This Is Our Music is the third and final album by Galaxie 500, released in 1990 on the record label Rough Trade. It was recorded at Noise in New York City. The album title was lifted from the 1960 album of the same name by jazz legend Ornette Coleman. The Brian Jonestown Massacre, in turn, referenced the title with their 2003 release And This Is Our Music.
