The World According to Ivana Stab

Top 5

According to my last.fm, these were the five artists I listened to most this week…


Outrun: My top artists this week were really disproportionate. I had 39 listens for Outrun, followed by 18 for the next top artist. I was writing a review of Outrun’s album Futurenature at the time so it reminded me of just how good this band is. In reality I listened to them a lot more, but most of it was in my room on my stereo where last.fm can’t count. I had a few one-girl dance parties in there when I should have been writing my essay.

Outrun – Out of the Ashes



Soundgarden: I bought Badmotorfinger this week because I’d been listening to ‘Jesus Christ Pose’ and ‘Loud Love’ on repeat on my iPod. I only had a few songs by Soundgarden so I thought it was time to buy one of their albums. I didn’t actually like it too much but there are a few really good songs on there. And the video clips to the aforementioned songs are enough to keep me liking this band.

Soundgarden – Jesus Christ Pose



Bloc Party: For a long time I claimed not to like Bloc Party. I’m not sure why. I think I considered them boring or something? A few weeks ago I was up really late and rage was playing a lot of Bloc Party clips and I realised I kind of liked their music. So I’ve been listening to the few songs I have by them and waiting to get some cash-money so I can buy one of their CDs.

Bloc Party – Hunting For Witches



Bridezilla: I’ve been hearing a bit about them on FBi again so I assume they must be recording new music which is exciting! Seeing this band live is almost a magical experience. They’re just so lovely.

Bridezilla – St Francine



The Academy Is…: I wasn’t sure what music I was in the mood for the other day so I scrolled through my music folder and stumbled upon TAI. I was a little obsessed with them for a while. Now I realise they’re really not anything special musically speaking but they’re just such a sweet band and I had fun when I was in love with them. Plus, TAI TV was hilarious! I have no idea what they’re up to these days. I stopped paying attention after Santi.
