Susanne Sundfor "The Silicone Veil". Through the headphones (HD650s).

Nice.

John Grant "Pale Green Ghosts". Loud, lovely.

A great listen, a truly wonderful band, and it contains 3 of the most perfect pop songs ever written. 

Vinyl just landed today - one for Sunday.

I've added it to Spotify and might even buy the CD in the future. Are there any other Kiss albums that you'd recommend?

RE: What are you listening to?

Turn It On, a Genesis compilation album that I recently bought used off ebay for a few quid. While it doesn't look very marked or damaged it's been one of the most challenging CDs of my whole collection to rip, taking three different applications (XLD, iTunes and Sound Forge) to rip it in its entirety, over a period of about two hours.

Ninja Tunes Solid Steel Radio Show

Been working my way through the back catalogue. A typically eclectic mix, although be warned that Coldcut's Kraftwerk Kover Kollection mixes will get Kraftwerk melodies stuck in your head for days.

This is my favourite recording of this song. There's some particularly wonderful guitar playing in this live version.

This video is pure musical perfection. rockin out  rockin out  rockin out

The debut album called' Kiss' is brilliant as is the first live album called 'Alive!' (been a fan for 25 years). If you like your rock a little more bombastic then listen to the album 'Creatures of the night'
