With His Arms Outstretched

I'm really bored, here are 25 albums I like this month!
1Godspeed You! Black Emperor
'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!


Can you get her? Do you see her? ...no. Shoot.
2Ani DiFranco
Dilate


"Untouchable Face" is such a magnificent song, the rest of the album is almost as good.
3Yamantaka // Sonic Titan
YT//ST


I don't even know how to describe this but it's noisy and gorgeous, get it.
4Sudatsuga
Blue Moon Saiyeed


my nigga
5Corrupted
Paso Inferior


mmmm
6Okkervil River
Don't Fall In Love With Everyone You See


I will forever and always be digging this album. New favourite thing to do: play drums along to Westfall.
7The Mountain Goats
Transcendental Youth


I just bought this on vinyl 180 gram, looks sexy. I appreciate the art much more now that I own the record. Since I listed this, the next 3 are recent acquisitions as well.
8Brian Eno
Ambient 1: Music For Airports


I bought this at Zulu Records, on West 4th Ave. in Vancouver. It's one of my favourite record stores and they always have lots of great stuff. This is an original 1978 pressing in really good quality. It is second-hand, but the record has no scratches. At $25, it's a good buy. A definite must-have for my record collection. I'm actually trying to get a job at this place so I was talking to the manager as she rang up my purchase. She was impressed that I snatch the Eno record, and said she was jealous because they come in rarely and go quickly.
9Mike Oldfield
Tubular Bells


I bought this for $5 at the cleverly title record stored Audiopile, on Commercial Drive. The sleeve is a bit damaged but the record itself is fine.
10Leftfield
Leftism


This album is holy shit incredible. It came out in 1995 too. I was introduced to this band by my friend's aunt who lives in Dorset in Southern England. She was a super cool older lady that had a couple joints with us while we drank wine and listened to music. She was as enthusiastic about sharing her favourite music with randoms as I am, and it was nice to meet someone else like that in real life, especially someone of 60 ish years. Cool lady, great music, good times.
11Marijuana Deathsquads
Tamper, Disable, Destroy


Hip-hop from Minnesota, thanks to Sobhi for this one.
12Ultraista
Ultraista


This is the musical project of Neil Godrich (producer of Radiohead fame). Keyboard based indie-rock with lush electronic sounds and great female vocals. This should probably be more popular on here.
13Dan Mangan
Nice, Nice, Very Nice


Another perpetual dig, and also another recent vinyl acquisition. I bought this record after seeing him live in Victoria. Amazing show, fun and intimate. I'll hopefully be seeing him again with The Rural Alberta Advantage on Now 9.
14Screaming Females
Ugly


rock/punk band with a screming female for a vocalist (sort of). they're from New Bruswick WAIT in the state of New Jersey. (apparently that's a place).
15 Flying Lotus
Until The Quiet Comes


I'll be seeing this guy live finally on Monday and am really pumped. I think his new album is his best work yet, and I have high hopes for his live show.
16Menomena
Moms


Hopefully I can make it to their show on Oct. 25. I know they are down to two members now but the new album is soooooo good.
17This Heat
Deceit


I can't stop listening to this album. It's so twisted an eerie but strangely addictive.
18John Frusciante
Letur-Lefr


It's too bad that RHCP are mediocre now, but we'll always have Frusciante!
19Wild Nothing
Nocturne


Ramy Almerie
20Alexisonfire
Watch Out!


Four tickets for their last ever BC show have been purchased! Skulls will be rocked, nostalgia will be errrywhere, and my fourth (and yet sadly my final) time seeing teenage Adrian's favourite hardcore band will hopefully be my last. December 17th make it count!
21The Cinematic Orchestra
In Motion #1


The new album is not their best but it's stellar. Fantastic band.
22Rise Against
Siren Song of the Counter Culture


Another one of the punk bands I worshiped in my early musical expansion. I finally had the chance to see these guy a couple of weeks ago and I jumped at the chance, because I feared it would be their last tour. Their show was super high energy and packed with a good variation of songs. I started digging their newer stuff more a few days before the show, so that helped. It was a great show and I can now cross them off the list.
23Eluvium
Copia


sleeeeeep
24Hop Along
Get Disowned


At least with you I got to be young and happy
25Emay
Adam


fuck around, punch babies...swagger of a lunch lady
