The Baseball Project Batting 1.000


from Broadside Ballads

All-star sluggerrockers Steve Wynn, Linda Pitmon, Peter Buck, and Scott McCaughey return for their second at-bat, pitch, inning, game, or something (choose your favorite baseball analogy). It's quickly apparent that if it's batting you choose, they're two-for-two. If it's inning, you can replay the first one here at Powerpopulist or steal over to Bandcamp or Yep Roc Records or ESPN. One nice thing about those other sites is that they'll do an infinitely better job of explaining wth's going on here. Maybe a "blogger's" not supposed to do this kind of thing, but I would like to dedicate this song to my dear friend chadio, a diehard Cubbies fan. Of course, I hope you all like it.

Weezer's Cuomo Jams With Grrrrls

Um, over here, grrrrrrls.


This is so two months ago, but I recently read at Glorious Noise of an intriguing appearance by Weezer frontperson Rivers Cuomo on Chicago Public Radio's Sound Opinions. Cuomo was backed unrehearsedly by Windy City rockpunkgrrrls, The Cathy Santonies. Obviously I liked what I heard, else it wouldn't be up there. You will find four more songs at GloNo if it clicks with you, too, and you're up for more clicking.
