Music yesterday (11/18, that is)

    It would make more sense if I posted the albums for the day on the actual day. But that seems to be a little much for me at this point. I’ll add it to my list of goals.

    And maybe some actual comments about the albums – is that too much to ask for? I think I can handle that one.

    Here we go, for all you music geeks…

    Voyager One
    – Dissolver
    It’s weird how certain songs and albums can put you in a certain place and time, kind of like smells. This puts me on the LIRR heading to one of my jobs. Not where I wanted to be necessarily, but still.

    Golden Smog
    – Down By The Old Mainstream
    Wilco meets The Jayhawks meets Soul Asylum. I found this at the WFMU record fair a few weeks ago for maybe $1. Nice.

    Sun Kil Moon – April
    This one took me awhile to get into, like all his albums under whatever moniker. You just have to be in the mood for music this slow and depressing.

    [The] Caseworker – When I Was A Young King
    Kind of monotone and downtempo, but well done.

    Mum – Finally We Are No One
    Those wacky Icelandic types and their wacky machines.

    A-Ha – Hunting High And Low
    Yeah, that’s right, “Take On Me.” Big whoop, wanna fight about it? My first concert, or maybe my second. I’m so old I can’t even remember.

    Pet Shop Boys – Very
    To be gay and in the city… This is a great pick-me-up album late in the afternoon.

    Spiritualized – Songs In A&E
    Still stoned, still can’t sing and still putting out great albums.

    Pernice Brothers
    – Yours, Mine & Ours
    Pretty close to a perfect pop album, tinged with just enough melancholy.
