I forgot to mention that a few of my music scribblins ran yesterday. Scribblins. I just can't get enough of that Sarah Palin-speak.
I reviewed the new Momus disc, Joemus, over at Dusted. Do you know Momus? He's a scathing Scottish wit with a thing for analog synths and Japanese women. Momus, a.k.a. Nick Currie, says my review is "worth quoting in its entirety." A commentor at his site writes, "I think there's a positive correlation between people liking Momus records and people writing well, though that would have to be tested in lab conditions." I concur. Surely Mr. Currie won't mind my posting his ditty "Dracula," then?
I tackled the solo debut from Amanda Palmer of Dresden Dolls for Washington City Paper. You can watch a bunch of videos from the album here. An associate, Charles McEnerney, interviewed Ms. Palmer on his "Well Rounded Radio" program — check it out here.
As you were.
