"Amy Millan or something and she's got her own album out??? " - Yeah it's called 'Black Honey' (I think. actually it has a longer bit attached to the name, but i can't remember what it is) and it's great.

Yes. Some of the lyrics grate (like with the Postal Service) and it's all a bit too sweet. Sweetness is fine coming out of Amy but not so much with Tarquil or whatever his name is.

I caught them at ATP in May and thought that they were fantastic. If you're bothered by such things check out how high above the kit the overhead mics are placed. The drummer beats the hell out of his kit.

the stars album - i'm with whoever called it "too sweet" above unfortunately... i could only stomach two listens when i first got it and it hasn't been out of its sleeve since... i really wanted to like it... ... my current totally unrational dislike of quirky canadian and american indie bands certainly doesn't help... (aside from arcade fire who seem to remain vital)

Not getting into the solo album so much. It's mostly laid back alt-country stuff, mostly. She also sings on a few tracks for Broken Social Scene. Great voice.

I thought that set was rather dull, actually, but I'm biased because I don't really like his voice.. they are very good at their thing, at any rate.

well, somewhere between the two, anyway. I prefer the storyscape Tain parts, I think, but his Impossibly Catchy Pop Songs are rather ace too :)

I just got the Giva a Man a Kick album and it totally rocks, seen them at the Electric Picnic and they were amazing and the album doesn't disappoint. I'm also listening to Bonnie Prince Billy and Tortoise "The Brave and The Bold" album. I think this album is amazing. I only realized it was a covers album after i heard Donal Dineen say it a while back. Im looking forward to Christmas.

Just thought of something i was looking forward to other than Christmas. Mumblin Deaf Ro is releasing a new album in the new year. I went to see him play an amazing gig with Michael Knight in Bewleys a few weeks ago and his new songs are as good if not better then the songs on "Senor My Friend". I think this man is the best singer songwriter to come from this country.

I think The Sleepy Jackson album is excellent. A real grower.
