Some new purchases today, both specially ordered through the local record store. I got the call that they came in about an hour before the store closed today, and rushed over to grab them before six. Though I only ordered late last week, I've wanted both of these albums for a number of years. I could've probably saved two or three dollars by ordering through Amazon, but I need to keep shopping at brick-and-mortar stores even for special orders if I want any hope of being able to hop in the car and come back home with new music the same day on a whim.

 

Reservoir is my first Fanfarlo album, but I've been following the group casually for some time now and really love their folky vibe. The band uses all of the same ambient sound tricks and singing saw layers that turned Mutual Benefit into one of the big rising stars of the folk world late last year, but they do it around a faster-paced, slightly heavier and more rock-oriented song format. It's a really good combination, with an organic yet energetic sound.

 

On the other hand, I own over half of Elbow's discography, and I've been waiting to get my hands on a copy of The Seldom Seen Kid for a very long time now. Elbow is far and away my favorite British band of the modern era, combining soaring rock with a creative flair that you simply cannot find in many other acts. Guy Harvey and the group are masters of using organs, percussive reverb, and various other sound layers to create songs which sound almost like pop rock from afar, but astound with their complexity and power up close.

 

I cannot recommend either of these albums enough. They're both fantastic.

Thanks to MattTCG for this one:

 

I'm really enjoying this band and in my research I discovered that Dave Lamb is recovering from a bone marrow transplant. Check out their site at http://brownbird.net/about/ for more info. Get well soon, Dave!

Saw the movie on Amazon awhile back, never thought of the soundtrack. Dig that album! (on Spotify)

Bob Dylan's "Motorpsycho Nightmare" made me smile several times and literally laugh out loud "So I yelled I like Fidel Castro and his beard!" and all the Psycho references is pretty awesome.  

 

Also downloaded this after hearing Dylan's version of "House of The Rising Sun"  Might as well get their version and "We've Gotta Get Outta This Place"

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90
