    Default $50 iTunes Gift Card

    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

    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?

    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.
    9/10 Swans @ Roxy, 9/18 Neutral Milk Hotel & Daniel Johnston @ Hollywood Bowl, 9/19 Tokimonsta @ El Rey, 9/30 Cibo Matto @ the Roxy, 10/3-4 Desert Stars, 10/9 Zola Jesus @ El Rey, 10/16 Massive Attack @ Greek Theater, 10/22-25 CMJ, 10/26 Asobi Seksu & Slowdive @ Royale

    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.
    8/31 - Sleep - Troubadour (?)
    9/05 - The Rentals - Fonda (?)
    9/11 - Swans - Roxy
    9/13 - Owen Pallett - El Rey (?)
    9/17 - Buzzcocks - Fonda (?)

    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.
