A new Yeah Yeah Yeahs album is always something I look forward to. I was excited to get the album but my hopes were too high for it. As a whole, not their best work, but there are a lot of tracks that get my blood flowing, particularly "Mosquito."
Those of you who have been to Coachella know what a chore it is. It's partly fun and mostly terrible. I went to Coachella for this band because well, I love them. Suede has a new album out and I can't stop listening. The sad girl in me will forever be devoted to Suede. Oh, and it is SUEDE and not this bullshit The London Suede crap.
Then there is Johnny Marr. I'll be honest, I'm a huge Morrissey/The Smiths fan (you'd know that if you got all of my references on my blog) and nothing sounds as amazing as Morrissey's lovely singing voice and even better- his lyrics. I was a little put off when I heard Johnny Marr was releasing another album where he sings, I mean, Electronic and The Healers were cool but it's no Morrissey and much less The Smiths. I walked into this album expecting to not be phased by it but here I am, humming along to "The Right Thing Right."
