I just fell upon Band of Horses, a former Seattle band now based in South Carolina. Their influences and styles are all over the place, but there's a folky/country/poppiness to them, which I'm really digging right now. You can stream their latest album, Cease to Begin, on virb.com.


Just gave a spin to "Cease to Begin" and really liked it.


I saw Band of Horses recently opening for The Killers. The Killers really were terrible live. They played three of their songs twice (in a reprise fashion, but that still counts as a repeat for me), plus they did two covers... all in a 90 minute set. Anyway, BoH was wonderful and anyone interested in emotive (not emo) rock music should give them a listen. If you don't know them, think Coldplay minus emasculation.

It was around $24.00 Cdn. Depends on what the exchange rate is with the British pound.

Rik Emmett - The Spirit of Christmas, A Collection of Traditional Carols

The thing I love about Christmas time is that I get to listen to some of my best recorded disks. This is one that is difficult to find. The ex-Triumph Canadian hard rocker front man Rik Emmett does a very nice job on this CD with rich and reveling vocals and, as usual for Rik, excellent acoustic guitar work.

Sam Ried’s arrangements are very unique and not you’re standard Dean Martin / Bing Crosby Christmas carols. It’s almost like a Christmas concept album. On this CD you will hear a mix of Celtic, Eastern and African influences (which I am not a big fan of). However it seems to work well and grows on you with this disc.

This is no ordinary Charismas CD, and it’s not for everyone. But, if you’re in the mood for something different, and still want Charismas music, give this a listen, if you can find it.

Highly recommended!!!

Paul

Being sick I had sometime to myself and loaded up Pat Benatar-Best Shots, Asia-Then & Now, April Wine - The Hits, The Cars - Greatest Hits and finally Bare Naked Ladies - All Their Greatest Hits(91-01). Pat has never sounded better than on the M80s and the live performances on the BNL are excellent. A wonderfull way to pass time while under the weather.

I just started going through the cd collection alphabetically since I bought the M80s\:\). I am rediscovering all over again, even better than the M22s were.

Pat is probably my favorite female artist. She has a great voice with an incredible range. I thought Wide Awake in Dreamland was her best album. I used to argue with my girlfriend (at the time) about who was better, Joan Jett, or Pat Benatar. I never really figured it was a contest.

I saw Pat in concert here in London with 10,000 other people last August (2007), just excellent, she still has what it takes to perform live! All I can say is Awsome!!!

She just has the right sound to make the M80's sing at their best.

Joan Jett vs. Pat Benatar, you're right , no contest. An opera trained singer vs. a street rat, I can see where the competition is.\:D

Edie Brickell last night and this morning, because why not?

If you didn't know, Dryden Mitchell, lead singer of Alien Ant Farm, is in love with Edie Brickell. I always thought it would be funny if they did a duet.

>>Pat is probably my favorite female artist. She has a great voice with an incredible range.

I saw Pat Benetar interviewed one day -- the funny thing is that she has a squeaky little voice when talking normally, so different from what you hear when she's singing.
