    On a Broadway kick: just bought original cast albums of South Pacific and Guys and Dolls, and the Shirley/Jack Jones Brigadoon.

    Also digging Playbill's 5-disc compilation of Broadway standards.

    LK, it's been a long time since I listened to any Siouxsie. Now you've got me on a little binge. Thanks!

    Air, perhaps? Or Phoenix.

    Or Stereo Total for French/German.


    Can't forget NTM - Supreme

    People tend to lump her in one single category of Goth or something but that's wrong. Similar to the limited categorization of Sisters of Mercy, and such. Quality music should be interdisciplinary.

    As a child I got the 33-rpm vinyl from the movie version of South Pacific for Christmas just after our family saw the movie. The record sounds a "little" scratchy these days!

    The release of the audio CD version was fine for me as a replacement for the old vinyl.

    Then . . . I was spoiled by "South Pacific - The London Sessions" audio CD. Kiri Te Kanawa, Sara Vaughn, Jose Carreras, and Mandy Patinkin take the whole thing to a new level.

    Mitzi Gaynor and Rossano Brazzi just don't sound so good anymore.

    I agree. This is actually true of a lot of the bands that were later seen as foundational "Goth" bands, I think. Bauhaus, for example, who were much better than their Gothfather reputation would suggest.

    As a music fanatic, musician with an EP on the way, producer and DJ with a collection of well over a million songs, I don't really know how to approach this thread. A lot of really good taste displayed here, however. Hmm...what the hell, so here are the albums I've purchased this year (from this year, or albums from last year that were distributed to the press this year):

    Aloha: Some Echoes
    American Primitive Vol. II
    Band of Horses: Everything All the Time
    Belle and Sebastian: The Life Pursuit
    Belong: October Language
    The Black Swans: Sex Brain EP
    Boris: Pink
    Calexico: Garden Ruin
    Cat Power: The Greatest
    Chihei Hatakeyama: Minima Moralia
    David Thomas Broughton: The Complete Guide to Insufficiency
    Delta 5: Singles and Sessions 1979-1981
    Destroyer: Destroyer's Rubies
    Ghostface Killah: Fishscale
    The Go-Betweens: That Striped Sunlight Sound
    His Name Is Alive: Detrola
    Howe Gelb: 'Sno Angel Like You
    Islands: Return to the Sea
    Isolee: Western Store
    The Knife: Silent Shout
    Liars: Drum's Not Dead
    Mclusky: Mcluskyism
    NekoCase: Fox Confessor Brings the Flood
    The Pink Mountaintops: Axis of Evol
    The Pixies: "Hey" - Live Pixies
    Safety Scissors: Tainted Lunch
    Tapes 'n Tapes: The Loon
    Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice: Gipsy Freedom

    By the way, if anyone on this forum is from the D.C. area, I'm at the Black Cat every other night so if you're there feel free to say, "Hi". I'm the guy with the hair.

    I definitely lack the amount of piercings and tattoos to work at the Cat. I simply patronize the place often because it's comped so...why not? Are you going to the Islands show on Tuesday?

    Also: the new Aloha album is by far their best. It's much, much tighter and focused so they keep their inherent sound yet get rid of all the sloppiness. Band of Horses is probably one of my top 10 albums of the year thus far. It's epic arena emo in the vein of Arcade Fire. Imagine a Southern-fried Arcade Fire. And the singer actually sounds like Jimmy James from MMJ. Amazing album. Sorry to do the "sounds like" thing, but in my mind that's the easiest, most half-assed way to get a sound across in writing.

    ALSO: Jens Lekman is friggin' astounding (if you don't have his singles/B-sides collection, "Oh You're So Silent Jens", buy it now). And do you have the complete Wolfmother LP? I'm curious about their sound as I haven't heard anything yet.

    Are you kidding me??? Dude, thats awesome. I got a bunch of friends that listen to them and I must have picked it up at their houses. One of my friend's bands toured with Two Gallants and also Gris Gris (I believe) about a year ago during one part of their tour. They (Gris Gris) are playing a show in Milwaukee on the 23rd of April, I'm gonna try and go. I also heard from a girl that I met randomly (I was wearing a Two Gallants shirt at the time and she immediately recognized it) that Two G's are going to do a basement show in Milwaukee again sometime coming up. I think they did one a year or two ago in a friend's basement.
