Agents Of Good Roots – Straight Around

16 06 2011

Listened: Monday May 2

Straight Around reminds me of a more sax heavy Dave Matthews Band. This is another album my friend Jim loaned me, therefore the excessive sexy sax doesn’t surprise me, since Jim is a saxophonist.

It’s catchy and enjoyable, but I’d say it’s not really my taste. Jim’s introduced me to a bunch of life-changing albums, but this wasn’t one of them!

Belle & Sebastian – Storytelling

16 06 2011

Listened: Monday May 2

Storytelling is from that weird Belle and Sebastian period after Fold Your Hands Child when Isobel Campbell was leaving the band and no one knew if there would even be a Belle and Sebastian anymore. Needless to say, it didn’t really help allay fears, considering it’s quite instrumental in nature, due to being a soundtrack (to a movie I’ve never seen), and not a very cohesive “Belle and Sebastian album”.

Until the project I really hadn’t listened to it much. I enjoyed it, but I doubt it’ll be in regular rotation.
