Tuesday Tunes - Record Store Day Finds
Hello everyone! I hope you are all all having a solid week so far. I haven't been on a search for any new music over the last few weeks because Justin Timberlake and Kid Cudi have been all my speakers have played lately. I did however get some good finds on Record Store Day. Thankfully, Mallory waited out in the cold with me for 2 hours to get some records that I desperately wanted. Here is a glimpse of what I got.
Manchester Orchestra/Grouplove/Frightened Rabbit split
This is easily my favorite thing I picked up over the weekend. This was #1 on my pick-up list, and I swear I told Mallory 5 times that I had to get this record to make the trip (and long, cold line) worth it. Of the two songs, I have to say the Manchester, Grouplove song "Make It To Me" is my favorite. There's a drop in the middle of the song that gets everyones attention and is really awesome. Plus, Grouplove and Manchester sharing vocals is a hard combination to beat.
Straylight Run - Prepare To Be Wrong
I remember the first time I heard "Big Shot" from this album. It was a 20 second clip that played as a commercial on Fuse (when they used to be a music channel). I remember thinking I had to find the complete song because it was unlike anything I had heard before, and definitely a stretch from what Straylight had done previously. I talked with one of my good friends on Saturday while listening to this record, and he had the same feeling the first time he heard it.
Walk The Moon - Tightrope Ep
This wasn't a record that I necessarily had to have. Mallory and I were going through all the records and I came across this and decided I should just go ahead and pick it up. I can't say it's my favorite thing I've bought, but I did find myself listening to it while I cooked dinner on Sunday. It did make the experience more enjoyable. Their music just makes you want to dance, and I think most people always enjoy that.
I also picked up two Steve Martin comedy records, and a Chuck Berry album. We celebrated RSD at Shake It Records in the Northside area of Cincinnat. Did you go out and find anything you were looking for? -Brian
