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!!!
This is the last time I’ll say this. I’m so glad Summer is over.
Ok, I’m done, I promise.
Well, maybe just once more…
YAY!!!!!! Summer is over!!!!!!
Ok, now I’m really done. Really. Pinky swear. All done.
I’m not sure if Fall will be any better, as when I went to check my e-mail inbox I had 666 unread emails (yeah I know, and this email account isn’t even the account that gets spammed, newsletters, nor most of the Facebook/Myspace alerts).
On a brighter note, here is some wisdom that was subliminally imparted upon me this morning via a song playing on KCRW that I thought I’d enlighten you with (I don’t know the song name and won’t look it up, as I actually didn’t really enjoy the song all that much), “the road doesn’t move, you’re the one that moves.” All thanks to Jason Bentley and his efforts in making my morning eclectic.
Alright, September’s 2:05pm list…here we go.
The Who – ” So Sad About Us”
I actually can’t decide if I like this original or The Jam’s version better. I think I’m going to go listen to this song as soon as I’m done posting this.
