Except for a couple of cuts, I agree about Canadian Amp, but it was really
just a hobby project - it didn't even get a full release. I'd be very
surprised if Blacklisted didn't carry on or even improve on the high
standard of Furnace Room Lullaby, and I think the Burns-Covertino backup
should sound great.
On the Sleater-Kinney disc - there's an interesting review in the new Magnet
that remarks that it's got a fair amount of 9/11 content, and winds up
saying something like, "That the message is more important is no reason to
skimp on the medium." I got the impression the reviewer found the disc
uneven. Of course, I've never quite been on the S-K "most important rock
band in the world" bandwagon, though I like them a lot.
Also upcoming, Steve, though not till October - the new Destroyer album, out
on Merge, Oct 4. Word has it that it's quite a change in sound, since the
band is all different from the personnel on Streethawk and Thief -- Dan
describes it as "Richard Harris meets Crazy Horse."
- Yeah, kind of! Of course, I already sold the record back, so I can't
listen to it *again* to be sure. <g>
