Yesterday I dropped by Homer’s and picked up a copy of Iggy Pop’s new album, Preliminaires, after hearing him interviewed by Terry Gross on Fresh Air (You can hear the interview online here). This is a lush, smoky, gorgeous (but relatively short) album by a guy who, at age 62, only gets better. It’s the kind of album Bowie should have made a decade ago. Go out and buy it.
I also got a copy of Neil Young’s Sugar Mountain: Live at Canterbury House 1968, part of Young’s Archives Performance Series. The double album is pressed on 200 gram vinyl (and weighs a ton) by Toyokasei in Japan (whatever that means). It cost $66 and was worth every penny that I didn’t spend on it (thanks to my store credit at Homer’s).
Finally, I also took home the new one by St. Vincent, Actor. St. Vincent is performing down at Slowdown tomorrow night in the small room, for just $10. You really should go to this. She could be this generation’s PJ Harvey. Find out for yourself.
