I didn't think much of Bonobo's decision use female vocals on his latest album, but this track hearkens back to his early work and provides a nice introduction to his style. CAUTION: EXTREME SMOOTHNESS.

I liked that one abbaon. My constant standby is Claire Voyant. Finding a good clip seems to be my biggest problem. http://www.clairevoyant.com/ Wanderlust is one of my favorites. You can get a full taste of some songs at http://www.myspace.com/clairevoyant The first two are my picks, but they don't match up to her albums.

Bart and Corwin should just admit that when it gets down to it, I will have the final say.

Not too shabby, abbaon. I don't generally get too excited about jazzy instrumentals, but that one had some good points.

Those are the best sources I know of for CV clips, cm. Keep an eye out for their rendition of "What Child is This" which they usually post somewhere this time of year and is simply divine.

I was doing til tuesday's hits collection on the drive home. Aimee Mann could write great songs.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

It is on the Myspace link I posted. It was the first one.

Watched "Coonskin" recently and it got me so much into Barry White… He's awsome

Here's a taste (with great lyrics) of a past, live performing band, all analogue capable players, their 'bagpipes' sound was unique.
Sadly missed, the death of Stuart Adamson was a great shock.

Some Fergie/Black Eyed Peas thing I heard on the radio. I couldn't turn away from the carnage. Please kill me now.

I'm on vacation, and I just ripped my favourite Led Zep songs on my XBox 360. All that glitters is gold !

Sort of sounds like my wife watching the Paris Hilton video on MSN music when it came out … she said 'it was so terrible I just couldn't stop watching'

My selection of radio stations in the bustling metropolis of Madison are rather limited (particuarly since I don't care for country and radio ministry), and the choices I've got all seem to be playing the damn song on an hourly rotation. I can't escape the agony. This is more insidious than that infernal "milkshake" song from a few months ago that would get branded into your brain and leave permanent scarring.

@Jaz- can't really do a hunt from work, but I'll see what I can find once I'm back on line at home. Perhaps another clue if you think of anything?

@dteowner-i'm a big shoegazer myself by the way and might have to have a 'discussion' with you at somepoint. kdvs is one 3 freeform stations in the country, ie the djs can play/say whatever they want as long as it doesn't violate fcc regulations of course. you can listen to it online at www.kdvs.org there's new schedules every quarter so if you do find a show you like check back in a few months. you might like the 'vicious cabaret'…

If we're talking internet radio, I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend a Live365 station called Vertigo done by Groovyjim. Dream/gaze/Sarah-sound and a bit of appropriate indie thrown in. I can't afford to listen to it because I keep hearing new stuff I have to go buy. Once I'm online at home, I'll give kdvs a listen.

Any time ya wanna talk, you know where to find me. Just ask all the former NFGers from the Dot—I get real excited when someone will talk shoegaze with me (although, technically, I suppose I prefer dream-pop). I would also recommend a very nice gazer board, http://www.shoegaze.co.uk/

Your recommended listening of the day: Go to MySpace and find a band called Tearwave. Enjoy. You can thank me later.

It was this track from the album 'Bodypop'. Over at Amazon.com, they do list the album, but don't have any samples, so you must resort to this Real Player snippet (I hate Real Player, won't install it ever agaon, and thus have no idea which part of the song they sampled). And One's musical style ranges from Depeche Mode to Andreas Dorau, their lyrics are English one day, German the next.
While this track is very fun-poppy, they have made stuff you might like better, but I couldn't find any samples.

Well, I'm finally getting back to normal down here, so I'll be able to put up some tunes with links soon. It's challenging getting decent links with the e-policy at work.

For now, we'll go with:
"Crash" by Ether Aura
(they've got a decent video for it over on their MySpace page)
