What I'm Listening To July 23 - 29, 2010

1. Joanna Newsom - Have One On Me (Drag City)

2. Blitzen Trapper - Destroyers of the Void (Sub Pop)

3. Everest - On Approach (Vapor Records)

4. Deep Sleep Ops - C25 (Electric Fur Records)

5. Broken Bells - Broken Bells (Columbia Records)

6. Pinback - Autumn of the Seraphs (Touch and Go Records)

7. J. Tillman - Year in the Kingdom (Western Vinyl)

8. The New Pornographers - Together ( Matador)

9. Pinback presents The Rob and Zach Show - ascii E.P. (self release)

10. Menomena - Mines (Barsuk)

The Joanna Newsom record insinuated itself into my music repertoire with a vengeance in the days leading up to her show at The Orpheum. It gets better with each listening. It's so ambitious and succeeds on so many levels, I think it's already my favorite of her albums. Other than that, I'm kind of stuck on the same music as the last few weeks with the exception of Menomena coming back to life with a new album, which I reviewed the other day over at Radio Free Silver Lake.

Expect a shake up next week as the new Arcade Fire is coming out.

The new Everest album, On Approach, is solid. Their show at the Bootleg last night with Mini Mansions was solid. They managed to breathe even more life into their songs, which is what a live show is all about.
