I was on a plane for most of today so I’ll keep it short…
New and Notable This Week
- Beastie Boys: The Mix-Up
Instrumental and funky. I think this will be great to listen to while coding.
- Bryan Ferry: Dylanesque
Bryan Ferry sings Bob Dylan songs. The songs sound more like Brian than Bob.
- Nick Lowe: At My Age
The album should be titled “Still Under-Appreciated At My Age”.
- Paul Simon: The Essential Paul Simon
I caught the last half of the PBS special last Wednesday where The Library of Congress awarded Paul Simon the first Gershwin Prize. Listen to this greatest hits to remember why he deserves it.
- Kelly Willis: Translated from Love
I’m picky about what country music I like. The more it sounds like Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Sr., or George Strait, the more I like it. And I’ve always had a soft spot for Kelly Willis.
