Here I review some new music:
Chemical Brothers:Push the Button
Hey, I didn't know I liked the Chemical Brothers! I think I saw them play live last year, but I could be mixing them up with someone else. Anyway, if that was them I like this new CD better. Actually I really like this CD! I love the track The Boxer (featuring Tim Burgess)
Two thumbs up!
Daft Punk:Human After All
I found a very shiny happy review of this album on a teen music site. Need I say more? I wont delete this from my iPod yet, but soon....... maybe. I think it could grow on me.
One thumb up!
Death Cab for Cutie:Transatlanticism
This is such a great name for a band!!!!!! And the song Passenger Seat is quite pretty and kind of haunting. However, most of the CD is as banal as the title of the song Death of an Interior Decorator would suggest.
One thumb down.
It is impossible to say anything bad about this CD because every time I put it on, I somehow forget there is music playing and don't notice it. All the songs sound kind of the same to me - tuneful brit-pop. Its kind of like eating a diet yogurt mouse... It tastes good, you wont regret it after the fact, but you'll be hungry for something more filling within an hour.
Where are my thumbs?
Xiu Xiu:Fabulous Muscles
Hmmmm... this is the kind of music that actually bugs me. Kind of pretentious pop/industrial noise fusion. It might make okay background music for an arty cafe that cultivating a gothic modern look.
Two thumbs down.
