Jeff Nielsen: October 31, 2010

  1. NoMeansNo – Tour E.P. (Wrong Records, 2010)

    Anyone who thinks these Wright brothers have no new tales to tell needs to check out the 4th track here, “Something Dark Against Something Light”.


    (You have to love that their url is ‘myspaceiswrong’)

  2. Bad Religion – Stranger Than Fiction (Atlantic, 1994)

    Likely BR’s most distinctive set of songs, including the explosive Better Off Dead


  3. The Sharks – Show of Hands (indie, 2010)

    Another swaggering UK guitar pop band but one with a serrated edge.


  4. The Piney Gir Country Roadshow – Jesus Wept – (Damaged Goods, 2010)

    Country-gospel-punk should give you an initial idea but you’ll need a hell of a lot more hyphens before you’re done describing this Anglo-American unit.


  5. Steve Adamyk Band – S/T (Trash Records, 2010)

    The Canadian province of Ontario unleashes another punk-powered pop band on the world.


  6. Fantastic Mr. Fox OST (Abkco, 2009)

    Wes Anderson may have fallen in the eyes of the cognoscenti but he still puts together fascinating soundtracks full of strange companions like Burl Ives, The Beach Boys and The Wellingtons.


  7. New Model Army – High (Attack, Attack, 2007)

    Justin Sullivan stubbornly refuses to fade into irrelevancy.


  8. The Lost Dogs – Old Angels (Fools of the World, 2010)

    These long-in-the-tooth country-rockers took a tour down Route 66 a couple years ago and have now recorded this pretty but ghostly album as a reminiscence.


  9. Graham Parker and (much of) The Rumour – Reunion Show (Oct. 21st, 2010)

    Yeah you read that right…

  10. Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (Pantheon, 2004)

    Beautifully written and illustrated story of the coming of age of an Iranian punk girl in the 1980’s.
