Today's CDs (1/13)

Steve Earle - Jerusalem
Norah Jones - Come Away With Me
Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker
Alison Krauss and Union Station - So Long So Wrong
Kim Richey - Bitter Sweet

Question of the Day: What were your favorite pre-2002 discoveries in 2002? (It often takes me 6-12 months to get an album, so my best of 2002 list will probably look a lot different in July than it does now.)

Here were some of my favorites:
Built To Spill: Keep It Like a Secret
Marah: Kids in Philly
Gillian Welch: Time (The Revelator)
Strokes: Is This It

Public Image Ltd. -- Second Edition
Deerhoof -- Reveille
Yummy Fur -- SExy World
2 Many DJs -- As Heard on Radio Soulwas Pt. 2
Radio 4 -- Gotham!

The main person I got into last year, having not heard before, was Arthur Alexander, an early 60s R&B singer. He's the only person to be covered on record by Dylan (forget which song), the Beatles ("Anna Go to Him") and the Stones ("You Better Move On"). A startling, mournful voice and a knack for writing really sad songs. There's a collection of his singles out on CD that I got, and it's just amazing.

Echo and the Bunnymen - "Heaven Up Here"
Fugazi - "In on the Kill Taker"
Interpol - "Turn on the Bright Lights"
Smashing Pumpkins - "Siamese Dream"

QOTD: Belle and Sebastian - "If Your Feeling Sinister" and Echo and the Bunnymen - "Heaven Up Here" have both found themselves in my cd player rather consistently ever since I got them.

Califone - "Roomsound"
Out Hud - "S.T.R.E.E.T D.A.D"
Brian Eno - "Before and After Science"
Fugazi - "The Argument"

Q of the D:
Brian Eno - "Another Green World" and
Uncle Tupelo - "Anodyne" (never bothered to check it out, even though I'm a big Wilco fan)

I saw Calla and Interpol last night. It was a good time, but some of Calla's quieter songs were drowned out by all of the people talking during their set. I'll have to pick up Calla's "Televise" when it comes out.

Glad to hear that you saw Calla. Where was the show? They are much more of a rock band now than they used to be. Televise reflects that (and is actually my least favorite of their three albums)... I would recommend getting Scavengers.

It was at the Metro in Chicago. They are playing at a smaller venue tonight (my favorite club - The Empty Bottle), but I can't make it to that show.

I just bought two more cds later this afternoon:

Tortoise - TNT
Godspeed You! Black Emperor - Yanqui UXO

Mike 1978, what did you think of Interpol's performance? I thought the chemistry on stage was great but people seem to either love it or say, "they play their songs just like on the cd."
