Reviews update & a farewell

In the crazy hustle bustle hamster wheel that is 2008 Q1, some reviews have nearly slipped off the radar of this little web cubby. Rescued from the very recent past, here they are:

The Gutter Twins - Saturnalia

You read about them here, now read about them at Bullz-Eye and anywhere else that gives these guys some ink. Dulli and Lanegan have created a masterpiece. Lovers of darkly spiritual alt-rock, beware!

Kula Shaker - Strangefolk

Another one for Bullz-Eye. Maybe you remember these guys from 10 or so years ago, back when Brit-pop records were actually moving off shelves in the U.S. They're back, finally, with their third album, and not much has changed - the Eastern hippy-drippy psychedelia is still there, they still rock, and they still make uneven albums. But a good amount of the tunes are worth ripping and keeping.

More to come in the not too distant future...

P.S. - R.I.P. Teo Macero. You made Miles' records the events that they are!
