do you need a bigger ipod?
you should email me your shipping address in case i come across one.
There's a comment below that explains the reason I didn't buy the 8 GB.
Also, I'm more okay with misplacing $150 than $250.
Some cherry albums here:
Modest Mouse - This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About
Low - Secret Name
Boards of Canada - Music Has the Right to Children
Joanna Newsom - The Milk-Eyed Mender
Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
Air - Moon Safari (tho I far prefer virgin suicides soundtrack)
Madvillain - Madvilliainy
Animal Collective - Feels
. . . are all fantastic.
I also agree. You need a bigger ipod.
I mostly listen to podcasts and you can fit days and days of podcasts on a 2 GB. I also sync way more often than if I were just listening to music to stay "up to date" with them, so a bigger iPod wouldn't make a difference unless I'm venturing away from my computer for a few weeks.
I also have a 1 GB shuffle for ambient music which I'll plug in to a splitter and mix as a delicious music bed for my talkie podcasts. I also really prefer to listen to music without knowing the names of the artist/album/songs, so I can focus on the sound. Though I listen to stuff on repeat a lot, I rarely listen to stuff on shuffle.
Emily has a 4 GB nano and listens to it more normally (never changes up the library, syncs when it needs a charge).
If you ever get the chance to check out the other stuff, do let me know what you think of it.
These really aren't the albums I would recommend everybody go out and buy. Like I said these are all personally important albums (Modest Mouse is forever intertwined freshman year of college, etc).
So I'm really interested what you're take on it is.
Also, your selection kinda ignores non-English speakers. Dungen and Boris is as good as rock gets, in my experience. And truly believe you'd love Ta det lugnt.
Yeah, I just listened to some earlier Dungen this week and I absolutely love it. Plus I know can spell "Mid-summer Bong" in Swedish. When I was watching Sopranos Season 6 Part 2, I could only find them with Swedish fan subtitles. They kept saying "Ta det lugnt" and it was great fun.
Madlib is one of my top 5 artists on last.fm. I think about what he says in interviews and his progression from album to album quite a bit.
I got to interview the guy who makes the music in BMSR for a half hour last time I saw them. I'm very excited they opening up for the Lips. I'm not so very excited it'll cost $50.
So where do we differ then?
The boy-and-his-computer stuff?
Okay, I thought about it and I bet you're talking about:
* The less psychadelic rock like Low and Modest Mouse
* Noise like Kevin Drumm
* Drone like Eliane Radigue and Belong
Am I right?
