Sonic YouthAs summer draws near, the music release lists get shorter - especially for new releases. Sonic Youth's remastered edition of their classic album Daydream Nation (as recently performed live in Spain) and several Dick Dale reissues are the highlights of this release week for me.

I can also strongly recommend Joan As Police Woman's Real Life, Former X frontman John Doe's A Year In The Wilderness, former Jayhawk and Creekdipper Mark Olson's solo album, The Salvation Blues, Scissors for Lefty's Underhanded Romance, and Wooden Wand's James and the Quiet.

Comedian Paul F. Tompkins has a new comedy album (called Impersonal) coming out. Not sure if it's going to be available in stores but you can get it on

Immaculate Machine's name is singular, not plural.

That Joan as Police Woman record is fantastic. Not only does Antony sing with her on "I Defy", but Joseph Arthur provides backup vocals and plays on about 4 tracks. One of my favorite albums from the past year...The US release has all the UK B-sides on the second disc too.
