Oh, it was gorgeousness and gorgeousity made flesh.  
Asking people for music recommendations is a bit of a rocky path - people don't know what to recommend, and if they do, tastes are so divergent, that the chances of me liking what's recommended aren't necessarily the best.

But, I have thought of an alternative idea for discovering new bands to explore - thanks to the efforts of leadgend throwing The Brian Jonestown Massacre at my beloved Dandy Warhols (so far, I still prefer the Dandys).

Anyway, the idea here is to play a sort of word association game. I'm going to list the bands/artists I am currently deeply into, and anyone who wants to play along can add anything that isn't on the list that they think is similar or otherwise related to any of these.

The Dandy Warhols
Pink Floyd
The Velvet Underground
Tom Waits
Kite Flying Society
The Polyphonic Spree
The Shins
Andrew Bird
Current Music: Jeff Buckley - Grace

Re: sure...
I've been meaning to get some more Iron & Wine. I only have one track at the moment (Such Great Heights from the Garden State soundtrack).

Thanks heaps.

Re: sure...
And I love the icon. That's one of the all time classic Far Sides.

Yes, yes. All good.

Actually, a timely reminder, I've been meaning to check out some more of Ben Folds' stuff - I was very into Ben Folds Five when I was a teenager. Man, that makes me feel old.

Also, Cake is one of my all time favourite bands.
