|Albums I Gots ta Get|
Pretty self-explanatory. Been a while since I visited my local record shop, so here's what I'm on the hunt to acquire.
After The Party
Been jamming Impossible Past and Rented World a bunch lately, definitely looking forward to this bad boy.
Took me a while to get into Eros/Anteros, but that record grew on me quite a bit, and what I've listened to from this sounds (to me, at least) even better.
Guys don't get nearly enough attention, in my opinion.
Posture of Apology
Tired of Defending You has gotten pretty steady rotation from me, and I actually just listened to You, Fear, and Me, so the timing on this couldn't be better, really.
Another undersung band, in my opinion. Profanity is amazing.
A Shadow in Time
Not everybody's cup of tea, understandably, and even I've gotta be in the right frame of mind (or, y'know, lying down in bed) to fully appreciate this, but this seems to be some prime, melancholy, sad-as-shit decaying loops.
These guys (and, temporarily, basically just guy, singular) certainly fell off big time in the back-half of their discography so far, but early reports have this being a lot more in the vein of the collaborative efforts of their debut and II, which has got me cautiously intrigued.
Near To The Wild Heart Of Life
Honestly forgot about these guys until reports were surfacing late last year about their half-decade-later follow-up to Celebration Rock. Still, if it captures the energy of that record, it will have been worth the wait.
Their debut EP is a fun--if slight--effort, but they showed a lot of potential that I'm hoping is more thoroughly realized here. Also, just got tickets to see them opening for Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties, which should be a pretty sweet show, regardless.
This came out of the blue, but if Sputnik's own instructions are to be believed, I should stop overthinking it and "Just buy it!"
