Kitty had a bit of

Kitty had a bit of an Aussie fest last night. Okay, not a “bit” of one. A major, full-on, Aussie OD. Two CDs arrived from Chaos Music, and I went on a little shoppie with Janie (who’s blog will soon be getting an overhaul courtesy of yours truly). The result:

David Bridie, Act of Free Choice

I’ve only listened once, but boy has he ever gone mellow. Apparently it was the other members of Not Drowning, Waving that had the pep in their step. Nonetheless, the sound is most excellent and eclectic. Love this guy.

My love affair with Neil Finn continues.

The sound on this disk is a bit retro. I can’t think of anyone who produces more consistently excellent music. He never lets me down. This one will be on repeat for a few days.

Powderfinger’s Oddysey Number Five

These guys are a new obsession. Huge in Australia and just catching on here–I missed them when they played Portland a month ago. I have a feeling I won’t be able to afford them when they come back. A solid band with great writing and good production. I’m looking forward to exploring their catalog. And finally…

Yes, I bought it.

Be a snob if you like, but I loved Gladiator, and want to watch it a few more times.
