yes its that time of the month again.... once again i have trawled through my recent music mags, found album reviews that sounded interesting, and then checked them out on emusic.com
- "learning to bend" by ben sollee - vocal and cello, really! folk and retro jazzy R&B
- "beat pyramid" by these new puritans - angular rock, think "The Fall"
- "the monitor" by titus andronicus - combination of punk, americana and roots rock
- "quarantine the past: the best of pavement" - yes, THAT pavement, where alt-rock really started...
- "OMG!" by rusko - inventive, genre-crossing electronic house
- "so runs the world away" by josh ritter - more fab folk from the lapsed lutheran
- los angeles" by flying lotus - experimental hip hop
- feast of the hunter's moon" by black prairie - 'like a bluegrass version of the decemberists'. video clip and 2 free songs here
- "streets of new york" by willie nile - supposedly one of the great americana albums of 2006 (emusic) - a folk-rock tribute to the 'big apple'. guests include jakob dylan
