Got a little mad money for the birthday, and was going to order the usual vices (books & music) from Amazon.  Have some extra in the budget for another CD or two...

I am definitely out of the loop as far as recent music goes.  Black Keys is probably my best recent find.  Most music from the past 10 years or so I find wimpy, whiny, and derivative.  So, disillusion me of these assumptions, if you can.

Or, if you can think of some old nugget that I may have overlooked and need to add to the collection, make your case here.  Two such I had considered were Jim Carroll Band's Catholic Boy, which I never bought on vinyl, and Suicide's first album, which is packaged with extra tracks.

I scoff at my lack of income!  I need goodies!!!

Does Finny ever just take in some simple beer drinkin' music?

A Canadian musician (don't Google the US guy) that we listened to quite a bit back in the day.

I still have his first 3 albums...um, cassettes. The live footage on YT is pretty poor quality, but you get the idea. I've seen him live many years ago, before he cleaned up. Dude would roll his eyes back in his head and play all night.

Only if it's some wussy micro-brew (a toffee-like finish with a hint of lavender!) that I can drink out of a teacup with pinky extended. 

Thanks, Otis, I'll check this when I get home and can access.

The last one I purchased was For All I Care by The Bad Plus.  I've enjoyed it tremendously.  They're an acoustic three piece (bass, piano, drums) and they use a vocalist on about half the tracks of this album, but normally are instrumental (I think).  They'll throw down some wacked tempo changes, time sigs, etc.  This particular album features covers of many different bands from The Bee Gees (How Deep Is Your Love) to Nirvana (Lithium) to Pink Floyd (Comfortably Numb).  They don't so much cover the songs as rip the flesh down to the skeleton then rebuild all the juicy parts.  There's a passage in Comfortably Numb where the piano is not where you think it should be, it's building a pressure you can feel in your chest before it becomes a crescendo into the chorus, just awesome.  Somewhat reminiscent of swirly-instrumental part of A Day in the Life.

I'd wager that people who only listen to the radio would hate the album.
