I heard the old B-52's song 'Roam' recently and remembered just how much I dislike the B52's. It's more a loathing of songs like Rock Lobster and Love Shack than Roam. In fact, I kind of like Roam. Kind of. And speaking of which (kind of), this week's playlist begins and ends in Rome.
If you like 'Rome' by Yeasayer, you'll love their 'Odd Blood' CD. I can't say enough good things about it. It's a brilliant fun pop record. I can't say enough good things about it.
I could say the same of the self titled CD by Telekinesis! And, yes, the exclamation point is part of the band name... except that they aren't really a band. Not exactly. Telekinesis! is the stage name of Michael Benjamin Lerner, though he has other members who tour. Obviously.
