Friday Music Report

According to my Last.fm profile, I listened to the following music last week:
  1. The Arcade Fire
  2. Pulp
  3. Elvis Costello & The Attractions
  4. The Mekons
  5. R.E.M.
  6. Swervedriver
  7. The Wedding Present
  8. Broken Social Scene
  9. Pavement
  10. Joy Division
Also according to form. A few words about last week's number one (it will likely be this week's as well). I've been previewing Neon Bible, The Arcade Fire album that will be available March 6. I don't usually use imperative statements on this space, but this one merits it: buy this album. Don't hesitate. Don't worry about a sophomore slump. Just buy it.

Friday Music Report

According to my Last.fm profile, I listened to the following music the most last week:
  1. Pulp
  2. Echo & The Bunnymen
  3. ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
  4. Pavement
  5. Neko Case
  6. My Morning Jacket
  7. Supergrass
  8. Wilco
  9. The Delgados
  10. R.E.M.
That looks like a return to form after a couple of very odd musical weeks for me.

Friday Music Report

According to my Last.fm user profile, I listened to the following music the most last week:
  1. Afghan Whigs
  2. Kanye West
  3. Ted Leo and The Pharmacists
  4. Led Zeppelin
  5. The Shins
  6. R.E.M.
  7. Nas
  8. ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead
  9. Game Theory
  10. Sufjan Stevens
Some surprises there for sure--both for me and for my readers who know me as well. Oh well, what shuffle sometimes reveals about a music library can be surprising. The two that surprise me the most are Kanye West and Led Zeppelin, because I certainly didn't seek them out, nor can I remember hearing them that much (though I can remember hearing "When the Levee Breaks" at a very opportune moment last week).

I Suck

There's no way avoiding it. I suck. I can't seem to find time to update ye olde FlannelEnigma. I keep hoping that work life will settle a bit, and I can find time to post a bit more. I owe you all, at the very least, a review of the Yo La Tengo show last Saturday night. It's coming, I promise.

As for all the very salacious and interesting occurrences around us, I hope to get back to that. Quick note: how stupid does Boston's city government look. I am Errr, feel my fury, but not that kind of fury. Of course there is always USA v. Mexico in about 20 hours. My guess is despite the rabid Mexico support in Arizona, the best they'll manage is a draw. Call it 1-1.

NP: absolutely nothing

  1. X
  2. The Wrens
  3. R.E.M.
  4. Echo & the Bunnymen
  5. Radiohead

Also, I apologize for the dearth of posts lately. Even though there's been a lot to talk about recently (especially the cluelessness of a certain New England city when it comes to Lite-Brites), I've been pretty busy at work. Hopefully, normal posting will resume soon. At the very least, music reports will continue.
