This Week's Music: Sujfan, Bruno Mars, No Age

Sufjan Stevens, The Age of Adz -- I generally like about half of every Sufjan album (the soft, less annoying stuff). This one was far too complicated for me. 

Bruno Mars, Doo-wops and Hooligans -- Bruno Mars is getting lots of pop praise. I didn't love it. 

No Age, Everything In Between -- If you like the catchy surf punk, drenching in layers of noise (which I do), you should enjoy this. (They also get points for the best artwork and packaging I've seen in a long time.)

What is with all these catchy surf punk bands that are surfacing lately? It's like they are on this wave of popularity and I just don't get it.

I liked the No Age LP "Nouns" quite a bit. If you haven't heard it, start out with this one - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hm82vG2P4x0. I first loved the song because I loved the video.
