I forgot to write about some good CDs I recently bought ... actually I had almost no time to write this because of business trip and other events.

Mew - Frengers (2003)

Mew is strong recommendation from some of my friends. When I listened their music first, I said to my friends about similarity between Mew and Sigur Rós (and suchlike musicians). But now I feel taste like Alternative Rock such as Superchunk from their music. Their music is lyric, and also very strong (catchy) song indeed. I think that their music has various factors I like, for example hard drums, solid ( or sometimes fragile) guitar sound and charming singing voice. Actually I quite often listened their music.
Although I like all of this album, "Snow Brigade" is one of my favorites in this album.

Efterklang - Tripper (2004)

Beautiful electric sounds, whispering voices and pleasant melodies played at a leisurely pace. Their music is very calm and peaceful, but isn't boring at all. Especially I like "Step Aside". In addition, Efterklang and Mew both are from Denmark.

Aerial - Black Rain From The Bombing (2006)

Aerial is one of my favorite Post-Rock bands. According to Amazon, this album is their first album (altough this album includes only 4 tracks). Compared with their amazing second album The Sentinel, this album might be more aggressive. Especially their singing voice and guitar sound are different from The Sentinel. Sometimes it reminds me of Sonic Youth.

Death Cab for Cutie - We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes (2000)

Probably this is their third album and also pretty nice like their other albums. Each songs are very catchy. Especially I like "For What Reason" and "Lowell, MA" in this album.

Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson & Sigur Rós - Angels of the Universe (2003)

This is soundtrack for "Angels of The Universe" directed by Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson. This music is mainly consisted of calm and beautiful string sound. It reminds me of dawn and beautiful morning landscape. End of this album, songs by Sigur Rós add the painful and beautiful taste to this album.
