FIFTEEN WORDS WITH:
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Here
Hippie wannabes explore the free world by producing… generic indie folk? Positives: Jesus as singer.
Glen Hansard – Rhythm & Repose
Tries hard to be Damien Rice. Ends up like plain Müller Rice: flavourless and lumpy.
Can – The Lost Tapes
Exhaustive. Three inconsistent disks full of rarities. Incredible and confusing. Fanatics only. But that’s me.
The Offspring – Days Go By
Oh dear. Every 90s childhood destroyed and softened into The Cult. Should’ve quit while ahead.
Melody Gardot – The Absence
Smooth Billie Holiday voice hits all the right places. Songs not so convincing. Better live.
Naam – The Ballad of Starchild EP
More Children of The Grave from the psychedelic conveyorbelt. See: every other Teepee Records band.
PIRATE PETE SAYS:
No loot found this week.
