    Sun Kil Moon Tiny Cities Stunningly beautiful reworkings of Modest Mouse's album of the same name. Improves on the original. Cat Power The Greatest Her greatest so far. Takes a few listens but works its splendid magic eventually. The fact that she is beautiful helps too. Mogwai Mr.Beast Yet another masterpiece from Glasgow's finest. 'Friend Of The Night' is one the most earth-shatteringly sublime pieces of music since recording began. The rest of the album is rather fine too. Live, though, is where they really come into their own. And then some. The Knife Deep Cuts The birthplace of the jose Gonzalez phenomenon where he initially found 'Heartbeats'. Great electro-pop with lovely heavy Swedish accented female vocals. Tenner in Tower The Album Leaf In A Safe Place An ambient electronic album you can listen to from beginning to end without hitting the skip button. Sublime, dreamy, essential. Tenner in Tower. (I don't work for Tower!!)

    I do like The Greatest a lot, but I still prefer Moon Pix. This week I'll probably be listening to "In The Aeroplane Over The Sea" a lot, just like last week, and the week before that. After not liking it at all when I first heard it I'm now becoming scarily obsessed with that record.

    Fiery Furnaces 'Bitter Tea' Still need to get used to it but like it so far. Pretty Girls Make Graves 'Elan Vital' Sharp, inventive and enjoyable. Gets better with each listen. The Album Leaf 'In A Safe Place' I also picked this up for €10 at the start of the week. A really consistent and impressive album. Minus 5 'The Gun Album' Excellent stuff. Cameos from Jeff Tweedy, Peter Buck, Glenn Kotche and Colin Meloy. But it's just one of those rare records that is well crafted from beginning to end.

    Two Gallants - What the toll tells Best album of the year so far, imo. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Show Your Bones First impressions are pretty positive, need to give it a few more spins Monks - it's black monk time Classic sixties garage rock.

    He is back in Ireland in June, will catch him then, missed him in February. This week I have been mostly listening to Death Cab For Cutie - Plans (very enjoyable i thought) Regina Spektor - Soviet Kitsch (interesting, some good songs)

    Paste Sampler CD with new tracks from Sufjan and Flaming Lips, also stuff from The Avett Brothers, Shawn Mullins, Mugison, Neko Case and Modern Skirts. Also new Delays album "You see Colours", not grabbing me as much as "Faded Seaside Glamour" but still liking it. Belle & Sebastian "The Life Pursuit" and Loosefir thanks for reminding me of Andrew Bird, keep meaning to buy it, will treat myself this afternoon!!

    You See Colours is a bit iffy, but I might grow to like it. LOVING the YYY new record. SO GOOD. Really, really hope they hit Electric Picnic, that would make my year.

    Protein Biscuit - As amawaster said 'The Gun Album' would be your best bet about getting into The Minus 5 (www.minus5.com) Una - Are the new efforts by The Vines and Jinx Lennon any use?

    Aren't the Yeah Yeah Yeahs the most over-rated band of recent times? I bought their first and was so disgusted at the yelping feel of it that I cannot bring myself to listen to it again. I'll keep trying with the new Flaming Lips this week...but I am finding it difficult. It's such an angry album to these ears. I'll also try Fosbury by Tahiti 80 and I've been saving 1970's Green is Blues by Al Green.

    Yeah, bought 'Fever To Tell', listened to it once and I have never gone back to it since. There is only one decent song on it. They're another lo-fi, punky, ultra-hip NY outfit that music hacks drool over but on closer inspection the quality of the songs just don't live up to the amount the attention they receive. I like Karen O, though...pity about the music.
