Not Much To Say

I've always liked Leftfield in a casual sense. Any time I've heard them, I've liked what I was hearing.

This is the only thing I've ever managed to buy.

Leftfield - Rhythm and Stealth. Used.

Every time I press play all I can think of is Twin Peaks.

It's soothing.

"Marble World" less soothing. Still good.

Silver Fox - Waves On In/Marble World. iTunes.

Not particularly new anymore but...

Bloodsports doesn't come close to the quality of the debut, Dog Man Star or the Stay Together EP. But holy shit, it's Suede, so it's still better than most releases.

I actually think it's better than A New Morning, which was good, but a bit underwhelming. I think Bloodsports is as good as the often underrated Coming Up.

I first heard Suede on a family trip to England in 1993. I picked up the debut immediately. Yet in twenty years I still haven't managed to see them. One of my life's great musical regrets.

Their return gives me hope. But it hasn't happened yet.

Throwback

Since a lot of younger bands seem to be channeling the sounds of the nineties, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the return of female fronted indie rock in the vein of Helium, Unrest, Velocity Girl, Tsunami, etc...

I can't be the only one.

Maybe it already exists.

Helium - The Magic City. amazon.com. Used.

I've yet to meet a Title Fight release I didn't love. This is no different. They deserve all the success that has come their way.

I think it's awesome that they're on Revelation now.

Caught In A Crowd is easily one of my favorite current hardcore bands. I'm a little bummed that I haven't managed to see them yet. Thankfully they're playing soon.

Now all I need to do is motivate my old man ass to attend.

Caught In A Crowd - The Fight. React Records. New.

Sorry for the delay in posting.

There are a few current labels I'll pretty much buy releases on based only on the description. Triple B is one such label. I'm pretty sure I only grabbed this because it said "Richmond hardcore." Sometimes that's all it takes.

I'm not one to hit up Bandcamp or sample things before buying. The majority of my music buying life has been based on picking stuff up that looks interesting, or I heard about, or on a certain label, etc. Granted that got fairly pricey with imports. But it didn't stop me.

I'm glad I picked this up. Solid sound trending towards the "harder" end of things and worth checking out.

Friend or Foe - Outsider. Triple B. New.

Replaced

I first got the Devo greatest hits package for my sixteenth birthday. And some point I made the terrible mistake of selling it. 

Thankfully it's back in my collection.

Devo - Greatest Hits. amazon.com. Used.

I realize there was a Clear before this Clear. 

But I like this one better.
