What I will be listening to this week for various assignments:

The new Ne-Yo (two listens in, sounds like a grower--subtle, moody, mature, the usual)
Brother Ali, Shadows on the Sun; Cows, Cunning Stunts; Fog; Happy Apple, The Peace Between Our Companies; Mint Condition, Livin’ the Luxury Brown; Sean Na Na, My Majesty (Twin Cities, they're ganging up on me)
The Best of Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour Vol. 1 and 2 (Chrome Dreams) and Theme Time Radio Hour with Your Host Bob Dylan (Ace) (the Dylan Industry strikes again)
The new Matthew Herbert Big Band
The new Simon Bookish
The new Murs (if it arrives on time)
Madlib's WLIB AM: King of the Wigflip and Madvillainy 2: The Madlib Remix (twofer, obv.; playing the Jackson Conti as well I've decided I don't care for it at all)
Fucked Up (it it arrives on time)
Kruder & Dorfmeister, DJ-Kicks (like so many DJs their best album is a mix-CD--an exceptionally cheesy one, too; yum)
The new Of Montreal
Various singles

Wish me luck!
