When it rains it pours....

Rolling Stone really liked Feist's new album:

With a career history that includes stints with Peaches, Broken Social Scene and Kings of Convenience, Canada's Lesley Feist brings uncommon breadth and individuality to the swoony indie lounge pop of her U.S. debut. Her hushed croon evokes the jazz tingle of Peggy Lee and her melodicism hearkens back to Tin Pan Alley, but Feist proves she's a modern gal with a sparse yet varied sound that draws from chamber pop, chill-out, postmodern folk, Burt Bacharach and beyond. Feist's own songs on the disc's first half segue imperceptibly into a string of well-chosen cover tunes that confirm her nuanced good taste, particularly as she gently renders Ron Sexsmith's "Secret Heart" and the Bee Gees' "Love You Inside Out" as if they were penned by the same lovesick soul: herself.

I had a good day. I sat in a small room for six hours and moved around denture teeth a rim of wax. Man it was awesome. I did get a nice commute in tonight and got rained on twice on the way home....when it rains it pours:
Stars - Your Ex-Lover Is Dead
The Shins - When I Goosestep
Kings of Leon - The Bucket
System of a Down - Violent_Pornography
System of a Down - Old_School_Hollywood
