The new Ladytron album (Velocifero). It's pretty fantastic, probably their best yet. If Runaway doesn't give you chills, the band is probably not for you.

The sounds are bolder than ever, the songwriting is subtle and powerful, and the bits from their early work that tended to annoy people (myself included, after an abusive amount of listening) are mostly absent.

Other favorites are Black Cat, Burning Up, Ghosts.

Anyway, we needed a general thread about music, so here it is.

all joking aside, i looked up lady tron on youtube cause quite frankly i've never heard of them before.

listened to a song called black cat. didn't love it, but i could definitelyappreciate their sound.

as far as modern female musicians go , this is one of my current faves:

Haha, wow, that's a bad video.

Anyway, you must at least sample the album on iTunes to hear what it actually sounds like. YouTube sound is so crappy/misleading for stuff like this.

you know how when a college basketball team comes into a visiting stadium to play a game, and that visiting team is ranked way higher than they probably should be because it's early in the year or they haven't really been tested yet. Then the home team who isn't ranked at all starts beating their ass, you know what the crowd chants? OVER RATED, da da dadada, OVER RATED! that's how i feel about johnny cash.

i would have thought that you of all people would appreciate inside guild jokes. on the other hand, maybe you're just sick of all those "i've been everywhere man, i've been everywhere" commercials on TV. i know i am.

How can I appreciate an inside guild joke when I don't even know about it? lol

I've been catching up on some interesting music...

Ratatat's LP3 blew me away. Listen to the first 4 tracks and see if they don't win you over. Midnight Juggernauts' Dystopia is also fantastic, and I don't even like dance music. You should start from the beginning of the album (cause it's kind of a concept album) and note that track 13 (Aurora) is the final track, and the rest is actually bonus material. I like all the songs, but my favorites are Dystopia and Road to Recovery. The Dandy Warhols' Earth to the Dandy Warhols definitely takes some getting used to, but it's really really growing on me. Favorites are The Legend of the Last of the Outlaw Truckers, Valerie Yum, The World the People Together (Come On), and Mission Control.

I also listened to Portishead's Third (meh), Coldplay's Viva La Vida (bleh), and Sigur Ros's new one... get ready for it... Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust. I'm a huge Sigur Ros fan, but this one was pretty much only 2/3 good and kinda disappointing. Sort of a step backward, actually.

Please tell me if I'm wrong about any of this.
