I'd stay out here forever if I could

A review of Charles Burns' Black Hole up now at Salon. I liked it very, very much. (You have to sit through an ad, sorry.)

Occasionally, there is a frustrating disconnect between What I Gotta Listen To and What I Wanna Listen To. Tonight is one of those nights. The "wanna" belongs to One Kiss Can Lead to Another, the dumbfoundingly good "lost girl group sounds" boxed set that just came out. In a hat box, people. Did you know that Dolly Parton had made a really good girl-group record in the mid-'60s? Me neither. Of course, trying to find an image of the hat box just now, I discovered that Pitchfork 9.8'ed it a couple of days ago--yes, my enthusiasm is so Friday!
