– If her new album rocks as hard as “longer,” Lydia Loveless will be one to keep watching. I’m a sucker for electric rhythm riffin’.
– Wary and weary of the “Lady Marmalade” remake released in the early Bush years, I wasn’t looking forward to Missy stretching and spraying the bon mots from Ray Parker, Jr.’s Kendall Toyota anthem. Everyone on this track is past his or her prime.
– I got to Blood Orange last wee and will give him a looksy at Pitchfork Festival this weekend.
