wanted to show you all the records i bought

The New Record gods are quite cruel.

In a penny pinching effort, I haven't set foot in my favorite record store in a couple of months. As punishment for this, the New Record gods have bombarded the store with records I ought to buy.
I didn't jot down the list of new records that made me go "Oh, hell yeah!", but it was long. Here's a partial list:
  • The Dandy Warhols Odditorium

  • Sigur Rós Takk...

  • Portastatic Bright Ideas

  • Björk Drawing Restraint 9

  • Michael Penn Mr Hollywood, Jr 1847

  • Rosebuds Birds Make Good Neighbors

  • New Pornographers Twin Cinema

  • Death Cab for Cutie Plans

You see my predicament? That's just the short list!

I only walked away with the new Dandys and the new Sigur Rós. I'm not a gozillionaire. So far, I'm only a few songs deep into the Dandys record, and I like it. Tonight I shall listen to Takk several times.

now playing:
Dandy Warhols -- Odditorium or Warlords of Mars

I hear ya. Thumbs up to "Plans" and the New Pornographers album - there's nothing like Neko Case's voice coming in on "The Bleeding Heart Show" - so sweet. I should really check out that Dandy's album, and my wallet told me to refrain from buying that Portostatic album the other day after listening to near the whole thing in the store, but I may have to tell my wallet to piss of and go back and just get it.

The new Portastatic is excellent. Nearly as satisfying as a new Superchunk record. Also, a friend at work loaned me that Micheal Penn record and even though I've never really taken an interest (he insisted I listen), I'm totally impressed.
