Antony and the Johnsons
The Crying Light (SECRETLY CANADIAN)
“The Crying Light” aimed to deal with all things natural, but Antony’s stunning voice borders on the supernatural.
Radio Retaliation (18TH STREET LOUNGE)
The “Garden State” soundtrack’s grooviest contributor beefed up the beats and horns on their latest release, assuring us that the D.C. natives’ brand of electronic-world-lounge has more to offer than a bedtime drone.
The Bird and the Bee
Ray Guns Are Not Just the Future (BLUE NOTE)
Alternative pop with a girly, yet guiltless, soul. If their last song made it to the “Sex and the City” film soundtrack, you know you want to buy this album. Or not.
John Updike (1932 – 2009)
Rabbit series (BALLANTINE)
Thoughts from an American master:
“Most of American life consists of driving somewhere and then returning home, wondering where the hell you went.”
-Rabbit at Rest
