Cheap Music: Soundgarden, Crystal Castles and Daft Punk

Amazon's got 50 albums for $3.99 and here are the 3 you should buy. Not bad for under $10 for all 3. King Animal was one of my album of the week picks, and Crystal Castle's III could easily be added when I start it up again. As for Daft Punk, well, let's just say Tron Legacy wouldn't have been nearly as awesome without their help.

Bloc Party - Intimacy Remixed

Intimacy Remixed
Atlantic Records

Intimacy is my favorite Bloc Party album to date. I really dig the more electronic route they took along with a bit more "dance" beats if you will.  The remix album is fantastically solid with some great reinterpretations that are a lot of fun. As of this writing, Amazon's got it on sale for six bucks. Highlight tracks:

  • Ares (Villains Remix)
  • Biko (Mogwai Remix)
  • One Month Off (Filthy Dukes Remix)

I love the entire album, and  if I still had my MINI, I can easily see myself enjoying this blazing over the mountain passes in the PNW.
