Got my copies of The Joy Formidable's A Balloon called moaning and The Big Roar, which I'm kind of excited about. I also picked up Best Coast's album, Crazy For You, so here's hoping I like it. Bj÷rk's Biophilia came out today, so I have that to listen to, too. I barely started it, and it was already boring me. Ha ha. Bj÷rk has done some great stuff, but I think she's drifted too far into eccentricity. I should listen to the whole thing before I judge.

I've been meaning to get that Best Coast album for a long time now.

*sigh*

I need a job that makes more money so I can afford everything I've been meaning to get. The list just keeps getting longer! Or I can adjust my expectations. . .but what's the fun in that?

I admire his unwillingness to go away.

It's so easy to forget how many Top 10 hits some of these 60's/70's bands had. Each new track is, "Oh, yeah, forgot about that one." It's like the BeeGees. Their "Greatest Hits" 2-CD has almost 30 tracks. Neither my run-to guys, but still fun occassionally --- amazing accomplishments.


Why don't you check out Bobby Goldsboro while you're at it?

Still enjoying several of my recent acquisitions. The Joy Formidable, Dum Dum Girls, Duchess Says, Grand Ole Party, Best Coast, Lana del Rey. I'm having trouble getting into Feist's new album and Arcade Fire's last album, but I'm not ready to write them off yet. I did listen to Bj÷rk's new one again, but I'm not remembering which tracks I liked specifically. A fair amount of the audio was actually pretty enjoyable, so I'll have to give it more time, too.

'Cause he sucked and the BeeGees and The Four Seasons didn't.

But, "Honey I miss you, and I'm doin' fine."

Happy now?

You know, Rob, I think the prototype for "Chuckie" was based on a photo of Bobby Goldsboro.

All that less-than-thoughtful 60's stuff is so entangled with time place for me. It's fun to revisit and recall the horrors of the day. Plus, I know all the lyrics.

Hi,
I'll be listening once again at the best multi-channel recording ever produced IMHO. Recorded as if you were on the stage amongst the musicians. Absolutely stellar caliber especially on an Axiom system !

AIX Records BD HD Sampler IV
