NEW RECORDS I'M LISTENING TO

  1. PJ Harvey - The Hope Six Demolition Project
    When you get a PJ Harvey record, you just get so much. This record lives somewhere between the Patti Smith-esque rock of "Stories from..." and her last 3 records. It's shimmery but dark, bluesy but modern, angry and beautiful.
  2. Parquet Courts - Human Performance
    New York's Parquet Courts continue their Television/Velvet Underground vibe on this excellent new record. These songs feel like drugs...good drugs.
