A lot of us listen to music while were sitting at our desks or making lesson plans.

So, when you're sitting here on Waygook and listening to music, tell us what you're listening to.

Nothing at the moment, but lately I've been listening to Orbs a lot. I'd be surprised if anyone here knows them, but it's made up of members of Fear Before the March of Flames, Between the Buried & Me, and Cradle of Filth. Prog rock.

The Flaming Lips made a song that's six hours long.
I've been listening since yesterday afternoon and I'm almost halfway done.

Also:


It's rather nifty.

It's pretty wild.. and, of course, there are quite a few repetitive sections. It's not their best work, but it's not bad and they do mix things up every now and then. It's sort of like something you'd have on at a party so you wouldn't have to feel the need to be completely engaged by it but you know it's there.

Also, Zaireeka is totally great... I was lucky enough to get it in my first year of Uni, so I was in residence and getting 4 CD players was easy. It's also good musically.

Amanda Jenssen - Happyland.  I really like her voice, it's 'smoky'.

Currently- Shop Around by Smokey Robinson (speaking of 'smoky')

...But I think you all just inspired me to go on a flaming lips kick.

Today: Foo Fighters (just because this day's been what it is, and I need some good tunes!)

The other day, it was Michael Jackson, but I needed some psyche-out music to study for my GRE -_-

I was definitely on the whole Pitchfork-indie rotation in college and afterwards, with Bob Dylan and Neil Young thrown in for good measure.  I still largely enjoy that type of music--went on a big Black Keys kick recently--but this past year it's been a lot of female singers.  Florence & the Machine, Bat For Lashes, Lykke Li, Joanna Newsom...and recently just straight-up pop.  I've become a bit obsessed with Lady Gaga,  :D . . . and lately, well, it's been Katy Perry on pretty heavy rotation.  It's so fun and uplifting, I can't listen to bearded men go about failed relationships all the time.

Did either of you guys hear about the one meant to be played on 12 iPhones at once? Came out last year.

I think I heard part of it and it wasn't so great but that could be because it was only 1/12th of the song or something. I haven't been so into the compilations they've been doing lately either... they all sound sort of tossed off or something.

But I'm still happy they're doing what they're doing-- mostly because they've evolved into less of a psychedelic rock band and are now just these crazy 50 year olds coming up with messed up ideas in what I can only imagine to be giant tinfoil beehives connected to spaceships built from designs on napkins found in the cafeterias of secret Antarctic insane asylums.

And I liked pitchfork before they were popular...

Falls here (in my city at least)........ It's all about The Beta Band. Also Wax Tailor and RJD2 are getting their fair share.
