@Baron-Harkonnen posted an interesting list of new and old that he he had been listening to this year.
We both share an obsession for buying new music – cant speak for him but my habits are quite possibly an addiction.
I thought about his post and was wondering if we really need all this new.
In the last 24 hours I have played these old ones:
Drive by Truckers – Go Go Boots
Grandaddy – Last place
Nick Lowe – Quiet please The best of Nick Lowe (both discs)
I enjoyed listening to all of them very much. But then I thought:
Drive by Truckers have released my favourite album this year and have another new one in December.
Grandaddy are releasing a reworking of their best album The Sophtware slump and an expanded reissue of that album.
Nick Lowe is doing great stuff with Los Straitjackets and I hope to see an album soon.
So yes enjoy the old stuff but welcome the new would be my motto.
