RECORDS I'VE BOUGHT IN THE LAST SIX MONTHS

  1. ILITCH/10 SUICIDES (1980)
    Crazy, unclassifiable French album with the song "Waiting For Mabelle" that I listen to on repeat
  2. JACKSON C. FRANK (1965 Columbia OG)
    One of the best albums ever recorded and one of the saddest and most brutal career trajectories I've ever encountered//en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackson_C._Frank
  3. BRIGITTE FONTAINE/COMME A LA RADIO (1969)
    Great French weirdness
  4. PEP LAGUARDA/BROSSA D'AHIR (1977)
    Insanely mellow and beautiful folk from the coast of Majorca. The song "Cims I Abismes" rules every single summer of mine for 7 years and counting//youtu.be/CflvcS-ZiTI
  5. CAN/TAGO MAGO (1971 UA German OG)
    German Can vinyl ain't easy to come by.
  6. DAVID KAUFFMAN & ERIC CABOOR/SONGS FROM SUICIDE BRIDGE (1984)
    An epic private-press bummer.
  7. SID SELVIDGE/COLD OF THE MORNING (1974)
    RIP Sid. Maybe the best version of Shake Sugaree ever recorded (here called I've Got a Secret). Also, amazing album cover by the great photographer William Eggleston.
  8. MAYO THOMPSON/CORKY'S DEBT TO HIS FATHER (1970)
    Probably in top five of my favorite albums of all time. Mayo is the brain of The Red Krayola, the deeply experimental TX 60s psych band. But here he is in singer-songwriter mode, and the results are totally unique and unforgettable. Super pervy when you get into the lyrics, but the whole thing has an off kilter charm that's undeniable. "Black Legs" and "Dear Betty Baby" are so great.
  9. THIS HEAT/DECEIT (1981)
    The best music ever recorded in an abandoned meat locker. Nothing else really like it.
  10. JEAN-CLAUDE VANNIER/BRASSENS (1974)
    Lesser known but excellent Vannier
  11. BYARD LANCASTER/PERSONAL TESTIMONY (1980)
    The late jazz great plays every single instrument and makes every single sound himself on this incredible album.
