Now Listen

Momus is genius. I wish more people recognized this.

I've never really had anyone to discuss this with.

Sure, I tell people of his genius. No one listens.

Momus - Slender Sherbet. Amazon.com. New.

I don't have much to say about this band.

I wasn't terribly impressed when they came out.

But then I grew to enjoy them.

People really loved them. Do they still?

Renee Heartfelt - Magdalene. Mike. Used.

Train Hopping Hobos

I remember rumors of a Chokehold reunion a few years ago. I wonder if that ever happened.

A friend of mine told me one of them had become a train hopper. So I wonder if a reunion would even be possible.

Seventy Eight Days - Revolution Through Anonymity. Used.

Hurricane Sebadoh

I'm riding out Hurricane Sandy at home.

Hopefully I can make a few posts today.

Sebadoh - It's All You. Amazon.com. Used.


For a good ten years I thought the band Rodan was named after the artist "Rodan." As it turns out the artist's name is "Rodin" and I'm an idiot.

I've never been to the Rodin Museum. And this is a real shame on my part. But again. I'm an idiot.

Rodan - How the Winter Was Passed. Mike. Used.

This is a newish band. Well, new to me. This EP came out a couple of years ago. I bought it in anticipation of the full-length which came out this past week.


Egyptian Hip Hop - Some Reptiles Grew Wings. iTunes.

Boy Band

I had heard a lot about this band but sort of pushed it to the back of my mind. After catching their video on NewNowNext I was reminded to buy the album.

I like it. A lot.

Even if their name sounds like a boy band.

Alt-J - An Awesome Wave. Amazon.com. Used.

Circa 1993/1994 Seaweed was my favorite band. They hold up well.

Seaweed - Measure. eBay. Used.

I bought this for Sense Field. I didn't really know much about Onelinedrawing. Which I learned is an individual. Not a band.

Sense Field/Onelinedrawing. Amazon.com. Used.

Not Off!

As a ten year old beginning to become obsessed with punk rock, I somehow missed out on Circle Jerks.

Black Flag. Check. Circle Jerks. No.

They are currently on my list of discographies to explore.

Off! - Live At Generation Records. AKA Music. New.

I don't know anything about Shoulder.

Someone fill me in.

Morning Again/Shoulder. Mike. Used.

Some months ago I decided to dive into world pop. South America made my list. Colombia my sub list.

Enter Shakira.

I figured she was as good a jumping off point as any.

Shakira - Laundry Service. Amazon.com. Used.

Cool, Not Corny

Nick turned me onto this band a few years ago.

The video made me a believer:

Explore the Lime discography. You will not be disappointed.

(You might. But you shouldn't be.)

Lime - Lime: The Greatest Hits. iTunes.

Heard Of, Not Heard

I kept hearing about The Vaccines over the past year or two. I never bothered to listen to them. Old (younger) me would have pre-ordered the imports on word of mouth alone. But I've tried to reel in my import habit.

That being said, I caught a video on NewNowNext and realized I had been missing out on a pretty solid rock band.

Ordered immediately.

The Vaccines - What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? Amazon.com. New.

New Stuff

Pet Shop Boys continue to deliver.

I particularly like the first single, "Winner."

Pet Shop Boys - Elysium. Amazon.com. New.

I like this album a lot. But. Let's not be mistaken. It's more of the same.

The XX - Coexist. Amazon.com. New.

Florida metalcore that did not go on to Sleigh Bells.

Morning Again - My Statement of Life In a Dying World. Mike. Used.

I might be mistaken, but I believe there is a Knife Fight discography out there. I need it.

Knife Fight. Mike. Used.
