Is Ryan Adams spreading himself too thin?
The new Supergrass album however...is amazing!...just kidding...i actually haven't got it yet. Only a and b had it and it was rather expensive, but i'm just gonna have to bite the bullet i guess.
A rather nice suprise is Matt Mays and el Torpedo's selftitled album. It's remniscent of Tom Petty, and i'm really digging it. Rock with a subtle southern/country flavour. Nothing too flashy, but all the players are solid and Mays' voice has a good raggedy rock sound to it. They're coming to town soon as well it seems. This is the album i've listened to most since tuesday, when those other new albums came out. I sure wasn't impressed by the lead single 'Cocaine Cowgirl', but now that it's just another song on the album, i can dig it. If you're looking for some really solid rock 'n' roll, especially on an album that has great song by song strength, Matt Mays may be your man.
According to Cam Fuller's article in the paper today Boy had a rough show last night opening for Collective Soul. That's really too bad, as they're vastly better than the headliners, or the band that preceeded them, the dreadful rap-rock group Kazzer. I guess their brand of rock was maybe too Brit or classic sounding. It's too bad, b/c they'll leave with the impression that this town is just for hicks...sigh.
