November playlist

Joel Macdonald and Troy Selwood over at mac-bunno.tv (their blog) are two players with the Brisbane Lions and music is an important part of their slickly produced videos of the happenings at the football club, and off-field adventures.

Since portable music players were invented (remember those Sony cassette tape Walkmans?), music has been an important part of game preparation.

Anyway, Joel (jmac) put up a playlist for October of what is current on his iPod.

Similarly, here is my November playlist (of full albums) -

Glasvegas - Glasvegas
Okkervil River - The Stage Names
Okkervil River - The Stand Ins
Army Navy - Army Navy
Kaiser Chiefs - Off with their Heads
Nine Black Alps - Love/Hate
Snow Patrol - A Hundred Million Suns
What Made Milwaukee Famous - Trying Never to Catch Up
What Made Milwaukee Famous - What Doesn't Kill Us


I first wrote about Glasvegas on 19 January 2008. Their album will finally be released in Australia on 7 November.

I couldn't wait and ordered the CD+DVD from amazon.co.uk, which Kim brought back from her recent trip to the UK.

The album doesn't disappoint and was worth the very long wait.

Gritty, working class and raw, Glasvegas has a fresh sound that touches a nerve. If you like Hard-Fi, you'll love Glasvegas.
