Recent music purchases

So back in the day some of us were big on sharing our latest purchases. I always thought of it as a nice conversation starter and as a way of finding out about other music and releases.
I figured I’ll try it again.

Most recent purchase:


Elevator to Hell - Parts 1-3 (vinyl reissue)

Jacob Earl - Drumz and a Baalloonn (Bandcamp digital release)

This was my most visited thread for sure.


Lady Wray - Piece of Me

Erin Rae - Lighten Up

All three on Bandcamp, a platform I absolutely love.

These arrived on January 31st. They were held at customs from December 10th 2021 through January 13th 2022. But since I was on vacation I had to tell DHL to drop them after I got back.

I’d highly rec the Soul Jazz label. Pretty much everything they release (books and albums) are exemplary.

@Dream_Brother I Just heard “Afrique Victime” late last year and love it but I haven’t heard any of his other stuff yet.

My last musical purchase was NAIHF reissue 2 disc version and still have to buy the 3 disc version of it.

Not that very interested in “new” music these days. Found recently that I lost somewhere 5 or 6 CDs and must replace them and willing to complete my Bryan Adams collection. So, hoping to buy about 10 CD in the next couple of months but no novelties.

One of my favorites from last year. Check out his previous album Iliana: the Creator, too. Great stuff.

Current circumstances require that I live pretty close to the bone. I also have space limitations issues that are likely going to lead to me having to part with all physical media in the not too distant future, For those reasons I haven’t purchased any new music in the past couple years. However, I made an exception late last year with Oxford American’s annual Southern Music issue. In 2020, for the first time ever they did away with the sampler CD in lieu of Spotify playlists. However, they responded to their readers by bringing back the CD last year. I love every one they’ve ever released but have to say this is one of my favorites. If interested, you can find the tracklist here:

All good, though I Have Made a Place is my favourite.

Yes! Superwolves is excellent, but I think I Have Made a Place may be one of the very best things he’s ever done!

You may have already heard it, but there’s an album by Three Queens in Mourning called Hello Sorrow, Hello Joy. It’s three Glasgow-based musicians covering Will Oldham songs. It’s very good. There’s a particularly beautiful song called No Such As I Want. I’ve never heard the Bonnie Prince Billy version. Can’t find it anywhere, not even YouTube. Great song.

I recently ordered three Boy Harsher releases on vinyl from their Bandcamp page…
Yr Body is Nothing
Country Girl EP
Careful

What showed up in the mail today was…
Yr Body is Nothing
Country Girl EP
Lesser Man EP

I already own Lesser Man. Careful is the only Boy Harsher release that I am lacking on vinyl. I sent a kind email to the record label about the error, so that should take care of it.

At any rate, I’m spinning the two correct order records right now, and am loving the sound on wax.
