Re: “New releases from Parquet Courts, Cheap Trick, and P.J. Harvey

Cheap Trick! Tom plays a 12 string (not 8) and it's Daxx (not Dax).

Re: “Le Butcherettes, Dweezil Zappa, and Bobby Rush

Yes, Dweezil Zappa did not have to keep moving the tone arm of his turntable to the beginning of a guitar riff over and over to learn it. He could just ask dad or Vai or one of the many who played in Zappa's bands. How convenient! And it seems to have worked out for him plus he will never fear unemployment...

Re: “Joanna Newsom, Ryan Adams, and Frank Zappa

I hear a lot of similarity to Kate Bush's early work, before the more experimental stuff on The Dreaming and Hounds of Love.

Re: “Titus Andronicus, Led Zeppelin, Buddy Guy

The Most Lamentable Tragedy is difficult and ambitious, and there’s a lot of fluff, but the bare bones are beautiful http://killingthebreeze.com/titus-andronicus-the-most-lamentable-tragedy-your-album-of-the-day/

Re: “Tame Impala, Wilco, Veruca Salt

Stopped reading after Let It Happen was referred to as contrived. Risibly absurd.

Re: “David Bowie, Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer, Crime & the City Solution

Thanks, Gary. A true murder ballad must indeed have blood and malicious intent, or we cheapen the very meaning of words.... I usually count half of all lyrical music as murder ballad, but that's just my bad.

Re: “David Bowie, Anais Mitchell & Jefferson Hamer, Crime & the City Solution

A couple of corrections to Loring Wirbel's description of "Child Ballads" by Anais Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer. Only three of the seven songs exceed six minutes, two are under five minutes, and one is under four minutes. Though there are many deaths in them, it's a stretch to call them murder ballads. Four have no deaths and happy endings. One has a shipwreck. One has an execution. One has two suicidal drownings with an assist from a witch's curse.

Re: “Johnny Marr, Daniel Romano, Pissed Jeans

Hmm. I guess I need to delve a bit deeper into (I can see it a bit on The Messenger) Still I connect Television to a more "awkward" post-punk sound (mainly due to Verlaine's delivery) than I do this Johnny Marr album which I think is really "poppy" and easily accessible

Re: “Johnny Marr, Daniel Romano, Pissed Jeans

I honestly thought the guitars had a Lloyd-Verlaine quality in at least three tracks.

Re: “Johnny Marr, Daniel Romano, Pissed Jeans

I wouldn't file the new Johnny Marr anywhere near Television, not because Television isn't amazing, just that they sound nothing alike

Re: “Sound advice

I'm not sure who tagged that Shovels & Rope review with "File next to Dixie Chicks, Sugarland," but those are not the comparisons I made when I wrote it ... I'd align them far more closely to Hayes Carll or Old 97's. Not that there's anything wrong with those artists, but this duo is about as far from Nashville slickness as they can get. And they like it that way.

Re: “Sound advice

Flynnville Train IS on the right track..."Redemption" rocks! "Preachin to the Choir" is a great song and in fact there are 6 songs on that cd that are perfect examples of their originality and talent. Brian Flynn is the lead vocal on the cd with SOME (1 song) back-up with Dan Baird. Dan is truly a talented musician..but make no mistake..This is Flynnville Train and they hold true to the Southern County Rock that we all love.
