This song makes the Silversun Pickups CD seem like that "3 Dollar bill" record by Limp Bizkit, with the George Michael cover and everything...

An excellent EP of Finnish shoegaze.

Will fully back up Killsaly on this one! Especially the song "Gleaming Endless Ocean".

Yes, the new Metric album is really good.  Every song is great.

Streaming several new releases with full length track legally via lala.com

Starting with the new Depeche Mode which sounds killer, followed by Tinted Windows and Pet Shop Boys.  The new DM is priced @ 3.99 for 256kbs VBR MP3s at lala.com

   unfortunately, though, it has only fueled my borderline stalker obsession with Emily Haines....

Tinted Windows

file this one under "but the little girls understand"

Tinted Windows a pop/rock supergroup of sorts with Taylor Hanson, Bun E. Carlos, Adam Schlesinger and Jame Iha. I sure was skeptical about these guys when the EW reviewer name dropped both Big Star and the Knack when writing about their debut album, so decided to be sure to check them out.

While the record isn't going to change the world or end up on any best of 2009 lists, I suspect this band will be hot ticket if they hit the club and will  turn some heads if they appear on any second stages of summer festivals.  It's one of the best commercial power pop records I've heard in an awhile, in that it has substance behind that slick production.  Contains a  couple really great singles and better than average album tracks, which are growing on me with repeated listens. 

Overall the sound is best described as Cheap Trick crossed with The Knack.


oh and I'm going through a bit of a The Turtles phase at the moment, perfect springtime music..

New York Dolls and Johnny Thunders/Heartbreakers

I know I'm way late to the party on this, but holy sh*t, I had no idea.  Came across a New York Dolls concert from the Matrix in SF from 1973 or 74 on YouTube and it blew me away.  I had thought they were 'kitsch' and Johnny Thunders was just a junkie cartoon character . . . I should have known better . . . they were pure rock and roll and Thunders was incredible . . .

Same.  I'm enjoying it.  It's definitely the "New Morning" of his modern day phase.

Good record, nothing that jumps out as "classic," but just an easy record to listen to beginning to end.

I also see it growing on me by the time summer hits.
