    1. I saw it, but I'm not really familiar with the Strokes, so after listening to a few songs, I moved on.

      Plus, there weren't any Meat Puppets covers on it, and what the hell is a tribute album without the Meat Puppets?

  6. Lots of repeats today

    1. Secret Machines are one of my favorite summer/driving bands. Roll down the windows and turn up the volume all the way.

  7. 1. Christina Aguilera “What a Girl Wants” Keeps Getting Better—A Decade of Hits
    2. Coil “The Sleeper” How to Destroy Angels (Remixes)
    3. Bare Jr. “You Blew Me Off” Boo-Tay
    4. Nine Inch Nails “The Downward Spiral (The Bottom)”* Further Down the Spiral

    8. Vampire Weekend “Cousins” Contra
    9. Christina Aguilera “Beautiful” Keeps Getting Better—A Decade of Hits

    7. Hat tip: Daneeka's Ghost
    T. Hat tip: the Hitman

      1. Nope. I added a bunch of stuff to my iPod last Friday before leaving town, and really haven't had much time to listen to any of the new stuff.
        I did listen to the Emptyset LP while mowing on Wednesday night.

        I'll listen to Vol.2 a few times before I decide on whether to look further into Stetson's work.

        1. i maxed out my 30GB a long time ago, so with anything added, others must be removed. i strongly hinted to my mother on her current visit that a 160GB would be much appreciated come xmas time...

          1. I get by with a 16 GB, but I'm constantly swapping things in and out.
            I also use the 128Kb AAC compression option to really cram the iPod full.

    1. I love the AMR has a Christina Aguilera greatest hits disc on his I-pod. Do you use it as an antidote when you overdose on Sonic Youth?

      1. I've got seven songs from that on the iPod. (Note to others: "Hurt" is not a NIN cover. Note to self: Remove "Hurt" from iPod.)
        I'm quite fond of her first two singles, especially "Genie", which I think has just great production.
        I was listening to a lot of Funkstörung* that summer, and "Genie"'s instrumental sounded like a pop take on what they were doing.

        *Kindof the last gasps of the big IDM (Aphex Twin/Autechre/Squarepusher) surge of the late 90's that never really crossed over.

    1. Crap, I can install the client here at work, but there's some sort of proxy setting I don't know how to reconfigure, so the client can't access anything outside. Until I get home then.
