Was one of my gifts and I need help in choosing some new music.

I was kind of thinking maybe some Underworld and Orbital so I can get in on the action too.

Maybe I should wait for the lineup?

SUGGESTIONS!

well, whatever you don't get on iTunes you can easily get on the internet elsewhere.

But if you're interested in Orbital/Underworld, these are the albums I recommend:

Orbital - Brown Album (Orbital II)
Orbital - Live @ Glastonbury
Underworld - Dubnobasswithmyheadman
Underworld - Second Toughest in the Infants

Well I KNOW I can get anything and everything off the internet but I still have this card itching to be used.

Wait for the lineup!! Free research would be fun.

Try and find those like itunes exclusive tracks and get that kidn of stuff. You know bonus tracks you wouldnt be able to get on an album unless it was bought on itunes. Maybe you find things you didnt have before... Can your ipod do video? You could buy a couple of movies to put on there, at least its something to watch while on the plane to england.

What are you in the mood for, Sbess? Something upbeat and fun, or something a bit more ponderous and thoughtful?

Im not sure, a little of both? More than anything I was thinking something I would never normally get on my own. Im feeling adventurous!

Is the flips DSOTM any good?

The reviews I have read on the boards have been more positive than negative. I'm not a huge flips fan, but I enjoyed it. Check out the "tell me about 2009" thread for more opinions.

I second the exclusive bonus tracks and live sessions. Plus anything in my sig that you don't have, naturally.

Speaking of video, there are some Portishead videos from Coachella in the iTunes store.

Sell the card on ebay and put it towards your travel fund. Download some music for free. Win Win.

I agree about the iTunes-exclusive stuff, for example if you buy Muse's Black Holes and Revelations there's an iTunes only track that comes with it.

go with you instinct, get some Underworld

My personal favorite full album is Beaucoup Fish

But if you want a great sampler, both their live album Everything, Everything and their double disc best of (with rare tracks) 1992-2002 are very good starters

Trade the gift card for real cash to use to get yourself your own cardboard cut-out of Brandon Flowers...well if it were possible to do that.

This is what I'd do

Definitely. Also thinking about getting some Morrissey too lol

ok so...

1. Fever Ray
2. Orbital
3. Them Crooked Vultures?
4. Grace Jones?
5. What is Public Image Limited?

Holy shit would I ever not bother with the PiL or Grace Jones. Why are you paying for music anyway?

sbessiso

It was a gift.

Monklish

Why the fuck are you bothering with the Orbital either? I mean, putting aside for a second how much they blow, you have friends right here on this board who would gladly send you, like, every shitty fucking song they've ever done. Why use some of the gift card?

sbessiso
01-20-2010, 05:37 AM
Give me suggestions then! Thats why I started the thread

Monklish
01-20-2010, 05:40 AM
It seems like a silly question though because you can already download whatever you want for free. So on that note I'd say use the gift card for bands that you think really deserve the money, not shit you're not even sure you like.

Pick up the My Morning Jacket iTunes-exclusive live EP.

JSam67
01-20-2010, 05:40 AM
Don't you think Orbital is now just a waste of time? There's no way they're not conflicting with Yorke/Gorillaz, right?

I'll send you Fever Ray (and LCD's first album) anyway if you want.

And ill take Fever Ray, Josh!! I have LCD around here somewhere. I think people are saying Orbital will close the place out like Justice. Or maybe thats just wishful thinking on their part
