Now with 15% less cynicism

Sort of. I still don't like being kidded all that much. Don't prod me today, I'm sensitive.

Track list:

1. The Reasonable Men - the reasonable men - saloon song

Comments: Delightful.

2. Handsome Furs - plague park - handsome furs hate this town

Comments: But they hate it in such a lovely way. This is fantastic, I want it for Christmas.

**and now, a brief discussion of the film Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, which ROCKED MY FACE OFF. So amazing. Also a small clip from the song: Ticket to Hollywood

3. The Superfantastics - pop-up book - the only one I c++ is u++

Comments: This rules. I love nerd love lo-fi pop. I don't care how much of it they write, I love it to the limit!

4. Chet - flight against darkness - dollarton harbour

Comments: Unremittingly excellent.

5. Derek Robinson & Matt Brown - the indifferent ep - how we chose to travel

Comments: Lovin' songs about travel since 1981.

6. The Book of Lists - the book of lists - little jerk

Comments: Insult rock, very nice.

7. Bears - shortest day of the year - you can tell

Comments: cripplingly adorable album cover. Also really liking how this is gently rocking me into liking life. Stop that Bears, another five minutes and I'll be hugging strangers! Thankfully this song is only three minutes long or I would be humiliating myself and possibly getting in trouble with the po-po.

8. Illfit Outfit - proudly resenting illfit outfit - thee & me

Comments: Pinkest album ever not to feature girls. I approve. This is pretty great. I like the shocking vocals, which seem to say, my emotions are getting the better of me, but I am still unwaveringly cool, and very artistic, and my trousers are tight also. Love it.

9. Sean Na Na - family trees or cope we must - hairspray

Comments: Relaxed and lovely.
