The King of Pop is gone. Say what you want after a life with many problems, the dude could bring it back in the day. Feet barely touched the ground.
You need to watch the brand new Avett Brothers' Tiny Desk Concert. Wonderful. This may be the greatest band in the world. Really. Also, new Paste article on them: Rockin' Steady Wins the Race. Resurgence and Matt Johnson has Thoughts on Music for the Media-Gorged in five parts now. Joe Pug is offering a free EP. Nice. I'm going to review Sojourn's new CD, Over The Grave, either later today or early this week. Look for that.
Last chance for some great $5 albums at Amazon. Available for one more day, Reformissionary Recommends these great albums...
- Antony and the Johnsons: The Crying Light
- Black Mountain: In The Future
- Bon Iver: For Emma, Forever Ago
- Other Lives: Other Lives
- The Wrens: The Meadowlands
One of my favorite new songs is from We Were Promised Jetpacks (great name). Here's "Quiet Little Voices"...
