Quarterly music round-up


September is behind us, and so are August and July. Time for a quarter-annual update on the stuff I listen to! Luckily Last.FM is not only useful for keeping track of concerts (as I wrote about earlier), but it also keeps track of your listening habits. The graph above is for example a visualization of my listening history over the last three months, made with the tool LastGraph. Last.FM itself produces plain text lists, like the top albums you've listened to. Here are mine:
  1. The Maccabees - Wall of arms
  2. Throw me the statue - Creaturesque
  3. Sunset Rubdown - Dragonslayer
  4. Bill Callahan - Sometimes I wish we were an eagle
  5. The Dodos - Time to die
  6. Phoenix - Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix
  7. Dan Auerbach - Keep it hid
  8. The National - Boxer
  9. The Maccabees - Colour it in
  10. Jay Reatard - Watch me fall
Almost all are of this year (save no. 8 & 9), so there's a reasonable chance they will make it to my end-of-the-year list. But for that we'll have to wait another three months.
