After waking up at 11am this morning to a mimosa, The War on Drugs’ new album, ‘Lost in a Dream’, on vinyl at my New Year’s Eve co-pilots’ house AND after an evening of “VJ-ing” (video jockey-ing on youtube) AND wonderful music-oriented conversations, I decided it would be a good idea to dig out ALL of the records I’ve purchased at live shows here in Bozeman. It was an excellent reflection on how wonderful the music scene here really is. And, I think it is only going to get better. If you don’t think any good music comes to our lovely little town, think again! So far I’ve made it through listening to ‘Can’t Talk Medicine’ by Seattle-based group, Pickwick, a 2-song little guy by Florida boys, Roadkill Ghost Choir, ‘In Evening Air’ by the incredible, Baltimore-based group, Future Islands and just now started the Southern gentleman, Futurebirds’ album, ‘Baba Yaga.’ I picked a favorite track from each of the above albums. And, here is the full list of records from all the artists’ whose albums (on vinyl) I’ve purchased at shows in Bozeman (So, there are even more artists who have been here whose vinyl I don’t have yet):
Pickwick, Roadkill Ghost Choir, Future Islands, Futurebirds, Body Language, Blitzen Trapper, The Stone Foxes, Sea Wolf, Horse Feathers, Rubblebucket, Ages and Ages, Okkervil River, Ed Schrader’s Music Beat, Lonesome Shack, Matthew E. White, and EDJ (Eric D. Johnson).
