Deeply Embarrassing Musical ‘Taste’

Filed under: Uncategorized — duncan @ 8:21 pm

Alas, Limited Inc has tagged me for a meme.

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to.

But I inhabit a musical wasteland; a Lynchian thrum of anxiety my only auditory companion. I haven’t bought a record for more than a year. Plus – I’m an indie kid, of sorts; which is absolutely not something one wants to admit in a public forum. The musical wasteland began, for instance, when I successfully weaned myself off John Kennedy’s XFM show – that gives you some idea of the problem.

But since (*sigh*) the meme beckons, let me throw up a few things I’ve been hearing recently.

[I’m not going to tag anyone, because I’d quite like to pretend this post never happened. Also, sorry about the user-generated Art Brut video.]

1) Rilo Kiley. ‘Portions for Foxes’

3) Morrissey. ‘First of the Gang to Die’

3) Art Brut. ‘Nag nag nag nag’

4) Regina Spektor. ‘US’

5) Pulp. ‘Lyndhurst Grove’

I’m also going to include this clip from the opening sequence of ‘Werckmeister Harmonies’.  (As a sort of compensating mechanism.) It counts for two.

6&7)  Bela Tarr; Mihaly Vig.  ‘Werckmeister Harmonies’.

So what are you listening to, Tom?


  1. Oh, you terror, you abomination, you scoundrel. Oh god damn you to a thousand hells.

    Give me a day or two…
