    So far Ourself Beside Me's epinonymous debut CD is the best new album of the year IMO.

    I think you can probably buy the CD at D22, as it is owned by their record company. Also, there are two CD stores on Chengfu Lu that probably carry it. BTW they have a show at D22 on April 30.

    @Timothy: I didn't really like the new Junior Boys record -- and I consider myself a big fan. (Too... lethargic.) But as Peter mentioned, I dig the Ourself Beside Me LP, as well as Hedgehog's "Blue Sky Dreaming," Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "It's Blitz," Royksopp's "Junior," Joyside's "Maybe Tonight," and the self-titled Fever Ray record.

    agree with you this Junior boys album is not the best work of them, BUT the Parallel Lines is AMAZING! i couldnt stop..put it on loop for like days...:P..Royksopp & the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are amazing too...

    @Timothy: "Parallel Lines" is a tough call: in comparison to Depeche Mode, it excells: it's good, and holds its own in mid-2009. But in comparison to "So This is Goodbye," it feels overly-long, lazy and dragged out.

    Love the new YYYs now. Took 6+ listenings, but I like it.
