What a great week I had last week, reviewing both the new Boston Spaceships and A.C. Newman’s latest. Boston Spaceships won’t be up for a while, but Dusted’s got my review of Get Guilty up right now. I say, “Newman practices a spinning plate sort of complexity, juggling big rock sounds on fragile sticks of melody, heaping difficulty upon difficulty, without a single crash (or even a grimace). It looks easy. It sounds easy. It is not.” There’s more here.
“Submarines of Stockholm”
Also, while you’re over there, check out how the usually cranky Dusted calls Merriweather Post Pavillion “the finest moment in the Animal Collective’s decade-plus history.” It’s a really good review of a really good album by Michael Crumsho.
