I’m Out of Ideas and My Phone is Too…

  • Aimee Mann – Fucking Smilers
  • …And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead – Worlds Apart
  • Antony and the Johnsons – “Hope There’s Someone”  (Single song only, and it never comes off of my phone because sometimes I need to know that someone else feels that…even if we don’t have much else in common…)
  • Ben Folds – Rockin’ the Suburbs
  • Ben Folds – The Best Imitation of Myself
  • Ben Folds & Nick Hornby – Lonely Avenue (Seriously…again…thanks, Kaylene.)
  • Big Star – Nothing Can Hurt Me
  • Bob Mould – District Line
  • Bob Mould – Silver Age

  • Tegan & Sara – This Business of Art
  • Tegan & Sara – The Con

The stuff I’ve been listening to the most has been the Ben Folds (because it’s new to me), without a doubt.  I think I’ve played the “Lonely Avenue” record pretty much daily since I heard it the first time.  It’s just breath-taking.  Also been listening to Trail of Dead, Bob Mould, and Lou Reed’s “Magic & Loss” (which, though not exactly toe-tapping, might be the best work he ever did in his career).  The rest is stuff that’s either been regularly in the rotation recently, or that it’s just nice to have around in case I need it.
