Quick Spins

 

Theory of a Deadman
Gasoline
(604)

I envy the dead
Trite lyrics can’t offend them
And their ears don’t work

 

The Libertines
What Became of the Likely Lads
(Rough Trade)

Stopgap live EP
As British as spotted dick
Bloody noice, guv’nah

 

Brian Borcherdt
The Remains of…
(Dependent)

Sad guy plays lo-fi
Proving you can have emo
Without the scream-o

 

Lisa Marie Presley
Now What
(Capitol)

Skillz ain’t genetic
Trust me. Just ask Brent Gretzky
Or Tito Jackson

 

Skindred
Babylon
(Lava)

Reggae-rap-metal
But really, isn’t that the
Best kind of metal?

 

Louis XIV
The Best Little Secrets Are Kept
(Atlantic)

I like T-Rex too
But not as much as these guys
Still, catchy like SARS

 

Deana Carter
The Story of My Life
(Vanguard)

Clichés plus clichés
Wrapped in pure MOR shit
That’s your life story?

 

Magnolia Electric Co.
What Comes After the Blues
(Secretly Canadian)

He can do no wrong
Critical darling cures sick
And shits gold nuggets
