Yeah, but can David Blaine go six months without buying any music?

I am an audiophile of upper-middle proportions. But I haven’t bought any new music since arriving in Geneva. It was part of a self-imposed budgetary constraint while we got our dollars-to-francs bearings, but in retrospect six months without a new CD seems like some kind of sadistic performance art.

This morning I had my audio breakfast. The first two albums I purchased were Beck’s Modern Guilt and Coldplay’s Prospekt’s March. They sound gooood.

Here were the runners up. As they're on dock for the next purchase, I'd love to hear your input and other suggestions...

Explosions in the Sky - Those Who Tell The Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Dig, Lazarus, Dig

Steven Wright – I Still Have A Pony

Of Montreal – Skeletal Lamping

Prospect Mali – Something Deeper

Fleet Foxes

"Of Montreal"...not sure I'm cool enough to listen to this band, although I'm trying. I'm also pretty sure they are a group of sexual deviants, but I suppose most bands are. I say give it a try. The packaging itself is pretty interesting.

Check out The Republic Tigers, and Roguewave. I think you may enjoy them. They're on itunes, myspace etc.

Black Holes and Revelations from Muse, the red album from Weezer, or Z from My Morning Jacket. None of them are all that new, but if you haven't heard the full albums of any of these then you should.
