So last night I didn’t go out to a show…and I didn’t have enough work to do to occupy my entire evening…and I wasn’t so tired that I needed to go to bed by 8pm. This, let me tell you, is a very rare occurrence. It’s also very dangerous…I can get up to no good when left to my own devices. I wandered out of my apartment and ended up at Best Buy (also very dangerous). I left Best Buy with…umm…several…new CDs. Then I went back home and purchased online the CDs that I couldn’t find at the store.
By the end of the evening, my haul looked like this (and trust me, the number of CDs I had in my hands, but didn’t buy would probably have doubled this).
- Almost Alice– various artists (music inspired by the upcoming Alice in Wonderland movie)
- This Addiction– Alkaline Trio
- Transference– Spoon
- Sad Man Happy Man – Mike Doughty
- Future Selves – Transfer
- Black Rebel Motorcycle Club Live
- Under the Covers Vol. 2– Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs
- B.R.M.C.- Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
- Horizon– Matthew Jordan
Obviously, I’m too paralyzed by all the fantastic new music to let you know what I think about any one individual CD…but let me just say the stand out thus far is definitely the offering from Matthew Sweet and Susanna Hoffs. I mean, come on, they cover “All the Young Dudes”…dude! 🙂
