It's 2am. The revelers have left your apartment. You're alone surrounded by the empties. Does it get any better at than a bootleg of Nada Surf's Stalemate?

"Love...love will tear us apart...again..."

It's the soundtrack of my life right now. What's yours?

I'm probably the outlyer here, but lately it's been Coltrane, Carole King, Josh Rouse, G Love & Special Sauce, Bessie Smith, and The Black Keys.

Last night totally harshed on my mellow, tho', cuz my friend's drum kit got stolen out of his car after his gig. Kinda ruined the after party...

That Sun Kil Moon record is great for lying awake in the dark.

I've been listening to Franz Ferdinand, Camera Obscura and the Mountain Goats ad infinitum. That, and John Vanderslice's brilliant "Cellar Door." It's getting me through this semester, I swear...

Yeah, the Sun Kil Moon is great. I saw Kozelek recently, and it was so dreamy, never saw the Tea Room so quiet

Agreed - aren't John and Sean on that track too? Only harmonies or were they on instruments too?

THE SHINS.

I can't believe you aren't all in love with this band. Or maybe I'm just showing up a little too fashionably late to the party. Is that it?

At any rate, I swear "Chutes Too Narrow" is the catchiest album since... I dunno, "Alien Lanes," maybe? No joke, the first track was stuck in my head so badly once that I was at a party and couldn't carry on a conversation with anyone, because my brain was just like, "He's got ya talkin' pretty lou-oud..." over and over and I couldn't focus on a word coming out of anybody's mouth. I'm sure everyone thought I was an asshole, or at least really stoned, but I powerless to stop the melodies.

i love the shins, i really do. for awhile, i convinced myself that i did not like chutes too narrow as much as oh, inverted world but i don't know. chutes is just too good. i mean, "saint simon"?!?!?

okay, sorry. i just kind of love james mercer.

also: the shins will be performing on the april 17 episode of gilmore girls. not that anybody cares, but i thought it was interesting.

When I listen to "Chutes Too Narrow," I often feel the need to dance around like one of those kids in the background of "A Charlie Brown Christmas," especially when "Fighting in a Sack" comes on. That album is just way too catchy.

And Hovering, I suggest listening to Camera Obscura and the Mountain Goats in a disc changer with the Pernice Brothers and the Decemberists. That made my Sunday morning this week.

yes, i have been quite addicted to "chutes too narrow" as of late. this record = joy and absolute melodic perfection to me. "saint simon," "kissing the lipless," and "gone for good" are among my favorites.

i also haven't been able to get "if you're feeling sinister" by belle and sebastian out of my cd player. i blame it on "seeing other people" and "get me away from here, i'm dying." any other b and s fans here?
