I see Sun advertised in glass doors here in Paris, but I haven’t bought it. To be honest, it sounds a bit emotional for me. From that article: struggles this, feel that, tortured the other. Too heavy for me right now.

Cancer 4 Cure is brilliant though. Still listening to that regularly.

Watching AND listening to this excellent webcast from Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.

http://www.tellurideblues.com/dsp_webcast.htm

Little Feat just started, and tonight's closer (right after that) is The B-52s.

More good stuff tomorrow and Sunday.

I've been in a White Stripes mood lately. Playing Icky Thump on a loop right now.

Love the electric organ on A Martyr for My Love for You.

I'm listening to this little voice in my head that keeps saying "why... why did you upgrade iOS before reading the reviews, you idiot?!"

So this week I went on an iTunes binge. I bought about 20 songs over the last few days, and in the past month or so, about 10 others and a movie. I never do this so I feel shame. I usually buy 8-12 songs a year, not 20 in a week.

But I recently bought a HD to back up all my CD music that I want to keep from years gone by (donating all but a handful of the CDs so going fully digital pretty much); the process has got me thinking about music again and scanning around the iTunes store for new stuff. Which is harder than it ought to be IMO. Some questions for you music gurus:

1) Is there a way to make the Genius thing look at a small selection of songs and go "Oh yah, if you like that, check this artist out"? All I can get it to do is make play lists from my own music.

2) Can anyone recommend a good artist(s) that combines elements of orchestral music with electronic (non-dance non-trance), like you might find in a good movie soundtrack? Something like what you might get from Hans Zimmer, only a little more varied in terms of not using so many kettle drums, "running violins" (i.e. things you hear in all dramatic movies but don't really notice too much). Not to say I don't like Zimmer, the style is right I'm just talking about less formulaic than most soundtracks.

I actually downloaded a couple tracks from Daft Punk's Tron Legacy soundtrack and they're pretty good because unlike everything else Daft Punk does, there are real instruments mixed in with subtle highs and lows / speed ups and slow downs. Way more variation than their usual stuff, which I have no interest in.

3) Have you listened to Lindsey Stirling yet? It's like a cross between synth music and classical violin... some of it is way too dance / techno sounding so I bought like 4 tracks from her album and skipped the rest, but she's pretty impressive. I guess she did the soundtrack for Skyrim and a couple other things too (or tracks from same). Don't know much about her but it seemed like something brand new / not cut from the same cloth all the other synth stuff is. Plus I'm getting old so you know... orchestral and violin type stuff now taking over my brain. One day I might actually listen to "real music" from real orchestras.

...into the light of a dark black night.

Hell yes! YouTube is my my number one means of discovering new music. The fact that it's super easy just to send an URL to your friends or vice versa with no regard to what music services they are otherwise locked into makes it near perfect for this purpose.

Muse, on SNL (on my DVR - it's over now).

I dunno what they are playing yet, but it's funky as all hell. They could pass for a New Orleans band right now.

Re-Edit: Panic Station was the song. Great stuff!

Per 709's high praise, El-P C4C. Very awesome.

Looking for other stuff to listen to. Anyone an Rdio user? I'd love to have some sort of a network or something to share tunes with.

I added you.

I've had this fun. song in my head "when we were young" or something like that.

Rdio doesn't seem much different from Spotify but since my wife is always using our Spotify account when she's carpooling 3 five year olds, I need something else to listen to.

This El-P album is fucking awesome. I worry I may be playing a bit too loud in my car while picking up my daughter. But I haven't seen any funny looks directed my way yet.

Preach it brother.

If you like C4C, then definitely pick up "I'll Sleep When You're Dead" and the recent Megamixx. The stuff before that kind've blends into Cannibal Ox territory - not bad at all - some songs are arguably just as good - but just not as insanely well thought-out as these.

Also, loud is what these albums are made for. They are a delicious wash.

So it goes.

My 2 year-old was swaying and singing to this song immediately. She's got good taste and some rhythm.

I just attended the Love for Levon concert last month in NJ. It was a nice farewell for a great man and musician. It is going to be released on DVD/Blu-Ray/iTunes early next year.
