12 Jun 2007, 17:03 de ccrosbyBeen meaning to do this for a while, I forget the name of the excercise, but you put your iPod or player on shuffle and note the ten songs that come up randomly. No editing, even the embarassing material is noted and explained. It says a lot about one's tastes. So...
1. And One: Rearming Strafbomber - I love this song. I only discovered And One within the last year though they had been recommended to me for a long time. This is an english translation of one of their earlier German-language songs. What I like about them is their ability to sound very EBM on one track and then like a synthpop group on the next, and pull both off well. (This track is more the former)
2. Beck: Think I'm In Love - This is from the The Information album released last year and it was my favourite Beck album to date, and one of my top ten albums of 2006. Problem is, as much as I liked the album it hadn't aged well, certainly not as well as Guerro, its predecessor. …

all:my:faults - Combining ebm/synthpop/industrial and darkwave, depending on which song you listen to :) My favourite I think is Sand of Time - but they're all well worth checking out.
Android Lust - described by the artist as "electronic and dark", I guess I'd agree. Dragonfly comes highly recommended in the electronica category, and Stained is somewhat darker and more chillouty. I think they're great anyway :D
Also found via last.fm, through a comment on their artist page, are some unreleased tracks by bôa which are available on a band member's website. bôa are most well-known for that Duvet track from the Serial Experiments: Lain anime, but this collection is awesome funk tracks. Before finding this link I didn't know anything about bôa except for Duvet, so I don't know if the information I'm getting from the OP is true.. but here's their comment. "It has several unreleased bôa songs, including some sung by Steve Rodgers! It shows a lot of their early funk style."
