OK, I think I am done for a few months.

Re: Albums Bought (2019)

Holy crap, I guess so! Great albums, I'm especially a fan of Death's Leprosy and Kreator's Pleasure to Kill and Terrible Certainty. Speaking of Kreator/German thrash, I need to rebuy Sodom's Obsessed by Cruelty and Persecution Mania, I used to have first pressings of these but stupidly sold them years ago when I thought I was done with vinyl.

Re: Albums Bought (2019)

Went to a few stores yesterday, none had the Charly Bliss LP. They said they'll have it sometime this week. Wasn't a useless day though. I picked up:



70s era LA power pop. I know the song "Down on the Boulevard". Luckily, the rest of the album is just as good.



Yeah yeah, everyone has this title. It was just a super-clean analog vinyl copy. Sounds great


I stumbled upon the first volume of this a year ago on a blind buy and loved it.



Their first record was one of the best power pop records I've ever heard, so this was a no-brainer. Missed them two weeks ago when they played in Orange County, but they're coming back in September.

I've missed them the last two times they played here. First time I wasn't aware of their existence. I only realized I missed it because it was in an old weekly arts and entertainment rag I hadn't thrown out, and when doing some cleaning I thumbed through it and saw they played a little hole-in-the-wall joint. Then they were around again last year, opening up for Wolfmother. I actually could have gone, but I was going to see The Toasters already. But the venues were close enough geographically that I could have seen Charly Bliss' opening set then hustled over for the Toasters' gig. Would have been an expensive night though...

It's a similar story for me. I fell in love with "Guppy" a couple months after they last headlined in Atlanta. I would've gone to that show in a heartbeat if only I'd known that Charly Bliss existed. They've come by a couple times since, but it's been as an opener for Death Cab or as part of a festival package, and I didn't really feel like a 5 hour round trip for that.

The only similar thing I recall is when I bought the CD single for Smells Like Teen Spirit, just a little before it blew up and got popular, and the counter girl at Tower said that I should really buy the whole album, and I said that I already did, and that I'm only buying the single for the B-sides, and she gave me a high-five.

Re: Albums Bought (2019)

I'm hoping to find that Charly Bliss record this weekend. Sure I could get it off of Amazon but I try to get my records at brick-and-mortar record stores whenever possible.

But I've been listening to that new Ex Hex record, and holy shit. This band continues to put out amazing stuff. They took a step backwards on this release, in a good way. Their first record was a late 70s-era power pop record, you know, before skinny ties came in and the genre got lumped in with New Wave. It was no surprise that the first time I saw them they did two covers: a Real Kids song, and one by The Sweet.
This new record is also very 70s sounding, but more classic rock. Not quite the "arena rock" of Zeppelin or The Who, in fact I'm still trying to put my finger on just how to describe the sound or who to compare them to. But it's an amazing record. Highly recommended.

For a band that is marketed (at least in the US) to kids, it was really a change of pace seeing the video for Kuchibiru Motion, where the duo tries on lingerie in a sleazy motel room. The song kicks ass too.
I'm rather fond of The Brilliant Green, especially "The Angel Song."

Any fans of Love Psychedelico? When I lived in Japan back in 2002-2004, they were pretty popular...and you've gotta love a band that has the audacity to name their first album The Greatest Hits. The first four tracks on that album are stellar, but I'm particularly taken with "I Mean Love Me":

https://open.spotify.com/track/12IQpZOtuVDES4t2d3D4Py

And to keep this post on topic, I picked up a few CDs at a store closing today:

George Benson - Breezin'
Foreigner - Double Vision
Simon & Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Prince - 1999 (to replace the beat-up copy I bought 25 years ago)

Re: Albums Bought (2019)


Original SST release, and just $12. Had to do it.


Been listening to some 80s podcasts, and heard this band. Really dug it, and it was just $4.99.

And finally...



Where do I start with this? (and I haven't even listened to side 2 yet!)

For one thing, I'd been hearing about the record, that it had a more "synth pop" sound than Guppy. As a guitar lover, this worried me. But my worries were unfounded, as there's still plenty of guitar on this record (although I'm curious as to how they'll recreate the synth sound live), but more importantly I feel this sound suits Eva's voice much better. I like her voice, but it is shrill and I find that Guppy can be exhausting on the ears if you listen to the entire thing. While I've not listened to all of Young Enough yet, I feel that that won't be a problem.

"Blown to Bits" may be one of the best Side 1 Track 1s I've ever head. It starts out simple but builds to an amazing conclusion. Rather than make you want to just stop the record there (like a lot of the "best" Side 1 Track 1s do), you want to hear what's to come.
"Under You" might have overtaken "Westermarck" as my favorite Charly Bliss song, and it had BETTER be in their live set!

Can't wait to listen to side 2, but I'm just trying to take in side 1 completely first.


Young Enough and It's Real (by Ex Hex) will be fighting for my #1 record of 2019, and I doubt anything else will even come close. These two records ARE my top ten, I don't even need 8 more.

Re: Albums Bought (2019)

I had only bought a single album up to this week, Dream Theater's Distance Over Time. Then I decided to splurge and buy a few new ones:

Tesla - Shock
Rodrigo y Gabriela - Mettavolution
Queensryche - the Verdict
Sammy Hagar & the Circle - Space Between
Clutch -Book of Bad Decisions
Kenny Wayne Shepherd - The Traveler (pre-order for next week)

Went old school and bought CDs. Four came today, one's on the way and then KWS next week.
Now I just need to listen to them.

Re: Albums Bought (2019)

One of my favorite albums of all time just got re-issued as a (not so) limited edition vinyl, so of course I had to get it...

Darkthrone's blackened doom metal album. Lots of catchy riffs on this, "Duke of Gloat" and "Hardship of the Scots" are my favorite tracks so far.
