Happiness as Anarchy #224: Opshop CDs

While everyone else is listening on Spotify and iTunes these days, I still like the hardcopy CD, with its album art and tangible texture. It would seem that the quality of CDs on opshop shelves is increasing as people no longer listen to discs. Happy days for me! Yesterday, for the princely sum of $5, I added Hotel Costes #14 and Damien Rice’s ‘O’ to my car collection. And for the first time ever, I also saw a CD that I played on – army band from the late 1990s – but left it on the shelf.
