Well this week had me worried till YLT showed up, kicked into a fine threesome, and you can't go wrong with "boys will be boys will be boy-oy-oys...." and some untramelled Eno to close.

Free, thanks for the too kind words. If I ever need a publicist, you're my man.

Generik, 2 Handsome Family cuts here is probably a typical week is my guess....

Pete Krebs, "Dressed to the Nines," Loose: New Sounds of the Old West, 2
The Avett Brothers, "Living of Love," Emotionalism
The Wild, "Oh, Alex," The Wild EP
Hem, "Eveningland," Eveningland
Sonic Youth, "Rats," Rather Ripped,
Hannah (From the Redlands Palomino), "Closing Time," Country Girl:New Sounds of the Old West, 5
Captain Beefheart and the Magic Man, "Hair Pie, Bake 1," Trout Mask Replica
Hem, "Sailor," Rabbit Songs
Delusions, "Quiet Time in My Room," Keeping Up Appearances

Beatles, "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill," The White Album

Weird list, but not bad. "Sailor" is beautiful and maybe the Beatles is appropriate given the release of Squeaky and John Waters Leslie Van Houten piece. Plus a Sonic Youth album named after a record store where I bought a lot of vinyl hits a nostalgia button. Yeah, George's blog is brain porn.

Mercury Rev, "Opus 40" Deserter’s Songs
Bill Frisell, "Strange Meeting" Hear Music, Vol. 7, Waking
Chuck Prophet, "Would You Love Me?" Soap and Water
Rilo Kiley, "Always" Take Offs and Landings
Ed Harcourt, "Let Love Not Weigh Me Down" Strangers
Eef Barzelay, "Take Me" Lose Big
Chet Baker, "It's Always You" My Funny Valentine
NoahJohn, "Infirmary" Had a Burning
Akron/Family, "Afford" Akron/Family
Vetiver, "The Porter" To Find Me Gone

Bonus: Giant Sand, "Wayfaring Stranger/Fly Me to the Moon" Cash Covered

Yeah, I know, suspicious that Akron/Family shows up, but it's legit. Best show I've seen in months, too. If anybody gets a chance to catch them, do not fucking miss it. They drive the kids crazy, which is fun to watch.

Wouldn't you know I haven't read George's blog in a week?
