Pixies – Doolittle
So this band, just a quaint little 4 piece, is playing at The Hollywood Palladium on November 5th. I WILL BE THERE!!!! I’m so excited, as this is my favorite Pixies album….so when you see the crying hysterical girl at the front of the stage – just wave hello – it’s me.
Jenny Lewis – Album: Acid Tongue
Over the years, I’ve grown to be especially fond of this woman. This last album of hers is really beautiful. It reminds me of the folk music I used to listen to when I was a kid.
The whole album is solid but my favorite tracks are:
“The Next Messiah”– which clocks in at 8minutes, 45seconds – and normally I would say this is way too long for one song, but it’s really fantastic.
“Acid Tongue”- the title track is a great song as well. I especially love that Chris Robinson sings back up vocals on both of the above tracks and anytime I even faintly hear that mans voice I’m happy.
Also, “Carpetbaggers” is so much fun – AND – Elvis Costello duets on this track with her. Have I mentioned I love him as well?
Definitely listen to this album…I love it and so does my daughter who is 2 – she claps at the end of her “favorite” songs.
White Rabbits – It’s Frightening.
I love this album. A friend of mine gave it to me – and I’m so glad they did.
The opening track is fantastic – “Percussion Gun”. It sort of set the mood for the entire album which is really really good. I also really like, Midnight and I.
This band is playing at The El Rey on November 2nd…and I will most definitely be there!!!
David Gray – Draw the Line
This is one of my favorite singers and this is his new album. I could tell you about how much I love this album but I won’t bore you. I don’t know anyone else that’s quite as fond of him as I am. I love all of the songs on it – but especially- “Harder”
It’s a good album and he is playing at The Orpheum on November 9th. I’ve never seen him live so I purchased one ticket. It’s the first show that I’m going to by myself and I think it’s going to be a blast. It’ll be like it’s just him and I! Xox.
Eels – Hombre Lobo: 12 Songs of Despair
Ok ok…everyone loves this band. I love this band. This album has already been talked about – but I like it so much – it’s in my purse right now. You see I keep carting it from my car, to my house, to my work…it’s that good. Every last song!!!
