Return To The Planet Of Heavy Rotation

Postby Mixmaster Shecky » Mon Feb 23, 2009 4:25 pm

Haven't coughed up one of these threads in a while, so: what are youse guys putting on the heavy rotation these days?

Me, I've been spinning Vampire Weekend, Muse 'Black Holes & Revelations', and for some reason, the Minutemen's 'Double Nickels On The Dime' (Not that Double Nickels isn't worthy of heavy rotation, but iI haven't listened to it in a while and suddenly, apropos of nothing, I must now listen to it at least several times a day).

How's 'bout you, GloNoids? What's heating up yr iPods and such lately?

Blitzen Trapper - Furr. GLONO piece coming soon. But catch them live if you can. In some ways similar to a Being There-era Wilco with more of a Dead influence and occasional flourishes of weird analog synth. Sometimes Dylanesque, sometimes Shins-y. Mostly really good.

I am enjoying the Gaslight Anthem very much these days. Also liking Kings of Leon Only by the Night. Also have been spinning a couple old Tom Waits CDs a lot lately (Closing Time and Heart of Saturday Night).

I'll back both Gaslight Anthem and Blitzen Trapper.

I've been catching up on the Okkervil River back catalog and listening VERY heavily to the new M. Ward, which is fantastic.

Also, the "Holland" half of Beirut's new EP is great.

I've been listening to a lot of Charles Hamilton's mixtapes.

Count Bass D's "Dwight Spitz" album is clever, catchy, window-rattling hip hop.

Laura Nyro, who I just heard in a years-old episode of Six Feet Under but am now hooked on (check out "Poverty Train")

Any big fans willing to rate his catalog from most essential album to least?

I've been over-listening to (of all things) a sampler I picked up at Newbury Comics for a label called Bloodshot Records. Ryan Adams, Alejandro Escovedo, Old 97's, plus a bunch of bands I don't know...it's like having a solid alt-country playlist on my iPod...

The New Year - The New Year (red cover) is excellent.
Wire's Pink Flag & Chairs Missing

African Pearls: Senegal

It starts off with some traditional stuff, but the last half can only be described as witch doctor rock and roll. It's total genius!
