Very impressed with the live show. If you ever have the chance of seeing them live you have to, it was flawless.

kind of like spitting: maybe i'm biased because they're my favorite band, but i got the new cd "in the red" this past week and it's magnificent. definitely check it, or anything by them, out if you haven't yet.

all-time quarterback: ben gibbard's (death cab/postal service) old band. side-band? whatever. either way, i've been listening to it a lot.

of montreal: they're fun. like the shins/the decemberists fun type of fun. i can't get enough.

others worth mentioning:
belle and sebastian
tilly and the wall
les savy fav

and chai. i recommend chai. it's tea that tastes like christmas!

Good choices! I love kind of like spitting and all time quarterback! you are the best..

its a pretty much a badly kept internet rumor that he's on coke

well when he was in seattle couple months ago when circa played with gatsbys, he was totally on something. he left the stage in the middle of one song, and came back, then his nose started to bleed out of nowhere. and he didnt even know it.

Music:
Rufus Wainwright: One of my all-time favorite musicians and a very entertaining performer. I saw his last weekend and had a blast. Cabaret/Chamber Pop/Piano Pop sort of thing. Check out: Gay Messiah, Go Or Go Ahead, Crumb By Crumb, Beauty Mark

Nick Drake: I wish we had more of this music before his death. Amazing musician. You should know who he is, but if you don't think something along the lines of Elliot Smith with a little more subtlety for his later albums with more of a jazz influence on his first one. Songs: At The Chime Of A City Clock, Time Has Told Me, Place To Be, Road

Bonnie 'Prince' Billy / Matt Sweeny (Superwolf): Recently got more into this. Great stuff. William Oldham is just indescribable. Check out: My Home Is The Sea

Magnetic Fields: The first disc of 69 Love Songs is one of my favorite set of 23 song playlists. Their other stuff is great, too. Peppy pop goodness. Check Out: A Chicken With Its Head Cut Off, All My Little Words, I Think I need a new Heart.

Damien Rice (O): Just listened to this for the first time in a while and fell in love again. We need a follow-up. Songs: Older Chests, Amie

The Good Life: I finally got Album Of The Year. You should, too. Tim Kasher is unstoppable.

Movies:
Airplane!: One of the funniest movies of all time. "And don't call me Shirley."

Simpsons DVDs: Great for (not) doing Quantum homework.

Websites:
http://www.elliottsmithbsides.com/index2.html

Misc:
Coffee! Lots and lots of coffee!

Recommendations:

Minus the Bear: It's been a while since I truly listened to them, so I pulled out the backcataloge(You know... going to their spot on iTunes) and listened. They are fucking incredible and anyone who wants an album of the year, it may very well be Menos El Oso.

Bear Vs Shark: I've said it once, and I'll say it again, EVERYONE needs to see this band live and pick up Terrorhawk. The last CD was great, but not for everyone. Well this one, while still as out there as before is just so amazing that I think everyone can get into them. That and they are entertaining as hell, especially when trading Anchorman quotes back and forth with me.

Circa Survive: Just cause they are one of my favorite bands right now and they always blow me away. I don't give a shit about that other "blow" he might be on. I've seen them three times, talked to them twice and they never seemed any different.

Chiodos: Everyone should listen to this and their older shit. God they are amazing so go check them out.

Asia Minor: My friends band. Anyone who's heard of Aeris probably knows who they are, but you should all go give them a listen, especially if you're into Head Automatica. Http://www.myspace.com/asiaminorny

The Morning Of: I know they get a little love from this site, but they are such nice kids. Their new record is up on Smartpunk(Along with Asia Minor's) and their CD release show is tonight in Newburgh(Also with Asia Minor). If you're in the area you should totally come out. you should also give them love.

Boysnightout: Cause as much as I love the new Thrice I think this is stilled tied for album of the year with MTB.

mount eerie - phil elverum is amazing.

local bands:
vanna - don't rip on these guys. i love them to pieces.
therefore i am - vanna's best friends. listen or die.
the cadence - they're out of commission for a while until they find a new drummer, but wait until they come back.
faraway - eeeeeeeeee! they make me smile. as does their new intro.
the northwood - listen to "the street." i love this song.

the end.

xoxo conor
