I haven't done one of these posts since the end of October back at the previous blog. This one covers the end of March and beginning of April only, or else it would be quite long (sorry, Built to Spill).
Buffalo Tom/Let Me Come Over - I got this from eMusic quite a while back and only listened to it a few times. I decided to dig it up and give it a listen recently and promptly wondered what had taken me so long. This is the type of music I just eat up - melodic rock with lyrics you want to listen to. This album is from 1992, which also begs the question as to why I haven't been a fan for 20 years. Still, better late than never, right? Standout songs for me include "Taillights Fade," "Stymied," and "Frozen Lake."
Drive-By Truckers/Go-Go Boots - I had a ticket to go see the DBTs in early March, which was the early stages of their tour behind this record. However, I'd been very ill the weekend before and was still having issues with my back and leg and decided standing on concrete for hours wouldn't help my life. I was very disappointed but sometimes you have to choose health over rock. As for the album, the short answer is that I like it. The long answer will wait for me to get to it as I start reviewing the albums I've picked up this year.
Telekinesis/12 Desperate Straight Lines - This is the album I've been most obsessed with of late. I wanted to buy it when it came out and didn't but I think I've more than made up for it with my devotion. For a while, I was listening to it every morning and probably could still do that for another week without a problem. I'll have more of a review in the near future but for now, let me highly recommend it.
