1st Quarter in Review

Because I'm a silly girl, I'm going to say that there is a vague possibility that I won't buy any more music before the end of this month.  Which, honestly is dumb because there are 10 days and another weekend before the end of March and I have every intention of buying The Afghan Whigs' Black Love in the very near future.  But hey, let's just go with it, shall we?  Under the pretense that I'm not buying anything else until April, here's a quick recap of the music I have acquired since the beginning of the year.  There have also been a few random songs and of course the singles for New Music Monday, but these are just the full albums.

In no particular order, as usual:
Plants and Animals - The End of That
Boy Wonder - Break the Spell, Etc. - EP
Betty Goo - Gooicide
Betty Goo - Superchthonic
The Black Keys - The Big Come Up
The Black Keys - Thickfreakness
The Black Keys - El Camino
Micah - Micah - EP
Buddy Guy & Junior Wells - Hoodoo Man Blues
Dr. Dog - Be the Void
Dr. Dog - Shame, Shame (vinyl)
Regina Spektor - Begin to Hope
Simon & Garfunkel - Bridge Over Troubled Water
Simon & Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (vinyl)
Paula Kelley - Nothing/Everything
Paula Kelley - The Trouble with Success or How You Fit Into the World
Ryan Schmidt - White Horse - EP
Ryan Schmidt - Burning Bitter Years - EP
Matt Nathanson - Still Waiting for Spring
Matt Nathanson - When Everything Meant Everything
Green River Ordinance - Out of My Hands
Jesse Macht - Love is Another Drug
Carbon Leaf - Indian Summer
Ingrid Michaelson - Human Again
The Commuters - Rescue
Madi Diaz - Far From Things That We Know - EP
Rachel Platten - Be Here
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik
Concrete Blonde - Recollection
George Michael - Faith
Huey Lewis and the News - Sports (vinyl)

So yeah, now that it's all typed out here, it seems like an awful lot.  But, to justify it, I did get a few of them used for just a couple bucks (and, admittedly, I did get one of them online for probably way too much but it's worth it to me) and several are EPs that don't cost much.  Eh, look, I've got a problem, okay? Don't judge me!


  1. saw your list of records that you own and wanted , I am looking for a copy of we threw our hearts in the fire by madi diaz and saw that it was in your collection and was hoping you might consider a trade . If you are interested send me a list of records you would consider for trade . thanks

    1. I'm sorry, but my copy is signed to me, so I wouldn't want to part with it. Have you tried checking with her directly? She might have extras or could at least tell you if finding one is possible. She is pretty accessible via Twitter. Best of luck in your search!!
