Brian Setzer

Setzer Goes Instru-MENTAL!

Oh, oh. Instru-MENTAL. Yeah, yeah. The word “mental” is in the word “instrumental.” Well, that’s our new album title then, for sure. On his latest, Brian Setzer has dropped the Orchestra (a down economy must’ve made touring with 30 plus people impossible) and, apparently, his voice. Tracklist includes song titles that soooo deserve lyrics like “Far Noir East,” “Go-Go Godzilla,” “Hillbilly Jazz Meltdown and “Hot Love.” Actually, glad “Hot Love” has no lyrics.

Gunz N’ Butts

Wrap it up, guys. The competition for World’s Best Album Title just ended.

Digitally remastered two CD edition of the 1964 album from the British rock legends. Includes lots of extras, which are reflected in the whopping price tag. Say what you will: Nostalgia is and will forever be the world’s most powerful drug.

Pitchfork approved femme-folker Merrill Garbus releases the follow-up to her much lauded 2009 debut BiRd-BrAiNs with the highly-listenable w h o k i l l, which ... hold on. Tune-yArDs? BiRd-BrAiNs ? w h o k i l l ? Merrill, you’re great but fUcK yOu!

The band sold 10,000 copies of their self-released, self-titled albums which earned them opening slots on bills headlined by the Vampire Weekends and Dave Matthews Brand. Then Sub Pop came in, signed them, and re-released the album, which is the very definition of what is called “dropping the ball.” Would’ve repackaged it as Gunz N’ Butts if they knew what was good for them.
