thought i would start a thread for everyone to nominate some decent music to buy

i am currently alternating between james blunt, back to bedlam, and the kaiser chiefs, employment

i would be listening to jack johnson, between the dreams, but the cd got damaged

anyone else?

Coldplay - X and Y is good but it took a few listens before it really grew on me.

Another vote from me for James Blunt & his haunting voice.

In my car cd changer:

Coldplay (but only really like a copule of the tracks)
Jose Gonzalez (singer and guitarist, lovely)
Laura Cantrell (country singer)
The Cinematic Orchestra (old but fab)
the Magic Numbers

Umm....Magic Numbers is v summery,The Futureheads,Sons and daughters are an excellent Scottish band-different to most stuff around and pretty loud,The Reindeer Section-sort of Scottish Indie supergroup(!!),Garbage's new album,and failing that there's always Charlotte Church's new album?!

Dh likes the White Stripes at the mo...
I am into lush pop (I suspect you might not be Lou...), so my choice of listening is

- The Isis Project
- St Etienne's new one Turnpike House, plus their ancient Greatest Hits compo Too Young to Die
- Manhattan Transfer Pastiche (only for confirmed fag-hags)
- Pink Martini Hang on Little Tomato

If I feel like wigging out a little I stick on The Arcade Fire, or step back in time with This

Emod Mon 11-Jul-05 12:19:22

ooh I want that ST Etienne one

lou33 Mon 11-Jul-05 12:21:03

manhattan transfer, talk about blast from the past!

Marina Mon 11-Jul-05 12:23:57

It has been remastered and it sounds stunning God I am so old, listen to me.
I did like those young whippersnappers The Killers on Live8 as well!

James Blunt rocks my boat at the moment, the most beautiful album I haver heard in ages. on constant replay in our house. Dd does a great version of High!

monkeytrousers Sun 17-Jul-05 11:12:05

monkeytrousers Sun 17-Jul-05 11:12:21

Oh crap!

snafu Sun 17-Jul-05 11:38:58

Ooh, I was thinking of getting that, mt. Think I might have little look on Amazon. Want magic numbers, st etienne and the kirsty maccoll best of.

Am currently listening to old Elliot Smith album which is perfect summer music.

snafu Sun 17-Jul-05 11:42:38

omg, have just seen there's a new Eric Matthews album out! If you haven't heard him before, I really recommend taking a listen.

TinyGang Sun 17-Jul-05 11:54:57

Monkeytrousers - Ooh Brian Eno - I like his old stuff (My Life in the Bush of Ghosts). Is the new album along those lines?

Love your name btw - whenever I see it I always think of how Vic says it!
