4 Sep 2014, 05:23 by paralukesaw this on facebook a little bit ago and thought it would be cool to do. in alphabetical order by artist, the 10 albums that have impacted me the most:
Amy Winehouse - Back to Black
Brand New - Your Favorite Weapon
Bright Eyes - Letting Off the Happiness
Broken Social Scene - You Forgot It In People
Death Cab for Cutie - Plans
Joyce Manor - Joyce Manor
Modest Mouse - The Moon & Antarctica
Mindless Self Indulgence - You'll Rebel To Anything
Regina Spektor - Songs
The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die - Whenever, If Ever
admittedly, it was a bit of a tossup between Your Favorite Weapon and arcade fire's Funeral. but, although Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) is imo one of the most perfect songs ever created, brand new's album as a whole has affected me more.

Eine interessante Gruppe. Sehr dezent, beinahe schon so sehr, dass man meinen könnte, da sei gar nichts. Dann aber die wundervolle Stimme des Sängers, die feinen Arrangements, dieses Gespür für kleine Spannungen, die Wogen des Songs. So vieles ist eingefangen und so vieles bleibt hängen.
Und spätestens bei einem Song wie Changing Colours zieht es auch mich mit.
Belle and Sebastian
Die sind toll! Zunächst einmal liebe ich die Stimme des Sängers. Dieses leicht Verschlafene, Ruhige und auch Zerbrechliche. Dazu eine Musik, die ich zunächst am Ehesten als "leicht" betiteln würde, dann aber sehen würde, alle negativen Konnotationen davon abzustreifen. Denn glatt, platt oder leer klingt hier gar nichts, dafür sind die Songs viel zu fein komponiert, abwechslungsreich und lyrisch sehr auf eine vielseitige Identifikation angelegt. Die Lieder auf ihrem Album If You're Feeling Sinister machen es mir ganz einfach leichter, mit den Sorgen, die sich immer wieder so ergeben, umzugehen.

so here's a better, concise list of my collection, including pictures
19 Oct 2011, 15:57 by HaikuqueenIt's been a week, but I still haven't gotten satisfaction on this point, and so I'm going to write this journal entry.
I was at a Wye Oak/Explosions in the Sky last week and there were a couple of men standing behind me at the sold-out show having a discussion about Soul Coughing. I am a big fan of Soul Coughing from my latter high school days, and the place was packed, so it was hard not to listen in. The person doing most of the talking was commenting on an ad for Mike Doughty's next performance and saying that he missed Soul Coughing and the former frontman rapping over Sebastian and Yuval's beats (Yuval Gabay, where are you? Wikipedia says drumming for )Asian Dub Foundation). I agree wholeheartedly with this. The man went on to say that M. Doughty's current stylings are not nearly as fun and incisive as his work with Soul Coughing. I agree with this also. Then the guy says, "I want the M. Doughty who wrote El Oso back. He should go back on heroin."
1 Sep 2011, 11:42 by zombiederekI have always loved writing about music I enjoy and I thought this would be a nice way to start. Ten albums that I have grown to love and think everyone should enjoy, at least once. I'm gonna be fair and not repeat an artist more than once, leaving me to choose an album I feel is the best from an artist. Are you ready? Cause here we go... (and these are in no particular order, by the way)
1) Rockin' The Suburbs - Ben Folds
What can I say? The man is a genius. I didn't climb aboard the Folds train until early 2005. The first exposure I was given to him was the Sessions at West 54th St. DVD, along with Darren and Robert. I was hooked immediately. From the opening they were given, ("If you've seen these guys before, you're a fan, if you haven't, you're about to be.") I was hooked. That opening line has resonated so true with me, but this is the album that sucked me in so deep. From the peppy opening, to its gentle end, it's gold. …
