January Music Purchase

Kate Bush – Director’s Cut Rework of some of Kate’s back catalogue, as she believes they should have been recorded.

King Creosote & Jon Hopkins - Diamond Mine Short but beautiful album that leaves you wanting more when you listen to it. Which is always a good thing.

Dakota Suite – This River Only Brings Poison One of my favourite bands that have been making beautiful music unnoticed for years. Last year they appeared to release a number of albums so a lot catching up for me to do.

The Big Dish – Swimmer I real gem from 1986 I loved this band and was lucky enough to catch them live earlier this month. Their first gig in 21 years.

Talk Talk – History Revisited This album was originally withdrawn at the assistance of the band who didn’t agree to its release. In the 80’s the 12’ single was at its most popular and this reflects the best of Talk Talk’s back catalogue remixed by guest DJ’s.

Explosions In The Sky – The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place and Take Care, Take Care, Take Care Only discovered this band as I wanted to go and see the support band on a recent live date. Texas instrumental band that fall into the post rock category. Very like Mogwai.

White Denim – D These guys released 2 albums last year both to critical acclaim.

My Morning Jacket – Circuital Another great album from last year, got a 2 CD edition for £5 in Fopp Glasgow the 1 CD version was £7!!

Joan As A Police Woman – The Deep Field Been meaning to get into this artist for a while a bargain a Fopp means I can now have a listen

Wilco – Kicking Television Live In Chicago Only Wilco album I don’t have and as it’s a double live album how could I not buy it. Great live band and great reviews means I’m really looking forward to this album.

Driver By Truckers – Go –Go Boots Always loved Drive By Truckers and it appears that they are becoming more and  more popular as years go by. 

Iron And Wine – Around The Well Double album of rarities and hard to find tracks by another band on the up. Classic chilled Americana is what you get.
