Comment: Either Jimi Hendrix or David Byrne could be my most anticipated album of the week but they can’t because I’ve already heard them both on NPR’s First Listen (here). David Byrne has always been too weird and too studiedly artist to be one of the greats, but American Utopia is a solid piece of work, Grade: B+.  At this point in time the Hendrix cottage industry could last as long as the Presley, it has already run laps around 2Pac, Both Sides Of The Sky is post-Electric Ladyland studio outtakes. Grade: B+. The Strokes are the most overrated band on all time and Hammond is the least anticipated new release of the week. OK, on to what we want and next week is packed with goodies: the new Embrace single is terrific, Judas Priest, The Fratellis, Suicidal Tendencies, and most of all Lil Yachty, might have won on a different week. But Young Fathers are one of the greatest bands in the world today and I am more than excited for their first new album in THREE YEARS, the single “Toy” is a must hear.
