music update – Explosions in the Sky edition

I’m hoping to release the first version of the Steam widget this evening. It’s been quite functional since Saturday. I’m just being strongly reminded on how little I know about design aesthetics. 😉 Ugly or not–I’m going to get the first iteration out. I figure there’s always v1.1, right?

In the meantime, a music update:

Noisettes – What’s the Time Mr. Wolf?
Explosions in the Sky – Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth
Explosions in the Sky – The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place
The White Stripes – Under Great White Northern Lights
Arcade Fire – Funeral
The Dead Weather – Sea of Cowards
Sunset Rubdown – Random Spirit Lovers
The Beatles – Let It Be
Weezer – Weezer (Red Album)
Archers of Loaf – Vee Vee
Janelle Monae – The ArchAndroid

I’m generally meh about Explosions in the Sky, but they make a great accompaniment to programming. It’s a really nice fit when one of their bajillion crescendos matches up with fixing an annoying bug. Also, their instrumental nature makes them less piercing than other more jarring forms of rock.
