I'm also still loving the Shins "Wincing" album. And LCD Soundsystem's "Sound of Silver" is kicking much ass on the ol' iPod.

The Go have two relatively new vinyl singles that I've ripped and have been playing a lot. All four songs are killer. I'm hoping the new album will be great.

And I'm really late to the party on this one, since it came out last year, but I simply can't stop playing the Art Brut album, "Bang, Bang Rock and Roll." Really great stuff. Very funny lyrics. They're no gag band, though. Can not wait for their next album.

Johnny Loftus says it is: Short stack of cool - The Go's latest, its influences and you.

The new LCD Soundsystem is aboslutely brilliant, definitely better than the last one. Panda Bears's Person Pitch is also phenomonal, both of those will be on my top 10 come December. I've enjoyed the new Ted Leo as well, but it hardly matches up to his better work, it is enjoyable though. I like Modest Mouse's new one too. It was exactly what I expected; an album extremely similar to Good News in both quality and sound. I also finally got I'm From Barcelona's excellent pop gem Let Me Introduce My Friends. I love it, but I'm upset with myself for not getting it sooner.

I haven't been able to really get into the LCD or Panda Bear albums. I like them, they both sound good, but I'm not hearing where all the praise comes from. Maybe they'll both click for me at some point.

And yeah, Wincing the Night Away is great. Has anyone seen the live videos on the Take Out blog?

Circuit-bend that shit baby! "Camptown Races" is a killer cut, but my heartwill always belong to "Cockels and Mussels."

It's taken me me a little while to dig the new Arcade Fire, but Neon Bible's been in my heavy rotation recently.

Apostle of Hustle's National Anthem of Nowhere also been spinning a lot (and I've seen them twice already this year, woo)....as has The Besnard Lakes are the Dark Horse by, uh, the Besnard Lakes. The latter is fantastic...I put it on to study to but end up tranced out listening to some heavy guitar line, which maybe isn't the greatest in the long run but is pretty awesome in the right now. Oh, and Friend and Foe - Menomena is a new favourite too.

How are AoH live? I love "Justine, Reckoning" and "Chances Are." Both seem like fun songs to hear live.

Ever the music snob, I've always been partial to "Clair de Lune".
