Music Overload

Between Christmas gifts and my own purchases, my music collection grew a great deal in the last half of December. Here’s a list of recent acquisitions:

Cosmic Game by Thievery Corporation : AWESOME. Buy this CD!
Lemonade by G.Love : WOW. Interesting modern rockabilly blues.
Live from Austin Tx by Neko Case : Excellent. The world would be infinitely poorer without Austin City Limits.
Funeral by Arcade Fire : Also Excellent. As my brother would say “good chillin' music”.
Slash & Burn: The Best of the BoDeans by The BoDeans : Great. I’ve been a fan of these guys ever since discovering “Good Things” in college. Great group with a surprising number of songs I forgot I liked.
Harpo’s Ghost by Thea Gilmore : Very Good. Britain has been producing a lot more quality indie-pop lately. Ms. Gilmore is one of my favorties in the new crowd.
Fox Confessor Brings the Flood by Neko Case : Good. Not quite as good as the live album but a solid addition to my music collection.

At the rate I’ve been going I’m going to have to buy a bigger CD case soon.
