Hey, check out some music today.
Score of a movie, very jaunty and interesting, but not much else.
Ghost Songs, Waltzes and Rock & Roll
If you like the music of Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, etc., you might like this. Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite hit the mark with me. Interesting, but not super-engaging
Interesting foreign language album, takes in all sorts of influences and kicks it around a bit. Worth a shot!
Love to hear back from Sarah. This one has quite a bit of orchestration, and her distinctive vocals. It might not have any immediate songs, but this is a grower, and I expect to continue enjoying this for a while.
The Polyphonic Spree
Holidaydream: Sounds of the Holidays Volume One
Christmas records are a risk, you either stick with the way the songs have always been, or you change things up with mixed results. The Polyphonic Spree take the “different” route, and I’m not sure if they really did much to bring life to these songs.

Ok, here we are, 2009, it’s gonna be great! Let’s get started!
Andrew Bird – Noble Beast – ***1/2 – More goodness from Andrew Bird. I think it finds the happy medium between the Mysterious Production of Eggs album and the Armchair Apocrypha album, having some of the lightness of Eggs with more of the electronic instrumentation found on Armchair.
Antony & The Johnsons – The Crying Light – *** – Continue reading
