J Mascis - Several Shades Of Why

Here's a link to a short n' sweet review I wrote of the new J Mascis record from this week's Metro Times. I keep accidentally calling the record Several Shades of Grey because of his hair.

Also, the contest for "most best album cover of the year" ended this day this record was released, yes?

He's playing tomorrow night at the Blind Pig. I'm excited.

Wonder Twins: Justin Bieber Never Say Never

New Wonder Twins in yesterday's Metro Times. Oh, the things we do for you people... This time we went to see the Justin Bieber 3-D concert movie video film Never Say Never. You know, for the lulz. This is apparently now the top grossing concert film in US history or some such? Well, just wait until the remastered director's cut of the Barry Manilow Special from 1977 is re-released in theaters. Then shit's gonna change fast...Italic

Have you reached the bottom yet? I hope not.

Mr. John Nelson was in one of my very favorite Detroit bands - the very recently defunct New Grenada. He currently plays with Copper Thieves and Destroy This Place. He has a brand new solo project. Check it out here.

The Hounds Below - "Cumberland's Crumblin"

Ok, this is kind of the best video ever...

If you're one of those SXSW people, word is these guys are a "2011 Showcasing Artist" or some such. Go see them. They're everything the new Arcade Fire album should have been.

Blowout - it is happening

I've been doing Blowout blogging, and this trend will continue through the end of the festivities. I've been posting them on my Tumblr, but you can also find them directly on the Metro Times Music Blahg. I keep forgetting to cross-post them here. Mostly because using Blogger is making me feel increasingly homicidal.
