Lily Allen, It’s Not Me, It’s You (left)
Lily Allen going all out for pop super stardom on this one. (Is she sitting inside the famous LOVE “L”?)
Dan Auerbach, Keep It Hid
For someone who (I’m pretty sure) writes the songs in a 2-piece band I was kind of expecting something less Black Keys-y. I’m not complaining, I’m just wondering why this was solo project material–that’s all. Let the debate begin…
Beastie Boys, Paul’s Boutique (20th Anniversary Reissue)
Apparently the bass in this re-mastered version will shatter glass. I bought an extra storm window just in case.
Ben Folds, Way To Normal: Stems and Seeds
A loud disc and a softer-sounding disc that will sound better on good audio equipment. Just buy the damn double-disc release and it will all make sense.
Hot Panda, Volcano…Bloody Volcano!
Don’t be a bad indie kid and confuse Hot Panda with Panda Bear.
india.arie, Testimony, Vol. 2: Love & Politics
Not only is it Volume 2, but there are also two inia.aries on the album cover!
