This week: reviews of new albums from Comet Gain, Elbow, Allah-Las, The Hecks and Lindstrøm, plus reissues from The Wedding Present, and a damn fine compilation from Tim Burgess (Charlatans) and Bob Stanley (Saint Etienne).
The Norwegian dance music producer made his new album without a laptop. “The joy of making music on actual physical objects and devices makes a lot of sense to me now. After working on a computer for over 15 years, I don’t think I’ll ever look back.”
Tonight's NYC-area shows include Holly Herndon, Bjork, Broken Social Scene, mewithoutYou/Cursive/Appleseed Cast, The Dream Syndicate, The Hold Steady/John K Samson, Olden Yolk, Damien Jurado, Meshuggah, Charly Bliss, and more.
