I Hear a New World Vol.19

Image
The latest edition of I Hear a New World is available to listen to here, and to listen\download at http://ihearanewworld.podomatic.com/.

On this edition of I Hear a New World, I have deviated from the usual Stacks of Wax format to make way for some of the newer records that I have been listening to lately. My girlfriend and I have been operating with a single income for a couple years now since she was diagnosed with a systemic digestive disorder that has rendered her unable to work at all.  Since times have been hard, I haven't been able to purchase enough new vinyl to keep the podcasts interesting. Until there is a shift in my financial situation, I will be doing podcasts from albums that I have on my hard drive.

Choice Cuts Vol.5

It is once again time for me to reach back in the refrigerator for some "choice cuts". Each time, I will be featuring sizzling and succulent morsels that are grabbing my ear right now that range from funk to country, from afro-beat to garage rock, etc. Sometimes there will be a theme to these songs that ties them all together in a nice bow, but other times the songs featured will just be a musical hodgepodge of eclectic delights. Without further ado, lets see what "choice cuts" the vinyl butcher has prepared for us today.

Clearly this is a private press record that never got its due back in the day, but thanks to technology, Ebay and the advent of music blogs it has experienced a resurgence in popularity 35 years after it's release date.  With copies of this turning up on Popsike f…

My Bloody Valentine New Album- The Wait is Over (Sorta)

Image
I was a little late to the party, but apparently it was broadcast on the My Bloody Valentine Facebook and Twitter pages that they were releasing the new album on their website http://www.mybloodyvalentine.org/ later on today.  Shortly after the announcement was posted that the album was now "live", the servers for the website were instantly overloaded to the point that virtually no one has been able to access the site to purchase the new record. Many have taken to the approach of repetitively pressing F5 to refresh the page to no avail. I do know that the vinyl is limited edition, and is likely already out-of-print. You have to be really quick these days to catch limited edition release before they are gone.

The information I was able to get about the record is included in the picture below with the tracklist of the record provided from a random person on Facebook.
