Hanging in there...

You all know how I felt yesterday, and of course I’m grateful how all of you felt terribly sorry for me (I hope!). Helping me surviving the rough times yesterday was the terrific Self Storage Compilation Volume 1, which has been available for purchase since November 3rd. 16 amazing shoegaze tracks jammed onto one CD and it will be yours for either 14 or 16 dollars (including shipping) depending on your location. And with the current USD rate in mind (though it has vastly improved recently) that is still quite a bargain (me thinks).
+ The SoundscapesHere’s When

In case you haven’t visited my facebook profile recently, I simply have to draw your attention to the newly released Kent 1991-2008 box set. It includes a total of 133 tracks on 10 CD’s covering the entire history of the band from the very beginning when they were called Jones & Giftet and right up ‘till last year’s Tillbaka Till Samtiden. This box belongs in every serious record collection and the price of 47 Euros is ridiculously low.
+ Vy från ett luftslott (Punks Jump Up Remix)

Needless to say it has been quite an inspiration listening my way through those many songs and just for the fun of it I’ve compiled this list of my 10 favorite Kent tracks. And of course it would be absolutely awesome, if you’d post yours in the comments as well!
1. 747
2. VinterNoll2
3. Utan Dina Andetag
4. Spökstad
5. Beskyddaren
6. Mannen i den Vita Hatten
7. Istället För Ljud
8. Dom Andra
9. Nålens Öga
10. 400 Slag

The box is really worth every cent! Now I only have to listen to all the new-to-me songs, and then maybe I'll be able to compile my top-10... although a few favourites are already set! ;)

Hope you'll find the time to post it some day. Will be interesting to read, I'm sure!
