This week’s music purchases

Filed Under: New Releases

Yesterday I bought “Sleep Mountain” by The Kissaway Trail, “Shame Shame” by Dr. Dog, “Tango 3.0” by Gotan Project and “Travellers In Space And Time” by The Apples in Stereo.

All four are amazingly solid albums, from the retro-rock of Dr. Dog to the big orchestral sound of The Kissaway Trail to the shiny pop of The Apples in Stereo and the South American rhythms and hip-hop influences of Gotan Project.

All four are definitely worth picking up (The Apples in Stereo album is only $5 on Amie St right now).

I’m aiming to see An Horse and Kaki King at the Higher Ground showcase lounge tonight, and will hopefully have a wrapup to post in the next day or two…

    I am really psyched on the new Apples – for some reason a lot of their prev stuff just never got traction with me, but I’m all about this.

    Look forward to reading more!

    Thanks Erik! I agree – they were never someone I was able to get that into, but this album kicks ass. it’s like an Of Montreal record with a little extra sunshine and bubblegum thrown in.
