CSS - Donkey (if you haven't seen this band live... I don't know... you're missing the boat... you're like, not alive or something... one of those dead people who walk around thinking they're alive when all along they're dead and don't know it... A Zombie! You're a zombie! Don't be a zombie. They smell shitty.)

Treasure Fingers (I don't even have any of their stuff... because I haven't seen any of it in bins yet ::I BUY PHYSICAL MEDIA:: ...but what I heard was awesome)

TV on the Radio - Dear Science (really alive and inspired, pulsing music)

Nathan Vice - "All Nathan Vice" http://blog.discosdanser.com/2008/12/28 ... -mini-mix/ Nate says he's all bogged down with homework, but shit, sounds like he's cranking pretty hard on the tunes to me. A set like this is a milestone for anyone driving at doing this music thing. I hope to make my own flavor of a post like this in '09.

Tra La La Blip - Icecream Truck ..this is pure Ableton magic. Inspired music: http://www.myspace.com/tralalablip

ANYHOW... Dig into this puppy:

not sure if you meant this as an exclamation of solidarity or as a correction to my spelling. if it's the latter, read the backs of your record(s), it's raster-noton not NORTON, although i would be very pleased to see a Signal tribute to "the honeymooners".

Excellent! I walked into the record shop and this was playing and I bought it immediately. While I was waiting to pay, two other guys walked into the record shop and also immediately asked what was playing... :) Very nice album.
