ok. So, on Saturday i went and celebrated World Record Store Day. I went to Polyester Music in the city – the new store. Great place to shop definately. Anyway, so as part of their day, they had ‘celebs’ come in and work behind the counter and slow down proceedings because they didn’t know how to open a till. Well, actually, by the time I got there (around 5pm), they were pretty fast. Although it did take Lawrence Leung a while for him to find my CD’s. Hehe…I love his show – the Fight Cube ep was on last week and I really should’ve said that I loved his stuff but I didn’t. I’m always like that around celebs. Anyway, Alan Brough, was also there auctioning massive posters off which was good too. 20% of the proceeds went to the Cancer Council so it was a worthy cause. Anyway, Polyester put on a great job. Check those guys out here.
The two CD’s i bought were Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s Beware, and Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion. Both are great in their own right and you can expect a review of the Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy album up soon (uni is getting the better of me lately).
But, something to leave you guys with.
YOU MUST CHECK OUT AND SIGN UP TO THE AVALANCHES WEBSITE. If you love the Since I Left You album, then, once you’ve signed up to their website (it’s all free and you don’t get spammed) you have to download the ‘track’ Gimix. It’s pretty large though, but it is a reworking of the whole album with a bit of Beatles, Dylan and Lauper thrown into the mix. Freakin Excellent.
Anyway, new album review coming up soon guys.
K. That’ll do the ramble for now.
