Hello everyone! How are y'all on this beautiful Tuesday?

Richard said...

Im fine. How are you?

Deanna said...

I am well. Recovering from severe sleep deprivation, but I'm good.

I just picked up My Life in the Bush of Ghosts. I like it a lot. I unfortunately can't say much about it just yet because I've only had the chance to listen to it once, in my office with the speakers fairly low.

I'm surprised youve gone this long without hearing it.

My introduction to that album (though I didnt know it at the time) came from Oliver Stone's use of it in Wall Street. Have you ever seen Wall Street? If not, you need to jump all over that masterpiece.

Liz bought some Brian Eno albums this weekend. Yeah we went out for national record store day.

Of course I've seen Wall Street! I didn't realize that was the soundtrack. I can't wait to listen to it again in more detail (if that makes sense). I'm trying to reserve a copy of the book that inspired the album from CPL, but their website is being uncooperative.

I forgot that it was NRSD and went to Reckless anyway. They had this blues LP by some guy named Washington Phillips that I've been wanting to pick up for ages but thought was out of print. Haven't had the chance to listen to it yet, but I will this week and report back. I read something about it online that made it sound really fascinating, and the guy working started gushing about it when he was ringing me up.

I bought all the mediocre-to-terrible Kinks albums made between 1978-1986

Deanna said...

Oh fun! I hope they didn't set you back much, regardless of how much I love Ray et al.

You know that conversation we had during which I said that I had no interest in buying records these days? Yeah, that changed pretty quick.

Richard said...

The Kinks albums were at most 3.99

I also got the new R.E.M. album and while its no fucking work of immortal genius, its miles better of anything else theyve done this century.
