New Blog Post: featuring non-rockabilly, 33 1/3 books, Nice Hooves, and more
I keep starting new posts and then not finishing them because I get bored or too busy. So to summarize:
- The Beastie Boys' fifth album, "To the Five Boroughs," is an underappreciated masterpiece.
- Rockabilly is not really a genre of music in its own right.
- "The Chitlin' Circuit and the Road to Rock and Roll" is a tremendous book that you should read.
- WCBN is doing the 33 1/3 book reading series again!
- Some new records I've really liked over the past few months include The Parquet Courts "Light Up Gold," The Hate My Day Jobs self-titled debut, and just this past week, Nice Hooves' self-titled debut.
- Speaking of Nice Hooves, meet my new favorite band.
- While we're on the local bands topic, Protomartyr make great records and I'm sorry to admit that I still have not seen them live. WTF???
That'll do for now. Enjoy listening to some music and then support the bands by like maybe paying for some of this booty.
