Not that you’re keeping track, but my musical purchases have, in fact, remained in balance the last few months. As I’ve pointed out (originally here), my music purchases tend to be two types of music: Jazz songbirds and heavy metal. Over the last year and a half, this balance has been remarkably consistent. Sometimes, the balance shifts if I hear more metal or more new jazz, but it always seems to return to equilibrium. At the end of March, I last provided an update on my music purchases.
Well, I’ve bought essentially ten albums since then (with some asterisks).
Here’s what I’ve gotten:
- Natsumi Kiyoura Hologram; technically, she might be pop.
- Jessy J Tequila Moon
- Pier Angeli Italia Con Pier Angeli; as you probably know, I bought this on vinyl.
- Alma Micic Introducing Alma
- Gloria Reuben Perchance To Dream
- Three Days Grace Outsider
- Shinedown Attention Attention
- Leap Frog Studios’ Leo Moracchioli Metal Covers; I bought about fifty of his tracks, which is, what, four or five albums’ worth (he does offer CD compilations, but I made my own).
Forget the buying, you might say. How’s the balance in listening?
Well, to be honest, the metal songs by Leo get the heaviest rotation. They’re among the oldest selections on the list, and I burned them to CDs and listen to them in the car, so they get a lot of play then. I only just got the Jessy J album this weekend, and the Natsumi Kiyoura CD has yet to arrive. So it’s mostly Leo.
