Air is also a favorite for work,
I listen a lot to Yoshinori Sunahara "Panam Sound of the 70's" and "Take of and Landing"

Electronic Tango like "Gotan Project", "Otros Aires" have a nice tempo .

It inspires Art or Poetry, objects that are not so much about the use, but have something else like a decanter, cups, or once a piece of Baroque Jewelry or Decorative objects/furniture/lamps It once inspired a winter garden.
I love it... but it softens, makes me lose my edge so bad. Hits me somewhere where reason is useless and before I know I am mush. So it is productive in a different way ...

does every designer have the same iTunes library?

No, and yes Yo. Haha I was starting to think the same thing. I have stopped listening to the interweb radeooze. In late I have been spinning Ramones, Karen O, Louis Armstrong, Otis Redding, Winston Pickett, Kraftworks, and old Ray Charles on my tech. I want to pick up all the early Beastie boys studio albums too.

I stopped listening to my itunes and now listen to MOG or Pandora. Somehow even with 1000's of songs on itunes I can never find anything I want to listen to. More than anything I listen to movie scores while I work. Thomas Newman rocks!

recently I have been obsessed with;
J Dilla beats
MF Doom
Madlib
Motown music
Pharoah Monch
Q Tip's Renaissance Album
Mos Def
Erykah Badu
D'Angelo
Jamie T
Nas - Illmatic
Jeru The Damaja
Gang Starr

For some reason I find this stuff helps me to concentrate and get the sketching flowing, especially with the J Dilla and Madlib beats on a loop!

Currently digging: Broken Bells, and Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros. And, as much as I hate to admit it: Vampire Weekend's new album. It's eerily similar to Paul Simon's Graceland.

Got the latest Gorillaz, and was horribly disappointed.

I'm hearing you Yo, on the K&D. Such awesome stuff layered together in there.

Hey NURB,

Did you get the proper version of Plastic Beach? I heard, what I thought was, the new album... was terribly disappointed, and then found out that it wasn't the proper album. I like the proper one quite a bit more after a cursory listen.

I guess I don't know... I assume it's right. I got the iTunes version the day it came out. Is that the wrong one?

I really like the album, but I'm a fan of both The Shins and Danger Mouse so it's win, win in my book.

Some older uk hip-hop - mark b & blade, taskforce/chester p, roots manuva, braintax, terra firma/klashnekoff, dr. syntax

By the end of the day it will be a couple hours of amon amarth


Also eagerly awaiting the Distant Relatives album from Nas and Damian Marley.
