What I've Been Listening To... Saturday Edition

I've been up since 5 AM working on a client project that I just wrapped. I have to admit that while I once resisted iTunes I'm now a full-time fan and love being able to just put the thing on shuffle and have it pick from the nearly 8000 songs I have loaded.

Here's what was offered up lately:
Recent Downloads:
I downloaded the first two discs because they're getting a lot of acclaim as being among the best albums (do we still call them that?) of the year. I like about half of the last New Pornographers release, but I really liked that half so I'm willing to give this new one a go. I know I've heard a Ted Leo song here and there on a compilation but I didn't have any albums until now.

As for Pulp, Edgar Wright closed his radio guest spot with them the other day but the MP3 of the show cut off before the song started. Plus, eMusic gave it a write up in their best of indie pop article (or something like that, again, I've been up since 5 and I'm too lazy to go look). I only got the first disc of the set but if it's any good I'll pick up the other next month.

Thanks for linking to the song, ''Heroin Geek,'' on the Ultraviolet Eye web page! Anyone can click on it and hear or download it free.

You might actually dig The New Pornographers "Twin Cinema" more than this latest album... it's much more driving and relentlessly upbeat throughout.

Hmmm, interesting. I haven't had a chance to listen to the New Pornographers album yet but hopefully today.

You'll appreciate this... had a weird dream last night that I went to the Khyber and the 'Mats were there doing a secret show and showcasing stuff from their new CD. Weirdest part was that Matt Damon was their drummer!?
