More summer listenings

New York has so many great, cheap CD stores. Here's what I've purchased so far:

The Album Leaf, "In a Safe Place"

Sigur Ros meets Postal Service. The perfect soundtrack to accompany a lone walk though the woods at dusk.

Antony & the Johnsons, "You Are My Sister" EP

Antony has one of the most hauntingly soulful voices around. I want to give this man a hug. I think he needs it.

The Books, "Lost and Safe"

A century of recorded human voices oddly spliced together over guitar and trippy vocal effects. They played for free at the World Financial Center Wednesday. No room for me. Too many hipsters in this town.

Danielson, "Ships"

The latest and greatest from New Jersey's favorite pack of Indie Christian Hillbillies.

The Books put on a freaking amazing show in SLC this past March (maybe early April, I forget). Nothing like a Dutchman on cello. They had a really cool video collage projected on a screen behind them, correlating to each song. Plus, at the end they covered Cello Song by Nick Drake. If you ever get the chance again to see them, it's definitely worth elbowing a few hipsters out of the way... =)
