Friday picks

Posted on May 09, 2008 by Steve

Nueva York
The Coast
A straight-ahead rocker that sinks its hooks into you despite some unfortunate choices in shrill background instruments.

Bessie Smith
Emily Jane White
Nice, simple, short, sweet.

Black Mission Goggles
Man Man
A full-on attack of cow bell, sound effects, heavy metal shout-singing, and cheesy la-la-la-lyrics, infused all the same with joie de vivre.

Lonesome New Mexico Nights
Casiotone For The Painfully Alone
A new one for the fans.
