    I liked the new Bjork a lot...but in 2004 I mostly listened to albums that came out years ago so...

    Kasabian - Kasabian
    Modest Mouse - Good New For People Who Love Bad News
    Nick Cave - Lyre Of Orpheus/Abbatoir Blues
    The Liars - They Were Wrong, So we Drowned
    Hoopy Frood - Psychonaut

    Those spring immediately to mind, I'm sure there are a fair few others I'm missing. Or haven't heard.

    But yeah, I haven't actually bought that many cd's this year which were actually released in 04.

    Whooaaaa, just had a thought.


    Theo Travis Quartet's new Earth To Ether album is fucking amazing. Theo is a badass sax/flutist and his guys play some very upbeat and modern jazz. Kinda psychedelic at times. Theo played sax for Gong on their 00 Aussie tour I think...

    I saw them live earlier this year and they were just amazing. Their drummer is literally the best I have ever seen live, I was just dissapointed his solos didn't make it onto the album. Theres a couple of weak songs, but the good ones more than make up for it.

    Buy the CD from theotravis.com

    Yes, the liars !

    Interpol's second album made me nostalgic of the first one. Antics seems to be very "average" to me...I should give it another try thought.

    I'm allowed my fair share of guilty pleasures.
    Besides, you have a Monkees album.
