We Are Not Other People. I think it's released on Monday. It's very good, an extremely entertaining listen.
Ducky moved two or three weeks ago but was using the net at his old place til he had to give his keys back (yesterday I think).
its pretty much ace.
but i want to get the new broken social scene album as well and i can't find one place doing both at prices i'm willing to pay. so consequently i have nothing. NOTHING.
theres a new BSS album??? WHY WAS I NOT INFORMED?
you mean the Brendan Canning one? yeah thats probably what you mean.
it's still a good album. Man id love them to get together and make a proper album though :(.
My week has been totally dominated by Metronomy's Nights Out, which is the dance album of the year as far as I'm concerned. My God the world is going wonky these days; and there are some wonky gems on this - Holiday, Nights Out, and The End of You To (I did not know Metronomy so also got Pip Paine). I've never seen them live. Good review in the Independent (5/5) and on TLOBF (89%)
I also got the following, but too early to give an opinion
El Guincho - Alegranza! (import) - I've been searching for this ever since Primavera where he made the area in front of the Vice stage come alive under the stars - he uses samples of afrobeat and tropicalia but adds a special kind of magic - includes Fata Morgana (see Jan 08 Drownloads)
Ra Ra Riot - The Rhumb Line - this took a long time coming - they are instrumental band once described as a poor man's Arcade Fire, the album includes the lovely singles Dying is Fine, St Peter's Day Festival and Each Year (at our graves) - beautiful music born out of tragedy - I'm going to be enjoying this over the coming few weeks
I took a day out this week just to listen to all the works of Gustav Mahler which i have on CD - prompted by the Christianne Stolijn album issued as a BBC Music Magazine freebie - this is home base for me
