Out With The Old, In With The New

What does going home for the holidays mean? Well, of course, drinking and going to one of my favorite record stores, Criminal Records in the A-T-L.

Year end makes you wonder what releases that you missed along the way. I had my brother in tow, and armed with fragmented bits of recommendations from work, we made a run to Criminal. I was also thinking about some of the year-end lists, like Idolator's Jackin' Pop 2006 Survey. Like trying to cram in all of the movies before the Oscars, I needed to get current.

And what better excuse for being derelict of my ShuffleLog duties than to listen to some of the new gear.
  • Band of Horses, Everything All the Time -- I really like this one, and it's no surprise that "Funeral" is topping the 2006 lists. It's a terrific single, plenty haunting, and it stands out as a little more rocking than many of the other almost acoustic numbers. "The Great Salt Lake" is another epic.
  • Interpol, Turn On The Bright Lights -- My brother recommended this one, their first. I'd heard plenty of Interpol back in SF, most notably "Evil" from their second album. I dig this record, but it's too bad that I bought She Wants Revenge's eponymous record before this one, since it's too easy to draw comparisons between the two. Lots of Joy Division-esque brooding on both, although Interpol are a bit more melodic where She Wants Revenge can be more plodding and monotone.
  • NaS, Hip Hop Is Dead -- I'll admit that most of the current rap (not to be confused with hip hop) like 50 Cent, Ludacris, Jay-Z, etc. leaves me cold. And while the occasional catchy track emerges ("In Da Club"), typically I'll bypass it unless it's in a cool mashup. But NaS is definitely making a statement here, and it's a good one. Plenty of dropping "nigga", but you gotta give him props for berating current MCs, daring them to "name a Big Daddy Kane lyric", and having a track in which he vows to "Carry On Tradition".
  • At The Drive-In, Kaya EP -- I knew I had heard of these guys, since they released their last full-length record on the now-defunct Grand Royal label, which was started by the Beastie Boys. This short but sweet EP showcases some solid hardcore, and while I don't like their successor band (The Mars Volta), I can get into this EP.
  • Prince, 3121 -- Bought this for my mother, since we got her an iPod for Christmas. Gotta love that Prince still brings it with songs like "Black Sweat".
With that, I present the last ShuffleLog of 2006 (from a while back...it was scribbled on a piece of paper hastily as I got ready to go for a run, and it's been swimming around in my man-purse for a while). Enjoy!
