The BJM record is a real turd. Anton may have finally lost all of his talent.

That AA Bondy album is pretty good.

The Mt. Wilson Repeater album is a real sleeper surprise. People should really get around to giving it a listen.

Heard "Out Country Way" off that record on NYU radio last night and it's pretty great.


The new Brian Jonestown Massacre is actually pretty solid. The most cohesive thing he's put out in some time now
