Around the Blogosphere: Smithereens, Marshall Crenshaw, Long Ryders, Furniture, La's, J & M Chain, Smiths, Neutral Milk Hotel, Primal Sceam, more. . .

Ye olde Retro Music Snob is out of control with great stuff. I'm having to pull all kinds of shenanis to get around my "no-more-than-five-at-a-time-from-da-Snob" policy, like just going ahead and breaking it. Feels good. Silly, stupid, pathetic rule anyway. Also, all on my own I happily found a couple of songs Gary links to before seeing them again at RMS. (Like it matters anyway, we're all in this together, etc., etc., yay, team, rah rah rah, shut up and post.)
The Smithereens - Time and Time Again - Retro Music Snob
Marshall Crenshaw - Someday Someway - Retro Music Snob - Unbefreakinlievable, one of my all-time faves by Crenshaw
The Long Ryders - Looking For Lewis and Clark - Retro Music Snob - Superb roots rock! A long-time fave - Again, right outtathe park, man.
Furniture - Brilliant Mind - Retro Music Snob - veddy British, veddy 80s, veddy nice
The La’s - Son of a Gun - Retro Music Snob

This would be enough for a super week, but there's more.
The Jesus and Mary Chain - Just Like Honey - Retro Music Snob - This and the next one showed up here previously, but you might have missed it and of course you don't want to.
The Smiths - There is a Light that Never Goes Out - Retro Music Snob
Neutral Milk Hotel - Tuesday Moon - Eardrums
Primal Scream - Gentle Tuesday - Eardrums
Foo Fighters - Monkey Wrench - 17 Seconds

Some visitors don't seem to go for some of the newer goods. This is both understandable and a bit of a shame because one of my main goals here is to find good new artists and share what I like. But of course it's your call. (Big of me, I know, but I just can't help it.)
Eisley - Many Funerals - A Plague of Angels
Foreign Born - Into Your Dream - Dead Flowers: Anglophiles Anonymous
Violent Vector and the Lovely Lovelies - Can You Dig It - Electric Sailor
Rebecca Scott - The Book of Love - Hits in the Car - Lovely
Spy Machine 16 - On Struggle for Changes and Hope - i (heart) music

I found and downed more, but that'll do for now.

Thanks, John. I really appreciate the feedback. I'll continue to post some of each: new, recent, older. I hope your son gets off to a great start on the great adventure. I'm locking up my daughters and buying two more Dobermans, in case he wanders south. :-)))

Thanks, Ekko! That's a high compliment, coming from such a distinguished blogger as yourself. I'm returning the favor.
