For the first time ever, my Top 50 is a true/truer representation of my actual tastes. My Top 100 is even more interesting. As you can see my tastes are very diverse, and they will continue to get even weirder, as I am really plunging deep into the worlds of , , and female . The only new band that really excites me at the moment is The Horrors.
They are a fucking awesome surf/psychobilly/garage death punk act(seriously! it all applies) & I use the term "death" because their shows are reminiscent of the great energy of the early 80's deathrock shows, even if their sound isn't. Anyway, the stupid NME kids will lump this in with the angular pop movement, even though their music owes nothing to post-punk at all. But whatever. They will end up as another "trend" band, although God only knows what will happen if others follow in their footsteps, haha. Anyway...who else is awesome?
Oh, the Brazilian Girls, Love Is All, and Erase Errata. I'm fucking done with the millionth wave Gang of Four ripoff acts, although most of them aren't even that bad. I'M JUST TIRED OF IT. Next up: . Yup. And I'll embrace it. I DON'T WANT ANY MORE FREAK FOLK/NEW WEIRD AMERICA ACTS SHOVED IN MY FACE EVER AGAIN.

    good 'ol shoe is better (as most things are the first time around). If you haven't before, dig into early My Bloody Valentine. It's noisier, faster, seem kind of pop-punkish in a way (I'm talking before they made albums stuff). The American Horrors are ace as well by the way.

    just noticed this now. 1.) I love all stages of MBV 2.) The US Horrors are interesting, I'd agree, but I can't help but fall much harder for the campy gross-out bliss of the UK act. Personal preference.
