Updated daily: What is Todd listening to today?
I'll be updating this little thread daily, as it's always something different. Maybe you'll get an idea of where the heck I'm coming from. Or maybe you'll discover a new favorite band. Or maybe you'll say, "Hey! I like that too! Maybe I should check these guys out!!!"

Anyway, here's what I am listening to today (8/9/07):
Café Tacvba - Un Viaje
Massive Attack - Mezzanine
Son Volt - The Search

It'll get more interesting, day-by-day (I hope).
Any questions about something? Drop me a line and I'll be more than happy to tell you all about it.

I listen to music at work.
Easy enough with a desk job that has no client contact, and a tolerant boss who doesn't mind me wearing headphones.

It's pretty much the ONLY time that I get to listen to the music that I want.

I love that album. The extremes. Mark Hollis' voice is spectacular. Can't understand a word but it feels so good going in the ear.

And of course Barrett. I love "If It's In You" - "Yes I'm thiiiii-i-i*%+#^ Look I, you know I was... start again..." yum yum yum... Poor guy.

I haven't been following this thread too much Todd because as I've told you I'm sure I don't own any music myself and don't recognise many of the names. Do you hear this stuff on the radio or do you have a huge private collection or do you borrow it from the library. Also do you listen to anything twice on this list. Also how do you decide what to play. Also are you going to keep this thread going for 365 days or will you run out before that and start repeating yourself. Finally when do you do all this listening? :) Jilly x

-I have a huge private collection. Maybe too big, if there is such a thing.

Also do you listen to anything twice on this list.
-Not in a single day.

Also how do you decide what to play.
-As the mood strikes me. Sometimes I let the kids pick my music for the day.

Also are you going to keep this thread going for 365 days or will you run out before that and start repeating yourself.
-If I can.

Oh, I think that's "Miles From Monday" and I have no idea as to what the effect was. Thought it was just some kind of overdrive or something, but then, I'm no audio engineer.

And I did listen to your tracks; they took me back to my college days and this band from St. Louis that I used to like called The Unconscious. Solid.

Well, you made a very good album, Steve. And I'm not the only one in my family who thinks so; the wife and kids dig it, too.

I wholeheartedly agree with you on the album-listening tip. Things are going back to the 1950's singles-era. But on the other hand, artists do have more freedom than they did back then, to release what they want, how they want. So, it's a give and take. (Still, I prefer listening to albums.)

Why not?
Even though this one only started in August.

On Jan. 1 (or 2, as the case may be) I'll start the 2008 edition.
It's fun to think that folks are actually curious as to what I'm listening to.

How can you pick a favorite on The Harder They Come?
Every time I listen to it I have a different one. Today I think it's "Rivers Of Babylon"

And here's an analogy for you:
Toots Hibbard is the Otis Redding to Jimmy Cliff's Sam Cooke.
Two of the greatest voices in rocksteady, if not of all time.

You can listen to Bonzo without sequeing into the Rutles?

Although, you know, I do have a $15 gift card to iTunes!

There were no Rutles albums at iTunes.
But there was a Daniel Johnston album that I had been looking for.
Oh, and DJ is an IAC artist, too!:

No joke.
I am, and have been a fan for a very long time.

Maybe his vocals take some getting used to, but he is an amazing songwriter. Check out the tribute record tha came out a couple of years ago. Listen to versons of his songs by: Beck, Death Cab For Cutie, Tom Waits, Pearl Jam, Bright Eyes, Teenage Fanclub, and a kabillion more that would make your head spin.

Happy New Year, y'all!!!
Today, all I'm listening to is what's left over from my stash on Friday; so, basically nothing new to report.

I'll start a new listening blog on Wednesday.

Hope y'all have a great one and you enjoyed reading some of these little posts.
