Have You Seen Me?

The Stone Roses reunion shows interest me less than seeing Ian Brown again.

It's unlikely I'll get to see either.

I can't find the disc itself in my "piles to be filed" so no photograph.

Ian Brown - Corpses. Used.

I'm fascinated by this band. A strange amalgam of psyche, rock and I guess what people are referring to as "occult metal." I cannot stop listening. Or watching.

Purson - Leaning On a Bear. iTunes.

I had the idea to pick up every Crowded House CD single along with the albums. I think I'm abandoning that plan. I'm doing it for too many bands.

Crowded House - Distant Sun. Used.

Newer Sounds (New To Me)

I only recently heard of this band. Are they a band?

I liked the description. And I liked the artwork for this release. I enjoy it enough to check out some more.

The Boy Least Likely To - A Fairytale Ending. iTunes.

Sub Pop Singles Club

I try to pick up any Sub Pop Singles Club releases that pop up on eBay or that I happen to stumble on in record stores.

There are some classic bands on these releases.

There are also some bands I never heard of before and will likely never hear after.

Velvet Monkeys are one such band.

Velvet Monkeys - Rock the Nation. eBay. Used.

Newer Sounds

There are elements of Django Django that remind me of why I would get real excited for Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party, etc. a few years ago. Not that they're the same. Not by any stretch. There are just aspects that lump them together in my brain.

I regret not going to see them at Union Transfer a few months ago.

Django Django. Used.

It's a shame I've waited so long to buy up the XTC discography. Their "known" singles don't really do them justice.

XTC - Nonsuch. Used.

Newer Sounds (Not Really)

These are older sounds, but I like the newer release.

Of course the best Revelation anniversary release came from the show people cared about least.

Thankfully extras were posted to RevHQ. And I snatched one up immediately.

Rev25 Chicago. RevHQ. New.

I don't have much to say about this beyond thinking it's very good and I'm looking forward to more material. Very good.

JAWS - Friend Like You. iTunes.

Bad Cover Song

New Order might be my favorite band, but I prefer this cover to the original.

Velocity Girl - Your Silent Face/You're So Good To Me. eBay. Used.

Newer Sounds

I'm ok with the continued nineties worship that keeps coming out. This being particularly good.

Low Sea - Remote Viewing. iTunes.
