the littlest birds sing the prettiest songs

The Be Good Tanyas are at the Commodore on November 30th. Hello Love hasn't gotten that much attention, but it's a pretty good little record. I'm not completely in love with it... at least not to the same extent as Chinatown, but goddamn that's one fine cover of "For the Turnstiles."

Fresh off an 8.1 rating on PFork, Beach House are at Pat's on November 11th.

Speaking of PFork... how come Beach House scores an 8.1, but the Oxford Collapse is "recommended" with a 7.9... and then Chavez gets a 9.4 (the same as the Hold Steady), but their record is neither "best new music" or "recommended." Why don't they just change the categories to "Ryan Schreiber likes this" or "Ryan Schreiber really likes this." Actually, on that note, why doesn't he just "fix" the ratings... at least then there'll be some sort of consistency.

Rhymefest is tipped as the opener for J5's Commodore shows.

The Detroit Cobras show is cancelled. Refunds at point of purchase.

There will be a few Sufjan tickets available at the door tomorrow. edit: they're at Zulu right now, and they won't be at the door. If you want one, hustle.

Paul Devro and his Salon de Bourgeoisie co-conspirators have bounced back from the Balmoral's shut down by moving south to the Biltmore. $5.25 doubles will get you drunk enough to dance your ass off to the rad tunes.

Stereogum points us to a Jeff Tweedy solo performance of the as-yet-unreleased, "The Thanks I Get." The vid is taken from Tweedy's forthcoming Live in the Pacific Northwest DVD, which is out in 11 days.



now playing: the Rolling Stones - Beast of Burden

the chavez album is a reissue of their two albums put together which is why is not in best new music.

ahhh... that explains that one... though not Beach House (among other records)

I kind of liked the new Be Good Tanyas...I wrote it up on Saturday (though posted it as Friday). The covers were great, but their songs didn't do much for me.
