Blondie--The Curse of Blondie
BoDeans--Resolution
Cowboy Junkies--One Soul Now
Chris Stamey--Travels in the South
Wilco--A Ghost is Born
Brian Wilson--Gettin' in Over My Head

I haven't played everything yet, but so far Stamey (formerly of my long-gone favorites the dB's) is the big favorite; the BoDeans are sounding good too.



And what's new in your CD changer/iPod/whatever?

Well, I've now had two unprompted and unrelated recommendations on Gomez in the last six hours, so I'll have to investigate.

Start with In Our Gun (2nd to last album, very quirky, pop-rock...immediately loveable)

If you like that, go back to the beginning (Bring It On). Winner of the Mercury Prize in England (UK's Grammy). Literally recorded in a garage.

Then (if your still with us) get "Liquid Skin" (their 2nd album and my personal fav). Much more challenging but worth listening to (recorded mostly at Abbey Road and shows what they can really do with professional stuff) REALLY NEEDS TO BE LISTENED TO WITH HEADPHONES also utilizes some highly unconventional recording techniques.

Next is Abandoned Shopping Trolley Hotline (a collection of B-sides and live recordings). Even the stuff that didn't make it to the albums is brilliant.

Lastly get their latest, Split the Difference. This album is stripped down rock and roll that, like Liquid Skin, requires headphones to get the full efect . This album just came out and may soon become my favorite. FIVE of the tracks have been recorded in a single take.

I saw these lads (they're from Brighton) live three times allready and will be seeing them again in August (best concerts ever). They 're all under thirty (got signed at 19) but their sound has a sophistication way beyond their years.

If you want to know what they sound like, I can't tell you because every song is different (they have 3 lead singers and all contribute to the writing and arrangements).

Every one I turned them onto (every one except my a-hole brother who likes the dixie chicks) have come back to thank me for it.

Thanks for listening
