Incoming! New music and upcoming concertsJanuary 20, 2008
Three albums that I’ve been looking forward to:
Just released: The new Magnetic Fields album, Distortion, which Stephin Merritt describes as inspired by Jesus and Mary Chain‘s Psychocandy, ‘Just getting to a sound that’s raw and dirty and not inaudible takes a lot of work.’ Their two nights in Boston are sold out, unfortunately, at least at the moment (thank you, TicketBastard) but you might have better luck elsewhere.
Also just out, British Sea Power‘s third album, Do You Like Rock Music? Hell yeah, especially if it’s the new BSP. Unfortunately, looks like they don’t have any East Coast tour dates yet, but I’m optimistic.
And coming out next month: Heretic Pride, the gazillionth release by the Mountain Goats. They are hitting both high and low culture in Boston, playing at the Museum of Fine Arts and at the Middle East Downstairs on consecutive nights.
