Kid606: Songs about Fucking Steve Albini

Rating: Moderately insane

The idea of using a cartoon face of Steve Albini to sell your album is moderately insane. The idea of actually having intercourse with the stellar producer and singer Steve Albini is just out of this world. Especially for heterosexual men, right? Anyway if you don’t get the hint behind the name of this album, check this page

High Places: High Places vs. Mankind

Rating: Very insane

Mankind seems to have lost...

They played in Prague this Sunday, so I saw this cover on their merch stall in various dimensions. They even have similarly themed tour posters where this goo combines with their faces.

El Trío de Omar Rodriguez Lopez: Ciencia de los Inútiles

Rating: Moderately insane

Ancient Latin-American statue sitting on a horse together with a bearded man, backed by an unoffending constructivist frame offers a surprising lack of insanity, otherwise so common with this Mars Volta guitar maestro.

The National: Bloodbuzz Ohio

Rating: Very insane

Is this carved out of wood? Cardboard? What does it mean? Is there a shape of Ohio in it or does it symbolize how entangled human relationships are in lyrics of The National? It might, however the most important thing to know is that this single is free for download and is fantastic so go there and get it.

Future Islands: In Evening Air

Rating: bATsh!t

BTW Be sure to click on the picture to see it in hi-res as the details here are stunning...
