- Lester Bangs once said, “In the history of rock n’ roll, no artist has squandered his talent so completely as Rod Stewart.” (Bangs also wrote a mini-biography of Stewart that I’m trying to get my hands on.) I can honestly say that EVERY PICTURE TELLS A STORY is one of my favorite albums ever. Seriously. Get it.
- The Walkmen are doing a live concert on NPR. Although I’m disappointed by the new album (the boring songs, the way-out-of-register singing…Pitchfork had a good review), I’m still looking forward to seeing them later this month.
- Article in VQR on Little Nemo In Slumberland, a favorite read before bed.
