In light of dim2192's list of music he's listening to, and the fact that I've been listening to most of it, I thought I would make a short 5er of what I've listened to/been listening to recently that is excellent.
Death Cab for Cutie - Narrow Stairs: Listened to this for the first time today. I take back everything bad I've ever said about Death Cab. This CD is great, and any Death Cab fans who didn't like that 'I Will Possess Your Heart' had a 4 minute instrumental intro can die. That practically enhances the song's excellence by a billion.
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless: I've been listening to this CD so much lately, it's almost scary. This is just one of the best albums I've ever heard. It flows so perfectly.
Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation: Basically what I said for Loveless, applies here.
Soundgarden - Louder Than Love: Great old school Soundgarden. Loud Love, Full On Kevin's Mom. Great stuff.
No Age - Nouns: This might be one of the best albums that came out in 2008 that nobody heard of. I don't really know who to compare it to. It's good, though. It's really good.
Alright, I'm done.
