    New Album Recommendations

    What new albums have you recently purchased (or downloaded, or burned) that you would recommend?

    Here are a few I recommend highly:

    Garden State Soundtrack
    Loved the movie. Love the soundtrack. Great selections from The Shins, Zero 7, Colin Hay, Frou Frou, Bonnie Somerville and Simon & Garfunkle. Its rare to have an album with so many artists and not one throw away song.

    Green Day: American Idiot
    Okay, so its not that new, and hardly obscure, but if you've only heard the singles, you should give the album a listen. Its kind of a punk rock opera.

    Sarah McLachlan: Afterglow Live
    Two disc album has a concert DVD and CD. Great selections from new and old materials, plus (on the DVD) a nice cover of the Beatles' "Blackbird."

    Sarah Harmer: All of Our Names
    I've mentioned her before, and she has become one of my favorite artists. She's a singer/songwriter with a great voice.

    What is everyone else listening to?

    Re: New Album Recommendations

    I have been listening to a lot of old stuff myself. I am in a heavy, loud mood lately. Good Charlotte, Sublime, Shaggy, Eminem, CAKE, The Violent Femmes, and Linkin Park are getting a lot of play time by me.

    Newer releases (that are not very new) that I am listening to include:

    The Presidents of the United States - Love Everybody - not sure yet, but I love their old stuff.

    Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers - Bulletproof Heart - I have seen these guys play live three times last year and I love their stage presence. They are funny and upbeat. The songs on the cd seem a lot more melancholy than they are live. I just stopped by their website and they have another cd released this week. I should go pick that up. Some of the members of the Clarks had some input on the cd.

    Good Charlotte - The Chronicles of Life and Death - again love the old stuff, not sure just yet about this cd.

    Maroon5 - 1.22.03 Acoustic - I really like this. Good vocals and guitar.

    I tried to get into the new cd from Green Day and after a few listens I pulled it. It's just not pulling me in.

    The soundtrack from Garden State probably is a good pick up. That movie reminds me of Pulp Fiction. It's just plain weird and jumpy and I think I would need to watch it a few times before I really got it.

    I did pick up Sarah Harmer's All of our names last year and it is a good listen.

    If you like electronica/techno....the grab Global Underground 27 Miami- Danny Howells...The first disk is superb...I've also been listening to Nick Drakes - Pink Moon an oldie but fantastic none the less.

    Good call on the Garden State CD. Been enjoying that for months now. Even inspired me to buy the Shins.

    Some albums I've recently purchased/downloaded that I would recommend...

    -Sin City soundtrack (if you're into scores and movie music)
    -Ben Folds' "Songs for Silverman"
    -Family Guy Live in Las Vegas
    -Black Eyed Peas' "Elephunk"
    -I Am Sam soundtrack

    I just bought the new DMB but I'm half and half on it, so I'm not sure I'd recommend it just yet. Maybe a couple tracks, but there's some stuff I just can't get into. Sad.

    -I Am Sam soundtrack
    Gotta love "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" by Eddie Vedder. That song reminds me when I'm over at my grandmother's (Titans/Cubs fan) house for the holidays.

    My recommendations:

    "Out of Exile" - Audioslave - Listened to a few of the songs and I love what I hear.

    "We're A Happy Family" - Various Artists - Awesome Ramones tribute CD.

    "Mezmerize" - System of a Down - If you like their unique sound, you'll like this CD. You'll either love it or hate it.

    Just picked up the new Ben Folds and am starting to get into it.


    I also ordered Aimee Mann's latest on Amazon and should get it soon.

    Although we still have to finalize our CD, you can check out a song at our band's website -

    http://www.cavinmusic.com

    There is one MP3 that would give you some idea of what we sound like.

    I will let everyone know when we finalize the CD.

    We are grouped in the 'Explosive Melodic Rock' category
