I have not been doing a good job of keeping track on my recent purchases here. Which is a shame, because I picked up some really cool stuff. Unfortunately, it's all already been assimilated into my collection as a whole, and I'm having difficulty remembering exactly what I've bought since my last post. Here's what I've bought solely in the past two weeks though:
Emancipator: Soon It Will Be Cold Enough
Geinoh Yamashirogumi: Rinne Kokyogaku
The Haxan Cloak: Excavation
Kashiwa Daisuke: Program Music 1
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu: Nanda Collection
Magma: Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh
Mount Eerie: Clear Moon
Mount Eerie: Ocean Roar
NON: God & Beast
Nujabes: Hydeout Productions 2nd Collection
Prurient: Pleasure Ground
Ramleh: Hole in the Heart
Toe: The Book About My Idle Plot on a Vague Anxiety
World's End Girlfriend: The Lie Lay Land
Various Artists: Katamari Fortissimo Damacy
Just made it back home from a trip to Japan yesterday. There I splurged a lot of cash at two different Tower Records stores (couldn't go to the big one in Shibuya sadly). This is what I bought:
Center: Greeeen - Ima Made no A Men, B Men Dest!?
Top: Nico Touches The Walls - Passenger
Upper Right: Sekai no Owari - Entertainment
Lower Right: Aqua Timez - because you are you
Bottom: livetune - Take Your Way
Lower Left: Aqua Timez - The BEST of Aqua Timez
Upper Left: Supercell - My Dearest
I acquired a grand total of 102 new songs out of Japan! Already listened to Sekai no Owari's Entertainment and loved it! Can't wait to listen to the rest in the coming days!
The Necks - Silverwater, CD, Rer Megacorp, 2009
Francesco da Milano / Hopkinson Smith - "il divino", CD, Naïve, 2008
François Couperin / Jordi Savall - Pièces de violes avec la basse chifrée, CD, Astrée Auvidis, 1976
Tony Conrad - Early Minimalism, 4 CDs, Table of the Elements, 1997
Luc Ferrari - Presque rien, Recollection GRM / Editions Mego, 2 LPs, 2012
Very happy as I'd been searching for a couple of these (the Couperin and Conrad records) for a long time now. Finding the Conrad boxset seems especially unlikely given Table of the Elements, one of the greatest independant labels of these times, closed shop a few years back
I've been picking up a bunch of stuff lately - a few of the latest:
Dave Matthews Band - Live At Red Rocks 8.15.95
Jeff Beck - Blow By Blow
Donald Fagen - The Nightfly
Moby - 18
The Beatles - Rubber Soul (the last person on the planet to not already own this?)
Big Head Todd & The Monsters - Beautiful World
The English Concert / Trevor Pinnock - The Complete Mozart Symphonies
The LP is outstanding. Didn't compare it directly to the CD, but from memory I'd say it trumps the CD without question.
I haven't heard the CD version, but the MoFi LP sounds really good, especially the drums which are really punchy. Perhaps not quite reference stuff but very good for a live recording. Worth considering if one is a Weezer fan.
Since the pressing isn't a heavyweight one there's a lot of audible surface noise during the quiet sections but besides that the sound is phenomenal! I would highly recommend the LP.
Latest five. First three are vinyl and the two others CDs.
John Coltrane - Blue Train [Analogue Productions, 45rpm 2 LP]
John Coltrane - My Favorite Things [Original Recordings Group, 45rpm 2 LP]
Oliver Nelson - The Blues and the Abstract Truth [Analogue Productions, 45rpm 2 LP]
Hiromi - Move
Esa-Pekka Salonen - Out of Nowhere
Since I've finally gotten everything for my turntable after waiting two and a half months and set it up, here are a few pictures for those who might be interested.
