Sparks -- Exotic Creatures of the Deep -- their BEST album has come nearly 40 years in.

Byrne/Eno -- Everything That Happens Will Happen Today -- The little bald twerp is likeable as always, and Byrne is likeable for the first time since True Stories.

Alejandro Escovedo -- Real Animal -- Sometimes you CAN go back. Only it sounds WAY better than The Nuns ever did.

Matthew Loiacano -- Kentucky. Multi-instrumentalist for the Kamikaze Hearts eschews sounding like the great lost Band/Son Volt album, and nicely splits the difference between Nickel Creek a Sufjan Stevens instead.

Paul Westerberg -- 49:00. As much an experience as an album, and as such, as close to a 'Mats album as you'll ever hear again.

Hey Mug, what the heck ever happened to Everlast? I'll have to check out his new album.

I always thought he should do a hip-hop blues remake of "I Am The Walrus" by the Beatles.

Funny enough, I was wondering the same thing and then -- the new one. Give it a listen, for sure. The cover of Folsom Rrison Blues, is, to my ears, superb!

Gotta agree, a hip hop Walrus would be very cool. Happy Halloween and have a great weekend.

What do you like from the new Oasis? I only listened to it once and nothing jumped out.
I always listen to my ipod on shuffle. But for new stuff I've been liking the Ting tings, gnarls barkley, and the Fratellis.
Rock On!
