    “Keeping Track of Time” by Club 8 

    From their eponymous album.

    A very upbeat end to the album.

    “I wasn’t much of a fight” by Club 8 

    From the album “Strangely Beautiful”

    This album is probably one of their best. You might need to be depressed to really enjoy it. The album “The boy who couldn’t stop dreaming” is probably a happier analogue.

    Club 8 is one of the most popular Swedish indie / twee pop bands. Johan AngergÄrd alone is reponsible for the majority of great modern (post-95?) twee pop.

    "The only one who knows" by Lake Ruth 

    Other great songs from the album (Actual Entity):

    The Timekeeper’s Lament

    Helium

    Dr. Snow and the Broad Street Pump

    Cabin Fever

    A Victimless Crime

    I didn’t like the newer album (Birds of America) at all.

    Don’t rehearse conversations 

    I have learnt this after much toil. It is a crutch. When you practise something, you give it power over you. In the realm of human relationships (as all communication is), it initiates you into a cult.

    Better a silver-tongued observer that fails often.

    "I'd Rather Dance With You" by Kings Of Convenience 

    I wish I was this cool

    lyrics:
    I’d rather dance with you than talk with you
    So why don’t we just move into the other room
    There’s space for us to shake, and hey, I like this tune

    Even if I could hear what you said
    I doubt my reply would be interesting for you to hear
    Because I haven’t read a single book all year
    And the only film I saw, I didn’t like it at all

    I’d rather dance, I’d rather dance than talk with you
    I’d rather dance, I’d rather dance than talk with you
    I’d rather dance, I’d rather dance than talk with you

    The music’s too loud and the noise from the crowd
    Increases the chance of misinterpretation
    So let your hips do the talking
    I’ll make you laugh by acting like the guy who sings
    And you’ll make me smile by really getting into the swing
    Getting into the swing, getting into the swing
    Getting into the swing, getting into the swing
    Getting into the swing, getting into the swing
    Getting into the swing, getting into the swing…

      Hello.
      We all have different musical tastes.
      But you may like these: Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci; Super Furry Animals; Wampire; Sea Oleena; Dana Buoy; Marijuana Deathsquads; Sigur Ros; Flaming Lips (Yoshimi and earlier).

      You may not like any of that. I confess I didn’t like any of the songs you posted, all derivative rock, all sound the same. The stuff I have shared is alternative, different, mostly guitar, although I like electronic too.

        Thanks for the comment! I’m only familiar with Sea Oleena and Flaming Lips, I’ll give the others a listen.

        I agree, most of them sound the same but I remember the albums completely after listening to them a couple of times. I usually play the entire album and not individual songs. All of these are hammered in my brain with a life of their own and they don’t sound very similar to me now.

    “Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!” by Godspeed You! Black Emperor 

    Are you off to war? Then this is for you.

    I like it so much, I’m reposting it.

    Honestly, this isn’t their seminal album, *that* is on another level.

    “The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place” by Explosions in the Sky 

    This is an incredible album. It build up and the last track (“your hand in mine”) is the best.
