Never heard of Aesop Rock before today. The music isn't my style, but the video is pretty cool. But, to answer this thread's question, I'm listening to Aesop Rock right now.

yeah, definitely not my style, either - but a friend of my was talking about his vocabulary, rhyme-ability, etc - and told me to check him out.

so I did.

Mountain Goats-All Hail West Texas and All Eternals Deck. Also the Black Angels but can't remember which album I picked up recently. Passover was the only one I owned previously and this one is on par.

I bought an old refurbished 70s Grundig when I bought my house and have been building up a record collection since. Have to really like a band to commit to a record haha

that's awesome. I read somewhere once that a disturbingly large percentage of people who purchase vinyl never actually listen to the records.

scratch

I probably have 300-400 pieces of vinyl and I did a brief review once and there might only be about 10-20 albums I've never listened to - and most of those were one dollar bargain bin purchases that I picked up mainly for the sweet 70's era cover art.

Yeah cheap old albums I'm not as picky but new ones are expensive. So far I'm probably hovering around 20 but I've listened to them all at least twice and like putting them on when doing stuff around the house. Of Montreal, the National, the Smiths, Velvet Underground, St. Vincent, a few others. It's a beautiful console though. Was looking for a while and it's not easy to find one similar to it.

The new record by The National is pretty sweet, though I'm still partial to Boxer and even High Violet.

lots of good bands you listed, though. We have a few records by The Smiths that largely belong to my wife - she's definitely got a softer spot for the British stuff like The Smiths, New Order, Joy Division, etc.

Bob I hear vinyl doesn’t even sound that different than any other random audio hook ups. What are your thoughts? Ive tried to justify a vinyl set up but is it just the collecting and hobby of it or is it actually a better sound or what? Enlighten me.

depends on what you're interested in, time and money you want to invest, etc.

If you are willing to spend a bit of money on quality components, the sound (to me) can be incredible. It has this extra layer of warmth and depth to it. Listening to vinyl might not be as convenient as digital delivery systems but that's not the kind of thing that concerns me. I doubt I'll be on my death bed and wish I had all of that time back that I spent putting on an album.

then there are the intangible aspects that can be important to some people. I dig holding the record, especially the 180 gram versions that are popular in some circles these days. I love the big, dense liner notes, the cover artwork, etc.

so there are a lot of factors to consider.

one cool thing about that tune (other than the tune itself) is that Craig recorded it the day Prince died so he included the reference to 1999 prior to Led Zeppelin 3.

After the ND/Miami game I hopped in bed, threw in the earbuds, and fired up Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago. To me that's the perfect album for the month of November.

definitely has a good November vibe to it.

This tune by Matthew Ryan has a dark, dreary November sound, too..
