skrillex - I'm probably getting too old for dubstep judging by the reaction I got in HMV when I asked about the album - I think the lass thought I should be listening to Richard Clayderman, instead - but he has a great vid, which is like a creepy horror movie that's worth having a butcher's at:

It's sometimes a curse being of an age when people start expecting you to like Phil Collins.

Samit Basu's Turbulence, a superhero novel read by Ramon Tikaram. Odd to hear him do jolly and perky!

Took me a long time to hear about it, but I've quickly grown to love Welcome to Night Vale, a half-hour drama podcast available for free on iTunes, something like a cross between Lost and Eerie Indiana, all reported from the point of view of a radio presenter to whose programme you're listening. I really recommend it.

I like Lost Themes, the new pseudo-soundtrack album by John Carpenter. Also enjoying The Adventure Zone, a roleplaying podcast from the Maximum Fun network, where a bunch of very funny guys play through a series of adventures. Reminds me how much fun I used to have roleplaying.

Currently listening to the original Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I'd read all the books, listened to the Stephen Fry-narrated audiobook, watched the TV series and the film, but somehow never heard the original radio programme. My Audible tokens had been piling up and I got the first three series. My fourth token went to a real bargain, Elvenquest: The Journey So Far, including all of the first four series.

Today I've been listening to the second of the Brenda and Effie Mysteries, Bat Out of Hull. It's very good. Would make perfect Sunday night television.

Monday Ain't Happening -

a local pop-punk band who remind me of the sounds I heard in my teens http://mondayainthappening.bandcamp.com/

Love their original material - especially Green Street - but they also do a mean cover of My Generation

Currently listening to the Audible adaptation of Tim Lebbon's Alien novel, Out of the Shadows. It's very well done, uses the audio medium very effectively, with comms cutting out when the aliens attack and things like that. Seems to be an alternate sequel to the first film, with Ripley being woken up by the crew of an orbital mining station.

shuffling between three albums at the mo' when I'm doodling:

Michael Oldfield's - The Songs of Distant Earth
Vangelis's - 1492, conquest of paradise
the soundtrack from The Elder Scrolls Online

the latter was quite a surprise - it's very, very good - loads of choir, orchestration and nifty rumbles of timpani

Electronica #2 by Jean Michel Jarre - quite a departure from his former fare, except perhaps the Slam, Gat and Decor remix album of Chronologie 4 ... I'm thoroughly enjoying it, needless to say

haven't heard #1 yet but that's on my playlist, too  8)

I've just discovered the music of Blackbriar, an alternative metal band about to bring out their first EP. The three songs available on Youtube are all arguably somewhere on the fantasy/horror spectrum (but then so is a lot of metal, I guess ;) ), but anyway, that's my excuse for mentioning them here…

Lots of Genesis.
Lots of Steve Hackett.

just in a bit of an English prog mood at the moment…

Currently listening to the new podcast Reading Glasses ("a podcast designed to help you get more out of your literary experiences"). Only two episodes in, but it's good so far: http://www.maximumfun.org/shows/reading-glasses

Also really enjoying The Adventure Zone, a very funny roleplaying podcast which is nearing the end of its epic campaign: http://www.maximumfun.org/shows/adventure-zone
