Young Magic - Melt: Really solid neo-psychedelia album, reminds me of Yeasayer's All Hour Cymbals, but I find myself preferring this to their work.



Jessie Ware - Devotion: I was expecting something like Lana Del Rey, but I enjoyed this a great deal more than Born to Die (which was ****e). Plenty of variation in beat over the album.



Crystal Castles - III: Thought this was great, and a step above either I or II. I particularly enjoyed the contrast of Insulin heading into Transgender. Happy with this.



Harouki Zombi - Objet Petit A: Short little EP from Kevin Barnes' wife Nina, and Rebecca Cash. Promising electropop. Needs some fine tuning, but this act has potential.



Thee Oh Sees - Putrifiers II: Feel a bit neutral about this, as half the album was great, but the remaining tracks were somewhat forgettable.



Guided By Voices - The Bears For Lunch: Hmmm, meh. Some good moments, but does mostly little for me. Guided By Voices try to do too much on every album without giving the really great stuff time to shine.



Grouper - Violet Replacement II: I love Liz Harris. She could murmur me to sleep every night, honestly.



DIIV - Oshin: Pretty run of the mill dream pop/shoegaze. Nothing new here.



Big Blood - Old Time Primitives: Least favourite Big Blood album so far, but still has some greatness to it.



A Place to Bury Strangers - Worship: Pretty good, but Exploding Head was better.

Peter Brotzmann Trio - For Adolphe Sax

Great free jazz, and I would expect nothing less from Brotzmann.


Sun Ra - Four Classic Albums (Includes Jazz By Sun Ra, Jazz Silhouette, The Futuristic Sounds of Sun Ra, Supersonic Jazz, as well as singles)

Awesome boxset that only cost ten bucks. It's mostly early Sun Ra, from fifties to sixties. The singles are cool too, because I haven't listened to any of his doowop music, and it's decent.


Tom Waits - Big Time

Got the movie and the soundtrack for this one, and what a bloody fantastic record this is. Almost all of the songs are right on par with the album versions or better. The movie's pretty awesome if you haven't seen that as well.


Kaoru Abe - Also Dream of the Day


Kaoru Abe - Winter 1972


Kaoru Abe - 1970 In March, Shinjiku

Three albums by Kaoru Abe (the man in my avatar) that I got in my stocking this year. Improvisational jazz, primarily on solo alto saxophone. He primarily explores textures in his work, and he's one of my favourites. I haven't listened to them yet, but I doubt that I'll be disappointed.


Keiji Haino - Tenshi No Gijinka

An interesting one from Keiji Haino, as I've only heard his guitar and a capella works. It's percussion and vocals, far more ambient than his more abrasive noise work. Haino manipulates each object that he uses on the album in a beautiful way, and it sounds like an odd form of singing bowls. I think I'll need to listen to this one a couple more times.

I received these from my mom this morning:

Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um
Deerhoof - Breakup Song
Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights
Madlib - Medicine Show #8: Advanced Jazz
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless
Ornette Coleman - The Complete Science Fiction Sessions

It feels good to finally have a physical music collection that doesn't consist of only four albums.

Either your mom has fantastic taste in music, or you were very specific when you told her what albums you wanted.

Last album I bought was Abattoir Blues/The Lyre of Orpheus by Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds... however, I think the last I listened to was PJ Harvey's To Bring You My Love (Now my favourite album from her).

I'm, about halfway through this album on Spotify right now. Why the hell didn't I listen to this sooner?! This could be my 2nd favorite hip hop release this year (right behind The Money Store).

Also, holy SHEEEIT is this song incredible!
