Looking for Alaska by John Green. It's a young adult book about some teenagers that go off to boarding school together and get into some good ole tomfoolery. I laughed quite a bit, but I also teared up at some parts (which I don't normally do). I finished it in a sitting, it's pretty easy to read.
The Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. I've only read the first two so far but I randomly picked up this gargantuan book with five of the novels in one. Definitely starting over from the beginning. This book tends to show up on internet forums all the time but I can't stress how funny it is.
Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman. Not his best work but I read it a week or two ago and found it pretty funny. I'd classify it around fantasy/humor/adventure.
I have been listening to a "fuzz folk" band called GASHCAT. They recorded their first album on a boat and remind me a lot of Neutral Milk Hotel, very enjoyable!
The entire album is pretty awesome, I think you'll enjoy it. It's hard to put into words what kind of music they perform, but I still like the "Experimental Outer-space Jam" tag that I've heard used.
Giraffes? Giraffes! - More Skin with Milk-Mouth is a great instrumental and math-rock album. I just started listening to them again. My favorites off the album are probably "I am shimer..." and "A Quick One, While She's Away." The last track is very soothing to me.
I am also in love with Perpetuum Mobile by the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. It's a pretty old song and I'm sure it was probably in a commercial, but I still enjoy every minute of it. It makes me want to reflect on life and contemplate what my future will be like.
Thanks for the suggestions! I haven't listened to any new math rock in a while, but I'll definitely be listening to Bulletproof Tiger more in depth this week.
Thanks for the rec, that was the first artist I checked out in this thread!
I haven't listened to too much new music this week. However, I have really been enjoying the track Sunshine by Atmosphere.
