First Song You Heard: Peacebone // My friend Jeremy would always play this song for me, and I really didn't like it for quite a while, but then one time Jeffimprov was telling me about them and they played the album at Tealuxe, and I kinda like it, so I gave them a chance and am very glad I did.

7 Ago 2010, 0:04 de beastie_clyroThere was nothing to do at work today, so I decided to do this! All scrobbles correct as of 11pm, August 6th. (I totally stole this idea from xShadow1 too, so thanks!)
Biffy Clyro (2,558)
I would love them even more than I do now if they'd never released Puzzle. I'd rather they stopped making music altogether after putting out the Only One Word Comes to Mind single and b-sides. I'd sacrifice never having heard Living Is A Problem Because Everything Dies, That Golden Rule and the better b-sides from the Puzzle and Only Revolutions singles. Allow me to explain.
On the day of Puzzle's release, a friend and myself hurried down to HMV Oxford Street at 7am to get our special edition copies and our wristbands for the instore gig later that day. They were playing the album over the PA, but we were so excited to listen to it properly that we covered our ears. We hurried home to listen to it. With each song, we sighed, hoping the next would be better... but they weren't. It wasn't. We mourned.

29 Ene 2010, 21:59 de enfysmwngI'm still slightly excited about it being 2010, if you ever needed any evidence to support your initial impression of my lame ways. For that reason, and that it'll get confusing otherwise, the year is also noted this time around.
The Distant Future
We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes
I doubt I'll get any more this month and I'm not sure it's so likely that I'll get any next month, either. I'm saving up for other things and am determined not to let my obsessive album/EP-collecting lead me astray. Also, next month, living in Norfolk for 3 days with my classmates as I study Geography! Awwwahhh.
(Norfolk must be awesome, it has the word 'folk' in it.)

This one was tough. A month ago, Bat for Lashes would have got the top spot for her gorgeous second album Two Suns. I have been listening to it regularly since it came out in the spring and I was sure it would triumph over all comers in what has been, for me, a supernova year in music. I thought Two Suns was as well-crafted and assured as anything emerging from the Brooklyn pop explosion (your Grizzly Animal Projectors), but ultimately it was Natasha Khan's vocal performances: hushed and yearning in 'Daniel', lonely and delirious in 'Sleep Alone', out-Florenceing Florence on 'Glass', that pushed her ahead. However, while a powerful voice can transform uninspiring lyrics, the lyrics do remain uninspiring. The dual persona idea didn't do anything for me, and the fantastical symbols sometimes got a little cliched and silly. This very slightly marred my appreciation of the album, and allowed another to sneak in and steal the top spot.
