New Old

I'm a sucker for "new" old singles. Slap a new date on a single and I'm buying.

Headhunter 2000: Part 1 - Used.

Newer Sounds

A "goth" throwback? "Post-punk?"I don't know. That works for me. I'm sure there's a much better description out there. Whatever. I'm into it.

Partly Faithful - The Beehive. iTunes.

Lazy! Cheap!

I'm a little disappointed that I haven't managed to see Echo & The Bunnymen the few times they've been here in recent history. Laziness/cheapness always win.

Echo & The Bunnymen - Porcupine. Used.

Of course I enjoy the Swedish pop sounds of Club 8.

I don't enjoy thinking of S Club 7 every time I see their name.

Club 8 -  I'm Not Gonna Grow Old. iTunes.

I own every Culture Club studio release. I'm not sure why I felt the need to purchase a "best of."

Culture Club - The Best of Culture Club. Used.

Newer Sounds (To Me At Least)

I had been reading about the Islet LP. They sounded interesting. And they're Welsh. So of course I was going to check them out. I ended up buying something cheaper and older on iTunes.

There's something about this release that reminds me of The Beta Band. A band I run hot and cold on. But I'm really enjoying this.

Islet - Celebrate This Place. iTunes.

O Canada

I feel them slowly slipping into obscurity, but Chokehold are a nineties favorite.

I was supposed to see them once. But the show was shut down.

So I never got to see them.

Which is a shame, because I don't see a reunion anywhere on the horizon.

Chokehold - Content With Dying. Mike. Used.

When I first read about Dirty Beaches I thought I'd be really into them.

I'm not.

That can always change. But right now? No.

Dirty Beaches - Lonely Runner/Stye Eye. iTunes.

I'm probably remembering this wrong.

But I seem to recall this record being very sought after at some point.

Converge - Halo In a Haystack. Mike. Used.

The name Haraket sounds like it should belong to a screamy hardcore band on Gravity.

But it's not.

It's a pretty great band out of the UK that I saw mentioned in a blurb about King Krule (also great).

Haraket - Taint & Attgo. iTunes.

I never really bothered with Sleater-Kinney until Portlandia aired.

True story.

Sleater-Kinney. Mike. Used.
