An Actual Update

steely-dan-essential-songs-2017-listen-23e00365-05ec-4359-ab0a-f89c092213bcWith 2018 beginning, it seemed like high time to get a few fresh links up here, even though much of my written output of late has been print-only, like my reviews of Pretzel Logic and Donald Fagen’s Sunken Condos for Uncut’s Steely Dan special issue (see above demonstration of withering sarcasm), plus a long review of the very fine new album by H.C. Entire for the February 2018 issue and recent features on King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and The Weather Station. I also review Blade Runner 2049 for the winter 2018 issue of Cinema Scope. And there’s a review of Roman J. Israel for the February 2018 issue of Sight & Sound.

Nevertheless, here are some recent long reviews for Uncut that I’m happy to see in the world.

The Clientele – Music for the Age of Miracles

Broken Social Scene – Hug of Thunder

Feist – Pleasure

And I very much enjoyed getting to write a short history of shilling foreign films to American audiences on the basis of their smut content.
