Here are the reviews I'm
working on for this month.

Amazon: Thee Emergency - Can You Dig It? [yes!], The Submarines - Declare a New State, McKids Adventures - Get Up and Go With Ronald, Pink - Live in Europe ("God is a DJ"), Winter Passing (Ed Harris, Will Ferrell, and Zooey Deschanel), Beavis and Butt-head - The Mike Judge Collection: Volume Two [three-disc set] (I also reviewed Volume One), Various Artists - '80s Hits Stripped (acoustic versions of MTV staples), Alexi Murdoch - Time Without Consequence, Ism - Monkey Underneath, Madame Curie (Mervyn LeRoy reunites with Greer "Mrs. Miniver" Garson), Mike's Murder (Debra Winger plus Joe Jackson soundtrack), Don't Come Knocking (Wim Wenders reunites with Sam "Paris, Texas" Shepard), Thinking XXX - A Film by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders (porn stars on porn stars--metaphorically that is), PJ Harvey - On Tour: Please Leave Quietly, The Rockford Files - Season Two [six-disc set], and Tracey Takes on - Season Two [three-disc set].

Resonance: Lisa Germano - In the Maybe World (less catchy, but still compelling), Mika Miko - C.Y.S.L.A.B.F., Broadcast - The Future Crayon (EP tracks and rarities), and an article on Ed Kuepper/the Laughing Clowns in light of the Cruel, But Fair boxed set.

Seattle Sound: Local/DIY releases by Mike Dumovich (Mesojunarian) and one-man band Pipsqueak (Babydoll).

Siffblog: C.R.A.Z.Y. and QuinceaƱera, We Go Way Back (Lynn Shelton's dazzling debut), Me You Them and House of Sand (both by Andrucha Waddington, the former revamped from a previous review), Cedric Klapisch's Russian Dolls, and interviews with Keith Fulton (Brothers of the Head), John Schienfeld (Who is Harry Nilsson?), and Michel Gondry (The Science of Sleep). The previous entry duplicates the first two reviews as Siffblog was down at the time.
