Manic Street Preachers – Resistance is Futile
Yesterday was supposed to be an exciting day as a package with the new Manic Street Preachers album “Resistance Is Futile” was scheduled to arrive from Amazon. It didn’t turn up however, even though I use Amazon Prime which guarantees delivery the next day. A phone call to the courier company today revealed that the courier dude had taken the package to the next house, and the neighbours accepted it, signed for it, and even opened the box! Well, the opened box finally made it’s way here today and I have in front of me the nice new album from the Manics. I have not listened to it it, but have have heard the first single online, and it is typically excellent.
The cover photo was taken in 1881 by a German photographer by the name of Baron Raimund von Stillfried, and was of one of the last samurai.
Peshay – Miles From Home
While I was on my Drum ‘n Bass high last week I discovered this album and thought it would be worth a try. So, I bought it used on Amazon and it turned out to be a most astute purchase. It reminds me partly of DJ Food as well as Roni Size. Peshay is a British drum ‘n’ bass producer who has four albums out, with “Miles From Home” being his first, released in 1998. I shall collect more of his releases.
Burial – Young Death/Nightmarket
As I did a few blogs back, I decided to beef up my post a bit by buying something on Bandcamp, so I chose another Burial release. This one has two songs and is a bargain at only two pounds. A short listen to both tracks reveals yet another atmospheric and soothing Burial release.
