What I'm listening to these days

So much music to listen to... here are a few artists that are worth checking out:

Kahimi Karie (an amazing female Japanese singer)

Melissa Auf de Maur (formerly of Hole, doing quite well on her own)

The Concretes (from Sweden, my brother told me about them and forgot about it)

the Aislers Set (a cool SF band w/connections to the Softies, Go Sailor, and Still Flyin' - thanks to a cool new pen pal)

the Kills (friends of the Raveonettes and touring the UK with BRMC and the Brian Jonestown Massacre)

Architecture in Helsinki (a delightful indie pop/rock orchestra from Australia)

Malcolm Middleton (the former leader of the Delgados, now solo with a similar band)

Tilly and the Wall (an Omaha, NE band who were excellent opening for Of Montreal)

and a couple of NME buzz bands

Razorlight (who Oasis have championed)

Maximo Park (the next big thing from the UK)

Also, I'm listening to Longview and Embrace to see if I want to see them in concert later this month.
