    2. Grizzly Bear - Shields
    3. Bill Fay - Life Is People
    4. Beach House - Bloom
    5. Jessica Pratt - Jessica Pratt
    6. Flying Lotus - Until The Quiet Comes
    7. Jack White - Blunderbuss
    8. David Byrne & St. Vincent - Love This Giant
    9. Lotus Plaza - Spooky Action at a Distance
    10. Tame Impala - Lonerism
    11. Swans - The Seer
    12. Daniel Rossen - Silent Hour/Golden Mile EP

    Normally R&B gives me a rash, but Channel Orange by Frank Ocean is seriously good.

    I went to Utrecht today to play for one time in a Red Hot Chili Peppers cover band. Here's our version of Road Trippin':

    Someone changed REM's song Losing my Religion from the Minor key to the Major key. Quite cool!

    Selection of stuff I listened to this week:

    Blaudzun - Heavy Flowers: Dutch artist, album suffers a bit because it starts with the best song from the whole album. He largely sings without a Dutch accent, which I appreciate because most do and it's annoying. However, lyrical-wise I will maintain that Dutch bands or artists just aren't that great. That said, it's a good album.

    PJ Harvey - To Bring You My Love: This has slowly become my second favorite album of hers, behind Let England Shake. It's dark, bluesy, American desert feel at time, and I can listen to this album over and over again.

    Bill Hicks - Rant in E-Minor: Probably my favorite stand-up comedian at the moment, really funny and insightful.

    Brian Eno - Thursday Afternoon: Excellent ambient music. At times I don't know if it's the music or the background noise combined with the music that I'm listening or not listening to. :D

    Just came across a young artist VOXEL and from what little I've heard, I'm quite impressed.

    Press Any Key To Begin, Humanity, Rhapsody, Beautiful Discord, etc
