In My Life
helluva write-up. guess i’m gonna have to check out your music now.
I really shouldn’t have to say this in 2013, but AdBlock is your friend
The name of Rustie’s album is Glass Swords, and it came out in 2011.
A pretty glaring omission
Can’t wait for these guys to assault my earholes again
I would switch #1 and #2 – but it’s a minor quibble.
The 4 album Rod/Faces run of Every Picture Tells a Story > Nod> Never a Dull Moment > Ooh La La is one of my favorites in rock n roll.
great pick for album of the week.
one album which deserved to be included in the notables is Haiku Salut’s impressive debut, Tricolore.
An all-female instrumental trio from England, they offer up the clumsy self-description of “Baroque-Pop-Folktronic-Neo-Classical-Something-Or-Other” – but I can’t do any better.

Wait, I’ve got one! “End of the Century – The Story of the Ramones”

I think you overrated 29 and underrated Rock n Roll, but otherwise pretty spot-on.
It looks like a silhouette profile of Mokey from Fraggle Rock
“In White’s catalog, the album it most resembles is probably the White Stripes’ piano-and-marimba affair Get Behind Me Satan.”
Consolers of the Lonely seems a stronger touch-point.
eh, why not
And mine should be included on the list of “15 ways not to catch your typing mistakes”
No, but your post should should be included on the list of “15 grammar rules not to follow”
because DVS is so dreamy.
Wesley Morgan Paraham, meet Burial
