The new Shins - Wincing the Night Away, the new Of Montreal record, Talking Heads - 77, Lily
Allen, Randy Newman good old boys, Velvet Underground Loaded, and a mix my friend made with a songs about robots. I've also been turned on to Gogol Bordello, the Softlights, Girl Talk, and a couple of other things I can't think of... mostly I've been mourning the loss of my fantasy life (where I imagine that I lived in the city during the wild and dangerous days) and I've been listening on repeat to Track 9, "New York, I love You," off of the forthcoming LCD Soundsystem record, Sound of Silver (out this spring). Great album.
