    What albums do I need to add to my collection?

    C'mon, you know you've got suggestions.

    Gawd, I'm bored. Just waiting for my friends to get off work.

    The new White Stripes on vinyl is fantastic sonically and musically.

    Also, I've been wanting that Sundazed reissue of Link Wray's Jack the Ripper album, so you could just but that and then send it to me.

    I suggest you try anything from...

    ...Spoon or the Decemberists.

    You can thank me later.

    Thanks for posting on Nana. I'm missing that one she did in 1990, Oh Happy Day. Hope I can still get it.

    Estradasphere- Palace of Mirrors

    All instrumental Klezmer metal with touches of spaghetti western and 60s and 70s lounge from ex-members of Mr. Bungle.

    Album of the year for me so far, but I'm weird that way.

    Sounds interesting and worthy of investigation. Thanks!

    Do you have any Gordian Knot or Ozric Tentacles? Some one hear mentioned Ozric in a post way back, I checked them out and they are one of the coolest things I've found in a long time. Try Spirals in Hyperspace.

    I also really got into the Norwegian Metal with my favs being Tristania and Nightwish

    I really enjoyed the discovery of Blackmore Night, if you aren't already into them, you might try their DVD, Castles and Dreams, it's very good. Candace is easy on the eyes and it's entertaining to watch Ritchie at work on the stringed instruments.

    If you also enjoy an acoustic type sound occasionally Patty Griffin or Mindy Smith

    I recently picked up an album by Gigi who is an Ethiopian artist, I guess they label this as World music. I thought it was pretty good. Interesting rythyms and instruments, some of the songs include some horns. The vocal style may be hard to get used to.

    I bought my first mp3 player and have been building my library. It's fun to go back to those old albums you haven't had out in awhile like Gary Moore or Driving & Crying or WASP. I ended up with a pretty good representation of 80's hard rock from back in the day.

    I have (a burned copy) of Strangeitude lying around here somewhere.

    For some reason I've been on an alt-country trip lately athough I did break out Slayer's South Of Heaven yesterday once the alcohol started kicking in. Funny how that works

    Let us know what you do get.


    And, the Bob Log III is fun. I keep meaning to pick up a copy of Log Bomb. See him live if you get the chance and when you go, have a glass of Boob Scotch.

    Have you heard Kathleen Edwards or Ray LaMontagne? You might enjoy either or both of them.

    Luke Doucet is someone that you should definately check out as well.

    My obsession lately has been with Morphine. Especially that great second disc from about 1993 on Rykodisc. Pretty big seller at the time I think, at least for an indie. You just don't hear this kind of sax-fueled, bluesy rock very often. Very unique, without the normal sound of guitars crunching all over the place. And Sandman's great voice. Really makes it almost sound like a jazz trio when it gets down and skronky, but definitely rocks. From AMG ...


    Review by Greg Prato

    With their cult following growing, Morphine expanded their audience even further with their exceptional 1994 sophomore effort, Cure for Pain. Whereas their debut, Good, was intriguing yet not entirely consistent, Cure for Pain more than delivered. The songwriting was stronger and more succinct this time around, while new drummer Billy Conway made his recording debut with the trio (replacing Jerome Deupree). Like the debut, most of the material shifts between depressed and upbeat, with a few cacophonic rockers thrown in between. Such selections as "Buena," "I'm Free Now," "All Wrong," "Candy," "Thursday," "In Spite of Me" (one of the few tracks to contain six-string guitar), "Let's Take a Trip Together," "Sheila," and the title track are all certifiable Morphine classics. And again, Mark Sandman's two-string slide bass and Dana Colley's sax work help create impressive atmospherics throughout the album. Cure for Pain was unquestionably one of the best and most cutting-edge rock releases of the '90s.


    Picked up a bunch of odds and ends lately that I've wanted for awhile ...

    Richard Buckner: Meadow (love this guy, all the way back to the Bloomed debut. Nice band on this one, and always great songs and voice, no radical departure, just classy, folksy, country music)

    Richmond Fontaine: Thirteen cities (ditto above, had a Swish Daddy demo for awhile now, but got the real deal from his deepdiscount hangout, those dusty story-based songs of singer Willy Vlautin always take me away. Recorded in Arizona with members of Calexico, the americana.uk site gave it a way over the top 10/10 ... "We live in a world of hyperbole and exaggeration which is a pity because when this album is called a masterpiece, such words lose some of their effect. But a masterpiece it is – daring, adventurous, literate, and consummate.")

    Electrelane: No Shouts No Calls (love these Brighton ladies, especially with Steve Albini at the recording console, but on this one they stayed in Europe and Albini stayed in Chicago, but no complaints here. Some of the VU and Krautrock and Feelies influence falls away for some great pop sounds, and again, no complaints. Great record, by one of the best rock bands making music right now.)

    The National: Boxer (what can you say when a band hits all the right spots, and does it with such class and flair? Immediately understated, but highly rewarding in the end. Keeps alive what I've always loved about the Joy Division meets Leonard Cohen vibe I rediscovered in those first couple Tindersticks records, and Sixteen Horsepower, and other favorites.)

    Andrew Bird: Armchair Apocrypha (had a freebie for quite awhile now, from an Autumn place, and easily became one of my favorites of the year, so had to get the real one - Andrew Bird is one of the most special songwriters I know of today, and this is one of his best)

    Steve Reich: Music for 18 Musicians (only heard, but never had a copy, until now. Classic stuff. This is the longer Nonsuch reissue from the late 90s. Easy 10 out of 10 on any of today's rating scales. Mind shifting, yet accessible avant garde post rock music - but from the 70s. Not like Pink Floyd psychedelia - think more like Tortoise, and Rachel's, very repetitive, but that's the beauty, kind of like some of the modern day electronica trance composers in that regard, but with all "real" sounds)

    Fridge: Happiness (right up there with that great Manitoba "Up In Flames", and Hood "Cold House", and Notwist "Neon Golden", but this post rock is instrumental like Mogwai, although not like Mogwai.)

    Rex: C (all things revolving around Red Red Meat and Califone and that whole Chicago family of bands will ultimately be mine. Call it a disease, but it makes me happy )

    Morphine: Cure for Pain (all things revolving around Sixteen Horsepower and Woven Hand and that whole family of Denver areas bands will ultimately be mine. Call it a disease, but it makes me happy )

    Cat Power: The Greatest (skipped at the time last year, cause Moon Pix will always be my favorite, and I do kind of miss the wreckage, but I do still love Chan, and that voice works great in this setting too, even if not like it does on You Are Free or Moon Pix)

    Palace: Viva Last Blues (Will Oldham is a long time favorite, picked up this on vinyl way back in the mid 90s, and it's still probably my favorite, another great Albini recording, but the turntable has been in mothballs for awhile due to moves, and I really needed to hear it again, and only $5.99 for the CD of a truly understated classic of the 90s - no brain needed for this buy, gawd, I might be able to listen to Will's creaky old ramblings all day long)

    World Psychedelic Classics #3 on David Byrne's Luaka Pop label

    If you're feeling very metal, or at least kinda sullen and etchy metal you might want to try planesmistakenforstars.

    I picked up a nice copy of von Karajan/BPO's Mozart'sSymphonies #38 & #39 on Deutsche Grammophon if your so inclined.
