20 Jahre by Nena
Ever since I came across the 2003 video for the song "Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime", I have been listening to this collection of re-vised songs from German pop artist Nena. I am so hopelessly addicted. I definitely like her updated versions of her past hits especially her duet with Kim Wilde on "Anyplace, Anywhere, Anytime".
Definitive Collection: Nena by Nena
I bought this cd last weekend at Cheapo records because I wanted to hear the original versions of the songs I had heard off 20 Jahre. I love this collection too. It's pretty damn cheap too. I think people need to hear Nena's music. A novelty artist she was not. Too bad the US didn't give a damn about her other songs after "99 Luftballoons".
Beauty 2: Music That Touches the Soul
I have been really enjoying this collection of downtempo electronica, folk, and pop music. The music is a nice break from all the heavy stuff I listen to on a regular basis. I really dig the tracks by Joanna Stevens, Blue Stone, Chandeen, and Zoe Johnston.
Drop the Mask by XP8
I found a copy of the latest XP8 (and Shiv-r) albums in the used cd bins last weekend (and of course I had to buy both of them) at Cheapo. Nice, aggressive industrial music. If Combichrist originated in Italy, this is how they would sound.
Hold My Hand by Shiv-R
If you like Combichrist, you will definitely dig Shiv-R. The music is very reminiscent of Combichrist especially on the song "Happiness". I felt like I was listening to "Sent to Destroy" by Combichrist.
Nothing is Infiniteby Angelzoom
I have to admit Nothing is Infinite took a long time to grow on me. The melodies didn't really stood out with me like the previous Angelzoom album did. Nevertheless it is a pleasant pop album.
