day (which only mylefteye in the whole of my flist watches, I think) and has held on to me for that reason. It’s cheery, it might get you bouncing around and so here it is, let me know what you think:

Noah and the Whale – 5 Years Time

Kings of Leon: Only by the Night – initial views were optimistic, it’s not keeping hold of me and I can feel it slipping away. Shame as the first track is class.

Lambchop: Oh (Ohio) – it’s growing on me but it has work to do. Basically nothing they can ever do can come up to Is a Woman, the third best album ever made, it’s just hard facts.

TV on the Radio: Dear Science – also getting there but slowly. I can’t even guess where this will be come December 31st.

Shearwater: Rook – best album cover of the year and if you are a fan of Okervill River then you need to be listening to this.

What am I missing? What have you lot got as your 2008 gems?
