I’m always hesitant when it comes to clothes shopping and how much money I spend but with music there is absolutely no limit. So I decided it’d be a GREAT idea to do a two-day music shopping spree. Sunday I went out with Eric and hit up two HMVs to stock up on CDs and today I visited two record stores with Lauren, Luke’s Drug Mart and Heritage Posters and Music, and added to my small vinyl collection.
And I decided, hey, why not blog about my purchases.
1) Against Me! - Transgender Dysphoria Blues
Actually one of the best releases of 2014. Laura Jane Grace is the BIGGEST BABE.
2) The Pretty Reckless - Going To Hell
I saw TPR back in October and don't judge Taylor Momsen just because she was on Gossip Girl, she has some really impressive pipes.
3) Lana Del Rey - Ultraviolence
Lana Del Rey is every hipster's favourite artist and one of mine too.
4) Pup - Pup
If you haven't heard of this Canadian punk band, you need to check them out. Rolling Stone included them in their Breakout Rock Acts of 2014.
5) Against Me! - Unconditional Love
Another Against Me! vinyl, this time a 7" picture disk with an unreleased song, "500 Years".
6) Candy Hearts - All The Ways You Let Me Down
Candy Hearts is the cutest band on Earth.
7) Arctic Monkeys - AM
I'm seeing this band at X-Fest in August and this album is pure sex.
8) Demi Lovato - Demi
I'm seeing Demi in October and it's definitely an album I'm probably going to play over and over and over again.
9) The Mowgli's - Waiting For The Dawn
The Mowgli's is also playing X-Fest and go check them out, you'll fall in love instantly.
10) The Used - Imaginary Enemies
I'm seeing The Used for the first time in September and I don't think my heart will be able to handle it.
11) Panic! At The Disco - Live in Chicago
I got this as a two-for-one deal. I still think one of the biggest tragedies in music is the Panic! split so I got this to cry over and wish it was 2008 again.
