I feel like I’ve gotten a good crop of music lately, there are definitely some good things to check out.
Like I said last week, the new Rufus Wainwright album is an amazing step forward for him, just a piano and his voice. After that was the new Dr. Dog album Shame, Shame, which I wrote a bit about in the previous post. If you like their previous albums you’re going to love this new one. Yesterday ended up being a rainy, crappy day, so I busted out The Clientele who are always perfect for that kind of weather. Following them up was Bonobo who’s new album Black Sands continue to get me in the working mood.
Starting out the next chunk was Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and his/their new album Before Today, and it’s a totally bizarre but awesome album that’s totally starting to grow on me. Think drugs and rock music. The last album I kinda want to talk about is this Wu Tang vs. The Beatles album. I didn’t really think it was all that great on first listen but after another solid listening to it’s certainly proving to be quite a masterpiece. Don’t expect to find the album in any traditional ways though, you gotta’ know how to search the Googlez.
