New Releases This Week: 31 January 2012
The music industry has finally awoken from it’s winter’s nap with a slate of releases that will have people talking. Some quick thoughts on a few of them.
The Asteroids Galaxy Tour/Out of Frequency: You know that Heineken commercial with the band featuring the blond singer? Those guys.
Leonard Cohen/Old Ideas: Lenny’s first album since 2004. Who will be the first to dare write an even a lukewarm review of such a sacred cow?
Lana Del Rey/Born to Die: Wow. Can the media get any more harsh? Doesn’t matter, though, because I still like her. And she’s smokin’ hot.
Craig Finn/Clear Heart Full Eyes: Solo outing for the baseball-lovin’ frontman of the Hold Steady. Great dude, too.
Imperial Teen/Feel the Sound: Wow. It’s like it’s 1999 again. Good on you, Roddy.
Metallica/Beyond Magnetic EP: Four songs that didn’t make Death Magnetic. Sorry, guys, but this still doesn’t atone for Lulu.
