Hairstyle I most want to see make a comeback:
Jesus and Mary Chain hair
Plus I would like there to be another band about whom I could say I don't care if many of their lyrics are lame, they are still seeewww guud!
Band who really needs to release a new album before I explode:
Reconstruction Site was a damn fine album, but 2003 was a lifetime ago.
I also want to lose that feeling of impending dread when I see albums like the Crane Wife being sold in Starbucks. That's just possessiveness on my part. I want the bands I love to do well and I love telling people about them, so why do I feel oodgy when I see their albums being sold like that? Or when I hear their music on tv shows?
Both the Decemberists and the Weakerthans have now had songs on Scrubs, and I am simultaneously thrilled and frightened. At least it wasn't the O.C.
Album releases I am most anticipating:
Matthew Good (I can't believe I almost forgot - please forgive me Matt)
