Here's my current list of bands I will continue to bankroll/fund their grand kids education;
Boards of Canada
The Chemical Brothers
I just listened to Godspeed You! Black Emporer's Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven all the way through yesterday, and it is seriously among the best albums I have ever heard. It's instantly become a favorite album of all time for me, and instantly has sky-rocketed to the top of my albums-to-get list. I can't even describe how good it is.
Well I now have all the Pole albums I want on CD, all Echospace albums, the entire Gas album output, considering buying all the Basic Channel singles.
A week ago today, I was at the record store. Now, you see, I have all but two Radiohead albums. I've been able to buy The Bends before, but I passed on it for something else whenever I saw it. Up until last week, I had never seen a physical copy of Kid A, my favorite album of all time. Last week, a guy was looking through the Radiohead section and I saw the digital mountain-scape that makes the album's cover. I literally felt my eyes widen at the sight of it. I waited until he was done, and then I pounced on it, even though, deep down, I knew that I couldn't get it. I just wanted to hold that album in my hands for the first time.
I couldn't get it because it was vinyl. I cried myself to sleep that night.

Bad Fabby. >:I
I can't wait for Daft Punk's new album, just hope it won't be like "Human After All". xD

On my wish list currently is a whole bunch of DJ mixes that look interesting.
I listened to Neurosis's Times of Grace all the way through yesterday and now I want it badly. There's something about the sonic aesthetic of this album in particular that makes it special to me among Neurosis's repertoire. Neurosis began as a hard-core punk band in the mid-to-late '80s but in the early-to-mid '90s they metamorphosed into one of the first post-metal bands ever (nearly a decade before people like Isis and Rosetta showed up), and so there weren't any guide-lines for their style. Eventually, their sound settled into really slow-paced metal with hard-core punk influences (i.e., sludge metal, which if you know me you'd recognize as one of my favorite styles of metal) and some of the quiet passages that have now become a staple of post-metal, but infused with folk stylings such as the use of bagpipes.
My point is, Times of Grace, to me, has the perfect balance of slow, extreme metal and more delicate moments that help make the metallic parts feel even heavier. I want it.
