New Rapture Track...thank you video game soundtracks :)
From within a slew of slightly underwhelming new tracks from established bands (I'm hoping that 'Rage (Rat Is Dead)', 'Violet Hill' and 'Hippy's Son' aren't the best things on the new albums from CSS, Coldplay and Dirty Pretty Things respectively; as for Oasis and The Vines, I've kinda given up hope :( ), comes something actually totally awesome, from none other than The Rapture.
Soundtracks, especially game soundtracks, seem to have loads of hidden gems. The soundtrack to Driver: Parallel Lines features a track by none other than the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (I wanna new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album pleeeease...), and none other than Regina Spektor pops up on the soundtrack to the new Narnia movie (euurgh..) with a new song (if anyone knows how I'd get hold of it, pleeeease let me know...).
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs track, which also appears on the Spiderman 3 soundtrack, is insanely good, though I don't know whether it would have fitted on Show Your Bones. Download it:

*Why?* Why not? Quit with the aggressive questioning, a'rite?
*What d'ya like?* Umm, music, movies and TV, literature, life most of the time.
*What music?* Right now, Mystery Jets, Elbow and LCD Soundsystem are making me happy. Also stuff like bright eyes, libertines, sufjan stevens, arcade fire, beck, pj harvey, pulp, the smiths...
*What movies?* eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, lost in translation, almost famous, magnolia, the big lebowski, edward scissorhands, pan's labyrinth, the royal tenenbaums &c; TV-wise, I'm thinking Six Feet Under, The Office (UK and even moreso US), The Sopranos, The Wire, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Firefly, Arrested Development, Spaced, Extras, Peep Show...
*What literature?* Been mostly reading my university reading list. At the moment, it's Shakespeare. If held at gunpoint, favourite book ever is 'Underworld' by Don DeLillo.
