I thought that there was a thread here similar to the "last movie you watched thread" but for music, however, upon searching, I couldn't find one! I could just be a bad searcher and just missed it...buuuut... even if that is the case, I say we start a new one!

I say here people shall list recent CDs/tapes/records/mp3's that they have recently purchased (or obtained by other, less savory means... or more savory if you like it that way). Also: recent concerts could be listed as well if you want to share your experience...!

IT BEGINS NOW.

My most recently acquired music: Iron and Wine/Calexico split EP, "Lays in the Reigns," which is (I believe) set to release Sept. 20th.

Frankly, I have always found both of these bands somewhat bland. Not bad by any means. I mean, they're somewhat enjoyable in the right setting. However, overall, they're definitely nothing I would call great. And this split really didn't change my mind. It's okay, definitely listenable, but nothing I would get excited over.

NOW IT'S YOUR TURN.... YOU KNOW, IF YOU WANT.

Aww...I just got In The Reins a week or two ago, I found it really amazing. "He lays in the reins", "16, maybe less" and "Dead man's will" sound like the best I&W-songs, with an extra twist due to the Calexico-collab. I haven't head anything by Calexico before, but I really love Iron&Wine..

Lately aquired:

Sufjan Stevens: Illinois - a few amazing tracks (like John Wayne Gacy Jr. and Come on! Feel The Illinoise!) and a lot of not-that-interestning ones.

Dirty Three: Whatever you love, you are - also worth getting.

That Elvis album with the number one hits.

I'm disappointed Viva las vegas isn't on there

Um... the Arcade Fire EP. It's good.

Also: Scissor Sisters. I'm a huge fan of the funk revival.

Last thing I bought was Odelay by Beck. Also: a few A Certain Ratio MP3s but I didn't exactly pay for those.

I haven't bought anything in a while... but that last thing was Guerrilla by Super Furry Animals! I couldn't begin saying how great they are! I'll try to describe them, but it'll probably be way of... Imagine a combination of The Boy Least Likely To, Television, and Gorillaz.

Yesterday was my day to support the artists that I've been enjoying so I bought:

Spoon -- Gimmie Fiction. Straightforward rocking. Nice.

Sufjan Stevens -- Come on Feel The Illinois. I've actually been enjoying this more than you Stannis. I know what you mean because that's how I felt about the new Eels CD but I've been enjoying all of the tracks on Illinois. In addition to the tracks you mentioned, Concerning The UFO..., Decateur, and the Living Dead are also all standouts for me. Overall I feel like it's a little more whimsical in places than Michigan, but without getting gimmicky.

The Mountain Goats -- The Sunset Tree. Recommended by everyone here so I'm sure I don't need to sing its praises.

Then, based on the excited thread on the subject, I bought The New Pornagraphers, Twin Cinema, without previewing it first, which is something I swore I would stop doing but I'm glad I broke my rule because I love this CD. Thanks (again) guys!

As a side note, there aren't a lot of record stores around here so on Sunday I drove an hour and went to three major chains without finding any of the CDs I was looking for (aside from Spoon). Then I remembered that a new record store opened in the town I work. He's got a really small inventory but he used to be a producer and has excellent taste. Sure enough, he had everything I was looking for. Yay small businessman!

McFly: Room on the 3rd Floor


They're crazy and British and fun! I also just preordered their next CD but I'm not positive that counts?

I most recently picked up Yoshimi Battle the Pink Robots by The Flaming Lips. It's intesnsely good stuff and it makes my ears happy to hear it.

The next cd I plan to buy will be the new Death Cab one coming out soon (Aug 30 I believe?) unless something bright and shint distracts me first.

If Yoshimi was your first Lips purchase by any chance (as it tends to be with a lot of people), I highly reccomend backtracking through their catalog a bit. For one, Yoshimi is pretty great, but the previous album The Soft Bulletin had a similar mood (but with less bleepy synth sounds and more faux orchestral synth sounds) and was even better. Their earlier more guitar-based stuff could be pretty awesome as well.

Also:

Spoon - Gimme Ficton. I bought this at their show, and had never heard a full album before. They had songs I really liked and ones that didn't really do anything for me, but fortunately this particular album had lots of songs I liked.

This weekend I saw performing, among dozens of others, Richard Laviolette, who's local to Owen Sound, and very, very talented. Incredible.
I got his CD 'Mary Carl',and got it autographed with "hey andy! Don't you hate pants? Richard Laviolette." He does very emotional, gogeous music, with great acoustic guitar. http://www.newmusiccanada.com/genres/artist.cfm?mode=longBio&Band_Id=14741

I also bought in the presence of the artist Liam Titcomb's album.
He's from Toronto, like 17 years old, and seems like a nice guy. I got a chance to talk with him a few times. We had a mutual friend, too. I recommend going to see him if he comes near you, he's touring now, and becoming very successful. He autographed it "To Andrew... Thanks! Love Liam Titcomb I Wuv Woo " Buy his CD. Make him more famous. His website's very well done, too: www.liamtitcomb.com

Titcomb is easily the best surname I have heard this week.

Okay, me too then.

Most recent album I acquired is Elevator by Hot Hot Heat.
It's great!

I also just got... everything by Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry, and Brian Eno.

I kinda have, actually, because it's contained in Wonderland and I just preordered that from Amazon UK. It's a pretty good song!



Also:

I totally did exactly what quetzal said with buying Yoshimi and then buying The Soft Bulletin because some music friends told me that I'd like it if I liked Yoshimi, and I've certainly never regretted it! True story!

TALES OF INVERSE: Somone told me The Soft Bulletin sucked, so I bought it out of spite, and liked it so much that I bought Yoshimi.

Really? I was thinking of buying it, but was sort of worried he might have gone all lounge music on us, judging by the cover!

Astral Weeks was his second full-length ever... that's 1968.

i too just purchased the new sufjan stevens! good good stuff. mostly, though, i tend to download albums if i've never heard them. if they're good, i feel extremely guilty for having acquired them free, so i'll go out and buy them. so this means i also recently bought source tags & codes by ...and you will know us by the trail of dead. very awesome album!

Yeah, Astral Weeks is good. Honestly, I have a hard time really getting into Van Morrison's albums, but I can tell there's a lot there if only I would sit down and try. Probably I should make a tape of it to listen to in the car. That worked for Moondance!

My latest music purchase consisted of:
Elvis Presley - Suspicious Minds
Paul Anka - Rock Swings
Clutch - Blast Tyrant

Not a representative sample of my music tastes unfortunately!
