This week, a lot of the news has been All Hillary, All The Time, but still I have some other interesting tidbits to report. Let’s get started:
This week, a break in format: Rather than talk about the music I already own, let’s dedicate some space to newer music upon which I can’t wait to lay my greedy paws.
Let’s change up Record Machine a little this week and talk about three albums I don’t have on vinyl, though they are all available in that format.
Though talking about my vinyl collection will most often skew towards older albums, the format has regained some of its popularity. I love being able to buy unusual versions of singles released by my favorite musicians, and this Noel Gallagher/UNKLE remix is outstanding.
2011 became the year when so many of my favorites decided to have new releases, and it became a very happy listening time. In some ways, it’s difficult to say which song from the following fifteen is my favorite, but once you reach the end, it will be obvious to anyone who has followed my music writing. Still, play all these songs and enjoy. I hope you love them.
Yes, I met Noel Gallagher. It was surprisingly easy, not entirely premeditated, and out of all the questions I have ever wanted to ask him, what happened? I asked a silly one that’s been stuck in my brain since 2007.
