Lady GaGa

Born This Way

(Interscope/Streamline)

Sounds Like: The 25-year-old egomaniac’s reputation precedes her. She gives us 17 new songs here, only about five of which are worth listening to more than once.

Free Association: She’s better at fashion, Tweeting and “monster”-nonsense than music.

For Fans Of: Madonna’s “Express Yourself,” Queen + Kylie, Alexander McQueen, disco ballz.

My Morning Jacket

Circuital

(ATO)

Sounds Like: The Kentucky boys are going strong with their sixth LP in 12 years, a fine blend of all the elements they specialize in—folk, psych, classic rock, prog and funk.

Free Association: For lukewarm fans, this’ll make you see the shimmering lights.

For Fans Of: Neil Young, Band Of Horses, beards and beer bellies.

Hunx and His Punx

Too Young To Be In Love

(Hardly Art)

Sounds Like: The Gravy Train!!!! cook, Seth Bogart, recruits four ladies to sing behind his whacky, gay-themed surf rock songs of love lost and dicks sucked in vain.

Free Association: There’s a heavy handed tongue-in-cheek here, and it’s pretty rad.

For Fans Of: Queer Jay Reatard + Vivian Girls, Ramones with girls, leather bars.

Amon Tobin

“Lady Gaga is a cult leader.

Some people have no one else
to focus on.

It's a good cult.

Her music is redundant but she is
what is important.

Egomania is all a person has to
live on sometimes..give her a break.”
