A rare unranked list.

Bands that should probably be among my all-time favorites but I just haven't/don't spent enough time with them yet:

Swans
The Jezabels
Tame Impala
Suede
PJ Harvey
Fiona Apple
Tindersticks
Modest Mouse
Robyn Hitchcock
Kate Bush
Fugazi
The Church
Mew
Broadcast
The Gaslight Anthem
The Sound
The Chameleons
Spirit
D'Angelo
Fucked Up
Caribou/Manitoba
Jorge Ben

Really just typing this out so I can refer to it later. It's further proof that there are not enough hours in a day for great music.

I really need to hear more Chameleons, but all of their albums are $30 imports. I thank Axver for including them on his DI.

This has to be the best one ever. Seriously though, I love that song so much.

Okkervil River Song would be on my list. Love that song a ton too.

I can't get a license
To drive in my car
But I don't really need it
If I'm a Big Star

By the way, I'm surprised an AFI fan didn't include Keeping Out of Direct Sunlight in the list.

That song depresses the hell out of me, considering that the lead singer killed himself...it makes me angry whenever I hear him sing these lines:

I thought that pain and truth were things that really mattered
But you can't stay here with every single hope you had shattered


Followed by

In a big country dreams stay with you
Like a lover's voice fires the mountainside
Stay alive


It's kind of a "dude, take your own advice you fucking hypocrite" situation for me.

I suppose I'm more of a "fan" of AFI than anything else. I still haven't heard more than their last three albums

Sheesh, I had no clue he'd killed himself.

You should really check out the AFI albums, Black Sails In the Sunset and Art of Drowning, seems like the type of albums you might enjoy. That was when they completely worked in the goth aesthetic completely (there are a few songs on the album before that, Shut Your Mouth And Open Your Eyes, that drifted in the path, the song I mentioned above included). Those two albums are still pretty special to me, they were on to crazily unique sound at the time. I remember hearing the track, "Malleus Maleficarum" for the first time and saying something like, "This sounds like a hardcore punk version of The Cure" to my roommate.

Also, perfect time of the year to give the All Hallows EP a listen. Were it not for that EP's artwork, I may have never looked into the band.

I have had Black Sails on my list of things to listen to forever. I think I'll fix that tonight.

Somehow or another, I have seen that EP cover before. Yeah, I need to familiarize myself with them more, because I do love them.
