    Scarfie,

    Don't mind the prodigy mix up, but I love the original. I'm pumping it up now to get me going for another 4 or 5 hours of work!!!!

    A friend recently put me onto Metric and they are now on high rotation. They are indie rockers from Canada who came in at no.26 in the most recent JJJ Hottest 100, and are well worth a spin.

    My latest favourites are Hot Chip. I hated them when they first released their last album, but I now listen to one of their albums at least 3-4 times a week.

    I'm not really into Prog Rock, but this song is bloody awesome. And quite suitable for use in a highlights package this year.

    Awesome, Scarfy. I wonder if we did that to Robbie whether he would suddenly make sense?

    My latest find was this fantatic duet between Herbie Hancock and Susan Tedeschi, a bluesy gospel rave up. Quality.

    Not so much a find in terms of a new artist or genre me, more a find in terms of getting my hands on something desirable and hard-to-get.

    I'm a big Captain Beefheart fan and amongst the man's musical oeuvre particularly well regarded is the album Lick My Decals Off, Baby. However since the 80's it has been out of print on CD and hard to get hold of on vinyl, with any items that do come up being expensive and of questionable sound quality and source. To someone young and poor like myself getting hold of the album legally is nigh on impossible.

    So imagine my joy when noodling around on amazon a few weeks ago I took a look on the marketplace and found a seller in the U.S. selling a brand-new, unopened vinyl copy of it for only £24.99 GBP. Madness! I ordered it instantly, it arrived and sounds absolutely great on the turntable at home in NI. Couldn't be happier with it! Does seem like new vinyl copies of the album in a good state are going cheaply these days though.

    A kiwi mate of mine recently put me on to Fat Freddy's Drop. This mob plays a mix of reggae, blues and jazz. It is really good to chill out to. They did a tour thru Oz last year.

    On the back of that group, I have "discovered" Fly My Pretties, The Black Seeds and Salmonella Dub.

    Rugby is not the only thing to come out of the Land of The Long Flat Vowel.

    I finally gave Matisyahu a listen. Not bad! Hassidic Jew who mixes reggae and hip hop.

    I also heard Birds of Tokyo, not bad.

    My favourite five albums of the year so far:

    1. Two Door Cinema Club - Tourist History

    Great debut album from British indie-pop group. Simple songs that rock.

    [video=youtube;KpCcJY-rJSs]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpCcJY-rJSs[/video]

    2. Big Boi - Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son of Chico Dusty

    This guy used to be one half of rap group Outkast, and has produced a cracking solo album at his first attempt. Obviously if rap is not your thing steer clear, but if not listen.

    [video=youtube;rWsvkW6rKkQ]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWsvkW6rKkQ[/video]

    3. The National - High Violet

    This is cool adult contemporary stuff. Great present for old men that like to keep up with current music- the lead singer has a Johnny Cash-like voice and the songs are something else.

    [video=youtube;yfySK7CLEEg]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfySK7CLEEg&ob=av3e[/video]

    4. Turin Brakes - Outbursts

    Acoustic songs from a very consistent British band. Love the vocalist, one of the best voices going around IMO.

    [video=youtube;fawhVcprjDA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fawhVcprjDA[/video]

    5. Sia - We Are Born

    This is pure pop, which I am generally not a fan of. But Sia does it so well it is very hard not to like. The video for this song is shit though.

    Understand that because this is not Icelandic Eskimo Chanting then Scarfy may not approve, so I must apologise in advance to him and those in his camp. But someone has to provide some. ah. normal music on this site.

    I was wondering about Scarfies views on Bjork's album that is done all with Human voices. On one hand it is Icelandic but on the other it is people's voices not instruments (or more precisely computers).

    Might put him in a bit of a conundrum.

    Thanks GMF for your recommendation. Had a listen and they're not too bad.

    If you want some chill out music try the Willie Nelson & Wynton Marsalis album Two Men With The Blues.

    Awesome to listen to after you've put the kids to bed and are kicking back with the feet up enjoying a single malt after a tough day at the office.

    Just picked up Angus and Julia Stone's new album and I have to admit I am loving it. Some of the best Australian music I've heard this year, and it is great background music at work. The other one I am loving at the moment is Midlake's latest.

    Also have recently purchased Cloud Controls album, which has some great tracks, and some average tracks, and also Kele from Bloc Party's solo album which is also a bit up and down.

    I've got one name for you guys:

    Janelle Monae.

    I'll let you guys discover her for yourself, but she is pretty special.

    this isn't a new release, but it's a song i really like. "shake it out" by them is also good.
