you're insatiable. i haven't bought a new (not used...) CD in a LONG time. i do some music writing so I do get free CDs in the mail... whatever those are, I take 'em. And I buy some used CDs now and then. But new CDs, those are a real treat. Maybe this is just because I'm poor...

well, i end up pretty poor due to my cd habit. hell, i even get behind on things. but i do think this recent trend of buying loads of new music lately comes down to two things. i bought and listened to so much old stuff in the beginning of the year that it has burned me out on anything old. so now, i just buy new music to compensate. and then there ended up being a ton of music that came out in the last month that i wanted. it's all weird sort of.

Best CD to come out this year. No, I shouldn't write off Fishscale that quickly, but still, this CD is a-fucking-mazing. If it's number 2, it's awfully close.

Built to Spill-You in Reverse
VA-Tropicalia: A Brazilian Revolution in Sound
Cee-Lo Green-...Is the Soul Machine
(St. Elswhere is so good I had to try this.)
Mission of Burma-The Obliterati

I also downloaded Dangerdoom's Occult Hymn EP, which I was dissapointed by. None of the remixes are as good as the originals (Space Hos is the only one that's even close to it's original) and Korn Dogz was rather sub-par. Still, worth what it cost.

i don't think gnarls barkley is the best cd to come out this year. i haven't played it much. yet, i've been wearing out the new paul simon and the new angels and airwaves cd's. built to spill is also excellent. but alas i don't think that gnarls barkley will be on my top ten. considering frank black's new one has lodged itself to the already overcrowded top 5. we'll see though.

How is this 'un? Should the slavish reviews be taken at face value? I love Burma, consider their reunion a miracle, and have been blown away 3 or 4 times by their live shows (since 2002...I was too young to have caught them the first time around) but I still remain dubious about their newly issued product.

J Dilla's "Donuts" is pretty tasty this Summer.


Howe Gelb's "Sno Angel Like You" has been doin' it for me along with

Tapes 'n Tapes "The Loon"

Islands "Return to the Sea"

Black Keys "Chulahoma EP"

As well as plethora of others that escape me.
