Alright people, let’s make this a quick one - Glasvegas is playin’ tonight

 AMERICAN GRAFFITI

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

Where were you in ’62? I wasn’t even a glob of spooge. And so, this film – with its tales of smug assholes and weiner dudes and mystery blondes and Wolfman Jacks has never done a thing for me. Maybe it’s because I can’t connect to car culture? Maybe because I think the music is – by and large – lame? Maybe it’s because this is ground zero for the Baby Boomer nostalgia trip that put the erroneous belief in their brains that they were the very best generation of humans to ever soil the Earth with the soles of their feet?

I’ve always preferred Joe Dante’s Matinee. But what do I know, I’m a bear – I suck the heads off fish.

At any rate, George Lucas’ paean to post-war/pre-war solipsism is on the shelf today, with tweaked visuals carried over from the last DVD release. Wonder if Mackenzie Phillips fires first in this one?

UPDATE! Sewer Chewer DOC PHIBES brings up the following bit of info I may have overlooked due to my hatred of Ryan O’Neil:

Of course, there’s the small matter of STANLEY FUCKING KUBRICK’S BARRY LYNDON released as an Amazon exclusive Blu-ray today.”

BARRY LYNDON

BUY IT EXCLUSIVELY FROM AMAZON FOR $13.99!

There’s nothing I can tell you about this film that you don’t already know – except maybe that having it on my shelf got me laid. Too much info..?

Maybe – until you realize that it might just work for you!

CAT O’ NINE TALES

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

Dario Argento’s second film is not as visually-arresting as his future work, but it certainly features many of the interests and idiosyncracies.

KABOOM

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

There are those who say that Gregg Araki is a “love him or hate him” kinda’ filmmaker. I think that’s unfair and untrue. There are films of his I flat-out loathe – Doom Generation being one of them (I think it’s a celebration of the sort of vapid youth he seems to slap in the teeth with his own far superior Nowhere), but there’s no mistaking his flair as a visual stylist. And when he’s working with material that resonates, the result is Mysterious Skin.

With Kaboom, Araki returns to the candy-coated hot sex/hot mess excess of Nowhere – but he melds it with the dopey sweetness of his stoner comedy Smiley Face. Diving into the plot is pointless. Thomas Dekker is a pansexual pretty-boy with family issues, Haley Bennett exists to make me feel filthy just looking at her, er – I mean, she’s playing Dekker’s BFF with problems of her own (she’s trying to extricate herself from her latest fuck-buddy – who happens to be a full-on supernaturally-powered witch). Meanwhile, the college campus they inhabit is being stalked by a killer (or killers) – who may be connected to Dekker’s character in some way. Maybe the perpetually-stoned RA (the beloved James Duvall – now Araki’s elder statesman) knows a thing or two – after all, he’s The Messiah. But how is all of this somehow connected to a doomsday cult? And is it all a metaphor for sexual confusion/awakening? Whaaat?!

Oh well – you’re either in or out with this one. I laughed my ass off in the theatre.

LEGEND: ULTIMATE EDITION

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

Ah, Legend – you great and terrible thing. There’s something about Ridley’s film that has clung to me since I was small, but watching it today just confirms the film a mess a thousand times over. Maybe that’s the point. I mean, sure – narratively, everything works out in the end, but the film is more concerned with the death of magic and the corruption of innocence than showing us how lovely those things are. For a world so wondrous, it certainly seems bleak and grey, and Mia Sara is 200-360% hotter when she goes all Evil-Lyn…I dunno’ – I’m conflicted. Legend feels like a live action version of the fairy tale movie Walt Disney would have made if he had absolute contempt for all living things.

Maybe that’s why I like it…?

ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

How best to explain it? Excellent transfer, amazing commentary, Claudia Cardinale – you need this movie in your life like the air you breathe.

ROOKIE BLUE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON

Rookie Blue is essentially Gray’s Anatomy in a Canadien Cop Shop, notable only for the fact that it is a vehicle for a woman I adore more than any living creature. There’s no limit to the depths I would sink to if Missy Peregrym was asking. I would do Steve-O levels of harm to myself if she wanted me to. When I assassinate whichever Repulicant winds up elected in 2012, it will be to impress Missy Peregrym. Missy, I will love you till I am deep below the sea. I will make your enemies die for their sins. THE VOICES IN MY HEAD TELL ME TO MAIM!!

Uhhh…sorry, everybody.

PSYCH: THE COMPLETE FIFTH SEASON

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

For those not aware, Psych is an hour-long comedy starring James Roday and Dule Hill as a pair of dudes who’ve barely convinced the Santa Monica Police Department that they run a “psychic” detective agency. In reality – Shawn Spencer’s (Roday’s) skill comes down to keen powers of deductive reasoning and observation, both drilled into his skull in an almost abusive fashion by his Supercop father (Corbin “Fucking” Bernsen), and the fact that his friend Burton “Gus” Guster is a walking encyclopedia with supernatural olfactory powers. The mysteries they solve sometimes only barely qualify as mysteries at all – they mostly exist as the framework on which to hang pop-cultural references too cool for fucking Family Guy (one of my absolute favorite episodes is an amazing homage to the slasher genre that features shot for shot lifts of Happy Birthday to Me, My Bloody Valentine, and April Fool’s Day, among others) and to showcase the Bill Murray-esque snark of Roday, and the multi-faceted charm of Hill. It’s a show that plays like an actual intelligent sitcom, but with the continuity and character development of an hour-long drama. This is a totally fun show.

NOW THAT’S WHAT I CALL MUSIC – WITH JEB DELIA!

DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE – CODES AND KEYS

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

If you don’t equate “maturing” with “growing old and irrelevant,” then it’s appropriate to call this album a step in the maturation of Ben Gibbard and Chris Walla. The album makes its statement right up front, as the opener, “Home Is a Fire,” sets aside the certainties of youth for the uncertain future of the settled; its brisk percussion attack and heavy vocal compression caution us to “Sleep with the lights on / Shutter the shade.” While they’re still smart guys, and sensitive, and they still have guitars, Death Cab is clearly no longer a “smart, sensitive guys with guitars” band, and Codes and Keys is an album of textures and tones;  the vagueness of the codes, and the quizzical nature of the keys, makes you stick with it to explore beneath the surface. Where tracks like “Monday Morning” and “Underneath the Sycamore” call back to 2008’s Narrow Stairs, the band has layered the tracks with an almost Eno-like density, so that first time through you grab onto the radio-ready choruses, but you go back again for the buzzing undercurrents, and the suggestion that the poppiness is less of the moment, more than it is looking back on a youthful time past. And even when the lyrical indirectness shades into the outright vague, the musical invention on display (including appearances from San Francisco’s Magik*Magik Orchestra, some ricky-tick piano, and what sounds like a German band) keep the interest from ever flagging.

FLOGGING MOLLY – SPEED OF DARKNESS

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

After hearing the Dropkick Murphys widen the historical range of their songwriting on this year’s Going Out Of Style, one wondered if America’s other pre-eminent Celtic punkers were going to up the ante. The answer: in spades. While previous Flogging Molly albums have never lacked for passion, intelligence, and emotion, this time those qualities are married to a searing anger, as song after song blasts the miserable economic circumstances of today’s America, and never hesitates to point fingers at those responsible, as when Dave King lambasts the “blood-sucking leech CEOs” on the shanty-like “The Power’s Out,” or bemoans “the working man without any work” whose “money in the bank is now history” on “Revolution.”  Really, as Detroiters, King and Bridget Regan were the logical choice to come up with an album this timely, and this angry. This isn’t to say it’s depressing, by any means: if anything, their optimistic faith in the eventual triumph of the spirit of blue-collar America feels a tad naïve (particularly when you consider how much that segment of the populace is embracing the tea party).

I don’t know how longtime fans will feel about the album’s sound: for all its ragged fury, the production is a little plusher than usual, with the guitars veering closer to metal than punk, the acoustic instruments recorded with crystal clarity, and the separation of the vocal tracks open and comfortable; King no longer seems to be fighting to be heard over the rest of the band. But it’s a fascinating tradeoff: perhaps King regards the words of these songs as too important to be left to the vagaries of punk enthusiasm. In any case, the musical maturity that produced the starkly beautiful piano melody of “The Cradle of Humankind,” and the gentle vocal interplay between King and Regan on “A Prayer For Me In Silence,” is worth confounding some of the band’s more doctrinaire followers. And never fear: when King concludes the album by spitting out “Let us all rise up and be counted!“, he does mean all of us.
 

THE BLASTERS – LIVE 1986

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

By 1986, the wheels had pretty much come off one of the first, and arguably the finest, of American roots music bands. Though their retro outfits pegged them as rockabilly revivalists, the Blasters’ command of pre-Beatles music was comprehensive: with the aid of the duo saxophones of Lee Allen and Steve Berlin, and the fleet, pumping piano of Gene Taylor, the Blasters mixed rockabilly with blues and R&B (their MTV breakout video was a cover not of Carl Perkins or Buddy Holly, but Little Willie John’s “I’m Shakin’.”), employing an energy that allied them with punk. To that was added the songwriting of Dave Alvin, a muscular mixture of John Fogerty and Merle Haggard. His blazing guitar, his brother Phil’s plaintive vocals, and the furious rhythm section of drummer Bill Bateman and bassist John Bazz made The Blasters arguably the premier live American act of the early 80’s. But pressure from their record label exacerbated the inevitable tensions between the Alvin brothers; by 1986, Warners/Slash had dropped them (after forcing them to dump the saxes and record with John Mellencamp), Dave had left the band, tired of “writing songs for my brother to sing”, Berlin had fled to Los Lobos, Taylor was taking some time off, leaving Phil Alvin, Bazz and Bateman to try and soldier on with pickup guitarists and no pipeline to new material.

Which makes this recently-discovered live tape remarkable: two months after leaving The Blasters, Dave Alvin stepped in at the last minute to save a Philadelphia booking, and made what would be his final appearance with the band for nearly twenty years. The four-piece version of The Blasters never misses a beat as they rip through a stunning set: seeing Dave Alvin as the “grand old man” of roots music on an episode of Justified brings into focus the amazing catalog of songs he’d amassed in just his first few years: the historical sweep of “Jubilee Train,” the bleak Reagan-era landscapes of “Just Another Sunday” and “Dark Night,” the sweetly funny barroom tearjerker “Help You Dream,” and two of the greatest songs ever written about the power of popular music: “Border Radio” and “American Music.” And while Dave’s desire to find his own voice was understandable, that took him the better part of two decades; brother Phil’s singing had all the supple urgency that Dave’s writing demanded, and even today, there’s no question that, on pure vocal ability, Dave’s songs were always better served by his brother. Not only is Phil in his usual fine voice on this recording, but his harmonica fills in the spaces left  by the saxes to the point where they’re barely missed. The recorded sound is punchy, if a little diffuse, and longtime fans will be delighted to find three previously unrecorded covers (including a wicked “Somebody Hoodooed the Hoodoo Man”). Honestly, the only thing that keeps me from recommending this as the perfect starter set for new fans is the fact that their entire Slash album catalog, with bonus tracks, is available for only a few dollars more on the 2-CD set Testament. But as a document of the brothers Alvin just as their wave crested, it’s more than worthwhile.

ELIAN ELIAS – LIGHT MY FIRE

BUY IT FROM AMAZON!

I’d call her Brazil’s answer to Diana Krall, but Elias posed the question first. Eliane Elias was a prodigy, teaching music theory in university while still in her teens, and collaborating with such giants of Brazilian music as singer/songwriter Toquinho and longtime Jobim partner Vinicius de Moraes. Her early 80’s work in Steps Ahead is a little glib in the manner of the era, but since striking out on her own, she’s been a significant figure in the development of Brazilian jazz, both as a vocalist and as a pianist of the first rank. This latest album finds her reaching back to the days before bossa nova, with Dorival Caymmi’s “Rosa Morena,” with stops in the 50’s (a stunning, seductive “Take Five,” with Elias’ scatting playing counterpoint to her fluid piano), the 60’s (besides the title song, there’s “Stay Cool,” a deliberate throwback to the days when bossa nova first hit the U.S.), and on up through the present, with a set of evocative originals, including “What About The Heart (Bate Bate),” one of several tracks featuring the legendary Gilberto Gil. The band is sumptuous: Romero Lubambo and Oscar Castro-Neves on guitar, Elias’ husband Marc Johnson on bass, drummer Paulo Braga, and a reunion with first husband, trumpeter Randy Brecker, and their daughter, singer-songwriter Amanda Brecker. I don’t know that even Elias can find much new to say about “My Cherie Amour,” or the title song, but that’s a minor detail, really: from her throaty duet with Gil on the samba “Aquele Abraco” to the way she echoes the loping bass figure on “Made in Moonlight” to the giddy wordplay of “Turn To Me,” Elias gives every track a musical and aural identity of its own; always part of the tradition, but never locked into derivation.

OTHER NOTABLE 5/31 RELEASES:

Eddie Vedder – Ukelele Songs. Pretty much what it says, and it’s fascinating to hear Vedder modulate his voice to meet the subtler needs of the reduced accompaniment. The new originals are a bonus; the covers more of a mixed bag (“Dream a Little Dream”? uh… no).

My Morning Jacket – Circuital. If you thought Evil Urges was more dumb than evil, and you never quite warmed up to the whole “Yim Yames” thing, this will be a return to form. If you thought that even failed experimentation was better than none, and that this band needed an injection of loopiness in the first place… well, too bad.

Various Artists – Playing for Change 2: Music Around the World. Second volume of this impressive world music project ranges from Bob Marley dueting with his son to a backing of Indian tabla and Keb Mo’s funky guitar, to Tinarwen giving a “desert blues” treatment to Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground;” further stops in South America, Italy, and Japan are equally rewarding.

Dave Matthews Band – Live at Wrigley Field. I can’t imagine anyone needing my opinion on this one; either you want it or you don’t.

Black Stone Cherry – Between the Devil & The Deep Blue Sea. A song cycle on the tribulations of being a “White Trash Millionaire.” You’ll be relieved to know that it’s evidently survivable.

David Sylvian, Died in the Wool. Reworked tracks from 2009’s MANAFON, along with a few new songs. So, good news for the four people in America who still remember him. I hear in Germany,though, they can’t wait.

The Vaccines – What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? Imagine Best Coast fronted by Warren Zevon, or a Raveonettes album with more than one melody. Almost exactly that weird, and a shitload of fun.

Scarcity of Miracles – a King Crimson Projekct. Robert Fripp and Mel Collins return in 5.1 sound. Super-duper DVD, limited edition vinyl… and there’s a guy from Level 42, who I mostly recall as being the reason I got to meet Madonna (I was working for their record company when they opened for her). Bet it sounds in-fucking-credible.

From Bikes to Trains to VIDEO GAMES – With BRIAN CONDRY!

As of this recording, PSN should be healed – or within mere hours of being healed. Most everything should be updated, trust should be restored. Right?! It’s the end of May! YOU PROMISED!

This is the weakest week until some point in the far future. Like July. So maybe save your money, cause next week is gonna’ be nuts.

HUNTED: THE DEMON’S FORGE (PS3; XBOX 360; PC; retail)

The devs started down a dark path by selling this game as the “fantasy Gears of War.” YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Thusly, it is a cover-based third person stabber. And arrower. And majicker. It doesn’t look bad, per se – just a bit undercooked. There is a “build your own dungeon” thing, which is cool – but that D&D game that came out last week looks to do pretty much what this does at a fraction of the cost, even though it’s kinda’ not great.

BLAZBLUE: CONTINUUM SHIFT (PSP; 3DS; retail)

I don’t know shit about BlazBlue. It’s like the Guilty Gear, right guys? I still have one of the Guilty Gears for my PS2. It was fun. But more importantly…A PSP GAME! It’s like seeing a dodo in the wild.

OTHER NOTABLE 5/31 RELEASES:

Another Sims 3 expansion. ANOTHER SIMS 3 EXPANSION.

Also, it appears as if the 5th episode of the BACK TO THE FUTURE: THE GAME game is out this week.
