I have just joined an early 90s Grunge covers band so I am listening to all the classics of the era to learn al the drum parts.

Otherwise I am listening to Periphery.

Looking through my collection it makes me realise how many I am actually missing.

Thanks - I might check that out; I heard The Hazards of Love a couple of times at a mate's and while I enjoyed the music the themes were a bit too dark for my taste.

My recent listens:

Janelle Monae - ArchAndroid
Laura Marling - I speak because I can
Anna Ternheim - Somebody outside
Goldfrapp - Seventh wave
Stackridge - The man in the bowler hat

Great album, also Bay of Pigs track is on there (despite being out of place, but no way am I paying £50+ for a physical copy of that).... music video for Kaputt is good too...

Also been listening too:
- Adele : 21 - Well it's not as bad as Duffy's Endlessly, but I'm hating her just saying "yeah this song is about my ex boyfriend who was an ASLAS{"QE@Qsasd'asdsa" ... yawn - still wanting to listen to it more, but pleasant enough.

- Hercules & Love Affair : Blue Songs (Streamable from Guardian website: http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musi...air-blue-songs) - Loving it at moment, saw them at Heaven too last week, great gig... unfortunately no great hits like Blind or You Belong, but still great album.

- Esben and the Witch : Violet Cries (Stream : http://stereogum.com/623072/stream-e...premiere/mp3s/ ) - one of those nice albums (feels rewarding to listen to it in its full length).. do need to give it a few more listens though.

Awaiting for the new Cut Copy album to come through my door ..

Doesn't seem to be that good on first listen!

Quite enjoying new albums by The Streets and Chapel Club at the mo', but still to firm up my opinion a bit (i.e. could change).

After my TV got taken away to be serviced/fixed and finding the below YouTube videos I've been getting back into hardcore/gabba.

On Monday got about 10hrs of Masters of Hardcore podcasts from iTunes and have been playing them all day and into the evening!

I now want to go here:

TBH, I haven't listened to it that much and just kind of in the background. A review will up on TMF within the next week. I don't expect to end up liking it as much as the first two albums, but I think I could end up liking it more than 3 and 4 (both of which I consider okay).

I just listened to what I assume to be the single...possibly the worst thing he has released in my opinion. (I have only listened to it twice though)

I am currently listening to an old Kiss FM Mastermix from 1983!

Absolutely stunning stuff!

If that's the 'rock' tune with the guy from the music then i agree.

Not heard the single any more than I've heard the rest of the album, but it doesn't stand out as one of the better tracks.

I heard and really liked Buy Nothing Day this morning so I checked out a preview stream of the album at the Guardian. While I liked it it sounded very 'compressed' to my ears (like tracks do on FM radio) and felt a bit too in my face (ears). Not sure if this is the album or the stream, though.

Go! Team records always sound like their coming from an radio. It's their sound although obviously the cd will sound better than a web stream.

The first track is mixed very loud though it seems to calm down after that.
