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? Shoot.
2Ani DiFranco

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

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

my nigga
Paso Inferior

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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

Ramy Almerie
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.

24Hop Along
Get Disowned

At least with you I got to be young and happy

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