Colour Revolt Plunder, Beg and Curse Fat Possum Records

02:00-02:45 of “Ageless Everytime” Every once and a while someone gets the late '90s right. Colour Revolt seems to capture the sounds of bands like Cop Shoot Cop, Shiner and Hum in all the right ways to make what appears to be a solid album – I mean, if you’re older than 25 anyway.

Ours Mercy… Dancing for the Death of an Imaginary Enemy AR LLC

01:00-01:45 of “The Worst Things Beautiful” I actually don’t even need 45 seconds to tell you that this is the most derivative, completely crap-tastic piece of garbage heard all year. Unless you want to hear U2 and My Bloody Valentine mixed into a cesspool of ridiculously stupid lyrics and terrible guitar masturbations, leave this one for the gutters.

Tokyo Police Club Elephant Shell Saddle Creek

01:30-02:15 of “In a Cave” Hmm, Saddle Creek, band that sounds like the Strokes, I think I know what album is going to be popular this week at Lipgloss! Oh, wait, I mean, it’ll be popular in three months at Lipgloss!

Jordan Zevon Insides Out New West Records

02:15-03:00 of “Home” The line “As long as I have life to lead/My heart will be your home” about sums up the wishy-washy 13 year-old sounding lyrics of this alternative pushover stuck in the “lyrical genius” of a middle-schooler’s moleskin.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
