    Rock and/or roll.

    Dear everyone,
    I downloaded these four albums last week, and must highly recommend them all. In no order:

    PJ Harvey/John Parish - "A Woman, A Man, Walked By"
    It's somewhere in between the ethereal, scary beauty of 2007's "White Chark" and the roaring blues rock of both "To Bring You My Love" and "Uh Huh Her." PJ and Parish haven't worked together since 1996's "Dance Hall At Louse Point." It's brutally lovely.

    Yeah Yeah Yeahs - "It's Blitz!"
    The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a wonderful combination of the Ramones, the Bangles and TV on the Radio - bouncy, fuzzy and fun. Karen O is my fashion hero.

    Mirah - "(A)spera"
    Mirah dresses up her spare, achingly intimate indie folk with string and horn orchestration. Mirah somehow manages to be both maternal and comforting and a total sex kitten, all at the same time. One of my favorite contemporary vocalists.

    DOOM - "Born Like This"
    Not a word out of rapper DOOM, aka MF Doom, aka Daniel Dumile, since 2005's "The Mouse and the Mask." Now, out of the blue, comes the dark, sinister, ridiculously eloquent and intelligent "Born Like This." Weird beats and even weirder rhymes, and yet it's still totally irresistable. And it's funny, too.

    From the Facebook group:
    "The Flannery Brothers won Session II in the John Lennon Songwriting contest for our song "One Wasn't Enough," and now we need your help! We are going head to head in a popular vote with the winner from Session I, Gustafer Yellowgold. We are definitely the underdogs here, but with your support, we have a chance to win the Lennon Award!!!"
