Back in Black - Amy Winehouse
I'm going to assume you got Amy Winehouse's Back to Black,
and not AC/DC's classic album of the other name. Either way, actually, good choice.
My last few have been:Phantom Planet, The Guest
. Just got it imported into iTunes this morning; haven't heard any of it yet.The Detroit Cobras, Mink Rat or Rabbit
and Life, Love and Leaving
. This is the first band that I've gotten into entirely because of it being played on Filmspotting.
I got Tied & True
right after hearing them on the show, and really liked it, so then I got these. My assistant is pretty impressed, btw—up till now he didn't know anyone (but himself) who had ever heard them. Always good when you can impress the 18-24 demographic.DeVotchKa, How It Ends
. Denver band that I had heard compared to Beirut. They pale in comparison, unfortunately.Peter Bjorn & John, Writer's Block
. Kept getting recommendations from all sides on this one, so finally got it. I've only really listened to a couple of songs, but I like what I've heard so far.Iron & Wine/Calexico, In the Reins
. I've been on a real Iron & Wine kick lately, and Calexico's another band I keep hearing recos for. I've hesitated on this one for a long time, though, because I don't normally like get-together albums. But AMG's recommendation was so positive, I had to try. I've only heard it once or twice, but I think I'm going to really like this one.
