Atlas Sound, Bedroom Databanks 1 & 2

My post about these albums is up here.

There will be at least one more, probably next week.

Ke$ha/Minaj reviews are up

Ke$ha in the San Antonio Current, Nicki Minaj in Clevescene.

Working right now on a long, involved thing for the City Pages music blog on these new outta-nowhere Atlas Sound blog releases; will post a link here when that's done.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Lennon: It ain’t easy.

Brown: Spreading myself around.

Jackson: Everybody wanting a piece.

Brown: Talking all this stuff.

Lennon: They didn’t even give us a chance.

Jackson: Stalking.

Lennon: Eating chocolate cake in a bag.

Jackson: My obituary?

Lennon: Crucify me.

Brown: Why am I so real?

Jackson: Am I crazy?

Lennon: Two gurus in drag.

Jackson: On the screen.

Brown: Oh, no.

Lil Wayne to rap wherever possible while returning home from prison
Somehow, I didn't get around to seeing Mariah Carey's video for "Touch My Body" until today, and it was easily a thousand times more doofy than I ever could have imagined.
