I'm calling it that for now because my new day off is Tuesday. And I've decided that Tuesday will be the day I venture to the Library to collect the 15 or so cds I invariably have waiting for me. And conveniently enough, the library happens to be oh so close to Sonic Boom Records. Like new books, new music is released on Tuesdays. Which means, should a favorite band put out a new album, New Music Tuesday would be a trip to the library, and to Sonic Boom. Because, after all, I do still buy music...in cd form, if you can believe it. I still don't buy anything from the iTunes or any other interwebs place, but I will lay down some hard earned cash at my local record store. Also, my new vinyl obsession sort of leaves me no choice but to patronize Sonic Boom. And why not? They are amazing! They order anything, and leave you alone to browse, and let you test out records, and they never judge a person for how much Killers' shit she buys. They are awesome. Plus, they are local and independent, and treat their employees a hell of a lot better than Amazon ever will. BRICKS AND MORTAR!
So, back to New Music Tuesday. Here's some of the stuff I picked up from the library today and am loving:
Tame Impala- Lonerism
Psychedelic, trance-y, cool. Feels Like We Only Go Backwards is perfect.
Daft Punk- Random Access Memories
Yeah, I'm late to the party. You can't be surprised. I like this more than I thought I would. Especially Instant Crush with Julian Casablancas. That track, I LOVE.
Palma Violets- 180
My favorite of the bunch. This one's gonna be on repeat for awhile. It's really good. Really, really good. You've heard Best of Friends but everything on this album is fantastic. 14 is a favorite. But then, the "slow," earnest songs usually are.
