Edit: Christgau has posted a report here.
A lot of thing has happened since I went vacationing a few weeks back, and generally spent as much time as possible offline. The Grammys, for example, but I'm not in the mood to write too much about that. I admire Spalding's talent, and I'm happy she won, but her music interests me very little - to me it's all chops, no substance. As for Arcade Fire, well theirs was easily my favorite album of the ones that were nominated.
Hoping to have a fresh Listening Booth up by early next week. Other than that, check out the recent links from the web, "Subject to Change", on the right hand column.
