Purrs & Hisses from Meow Records
By Bryndis Ogmundson
Elvis. I’ve never been a huge Elvis fan, but lately, I adore him. I think I fell into that trap
In today’s musical world, I’m loving that new They Shoot Horses Don’t They? I don’t care what pitchfork says about it, it’s pretty cool. Also, I had given up on the White Stripes, but I think Icky Thump is bringing them back around.
Polyphonic Spree. Does anybody care anymore? The Fragile Army, in my mind, was supposed to be dramatically different and groundbreaking. Instead, it’s a big monotonous snore. It sounds like a collection of b-sides from the first two albums. And Spoon, for cat’s sake, not good. Granted, I was making sushi at the time and only half paying attention, but a great song snaps you out of what you’re doing and makes you pay attention. There was nothing on Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga that did that for me.
I’m at a loss lately. Please, music, do something that makes me excited. I beg you.
