And when I say New Music, I mean new for me:
El Camino by the Black Keys was a Christmas gift. It sounds pretty good so far, but I’m really still absorbing it. It’s definitely a departure from Brothers, and I haven’t decided if that’s a good thing yet.
Yuck is Magnet’s Album of the Year, and it sounds so 1994 that it hurts. Magnet triangulates it somewhere between Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr., but I keep hearing Nada Surf’s first EP.
As for Scofield, I just picked up Uberjam on a whim on Amazon MP3 for $4.99. Can’t beat that.
