  • Bjork, Debut: I can't believe I didn't have this one. "Human Behavior", "Venus As A Boy", and "Anchor Song" are some of my absolute favorites of hers.
  • Nirvana, In Utero: hah. isn't everyone in the mood for this every now and then? it was such a deal that I couldn't resist.
  • Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band, Doc At the Radar Station: :). Such bizarre imagery, but as strange as it is it makes sense. He's talking about being used by a lover in the song "Ashtray Heart" and he uses this image: "I feel like a glass shrimp in a pink panty." Honestly, it makes me chuckle and shake my head every time. That's the greatest image of embarrassment I think I have ever heard.
  • The Klezmatics, Possessed: Honestly, whoever put this on sale for $2.99 is freaking off their rocker! What a steal! These guys won a grammy (though not for this album) this year and it was well deserved. These folks write and play some of the most beautiful and innovative klezmer. This album is more traditional than their more recent stuff, and it's wonderful for brushing up on that Yiddish. ;)
  • Caribou, Andorra
  • Saint Vincent, Marry Me
  • Inti-Illimani, Lejania
  • The National, Boxer
  • Neil Young, Live at Massey Hall

user picture jenz: how is the national and st. vincent? they are playing in my town next week together and i was thinking about seeing them! sep 18 2007
user picture Elizabeth: I'm seeing them this week, too! You should definitely consider going! The National is one of those bands that really grows on you because it doesn't have a lot of immediate pop hooks, but once you're into it, it's hard to stop listening. :) And St. Vincent is pretty great. I have to admit I haven't listened to the album all the way through yet, but so far so good!
