I'm in love with the new Kings of Leon album. I've been listening to it in the car for the past couple of weeks & it's just awesome.

On Call

And for my own interests, album release dates of note:
Kings of Leon - Because of the Times - 3 April
Björk - Volta - 7 May
Smashing Pumpkins - Zeitgeist - 7 July

It's been a while since I recced some music, so I thought I'd throw up a couple of songs I really like at the moment while I wait for the Heroes torrent to appear. :)

Albert Hammond Jr - In Transit
Spangle Call Lilli Line - Set Me (I really love this song right now.)

Orange Range - Kirikirimai
TV on the Radio - Snakes & Martyrs

I downloaded Peaches' new album the other night, and this song made me think of the slashers on my flist.

Two Guys (For Every Girl)

Enjoy! :P

* watched all of season one of Battlestar Galactica in one sitting. Verdict: Awesome. Can't wait for more

* currently watching naruto. Up to episode 19. Verdict (so far): Awesome, hilarious, cute.

* starting to watch veronica mars, only up to episode 6 'cause it's kind of hard to find any at the moment. Verdict: Love it. I need more!

* trying out the free trial for City of Heroes. Verdict: Neat, but the best part is creating the costumes. :)

* recent albums bought/downloaded: Gorillaz (verdict: ok), Billy Corgan (verdict: reminds me of Adore, will grow on me, I'm sure), White Stripes (verdict: I like it, not as much as Elephant or De Stijl, but my opinion may change), Fat Freddy's Drop (verdict: definitely a lazy summer day album - best male vocalist *ever*. Sorry Che Fu.)

* saw Batman Begins today. Verdict: Awesome. Probably the best superhero origin movie ever.

* no iconning. Verdict: Catastrophe. Shall hunt for pictures to icon now.

May post again tonight if I get sufficiently bored.

Oh, look: rugby on tv. I hope the all-blacks win.

1. Regina Spektor - Samson (right click > save target as)
My second favourite Regina song - this one is just beautiful.

2. Ruby - Bud (right click > save target as)
This one is a (personal) classic & has the most awesome lyrics: I want some push to my shove / But your hand is in my glove / And I'm mad, bad, ripped raw and bleeding / Swinging like a beef hook on the hips of hell / And the stains on my boots say my life is going well / To snap your skinny neck in two / Would be the least that I could do

3. Kishore Kumar & Lata Mangeshkar - Seekhlo Seekhlo (right click > save target as)
I love me some crazy '60s Bollywood music. This song, though, is lovely. Plus - it's Lata Mangeshkar!

The music I'm listening to right now: total irony!

Quite possibly my favourite Björk b-side.
