If It's Tuesday, It Must Be Street Date: 10/12/10
My apologies to all of you who look forward to this Tuesday service, but this is one of those weeks where it's going to take more than this list of new releases to motivate me.
Things are miserable enough, I don't dare listen to a new record of gloom from Antony & The Johnsons, or the nails on a blackboard twee of Belle & Sebastian.
While I did enjoy Badly Drawn Boy's debut and his excellent soundtrack to the film "About A Boy," I haven't been on his bus for ages.
Sufjan Stevens? Feel free to dig in, but I'm still not over Stevens' tribute to the
Am I the only one not following Darius Rucker's country career?
If I had to pick two releases that I'm interested in giving some time, they would be the Chip Taylor & Carrie Rodriguez collection, which also includes 4 new tracks, and The Orb with David Gilmour. I do love Gilmour's guitar playing, and this record has the potential to sound a bit like "Meddle."
But here's what's out today, anyway.
ANTONY & THE JOHNSONS- SWANLIGHTS
BADLY DRAWN BOY- IT'S WHAT I'M THINKING: PHOTOGRAPHING SNOWFLAKES
BELLE & SEBASTIAN- WRITE ABOUT LOVE
BLUE FLOYD- LIVE AT BIRCH HILL
OLD 97S- GRAND THEATRE (VOLUME ONE)
THE ORB FEATURING DAVID GILMOUR- METALLIC SPHERES
DARIUS RUCKER- CHARLESTON SC, 1966
SUFJAN STEVENS- AGE OF ADZ
CHIP TAYLOR & CARRIE RODRIGUEZ- THE NEW BYE & BYE
