Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but the new Vampire Weekend Album Modern Vampires in the city is very good. Excellent Vocals live and present sound. etc. Vampire Weekend Rules.

The New Daft punk Album Random Access Memories was intentionally made with the highest production and recording technology available to breath life back into "real" music for the ipod generation. Check it out.

Tame impala is a great band from australia that plays 60s/70s style psychedelic rock. Think beatles harmonies meets fat Hendrix guitar licks. Lots of reverb, space and artful distortion use.

Their newest release Lonerism is a must buy imo.

They have a great single called "elephant" that is making the rounds. Check it out! cool

For the serious listener this disc is one I would consider reference quality to show off three dimensional sound from 2 speakers. The first track, gotta be above it, has sounds bouncing well outside of the width of the speakers in my setup. Fantastic mixing and production from a playback perspective. An exciting listen. smile

Thanks for the recommendation, Hellcommute. I've had Tame Impala in my Amazon wish list for some time. I'll give 'em a bump to the cart.

One of the highlights of the BBC Proms which concluded on Saturday was a performance of Janacek's Sinfonietta, opening with stirring brass fanfares and then alternating with fierce and beautiful passages. The most exciting recording of the Sinfonietta, of the many I've heard, is the Ancerl Gold edition with the superb Czech Philharmonic. This also includes two rather exotic rarely heard pieces by Martinu, which makes this disc fascinating listening in its entirety. Available from several Amazon sellers at absurdly low prices for music of this quality, from about $5 up.

John, this should interest you. I just took delivery of an Archiv recording of Handel's masses transcribed by Mozart. Unfortunately, this morning, I have only had the time to listen to side on of the Messiah. I'll post a longer review when I have a chance to listen some more. Initial impressions are amazement. Having had it played in my home since I was too young to even remember, the Messiah is part of my life blood. Hearing it sung in German is incredible!

FYI

Grigorian, in Toronto, is having a sale. Of social note is the sale of Decca recordings.

"No, don't buy that one, buy this one!" -- BobKay

Though Tame Impala are the current Euro Festival (and musical press) darlings this summer, real 60's psychedelia makes their writing and playing seem rather thin. I was excited to get it. I had it for a couple of weeks, then sold it back.

A better band in that vein (and this is really odd) is Pond, who are 2/5's of Tame Impala. Their new CD, Hobo Rocket is, IMO, a better record and more fun, though clocking in at only about 35 minutes.

Would I lie to you about Rock and Roll? Huh? Ever?!?

Hellcommute, welcome. Great to have contributing thoughts.
I may have differing opinions, but you had me in your corner after the second "l" in "hell."

PM me and lemme know whatcha think. I'm really interested.

Hell, some of the regulars here are now likely horrified that you took my suggestion so readily. Just be more cautious if my suggestion has anything whatsoever to do with any, even teeny, aspect of your real life.

May I refer to you simply as "Hell?" It puts an instant "bad" word in any text to/about you. Saves me a little time.

n.b. I publicly swore off emoticons a long time go, so just assume I'm kidding unless it's REALLY offensive, OK?
