I picked up a fair amount of music this past weekend through the magic of Amazon.com and various other websites. Most of it was stuff that I had already been planning on getting, such as the Owl City album, as well as a number tracks from Jonsi, and the “Sita Sings The Blues” mini-soundtrack (I say “mini” because it consists of 4 songs). Additionally, I also managed to find the soundtrack to (what else?) the video game “Zelda: The Ocarina of Time.” In the case of the latter, I’m going to have to crank up some of it doing the next D&D session. That Forest Temple theme is actually quite spiffy for adventuring.
Because of the reloading of my library on iTunes (which is always a crap shoot as to whether or not it’s going to crash), it’s added various other tracks to the “Recently Added” playlist. This has turned out to be a good side effect, since it means that the Young Fresh Fellows album has been placed in the queue, and since I never really had a chance to listen to them much when I bought them (just a couple months ago), it’s like having another new album on tap.
This week, there’s also a good chance that I’ll be getting the new LCD Soundsystem album, although I realized that I really should get some of his earlier stuff, as well. But hey, I still have some leftover change on that yonder gift card, so might as well use it.
