I love it when I go to Graywhale and the guys start playing stuff they think I’d be interested in. That’s just awesome. Thanks!!
By that, I mean the new Scout Niblett CD that came out in January, Calcination of Scout Niblett. It sounded like new Joanna Newsom, but nothing I recognized. “No, man. This is Scout Niblett.” So she’s on my radar of things to watch out for.
Kyle also recommended Songs: Ohia’s last/Magnolia Electric Co.’s first CD, Magnolia Electric Co. He has pretty impeccable taste in music, so I just ordered it on Amazon.
Anyway, here’s today’s list.
- HIM – Sworn Eyes (this is not to be confused with H.I.M.)
- The Von Bondies – Pawn Shoppe Heart
- The Standard – Albatross
- Spiral Beach – Ball
- Nedelle – From the Lion’s Mouth
- Julie Doiron – Heart and Crime
- Freakwater – Old Paint
- Moonraker – Peeg Vater
- Endochine – Day Two
- Morcheeba – The Antidote
- Morcheeba – Charango
I’ve heard some of Morcheeba’s stuff, but that was mostly from the mid-90s, circa Who Can You Trust and Big Calm. Very Tricky/Sneaker Pimps type stuff.
Anyway, I’m feeling way under the weather today, so I’m leaving this post as-is for now and going to try to rest. I have some other stuff to discuss, but that’ll probably be later this afternoon or tomorrow. 5 words: the return of the king. And no–I don’t mean the movie (which is fantastic, and now out on blu-ray, but I’ll wait until the extended edition is released before I buy the set).
