The heat and the work have been keeping me away from good ol' fashioned time wasting (um, i mean, music journalism) and I forgot say a few things. Two great shows happened at my house. The ever-awesome Annabeth McNamara's new band Fig & Sparrow headlined a garden party for one and the force that is Poppet rocked a dance party for the other. These things were good. Annabeth McNamara- Got No Choice (off the Desert Rec's Compilation) Poppet & Goomey- In Vintage Dreams (off the Poppet & Goomey Ep) Experimental musician and all-around-good-guy, Abusive Consumer (AKA- Abusive Delay, RmCLR), has moved to Olympia. Let us be the first to publicly welcome him to our fair city. Abusive Delay- Alarm at the End (off the Abusive Consumer Ep) I realized The Blackberry Bushes do a pretty bomb bluegrass version of a Bruce Springsteen song on their new album. Blackberry Bushes- I'm on Fire (Bruce Springsteen cover) (off Little Bit of Grace) And Sub Pop sent me a new No Age song that's pretty good. I actually know absolutely nothing about No Age, but I bet for some people this will be exciting and mean something. To me, it sounds like art rockers playing power pop. No Age- Glitter (off the 7" of the same name)
