The Incomprehensible Conveyance of Simplexity

Where did July go? It evaporated while I was reading about some of the new releases coming up in the next few months. August brings remastered CD's of the first three (John Foxx led) Ultravox albums, which are ultra exxcellent, as well as several Captain Beefheart titles that have been out of print. New releases that I'm looking forward to include the live Hot Snakes disc Thunder Down Under (Aug. 15), Radio Birdman's Zeno Beach (Aug. 22), and the Roots' Game Theory (Aug. 29). On September 12, Richard Buckner's new album Meadow will be released.

I also noticed a new Gin Blossoms album, their first in ten years, coming out this month. It is entitled Major Lodge Victory. Let us peer further into the future: in October (or "Rocktober" as the witty DJ's call it) the recording industry will unleash the Hold Steady's Boys and Girls in America and the Pernice Brothers' Live a Little.

The funniest thing I read today was a press release for the new album by Deadsy, a California goth-rock group led by the clearly troubled son of Gregg Allman and Cher, wherein we learn that Deadsy "is adamantly committed to the realization of a comprehensive conveyance of simplicity and complexity's synergistic unions - a sort of 'simplexity' or 'complicity,' if you will."

No, I won't. But thanks for offering. The word "complicity" already exists, and it doesn't mean what you think it does, Dudsey. The word "simplexity" doesn't exist, and shouldn't. You get an "E" for effort, and a "T" for nice try. Stay in school, kids!

All my hopes and dreams rest on my faith that the new Hold Steady will be as great as Separation Sunday.

You and me both, brother! I saw the Hold Steady in April, and the new songs sounded good. There are a couple new songs available on the band's Myspace site.
