In case you missed it, Pitchfork has a great write up of the upcoming reissues of Tim, PtMM, Don’t Tell a Soul, and All Shook Down [September 23] and includes demos of Kiss Me on The Bus, Photo, and Talent Show.
I am quickly becoming a huge fan of 23/6. Here the offer an hilarious post-RNC roundup of things to pack, things they saw, and how the RNC compares to the Minnesota State Fair (pay special attention to that packing list).
(editor’s aside: is it bad that I am letting my nephews age 3 and 4 listen to Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire?” I mean just the mere mention of the word sex will not cause their ears to melt off or anything, right?)
The Beat Patrol does a nice write up for Our Man Paul’s 1996 release, Eventually and he likes it way, way more than I ever did. Eventually remains my least favorite of all of Westerberg’s albums.
It’s slim pickins (how does one punctuate that word) in blogland. I am sure things will pick up once the reissues come out, or if Westerberg decides to release some sort of magnum opus consisting of nothing but 66 minutes of him reading the Yellow Pages while will get a 9.8 from Pitchfork and land him at the top of Pazz and Jop poll.
