While I enjoyed Tokyo Police Clubs second album I still found their first one to be superior

He looks like an absolute asshole dressed like that. Not that great of a song (so far) either. Anyway...
Yeah, I'm worried he's going in the wrong direction. I'm glad he's trying new things and trying to keep his fresh unique feel, but he's starting to leave the department of original and enter the zone of pretentiousness and inacessibility. I don't mind his somewhat hipsterish fashion so long as he can remain fun and gangsta' as shit.

New El-P track from his latest EP, Weareallgoingtoburninhellmegamixxx3.

It's a really crunchy instrumental. Can't wait for him to get his new album out the door, it's been forever since I'll Sleep When You're Dead.

I'm saddened that I was not aware of this band sooner. They make me wonder what other Scottish indie rock bands sound like. Also ever since my friend broke his leg this song has taken on new meaning for me.

Furia - Zgnij?, nie odpowiem!

This is a fairly new band from Poland I stumbled across. They don't do anything really new, but they re-combine a nice mix of black metal basics in a refreshing way. Nice combo of melodic, depressive and avantgarde elements with decent songwriting sense. I love the way it builds to the bouncy, bright, epic outro. First time in a long time that I've enjoyed some random BM track I've come across.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNWAvHSP5gwAxis of Advance - Cube of Odium

I'll never get tired of Axis of Advance. This is an atmospheric death/doom metal track, from a concept album about a man who goes destructively insane in an orwellian technological dystopia. Upon his 'awakening'/mental collapse, the protagonist begins to defy the regime by going on a killing spree. The agents of the regime then visit him and give him a list of more nameless workers to kill. Devastated that his defiance broke no boundaries, he determines to defy them all again by quietly refusing to kill anyone. This track recounts the aftermath of that decision, whereby the masters simply lock the man's domicile door, cut off his water and subject him to extremes of temperature, as he falls apart, starving and mad in his own waste.

Obvious highlight is the fantastic drum motif which signposts the song changing gears mid way, but also the plaintive line just before that from 2:19 -
"Where are they? / Have they forgotten me? /
I was their worker / I did it good for them... :( /
Cube of Odium"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CYRq1KmCGA

Listening to Astro's Midday Moon right now. Pretty decent, though I'm not fond of the chorus wailing and it goes in some pretty dumb techno sounding editing directions. Great lyrics, per usual, and more of them than usual, which is saying a ****ing lot.

This song always brings me peace and clears my mind. From 1:00 in to the end is simply phenomenal.

You're right, songs and other things for that matter, can have an effect on you like no other based on a memory relating to that song or activity simply because it corresponds to that memory. If that makes sense. I'm sorry to hear about your friend.

I'm pretty into Africa at the moment.

@Warped Yes son! Good starting point for Radiohead. Soooon you'll be listening to the likes of Kid A/Amnesiac, but it takes some adjusting.

Try The Bends - the other excellent "rock" album of theirs.
