I know that things haven't exactly been jumping on the blog lately, but I have been facing multiple challenges over the past two months that have prevented me from posting. I swear to you it's not because I'm basking in the sunlight every day, because our summer in Oregon hasn't been anything to write home about so far.
Since I have been purchasing a lot more vinyl than CD's recently, I figured now would be the perfect time to do another Stacks of Wax podcast to share my latest treasures. Among my recent purchases are the double vinyl set Light: On the South Side, Castle Face Group Flex ( with five flexi discs built into a fully playable spiral bound book), Thurston Moore- Built For Lovin' (Limited edition) and Hush Arbors- Alive (2 album live set- limited to 1000). The only one of these that I can't fully stand behind is Thurston Moore- Built For Lovin, though it may grow on me with further listens.
The latest edition of I Hear a New World is available to download here, and at http://ihearanewworld.podomatic.com/.
This episode of Stacks of Wax runs the gamut from psychedelic garage rock to trance-inducing Ethiopian soul. Some of the bands showcased on this podcast include Thee Oh Sees, The Fresh and Onlys, Bobby Rush, Getactchew Mekurya and Stark Reality.
I hope that you enjoy this episode of Stacks of Wax, and I would love to hear what you think about it.
