What are they? I've got credits burning a hole in my pocket and I don't know what to spend them on.
In no order my emusic faves of the last couple of months have been:
Dillinger Escape - Option Paralysis (New shouty genius)
Aidan Baker - Lifeforms/Liminoid (expansive ambient goodness)
Speck Mountain - Some Sweet Relief (like early low with beautiful female vocals throughout)
Yo La Tengo - Popular Songs (it's the new YLT album)
Amesours - Amesours (sp?)- (French hardcore/rock/ dual vocaled goodness)
Felix - You are the one I pick (female vocal quirky rock/ambient)
Vic Chesnutt - At the Cut (amazing last album from sorely missed songwriter with most of Silver MT Zion as backup band)
Ben Frost - By the Throat (instrumental computer/live music mash up that falls into no category save 'Awesome').
It has a rather familiar hyperbolic style..... :D
I got the most recent two Black To Comm albums off emusic recently, they're both tremendous. Also enjoying singles/eps from egyptrixx, 10-20, falty dl...
tbh I'm in a mood with emusic today, I've purchsed the ikonica album and the downloader won't work, it keeps saying downloading error.
- it seems to have downloaded OK for me.
I just blew my remaining credits on Yousef, who I saw last night.
I'm listening now and it feels very exciting.
also, typo - ikonika not ikonica. sorry.
this month I also picked up the excellent new Pantha du Prince album, new Besnard Lakes (get the last one if you don't have it already), the new Cobblestone Jazz (deep house, now with all jazz removed but still very good), new Field Music and the new Wooden Shjips (track one sadly unavailable on eMusic).
I can thoroughly recommend all of them and the Black to Comm album Alphabet 1968 and Rifts by Oneohtrix Point Never, my favourite eMusic aquisitions of last year, if you don't have them already.
