Talk Show Host
Conan O’Brien is in disccusions to bring Late Night to Toronto for a week next February. That would kick some serious ass, hopefully I wouldn’t have to kill too many people to get tickets.
I seem to be all about the EPs lately. My last four pick-ups have all been short-players.
- Ted Leo & The Pharmacists – Tell Balgeary, Balgury Is Dead
(Mostly solo Ted on electric guitar – sounds like old-school Billy Bragg. That’s a good thing.)
- Ryan Adams – Love Is Hell Pt. 1
(Haven’t heard Rock N Roll yet, but this is a lot less glossy than Gold. Sounds good, pretty dark.)
- Spoon – The Way We Get By
(Short! Haven’t watched the videos yet.)
- Yo La Tengo – Today Is The Day!
(Nice to see Ira didn’t throw out all his distortion pedals after all.)
Accidentally hit ‘off’ on my alarm this morning instead of ‘snooze’. Whoops. But that’s okay, I don’t usually accomplish anything in the mornings anyway…
np – Yo La Tengo / Today Is The Day!
