New Column: First Listen to the Last Gasp

So I know we still have two months to go, but speaking as a music fan, 2010 is pretty much over for me.

This week at, I examined the final big music week of the year. I know, Kanye and Cee-Lo are coming, but they're isolated incidents. This week was significant: new albums from Elvis Costello, Weezer and Bleu made it into the column, and I also picked up the new Brian Eno and the reissue of Weezer's Pinkerton. Hopefully that'll be enough to sustain me through the long winter weeks ahead.

Luckily, I liked everything I heard. Costello is typically excellent, Weezer is silly and fun, and Bleu, well, he may have made the power-pop album of the year. You can read my initial reactions to these records by clicking here, then come back here to leave me a comment.


  1. You will be interested to know (and probably already do) that Daniel Amos is releasing a new record next year and funding it through also.

  2. Hey Shawn,

    I actually did know that, and I'll be mentioning it in an upcoming column. Although given Terry's history, I'm not sure I'd count on next year. ;-)
