    Hmmm, how did you get that one when it's supposed to be released September 25, 2012


    It's a pre release promo.

    3 Questions...

    Did this album have the joy of taking a trip into the ears of Purple Blues?

    and what did the brain of Purple Blues make of it?

    Did you get the promo on CD or glorious vinyl or other?

    I love Gavins Voice and Music!!! How is the latest Record "Sweeter"? Didn´t have it!

    And how did u get 5? Did I miss one? Or did u count Chariot - 'Stripped' as Number 2?

    Funny how much music can be found when u watch TV-Series! I recognize his
    amazing voice when he played a mini-role as a street musician in the fantastic (in my
    eyes) series Dead Like Me from 2004.

    Yes I did count Stripped

    I like Sweeter, Gavin seems to be getting better with each record. Sweater has more of an edge to it. Past albums sounded a bit too clean. He really knows how to sell the Chorus of a song.

    Anyway check your inbox Notez

    Thanks Maxim

    And my latest acquisitions are:

    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    what a combination....I know, but this is the scoop !

    And one of my latest achievement are BRAND NEW...That´s the name of the band, and for me they are brand new!

    The first release are pure EMOcore...if u want so, the second are more experimental Popprogrockemo and the third one, which I bought first was/is:

    [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

    The Devil And God Are Raging In Me

    I tried here the same way like PB1 and bought by the cover...and must say:


    WOOOOOOOOOOW, none of the last (young) Rockalternativegroups are amaze me more then they do!

    The album is....ah better I copy and paste a review in here:


    When Brand New released Deja Entendu in mid-2003, it caught a lot of their fans off guard. It found the band taking a stylistic leap forward from the clever (albeit cookie-cutter) pop-punk of their 2001 debut, exploring expanded sonic textures and indie rock overtones, their urgent choruses tempered by acoustic musings and softer introspections. It all seemed very deliberate yet completely natural all the same, and the record was an underground smash. Something even more substantial was definitely brewing beneath the band's emo façade, and as a result, Brand New's follow-up was hotly anticipated for the three years it took the band to release it. The resulting The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me is the completion of their pop-punk molting process and one of the best surprises -- that isn't really a surprise at all -- to come out of 2006. Even when they were playing straightforward pop-punk ditties, Brand New had an edge to them that made them seem smarter than their peers; now they sound even older and stronger (and like they've been listening to a lot of '90s college and indie rock). This record is dark and dense, yet accessible, a shadowy air permeating every crevice where Jesse Lacey's plaintive and often tortured lyrics aren't already residing. He draws listeners in with vulnerable ruminations and questions of love, death, self, and religion, and his vocal inflections bring as much meaning to the table as his carefully chosen words. The opening "Sowing Season" ebbs and flows steadily, moving along under light guitar before exploding with percussion, Lacey ably switching from a hushed delivery into an anguished cry of emotion before falling back down again effortlessly. With it, Brand New sets up the somber intensity of the record straightaway. Textural and sonic layers unfold at every turn -- punching drums and trembling guitars here, aching vocals and subtle touches of string there -- and the album moves with a directed force that seems so naturally powerful and uncontrived, it's almost ridiculous to think that the band cut its teeth with poppy anthems like "Jude Law and a Summer Abroad." The Devil and God is not an album of hooks; the excellent percussive stomp of "The Archers Bows Have Broken" is the most immediate here, but songs get stuck in the brain nonetheless and demand repeated spins. Old fans especially smitten by Deja's "Play Crack the Sky" have no excuse not to love everything about this record, as even lengthy tracks (like the near-eight-minute "Limousine" or the chill-inducing beauty of "Jesus") are completely compelling. People who were ready to discount Brand New into the emo/TRL heap of the 2000s better rethink their stance; Brand New seems to know exactly what they're doing and this record is a testament to their ability to stay true to themselves. Whether they want to stay underground or fully break into the mainstream, this album has the potential to do either. Either way it doesn't really matter -- whatever happens, there's no denying how excellent this record is.

    3 for £10 and Public Service Broadcasting was via Amazon after a friend sent me a link to it... fabulous stuff, a mix of archive war speeches and prog / kraut rock music, very clever and thoughtful.
    Bex Marshall and 24 Pesos - new blues artists, promo CD's... Mojo's "The Wall2 - fabulous recreation with each track by a different artist, my favourite being "Crippled Black Phoenix" doing "Run like Hell"...


    sunny sunny sunny
    And am waiting for Mr Amazon to deliver "Sylvan" CD from Germany ( scoop style prog) and other goodies...

    The Monsters Of Folk

    Post by maxim9691 on Sat Dec 15, 2012 11:34 pm

    The Monsters Of Folk

    Monsters of Folk is an American supergroup, consisting of Jim James from My Morning Jacket, Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis from Bright Eyes, and M. Ward, renowned solo artist and half of the group She & Him.[1] The band was formed in 2004 when the members were on tour with their respective bands and solo projects. After playing together both on-stage and backstage, they started working together on various material. Due to the members' main projects, Monsters of Folk did not wrap up their first album until 2009, and it was released on September 22 on Rough Trade.[2] It debuted at 143 on the Billboard Top 200 and peaked at 15.[3] It also reached No. 3 on Top Independent Albums, No. 8 on Top Rock Albums, No. 7 on Top Digital Albums, and No. 6 on Top Alternative Albums.[4]

    Their song "Baby Boomer" was chosen as the Starbucks iTunes Pick of the Week for October 27, 2009.[5]

    October 23 & 24 2009 they performed at Neil Young's 23rd annual Bridge School Benefit held in Mountain View, California at the Shoreline Amphitheater.

    During live performances, Will Johnson is the performing drummer. In their appearance on Austin City Limits, James declared him as "the fifth Monster", making him an official member.

    M. Ward has stated that there is more to come after Monsters of Folk's first album

    as we are ressurecting old posts, I thought I'd let you know that HMV might be folloiwng Woolworth, but I'm still doing my bit to corner the world market in albums.
    today, for £11 I purchased these:-

    The Barb Jungr is very mellow - Kate Bush does jazz covers of Tom Waits, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan etc. gets rave reviews on Amazon.
    Robert Vincent is a UK singer songwriter, bit country, full of emotion, again, Amazon like him.
    I'd never heard of either of them but purchased on the strength of liking the artwork and a sixth sense...
