2010-08-11 Eels

I just bought some more Eels CDs. Damn it. I didn’t want to give the music industry any more money because they are going to use it to harass customers in court and lobby our governments to give us crappy copyright law. Some of these albums were on sale and cheaper than on iTunes, though.

I guess that last year I really enjoyed Belle & Sebastian and Flogging Molly. Maybe I should listen in to some of Isobel Campbell’s projects since she left Belle & Sebastian.

This year seems to be the year of Eels and Cocorosie.

Update: Wow, on the subject of music. I listend to a lot of The Gaslight Anthem this spring when I got a copy of The '59 Sound from a friend (sharing is legal amongst close friends here in Switzerland). As I read the Wikipedia page, I discover that the record was produced by Ted Hutt – who turns out to be was the original guitar player and one of the founding members for Flogging Molly! What a cool link between two excellent bands. I should check out what else he’s up to!



I didn’t know Eels yet, but Cocorosie is great. To find similar music with a CC license, try http://www.jamendo.com/en/artist/eels
