I received the following CDs for Christmas this year:
- Sleater-Kinney: One Beat
- Sleater-Kinney: Sleater-Kinney (their debut)
- Velvet Acid Christ: The Art of Breaking Apart
I haven’t given them enough listens yet to post any reviews. I will say that the new VAC disc is very different, which I expected going in. It has more melody and has more organic instruments (e.g. acoustic guitar) mixed in with the electronics. There’s also a nice bonus track of Bryan Erickson and Todd Loomis discussing the album, which is a must-listen for any VAC fan and very cool.
