On Looking Into a Pile of Promo Envelopes

mail.jpg

Anybody else heard this new collaboration between DJ Spooky and Dave Lombardo of Slayer, Drums of Death, featuring Chuck D., Dalek, Meredith Monk, Vernon Reid and others? Just looking at it makes me afraid it's going to splooge all parties involved with glutinous sticky humiliation. Should I be?

The Maximo Park album? I would've passed it by without a blink, not least for its pointless umlautage, but Franklin likes them so much (see item #4), I'll haveta ... what's the audio equivalent of "scope it out" - for giving something a quick scan with your ears? Something more vivid than "give it a listen" or "check it out"? Suggestion box is open.

Jaga Jazzist is now, with new disc What We Must, just "Jaga." We would like to express our support. I personally never have been able to bring myself to listen to a Jaga Jazzist record because their name was so repulsive. (Yes, I am like that.) But a Jaga record? Sure, I'll taste a spoonful... I wonder if it's a tribute to Mick Jagger's accent? Prob'ly not.
