1.Guano Apes 24
Generic female/Male fronted metal with a hint of electronics and metal core from Germany. Easy listening.

2.Mr. Bungle 20
California is such a damn good album that i had to play it twice.

3.Slowdive 15
Brilliant shoegaze band with a higher quality of production that's not usually attributed to shoegaze.

4.The Neville Brothers 15
Classic New Orleans influenced Soul from the legendary brothers.

5.Frank Zappa 15
1966's Freakout! got a run out for the first time in a while.

6.Jacob Miller & Inner Circle 15
Classic Roots Reggae revisited for an upcoming MB project.

7.Pop Will Eat Itself 15
Clint Mansell's (The Fountaion OST) first band. Grebo rock they called it. Utilising lots of loops and samples to scuzzy guitar riffs.

8 Sepultura 14
Their second album the breakthrough 'Schizophrenia' is criminally overlooked in the Thrash fraternity. Great raw production.

9 Mudvayne 13
Progressive metalcore is it? Not quite sure. Twas OK but needs another listen.

10.New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble 13
Exactly what is says on the tin. Groovy Ska with a boppy jazzy backbone. Great fun.

11 Otis Redding 12
1966's Dictionary Of Soul is a brilliant Soul album and the guy had a great voice.

11 Hawkwind 12
Perennial favourites of mine. Warrior At The Edge Of Time was the album of choice.

12.John Martyn 12
I don't even have his second album but got a listen through Spotify. Already changing his sound aged 20.

13.R.E.M. 11
Finally managed to get 'Document' which was the last album before they hit big with 'Green'. Document is a great album and deserves more admirers.

14 Edie Brickell and New Bohemians 11
The bands debut album will always be on of my favourite albums. Sweet guitar pop.

15. Autolux 11
A shoegaze/rock crossover that came out a couple of years ago. Ridiculously good.

16. Jethro Tull 10
The album 'A' got a run out. Fylingdale Flyer is such a great tune. I have a soft spot for the Tull.

17 Senser 10
One of the infamous 'bed-sit' bands that were around in the 80's and 90's. Senser peddle a ferocious metal/Rap sound that RATM aside was years ahead of everyone else.

18. Junius 10
Solid harmonic metal without the cliches.

19. Moodorama 10
Nu-Jazz chillout. Nice.

Here's my revised list, as of Sunday night, with comments.

1. Clark (69)
I found out he's got a new album coming out soon, which excites me, so I played just about everything I have by him. Which includes just about everything. I played some more than once. See Chris Clark below? Same guy...his first 2 releases were under his full name. Anyway...I really like him, he doesn't stay in one place too long, there has been some real progression from one album to the next and his EPs are really awesome. IDM/techno.

2. Heavy Vegetable (52)
Rob Crow from Pinback used to be in Heavy Vegetable and another band named Thingy, which I haven't heard. Heavy Vegetable basically reformed in 2007 under the name Other Men, and put out a great album that inspired me to eventually check this out. Not bad but some self-editing could have improved the album (not unlike many 80s and 90s college rock albums). But hey they're having fun.

3. Chris Clark (36)
See Clark above.

4. Flying Lotus (34)
Revisited both of his albums. The two are more similar than I remembered, but I like them. I'm curious where he'll go next, his EPs have been interesting.

5. The Dukes of Stratosphear (32)
First listen to their compilation that includes their debut EP and LP. My girlfriend has this CD and one song came on her iPod alarm clock one morning. I liked it and thought it sounded like The Kinks, so I checked it out and I like it.

6. Queen (25)
Sheer Heart Attack and A Night at the Opera both for the first time. I always liked a few of their songs and knew there was potential there. A local station played "Killer Queen" late in the week, a song I knew and liked a lot, so I said ok I really gotta check out some Queen albums.

7. The Budos Band (22)
Played both of their albums while cleaning house last Sunday. I always enjoy it, great retro Afro-beat, jazz-funk, whatever. 70s soundtrack style. Very fun music, good for summertime. This isn't a genre I'm very familiar with, and I wouldn't mind eventually checking out some similar stuff.

8. Boom & Birds (20)
Roberto Carlos Lange is an Ecuadorean-American trip-hop/downtempo producer from Florida. His beats are smooth, especially the EP Confetti. He has also release work as Epstein (pretty good) and collaborated with another guy as ROM (haven't heard). He recently collaborated with Guillermo Scott Herren on the latest Savath & Savalas album, which I also haven't heard because S&S isn't really my thing.

9. Leatherface (16)
First listen to these guys, played their highly acclaimed album Mush. Good punk rock that reminds me a lot of the stuff I listened to in the 90s, who were obviously influenced by these guys. I will be playing more of this soon.

9. Red Sparowes (16)
First listen to their album Every Red Heart Shines Toward the Red Sun, played it twice throughout the week. Honestly I was expecting something a bit heavier, and it didn't really separate itself from standard post-rock very much. As with most in the genre, I'm guessing it'll take many listens to really get into it. But as of now I'm not that motivated.

11. The Electric Banana (15)
I found out about this (a pseudonym of The Pretty Things) through Jackhammer and this was my second time playing the album The Electric Banana Blows Your Mind. It's pretty good.

11. Sebadoh (15)
I played Bakesale, tied with Harmacy for my favorite record by them. I do wish all of their albums were a bit more consistent, there are several throw-away tracks on all of them. I'm more a fan of Lou Barlow's tracks.

13. Boxcutter (14)
Played his new album, Arecibo Message, for the first time. Quality stuff. A lot of people like to label him dubstep, and while it's true that some and probably most of his tracks are, I think there's more to him than that, and always has been. When I first picked up his debut, Oneiric, it was just IDM to me. Though of course there are many styles of IDM and I wasn't even aware of the term dubstep yet. But now with a rather well defined definition of what dubstep is, I don't think it's fair to pigeonhole him as dubstep. I've read reviews of people saying "not the best dubstep" etc. Well what if you didn't consider it dubstep? Is it better then? I think so.

13. eR DoN (14)
Seattle-based jazzy trip-hop producer. Not your typical jazzy trip-hop/downtempo, it sounds more like real jazz for some reason. At least that's the impression I get. I ordered the CD as soon as I heard the samples on a local online shop, and the list of players is impressive...this isn't just sampled jazz. Last.fm has full tracks of the whole album. Anyway I really like the album.

I have Clark's Turning Dragons which is stellar. Must get some more!
I listened twice to the Flying Lotus album Los Angeles album and it just did absolutely nothing for me yet many are raving about it
The Budos Band & Boom7 Birds both sound like something I would like.
Leatherface are good for a blast now and again but nothing mindblowing for me.
I have A Red Sparowes album At The Soundless Dawn and like yourself, I was unimpressed after hearing good things.
Heard the name Boxcutter a lot and still haven't followed up on that. Great list though!
Glad you liked The Electric Banana!
