This album has received a bit of criticism for straying from their normal sound, but it’s always good for bands to try new things, right?  I enjoyed this album a bit more than originally expected, but I can safely say it isn’t their best.  In fact, if it wasn’t for me previously being a fan of theirs, it probably wouldn’t have even appeared during 2009 week.  If you like the preview (their latest single) you’ll likely enjoy this album.  But, if you don’t enjoy the preview, fret not.  Their songs “Signs of Life” and “Paper Moon” might be more up your alley.  The version I have in the link is the “Deluxe Edition” with two extra songs.

THIS ALBUM IS IN 320kbps. IT’S A CERTIFIED WINNER IN MY BOOK!

Now, I know what you’re thinking.  Andrew W.K. does PIANO now?  But, the truth is, he’s always done piano.  Ever since he was a kid.  He’s classically trained, and actually really good.  You can tell even by listening to the keyboard parts in his party songs.  So go ahead and give this a download.

Apparently we’re doing 2009 week, neat.

“In Celebration” is one of the best albums I’ve heard all year (3rd best as a matter of fact). Leader Zach Burba pumps out some of the most unique pop songs I’ve ever heard. Don’t believe me? Every song sounds different. There’s a much better, full review here.

I’ve decided to do a week full of my favorite albums of 2009, and where better to start than this dance masterpiece by Dan Deacon?  Bromst is a celebration.  It’s fun, it’s dancey, it’s never boring… exactly what you want out of an electronic album.   Teddy says this is his personal album of the year, and it’s definitely one of mine.  If he ever comes to your town, I suggest you see him.  His shows are apparently really zany.  Unfortunately, I wouldn’t know… he hasn’t come near me for awhile.  Make sure you keep a look out this week for all my other favorite albums of 2009 so far.

Can you Believe the Kid was only 16 when he released this album?   His voice is so… adult.  This is one of my favorite Blues albums, and definitely worth a listen if you get the chance or if you just like blues.

Eugene is my favorite comedian.  He’s probably the funniest person I’ve ever heard of.  I have nothing really to say about him other than that if you like to laugh, you will love Eugene’s stand up.  And he’s got a new CD coming out on October 6th.  If he is ever in a town near you, I suggest you go out and see him.  Support him.  Buy his book.  He’s hilarious.

Klark Kent – Kollected Works

Punk, New Wave

Klark Kent is the pseudonym used by Stewart Copeland, the drummer and founding member of The Police,  throughout the 80’s that he released 4 record under.  These four records were 10 inches and green in color and on the back, the label stated that they were originally 12 inches and black, but as soon as they came into contact with light, they would shrink and turn green.  Klark Kent is, essentially, the embodiment Stewart Copeland’s punkish side and sense of humor.  His music features many jokes and that good old-fashioned “You’re not my boss” attitude that was prevalent in 80’s punk.  This album is a collection of the singles and hits from his four vinyl records (that I’ll be picking up on eBay as soon as possible) all smashed into one amazing compilation album.  I highly recommend this album to anyone who is either a fan of The Police, Punk, or the Spyro the Dragon 1-3 soundtracks.  Yes… Copeland wrote the original Spyro soundtracks.  And if that doesn’t make someone awesome, then this Klark Kent album does.  Also… IF YOU DON’T LIKE MY HAIRCUT, YOU CAN SUCK MY SOCKS!

Watercolor Paintings – Open Your Mouth

Twee, Pop, Lo-Fi

http://www.myspace.com/watercolorpaintings

This is what we call “twee as fuck”. I mean look at that picture; how cute and cuddly is that? Watercolor Paintings is a brother-sister (mainly sister) duo that plays sweet songs on ukuleles, harps, and guitars. I mean really sweet songs. The kinda songs you listen to and think about how beautiful everything is. When I saw them here in Birmingham they had everyone sit on the floor while they played without microphones. People in other bands playing with them (and by other bands I mean iji!) sang along during their songs at certain parts. It was a very “have fun” show. They also told us that they had been on tour for 40 days and that’s, “like so many days on tour”. They are also really sweet people; it really was a pleasure to meet them both. I highly recommend this album for fans of twee, indie-pop, and music.

Let me tell you though, if you enjoy this album PLEASE BUY IT! W.P. is on a very tiny independent label, so much so you’ll have to e-mail them for details on how to order this album. But seriously, buy this, attend a show, just in some way support the band. I got to see them for $8 and only spent $5 on this album. Is it going to kill you to give up morning coffee and a pastry for this album? I think not.

Me posting an album? Crazy right? I’ve had this uploaded for awhile and just forgot about it. I guess we can celebrate Logos this way. Bradford did this small, two song session by way of total improv. These two songs are actually some of the best things he’s done (IMO). Worth a look if you’re a fan.
