The last few months has been sort of dry for music, for me anyway. I had to get my fix this week, though.
The new Black Rebel Motorcycle Club album is in the headphones right now. It's quite a departure from the first two albums, but an excellent record on it's own.
The New Pornographers Twin Cinema has got about a half-spin, so I can't give a full opinion on it. But from what I've heard, I get the feeling it's going to either really grow on me or collect some dust. We'll see.
The Greenhornes are another band to keep your ears open for. They've been consistently getting better and better over the last several years. Their latest EP, East Grand Blues, is an excellent primer for their next full length and V2 debut. EGB is streaming at their website, give it a listen.
Some other recent bargain bin purchases:
Yatsura - Slain by Yatsura
The Lemonheads - Lovey
Noise Addict - Meet The Real You
Silkworm - Firewater
The fourth quarter is shaping up to be pretty decent, with these albums up early on:
Sigur Ros - Takk (September 13)
The American Analog Set - Set Free (September 20)
Calla - Collisions (September 27)
Franz Ferdinand - You Could Have It So Much Better (October 4)
Rogue Wave - Descended Like Vultures (October 25)
Fiery Furnaces - Rehearsing My Choir (October 25)
Good thing I get three paychecks in December.
