    Okay, I saw this in the thread earlier, got it, got the signed pink vinyl for my (sadly) vinyl-obsessed son and have listened repeatedly.

    This is an outstanding record. Whitehorse is a great "band" (if a married couple qualify as a band), and this is them at their best. It's clearly a candidate for my best-of-the-year list, and I'd be really surprised if it doesn't get nominated and probably awarded a host of prizes.

    The band and the album are that vanishing breed of things, the singer-songwriter concept fused with rock and roll. They have mastered rockabilly in the past, done the more acoustic kind of thing, and morphed into this very powerful audio powerhouse, with fine fuzzy and dirty guitar, elements of hip hop, intelligent lyrics of a particularly combustible and rhythmic type, and the overall power of an intelligent duo at the peak of their prowess.

    Highly recommended.

    And now for something completely different!

    What Renee (pronounced reenee, not in the French way) Rosnes does is a kind of "traditional" post-bop jazz, with some very good musicians around her -- saxophonist and flutist Steve Wilson, vibraphonist Steve Nelson, bassist Peter Washington and drummer Bill Stewart. She is a fine jazz pianist and composer, and her inclination is to order her thoughts thematically. In this case, the conceptual framework is around geological time and the creation of the foundation of all that we know, the rocks we live on.

    But it's not abstract, at least not any more than any jazz. The album is a wonderful melodic and rhythmic exploration of much of what we value in modern jazz.

    It doesn't have much in common with Whitehorse's Panther In The Dollhouse, aside from the principal artists being Canadian and the excellence of the music. But it certainly makes for a very nice addition to the current playlist.

    I should note that both this and the Whitehorse release benefit from the "album" treatment. Individual tracks are less important than the overall sequence. Sadly old fashioned.
