My yourmusic.com selection of the month.  I have it on right now and I'm digging it.  Ashcroft is less of a presence than on subsequent releases, and he looks like Encino Man in the liner notes. 

I haven't had cash to buy a lot of records lately, and I'm jonesing for a binge, probably in two weeks when I get my non-rent check payday.

Vinyl brought today:

Shellac - Ecellant Italian Geyhound
Comets On Fire - Blue Cathedral
Monkees - Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd
Wizzard - See My Baby Jive.

No idea why it's taken me so long to pick up the Shellac record.

I didn't buy any of the Fall records 'cause none of them were titles I recognized so I didn't know if they'd be good or not.
What a silly decision. Buy all of the ones you can afford, they'll be good to spectacular.

William Elliott Whitmore's entry to the Latitudes sessions.

Quick query: I only know this (well, the first half of this, to be precise - I'm in the middle of listening to it for the first time) and Song of the Blackbird, and I imagine that sooner or later (probably sooner rather than later), I'll need some more Whitmore in my life. One of the local record stores here has relatively cheap vinyl copies of both Hymns for the Hopeless and Ashes to Dust, so assuming that by the time that I get around to buying one, they still have both, which one do I go for? My hunch is to get the former, would that be a good decision?

QFT, although I don't really know of any bad Fall records.  The two latest ones were even pretty good, imo.  And that collaboration with the guys from Mouse on Mars seems pretty great, from what I've heard.

everything about the double-album version is superior (value, sound quality, liner notes) with the notable exception of the fucking cover art. Mad

Yes. At least, if you're going to get some more, Hymns for the Hopeless is stronger'n Ashes To Dust, I reckon.

I only have Ashes to Dust, which is a truly great album. One of my favourite Americana albums of the last couple of years actually. And on super heavy vinyl on Southern of course. But I guess you can't go wrong with either one, how's that for an advice? Wink


There was a great session on Dutch radio earlier this year, just him on banjo:

Picked up two great new Sub Rosa releases:

Luc Ferrari "Didascalies" cd+dvd


Winter Family "Winter Family" cd

Winter Family is a stunning collaboration between Israeli artist Ruth Rosenthal and French musician Xavier Klaine. The album is basically spoken word backed by beautiful piano, pipe organs, etc. Very much recommended.


And some other stuff:

Suishou No Fune "I Throw A Stone Into The Endless Depths" cassette


David Darling "Dark Wood" cd


Stuart Dempster "Underground overlays from the Cistern Chapel" cd


v/a "Tokyo Flashback 6" cd

Thanks, Grace and Bob! That's reassuring to know.

Listening to the Dwars session right now, it's sounding excellent indeed. I actually check the Dwars archives more or less periodically because they have great sessions on a regular basis, but that one had escaped me, so thanks for pointing it out!

So I just threw this on, and It's leaving me perplexed, because it actually sounds like a hardcore record from 1982 or something.  Maybe faster.  It's good, but definitely not what I was expecting.  The back says "recorded in 1982, produced by Ayn Rand", and that sounds about right.

Caribou - Andorra: Bought this solely on A/V Club's recommendation: "...the record feels like Caribou reaching back toward a primordial pool of sound." Listening to it now, it's pretty good so far.


Mekons - Natural: Haven't listened to this one yet.

Pretty awesome musical day over here - I received in the mail:


The New Pornographers - Challengers (Executive Edition)

It was a long time ago, but I didn't remember ordering the LP version of this one. Well, it has a code for high-quality MP3 in it, so it's all good, I guess.


Okkervil River - Black Sheep Boy Appendix

Filling the gaps in my OR collection.. (long overdue upgrade from MP3)


And, at my great surprise, I found at the Virgin store:

Vic Chesnutt - North Star Deserter (double LP)

I'm extremely excited about this one. I hesitated about ten minutes between the LP and CD version (they had both!). The CD was four euros cheaper, but the LP obviously looked much more awesome. I eventually resorted to calling a friend to have him make the decision for me. He chose the LP, so I left with that. I'll have to steal MP3 somewhere because, sadly, the vinyl doesn't include a code or a CD. Anyway, I'm listening now, and it's sounding terrific (and a lot to digest).

Is that Okkervil River record vinyl or CD? It's probably the best one to own on vinyl, with the orchestral fills between tracks and the overall dark, grainy sound.

CD! Yeah, vinyl would have been cool, but the CD was something like 4 euros, so... It's a really excellent little EP, "Last Love Song For Now" is probably one of their finest moments.
