Buy this music, enjoy it and be happy

This was supposed to occur with more regularity but it hasn't happened since the January Music Review.... My bad. Here are some new and old music suggestions covering the February to May 2008 period.

10 new songs/albums I recommend you check out if you haven't already:
  • Ready for the Floor - Hot Chip
  • Out of Time - Jason Collett
  • Rockferry - Duffy
  • Change of Destination - Monade
  • Blood's Too Rich (album) - Luke Doucet
  • Consolers of the Lonely (album) - The Raconteurs
  • We Throw Parties, You Throw Knives - Los Campesinos!
  • Tiger Phone Card - Dengue Fever
  • A-Punk - Vampire Weekend
  • Cheap And Cheerful - The Kills

10 older songs rediscovered:

  • To Get Me Through The Good Times - Echobelly
  • Staying Out For The Summer - Dodgy
  • A Design For Life - Manic Street Preachers
  • Ladykillers - Lush
  • I'm Sorry - Hothouse Flowers
  • Cold Brains - Beck
  • After the Gold Rush - Thom Yorke
  • Bad Luck - Social Distortion
  • Let's Shake - Teenage Head
  • Living After Midnight - Judas Priest
[Sidenote: Britpop is back... at least on my iPod as you may have surmised from the above]

[Sidenote #2: I heard a demo of the new Oasis song - I Want To Live In A Dream In My Record Machine - on the Strombo Show yesterday and was pleasantly surprised. It was pretty trippy and, perhaps, most surprisingly, good. Apparently they will have a new album out this Fall.]
