Another Friday, another trip to Graywhale. The things I learn from going there …
For example, tomorrow is Record Store Day. At Gray Whale, all used CDs are buy 2, get one free. WHAT?! WHAT!? Yah. My morning was going to be about getting ready for game 2 of the Sabres/Bruins series (hockey, for all you who are not “in the know”). That has changed. Since I own a Killer Whale card–a must for anyone within 50 miles of a Graywhale store–I get in at 9. An hour or so of perusing, cavorting, etc, then home for the game. That’s the order of the day.
So here’s the new list of what I picked up today.
- The Juilana Theory – Love
- The Juliana Theory – Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat
- Evangelista – Hello, Voyager
- DulceSky – Media Luna EP
- Blue Bird
- Coughs – Secret Passage
- Colour Revolt
- From Bubblegum to Sky – Nothing Sadder than Lonely Queen
- Lois – Bet the Sky
- Lois – Butterfly Kiss
- Scout Niblett – I am
- Bettie Serveert – Log 22
- Cat on Form – Structure and Fear
- Cantinero – Championship Boxing
- Breaking Pangea – Cannon to a Whisper
- !!! (Chk Chk Chk) – Me and Guiliani down by the School Yard
I have other stuff by some of these bands, but not many. I already have Bettie Serveert’s “Log 22,” but only in mp3s. I’m familiar with Scout Niblett’s work, so I’m glad to have found that CD. I’ve heard a few snippets of some Juliana Theory material and I’m familiar with their history, but I don’t have any of their stuff. Well, okay … NOW I do, but I didn’t. That’s my point.
The Breaking Pangea CD interests me on name alone. I’m listening to the Juliana Theory’s Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat at the moment. It’s a shame these guys broke up after making this CD.
Dulcesky is a local band. In fact, they’re playing tonight at the Woodshed in downtown Salt Lake. Wish I had known that earlier today.
Anyway, more tomorrow. Probably.
