Brother, Can You Spare Some Music Reviews?

Silversun Pickups

In addition to talking to The Wiggles, and then watching the Wiggles, I have actually listened to some grown up music. Here's the latest.


Tokyo Police Club - I don't hate all Canadians. I wasn't even bugged when guitarist Josh Hook kept saying "oot" and "aboot."

Face to Face
- Singer Trever Keith never bothered to call me back, so instead of an interview, I wrote this little history piece on the band. (I'm crossing my fingers that the reunion album, out this September, is a return to form.)


Silversun Pickups. It was long and loud (and I'm clearly too old) and impressive.


Deftones - Diamond Eyes. If you're a fan of the heavier stuff, I'd highly recommend this one. (I've already confessed my love for it here.)

Tokyo Police Club - Champ. Meh. I like TPC, but this one was a little bland.

Sage Francis - Li(f)e. As a whole, not a great record. However, there is some spoken-word-indie rap awesomeness, namely "The Best of Times." Check the vid here.
