Singles 2/28

Credit Robyn for recognizing soundscapes as alluring as Neneh Cherry’s. I hope to review Blank Project next week, my favorite album this quarter. Speaking of, I gave Miranda Lambert too much. Country history can proffer myriad recollections of good times that ring about as true as Ronald Reagan’s WWII service (Merle Haggard was the king of them; this one is pretty good), and insofar as “Automatic” deserves a listen give the credit to Lambert’s lived-in vocal.

I can’t get away without mentioning the horror of the Tegan and Sara’s association with The Lonely Island and a five-part harmony that isn’t a Bryan Adams cover.
