11 Ene 2008, 22:24 de TancreadMy top ten albums for 2007 can be found here at my blog. I won't rewrite all that here but it was an odd mix this year with some albums I thought were 2007 actually releasing in 2006 so falling out.
For example I bought this The Pipettes album We Are The Pipettes which I thought hit the classic girl group band sound very well indeed. Check out Your Kisses Are Wasted On Me for a sample.
I discovered the Vampire Beach Babes in the autumn and really liked Reckless Summer very much. Check out Tomb Mau Mau for a great example of their rocking first album.
I managed to find the old Heavy Metal this year, which has some real stinkers but some very nice old songs as well. My favorite is Devo's Working In A Coal Mine
A big find of the year for me was Blaze Foley who I was tipped on to and really love, a very gritty and honest country sound with no bull crap attached at all, the album I liked best from him was Live at the Austin Outhouse.
17 Ene 2007, 5:16 de TweedyzgirlI’m sure you’ve all been anxiously awaiting another pretentious list of which albums released this year were actually worthy of being listened to. And I’m sure you’re thrilled to hear the opinions of another blogger who knows little of music theory and even less of what it is to be a musician. So, if you’re still reading, that’s quite good for me, and I’m sure will boost my ego a bit.
If you’re wondering why it took me so long to get this darn list up, it’s because I had a blogging accident: I was writing directly into the window, then accidentally hit refresh…lost it all, so I got discouraged and didn’t feel like writing anymore. Note to self: Do all future writings in a word processing type program, they’re much more forgiving. Also, I had a friend in town who I had to entertain for a week.
Here comes my list, let me know what your thoughts are on what I have to say and share your lists and opinions, but, please, be civil. I know how heated these conversations can get, I have done my time in various music forums. …

27 Ago 2006, 6:22 de TweedyzgirlYes, you heard me right...according to Bloodshot Records, The Meat Purveyors are calling it quits. Bassist Cherilyn DiMond has decided that maybe it's time to quit the whole rock and roll life style and is getting married. They will be playing their last dates on the fall tour. Check out the Bloodshot website to see if they'll be coming to a town near you! I never got the chance to see them (or if I did, I didn't take it) and I really regret that, because their albums are great. They're so very punk, while really bringing in a bluegrass sound that makes for a great live show, I'm sure.
In other news: I saw Rhett Miller on Thursday, and I promise I'll write a lengthy review of that show. There is a lot to be said about it.
