"Junip" - Junip

"The World From The Side Of The Moon" [Deluxe Edition] - Phillip Phillips
"monomania" - Deerhunter
"Perils From The Sea" - Mark Kozelek & Jimmy Lavalle
"Django Django" - Django Django
how you liking monomania? just saw it put on the shelves and was wondering
A couple of genuine masterpieces in their respective genres (though what their respective genres might be is open to debate) :
Mickey Newbury - An American Trilogy (ie Looks Like Rain, 'Frisco Mabel Joy, Heaven Help the Child and assorted demos and outtakes), Saint Cecila Knows, 4 CDs, 2011, recorded 1969-1973.
Three incredible feats of old-school songwriting (a Nashville cousin to Brel perhaps), occasionally awash in country sitar twang and an orchestra that sounds just like an analog synth. Amazingly thoughtful and delicate.
Jim O'Rourke - long night, Streamline, 2 CDs, 2011, recorded 1990
A single continuous piece of music, 2h40 minutes long. Some would call it "drone". Me, I call it an exciting dialectic of monophony and polyphony and one of O'Rourke's finest early pieces. Amazingly thoughtful and delicate. Who'd have thought ?
Yeah, I really liked Junip's first album "Fields." I also recently purchased Gonzales' "Veneer" really like that as well...
I'm done buying headphones and gear and such, so I've been purchasing quite a bit of music lately. Went a bit nuts over the last couple weeks....
Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction [picture disc]
Marillion - Incommunicado [picture disc]
Rage Against The Machine - XX [picture disc]
Santigold - Santigold
The Fall - The Wonderful Frightening World Of
Os Mutantes - Mutantes
Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True [MoFi]
Elvis Costello - The Delivery Man
Keith Jarrett - The Koln Concert
Chet Baker - Sings

......and the KAB EV-1 record cleaner; makes a huge difference reducing static and surface noise :)
The latest for me are:
Tycho- Dive (don't really like it, but someone recommended it to me)
David Gilmour- On an Island
Nine Inch Nails- Pretty Hate Machine Remastered (been listening to this one a lot lately)
Gary Numan- The Pleasure Principle (also good)
Rob Dougan- Furious Angels (awesome)
