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.
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.
