Back to business. I'm still perusing the new Matt Pond release, but the single on my list is unbelievably catchy. The Dandy's are of course back on task with their new release Odditorium. My initial listens have me embracing "everyone is totally insane" and not simply because I believe the sentiment. I'm also getting into a couple of girl vocally led groups, The Like and The Metric. The Like appear to have some major label support and thus have a pretty polished release right now. I'll have to say I do enjoy her Bjorkesque vocals....Not as acrobatic but rhaspy and deliciously seductive. I love a voice like that. The Metric are quasi indie quasi pop. This is an older release as their latest isn't on Rhapsody yet. The Rob Dickinson (aka former Catherine Wheel frontman) release is not bad. I like the track, albeit studio slick, but still have to get my mind around the whole album. Lastly, Crooked Fingers make another appearance simply because they rule and i'm at peace with the the idea of "throwing my weary arms around the one" I love.
