Open Thread: What are you listening to?

Got any new finds, old finds or even new-old or old-new finds? What's clogging up your iPod, stuck in your CD player or #1 in your audioscrobbler profile? Enjoy an open thread today on music.

I've been rather open to suggestion lately and have been really enjoying Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere, Danger Mouse's Grey Album (Jay-Z's Black Album mixed with The Beatles White Album), Dungeon Family and on a non-hip-hop tip Arcade Fire. None of that is groundbreakingly obscure or anything, but all were things I'd heard enough about from friends and from Rolling Stone or other blogs to make me go check them out.

Speak your mind! What's grabbed your attention, or what haven't you been able to shake? Also, don't forget to sound off on Second City for a chance to win a very cool book and CD!

If you're enjoying the Grey Album, try Danger Mouse's collaboration with MF Doom called The Mouse and the Mask. It's synergized with Cartoon Network's Adult Swim - I can't tolerate most of the shows on Adult Swim, but when the samples are taken out of context they're pretty amusing.

For rock and roll, try The Hold Steady's Separation Sunday - rockin' good, and it name drops Ybor City.

I'll have to check that out, Joel.

Thanks for the lead!

Anyone else?
