I couldn`t find the old "newly acquired music"-thread, so I`m making a new one.

(The other day I was guilty of using the "What are you listening to now"-thread to post a record I had just bought, but was not listening to at the time. And we can`t have that now, can we.)

So ...

What happened RuDi? I know the guy on the right is dead, but her...


Just because of this post I bought this:

yesterday. I found it very cheap in a second hand store. I had forgotten about this band, and haven`t listened to them for over a decade.

Very good voice.

The music, except the vocals of course, kind of reminds me of Chris Isaac.

Dani Klein has one of the best voices in belgian music history...

The album you bought is an absolute classic over here, much to my shame I never got round to buying it, but I know every single song on it...

Second hand stores can be real goldmines of course and sometimes even flea markets can provide real nice surprises...

I found these just recently from a 2nd hand bargain bin from local record company's shop:

Marti Brom in kind of a Patsy Cline mood:

Local rockabilly band The Barnshakers (that sometimes accompanies Marti Brom),
here on their own with a Johnny Cash cover (5 Minutes To Live) among others:

Nice stuff all 3 and cheap as well...

P:ano - Ghost Pirates Without Heads


No, that's not a typo.

Wonderfully twee music filled with ukes, glockenspiels, oboes, toy pianos, tambourines and beautiful vocal harmonies.

A more stripped-down version of Belle and Sebastien, perhaps.


acquiringly,

Very good. I listened to it again yesterday. It sounds like singing like that comes so easy to her.

Like I said, she's one of the best belgian voices ever...
She started out as a backing vocalist of one of our most legendary rock bands...TC Matic with that guy on lead vocals I've mentioned a few times on this here board...ARNO...ofcourse...

The title track "Time flies" is on my mind constantly, and I can`t wait to get home to listen to it.

She hits every note perfectly, and with so much power, yet it sounds so effortless. Big voices and singers like that impress me. (Though I normally prefer male singers.)

There is this other flemish girl who gets to me vocal wise...
Her name is Geike Arnaert and she sings in a band called Hooverphonic...

Hooverphonic makes some kind of triphop (you know, Portishead...), i do not particularly like the music although they have made some very nice songs...but if you hear that woman sing...brrr...shivers...

Wow, Rudi...she makes me shiver, and I've never even heard her sing!

My most recent CD purchase is the "remastered/expanded" version of The Pogues "If I Should Fall From Grace With God". I went to Borders today hoping to find the imported magazines that Tom is on...no luck. They're behind. They have November's "Harp", so I should be able to find the December Waits issue in a few weeks. But they don't carry "The Word" or "Stop Smiling" magazines. So I bought me some Pogues.

I had to upgrade , cuz my original Pogues CD would no longer play "Turkish Song OF The Damned" onward. And I can't be havin' that.

As I type this, there are 3 burly rough & tough redneck guys in my basement who are installing a new hot water heater. I haven't had hot water in my house for 3 days.. I had to impose on friends to let me come over to their place to shower/shave before work... So I'm in my living room, cranking my new/old Pogues CD, and the water-heater workers have commented on it a few times, one of them told me, "You listen to some crazy-ass shit, dont-cha?"...
One of them really dug "Fiesta" though....

Oh, and I did reserve a copy of "Orphans"...they said they could only do in-store reserves if they were expecting 10 or more copies of an item...they're expecting to recieve 10 copies of Orphans, so I was able to get on the short-list.. Have to go cancel my Amazon order before I forget...

Too short, but so good. I'm still holding out hope that someone will wise up and they'll release a complete peel sessions collection someday. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

I plan to get that new PJ "Peel Sessions" disc soon...waiting until after Orphans for monetary/holiday season issues, but I will. I've not missed a PJ album yet.
She does a damn fine "Wang Dang Doodle"...

Just bumped into that PJ disk yesterday. Need to check it out. Right, that should read need to get it.
Agree w/the idea of releasing a complete Peel sessions collection someday.
What would keep anyone from doing this ASAP?


Have recently picked up these and I can highly reccommend them already.
Return to Cookie Mountain ~ TV on the Radio
Post-War ~ M Ward
The Boxing Mirror ~ Alejandro Escovedo

I have no idea how I'm gonna manage a top 10 list this year.
There's been more than a few good ones.

Edit: Ah, crap! How could I forget The Hold Steady CD????
Have ya heard it? Seriously, seriously a must have.
If they're playing near you go -- if you can get tix.

Boys and Girls in America ~ The Hold Steady


Looking into this Jesse Malin next. I hear great things.
