New Album Releases For Tuesday (11/18/2008)

New Album Releases For Tuesday (11/18/2008)
Fab Moretti

“I tell you this, I don’t know what’s going to happen man, but I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.” Jim Morrison on astrology

It’s a pretty good week for new releases. The debut album from Strokes’ drummer Fab Moretti’s side project Little Joy is the best of the bunch. Moretti is joined by Los Angeles native Binki Shapiro and Rodrigo Amarante (Los Hermanos). The band is playing December 7th @ The Troubadour. Tickets are still available (Buy Tix $15). I assume this show will sell out soon; hipsters paradise. That said, I just bought tickets.

Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan’s album Sunday At Devil Dirt is great.

Anathallo has created quite a buzz. Some bloggers are calling Canopy Glow one of the best albums of the year. I wouldn’t go that far. The musical arrangements are nice, but I still need to give it a few more listens.

I haven’t heard The Doors album, safe bet it’s good. Ditto with Belle & Sebastian.

Sacha Baron Cohen // Respect

Sacha Baron Cohen // Respect

From The CBC:
British actor Sacha Baron Cohen has returned to gate-crashing in the U.S., this time bringing his flamboyant gay fashion reporter character Bruno to a California rally calling for a ban on same-sex marriage.

Cohen, disguised as Bruno, joined marching demonstrators outside Los Angeles City Hall on Sunday and mingled with the crowd. The march was in support of Proposition 8, which seeks to overturn a state Supreme Court ruling that allows gay and lesbians to wed.

Photographers and reporters covering the rally eventually recognized Cohen, the star of the blockbuster faux documentary film Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Though they tried to approach the star, members of his film crew attempted to shield him. He was later ushered away in a van.

Cohen has been filming a new mockumentary film starring Bruno, who along with Borat was first introduced in his cable comedy program Da Ali G Show.

In the past few months, the British star has crashed several fashion show catwalks in France and in Italy, dressed as Bruno. In Milan, his stunt briefly landed him in police detention, before a colleague could vouch for him.

In December, the Los Angeles-based Cohen told a U.K. newspaper that he was retiring Ali G (the dim-witted hip-hop interviewer) and Borat (the uncouth reporter from Kazakhstan) because they have become too well-known and he was increasingly unable to dupe new interviewees.

My Morning Jacket // West End Girls

My Morning Jacket // West End Girls

My Morning Jacket’s cover of the Pet Shop Boys’West End Girls” seemed like a strange musical choice for the southern-rock band at the time. It turns out that Jim James has always had a penchant for pop music. He finally had the confidence and label support [ATO] to express this side of himself on Evil Urges. I look forward to seeing which direction James explores on the next album.

The Conchords’
Inner City Pressure” is a flawless parody of “West End Girls“. It showcases their talent and strength as singer-songwriters. I expect them to record a serious album once the series ends.

Mitch Hedberg – The Dufrenes

Mitch Hedberg   The Dufrenes

I’m really disappointed that I did not have the opportunity to catch one of Mitch Hedberg’s live shows. There is no question that he was the smartest and funniest comedians of his generation. He’s been compared to Steven Wright, but I think that Hedberg’s act is edgier and more entertaining.

I’m warming up to Mitch’s new comedy LP Do You Believe In Gosh?, but I prefer Mitch All Together.
