July 2009 CD Binge

The latest batch of CDs I’ve bought to bolster the back catalogue:

colouritinThe Maccabees – Colour It In

A fantastically fun album and a brilliant debut album. Far too many point-to-the-sky-and-sing tracks to mention.

wallofarmsThe Maccabees – Wall of Arms

The posh boys from Brighton’s follow up album to Colour It In. Deeper, darker, moodier, and with brass! Took a little longer to get into, but a real grower, and Seventeen Hands is incredibly moving.

inflammablematerialStiff Little Fingers – Inflammable Material

I first discovered this album as an LP in my dad’s record collection. Brilliant graphics. Amazingly raw and energetic Irish punk. And Here We Are Nowhere weighs in at less than 59 seconds!

lovethecupSongs and Daughters – Love The Cup

The first EP from this extremely talented four piece. Their Celtic roots really shine through into the music and give the album that bit of edge.

therepulsionboxSons and Daughters – The Repulsion Box

The full length follow up to Love The Cup, this albums is non-stop foot stompingly good. Roll those Rs and snarl.

trojanrocksteadyVarious Artists – Trojan Rocksteady Boxset

I first discovered rocksteady through a Shy FX Essential Mix which cleverly mixed Ba Ba Boom by The Jamaicans into a DnB track that sampled the horns from the song. After that there was no turning back. The Spotify album isn’t quite the same as the triple CD box set I picked up for a fiver though (We7 has it!).
