I think what stops me from liking them more than I do is their male lead singer's bland generic voice. I do like Neko Case however, just started to dig into her solo output,

Speaking further of purging... I really tried to get into The Smiths' first album and I just can't. "The Queen Is Dead" is one of my favourite albums of all time but apart from three or four songs, I find their self-titled a total bore. And Morrissey's falsetto on the third track makes me want to reach out and rip his vocal chords out,

Keep me posted on this. I've liked the 30 second clips I've heard on iTunes.

I've seen Liars live twice in the last 6 months. Even if you don't like their music, they're extremely entertaining live. Hopefully Radiohead fans will be open minded, as I think a lot of people will at least enjoy watching them. They're opening because Thom absolutely loves them. I've seen him mention them in a number of different articles, and he blabbered on about them in his iTunes celebrity playlist a year or so ago.

Drums Not Dead is a great album, one of my favorites of 2006, though admittedly not for everyone (it's a concept album, and a strange one at that, but it's EXTREMELY unique musically). Their most recent self-titled album is oddly more accessible and diverse than Drums, but probably not as interesting. The two times I've seen them, they mainly played from these two albums, with a few tracks from their other couple albums/EPs.

If anyone wants any Liars track recommendations, I'm more than happy to help. Here's their awesome video to Houseclouds (not one of their best songs or even a good example of their sound, but the video is hilarious in all the right/wrong ways):

I'll check out the vid when I get home. I'll be seeing them five times, so I hope I like them better than suck-o-rama No Doubt. Who I had to sit through three or four times.

It is impossible to dance the way they do in those itunes/ipod commercials without the lousy earphones falling off.

If you're using the white Apple earbuds like the commercial, no wonder! Those things wouldn't stay in your ears if your pores secreted Krazy Glue instead of sweat.

Yeah but that's what they show those silhouettes wearing! At least that's what it looks like to me.

In an attempt to save this thread from page 2, I will let you guys know about the three random albums I've been devouring for the last week or so:

The Last Shadow Puppets - The Age of the Understatement - (Alex Turner, lead singer of Arctic Monkeys, side project featuring production by James Ford who has worked with Arcade Fire. Nothing too amazing here, but I'm a fan of Turner's and there are some nice James Bond movie/60's soundscapes here.)

Deerhoof - Friend Opportunity - (The noises! The beautiful noises! This band is crazy and really, really cool.)

Mudcrutch - Mudcrutch - (Tom Petty and Mike Campbell's band before they became the Heartbreakers...it's taken them 30 years to record a debut album and it doesn't fucking disappoint. Admittedly, I love me some Petty. But the stuff here is great. Really classic vibe. Sounds like the songs were written at midnight, after a few beers, on the backporch of a house somewhere in Louisiana during the 70's. And it sounds like the Allman brothers were on that same backporch playing guitar. Kickass country rock style!)


Anyone heard any of this stuff? Care to give some feedback? Cool, thanks.

The Mudcrutch record sounds good for 30 seconds at a time on iTunes. Target was soldout last night.

I listened to Aphex Twin's Drukqs again today
and that album is actually even a lot better than I already thought it was
