This week's CDs (6/03)

Here's what I'll be pumping at work this week:

Fountains of Wayne - s/t
Fountains of Wayne - Utopia Parkway
v/a - Poptopia! Vols. 1-3
Charming - Champagne and Magazines
Peter Gabriel - Up
The Roots - Phrenology
The Bad Plus - These are the Vistas
Candy Butchers - Play With Your Head
Candy Butchers - Falling Into Place
Ok Go - s/t
Big Star - #1 Record/Radio City
Buena Vista Social Club - s/t
O.A.R. - In Between Now & Then
Flogging Molly - Drunken Lullabys
v/a - Ocean's 11 soundtrack
Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Out
The Raspberries - Capitol Collectors Series
v/a - 24 Hour Party People soundtrack
Johnny Cash - At San Quentin
Pulp - This Is Hardcore

I really thought SAShepherd's question from last week was a great idea, so I'll repeat it:

QOTD -- Offer your comments on the previous poster's listening selection. Let's keep it clean, just something like,(for example) "I think the new Jayhawks is really watered down," "that's my favorite Yo La Tengo album," or "never heard of any of those artists."

I'm going to be taking in some live bootlegs that I got last semester and haven't been able to listen to yet.

Miles Davis and John Coltrane - 6/8/60 - Zurich, Switzerland
Frank Zappa - 10/27/73 - Austin, TX
Beck - 9/5/97 - New York, NY
Tortoise - 1/11/03 - Metro - Chicago, IL
Pavement - 4/21/97 - Missoula, MT
Sonic Youth - 10/14/87 - Chicago, IL
Flaming Lips - 8/8/02 - KCRW Studios - Santa Monica, CA
Tom Waits - 1/31/75 - Santa Monica, CA
The Talking Heads - 2/27/81 - Tokyo, Japan

As far as The Postal Service goes, I think that "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight" is the best song of the Gibbard/Tamborello collaboration, but "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan" outdoes the rest of that disc. That song is damn good. I don't have that Interpol EP, but I have heard "The Specialist" which is a good song, and I own the LP so I know the other 2 songs as well - "PDA" and "NYC", right? Anyway, I love all 3 songs. I've never followed Blur very closely - outside of a few great singles - but my friend bought Think Tank and says he likes it a whole hell of a lot. Maybe I'll borrow it one day, but it isn't a priority by any means.

-edit to add-
I forgot about the concerts I have on my computer as well: one Modest Mouse show, two Mogwai shows, one Jeff Tweedy show, and one Wilco show.

Fountains of Wayne - Utopia Parkway
Built to Spill - Keep It Like A Secret
Bruce Springsteen - The Rising
Aimee Mann - I'm With Stupid
R.E.M. - Reckoning

Let's see... haven't heard any of fallow's live bootlegs (natch), but I think the ones that would interest me most are (in order): Miles/Coltrane, the Talking Heads, and Beck. The Pavement is probably too late in their career for me, and the Sonic Youth is too early (pre-Daydream Nation, right?).

And, can't go wrong with Tweedy and/or Wilco...

Fountains of Wayne - S/T
Josh Joplin Group - The Future that Was
Garage a Trois - Emphasizer
Trey Anastasio - Plasma
Company Flow - Funcrusher Plus
The Gourds - Shinebox

Like most of what SAShepard's listening to, particularly the FoW and BtS records. I do think the Rising is pretty overrated but realize not many share that opinion.

How is this? I heard a couple songs of this that suggested I might like it -- it sounded like sort of a Beck/They Might Be Giants hybrid (tuneful, with sarcastic lyrics).

I love both Josh Joplin Group discs. Useful Music (their debut) is a bit more experimental...more effects, etc. The Future that Was is a bit more straightforward and a bit more pop. The lyrics are great on both albums.

I'd highly recommend their stuff...based upon what you listen to, you'd probably really like them. They're one of the few bands that I get excited about nowadays.

The Go-Betweens - "Spring Hill Fair"
Lilys - "Precollection"
Television - "Adventure"

The new Lilys album is spotty, but there are a few great tracks among the clunkers. Stevevt, what do you think?

Haven't picked it up yet. Definitely need to make another big order soon.

I have that Go-Betweens, too. I should give that a listen tomorrow.

Jane's Addiction - Strays (so good to hear new stuff from these guys)
Spiritualized - Ladies and Gentleman We Are Floating in Space
Blue Man Group - The Complex
Ash - Intergalactic Sonic 7s
Cave In - Antenna
Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People
Earlimart - Everyone Down Here
Nina Nastasia - Run To Ruin
The Decemberists - Castaways and Cutouts
The Wrens - Meadowlands

Haven't heard the older Go-Betweens album, but I have Bright Yellow, Bright Orange and find it to be very catchy.

The Blue Man Group CD is ok, nothing spectacular. There are some tracks that are interesting, but if you've seen any of their shows you won't be surprised.

I like the first Blue Man Group CD a lot. The presence of guest vocalists on the new one is completely uninteresting to me.

Add Metallica's St. Anger. Releasing on the 5th (instead of next week) due to it being leaked onto the net the other day.

I caved in on my promise, "No new music until I land a job!" when I found Enon's High Society and REM's Murmur at decent prices in a record store almost an hour away. Oooh, if only the record stores around here would carry that, I wouldn't have broken myself.

But they are both great, so I can't complain too much.
