My dad sent me a copy of Hunters & Collectors- Human Frailty. Really like it! Very Smiths-esque.
Omniscia
Sandy Denny - A Boxful of Treasures
Within Temptation - The Heart of Everything
Vangelis - Odyssey: The Definitive Collection
Rebus
Had a Cinematic Orchestra splurge and bought the lot, everything.
Jessopjessopjessop
Snow Patrol: A Hundred Million Suns. Good.
Nonus Aequilibrium
Anathema - Hindsight

Not exactly new (except for one track), it's acoustic versions of some of their other songs, but very well done and it's nice to hear from Anathema again since their record label was closed down. Very much looking forward to their "real" new album.

The Swell Season
The Frames - The Cost

Yeah, I have zero willpower.

Fluke: Six Wheels On My Wagon. I like these guys.
QUOTE (Sostie @ Oct 24 2008, 10:41 AM) *
'Tis a good album. I adore Fluke. Absurd and Atom Bomb are tracks I still listen to on a regular basis.

Those are great tracks indeed - cheers for the reminder, guys.

I used to* love the music Chris Morris used to use for his daft Dance Chart rundowns (as voiced by Michael Alexander St. John) on his Radio 1 Music Show - turned out to be 'Slid' by Fluke - top choon and a half.

* still do, even.

That was on my Tape Loop mix until the very last minute. You're right, it is indeed a top chooooon.

They're all going cheap on play.com at the moment, and I'd just been paid. A dangerous combination indeed.

The Buffets - Saucy Jack

You can't go wrong with a female garage-punk trio, with one member dressed as a nurse and two in army officer jackets, can you?

Bloc Party - Intimacy

And a brilliant album it is!

I bought Gogol Bordello- Super Taranta! the other day, and I am completely and utterly obsessed with it. It's soooooo good.

Recently picked up:

Annie Lennox - 'Songs Of Mass Destruction'
Helicopter Girl - 'Metropolitan'


Not bad at all. The latter is certainly more mainstream than her previous two albums have been, but it's still retains her trademark quirkiness despite being altogether catchier than her other stuff. Alien For Breakfast is my current fave track.
Nonus Aequilibrium
Cradle of Filth - Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder
Omniscia
I wanted Chicago II for Christmas (I like their earlier jazz-rock sound), but I didn't get it. However, there's a local CD/video store that's going out of business, so everything's 50% off, and I was able to snag the 5-CD, 1-DVD, ultra-comprehensive Chicago box set for only $35. It's all the Chicago I ever wanted, and then some!

I have been playing We Are Rockstars quite a lot for the last couple of months.

Babylon AD Soundtrack - Alti Orvasson. Great soundtrack, shit film.

I got Nightwish - Highest Hopes off my brother for Christmas. happy.gif
Omniscia
Flight of the Conchords - Flight of the Conchords
The Mothers of Invention - We're Only In It for the Money
Oysterhead - The Grand Pecking Order
Nonus Aequilibrium
Didn't even intend to buy anything, but somehow ended up ordering 3 tonight:

Novembre - Classica
Ihsahn - angL
Satyricon - The Age of Nero
Sir_Robin_the_brave
Taking advantage of the 20% reduction on already cheap cds in Zavvi I got:

Ian Brown - Golden Greats
Goldfrapp - Black Cherry
Maximo Park - Our Earthly Pleasures
Gnarls Barkley - The Odd Couple
Portishead - Third
Renaissance - The Classics Collection

I've got to stay away from there until it closes or I'm going to end up spending a lot of money.

A semi-recent purchase of mine was Beth Rowley's Little Dreamer, which I have been subjecting to repeat plays this past couple of weeks. She's got a damn nice voice, and I'm liking the gospel influences. She really deserves all the attention that has instead gone to the likes of Duffy and Adele over this past year. For shame.

Elbow- The Seldom Seen Kid

I don't own any of their music, so when I saw this for 5 in HMV I thought it'd be a good place to start!
maian
Bruce Springsteen - The Rising
Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska
Bruce Springsteen - Born In The U.S.A.
Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run
Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
Seasick Steve - Dog House Music
The Last Shadow Puppets - Age of the Understatement

Hmv sale has been good to me.

Got the White Lies CD. Don't believe the hype.

I came over all peculiar on Saturday and ordered the best of Girls Aloud.

Flyleaf - Flyleaf. I hope it is delivered soon because I need something to cheer me up.

New Young Pony Club - Fantastic Playroom

Lots of fun. I'm liking this.

Today, I bought:

Alphabeat - This is Alphabeat
Kaiser Chiefs - Yours Truly, Angry Mob
Neil Diamond - Best of
The Last Shadow Puppets - The Age of the Understatement

Looking forward to listening to those tonight.

I was just about to type "hang on a minute, no I didn't." Your avatar is confusing me greatly, sir.



I did splash out on some new music today, though:

The Aliens - 'Luna'
Ladyhawke - 'Ladyhawke'
Animal Collective - 'Merriweather Post Pavilion'
Santogold - 'Santogold'
Elbow - 'The Seldom Seen Kid'*

* 'One Day Like This' playing in-store influenced the latter purchase, and I'm glad. In fact, I've played all five albums since I got home - they are all rather splendid.

Indeed. It's a shocking rip-off of an entire decade, not to mention the modern bands (Interpol, Franz Ferdinand, Editors, Glasvegas) who have already walked the worn path of homage very recently.

I may love Chromeo, Lindstrom and the like, who wear their 80s influences very obviously on their sleeves, but the White Lies CD stops me being hypocritical by being so totally derivative.

QUOTE (Ade @ Jan 25 2009, 07:14 PM) *
Ladyhawke - 'Ladyhawke'

Thanks for the text, I'll investigate.
Sostie
Despite being another CD that harks back to the 80s, I really do like the Ladyhawke CD

So I bought this today... first impressions are that it all blends into one, and that the second half of the album is better than the first but that it's catchy, enjoyable and well produced. This could be a headphone special, I think.

Other things I've boughtten recently:

The Art of Chill 2 (mixed by Jon Hopkins)
The Art of Chill 5 (mixed by Bent)
David Holmes - The Holy Pictures
Coldplay - Prospeckt's March
Biosphere - Patashnik
Biosphere - Microgravity
Pink Floyd - A Saucerful of Secrets
Elbow - The Seldom Seen Kid

ALL GOOD!

Yeah, it's good. It loses me a little bit in the second half (with the exception of One Day Like This), but loving the rest.

My favourite song is 'The Fix'. If you're in the UK and have Freeview, hit the red button for an Elbow concert.

I bought Mercury Rev's most recent album today, can't remember the title...
