2010-01-27romance is boring today was the north american release date for the new los campesinos! album "romance is boring". i resisted listening to any of the leaks online. i love this band blindly; i would buy anything they release. so i went to hmv after having lunch with my friend.
the cover art is boring, but this music is so much fun to listen to.
2010-01-26kaleidoscope i've been listening to some electro lately. today, i got tiësto's recent release "kaleidoscope".
i love that the collaborators on this release are not usually associated with the electro genre, which makes the resultant tracks interesting.
one of my favourites is the opening title track , featuring jónsi of sigur rós:
i also like "feel it in my bones", featuring tegan & sara:
2010-01-14contra i had only heard about vampire weekend from the many mentions on pitchfork. but i had not checked out their music, until rox wrote about their song "horcata". and yeah, it's a damn catchy song.
their album "contra" was released this week. i got it after school today. it came with a bonus "contra megamelt" cd.
i'm not sure how to describe this album. for some reason, it makes me think of a lazy day at the beach. which is what i need now, in this cold and grey winter season.
2010-01-13heartland first cd purchase of the year!
yesterday, the new final fantasy/owen pallett album "heartland" was released. i got it on my way back home.
i love the simplicity of the front and back covers.
unfortunately, i haven't had the chance to listen to this too much. been too busy with school work (i.e., i procrastinated all week, and now i need to prepare for my meeting with my advisor tomorrow).
