In other news, I’ve added reviews of the recent Soccer Mommy and Nadia Reid releases to their artist pages. They work in different genres – Soccer Mommy recalls 1990s rockers like Liz Phair and Sheryl Crow, while Nadia Reid is a singer-songwriter – but they have a lot in common. They’re both tall, they both have songs on their new albums about resisting Satan (‘Lucy’, Get The Devil Out’), and they both released new albums that are worthy but don’t quite measure up to their previous records. Color Theory is a little lethargic after the first couple of tracks, while Out of my Province suffers from over-polished production.
In Coronavirus news, we’re in our first day of lockdown in New Zealand – basically only allowed off the property for essential shopping. It will probably affect my blog output somewhat as my wife and I juggle working from home and having the kids home from school. At the time of writing, we’ve had 205 cases and no deaths yet – hopefully our 28 day lockdown stamps it out before it gets too widespread. New Zealand’s always hilariously small; the All of Government Controller, John Ombler, is my mother-in-law’s cousin.
