Re: I Am Getting Old--A report on a highlight of my year.

Yo La Tengo--I used to love this band! Now I see they are everything wrong with indie rock, and I despise these uber-poseurs. Oh, you're doing the "whispery vocal" thing again? Wow, is that a vintage organ you're allowing to play the same fucking chord for 5 minutes? Assholes. Hey Ira, ma...

I think the lack of replies means neither. Me, I'm going with bands that start with 'G'. Gomez, Guster, and Grandaddy. Somehow they all previously escaped my notice, but no longer.

New(ish)!

So, there are a lot of new(ish) albums by great bands out... Black Keys, Gaslight Anthem, Eels...

What have you picked up lately? What are you digging?

I guess that Nick Hornby/Ben Folds collab is out, but I don't have it yet. Anyone...?

I'm a diehard so I'm not going to say they suck. But I wouldn't love them blindly. I will admit that I really only like about half of this new album, but I do like that half. However, I will concede that this album and the last are not their best. I would even go so far as to say they are uninspired...

My kid's only 5 months old. He does respond well, however, to me bouncing him and singing "Twist & Shout" as well as the "ice cream & cake" song from the Baskin Robbins commercial (man does that get stuck in my head!).

I think the world revolves around YHF. So I never think any album they make could ever be as good. I like this one ok; I'm still breaking it in. I never got around to picking up Sky Blue Sky, but I liked "Impossible Germany".
