January downloads

Here follows a list of albums to download (for my own use, really):

The Good, The Bad and The Queen – Self-titled. I wasn’t very impressed with their previous three-song release – Herculean – but I’m generally a fan of Damon Albarn’s work. They’re worth a second shot.

Norah Jones – Not too Late
. I’m not a huge fan of Jones, but downloading is freeness and therefore I’m in. She’s good to read to, I’ve found.

The Hold Steady – Boys and Girls in America
. I’m never sure how to describe the Hold Steady apart from to note that they’re good and honest rock and roll. And I suppose that’s as good a reason as any to give their third album a good listen.

The View – Hats of to the Buskers. The last thing the Pod needs, frankly, is another Young Generic Indie Guitar Band, but I can’t resist the temptation (again, see freeness). I think I’ve heard two tracks from this crowd on Jo – I Love Everyone and Think Every Single Song in the World is Magic and Brilliant – Wiley’s Radio 1 show and I didn’t like either of them, but at least I’ll know for sure when I’ve listened to the album in full. The ‘Libertines-inspired’ comment in Q isn’t the best recommendation they could have, though, I’m sure.

That’s it for now, I think. It’s a slow month, I dare say.

I skivved off the office today. I really do have the best ‘job’ in the world. I worked at home, though. Honest, guv!

  1. You don’t download?! But how do you get your music?!

    (Seriously, I haven’t bought a CD in years – I just refuse to! In my defence, I do download from some sites where you have to pay a small fee.)
