I went on a little music buying spree this past week. I spent way too much and now really shouldn’t spend any more until next pay period… but here is what i got:
Pillar – The Reckoning
I really like Pillar. I’ve been listening to them since before they really became popular… since several CD’s ago. I’ve been wanting this album for awhile now, but since I refuse to pay more than $10 for a CD, I waited until the price dropped. Well, I found it on sale for $8 and bought it. I’ve listened to a few tracks and it seems like a solid album.
Third Day – Third Day
I had this album a long time ago and lent it to Carlos and never got it back. This was before the iTunes days and so there was no backup of the music. It was just gone. I have most of the other Third Day albums, and they are a consistently great band. And, from what I can remember, this album was also great. It was $4 in a discount section of the store since it’s over 10 years old and so I also bought this one. Many great songs on here.
Fusebox – Lost in Worship
Again, found this one in the discount section (can you tell I don’t like to pay a lot for music?) for $6. I’ve never heard of Fusebox, so this was a total impromptu impulse buy. I listened to a few tracks so far and they sound decent. I’m not to sure how good I’d classify them yet, but I don’t think I’d classify them as bad. I have to listen to this one a bit more to be sure, though.
Melody Gardot – Worrisome Heart
I bought this album solely on the recommendation of iJustine. She mentioned that Meoldy was a great indie jazz artist from Philly and that everyone should check out her music. I have become quite a fan of the jazz as of late, and so I quickly went to Melody’s website and listened to some sample tracks and was instantly hooked. She sounds amazing. So relaxing and peaceful her music is. I haven’t yet received the album in the mail. I had to have it snail mail delivered since there’s no iTunes availability for it yet 😦 , but I really can’t wait for it to get here. On a side note, I find that I am much more willing to pay fill price for a CD (as I did for this one) for an indie artist as compared to mainstream ones. I really love the indie arts and encourage everyone to support these talented people.
Anthony Rodriguez & Poetology
These guys came to our church this past week to perform during The Connexion. They’re a latin jazz band and they did awesome. I went out to the lobby after church and quickly bought a copy of their CD. It’s pretty solid. No words. Just music, and I really enjoy it. Check them out too.
So that’s it. That’s what I bought this week. It brings my iTunes library to a grand total of:
3728 Songs (12-ays 13-hours 37-mins 30-sec | 7.69Gb)
33 Movies (03-hours 13-mins 24-sec | 2.01Gb)
44 TV Shows (01-day 07-hours 50-mins 32-sec | 20.32Gb)
447 Podcasts (12-days 16-hours 59-mins 45-sec | 15.03Gb
10 Audiobooks (21-hours 03-mins 25-sec | 289.5Mb)
Wow. That’s a lot of media. And that is all for now. Peace be with you.
