    Not Telling
  1. I just read this about a week ago. It was charming for the most part. I like Rob Sheffield, and I really enjoyed his first book, but there were elements of Talking To Girls... that made me roll my eyes, especially that women and girls are flaky, superficial music fans who just want to dance. I take it that it's supposed to be some sort of compliment (we girls don't have to worry about serious stuff like bootleg collecting, or discussing the minutiae of Smiths lyrics -- my examples, not his), but it's a tired old stereotype.

Listened to it one time and sort of forgot it existed.) Mary Gauthier - The Foundling (See above) She & Him - Volume Two (I know M. Ward and Zooey have a lot of fans here, but I just can't get into her voice. It's kind of, um, awfu

  6. Love her. Check out Metropolis, too.
  7. These won't win me any popularity points... The Mountain Goats - Yes, John Darnielle is a great songwriter, but I'm not a fan of his thin, whiny vocals Bright Eyes See above And yes, The Hold Steady. He doesn't sing; he barks.
  8. Yes. So. Grand is good for shopping, too, but I'm biased since I grew up around there.
