If It's Tuesday, It Must Be Street Date - 08/18/09





BRENDAN BENSON- MY OLD, FAMILIAR FRIEND


4th release from pop-rocking, Raconteur Benson. See yesterday's post for details please.





THE CULT- LOVE (EXPANDED)


I don't think it's a stretch to call this record a classic. Not much prior or since feels as convincing as The Cult's hard-rocking goth on this 1985 release, now expanded to 2 CDs to include all b-sides, as well as every remix of the hit "She Sells Sanctuary." "YAA-YUH!" (That's my Ian Astbury impersonation.)





COLIN HAY- AMERICAN SUNSHINE


The man is still at work. (sorry) Colin Hay releases his 10th solo LP since Men At Work disbanded and its lazy, third rate, singer-songwriter, James Taylor outtakes vibe left me cold.






JOE HENRY- BLOOD FROM STARS


Hot on the heels of producing two fantastic records for Allen Toussaint & Ramblin' Jack Elliott respectively, singer-songwriter and class act, Joe Henry drops his best solo record to date.





DELBERT MCLINTON- ACQUIRED TASTE


First record of new material in 4 years, from the legendary Texas roots and R&B singer.






MUTEMATH- ARMISTICE

"Anointed by Alternative Press as ''the #1 band you need to see live before you die,'' eclectic and inspired electro-alt MUTEMATH scored in late 2008 with ''Spotlight'' (#1 Billboard Hot Singles Sales for two weeks) on the soundtrack album to Twilight. The track now also appears on the group's second album, Armistice. Produced by Dennis Herring (Modest Mouse, Elvis Costello, The Hives). " I couldn't have said it better myself..or at all actually. The band sounds like Coldplay after a week off the medication.




JAY REATARD- WATCH ME FALL


"Highly anticipated new album from this indie artist. 'Snarky, snarling, and soaring, this kind of derangement rarely sounds so sweet." Kinda like The Undertones meets The Buzzcocks. Good stuff!

It's scary but I already have every single track on the Richard Thompson box set. Am I a geek or what?

ROTP(lumber)

Whoever you are, it shows, at least as Mr. Thompson is concerned, great taste.

Finally got a chance to listen to the entire Brendan Benson album it's the best pop album that I've heard in many a moon. With the exception of 'Feel Like Taking You Home', which sticks out like a sore thumb (but I'm being petty), this is brilliant from start to finish. Another best album of the year, within a week of hearing Kristina Train for the first time. I'm happy!
