More new CDs have arrived. You may be pleased to learn that YA CDs are free to reserve and issue on a YA library card.
» Oracular Spectactular – MGMT. Very popular and a favourite with the critics. This album comes with ‘enhanced content’, excitingly.
» Awesome Feeling II – Various. This is a compilation from Real Groove magazine, capturing the ’Sound of Young New Zealand 2008′.
» The Best of Radiohead – Radiohead. There are 29 songs on this double-CD, and all of them are awesome. It doesn’t have any songs from after 2005, however.
» TCG – The Cheetah Girls. Initially created by Disney for a couple of films.
» Finding Beauty in Negative Spaces – Seether. A South-African post-grunge band. ‘All negative space with very little beauty,’ according to one critic.
» The Release Party – Dilated Peoples. This is actually a DVD, documenting an independent hip hop group over a 10-year period. It comes with a bonus CD. Great for fans of Dilated Peoples.
» Workers Leaving the Factory – The Actualities. If you like Arcade Fire and Coldplay you will like this (second) album, Sam tells me. The Actualities are a Wellington band.
