Well, my trip to New York City was a nice success. Since I got into the city at about 4:45 or so, I had plenty of time to burn before the Godspeed You Black Emperor! show at the Bowery Ballroom. I stopped by Other Music, right across from the Tower Records, and plonked down a goodly amount of money for:
- Art Zoyd - Symphonie / Musique / Archives I [2CD comp]
- Koenjihyakkei - Hundred Sights of Koenji
- Tortoise - TNT
I’m always impressed by the stock at that store. They have an unbelievable amount of Area, some Arti & Mestieri, lots of Tatsuya Yoshida stuff, lots of Lars Hollmer and Samla Mammas Manna stuff, Magma, Univers Zero, all that good stuff. It’s an avant-progger’s dream, though the prices are pretty high.
The show itself was pretty good, as I detailed (well, to some extent, anyway) in my review. Since I got back into New Haven at about, oh, 3:45 in the morning, I’m just staying up all night… hence my writing this.
