too much typing—since 2003


new acquisitions in the 2fs collection

Periodically, when I'm bored (or you are), I'll put up lists of recent music acquisitions, with occasional comments.

These are from a recent used-CD haul:
Isobel Campbell Amorino

Hot Hot Heat Make Up the Breakdown

Radiohead Remix Project: pretty "eh" - there are creative remixes, and then there's adding dance-club percussion to sampled guitar licks

Tripping Daisy I Am an Elastic Firecracker

Jim White No Such Place: peculiar, interesting packaging as well (the music fits those adjectives)

Mostly new...
Gentle Giant Acquiring the Taste: prog time!

TV on the Radio Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes: As I mentioned over at The Mystical Beast in comments, I absolutely don't get why anyone would compare this to Peter Gabriel in any way. Odd, that...

Kraftwerk live at Coachella, May 2004: downloaded from that mysterious interweb thingy!

Lilys The Lilys: Yes, it's titled that way...because Kurt Heasley's a perverse bastard (the band name lacks the article, the title has it). This is a British reissue of last year's Precollection, with a few tracks featuring added parts (to fine effect), a seemingly sharper and better-balanced mix, three new songs (all pretty fine), and new sequencing and artwork. On Rainbow Quartz - although their online store isn't selling it, alas.

Julian Cope live 1987 at the Ritz (broadcast on MTV, apparently) / World Shut Your Mouth EP: I got these two discs in trade for another CD - pretty good, considering they were digitized from cassette and LP respectively.

Guided by Voices Half Smiles of the Decomposed

Sixteen Horsepower Hoarse (live, from eMusic)

The Grifters Full Blown Possession - another used find

Clinic Winchester Cathedral

Gary Numan and Tubeway Army Replicas (eMusic)

So yeah, tell me how much I suck...
