I don't really like the new album. It just seems too.....overdone. Or something. I didn't think it was that great.
And I still don't understand why johnny marr is in the band.
I agree with you on both those statements...
maybe johnny marr is in the band because theyre all kickin it in portland and hes bored or something. why he chose modest mouse is beyond me... I didn't really dig the new album much either speaking of portland, I'm going there for a few weeks this summer and I better run into some member of modest mouse or stephen malkmus or janet weiss or someone. I think that city might be the good music capital USA, if anyone could confirm/deny.

i have been listening to lots of anything Erlend Øye lately. i.e, the whitest boy alive, kings of convenience, etc. also, lots of Jens Lekman. i seem to be listening to people generally from the same area (norway / sweden)

Well, I'm doing a mix of music having been given a bunch of stuff/finding new during the trip.
At the moment, I'm listening to Antennas Up.
I've also been listening to Phoenix, Company of Thieves, and Seth Truett (the CD mentions nothing of the Traitors). I'm also listening to some Jumbling Towers. I'm also listening to The Scribbles and We Voyagers when re-watching those videos, but I don't have MP3s of those.
i'm not hip enough either since (judging from my lastfm charts) I just fill the void between pavement songs with elliott smith and jenny lewis stuff, all of which I've been listening to since eighth grade. sslyby are the only 'new' band I've been consistently listening to, but obviously they transcend the 'blawg hype' and stuff like that. ANYWAY THE POINT WAS CONVERSE HI-TOPS BRO
I've been listening to a lot of HaHaTonka. I think I listen to "Falling In" ten times in a row at least once day. I've also been listening to Republic Tigers. They're based out of Kansas City, but all I have is their Daytrotter tracks.
