    I've been listening to Värähtelijä by Oranssi Pazuzu, it's some kind of brooding rock/metal fusion. I'm not sure I love it, it's a bit cold and alien, but it's certainly appealing.

    Otherwise Kings Of Convenience, it's some very smooth acoustic guitar and voice duo. I've been listening to their two first albums for almost 20 years (a girl gave it to me in high-school) and I still like it, it's not revolutionary but it's solid.

    I've noticed most of my favorite podcasts post at either the beginning or end of the week, leaving a chasm of silence in the middle.

    I'm tired of informative, or overly produced "smart" podcasts and much prefer some easy listening. I feel dumb for admitting it, but its just exhausting when you listen to podcast after podcast of brainy stuff with really dry voices and the repeatedly hearing about the same consumerist crap they need to peddle.

    I tried listening to live radio this week. Its also littered with commercials, and got exhausting after a while, but it was nice not having to worry about what comes on next, and they people at least try to sound interesting. I listened to stations from towns I've thought about visiting or moving to, and got a nice slice of what life could be like in different areas. I don't think live radio will be a replacement for podcasts but it might be a useful addition.

    I have been listening to the outstanding new record CeeLo Green is Thomas Callaway. It's a rich and uplifting soulful album where CeeLo just knocks it out of the park.

    Been going through a lot of Haywyre's music again recently, specifically relistening to his two-fold Two Fold album (heh) and his more recent Panorama EPs. I can't really explain what it is but I find he has such a unique sound and style I've not come across before. That and he's a god on the piano.

    A bit of Blood Incantation, really great Sci-Fi themed Death Metal. Just finishing up their latest album then onto some Mithras, same deal as Blood Incantation as far as lyrics are concerned but a much older band.

    I've been enjoying Gotan Project's La Revancha del Tango. It fuses tango with electronic music and does it very well, in my opinion, it's really cool how both genres blend seamlessly throughout...

      I liked it back in the days, it has this modern feel from the electronics but still feels very acoustic and "real".
