MEDIA BLACKOUT #439.42!
– Undoing Ruin (Victory) :: It’s always darkest before the yawn.
Catlow – Kiss The World (Boompa) :: Chandler’s
restless lunatic daughter from The Big Sleep records a chirpy album of perky power pop rubber-room refrains.
Kid Icarus – The Metal West (Summersteps)
:: Track one has a jing-janglin’ juju stutter-step. Then they vary the menu with a buffet of smart ’60s stylings
that range from acoustics and harp to rude unruly fuzztone.
Led Zeppelin – Presence (Swan Song) :: It’s easy to forget how unrelentingly
brutal these four guys could be when they were really angry. Bonus points for singing with a broken leg.
Ringo Starr – Choose Love (KOCH) :: Hey,
if half of your old band was gone, you’d start singing heartfelt spiritual songs like “Oh My
& Roger Daltry – Who’s Left (Decca) :: Then again, maybe you wouldn’t.
The Moggs – The
White Belt Is Not Enough (Absolutely Kosher) :: He’s a git picker. She’s a skin whacker. Together they beat
the Kills at their own minimalist game.
– The Fury Of Our Maker’s Hand (Roadrunner) :: Where have you gone, Phil Anselmo? A nation turns its
bleeding ears to you.
– To Be The Man (WWE Books) :: Woo! Woo! Woo!
SIZZLING PLATTER OF THE WEEK: Jennifer Foster – Fit For Mars (Kanada Kid) ::
Jen has the vivacious looks, the vocal hooks, and an engaging witty songwriting style that’ll playfully sucker-punch
you when you least expect it and have you down on the floor looking up with a new-found respect before you even know what
hit you. You can trust me when I tell you she’s that good.
Be seeing you!
