eMUSIC ROUND NINETEEN
I'm anticipating downloading two albums on Tuesday to start off my next round of 65, so it's time to talk about the latest round. I spent part of this past download period waiting for the new New Pornographers to show up but I was saved by my brother; he bought Challengers on vinyl and it came with a download coupon which he gave to me since he doesn't do mp3s. I am still waiting for Jason Isbell's solo album and the newest Buffalo Tom to make their appearance at the site, two months after they came out. Soon, I hope.
Okkervil River/The Stage Names - This is a good album and a worthy follow-up to Black Sheep Boy. eMusic also had a bonus track attached to the record. I've still only listened a couple of times and am looking forward to learning the songs inside and out.
Imperial Teen/The Hair the TV the Baby and the Band - Solid pop music from a band that's been on the shelf for a few years. Again, I've only listened a couple times so far.
Stars/In Our Bedroom After the War - The follow-up to Set Yourself On Fire, which I grew to love when it came out a few years ago. I'm still trying to grow into this one but there are some really good songs on here.
Pela/Anytown Graffiti - I liked this the first time I heard it...liked it more the second time...and now I'm close to wanting to listen to it constantly for a week or two. It's a rock record with a lot to like.
Aesop Rock/None Shall Pass - This is the very first hip-hop/rap album I've ever bought. Kinda sad that it took me until the age of 36 to do it. I'm still trying feeling my way through it but there are some songs that I've taken an immediate liking to.
Voxtrot/Raised By Wolves - And here's the third of the Voxtrot EPs. Guess the full-length will be next.
