Last Week in Music | 1/27/08 – 2/03/08

After months of bitching and complaining my Last.fm is finally displaying my totals accurately. If anyone is having any problems with Last.fm’s client, I highly suggest switching over to iScrobbler. My only beef is how ugly the icon is, but it works great, so whatever.

Like I wrote in the previous post, I listened to pretty much nothing but Vampire Weekend all last week. In fact I listened to the album almost 17 times, and that doesn’t count when I was listening to it in the car. I think I might try and go see them play at Amoeba tonight, if there isn’t a line out the door for them.

After that was the new Sébastien Tellier and Magnetic Fields’ albums. Tellier’s album is growing on me more and more, and I’m especially liking the last part of his new album. The Magnetic Field’s album is becoming a big favorite of mine as well, but it’s such a drastic departure from their last album I that it’s been taking some used to. I’m really enjoying ‘I’ll Dream Alone’ a lot, it’s more of a classic Magnetic Fields song.

The rest was just the usual stuff I listen to throughout my day, although there was an inclusion of Sondre Lerche, whom I had a craving to listen to out of nowhere. I forgot how good his first album Faces Down was.
