Liminanas - Costa Blanca (Trouble in Mind Records) - courtesy of

Newly posted at, my review of Costa Blanca by the Liminanas.

Go here: ; won't you?

Previously, I reviewed their Crystal Anis album.

In fact, Crystal Anis was my No. 9 album of 2012.
Okay, let me tell you, Costa Blanca is no less of a record. And no, it didn't make my top 10 this year, because I digested it a bit late for inclusion. But top 10, 20, 50 lists are, you know, an imprecise science, more like a dubious art. Some might say bullshit.

What matters is the music, and the joy it brings.

So (en)joy this while you read the review at

Ezra Furman - Day of the Dog (Bar None Records) - courtesy of Paraphilia Magazine


Freshly posted with Paraphilia (a fantastic read all-around) is this ...

My review of the latest recording from rocker, singer-songwriter Ezra Furman. 

The album is called Day of the Dog, and it's quite good. Mind, a tolerance for shaggy-dog, occasionally pitch-challenged singers is required, but the material is great and I, for one, dig the singing. Terrific band, too. But hey ... read the review. 

And while you're reading, listen to some music by Mr. Furman and company.
