Got to admit it's a genre I haven't explored at all. I'm aware there's quite substantial differences between various types of music along those lines despite how some people lump them together, like IDM and electronica, but I couldn't tell you what's what.

Some of the electronic stuff that 65 Days Of Static have brought into their post-rock is pretty enjoyable and interesting.

I need to flesh out my REM collection. I actually don't have Life's Rich Pageant, believe it or not. It's the one eighties REM album I don't have. And post-Automatic, all I've got is Monster.

Led Zep doesn't interest me.

Yeah, I divide it between Electronica (Moby), Industrial (Nine Inch Nails), and Dance (LCD Soundsystem) myself. Maybe you can start off with a band like M83 and go from there. I could see you liking the first two artists I mentioned, too.

Frus going into Rob's favorite band was terrific. Love both songs, too.

Time Goes Back (which I personally didn't care all that much for, it's OK)--->Don't Panic is a wonderful segue. Hats off to you.

Up is great, like El-Mel said, and New Adventures in Hi-Fi is their last album with Bill Berry - really great album, too.

Great transition going into "Eleanor," a Franz track I've thought about using from time to time.

Don't Panic is a nice little tune.

Ooh, I've liked what I've heard of M83, and reviews of their stuff seem to almost always be glowing, so I should get around to listening to them. I know I've heard Moby and NIN songs around, but I couldn't tell you what I thought of them. And yeah, the LCD Soundsystem tracks in past DIs haven't done a whole lot for me.

I bet PFan's going to incur Rob's wrath for that tracklist choice.

Eleanor is a very good song, and it kept the pace right, I'll give it that.

I'm going to receive numerous sarcastic posts and laughing smilies for it.

In LCD's defense, most of what's been used comes from the more rock-oriented album, Sound of Silver, not the more dance-heavy eponymous album.

Loved the transition going into "Over the Hills..." I remember that being one of my favorite parts of El-Mel's first list, too.

Cool. I'm just loading Sordo now, to see what REM and M83 they have. Might as well start there.

Definitely I'm in a mood right now to discover music that isn't blindingly obviously up my alley. I have plenty of metal, post-rock, Dunedin Sound stuff, and it's probably why Tinariwen's "desert blues" has so captivated me these last few days - it is completely different to my usual fare.
