Magic

(Anti-)

Sounds Like: The super-baritone pulls from the now worn Tom Waits playbook with dark, slow and poetic mediations on nature, love and angst on his ANTI- debut.

Free Association: The two jams on the record don’t save the often crap lyricism.

For Fans Of: Cash, The Boss, Gil Scott-Heron + corny white man lyrics.

The Psychic Paramount

II

(No Quarter)

Sounds Like: A New York noise rock trio’s first in almost five years is a wicked trip of hard sounds with loads of feedback and reverb, but a few moments of brilliant grooves.

Free Association: Tough to get into at first, but settle in for some serious payoff.

For Fans Of: Trans Am, Acid Mothers Temple, Maserati, shredding.

Everybody Wants To Be A Cat

Disney Jazz, Volume 1

(Walt Disney)

Sounds Like: Standards like songs from Mary Poppins, Lady and the Tramp, Toy Story and such, done (sleepily) by modern jazz greats and soulful chanteuses.

Free Association: The Brubeck and Hargrove joints are solid, the rest are for super fans.

For Fans Of: Sondheim, Gerswhin, Fantasia (the film), The Disney Store.

Wye Oak

Civilian

(Merge)
