Tuesday Was New Release Day.....
Some first impressions.
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists - Shake The Sheets
Seems to be far more 70's-riff rock oriented than his last one, but still catchy as cholera, and Leo's enthusiasm never fails to carry the day. Can't help but think that his vocals are a little low in the mix though.
Le Tigre - This Island
I've always been a huge fan of their song "Deceptacon," which is so awesome that even the DFA couldn't improve on it. So far, nothing on This Island comes close to matching that song, and only now am I coming to see how a whole album's worth of Kathleen Hanna can be more than a little annoying. But first impressions are just that, and I plan to listen much more.
