New Music Sunday

Spending a lazy Sunday afternoon at home. I drove up to Hollywood this morning to shop at Amoeba on Sunset. Picked up the Black Mountain album, the new Calexico/Iron & Wine CD, two Replacements discs ("Tim" and "Please to Meet Me"), the Stooges "Fun House" reissue, Descendents "All," the Damned "Damned Damned Damned," and Public Image Ltd. "First Issue." As you can tell I was on a sort of retro mood. On my list, which they didn't have in stock were the CDs by Art Brut and the Hazard Hotrods.

And just so we don't forget, here are the last 10 songs played on my iPod:

1. "Severed Lips" by the Blake Babies
2. "Children of the Damned" by Iron Maiden
3. "Mr. Tambourine Man" by Bob Dylan
4. "Long Snake Moon" by PJ Harvey
5. "Code Blue" by T.S.O.L.
6. "Mind Games" by John Lennon
7. "The Game" by Love & Rockets
8. "Master of Puppets" by Metallica
9. "Fall Down Easy" by Uncle Tupelo
10. "Nike-a-Go-Go" by the Misfits

(You try juxtaposing T.S.O.L. and John Lennon.)

Even my iPod is in a retro mood. But just in case you think I am one of those guys whose favorite band is still, like, The Police or whatever they liked in high school, some recent artists I listen to include Death Cab For Cutie, Interpol, Sufjan Stevens, The New Pornographers and Bright Eyes. The last concert I went to was the New Pornographers, and before that it was Beck. So, I ain't dead yet.

Anyway, I'm still trying to figure out my way around the purpose of this blog, but expect some reviews of new CDs, some recommendations on old CDs, top 10 lists, some stories of my retail past and, of course, what my iPod is thinking.

So, until next time, don't be such an idiot.
