Albert Hammond Jr. – “¿Como Te Llama?”

During my math class a few days ago a friend let me listen to her iPod and the song “GfC” by Albert Hammond Jr. came up. Before that I had never heard of Albert Hammond Jr. but I really liked the song “GfC.”  My friend and I conversed about Hammond Jr. and she told me a little about him so I decided to check him out.  Apparently he was in “The Strokes,” which honestly I don’t listen to, but have never really heard anything bad about. I got a hold of his “¿Cómo Te Llama?” album that dropped mid 2008. And to much excitement I enjoyed it. It’s smooth. It’s Chill. It in itself is out of my “norm,” but with or without that, it’s still good music.

1.    Bargain Of A Century
2.    In My Room
3.    Lisa
4.    GfC
5.    The Boss Americana
6.    Rocket
7.    Victory At Monterey
8.    You Won’t Be Fooled By This
9.    Spooky Couch
10.    Borrowed Time
11.    G Up
12.    Miss Myrtle
13.    Feed Me Jack Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Peter Seller

Thao and the Get Down Stay Down – “We Brave Bee Stings and All”

The first time I heard a song by Thao and the Get Down Stay Down was near the beginning of September. I had watched the “Bag of Hammers” music video on a blog that a follow and I was surprised that I enjoyed that “awkward” song. I searched High and low for a whole album and for a while to no avail. But I finally got a chance to hear the complete album, and I was sold. I enjoyed their music. It’s cute. It’s catchy. It’s good music. Check it.

CYNE – “Pretty Dark Things”

Last year a friend of mine tipped me off to CYNE (pronounced “sign”; stands for “Cultivating Your New Experience”) and I listened to a few of their tracks of of their myspace. They where good, but I never really clicked back over to their site for a while. But then I caught wind that they had released an album, and being me, I had to give it a listen. Pretty Dark Things is a really good album. When I listened to this album I wondered why I had ever almost passed this group up. Check It.

Count Bass D – “Dwight Spitz”

I looked up and down for this album and I have finally found it. Dwight Spitz is renowned for being a classic album, and I am not disappointed. Count Bass D has been on rotation with me for a while, and getting a chance to listen to one of his earlier releases just added to the reason why I listen to his music. I also found what I believe to be his first major release, “Pre-Life Crisis,” that was dropped in 1995. Haven’t listened to that one yet, but it may be up on the page later. Check it.
