I bought the album for $5.

I liked it but the novelty wore off. I gave it to a friend who seemed very enamoured by it.

I like it for the drums and for her voice, and the chords/ song itself I don´t know the album but might look for the cover Sweetest mentioned.

Novelty? there´s nothing new no more. Creative development? Or new sounds for that matter, I turn to DnB or Electro. Mashing. Check out my man Vandal of the Digital Konfusion crew if you will.

Playing: DJ Vadim - Bluebirds. Very chill.

It's lounge covers of punk/new wave songs. That's still novelty.

talking about the sound or the concept?

If you think the concept is new, ok.. to me, it does not sound incredibly new and innovative (rather retro - the swing of the cymbals´rhythm creates a 60s jazzy mood which is also typical of the first acid jazz ninja tune records in 94), but then I don´t measure the quality of songs with a novelty meter.

I wasn't referring to its concept.

I'm saying it's gimmicky.

Agreed. And gimmicky is novelty? Hmh, considering the mashup craze.

In a way it is. Dread Zeppelin, for example. It's a gimmick, and the result is a humourous novelty record.

Ok -then Dub Side of the Moon by the Easy Star All Stars would fall into that category too.
