What's Been Spinnin'

I'm on my second listen through Nine Inch Nails' "Year Zero" and its very good. I've never bought any of Reznor's stuff before, but I'm diggin' this one.

Also spinnin' a lot recently while I've been writing a couple papers:
  • The Swell Season
  • Andrew Bird - and the Mysterious Production of Eggs
  • Arcade Fire - Neon Bible
  • The Hold Steady - Boys and Girls in America
  • New Pornographers - Live in Soho
Those have been in heavy rotation in the 5-disc changer. And yes, I do still listen to complete albums, not just singles shuffled on my iPod. To me, a quality album is a piece of art and should be experienced as such. Crazy, I know.

No, that's not crazy. In fact, sometimes I feel weird if I only hear a song and not the song before it. A well designed album is to be appreciated. :)

I always feel that way about David Gray's music, and about Jeff Buckley's My Sweetheart the Drunk two-disc.
