Newer Sounds

In the past few months I've purchased new releases from Forest and Forrests. That's just a little confusing.

Forest - Sweetcure EP. iTunes.

There was a period of time where I was obsessed with Gravity. Like Ebullition, some releases have aged better than others. I think Antioch Arrow holds up fairly well.

I always loved the super DIY feel of most of the releases, particularly the vinyl. The Lady Is a Cat is no exception.

Antioch Arrow - The Lady Is a Cat. Mike. Used.

Based on nothing, I had fairly low expectations for Virginia Wing.

How wrong I was. It's really great. It has that nineties vibe that I loved in the nineties. And that I'm currently loving during this "revival."

Virginia Wing - Red Sails. iTunes.

My favorite Youth of Today release.

And as much as I love Shelter, probably my favorite Cappo release.

While I'm at it, one of my top five favorite Revelation releases.

Youth of Today.

You And

Cathy really likes You and I. I think there are a lot of people that really like You and I. This seven inch might have been the first time I really listened to them.

You and I - The First Seven Inch. Mike. Used.

It took becoming an adult for me to really appreciate Endpoint.

I couldn't tell you why.

I feel like I'll occasionally give bands more credit than they deserve when they're Welsh. But that is not the case with The Darling Buds. Fully deserving of any and all praise.

The Darling Buds - Crawdaddy. amazon.com. Used.

Easily one of the best things I've been listening to as of late.

So you should be listening to them as well. Not really. But you should.

Girls Names - The New Life. iTunes.

The Jam: Handful of releases.

The Style Council: Even more releases.

Paul Weller: One song.

The Jam - Setting Sons. amazon.com. Used.

Newer Sounds (To Me At Least)

I read about a newer release and it sounded interesting. So I picked up a cheaper, older option on iTunes to give it a shot.

Not bad at all.

I'm glad I have rededicated myself to reading about new releases, new bands. It's been one of my favorite things to do since childhood. So it's always disappointing when I realize I've gotten away from it for a bit. Although I spend less money in those periods.

Spectrals - Get A Grip. iTunes.
