Sept 4

I haven’t made any progress with regards to the “Funkmobile” project – haven’t even started any work at all, actually.  That’s alright – plenty of time for that one.

Some new stuff I’ve heard though.  Hawksley Workman came out with a new album last week.  I bought it on itunes, and I was pretty damned pleased.  It’s more of a rock/alternative album than “Between the Beautifuls”, which I guess explains why he’s got a second album out within a year of the last one.

Other things: I have a long list of music floating around in my head to download (or buy, I do have that $10).  So here’s the list from what I remember:

  • Blink 182 (anything I guess)
  • Sum 41 (select songs…we’ll see)
  • Rheostatics (or is it Reostatics?  I don’t know)
  • Two Hours Traffic – “Little Jabs”

So far, that’s it.

There’s an mp3 on the “Hero Hill” blog I want to listen to.  I forget why, but it will determine, I suppose, if I want to hear more.

Oh and I just remembered I need to get Red Jumpsuit Apparatus from Mike, and look into the latest Offspring album.

Sept 5

Is it a coincidence that after listening to Rae Spoon’s “Come On Forest Fire Burn The Disco Down” on Radio 3’s podcast yesterday, I’m reading a review on it today on Hero Hill?

It’s a pretty damn good song – and so were many of the tunes from R3’s Pride Podcast.  I’ll have to get a list of the tracks later.

I got a copy of the latest Offspring album, but I haven’t listened to it yet.  I’m more interested to find out about this other album I got:

“Americano: The Bluegrass Tribute to the Offspring”

I always love out-of-genre covers so I can’t wait to hear this one.  Add the fact that it’s The Offspring covered in Bluegrass and I think I found a winner.

Will post later tonight what I think of it (hint: it’s great).
