I haven’t done a #musicmonday in a while because I haven’t been listening to a whole lot of new stuff, but I thought I’d throw out a new one cuz’ I’ve got a couple things to speak about.

First up is the new album from The Books titled The Way Out which continues on their alleatoric journey, combining found sound samples and combining them with guitar and cello to make amazing music. I’ve listened to the album a few times so far and though they may not be striking brand new ground it’s still an amazing album.

After that I wanted to point out how amazing Fischerspooner’s first album #1 was. I hadn’t listened to it in a while, like 5 years, so I thought I’d put it on and sure enough it was quite the gem. I used to drive around my hometown of Roseville listening to it non-stop and I will always think of that, but honestly the album still stands up as a classic. If you haven’t heard it recently give it another listen for old times sake.

As usual feel free to suggest new music and links are extra appreciated.
