So everywhere I go, people are always asking me, "Aerin, what sort of music do you like?". Not really, because I go largely ignored, but if they DID ask, I would certainly tell them all about it.

To begin with, I'm a big fan of shoegaze. Well, more like a fair-weather friend of shoegaze, because some of it makes me cringe, but even the really dull, repetitive stuff (yes, you, Catherine Wheel. I am in fact talking to you) is pretty darn good.

This is Curve. Curve is awesome, even if you don't like the guitar-reverb-and-ticky-ticky-drum-machine sound.

I also like gothic music. It was the first genre of music that ever made me go, "Hey, I like music!"

Wolfsheim- Approaching Lightspeed

Hungry Lucy- Grave (Digger Remix)

Sometimes I listen to pop. I really like a lot of nineties pop, because it had a sort of edginess that I lack. Do you like Garbage? You should.

Garbage- Queer

I used to be a big damn AFI fan. Now I'm a quiet, slightly embarassed AFI fan. Also, Davey got really old, you know? It's scary. I can see myself staring, ashen-faced, at a newpaper in 40 years, going "What? He died? He's not 26 forever?". Loving Davey, or any other teenage hearthrob, means facing one's own mortality.

AFI- End Transmission. If you download only one of these songs, let it be this one. I really like this song, but I wish it had a slightly different sound. It's a 'spending the apocalypse with the one you love, shooting zombies to pass the time' song, but there's something off about it. If I had a terminal illness, I would use my Make A Wish Foundation wish to get VNV Nation to remix this song. Then I would die happily.

Lastly, as a closing act, we have Cocteau Twins. Guaranteed to make everyone in earshot say "What in the world are you listening to?". It sounds like Claire Voyant drowning in a bubble bath.

I love the Cocteau Twins for their ruthless refusal to make any goddamn sense.

The first Cocteau Twins song I heard was "Heaven Or Las Vegas", and I could have sworn a couple of the verses were in French. I'm still struggling with the concept that the lyrics are in English.

Garbage was, and still is, one of my favorite bands. They're also one of only three bands (well, two that I've ever REALLY made an effort) where I've tried to get their singles as well.
