Jónsi's album is the absolute nuts, was far and away my favourite record of 2010. I would certainly invest were I in your shoes, good sir.

Went on a bit of a Ninjatune binge and bought:

Stateless: 'Matilda' - Ah-May-Zing. Just, simply amazing. New favourite band.

Amon Tobin: 'Chaos Theory Remixed' - Almost better than the original soundtrack.

Daedelus: 'Bespoke' - As haunting and immense as ever for the man. Great stuff.

The new Baxter Dury (son of Ian) album is rather ace.


Bought a load of live bootleg CDs at the car boot on Sunday - The Smiths, White Stripes, Depeche Mods, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Clash, Radiohead. Was pretty astounded by the sound quality on most of them.

I remember the old days when you would go to Camden on a saturday and buy a bootleg cassette from a street vendor and a lot of the times hear the bloke recording the gig chatting away to his mate.

I got a couple of funny ones from the guy next to the canal AND at the CD place in Camden Lock market. Apparently both places have gone now? (I've not been to Camden in a couple of years).

They've all gone now - mainly because of the internet and the law. I used to pop up there and buy gig cassettes and videos and sometimes tapes of banned films (Clockwork Orange, Exorcist, Reservoir Dogs)

I sort of miss the analogue years. Collecting was so less lazy and so much more satisfying when you found stuff

Anyone have Jonsi's solo album, is it worth getting? The bits I've heard do sound rather nice.

I picked it up for a scandalously low £3 in HMV a few weeks ago. Really ought to give it a proper listen.

Beirut- The Rip Tide
Beirut- Gulag Orkestar
Miles Kane- Colour Of The Trap
Ade
The Go! Team - 'Rolling Blackouts'
Beverley Knight - 'Who I Am'
Kristian Leontiou (a.k.a. One eskimO) - 'Some Day Soon'
Noah And the Whale - 'The First Days of Spring'

Pretty certain Mr Hannon is now my favourite lyricist.

Fleet Foxes- Helplessness Blues

It is a gorgeous album. Love it love it love it.

If it didn't have that #@$!@#@$@ bit with the horns at the end, it would be the best folk album since Pet Sounds.

Do you mean on The Shrine/An Argument? That song is beautiful but yes, that ending annoys the shit out of me. However, they are currently my favourite band despite that!

I bought Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds today. It is a great 'fuck you, Liam' album.

And this for my sister for Christmas.

Sorry for the double post.

I added some more Lacuna Coil to my collection on Saturday - their new album, Dark Adrenaline. I can't stop listening to it at the moment.

Beastie Boys - The Sounds of Science
Underworld - Beaucoup Fish

Got that as a surprise for my mum when it came out. I put on my computer first of course. smile.gif
Good album.

Just pre-ordered Epica's Requiem for the Indifferent (which, for some reason, I only found out about yesterday despite liking them on Facebook - promotion fail) and Halestorm's The Strange Case Of..., both of which I am very excited for!
Ade
I done bought Air's new album (and specially-commissioned-soundtrack to the newly-restored colour version of Georges Méliès' 1910 silent film classic), Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip To The Moon).

Eeee, and it's a bit good. Nice retro analog-y goodness.

Good album.

"It certainly is, Ollie."

Nemesea - The Quiet Resistance

I've backed AFP's new album on Kick Starter if that counts.
sweetbutinsane
Pre-ordered We Are the Others by Delain as yesterday's post-exam treat, and I'll be pre-ordering Life in a Beautiful Light by Amy Macdonald after Tuesday's exam. Can't wait for both. smile.gif

I purchased Lambchop's new album, Mr. M. It's rather bloomin' lovely.
Silky
I downloaded the digital version of Theatre is Evil by Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra, while I wait for my 'proper' copy to be delivered.
I love it, but then, I'm a little obsessed with Mrs Gaiman.

I bought Passion Pit's new album Gossamer the other week, and it's rather a sweet little record. Having been such a huge fan of their debut album though, it took a few listens to really register properly, but it's definitely a worthy successor to Manners, with more than a smattering of wonderful little moments - more of the same, ostensibly. I'd certainly advise fans to check it out. happy.gif

Well I didn't buy it, but on I'm listening to ...Like Clockwork on Spotify.

There was no reason for me to go through with that whilst sat in the office, but I did it anyway.
