    I like the Arctic Monkeys. I had no clue who they were a couple of months ago, but I'm glad I discovered them.

    I've been refurbishing my playlist with The Hold Steady, Tokyo Police Club, and a bunch of classic rock, particularly The Clash.

    For years I dismissed "London Calling" as overrated. I never really "got it" initially. But over time it grew to be one of my top 5 "If you were stranded on a desert island" picks. Absolute brilliance. And must be played LOUD.

    "Where's the ocean's daughter
    Was Peter Pan in Mordor
    No one's there to keep alive
    All these fairy tales
    May I return to Oz
    Will I meet the "Tin Man"
    "Coward Lion" where are you
    Without brain the scarecrow's lost
    In the middle of the lake
    Stranded in the real world
    Left in the world
    No place for daydreams
    Serious life
    I fall into
    I fall into a dark hole
    And I can't come out
    Do you know if Merlin did exist
    Or Frodo wore the ring
    Did Corum kill the gods
    Or where's the wonderland
    Which young Alice had seen
    Or was it just a dream
    I knew the answers
    Now they're lost for me
    Imaginations from the other side"

    Whatever People Say I Am Thats What I'm Not is one of my all-time faves. Haven't been as in love with their more pop-oriented sound of late...

    Re: What am I listening to? (Part II)

    I finally got the Beck album (Beck did not make enough copies of this album!!) and I have to say I don't think I'm as into it as most everybody else. Maybe I was building it up too much in my head or am comparing it (unfavorably) too much to Sea Change. I think it's fine, it's just not blowing me away. Pretty but maybe a little bland. Maybe I just need to listen to it more.

    For the last several months my obsession has been Josh White. If you don't know him, you guys have to look this guy up or at least read his wikipedia page..just a jaw-dropping life story. From Jim Crow life to BFFs with the Roosevelts, gospel singing, fleeing McCarthyism, you name it. Krazy Glue was invented for his fingernails!! What?!?

    I had known his cover of Waltzing Matilda for years but that was about it. Then last summer I picked up a live album of his for a dollar and it was just incredible. He followed a similar musical formula for a lot of his songs, but was an absolutely arresting storyteller and very solid guitarist. The thing I've been listening to most recently is an album he did with Al Hall, which has a jazzier feel than a lot of his other stuff which veers bluesy and folky, and it's spectacular. I love this guy. Look him up.

    The Beck album doesn't GRAB you (outside of maybe Blue Moon) or have the novelty of being his first slow & dreary 'acoustic' album like Sea Change did...but it's pretty solid. I still listen to it on occasion and enjoyed it the more I listened. It's good background or headphone music that sneaks into your subconscious until you start recalling the melodies and craving certain songs.

    Been going back and listening to this album a lot. For some reason, it's sounds even better on rainy nights.

    I haven't listened to the new one but I'm glad you mentioned "slow & dreary" Sea Change. What a bore. Midnight Vultures was so excellent, but just too dang catchy for the High Fidelity types. I really hate the authenticity game with rock wags.

    1. Acoustic album? -- pure gold, dont' even need to listen to it.

    2. Harmonies? -- drivel, we can accept Pet Sounds but that's it.

    3. Gararge rock? --- fantastic, always.

    4. High Production? -- terrible, until maybe 30 years later when it can be celebrated (i.e. Phil Spector)

    5. Danceable? -- we don't dance.

    I love both Midnite Vultures and Sea Change; they're easily my two favorite Beck albums in fact. What does that do to your algorithm?

    I don't know what you mean by the "authenticity game" exactly. Sometimes people just like what they like. I am more into music than just about anything else, probably, but I really balk at the accusation of being a snob or an assumption that whatever I happen to like or not like comes from anything but a place of sincerity. Modren garage rock, "fantastic, always"? I worship the Strokes, loathe the White Stripes. I can specify reasons why if asked, but it's really just a matter of taste.
