    So... taking a break from painting like a painting fiend to meet the AP deadlines to ramble uselessly about what I listened to last week. Right.

    01. Einsturzende Neubauten
    I've always been vaguely aware of them because they're connected to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, but only recently started listening (obsessively) to them. The only full album I've got (this is a problem that will be remedied as soon as damn well possible... neeed moaarrr.) is Halber Mensch and it's been playing incessantly. FUTTER MEIN EGOOO. Yeah, I love them. More about Blixa down the page...
    Fur Wen Sind Die Blumen?

    02. Swans
    INTENSE. Droningly noisy buildups and crescendos and Michael Gira's rumbling baritone and Jarboe's lovely haunting voice.
    Song for the Sun

    03. Blitz
    I'm wondering if the Blitz this is linking to is actually the same band I was listening to this week, because 'oi punk' definitely wasn't it.
    Snappy post-punk, a bit like The Sound or The Comsat Angels. …

    I was just listening to Social History Theme (wtf this can't be found, is it too short?) and realized that I really like that "end beat" in the end of TV series theme songs/melodies.

    Newborn is weird. The first minute is subtle music, the second is just as subtle singing, then something happens but I don't remember what, then the rest is subtle singing again.

    I don't know why I listen to Talkshow Boy. Almost everytime Winamp suffles him up the song sounds very irritating and irrelative, but there's still something attracting in his music. Only thing I can actually name is song titles, and lyrics might might might but his homepage doesn't include them, which - I think - is rather stupid for a musician with that omgwitty song titles and unclear singing voicexstyle.

    I noticed that Fall Dog Bombs The Moon is on Reality and then I also noticed that I've always had some vague negative feeling towards Reality. I have no idea what or why. …
