Grrr, I am very jealous of your lazy weekend, I ma listening to the sound of people packing boxes around me (moving house...) No, really though, listening to Field Music - Tonnes of Tonne at the minute.
umm Oceansize - Frames - cant take it off, cant live without it at the moment....also frequenctly buzzing thrugh my earphones recently, T2 - Boomland (early 70s stuff for those who are unaware); TCTC - Kick Out the Flames (still marvelous) and PT back catalogue which I am slowly getting more into.
even tho it's kind of fake in terms of time since my Zen doesn't sync. But just to name some names..Ebu Gogo, Nicole Atkins, The Helio Sequence, The Human Abstract, This Will Destroy You, Black Mountain, King's X, Ken Andrews, The Von Hertzen Brothers...

Muse, muse and more muse...I'd never really understood the whole hype thing about them but I saw them live over the weekend and now all their music sounds sorta different, if thats actually possible! Loving Knights of Cydonia and New Born at the minute, its the ones with the riffs that blow you away that I'm so impressed with.
Truly awesome band! If you're looking for back catalogue recommendations (not a huge back catalogue anyway, but...) Origin Of Symmetry is their best album, and Showbiz (from Showbiz, the album) is their best song. But they've never made a duff album, and only have a handful of naff songs, so you can't go wrong: good choice!

Yeah...I mean, I've got all of their albums, they're kinda (amongst my circle of friends anyway) a bit of a music collection staple...but I'd never really engaged with it until now. Definately think Origin of Symmetry is my favourite- New Born into Bliss is pure awesomeness!

I used to LOVE muse and listen to them the whole time. But I have to say that I've come to think of them as being actually a bit bland. While the sound they create is awesome beyond all parallel, and their riffs are fantastic, esp live, Bellamy's actual song writing ability is, when you strip it down, pretty basic, and often unoriginal. They're still a great band, and fully deserving of their popularity, but I don't think they quite have the je-ne-sais-quoi to maintain my whole-hearted interest in them.
