    Recommend me some rock/alt-country

    sounds as though you would like Ryan Bingham.   a friend showed me a couple of his albums over the summer and I have become a huge fan.  Mescalito is probably the best place to start.  He had a new one out recently which is good too, Rust Junky.

    what is the deal with Noze? I think I will go see them play next week really like the song Encore they have up on the myspace Nôze on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads reminds me a lot of the recent Isolee single October/Nightingale, which rules of course...

    Breakbeats, Dubstep and Drum N' Bass:

    did you ever check out Quake Trap? Shaggy Manatee's (of quake trap) solo LP is awesome, In Between Quake Breaks Vol. 1 is really dark with glitchy stuff and sick drums may be hard to find and I believe vinyl only you can check out some samples at their online store + quake trap +...
