22 Oct 2008, 21:11 by xinacoladaSince I just took this from someone and there weren't any directions, I'm guessing the numbers are supposed to correspond to my top artists...
1. How did you get into 29?
Toad The Wet Sprocket
What a way to start this out. God, I don't know...from my sister, I think...definitely I listened to them all the time in the fall when I would do physics homework.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
Everywhere! DUH! Oh, 8th grade.
3. What's your favorite lyric by 33?
It is technically from Schiller ft. September but whatever it's her singing. And I can't actually tell what she's saying until she says "where feelings come to die," but that is my favorite.
4. How did you get into 49?
I didn't so much "get into her" as my friend made me a CD and that was on there.
5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
Technically I bought one, In Rainbows. But I have acquired three others by various means.
6. What is your favorite song by 50?

26 Apr 2008, 18:59 by Asp85Asp Bites' Tunes of the Week 2008 - #17
I'm not entirely sure why - but I'm fairly sure I've not listened to quite as much music as I normally do in the week. Presumably as a consequence, there's not many new tracks to mention.
The latest track from the Pigeon Detectives, This Is An Emergency (12th May release) is certainly worth a mention; as is The Race from Cajun Dancy Party (last Monday release), just in time for the debut album. Best of the new mentions though is this one, released on 5th May. It's got a traditionally catchy chorus, which is normally enough to implant into my mind - thus make it as TOTW:
Captain - Keep an Open Mind
However, apart from that, it's been previously mentioned tracks that I've been enjoying this week (and I get the feeling that some might yet still be a TOTW). Notably Infadels (Make Mistakes (Radio Edit)); White Denim (Let's Talk About It; Shout out Louds (Tonight I Have To Leave It); and Royword (Dust).
13 Apr 2008, 15:10 by Asp85Asp Bites Tunes of the Week 2008 #15
I think that there's lots of themes around this week.
First of all, there's a French theme. It's very rare that French artists release songs in the UK - especially in their native language. There's only been one really successful song in the UK charts - and that featured an English born singer, although Jane Birkin is a much bigger celebrity over the channel. Of course, us Brits completely misinterpreted Je t'aime non plus, but that's only to be expected.
However, successful over in France, Emily Loizeau released
L'Autre Bout Du Monde last Monday over here as well - several years after it's first recording. Ignore the lyrics if you must, but I find it a smooth and relaxing melody.
Leon Jean-Marie is a Londonner - but he's got a French name. His first single on the Island label,
Bed Of Nails was also released last Monday. Produced by Mark Ronson (nowadays an automatic indicator of success), some people describe it as being a bit like Madness. …

1 Dec 2007, 14:23 by popphenrikWent to the Shout Out Loud concert at KB yesterday.. A lot of people had the same idea, because the place was packed. Shout Out Louds did only play 2 (or three?) songs from their first album, which is a pity cause Howl Howl Gaff Gaff is much better than the new one Our Ill Wills. The concert was good. They do their The Cure-soundalike music better than most. And Tonight I Have To Leave It is a fantastic song.
The support act Lykke Li looked like and sounded like Amy Diamond. I am not sure Lykke Li takes that as a good thing!!
