Music I’ve bought in March.
After a very slow February, I pulled myself together and got buyin’. And not just new old music:
But mostly. And, hey, a new single from Team Dresch!
Music I’ve bought in January.
Which, indeed, turns out to be very good.
Well, OK, I also bought ‘ard Corr by Well ‘ard from Discogs, because how can you not with a name like that.
Music I’ve bought in November.
I’ve been buying all the usual nonsense this month, but I’ve particularly been delving into the output of Broklyn Beats (yes, one O), a label that was active in the early noughts. They concentrated on what some people at the time called “brokebeat”: Harsh, annoying music you can’t dance to. For instance, here’s Toecutter:
Man, that album is the most annoying thing I’ve heard ever! And I’ve heard all the annoying albums! I challenge anybody to program while listening to this album! Kudos!
But I didn’t know that Broklyn Beats also did this charming packaging stuff:
See? It’s a mesh thing stapled into a kind of sleeve.
And inside, there is what looks like a hand-screen-printed paper sleeve. (And a CD-R.)
I love it.
