One-sentence reviews #7


Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Mosquito

(Interscope)

!! CAUTION !!
Karen, are you okay? :(

***

Lisa Germano
No Elephants

(Badman)

Like a dead-quiet Nicolas Jaar or Owen Pallett with much more baggage of history (she's been getting quieter and quieter since '92 or thereabouts), but nothing here sticks to me; it does sound pleasingly weird on headphones, though.

***

Iron & Wine
Ghost on Ghost

(Nonesuch)

!! CAUTION !!
or, Dork Diaries: Selections from the Not-So-Great American Songbook; the last blow-wad major label debut record was like outtakes from his Sub Pop period, this is like stuff he'd have discarded before the tape started rolling then, but I guess there are mouths to feed, the only reasonable justification for how freaking far this guy's fallen.
