Even with my last Top Ten a month old, I was totally stuck in Mould mode. Lots of M’s…
Godspeed You! Black Emperor – ‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend! (Constellation)
Got a very lucky preview of this album and all I can say right now is that it was even better than expected. Full review to come…
Ringo Deathstarr – Mauve (Club AC30)
Another excellent effort, check out my review for more deets.
Nones – HoZac Hookup Klub 7” (HoZac)
These folks are fun as hell.
Slug Guts – Playin’ In Time With the Deadbeat (Sacred Bones)
These guys were on the same bill with Nones last week and, dammit, I would have liked to have been there.
Cyndi Lauper – She’s So Unusual (Portrait)
This is still great and I’m not ashamed to admit that I think so.
Also, anyone who grew up in this time and says they don’t like this song is probably a liar.
The Tins – Life’s A Gas (Self-Released)
Check my review for info.
A.C. Newman – “I’m Not Talking” (Matador)
I am not enamored with the album but I am obsessed with this song from the upcoming Shut Down The Streets.
Iggy Pop & James Williamson – Kill City (Bomp)
I like this record more every time I leave it for a few years and come back to it. BT scribe Michael Toland wrote a bit on this re-issue when it came out.
That Mitchell And Webb Look (BBC Two)
I have become bored with most American TV, so I’ve been scamming across the pond. There, I found the only sketch comedy show I have liked in 20 years, from the stars of the sitcom Peep Show.
Sherlock (BBC One)
I’ve always thought the non-literary versions of Sherlock Holmes were kinda lame. This one is brilliant. CBS decided to make their own likely sad version.
