I was listening to a ball of Shudder to Think on my ipod shuffle before I lost it drunk in the rain on Sunday - moments away from my house.

Other than that:
Enemies' We've been Talking
Some Scritti Politi
New Avey Tare, Down There which does not sound too good on first listen.
Bits of Starving Weirdos and Emeralds.

and extra mention to Lokai's mesmerising Transistion, which is Stefan Nemeth from Radian and Florian Kmet, which came out last year on Thrill Jockey.

yeah i agree with shaney here, i dont see a point in listing 12 albums one user after another, at least without saying something about them. it just turns into an endless text list of words that might or might not be music - but in any case will not be worth wading through - unless people actually say a little about each thing they listened to... I don't really use itunes/media players at present, so i just try and recall the past few days.

ewa gigon - moonshine flowers: been dipping in and out of this for two weeks. i like it, there's a few lovely melodies, and its got a slightly scary atmosphere.
cee lo green - the lady killer: well, i went about 4 songs in yesterday, i love love love the new single (bright lights bigger city).
the Ray foley show: i listen to this almost every day. its a middle of the road commercial radio show, peppered with ads like any radio station, but i like A: the sense of humour and B: the concept of listening without choice. sometimes its got serious LOLS.
Mozaik - changing trains: Its growing like wildfire this one, only got my hands on it last week. the first song is the 'single' - when the blend of americana, trad and balkan styles comes together after a few tunes its great.
the far side november 2nd: a mix of two hours of irish music from jim carroll which will be streaming for the next few days here - the strream will dissapear, but here's what the playlist was:
Shit Robot “Tuff Enuff” (DFA)
Not Squares “Asylum” (Richter Collective)
R.S.A.G. “Be It Right Or Wrong” (Rare Production)
Two Door Cinema Club “Undercover Martyn” (Kitsune)
Funeral Suits “Florida” (Self release)
Squarehead “Fake Blood” (Any Other City)
Cap Pas Cap “Y Lies” (Skinny Wolves)
Kid Karate “Black & Beige” (Kid Karate Records)
Humanzi “Hammer” (First Born Is Dead)
Baby Beef “Thunderstruck” (Self release)
Meljoann “Exit” (Boy Scout Audio)
The Casanova Wave “The Casanova Wave” (Self release)
The Redneck Manifesto “Rubber Up” (Richter Collective)
Republic of Loose “The Lamp” (Fish Don’t Fear Nets)
Villagers “Home” (Domino)
Cathy Davey “Army Of Tears” (Hammer Toe)
Strands “Framed” (Casino Gravity)
Solar Bears “She Was Coloured In” (Planet Mu)
Ann Scott “Universe” (Raghouse)
Jennifer Evans “Way to Go” (Scuffle)
James Vincent McMorrow “Follow You Down To the Red Oak Tree” (Burning Rope)
Halves “Blood Branches” (Hate Is the Enemy)
Melodica Deathship “Wreck O’ Th Elizabeth Dane” (Self release)
Niamh de Barra “His Own Drum” (Second Square To None)
Mrs Healy’s First Class Choir “Elizabeth” (Self release)
Jimmy Behan “Pools” (Audiobulb)
Gerry O’Beirne & Rosie Shipley “The Lonesome Road” (Shipwhistle)
strands/steve shannon: i've given it a few spins. its ok it seems a bit like really posh shopping music to me.

thats all i can remember. any chance anyone else might describe what they are listening to??

maybe we should post in-depth reviews of the last 12 albums we've listened to.

Today with Pat Kenny.
Pat Kenny's morning radio show on RTE radio 1. I often find I can't listen to music in the mornings, i have to have talking. Its like I need to tune in to the outside world so that I can shut it out again. I like PK on the radio anyway, and marion finucane.

i dunno, i dont think i have the word skills for improving on my list
